View Full Version : Seriously? Ice Barrier? WHY?

1st July 2020, 02:28 PM
I'm pretty sure nobody actually intends to use Ice Barriers and nobody actually wants them to be a good deck.

A bunch of you probably just saw Ice Barriers set as the third-highest voted deck when the mid-term article was released on June 25th and then -- just you did with getting E-Hero Stratos unbanned in TCG at the heavy cost of having AHL go to 1 -- meme'd the deck archetype into first place as you went over to the website and dropped your votes in.

Now, Gusto are lost to us and WIND loses yet another opportunity to become relevant to the game after that joke of an attempt at Link-era Harpies.

(I just came here to rant, tbh. I actually just stick with Shaddoll-hybrid decks these days and I've stopped taking this game seriously ever since the tournaments rules started to prohibit hand/deck verification and for some reason also needed to mandate bathing.)

I'm probably not coming back to respond, because of how elitist people are with their discussions and the obvious dogmatism when it comes to deck strats (a.k.a. "copy JP deck recipes and pretend to be a pro as you dump on everyone else").

been ruminating on this for a while, perhaps more than i should have, but sorry to hear about your garbage taste, thanks for putting words into the mouths of people that wanted ice barriers to be playable, and congrats on gusto getting like 3 cards of support that instantly makes it better than the 10 ice barriers got.

now we also have to sit through kaiser.dek getting another nightmarishly boring round of 'protect the castle' support while overdramatic wieners like you get more cards for your boring 'ram 10 weenie monsters in and OTK because my opponent summoned a monster' deck, and harpies, as a DM character's deck will continue to get new cards every three years at worst.

yeah, ice barriers are a 'meme'. does that instantly mean there was not a single person that actually wanted them to be good?

you're gonna whine about elitism when the entire rest of your post is gatekeeping?

pal, fuck off. you lost fair and square, your garbo archetype with no lore relevance is still getting a way better deal than us, and you're STILL gonna whine it's not t1.
