    That's true for a LOT of decks. Peaple is just scared because the old combos are not possible anymore and they claim that "Master Rule 5 killed my deck!", without even trying giving it a run.
    For example, I've updated my Buster Blader deck for Link format and it's just as good as before. I can "consistently" (as much as a Buster Blader deck can be) summon RDA Bane, summon Abyss and 3 tuners with their effects, and then go for links. Lots of peaple claimed my deck was dead, and I've proven them wrong.

    I really hope they're gonna support OLDER themes with this pack. First/Second Duel Terminal generations (Worms, Ice Barriers, Laval...) really deserve more supports, and not only because they need link monsters per se, but also because they need new cards.
    I also hope Mecha Phantom Beasts get their link. It'd work wonderfully with their token strategy, and they really need a consistent token-generator outside of the main trio (Raptor, Wolf, Harrliard) and Aerial Recharge.
    I'm using this forum to improve my english while also talking about a hobby of mine. Sorry for my grammatical mistakes.

    Mecha Phantom Beasts would be an obvious shoe-in.

    I still wonder how accurate that rumor is? It doesn't mention Burning Abyss and Gladiator Beasts, which were already confirmed, but it did name Qli before Twitter did. Granted, the latter could have been a lucky break.

    buster blader and RDAs do have a lot of revival stuff too! it's nice.

    but the point isn't 'they have things they can do to go around it', the point is 'they have FIVE MONSTERS TO CIRCUMVENT IT', most of which being EASILY summoned from the extra deck.

    D/Ds have had an insane amount of good support, and i think other archetypes deserve something, too. you can want links, just don't complain that D/Ds 'deserve' it.

    there are plenty of archetypes that still need support for this new era to function on even the MOST BASIC OF LEVELS, the most egregious of examples here being ignknights, which can without hyperbole, literally do jack shit, as their main gimmick, popping themselves to set up for a huge pendulum summon, isn't really a thing with the new pendulum summon rules.

    fusion/synchro heavy decks don't need it nearly as much as say, an xyz-heavy deck. xyz monsters have no materials when revived, so the best option here is to either replenish those materials, or just summon them to linked zones. any xyz deck that likes having more than one xyz monster out at a time are also a good pick.

    quants, maybe geargias? tellars, lswarm. inzektors and digital bugs? hieratics.

    trying to think of non-anime Xyz decks, because there's a lot of zexal era anime ones that could use help, too, and i get confused.

    there's also decks that lack swarming power that links demand, but would really like more than one Extra Deck monster. stuff like Battlin' Boxers(not eligible for this pack).

    and thirdly, pendulum decks that were designed around pendulum summoning from the ED. igknights.

    these three should be focused on for new support before an archetype as well-supported and still as good as Declan's Devious Dudes.

    The only thing that I took from that was that excellent acronym.

    Another rumor batch. This one's been out for about a week, but I'm just now posted it here. The translation comes from NeoArkadia, as is usual. (He doesn't come here anymore, I guess.)

    Normal Standard of "Might be truth but also surronded by a ton of bull****" and backed by some truth:

    Dude claimed Guiding Light and Ties of the Brethren would be in Wave of Light.

    He's also claimed back in late August:
    - New "C" related card
    - New Archfiend related card (for note this could easily be Vector Square Archfiend)
    - New Noble Knight card (Glory of the Noble Knights)
    - New Ghostrick card (Ghostrick Reform)

    3 Days ago, he claimed the following (and lol if Italian YGO tries to pedal this as truth):

    LINK VRAINS Pack:

    Included Themes:
    - Archfiend
    - lswarm
    - Gem-Knight
    - Hieratic
    - Prophecy
    - Madolche
    - Noble Knight
    - Shaddoll
    - Zefra
    - Metalfoes
    - Invoked

    Reprints:
    - Gem-Knight Seraphinite
    - Evilswarm Kerykeion
    - Spellbook of Secrets
    - Madolche Queen Tiaramisu
    - Noble Knight Medraut
    - El Shaddoll Winda
    - Dante, Traveler of the Burning Abyss
    - Aleister the Invoker

    Any thoughts?

    If true, these 11 plus the 3 we know make 14 known themes. That would leave 6 of 20 unaccounted for.

    Hmm...I'm VERY doubtful on anything from DT because we'd have to see how they'd all fit into the lore.
