Alright anons, get ready for a cluster fuck and a half as I QM this monstrosity.Bam. Here's your deck. You all can use Google to read up on the cards. https://pastebin.com/raw/hk5HGKSTA bit of context before we start.>This is an AU, mainly because having OP characters running around and having adventures for themselves is annoying to write in. Plus it's been an eons since I've seen the older series, I'd likely write the characters 'wrong'.>We'll he hitting off around the time GX would. So there are duel academies, no synchro, no abc-xyz and definitely no Pendufaggots.>Events will differ from the show. This'll usually be because I forgot the timeline.Alright.Everyone settled in?----Duel Monsters has grown a fair amount since the day Yugi Moto became the King of Games. It's influence spread far and wide across the globe with politicians and heck even royalty joining in on the action.... Of course this demand bumped up the price of cards significantly. You miss the days where a five card pack cost as little as $3.15.. Now they sell as little as 50 bucks a pop.. It's not unheard of for militias to be raised to protect some of the more valuable cards. SWATs are called in to protect a 'lucky winner' or to handle hostage situations related to this childre's card game.Suffice to say, if you get big at the game.. You get big.And that's what you plan on doing. Becoming big. Regardless of your reasons, the amount of influence and wealth you'd earn if you succeed would be quite something for a country bumpkin such as yourself.You're finally 15, of age to apply for high school and you have your eyes set on the Duel Academy. Or perhaps a Duel Community College.. Considering your family worked pastures, your allowance was never too great. You'd have to wait months to buy a new pack, even one of the cheaper ones. As such your collection of cards is rather limited and your deck is crudely built.Ah well, you'll be able to go part time soon enough - Your deck shouldn't be a problem for too long.Back to the present though.Today is the only chance you'll get this year to make it into the Duel Academy - Today they're hosting their entrance examinations. One written exam along with several dueling practicals.Out of curiostiy.. How well do you think you did on the written exam?>roll 1d100. Best of 3.Besides you, after leaving the examination room and returning to the lonny, sits a sobbing boy not much older than yourself.>Console the kid.>Why the hell should you care about the competition? Ignore him the best you can.>"Hey kid, some people are trying to focus here."

>Some people are trying to focus here."Oi kid." He doesn't look up. "Some people are trying to focus here, you sniveling isn't fair on them."He doesn't respond although his groaning and sniveling seems to have subsided. Thank god.You get an appreciative nod from another applicant seated nearby but that's all. You spend the rest of your wait in an awkward silence between a bunch of antisocial kids and a broken wreck beside you.Your group number is called out and you head off the Arena for the practical examination. There an assistaint explains that you'll be competing against a current student within the school. A single match will be held, the aim is to use strategy, chains, combos and brute force to fight the enemy. Each turn you are graded on your performance and points are tallied at the end. Therefore you don't necessarily need to win although that'll earn you a ton of points, especially if it's a one sided victory.The arena itself is seperated into small spaces for dueling. As such several duels can take place at the same time, reducing the time taken to assess every applicant. Above there's a seating area littered with teenagers wearing blues, reds and yellows. Current students looking for potential or just to encourage their friends...You're called up, and you step inside one of the dueling rooms. On the other end is a silent, noticeably round boy clad in Ra yellow. He nods at you. Cleary nobody here is in the mood to chat. You can dig it.You both prepare your disks for a duel. Then in unison you activate your disks.Searching for duelist.Duelist located. Connecting...Connected.Duel initiated.Starting first..>It's time to duel.---Now for the nitty gritty. You all are going to be playing some Yu-Gi-Oh! No, seriously you are.I'll be relaying what the opponent does along with your cards and all that jazz.. but it'll be up to all of you anons to play this chaotic game.Don't forget to google the cards!---[LIFE POINTS: 8000][Enemy life points: 8000]> Start.

>>3143720lets play defense for now, see what they got before we do anything offense like
>>3143715Sure, I'll see what I can do.The incohesion is due to the Character anon. He was a farmboy who has an exoensive hobby. As such he doesn't have many cards at all.

>No.You'll keep your trap card for later.The boy then summons a "Hyper Hammerhead" (ATK 1500 || DEF 1200).He switches to the Battle phase and initiates an attack against your face down Renge.You can chain with either Negate Attack or Chain Detonation>Chain(with what?)>Don't counter.
>>3144755Just let it through, losing Renge hurts a bit but they'll be wide open for the next attack.
>>3144794>>3144783Ah, I forgot to mention Hyper Hammerhead's ability. If it attacks a monster and said monster isn't destroyed then it (the monster) is returned to your hand.Combine this with Degenerate Circuit and the monster would be removed from play.
>>3144805I'm saying this in case you all didn't know this and would like to change your vote.
>>3144805>>3144823I put in the vote with that in mind, we're not THAT dumb and you're probably insulting the intelligence of players for literally hammering this into our heads.
>>3144844Alright anon, I was just making sure. No need to get your knickers in a twist.---Your monster is flipped over and Hyper Hammerhead's attack continues.Due to your monster having a DEF of 2100, your opponent loses 600 Life points.Hyper Hammerhead's ability activates, as it did not destroy your Renge during battle it is returned to your hand.. Or it should have been if not for Degenerate Circuit, Ragne is instead removed from play.The boy ends his turn, your draw phase begins.>Drew 'Lucky Iron Axe'While contemplating your next turn, you look up to your quiet opponent.

>>3144987On a mobile but sure. Let me finish updating the cardlist and I'll make something.
>>3144925This quest is bound for destruction so fuck it, >Great Angus in ATK>Equip with Iron Axe>Attack>Ask a few questionsGot any twos? Also OP, Is there a chance we can run into any special archetype decks like Mermails or Madolche? What're the chances you recognize GX is just nostalgia and was actually kinda shit card wise? Or are you going to defend Vehicroids and Neo-Spacians as a viable archetype?
>>3144995It's destruction is ensured anon.>Got any twos?Level twos? What do you mean by this anon?Mermails? I hadn't thought about it but I guess it's possible.Oh I agree, the cards were shite. Jaden uses Superheroes. I just enjoy the idea of a Duel Monsters Academy and also I dislike the more recent additions to the cardgame.
>>3145013*itsI hate this dangfangled technobobbly contraption and its uneditable autocorrect
>>3145013I meant like, go fish. It's like Uno but you ask the person if they have X card and if they do they have to give the player their card. If not they say "go fish" and draw a card from the deck.Also while I can understand not liking Links and Pendulums, what's the problem with Synchros and XYZs? I know they're not "time appropriate" for a GX time line but they're still taught in later duel schools like Leo Duel School and where ever the Tops in 5Ds are taught. Plus they're like, SUPER easy to understand, with Synchros being addition and XYZs just being "have X number of X level monsters".Who hurt you OP?and I feel your pain. I'm phone posting RIGHT NOW cause 4chan thinks I'm IP spamming just cause I finally got FIOS installed
>>3145021>Who hurt you OP?Syrus. I could never beat that bastard in duel academy and it still haunts me.Oh no I don't hate Synchros or XYZ, I was playing that up. They won't be in the rp because it wouldn't be timeline appropriate. That's all there is to it anon.>Go fish.Never seen anyone play it before. Am I missing out on some crucial social action?
>>3145028Well of course you can't beat Syrus he has a fucking Cyber Dragon deck while the best everyone else had to work with was first gen D-Heroes. I still say a GX style quest is gonna blow cause of the very limited roster of actually good cards, and personally recommend a more ARC-V approach, where duel schools are a thing but they can have like, faction wars and the cards are all around better.As for go fish, it and Uno are pretty popular I guess. I still hear people make reference to it. Plus I konda wanna make a snappy character who makes reference to other games like Blackjack and Monopoly. Like we cuck someone with a trap and we're like "Do not pass go, do not collect 200 dollars!" Or we pull a top deck and we announce pur "get out of jail free card".
>>3144995This.>>3145028>am I missing outIt's a simple game, more suited for younger players.
"You got any twos?" You ask, trying to break the ice."This is an examination. You should be focussing on your hand." He replies coldly.Yeesh, some people."Sorry, I didn't know your sense of humour was as extinct as that dinosaur you have."He rolls his eyes in response..What a fun guy."For my Main Phase I summon Great Angus in attack position and equip him with the spell card "Lucky Iron Axe".>Great Angus ATK +500. Now 2300."There doesn't seem to be much meat on your monster. Ah well, appetizers I guess. I attack your one monster with my Great Angus."Your beast leaps forwards, clamping down of the dinosaur's long neck with its jagged teeth.>Opponent loses 800 life points. Enemy currently on 6600 Life Points."Did you forget about my monster's ability?" Your opponent asks you. He continues without waiting a response. "When Hyper Hammerhead battles a monster which isn't destroyed, that same monster is returned to your hand.""I-""But." He continues, talking over you in a monotone drone as though he's teaching a class on art. "Due to the effect of Degenerate Circuit, your monster is removed from play instead!"You sigh."Then I end my turn" you respond.He nods.>Opponent Draw Phase. Opponent draws a card.>Standby Phase - Loses 500 Life Points due to Degenerate Circuit. Opponent Life Points: 6100."Looks like your circuit's defective. It's gonna be the death of you."He ignores you."I summon Hyper Hammerhead in attack position and attack you directly."Again? You jope this kid is a one trick pony, that'd be easy pickings.For now though, what are you going to do about this attack?>Counter with Negate Attack.>Let it go through.Also>Do you say anything to the boy? (Write in).
>>3145125>Let it go through.Its annoying but we can allow it.
>>3145125>jopeWhat the hell is a jope and why is it in my phone dictionary.
>>3145125>Let it go through.
>>3145125This guy has no sense of humor. Plus our deck SUCKS. Like SERIOUSLY, I'm looking through this selection, we have no consistency, barely any backrow removal or monster destruction outside of Magic and Trap cards, barely ANY effect monsters worth a damn... I wouldn't be surprised if we end up in Slifer Red cause of our shit deck.OP I call upon the right of Minor Charatcer that you allow us the barebones of a better deck. I say Minor cause we're sure as shit nit the Main Character. I'd take fucking Genex at this point, literally anything is better than this deck and I don't want to end up in the same dorm as fucking Syrus just cause. I beg of you OP, DON'T MAKE US DEAL WITH SYRUS!!>Let it go through
>Let it go through.It's best to hold onto your trap cards for now until you really need it.The holographic creature rushes up to you and swings its blunt head into your side. The attack phases through you of couse, it's only a hologram. Though you still flinch.Your Duel Disk bleeps, alerting you that you lost Life Points."And with that, I end my turn." The boy states.Alright, let's knock this kid down a peg or two.>Draw Phase. Drew Broken Bamboo Sword.Ugh, a stack card. Not really what you need right now.--[Life Points: 8000][Opponent Life Points: 7400][Opponent's Side]>Monster - Hyper Hammerhead>Spell - Degenerate Circuit>Hand - 4 cards.[Your Side]Traps>Negate Attack - Face Down>Chain Detonation - Face DownHand>Goblin Elite Attack Force.>Harpie Girl.>Broken Bamboo Sword.
>>3145147Guess who's going to be your bunkbuddy if you keep complaining.No in all serious do you think this deck is too weak? I was thinking of throwing a few boosters your way after this if you guys need help.Also of note, since you only scored around 50 on your written exam the only way you won't be in Red is if you amaze everyone in this fight.. or not go to a school where they teach you to play a child's card game instead of algebra and politics.
>>3145156Wasn't his lps 6600 before? Ours 6500?Goblin Elite Attack Force, face down.
>>3145156Well ideally I'd want to destroy that fucking circuit but we don't have any backrow removal aside from Twister amd Dust Tornado, neither of which I have a feeling we're going to draw any time soon, so not much else to do but>S Goblin Elite Attack Force face down>End turn>>3145172Yeah man, this deck is like, the top deckiest deck ever. Don't get me wrong, there's a few ways to get out of this situation, but only if we draw a certain card. Decks now adays cover all bases cause other decks do the same. Oh you have backrow removal? I have a hand trap to negate it. You have monster destruction? I can discard a card with Meta-ocalypse to negate your effect. I guess I only bitch cause I'm used to the current meta, but it feels like you're setting us up to fail with very little chance to redeem our self outside of sheer luck later on.
>>3145156Sorry wait. Fixing this.[Opponent Life Points: 6100]>But it feels like you're setting us up to fail with very little chance to redeem our self outside of sheer luck later on.I was going for an anime deck over a realistic'n'efficient deck but sure. I'll definitely add a booster pack system as soon as I can figure one out.
>>3145156>Harpie Girl. face down defense positionend our turn
>>3145198Oh well shit in which case we really need a gimmic. Every character that was aroumd for more than an episode had a thing. Crystal beasts, Vehicroids, hell even that one dude with the croc on his back had like Dinos, and that other guy with a shotgun for a duel disc had a burn deck with a Volcano theme.You know what I suggest? Gladiator Beasts. It's a GX-ish era deck, has a totally anime feel, has contact fusion involved... all around fun to use!
>>3145190Our LP is 6500, yeah sorry I missed that note.--Without much else to do you set the Goblin Elite Attack Force in face-down defence position and end your turn. >Opponent draws. Opponent loses 500 Life Points due to Degenerate Circuit."First off I summon 'Red Archery Girl' in attack position, then I attack your face-down card with Hyper Hammerhead.">Counter with Negate Attack>Take the hit.
>>3145219>Counter with Negate Attack
>>3145219>Counter with negate attackNot this time sucka.
Oh, Gem Knights is another GX type deck. Heavy enphasis on Fusion, very Anime-esque! Really any archetype focussing on fusion, like Shaddolls or Predaplants or hell even Amazon. Those are all kinda Anime-esque, if a tad OP for GX.
"Not this time sukka!" You cry out. "I activate my trap card, negate attack!Your face-down card flips up, hovering in front of your opponent."I'm sure you know the effects of this card, I won't ramble."He bites his lower lip. "Then I end my turn.""Neato, thanks for that buster."You draw a card. It's Decoy Dragon... great.--[Life Points: 6500][Opponent Life Points: 5600][Opponent's Side]Monsters->Hyper Hammerhead - ATK>Red Archery Girl - ATK>Spell - Degenerate Circuit>Hand - 4 cards.[Your Side]Monster - Goblin Elite Attack Force - Face-Down defence.Traps - Chain Detonation - Face DownHand>Harpie Girl.>Broken Bamboo Sword.>Decoy Dragon

>>3145251Our hand is pretty bad, so this seems like a good choice don't forget to believe in the heart of the cards for good draws
>>3145330Our cards must have heart palpitations.
>switch goblin elite attack force to attack position and attack red archery girl, then place harpie girl in face down defense position and end our turn."I flip my face-down card into attack position and set a monster in face-down defence." You reach out and set your Harpie Girl onto the field."I then attack your Red Archery Girl.">Red Archery Girl destroyed. Opponent sustains 800 damage. Opponent Life Points: 4800."After the Battle Phase my Goblin Elite Attack Force is switched into defence position.""I.. End my turn."The son of a bitch smiles.>Opponent draws. Opponent loses 500 Life Points due to Degenerate Circuit. Opponent's Life Points: 4300."I change the field with 'A Legendary Ocean'." He sets a field card down and the hologram projects submerged ruins around you."I then activate 'Spiritualism' which allows me to return your face-down card in your spell & trap zone back into your hand."Well.. shit.>Activate Chain Detonation, or>Let the card return to your hand.
>>3145390>Activate Chain DetonationGood a time as any I suppose
>>3145390>Activate Chain Detonation
>>3145390>Let the card return to your hand.It's worth noting that degenerate circuit only affects monsters, so we don't lose the card or anything. So we could keep it to try and bluff, but if it was actually that good we probably would have used it by now. I guess we might as well keep it to see if he wants to waste removal on it.
>>3145426Huh that's a good point.>Let the card return to your hand.
>>3145390>Let the card return to your hand.Assuming we don't have to reveal the card as it gets returned, we can keep up the pretense that it's actually a trap card worth playing when we set it again next turn.
>>3145426Ah you know what that is true...Fuck it, backing this. I'm just mad we don't have a better deck. Imagine a Gem Knights deck in GX, it'd fit right in!
>>3145433OP probably needs an avenue to progress the MC's dueling ability. There isn't really a way to do that apart from improving his deck. Well, that and believing increasingly hard in the heart of the cards.
>>3145433If you get into Ra with this shit I'd be impressed anon.--There isn't really a point in using your trap just yet. You shrug, let it slide and Chain Detonation returns to your hand."First I set a monster on the field.. Then attack your Goblin Elite Attack Force."Figures. He's predictable but you can't counter him. Your luck's been falling short these past few turns.Your monster is removed from play soon after. The boy then ends his turn.>Drew Back to Square One.--[Life Points: 6500][Opponent Life Points: 4300][Opponent's Side]Monsters->Hyper Hammerhead - ATK>Unknown - face-down DEF>Spell - Degenerate CircuitField - A Legendary Ocean.>Hand - 2 cards.[Your Side]Monster - Harpe Girl - Face-Down defence.Hand>Broken Bamboo Sword.>Decoy Dragon.>Chain Detonation.>Back to Square One.
>>3145440>Believe in the heart of the cards.Well the duel is really just a few notes I write in my textbook so it's always possible for me to decide on your next card instead of dice.Do you have any suggestions for a method? I can't think of a way to improve the MC's dueling ability considering their skill is your collective skill.
>>3145466Just set Chain Detonation and end your turn, believe in Harpie Girl to protect you against the Two Tribute anti-facedown card that's coming up.Cause that's clearly what's gonna happen.Not to mention you're still on 6500 life points, your opponent dealing that much damage in a single turn is unlikely, especially given his deck construction favors slow play.
>>3145473I was just complaining since we drew a couple bad cards in a row. Random draws are probably the way to go unless you really just want us to draw a particular card.
>>3145473Bruh it's 4chan, I gurantee you half the board has either dabbled or played competitively. Our collective skill is fine, it's the deck that's crap. Give us an archetype or an element based deck and you'll fucking see how quickly we wipe the floor with this bitch.Not to mention we barely had any char gen to begin with. Do we even have a name? We're 15 and that's like, all I know.
>>3145479Support.We're really just stalling till we draw something that can remove one of his combo pieces, aren't we?>>3145473Well, like I said, I expected our progression to be in terms of improving our deck. Hence, the shitty starting deck, to give the most room for improvement and hence progression.I dunno, if you wanted to give us actual mechanical abilities to use in duels, you could always give us limited uses of the whole influencing-the-next-draw-thing protagonists seem to keep getting, at significant points in the plot. Like once per duel, choose your next draw (but only at a dramatically appropriate point in the game), increasing to twice when we first lose to our nemesis and so on.
>>3145479Put down decoy dragon? Can we use its ability to summon anything in our deck?
>>3145504We do have the combo removal in Back to Square One, but it's so damn powerful that we need to keep it.Especially to discard our level 7 or higher Dragon. Hopefully QM doesn't fuck up and actually picks one that can be special summoned.
>>3145500I think OP is trying to let us make the character by our actions? But for real, I think the bad deck is fine to start as long as we don't get fucked over too bad story-wise for bad luck
>>3145509DO NOT.Our Graveyard is currently empty and if our opponent decides to attack Decoy Dragon at all then we lost a pretty big combo piece that could've turned the duel around.It's hella vulnerable. Keep the little tyke there until it's sort of safe to play.
>>3145509It only targets stuff in the graveyard (where no monsters will go until we get rid of degenerate circuit)
>>3145509Nah son, Decoy Dragon is for the Graveyard not from the deck.
>>3145509The targets needs to be in our graveyard first. Back to Square One lets us set that up by discarding it, but then we need to actually draw it first.Even then, it's not like just summoning one beatstick will instantly win us the duel. And the only valid target I saw when skimming the decklist was Tri-Horned Dragon.
Yo who here thinks a Dragon deck would be boss? We could mill a bunch of lvl7+ Dragons, run 3 Decoys and just fucking decimate the compition.
>>3145504>deck improvement as progressionMore card game anime need to do this. Quests to find and earn stronger cards are where it’s at.>mechanical abilitiesChoosing a specific card is probably a bit much, but narrowing things down a bit might work. Like, maybe as we attune to a specific dueling philosophy and/or archetype certain circumstances let us trigger an ability that make our next draw fall within a certain category (a certain attribute, level, creature type, name, etc.)
>>3145525I knew it targets the graveyard. Wondering if we have a dragon in our deck it can combo with. Stall long enough the opposition will implode.
>>3145525there's the mecha who's p useful. Summon a 2400 beatstick without trobute then straight to the Gy. Pretty good all things considered, we just need to get rid of that fucking degenerate circuit, which is impossible without Twister or Dust Tornado. I agree woth the other Anons, destiny draws look to be the best addition.
>>3145525It sounds like it's time for a DESTINY DRAW next turn.>>3145530Decoy Dragon is weak, sorry to say. If you blow it up by card effects then the whole "Summon a dragon from a grave" backfires hard.If we want to make a deck focused on summoning big beaters, then we're gonna need more versatile methods.
>>3145530MC is poor though. Given how the entire universe seems to revolve around Duel Monsters, level 7 dragons are likely to be expensive. We could build towards it, but we're going to need to explore more budget options first.>>3145534>narrowing things down a bit might workThat's probably a better idea. There does need to be progression on that end as well, between 'one in three chance to draw the exact card I need' and 'draw Obelisk from the fucking floor', and narrowing down cards would give OP some room with that.
By the way, funny thing about Degenerate Circuit.It's not optional and doesn't have a "Destroy if you can't pay" clause. In which case the opponent can easily just die horribly to their own card if we're cruel enough....Oh. We're definitely cruel enough.
>>3145534Card game anime DO do that, the progression just comes as a result of the deck rather than any character development.COUGH XEZAL COUGH UTOPIA COUGH
>>3145552Actually nevermind I just re-read upon the actual rulings and it's just auto-destroyed instead.Why this was never put on the card itself will forever be a mystery to me.
3145500Dude I wasn't insulting ya, I'm saying I can't think of a way to improve the MC's skills except for the introduction of new cards.It seems that DESTINY DRAW is a popular idea. I can definitely implement it.>>3145500>>3145514>Little character gen & Character Creation through actions.I've been taking notes on your choices and actions and I'll be writing your personality around those traits. Though to be fair I did rush into a duel because I wanted to see how fluid the system was and if it worked at all.>>3145504Yep, that's why our deck is so shit. Progression.--Without many options you reset Chain Detonation in the trap zone and end your turn. You don't want to risk losing Decoy Dragon just yet.Dammit. It's more of a waiting game than anything else at this point.>Opponent's turn. Opponent loses 500 Life Points. Currently on 3800."First I flip my face-down card. Hane-Hane will rise up and with his ability (and with Degenerate Circuit) I remove your monster from play."Jesus wept you need to get your luck back soon or else you're going to cream this.>Counter with Chain Detonation.>Don't fight it.
>>3145580>Don't fight it.Chain Detonation is both a good bluff and if the opponent actually lets Hane-Hane stay on the field like that we can pretty much drop a big shock to their lifepoints.Of course we're planning to Spin their Big Bad Monster that they're obviously gonna sacrifice Hane-Hane for with Back to Square one, but can't hurt to have a backup plan.
>>3145580>see how fluid the system is.Well not to sound like an asshole, but... it could use some smoothing out.>that's why your dexk is so shit. Progression.>Pic related >Don't fight it>Pray to the GODS you get fucking twister your next draw
>>3145580>Don't fight it.Chain Detonation will win us the game, just you wait. He'll get stalled down to 500 LP on what would be his winning turn, only to die to burn. Just kidding, we'll probably lose before that.
>>3145594>doubt.jpgDefinitely not because I like to see people suffer. It's totally for progression guys.
>>3145594>Wanting Twister when it's slowly counting down to your opponent's death by Chain DetonationNah. Tri-Horned Dragon is the proper Destiny Draw here.
>>3145594>Well not to sound like an asshole, but... it could use some smoothing out.Hey. No problem anon. I'd love some pointers or ideas if anyone has any.
>>3145580>Don't fight it.
You don't fight it. Instead you let your smoking hot monster be removed before you could ever use her.Oh you'll make this kid pay."I then attack you directly with both of my monsters."There's no point in using Chain Detonation now so again you let the attacks go through.>Direct attack, damage dealt: 1950. Current Life Points: 4550."I then set a card face-down and end my turn."This kid rolled his eyes at some of your best jokes. He's slowly been etching away at your life points so that this is more of a chore than an actual game. He's treated you like an uneducated child and mocked you. If only he didn't have that flat-faced dinosaur or that stupid spell you'd be half-way home already.He's going down.>Destiny Draw Activated (Level: Excruciating Low).>Draw Phase. You drew a Trap Hole.---[Life Points: 4550][Opponent Life Points: 3800][Opponent's Side]Monsters>Hyper Hammerhead - ATK>Hane-Hane - ATK>Unknown - face-down DEF>Spell - Degenerate CircuitField - A Legendary Ocean.>Hand - 2 cards.[Your Side]Trap - Chain Detonation.Hand>Broken Bamboo Sword.>Decoy Dragon.>Back to Square One.>Trap hole.--So yeah, this is a DESTINY DRAW I guess. Someone suggested that these also needed to progress, as such they have levels. Right now, this destiny draw was very low. This means that instead of being presented with a solution in your face, the solution has to be realised. Also the scale of the draw is deoendent of this level. This destiny draw only serves to help get rid of the Hyper Hammerhead.
>>3145639Nigga I'll fucking give you a solution.Set Trap HoleActivate Back to Square One, target that faggot hammer head then fucking chain both trap hole and chain detonation for payback since Hane Hane's going to fuck us up anyways.End our fucking turn cause OUR DECK IS TRASH
>>3145639>Trap Hole getting rid of a Hyper Hammerhead that is already summonedThat's not how it works. But I appreciate the thought.Set the new trap and pass one more turn.>>3145661Don't activate Back to Square One just yet.Remember, the only life point that matters is your last one.
>>3145661Also it must be noted I am >>3145555 my phone keeps changing my IP but I'm still the same bitter asshole. ALSO CLARIFICATION don't use Trap Hole unless he plays Hammer Head next turn I figure that should be obvious
>>3145667Bruh that's why I said activate Square One so that the only card he can draw next turn is Hammerhead. If he had any other monster worth summoning he would have done so by now, why give him that chance?
>>3145674If they don't summon something then we can draw one more combo piece.If they do draw something big then we can actually use our current destiny draw for a even bigger impact.Make combustible lemons if life gives you lemons, lemonade doesn't destroy your foes.
>>3145685As a additional point, even if we do kill the Hammerhead straight away, all we're doing is getting a extra turn that might brick because we lost the potential for Square One to be a combo piece* Cough * Tri-Headed Dragon * Cough *
>>3145694>>3145685You know what? Fine. I'll support this, only so we can lose faster, be DENIED entry and OP will have no choice but to revamp this into an ARC-V Quest! Backing this! >>3145667
>>3145708This is a unusual amount of salt. If you're so mad about how this is being handled maybe you should make your own YGO Quest.Just gonna namefag for one shitpost and say "My Dueling Always Wins"
>>3145708By Arc-V quest you mean... in regards to the cards or that you're not trapped on an island?
>>3145720In regards to the cards most likely, but if I wanted to make a AU ARC-V That wasn't a complete shitshow I would probably be starting from the Episode 1 Scenario.
>>3145639play >Back to Square One. by discarding >Broken Bamboo Sword. targeting hammerhead then play >Decoy Dragon. in face down defense and set trap hole to end our turn
>>3145716It ain't salt, it's iodine. It's diluted slightly.>>3145720Oh, both. Not only are the cards still being used in the meta today but the fucking world building is just screaming to be used. Monsters brought to life via hard light matter to such a point that they can interact with the real world? Imagine the impacts that would have on society. Ehy bother having a standing army when you have a few pros who can wield fucking Magic A-Bombs? Why bother wasting money and damaging the earth with fossil fuels when you can ridw a fucking tiger to work? Would everyone have a deck? SHOULD everyone have a deck? It's like your premise which got me hooked but dialed up to 11>>3145727Yeah see he gets it. Just imagine being a kid, seeing real life Kaijus in action in the ring, or developing trauma from a monster injuring you. So many narrative possibilities I can't explore cause I'm shite at coming up with moves DURING the duel.
Alright. Enough of this shit. You win, you win. You lose, you lose."I set a card face down and activate 'Back to Square One'. By discarding my 'Broken Bamboo Sword' I can return one monster to the top of your deck. Do not pass go. Do not collect 200.""Degenerate Circuit doesn't banish cards that return to the deck, only the hand.""I remmeber. I then chain with 'Chain Detonation'. You lose 500 Life Points.">Opponents Life Points: 3300."The beauty of this card." You continue, "Is that I can return it to my deck if it's a part of a chain."You return the card and shuffle your deck."Your move Buster. I end my turn.">Opponent draws. Loses 500. Opponent At: 2800 Life Points."Well that was fairly useless. I resummon my Hyper Hammerhead.""Well I counter with 'Trap Hole'!" You cry out. "That's right, I'm sending it back to the Mesozoic period.""Well you're still wide open for an attack from my Hane-Hane.">You take 450 damage.

>>3145639Yeah, just set Trap Hole and end turn. There's no point doing much else right now.
>>3145756summon >Gyroid attack hane hane end turn
>>3145756Well shit, now we have no options except using Gyroid to attack and then stall harder, especially now that we can't discard Tri-Headed Dragon if we happen to draw them.Y'all are silly, I'mma go sleep since it's ridiculously late.
>>3145768Pussy. It's 3am for me.
>>3145756Huh.Yeah you know what, we CAN make this work! Summon Gyroid and attack Hane Hane. His face down most likely also returns things to the hand. >>3145768Man we WOULD HAVE if we could. But destiny draws are a bitch.
>>31457753:25 in the AM REAL DUELIST HOURS
>>3145776>Man we WOULD HAVE if we could. But destiny draws are a bitch.Blah blah blame the QM. Bitch ya would have won if you saved your Chain Detonation. I'm running through the numbers and it ain't pretty.
>>3145796>Running through the numbers.Sorry for the spoilers?
>>3145796Man did I SAY I blame you? Yeah the deck is of your design but you don't decide which card to draw the dice do.Unless that's how you did the destiny draw in which case yeah, it IS you.Besides, chain detonation barely makes a difference. We would have had to wait something like 4 more turns for it to actually make a difference, and by then he would have won.
I'm going to bed I appreciate you running and trying something different from bo3, OP. I hope it works out.
>>3145845Thanks anon, I appreciate the support. I'm guessing most people have logged off so I might head off to bed soon myself.
Man, I'm sorry I'm being such a cock. It's the new year and I should be nicer. I like yu-gi-oh and quests and I'm sorry if I discourage you cause that's the last thing I want to do is discourage a fellow QM.It's 4am and I hope you accept my apology. I'll be back tomorrow tho, and act like less of a cock. Hope to see you still here man. I'm sorry.
>>3145860Hey dude no worries. I was fine with your dicking, you haven't discouraged me at all.Have a great new year in any case everyone. Have a cat for your troubles.
I don't know how to play, but I'm liking it so far. I will put my faith in other Anons.
>>3146169Thanks for the interest anon. We'll be wrapping up this duel soon enough and move onto chatting and character building.Just need to wait for more people to vote, else I'll just go with anon's vote.
>>3145796Guess the QM figured out why I was telling people to stall harder, yeah Chain Detonation was pretty much the way to win since it was the final bit of burn once Degen Circuit burnt through the opponent's lifepoints.It's also basic logic that using Three cards just to take out one monster is extremely suboptimal.Salty logic aside, you can always drop some plot armor on us. But it might be more interesting if we're NOT admitted into a duel academy simply because of our hotheadedness.
>>3146659>But it might be more interesting if we're NOT admitted into a duel academy simply because of our hotheadedness.I've been tinkering with this idea and I do like it. A Duel Monsters Community College has been mentioned before in the anime, else we could go to a normal school. Plus it opens the world up a ton.Sorry for not updating sooner. The trip back took more out of me than I was expecting.Posting update in a sec.
>>3145776"I summon Gyroid in attack position, and set him loose upon your Hane-Hane!">Damage dealt to Opponent: 500. Opponent Life Points: 2250."I then end my turn.">Opponent draws. Opponent loses 500 Life Points. Opponent currently on 1750."I flip my face-down card into attack position." The monster card turns over, revealing a 'Penguin Soldier'. "When this monster is flipped I can remove your Gyroid from the field.""I then end my turn.">You draw. You drew 'Enemy Controller'.--[Life Points: 4100][Opponent Life Points: 1750][Opponent's Side]>Spell - Degenerate CircuitField - A Legendary Ocean.>Hand - 3 cards.[Your Side]NOTHINGHand>Decoy Dragon.>Enemy Controller.
>>3146841Pass the turn and pray.Enemy Controller is a RIDICULOUSLY powerful card in a situation like this, but if we want to make the whole turn around thing we need to keep the material for it in hand.It's interesting though, they didn't attack directly despite the field being empty. Are they planning something?Levia-Dragon wouldn't exactly make sense at this point.
>>3146942Huh.I'm surprised they didn't keep Penguin Soldier on the field and still attacked with Hane-Hane though. It's a much higher attack stat and degen circuit does banish ANY monster sent back to the hand, not just the opponent's.Do they then expect a monster controlling effect for some reason? It's not that common.
"I skip my turn." You say. "You're not going to do anything?" The boy asks."That's why I skipped my turn.""Fine then, I don't blame you for letting it end early." He shrugs and draws a card.>Opponent drew a card. Opponent loses 500 Life Points. Opponent's Life Points: 1250."I summon 'Penguin Knight' and attack you directly!>Counter with 'Enemy Controller' from your hand.>Do nothing.
>>3146947>Do nothingThey had a spare Penguin then?That's also not how Quick-Plays work. You can only use them from the hand during your turn, or during your opponent's turn if it was set.QM, do you need some extra sleep?
>>3146945Hane-Hane was destroyed by our Gyroid, the Penguin didn't have a great enough ATK level to defeat it in battle so it banisned your Gyroid with its flip effect instead.
>>3146950I forgot about that point. Fucking hell keeping track of this mess is getting a bit harsh. Maybe we need to update the post formatting a bit.
>>3146949>Do you need sleep.Anon you have no idea. I've been confused over the past four posts. Yesterday I mistook an orange snooker ball for the white ball for a good few minutes.-->The Penguin Knight deals 1100 damage to your. Current Life Points: 3000.The boy ends his turn.>Draw Phase.

>>3146956>Update post format.I'm looking into a way I can merge pictures together on mobile so I can post the field and out hand in the image box.
>>3146960Alright then, here's the gameplan that I have.>Set Dust Tornado and pass, the moment you can activate it DO NOT destroy Degenerate Circuit and instead go for A Legendary Ocean.>Set Enemy Controller, it's unlikely the opponent can deal 3000 points of damage once their field spell is gone but it's still possible they have a method of doing so. We're at the threshold that one should wear at least a little bit of protection. But it can be debated pretty darn heavily, even thought of skipping Dust Tornado's optional effect.
"I set two cards face down and end my turn."The boy silently draws a card.>Opponent loses 500 Life Points. Opponent's Life Points: 750."I then summon 'Jellyfish' and attack you directly with my 'Penguin Knight'."I counter with 'Dust Tornado'. And I destroy your Legendary Ocean.">Activate Enemy Controller.>Bear the blow. You can still win this.
>>3147059>Bear the blow. You can still win this.This isn't a killing blow, so activating Enemy Controller here would be unwise.
You let the attacks go through. You may need your trump card for later.>Your Life Points: 900."I then end my turn.">You draw Swift Birdman Joe....That's it. You've lost. There's nothing else you can do.

>>3147103You haven't lost you damn fool.>Set Decoy Dragon and pass turn
>>3147107Fighting until the very end. I like it.
>>3147113It's highly possible to survive one more turn, we still have enemy controller set and can set a monster.If the opponent summons another monster we can still tribute decoy dragon with enemy controller. Taking their strongest and delaying our opponent's victory for one more turn.With this Degenerate Circuit will proc one more time and we'll only have to deal 400 points of damage to clutch jaws of defeat.tl;dr: My dueling always wins posting.
>>3147115True, I'm wondering if you all want some plot armour or if the next few draws should be random. I'm starting to like the idea of failing because we were hot headed and so we go to a normal school.
>>3147142Well, if we believe hard enough in the Heart of the Cards, can we get a "Destiny Draw"?
>>3147142Maybe this instructor is just so jaded that they can fail anyone who makes a obvious misplay. Our win is coming down to luck anyway.Buuuuuuut that's pretty much railroading, just let the cards decide the setting at this point.Also wait for more votes sometimes. I don't want to be the only guy deciding the turns.
>>3147103>Set Decoy Dragon and pass turnThere is no point to admitting defeat, let's just try our damnest 'till the bitter end.
>Fight to the bitter end.No. You still have a god damn chance. Having doubts is sickening. You can stall this son of a gun for another turn at least. The game will likely be settled by your final draw."I set a monster face down and end my turn." You say, placing down Decoy Dragon.>Opponent Draws. Opponent loses 500 Life Point. Opponent's Life Points: 250."Then I guess this is the end. Even with a monster in defence position my Penguin Knight has just enough ATK power to end this." Your opponent boasts. "I attack with my Jellyfish.""I'd hold off on that victory speech, I'm still in this fight. I activate my spell card 'Enemy Controller'. By sacrificing my monster I take control of your Jellyfish for the duration of your turn.""Fine, you survive for another turn. That won't change anything in the end. It's your turn."Right.. Everything, I mean everything rides on this next card. You barely passed the written exam with a single percentage over the minimum. The only chance you could get into the Duel Academy is through this duel, accumulating points from either winning or playing well.."Unlucky for you I trust my cards, I built this deck myself. If I say I'm gonna win with it then I'm serious."He rolls his eyes. "You can't be certain of that. With what I've seen your deck is subpar in every conceivable way.""Hey, you've been struggling to defeat me.""Don't be so arrogant. I lost most of my Life Points from my own card, not from the likes of you.""Well I hope you're prepared to lose the remainder of your Life Points to the 'likes of me'. DRAW!."You pull the top card from your deck. It slides seamlessly out of the mechanism holding it in place as you draw it sharply. With a flick of your wrist the card flies into your hand pile.This is it.The moments of truth.You look down at the card you drew, hoping your luck hadn't run out.>Drew Card - Birthright.-->"Shit.">"Best of three?">Continue with the Duel regardless of the inevitable(Set 'Birthright', end your turn, ir both)>Surrender.
>>3147223People stated that they wish to fight to the bitter end so I'm assume your set that card and end your turn. Although you can say something to your opponent.
>>3147226>Meant to say "I assume you'll"
>>3147223>"Best of three?"Let's earn an academy award for our acting and play that one as much as possible, trying to make him feel as big as possible.He's obviously going to refuse and sass us.Then>Continue with the Duel regardless of the inevitable(Set 'Birthright', end your turn, ir both)and engage maximum cheekiness as he loses during his stand-by phase because Degenerate Circuit's effect isn't a cost to pay but damages received, robbing him of his life-points and giving us victory.Omae wa mou shindeiru.
>>3147245Sorry mate, Degenerate Circuit ends if the user doesn't have more than 501 life points.
>>3147223>Continue with the Duel regardless of the inevitable(Set 'Birthright', end your turn, ir both)Bluff. Bluff till the end.
>>3147223>Set Birthright and grin.>SUPER BLUFF
>>3147223>"Best of three?"This idiot forgot about his own damn card. I'm cracking up.
>>3147226Obviously.>"Looks like I WIN!"Set Birthright and end our turnThe cockiest mother fucker for like, no reason at all. Cause mind you he can always just get rid of the circuit and destroy us. It's literally our BIRTHRIGHT to enter Duel Academy. We were created for the soul reason of dueling.
>>3147248Damn it, thought that would kill him. Okay I'll switch from this>>3147257 to bluffing>Bluff like your life depends on it.
>>3147248Is that so? I got shafted because I paid more life points than I had left using the Vampire Fraulein's effect once which cost me the duel immediately. I gotta say I don't remember getting in that situation often but I don't think that in official games, cards are just "destroyed" once you can't pay their maintenance cost, IIRC, that's more a gimmick sites like duelling network or duelling nexus are forced to use to avoid fuckery.
>>3147275Really?Okay boys and anons. Hearing this I'll offer you all two choices.>Bluff him and hope to fuck the next card is good, or.>Allow Degenerate Circuit to kill him.
>>3147284Out of curiosity are we dueling another kid or a proctor? Cause you say "boy" and stuff but he keeps referring to this as an examination. Is it just two people dueling each other while someone watches? Cause if so I vote we let him burn himself but explain in the most manic fashion possible that not only were we not even trying but that we knew at the very start of the duel that he'd lose, all we needed to do was stall. Like an ultimate "all according to Keikaku" moment. Manic laugh and all.
>>3147289We're dueling a current 1st year Ra yellow who's using an examination deck (I.e. a shit tier deck). Adult Examiners are watching the duel from the sidelines.
>>3147284>Bluff him and hope to fuck the next card is goodI assume you built his deck under the specific assumption that Degenerate Circuit won't actually burn him to death. Doesn't feel like a proper win to me to retroactively change its effect to invalidate that. We can stall for at least one more turn with Birthright, right?
>>3147296Oh so the deck was PROVIDED for him? Like he didn't build it himself? Cause if that is the case I still maintain my vote. Just be all like "Bruh your deck is made to fail, so why bother dueling seriously?"
>>3147297>Will the stall work.Fuck it, yeah it'll work for one more turn. You'd better hope your next card's a good one.
>>3147284I don't wanna bullshit you QM, I honestly am not sure on what would happen in that situation.I'm still salty about it so I do am sure that you will actually lose the duel if you pay more lp than you have but since in my case, I did that to activate an effect of the card rather than as a "requirement" of the card (not sure if it's the correct term, English isn't my first language, sorry) maybe you're right and the card is destroyed instead if its cost can't be met.Since it says that the cost is mandatory, however, I'd be inclined to think that it would be akin to direct damage and you would thus lose the game.Anyway, it's up to you to decide in the end since it's your quest and we're playing by GX rules anyway so, hé!
>>3147302Yeah it's not his personal deck. It's so shit that newbies have a chance considering cards are so expensive in this universe.
>>3147284>Allow Degenerate Circuit to kill him.
>>3147315Hey no worries anon. Your English is at a decent level in any case.>>3147315>>3147297I'm prioritising your fun over my own so that's why I'm asking what you all want to do in this situation.
Alright, it seems to be a stalemate again. I guess we'll go with "draw another card" instead of using plot armour.

>>3147569Aw, okay OP. Hope to see you soon! Btw, what're the chances we end up graduating and working for Kaibacorp so as to ensure the Zexal timeline? Cause I don't wanna end up in a potential future where Meklords and Genex are a thing...
>>3147534>Check out the Card Shops. Sure they're gonna be pricey but you brought $55 for more cards.Your deck won the day but in the end it still needs some tuneups for the real thing.>Keep SOME of the money for the Cosplay Cafe though, who would want to miss out on that?
>>3147693>Maybe an archetype structure deck or something.>Keep in mind in this world a five card booster pack can cost as much as 50 a pop.Probably not gonna happen unless we either luck out or actively quest for an opportunity. We could maybe build one over time though, if everyone can agree on a specific deck list. I wonder if deck recipes are a thing?
>>3147693Tbh, Gladiator Beasts have only become actually competitive recently with their "Beast Tamer" fusion monster (tho even that isn't true anymore since the new rules they introduced for links makes spamming fusion monsters impossible) , before they were rather meh.
>>3147724YES. XYZ were already shit but links are just the straw that broke the camel's back. They should have stopped either before synchro or immediately after.
>>3147534>Check out the Card Shops. Sure they're gonna be pricey but you brought $55 for more cards.Probably we should ask if they looking for workers part-time
>>3148433Yeah but think about it, they're totally apropriate for this era. What with their contact fusion and tag outs. Nab ourselves a Secutor, Bestiari, Murmillo and Gyzarius and we'd be golden! Plus they're anime as shit. I can see it now, one of the GBs as our Duel Spirit, telling us to unleash our inner Gladiator, then BOOM, we contact fusion something like Nerokius, who's basically just Acient Gear Golem Lite.
>>3148637Tbh, you're right. Looking for competitiveness is rather stupid, fun and cool factor is what we should be truly after for maximum Shonen-ness.Gladiator Beasts are one of my favorite archetype too so it's not like I'd complain. ;D
>>3148433>>3148637>>3148655Please don't try to force a Archetype down our throats. What we get is what we get.
>>3148569>>3147550>>3147558>>3147575>>3147693>>3147777I'm up boys, it's time to continue along the story.>>3147693>How did the MCs in the show get their decks anyways?Erm, magic? They would have collected cards from booster packs like any commoner anon.>>3147724That sounds like something way off into the future. I mean you can strive for a job there but you first need an education. Also I hear Kaiba isn't the best employer.>pic related>Gladiator Beasts.Honestly I love this archetype and I do hope you all design Shoneny decks over Sure-Win decks, again though it's all down to you all.Also >>3148664 is right. The Quest has only just started, there's no need to think about Archetypes just yet.
>>3148671At least you would never get bored.
>>3148677>Invents card for a game he doesn't own.>Send said card off into space.>Thinks that the best message to alien life would be a children's card.
>>3148682 Pegasus' whole goal behind duellist Island was to impress the shareholders of Kaibacorp to conclude the merging of their two companies so it's likely that, after he got killed by Bakura, Kaiba just went on with that deal but to his advantage meaning that he would thus own the rights to Duel Monster.
>>3148691Yeah I think legally KaibaCorp now owns the rights. Ehich is bullshit cause tjat means Kaiba now has all the best cards for himself but still only uses fucking Blue Eyes. Plus doesn't he end up building a fucking private satelite? He just keeps coming up with all these wacky ideas and STILL end sup making a profit, it's freaky.
I swear to god if this bug doesn't clear up by tomorrow I'm gonna cut out my gut. It'd be less painful-->Time to shop. A'int no time like the present.The examinations weren't the only reason you came to the city. Domino City's card shops are better stocked than your local one, there's bound to be more than commons.If you're lucky you could find some Super Rares..---[i]2004 - 15th June - 14:50[/i]It wasn't too difficult locating a card shop, just look for the metal detectors and long queues and you'll find your way.Ten years ago you could sell Duel Monsters in regular shops without hassle. Sure you can still legally sell the cards but without proper procedures in place they'd be attracting all kinds of crooks and madmen.At a glance, the card shop is no different from any other high street shop. Then you notice the stanchions, the steel door and that the viewing glass in the shop window is protected by some kind of metallic mesh.Welcome to the card shops, a home away from home for avid Duelists and the one place you can legally purchase cards."Welcome to the 'Collective Cards'. How may I help you today?" asks an Attendant from behind a register, his weary sigh does not go unnoticed."Er, hey. I'm looking for a few cards."He nods at you. "It's not like there's anything else you can do at a card shop. Packs or singles?""What?""Pac- do you want to buy a pack or a specific card?" he looks down at your attire and continues. "We only sell super rares and above in case you weren't aware.""Nothing lower.""Only in packs, sir."--Your cash: $55[b]Booster Packs[/b]>One named Spellcaster's Fury - Trap & Spellcaster Deck ($35)>Darkened Chaos - Spell & Trap Deck ($37)>Undending Eternity - Fairy Deck ($40)[b]Cards you can Purchase[/b]>Acid Trap Hole ($20)>Garuda the Wind Spirit ($21)>Grateful Dice ($20)"All the other cards are out of stock or above your pay grade. What'll you take?"
>>3148724>Darkened ChaosLet's go for the Chuunier sounding one, it's usually the safest bet.
>>3148724>Darkened Chaos - Spell & Trap DeckOur Spells and traps are strong outside of the bricky Bamboo Sword combo, might as well play with our strength here.Alternatively I would suggest buying Garuda, because WIND Attribute is underrated as hell and the effect is surprisingly powerful.
>>3148773Garuda's effect is debatable when it comes to its usefulness given it requires him to survive until the enemy's endphase which, with his low atk and def, can be pretty hard but a monster that can be special summoned that easily could be useful indeed.However we don't have enough money to buy both him and a booster so better prioritise the later and keep some money on hand, who knows, it could be useful.
>>3148778>>3148773>>3148747Sorry anons, I just puked my guts out. I'm not really in the questing mood tonight.
>>3148844RIP QM, drank too much for New Year or did you catch a cold? In both case, just get some sleep, your health comes first.
>>3148724>Only sells Super Rares and Above >Doesn't sell anything lower except in packsThis... is a VERY weird business model. Whatevs,>Darkened Chaos>>3148747 is right, the chunier the better, plus we already got the makings of a trap deck with the likes of Chain Detonation.>>3148844Also shit my dude you too? I got the same problem, I recommend some Solupred. But only like, 20gs, cause I fucked up and took 40 by accident and now I feel like I could run my own presidential campaign.
Also you know what I just thought about? It's circa 2004 right? The internet is really coming into its own and there's probably already a ton of message boards about Duel Monsters. With such a huge base of people playing and trading and buying, we should like, "review" cards and packs and pro duels and stuff! Like a Yugi-Tuber, you know? Except like, we become an online Yugioh!ESPN, maybe eventually go corporate?
>>3148880>not a Yu-Tu-BerIn universe it's probably Kaibacorp which will end up buying the majority of the internet, it's possible that we could do stuff like that, let's start by filming our first pack opening and ranking the cards we get.Remember to rate all Dragons higher by default so Kaiba likes us though.That being said, I'll vote Darkened Chaos.
>>3148889Aw shit you're right I totally missed the opportunity to call it that. Shame on me.What should we call it? KGN (King of Games Network)? Dueltoriels? Duel Monstarz?
>>3148897DMN (Duel Masters Network)
>>3148880>>3148889>>3148897>>3148905Guys. One career path at a time goddamn.We JUST barely got a application through.
>>3148897On second thought I think we should name Dueltoriels and Duel Monstarz like, sections of the show. Like Dueltoriels would cover strats and techniques like a chess channel while Duel Monstarz would review certain cards, or have like a playlist for boosters we call Power Packs?
>>3148914Yeah, but this >>3148880 career path = best career path. Besides, why can't we have more than one, or get started on one early? Have this thing as like a side hustle to attract sponsors so we can buy more cards and support ourself! Rinse, lather, wash, repeat, badabing badaboom!
So what deck were running? Really want see Koa'ki Meiru deck (even if bit striped down to fit power scale) That deck is unforgiving to mistakes.
>>3148982Thus far we seem to be in a chuuni "all according to Keikau" mood, buying a Spell/Trap card deck. Appearantly we can't afford anything else. I suggest we set up a Duel Monsters-Oriented channel so as to get ourselves a successful side hustle.
>>3148993This Duel Monster Channel meme for quick cash simply... doesn't fit. At all.We would need recording equipment, a actual side job. A whole bunch of shit. Even with the argument of this being circa 2004 and you could strike gold it's also a fact that multiple channels simply didn't hit the big leagues at the time.Not to mention this is all based on IRL Meta knowledge that doesn't necessarily fit into the DM World, and is a horrible HORRIBLE idea from a questing standpoint.
>>3148993Oh control is nice since it uses lots of cards that can be used further down the line in new decks I guess's It's just that I love the feeling of one miss play and we fail without a chance of recovery of Koa'ko Meiru. That deck really punishes users mistakes could see a deck\cards sold for cheap just for that.
>>3148998We could borrow recording equipment from the academy! And we could ask around for side jobs for quick cash along with donations from viewers like you! Thank you!Besides, it's a duel monsters related channel in a world that practically revolves around Duel Monsters! The audience is already there and it's HUGE, ranging from kids with disposable income to adults with regular jobs! We just need to formulate a channel for them to congregate around and voila, instant subscribers! We could even cover duels going on at Duel Academy that're normally covered by TV networks that offer pay per view, but WE record it live for half the price! It'd be like Twitch but with Duel Monster tiddies! DUEL MONSTER TIDDIES MAN!
>>3148998I mean, it's not that bad an idea.Getting money will be a super pain in the academy and damn it we need boosters. Also if we take off It's a good way to get invites to tournaments just based on our fame.Not like it would even get in the way that much of the quest either.
>>3148694>private satellite He builds a colossal space elevator and space station combination It probably cost hundreds of billions if not trillions. He did it to solve a puzzle in 0G.

Also the list is short mainly because I wasn't feeling or thinking too well - circa a la puke, but also because I think it'd work. What makes you so unsure anon?>You too? Also get some Solupred.Ey my dude. Hogmanay really fucked us up. It's all good in any case, I swear baths have some supernatural property to cure ailments>>3148880Early 2000s videos? Oh boy, I hope we can animate better than a blue screen with white text floating about.It seems that everyone is voting for Darkened Chaos. Do you want to open it now or save it for a pack opening video?>Remember to rate all Dragons higher by default so Kaiba likes us though.This.>DUEL MONSTER TIDDIES MAN!I wish my waifu wasn't a hologram anons.
>>3149207Save it for the pack opening video obviously.But all in all I find the idea of selling a single card, regardless of rarity, is just odd. There's a ton of rare vanilla monsters, but they're vanilla. Nothing to justify their being rare other than status. Powerful cards I could understand but selling rare singles just seems weird to me. Better to sell them in packs of threes honestly. As for the video itself, we could nab some software and edit our own ESPN-esque intro later... oh, could you hold a vote as to what to name our channel? We haven't really agreed tho I'm sticking by KGN (King of Games Network). I'm open to others I just think that one sounds the most professional. Or maybe PDR (Pro-Dueling Reviews)?
>>3149223Eh, singles aren't that uncommon any cards that are new, useful or iconic will be sold (not so Mutch for 500/500 vanilla with no other support or general usrand stuff tho) so the only thing weird is super rares only because in many cases you need commons and rates to make decks work so having some better ones would make sense.>>3149207Other than that unboxing and review video to serve as a jump off and since we can't aford anything else to unbox.
>>3149223As for chanal name and our nick... Link here and your watching Duel Links! (you can guess 3 times what I'm playing)

"Correct" is all he says. Your happy you could faint. "You have won 1 copy of this new exclusive card modeled after one of the alternative States of God card!"-That's how my mom won a game show.

>>3150829Ye can't afford anything too good with 18$.Besides that meeting someone and possibly a duel with someone sounds good.
>>3150823>Cosplay cafe18 dollars is enough for something, and we might find somebody to help us make our channel.
>>3150863>we might find somebody to help us make our channel."Hey guys, welcome to my unboxing review with Mrs. Domino City 2003.
>>3150863Same with duel arena as 1 pack opening won't mean anything if we have no other content... My idea is we get friend or 2 then a camera followed up by premision to film and publish analysis of their duels and commentary. Getting that as main content requires just camera which we would need either way and an okay to film at local arena as opposed to burning carh (which we don't have) on packs.
>>3150874In the end both can help in different ways.
>Wander about.With only $18 and an unopened pack to your name there really isn't much of a point going to a cafe - instead you decide to explore the city. It's not every day that you can visit the city!>2004 - 15th June - 15:53Domino City is buzzing, with tourists, shoppers and crazed duelists roaming the streets. There's really nowhere like it. Who'd have imagined there'd be an entire section in a museum dedicated to Duel Monsters?!Why is there a water slide within an aquarium? The water's for fish, not humans!The City is.. so strange, so unfamiliar."Come now, place your bets on the victor!" screams a young voice not far off.I guess some things never change.Continuing onward the voice becomes louder and more distinct until you turn a corner and its source becomes visible - A girl not much older than you stands on a bench, attempting to attract passerby without much success.Ah snap, she notices you staring and pounces before you can walk away."You there, the generic looking kid."Bitch I'm one of a kind."What's your name kid?""Davy..""Well Davy, have I got a proposition for you."Oh boy.

>>3150936>>3150932Yeah these. Tell them we're willing to make it a tad more credibke by slapping on something about it being "Dual Academy Credible" or what not and have us act as an announcer for a 25% cut! Money money money money money money money money money money money money money motherfucka

Plus include a cash prize for the winner and a gimmic or something. Like, if you beat your opponent in 10 turns or less you're entered into a drawing for a rare card or if you sweep the bracket you get yourself a prize regardless.

Just think, you could attract a bigger crowd halfway through the tournament, why stop promoting at the start is what I'm thinking.""And you're doing this for free?" she asks dubiously."Nah, I expect to be compensated for that little display I made." you comment, to which she sighs."In any case, for advertising and commentating I request at least 25% of your earnings."If she was drinking a beverage she'd have spat it out in surprise, that much is clear."Twenty-five percent? Just for speaking? Are you mad?""I don't see what's the problem.""Well namely my other friends in this tournament are getting a buck per six.""Uhuh... How many of you are there?""Including me? Five.">"Fine, I'll take a single buck per every six like everyone else.>"I'll take less since I'm feeling generous (How much per $6?)> Nah I want more.>I'll do it for freeKeep in mind she hasn't said yes to anything, y'all gotta be persuasive mother fuckers.Also while we're at it, I don't suppose you all wish to join in the tournament? Or do y'all just wanna commentate?
>>3151350>"Fine, I'll take a single buck per every six like everyone else.And mama told me cash ain't lying on the street
>>3151350>Fine, I'll take a single buck per every six like everyone else.No money to lose here, only to make.
>>3151350While I REALLY want to convince this little girl to backstab her friends in the name of profit, I feel that's a bad work ethic... OH, idea! Maybe raise the entry fee by 2 bucks for every 4-5 duelists who enter? Otherwise, >"Fine, I'll take a single buck per every six like everyone else.>Just commentateWe ain't opening our darkened chaos deck till we record it damn it.
>"Fine, I'll take a single buck per every six like everyone else.We like to show boat huh. I hope we see bit of machine as they were crayzee in GX era (not optimized of course) and would love bit of clear world play.
>>3151375She's just a bit older than us. You're just calling her a kid for the hell of it.
>>3151350>"Fine, I'll take a single buck per every six like everyone else.
>>3151350I'LL DO ITFOR FREE.
>>3151376Eh... Not happening that deck has really direct connection to darkness. How about some early Noble Knight? http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Noble_Knight
>>3151350>a tenner We're as English as Bakura aren't we.
>>3151448That fealling when you find out you suggested dark bad wrong cards.
>>3151449You don't say tenner?
>>3151459Eh it's accent kind of thing.
>>3151350>"Fine, I'll take a single buck per every six like everyone else.bit ly 2GUwISh This is our deck btw idk if it helps I don't know how to post links
>>3151467You copy paste a link? Like I did?
>>3151459I'm the other uk poster.It's a British term.
>>3151472But tenner is such a neat term. Americans should use it!Alrighty chapperoonies, do you want me to commentate and narrate every duel, a select few, or skip the duels entirely?
>>3151498a select few
>>3151498One or two.And why we simple give her "tenner"? We were supposed to make bet with her. Or that wouldn't work and its QMs streamlining?
>>3151510Wait what? Oh shit you're right I fucked up sort of. I was intending to have her pay us back for that afterwards along with the rest of the pay.
>>3151518That's ok? She probably wasn't hoping to get 10$ out of this so that would be fair and make her actually agree to it
>>3151518Not so big a deal as long as we get more than 10$ and select few highlights would be for the best.
What does Davy look like?
>>3151620Probs a blonde. I think there's like, a code that the Japans have amongst themselves that a certain color hair means a certain persoanlity? Like, Red is hot tempered, Blue is calm and collected and what not.
>>3151709Given his verbiage and attitude, blond seems good
Really want a deck with this unstoppable beast! I really think this unstoppable beast should be baned! (Thats what some contestant thinks.)

Made a deck that sucks (but if you can pull off Huge Revolution with this build your legend) meaning its perfect for our noob lvl. Its an ill fit for this tournament as its heavy stall but oh well.Monster:La Jinn the Mystical Genie of the Lamp x1United Resistance x3People Running About x3Oppressed People x3Fusilier Dragon, the Dual-Mode Beast x1Mobius the Frost Monarch x1Golem Sentry x1Pitch-Black Warwolf x1Deep Diver x2Emissary of the Oasis x2Spell:Different Dimension Capsule x2Enchanting Fitting Room x2Lightning Vortex x1Nightmare's Steelcage x2Shield & Sword x1Swords of Revealing Light x2Paralyzing Potion x2United We Stand x2Trap:Drop Off x1Huge Revolution x2Mirror Force x2Windstorm of Etaqua x2Spellbinding Circle x1
>>3151620>What does Davy look like?Human.I'm constantly vague about physical character traits so you can use your imagination.I guess Davy is blonde now.>>3152760Passerby: "Weow, das so powerful.">>3152864Oh damn son, thanks for that!>>3152952Interesting deck. I could give it to someone at some point
>>3152954Eh It gambles on Huge revolution which while good when it goes off can brick really easily. (The tribute monsters more or less can't the deck most of the time)You really sould use that site for deck lists.
>>3152954Carry not can't
>>3152954So does the picture means we lose money on this? Damn couldn't even get 10 participants.
>>3152961Could go either way.
>>3152980Geies were not Kaiba after all.
>>3152961>>3153063Shush yous, there hasn't even been a roll for it. Unless OP rolls in secret in which case damn it. I fucking told you people we should have mentioned the chance to win a SR, buf NOOOOO, can't imbellish the truth in the slightest. Rule of acquisition #239; Never be afraid to mislabel a product.
>>3153071Pft... You clearly don't see that im being needlessly melodramatic for the heck of it.
>>3153112I have money so I don't have to deal with this crap.
Hey guys how viable would be Fortune Laidies in GX era? (How much archetype support needs to be dropped? I plan on using only cards that were available in GOAT format as support that's not archetype specific.)
>>3153113Nice abridged reference.
>>3153165>Fortune LaidiesFortune Laidies? From 5D's? I'm not really familiar with that deck, someone else is gonna have to answer the specifics but do you know how many cards would be usable?>>3152958>You really should use that site for deck lists.I really should, thanks for showing me that site anon.>>3152961>So does the picture means we lose money on this?Lol, it's just a pic anon, No need to worry.>>3153071>Unless OP rolls in secret in which case damn it.I try not to roll when I can, I prefer to imagine if a comment is persuasive enough to succeed or if an action sounds feasible - I hope I'm not too biased with my judging.>>3153063>Geies were not Kaiba after all.Yet.These commentaries are taking longer than I thought. To keep the thread alive I'm wondering if you'd be up for a random duel with a random GX/OG era deck.
>>3153244Ffs. Computer doesn't save my tag. This is me.
>>3153244Who ARE YOU?! Nah jk my mans. Thank you though for explaining the mechanics of the system. I
>>3153244>>3153165Looked at the cards... They can swarm good and I'm afraid, not viable if only due to how easy spell and monster destruction is with that deck compared to anything else right now in universe.
>>3153313Fire and water do removal, dark and light go specially summons fueling the destruction and nobody cares about earth since its sub par burn card as per 5d's standard. Basically the whole engine is unsuitable for this era.
>>3153329Damn you right. I guess I'll be whays the best I can do with tokens... (Maybe multiply, Kariboh, detonite combo.)
Blue Thunder T-45 (x2)Cobra Jar (x2)Kuriboh (x3)Kuribohrn (x1)Dark Hole (x1)Different Dimension Capsule (x1)Fiend's Sanctuary (x1)United We Stand (x3)Temple of the Kings (x1)Detonate (x3)Multiply (x3)Mystical Space Typhoon (x2)Scapegoat (x2)Bottomless Trap Hole (x1)Cloning (x3)Mirror Force (x3)Gravity Bind (x1)Token Stampede (x3)Negate Attack (x3)Metalmorph (x1)So I said I will see what I can do with tockens... This is what I came up with. There's a bit anti synergy with T-45 and Gravity Bind but it won't come up much as there is only 1 gravity bind in deck. Anyways this most likely needs to bee further tweaked by QM if not likely pretty good/rich players deck.
>>3154983Well Somebody needs to sacrifice himself for suicide bomber tockens! Your not seeing T-45 do that do you.
Sorry my dudes, I haven't been able to finish up the commentary yet and it turns out I'll be having a busy weekend so I guess we'll pick this back up on Monday?
>>3155011Eh no problem see you then. If it's kicking your ass you could just do the finals commentary while glowing over the rest like saying some were good some were bad only few were anything to write home about? Only one duel might be more manageable.>>3154991Deck looks unique haven't thought of a token deck before.
>>3155011QM are the cards using show rules where applicable? Because show Card of Sanctity kicks ass.
>>3155011take your time my guy, we're in no rush. I just wanna record our pack opening and start our channel.
>>3153244>>3153165Thunder Dragons?The whole fusion thing fits the theme of the era, and they have really powerful boss monsters
>>3157253How powerful? Would they make BS deck for this era or can they be taken care of reasonably?
>>3158593Saying thunder dragons as they were an old archetype that got an insane amount of support recently.The fusion bosses, Colossus and Titan, both bring themselves out via Contact Fusion. Former stops the opponent from searching and the latter can pop cards like Dark Armed Dragon. They also receive protection from destruction as long as there are thunder monsters in the grave for them to banish as a cost.As for power level, it's a bit hard to gauge as it fluctuates depending on the meta. They're popular in the TCG nowadays because they hard counter Sky Strikers and Trickstars, two of the premier meta decks that rely heavily on adding cards to the hand and have a low attack ceiling. Meanwhile they aren't big in the OCG due to their meta not being heavily reliant on adding cards to the hand
>>3158593It depends heavily if they have access to Batteryman Solar. Otherwise as >>3158736said, they're a bit dependent on matchup and can get screwed over by non-targeting removals (lol dimensional barrier)But it still stomps all the protag decks though, unless if shit like Cubics, Chaos Max Turbo, and Super Poly Heroes are fair game
So season/end boss category I guess.
>>3143535>no synchro, no abc-xyz and definitely no PendufaggotsBlocks your path
>>3155859Nah it's tcg rules my good dude.>>3155029I might actually end up doing that all things considered.>>3157253Thunder Dragons? That looks more like a villain/boss deck than something the MC would have at this point. Plus they depend a fuck ton on Batteryman Solar, I could see it working though.>>3161075Damm, I wish I had that dudeski in my collection.Quest will continue in five-ish hours in any case everyone.
>>3161090Who says we're NOT the villain?! MUAHAHAHA!!
>>3161102villain route is a go
>>3161090>>3161102>>3161123A couple of decks on the top of my head right now that sort of fits into the gist of the eraMC-type- Super Poly Heroes- Fire Kings- Nepthys Ritual- Merlanteans- Frogs- Agents- Mekk-Knight Invoked- Trickstar (They actually don't need the links to function)- Subterror- Ojama ABC- Ritual Beasts- Vendread- Crystal Beasts- Prankids- Gem KnightRival-type- Dark Law Heroes- Fire Kings- Merlanteans- Gishiki- Altergeist (Like Trickstar they don't need the links)- Phantasm Spiral- Chaos Max Turbo- Thunder Dragon- True King Dinosaur- Cyber Dragon- Gladiator Beasts- Ancient GearVillain/Season finale boss-type- Shaddoll (Can also be a MC deck if duel monster spirit stuff exists)- Darklords- Worms- Vampires- Cubics- Lair of Darkness- Infernoids- Kaiju Relinquished- Domain Monarchs- True Draco
>>3161142I wouldn't mind us slooowly building into Ancient Gears.
>>3161144Or Monarchs & Vassals, for that matter.
>>3161142And adding a bit moreMC Type- Black Luster Soldier- Six Samurai- Buster Blader- Skull Servant- ShinobirdsRival Type- Kozmo- Traptrix- Frightfur and Fluffals- VolcanicsVillain Type- Demise and Ruin- Destiny Board- Fortune Lady- Krawlers + Prediction Princess
Wouldn't mind Shinobirds especially since they have both ritual and spirit monsters the monster types I like the most.
>>3161123>>3161102Kaiba 2.0 - The Commentator.He doesn't kill you in shadow games, his comments are enough to put you to sleep... Indefinitely.>>3161142>>3161172Thanks for the deck ideas my dude!
>>3161263Personally would love traptrix rival.
>>3161266What is it with 4chan and traps?
>>3161322Get you head out of gutter. Besides, she said she's unable to hurt most things 800 attack and all! So me being proud 2500 attack better should be fine. What do you mean it's a trap hole waiting to happen? I am still gonna shank her... (30 seconds later there is a mysterious pile of bones next to her.)
>>3161334>Get you head out of gutter.What gutter? It's common knowledge that nobody dates in Yu-Gi-Oh! It's as though every main character is a cuck.I wonder if the mistreatment of a Traptrix plant could be tried as physical abuse...
>>3161360Eh, let's not find out as some sucker has to deal with their spirits more than likely. As we know the cute is just a lure for the real predators beneath.
>>3161375>>3161360The one time the girl won, she was a duel spirit, so there's actually quite a lot of options if they are incorporated in the story.
>>3161263Will we keep at GX /pre-synchros cards QM? Tbh, it'd probably be way better if we did because currents archetypes are just way too overpowered when compared to those that existed a decade ago and that would just kill most of the fun of the duels.
>>3161456I think he will keep it GX power scale wise like cherry picking to make some stuff usable or descarding support if it's too much. Plus nothing beyond fusion in extra deck.
>>3161456>Will we keep at GX /pre-synchros cards QM?I started with that plan in mind but everyone's been suggesting post-GX decks so I'm on the fence now.>>3161437>The one time the girl won, she was a duel spirit, so there's actually quite a lot of options if they are incorporated in the story.I'm surprised you can remember a duel like that. Impressive anon.--Get your game on was the best opening in the anime. Change my mind.
>>3161456I hope not because things become really boring that way.Heroes, Cyber Dragons, Machine Angels, Red Eyes, Blue-Eyes, Dark Magicians, Thunder Dragons, Nepthys, and Dinos really only become powerful decks after the 5D's/Zexal era due to the amount of support they received over the years.I think the current restriction of no xyz/synchro/pendulum/link era is fine as it is, as the extra deck toolbox is gone and a lot of what would be tier-2 archetypes now have the room to move in and shine.Sure, there's the Monarchs and Master Peace, but at the same time, those two are very good candidates for a final boss in a narrative standpoint.
>>3161477As long as you cherry pick stuff that's not broken I don't mind if rarely there shows up some newer card and rarer still newer deck just not full powered.
>>3161483>>3161477>>3161456>>3161526The one major problem with Yugioh has always been the Toolboxification of the Extra Deck, which started during the Synchro Era and is exemplified by the absolute state that is Rank 4 turbo and the entire Link Era.Without Synchro, Xyz, and Link, you have essentially removed one of the main power creep factors of the series and allowed a breathing spot for a large variety of archetypes to shine on their own. Fusions, with the exception of Heroes, really only use the extra deck as a place to house their boss monsters instead of the usual "Bring out a bunch of generic xyz/links to lock the opponent out of the game" or "14 extra deck extenders to bring out a nigh-unkillable omni negate synchro boss monster while drawing 20 cards"
>>3161575In a way duel links (the game) prove that as such decks like Bujin function ok without their extra deck.
"Fine, I'll take a single buck per every six like everyone else.""... Alrighty then" the girl states in response, obviously uncomfortable with the agreement but willing to accept it. "You gonna participate as well? I'd be hard narrating and dueling at the same time.""Nah, I'll stick with crowd control and advertisement. You and your pals have a game plan? Something like split the winnings?" you ask."Dude. That should be obvious. Yes." she answers, "Whatever we gain from bets is the real prize of course. We don't have a master scheme or anything, this is just for fun and for a quick buck.""Just checking Kid, with the way you were promoting I was having a hard time believing you knew what you were doing.""Shuddup."--The turnout is a comfortable figure of eleven contestants - mostly teens and children, as well as a gathering of parents, couples and the occasional onlooker.. This was totally thanks to your brilliant speech although your new accomplices probably wouldn't agree with you.Well it seems like we've reached the peak for out turnout, at least for the start. You begin with haste."Welcome one and all," you begin, jumping back onto a bench as to proclaim the start of the tournament. "Welcome to the very first Domino City Duel Carnival!"A burst of polite applause can be heard from the adults, a few of the younger contestants whoop and jump."I'll be your host...>Davy.">Write in a Host name."Today we have eleven contestants competing for a grand sum of one hundred dollars~" you hear a few children make oos at the number. "That's right. One of these eleven contestants will be the proud owner of a hundred bill! Fear not if you hope to win something even if you haven't entered. Over there you'll find a manned betting box if you wish to place some odds on who you think will win... Your favourite duelist or your own child, of course they'll be the same person though."Because of the odd number of contestants numbers 1, 4, 5, 7 and 10 will be having a match fewer than the six other contestants. The tournament will be a single-round of what we like to call a 'Speed Duel'. Only 4k life points and you must win within 20 rounds, else it becomes sudden death with the first take any amount of life points being the victor!""Without much more of your attention taken.. May the tournament begin!">Cont.
>>3162074Duel 1..."Let's get this party started, I draw." Cries the young contestant, drawing a card."First I activate 'Upstart Goblin', I draw and you gain 1000 Life Points!" the girl smiles innocently."Then I activate another 'Upstart Goblin'!""My.. It seems Contestant 2 is being quite generous this duel, setting Contestant 3's Life Points at 6000 before her first turn!" you exclaim the obvious predicament to the onlooking crowd."I then set a card in my magic zone and another in my monster... Now I endy my turny." 'Endy my turny'? Does she think that's cute?"Fine, my turn then. I draw." Your female companion appears to be taking this duel seriously, regardless that her competition is barely older than a toddler."I summon 'Abyss Soldier' and attack your face down monster!"The little girl flips her monster so it becomes visible to the onlookers. "It's a 'Nimble Momonga'" she states merrily before grabbing her deck. "I gain 1000 Life Points and summon his pals from my deck!"Two more 'Nimble Momonga' cards appear on the field, afterwards she reshuffles her deck."My, not only is it turn two but both competitors have more Life Points than they started with... What an unexpected twist.."---Duel 6...I attack you directly with my first 'Blackland Fire Dragon' knocking your Life Points to 1800! Then with my 'Abaki'! Hello, what's this? You only have 100 Life Points? Not any more! I attack you again with my second 'Blackland Fire Dragon'!""Damn.. I mean INCREDIBLE! Number 10 completely decimated his competitor... A child.---Duel 9..."AMAZING! Competitor 11 fused their 'Elemental HERO Neos' and 'Neo-Spacian Grand Mole'-""He can't do that! He hasn't used 'Polymerization'!" Cries the competitor."Sorry kid, normally you'd be right but this time he summoned 'Elemental HERO Grand Neos'. It's a special case.. I'm also assuming he'll use the cards ability to return your one monster to your hand.""That's too powerful!""Rich kids," you shrug it off. Sure this kid may have a few good cards but that doesn't necessarily mean he'll win. Actually thinking about it why would a kid like him join this tournament anyway? Is this what they call a plot hole?>Cont.
>>3162076The Final Duel..."And now the moment you've all been waiting for... The Finals!"The crowd has somewhat grown, the families of those who lost were replaced by new faces. Many of whom had bet a buck or two."We have our resident duelist, playing with a water deck.. Contestant 3!" Your female friend gives a silent wave to the crowd."And we have the touring Hero-type duelist.. Contestant 11!" The older teenager stands and blows a kiss to the crowd, gandering a few chuckles and several complaints of disgust."Without much further to do... Let the game start!""It's time to Duel!"---[DUEL START]---#3 LP: 4000 || #11 LP: 4000"My turn, I draw!" Exclaims your teammate."To start things off Contestant 3 has activated her field spell 'Umi' and summons 'Aquarian Alessa' to the field! She end the turn by placing a card face down!""Contestant 11 seems to be starting it safely, setting a monster onto the field and by placing two cards face down." you begin to explain, "Need I remind him that this is a limited turn duel, playing safe may cost him.""It's Contestant 3's second turn, she seems to be starting it off with a sacrificial summon... I wonder wha-" She places her new monster onto the field."It's 'Mobius the Frost Monarch'" She explains to you, interrupting your ever so important commentary. "I can destroy two spell or trap cards when he's summoned.""Well, thank you for the explanation Contestant..." you sigh and return to addressing the crowd, "Although it's as she says. Contestant 11's Magic Zone is emptied."The girl begins explaining before you can continue your commentary. "I then follow up by Special Summoning 'Aqua Spirit' by removing from play my 'Aquarian Alessa'." Turning, she sticks her tongue out at you before returning to her opponent. "I attack your face down monster with my 'Mobius' who now has 2600 ATK thanks to 'Umi'.""Oh it seems that the opponent had 'Solar Flare Dragon' - it's ability won't help in this predicament ladies and gentlemen. And like that Contestant 11's field is emptied!" You shout out, regaining your ability to commentate."Contestant 3 attacks 11 directly with her 'Aqua Spirit' of 1800 ATK!" It's only the third turn but it could be over by the fifth!"---#3 LP: 4000 || #11 LP: 2200>Cont.
>>3162082"Contestant 11 sets a monster as well as a card in his Magic Zone before ending his turn.. Oh dear, how can he get out of this?!""'Mobius the Frost Monarch' attacks the face down card but is countered with a trap!.. 'Sakuretsu Armour'! For those who don't know, this trap destroys the opponent's attacking monster, no questions asked!""No problem, I still have my 'Aqua Spirit'." The girl exclaims to you before sending her monster to the Grave. "I guess I attack with my other monster then, seeing as you can't fight back any more."Once again the Opponent's field is stripped of its cards."I then set a monster and end my turn." She states."I'm not out of this yet! I'll win this for sure!" the boy draws his next card."The Contestant summons an 'Elemental Hero Lady Heat'! Even though it has only 1300 ATK, well thanks to 'Umi' it really has 1100 ATK. He's attacking the face down monster, which turns out to be a 'Treeborn Frog'! With only 300 ATK it's destroyed!""It's Number 3's turn again... Although not before 'Elemental Hero Lady Heat's ability activates and she loses 200 Life Points!"---#3 LP: 3800 || #11 LP: 2200---The girl rolls her eyes. "Ohhh I'm so scarred, I lost 200 Life Points. Yeah well I summon an 'Abyss Soldier' in attack mode and with my 'Aqua Spirit' I'll be taking your one monster. Again."#3 LP: 3800 || #11 LP: 1500Then with my 'Abyss Soldier' of 2000 ATK I'll end this duel."#3 LP: 3800 || #11 LP: -500---[DUEL END]---"Well, if that doesn't put the speed in 'Speed Duel' I don't know what does! Thank you everyone who participated, watched and who placed bets. Contestant 3 will collect her prize in a short while. Those who won on their bet please return to the betting box. Other than that I hope you all had a pleasant time and have a great day. This has been your host, signing out."---"I'm surprised, I didn't think you'd be any good at dueling." you say to the girl after the crowd disperses, she's busy counting up the earnings from the bets but your comment makes her look up at you."Hmm? Oh wow I'm glad you had complete and total trust in me from the very start Davy.">Cont.
>>3162084"You're not supposed to trust strangers though.""I suppose not.. Well anyway here's your cut. One dollar for every six." She pushes a pile of coins and notes your way, although you don't count it there and then it looks to be at least $20. "Oh and here's what I owe you for your promotion." She stand up, grabs your hand and forces a crumpled ten dollar bill into your hand. "I can't take money from a stranger.""Oh," you stare at the note dubiously. I guess you were expecting to much for an extra tip for your extravagant display. "Well I guess we are strangers?""And here's in case I have another brilliant idea." She places another note into you hand, although this time it's a slip of paper rather than a bank note. "That's my number.. and my name. I realised I never introduced myself." She chuckles.You open the note, sure there seems to be a phone numbe- Wait. You look up. "Your name is Irene?""Don't go there. In any case people call me 'Rina'.""Well, it's nice to finally meet you, Rina."She smirks. "Nice to meet ya too Dav'""Dav'?""We'll work on your nickname. In any case what are you gonna do now?"You look at your watch, it's currently 17:21. Your parents would be expecting you at the train station by 21:00 the latest."I'm not sure really, I've still got time to kill before I have to catch a train.""You don't live here?""Nah I'm a country bumpkin, couldn't you tell by my ruggish charm and dashing good looks?""Well if you're free, you can always hang with us - that being my group you didn't really talk to during the tournament.">"Eh, sure. Why not.">"If it's all the same to you, I have someplace I'd rather be.">Other (Write in)
>>3162087Sure why not?
>>3162087>"Sure why not?"
>>3162087>"Eh, sure. Why not."
>>3162087>"If it's all the same to you, I have someplace I'd rather be."
>"Sure why not?"

>>3167447>>3167481>Might be an idea to make a new thread.Alright, first I'll need to work out how to archive shit though.>We're far down on the catalog now.That just means only the most committed questers will be here.>Also yay, we actually made a friend.We're not a loner any more!--->"Eh, sure. Why not.""It's not like I've got anything else planned" you tell her. "Where'd you plan on going?""Where any kid worth his salt hangs out."You nod knowingly. "The abandoned quarry.""The back-alley skate park.. Dude are you okay?" she asks, her voice carrying a semi-serious tone as though she isn't too sure if you're joking or not."Yeah. I guess things really are different here.""No shit." Rina pockets the remaining cash, "We should head off though. Thank god you're with me, you'd be lost in under a minute.""As if! If anything I'd probably get there faster.""You gonna test that theory? My services ain't cheap though, looks like you have 'just enough' though." she rubs her"Are we heading off or what?""Right, of course."..."Soooo, Duel Academy?" Rina asks after a silence fell between you."Hmm?""You said something 'bout it earlier.""Ah, I'm a student there - I mean I will be.""The entrance exams were today?""You didn't know?"She sighs, "It's not like this whole city revolves around some academy hidden far, far away.""Fair point. Haven't you thought of joining?""Haven't a need to. I've seen tens of snobs in Blue, if the whole school's like that then I'm fine with the city life.""Blue? You mean Obelisk?""Probably."Several conversations and hundreds of turns later Rina slows to a halt."It's just around the corner, just don't try and prove yourself or anything. That'd make you look like a tool.""What?"A voice cuts through the air. "Ey Ri-Ri you made it back! Who's this?"A younger girl appears from an open ground floor window, her forehead and hair hidden behind a grey beanie."Maya. Davy." your companion introduces you both without much effort."Ri-Ri?" you tease."Don't." responds your friend.-(To Rina)->"I like the pet name.">"But Ri-Ri is so 'cute'." you joke.>"You hang out with smallfry?">Don't respond.>Other(Write in)-(To Maya)->"Sup.">"What's cooking?">Say something less autistic. (Write in).>Other(write in)
>>3167756>To RinaDon't respond.>To Maya"Yo."On the grounds that we live in anime world, and therefore sounds cool by default.
>>3167756-(To Rina)->"But Ri-Ri is so 'cute'." you joke.-(To Maya)-"Yo."
>>3167756>"Where any kid worth his salt hangs out.">You nod knowingly. "The abandoned quarry.">"The back-alley skate park.. Dude are you okay?"I don't know why I found that so funny.
>>3168179>I don't know why I found that so funny.Glad to know I'm not the only autist here.---"Yo." You greet Maya. Like any cool anime character your hands remain firmly in your pockets through the ordeal."Heya" the kid responds before returning to Rina. "So, Burke wants his share. He's been kicking cans waiting for you.""Yeah, yeah. I thought he might." Your companion sighs. "We're heading there anyway, tell him we're coming."The child dashes around a corner without replying. You can only assume she's delivering the message."Come on then,""Coming, coming."You turn a corner and the alley opens up into a courtyard of some kind not much larger than the town hall back home. The floor tarmac and walls made from the neigbouring towers of buildings. Sunlight reaches the area only at midday, to provide light two street lamps are set up in separate corners, although several areas are basked in shadows. Several wooden ramps and slopes litter the floor."Oi, Rina." Shouts a male voice, the unnatural wavering in his voice suggest he's still going through puberty."Don't worry Keytal, I've got your share." Rina pulls a crumpled envelope and shoves it into the grubby fingers of the teen.He nods, checking the contents before looking up at you."Who's this?""Davy, he helped with the tournament.""The screaming kid?""Yeah that's him.">"Screaming?">"Shut it. I was advertising.">"Yeah, that's me. The loud guy.">"Thanks but I can make my own introductions" you say you Rina.>Other(Write In)
>>3169763>"Yeah, that's me. The loud guy."
>>3169763Shit it, I was advertising.
>>3169763>"Shut it. I was advertising."
>>3169763>Yeah, that's me. The loud guy.Telling people "shut it" destroys the "cool guy" image straight away. Like we can't tryhard but we can't go full PSHHH IM THE COOLEST either.
>>3169763>"Yeah, that's me. The loud guy."Add>"What exactly did you do?"
>>3147452Shit no lie, that whole match was hype. I really enjoyed how you and all the anons got so into It, even if it was a bit salty it was acceptable, competitive salt. I loved it. I'm really hoping this didn't die by the time I get to the bottom of the thread.
>>3169763>Yeah, that's me. The loud guy.">quest isn't deadNice
>>3172353>Very soon the thread will close.Alright, I'll start up a sequel thread tomorrow. It seems we're going with 'loud boy' as our response.>>3172550>Shit no lie, that whole match was hype. I loved it and I'm glad the thread isn't dead.Hey, thanks dude. I'm glad you bothered to read everything.
