The Zones Pointed at by Link Markers Can be Used to Bring Out Extra Deck Monsters
Although Extra Deck Monsters can only be Summoned to the Extra Monster Zone Normally, if you have a Link Monster in the Extra Monster Zone, the Zones pointed at by their Link Markers can be used to Summon Extra Deck Monsters! So if you get out a Link Summon quickly, you can bring out Fusion, Synchro, and Xyz Monsters in succession. Of course, you can Summon another Link Monster in one of these Zones, so if you play your cards right, you can fill your entire Main Monster Zone with Extra Deck Monsters! The new metagame will require careful consideration of where to place monsters!

Probably the most all-encompassing change to the ruleset since the game's beginnings. There are retailers threatening to stop stocking the game less than a day after the reveal.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Vrains Rule Changes


The first change, which will seem relatively minor once we're done here, is the ABOLISHMENT OF PENDULUM ZONES. Instead, Pendulum Monsters can be activated in the left- and right-most Spell and Trap Zones, with them being treated as Pendulum Zones only when a Pendulum Monster (as a spell) is in them.
There are two new zones on the playfield, the EXTRA ZONES. There are two on the board situated between each player's 2nd and 4th Monster Zone, and are initally not owned by either player. The first player to summon a monster from the Extra Deck (that's Fusion, Synchro, Xyz, or something new we'll get to) places it in one of these Zones, and the other then belongs to their opponent. With an exception we'll get to, YOU CAN ONLY SPECIAL SUMMON EXTRA DECK MONSTERS IN THESE EXTRA ZONES, meaning each player (initally) can only play one such monster at a time.
The fourth Extra Deck monster I alluded to is the LINK MONSTER, a dark blue card with no level or defense, instead having a Link Number. (Because they have no defense stat, they cannot be in defense position, or face-down.) They are summoned by tributing a number of monsters that fit a condition listed on the card equal to their Link Number, with another Link Monster counting for an amount of monsters equal to its Link Number. They are also the aforementioned exception to the limitation on Extra Deck summoning. Pictured above is Decode Talker, a Link Monster. Notice the arrows around the card picture. SPACES POINTED TO BY THE LIT ARROWS CAN BE FILLED WITH EXTRA DECK MONSTERS. This is a double-edged sword, notice the arrow pointing towards the opponent. Yes, this means positioning matters again.

Forgot the most important part


The Newly Created Extra Monster Zone
>You can only use one of them!<

When the Duel begins, neither Extra Monster Zone is considered to belong to a specific player. When a player Special Summons a monster to one of them, that Zone then becomes treated as part of that player’s field, and the other then becomes treated as the other player’s field. The tactics of a Duel will change drastically depending on who can grab an Extra Monster Zone first! An Extra Deck Monster can only be Summoned to the Extra Monster Zone! But if you Summon a Link Monster to one of the Extra Monster Zone first, you can utilize it to its max potential!

*Extra Deck Monsters, like Fusion, Synchro, Xyz, and Link, cannot be Summnoned to the Main Monster Zone, beware!


Essentially extra deck spam has been nerfed and the secondary market has been fucked.

>> No.51773543

>>51773408

You can only summon ONE fusion/sychro/xyz monster, in ONE specific new zone that is your sixth monster zone. The only way to do more extra deck summoning is to send monsters to the graveyard to summon a "link" monster, and that lets you summon extra deck monsters to other spaces, but only spaces that the link monster is pointing at. A link monster has 1-8 arrows and they point to different directions.

Basically every archetype that relied on multiple fusions/etc is dead and some monsters that have existed for years can't be summoned anymore without buying new cards. Shooting quasar dragon and stuff is not possible to summon the "normal" way anymore.

TL;DR: They errata'd every single fusion-like monster so they don't work anymore. Buy new cards, or don't play the game.

So let me see if I understand this after not playing YGO for a few years.

Extra monsters such as Synchro/XYZ/Fusion can only be summoned into one new slot, which kills off decks that rely on summoning these cards?

Yugioh has an 'extra deck' (read: second hand) of 15 monster cards.
You can only play those cards in special ways, but always have them "in hand".
Also, those cards are really really strong.

The rule change is:
Instead of having 5 monsters, you get 6 monsters but only one can be from your extra deck.
There's also a new card type that lets you spend a monster slot to convert a DIFFERENT monster slot into another slot for extra deck monsters.


No idea how pendulum work, but they used to have their own zone.
Now, you need to spend a spell or trap slot on them.

Attempted YGO to MTG translation (I don't speak native YGO, go easy on me)

In YGO you get a second mini deck which has 15 creatures. You don't draw from it, it's like a second hand. These creatures all had to be played in some special way, not just hardcasted. The simplest one IIRC is combining two monsters, sort of like Brisela and that one giant eldrazi town thing. These creatures tended to be OP as fuck.

The new rule says that both players may only ever have a combined total of two of these creatures on the field at the same time, unless they play a a new special kind of creature that lets you play more special creatures.

TL;DR: Cheating Emrakul, Blightsteel Colossus, Platinum Angel, Ali from Cairo, and Elesh Norn at the same time on turn 1 is no longer possible.

It's having a tough time in the US due to cultural differences and shitty tournament management, but it's very much still being played in the US.

I really enjoy the gameplay of vanguard. Yea, triggers could have been implemented in a more elegant and less sacky fashion, but vanguard does a lot of things right compared to other card games.

* next to zero resource screw
* Next to zero bricking
* 30 or so supported deck types
* Fairly tame when it comes to broken-ness

I think that vanguard just has a presentation problem. Most players spend ten seconds reading the rules, go "lol trigger RNG." and then dismiss it. Then they go back to their own pet games that have much worse kinds of random screwing, but those things are accepted like the weather.

Imagine it like this.

A new smaller deck of cards is released. It's 15 cards big, and there are new creatures and new ways of summoning them.

All of the creatures rest in this deck. The deck cannot be drawn from and creatures can only be brought out from it via special conditions.

For the strongest one, you have to cast a new type of spell. There are some generic ones, some for different mana types and some for specific monsters. One might read "Send 2 creatures from you field or hand to the graveyard to summon X". Another might read "Exile creatures from your graveyard or field to summon X", or "If you have 10 or less life and your opponent controls a creature, send creatures from your library to the graveyard as materials to summon X."

These creatures are all-around strong monsters. The very strongest require specific (named) creatures, some might require something simple like "One Goblin and One Red Creature", or perhaps "One Legendary Creature and One Creature". For the weakest, it might even be "Two black creatures."

Next, there's a new keyword on certain creatures. If one of your creatures has that keyword, you can send it and another creature you control to the graveyard to bring forth another creature from this "extra" deck. Fewer decks can run this, but eventually staple goodstuff creatures with that keyword are printed, ensuring many decks can run it.

Finally, there's a creature that requires two creatures of the same mana cost, and instead of tapping to use abilities, it removes one of those creatures as material.

Everyone gets used to these new methods. Some run decks based around a specific one, others go for decks that run all of them at once, others don't really use them but can go into them for utility, and some decks get bonuses if their opponent has such creatures.

For a time, everything is fine.

Then they tell everyone aside from the last two groups to suck their dick, eat shit, new mechanics now, that old shit you bought is worthless.

Hold up. Now, I may be looking too deep into something that isn't there, but consider the following:

Pendulum Monsters are sent to the top of the extra deck when they would be sent from the field to the graveyard. They can be brought back into the Main Monster Zones via Pendulum Summoning. This is how they've always worked. Now, only Extra Deck Monsters can be summoned into the Extra Monster Zones. Because Pendulum Monsters reside in the Extra Deck after destruction, are they then treated as Extra Deck Monsters? If so, can we Pendulum Summon Pendulum Monsters into the Extra Monster Zone?

basically this will be great for the people who didn't like that you can't play yugioh like the protagonists of the show do (I.E having signature cards and their permutations/advanced forms)

for anyone who has actually gotten used to the idea of playing in the real life metagame this is probably a game ruining change that's just gonna make us play magic/hearthstone/vanguard/pokemon/shadowverse/whatever instead.

no such thing as too easy, I like actually being able to summon monsters.

there's basically no game that's that slow, literally every PVP game ever(except chess) is fast paced. all this nerf is going to do is make 90% of all cool cards worthless and make the game boring to play since none of the decks you like or monsters you like will actually work.

and even if this was meant to stop people from summoning 5 monsters in one turn for an OTK, there's ridiculous collateral damage since this dumpsters basically every deck that even uses extra deck monsters

a better way to do that with no collateral would be making it so every extra deck monster you summon is minus 1 from the total amount of monsters you're allowed to have on the field (so, if you have 3 extra deck monsters on the field you can't have any more, or 2 extra deck monsters and 1 regular monster)

Yes, links are basically a summon tax. You want more extra deck monsters? Well you have to play these blue cards first to get more zones.

The problem here is that while this seems like a perfect idea to slow down the game it just makes a lot of irrelevant deck complete trash and some meta decks just can play around the link limitation. In other words this summon tax makes bad decks shitty and is just an inconvenience for meta decks. We will still see the same old fuckhuge/long combos down the line they will just include link monsters so we can extend them or start them. This new rule just fucks over old decks the need the extra in my opinion.

The problem is that unlike previous new mechanics that have come out, there were never these massive rule changes that essentially fucked the functionality of many archetypes while at the same time saying "if you want these to still work you have to invest in our Brand New New Card Type™."

The game already gets to Modern levels of expensive with many tech cards and extra deck choices hitting high price points due to their usability, but then saying you need this new card type just for certain things to work essentially screams into existence cards that will be way more expensive than Baby Jace during KTK-BFZ Standard, hell maybe more expensive than Nekroz of Brionac was in his prime.

Of course my casual Yubel deck is going to love the change with the game slowing the hell down enough for me to probably have a better advantage, and Monarchs are going to be going at the same speed unaffected by this, but anyone else who touched an extra deck is essentially fucked if they went even a little bit hard.

Clearly that's not what I am saying, but it should at least be worth the cardboard its printed on.
In terms of magic you should be able to buy four copies of it and at least win a couple matches at a local tournament and in terms of yugioh you should be able to buy three and at least win a couple of matches.

Your average deck that plays an xyz to kill something or make an answer or whatever is not hurt at all and that's the majority of decks that don't have a specific gimmick and/or aren't those summon spam decks people supposedly hatred.

I like Yugioh and I liked what it was. A lot of people will say that now after the fact, but I 100% guarantee you if you look in the archives of old Yugioh threads you will find the exact complaints the rule change fixes. The Link mechanic, also, actually HELPS synchros and xyz. The rules change are what made it so you could only control one without links. If Links didn't exist, decks that focused on summoning lots of extra deck monsters, even if it was for mostly innocent means like making quasar or the quantal dude, would BE ACTUALLY, FACTUALLY unplayable as opposed to now. You can still do it even with the only cards revealed.

it isn't even just the best decks that do it. I've not played meta since t2 inzektors back in 2012. Nowadays, I play little but silly jank decks that do nothing except achieve very limited goals. My all-time favourite decks are D/D/D, which are crippled by this rule change, and super quants, which are now unplayable.

Looking at my current decklist on pro, which has the decks I've not deleted, this is what this rule change has done:
abyss actors: relatively untouched.
DDD: dead
dinomist: crippled
E-HERO: dead
fluffals: dead
gagaga: dead
glad beasts: crippled, but playable
insect spam: crippled, but playable
inzektors: dead
magician girls: crippled, but playable
melodious: crippled, but playable
red dragon archfiend: dead
SPYRAL: dead
Super Quant: dead
Utopia: dead
Non-ED performapals: untouched
morphtronics: dead
crystal beasts: dead
neo spacians: dead

This rule change hurts far more than just meta and spam decks, it hurts any deck that actually special summons more than once, no matter how casual the player or deck. It is ludicrous that konami thinks this will bring balance back to the game, especially since, as many have already pointed out, main-deck focused decks have dominated several formats in the last few years.

The only rank four it really depended on beyond the simple rank 4 outs that every deck uses when they need to was Lavalval Chain to dump Releaser of Rituals.

This is obviously a pander to nostalgiafags, but my question is why? They don't fucking play the game, and no matter what you do they won't play the game. They're not the ones who go out and autistically buy boxes of this shit, at most I can see them buying a yugi starter deck while waiting in line at Target or something.

I'm pretty sure I said somewhere that yes there are some summon spam decks that are mostly innocent.

Also Super Quantals are playable. You can easily get 3 open spots on the field with Decode Talker into Gaiasaber. It's not great but still functioning. And considering that you apparently like decks that do it regardless of how good they are, that shouldn't matter that it's not great.

Ignoring that information and any potential misevaluation of "dead" versus "crippled" in your list (of which there appears to be a lot-- Dinomist? Spyral? Gladiator Beasts? What the fuck?), that's a tiny fraction of decks in this game. If most decks weren't good to begin with, and they got made worse, who cares?If you played a bad deck, why does it matter that it got worse? It wasn't competing in the upper echelons to begin with, and it should still function in whatever casual environment you're playing in.

I feel like people are thinking "HOLY SHIT NOW I CAN ONLY SUMMON AN EXTRA DECK MONSTER ONCE PER GAME HOLY SHIT MY DECKS ARE DEAD". No. It's actually much, much closer to once per turn, and even that's not hard. And as explained, in the situation where you're actually unable to summon another extra deck monster because the opponent couldn't kill the one you have, in how many situations will you lose because you can't summon another one?The only instance I can think of is if your opponent wipes your whole board with their own huge dude but kept your one weak piddly extra deck monster on the board. That's an extremely narrow situation at best. It's the natural flow of the game that players kill each other's mosnters. They have to in order to get to you. The times where you lose because you were locked out of playing a second extra deck monster to answer something your opponent did without killing the first are going to be few and far between.

>> No.51791791

It wasn't just nostalgiafags. Citing extra deck spam as a flaw of the game from both "pros" and casual players, for years. Since Synchros. Just because you like and play a game regardless doesn't make it not a flaw. Whether it is one is another issue entirely, but people pretending like this suddenly wasn't an issue with anybody but the lowest common denominator when we finally get a change answering it is frustrating.

>> No.51791815

>>51791732
except even with 3 slots open, it remains impossible to use 3 mechs on the field to make magnus, because that requires summoning a fourth Xyz, or you pop one of your xyz which means you're drastically limiting the number of materials magnus can realistically have, meaning his 6+ effect is likely going to become an impossibility for more than the near future.

and it's not a tiny fraction, it's a vast majority. Only two very limited playstyles are now even possible to play with, that being either maindeck monster spam or control with a single ED. Just because YOU like playing against nothing but the same boring control decks doesn't mean that's what everyone enjoys.

that's not even taking into consideration how decode talker requires a minimum of 3 monsters unless you have link monsters, further slowing you in the assumption you can crap out 3 effect monsters, summon talker, and still have materials for another, and assuming you don't immediately LOSE decode talker.

>> No.51791848

It hasn't been an issue for years though. It doesn't change the fact that recent decks that have been T1 don't rely on spamming from the extra deck.

If you have all 3 mechs, you can clear your link to summon the magnus. Im going to assume youre smart enough to figure out how. This is also assuming that you wont be able to use a filled spot to summon a new xyz with the old one ehich. We currently have no reason to believe this is the case. You could still rabbit with only one open space, or tribute summon with none. We dont even know how this mrchanic works yet exactly to be crying about how decks are dead.

So, the issue is actually that you have to PLAY links at all? The situstion isnt the same as when they were first released, but xyz are the same thing. You had to be playing them. The reason is different but the fact is if you werent playing xyz your deck didnt function the way it should. People also arent considering what kinds of decks links open up. Not as many as xyz did. But now we have a generic way to use monsters that summon other monsters somehow with a different level and arent tuners. They also give xyz and synchro decks optiona for that situation. Extra deck space is an issue, but some could argue thst having too many options in the extra deck was never a good idea in the first place. Rank4 was so strong for example because it could answer almost anything. Rank3 had gotten to that point as well.

I honestly and genuinely believe the biggest problem is if it ends up being that inatead of people worrying about spam of other things, now its just link spam.

Some decks really did becomme unplayable, less than I feel youve lised anf certainly not the majority of decks in the game (there are a lot, the game is big, and not just purely ones that can be named cleanly with a theme name) but yeah. But for some of them, people didnt play them because they were good anyway. And it indirectly helped any decks whose strategy wasnt focused on summoning multiple extra deck monsters a turn. And thats the key, multiples a turn. Your tehnically locked out by having one in the extra zone but monsters dont tend to live between turns in yugioh.

I also believe its konamis right and even duty to curate the game. Even if the strategies aren't "good", should summon spam decks exist at all? Konami apparently believes they should not. This is an issue magic faced and dealt with with split formats, but the face format of their game is he curated one. Yugioh doesnt have multiple formats but the point is this hard line decision isnt new or even bad inherently.

>> No.51792280

>>51792280
Literally 0 decks on release of xyz played none of them. I guess I shouldnt say literally, but its also the fact that not literally every deck on release has to play links either. When Xyz were released, being able to normal summon a 25 atk moster was huge game. Being able to turn 2 tengus into Utopia instead of leaving them because you had no tuner was big even after they didnt trigger off detach. Theres no reason for any deck that plays more than one of any of their monsters to not play xyz besides space issues.

Also, did you read whst you said? By definition something with less restrictions opens up more options.

I have no idea what these decks are doing that they have to do that to work. We know monsters have to be properly summoned from the extra deck to go into the extra zone, and we know via previous interactions (though it could change) that if something occupies a space, if its gone before the summon its used for resolves, you can use that space (so if you used spirit to summon azure eyes or xyz change, for example, that should still work).
