The Glory of Naturia

Naturia is one of the many exciting families of monsters you can find in Hidden Arsenal 2 and Duelist Revolution. The Naturia Deck is mainly made up of EARTH monsters that can shut down various parts of your opponent’s strategies by negating the effects of your opponents Monsters, Spells and Traps or preventing them from activating them altogether. Some of them even reward you for the plays your opponent makes.

Quicker, Draw-er, Dandywarrior!

Back in April, the winning Deck at the biggest Yu-Gi-Oh! Tournament of all time was Quickdraw Dandywarrior. Ever since, it’s been a popular choice among Duelists. While some Duelists have moved on to X-Sabers and Infernities, 2 exciting and powerful Decks boosted by cards in The Shining Darkness, there are several new cards that make Quickdraw Dandywarrior Decks stronger than ever as well. Today we’re going to look at these cards, and how they can increase the power of your Deck.

How to take on Infernities

The Shining Darkness brought about one of the strongest Decks we’ve seen in a long time. Infernities have propelled Duelists to victory in several World Championship Qualifiers, as well as last month’s Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series in Chicago, and is a very difficult Deck to defeat. However, with the right cards and a solid plan of action, you can give yourself the edge against Infernity Decks.

Infernities are known for doing 3 things very well; they fill up the Graveyard with everything they need, Special Summon several monsters at once, and end Duels very quickly either by attacking for over 8000 Life Points at once, or by making sure you can’t make a comeback thanks to Infernity Barrier. The best way to tackle this almost unbeatable Deck is to have cards that can stop each part of their big combo, and play them at just the right time.
