Friday Roundup: June 8th



Here's a brief look at some of the most popular stories from around the Yugiweb this week. You can find all the links of note on The Irish Duelist's Twitter page, which is also shown in the live ticker on the right-hand side of this page.


Night Beam and Mystical Space Typhoon (Konami)

"Mystical Space Typhoon is one of the most popular Spell Cards of all time. It’s simple, Chainable, and it’s good at what it does. By clearing the way for your biggest moves, it gives you the freedom to push for the win, ensuring that your opponent’s face-downs won’t stop you when it’s time to take your shot. It’s a classic.

But now, Galactic Overlord has brought us an alternative: a deceptively similar Spell called Night Beam. While Night Beam and Mystical Space Typhoon may look a lot alike, they’re two very different cards, with very different uses."


Rescue Rabbit and the Art of the Grind Game (ARG)

"Whiling scrolling through Facebook over the course of the last couple days, I have seen numerous players (some of which are amongst the best the game has ever seen) discredit Dino-Rabbit because of the need to draw Rescue Rabbit. And while I don’t think there is any denying that the games you do draw Rescue Rabbit are leaps and bounds easier than the games you do not – I think there is a misconception here. Dino-Rabbit is a little bit more than a one-trick pony and I feel like the misunderstanding is because there is a gap in knowing how to morph your play style and cater to the Rabbit-less cards you draw."

Attacking the Meta - Tribute in Style! (TCGPlayer)

"With cards like Hieratic Dragon King of Atum, Gaia Dragon, the Thunder Charger, Draconnection, Trial and Tribulation, and an entirely new Dragon archetype, Dragon duelists get many new toys to tinker with. Chaos Dragons has easily been the most talked-about Dragon deck, but this week I'd like to discuss a strategy that almost got to the top cut. The archetype that brings back tributing in a brand new way, Hieratics!"
