Planning Ahead (feat. The Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Database)

[p]Once YCS Bochum 2013 comes to an end Duelists will be preparing for their National Championships and other World Championship Qualifiers (as well as YCS Lille). All of these events will take place using the new Forbidden & Limited Cards List which was revealed earlier this week. Let’s take a look at how to prepare for a new format, with a new tool that was released late last year.[/p]


[br][div]Your first port of call should be the updated Forbidden & Limited Cards List, which you can find at this link. Watch out for and make note of any changes, such as cards that are newly Forbidden, cards that are now Unlimited etc.

Next you’ll want to look at your own Deck and see how the list affects the cards you’re using. If you’re playing Wind-Ups for example you’ll have to remove 2 copies of [w mag] and every [w maity] and [sangan] you were using.[/div]

[br][div]More often than not, you’ll want to “replace” the cards that you removed with those that have similar stats or effects. The Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Database can help out with that, as it allows you to filter through every card in the TCG to find what you’re looking for.

Let’s say you want to use something to replace [sangan] for example. Although [sangan]’[s] searching effect is rather unique, its stats are not; and the card was commonly used as a monster that you Special Summoned with [tgu]’[s] effect.

[tgu] lets you Summon a Level 3 Fiend-Type monster from your Deck, which is commonly used as an Xyz Material. By using the Database you can search for all the Level 3 Fiend-Types in existence and help you find cards that you may be interested in using.[/div]
[br]

[div]You can also use the Database in other ways as well, such as looking for cards with a specific wording. You can combine search filters as well, so if you want a FIRE Attribute monster that inflicts what’s commonly referred to as “Burn Damage”, you can type the word “inflict” into the search box and search by Card Text (result here for those curious).

You can also check up on all the cards that were released in a specific booster set, and preview each card individually if you wish.

A big part of adjusting a Deck for a new Forbidden & Limited cards List, or even making a new Deck in general, is knowing what cards are out there that you can potentially make the most of. The Database will help out with that immensely, putting the entire back catalogue of Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards at your fingertips.[/div]
