YCS Utrecht is the first big European event of 2020. We would like to take the chance and look back to 2019 and asked Duelists here in Utrecht what they think which card defined 2019 the most. Which card had the biggest impact an the metagame? Read on the see all the answers!

 


Michael & Sandro

 


Which was the most format defining card in 2019?
Michael: I cannot decide on a single card, so I will go with three cards: Pot of Extravagance, Evenly Matched and Impermanence. Impermance, because it’s basically the only non-negatable handtrap. Extravagance made a lot of backrow Decks available again like Altergeist and Subterror and Evenly Matched is the single card to out huge boards.

Which was the most format defining card in 2019?
Sandro: I guess it was Engage. The card was so strong, that it was splashed into almost any other Deck and I was really happy to see it go on the latest Forbidden & Limited List.

 


Daniel

 


Which was the most format defining card in 2019?
Daniel: Engage! Even when Striker wasn’t the best Deck, the pure existence of the card made people build their Decks around it. For example, Ash Blossom was very popular in the last format, now it fell of the radar simply due to the fact that Engage is not around anymore.

 


Ben & Florian

 


Which was the most format defining card in 2019?
Florian: Engage – it’s the one single card that defined the whole year 2019. The card searches Hornet Drones from the Deck, which in itself is a Link 2 monster in non-striker Decks. If played correctly Engage lets you draw an additional card. So, it’s basically Reinforcement and Upstart in a single card!

Which was the most format defining card in 2019?
Ben: Nibiru – it changed the way the game is played. You either have to play around it or have a follow up later, in case your opponent drops it. Suddenly, you could not special Summon as much monsters as you wanted to. That was a big change to the game!
