Top Tech Cards at YCS Madrid

After having a walk around the venue this morning it’s clear to see that on top of having a variety of Decks in the mix today there are also a lot of tech cards floating around that individual Duelists are hoping will give them the edge against the competition. Let’s take a look at a selection of the cards people have been telling me about this morning.

First up is [sup squad]. This has been used mainly in Burning Abyss builds to supplement the monster destruction effects with an extra draw meaning that you can overwhelm your opponent by having far more cards – and therefore options – than they do. This is a really useful continuous Spell at the moment as most players refuse to use their [mst] on anything other than a [vane] or other Trap that would completely shut them out of the game.

Next we have [2 cyc]. This attempts to counter the above point of having to save your [mst]s to use on Trap cards that will make you completely lose the game. Examples of this at the moment are [vane], [sim] and [soul drain]. Having the extra remove allows you to play [2 cyc] in response to your [shd fus] after your opponent has chained one of those cards.

[karma] hasn’t seen play in a while but now allows you to get rid of pesky cards such as [sat den] which will continue to haunt you unless you banish them completely. Discarding cards from your hand doesn’t seem like a huge issue at the moment – hence the rise in popularity of [pwwb] – so this is a small price to pay to completely destroy your opponent’s strategy.

Lastly we’ve got [burst rebirth]. This is only really good in Shaddoll but can strengthen their strategy. It seems like a large price to pay but if you can get a [shd beast] back in the End Phase and then flip it on your turn you’re up and rolling with so much momentum it will be extremely difficult for your opponent to counter.

There are lots of tech cards flying around today – some that get an honourary mention include [raiza] and [poly]. With so many options there is sure to be a great variety of games at this tournament so prepare for a weekend of great Dueling action!
