The new Booster Packs...

A new Booster Pack: Stardust Overdrive

This Booster Pack has only a few good cards. It has no staples or cards for Meta-Decks. The best cards in this set are the Secret Rares and here they are:

Guardian Eatos
- This card is a free 2500er spezial summon if you have no monster in your grave. You will have to play Dimensional Fissure or Macro Cosmos to summon it constantly. Every card that is a free spezial summon is a good card. If you want to play Dimensional Beat (Dimensional Fissure and Skill Drain) then he's your boss card.

Archlord Krystia
- This card fits very well in Lightsworns, because they play some fairy monsters in the main deck (Honest and Celestia, Lightsworn Angel). You only need to add Herold of the Orange Light to have more tricks available (and it helps versus Blackwing - Kalut the Moon Shadow or Honest). This card is good in the mirror match because you can build up your board and stop your opponent to do the same. And this card is also a free spezial summon which gets you a Honest back from the graveyard (Card Advantage = Good Yugioh). I want to have two of them, but i won't buy it because it's only playable in Lightsworn. If you have this card and a Lightlord deck, keep it!

Dark Simorgh
- I think this card is hyped and won't have a big impact to the metagame. This card was released in Yugioh Online 2, but it's not played there and they don't play it in Japan, so we won't see this card winning big tournaments. This card looks good on paper, but fails in action because there are no good WIND attribute monster (exclude Elemental Hero Stratos) and every big monster (like synchros) can kill it in battle or by his effect (exp.: Chaos Sorcerer, Judgement Dragon, Dark Armed Dragon). I won't spend money on this guy and sell him on ebay (you won't get more money than yet!).

Shutendoji
- This card is Card Advantage if you have a zombie-filled graveyard. It's like Pot of Avarice in the opening hand so i would only play one copy of this card if i run enough zombie monsters. The main problem with this card are the average attack and defense stats of it. 1500 ATK is very in this metagame and sometimes this card is like a waste summon. I would try to sell this card as long as players are thinking that this card is good =)

A new Booster Pack: Hidden Arsenal

This Booster has the same problem like Stardust Overdrive, there are only a few new and good cards in it. This are the cards you should look for:

Flamvell Magical
- This card is a level 4 tuner and has 1400 ATK so he won't fall in Bottomless Trap Hole. That's good because nearly every deck plays Bottomless Trap Hole at the moment and so you can summon Stardust Dragon in combination with Summoner Monk. You can get him out your deck with Flamvell Firedog if you destroy an opponent monster in battle (like a better Blackwing - Shura the Blue Flame) and summon the level 8 synchro monster you need atm. Then you can use this two cards together with Rekindling to spezial summon more level 8 synchro monsters or do a lot of damage. So this is the best Super Rare card in this pack!

Mist Wurm
- I think there are some situations where you really need this card, but it's hard to summon. You need a tuner and two non-tuner monster to reach level 9 so you can't play it in a lot of decks. It's only for Blackwing, Cat Synchro or Lightsworn. Don't pay for this card, it's not broken!

Ally of Justice Catastor
- This is the best available level 5 synchro monster in the TCG right now. It has a monster killing effect and it works against the popular Lightsworn deck. Junk Synchron and Blackwing - Blizzard the Far North are his best friends to summon him. This is a card where you can spend money on, but remember: you won't need more than two =)

Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier
- Here we go! This is my favourite synchro monster. Brioniac is a combo monster which can set up a lot of One-Turn-Kills and finish of EVERY synchro monster in the game. Works very good with Zombies and will have an impact on what synchro monster you're going to summon. You can't hide now behind your Stardust Dragon and some face-down spell/trap cards, because brioniac will kill your dragon. He's the best card in this set and has a fix spot in your future extra deck. Get him, play him and keep him!

Over and out!

I belive shutendoji is very well in a zombie/lightsworn because you can put plaguespreader zombie from RDP to top of your deck then mill it and use one more time is effect for wulf for example or necro gardna.

Auto-Links?

Do you use something like a script to link all the cards directly to the Wiki? I can't imagine you do this by hand xD

Re: Auto-Links?

I linked them by hand xD

I don't think that i can use a script for that, because the names on www.yugioh.wikia are not always the same.
ETCG can link their cards via script, because they have their own card database ;-)

Mist Valley Soldier

Hidden Arsenal almost completely obsoleted Rose, Warrior of Revenge. Not only did they release Flamvell Magician, which you mentioned, but they also released Mist Valley Soldier. Stronger, much better effect, winged-beast type so it works with Icarus Attack.

I'm pretty happy with Hidden Arsenal. I got my copy of Brionac and three Flamvell Magicans and Mist Valley Soldiers... I just need my Catastors and a Mist Wurm.

No title

Krystia belongs in her own deck, and her own deck only. Using it is Sworns is perfectly fine, just like how SalvoSworn and Twlight totally deserves their own decks while not being classified under 'Lightsworn'. She's powerful enough to be played in any deck maining Shining Angel in threes or even Nova Summoner.

And Simorgh IS played in Japan. Just not capable of topping anything for it's situational, slow, and gets raped by effects like a simple Gale Honest, Test Tiger, Brionac, Dark Armed, Judgement. Probably only complete lock you can get is with it, Angel 07 and Anti Spell Fragrance, and you still might die from battle after that. Wayy too much to setup.
