Duel Links Breaking News
36th Mini Box: Idea of Armageddon
update 19/11/2018


Zane Truesdale (Ryo Marufuji in JP) is the top duelist of Duel Academy, being one of the few people who were able to beat Jaden in a duel, as well as the rival of Jaden Yuki in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX. Later in the anime/manga, after experiencing several losses and losing hope, he participated in an underground duel where he is then forced to change his ways and eventually becomes "Dark Zane", becoming more aggressive and unforgiving with his playstyle.

Zane is playable at Victory Carnival 2018

The Event was held on July 15 in Tokyo Japan and July 22 in Osaka Japan. Players will get to experience playing Duel Links in a large touch screen!

Zane Truesdale's Deck

During Jump Victory Carnival 2018, Zane Truesdale was included as a playable character for people who went to the event and tried Duel Links section. Here, Zane used a fusion based Cyber Dragon deck with Classic Cyber Dragon cards combined with more modern support. Particularly we saw cards such as Cyber Dragon, Cyber Dragon Core, Evolution Burst, Power Bond, Power Wall, Cyber End Dragon, and Cyber Twin Dragon which are still unavailable to Duel Links players as of now. This may suggest that they will soon be added to Duel Links, which has long been sought after by the community. This also may also suggest that Zane Truesdale himself will soon be playable and come with support focused around Cyber Dragons and not Cyber Dark Dragons.

Cyber Dragons

His signature card is Cyber Dragon, which is an archetype consisting of mostly light attribute monsters. Cyber Dragon shares many similarities to Blue-Eyes White Dragon, with the exception that it is not a normal monster. After his personality transformation later in the series, Zane uses a different deck. While still focusing on Cyber Dragons, they mostly consists of their darkened version.

If you really have language issue, you would've stated since the start that you weren't sure if it's the right word. That's what everyone do. And that's why I think you are making this up. Your high-and-mighty attitude doesn't help things either, it ends up feeling as if you're desperately trying to "win" the conversation.

shorthand for "in my opinion".
i have that terrible feeling that when Zane become unlockable, Cyber dragon will become tier 0. and the people who will complain that the deck is the new 🔥 are gonna be the same people who wanted zane.
<< Anonymous(Read me pls)

Things that top tier must have:
1. Speed
2. Backrow removal
3. Effect negation
4. Monster removal
While Cyber Dragon is just beatdown deck that relies on high stats they can't deal backrow or even effect monster

I'm sure he got tired of owning you 0-7 is sooooo bad
So basically, Crowler gets an unlock event right away, but the hot GX guys (Jesse and Zane) have to roam first. I hope that this isn't a pattern that GX is going to continue to follow... (I apologize to anyone who doesn't agree with me about Crowler not being hot).

Like what they have been doing with the Mariks? But at least Zane is going to be roaming soon, so that means that they can hopefully get him out faster.

Cyber twin is not broken at all. It is fine to go at 3 IMO. The only broken cyber dragon fusion is probably chimeratech rampage dragon.

Do you guys know by any chance if Duel Links is going to be released for Nintendo Switch ? Because it would be awesome to play it in portable console as well !
<< Anonymous
Anonymous Reply
It's also the most successful console of 2017, and the sales will keep increasing. Reminder that Pokemon, which is Nintendo's biggest weapon to increase console sales, is releasing a new core series game in 2019. (No, I'm not talking about Let's Go.)

If that is failure, then I bet Playstation and XBox want some failure too lmao

*a new core series game for Switch, I mean
tbh i dont see his deck being meta changing at all his cards revolve around traps and spells nand their effects get stopped by floodgate and econs and super rush all plat and above have those cards...i will farm him but probably on for some other spell and traps. his deck losses if you dont draw the trap none of his monsters can be summonened without it.

This website seems to have more information.

Apparently Zane is gonna be playable at some convention called Jump Victory Carnival 2018 in Japan so that probably means we're gonna get him as playable soon.

„Last summer, Konami and Shueisha hyped up Yami Marik in a similar fashion, so Zane is likely intended for players for the very near future.”

Do you have any pictures of that leaked conversation with Zane you mentioned here?
Hoping they release the original version of Zane (Obelisk Blue) who will actually have Cyber Dragon cards and the level 45 reward card is Overload Fusion.

I don't usually complain but this is so bad.

Oh, I know Konami is afraid of Jinzo. Which is stupid because there are plenty of ways to 🔥 him. And it's not like Horus killed spells. I imagine they would only give one as Espa's signature card. With Marik, they may possibly be afraid of Necrovalley (also stupid to be afraid of). Zane hasn't been around THAT long yet, so it might not be fear of his Cyber Dragons on Konami's part for him.

Also Obelisk which is unaffected by spells and traps is kept fpr too long. They gave us Ra and i have never seen anybody using that card in the game. They should add more popular and classic cards even as limited cards. Besides no card is unbeatable.
<< Anonymous

Exactly. Obelisk is the card version of Zane, Espa, and Marik Ishtar. You know it is there, but Konami is just fidgeting around with worry about it being too powerful. I think that some people might use the gods in pvp, but I only use them to farm. And if everything that is too powerful gets released, what difference does it make anyway? Konami is just biding their time to the inevitable.

I have it. But you're right about barely use. It's an awesome card, just not my kind of choice rn...
You guys are upset because you didn't get Cyber Dragon and Power Bond lol. I understand as I'm a Hero/Judai fan, waiting for Grand Mole, Stratos and E-Call to be released, but you have to understand they're broken cards and can be splashed on almost any deck. Let's have some patience here.

Broken cards? What about Fur hires? Mask Change? The game has plenty of broken cards, these arguments are not valid anymore.

Yes, they're leaving unsupported most of the characters' archetypes to the point of not being able to compete in the meta. It's not only E HEROes and Cyber Dragons that are suffering with this burden: Blue-Eyes, Cyberdarks, Roids, Armed Dragon, ABC-XYZ Unions...

As for Blue-Eyes, knowing their boner for DM, we'll get the "with Eyes of Blue" Tuners and the Synchros when 5Ds world arrives.
