The skills below will be updated!

Date of Skill Rebalancing2017 Nov 6

Creator

CurrentCan be used if your Life Points drop below 2000. In the Draw Phase, instead of doing a normal draw, a powerful card, from outside of your Deck, is added to your hand. This skill can only be used once per Duel.
UpdateThe skill detail text will not be change, but the cards you can add to your hand by using the skill will become stronger.

Balance

CurrentYour starting hand will reflect the card balance of your deck.
UpdateThe skill detail text will not change, but your starting hand will no longer be entirely predetermined by the number of each type of card you have in your Deck.

Harpies' Hunting Ground

Current

Begin Duel with the Field Spell Harpies' Hunting Ground activated.

Update

Begin the Duel with the Field Spell "Harpies' Hunting Ground" on the top of your deck.

Note

The skill has to be used with a specific set of cards to be effective, and will be altered in a way that adds more versatility to how it can be used.

Parasite Infestation

Current

After starting hands are dealt, a random number of "Parasite Paracide" cards are added to opponent's Deck, Face up.

Update

After starting hands are dealt, 1 or 2 "Parasite Paracide" cards are added to your opponent's deck face up.

Note

The fact that Weevil only added 2 "Parasite Paracide" to Joey's deck in manga, the number of "Parasite Paracide" will be decreased to 2.

Fairy's Smile

Current

If you normal draw a Fairy-Type monster card during the Draw Phase, the card is shown to the opponent and you recover 500 Life Points.

Update

If you normal draw a Fairy-Type monster card during the Draw Phase, the card is shown to the opponent and you recover 1000 Life Points.

Note

Recovering 1000LP is a huge difference in a duel, with this update, Fairies might be given a chance in the meta.

Three-Star Demotion

Current

Can be used by paying 2000 Life Points. Until the End Phase, reduce the Level of all monsters in your hand by 3. This skill can only be used once per turn.

Update

Can be used by paying 3000 Life Points. Until the End Phase, reduce the Level of all monsters in your hand by 3. This skill can only be used once per turn.

Note

Paying 2000LP is too low for summoning top-level monsters. Once implemented the numbers of Paradox Brother' in the meta might be reduced.

Previous update

Switcheroo

Previously

Return 1 card in your hand to your Deck and draw another. This skill can only be used once per turn and twice per Duel.

Current

Can be used each time your Life Points decrease by 1000. Return 1 card in your hand to your Deck and draw another. This skill can only be used once per turn and twice per Duel.

Note

With no increase to how many times you can use it, adding a LP requirement to using the skill makes it quite a big nerf. This will mean that Keith players will not be able to use the skill early in the duel. Switching Thunder Dragons will not be able to be used early, but Venus decks might be unaffected.

3SD seems very difficult to use after update. It require to pay 3000LP to summon, but only activate after LP<1000??! How can it activate if you have no other cards on hand?? This is very unfair to users equip with 3SD.

Small typo on each the Bastion skills, " rerturn it to your hand"
TrialnError
Looks like Growler users will be dominated by OTKs now. Imagine your opponent floods the field with high attack and your first turn the best you can do is Ancient Gear Soldier, which means your susceptible to Traps and Spells or you'll be eaten alive going against a decent Atk card.

It's a little nerf. Because when I use it, I try to learn the place of the cards + if the card I want is the next one I'll normally draw, I pick anoither one.

Big big nerf on Mind Scan. I'm very happy with it. Even though I have this skill, I don't want to use it. It's literally a cheat.

you are happy but other ca mind scan pussies are not, they need mind scan at the start to feel secure about whether you have econ or not, now that it is nerfed, they are afraid and crying in bed every night, and when they play pvp their hands get sweaty and shake with fear,lol

Right!? I used it a few times when I first got it, the immediately switched to life boost because it felt so dirty

So... Instead of wasting time nerfing skills that were never part of the game to begin with, when is the skill free mode goinh to be added?
