The new cards (anti-raigeki and gryphon wing) remind me that they wanted to change the creator skill in March. That happened? If so, did anyone test it? Or was it just speculation?

I did predict either Cyber Style or Overflow should get nerfed. But I didn't expect Konami nerfed both at the same time. Funny that tier 3 deck got hit harder than Shiranui and DM.

At very least i want more red eyes fusion monster.
Too bad we wont see dragun of red eyes unless they do something about the burn effect damage. They limit a trap card that cant be searched, afterall because it has a huge burn damage.

Most red eyes card have burn effect.

Guess that's what preventing them from getting the love they deserve.

Since Konami updated Ultimate Dragon skill that way.
I hope that Fusionmorph : Red Eyes would be as well.
Making it morph into Black Comet & Archfiend BSD instead.

They nerfed Cyber Style further lol. The skill now has longer text than some cards in the game.

At this point they really should just completely change the skill into "Add 1 Cyber Dragon into your deck at the start of the duel."


Also, they nerfed Draw Sense Spell/Trap???? Why????

Draw sense was nerfed due to block dragon decks only running grass as the only spell.

......so even in DL they still refuse to hit Block Dragon? Lol

Why nerf Life Cost 0? Only because of Cyber-Stein OTK? Come on, not a deck that is used too much or way too op. Cyber Style now completely pointless.

Transcendent crystal skull change effectively kills my rainbow dragon otk deck, I know they didn’t nerf it for that reason but it’s a bummer that it turned a barely competitive deck into a bigger joke

Yeah, would have been better if they did add a restriction that only punishes non-CB decks.
