Huhhh?? Really!! dont included aroma in your trash deck. I play aroma with draw sense spell trap. Even without proper skill hardly bricks dumbass. Every 7 duels 1 time bricks

Does this really hurt aroma? I mean if you open with rosemary you just activate gardening/garden, set traps, normal summon and that's all

Actually it benefits rosemary, even if you gain lp she won't switch herself to defense, oh an jazmine extra summon effect doesn't activate, it is a continuous effect

Just waiting for Konami to straight-up delete Restart and Balance from the game. They've nerfed those two abilities so many times over the years that it probably won't be long until both skills are completely unusable. Even then, they'll probably find some reason to nerf them further. Not saying this due to preference for any deck. I just think it's silly how often these two generic skills keep getting nerfed.

Am I nuts or is the rephrase of Cubic Seeds completely inexplicable? Like, the ability literally already stopped you from using any non-cubic cards, right?

Yeah, now you can use up to 6 spell and trap which is not cubic card

Gamea got the updated version slightly wrong in the above article.

"that contain no cards other than Cubic cards" should have been "that contains no monsters other than Cubic monsters" now.

The total restriction now only applies to monsters, because of the last part:

"In addition, the number of Spell/Trap Cards that are not Cubic cards must be 6 or lower."

The last part means you can run non-Cubic spell/trap cards, you just cannot exceed 6 cards on those.

Useless nerf of trap layer, heavy starter and restart.

Onomatopia, territory of sharks, level dublication left untouched.

Dear customer,

As a developer it is a must for us to develop deep understanding inside and outside the game. We do take careful planning about the impact of the gaming enviroment in the future, those skills will help a lot in our newly released box. Don't worry we will do update and rebalancing of the skills and cards as soon as the decks are outdated in the future.

Thank you for playing Duel Li

Shadow Game is still somewhat usable at least. Look what they did to Restart lol.

I absolutely hate Shadow Game stall deck and wants to break the phone of everyone running the deck, so it says something regarding Restart when even I say at least Shadow Game is still alive.

I don't know why the heck they add "extra deck does not count" on Master of Destiny.

Sounds useless, since nobody ever actually use the extra deck when running Desperado deck. Also I don't think we even have ANY extra deck monster that makes use of coin flips.

Really, the last bit should have been "You cannot activate Set cards during the turn you use this Skill". So no Karma Cut or Super Buddy on the same turn.

Balance is one thing since we pretty much saw it coming. But dang, what did the other consistency skills do to deserve this? It's not like they were making a big impact. I can't even remember the last time I saw anyone use Heavy Starter or Restart as it is. Guess they want us all roughly in the same boat now.

how bad is the change in the ability to restart???

Basically, if you have to play 7 traps and 7 spells, you can already use balance and it will give you a more consistent hand than restart without the loss of the extra card drawing next turn

So this time they nerfed everything except Onomatoplay that is the most unfair skill in the game, no other deck can choose 2 cards of their hand and it hasn't any lp or turn number restriction. Good job Konami!

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.
