Profile Description

Though Declan is only 16 years old, this professional Duelist has been running Leo Corporation and the Leo Institute of Dueling (LID) as their president. As one of the select few who know about the existence of other dimensions, he forms the Lancers to protect this world from interdimensional invaders. He not only uses powerful Fiend-Type D/D and D/D/D monsters in his deck, he may be the only Duelist who has mastered four summoning methods: Fusion, Synchro, Xyz and Pendulum.

Declan/Reiji is far more calculating and combo-tastic in his duels compared to Kaiba/Ryo/Jack/Kaito.

You are right. In reality, you are more important than Akaba and any other anime characters.
When I said that, the context was fiction world, specifically Arc V. So, Declan is obviously more important than you, me and other living beings.

Let’s hope we get Shay as a first unlockable character in the future.

Why is he first? That makes little sense in terms of both the show pacing and how Sora is a more prominent character
I wouldn't complain, but it doesn't seem logical

Shouldn't Shun/Shay come after Yuto instead?

Why do you think Shay will be first? By all accounts Declan is the most likely next character for Arc-V both in terms of game data that I have seen and the plotline of Arc-V. After him the next Arc-V character will probably be Sora, Shay, or Yuto.

Rival isn’t useless for once, and is one of, if not the strongest character in the show.

The cost of a pendulum summon will be the one S/T zone left... Too expensive in my opinion.

It's fair for me. Knowing konami's greed at some point they'll start to release those pendulum decks that can summon 5 monsters at the same time, thx good we only have 3 zones but it's still too much

Summon 5 monsters at the same time?
Such good cards are coming? I'm definitely buying 3 copies of those. Thank you Konami for the anti-equalizer I have been waiting for.

Time to make F2P lowly again.

Too bad his crazy combo of summoning a Fusion, Synchro, and Xyz in 1 turn with the help of his Pendulums, cannot be done in DL since it requires 4 monster zones.

Unless....Konami give him a skill that allows us to replicate it somehow.

Konami will give Arc-V characters to use cards in the pendulum zone to be use as materials for fusion, synchro ans Xyz plays lol.

Or maybe a skill like "if you control Caesar and Alexander you summon Ghengis from your extra deck, or if you control Ghengis and Caesar you summon Alexander from your extra deck, and so on"

.....You still need to have Sanga, Suijin, and Kazejin in your hand first.

Plus having the Pendulums set.

Plus having Gate Guardian in your hand as well.
<< Anonymous(Ivankov)
@OP Reply
Gate Guardian cannot be Special Summoned except by its own effect XD

So like the above anon says, you must Pendulum Summon the trio instead, which means you need a lot of cards anyway.

IMO for the salery view I would think that the Xyz do not sale that good as Konami expected and now they move to pendulum to boost there sales.

No. They have been doing a new world every year. Come September it is time for a new one and Arc-V is next.

Yeah, it has nothing to do with sales, it's just how their schedule is (1 new world every year)
Marvin
They should have changed the order and give us links and the extra monster zone before pendulums, they were much more adapted to this game then pendulums
<< Anonymous(Marvin)
Candend Reply
But how they will explain this? So far konami introduced extra deck mechanic as accurate as the anime. This game is based on manga, you know? Even as the developer of the game, you still look at the original source before you make a final decision.

I would agree if we had 5 zones, but seeing as we have only 3, pendulums by default are strictly worse out the gate, whereas other methods still have their own advantages
