dwarf star dragon planeter seems useful to get COSMO
Really
I've schooled this dude so many times in the current meta that I don't really care if they nerf this is skill or not.
I MEAN, C'mon dudes... let the masked dude play, he can't be a loser his whole life... he needs to win from time to time.

Inb4 heavy starter gives you 3 blue eyes on your opening hand

Yeah. But beyond that and adding more cosmo, I'm just not sure what else can be done to make it more consistent without trick. I have defeated almost every player I ran into that used the beatdown version. That worries me.

Poor arkana, why do you guys want to get rid of him this soon. He's been in the meta for 1 month more or less lmao

I don't think it deserves a nerf, but if it is, you will still see Arkana. What about poor Seto Kaiba? Blue-eyes are his cards and they don't even work the best with him. He should have a better skill for it like advent of the blue-eyes from the duelist chronicles event.

Whatever I play blue eyes as KAIBA !

(like a real man bro)

not many do that really, they just expect to get easy wins. But the version of the BEWD deck with Arkana + Offerings was really entertaining and fun to play (and also very competitive)

lol. This skill is not that OP compared to Balance (which outright fix 3 of the 4 cards in your hand), or Cyber Style pre-nerf (which allows you to use the Proto Cybers as free monsters for anything you want).

Your joking! Your guaranteed cosmo brain. Cyber style have to take life points to activate. Balance only give you a mix of your starting hand. But no guarantees on both skills. This skills guarantees cosmo brain. No wait for life points damage or a maybe good balance hand. You’re a troll.

For Pre-Cyber style you just needed 1 proto for decks like U.A.s and vampires to work. And you didn't need to lose LPs from battle, you could just use something like galaxy cyclone to clear one spell/trap your OP had and you were good to use Cyber Style.

And one guaranteed cosmo brain wasn't even enough for blue-eyes.

Only noobs complained about this skill.

And only noobs complain about its current nerf, because it will take place like... 6 DAMN MONTHS after the Blue-Eyes deck was released. Wow, some complains make me realize only the dumbest people in the work use this comment section, no wonder why only the smart ones play without writing anything.

If you'd spend more time in this site, you'd new that there are people who ask certain questions and there are others who do not answer anything but just insult players. Maybe that's what he's talking about besides the fact of complaining about any random nerf

Accept this nerf was absolutely retarded and made it an almost terrible skill to build a deck around

Perhaps if the skill was “if you go first” rather then “on your first turn” but to be frank this nerf pretty much gives your opponent free turns if you go second and can dick around and leaves a dead card in your hand for a turn it’s awfully overkill

I think this skill is still viable with the current dark magician support

So the only nerf to this skill is that you now have to stall for one turn before doing the usual combo with Blue-Eyes stuff.

Really, Konami?

If your reason is "Arkana should use Dark Magician", then what you should do is making the skill requires the deck to run a DARK Spellcaster-Type NORMAL monster.....or make it so that the skill requires the deck to have 3 DARK Spellcaster monsters with different names, something that only DM decks can do.

We're sorry that your favorite Blue Eyes got hit by the nerf bat. Don't worry, we will buff all decks that will give us more money

Just means Kaiba maybe used more than Arkana. Still might use this skill for a version of Buster Fusion though.

Now where are those guys who were so sure this Skill won't get nerfed? XD

RIP this skill. They about to make it to where you can’t special summon your first turn.

Technically you can still do Dark Magician + Ancient Rules Combo. You just can't special summon EFFECT monsters on your first turn. You can only set them normally instead.

All this does is negate Cosmo Brain from being summoned on your first turn unless you have a stall plan for your next turn.
