    Leakers weren’t 100%. So now people are allowed to be skeptical of their premature “leaks” when an OP card is shown.

    Op is right. No reason to get a big head over another shady person’s “leaks”. If we see a card that seems too powerful for DL, then we’re allowed to be skeptical if Komoney would actually release a unhealthy card into their game. It’s happened before.

    For individual cards, yea, we have a reason to be skeptic now.

    I will have to pass! I'm definitely not interested in a quite stupid dummies box! I will be waiting for Arc V release, and I hope Konami release Guiding Ariadne for my counter fairies!!! That lovely fairy removes LP and discarding cost payment from all counter traps and that's quite fantastic! Can't wait!

    I'm not into the puppets either. And the hero cards aren't cool ones. The fairies sound better and I am also waiting for Arc-V for more destiny heroes, amazoness, lunalights, and the stuffed animal deck from Sora.

    People still hoping for Bottomless Traphole? Bunch of noobs.

    Hope we never get bottomless. But based on current releases I believe konami will give it too. Imo, when we see book of moon in limited list or treacherous getting banned, then you will know that bottomless is about to come in a selection box. Marketing strategies...

    Book of Moon will never be limited at all. A simple flip down card is not broken compared to the commonly hated wall of disruption.

    It’s Conspiracy time. Is Konami is releasing dark machines again to secretly bring back desperado meta? I don’t want that 🔥er in the meta…

    I own them in physical format. I also tested the deck with 3 copies of orbital in ygo omega and it's garbage

    You must test them in duel links.

    Cards that are good in tcg aren't always good in dl, and vice-versa.

    As I said I tested it in ygo omega too.

    If you don't know what it is: it's a yugioh simulator where you can also use the speed duel format with the duel links current card pool, people test decks there once they know x cards are coming to duel links.

    The card was a -1 most of the times it usually got c cycloned or the monster it was equipped to got hit by backrow before I could use the effect

    Gamea, I don't know where the name "Mechanic Souls" comes from, but the box's name has been revealed to be "Darkness Gimmick"
