Hot New Top
Bonz needs a new skill, like "Ghostrick Main 2". If your deck has more than 5 "Ghostrick" cards, you are able to go to Main Phase 2 after the Battle Phase.

Freaking DL and no M2 = death of Ghostrick.

I dunno if you're just joking or legitimately dumb. There is no main phase 2 in duel links. So why would there be a skill for one??

he mean only bonz can go phase 2 with that skill
What da hell? Who asked to have bonz as an unlockable character? He isnt even playable in many yugioh games and is everything except "legendary". Paradox Brothers were one thing but BONZ? Why no salomon tristan duke devlin or rebecca hawkins? Atleast theyre memorable compared to him

I think it's more for completeness in the Duelist Kingdom event, actually. (Note that his placement in the second run of it was a blank space in the first.) We probably got Arkana for the same reason. (Though they also put Strings and possessed Joey in there despite them not being playable, so eh.) Honestly, though, more characters the better.

At least Bonz didn't give birth to a lot of annoying decks able to overwhelm their seasons' meta like Paradox Brothers and their 3 Star Demotion skill did. I still have bad memories of the 3SD Dark Magician deck with 3 CVs, the Toon Barrel Dragon deck, the past Kc Cup Ninja deck...
add grit to the list

Am i the only one who's lucky with his UR and SR card Drops but never gets a skill drop on Bonz?

Im on the opposite situation, farmed him using Hazy Aroma startegy, got almost all Mai's drop skill except Harpies' Last Will. But I had all Bonz's drop cards tho, except Ryu and 3rd Witch

I don't know about others but I wasn't looking forward to this because Bonz is lame and his rewards are too. However, he has been very generous with dropping skills for other characters.

That's great. Only good skill I have got that I wanted was 3SD. Otherwise I got heavy starter, draw sense water, restart and draw sense high level for Kaiba. Draw sense light, lp boost both types, draw sense earth and draw sense spell trap for odion. Draw sense wind, hhg and lp boost for Mai. I wasn't farming but just levelling up a few characters. Now trying Yami to see if I can get destiny draw.

Great! I also got Restart for Kaiba during the Yami Marik event. I'm just glad that they give gems for the skills you already have if you get them again. I've lost count of how many times Aster got the life point boost B skill. XD

This LD is really funny, spend 2k keys on gate farming lvl. 40 = 0 skills dropped. Instead, I got 5 skills so far from lvl. 20 random LD on street.
For dawn of the brains what does NPC only mean?

It means only the Bonz NPC, the one you duel on your Duel World, can have the skill. Players like us can't have it.
Trying so hard to make A Ghostrick meta deck but it heavily relies on Astral and Spirit Barrier with Destiny Draw.

Sucks that you can't even use Bonz effectively with his own drops. Man I hate this current meta. Even Zombie World is defenseless against a turn 2 Dakini

Baby Sarah, when will you come visit me again? I still remember your last visit and I'm longing for you ever since. Please come visit me again baby girl. XOXO your sugardaddy
Loving his skill "straight to the grave". Gives his zombie monsters an added boost. LV 8 so far playing as him since unlocking him yesterday.

Why it would be the worst?

We have the Rex one that only worth for Dinos, this one we can use Dino, Zombie and Rock. And we have a lot of good Zombie monsters.

Damn you're rude. Ffs was the "idiot and dumbass" comments necessary? People never heard of correcting others without being an ass. Also in the first sentence, it's "you're" not "your".
