Duel reward

Its not like Balance was a perfect skill to begin w/. It was never a high chance to get exactly what you wanted/needed.
<< Anonymous
Anonymous 15days ago Reply
Actually, Balance did used to be a skill that gave you a 100% chance to draw what you want/need. Balanced used to be different (in the BETA): it used to balance your hand (2 monsters + 2 Spells/Traps). So, if your deck ran only 1 or 2 monsters or Spells/Traps, you'd always start with them.

Maybe a vanilla beatdown, just throw in your best vanilla monsters (jerry, dunames, etc.), OTC, E-Con, MW and you're pretty sure that the extra card will be useful. (Just an idea, never tried it even though I dropped the skill).
