This box is basically Blackstorm Rising 2.0 , which means it contains no tier 1 deck. Both Fire Fist UR are just like Bora The Spear and Black Whirlwind, which are too overrated to be a UR. Vice Dragon is just a Dragon version of Earth Armor Ninja. Living Fossil is absolute garbage. Nephthys is slow compared to Maximus and Reactor Dragon. Laval is meh unless Konami release more support. Putting Red Dragon Archfiend in this box is Konami's strategy to make people think this is a good box
At least Blackstorm Rising has Breaker The Magical Warrior, which is a great tech that fits in any deck. Absolute Inferno has Dark Bribe, Skill Prisoner and Bad Aim but those cards will only be good as side-deck tournament, not for your ranked duel deck
Not like Stein's the only card whose status differs between Duel Links and the TCG/OCG (Grass and Gold Sarcophagus for instance.) Different cards are stronger in different formats, and for different reasons. Pointing out a card's status in one has no bearing on what is warranted in another.
Rekindling would be DUMBER here than in the TCG. Sure, the raw combo potential is lower because we only have 3 monster zones. But Summoning 3 2000+ beatsticks (especially the two Hazy Flames) is obviously not acceptable.
