    Already DLv max with valkyries.. But i think this is way easier than getting to KOG.by the way im the new player that asked about karakuri last week that ended up enjoying Valks since my account is accidentally deleted.

    Yeah i built the deck to have a semi competitive deck while being able to save gems for the next meta shift. Legend will be enough for me this season but KOG is very much welcome.

    Well, Konami releases support for fairy monsters very often so your deck will be competitive for a long time if you believe in it, invest in the best staples. Remember to save gems wisely.

    There are currently a few boxes with future proof cards. But you can also wait for the next one to be like that ig.

    well there's a reason it's called meta.

    Meta decks tends to be same-y because, well, look at what "meta" means.

    If you like originality don't bother with this game. Here you are just a ID number among other players who has spent X amount of money.

    It all comes down to expensive meta cards. Cheap cards that are good/decent will eventually be nerfed.

    I'd go for a third because it's so essential, like Simoon. But understand if you don't want such a heavy investment.

    Well, you could be one of few lucky people who got Karma Cut early anyway.

    I mean, it would be weird if literally everyone only got Karma Cut at the bottom of the packs, so some people have to get them early.

    ^People only remember their worst box opening moments. No matter how we see it, the cards would be easier to obtain here instead of being in TCG. You could buy 3 full box of pack without guarantee obtaining the cards you want.

    Exactly. It's not uncommon for people to only remember the openings that bother them the most.

    When they're lucky, they're not as bothered by it, thus they tend to forget about it quickly.

    Man, valkyries are quite underrated and surprisingly good. Worth a go at if you have the gems/money. Im not saying tier 1 or anything, but defo f2p friendly and competitive.

    i imagined a Trickstar ftk deck with Ojamas.
    step use ojamadication and normal summon any ojama while ojama country is face up
    step two normal summon Trickstar Lilybell (she'll be 2000 attack with direct attack ability)
    step three after lilybell attack, use trickstar buquet on return on lilybell in your hand, you can special summon it from hand cause she added your hand by eff

    shortly you have able to 2 direct attack with 2000 atk points monster

    Sphinx kinda doesn't count, it's only good if you already have Triamid deck to begin with.

    Otherwise it's useless.

    Valkyrie seems promising especially with the red resonator.But since im in a new account and F2P I wont be able to build it since it actually needs other box, red resonator and super team buddy force are nice tech. Balista squad and TTH/WLC are also viable. Their normal spell is also very powerful, if its a quick play or trap they are tier 1 lol.

    Why Red Resonator?

    IIRC the archetype doesn't really run Synchro, isn't it?
    << Anonymous
    Anonymous 21days ago Reply
    With red resonator they can. The archetype dont run extra deck monsters so they have a lot of space for synchro toolbox. Red resonator combos well with the level 1 (to special summon from deck) and the level 4 (to search). Red resonator with the level 1 you can get 1 turn of any generic synchro from lvl6-11, just to give an example

    The KCGP World leak was either fake news or they gave up on it. Its main characters are having most of their cards being released in boxes or rank tickets.

    Yep, characters don't absolutely need ace card anymore ever since we got Tristan. All we need is that there are cards related to their deck theme that can be used as level up reward and drop.

    An alternative solution is adding mark of the brick skills like they did with the 5D's chars.

    That mark of {X} skill for 5d is just advertisement that says.

    See how powerful these cards are when you use them, and you can have one for a very cheap price of 9000 gems.
    Not enough gems? Then how about the very cheap price of $30 for 30 packs?

    They could do the same for Valkyries, especially by the time this box isn't selling anymore.

    Just like Hey Trunade, Karma cut is goona be limited to 2. Can't see any point in owning 3 by opening this box

    New staples like Fiendish Chain and Karma Cut are indeed necessary if you join competitive tournament. But if your only goal is KOG, old staples like Floodgate and Canadia can still bring you there easily.

    Your ability to join competitive tournaments should solely depends on your personal skill level and not jpeg pictures that you own/bought with an electronic card.
