Silent Magician NEVER changed the meta in a wrong way lololololol
the card was never broken, and actually never became tier 0 or something alike; so I find it pretty funny when some random dude says it's Pay-to-win LMAO !
Someone else's deck? So who exactly invented those decks? U think no one could come up with a Fur Hire deck by themselves? The deck was too obvious in the box that u don't need to copy. Just put together those good Fur Hire monsters and u will end up with a deck 90% the same as with other players. Doesn't mean u copied it.
You can farm gems from events, character level ups, rewards for winning in ranked matches and battling duelist (lvl40) at the gate with a farm deck. If you're already playing Geargia, it can farm using winged dragon of Ra, as geargia have an easy time special summoning 3 monsters on the field and keeping control. Marik's skill adds their attack to Ra. With a little life gain you're above 9999 dmg.
I kinda agree with you, some guys just want to avoid their failure just by saying someting as deceitful as this game being 'expensive.
Honestly I don't get you people, this game was made by Konami to earn some cash, and all you do is complain, complain and complain when something is hard to obtain without cost. I am an F2P Player and I have some decent decks with the gems I have used so far,so if you are having troubles with actually winning in this game with all the free stuff Konami has already given you, It might be you who is the problem here.
