The following post will be a scenario that took place in-game, followed by a suggestion for improving the game's mechanics.

Suppose I have Tytannial, Princess of Camellias, and Divine Wrath set on my field. My opponent has Subterror Behemoth Umastryx set on their field, with Subterror Nemesis Warrior in their graveyard. On my turn, I attack Umastryx with Tytannial. Proceeding to Dmg Step, Umastryx is flipped face-up, allowing Umastryx and Warrior to activate their effects at *roughly* the same time (I say *roughly* because the game decides that Umastryx begins the chain by being flipped face-up first, and then Warrior can proc its effect during the same substep of the Dmg Step; my opponent isn't choosing which activates first).
My intention would be to activate either Tytannial or Divine Wrath after Umastryx activates its effect, yet game does not allow this based on how the game handles the rule of simultaneous (trigger) effects activating.
The game currently does not allow players to decide the order that simultaneous effects activate. This makes it so both the turn player and the opponent can't control which effect procs first, and which effect can be responded to by the opposing player when priority passes.

This problem can *easily* be fixed by adding a mechanic to the game, not too dissimilar from what already exists. For all cards that activate simultaneously, the player should see a prompt that allows them to select the order of their chain that's built (i.e. in the above example, my opponent would see both Umastryx and Warrior in the prompt, and can choose the order that the chain is built before continuing; they can choose either Umastryx-1, Warrior-2 or Warrior-1, Umastryx-2).
I also use Sylvan cards a lot, so I normally see a lot of simultaneous excavate effects going off. It'd make sense to be able to control the order these effects activate.

Interesting topic. But it wouldn't work in that case because Umastryx is a mandatory effect and Warrior is an optional effect and the ruling says, that mandatory affects always have to apple before optional effects.

First, targeted by what card? There are cards that seemingly targets, but actually not.

Konami used to be fast nerfing broken skill. But it doesn't happen to Master of Destiny and Light & Dark. The reason is obvious, because those skills support archetype from EX Structure Deck

Kalin, Yubel and Jaden/Yubel should be added to the gate asap. Really tired of their repetitive boring events. Too bad Konami is very lazy to produce new stuffs except for one : creating new cards for box and structure deck

Hi there’s, what’s the best box to buy as a new player?

Usually, the few newest boxes.

You can also dig into Galactic Origin, Gaia Genesis, Generation Next, and Valiant Souls for the UR Spell/Trap cards like Cosmic Cyclone, Galaxy Cyclone, Paleozoic Canadia, Floodgate Trap Hole, and Drowning Mirror Force. Those are good backrow cards that fit any deck.

Blazing Rose and Dimension of the Wizards also have great staple Spell cards that are just R and N rarity respectively - World Legacy Clash and Power of the Guardians.

Servant of Kings also feature good SR Trap cards for beginners, although they're not that useful anymore once you go into PVP.

But they're still really good for non-PVP play.

So for now we only have 2 good synchro decks: 6sams and FL with another few generic syncs like Scrap Dragon, Vermillion and Armades. Is 1 year prolonged enough to promote this mechanic to its fullest?

The problem isn't time, the problem is the selection of cards we have.

Thanks to Konami being crap with testing and balancing, people are getting used to setting up strong board turn 1 now, so no one will run Synchro unless we can turbo them turn 1, hence why Six Sam is popular, as they can turbo Shi En synchro turn 1.

Six Sam isn't even a synchro deck, it's a warrior spam deck that just happens to have a synchro as its boss.

Another reason, arguably the biggest reason, for why Synchro isn't popular, is the need to run both Tuners and non-Tuners.

As the Synchro player need to have both on the field, a Synchro deck essentially bricks if the player only draws Tuners, or only draw non-Tuners.

Compared to Xyz that can use any monsters with the same level, or Links that can use any monsters period, Synchro is far more restricted to use.

Pendulum's power level would also be as low as Synchro if we don't have cards that can search other Pendulums so that you can set the Scales easily.
I was wondering if there was a monster reborn card in duel links because I have been playing it for awhile now and no luck so i trying to see if you guys even put it in the game

Use the in-game search function, the one where you enter a phrase in order to search. Enter "banish" as the phrase, then search.

Neos Fusion has a searcher now and,suprise! it's from another structure deck. Konami, I know, you have to make money but please, free my Cyber Angels, there is no excuses to have they banned while Neos is in full power.
