2 Econs is very Pro.
Trunade is played mostly by noobs, however some really op builds have 1 econ and 1 trunade.

- Just what I've seen.

I dont think you are really experienced.
You are just unlucky, that would be more fitting.

Well there is no wrong to replace a card if it don't fit into your deck. I do agree that econ is a dead card in some situation.

Not really useful now. Most people prefer trunade.

It is a quick-play spell though, and you can use it if it gets targeted by a spell/trap card. Hey trunade! can only be used during a turn.

Since SM was introduced this card sucks Vs SM spellbook decks. But useful overall
This card needs to be limited. It's out of control(no pun intended) because of Vampire and now BEWD decks

I can see dsow getting put on the list but I doubt cosmic is going there too. They are way more problematic cards that cosmic cyclone.

well i dont think dsow is getting hit because of the backrow we have in duel links
Still a good card..
It mystifies why people use the second effect during my turn, and don’t even do anything with the monster. “Yeah, I’m gonna go -2 to stall for precisely one turn. This is a good strategy.”

Depends on the circumstance. Against a deck like Amazoness or Fur Hire, that is absolutely the right move a lot of time.

If done at the right moment on the right monster, it also forces you to stop attacking, as otherwise you'll just gonna destroy one or more of your own monster in battle.

Then if the econ player draws a good card on the next turn, it could change the tide of the duel.
Sooo with this, it hasn't been activating after my mate plays Hey, Trunade on my traps, Econ is in my hand, and then he Cyber Steins in a BEUD then equips Axe of Despair. OTK imminant.
Econ doesn't prompt to stop it. Am I missing an effect or something?

You can only play Quick-Play Spell during opponent's turn if they are Set, not in your hand.

If a Quick-Play Spell is in your hand, you can only play it during your own turn.
Lol people who think this card is broken need to get good. We dont need whiny little ass that doesnt even know what is the meaning of "broken"

There will always be some cards that are better than others thats basically whats called "meta". However Yugioh has a big rng factor, because of that many decks are considered viable and thats what balances the game. Good decks are decks that minimize the rng factor,but they are not unbeatable. A Tier 4 Deck can still win against a Tier 1 deck.You can reach KOG with many decks, not just 2.

Really man. U have just lost all creditablity with just this comment. There will always be a meta. When the old meta dies a new one always rise up. Like how fur hire took over the place of sylvans. We duelist will always find ways to use card to put us in an advantage.

Also to ECON was really just a overpowered staple card but I would not say broken. Staple cards in terms that TheOtherAtem can understand are good generic cards that can be used in any deck.

everything is broken 4 a damn loser
Why the hell does the Auto-Duel ai use this card to tribute my Vorse raider for a Viser Des of 500 attack and no effect to take advantage of, only to lose both a significant amount of damage potential and be down a monster next turn rather than do the simpler thing and not use this card like that....

Also I would like to clarify that the auto AI does it straight away and when Viser Des is in atk position
did they nerf enemy controller? i cant seem to be able to activate it on the opponents turn

is your toggle off? if so, turn it to auto/on

or maybe u tried to activate it from ur hand?
You cant activate enemy controller from your hand during your opponent's turn, it has to be set in your spell/trap zone.

So is anyone going to post a list of the new best Yubel variant with E-cons? I can't find it...
Cause I think he would show more of the Neos and Neo-Spacian cards yet to be shown in Duel Links....
Has to be targeted by a card effect to use it's effect. Most players who can read won'...
