Everyone has discussed the banlist already. No point for me to do it again.
yeah its gonna be a stupid speed format. Heavy storm to 1 was good, but mst to 3 is really..... errr... lol. if it wasnt bad enough, breaker the magical warrior was starting to gain popularity again..
LS dominance bla bla bla. 7 boss monsters is retarded. Beckoning Light into Honest, JD and BLS -_-
I have started to maindeck 3 effect veiler and switched my Bottomless Trap Holes for DD Crows already to prepare for the new format =) Modded the Rabbit deck already. Looks good! Works well, and 2 Tragodia and 1 Gorz ensure that i will not be able to be OTK-ed.
So yeah, 2 Tragoedia and Gorz is Konami's answer to being OTK-ed.
Tour Guide Plants in TCG is gonna be even better.
Crow is still handy vs non speed decks like GB and Scrap and BF and good vs DW, LS etc.
One thing i like is that Duality wasnt touched.
Top tier decks (0 - 1.5) this format:
MGS synchro (Fabled)
It is impossible to get away with setting BTH and Warning at all this format because of 3 mst staple etc. The only way left to deal with this is either quit the game, play LS/ Twilight or play with Veilers and Crows.
Veiler stops your opponents monster effects for a turn so that you can take care of it next turn. Veiler is a staple now everywhere, in the TCG and even in the OCG. Too many annoying boss monsters around
Crow is good tech too. Transmigration Prophecy too. Chainable, annoying and versatile.
I really pity the TCG players because of Tour Guide and Tengu. I doubt Tengu is gonna be semi-ed because Kevin Tewart obviously likes it (mentioned in a post) and Konami decided to hit Plants extra hard instead to stop Tengu Plants.
