After like a really long time, i finally have time to make a post.
Every exam has been fine, except History. Having mixed feelings. Many opinion questions, but you never know where you could go wrong cos you could have different opinions from the markers. Afterall the paper is supposed to be subjective... BUT Malaysian education is NOT subjective. Still banking on an A but no A+ so owell.
This post will be based on ORCS. From LGQ's blog, i managed to see that Konami has released Dark Blade, Head Soldier of Dark UnderWorld.
The original text of the Dark Blade card spoke about him being linked to the Dark World army so im kinda glad that its finally here. Its good Konami released cards that are linked to the old storyline of Yugioh. For example, the Legendary Six Samurai. Its always nice to see old cards again.
Now to discuss Dark Blade the Commander.
Being 1800 attack makes him nifty because he can be a good beatstick and being dark is just adding icing to the topping of a greatly designed card.
Dark Blade is probably the best generic card in the set because of its usefulness in the sideboard.
I think Konami purposely designed this card to tackle the Angel deck problem. This is like the best answer to Kristia ever, and it even answers to Hyperion, and occasional random stuff like BLS etc.
This card works well in DW (obviously), Blackwings (grave or whirlwind), and most importantly Junk Dopple.
I think this card was created FOR Junk Dopple specifically because Doppel have few outs to Kristia besides BTH (which is not even a staple!) and the other only thing is Ryko. Banishing a dark is free for Doppel who has Tragoedia, Chaos Sorceror, Tomato, Junk, Dop Warrior, Sangan bla bla swimming in the grave constantly.
The fact that it is a Warrior allows it to be searched via rota, and rota could be dead mid or late game sometimes. Having Dark sword sided gives you more options for Rota. Who wouldnt like summoning a 1800 beatstick which clears Kristia in the mid to late game?
This card answers to half the problems you could face against Angels already so i think it is pretty good. The other half comes from Gachi, or occasionally otk-ed by Daigusta Phoenix and Orange Lights waiting in their hands.
Exceed Reborn is quite funny too because it looks like a thinned down version of the TCG design of Monster Reborn and i think the Turtle Who will Once be Called God is probably the cutest card in the whole set. Enthusiasts would love to get their hands on Gagaga Girl, which i have no idea why too.
Overall I see ORCS to be a pretty decent set with good themes like Ninjas and the Insecters are also decent , so it kinda reminds me a little like CRMS except we dont have broken Dark Dive Bomber , but its definitely an improvement from the last 2 Zexal sets.
Its still not worth buying a whole box unless your gonna be playing Ninjas.
EDIT: Post is null and void. Dark Blade only solves level 4 or lower light monsters. Thanks to all the people who notified me. Shriek got it wrong this time. Wanna delete it but nvm just let it be
