So, am I the only one who feels like E-Dragons are going to be the weirdist hit ever. They have 8 cards in total, 4 big dragons, 4 baby dragons. But what can really be done to slow them down? I am sure Tempest will see himself limited, since he can search anything in the deck (yes, even LaDD). Out of the babies, I can't really see any of them being banned, because they're mostly used to summon the bigger ones for XYZ's, or being banished to summon a big one again. That being said, if any of them were hit, I'd assume they'd all be hit.

 

 

Thoughts?

[9:02:43 PM] Mephisto: player B has a face up Ancient lamp, and a set ancient lamp

Really the only thing I can think of at all that would kill the pure E Dragon deck, while leaving the attribute able to fulfill it's original purpose of general attribute support (which would be the ideal end result, I think), is probably a limit on the minis (or perhaps just a semi) then a semi on the big dragons. This would create an elemental dragon engine of 1 mini dragon and 2 big dragons for element-based decks

 

That being said, this theory is using logic from the magical world of common sense that konami seems to have placed an embargo on long ago. So chances are this will never happen due to being too much of a hit

I'm sure that it is already established that it is the minis which make the deck consistent. Seeing how Konami have hit consistency of the top decks in the previous format (Inzektor, Six Samurai) it is most likely that the chibis would go. But limiting all 4 Minis at in one banlist seems highly unlikely, but possible if we look back at Gadgets (or was it semi-limit? Couldn't remember)

 

But I have a feeling that they'll at least survive this September, looking back at the previous trends.

This deck is beyond crazy. When I saw Spellbook of Judgment I thought that **** was nuts, but wow. It somehow manages to pale in comparison to Super Rejuvenation.

I swear, this deck is the definition of power creep. Honestly, it might even be good enough to compete with a ton of older stupid decks like 3 launcher infernity, yata lock, and even teledad.


No, Joseph Stalin was a hero who had to make sacrifices for the betterment of the greater good.


Who the fuck are you people even trying to convince by making completely weightless blanket statements? Like people are actually putting some sort of effort to make good posts giving legitimate reasoning as to why RPS is not, has not, and never will be a balanced way to "randomly" pick who goes first, while you fucking toolbags just post the most irrelevant and pointless shit thinking that you're adding some sort of weight to the discussion.

All you're really contributing to at this point is the massive list of problems that DNF has in terms of post quality. Stop.

I say just limit them all. Four big dragons and their younger counterparts are still fairly dangerous, they just won't swarm the field any more. That at least makes them playable.

Judgment Day is nothing against Super Rejuve. Drawing more than 25 cards in a turn is nuts if u play it in Exodia Dragon Turbo

Easy way to stop most of their effects. Mental Drain and Soul Drain.

As said above, the Lords to 2 and Chibis to 1 would balance the pure deck while letting them remain available to their intended targets, the actual elemental decks. This seems like an ideal situation, and it's what I'm hoping for.

 

Failing that, they would need to straight ban one or two of the Lord-Chibi pairs. This is not ideal, mostly since it hoses legit decks (though killing Fire and Water would be the best end state here in the current meta)

Im expecting too see a big eye hit coming with the september banlist. Possibly dracossack too , if tachyon galaxy isnt as popular anymore , or if it gets reprinted in any of the new tins.

Either way , im not looking forward to playing vs e-dragons at my locals. Hopefully not as many people will be playing it at locals because they are pretty expensive

as the big dragons are like 8$ each and dracossack is like 200$ and big eye like 100$+. We can only hope atleast some of them get hit in the september banlist.

Also , if you go first and make shock master first turn , GG e-dragons.

The thing that needs to be done is the spells getting limited. Most people I ask think that relimiting Sarco is a good idea, Super Rejuv also desperately needs a hit to 1, it would also be a Deep Dragon Draw Exodia hit, and finally, Sacred Sword to 1. Hit those and they've just lost a total of 5-6 maindecked cards, in that, they'll be forced to main 3 Upstart Goblin and whatever else. Hitting Dracosack is unfair for Mecha Phantom Beasts, the intended deck for it. However, limiting Dracosack would not be enough, you'd also have to limit Big Eye, but that would make the deck in total virtually unplayable...but then again...

Id agree that limiting sarc and reju would be nice,but people play 1 seven star anyway because its cloggy so no need for hiting it..

 

Also lol what who cares about hiting drago being unfair for phantom beasts,i want this deck to die so ban it please


The thing is just the definition of the term power creep.

Perhaps "power blast-off-a-cliff-in-your-rocket-powered-motorcycle-screaming-heavy-metal-songs" would be a better fit. I don't think any deck had been close enough to this level of power previously to call it "creep" :P

How about limit the big ones and leave the chibis? 4 cards on list doesn't feel weird, and probably that for the moment and next cards to follow on the 2014 banlist, just like what they do with the windups

Meh, I've stressed this point b4 too; e-drags r extremely hard 2 hit cuz' they don't have 1 of 2 specific key cards: all of the dragons make up the problem. Yes, the idea way 2 hit them would be to semi the big dragons and limit the chibis. The big dragons support other decks too so limiting them or outright forbidding them would damage other decks that benefit from them. Also hitting the spells isn't too effective either; rejuv wasn't played that much b4 e-drags 4 a reason, yet hitting it would also hurt every other dragon deck that benefits from it. Same goes 4 sarco and star sword isn't even broken or used much in e-drags.

All Chibis to 1 (or to 0 for what I care), the Chibis are the ones that completely blasted out E-Dragons and made their restriction of only 1 effect of each dragon per turn meaningless (because you can abuse those effects AND gain field presence at the same time thanks to the Chibis). Super Rejuvenation can also get hit, it's design was pretty questionable already.

I see Konami hitting Rejuvenation since it only sees play in degenerative decks.

Considering that they're not exactly a competitive deck, they can afford to run weird techs like that. Might as well get some draws after Tributing all your stuff.

-Limit the 4 adult dragons. Keep the 4 baby dragons unlimited

This isn't that bad, but what'll hurt more is if:

 

-Limit Dracossack

-Ban/(maybe Limit) Big Eye
