    Supervis? Just by the name it sounds cool.

    Alright, got it. And here I was thinking it could be any amount of stars, having the ability to get rid of two random giants to synchro summon an 8 star... lol.

    Got it, one Tuner, one normal (unless the card specifies otherwise, like "1 Tuner Monster + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters".)

    How did they work out?

    They aren't? I'll still try em out, though.

    A perfect, straight up star match?

    What's the funniest deck you've ever seen?

    And, I might have to introduce Gemeni monsters to my friends. Pretty sure they're powerful, but I want to learn how to use Tuner/Synchro cards.
    I remember watching one episode of YGO 5'ds cause I wanted to see some Tuner Monsters. You can really fuse any one Tuner monster and fuse it with another random monster to create a Synchro monster?

    I actually got my butt kicked by an Injection Fairy Lily once XD

    Really? I was told differently, lol. Still, I like to only have one copy of a Limited Edition card in my deck at a time, unless I'm running a Red-Eyes Darkness Metal deck, where it's pretty much required.

    Well, there are some cards on the ban list I just won't use. Sure, Yata-Garasu has a good effect, but keeping your opponent from drawing while having a Spring of Rebirth, Fire Princess + Yata-Garasu kind of combo and something that lets Yata attack the opponents LP directly would be a little too unfair and boring, unless the opponent has destruction cards in their hand.

    Alright, sounds like a good idea. I've done that before, but only once or twice. At the time I thought it was a little stupid, but now it does seem to be useful.

    I just wikia'd them, holy hell. I thought tuner monsters were good.

    Oh ****, I should have read into that Cry Havoc! effect more. And, I was thinking the exact same thing with the combos I listed, so I'm thinking of taking those out too.

    The only problem is, that with the cards you mentioned, I don't have them. I only had one Swords of Revealing light, but my HAY D00D PLAY W/ 60 CARDS ITS BETTAR friend took it. Pretty sure I can buy em' cheap off of Amazon, though. The only card there that doesn't run cheap is one I want for a spellcaster deck: Dark Magician Girl. Oh well, guess I'll just use cards from the Magician structure deck.

    And, with Call of the Haunted being banned, I go by casual gameplay. The only true official rules I follow are:
    No more than one LIMITED EDITION monster in deck
    No more than three of the same card in deck

    And, the Six Samurai? Just wikia'd them, they seem pretty powerful. I'm going to have to consider buying them.

    Gemeni Monsters?

    Well, I was only speaking from my own experience with spellcasters, which I don't have a lot of, lol. But, Spellcaster Synchro? That sounds interesting. I still need to try out Synchro/Tuner monsters myself.

    Warrior deck I built: (I had removing enemy monsters and protecting my own in mind)
    Swift Gaia The Fierce Knight
    Gearfried the Swordmaster
    Black Luster Soldier
    Gilford the Lightning
    Command Knight
    Obnoxious Celtic Guard x2
    Marauding Captain
    Exiled Force
    Gearfried the Iron Knight
    D.D. Warrior
    Familiar Knight x2
    Warrior Lady of the Wasteland x2
    Rocket Warrior
    D.D. Warrior Lady
    D.D. Assailant
    Magician of Faith
    Mataza the Zapper

    Enemy Controller
    Release Restraint x2
    Gift of the Martyr
    Monster Reborn
    Dark Core
    Fusion Sword Mursame Blade
    Black Luster Ritual
    Nobleman of Crossout
    Brain Control
    Reinforcement of the Army
    Spiral Spear Strike
    The Warrior Returning Alive

    Call of the Haunted
    Pineapple Blast
    Ready for Interception
    Sakuretsu Armor
    Altar for Tribute
    Cry Havoc!
    A Feint Plan

    Strategies/Combos I have with some of those cards:
    Ready for Interception -> A Feint Plan
    Brain Control -> Gift of the Martyr -> Monster Reborn
    Cry Havoc -> Swift Gaia -> Pineapple Blast
    Enemy Controller -> Altar for Tribute -> Call of the Haunted

    Thinking about adding Heavy Storm/Torrential Tribute, I don't know. A lot of cards I had in thought had to be kicked out. I was planning a Warrior Equup deck, but I wouldn't have a hell load of protection from an opponents Heavy Storm/Torrential. Which brings me to thinking about removing the Gearfried monsters for Special Summon/Destruction cards, or helpful ones like Defense Draw.

    And, the reason why I have Black Luster Soldier is because I just got the Ritual Spell card, and I haven't used that mofo in awhile, haha.

    Currently, it's the only YGO game I have, lol. Any games you'd recommend?

    Very, very true. Not only will they need protection, they need to be able to be powerful. What do you think about the Warrior type? I might post a deck I made just today that's warrior based.

    Check it out here.

    I've been on and off for the last couple of years.
    Still, during my downtimes, I look at the cooler looking cards/monsters, like Magician of Black Chaos. Totally gonna make a spellcaster deck with that.

    Ah. Which dueling games do you have?
    And, do you remember Eternal Duelist Soul? lol

About Me

  • About Gymnotide

    So after however many years I've been on The PokéCommunity, I've finally decided to write myself a biography. It's not going to be anything fancy or anything that's too interesting, simply for the reason that I feel this /block of text/ is only there to appease (1) my unlikely stalkers and (2) the feeling within that wants all my literature to fall into neatly arranged paragraphs of sizable length. If you didn't realize, that was a very long sentence.

    I'm Gymnotide--and I'm however-many years of age; characteristic of my age is the undying distaste of having to update this biography at least once per year (so, I'll leave you to your calculations if you really care). Right now, I'm a college student--or I was at the time of writing this and have neglected to update it upon graduation. I'm native to New York City, but that's not where my college is. Come visit me; I dare you.

    In terms of school, I'm a double-major in Classical Studies and Biology. For the former, I'm studying Ancient Greek and Roman culture, with a stronger interest in the Greek portion. If I can, I would like to study Ancient Medicine in particular (which leads into my love for all types of alternative medicines). Fun fact: I can actually read Classical Greek better than the majority of people on the Earth. For the latter, I am doing Core Biology with an emphasis on Evolutionary Studies. When I was in high school, I was much more attracted to the molecular portion. However, I've since changed my focus to something I enjoy more. It's a shame, though, that Evolutionary Studies is /still/ one of the most misunderstood sciences (and I can bet a tooth that you don't grasp it at all either).

    Overall, I am also a pre-medical student. That means I have to take all the other Core Sciences as well--but, no big deal. Science is a fairly simple field to excel in. I might go to medical school; I might not. I know plenty about the mechanisms of the human body--but I'm no expert yet. I might end up as a physician, but being a physical therapist would be fantastic too. Worst case scenario, I end up being a veterinarian (but, hey, animals are top among my lists of favorite things).

    On the side, I study a wide list of things. For example, I can boast a wide array of vocabulary (albeit eighty-percent of my lexicon serves no practical use) and an obnoxious amount of syntax and grammar knowledge. I also relish in trivia--mainly referring to /trivialities/ here--of all kinds (but especially relating to animals, fruits & vegetables, and science-related things). I'm the king of un-practicality.

    I can also brag about my extensive knowledge in atheist theology (I'll tell you why atheists can be religious, why you're not "agnostic," and dozens of other technicalities that make people hate me) and mythology (I've been studying myths from around the world since I was young; nothing excites me more than a good cosmology).

    Oh, but if you were wondering about Pokémon--I do know a lot about that too. Even at my age, I'm still an avid fan, perhaps nearing the edge of fanaticism. I keep check on a lot of gameplay mechanics (and update Bulbapedia accordingly) and know just about everything there is to know about the handheld games. That being said, I can put up a nice fight in competitive battling, but I'm no pro like those guys in the CBC.

    tl;dr -- I am really smart.
