YGO 20XX Submission/Approval

Recommended Posts

This thread is strictly for the 20XX Submission/Approval. Anyone involved in this project can submit cards at their leisure and they will be reviewed here. I will post approvals accordingly to the the 20XX starter decks. Right now, the project dips into the Xyz Era so anything later than that likely won't make it onto the list until a later time. Have fun and enjoy the blessings of Mega Ultra Chicken.

Just a quick correction, we have Xyzs as well, but no Pendulums/Links.

 

Some notes that could help for designing in early 20XX format:

- 1900 is the ATK limit, and that is only limited to Normal monsters (any higher has downsides). 1700 ATK is the limit for Level 4 effect monsters.

- Traps are the most powerful card type.

- Special Summons are somewhat rare and costly.

- Normal monsters can have really strong support.

First card upload for me (*excited*) These are generic support for Elemental Decks

I'm gonna ignore the generic effects to each of the four cards and look at their actual individual effects instead.

Sapphirebloom can be useful for keeping the field occupied so you don't take direct attacks.

Rubybloom is just to give a monster a second attack at the cost of a monster.

Quartzbloom is single turn protection for a monster you control.

Emeraldbloom is just a Spell version of Hane-Hane.

Now that that is covered, I could actually approve these since you do lose a monster to use the above mentioned effects. But these cards could be helpful in a pinch.

Mmm, I see. I tried to make them not so powerful so they match the average capabilities of that era. My thoughts for those effects you mentioned were: Saphire helps to bring a monster of adequate level for Synchro/Xyz. Ruby Tributes a weak monster to let a strong one attack twice, Quartz for delivering a finishing blow without worries, Emerald to take care of those annoying Xyz Monsters that resist destruction. They also have a banishing effect that adds a bit of versatility. I wanted to give FIRE/EARTH/WIND an effect similar of WATER's This card's name is also always treated as Umi, but I don't know if there are Decks that can use fields such as Sogen, Mountain, Yami etc that can be used as Umi does.

Where can one find a compilation of what cards currently exist in this format?

Hello, fine person!

I didn't know you were interested in the format!  So far, the only cards in the pool are the Starter Decks which are shown to anyone who's interested.  Please express your interest in this thread, and I'll add you to the PM where you can see the deck lists.  A formalized way to see the card pool will be up soon-ish.

I'm... gonna have to be the bad guy here; those spells are too strong at the pool's current level.  All the spells have 4 effects (which is more than any card in the pool so far), and all of them have at least 1 effect that's powerful even in today's TCG environment.  PM me and we'll see what can be done to work them into the pool.

 

I'll toss in some sample cards to help people get a good gauge:

High-Level monster:

Hurricane Wyvern
WIND 7*
Dragon/Effect
WIND monsters gain 200 ATK.  When this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You can return all cards in 1 column to their owner's hand.
2100/2000

 

Mid-Level monster:

Quake Machine
EARTH *****
Machine/Effect
When this card is Normal Summoned: You can change the battle position of all monsters your opponent controls.  If this card's battle position is changed, swap the ATK and DEF of all monsters on the field.
2000/1000

 

Low-Level monsters:

Seashore Tribesman
WATER ***
Warrior/Effect
If you control "Umi", you can tribute this card and target 1 face-up card your opponent controls; destroy that target.
1000/1000

Fireball Spirit
FIRE *
Pyro/Tuner/Effect
When this card is destroyed by battle, inflict 300 damage to your opponent and decrease the ATK and DEF of all monsters your opponent controls by 300.
0/300

 

Spell:

Xyz Vortex
Normal Spell
Discard 1 card and target 1 Set card your opponent controls; attach that target to 1 Xyz monster on the field.

 

Trap:

Funhouse Mirror
Normal Trap
When the opponent declares a direct attack: Negate the attack, and if you do, Special Summon 1 "Inverted Token" whose Type, Attribute, and Level are equal to the target's Type, Attribute and Level/Rank.  The token's ATK/DEF are equal to the original DEF/ATK of the targeted monster.  When that target leaves the field, destroy the token.

 

Here's a good hint: If you can make a card and it isn't broken even without a "Once per turn" clause, it should be good to fit into the pool. If you HAVE to balance it with an OPT, it's probably too powerful for right now.

I somehow doubt any of my cards will break the Lv7 barrier until later on.

 

So here goes:

A nice little Phoenix card to Start an Archtype that I never quite got around to working on.

a.png

Effect: Cannot be used as Synchro Material except for the Synchro Summon of a FIRE monster. If this card was used as material for the Synchro Summon of a FIRE monster: During your next Draw Phase, you can Special Summon it from your GY instead of conducting your normal draw. Each time this card is Special Summoned by its own effect: It gains 1 Level and 300 ATK/DEF.

I thought about it for a while. So it can only Synchro Summon FIRE monsters and cards that can be potentially powerful usually start out as complete crap. Also, you lose your draw if you choose to bring it back. Sadly, the effect still doesn't put it up there with most heavy hitters. This thing literally maxes out at 3400/3400. Also, it's generally Synchro fodder for like the first 6 turns.

Yeah, that works.

Could you also put the effect text somewhere, so I can grab it for the card pool sheet?

Quicksand

Trap Card

When a monster your opponent controls declares an attack: That monster's ATK/DEF is reduced by half; also, it cannot declare an attack for 2 turns.

 

Ok. This is pretty simple. It does what quicksand essentially does.

Your name... It's very familiar, but I can't remember how we interacted. Were you in the AGM?

 

Regardless, Yuuji is correct. No semicolon is needed in "Quicksand" as (I assume) it's not meant to be a cost. Other than that, the effect is fine so once the grammar is fixed up, it's approved for 20XX!

Awesome. Technically just needed to support the earth deck on the defensive side.

 

I know most cards are set up as "Condition: Cost/Trigger/Effect;Effect/Secondary Effect" now since Konami didn't want to list the 50k effects of Ra.

I was on a borderline banning troll spree back in 2016 ish with an ex sharing my acc, and I was involved with some CCing mostly. I got banned from the discord from an issue with Thar and avoiding timeouts. No one seemed to have really investigated on the issue with Thar or gave me a proper explanation sadly, although the punishment avoidance ban was pretty justified but it was just fun to stir things up back then lol.

To be fair I wished they expanded on forcing opponent's monsters to attack as more of a theme with Earth monsters, but so far nothing directly like that with an archetype yet unless they did it recently.

Quicksand allows the first attack to go through (albeit at half the power) then shuts that monster down for a couple turns. So think a combo of Mirror Wall / Nighmare Steel Cage for 1 monster.

Ok, got it. I was confused about the power levels because, on one hand, you have the Starter Decks, which are extremely basic compared to the current meta, and then on the other it is mentioned that even Xyz are allowed since they're pre-Pendulum era, where there are already nasty Decks like Shadoll, Burning Abyss, Mermails, etc.

ATK 1500 / DEF 800
20XX-EN006

Innocence Mermaid Opeline        WATER
Level 3
Aqua / Tuner / Effect

I'll leave these here for now in the hope they're approved. I want to make a couple of Traps and Extra Deck monsters too, but I'll wait to see if I have to nerf these or if they're ok 🙂

On the mermaids: Individually, they are quite balanced. Together, they are very abusable. I don't mean this in a bad way. But each turn, you would essentially be placing 4 counters on Umi. This is literally a 5, 2, 7, 1, 6, 0, 5cycle. So every 2 turns, you would be able to utilize at least 2 of the mermaids' effects. The effects are pretty good. But maybe I'm only looking at the possibly of all 4 mermaids making it to the field.

Eclipse

Normal Spell

When this card is activated, you can choose one of these effects:

  • Discard 1 LIGHT monster, then add 1 DARK monster from your GY to your hand.
  • Discard 1 DARK monster, then add 1 LIGHT monster from your GY to your hand.

Just a test. If it's cool, I'll try and make more Chaos thingies.
