  1. Hmmm as I was reading your reply I got a thought, maybe not so much noting your current field-state, but instead noting the opponent's cards. What you aim to do is to prevent those heavily disruptive fields from the turn 1 player like 5 omni-negate bosses, 3 set Solemns, and 4 handtraps xD You kind of got the the same conclusion I see, since you did write "or your opponent controls at least 3 more cards than you do". I think you could slightly release some of that tightness of the condition, after all you are not yet immune to the opponent even after you drop this card. They can still dr
  2. On one hand, it is super situational because you can't exactly search/draw into it the turn you wanna use it, giving it a bigger waiting window than most decks would want to go through. It also requires a completely empty field, which is either after a nuke (where the opponent is likely pushing for game right there) or your opening play. Dimension Shifter has what I think is a lot worse of a condition to make it live and it somehow found its way into competitive builds (which I still to this day don't understand why people would risk such a brick for the sake of a potential game opener hand
  3. Finally got around to seeing the Pokemon direct. I'm intrigued for the Legends game, but I'll still wait. Not a fan of the Let's Go method of catching wild pokemon but glad they actually updated graphics and attack animations better. Still can't help but be cautious.
    DP remakes, tbh I'm not a fan of the chibi and it shouldn't be a "loyal/nostalgic experience", It should have all of which the original had and then some things to expand on. This currently looks like a time capsule and I bet they won't even allow gen 5+ mons in the dex. Also gotta see how they end up doing the SwSh Exp Share method... shivers

      I agree with everything you said. I wish they took more of the OR/AS remake method with D/P :/

  4. My lunch break ended so I actually couldn't address one more thing I wanted to: That's a weird take on the story with "I sided with my friend when nobody else would" but really it is more like Horu: "that one friend of mine was causing distress and destroying progress work made by the entire team, and getting worse every time but I preferred to side with him over my other friends in the group that were the actual victims in this. After all, I never really cared about that project I was a part of, child's junk am I right? that's why no matter what that one friend of mine did to them, nothin
  5. There's no point in the "ban me for a while" option if you request to make it partial due to still wanting to check the page. If it isn't a total lock from the site, asking for ban assistance becimes just a waste of time for the mod.... and it better be at least a full 7 day week. This "I'll be checking" throws the rest of the efforts on the trash. Do you wanna rest or not? The fact you really think "I just had to phone mah man Flame D real quick and he'd have thrown the election thread on the trash an' elected me" is your level of influence is so unreal. I'll ask you then, why don't you
  6. This is a very interesting idea, and yeah Wind-Ups just showed me how broken some cards can get. Poor HERO Fusions that all now just have "must be Fusion Summoned" as their effect xD I'm definitely gonna look up cards to see more of this. It's a bit harsher than simpley "he #1 effect" as it can include other clauses at "all of it". It for one might eliminate a ton of hard OPT clauses from S/T cards.
  7. Hey is it me or are TCG products getting super expensive these days? Digimon had a case of short supply for unexpectedly high demand in the newest iteration of its attempt at card games. Yugioh has sudden random stuff like old versions of DMG costing as much as Starlight Rares which I hadn't seen those degrees of spiking in previous years. Pokemon is also strangely spiraling out of control with some full art cards getting 2 or 3 times more expensive... I don't know the details on why it is apparently rocking right now.
    I have no idea about MTG but I'm gonna think it is the exception with those random spam of facebook ads of this "Secret Lair" product that usually looks very non-MTG-like and is apparently pretty pricey for the amount of cards it actually provides (honestly I don't think I'm super hooked up on that one but what is the general consensus on that?)

      Got back from looking up the Jumpstart info I could find. That's an interesting piece of information. MTG had a flawed prediction of sales numbers due to COVID and the some quality control issues, but otherwise the way it is an alternative to a draft/cube that is self sufficient is done in a pretty interesting manner.

      The secret lair stuff (mainly a Valentine's theme box that apparently was impossible to get shipped before Valentine's day no matter when you preordered it)...

      Yeah Blue Eyes is ridiculous and it's not even the DDS one, and Dark Magician Girl is also going high up. What made me think of this topic was actually Rosa's full art in Pokemon's TCG, which was a ridiculous 50 USD last year but now it is suddenly like 120+ and apparently a lot more scarce. Other cards I had checked that were on their 20s are no 50s, if they were around 8 now they are in the 20s... it's crazy.

      Digimon's decks were officially 10 each but you cannot find them at least than 30 now, and sometimes people are asking as much as 50.... and it's all resellers that stocked up and the company said the are planning on sending more product to combat all this soon sooo this one is more of a scam from the secondary market.

      Full disclaimer: I'm not really looking to buy all this stuff... I just can be weird like that, checking markets for the sake of it I suppose xD

      Well, I can tell you this based on my visit to the department store. There's plenty of Magic thr Gathering stuff here. With the exception of the Freezing Chains Structure Decks, there's only like...four booster packs from the Evil Twin set, and a couple of those Kaiba and Mai boxes. And NOTHING for the Pokemon card game. I remember how for years, only the easily impressionable kids would buy Pokemon packs and tins.

      It started with COVID money bumping up starlight rares. I can touch more on the YGO market if you'd like. Vintage cards have been rapidly rising since March 2019.

  8. Here's 3 things I have to upload: The first is an alien character I made a long time ago for card art. The second is random a page of doodles I made during work's break one day, trying to come up with weird looking vegetables for my comic project. The last one is a sketch request I'm still working on, Ib from Yugioh but made in my dot-eyes style of drawing.
  9. "Note" is such an unusual term that I had to re-read it a few times xD It's interesting. At first I was gonna complain about the second token having "max" but thinking about it, Summon loops would be an issue, so good call.... 3k is a bit low compared to the max 20k of King of Skull Servants or 10k Utopia Double.... and I apologize to the might of Blue-Eyes's legacy for calling 3k "low" but yeah xD I very much like the concept of transforming the canvas and the painting itself taking time to complete (notes in this case xD ). Umm is that how activation works? As I understood it, a Spel
  10. That is also very much possible. That the character was just reading standing up and lifted the head to answer but not straightening up in full due to the intention of getting back down to the book after replying. It is a viable pose so it is very much an nitpick from me. I'd personally have slightly tilted the head forward in an angle to emphasize that motion of looking from the book to the viewer. Right now only the neck is forwarded and in a static image rather than an actual animation, my first impression was a little dorky and not the scene you described xD Here I'm hoping I'm not soun
  11. Welcome to the club. I hope you get to find the inspiration you need. We are actually a pretty lax club so you might see some periods of inactivity once in a while, but I'll assure you that the place is not dead xP I'd say that's a pretty amazing looking piece. Braids are a pretty elaborate haircut and I've always been weak on machinery myself, but the bit that I like the most is how good the lighting effects look as a whole. If I had to nitpick... since you said you also look for improvement, I'm gonna try to not just be praising this time =) I think the head could be placed a tiny l
  12. Speaking of, I don't think I've posted my nun here:
  13. Saw this since the morning on my break, and finally got home where my internet is workable xD As the club's founder/president, I hereby welcome you to Le Crayon Corner! We don't really have a real member list, so it is a pretty open club to anybody that wants to come what with others xP That's a pretty cool image of Madolche Magileine. I had never really noticed that she had heterochromia until I saw your drawing.
  14. I'd definitely test the recycle effect of 3 cards. I think it is one of a kind there. Scrap Recycler, Inzektor Picofalena, Naturia Marron, etc... all are more specific than "any 3 cards", which under Chateau you'll be able to put any monsters among those into your hand even if they are non-Madolche monsters. That said, some sort of combo must be doable with this somewhere (although nothing specific comes to mind). The "draw 1 if you used Madolches" is a nice bonus, a given in its own deck but with the potential for something elsewhere. Previously Glassoufle was the only card with this sort of
  15. Sooo is DuelingBook abandoned to rot away now after Flash got cut off? I went there yesterday and a lot of visuals seem to be broken.

      For me, all graphics were broken. Card images were not loading and hovering over their space in the deck building section would have the thumbnail versions show up with no stars if they showed at all. The chat at the entrance of the site had no avatars, stuff like that. It does not look like your version Rayfield at all xD
      Oddly enough Mr Best Male 2008's link was a bit different, first appearing with html5 or something along the lines after the "www.duelingbook.com/" part. After I clicked that link it started functioning normally there, and closing and going to the site myself again just normalized it that day. I've just tested going there (without using the link provided above) myself and seems it now just is fixed somehow xD

  16. For a moment I thought Konami was just screwing WIND again, but good thing it was just a misprint. Not ideal but not the worst. I think it's a little late in the game's life to be getting exact Level generic elemental Ritual Spells with no extra quirk to them considering Earth Chant and Contact with the Abyss came out almost 20 years ago. If we go by the time difference between Sprite's Blessing's release and this card, I guess we can expect the FIRE and WATER ones to complete the set in 8 to 10 more years.... even though we got stuff like the Drytron Spell nowadays that says "any Ritual Mo
  17. I think it does, it doesn't cover the typical isekai aesthetic (which is like being an MMORPG in a fantasy setting.. probably with medieval vibes in it) but it DOES cover up the definition of "main character transported into another world".
  18. Let's see.... stuff I've seen or heard of regarding Isekai: SAO I've got a pretty good idea of what happens at almost every bit of the story despite only having actually seen one episode. Looks pretty but I've heard too many flaws so a decade later and I still mostly don't feel like watching it. My brother got into it a few months ago and said it's not so bad so at least I'm a little bit curious to see it first hand. The second game they enter is universally considered the worst of the series, but speaking present day I heard Alicization was pretty good. If I were to check again the franchi
  19. Send me the art concepts for the traps and I'll try to make some time to draw them. Though it's been roughly a year since I drew those deer images... hopefully I can still match their colors and stuff xD Can't make it promises but it might be a good source of inspiration. About the way you wanna limit the amount of Deer monsters you can give away, just be careful because they are quick effects. You can probably chain all of them when they meet the requirement, and after all have been put in motion, you'll start resolving and giving them away. It is better to make it an independent clause li
  20. Was Night Assailant semi'd during Goat Format? because that first list to me looks like something where I'd run Assailant over Serpent any day, addressing the same issue of being a Delinquent Duo counter but with instant gratification that could not only loop into itself but onto a different FLIP. EDIT: Or do like the second list and run both xD Actually the second decklist overall looks more effective to me... maybe bar the distinction of main vs side for the Solemns. Nice to see Mask of Darkness in a deck list though, decks usually gave it more of a cold shoulder and I've tested enoug
  21. I have a few suggestions in terms of the archetype: First, the moving effect: (Quick Effect): The owner of this card can move it to an unused Main Monster Zone from/to either side of the field. You see, the way it is written right now, you can move the deer as you please from your side to another place on your own side, and if you give control of it via Creature Swap or whatever other effect, you can also force them back to you, but it does NOT include you being able to give your deer away to the opponent's side. Second, the negative effects while the opponent is controlling them: I
  22. Those are really sweet words, n-n Thanks!!! As for why handsome Squidward made the cut? well because it's so handsome xD Those aren't even a fourth of my total drawings so it made a pretty nice selection xP Btw, nice apple technique. I think I've noticed something like that in videos of digital art being drawn, where suddenly it looks like they magically colored/shaded everything in a way that normally would have had them cover most of the screen in that color but it ends up respecting the image's borders and linework. Good to finally know how they do it xD Now that I've made that
  23. To be honest, I think most of the Xyz design of the era was fine and even generally a little more tame than Synchros before them, but the bigger issue was the engines that supported them. It was often the Main Deck engines that swarmed and enabled all that junk. The Wind Up Loops, the Inzektor's extending more the more they popped, Satellarknights dropping like 4 Level 4s every turn, etc. Though yes it can't be denied there was a very strong bump of powercreep at that point in the game, and it really did become tradition that every new generation/series/mechanic would begin with a month or so
  24. Ok so, I've tried to reply to this a pretty good number of times and gone through edits but there was a glitch in the forum (which I'm not sure is fixed for sure yet but we'll see if this attempt goes through). First, it's nice to see you around. I don't think I've seen you in a while. You should repost some of the old stuff from page 2 because the old links are broken. Addressing the post itself, I'd like to believe I've been improving somewhat. A lot of it is trying to keep in shape because work IRL take a lot out of me (both time and energy) but some of the stuff that looks the same I
