Mana? In Yu-Gi-Oh!?!

Post by MysticJhn » Fri Nov 23, 2018 12:13 am

This is going to be a weird concept, because it partly uses the concept of a mana pool, but does so in a very Yu-Gi-Oh way.
Basically I'm going to abuse Pendulum Monsters, but NOT for Pendulum Summons.
They act similarly to Lands in Magic where they generate Mana Counters when in the Pendulum Zones, but in a Hearthstone manner they generate at the start of the turn and are spent to Summon your monsters.
So, in a way, this will be a non-Pendulum Pendulum Deck.
It's a vague concept, so I'll have to work on ways to generate more counters than the previous turn.
The actual monsters that do the attacking and monster effects will require spending counters to Special Summon.
Higher level ones will spend more counters to Summon, but with greater effects.
I don't think they will have Extra Deck monsters themselves, as they are better for Material, and card games that use mana
or other kinds of summoning costs tend not to have abusable extra decks like Yu-Gi-Oh, so your whole extra deck will have to be more generic.
