YGO Reset - Save 10 Cards

Post by MysticJhn » Thu Jun 15, 2017 9:51 pm

Let us pretend for a minute that the game is resetting itself.
As a solution to too many forbidden cards, a chance to unite the OCG and TCG, overwhelming power creep,
or the game was bought out by another company and they want nothing to do with the old game.
Supposing the game was reset for one or more of these reasons, or any other reason, what 10 cards would you bring along to the new game?
List your choice of cards and perhaps a reason why.

1. Blue-Eyes White Dragon
2. Dark Magician
3. Dark Magician Girl
4. Red-Eyes B. Dragon

I picked all 4 of these for the same reason; they are iconic.
It is hard to imagine Yu-Gi-Oh existing without these 4 in some form, especially my top 2.

5. Cyber Dragon

Another choice as an iconic monster, but I think it's concepts and branching strategies helped Yu-Gi-Oh.

6. Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning

I couldn't honestly start over without something from Invasion of Chaos, and I think he's the ideal candidate.
Everyone knows him, everyone knows what he does, he's NOT currently banned, and didn't need an errata to get off the ban list.

7. Horus the Black Flame Dragon

A bit of a cheat, but I'm going to include the full LV range here.
Horus LV6 and Horus LV8 especially, as I think Horus LV is more of an icon (he did get a Wyrm counterpart even though he's only the middle tier)
and LV8 back in the day was quite the impressive monster.
They basically define the concept of LV monsters, how they work, and their potential.
LV monsters could use a refresher in the current game, I like their concept.
If YGO was reset, they are a good base point.

8. Umi

Sort of. I love how there's 1000 forms of it, and they all call themselves "Umi" in reference to the original Field Spell.
It's a fun tradition to retain.

9. Kuriboh

Just cause. Classic card, and nice effect for alternate strategies.

10. Effect Veiler

It's a Tuner, it has a simple but effective effect. Nothing needed to be said, really.

As an honorable mention, I did consider Monster Reborn and Pot of Greed for being such iconic cards, but they would just become limited/banned again and are such lazy staples that we don't really need them.
MST and Heavy Storm also crossed my mind, but, again, they are too easy to use.
Maybe if I had an 11th card, MST could make it.

Wow pretty much all from the old days, huh? (not a bad thing, just interesting)

My list: (disclaimer - I never learned how pendulums function or have any such cards relating to that era in my collection)

1. Blue eyes white dragon --- there is no arguing that this is the most iconic monster in all of yugioh (sorry DM)
2. Dark Magician ---- he is a close second though
3. Exodia --- too iconic, and if mystic can cheat so can I
4. mirror force
5. Arcanite Magician
6. Gachi Gachi Gantesu (rename him if possible)
7. Dark Magican Girl --- too iconic (and hot?)
8. Dark Magician of Chaos
9. glow-up bulb
10. pot of avarice

honorable mentions: monster reborn, magic cylinder, stardust dragon, dark hole, MST, pot of greed, zombie master, master hyperion

Magic Cylinder... I didn't think about it, but I do like that card.
Less effective now as Monster effect protection is more important than ATK, but still nice.

And, yeah, a lot of my cards are more classic, but my inner duelist feels more connected to old stuff.
That's the stuff that was around when I was getting into the anime.
I think Effect Veiler made my list because I wanted something semi-modern.
I did consider Stardust Dragon, but didn't want 90% character monsters on my list and thought there might be something better. :D

Want to include some kind of elemental hero card, but I really can't think of a definining one that is individually remarkable... maybe bubbleman?

By the way, awesome topic. The stuff on here has definitly been not the most interesting, imo, for the past several months(years?). 10 points to MJ!

1 through 10: SWORDS OF REVEALING LIGHT!

Also since no ones mentioned these:
Gate Guardian (trash but awesome)
Lord of D (a classic that fell from power)
Egyptian Gods (made the anime)
DMK and 5HD (strongest cards ever)
Buster Blader (badass)
Gearfreid the iron knight (name is too cool)

Hmm... maybe just save the Field Spell, which would save the archetype as a whole while giving Yu-Gi-Oh
room to recreate the actual monsters in a more remarkable way?

Also, thanks. :)

Lord of D only fell from power because it was essentially useless.
It was totally trumped by REDMD, wasn't played much to begin with, and monsters that could be Special Summoned without it didn't need it.
Now I do like Lord of D and his flute, but if he was made these days, he wouldn't need a second card to use his effect.

Egyptian Gods are a good choice for pure icon status, although I wouldn't bring the extra Ras.

Your deck is 2/5 "Jar" monsters for no reason?
Also, Cup of Ace? Really? Of all the cards to save.
