Why is Red Eyes weaker?

Post by Ej1997 » Wed Sep 30, 2015 9:33 pm

I don't get it I really don't. When I think evil anti hero boss monster Red eyes just fits he bill so much better. He's scary and so freaking cool looking compared to blue eyes. And no offense to the movie but wouldn't it have seem more fitting to have Red Eyes Darkness Dragon destroy the pyramid of light? To me I'd just think shining would add more light.

Idk why this is bothering me so much it's just recently I've been tempted to build a red eyes deck and I'm working on it and while I watch the old anime on Netflix and I'm frustrated to hell at how the cooler looking dragon is getting the shaft.

I agree, but it does beg the question:
Both decks have enough direct support to make pure builds.
Which one would win?

If anyone is up for the pure red-eyes, I would be down for making the pure blue-eyes build. (Note: Blue-Eyes has lord/lady of D and their cards)

Canon-wise, Blue-Eyes represent power while Red-Eyes represent potential.

It all depends on who the more important character is, simple.
Maybe its time to get a signature picture of sorts >.> Max-rarity Yosenju's will be a thing!

As much as I like Blue-Eyes, I'd have to agree.
The current Red-Eyes support went for overkill, not only copying every
Blue-Eyes support card known to man, but then adding a boatload of other support.

Also, as nice as Blue-Eyes' support can be, there isn't even much of a Blue-Eyes archetype as there is Red-Eyes.
Most of Blue-Eyes' support cards aren't even named "Blue-Eyes".
Other than the main dragon, there's Shining Dragon, Malefic, and Ultimate Dragon.
That's it.

Right now, I wouldn't go pure Red-Eyes or Blue-Eyes.
I'd chaos them together.

Not true.
Pokemon is dead set determined to make Dragons look lame.
A good majority of their Dragons are sissy things or don't look like Dragons.
Meanwhile, Charizard, probably their most clasically dragonesque creature in all 1000 stupid monsters, is NOT a Dragon.
