Conclusion

 

The 4-card combos are much more complex and non-intuitive, but the end state is vastly more impressive – you draw up to 4 additional cards, or put out an extra threat on the board.

Plenty of practice is necessary to execute the combos accurately and in a timely manner.

  1. Do you think the complexity of the combos will affect D/D/D’s performance in the competitive scene (requires high skill cap, combos take too much time to figure out, one small mistake can be fatal etc)?

  2. Can you really summon d/d/d dragonbane king beowulf with Alexander and Genghis even though the requirments for beowulf are” 1 D/D/D monster + 1 D/D monster?

  3. Little late to the party… Sorry. Any chance you could make like a comb recovery post? Something to show how you can/if you can recover from an opponent negation for example Veiler, or a Strike on Lamia, Swirl Slime, so on. Guess what I’m asking is if there is any way of doing something withouth actually finishing the combos?

  4. In combo 7 step 6, why can you choose to activate Gust Alexander as chain link 1 and then Ragnarok as chain link 2. Since Ragnarok was special summoned to the field, wouldn’t his effect have obligatory priority and therefore activated as chain link 1?

    • Both Alexander and Ragnarok are Optional Trigger Effects, so they have the same priority when building the Chain with respect to SEGOC. As such you can choose the order that they go on the Chain.

      This is similar to the successful Synchro Summon of Black Rose Dragon using Doppelwarrior – you can choose to have the Doppel effect on C1, and Black Rose effect on C2, so that the tokens are summoned after Black Rose wipe the field.

      Perhaps you might be confused with an old abolished rule about having priority to activate an Ignition Effect on a successful summon. My understanding is that there is no such thing as “obligatory priority” for Trigger Effects.

  5. Hey Akira Question. So dark contract with the gate effects says to add “D/D” monsters right. but for D/D/D Cursed King Siegfried he requires a tuner/non tuner + “D/D” monsters. I think you made a mistake for that one since you used “D/D/D”

  6. Wait Akira. Would that apply to skilled Dark magician? the effect for Skilled dark magician say to remove 3 counters and tribute it to special summon “dark Magician” so would I be allow to summon Dark Magician girl too?

    • No, Skilled Dark Magician says: Special Summon 1 “Dark Magician” from your hand, Deck, or Graveyard.
      In this case, it is looking for only the specific card “Dark Magician”.

      On the other hand, The Eye of Timaeus says: Target 1 “Dark Magician” monster you control.
      In this case, it is looking of any monsters with “Dark Magician” in their name. Dark Magician Girl is a valid target here.
