    What about droll and lock bird in TD Dino and deck lockdown in TD decks? What are they for?

    • xplay10 says:

      Deck Lockdown completely shuts down Dinos from playing, since they search off of Diagram and Oviraptor and summon from the deck with Babycerasaurus, Petiradon, and Miscellaneousaurus.

      Droll & Lock Bird is the alt. to Deck Lockdown that TD Dino can utilize to slowdown TD, though isn’t a popular choice. Typically, it’s better to use cards such as Mask of Restrict and Different Dimension Ground vs TD.

    • Akira says:

      True Draco plays a lot of cards that search or draw from the deck – Terraforming, Dragonic Diagram, Pot of Duality, Pot of Desires, Card of Demise.
      Droll & Lock Bird prevents those cards from being activated, so there is a very high chance that you could stop their play for the turn. A typical play is activating Droll & Lock Bird right after they resolve Terraforming, and that would stop them from activating the effect of Dragonic Diagram.

      Deck Lockdown performs a similar role against True King Dinosaur.
      It stops effects that search for a card and add it to hand – Terraforming, Dragonic Diagram, Fossil Dig.
      But it also stops effect that Special Summons from the Main Deck – Petiranodon, Babycerasaurus, Miscellaneousaurus.

      So, what are best options to side for TD Dino against TD except mask of restrict? I guess DDG is mainly against TD dino and infernoids, dont see how would it work against TD. I saw many side techs like skull meister, fog king, forbidden chalice. I guess chalice is decent so do fog king. But what is your opinion on that?

    • Akira says:

      It’s barely 2-3 weeks into this format, and there’s simply not enough games to conclusively say what are the “best” to side. But so far, Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit and Forbidden Chalice are popular Side Deck choices.

      Also, these are in addition to Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring and Dogoran, the Mad Flame Kaiju that are already in the Main Deck. The Main Deck is actually quite decent against True Draco, so it doesn’t need that many Side Deck cards.

    Exists other option to Gateway or Magical Mid-Breaker Field to lock the opponent?
