True Draco

Magic Deflector is a very niche tech card for stopping Dragonic Diagram and Set Rotation.

It is a very metagame-specific tech choice that might lose its relevant when the metagame shifts after Code of the Duelist.


True King Dinosaur

It seems that Eradicator Epidemic Virus was just a fad as most players are no longer running it.

Although Nekomaru (猫丸) had 2 copies in his Side Deck, he mentioned that he barely used his Side Deck.



The initial weeks of OCG 2017.04 has settled mainly among Demise True Draco, True King Dinosaur and True Draco Metalfoes Kozmo.

Code of the Duelist will be released later this week, and we might experience a metagame shift.

YOT Hong Kong 2017 is happening this weekend and it will be the very first major tournament to be held with Code of the Duelist available. Follow us at Yu-Gi-Oh! Events for coverage of YOT Hong Kong 2017.

    Why people dont play typhoon in TD main deck. It looks great in TD deck against TD to pop enemy dragonic

    • Michael Aninang says:

      Because it can’t respond to Diagram immediately as it requires another spell/trap to be present on the field, and that doesn’t always happen, which may lead to it being a useless brick
