    question, why do most spyral decks play tough in the side? I never found it that good, unless it’s needed for Double helix

    • Akira says:

      They played SPYRAL Tough as a searchable answer to Vanity’s Emptiness or Vanity’s Fiend. Play SPYRAL GEAR – Drone first to establish the top card of the opponent’s deck, and then follow with Double Summon to play SPYRAL Tough.

      Both SPYRAL GEAR – Drone and SPYRAL Tough are WIND attribute, so this works against Gozen Match as well.

      i was watching some ocg duels and spyrals was getting killed by skill drain/unending nightmare a lot. you’re def gonna wanna main/side twin twister/cyclone too. the tough is a great out for v friend no doubt (which should finally see more play again in a dino/spyral meta). /

    Do you have a Trickstar decklist for this week please ? And also how do you feel about Trickstar in the current metagame with now Spyral on the top and True Draco gone, are they still good, how should you play them now ?

    Do you think you’ll do a combo guide on Spyrals?

    • Akira says:

      I’m planning to do a combo article for SPYRAL, but it would probably be in a week or two later after the announcement of the OCG 2017.10 Limit Regulation.

    The percentages seem really off. What source are you using for the Decklists

    • Akira says:

      The tournaments included in each weekly tabulation are listed under References. These tabulations are often more than what is shown on ocg.xpg.jp because I have personally sourced out additional tournament results from the tournament organisers’ and players’ twitter accounts. These results are often missed out by ocg.xpg.jp.

      For this report, the following two tournaments were excluded because they disallowed the usage of cards from Extra Pack 2017 despite being held on its release weekend.
      • 2017-09-10 | Hatti CS × Heavy Storm Cup in Kagawa (Team Battle)
      • 2017-09-09 | Hatti CS × Heavy Storm Cup in Kagawa (Individual Battle)

      You might get a different percentage if you include them as they have an overwhelming numbers of True King Yang Zing Dinosaur without any SPYRAL.
