Hello, I'm GoldenDragonRider (or GDR for short) and welcome to my Yugipedia user page. Here you will find information regarding my activities around this wiki and information about me as a Duelist. If you desire to communicate anything with me, head to my talk page.
My signature deck is my adorable "Fluffal" Deck. Aside from that I play "Predaplant", "Red-Eyes", "Rokket" and "Toon" decks in real life. When it comes to dueling online I use just about anything, but mainly prefer archetypes that appear in the anime.
|Preferred Types||Dragon or Fiend|
|Primary Dueling Platform||Master Duel|
I started playing Yu-Gi-Oh! in the early 2000s, with Starter Deck: Joey and I took a break around the middle of the GX Era. I didn't return until early 2015 after discovering that a friend of mine enjoyed the game. I loaded up my old "Toon" Deck in Yu-Gi-Oh! The Duelists of the Roses and got excited for Yu-Gi-Oh! again.
I had a lot of learning to do, Synchro, Xyz and Pendulum Summonings were all alien to me. So I read the rule book and looked for how to play Yu-Gi-Oh! online and found Dueling Network. I challenged my friend using a janky Dragon-Type Deck, only to be quickly curve stomped by his "Blackwing" Deck... I was not discouraged and desired to improve my skill and Decks through practice, various YugiTubers and the Yu-Gi-Oh! Wikia.
Some time later that year I moved from DN to YGOPRO: Dawn of a New Era. One evening I was dueling and after one of my matches, my opponent started a conversation with me, in the end they recommended watching the ARC-V anime, which I enjoyed a lot. After seeing Sora's "Fluffal"/"Frightfur" Deck I knew I had to build it, as they matched my ideal Deck style so perfectly. Since then my "Fluffal" deck has become my signature deck, over taking even my beloved "Toon" monsters.
I used to play Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links, starting with the first Welcome to Toon World! event in December 2016 and played consistently until early in the 5D's release in 2018. Sadly, as I became busier, I had less time to enjoy the game and it became harder to invest myself when I could play.
Originally I joined Yu-Gi-Oh! Wikia back in mid 2015, and I contributed there on and off over 2 and a half years. In late 2017, a discussion to fork the wiki over to here was made, as many of us contributors were becoming fed up with some of the choices Fandom was making and how it affected our wiki. The decision to leave was reached so we left and came here. Yugipedia officially became my home late January 2018. Like my peers here, I strive to present the most well presented and comprehensive information for all the Yu-Gi-Oh! community to enjoy and learn from.
My edits are usually centered around archetypes, trivia pages and general fixes/clean-ups. Other times I police for vandalism/incorrect information as a time filler by poking around unfamiliar users in the recent activity feed.
