OCG-TCG card image[edit]

The template has since been updated. All you need to do know is insert the card's name, and that's it. Example:

Hi. I'm confused: What is the card tips page for?--Dnahelix (talkcontribs) 01:20, January 19, 2018 (UTC)

Adding tips for using a card that is more specific to that card but not so complicated that it's unlikely to be successful. --MasterMarik (talkcontribs) 01:22, January 19, 2018 (UTC)

Ok........ Today I put 2 tips on the page of lee the world chalice fairy, and I'll give you that the first tip is not the easiest to pull off, simply because it hinges on drawing 2 specific cards, and one of them is at limited status. But the revival combo is like one of the best gimmicks of the archetype, aurum is a generic premature burial, and lee feeds aurum's effect by sending monsters from the hand to the GY. Better yet, in the typical flow of a world chalice combo, far more often than not, you will find yourself with this exact set-up: Aurum in the extra monster zone, pointing to at least another world chalice monster, and lee in grave. The perfect set up for my(well....not MY) combo. I play this deck, I'm not just trying this out. I know it works, and use it on a regular basis, irl and online. But don't take my word for it, just check out world chalice combos on YouTube and Reddit and others, this is one of the simplest and most obvious ones, mostly with the suggestions that I mentioned. --Dnahelix (talkcontribs) 01:59, January 19, 2018 (UTC)

It's not that they're difficult to pull off but that they're too generic. They can work in a lot of Decks so they're not good tips to add. --MasterMarik (talkcontribs) 02:54, January 19, 2018 (UTC)


Hey Marik. Have you checked Forum:Proposal to Fork to Yugipedia? Becasita Pendulum (talkcontribs) 22:34, January 20, 2018 (UTC)

I've heard about that. I don't understand why this is necessary. --MasterMarik (talkcontribs) 22:41, January 20, 2018 (UTC)

Hi, i'm confused: How well are you familiar with the game?--Dnahelix (talkcontribs) 13:51, January 23, 2018 (UTC)

Quite. Why?--MasterMarik (talkcontribs) 13:59, January 23, 2018 (UTC)

Well.........every single time I put a new tip, you strike it down, and I'm not coming up with those tips you know......I just try to build these decks and try to figure out what works and what doesn't. I put up the interaction between "yazi evil of the yang zing","destrudo" and "mare mare", and every modern zefra/yang zing control deck uses exactly the combo that I did put like 4 months ago, but you removed it. Then I put a simple world chalice combo the other day, and you strike it too. Now I put a combo to add consistency to dark magician decks, and you don't like it, so it's gone. I'm sorry if I seem a bit triggered, but I don't see why you keep so many dumb and irrelevant combos that can't be even used anymore because of master rule 4, but every time I put up a popular combo that I tried irl and online and streamlined it so it's not too wonky, fringe, or inconsistent, it gets removed......and only by you! Other moderators removed some of my tips, I talked to them, and they put them back, or at least a simpler version of them. or at least, they gave me an objective reason as to why it's not good enough for the tips page. You are the only one that has to have the last word, and with little more reason than what appears to be an arbitrary opinion... --Dnahelix (talkcontribs) 14:37, January 23, 2018 (UTC)

I like to discuss cards and tips, that's why I come to these pages, you know.....--Dnahelix (talkcontribs) 14:43, January 23, 2018 (UTC)

Your tip doesn't make it any easier to bring out Dark Magician the Dragon Knight. In fact, it takes more effort than just using Dark Magician and a vanilla Dragon-Type monster. Heck, using Eye of Timaeus is better still. --MasterMarik (talkcontribs) 14:52, January 23, 2018 (UTC)

let me explain how this combo works: in a DM deck, everyone plays "magicians navigation", I use it to summon DM from hand, and a "trump witch" from the deck, then tribute the witch by its own effect to get a copy of polymerization from deck or grave, /THEN I summon "imduk" from the extra deck, using the DM on the field as material, because DM decks don't have Dragon monsters that mesh naturally in the main deck/ then I either resummon DM from the geave with "eternal soul", or use a DM in hand as the other material to fusion summon "Dark Magician The Dragon Knight". the whole point is to avoid using "the eye of timaeus", because it cannot be searched for I an a standard DM deck, whereas all the card I mentioned in the combo are either readily searchable, or are usable in this combo without affecting the consistency of the deck, unlike "timaeus" which is a bad card to draw multiples of, and hence hinders the consistency.

"witch" can also be used as a scale, or used as a fusion card if drawn, either by tributing it or using it's pendulum effect. polymerization is a standalone card that can fusion summon from the hand, unlike other fusion cards in the deck

DM, eternal soul, and navigation are all staples, and are consistently used in every single DM duel.

you have to try this combo to figure out it's benefits. I give you that they may not be that obvious at first sight. but many people are suggesting running "link spider" in the deck just so the can resummon DM another time and trigger "dark magical circle" one more time, I wanted to point out to anyone considering link spider that imduk does mostly the same thing, plus it has this bonus interaction with the deck.--Dnahelix (talkcontribs) 15:32, January 23, 2018 (UTC)

That's a strategy you're unlikely to pull off in a given Duel. Link Spider sucks too. You're better off with just Eye of Timaeus and Dark Magician. Running 3 Eyes increases your chances you'll draw it, plus you can search Dark Magician more generically with Summoner's Art and bring it out for free with Ancient Rules. --MasterMarik (talkcontribs) 15:44, January 23, 2018 (UTC)

and we return to my original question: do you actually play the game? ;)--Dnahelix (talkcontribs) 15:57, January 23, 2018 (UTC)

I have played the game, just not recently. I keep up with the cards as they're released. --MasterMarik (talkcontribs) 15:59, January 23, 2018 (UTC)

well, if you'd like, i'll send you an actual picture of my irl deck. it's built to be as fast and consistent as possible, I acutally use summoner's art in it, to improve consistency, but cards like ancient rules and timaeus drag consistency down severely , because they cannot be searched, so you cannot use them when you want them, and probably not see them when needed forcing the player to rely on the luck of the draw instead of picking the actual cards they need from the deck directly regardless of what they draw. in my DM deck I use many other unpopular techs, that bring different, and more importantly, unexpected aspects to the deck that make hard for my opponent to deal with or even follow.

i'm not a fanboy that found out some cards work together and got excited!, i'm an actual player who uses these combos to win.

plus, let's for argument's sake say that my combo is bad, don't you think that each player has the right to decide if they want to give it a try or not? I don't think that everyone's deck should be the same, trust me, some people are doing crazy things with DM out there, mixing and matching it with other archetypes, and I think they should all come here and present their tips, and share their experiences with the deck too.

as a player, I come to the wikia to find out the potential of every card I play, to find out different, and unexpected ways to use them, that may turn out to serve my purpose, and I believe others come here for the same reason. and I wish that you at least ask for the opinion of someone with knowledge of the current DM deck, to try this and tell you if it's a good or bad tip.

and that, my dear friend, is the last i'll say about this subject, hopefully, my next contribution won't be removed......... :,(--Dnahelix (talkcontribs) 16:26, January 23, 2018 (UTC)
