so this first happend a couple of weeks ago, but now im actually concerned so phamtom forces keeps appearing as my latest game played in my continue tab even tho the last game i played was frontlines. i reset my cookies, changed my password, reset my pc. and it still happens.
i saw this image on pixiv and it made me wonder if jeanne d'arc wasn't forced to kill jack in apocrypha to free people from her noble phamtom could she have been a good mother to jack?
There are two scenes that intrigued me about Phantom Girl's attitude.
The first was when Superboy betrayed her and then grabbed her, trying to force her to swear allegiance to Zod.
She looks at Superboy and cries, then leaves the phantom zone.
The first time I saw this scene, I thought Zod had done something to his home planet.
Then I figured it was sad that he couldn't get Superboy out of the Phantom Zone.
But does it make sense for her to cry about it?
I don't see the others in the legion crying over something like that.
Soon after, there is another suspicious evidence, in the last episode 4x25, when the Saturn Girl goes to talk to her and is happy that she is alive, and that she saved Superboy.
The Phantom Girl sort of says: I'm afraid of...
Before concluding, she kind of pauses for a long time, like she's thinking about something, looks away, and says something totally different than what she originally planned to say: we haven't completely saved him yet.
It's very suggestive to me.
Remembering that when I say that Phamtom Girl may have feelings for Superboy, I don't mean romantic thoughts, but as if he was someone important to her, in the future.
Of course, we will only know if this is something important in a possible next season, if we actually have it.
lets say that the hunter association went all out in their efforts to exterminate the ants , so they hired some extra forces to help exterminate the ants , the the zodiacs were added , the phantom troupe were added ( with uvo, hisoka and illumi) , and silva and zeno were also hired , So the teams plan changed to
Team A: Phamtom troupe vs Youpi ( without chrollo)
Team B : zodiacs vs Pitou ( without ging )
Team C : knov , morel , knuckle , shoot , gon , killua , iklago, Meleoron and palm Vs Pouf
Team D : Netero , chrollo , zeno , ging vs Meruem
few notes : knov is fine , moral’s condition is 100% and gon can’t turn into an adult , and no netero using a nuke to take out Meruem
who do you think is going to win
"No....Asha,Not like this,.No....,not like this,I-I,at the end i was just useless,......i couldn't do anything,.......I'm sorry.....I'm sorry,if only i'd have......if only"[regret]
A loud heart-piercing cry can be heard.The cry itself signals the amount of pain the person is going through.Unbearable pain,it's even worse when you know you
somehow caused it.No
amount of physical pain can be compared with this.
We look at the sky from the viewpoint of...,lets say a bird,a high flying bird.The sky is an ocean type blue today.The birds are flying around aimlessly,there are small
clouds scattered throughout the whole sky,the sun is very bright and it hurts your eye just by looking at it like when you open your phone at midnight with full
brightness.Beneath the wonderful sky is the city named 'Kyoto' located in Japan.Our main focus goes to a school.The letters can't be seen properly but we can still read it.
It reads "Kyoto boarding school".The school itself is not that special but while looking at the school from a high perspective we can really capture the beauty of the school
as it's really outstanding in the neighbourhood.Our viewpoint lowers even down as we reach the class 2-C of kyoto boarding school.
"Yo! what's up wanna go karaoke today?"
"long time no see!"
"It looks like we are in the same class,yay!".There are lots of noises coming from the classroom.It
looks like a new year for the highschool students has started today.The
sensei comes in with an unpleased look on her face.We could probably say it's because of the noise in the class.The students stand up,bow and greet the teacher.
"Ohayo gosaimasu" they say which means 'good morning'.The students are chit-chatting with each other.The sensei shouts "Please be quiet for a sec, we have a transfer
student coming in today from Tokyo".Instead of being quiet the students make even more noise.
"From tokyo!,that's rare to see"
"I wonder if it's a boy or a girl" and other noises come out of the classroom.
A girl walked into the classroom gently.She had long and smooth black hair.She gave off a 'Royal' vibe.As
if she was the princess of a well renowned kingdom.She glanced
at the class.Her blue eyes were reflecting off the sun's light making it seem like her eyes were glowing.She was a bit on the white side.She was wearing an awkward smile
on her face most definitely due to her nervousness.The whole class which was so noisy just a second ago was now pin-drop silent.She was wearing the school's uniform
which is all black from top to bottom.She was wearing stocking's which were risen upto her thighs.She had well shaped breasts and a great complexion. Her looks were
reminiscent of what many would say a perfect body.The whole class was in awe due to her gorgeousness.
"She's the next queen of this school"
"If only i could be her boyfriend" and other faint noises could be heard.
"Please give us your introduction" the teacher asked her.
She wrote her name on the whiteboard.
"M-My name is A-Aori tsugumi"(nervous) she said whilst stumbling on her words a little.
"I came from Tokyo and i am new here so please treat me nicely" she added.
She showed a bit of uneasiness which came in stark contrast compared to the vibe of complete confidence while entering the class.
She was wondering why the class was so silent so she looked around and she saw the surprised faces of the students all around her.The thing is that she had the voice of
an angel.A soothing and pleasant voice that just feels good to your ears.
During all the commotion in the class.Our view point changes.It
's going toward a boy?Yes, a boy seated beside the window.Why him?Why not someone else?Hard to say.
But we'll find out sooner or later.Nothing special with the boy,tall and slim, with short black hair, green eyes, lots of freckles, and dimpled cheeks.
His eyes are also fixed on the girl.Well at this point whose aren't?
"please take a seat" the sensei asked politely with a soft voice as to not intimidate her on her very first day in a new school.
She takes a seat around the back of the room.She was wearing an awkward expression all the way to her seat.Class starts.Everybody gives thier introductions.Nothing
noteworthy happens this day at the school."Okairi, Hayaka nii-chan" "Ah,Your'e back?" "yes,i'm back nee-chan" Where are we? Looks like we're in the boy's house.
So his name is Hayaka.Ok.It
seems he has a little brother and a big sister.There appears to be no sign of their parents being around.So
maybe those 3 are living by
themselves?But that is just an assumption,Their parents might be coming anytime soon.Who knows?
"How was school today?" the sister asks.
"Aikawarazu"(Same as always in japanese)
"must be hard for you,huh?
"It's been like this for more than 2 years,i can deal with it"
"Nii-chan let's play" (playful) He says it while grabbing and rocking his brother's hand.
"Not right now Saru,nii-chan's exhausted" (tiredness) He says it with a look that says "i'm done for today i wanna sleep".
After a good pause Hayaka speaks up as to keep the conversation going.
"Oh btw a really pretty girl came in today she was like a celebrity,totally gorgeous!"
"Ooh Think u like her?" The sister says it while hitting his shoulder with the back of her elbow while maintaining a lenny face.
"Nah,there's a fine line between thinking someone is pretty and actually liking someone"
"If u say so..."
"Let's play nii-chan"(energetic)
"like i said,not right now"
"nii-chan's boring" It suddenly looks like his energy that he had a second ago just vanished into nowhere.
Saru is hitting his bro on the knees with his hand as if to say "i want to play anyways"
The sister gets up from the sofa and streches her body a little.
"let's eat dinner now, i've already prepared it" says the sister with an exhausted look on her face.
"Hai" the both say.
They go towards the dining table,sit down on the chair and eat the dinner.
There's fried tofu,omurice,kimchi,and other side dishes laid out beautifully on the table.
The sister has made food like a work of art.
Both have a pleased look on their faces while eating it.Saru is eating slowly so is the sister but Hayaka is just gobbling it up quite fast.Maybe he's too tired and hungry
from school?,maybe he has something to do after dinner?Who knows?
Pictures of Hayaka and his family from his chidhood.A study table,a small sized bed,an attached washroom,clothes scattered on the bed,some study materials and a box
with some leftover food laid out on the study table,the walls are painted blue,a red carpet laid out on the floor and a plain white ceiling with an AC attached to the side of
the ceiling.The room itself smells of a sweet flower.It
looks like he sprayed some air conditioner in the room.We can say with certainty that this is Hayaka's room.
We hear the door creaking,as a shadowy figure enters the room.The room doesn't have lights on.So
we can't surely say that this is Hayaka.The figure is moving around
aimlessly inside the room.-crrrreeeekkk-The door opens and another person enters the room.The person switches on the lights.-tick-.It's a boy.It
thing seems odd here.The shadowy figure is nowhere to be seen.It
's not Hayaka or rather it CAN'T be Hayaka because we just saw him coming through the door.Hayaka
breathes a sigh of relief and lays in the bed.Something or someone seems to be troubling him but he can't grasp what it is.Something feels odd.The room feels unusually
cold like how it would be in the winter but it's currently the middle of summer.The AC is switched off and windows are shut.so
,what could it be?A chill creeped up his
spine.He has a bad feeling,not just any bad feeling but a really bad feeling.He looks back on his day,Questions if something was weird today? He couldn't find an answer
to his question."Is it because today's a new year of highschool?Is it because of the new unusually beautiful transfer student?Was anything different from how it used to be
everyday?".No matter how much he thought about it he couldn't come to a conclusion.The uneasy feeling wont stop tingling him.He figured he should just stop thinking
about it.He took a quick bath to shake off his uneasiness and went to sleep right after.
Midnight strikes.We are currently in a dark room.Hayaka's room was quite a decent room for a single person but in comparison to this room his room was nothing.It
like comparing iron with gold or a commoner with a member of the royal family.The difference in thier status could immediately be seen.There was a queen-sized bed
around the corner of the room in which was lying the beautiful transfer student that came in today.Perfectly still,minimum movement of muscles,breathing just enough
to keep her alive just like the sleeping beauty.The room had a computer on a well crafted table,beside that,a little towards the left was a makeup spot with a silver lining
on the edge of the mirror.The room was painted also with a blue colour but more like a light or sky blue type.This was the only similar feature Aori and Hayaka had in
both their rooms. There was a AC bigger than that of Hayaka's attached to the side of the ceiling.The books were perfectly arranged on a large bookshelf along with every
other thing in the room.Everything else was also placed/arranged/made in a way that strengthened her princess type aura even more.It
was like a room which resembled
every girl's dream room.
The window are shut.The window opens a little,we can hear the wind and the eerie rustling of the trees,-swoosshh-A shadowy figure enters through the window.It
like this is the same shadowy figure that we saw earlier in Hayaka's room.The figure starts checking the ceiling,floor,walls of the room.It
doesn't make a single sound.For
some reason it looks inhuman.It
slowly approaches Aori who is sleeping peacefully in the bed.The figure starts to touch her face with the back of it's hand.The figure lays
on the bed just next to the girl.A good 10 minutes pass and then we can see the figure slowly disappearing.The figure has disappeared into nothingness.What is
happening?What is going on?Well,We don't know just yet but we do know that it is something supernatural,something out of this world.
(unravel starts playing)
'oshiete oshiete yo sono shikumi wo boku no nakani darega iru no'
'kowareta koware-' -bzzz-
The alarm is switched off now.
"it's morning already!?"
"i wanna sleep,goddamit"
It's 7:45 AM.Hayaka gets out of bed,puts both his hands on his nape and gives off a big yawn.He makes his bed and goes to the
washroom to respond to nature's call."Hayaka,breakfast is ready!" the sister shouts from below."I'm coming" Hayaka responds.He dresses up and goes downstairs.
"Huh?i don't see Saru anywhere,nee-chan" (surprised) Hayaka asks
"Oh,oka-san and otou-san came to pick him up, looks like he is staying with them for now"
"Ehh!?really?well,that was unexpected" (a bit sad) says Hayaka with a surprised expression on his face
"He'll come back soon enough don't worry"(cheerful)
"I'm not worrying"
"Anyways eat your breakfast for now"
"oka-c'mon bread and eggs again,nee-chan, it's been like a week of only bread and eggs for breakfast" (dissapointment) He has an unpleased look on his face.
"Mom and dad haven't sent us any money for the past month so no complaints"
"Also you should get a part time job,only my money is not enough for us" (suggestion)
"ok ok i'll get one.....someday" (doubtful)
Hayaka eats his breakfast.It
's still only 8'o clock.So
he decides he should take a quick bath before going to school.
Hayaka is off to school now.He is like a different person once he leaves his house.He doesn't talk much nor show many expressions on his face.His friendly and vibrant
behaviour from home semmed to be non-existent.He has almost reached school now.Just as he approaches the school gate a car which you would rarely see even in a
place like Kyoto was in front of his eyes.From the car came Aori looking absolutely stunning just like yesterday.Hayaka took a quick glance at her.He wasn't much
interested so he went towards the school.Woah,suddenly Hayaka fell down on his knees on the school ground.Suddenly,he feels as if his heart might burst out of his chest
along with the same uneasiness that was haunting him yesterday.People are witnessing the incident but noone seems to be helping him.The girl draws nearer to Hayaka
to try to help him.
"Don't go near him"
These were screams of the other people around the area .Aori was confused at first but she decided that she would not see a classmate in pain,so she went towards him.
As she came closer,Hayaka's heart started beating even faster.When she touched his back with her hand suddenly he fell unconcious.Laying on the ground face first.
Noone gave a single flying fuck about him.Aori contacted the nurses in the school to look at him.The nurses came with a stretcher and took him to the first aid room.
Darkness.A small ray of light enters through the darkness.The darkness is steadily getting lesser as the light enters.
"Oh,looks like your'e awake now" The nurse in a relieved tone.
"Wait,What happened?,Where am i?" Hayaka in a panicked state thinks to himself.
This is currently the Nurse's room.
"Umm,Why am i in the nurse's room?"
"Just as she said, you really dont remember anything"
"She?"He says with a surprised face.
"The transfer student?" He asked with visible confusion on his face.
"You suddenly fell unconcious in the school grounds and Tsugumi-chan contacted the nurses"
"I fell unconcious?" again with a confused tone.
"Yes we don't know what happened,but you suddenly fell unconcious it's hard to explain the reasons"
"Ok then, thanks for taking care of me" [thankful]
With this much of a small talk with the nurse,Hayaka started to move towards his class.
On his way he was getting weird stares from the little amount of students that were present there.He didn't seem to be bothered by it that much.As
as he wasn't bothered much he was still curious for the reason they were staring at him in such a passive aggressive manner.He slowly made his way to the class.
"May i come in?" with no expressions whatsoever.
"Come in" [annoyed] the teacher says.
He was still getting weird stares from the students even inside the class.He could feel the stares of the students gnawing at him.He glanced at Aori.Their eyes met for a
second.This was the first time that their eyes had met.Both looked away almost immediately.
It's lunch break now.Hayaka knew that Aori was the one who helped him when he was unconcious.So
,as much as he didn't want to ,he decided that he should thank
her.Of course,He didn't wanna thank her in front of everyone.It
'd be way too embarassing for him.So
,He looked for a time where she would be all by herself.
Aori is always all by herself.Not literally but as in she doesn't seem to have any kind of friends whom she can count on.Most of the boys are even scared to talk to her.
It's like she's pushing the students far with her 'princess type' aura.Some girls seem to talk to her quite often but she hasn't got anyone who can be by her side when
needed.This is the conclusion Hayaka drew out after observing her for 3 days.There wouldn't be a point in time where she would be all alone by herself.All the students
liked to admire her beauty from up close.Hayaka realized that they were something like polar opposites but even the poles lie on the same planet.He thought that they
were close but still too far.
Hayaka had enough.He gave up on thanking her.
"She wouldn't wanna be thanked by the likes of me anyways." Hayaka whispers to himself.
"I'm sure she helped me out of pity that no other was helping me."
"Wait,when was the last time someone helped me out anyways?" Hayaka chuckles a little.
"Well,i should still be grateful inside my heart" He says with his eyes closed.
Hayaka is now lying on the school grounds on such a place that is not impossible to find but where others wouldn't normally come.He is not in such a deep sleep.
But more like a quick nap.
He woke up to the chirping of fully fledged birds.He hadn't slept that long.He got a good but short nap.Just what he needed.He realized he hadn't completed all of his lunch.
He gobbled the leftovers up quite fast.He knew he would be late if he stayed there anymore.So
,he started heading towards the class.
There was a lot of commotion inside the classroom.As
much as hayaka didn't care,he was still wondering what the hell was going on.He entered the classroom just to find
more people laughing.They are laughing at a video.But,what can it be?He observed from a distance to know what the cause of all the laughter was.[confusion] The
person showed in the video seems to be Hayaka.Wait, it IS Hayaka.Somebody apparently recorded a video of him snoozing off during lunch time.[Expressionless]Hayaka
seemed completely unfazed by any of this,like it didn't even bother him in the slightest.Hayaka sat in his seat beside the window.A guy is approaching Hayaka.
"Look at you trying to act all cool by pretending not to care"[intimidation]
"Huh? no response,eh?" in an angry tone.
"Hey you,fucktard,Why're you ignoring me?" again in an angry tone
"Go away" Hayaka,surprisingly still in a calm tone.
At the drop of a hat,the boy grabbed hayaka by his collar and started swearing at him.Hayaka showed an exppression of discomfort.The guy clenched his fist,pulled his
arm backwards and gave a good punch to Hayaka.It
made Hayaka fall down from his seat.
"Think you can just shake 'that' away from 2 years ago as if nothing ever happened?"The guy says is a big rage.
"Oh yeah,I forgot that 'that' had happened 2 years ago"
" 'That' is the reason he's got no friends,right?"
And other similar voices come.
Aori looks at this in confusion.She doesn't know what's going on.She feels as if she is missing out on something.So
do we.What is going on?What is 'that'?We don't know
but time will slowly tell us.
"What's with all the commotion in the class?"The sensei said whilst entering the classroom.
"Why is Hayaka on the floor?" The sensei added.[confusion]
In the blink of an eye,the guy who punched Hayaka rushed towards his seat.All the commotion that was going on in the class had stopped in an instant.Hayaka got off
from the floor,picked up his chair and sat down as if nothing had happened.
"Nothing much,i just fell down on the floor,must be because of my clumsiness"Hayaka lied as naturally as he breathed.It
felt like he wanted to keep something at bay.
"Are you sure nothing's wrong?"She feels like as something has happened and tries to make Hayaka spit it out.
"I'm sure sensei you don't need to worry" in a calm tone.Damn,Hayaka seems like a pro at lying.
"Ok then,be more careful now"The sensei added.
"Sure will be" in a sarcastic tone.
Sensei started class after that.Nothing worth mentioning happened during the class.Except that the sensei had given a surprise test.Aori passed with flying colours
further solidifying the notion that she was perfect whereas Hayaka passed with average grades except in maths,He seems to be really good at maths.He's really your
average guy though you don't see an average guy anymore now.Average is the like the new failure in this time and age.
Another long day was over or at least that's what Hayaka thought until he realized something.Hayaka's extra classes started from today.His parents suggested or forced
might be a suitable word,him to take extra classes.There weren't many students around during extra classes.Out of the 40 students in the class 13 students were present
including Hayaka.Surprisingly enough,Aori was there.She wasn't in a NEED of extra classes.She got the 3rd highest marks in the whole class even after being new to the
school in today's surprise test.So
maybe she just likes hitting the books?Or she can't get to spend her money on anything.Anyways,the extra classes have started and
they're reading history at the moment.Hayaka seems bored but we can tell that he is still paying attention to the sensei and every little detail she has thrown out.Hayaka,
Aori and 3 others are definitely paying attention.One
is messing with other people without the teacher noticing like a person getting out of bed at 3:00 AM to eat without
their mom noticing.The others are asleep or talking to each other.There was a half an hour speech on history.The sensei has switched on to astronomy.Everyone's eyes are
at her now like they're witnessing a famous celebrity right in front of them.Who doesn't get exited when it's about space shit,right?After a good hour and thirty minutes
extra classes had ended.It
was starting to get dark now.It
's 7:00 PM.Hayaka starts heading towards his home.
As Hayaka was making his way towards his home,a dark figure appeared quite far towards the right.He looked at it with a cursory glance.It
didn't look human,it
resembled something like a monster,a ghoul or a phantom might be a good way to put it.It
started with a shimmer, as if the air was being warped and twisted. Then,
in a flash of pale, silvery light, a thing appeared.It
looked like a black cloud at the start but slowly it resembled a living creature.Bones were sticking out from the side of
the figure, a creepy expression at it's face,and blood dripping out of the head-like structure of it's 'body'.It was a lonely path to his house everyday but as he had to stay
in school for a longer period this time,there were no people to witness this incident.Upon seeing it the poor thing was terrified,he was so fucking horrified that he started
sweating like crazy.The sweat spread like a fungal disease,from his face to his neck and then to his hands.He was panicking,he didn't know what to do.His heart started
thumping like it had never before.He tries to run but makes up his mind to not run.He hid behind a pole,scared thinking that he would have been found out if he
He quietly observes the 'phamtom'.Yes,we're calling it that.A womanly figure appears with blood coming out of her mouth.Hair
infront of her face and no clothing.
She puts her hand inside her mouth and takes out a finger,a human's finger covered in blood.She starts writing something on the wall.The dark and the womanly figure
both vanished into nothingness.You
couldn't even imagine Hayaka's reaction upon seeing that.He was curious about what she wrote.Hayaka was moving as if he was
drunk.He had wobbly movements.He inched closer towards the writing on the wall.He observed it,As it was written with blood it was obviously hard to read it.It
'Go back'.After Hayaka looking at it for around 20 seconds the blood stains also dissapeared.The blood pouring down from the 'head' of the shadowy figure and also the
blood coming out of the girl's mouth had also disappeared.But wait,Hayaka has his hands on his head,he feels like he has seen this handwriting somewhere before.But
whose can it be?
Terrified,Hayaka tries to remember the handwriting.He can't.His mind is not thinking straight at the moment.He can hear his heart beating.Suddenly,He falls on his
knees.After seeing a blood-dripping 'phantom' and a terrifying woman who most likely eats humans,How can someone not be scarred?Hayaka gets up from his knees.
He's not the person to say "This was just a terrible nightmare" and forget about it.He decides he's going to get to the depths of this.Still making wobbly movements,Hayaka
makes his way towards his home.He keeps this incident all to himself.He eats dinner and goes towards his room.He picks a diary which looks like it hasn't been used in
years and strokes it with his hand to remove the dust particles.He opens it and writes 'Clues to the secret of the phantom'.
'first: The handwriting' and then he closes it.He lays on his bed and tries to think about it again."Was it a mere illusion?No it can't be."Hayaka talks to himself.
He keeps thinking about it over and over again in his head.
Hey guys, doin a quick regional report. Went to the SJ regionals today and it was 9 rounds and 370~ people. A little context, I didn't plan on actually playing this deck and since I already got my invite, I planned to play a fun deck (was gonna be Going 2nd Lair) and just have fun but literally got there at 8:30am and decided to try for the heck of it. So I put together a Mekk Knight Kaiju Luna OTK build that I've more or less been playing casually. I didn't have a lot of faith in my ability to play the deck lol.
ROUND 1 - Demise Virus Lair
It was the guy's first regionals. I always had this luck of having to play beginners at their first regionals.
G1: Funny enough, I tested this variant on Friday so I knew the ins and outs more or less. He starts with a set 4 into Demise while I opened zero handtraps. He draws into Dragon Shrine to dump Diabolos, normals Lilith and passes. I drew pretty awful from what I remember so I just set Scapegoat and passed. He uses Lilith to get a trap and summons a Diabolos, which he then uses for EEV and calls spells. I was able to make an okay recovery even under that but he gets out 2 Diabolos looping and I just lose there.
G2: Don't remember much but was able to control the board and eventually get into position to do a Saryuja play vs his like 4 backrow and Eater of Millions and Diabolos. Extremely risky but it paid off to get me Saryuja + MK Indigo Eclipse + MK Purple Nightfall. XYZ both MKs into Galaxy Eyes Tachyon, negated effs during battle phase and swung 3.3k into Eater and Diabolos.
G3: Not much here, I opened Called by the Grave and Ash. I chose to go first, so I set Called + Scapegoat and pass. He dumps Diabolos with Shrine and I shotgun the Called to banish it. A few turns later, he's unable to do anything and I just win.
ROUND 2 - ABC Cyber Dragon Galaxy Soldier
Cool guy. He didn't know a lot of rulings or interactions so I had to explain a lot of stuff. He ended up topping which was pretty nice.
G1: Spicy stuff here. I open 3 Scapegoat and we go back and forth on resources but doesn't give me a chance to kaiju the Buster so I just lose to his massive amount of resources and constant Buster.
G2: I do a fair bit better here. Sided in Called by the Grave. He got out Cyber Dragon Infinity and to out it, I had a Luna on the field to force him to send another copy of Infinity to the grave. I activated Slumber, he tried to negate with Infinity and I chained Called on the Infinity lol. I ended with Borreload and passed, but eventually he outed it and won the game.
ROUND 3 - Pendulum FTK
This guy played kinda weird. He kept slamming his cards down real fast and didn't give me a chance to respond. W/e, still smacked him lol.
G1: He made Firewall + Vortex and passed. I made a Borreload then I became an idiot and attempted to steal Vortex which he negated and I just lost from there lol.
G2: He goes first does a bunch of shenanigans to have a board of Electrumite, Absolute, and 2 other dark pend monsters. He then asks the judge to use bathroom and the judge is like "idurno is ur opp cool with it" and I'm like w/e so he goes and takes like 10 min and comes back. I suspect him of doing this so he can FTK and force a draw in time or something but maybe he jus really needed to go lol. He doesn't FTK after I Ash the Harmonizing and I go Instant Fusion which Vortex negated and Evenly'd him. Won right there.
G3: I let him go first and again, he goes bonkers and makes 3 Electrumite into Firewall + Vortex. I kaiju his ass and drop Raigeki. Make Saryuja + Dogoran to swing for a lot. He only has 2 scales to pen Darkwyrm and I end him next turn.
ROUND 4 - Pendulum Magician
G1: He kept a much more controlled board compared to the other Pend player I played so Kaijus and field wipes don't hurt him too bad. Eventually I drop a Borreload and pass. He makes Supreme King Dark Rebellion and hits me for 5k. I just autolose there lol.
G2: Same nutty board opening and I opened really bad. He kept Xiangke faceup and that just honestly won the game for him because I wasn't able to resolve any Mekk Knights. We trade resources and we end up with him as an empty board and me with Purple Nightfall. I made a rookie mistake to tag out with Nightfall and he just pendulum summoned a billion and swung for game lol.
ROUND 5 - 60 Card Dinos
I know the guys from locals. He used to come around. He was generally an okay-ish player so I didn't much but 60 card is honestly this deck's worst matchup because of Snow.
G1: He honestly just milled insane this game. He started with Charge that milled Wulf and Glow Up and searched Raiden. He summoned Wulf and summomed Glow Up. He normal summoned Raiden and milled Wulf and Snow lol. He makes a crazy board and ends with Trish, Omega, and Decode. I scoop from there.
G2: A real back and forth guy. I hit some critical Ashes on Double Evo and the Mekk Knights put in huge damage early on. I manage to push through Snow and UCT by keeping his field controlled with Luna and Kaijus. Evetually I made a Saryuja which he let go and won.
G3: He starts, activates Left Arm to banish his whole and I Ash lol. He extends the handshake and we both laugh about it.
ROUND 6 - True Draco Metalfoes
G1: He does a bunch of Metalfoes shenanigans to end up with Electrumite, spell+trap Master Peace, and Astrograph. I end up using Instant Fusion for Millenium Eyes under a link then summoning Phamtom Skyblaster to make Borreload. He eventually outed it with apocalypse and won from there.
G2: I go first and set 2 Scapegoat pass. He does less plays and apparently misplays. Ends with Astro and Electrumite on board. I flip Scapegoat and Raigeki him, summon Candina to search Lightstage to search and summon Lilybell, make Saryuja, and draw into the Mekk Knights and Kaiju for game.
G3: I think he misplays again and I take advantage of a relatively weak board to just make Saryuja, draw into a kaiju, summon it to swing over his Eletrumite and one of the Metalfoes fusions. Poked him for large damage, did some more shenanigans and game'd him my next turn.
ROUND 7 - Gem Knight FTK
G1: He opens first, says he can't do much but ends up FTKing me lol.
G2: He bricked and I went for Brilliant Fusion, Phantom Skyblaster, and Saryuja plays. I clear board with Raigeki and OTK.
G3: He tried to activate Gem Fusion but I Cyclone'd it. I also have Called by the Grave set. He sets 1 and passes while I slumber, bouncr Kaiju bacl with Luna and kept poking for massive damage.
ROUND 8 - Blue Eyes
I was surpised I was playing this kind of deck this deep into the tourney, but whatever it was a win.
G1: He started off with Ancient Stone and summons a bunch of stuff. Goes for Dark Matter and ends up being able to beat over most of my board. I misplay hard by not checking grave for Return and my field clear fizzles. I end up managing to make Borreload and Luna to control for game.
G2: I open brick and set Garnet. He summons a bazillion dragons and hits for game lol.
G3: This was a lot more back and forth. I hit some critical Trade-ins with Ash and he pushes through to make Dark Matter. He uses affect so it doesn't do much cept kill my monsters. I flipped Slumber, summoned Luna to bounce and won from that damage I was pushing
ROUND 9 - Dark Law
G1: He summoned TKRO, set 1 and passed. I opened Raigeki, Monster Reborn, and 2 Kaijus. I just make an OTK with Saryuja and win. It was incredibly broken hand I drew.
G2: I go first to set Cyclone and Scapegoat to pass. He makes Dark Law + Vyon with backrow and Honest Neos in hand. I Raigeki again and he just autoscoops there. It was awful lol.
Didn't intend to top but ending up doing so. Was pretty fun and everyone I played was more or less nice. The deck has a special place in my heart and honestly I think it's better than the Invoked variant. Resolving Saryuja is basically an OTK you do. Phantom Skyblaster and Brilliant Fusion were definitely insane. But the true MVP award in my deck goes to Raigeki, Dark Hole, and Raigeki. Prolly gonna post decklist tmmrw. Overall, very fun deck to win with.

The main deck worked surprisingly well today. The only handtraps you need are Evenly Matched and Ash Blossom. Some MVPs include Luna, Scapegoat, Kaijus, and Instant Fusion. If I was to play it again, however, I'd add in Mekk Knight Red Moon and Fairy Tail - Snow. The Trickstar engine was okay but, I managed to pull off Candina -> Lightstage -> Lilybell -> Brilliant -> make Saryuja a couple times today. Overall, I'd probably cut it in future iterations. World Legacy Secret was complete ass lol, the theory behind it failed. Extra deck was perfect but never made Underclock the whole day. Side deck sucked lol, only sided in Called, Cyclone, Macro, and Mind Control. Would def change a lot.
So I'm trying to get into tcg more and I had some question regarding some platinum set cards. I'm currently building a new deck with cards from xy sets. I'm running two vs seekers one from phamtom forces and one from an older platinum era set. Would I have to get a newer one and replace the one older one? Same for energies, I have some new fire energy but I'm also just using some old energy cards too. Is it still legal?
