Top Player Council Thoughts

“Thoughts on 2nd Jinzo?”

wayne kenoff:

Cool addition. Could see play in Monarchs. As well as possibly making Jinzo based decks meta relevant.

tomvdelzen:

This card can be really good in a certain meta and in side decks. Really usefull to get 2 copies of this card.

Rafa:

This is obvious, but 2 side Jinzo will be a more consistent way of screwing Amazoness, especially Vampire making use since the deck can facilitate tributing summoning monsters.

“Thoughts on Cyber Energy Amplified?”

ShinySopheon:

Horrible! Not even good for farming like Konami tries to make you believe.

wayne kenoff:

Could be used in Jinzo centric deck but doesn’t seem worth it compared to other skills.

tomvdelzen:

Trash!

Rafa:

Just a meme.


“Thoughts on Psychic Ace?”

ShinySopheon:

Not great.

wayne kenoff:

Easily summonable with Teleport. Creating a pop effect when you summon your Jinzo. Not bad in my opinion.

tomvdelzen:

Not good.

Rafa:

You can make interesting plays with this card, but do not see it becoming meta in any way .

“Thoughts on Goblin Marauding Squad?”

ShinySopheon:

Awful!

wayne kenoff:

🚮.

tomvdelzen:

Trash!

Rafa:

Just a bad card with high ATK.


“Thoughts on Risebell the Star Adjuster?”

ShinySopheon:

Meh!

wayne kenoff:

Maybe future potential.

tomvdelzen:

Trash!

Rafa:

Just bad.

“Thoughts on Goblin of Greed?”

ShinySopheon:

Trash!

wayne kenoff:

Finally, the counter to Wiz, Sage Fur Hire we have all been waiting for Kappa.

tomvdelzen:

Maybe a side deck card for the future but I think it’s trash.

Rafa:

Maybe we’ll see this card on some side deck someday.


Game Mats

These are the game mats that can be obtained! The first and second are from summoning Jinzo 100 times and getting Espa Roba to level 12 respectively. The third is obtained by reaching 400,000 cumulative points and the last will likely be given when the event is over.

Mat Farm Deck

Here’s a pretty standard The Creator deck to summon Jinzo 100 times to get the game mat!

Strategy

  • Use Veil of Darkness to draw your combo faster and dump Jinzo in the graveyard.
  • Once you have Jinzo and The Creator on the field, use The Unfriendly Amazon to remove it each turn.
  • Discard Outstanding Dog Marron to re-summon Jinzo each turn.
  • Use Graceful Tear to give Localized Tornado to your opponent (level 10 gate duelist) to prevent them decking out.

Replacements

  • The only core cards are The Creator and Jinzo. The majority of cards can be replaced:
    • All the dark attribute monsters can be replaced.
    • The Unfriendly AmazonInfernal Dragon (you will need to duel a level 20 duelist instead since they set monsters).
    • Outstanding Dog MarronSword of Deep-Seated.
    • Veil of DarknessHeart of the Underdog.
    • Graceful TearGift Exchange.
    • Localized TornadoAmazoness Trainee (you will need to duel a level 20 duelist instead since they set monsters).
