Top Player Council Thoughts

What are your thoughts on Yusei’s level-ups/drop rewards/unique skills?”

Negative1: Junk Berserker and his signer dragon skill are nice… and that’s about it.

“What are your thoughts on Crow’s level-ups/drop rewards/unique skills?”

Negative1: I don’t think I’ve ever been more disappointed in Konami than I am right now.

“What are your thoughts on Akiza’s level-ups/drop rewards/unique skills?”

Negative1: Dark Verger has potential, which is saying a lot when compared to the other rewards. Black Rose Dragon is good but the skill isn’t. I have my doubts that something good will come from it.

“What are your thoughts on Leo’s level-ups/drop rewards/unique skills?”

Negative1: Morphtronics are bad by design; it’s the only logical answer as to why Konami would release a deck like this.

“What are your thoughts on Luna’s level-ups/drop rewards/unique skills?”

Negative1: I’ve seen more value in Mini Box Normals than in any of her cards. The Ancient Fairy Dragon skill is the only thing here that could be remotely useful.
