23rd March Update


The Card Trader’s inventory has been updated with some new additions to his card pool!

Duel Links Card: Super%20Solar%20Nutrient
Duel Links Card: Confronting%20the%20%22C%22
Duel Links Card: Danipon

Top Player Council Thoughts

superforms says:

Super Solar Nutrient (SR): The only relevant Plant decks right now are Sylvans and Aromages. Both can tribute Rose Lover with this, but neither has a good special summon target (Aromage Bergamot and Sylvan Guardioak are both level 6, and few Sylvan decks use Sylvan Lotuswain). Tributing a Rose Lover to grab another Rose Lover thins the deck and gets multiple Rose Lovers into the graveyard if Super Solar Nutrient is removed. Alternative plays include tributing Sylvan Komushroomo for to turbo out World Carrotweight Champion, or tributing a Aromage Jasmine for a Aromage Rosemary. It is not likely that this card will be used in top-tier versions of either deck, although it will be most interesting to test with Sylvans.

Confronting the “C” (SR): The decks on the tier list that use their Extra Decks are Fusion Destiny Heroes and Gladiator Beasts which are both Tier 3. Pretty ineffective wall vs Destiny Heroes, but possibly annoying to Gladiators (being immune to Gladiator Beast Murmillo and walling Gladiator Beast Essedarii). Not a great card right now; maybe better in the future as the Extra Deck becomes more relevant.

Danipon (R): Has to be destroyed by battle to activate its effect, which is unfortunate. It doesn’t have any great search targets either: Grasschopper, Magical Merchant, Man-Eater Bug; none of which are used in a top-tier deck.

Required Items

  • Super Solar Nutrient: 45,000 Gold, 6 SR Jewel, 60 Stone of Spell
  • Confronting the “C”: 40,000 Gold, 5 SR Jewel, 50 Stone of Earth
  • Danipon: 16,000 Gold, 30 R Jewel, 30 Stone of Earth

7th March Update


The Card Trader’s inventory has been updated with some new additions to his card pool!

Duel Links Card: Swamp%20Mirrorer
Duel Links Card: Divine%20Dragon%20Aquabizarre
Duel Links Card: The%20Dragon%20Dwelling%20in%20the%20Deep

Top Player Council Thoughts

superforms says: The only interesting one is Swamp Mirrorer, the other two are trash.

Potential uses:

Red-Eyes Slash decks; can be a Warrior for Red-Eyes Slash Dragon or a Dragon for the Buster Blader, the Dragon Destroyer Swordsman fusion, but can’t be equipped to Red-Eyes Slash Dragon from the grave.

Hazy Flame decks; similar but slower than Dynatherium as a special summon and Beast Rising fodder.

Dragon decks; sort of synergizes with the leaked Dragon structure deck since it can be fodder for the Felgrand monsters’ effects and works with Dragon’s Rebirth (serving a similar role to Ruins of the Divine Dragon Lords).

Overall Swamp Mirrorer feels like a nice (but slow) consistency piece in decks that rely on specific fusion or tribute summons to get going. Likely will not have an impact on the current meta but has future potential.

Required Items

  • Swamp Mirrorer: 110,000 Gold, 4 UR Jewel, 70 Stone of Trap
  • Divine Dragon Aquabizarre: 39,000 Gold, 5 SR Jewel, 55 Stone of Water
  • The Dragon Dwelling in the Deep: 15,000 Gold, 40 R Jewel, 40 Stone of Water

Summary

  • The sea serpent cards are bad and will likely have no place in current water builds.
  • Swamp Mirrorer has much potential in existing decks and in future as well as compatibility with the datamined Dragon Structure Deck.

The Card Trader is unlocked at Stage 7 and the cards in stock rotate every 8 hours.
