actually i really looking forward for the new harpie support...i really want my harpie deck better right now its alright but its just a fun deck do to harpie still kinda suck...i was working on making it though harpie and hero mix but so far its a decent deck but still in progress tweaking...
I wish they had released more Harpie support before they changed the layout of the cards. I would have loved to build a solid Harpie deck with some of the new Harpie support cards that are coming out in the newest set. Sigh, it seems that the most interesting cards and archetypes are being released in the Zexal era, which is the only era of Yu-Gi-Oh that I cannot get into. Xyz monsters seem to be the biggest problem for me; they just seem so incredibly redundant. I have several that I've collected merely for their artwork, but I've never used them for the reason I explained before; I just have no real need for them in my decks. Synchros on the other hand, are quite interesting. Still not my favorite type of card, but I use them from time to time.
Anyway, what's the newest SJA promo card? *Hopes it's not another Xyz monster*
Look at the last few SJ promos.
JUMP-EN059 Number 30: Acid Golem of Destruction
JUMP-EN060 Number 16: Shock Master
JUMP-EN061 Slifer the Sky Dragon
JUMP-EN062 Superdreadnought Rail Cannon Gustav Max
JUMP-EN063 Number 40: Gimmick Puppet of Strings
JUMP-EN064 Number 88: Gimmick Puppet of Leo (<-the newest promo)
I'm guessing that JUMP-EN065 might going to be No. 15 Gimmick Puppet - Giant Killer, whose name in the TCG may be "Number 15: Gimmick Puppet of Grinder", if we look at the pattern.
And why "Grinder"? Because in the dub version of the anime, the card is called as "Giant Grinder" instead of "Giant Killer".

well I recall Kevin once asked about cards from the anime we want to see getting a print, iirc at that time Phoenix Formation is mentioned repeatedly, though in the end it was Miracle Contact that gets a print, alongside Advanced Dark (which nobody asks lol)
So I think Phoenix Formation still has a chance, if Konami wants to print more old anime cards.
Madolche is also a good one, if it gets more powerful support.
And Windrose completes the Elemental Lords.
It has Harpie's Feather Duster's effect.
Darn, It's effect isn't bad, but it's not really that great either. Starlight, Torrential, Bottomless, Warning etc. can all really hurt in response to this card's effect/summon.
I had a hunch it was going to have an effect dealing with spells/traps. But I was hoping for an effect like Cold Wave instead.
I'm surprised you all haven't brought up the new Spellbook card yet: Divine Judgement of the Spellbooks
This can really make Spellbooks/Prophecy go so plus.
Here's just one example.

The Suppressor Dragons from the wind set are getting support. It looks good.
So yeah good luck with any wind deck ever made. If any even gets any amount of hype we can be sure this card will be sided in 2/3s and the duel becomes protect the winds.
Also anyone got any predictions on the banlist? I haven't been following tournaments lately and it seems like the list also takes a little consideration for the TCG now like hitting TGU before it was released in Japan.

As for the Banlist, the Decks that will be hit most people agree on, but WHAT they will hit in them is a different story.
The Decks everyone seems to agree will be hit are:
Dino-Rabbit (Either Rabbit itself, or maybe the Dino Xyzs, more likely Rabbit)
Mermail (Either Atlantean Dragoons or Genex Undine, most people agree it is way too early to limit any of the Mermails themselves)
Wind-Up (Magician or Shark or both to stop the OTK)
Random cards people think will be banned: Card destruction, Gateway/Six Samurai, Reborn, BLS, Avarice, maybe a few others I am forgetting.
Poisonous Winds is a Spell, that prevents players from SS-ing WIND monsters (yeah, good luck with being restricted to just a Normal Summon and Flip Summon in today's meta), and as a bonus, also reduce the ATK of any WIND monsters on the field by 500, usually makes it low enough for them to be destroyed by smaller stuffs.
Poisonous Winds is definitely worse than the Mirrors, and it hits the Attribute that has the least amount of support (WIND). DARK and LIGHT at least have a ton of supports.
A Wind Deck doesn't have to Xyz/Synchro into Wind monsters. Maybe if it were a pure Wind Deck.
I for one, would much rather be unable to Xyz my Wind Monsters than have my effects entirely negated.
Dino/Macro Rabbit - I think Macro Cosmos should go to 1, most people only play 2 in their deck. I just think the card is unhealthy for the game.
Rabbit could get limited, but it would completely kill any deck that uses rabbit such as Verz/Evilswarm rabbit, Machine Rabbit, Brotherhood Rabbit etc.
Maybe limit Laggia.
Mermail-Atlanteans - I agree with your choices.
Wind-Up - Again I agree. A part of the SharkMagician combo needs to get hit and maybe semi-limit Factory too.
Dark Worlds - Card Destruction/Dragged down is something I would like to see get hit, if not those maybe Snoww or Grapha.
They were practically untouched last time so I wonder if it'll stay that way.
Gateway - Yes I would love to see that get banned, but I'm not giving my hopes up. (I always hate when my friend's Six Sams open first turn Gateway.)
Reborn and BLS have both been here quite a while now.
Dark Hole + Reborn is extremely powerful and BLS is BLS. They are contenders for getting banned, but we'll see. (I personally like them)
Rekindling - Semi-limited. With all of the new fire decks out there this can be abused.
Some random thoughts:
Tsukuyomi - Semi-Limited. It didn't make much of a impact at all.
Glad. Beast Bestiari -Semi-Limited
BW Gale - Semi-Limited
Lonfire Blossom - Semi-Limited. (I think a slight boost to plants would be good, but I don't know the best way to do that.)
Mezuki - Semi-Limited. Zombies haven't been doing too well.
Chaos Sorcerer - Semi-Limited (If BLS is banned)
One Day of Peace - Semi-Limited

All it does it hurts how likely you are to draw into it.
And unfortunately Konami has said Bestiari will be staying where it is.
"Poor Bestiari has sat on the Limited List for a long time. Not because of what he does, but because he’s a component of Gladiator Beast Gyzarus. We’d like to give Gladiator Beasts a boost at the tournament level. But de-limiting Bestiari doesn’t give Gladiator Beasts a boost. It just gives the Gyzarus spam deck a boost. Which isn’t what we want to do. So we’re still pondering this conundrum."
I really wish it were the opposite, but yeah.

Well they should make another Glad beast that works like Gyzarus and uses Bestiari but instead of destroying two, it can bounce or spin one card to the top of the deck then they can limit/ban gyzarus and then semi Besiari. Let's be honest Gyzarus is barely any more broken than the other boss monsters nowadays.
Gold Sarcophagus+this seems like a good way to get rabbit online ASAP
If they want to limit the Gyzarus spam, then limit the Gyzarus itself, not Bestiari -_-
Banning Gateway may going to severely hamper the usage of the SixSam Decks, so I guess at most they'll just Limit it.
