It's no secret that Numeron Network Number S0: Utopic Zexal has become a must-beat threat in modern Yu-Gi-Oh. The release of Battle of Legends: Armageddon saw Eldlich the Golden Lord incorporate the Turn 1 Zexal lock, making one of the strongest decks of today even stronger.

Today's video is all about how you can still play your favorite deck and add a few cards that counter the Zexal lock, without throwing you off your game in other matchups. Doug's here to discuss your options, so check out the video below!

There are plenty of cards that can help you defeat the lock without defeating your budget. One of the most important aspects of choosing your counters is making sure your tech picks are still playable against other strategies. No local's going to be purely Numeron Eldlich, so running cards that are dead in your hand in other matchups will hurt you in the long run. Before you commit to just one strategy, make sure you've tested against a variety of decks so you can be prepared for anything!
