Is anyone else blown away by the fact that it's already February?!

The month of January flew by at a pace I can't even fathom. There were Remote Duel Invitational Qualifiers, a Remote Duel Extravaganza, and a host of online events, plus the release of Legendary Duelists: Season 2. It all made for a packed few weeks, at a time of year when the calendar's often pretty blank.

It was really interesting to see how the results from the Remote Duel Invitational Qualifiers changed the public perception of competition, especially the fact that Virtual World absolutely dominated the different tournaments. Virtual World either won, or was in the Finals, of almost every event.

Then, one week later, the Remote Duel Extravaganza shook up a lot of player's new ideas of the format, showing that the game isn't nearly as set in stone as many had come to believe. Invoked Eldlich scored a breakout performance winning the Extravaganza main event; nobody was planning for that matchup, and the deck's well positioned to combat many of the standard lines of play in the Drytron and Virtual World strategies. Check it out!

The Decks To Beat

Despite less than stellar showings in both the Remote Duel Invitational Qualifiers and the Remote Duel Extravaganza,I think it's still commonly accepted that the deck to beat is Drytron. I explained the basics of the Drytron deck in the December Metagame Recap, and a lot of what was said then still holds true now.

The deck really hasn't changed much over the past couple of weeks, with the bulk of the differences just being minor re-specs to help tune the deck for new shifts in competition. For example, Noah Jymison opted to drop Vanity's Ruler in the January Extravaganza, as you can see in his list.

Meanwhile Virtual World's continued to become more optimized day over day, with Mike Thomas making a fantastic showing in the ATTACK OF THE GIANT CARD!! public event at the Extravaganza, alongside plenty of other successful Virtual World players in the last month. Like Drytron, the deck really hasn't seen many changes in the past few weeks, and with good reason: the strategy hinges on consistently getting you to the Virtual World engine cards as repeatedly and consistently as possible, leading to a deck list with lots of irreplaceable three-ofs.

That may change going into Blazing Vortex, but for now the deck's essentially the same as it was last year. Check out Thomas's undefeated Giant Card list, which also snagged him his invite for the next Remote Duel Invitational Qualifier thanks to a strong finish in the Extravaganza main event as well!

Eldlich variants had a tremendous amount of success in January, with Numeron, Zoodiac, and Invoked builds all crushing competition in a variety of tournaments. Numeron Eldlich had a great showing in several Remote Duel Invitational Qualifiers, including my own, where it took 2nd Place! With everyone so focused on trying to beat the suffocating power of the Drytron strategy, as well as the problems that Virtual World can present, decks that are more focused on spells and traps - decks that often try to win by grinding out games by exchanging cards with the opponent - have more room to shine.

Bryan Cloe shook up the competitive scene when he went 7-0-1 with Invoked Eldlich. It's an older strategy that leverages cards like Magicians' Souls alongside Eldlich cards and Invoked Fusions, to win with a mix of negations, interruptions, and low investment trades. It's not fancy, and that's a good thing. If you remember my article on "K.I.S.S." deck building, the build Cloe piloted showcases that theory perfectly.

The game plan? Fusion Summon a lot, and grind your opponent out with trap cards. No fancy combos, no intricate lines of play to memorize: just simple, clean Yu-Gi-Oh. This type of deck's great for a longer, more endurance-focused tournament, and that's largely what these big Remote Duel events have shaped up to be; if you play something like this you can reserve your mental faculties and make more informed decisions when the pressure's on, instead of feeling a ton of fatigue as you constantly try to remember what combo you should play where.

Josh Bonnici scored another breakout finish, piloting Sky Striker Eldlich. The Eldlich deck doesn't really plan to Normal Summon anything, so it's fantastic with the Sky Striker cards; the hybrid strategy's especially good on defense, and it's got lots of ways to interrupt Drytron and Virtual World and keep them from creating their signature set-ups.

Better yet, that disruption requires little to no investment on your part. Conquistador of the Golden Land and Huaquero of the Golden Land are incredibly efficient and help you Link Climb to those higher break points alongside the Sky Strikers. Check out Bonnici's list!

Decks You Should Avoid

Much like last month, there aren't really any decks that are hiding big pitfalls right now. Especially after the month of shakeups, it seems like anything can do well! Rather than listing decks to avoid, I'd simply try to pass on strategies that lose to the commonly played silver bullets of the format, currently appearing in Side Decks.

Decks like Dinosaurs will struggle to see meaningful success, because Droll & Lock Bird is so common. Cards like Droll & Lock Bird and Artifact Lancea are seeing more play, and that's generally a bad time for Dinos. Dragon Link also falls into this category, because so many of the deck's core combos are so fragile.

Droll & Lock Bird

You also may start to have issues playing any trap-based decks. Those strategies have been pretty safe bets over the last few weeks because they were unpredictable underdogs that were less common in most metagames.

But players are aware that Eldlich's on the rise, and cards like Cosmic Cyclone are starting to filter back into competition as the landscape develops and matures. Over time those decks will lose their surprise factor, and that's going to make them significantly more difficult to play. 

Decks You Should Respect

Even though it's extremely volatile, the Prank-Kids Adamancipator deck really deserves respect. If your opponent's running Prank-Kids, knows what they're doing, and they're not bricking out, you might have an uphill battle ahead of you. Ending on a Borreload Savage Dragon with two or more counters, an Apollousa, Bow of the Goddess with two or more negations, and another interruption is extremely powerful. Cards like Nibiru, the Primal Being are incredibly powerful against those types of strategies, although they also tend to collapse in on themselves if they run into the wrong conditions.

Jibriel Braithwaite just topped the Luxury Championship X tournament with this build, teching a pair of Madolche Petingcessoeur.

If this past month has taught us anything, it's that the current format's wide open to a vast range of strategies; almost anything can succeed with some luck, and some determination. We've even seen a "pure" Numeron deck reach the Top Cut of the Extravaganza, leveraging the raw power of the Numeron cards on their own, and capitalizing on the fact that the best hand traps currently do next to nothing to stop that deck's plays.

Emmanuel Lilly finished in the Top 4 with this list...
