Hello again, duelists! It feels like it was just yesterday that I was writing my first Metagame Recap, that one covering the game in the month of October, but here we are again! It's been a whirlwind month, largely thanks to the release of Phantom Rage and the resulting shakeup in the format. Today, we're going to go over some of the changes that have been occurring in competitive play, so that you can be as prepared as possible to combat them at your remote Yu-Gi-Oh Day! tournaments next week.

There were some small, but very important shifts that happened this month, and in each section of today's discussion, I'll be discussing the Side Deck cards you'll need to consider so that you're ready for the most important matchups in upcoming events. Thanks to LCS 8 and the November Remote Duel Extravaganza, we have some good data to look at showing the progression of the format.

Let's get started, and let's dig in with the breakout star of Phantom Rage.

Virtually Identical

Virtual World took the format by storm in the online Luxury Championship Series 8 tournament, taking an astounding 7 seats in the Top 16, with the weekend's most successful build going entirely undefeated as well! The finals of the LCS was a Virtual World mirror match, which shows just how powerful the deck can be.

While Virtual World may be very new, that hasn't stopped players from quickly moving forward to optimize the deck in its current form. Hanko did a great article breaking down the basics of the deck earlier this month, so I don't need to go into detail on the fundamentals. But it's important to note: now that players have started to get familiar with how the deck works and what its weaknesses are, we're already seeing its successes begin to diminish.

That said, the Virtual World engine's highly consistent. You run three copies of all the core cards, so it's easy to use cards like Pot of Desires to boost your chance of resolving powerful combos, usually ending on True King of All Calamities. When you're facing off against Virtual World, it's important to use Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring on Virtual World Mai-Hime - Lulu whenever possible, and save cards like Nibiru, the Primal Being for the moment right before your opponent can summon True King of All Calamities. Cards like D.D. Crow and Skull Meister are also fantastic against Virtual World, since they can hit the graveyard and cut off valuable resources.

By the same token, Artifact Lancea extremely valuable as well if you can back it up with additional defensive cards. Cutting your opponent off from banishing cards can end their turn outright, though I only recommend a card like this if you're playing a deck that can winn the game quickly. Otherwise, your opponent will just go right back into their plan and you'll be a sorry soul.

Definitely check out some of the articles and videos about Virtual World. Knowing this matchup's worth every second you'll spend studying.

Dragon Link Is Back

If the results of LCS 8 were to be taken at face value, you'd think Dragon Link had fallen out of fashion. But that seems untrue, as there was a noticeable upswing in the number of Dragon Link players anyways.

One of the recent trends amongst Dragon Link duelists was a higher number of players using extra copies of Dragunity Phalanx instead of just one. The idea is that if you run multiple copies, you can combo off at full power regardless of whether or not you draw Dragunity Phalanx, which has some merit. However, by running more Dragunity Phalanx you increase the odds of seeing that subpar draw. I disagree with the trend, and the most successful builds from LCS 8 and the Yu-Gi-Oh! Extravaganza last weekend were both still playing the slimmer Dragunity lineup.

Given the uptick of interest in cards like Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit - more on that later! - I'd personally consider playing a copy of Dragon Ravine again. Paulie Aronson has continued to run Dragon Ravine in his 60-card Dragon Link build, and it showed resounding success this month. By playing a heavy deck count featuring cards like Dragon Ravine and more Rokkets, you can punish the resolution of Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit and continue along your merry way.

Now, one of the interesting things to note is that Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit still shines in this matchup, as well as cards like Token Collector, so you're going to want to Side Deck them for Dragon Link. From there, it just comes down to making sure you understand the lines of play and make good reads on the Dragon Link player's hand based on that understanding, so you can use your defensive cards most efficiently.

Dinosaurs And Infernobles Are Still Hanging On

Ryan Yu once again showcased the raw power of the Dinosaur deck, going undefeated in the main event of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Extravaganza! There isn't much to say other than you want to use your Skull Meisters, D.D. Crow, and Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring on the secondary effect of Miscellaneousaurus like always. Token Collector also a great card against Dinosaurs, since it can bypass the obnoxiousness of Lost World.

Interestingly, Infernoble Knights had a fantastic showing as well, despite being on the decline in recent tournaments. Many duelists like myself had assumed the deck was washed up due to its inability to play defensive cards effectively, which caused it to struggle when going second.

However, cards like Triple Tactics Talent alongside Dark Ruler No More and PSY-Framegear Gamma proved to be enough to secure respectable finishes for Infernobles, despite those shortcomings. This is the other major matchup where Token Collector will shine. Despite the card's low power level overall, Token Collector truly can end the turn for Infernobles if it resolves at the right time.

The gameplan against the deck is simple: go first and try to hang in there. If you can survive the first couple pushes you'll be golden. The cards the deck relies on are inefficient for grind games, so once you push Infernobles to the point of the grind, they'll struggle to do much of anything, similar to Virtual World.

Zoodiac Is Back

Finally, and most importantly, Zoodiac is back in tournaments and suddenly standing at the forefront of competition! There are three different variants that are seeing widespread play and I want to help you get familiar with all of them.

First up, the "pure" Zoodiac deck, just like the iteration that was popular in 2017, uses hand traps and a robust lineup of real trap cards to grind out games. The deck relies on cards like Zoodiac Combo to pressure the opponent, and it can play Infinitrack Fortress Megaclops as well; a real headache that's tough for most decks to handle right now.

Here's an example from the LCS, which Niklas Delhey took to the Top 8.

Next there are the Dogmatika variants, which are usually just played as a two-theme mashup, though Paolo Goncalves saw Top 8 success piloting a Dogmatika Eldlich version in the LCS, despite the difficulties these variants have to contend with. The Dogmatika cards give you an even greater ability to grind out games, though there's a natural conflict inherent to the strategy that see the Dogmatika cards getting in the way of your Extra Deck plays, so that's something to watch out for.

Of the three variants, this has proven to be the weakest, due to those Extra Deck complications. Overall, the Dogmatika cards have been falling out of favor as Eldlich cards have continued to surge in play off the reprints in Maximum Gold. The Dogmatika cards struggled with Eldlich, since the deck can easily survive the destruction and disruptions that are so central to the Dogmatika engine.

The third, and most powerful variant, is Eldlich Zoodiac. I generally try to avoid making comparisons between modern decks and decks that were played in the past, but this one really reminds me of a mixture of the Zoodiac Draco deck from 2017, and the Monarch Burning Abyss deck from 2016. That's because each of the two engines serve to solve the main problems plaguing the other. Zoodiacs have inherent trouble with big monsters and being able to close out games, while the Eldlich cards are great at reacting to threats but need a proactive edge to get through the early stages of the game.

Ryan Levine and Esala Wathuthantrige both finished in the Top 16 of last week's Extravaganza using a build of Eldlich Zoodiac that was identical. Their only loss? The eventual winner, Ryan Yu!

Showing the power of refined technical play, and some smart decisions like Main Decked Book of Moon plus sided cards like Mistaken Arrest, they took the event by storm. I personally watched a few of the matches, and they were nothing short of incredible. Unfortunately, due to tournament policy they couldn't be recorded or streamed, but the deck's incredibly rewarding to run, and practically every game is winnable if you play well.

So how do you combat these strategies? Cards like Aussa the Earth Charmer, Immovable are incredibly valuable, as is Book of Moon to flip Zoodiac Drident. You're also going to want to consider cards like Kaijus and Cosmic Cyclone. Essentially, you're looking to simplify the game and use your power cards to blow out your opponent whenever possible. I'd highly recommend siding Red Reboot these days too, since Red Reboot and Harpie's Feather Duster can give you a chance to play uninterrupted.

That's it for me! The format overall has become quite refined, and may be coming to a welcome close soon with the possibility of a new F&L List in just a couple weeks. I wish you all the best of luck during your Yu-Gi-Oh! Day remote duels, and I hope to face you soon!
