Mind Crush occupies a unique niche in the game. Not only has it been viable more often than not since it was first released thirteen years ago in Soul of the Duelist, but it rewards metagame insight and raw player skill in a way that's almost never been imitated.

Now that it's appearing in tournament-topping decks once again, Doug discusses how it was played in the past, and how you can play it now, in modern tournaments. He also details why it's so good for competitive standards in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG, and some of the rulings that make it so different.
