I was at Target today doing my typical grocery shopping, and they had the 2020 Yugioh Megatins in stock for $20. I had less stuff to buy than I normally do so I went ahead and bought one on an impulse. Here's a picture with the four notable pulls I got.

Spoiler

Witch's Strike and Strength In Unity are pretty cheap despite being pretty good cards so I'll probably incorporate both into my Dark Magician deck since I haven't made any changes to it since I finished my Thunder Dragons & Sky Strikers. The real luck I got was from Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon & Borreload Savage Dragon. Here are their prices on TCGplayer:

Spoiler

If I sold them together and threw in another random staple like a Red Reboot I have laying around, I could sell them for $60 and make $40 off the tin. Red-Eyes would be very powerful in my Dark Magician deck; however the Japanese ban-list came out yesterday and banned Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon but here in NA we got one last week and Red-Eyes didn't get hit and we wont have a new list until December so I have a few months to decide on him. Borreload has no reason to get hit and he'd be kind of useful for my Thunder Dragons but I was hoping more to get Apollousa instead and she's only $10 on TCGplayer.

Even if Red-Eyes gets banned here in NA, he'd still make a pretty nice collectors card and I have more than enough room in my Collectors Binder.

"flaming nipple chops"-Your host, the man they call Ghost.

To say, 'nothing is true', is to realize that the foundations of society are fragile, and that we must be the shepherds of our own civilization. To say, 'everything is permitted', is to understand that we are the architects of our actions, and that we must live with their consequences, whether glorious or tragic.
yeah boy, ez money

Still mad about Borrelsword existing? I agree about Dragoon though, this card is fucking format-killing.

Hmm...
If you need the money I say sell. But these are first editions and you never know if the price might skyrocket in a couple years. I’ve easily seen cards double in price once they are not printing those editions or that pack anymore.

Hold off if you can.

So I asked around in other places that discuss the state of the meta game and it seems very likely that Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon will get hit on the next ban-list in December. I'm definitely going to keep Borreload Savage Dragon since he combos well with my Borrelsword; but what I was going to do is wait until Dragoon goes a bit further up in price (he currently dropped down to $42, I want to see if he can get into the $50's), sell him, and when he gets hit or reprinted buy him back immediately from the inevitable drop.

He's only that high up in price right now because of his effect and is very important to the current meta game. All of this will occur before the end of the year which is far before Konami will stop print of this set since it just came out like three weeks ago so I'm pretty optimistic about pulling this off.

I miss when making a single Stardust irst turn with my Dragunity was plenty good enough.

Most I do with Yu-Gi-Oh anymore is play Metaphys online sometimes. I was thinking about going for Rockets but  I'm no longer interested in getting back in physically now that Red-Eyes Darkness Metal is fucking dead.
I'm gonna go back to Vanguard once the pandemic dies down. You should try the mobile version. it's nowhere near as good as the physical game but it works.

My brother killed any interest in Vanguard because he couldn't shut the fuck up about how great it is. It didn't help that he chose making decks with the most loli-like anime girls wielding huge ass weapons with the cringiest flavor text. Yeah I play Sky Striker in YGO but I also play Thunder Dragon & Orcust.

You don't worry, nobody runs Bermuda Triangle In Zero unless they are litteraly just throwing for exp.
They are cancer on the physical game since they've been released as Dragon Ruler tier bullshit in every set they've received since release.

This is exactly what I don't like about this game. I wanted to try Armed Dragons, not have my parter play Solitare off a single card for a half hour and then publicly execute the opponents.
It doesnt help that the outs to these kinds of boards feel equally as cheep and anti fun as well.

Need help deckbuilding. At least what to build them with.

It's an interesting engine but it doesn't have enough starters on its own.

I tried em with rockets, but it just dilutes both engines.
 The only real compatibility points are RedMed, Tempest and Absorouter.

I have no idea how to build them with Ojamas either.

Taking another look at that first image you posted, Opponent has no one to blame but himself for not using Nibiru.

Well that's just the point though. You don't find it rediculous that you have to run something like nibiru or sphere mode in absolutely everything to not die instantly to something like this?
And one can hardly be blamed for not having a spesific out in their had at absolutely all times.

I plus just like when my games last litteraly more than one single unpredictable entirely luck basdd interaction that makes one player or the other scoop in the middle of or imedeately following a solitaire session.

Like honestly every duel I play with stuff like this feels exactly like being up against exodia FTK in all but name.

Depending on the deck, Nibiru isn't the only out. Ash Blossom, Ghost Ogre, Infinite Impermanence, and Gnomaterial are all great outs to any combo summoning. The ghost girls even more so now that Called By The Grave is limited to one. There's also Mystic Mine, Evenly Matched, TCBOO, and Compulsory Evacuation Device if you went first. I don't even have to mention the Solemn cards.

If you go to locals you wont really see the best of the best meta decks. Will your card shop still have lots of players who have Borrelsword and Apollousa? Probably, along with all those hand traps I just mentioned. But you'll also see a lot more rogue decks like what you want to play because an actual Tier 2, 1, or 0 deck is simply way too expensive for a lot of players. I'm currently building Orcust right now and I have to do it at a slow pace because it's still a pretty top-tier deck despite having no place in regional and YCS top charts.

If Covid wasn't a thing I would be out playing but I certainly wouldn't be using Orcust because I only have half the cards to the deck I want to make.

Well that's just the point though. You don't find it rediculous that you have to run something like nibiru or sphere mode in absolutely everything to not die instantly to something like this?
