Royal Decree, the Trap version of Jinzo,
contradictory as that is.
Royal Decree is also completely off the List, and
again, with good reason. Similar to the way of
Treeborn Frog, Royal Decree isn't all that bad, it's
just that the environment doesn't like it.
Most people like their Traps, and aren't that big of
a fan of a card that prevents them from using things
too. Royal Decree should really only be used
in Shutdown and Lockdown Decks, but could still be a
fun piece of Tech if you use few to no Traps.
Traditional: 1.5/5 Way better cards in
Where to start... "Jinzo in a
Can" would be more like it. And once you open that
can, a Jinzo pops out. It's great for decks that
need cheap protection -- I ran 3 back when DHZ
existed and saw some success. Although, 2 legal
MST's can go into each deck, Hyunlei and Scrap
Dragon love continuous cards and Black Rose Dragon
does, too, when they aren't Royal Oppression.
There's very little room for Continuous love in this
game. In fact, continuous cards (Fields, Equips and
regular Continuous) have gotten worse and worse and
worse, and at this rate it doesn't look like they'll
ever be good again, aside from the ones that can
give an immediate effect or have built-in
protection, like Royal Oppression fending off
Art: Someone might jump off.
Fun Fact: I got to page 330 of Catching Fire in one
day. I'm addicted.
Tomorrow: Sheep go baa.
Hey Pojo, Pheano here with another card review
Ok today we
will be looking at an amazing card this format,
Royal Decree. With Heavy Storm newly banned people
feel more freely to set more than one back row card
and given the cards that people are setting the
majority of them will be traps like Bottomless Trap
Hole, Solemn Warning, Trap Stun or something of the
like. The only card that is commonly set that Royal
Decree can’t stop would be Book Of Moon. So in short
in a deck that doesn’t set a lot Royal Decree is
amazing given that it will shut your opponent out of
10-12 cards in their deck on average.
So now that
you know why its good you need to know what to use
it in and against. Royal Decree will be every good
against Trap heavy decks like XX-Sabers, Machina
Gadgets, Gadget Stun, Gladiator Beast, Light Hero
Beat (Gemini), and Infernities. I would not suggest
using it against a deck like Blackwings, while they
do play a lot of trap if your playing Royal Decree
then you won’t have the removal to stop their
monsters or their Black Whirlwind plays and
Blackwings have a very easy time playing around it.
It can be used effectively in Plant Synchro,
Absolute Zero, Flamvell, Scraps, Herald Of
Perfection and Lightsworns due to the fact that they
don’t need to play Traps to win they care more about
their own power plays going off more than control.
Royal Decree is amazing this format.
