Gravity Bind closes the week, and raises an
interesting question--does anyone still play Stall?
I've always kinda liked and admired Stall Decks, so
if anyone is using one, feel free to e-mail me a
Deck list of it,
firstname.lastname@example.org I'd really be interesting
in looking at it. I'm going with Stall must
have died, since three Gravity Bind are legal, but
alas, Mystical Space Typhoon at three, who knows?
Gravity Bind is one of the Continuous Traps worth
playing, stopping all Level 4 and above Monsters
from attacking. You obviously have to
construct a Deck for Gravity Bind, but that doesn't
make it bad. If you're using three, and your
opponent can't get around them all, it could be a
IS AT 3. This may be very shocking news to veteran
YuGiOh players. Yeah, this new list is warping
everything. And the worst part is, it's not even a
problem. We now have Heavy Storm and triple MST to
deal with this. Stall decks will love this as long
as they can defend it with Dark Bribe and Starlight
But why do I say it's not a problem? Xyz monsters
don't have levels--they have Ranks. This means that
NO level-dependent card can have an effect on an Xyz
monster. They can attack right through cards like
Level Limit and Gravity Bind no matter what. This
just isn't a reliable card any more.
Art: Bwow... bzzt.... bloop.
Fun Fact: Tour Guide from the Underworld is going to
be the most expensive card in the game's history.
Today’s card is one of the most annoying continuous
trap cards I’ve ever come across. Next format this
card will be at 3 and for multiple reasons. With the
release of the “level-less” Xyz monsters, Heavy
Storm at 1, and Mystical Space Typhoon at 3, Gravity
Bind has a lot of weaknesses. Most decks will have
at least 1 or 2 Xyz monsters in their extra deck, so
Gravity Bind has definitely lost power. Combine that
with the Spell/Trap removal we have now and you’re
really in trouble. It was a cool card, but the game
is too fast and too destructive for Gravity Bind to
be good. Sorry stall decks :(
This card was recently confirmed to be Unlimited for
the September '11 format. This card is the keystone
for Stall/Burn decks, and now that it's back at
three, we may see some of those decks start popping
up again. However, all the new Spell/Trap hate may
be the reason why this card left the Limited spot.
Still, it's an annoying card that causes problems if
it isn't taken care of quickly.
Gravity Bind will become unlimited next format. And
for good reason. Stalling is hard enough with Heavy
Storm and three MST. Not only that, but Xyz Monsters
can break through this card's lock down
capabilities. Stopping Attacks of four and higher
Level monsters is great but what a bout Rank 4 and
Use this card with Xyz Monsters to your advantage.
You're gonna need to protect your Roach somehow.
Try this with Meklords as they are generally low
level. Maybe an interesting Tech in Scraps!
......but how long will it survive on the field next
-Don't divide by zero!!
