SD22 Dragonic Legion Update + Random Ramblings

So a few cards of what's in this deck for the OCG have been revealed (credit to Shriek), I expect it to remain the same for TCG:
Blue Eyes
Red Eyes
Chaos Sorcerer
Red Eyes Black Chick
White Stone of Legend
Burst Stream of Distruction
Light of Redemption
Inferno Fire Blast
Escape from the Dark Dimension

And one of the new cards have been revealed as well:
Darkflare Dragon
Dark/Dragon - Effect/5/2400/DEF Unknown
You can special summon this card from your hand by removing from play 1 LIGHT and 1 DARK Monster in your Graveyard. Once per turn, by sending 1 Dragon-type Monster both from your hand and your Deck to the Graveyard, you can select 1 card in your opponent's Graveyard and remove it from play.

So I take back what I said about picking up REDMD's, at least the super ones. The Ultra should retain good value and be sought-after since it's the highest rarity. Super ones are hard enough to find around my area though, so I'm pretty sure I'm not gonna find an Ultra. As for Darkflare's effect, it's decent and allows for some combo's with REDMD and who knows what else might come with the deck. Fatty Dragons (do people still call it Hopeless?) with these guys seem like they can OTK for big damage out of nowhere. I think their issue has always been consistency and the ability to deal with disruption, so we'll see if any of the new cards help with that.

I finally got paid for my sale to Troll so I'm happy about that. I was kinda worried that my secret Thunder-Kings would be below what they would classify as NM but I guess they were content with how they were. I'll be sending out my ARG sell stuff today.  $ = <3  :)

I've noticed that my view count has been going up at a pretty good pace so I just wanted to say that I appreciate all of you for taking the time out of your day to at least look at my blog. Hopefully you have found some of the content  useful/entertaining/interesting. I'll be doing my best to maintain the pace I've been going at, about 1 post per day. Shoutouts to LFN for adding it to his blog list; if any one else that's visiting my blog has a blog of their own, please add it to your list as well and I will be more than happy return the favor. Likewise if yours is already on my list :) I'd like to do some kind of give-away/contest thing when I reach 1000 views but it's kind of difficult since it's not exactly like Youtube where you have subscribers. This thing's "followers" isn't really anything like Youtube's "subscribers". I read Mike Bonacini's blog for about 9 months and never was a follower, it's kinda like "what's the point when I have it bookmarked and check it every day anyway?" If anyone has any ideas please be sure to comment or send me a message.

As for Magic I've been considering picking up Blue-Black instead of Solar Flare since no Solar Flare topped the latest Grand Prix and Blue-Black won. This would make it so I wouldn't have to pick up Lilianas ($50 each) since it probably does best when paired with Sun Titan, but I'm just guessing at this point. I like White though, and like I said I didn't want to play a pure control deck, so I will have to think about it. I need to go over the UB decklist and see how it wins.

My next post will most likely be a YCS Columbus prediction, but I'd like to do a Market Analysis post as well, just not sure what card to do it on.
