Hello Mysidians, welcome back to another Mysidia Post article! Last week I was on a bit of a staycation, and I focused on enjoying the Opus VIII release and spending time with my lovely fiancé. But now its back to work as I intend to return to my one article per week schedule.
This week I am going to talk about five cards from Opus VIII that I have been having a blast playing with. Since the set dropped, I have mostly been playing Mono Wind, Earth/Wind (No Dadaluma, running the new Aerith), Ice/Lightning, and Fire/Ice. Don’t expect to see any Water cards on this list! I also want to note that this is not a list of the most powerful cards in Opus VIII, but ones that have been very fun to play with. Let’s get into it.
Greetings Mysidians! I hope you are all as excited as I am for Opus VIII to release next weekend. During the spoiler season for this set, I started to think that Monsters might be a big deal. We kept seeing more and more Monsters spoiled, and boy did they look good in a vacuum. In Opus VII we saw two new types of Monsters, ones that become forwards through conditions, and ones that can be discarded for abilities. These Monsters seemed more like support cards for decks (every Monster cost 2 CP last set except for Condor). This set, I thought Monsters might take more of the centre stage, and the need for Square Enix to print more Monster removal for limited supported that assumption.
In this article I will discuss each Monster and how it might work in practice. I will also review every element’s Monster removal so if Monsters do become significant this set, you know how to tech for them.
Happy spoiler season Mysidians! I am back with some more spoiler’s discussion for the upcoming Opus VIII set.
In this article I will break down my thoughts on each spoiler. Keep in mind that it is very hard to judge cards without seeing the entire set, and even then, some cards can be hard to predict. If you have alternate opinion to mine, that is great! Please share them in the comments so that we can all learn from more perspectives. I have sorted the cards by how they were spoiled. All of my information is from the sources themselves, and the Zodiac Braves, who are compiling a full Opus VIII spoiler list here.
There has been a pretty sizable increase in spoilers in the recent weeks, which is natural as the set release approaches. This week I am going to sort my spoilers by category. I think we have had some pretty relevant Title Format cards spoiled, so I will cover some of those cards today.

Welcome back to another Mysidia Post article. This week we will be talking about Title Format. If you aren’t familiar with Title yet, check out our page here describing it.
When I traveled to Los Angeles last month for Fan Fair, I entered the Title Tournament with my FFIV deck. I ended up coming second place, losing to a FFT deck in the finals. I had started playing Title Format just before Fan Fair, and the reason I started was to prepare for that tournament. After this whole experience I have become completely hooked on Title. It is so refreshing to build decks looking at new pools of cards that I would never consider for Constructed. It has also been a lot of fun building decks with cards from every element.
Since Fan Fair, I have been working on growing a Title Scene at my Locals. I have also been trying more a more decks out (so far, I have built FFIV, FFT, FFVII, FFVIII, and FFXI). Today I am going to provide a guide on my second-place deck from Fan Fair.
One last thing I would like to note before I begin is the current state of the Title Format meta. Generally, Categories V, X, and XII are considered to be the best. I was able to beat each of these decks on my way to the finals, although it was best of one, and I had some pretty unreal draws. I will talk a bit about each of those matchups in the guide below. Enjoy!
