Recently there has been a lot of talk about the banning of cards, since it was announced by Tarou Kageyama that Square Enix is considering some bans with the release of the game’s first named set Opus IX: Lords of Chaos. Today I am going to talk about some of the commonly brought up candidates for bans, and give reasons why they should be banned, and why they shouldn’t.
Disclaimer: I am trying to take both sides of the argument when debating whether these cards deserve a ban or not. I will reveal my personal opinion at the end of the article. You may disagree with some of my points, but I recommend you try this exercise to see for yourself if you can justify either side.
It’s a double article week Mysidians! Recently I was talking to my buddy about the new Meia card and the topic of Mobius cards came up. The Mobius Final Fantasy cards have some of the best artwork in the game, and the good news is that Mobius has a LOT more art to give FFTCG. I actually began playing Mobius last year when I met a very nice fellow named Jason at the Toronto Crystal Cup. He told me all about the story and the gameplay and I had to download it when I returned to Vancouver. Below I will outline the basic premise of the story behind Mobius, and then I will talk about what awesome cards could be coming to FFTCG in the future from this game.
Why can Mobius Offer a lot to FFTCG?
Mobius uses cards in its battle system. These cards represent different attacks and feature original artwork of characters, monsters, summons, and more from the storied Final Fantasy franchise. The game also contains a lot of other deities, characters etc from folklore and imagination. All of this art has the potential to become art for FFTCG cards, what an exciting prospect.
Hey everyone, hope you were able to tune into the stream for the Water Crystal Cup this past weekend. Today I am going to talk about the weekend in general and how the event played out. I plan to break down my deck and some of the others brought by my friends in a later article.
First off, I’d like to congratulate Chris Neal for taking the event with his Fire/Ice build. This was seriously impressive as Fire/Ice has been a strong deck in this meta but has been under-represented at Crystal Cups so far. Alright, with that said, let’s begin!
P.S. All of the photos I took this weekend have disappeared... so I am going to just use photos of Gumbah to help pace the article appropriately.
