Thoughts on changes by Master Akaba
Due to Grinder Golem’s ability to be Special Summoned an unlimited amount of times, it was used together with Akashic Magician and Firewall Dragon to be retrieved and Special Summoned again to summon link monsters and build a board quickly. The changes to the meta due to the release of Firewall Dragon should be the main reason?
Dinowrestler Pankratops is a high level monster with a high level of power and utility that can be used on it’s own, and is much stronger then other high level monsters. Maybe look into using Alpha, the Master of Beasts or other high level monsters?
Nadir Servant is the opening card for Dogmatika plays. This single card helps you gain a lot of advantage, making it too powerful? However even if it is limited, the power of Dogmatika decks will still maintain.
Red Reboot is too strong as it is able to activated from the hand, making this card the natural enemy of Eldlich and other Trap focused decks. By reducing the frequency that this card is used, maybe Trap cards will see more use?
Cursed Eldland is a card that strengthens your hand every turn in Eldlich decks. Even if this card is Semi-Limited, reducing the chances of activating it, Eldlich decks will remain as a powerful deck.
Invoked decks are used frequently with Dogmatika decks, with Magical Meltodwn allowing you to easily add Aleister the Invoker to hand. Even if the consistency of activating this card in the first turn in the first turn is reduced, the deck’s strength is expected to still maintain.
Even though Dark Grepher ability let’s players send dark attribute monsters to the Graveyard, it is not expected to be a problem to be unlimited?
In the recent format, Tour Guide From the Underworld should pose no problems, allowing her to be unlimited.
