As I proceeded to clean newly spilled chocolate milk off of my rare folders, I praised God for the inventor of clear protective sleeves. I also though, “Why do I have so many rares that I don’t use?” Most decks use a few rares, and some decks do use more than others, but Vs. has yet to make it to the state of Yu-Gi-Oh where its players shell out a fortune for the most competitive decks.

What does this have to do with Vs.? Well, some Realmers first got word that UDE might be done making DC sets because some info. was leaked about the next Marvel set while we hadn’t yet heard a peep about DC’s next outing. This got the speculation train rolling, and I’ll admit my cogs were turning too. What would my game be like with no DC?! The first thread on the matter can be found here: Continue reading
