Decode Talker
DARK Cybers-Type Link Effect Monster
LINK 3
ATK 2300
Materials: 2 or more Effect Monster
(1) This card gains 500 ATK for each monster Linked to it.
(2) When an opponent’s card effect that targets a card you control is activated: You can Tribute 1 of your monsters Linked to this card; negate that activation, and if you do, destroy it.

Further Information

Look at those distinctive Link Markers! Use these Markers to develop brand new strategies!
It goes into your Extra Deck!

There are 2 ways of Link Summoning!!
>>Send Materials to the Grave Equal to the Link Number!
>You can Link Summon something from your Extra Deck by sending the same number of monsters that meet the material requirements written in the card’s effect box, whose total numbers equal to the LINK number, from the field to the Graveyard
>>Decrease Materials by Using Link Monsters
>Link Monsters are treated as the same number of materials as its LINK Number, however to use them you must match the requirements written on the card!

IN THE CASE OF “DECODE TALKER”
You can either
-Use 3 Effect Monsters
or
-Use 1 Link 2 Effect monster and 1 Effect Monster

Pay Attention to the Direction of the Link Markers!
>The Zones pointed to by each Link Marker and the cards in them will be affected by the Link Monster, and this will create new strategies!

They have no defense…!!!
Link monsters have no defense points and they have the special characteristics of being unable to change their battle positions or turning to defense position by effects.

Wait no, opposite way, it's an extra zone that's ONLY for ED monsters? Can't really tell 100% but the red box pointing towards the zone (Extra Monster Zone) implies that only ED monsters go there at the very least.

So instead of heavily changing stuff it just makes it worse.

They could add a limit to how many monsters of each card type you can have in your Extra Deck.
>>
>>153567394
What leak? What else did it say?
>>
>>153567698
It makes a whole lot of sense the way I'm thinking it is now, at least. The new zone itself is essentially so that Links can actually interact with the opponent's monster as well, but can also be used in regular zones so you can utilize them as fodder for bigger Links, which that rule would be hard to make use of otherwise.

It just also has the side effect of giving you a sixth monster slot in general.

Rather, the new zone is so that Links have a potential of 8 different monster slots to Link with.

Basically it's another Pendulum situation where retards will make the mechanic seem more complex than it is for months.

The Newly Created Extra Monster Zone
>You can only use one of them!<

When the Duel begins, neither Extra Monster Zone is considered to belong to a specific player. When a player Special Summons a monster to one of them, that Zone then becomes treated as part of that player’s field, and the other then becomes treated as the other player’s field. The tactics of a Duel will change drastically depending on who can grab an Extra Monster Zone first! An Extra Deck Monster can only be Summoned to the Extra Monster Zone! But if you Summon a Link Monster to one of the Extra Monster Zone first, you can utilize it to its max potential!

*Extra Deck Monsters, like Fusion, Synchro, Xyz, and Link, cannot be Summnoned to the Main Monster Zone, beware!

– What has been the [Monster Zone] up till now is now the [Main Monster Zone]
– The [Pendulum Zone] is on the left and right of the [Spell & Trap Zone]. You can use it as a normal [Spell & Trap Zone], but when you place Pendulum cards there, it is treated as the [Pendulum Zone]
>>
>>153567885
The Zones Pointed at by Link Markers Can be Used to Bring Out Extra Deck Monsters
Although Extra Deck Monsters can only be Summoned to the Extra Monster Zone Normally, if you have a Link Monster in the Extra Monster Zone, the Zones pointed at by their Link Markers can be used to Summon Extra Deck Monsters! So if you get out a Link Summon quickly, you can bring out Fusion, Synchro, and Xyz Monsters in succession. Of course, you can Summon another Link Monster in one of these Zones, so if you play your cards right, you can fill your entire Main Monster Zone with Extra Deck Monsters! The new metagame will require careful consideration of where to place monsters!
Super Quick Q&A for the New Rules!
Q: If Special Summoned an Extra Deck Monster normally, and it goes to the Graveyard, and I want to Special Summon it with “Monster Reborn”, which Zone does it go to?
A: It goes into the Main Monster Zone, not the Extra Monster Zone.
Q: Can you use “Book of Moon” on Link Monsters?
A: Link Monsters cannot be face-down, so you cannot target them with “Book of Moon”.

Q: If your opponent’s only monster is in their Extra Monster Zone, can you attack them directly?
A: If there’s a monster in the Extra Monster Zone, unless some kind of effect is in play, you would have to attack that monster first.

Q: Can you destroy 2 Set Spell & Trap Cards in your Left Most and Right Most Spell & Trap Zones with “Wavering Eyes”?
A: The Left Most and Right Most Spell & Trap Zones are regular Spell & Trap Zones, and do not become Pendulum Zones unless you activate a Pendulum Card in them, or if a Pendulum Card is placed in them by a card effect. A Set Spell & Trap Card in either of those Zones cannot be destroyed by “Wavering Eyes”.

Literally no reasonable explanation for this other than Kachidoki memes.

It has potential, but it really depends on how good the effects and summoning conditions are.

reposted from the /vg/ thread

it's pretty simple anon

summon formula

destroy formula

summon librarian

destroy librarian

summon some other 5

destroy that

activate soul charge and ss all of them, then synchro

that's it
>>
>>153568058
Which means you need to pour Extra Deck space and resources into Link monsters just so you are allowed to use your Deck's ACTUAL strategy.
It might not completely kill them, but any deck that needs multiple ED monsters is going to have some trouble with this.

Bye anons. I don't want to get into Vrains, so I'm gonna get out.
The past 3 years I've been here were truly great. We did a lot of things together; /a/ sings, OG songs, tournaments, drawings, decks, mini raids, nights spent discussing which Ruri was truly a shit, antagonized Ono.
I'll miss you guys, but it's time.

>>153568090
Do remember that zones the Link arrows are pointing towards can also be used for ED summons. So if you, say, put Decode Talker in the new zone, and then put the new Gaia in a regular monster zone through the Link (Gaia has left and right Links), you'll have a total of 3 more zones you can use for ED summons. Much more complicated but still possible to be done.

Link Summoning actually looks pretty damn splashable. You can run Decode Talker in any deck that can get 3 effect monsters on the field.

Gaia's super splashable too since it's just 2 monsters. Both will likely be an early way to let you have 3 of the other ED summons out before this mechanic gets broken in half too.

Tzolkin?

>>
>>153568247
Still, the deck is extremely reliable on your hand backrow if everything goes to shit (and that's why it's not a really good deck) so it nerfs it even more.
>>
>>153568297
Well, it has to be splashable if it's the main gateway to extra deck summoning.
Come to think of it, they'll probably make some Link 1 monster with super-generic materials and no notable effects that you can just splash into old decks and have them work almost as well as before.
>>
Fuck this shit.

I'm gonna run my Gladial Beast and Lightlords on the mechanics.

Also, Monarch/Emperor meta.
>>
>>153568381
Link Spider only requires one Normal Monster. So it works for really old decks.

I don't know how this will affect decks that relies on extra deck, when you consider that rituals and tributes are not affected. What's the worse can happen?
Will Evilswarm be still relevant?

By btfo I mean cannot be summoned anymore. Not merely taking a (massive) hit to an archetype's effectiveness. They reason I put DDD and Zoodiac is that they've probably lost any purpose to existing, they've been straight gutted.

First the Barrier statues, and now this.

Fuck this shit.

>>153568468
You have to run gimmicky link trash which takes space in your Extra Deck and use even more resource for your deck to be even more shittier.
Fuck Konami, that's the first time i'm on the "fuck the new rule train" even if i hated Xyz.

Kaijus don't have to go in the same spot that the monster was tributed from, you know. Nowhere in the rules on the monster or on the tribute rules does it say so.

E.HERO was shit from the get go till they released the "E.HERO + a certain Element" Fusion monsters, and Super Fusion.

M.HERO is basically shoot out Dark Law first turn.

I was always an advocate of weakening the Extra and strengthening the Main, so I very much welcome this change.

>>153569161
People are about to be selling their cards like crazy. Some decks got better with this change since they don't use many extra deck monsters anyway. Satellerknights usually sit on one monster. While shit like Yang Zing got destroyed.

It's easy to understand after the initial shock has settled.

What's really hard hitting is how this completely buttfucks so many decks. It's exactly like >>153568943 said. Shit is bonkers.

>>153569192
No kidding. The market is gonna go through a tremendous upheaval soon.
>>
>>153569225
They didn't want to reboot completely, and this allows them to jew out more than ever
>>
>>153569123
Yes, but since the extra zones are shared till someone occupies them, it's going to become a retarded turfwar
>>
>>153569209
It actually is only up to 3 no matter what. You either get one monster with all three Links pointing to your regular zones, or one with two diagonals pointing towards you and putting one with two Links going left and right in one of those diagonals. Remember, you only get one Extra Monster slot period.

Will need to wait for a clear rule, but it kinda sounds like, in theory, your opponents can give you more zones to summon ED monsters to as well. Which means cards like Decode Talker become a fair bit worse, and cards like Gaiasaber become a fair bit better when you take that into consideration.

I didn't even really take that into consideration myself since the only one we have that even links to the opponent right now is Decode Talker.

No mention of pendulums, so "Extra Deck Monster" probably refers to monsters that originally come from the ED. Which means that none of the new restrictions apply to pendulums no matter where you summon them from.

It's for the other method for Link Summon, that is lessening the amount of monsters need to be sent to grave by using a Link monster. The 2+ requirement is there so you'll need to use 1 Link 2+ monster plus 1 more monster, instead of being able to use just 1 Link 3+ monster.

I'm guessing any monster summoned from the ED goes to the extra monster zone, from where they were originally doesn't matter.

Step 1: Look at the Link Monster you want to summon and find it's Link Number where the defense points used to be.
e.g. Decode Talker is Link-3

Step 2: Send from your side of the field a number of monsters equal to the Link Number
e.g. Decode Talker is Link-3, so you must send 3 monsters to the graveyard.

IMPORTANT STEP 2 NOTE: If one of the monsters you send to the graveryard for a Link Summon is a Link Monster, you can treat that monster as X number of monsters for the summon, where X is it's Link Number.
e.g. You send two monsters to the graveyard and summon a Link-2 monster. Now, instead of sending 3 monsters to the graveyard to summon a Link-3 monster, you can instead just send the Link-2 monster + one other monster.

Mmmm. Interesting.

>>153570744
The requirements are the same for both methods, it's just the mechanic that's making you have to send another monster in addition to the 2+ effect monsters requirement written on the Decode Talker.

>>153570670
LOL, as long no zodiac and treatoad its okay...
>>
>>153569358
Well, according to the QA, extra deck monsters sent to the graveyard can be resurrected everywere, so while DDD need a lot of combos, most of them involve revival, which isn't affected by the new mechanics that much.

If we get a new ED limit or specific for the Links, there doesn't seem to be much issue adapting to it. After all, everyone will have to adapt too

Shouldn't you still be able to do the invoker rat combo in Zodiac?

Slightly different way to explain it:
You need monsters that match the listed materials AND whose link numbers add up to exactly the link number of monsters you want to summon, but non-link monsters are treated like they have a link number of 1 for this purpose.
Does this make it less or even more confusing?

A link monster counts as 3, but to link summon any monster, you still need to follow the summon conditions printed on the card. So if the Link monster says it needs 2 cards in the required material section, it needs 2 cards.

No use imagining altering something now when we have little information of what is to come. Everyone will have to change their decks for the Links, so the meta will also change. A dck of nowadays will only work if he goes first and that is if we don't take whatever change in account in first place.

Like, a Zoodiac deck needs a lot of ED cards, but if Links are from the same ED, the pool will change and less zoodiacs will be available. That applies twice if it has invoked into the mix.

Also, we don't know if Links need monsters in field or include hand as well, so if it's just field, Zoodiacs will need to change their strategies quite a bit unless they plan on always winning the dice roll, cause if you go second, it's quite obvious the opponent will seize those precious extra deck zones

Each player only gets one. Summoning while both are free lets you choose which to use, but the other one is automatically assigned to the opponent.

Isn't the Extra Monster Zone restricted to one per player? The first person to claim one just gets to choose which zone he'll use.

Yep.

Buy Links or get fucked.
>>
>>153571145
It completely kills every deck. But take it like this:

You are a DDD player and took the first turn. You changed your deck for more low level monsters to summon links easier. You summon Decode Talker, gain two zones and now have 3 zones access.

You do your combos and do remember: ED mosnters resurrected from the grave don't have to be summoned in the ED zones, so you can summon them elsewhere. You do your combos normally after that.

Seems slow? Yes. But also every deck is being affected
>>
>>153571145
>It sounds like this completely kills decks like D/D/D that summon multiple extra deck monsters.
Correct. This is a nerf to the extra deck. Link monsters are now a requirement and act as preventive gates to swarming. Want to summon a lot of ED monsters? Gotta use some Links.

I can't even complain to much. This might actually slow the game down against mindless swarm.
>>
>>153571145
It kills every deck that counts on having more than one extra deck monster on the field, unless you go out of your way and try incorporating Link monsters. Link support for old archetypes? Coming in 5+ years based on Konami's history.

Yeah... zoo doesn't seem as affected. Though that is if we take the game as of now and imagine like that. It's a tier 0 deck that will get affected by the banlist sooner or later and also, everyone will have to change their decks somehow for the links.

I'm pretty sure this still allows Pendulum spam since it didn't directly state "Monsters summoned from the ED can only be summoned in the EDZ" and instead states "ED Monsters, like Fusion, Synchro, Xyz and Link, cannot be summoned to the MMZ".

In short, anything from the ED except Pendulums can only be summoned into the EMZ from the ED.
>>
>>153571313
Decode Talker's requirement is "2 or more effect monsters", but rule mechanics states that you need to send monsters equal to the Link of the Link monster you're trying to summon(3 in Decode Talker's case). So unless you use a Link monster as a material to lessen the Link requirement, you are forced to send 3 monsters even if the written minimum on the card is only 2.

That's why the requirement is written as "2 or more effect monsters" instead of just "2 effect monsters".
>>
So If I have a tuner on my monster zone and a level 7 synchro monster in my extra deck zoe can I use the Synchro monster as a material for another Synchro summon or I am fucked?
Somebody tell RUM work just like they worked before!
>>
>>153571392
TCG players who use spellgrounds are just going to move how they position their cards slightly down and then place their Link Monster in the EMZ on top, they may even do it sideways since it's understood what the links are pointing at.

They'll still put Pendulum Scales back to back on the side, and just use 3 S/T zones instead.

The game mat isn't really an issue.

It's not that simple. It's not just the new zones, but you have to keep track of the linked zones, which is hard to do without borders and cause ruling issues (i.e. exaclty the problem we had with senet).

Your Link monsters can even link with your opponent's Zones.

Don't be surspised if they issue a ruling that all tournaments must be played with mats displaying zones.

I think so.

Yes, so if they have a monster there, Decode Talker gets addition power from the link. And I think the opponent can ED summon in that linked zone if it is empty.

No it isn't. Decode Talker has a Link number of 3, but I could summon him with only 2 monsters if one of them was a Link-2, so the Link number of 3 is not a minimum, it is a maximum (the most number of monsters you could send to the graveyard is 3, the link number)

Correction, you CANNOT use a Link 3 for the Summon of another Link 3

Non-Link monsters count as Link 1
Link monsters count as their Link #
You follow the requirments AND the Link # of the Link monster you try to Summon (exactly Like Synchro)

2 Scenarios:
3 regular effect monsters and/or Link 1 effect monsters: All count as Link 1 = Link 3, so you Summon Decode Talker. You CANNOT use 4 monsters

Link 2 + 1 regular effect monster: 2+1=3
You CANNOT use a Link 3 or higher

Basically, Link Summon is exactly like Synchro. You follow the materials listed, but you must also exactly equal the Levels to the Level of Syncro. For Link Summon, you have Link # instead of Levels, non-Link monsters count as Link 1, add them together to equal exactly the Link # on the Link monster you try to Summon.

>They just fucking killed DDD
Before the TCG side even got them.
Thanks KoA!

That she's fappable because I know they'll just blow her knee-caps out again if I hope for anything more.

If there was a Link 3 that said "1 of more monsters", you could use a Link 3, but you couldn't use anything else, or a Link 4+.

>>153572428
That's literally what I just said.

So now we can have 6 monsters?

> you could use a Link 3, but you couldn't use anything else

First: ED monsters revived from the grave can be put in normal monster zones
Second: Nearly everything got fucked, not just DDD, if Links aren't incorporated.

The way I see it, as long as a new ED or the ED limit is raised by 5 cards, my DDD deck is fine. I won't be able to open Crystal Sieg, but most unbreakable boards were affected as well

Did Pendulums really need to utterly killed? They haven't even been doing very well for ages.
What's more. They kept nerfing Yuya's magicians terribly from their anime versions to their printed versions. And now this.

What
That's not a thing at all mang, the hell are you smoking?
>>
>>153572493
Explain

>>153572493
No. There are only 5 magic/spell zones, two of which can alternatively be used for Pendulums.

Tea/Anzu is THICC AS FUCK in Dark Side of Dimensions, like even more THICC than Asuka/Aki

Here's your proof:

They did better than synchro.

>>153572510
They killed pretty much every Pendulum deck. Which summoning method got hit the hardest?
