Looks like they're dark blue.

You summon them to the new 'extra monster zone' or a link monster zone by sending a number of monsters equal to it's link number listed on the card to the grave.

You can only summon extra deck monsters to the extra monster zone or a zone indicated by an arrow on a link monster.

In all the excitement over the new rules, nobody noticed that for the first time ever, we are still getting cards of a previous series in a set of a new series. We're getting DDDs in COTD, the first VRAINS set. This means we might get more Arc-V cards in this set and others going forward.

As interesting as that is. How will DDDs fair in the new Link era?

If anything they'll just have Reiji show in the new show and be totally raped by Link monsters to shill the new cards.
But who knows. Maybe they can make DDDs good again by printing DDD Link monsters. But I kind of doubt it.

Because you can only summon monsters from the extra deck to the single extra monster zone or to a zone that an arrow on a link monster points too. You can still xyz, synchro, fusion, but there's less space.

>>153573236
In DDD's case, if Links get ED space, they are mostly fine, though slowed a bit like all other decks.

ED monsters revived from the grave can be put in any zone and should they already have an ED monster on the field, they can use it to summon a link and get space for their plays
>>
>there are people who think ground collapse won't get an errata
>>
>>153573207
There's only 1 extra deck monster slot. Meaning you can only have 1 extra deck monster out at a time. This kills fusion. synchro and xyz heavy decks. Pendulum is kill in a different way, their pendulum zones are now spell/trap zones when not in use, but those zones cannot be used to play spells and traps, only pendulum and they count towards the max 5 backrow total meaning to pendulum decks, that means they only have 3 spell and trap zones to play spell and trap cards so no more bubble barrier, pengraph cards and echo whatever plays together or any DDD Contracts

Repost

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]
>>
>>153573237
We dont know
>>153573207
Monster Zones are called Main Deck monster Zones. You also have 1 additional Extra Deck monster Zone. You can only Summon ED monsters to that 1 Zone. If you Summon a Link monster to that Zone, you can also use the Main Deck Zones the arrows point to as ED Zones.

Basically, play Link monsters, or you are limited to 1 ED monster only.

>>153573207
Monster summoned from the Extra Deck(aka Fusion, Synchro, Xyz and the new Link) must be placed on the Extra Monster Zone OR the Main Monster Zone indicated by the Link monsters.

In short, it you summoned a Fusion/Synchro/Xyz first, it will be placed in the Extra Monster Zone. However, since you can only have one EMZ, you can't spam out any more F/S/X unless you get a Link out first or displace the properly summoned F/S/X from the field.

>>153573330
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”.

The main advantage of the other summoning technique is filling the monster zone. Now that link is coming up, they can't summon as much since it is limited by the extra zone.

>>153573135
PART 1

Change 1: The Pendulum zone and Magic/Trap Zone have been collapsed together so that you have 3 purely Magic/Trap zones and 2 other zones that act either as Magic/Trap or Pendulum zones depending on what you put in it. In other words, if you are using two Pendulum monsters as scales, you now only have 3 open spaces for other magic and trap cards. Likewise, if you are filling all 5 spaces with magic and trap cards, you have no space to place any Pendulum monsters as scales.

Change 2: Under normal conditions, extra deck can no longer be summon to the traditional monster field (Now called the "Main Monster Zone" from the Extra deck). They can normally only be summoned to the newly created "Extra Zone" that is located in the center of the field between the players. Each player can only use 1 Extra Zone. The only way to have more than 1 Extra Deck monster on your side of the field is to use one of the newly created Extra Deck Monsters called "Link Monsters".

Pendulum monsters face up in the extra deck are treated as extra deck monsters so when you call a pendulum monster from the extra deck it goes in your extra deck monster slot.

>>153573389
They didn't kill it, they just made it so that if you want your spam, you gotta use a link monster, it's basically black mailing people with older extra deck heavy decks to buy their new shit or else they can't play.

PART 2:

Link Monsters have no level nor rank. Furthermore, where their defense stat would normally be is instead the text LINK-X, where X is a number that varies depending on the monster. This is the Link Monster's link number. Link Monsters to not have a defense stat. They can NEVER be in defense position under any circumstances.

Step 1: To summon a Link Monster, first, look at it's link number.
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 of the Link Monster you want to summon (also keep in mind that you must satisfy the monster material requirement on the Link Monster card)
e.g. Decode Talker is Link-3, so you must send 3 monsters to the graveyard. Specifically in Decode Talker's case, these all must be effect monsters.

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. (also keep in mind that you must satisfy the monster material requirement on the Link Monster card)
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. Specifically in the case of Decode Talker, these all must be effect monsters, and you must use at least two monsters, so you can't just use 1 other Link-3 monster.

Step 3: Once the Link Monster is summoned, look at the card picture frame. You will see 8 arrows, some number of which are lit up red (the number lit up red is equal to the monster's Link number). Field zones that are in contact with the red link marker arrows are said to be "linked" with that Link Monster. Monster Zones that are linked with a Link Monster become additional Zones that you are allowed to Extra Deck summon in.

Honestly its better to focus on getting out one powerful Extra Deck monster than trying to set up the Link to summon a lot of Extra Deck monsters.You have to invest in protecting the Link monster in order to summon a bunch of other stuff and if the Link monster goes your back to one Extra Deck monster anyways.

Which is better having one ED monster your opponent will have to dedicate resources to destroy or having a Link Monster which can be easily destroyed to summon a bunch of other ED monsters?
>>
Oh boy, here we go:

Summon some synchro tuner monster that summons things from the deck, like Doppel Warrior and synchro with it.
Doppel summons two tokens.
Use the synchro and a token to summon a Link.
Use said link to summon a lvl1 normal monster from the deck.
Synchro Formula synchron.
Use formula and Link to summon Decode Talker.
Now I have 2 zones free.

Yes, unless you have a link monster out, Decode Talker gives you 3 extra deck slots out of the 4 you have left after summoning decode talker. Basically, Decode Talker is now a staple for every extra deck heavy deck just like Utopia is and what Stardust Dragon used to be.

>>153573882
Sure. But you can use Link Monsters to summon other Link Monsters at the very least. So you can still summon a whole bunch of them even if you might not end with all that many of them.

But we're almost guaranteed to get Link Monsters and monsters who special summon monsters. Enabling you to actually summon a ton of them in succession.

I know that the new rules are changing just about everything.
That said. This DDD is amazing.

PART 3 (Random notes/comments):

・A Extra deck Monster that is properly summoned and then goes to the graveyard CAN BE REVIVED INTO ANY MAIN MONSTER ZONE EVEN IF NOT LINKED.
・If you have a Link Monster in the Extra Zone, and thus now have a Main Monster Zone linked to it where you can now Extra Deck summon, you could summon another Link Monster to the Main Monster Zone to extend the number of monster zones that are linked (i.e. if I summon a Link Monster to my Main Monster Zone that has left or right pointing red link markers, those adjecent zones become linked to that Link Monster and thus I can summon a extra deck monster there, even though the it isn't linked to the Link Monster in the Extra Zone). That is how you could still possibly will the field with Extra Deck monsters even though a Link Monster could have at most 3 bottom links (which would make you think you can only have 3 Main Monster Zone Extra Deck monsters since the Link Monster in the Extra Zone could at most connect to 3 of your Main Monster Zones).

Lamia sends Gate to grave to revive and tune with Darc for Siegfried. Then banish Necro with Darc to summon High Ghenghis.

As bonus, can use High Ghenghis and Ragnarok for rank 8 like Titanic Galaxy

you don't have to place the kaiju on the same zone as the tributed monster
your ED monster in the ED monster zone will be safe from kaijus though, if every monster zone is occupied
>>
>>153574254
I never said that they were dead. Only that the new rules changes everything.
I won't trust any assessments of their ability at their time. Though I do believe they still have promise.
Especially with their strong recursion abilities.

But my point is basically that you can't really judge them on the old/current standards any more. The game will be different, with or without DDDs.
>>
>>153574261
No they stay there until they die in which case those zones can't be used anymore for new extra deck monsters. BUT if you revive those destroyed monsters you can place them in the normal zone.

>>153574450
That's what VRAINS is.

The new Link mechanic makes it incredibly harder to use any of the older summoning methods, Yugi and Kaiba's new decks are incredibly viable now.

VR coming right after DSoD should also make it obvious. There's the fact we're getting a 16 year old protagonist again.

Then there's the monsters themselves, we have a new Gaia and Decode Talker looks like a DM/Neos-esque ace monster.
>>
>>153573265
I just want another stoic protagonist like Yusei in a serious setting.
>>
>>153574543
No your opponent summons it thanks to you
>>
You know, these new rules means that either Yusaku is going to be facing other duelists who use the other summoning methods or Vrains is going to be like Zexal and be very Link heavy with maybe a reference to other methods. I don't expect to see a synchronist or a pendulum ist in the show compared to a funionist or xyzist
>>
>>153574450
>5D's was worse than GX
Fuck off m8.
>>
>>153574450
5DS was better than GX

Zexal will probably be better than Arc V once everything is done. I never liked Zexal but the series improved as it progressed and the writers knew what they were doing in the last arc.

I'm not even sure what the writers for Arc V are aiming for anymore.

>>153574543
No. The thing I am not clear on though is if THE ENEMY can now summon an Extra Deck monster in that zone of his that your Link Monster is linked to.

What I do know is that if he has a monster in a zone that your Link Monster is connected to, your Link Monster can derive benefits from that. Decode Talker for example, having a top-facing link marker, would gain 500 more ATK from it's effect if there is an opponent's monster right in front of it.
>>
>>153574543
No, obviously not. What it means is you're giving them the ability to summon an ED monster for free. But, that monster is now linked to yours. No monster that lets you take advantage of being linked to your opponents' monster exists currently, unfortunately. One day though, I'm sure we will. Imagine linking something to the Quasar someone just put all their effort and taking control of it or negating its effects or something like that.
>>
What deck that summons from extra deck only requires one slot to play?
Im thinking Morphtronics
>>
>>153574585
Well Link monsters are still Extra Deck monsters, so they are still affected by the need to unlock main monster zones first before they can be spammed.
>>
>>153574568
Me too.

>>153574625
That makes it funnier at the same time though. And 5ds was great.

To link summon you say? You need to SEND to the grave. You cant send tokens.

This is the Starter Deck cover card, odds are the COTD cover card will be his actual 2500 ace monster.
>>
>>153574663
Does it matter? Just get out a strong Xyz out turn 1 and make it so that you destroy every Link monster they summon, then just Rank it up.

Once it's destroyed, you can bring it back from the grave and play it in the Main Monster Zone now, so you can summon a completely different monster in the Extra Monster Zone, whether it's a Link or another Xyz.
>>
>>153574614
The show didn't actually start getting marketed towards children until ZEXAL where we literally got child protagonists

>>153574766
>>153574773
You're right, I got it mixed up with his other effect, which only works with one of your linked monsters.
>>
>>153574773
Utopia was a starter deck card at first remember? Revise Dragon was the cover. If anything the cover card is going to be the rival's card, not exactly their ace since Shark lost that dragon after it's first use and it never appeared again.
>>
>>153574585
No anon, Link Monsters are connected to other ED monsters. It's going to be just like Arc-V. You just wont be seeing Pendulum monsters as much.
>>
>>153574824
No, you dumbass, it was always for children. They just realized children couldn't give a shit about older protagonists anymore.

Back in the day, Dragon Ball was an anime for children. Now? Yokai Watch is. They're just following trends.
>>
>>153574614
It's made for teenage chuuni boys, not really little kids. Shit for little kids is stuff like Yokai Watch.

A little maturity is not impossible at all given the tone of most of DM, Season 4 GX and Signers 5D's.

>>153574625
And what if I told you that the whole world in the setting, since its inception, revolved around games, one way or another, and that the whole world in the setting, was in fact created by a card?

So if you have a Link Monster in the Main Monster Zone, it can also be linked to your S/T Zones, right? That could allow for some interesting effects. Might also be part of the reason why they're moving the Pendulum Zones, because they wouldn't be linkable otherwise.

If a deck doesn't/barely goes into the Extra Deck, then it can still plat like it always did.

But if they're actually dropping it because they don't like the new rules released only hours ago, I have some serious questions about the way the nips run their businesses. More likely that there's some change from Konami's side that they need to adapt to. And at least one of those tweets seems to be implying that it's only temporary as well.
>>
>>153575588
I think you can tune a synchro for a synchro. The synchro monster you use for tuning gets sent from the extra monster zone to the graveyard which leaves the EMZ open for whatever you are summoning,
>>
>>153575588
>2) Do pendulum monsters pendulum summmoned from the extra deck go into the extra deck zone?
No because they technically already died, so they go to the main monster zone
>>
>>153575122
>So if you have a Link Monster in the Main Monster Zone, it can also be linked to your S/T Zones, right?
Yes, but so far, I think all Link Monsters have effects specifically dependent on having monsters in the linked zones. And I assume having a Pendulum acting as a scale would not count for those.
>>
>>153575630
If it really is because they don't like the rules then the nips need to learn fucking capitalism

There's no clarification if its summoning from the extra deck that has to be in the extra deck zone or if its the specific type of summon.
As in, we don't know if summoning a Synchro from the extra by ignoring its summoning conditions would need it to be in the EMZ, since its not a synchro summon. Fusion, Synchro, Xyz, and Link monsters summoned from the grave don't need to be put in the EMZ but didn't say whether that was because they weren't summoned from extra deck or because they weren't Fusion, Synchro, Xyz, or Link summoned.
Until that's cleared up Pendulum stays a mystery.

If your opponent uses Link monsters, they can potentially unlock the Zones for you, because Decode Talker links to an opponent's Zone, and there will be more like him.

Also, I am willing to bet Mask Change will be excluded from these limitations, since it's not a proper Fusion Summon.
>>
>>153577839
He's not that bad. Zarc's reasoning makes a lot of sense when you consider that it's also meta commentary. He was basically conditioned by the public to be destructive and evil, like how protags turning evil is one of the most popular things about Yugioh.

That, and Duel Spirits wanting revenge and him gaining ultimate power and blah blah blah.

What really sucks is that you know that something like this was the only way they could counter the "If you're not winning the duel in the first time, you're out" and 5 minute max duels thing.

>Pendulum Zones are now part of the S+T Zones
This is good. Means Pendulum Decks won't be able to run full backrow and will actually have to think about shit. It would really only hurt specific decks like Normal Pendulum or Zefras, or if, say, the En cards were printed, because then they couldn't be played in a Pendulum deck.
>Can only summon 1 ED monster at a time without using Links.
Get fucked, ED Masturbation decks. Finally I can tell the shitty Quasar Masturbatory players to fuck off and get a real strategy that doesn't fall apart easily because "muh 4 attacks". It'll also curb the R4NK toolbox a bit, since you can only have one tool out at a time unless you Link or your opponent is nice enough to give you an EM Zone.

So far, this seems like it'll be turbulent as shit in the beginning, but ultimately it'll improve the health of the game. Anybody saying they're gonna "jump ship" over this without thinking it through are people I don't want playing YGO anyway.

The field is actually smaller that it was during Arc-V since the Pendulum Zones are removed.

Only difference is that the 2 player's halves will be further apart with 2 new zones between them.
>>
>>153578218
It's still there
>>
>>153578316
Yeah this is really my only concern. I have a feeling that unless KoJ MAKES them work on ED/Link decks, KoA will just make more Main-Deck stuff like Kozmemes and use that as their "in" to the meta.

Too bad it was lame, badly executed, and didn't work. Especially the "it's everyone's fault" when he had a choice in the matter. Judai was mindbroken, Yusei never did it they had a cosplayer, and Dark Zexal was Yuma's bad choices causing Astral to lose his cool during the fusion.

Zarc had a choice in the matter to become Satan, which is why the meta commentary is bullshit.

The four Dragons were also Zarc's enablers.
>>
>>153575630
They are dropping it because Konami is forcing them to use mats with zones for sanctioned tournaments.
>>
>>153578376
The problem with Zarc is we only really laerned about his history second hand through Leo. We never got him to to explain his motives and such like previous villains.

Another reason why Yuya vs Zarc not happening is bad.
>>
>>153577539
Fuck, didn't see that connection

>>153578433
Zarc himself says from the moment people cheered for him he wanted to be Satan and destroy everything. But boohoo it's not his fault it's everyones!
>>
>>153578019
>>153578376
>>153578433
It was so terribly explained that whatever backstory they gave him felt like filler. If Yuya lived his memories for at least 1 episode every arc it would have been passable. From Leo I never got the feeling that Zarc had a reason to do anything he did. Even if they did say that the dragons influenced him, you don't see that at all and really know to remember unless you memorize Leo's exposition.
>>
>>153578425
Then they're retarded. You have to do that anyway. Virtually all Konami-official mats have the zones on them, and legally you're only allowed to use Konami-official sleeves and mats in sanctioned play. The only reason to drop it over THAT of all things is because you were too stupid to actually read your rules or you willfully ignored them.

I personally am glad that I can finally tell my opponent they HAVE to follow the Konami Official mat format, because I'm fucking sick of stupid tourneyfags having their decks sideways and the zones in weird places.

I think it works fine with Arc-V

Actually, all you have to do is use Decode then Astrograph

I'm pretty sure this is why they made the Dragon Magicians, so Zarc could still be summoned with the new format.

Just no. Whoever designed that thing was definitely colour blind.

Futotsu no Mirai was actually some hype ass shit. Pity there's no full version and it's hard as shit to find a version without the SFX.

On the brightside, this new Links thing basically confirms the show will have the other summoning methods like in ARC-V. Konami needs to teach the kids how to use them is in this new system after all
>>
>>153579471
This made me realise I still have to finish second half of Stream.
Thank you anon.
>>
>>153579871
That's neat then. The use of every other summoning method is probably my favorite thing about Arc-V
>>
While I'm not happy about it, I realized something about Link Summons. It's a great excuse to dump monsters into the graveyard.
>>
So, I keep seeing in a lot of places people saying stuff along the lines
>Oh, heres the usual people saying "Time to quit because new mechanic" that always pops up. No big deal.

No. Trust me, this is not the same. I've seen each time this happens, and this time feels different. I'm seeing more signs that says this might be serious.

We'll have to wait to see how sales go, but this really might have been a giant blunder on Konami's part.

They put a 15-card limit on the "Fusion" Deck, but nobody gave a shit at that time, since Fusions were a joke.

They also put a max card limit after 2 shitters ruined a tournament, again, nobody gave a shit.

Those count as changes/nerfs
>>
>>153580033
No, I'm aware of that.

I mean that, I keep seeing people who aren't taking these people seriously because "this always happens" and I'm saying that this not the same type of complaints, and not taking this seriously is foolish right now.

>>
>>153579970
It feels different because this is an unprecedent situation. There has never been a rule change with this much impact, so obviously people have much more reason to be apprehensive.
But it's silly to make any predictions about how this will really affect the game when we still only know so little about how all of this works exactly. Just keep calm and wait for details.
>>
>>153579940
Explain

>>153579970
This is the first time the operation of old card types got affected. When Pendulum got released, Synchro and Xyz worked just the same as always, and the new special rules (like not going to the graveyard) only applied within Pendulum, not affecting other cards (again, Fusion/Synchro/Xyz cards and summoning operated exactly the same as always). This time, you literally cannot play the cards the same as you used to. I now have to use a Link monster to summon multiple of older ED monster types.
>>
>>153580036
Yeah link sunmoning encourages dumping monsters into the grave
>>
>>153580033
>Both players can have fields now
>First turn player doesn't get a draw
It was a minor change last time, but this time it's major.

I'm of the opinion that this will, in the long run, help the health of the game and make it last longer. I just hope that we don't bleed half of our playerbase because of some misguided butthurt over not being able to spam out ED monsters anymore.

I've already done theorycrafting for the Link monsters in all of my ED-centric decks and adapted to the new rules. (except Pendulum-centric decks since we don't know how Links interact with ED Revival yet). Most of them have minimal impact, and I run shit like Chaos Resonator Photon Synchrons, Eatos.dek, DDDs, and Charmers. Some decks might hurt a bit if they decide to not raise the ED count (Synchro decks in particular, sorry whitecardbros), but all this mechanic does is force players to slow their shit down and actually focus on what's important in their deck.

This doesn't hurt anybody that isn't willing to actually think about it.
>>
>>153580117
taking this seriously when 1) we dont have all rulings and 2) we have only seen 4 link monsters is retarded

yes, game is getting a pretty huge change. Its worth being aware of. Anything beyond that is just guessing
>>
>>153580146
because they are extra deck rituals

>>153580081
Not him, but most people don't use all 15 ED cards anyways.

>>153580123
That's not an operational change on the cards themselves like this is.

>>153580036

>>153580183
Both having fields is actually a huge change. Greatly impacted things like Geartown and a lot of matchups would be entirely different if you could only have 1 field at a time
>>
>>153578928
I don't think it stops you from Xyz Changing. Why would it?
>>
>>153579471
That would be actually fucking awesome for the anime if you think about it.
>>
>>153580253
Xyz changing is still considered an Xyz summon if I'm not mistaken. So you need to be linked or have the Xyz monster in the EMZ.
>>
>>153580186
>because they are extra deck rituals
Oh, I understand what you mean now.

>learn 2 read retard
No u

>>153577372
Well, truth to be told those changes did slow the game a bit and also got rid of first turn unbreakable boards.

Then again, it's japan we are talking about. They love simple stuff

Why? You don't have to Xyz Summon on the same Zone as a material.
