The effect should not apply. You do not have one Type of monster in your Graveyard; you have zero. This would be different if the card said, say "all monsters in your Graveyard are the same Type" - that statement is certainly vacuously true with an empty Graveyard. Further, it doesn't even matter. The effect only affects monster of the same Type, and ...

As strange as it sometimes comes through, Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards are commonly being censored for the western market, not only visually, but also in text. One prominent example is the renaming of "Magic Cards" to "Spell Cards" shortly after the release of the third set "Magic Ruler", which was released as "Spell Ruler" in Europe. This renaming is probably due to ...

Collectible Card Games (CCG) wax and wane in popularity.... For example, both Pokemon an Yu-Gi-Oh! cards were extremely popular over a decade ago. There are still sales of these cards and older cards sell well, but both games have shrunk considerably. The exception: Magic: The Gathering which has had pretty solid sales, organized play, and card values ...

No, although you can use foreign language cards from the TCG, OCG cards are not allowed. From Konami's Yugioh FAQ, that lists several Official Tournament Stores Q: Can I use foreign language cards in my Deck? You can use foreign-language copies of legal-for-play cards printed for the TCG market, as long as you can show an official translation of ...

I would go for Munchkin. My 8-year-old nephew LOVES it (I like it too), it has a lot of replay value, and while there are a ton of expansions, they're cheap, cheap, cheap compared to the booster packs you'd be buying for Magic. That said, there is zero collectible element to Munchkin. Fantasy Flight Games also has a bunch of what they call "Living Card ...

No, you do not win the game if your opponent somehow controls 6 Trap cards. There are only three ways to win a game of Yu-gi-oh (page 26 or 30 in pdf): Winning a Duel Each player starts a Duel with 8000 Life Points. You win a Duel if: you reduce your opponent's Life Points to 0; if your opponent is unable to draw a card; or if a card's special ...

1) No, negative numbers are not possible on monsters. It is true that this is not explicitly stated in any of the official rulebooks. However, it is most common that such values in games refer to non-negative integers, and therefore it can be assumed that it is the case unless otherwise stated. It is the responsibility of the rulebook to explicitly state ...

No Monsters can be Special Summoned. Both Monsters have a Continuous Effect (page 14 of PDF) that is active while they are on the field. BSotAbyss blocks all non-DARK Monsters from being special summoned, so when you Attempt to Special Summon a DARK Monster, it is BSotHeaven that blocks you, and vice versa when you Special Summon a LIGHT Monster, it is ...

Banisher of the Radiance wouldn't banish itself, it would go to the Graveyard. Banisher of the Radiance has a Continuous Effects, which is only active while it remains on the field face-up. (Rule book page 14). Continuous Effect This effect is active while the Effect Monster Card is face-up on the field. The effect starts when the face-up monster ...

So I know my comment started this question, and if you want someone else to answer I understand. But here is why I do not think they go with the creature. The official rules about equip cards: These cards give an extra effect to 1 face-up monster of your choice (either your own or your opponent’s, depending on the card). They remain on the ...

In short, Decoy Dragon would be attacked, due to an important part of Dreamsprite: When attacked by your opponent's monster, select another 1 of your Monster Cards and designate it as the attack's target, then calculate damage. This means that damage calculation must be immediately performed, so the Battle Step has been skipped. As Decoy Dragon's ...

I'm baffled this question has had a wrong answer with such a score for such a long time... No, you can't. I'll just quote the other answer and highlight the important part: Q: Can I use foreign language cards in my Deck? You can use foreign-language copies of legal-for-play cards printed for the TCG market, as long as you can show an official ...

No, there is no such thing. The best you might get is random opponents via Internet. Or outdated programs with a programmend AI. But if you want to stay up to date, there is no other option than playing actual opponents. If you decide to go for random opponents, Dueling Network and DevPro are the most well-known online sites that offer playing Yu-gi-Oh!, ...

This is entirely dependant on the metagame you're playing in. And also on the current format (that is, Forbidden and Limited List). For instance, if your metagame highly favors decks that destroy many monsters by effects, even face-down ones, Morphing Jar is not a good idea because it will often be destroyed before even getting the chance to flip for its ...
