So to distract myself (and hopefully you too) from the impending potential end of America here’s some mindless drivel about Yugioh cards.
The Box, The Story and the Future…
So I’m about to make the questionable business decision of telling you all the reasons why not to buy the product I’m about to sell.
So I pre-ordered a box of INOV when Toadally Awesome and Dimensional Barrier were spoiled. However, after looking at the prices of the rest of the cards in the set I realized that this set has very little value outside of the those specific secret rares. I’d liken this to the Secrets of Eternity set in that:
- It’s value was limited to a few secrets: Qliphort Monolith, Soul Transition, etc.
- It primarily introduced non-meta archetype(s): Infernoids out of SECE were not a deck and neither are these Crystrons or Chemicritters (and worse yet neither are likely to become meta decks down the road)
Now to be fair, this set has one huge advantage over Secrets and that’s Dimensional Barrier.
This card is playable in literally any deck. It’s a viable sideboard card that can effortlessly win games against certain decks. Currently, this card is your best chance at profiting off your box.
I don’t like those odds so I’m selling my box. I’ll be the lowest listing on tcgplayer in a matter of minutes.
I bought all of the cards pictured from friends who cracked their own boxes. Most if not all of them are new pieces for my much beloved jank decks. I don’t regret this decision especially since I’m stuck in a rut in competitive Yugioh at the moment. Anyway that’s a post for another day.
Anyway, it’s time to hope that the country is still here when I wake up in a few hours.
Thanks for reading as usual.
