Gold Paladins Invade Locals!


Today I went to get my game on at my locals! Sadly there was only one other Cardfight!! Vanguard player besides myself. Most people at my locals play Magic The Gathering. Normally there are more Cardfight!! Vanguard players at the store. I wonder where they were. 

Anyways, the first four games were very terrible. I had the worst luck in the entire world. In the first game I never drew a Grade 2 unit. In the second game I did not draw a Grade 1 unit. There was noway on Earth to win the second game. I did not draw a Grade 3 unit in the third and fourth games. 

However, things got better! I won the next two games. I was finally getting starting hands with every grade unit. Although I had the wrong Grade 3's as my vanguard. I did not draw Great Silver Wolf, Garmore and  Incandescent Lion, Blond Ezel. Instead Battlefield Storm, Sagramore was my Vanguard for game five. Sleygal Double Edge was the Vanguard for game six. During the sixth game I discovered how useful Holy Mage, Manawydan can be as a rear guard unit. He gains 2000 power when he is boosted by a Gold Paladin unit. This easily helps him surpass 15,0000 power. 

Overall, my deck needs major work. I'm currently playing an edited Gold Paladin trail deck. It doesn't have a winning image. The deck does not focus on particular cards. First, my deck is lacking better Grade 3 units. Great Silver Wolf, Garmore and  Incandescent Lion, Blond Ezel are powerful cards. However, I only have one copy of each. That really hurts my deck. I didn't draw either card during today's games. Secondly, Crimson Lion Cub, Kyrph is a decent starting vanguard. It's only useful to superior call Incandescent Lion, Blond Ezel. Once again I did not draw what I needed to use Crimson Lion Cub, Kyrph's skill. Although that was mainly due to bad luck because I have 4 copies of  King of elegant Skills, Gareth and Knight of Superior Skills, Beaumains.

How To Get Free Cardfight Vanguard Cards!


Trading cards can be expensive.We're spending a lot of money on trading cards. Many of us go to our locals to buy booster packs.  It may take a while to make a deck by buying booster packs. Sometimes luck is not on our side. We don't always pull the cards our decks need. Buying singles can be even more expensive!

However, last summer I joined Swagbucks. It is a legit rewards program that gives members swagbucks( reward points) for searching the internet, completing surveys, playing free online games, etc. You can also get points for shopping on Amazon.com, BestBuy.com, and other legit websites.

You can cash in your swagbucks for awesome prizes! You can get video games, posters, toys, etc. for free! I always cash in my points for Amazon gift cards. I use my Amazon gift cards to buy Cardfight!! Vanguard cards! This month I purchased two Alfred Early cards and two High Dog Breeder, Akane cards with Amazon gift cards. I used the Amazon gift cards that I won from Swagbucks.

If you are patient then you can get a lot of cards for free by using Swagbucks. It's a great way to get the cards you want!

Censored Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards

Yu-Gi-Oh! has some amazing artwork. Unfortunately, Konami censors female cards. The most common change is the female's breast size. The original female monsters have very large breast. However, Konami removes the original artwork's cleavage. In most cases the breast size is decreased or the breast are completely removed.

Konami is also overacting to some cards. Konami is now covering skin. Sometimes a female's arms and legs are covered. This is just getting silly. I can understand showing some leg can be sexual. It's not a very bad or very sexual thing. More surprising are the covered arms. What were they thinking about when they decided to cover arm skin?

I don't like Konami censoring female cards. It's very unnecessary. My only exception is censoring nudity. I don't have a problem with Konami removing nudity because it may offend potential players. However, cleavage is not a problem. Cleavage is not exposing young children to anything considered offensive. Cleavage is not nudity!

Furthermore, the majority of competitive players are teens and young adults. It is very rare to find very young children at a regional. We are mature enough to have non-censored cards.

Dark Magician Girl is one of my favorite old school cards. Let's look at her original Japanese artworks and her American censored versions.






Gagaga Girl's skin is covered in the Western version. Her legs and upper arms are covered. 



Do you like censored versions?  Do you think Konami should keep the original artwork? Let me know in the comments below!
