Hey guys, Hime-senpai checking in. October 15 is the first day of Bushiroad World Championship Philippine Qualifiers, with the first day featuring Cardfight!! Vanguard, and the second day featuring Buddyfight and Weiss Schwarz.
Let me just say that it’s been a really really fun event and these major tourneys are events that players would regret to miss. There’s no entrance fee, and you get the best of the best players under one roof. It’s definitely an experience any TCG player should never ever want to miss in his “TCG career”. Even if you’re not fond of these large tourneys, you should try attending even once in your lifetime as a player. Until you’ve been in one of these, you haven’t seen it all. I entered the tournament with my Angel Feather deck, centered around Black Shiver Gavrail, her stride fusion, Black Seraph Gavrail, and the “Rescue” mechanic. Continue reading
Praise the TCG gods, they actually did it.
Featuring JP-only cards, cards that have spiked to over 25 USD locally, and… Bladewing Reijy Continue reading
Good day to all of you! This is ruo for a long overdue Weiss Schwarz deck profile and this blog’s very first post! Wait, did I even get order right? I don’t even know anymore. Life got in the way as usual. Not that I was doing anything relevant to begin with really – aside from my intersession semester, that is. I’m lazy, yes. Though if you want someone to blame for all the procrastination, you can talk to the lads who brought me back to first-person shooters and bought me CS:GO. Yes, I’m looking at you.
Today we’ll be featuring the first of several deck profiles I’ll hopefully be doing in the coming months. As I’ve mentioned to my friends, I’ve recently started a project of building a plethora of Weiss Schwarz decks for a grand collection – something I jokingly referred to as the Babylon project. Of the many decks in the list, Madoka had the privilege of being the first one to be completed, thus, is the deck we’ll be featuring today.

Today, we talk about a little something that some of you TCG players, particularly those playing Bushiroad games, would probably notice. It’s about the very volatile state of the secondary market in trading card communities, particularly in Bushi games.
Before we start, you may want to ask me to define what the “secondary market” is. To make it simple, we can define “secondary market” as the players who sell singles of the cards that they got from booster packs or boxes. If you have spent even a moderate amount of time in the community, chances are, you would have already become a member of the secondary market in one way or another. It’s basically the second source of cards for any player (first being the actual booster packs and boxes sold in retail, of course).
Now, what is the main point of this article?
Hime-senpai here with my first “blog” post here as a member of the NOHK team.
As you may know by now after reading through my previous posts, Cardfight Vanguard is my main TCG and this weekend coincided with the release of Vanguard’s newest booster set, G-BT07, Glorious Bravery of Radiant Sword. It’s been months since I pre-ordered two boxes of the set with a friend who split the contents with me, and of course, what started as a disappointing trip to the card shop ended up as one of the luckiest days in my life as far as TCG boxes are concerned.
You see, I had pre-ordered the set months prior to release in hopes of adding more support to my current Angel Feather deck, and to have a chance at pulling the holy grail of SPs in the set. Continue reading
It’s that time of the year again. Where one’s abilities as a Meister are tested to the limits. For a chance of representing the country during the majors on July 10, my birthday.
Too bad this wasn’t the birthday gift Bushiroad gave me. Sad… ;A;
Well, we’re dropping the Wednesdays in Weiss Wednesdays because the hype is real. We can’t wait 3 days to post HYPE!!
So, here’s a quick overview of what went down yesterday in the Manila qualifiers for Weiss~
Hi’ya’s~ I’m back for another episode of Weiss Wednesdays! Despite my current academic obligations, I seem to be able to find more time to write for the blog. Weird. Feels like I’ve wasted the first quarter of the year doing nothing. /sigh
It has been around a month since I posted my first rendition of the set here and I have to say, I’ll be damned. That has to be my worst performing build. Seriously. I’ve played several dozens of deck tests with it, even joined several tournaments, but damn still. I just can’t seem to win with the build. I guess I wasn’t used with the pace it had at all. Looking back, all of my older builds for any set have always had a solid line-up of high power 2-soul characters in level 2 – something my old build barely had in the form of Shokaku. Another thing, most of my older builds had to its disposal an abundance of Heals – something that I would usually spam end game. Continue reading
Figure collecting, being a tank commander in World of Tanks, watching anime, drawing things, and writing fanfics and blog posts; those are the things that I usually do in my free time. There was one thing I forgot sadly, and that is passionate card gaming.
In my earlier days I’ve always wanted to play trading card games, first starting with Yu-Gi-Oh!, or so I thought I could. I had the cards but no idea of how to play the game, it was a mistake on my part not having the initiative to at least try to learn how to properly play it. I collected countless Yu-Gi-Oh! cards with a passion, not knowing that my entire card collection was composed of fakes, and indistinguishable fakes that look just like the real thing. Being bluntly honest, this did not shock me, I was a kid at that time, attention span was also another thing that played a part in sending my TCG hobby to a screeching halt.
I drifted to other things and left card gaming until I came across Weiss Schwarz. Continue reading
Greetings, fellow admirals and captains! It’s me ruo for the weekly Weiss Wednesdays~~~!
Continuing with the series of featured decks used by me and my friends during the recently concluded Bushiroad Spring Fest last June 7, we’ll be taking a look at the Kantai Collection deck I brought with me to the tournament that day. Continue reading
