Yo, I came across this forum on my quest to become a
POKEMON CUSTOM CARD MASTER. In all seriousness, I really enjoy making custom YGO cards in my spare time, though I'm not very knowledgable at coding. Hopefully I'll be able to figure that out or find someone willing to help me with it, because I'd love to be able to use my cards some day without having to proxy them. I have most of my things on my pastebin account right now, but I'll be putting them up on here soon. Sometimes I make joke cards, but I've also got a few legitimate sets of cards I'd love to see become real, including a couple work in progress archetypes.
As for actually playing YGO, I'm nowhere near a competitive player. I've never gone to a tournament, and I'll admit I get more than a bit annoyed over certain meta decks because of how boring I find them. I always prefer creating my decks based around a theme, to the point of avoiding mixing archetypes whenever possible, and I stick to that strictly even if it means sacrificing effectiveness. As a result, that may mean my sense of card balance is out of whack, since I might forget about some really broken possible combo with one of my custom cards. That's why I need people like the ones here to help me realize what works for Yu-Gi-Oh! and what doesn't. However, I will say that I think I've mostly gotten the hang of getting the official wording for cards down in most cases, sometimes with a little tweaking.
Anyway, hi. It's nice to be here, and I hope we'll get along.
