Episode 124 Review

Giving Priest Seto a deck based off of excavation was a last minute decision. I started writing this episode and then realized that I had no idea what deck to give Priest Seto. By this point in the series I have pretty much used up every deck idea I had come up with already. That I night I just started thinking of different gimmicks and mechanics I hadn’t used yet. After a little while I remembered excavation and realized that it would fit thematically in an Egyptian-based deck. Speaking of the theme of the deck, each of those monsters (except the Legendary White Dragon) where based off of different mythological creatures of Egyptian Mythology. The Legendary White Dragon is actually a funny story. If you go back and watch the Dawn of the Duel, never once do they call it the Blue-Eyes White Dragon. They only call it the White Dragon. This was the perfect opportunity for me to make it a different monster to fit better in my story.

Until next time, duel on!

Episode 123 Review

This episode was meant to depict the events explained in the movie, The Pyramid of Light. In the movie, a battle between the Pharaoh and Anubis, and Anubis using the power of the Pyramid of Light to his advantage and his might Andro Sphinx and Sphinx Teleia, nearly defeats the Pharaoh. Surprisingly enough, despite the importance of this battle to the plot of the movie, we have absolutely no in-depth description or depiction of that battle. So I provided it instead. Speaking of them movie, it should be noted that in one of the most extreme moves I have made, I changed the continuity of the movie compared to the show. In case you didn’t catch it, I explained that the movie doesn’t actually take place in the same timeline as the original show. My reason for this is that there’s no other way it could work. Anubis clearly recognizes Atem as the Pharaoh, and because of this, he must have battled with Atem while he was Pharaoh. The problem with this is that in the Dawn of the Duel, we see Atem’s entire reign as Pharaoh, from the moment he was crowned, to the moment he left Egypt forever. There’s no way that the traditional timeline could handle the backstory of the Pyramid of Light, so I used time travel and  parallel timelines to justify it.

Until next time, duel on!
