After reading your essay. I still can't figure out what Pot of Greed does. They never explain it in the anime, especially not GX.
Dude that thing should come with instruction manual
Can you elaborate a bit about Pot of Greed? What does it do? Come on, these are the questions that keep me awake at night. I once had an existential crisis because of this card.
Tʜᴇ Pᴏᴛ ᴏғ Gʀᴇᴇᴅ
A small essay by Se-To-Oh
The Pot of Greed is one of the most popular cards in the Duel Monsters universe - and for players as well. It appeared 39 times in the classic DM series and 62 times in GX. However, due to its popularity and players finding ways to abuse it, it’s often limited or downright banished from the tournaments, and now barely appears in the new anime series.
Legend says if you try to put your hand in the Pot of Greed, it will explode! Hah, it sucks to be you!
The Pot of Greed is green. Maybe it is a coincidence that greeɴ and greeᴅ are only one letter apart.
The green color is associated with abundance and prosperity. Perhaps it’s because money is usually green, but I think it is because the plants are green. If you got plants, you got food. Well, you might not eat salad, but your cows eat grass. You eat the cows so you are eating salad but association too! What about that, huh?
Anyway! People always wants more and more abundance, so the color green is also associated with one of the 7 sins. Guess which one…No! Not wrath! And it isn’t sloth either! It’s greed! Therefore, green is the color of choice for the Pot of Greed!
Pots allow you to hold things. Pots are also associated with abundance and fortune. Well, this one looks like a mug or a very ugly jar but I’m not complaining!
It also got this malicious red eyes and sneering yellow smile. All the teeth are molars, which are used to grind food. Usually, when an creature have mostly or only molars it takes a long time for them to be able to swallow the food, like the cows who spend the entire day grinding their grass in a very boring process. So if a Pot of Greed bites you, expect to have prolonged pain!
The yellow grin with big red lips is also a characteristic of the Joker. No really!
The Pot of Greed allows you to draw two cards from your deck. Shalt thou count to two, no more, no less. Two shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be two. three shalt thou not count, neither count thou one, excepting that thou then proceed to two. Four is right out and don’t even think about counting to five.
By drawing two cards, now your deck have two less cards and your hand got two additional cards. By drawing two more cards you may form a new combination to save your ass, or get a even shittier hand. It depends. I have bad luck so I often screw myself even with two additional cards.
You can have cards which activate by drawing cards, like Solemn Wishes, to help you. However if the enemy got Bad Reaction to Simochi you have a shitty luck. Some cards like Muka Muka gets stronger with two more cards but Infernity decks work better with less cards in hand so maybe you should think twice.
Why two? Well, one would be too little and three would be too much, therefore two is perfect.
And thus Pot of Greed allows me to draw the top two cards from my deck, except it doesn’t because it’s banned
Pshh, as if. We all know it’s from American Dragon.
You guys are tripping. This is Dragon Ball Z
dont judge someone based on how they look judge them based on their opinions on female yugioh characters
This scene always stuck with me when I watched this episode for the first time. Shou is staring Ryou down with anger in his eyes while Ryou continues walking past him, not even acknowledging his little brother’s presence. And Judai just watches them, worrying about what Shou will do and perplexed on how Ryou acted in his duel with Fubuki. This scene didn’t need any dialogue to be incredible.
It’s been a while since I first took on the daunting character that is Jack Atlas; ever since then I’ve amassed nearly 350 followers and made friends all over the world. It’s been an exciting ride back into the YGO fandom! And so, I am extending my love back into the community… through character merchandise.
It’s not a lot, mostly because I’m giving away what’s essentially extra— but this is all already sold-out pretty much everywhere, and is very unlikely to be reprinted. Plus, it’s adorable!
So here’s how this’ll go:
On May 15th, 2014, I will randomly select 3 (three) winners who will each get a pick at any one of the three prizes seen above:
- Jack Atlas “tsumamare” Keychain
- Seto Kaiba “tsumamare” Strap
- Johann Andersen ‘Bath Poster’ (meaning it’ll stick to like the wall of your shower/bathtub without prior adhesive/thumbtacks i think?), measuring about 9 x 5 1/2 inches roughly
All of these items are manufactured by COSPA.
Here’s how you enter:
Firstly, you have to be following me at the time and date of this posting (4-18, 12:22 AM EST). I’ll be able to figure out if you followed me later and sent your ask later, thanks to the activity page.
Second, you have to send an ask telling me your favorite YGO moment. It can be from any series! Any at all. Your name will be put into a word document with a number assigned, and you will be entered into the drawing, and contacted via ask if you win.
You have 24 hours to respond. The first person to respond gets first choice, second gets second choice, and the last person to respond will be left with the remaining item.
Only one ask per mun (for roleplayers). If you give me multiples, I’ll figure it out, and all of your entries will be disqualified.
Similarly, no giveaway blogs.
This contest is open internationally, so don’t be afraid to enter just because you’re far away!
Feel free to reblog this to spread the word, but it won’t count for or against you if you do.
Good luck, and have fun!
I just had a conversation with a friend who hates Anzu, but couldn’t explain to me exactly why she disliked her character.
Anzu is the most misunderstood and misrepresented character in this fandom. She doesn’t even make many so called ‘friendship speeches’. In fact Jounouchi is the one the makes most of the long emotional friendship speeches. It’s a shame since she’s the main female, and sometimes I wonder if it’s because she’s the main female that she gets kicked around by certain parts of the fandom the way she does.
So here’s one for our girl Anzu.
Why even bother showing up to the tournament?
