*Reading card effect*

" If this card is banished: You can add 1 EARTH Dragon-Type monster from your Deck to your hand."

Very Happy

*Still reading*

"You can only use 1 "Redox, Dragon Ruler of Boulders" effect per turn, and only once that turn."

D:<

CARD EFFECTS SHOULDN'T GIVE ME FALSE HOPE

ONCE PER TURN THINGS SHOULDN'T TAKE UP AN ENTIRE SENTENCE

THE MADNESS ENDS HERE:


"Once per turn, for all copies of this card:" <-- REPLACES --> "You can only activate this effect of 'Ugly text card' per turn"

"Once per turn, for all effects of this card:" <--REPLACES--> "You can only activate 1 effect of "Stupid Grammar" per turn"

"Once per turn, for all effects and copies of this card:" <--REPLACES--> "You can only activate 1 effect of "Hideous wall of text" per turn, and only once per turn"

Imagine going to YCM and accidentally slipped.

It's like having a foreign accent.

You're not annoyed by the fact that a Condition (Once per turn) should go before the effect per OCG rules, and they just broke their own rule?

This is more OCG than the OCG.

I'm pretty sure everyone here would know the difference, but on YCM they don't even know what the fuck "sum of the remaining ATK" is. Plus, I don't think we need to use all of Konami's OCG, especially when some of it has been questionable, and takes up unnecessary amounts of card text (stops mini-text from appearing on YCM cards anyway)

I agree with allowing people to change format of cards if they want, like how we added the term Mill. Good idea Sea. And if someone doesn't want to use it, they don't have to.

"Select & send 1 card from the field to the hand" => "Bounce 1 card."

"Select & return 1 card in the Graveyard to the deck" => "Recycle 1 card."

So yeah that'd be confusing

Yeah I do agree, perhaps mill was good enough.

We'll use them when we see a need to, like with Mill. Currently I don't see any needs for keywords, just rephrases of OCG to shorten text.

I also think Soup was being sarcastic.

Bouncing a card to the deck is Spinning.

Pretty sure some people use bounce too

At any rate I don't think we need those terms

If we need to shorten anything, I'd say we need to shorten Gemini monsters like we did for some Unions

Gemini monsters take up much more text than strictly necessary

Dyl is right, I was being sarcastic.

It'll be a pain to reword everything, and if we just use the keyword for newer cards, the duality of wording might prove to be quite a pain for rulings.

You could try to reword Gemini's except if you read there fine print some still have effects that are active when they are normal monsters

Geminis could do fine with something like ''GEMINI:(insert effect here)'' since all geminis is quite similar.

We did the same for spirits that were pretty by-the-book with their effects, and then allowed them full card text if it was altered in a manner.

So for the customized or non-generic Geminis they can retain the subtype text, while the others can use a shortened phrase or something.

To only mean reveal from the deck and effects that do something to them while currently revealed but meh, it like they want to leave reveal for hand and field and leave that for deck only.

All excavate are reveal, but not all reveal is excavate.

They should've put 'Drive Check X cards' instead.
