dude I wasn't some fucking casual, of course I didn't buy the starter decks
I don't know set names at all, but I collected mostly during the first two seasons of the show (from the kaiba arc all the way to the pegasus fight) so presumably the first two sets? I don't recognize any of those names sadly (will check my cards next time I'm hom I guess) but I do think I might have black luster soldier (the original though, probably)
the few I have looked up on ebay have been worth jack shit
I used to have two pieces of exodia but I "lost" them (like 75% certain this kid I hated took them though)
are there any rare/valuable cards from the first couple sets you can think of right now??? maybe I'll recognize one. I still have all the cards (that aren't "lost") somewhere back at home, but I should be able to recognize if I have them or not
it was almost definitely garnecia elefantis, unless there is some other bipedal purple elephant card.
the ghost was more of a cartoony kind of thing, I'm pretty sure it was white (or really pale blue) on a red background. I'm not sure if it could possess people but it had some kind of effect that made it OP or indestructable, can't remember for the life of me.
my internet is really friggin slow right now so I will have to click those links later x_x super poly seems OP though
what the fuck is that dragon one of the new god cards? srsly op bro
that is the kind of strategy I would attempt to employ though, something gimmicky and silly that when it works it leads to a flawless victory.
this reminds me of when I was a kid, one of the reasons I stopped playing yugioh. was at a friend's bday party with a ton of kids I didn't know and we were having yugioh show style rules, meaning if you lose the opponent gets to take one of your cards. this one kid I was beating pretty handily and was about to win, and he asked for one more turn. in my youthful grace (and naivete) I gave it to him... and he summons some piece of shit japanese exodia and claims he won the match. I was sooooooo mad. he took one of the cards I had just won that day (it was that ghost card they had in the show right around that time, this was somewhere in what I assume is the 3rd season where they've having that competition run by the kaiba corp, I'm pretty sure this ghost could possess enemy cards but not positive) and also lost one of the first rare cards I ever got, which was some purple elephant holo (again I can't remember the name and google isn't helping)
I don't like family guy's cheap cutaway setup for jokes, but some of the jokes are really funny.
I remember that time when I was young and up late watching the episode where the mafia is after lois, where the valet guy goes and starts their car which had a bomb planted in it and blows up. peter and lois then walk away, and he goes "and best of all, nobody important got hurt" while the valet guy's vest starts fluttering down from the sky. that scene still amuses me almost as much as that flacco comic
