Yeah, I'm disappointed that Link monsters are still needed to Pendulum summon from the Extra Deck. Although, I guess that they didn't want to make Link monsters completely useless and that might not apply to Pendulum summons from your hand. It is still basically admitting that the Extra Deck Monster Zone was a mistake. I understand that they wanted to try to prevent the game from just spamming out Extra Deck Monsters, but it's also kind of way too late to actually do that after creating multiple different summoning methods and archetypes that heavily rely on Extra Deck Monsters. Have you seen the promo trailer for Sevens? What did you think of it?
