<Reasons For Its Popularity>

■ It can fight against cards like “Number S0: Utopic ZEXAL” during the opponent’s turn with its Trap Cards and “Altergeist Silquitous” – 憂

■ Since it can fight perfectly fine with the power of its Main Deck monsters, it has a good match up against “Dragma”. – くりゆう

■ Even though “Altergeist Multifaker” is a Limited Card, there is a large number of ways for it to gain access to it. As well, with the explosive power provided by “Altergeist Pookquery”, this is a theme that has a solid Offensive and Defense balance. – ひりゅか

Sample Deck Concept

An “Altergeist” Deck that fights with the additions of “Skill Drain” and “Just One Forbidden Drop”.

These cards provide means of negating the effects of powerful monsters like “Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon” and “Number S0: Utopic ZEXAL”.

After activating “Skill Drain”, use “Altergeist Protocol” to ensure the activated effects of your “Altergeist” cards on the field are not negated, allowing you to fight consistently.

Also, “Imperial Order” and “Anti-Spell Fragrance” allow you to lock out Decks for whom Spell Cards are key cards.

If you have any dead weight, you can send them to the GY as a part of the cost of activating “Just One Forbidden Drop”

Sample Deck Concept

A Deck that fights by using the effect of “Altergeist Silquitous” and “Altergeist Protocol” to seal the opponent’s actions, as well as attacking with powerful Link Monsters.

This Deck has many Trap Cards with which to ensure the activation of the first effect of “Altergeist Multifaker”, while also utilizing “Skill Drain” which is strong against Deck centered around Monster Effects.

While the effect of “Skill Drain” negates the second effect of “Altergeist Meluseek”, the first effect of “Altergeist Protocol”, as well as using the effects of “Personal Spoofing” and “Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit” in chain to the activated effectof monsters, you’ll be able to ensure you get to fight around the influence of the effect of “Skill Drain”.
