Creative Deck Profile: Gaia the Fierce Black Luster Soldier of Chaos, ft. Kaiza the Burial Star

Ritual BLS with Gaia as Konami intended? Let’s try it!


Strategic Summary:

Welcome back to another profile, this time centering around the Black Luster Soldier legacy support that we received a while ago to give the ritual deck a boost… by adding Gaia the Fierce Knight monsters. While this concept may have not made as big of a splash upon release as expected, it has received considerable support over the years, but none more impactful than Super Soldier Synthesis, a Ritual Spell that uses a monster in hand and in the deck as material. And what would you be Ritual Summoning? That’s right, Black Luster Soldier – Super Soldier. This Level 8 Ritual monster carries quite the body, but it actually gets empowered with the help of Beginning Knight and Evening Twilight Knight, the level 4 Ritual pairing that grant additional effects to your BLS Ritual Monster. If you use both, your Super Soldier can banish 2 monsters from your opponent’s field, and one card from the opponent’s hand, before you even get to attack twice! Fun stuff there.

The other half of the legacy support centered around new Gaia the Fierce Knight monsters, such as Charging Gaia the Fierce Knight and Arisen Gaia the Fierce Knight. These Level 7 Warriors both trigger whenever they are tributed, tutoring or recovering a BLS monster respectively. To round out their ritual options with Synthesis, I choose to run Effect Veiler and D.D. Crow, two Level 1 hand traps that are also LIGHT and DARK! Because that’s right, Chaos is also a major player in this strategy. But where the innovation comes in is the new Kaiza the Burial Star (YGOrg Translation), a Level 5 Star Warrior that can tribute a LIGHT or EARTH Warrior to Special Summon itself from the hand. Then, you can banish any Warrior to send a LIGHT or EARTH Warrior from the deck to the GY. Tributing? Perfect with the Gaia. Banishing? Perfect with your Beginning and Evening Knights, since they also tutor parts of your Ritual combo whenever banished from the GY! And if you send Super Soldier Soul to the GY with Kaiza’s effect, you can even banish Soul from the GY to give you the choice of Knight to tutor to hand for use as the hand Ritual material for Synthesis. With this new support card, you can finally play the deck as it was intended… way too many years later. So get out there and try it for yourself!
