Creative Deck Profile: Athena’s Chaotic Lightsworn Host

Mill, the herald Lightsworn sing… Glory to Athena!


Strategic Summary:

Welcome back to another profile, this time focusing on the Chaos playstyle when combined with the Lightsworn archetype. The Lightsworn archetype is known to do one thing very well – turbo mill through your deck, getting a second hand out of your GY to extend plays. That said, this deck is designed to do that even better. With Chaos Ruler, the Chaotic Magical Dragon, The Vampire Zombie, and Minerva, the Exalted Lightsworn at your disposal, you can easily mill through your deck and get your GY primed for chaos summons. That’s right, we have The Chaos Creator and Chaos Nephthys returning to play, but we also have Black Dragon Collapserpent and White Dragon Wyverburster alongside Chaos Space for even more fun combo potential. Speaking of combo potential, I’m making the most of the latest F/L list by including a copy of Destrudo the Lost Dragon’s Frisson and Fairy Tail – Snow, both of which are great at returning to your field from the grave, and even better at returning to legal play from the F/L list apparently!

Now about those Lightsworn monsters again, we have a few more key options to highlight. Felis, Lightsworn Archer and Wulf, Lightsworn Beast serve as the key options you want to mill, as they come back to your board ready to serve as Synchro, Xyz, or Link material. Same with your Performage Trick Clown, the honorary Lightsworn monster. But here I’m also using a Rokket Engine, fueled by Rokket Tracer and Absorouter Dragon to get even more card advantage from milling. Closing out the mass milling side of the strategy is Orbital Hydralander, a Level 8 with the ability to mill even more, while destroying cards! While he’s not the most consistent here, he’s definitely good enough to warrant including. As for the namesake of the deck, one win condition is to actually loop Fairy monsters with Athena‘s effect combined with Darklord Superbia, especially when you through Extra Deck fairies like Exalted Minerva herself or Artifact Dagda into the mix. Channel your inner light with these Chaotic Lightsworn!
