Creative Deck Profile: Corrupted MachinArc Rebellion

With the rise of the corrupted Machina comes the ability to bring in DARK reinforcements.


Strategic Summary:

PHRA has brought a wealth of new DARK support cards to the fray with the dual support for both Phantom Knight and Raidraptor, but one card in particular can bridge to any archetype that employs Level 4 DARK monsters. It just so happens that the Machina, historically an EARTH/Machine type, got corrupted by Unauthorized Bootup Device¬†and became DARK; therefore, it’s time to exploit the new attribute with the new Raider’s Knight Xyz monster from PHRA! This R4NK monster offers access to the new Arc Rebellion Xyz Dragon: anything becomes possible as you negate the entire field and gain all of the ATK power! Traditionally, pure Machina had struggled to deal with threats outside of destruction through Machina Citadel, but Raiders completely removes this vulnerability – opening the archetype to defeat even the mightiest of threats such as Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon. Outside of that, the DARK Machina offer some helpful utility, such as additional recovery from the GY (Machina Possesstorage) or getting Citadel to the GY (Machina Uncruspare (YGOrg Translation)). With this combination of DARK and EARTH, you’re left with a solid OTK deck, while still retaining that Machina flair to destroy away during your opponent’s turn if forced to go first! So why wait, dust off those structure deck cards and the subsequent corrupted support, and get your Fortresses onto the battlefield!

Note: This is continuing the style of Creative Deck Profile articles, designed to showcase a build through replays rather than through a long article. If you wish to see a CDP for an archetype, theme, or strategy you love, feel free to private message me on the YGOrg Discord server, the comments section of any of my YouTube videos, or just post a comment in response to this article on our Facebook page with your ideas to keep under consideration! On most YGO-related communities my username is Quincymccoy, so feel free to reach out.

As of now, I have 8 outstanding requests that I am considering: Witchcrafter, Melodious, Heraldic Beasts, Fairy Tail, Amorphage, Magnet Warrior, Virtual World, & Volcanic. Some of my prior requests was covered by participants in CDSS4, so I highly suggest checking that out!
