CDP: Icejade Crystron Synchron, Assaulting Synchro Summon

Frosty Aquas and Aquatic Machines…


Strategic Summary:

Welcome to today’s CDP, this time inspired from a build posted in YGOrg’s Discord chat specifically for Deckbuilding, and this time, it’s mashing up two WATER themes with the core goal of Synchro Summoning. The Icejade archetype is comprised of WATER Aqua monsters that have great inherent consistency, due to the effects of Icejade Cradle, Icejade Manifestation, and Icejade Aegirine. They also play extremely well with other WATER archetypes, as I’ve covered them in the past with Marincess, Deep Sea, Aquaactress, Ursarctic, and of course, Pure.

But today’s build takes the Icejade synergy a step further, by intentionally destroying your own monsters with the Crystron archetype while triggering the GY effects of Icejade Tremora, Icejade Tinola, and Icejade Acti. You see, whenever a WATER monster you control is destroyed by battle or card effect, any of the three can be banished from the GY to Special Summon any other Icejade monster from your hand or GY. Combine this with something like Crystron Thystvern, which can destroy itself or any other face-up card to summon a Crystron Tuner from the deck, and you get an Icejade non-Tuner as well! This even works with the Crystron’s ace monster, the glue that holds the deck together with its powerful effect, Crystron Sulfefnir. This yellow Level 5 Machine can be Special Summoned from the hand or GY by discarding a Crystron card, then it destroys a card you control. If you destroy itself, it Special Summons any Crystron from your deck, allowing for even more consistency.

Closing out today’s build is a simplistic Synchron engine, featuring Assault Synchron (YGOrg Translation), a copy of Jet Synchron, and triple copies of Tuning and On Your Mark, Get Set, Duel! The second option is a Continuous Spell that sticks around, perfect for your future Crystron effect activations, but both tutor the Tuner you need for the moment. While not every duel will end with a flashy Accel Synchro Summon via Accel Synchron and another Synchro monster like Crystron Ametrix, it’s definitely awesome when that plays out as planned. Especially when you dig into the Crystron in-theme boss monsters, such as Crystron Quariongandrax or Crystron Phoenix. Crystalize your opponent in crushing resonant waves when you combine Crystron and Icejade together!
