Strategic Summary:

The upcoming Datascape archetype from Phantom Rage mixes WIND/Psychic monsters with EARTH/Wyrm monsters to support both Synchro and Xyz summoning, specifically enabling summoning Level/Ranks that are a multiple of 3. On the other hand, the Digital Bugs are the LIGHT/Insects, built to Xyz Summon only insect monsters, granting those Xyz additional effects. Together, these two themes offer unique disruptive elements, giving the pilot soft control over the duel through a variety of means. Whether it is Number 3: Cicada King negating monster effects or Datascape Fox – Xianxian banishing all cards sent from the field to the GY, the Extra Deck is utilized as a toolbox to address a variety of threats! Also, who doesn’t love abusing a cool little bug named Transcicada?

Note: as many of these cards were just revealed, most of the names are YGOrg translations of the OCG text. As these cards are also yet to be released even in the OCG or backed by official rulings, card interactions as they currently stand cannot be fully guaranteed. As always, I’ve provided links to the Yugipedia pages for all of the non-TCG cards in the decklist. Feel free to use those links to fully explore the Datascape theme!

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 a couple of outstanding requests that I am looking into: Amazonness, Cardian, Witchcrafter, Superheavy Samurai, & Simorgh.

Hello everybody! I serve as Number VIII of the Organization; however, my main role is writing Deck Strategy articles and generating non-news content for the site! Gotta love those underused archetypes...
