CDP: Dracoslayer with Performapal, Magician, and Odd-Eyes – Pendulums Aligned! ft. DABL Support

Fusion, Synchro, and Xyz with Pendulums!


Strategic Summary:

Welcome to today’s Creative Deck Profile, focused on the Dracoslayer archetype. This theme features various Pendulum monsters that support specific Dracoslayer Extra Deck options, and it just received incredible support in the DABL set that just released to the TCG! Before I get to the new cards, I have to highlight Ignister Prominence, the Blasting Dracoslayer, as this Level 8 Synchro remains the start of the deck. First, it can summon any Dracoslayer from your Deck, just it can’t be used for a future Synchro Summon, and second, it can target a Pendulum card on the field to destroy, then spin any other card on the field into the deck. Since both of these effects are only soft once-per turn, you can loop multiple copies of this Synchro for insane value, especially if you factor in the new Ignis Phoenix, the Dracoslayer. This Dracoslayer represents the Igknight archetype, and whenever it is destroyed on the field, it summons any Dracoslayer from your deck and treats it as a tuner, giving you even more value. The next new monster represents the Dinomist archetype, Dinomight Powerload, the Dracoslayer, and it triggers when Tributed, adding a face-up Dracoslayer Pendulum monster from the Extra Deck to your hand. Additionally, Powerload’s Pendulum Effect is relevant, allowing you to Special Summon a Dracoslayer in your other Pendulum Zone.

If you’re confused by the tributing part, that actually ties nicely into the Dracoslayer’s Fusion monster, Dinoster Power, the Mighty Dracoslayer. This Level 8 Fusion can be summoned by tributing a Dracoslayer Pendulum and any other Pendulum, and once it’s on your field, it can Special Summon a Dracoslayer from the hand or GY. Lastly, we have the Majespecter representative, Majesty Pegasus, the Dracoslayer, which can tutor any Field Spell when Pendulum Summoned or Summoned via Dracoslayer effect, or you can use its Pendulum effect to tutor another Dracoslayer monster while you have 2 in the Pendulum Zone. Together, these three monsters help provide enough of a core to let the Dracoslayers function as an effective Pendulum Strategy, but today, I threw in a few other ‘Greatest Hits’ from the Pendulum Era, such as Performapal Monkeyboard and Performapal Skullcrobat Joker, and Harmonizing Magician with Purple Poison Magician – you see, all these pendulums work well in unison, especially when you have Beyond the Pendulum in the mix. Embody the swinging power of Pendulum with the Dracoslayers!
