CDP: Exosister Spirit Bystial

Another three-theme hybrid gets a spotlight!


Strategic Summary:

Today’s CDP takes three archetypes with differing playstyles and throws them together in one hybrid strategy. The first, and dominant archetype, is the Exosister, a group of LIGHT Spellcasters that Rank-Up into LIGHT Warrior Xyz monsters. Unlike many Xyz archetypes, the Main Deck Exosister monsters each carry an effect that lets you Xyz Summon using just one copy – those effects triggers whenever a card leaves your opponent’s GY. This gives you access to threats like Exosister Mikailis, which can banish a card your opponent controls and tutor an Exosister Spell/Trap, or Exosister Asophiel, which prevents any card effects from activating in the GY the rest of the turn. Leading the charge in the Main Deck is Exosister Martha, who can Special Summon itself from the hand and bring an Exosister Elis from your Deck with her. This obviously gives you a great Xyz setup, but Martha is the key to unlocking multiple Xyz Summons on the same turn, giving you the ability to overlay 2 Rank 4 Xyz monsters into Exosisters Magnifica, a Rank 8 monster that also can banish a card your opponent controls as a Quick Effect!

While the Exosister theme can be extremely efficient at dominating a duel, sometimes they can be just one material short from an additional Xyz Summon that can help them win a duel. Enter the Spirit engine, consisting of Aratama and Sakitama. Aratama is a Level 4 Spirit monster that tutors any Spirt upon Normal Summon, and Sakitama can reveal itself in the hand to immediately Normal Summon a Spirit. Since both are Level 4, this engine greatly improves any Rank 4 Xyz Deck it joins! As for the last archetype in play today, that would be the Bystials. This theme of DARK Dragon monsters gives this deck a suite of hand traps that can descend onto the board, and banish away any LIGHT or DARK threats in the GYs. If you really want to be creative, you can even use their support card, Etude of the Branded, to Synchro Summon Chaos Angel during your opponent’s turn using any Level 6 Bystial monster, such as Bystial Saronir or Bystial Baldrake, and any Level 4 Exosister. The dependability of the Exosisters, combined with the additional power and interactivity of the Spirit and Bystial engines make this strategy a force to be reckoned with. Enjoy the Returnia of the Exosisters!
