Creative Deck Profile: Ghostrick Night Terrors, ft. BACH Support

Halloween content over a month early? Sue me.


Strategic Summary:

Welcome back for another profile, this time centering on the scary woes of the Ghostrick archetype. This DARK archetype of scary yet cute monsters is all about flipping facedown and back faceup, disrupting the opponent by stalling through hand traps, then winning the game through direct attacks. This clearly presented a major issue with the arrival of Link monsters who couldn’t be set face-down. Fast forward all the way to 2021 when the theme finally has a way to win the duel with the new support cards! Ghostrick Siren (YGOrg Translation) is one of the first cards in quite a while to not be locked to once per turn, easily searching out the rest of your Ghostrick support Spells/Traps. Ghostrick Shot (YGOrg Translation) gives the theme recovery without forcing your recovered monsters into facedown defense, while also flipping your monsters an additional time. And finally, Ghostrick Festival (YGOrg Translation) is the theme’s first Link monster, a Link 1 that enables direct attacks so long as you control a Ghostrick Field Spell!

Despite these three new cards being super good for the strategy, the deck is not shy on other power cards. Whether it is Ghostrick Angel of Mischief, a Rank 4 that can use other Ghostrick Xyzs as material and can search other Ghostrick cards straight from the deck, or Ghostrick Renovation, a trap that lets you activate any Field Spell directly from your deck, this theme has great options… Considering the theme’s own field spells, check out Ghostrick Parade for some fun search power, or Ghostrick Museum for additional disruptive capability. However, there is one major gap that the theme can struggle with, if you didn’t notice it in the video – the start of the duel. All Ghostrick monsters cannot be Normal Summoned unless you already control a Ghostrick monster, a limitation that can be debilitating if you don’t have a way to get the duel rolling. Even though I’m leaving that problem for you to solve, I invite you to take the plunge for yourself and enter the Haunted House… the Ghostrick are waiting to give you a treat!
