There are no strings on this Gizmek Legend…
Darkness descends on these lands, as the Gimmick Puppets have returned stronger than ever! The Gimmick Puppet archetype is an Xyz-based theme that centers around Rank 8s and is one of the best at utilizing Rank-Up-Magic Argent Chaos Force. By overusing the GY as a second source of recurring Level 8 monsters, the Gimmick Puppets have always been able to field one or two R8NK monsters in a turn, but my approach to this strategy extends that to three or more! And this is all due to the Gizmek archetype benefiting any Machine theme featuring machines with equal ATK/DEF. It also helps that Gizmek Orochi, the Serpentron Sky Slasher is a DARK Level 8 itself, but the true synergy lies with Gizmek Taniguku, the Immobile Intellect to serve as a second version of Gimmick Puppet Dreary Doll at turning the GY into more boom boom pow.
Now that we’ve unpacked this synergy a bit, let’s get into the featured card for this build, Laundry Trap (YGOrg Translation). This Continuous Trap lets you continuously mill the top card of your deck each time you Normal or Special Summon a monster. Combine this with the Gizmek and Gimmick’s love of the GY, and you can create a continuous chain of summons and refueling until you have an Argent Force in the GY to go for game. For the win condition of this deck is using Number 40: Gimmick Puppet of Strings to place String Counters on all monsters, then following that up with a Number C40: Gimmick Puppet of Dark Strings to destroy all monsters with String Counters, inflict effect damage equal to the highest ATK of a destroyed monster, then drawing a card, then attacking for game after your opponent is left defenseless. If that isn’t enough, just make another Strings… or two… haha. Become the master mechanical puppeteer with these Gimmicky Gizmeks!
