Creative Deck Profile: Heraldic Beast Time Thief, ft. Time Thief Adjuster

Time for a Chronobreak with this Xyz-centric Strategy!


Strategic Summary:

This R4NK strategy combines a number of archetypes, all with the goal of disrupting your opponent through various means and the power of Xyz monsters. The Heraldic Beast archetype features many different options for getting multiple Level 4 monsters to the field, the best of which is Charged-Up Heraldry. This lets you summon monsters such as Heraldic Beast Leo or Heraldic Beast Unicorn straight from the deck, to exploit their GY effects later in the turn. On the other hand, they also have Advanced Heraldry Art at their disposal to bring back two Heraldic materials for an immediate summon! On the other end of the time continuum, the Time Thief archetype provides an explosive burst of Xyz material to the field with minimal prior setup. While far and away the best starter option is Time Thief Regulator, the deck also has alternative lines of play now with the new Time Thief Adjuster (YGOrg Translation) which will be debuting in Ghosts from the Past in the TCG. Finally, the strategy is all tied together with the last bow of a PSY-Frame engine, as Time Thief Redoer easily triggers PSY-Frame Lambda‘s search effect. So dive right into the time stream with this hybrid combination and change your future.

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 7 outstanding requests that I am considering: Melodious, Amorphage, Magnet Warrior, F.A., Vendread, Virtual World, & Volcanic. Some of my prior requests was covered by participants in CDSS4, so I highly suggest checking that out!
