CDP: Laval Bonfire with Infernoble Knight and Volcanic

Gather Round ye FIRE themes and wait for the spark…


Strategic Summary:

Today’s CDP is all about kumbaya around the brand-new Bonfire (YGOrg Translation) Spell Card that tutors any Level 4 or lower Pyro monster. While this can be considered a subpar Reinforcement of the Army given the lack of great targets in the Pyro monster pool, there is still a few shining stars that stand out. First up is Agnimal Candle (YGOrg Translation), a Level 4 Pyro Tuner that Special Summons itself from the hand when tutored by something like Bonfire. Agnimal also has a neat trick – it can modify its Level up to thrice per turn, giving you the exact Leveled Tuner that you need for Synchro Summon combos. This is important as we get to the first major archetype, the Laval, as they struggle having only a Level 1 and a Level 3 Tuner to reliably call upon. Speaking of the Laval archetype, I’m sure that you’ve heard of this archetype and its abuse of the Spell Card Rekindling. This Spell Special Summons as many FIRE monsters from your GY with 200 DEF, and the Laval archetype features Laval Archer, Laval Volcano Handmaiden, and Laval Lakeside Lady that all meet that criteria.

But that’s not all – due to the effect of Handmaiden, Laval can mill all 5 FIRE monsters with a single copy of their themed Spell, Molten Conduction Field. This means that your Rekindling will be providing maximum value, letting you Synchro Summon to no end, giving you even more draws with T.G. Hyper Librarian and Lavalval Salamander along the way. But historically, this gameplan comes with one major dependency – you needed that Rekindling to make plays. Hence my inclusion of the final archetype here, the Infernoble Knights. This group of FIRE Warrior monsters offer a variety of ways to extend your plays, whether it is the GY effect of Infernoble Knight – Ricciardetto (YGOrg Translation) to the ability to Special Summon Infernoble Knight – Turpin (YGOrg Translation) from the GY, or even just the extra draw from shuffling back 3 FIRE Warriors with Infernoble Knight Maugis. As you’ll see in the replays, this deck will be burning up in no time with all of your Pyro monsters, Blaster, Dragon Ruler of Infernos, and the Synchro monsters you’ll be putting to the board.

… But wait there’s more! The new Volcanic support in the recent FIRE Duelist Pack has given the Laval theme yet another way to get a Laval Volcano Handmaiden to the GY in the form of Fire Ejection (YGOrg Translation). And if you already have a Molten Conductor Field, or some other way to get Handmaiden to the GY, you can choose to send Volcanic Rimfire (YGOrg Translation) or Volcanic Emperor (YGOrg Translation) instead, giving you another win condition. Because the Laval theme can banish Pyro monsters naturally, you can easily deal upwards of 4000 dmg with each summon of Emperor, and that will add up quickly over time. Join the campfire singalong as we hail eruptions of FIRE with the Laval.
