Creative Deck Profile: Laval’s Infernoble Knight, ft. Lavalval Salamander & Laval Archer

Erupt with the power of FIRE monsters with the new support!

Replays:

Strategic Summary:

The Laval theme will receive two beneficial support cards in the upcoming Selection 10 set in the OCG (And announced to be in the Ghosts from the Past set in the TCG), so why not blaze a path forward with a cool hybrid build. Leaning upon the Infernoble Knights, this combination allows for plays that burn the deck down to power options through Laval’s milling power, followed by Rekindling to convert insane advantage and strong Synchro boards. The benefit of the Noble Knights is the FIRE overlap as well as the ability to search or recycle Laval Blaster, a monster that mills 5 as a cost. Add in the disruptive power of an Emperor Charles and the protection by the equipping Infernoble Knights, and you are set to win the duel through Synchro Summons. But the ultimate field clearer for the deck is Lavalval Dragon, able to clear your opponent’s monsters back to the hand! Beyond all these older support, the new cards offer draw power, board breaking, and more options from the GY, especially with subpar hands, so hope you enjoy seeing them in action! Erupt with the power of Lavals and French Knights!

Note: As many of these cards were recently revealed, most of the names used below are YGOrg translations of the OCG text. As these cards are also yet to be released even in the OCG or backed by official rulings, card interactions as they currently stand cannot be fully guaranteed. As always, I’ve provided links to the Yugipedia pages for all of the non-TCG cards in the decklist. Feel free to use those links to fully explore the improved Laval archetype!

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 4 outstanding requests that I am considering: Witchcrafter, Melodious, Heraldic Beasts, & Volcanic. Some of my prior requests was covered by participants in CDSS4, so I highly suggest checking that out!
