Creative Deck Profile: Worship the Angelic Statues, Megalith Dogmatika

Combine the sacred rituals with Ritual Summoning!

Replays:

Strategic Summary:

You’ve seen Dogmatika merged with a ton of other themes, but how about Megalith this time for a stony twist? As I’ve discussed plenty in my profiles, the Dogmatika theme is a highly versatile group of LIGHT Spellcasters that function by restricting the usage of your Extra Deck. Instead, they send Extra Deck monsters directly to the GY, which can be leveraged to your advantage with monsters like Herald of the Arc Light. Dogmatika Ecclesia, the Virtuous kicks off the show by tutoring any Dogmatika card when summoned, but today’s build also features a small Dogmatika ritual engine in the form of White Knight of Dogmatika and Dogmatikalamity. If you want to see Dogmatika fully ritualed out, be sure to check out my CDS: Let’s Build here. Plus with all the sending from the Extra Deck to the GY, you can also effectively use a Shaddoll Schism engine, since El Shaddoll Apkallone can tutor it whenever sent to the GY. But enough about Dogmatika things, let’s talk about the Mega cool part of this strategy.

The Megalith archetype consists of EARTH/Rock Statues that serve as the tools to Ritual Summon each other. The Level 4 Megaliths can Ritual Summon any Ritual from the hand, as long as you use that Megalith as tribute, and the Level 8 Megaliths can discard themselves to Ritual Summon another Megalith. In particular, you’ll probably be summoning Megalith Ophiel the most, which tutors a Megalith monster on summon, or Megalith Hagith, which tutors a Megalith Spell/Trap. The true star of this theme is Megalith Phul, a Level 2 Ritual that recovers a Ritual monster from your GY on summon, then Phul copies the recovered card’s level. Additionally, it can trigger a Ritual Summon of a Megalith from your hand OR deck during either player’s Main Phase. This is especially powerful when used to Ritual Summon Megalith Bethor, which destroys cards your opponent controls up to the number of Ritual monsters with different names in your GY. Beyond just the Megaliths, I’m also using a Diviner of the Herald engine alongside Cyber Petit Angel to tutor Cyber Angel Benten – more searching while tributing monsters for Ritual Summons is ALWAYS appreciated. Kneel before the might of the Megalith Dogmatika hybrid strategy – your opponent’s will be left praying over their spilled LP alright.
