Strategic Summary:

The Nephthys archetype, consisting of WIND Spellcaster and FIRE Winged Beast monsters, is a Ritual theme unlike any other as its monsters exist to serve as a powerful Link turbo engine. In today’s profile, I’m particularly featuring their new support card, Connector of Nephthys, which we posted last week. But this is more than just another support card for a useless theme, Connector truly revitalizes the strategy, providing unparalleled consistency to generating the Mist Valley Apex Avian infinite negate lock in addition to a Link 4 of your choosing (or in perfect scenarios, 2 additional Link 4s). Oh, and you also set up 2 Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys to return from the GY on your following turn to wipe your opponent’s backrow options. Interested yet? Then check out the Nephthys as they blaze once more in all their glory!

NOTE: The video was designed to showcase breaking boards and playing through disruption in particular, as showing unbreakable boards for 10 minutes just isn’t the most exciting thing to watch. But in actuality, the deck wants to go first and utterly prevent the opponent from playing.

As an aside, I’ve also written at length about this theme in a prior Creative Deck Strategy, offering three variants heavily involving the Impcantation archetype, which you can access here: CDS: Sacred ImpcantationsThat said, the archetype no longer needs such a large Impcantation engine, as it now has plenty of options to get the link spam going! Hopefully this video helps to convince you of that, and showcase how special of a theme the Nephthys can truly be, even outside of Duel Links!

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 a couple of outstanding requests that I am looking into: Cardian, Digital Bug, Witchcrafter, Superheavy Samurai, & Simorgh.
