CDP: Purery Time Thief, Exceeding the Overlay Network, ft. DBAD Support

Nothing like a pure knockoff Eevee.


Strategic Summary:

Welcome to another Creative Deck Profile, this time centered upon the Purery archetype. This archetype revolves around Purery (YGOrg Translation), a Level 1 LIGHT Fairy that excavates the top 3 cards to tutor a Purery Spell/Trap when summoned, but more importantly, can reveal a Purery Quick-Play Spell to Special Summon an Xyz monster (as an Xyz Summon) that mentions it using both Purery and the Spell as material. For example, Purery Happy Memory (YGOrg Translation) can be used to Xyz Summon Epurery Happiness (YGOrg Translation), a Rank 2 Xyz that tutors any Purery card after it battles. The best option (in my opinion) is typically Epurery Plump (YGOrg Translation), summoned by revealing Purery Delicious Memory (YGOrg Translation), as it can carry a Quick Effect to attach up to 2 S/Ts from either GY as Xyz Material. As an additional effect shared by all the Purery Rank 2 Xyz monsters, when a Purery Quick-Play Spell is activated, they can attach that spell as Xyz Material and gain an extra effect, such as Epurery Beauty (YGOrg Translation) changing the battle position of a monster or Plump banishing a monster on the field until the End Phase. EIther way, all of these stacked materials lead to two options – Expurery Happiness (YGOrg Translation) and Expurery Noir (YGOrg Translation). These Rank 7 Xyz monsters can be stacked on top of a Rank 2 monster with 5 or more material, offering an offensive and defensive boss. Happiness can negate the effects of all face-up monsters your opponent controls plus inflict 1500 when it declares an attack, and Noir can detach 2 material (sometimes even as a Quick Effect) to spin a card back to the deck. Together, these twin bosses give the deck enough oomph to win duels.

So let’s talk about the other half of the strategy at play today, and that’s the Time Thieves. This Rank 4-centric theme centers around Time Thief Redoer, a Rank 4 Xyz that attaches the top card of the opponent’s deck as Xyz material during each Standby Phase, in addition to carrying an effect to detach materials of differing card types for various effects. Where the two themes intersect well is their ability to complement each other in stacking tons of materials under Xyz monsters. Whether it is Time Thief Perpetua stacking a Time Thief card each turn or utilizing Time Thief Hack and Stoic Challenge to give Xyz monsters overpowering ATK based off of their number of Xyz Materials, the two themes work in harmony to defeat their opponents with exceeding strength. And as with all Xyz themes, they always have a Divine Arsenal AA-ZEUS – Sky Thunder waiting in the wings if necessary. Embrace the pure happiness of traveling through time down memory lane with Purery and the Time Thieves.
