CDP: Fabled Runick Control with Trickstar Reincarnation

Another Triple hybrid build for the Runick!


Strategic Summary:

It’s time for another cool Runick strategy, this time deploying two more archetypes! First things first, be sure to check out my other Runick decks here, and here, and here for more details on how the theme works. Today’s build asks the question – what if you could utilize the leftover Runick Fusion monsters as Synchro Material? Answer – Make all of the Fabled Synchros. The Fabled archetype consists of a group of LIGHT Fiends and Beasts that interact heavily with discarding. Probably this archetype is most known for turbo loops featuring Fabled Ragin, a Level 5 Synchro that lets you draw up to 2 cards in hand when Synchro Summoning. This was commonly played with De-Synchro and other turbo options to make Shooting Quasar Dragon, back when an omni-negate was a unique effect. Nowadays, the Fabled theme has to rely on more of its other tricks. In its recent wave of legacy support, the archetype received Fabled Andwraith, a Level 6 Synchro that gives your opponent a choice – discard 1 or let you draw 2 then discard 1. The choice is theirs, but if they discard a monster, Andwraith lets you steal it for your board. The final and most important Fabled Synchro in play today is The Fabled Unicore, a Level 4 Synchro that negates any card or effect your opponent activates while you both have the same number of cards in hand.

So what do these Fabled monsters have to do with the Runick archetype? Well, The Fabled Cerburrel is a start, a Level 2 Tuner that Special Summons itself when discarded to the GY. It just happens that Hugin the Runick Wings is a Level 2 Fusion that discards to tutor Runick Fountain, perfect to make Unicore. Or Munin the Runick Wings is a Level 3 Fusion that discards to tutor Runick Allure, perfect to make Ragin. Or Geri the Runick Fangs is a Level 4 Fusion that recovers an Allure or Fountain, before being used as Synchro Material for Andrwaith. Any way you slice it, these two themes work great in parallel. The other Fabled monster at play here is The Fabled Abanc, which can discard a Fabled monster to Special Summon itself from the GY, giving you 2 Tuners! As for the last piece of this deck, the Trickstar archetype lives here for one reason – tutor Trickstar Reincarnation and go hard to mill out your opponent. Just look at the last replay, this deck was able to fully mill out the opponent during the Draw Phase of their first turn! Take this weird hybrid for a spin and you won’t be disappointed, for its power is truly Fabled.
