CDP: Runick Volcanic – June 2023 Edition

Stretch out your Scattershots.


Strategic Summary:

Welcome to the next Creative Deck Profile, this time inspired by the Semi-Limiting of Runick Fountain in the upcoming June 2023 F/L list. Okay, yes, this might be a bit of a stretch considering the Volcanic cards just hit the OCG, but with how cool they are, I couldn’t just do one profile featuring them. If you missed my first attempt to be a bit more creative, be sure to check it out here. And yes, this profile was made before Bonfire was revealed.

As for today’s profile, this takes all of the new Volcanic cards and dials them up to 11 with the consistency and disruption offered by the Runick archetype. The Runick theme is all about using Quick-Play Spells in succession, then triggering the effect of Runick Fountain to return 3 Runick Spells back into your deck and drawing 3 new cards. While the Semi-Limit does hurt if your opponent is able to banish both of your copies of Fountain, it doesn’t really hurt the consistency of that engine in the deck, as every Runick Quick-Play Spell can Special Summon Hugin the Runick Wings and tutor a copy out. Speaking of tutoring and Hugin, it can also be used to discard something from your hand, such as an unneccessary Volcanic Shell or Volcanic Rimfire you were just dying to trigger early. Oh, also on the Volcanic synergy front, you might just find yourself discarding a copy of Blaze Accelerator Reload, a Continuous Trap most known for being able to be banished from your GY to send a copy of Volcanic Scattershot from your Deck to the GY, triggering its effect to destroy your opponent’s monsters and watch them burn baby burn. Why stop at one alternate win condition when you can have two, when you combine Runick and Volcanic cards together?

    Since you mentioned it, how would you modify it for the 3 bonfires?

      Probably -1 Rocket, +3 bonfire, as you don’t need as many Rocket with the existence of Bonfire. But I don’t really have that much more I’d want to cut out of the Runick side of this deck.
