Creative Deck Profile: There Can Only Be One S-Force, ft. BACH Support

Allow me to Justify the Retroactive coverage with the Gravitino it deserves.


Strategic Summary:

Another day another profile, this time centered on the S-Force archetype. First things first, be sure to check out my last take on this archetype here. These S-Force are a set of Spellcasters, Warriors, Cyberses, Psychics, and a Fiend, all thrown together to control the duel and chase down victory. It begins with S-Force Rappa Chiyomaru, who can banish an S-Force card from the hand to return itself back to hand and Special Summon an S-Force monster from the deck. With that, you can summon out S-Force Gravitino to tutor any other S-Force card, or if you banished Gravitino, you can summon S-Force Pla-Tina to Special Summon your banished Gravitino. As an alternative line of play, S-Force Retroactive can return itself to the hand to Special Summon another S-Force from the hand, so even if you don’t have Rappa, you can get your monsters onto the board with ease, not to mention S-Force Bridgehead to tutor any S-Force monster. All of these plays lead to S-Force Justify, a Link 3 monster which banishes any monsters it points to when it attacks, plus it can negate an opponent’s monster and move it to a column that Justify points to. That’s right – this is also a deck that relies on column plays.

You see, I chose to ignore a key part of each S-Force monster. Rappa forces your opponent’s monsters in the same column as an S-Force monster to only target a monster in its column for attacks. Gravitino makes any opponent’s monster in an S-Force’s column get banished whenever it would leave the field. Pla-Tina reduces the ATK by 600 of all monsters in the same column as an S-Force, and while I didn’t mention him yet, S-Force Razor prevents them from being used as a Link Summon for a Link 3 or higher monster. If you can’t tell, this is a heavy control theme – with the help of There Can Only Be One, your opponent will be left with minimal options to fight back. And if they try, S-Force Chase is an in-theme Trap ready to wipe face-up cards your opponent controls back to the hand… or banished, if they’re monsters in the same column as S-Forces while you control Gravitino. Reinforce Truth and S-Force Specimen ensures you have S-Force monsters on your board to spare, leaving your opponent with minimal options and a very sad chance at victory. Force your way to a secure future with the S-Force.
