CDP: S-Force Bystial Branded, ft. Little Opposition

Who asked for more Security?


Strategic Summary:

Welcome back for a new Creative Deck Profile, this time taking the S-Force archetype out for a spin with some newer support cards. If you missed the last time I covered this profile, be sure to check it out here.

Since the last time I covered this archetype, they’ve received yet another key piece of support – a new LINK-1, S-Force Nightchaser. This Cyberse monster is made with any non-Link S-Force monster, and it can target an S-Force monster you control to shuffle it back into your deck, then Special Summon a banished S-Force. This gives your deck yet another way to interact with your banished cards, beyond the previous S-Force Pla-Tina and S-Force Specimen. So how will we get even more banished cards? That’s right, with a LIGHT/DARK archetype, the first thing to turn to will always be the Bystial archetype. The inclusion of the Bystial here serves a second purpose: it also exists as another suite of easily Special Summoned monsters to pump out future Link Material, as the boss monster of this strategy remains S-Force Justify. Plus, who wouldn’t want additional draws from Branded Regained?

Now the other new piece of this deck is the addition of the new Trap Card, Little Opposition (YGOrg Translation). This Trap allows both players to Special Summon 1 Level 2 or lower monster from their deck to their board. While this may seem a bit counterintuitive, giving your opponent a chance to summon something, it is especially good in S-Force due your control over the board already. If they summon something like Knightmare Corruptor Iblee, ensure you have an S-Force Gravitino on your board to make it get banished instead of sent to the GY. S-Force is a control archetype after all. But the inclusion of Little Opposition also works with another new tech card: Edea the Heavenly Squire. This Level 1 Warrior Special Summons any monster with 800 ATK and 1000 DEF from your deck, and guess what, that is the exact statline of S-Force Rappa Chiyomaru. How serendipitous is that!? Check out my new and improved S-Force build in action, they might just might suprise you with their capabilities.
