New techs embaced by the WIND Ritual theme!
Welcome back to another Creative Deck Profile, this time revisiting the Shinobird archetype, led by Shinobaron Peacock and Shinobaroness Peacock. Be sure to check out my last iteration at exploring this archetype here, as not much has changed since that last video, except for one major tech choice – the Vaylantz Field Spells.
The Vaylantz Field Spells, Vaylantz World – Konig Wissen and Vaylantz World – Shinra Bansho can be used to move a monster from the Main Monster Zone to the Spell & Trap Zone, and vice versa, accordingly. Each can be activated to your Field Zone to place the other on the opponent’s field, ensuring that both will be active and that your opponent has a Spell/Trap card on their field. This is especially important, as Shinobaroness Peacock NEEDS the opponent to control a Spell/Trap to spin back into the deck, in order to Special Summon a Spirit monster directly from your deck. Nine times out of ten, you will be summoning Amano-Iwato, which then prevents all monsters from activating their effects except for Spirit monsters. Since it was Special Summoned, Amano won’t even return to hand during the End Phase, giving you that blanket negation until your opponent can get it off the board. If your opponent does try to eliminate your Rock Spirit, just turn to something like Urgent Ritual Art and Shinobaron Peacock to wipe away their attempts with the flurish of a few feathers. Serve your WIND Rituals with a dose of Vaylantz and watch your prospects soar!
