Raye and Roze engage in combat… Alone Together!
I know – it’s been a while since the Secret Shiny Box support was revealed, but I finally got around to building Pure Sky Striker! The Sky Striker archetype is primarily composed of Spell cards, each primarily able to be activated whenever you control no monsters in the Main Monster Zone. As a result, the theme revolves around Link Summoning, making a variety of Link 1 monsters of different attributes. Sky Striker Ace – Kagari channels FIRE, recovering a Sky Striker Spell from the ashes of your GY when summoned. Sky Striker Ace – Shizuku is the WATER monster, flowing a Sky Striker Spell to hand during the End Phase that isn’t in your GY. Sky Striker Ace – Hayate strikes like the WIND, attacking directly and milling a Sky Striker card to the GY. Together, they’re supported by Sky Striker Ace – Raye and Sky Striker Ace – Roze, two Level 4 Warriors that Special Summon themselves from the GY under specific conditions.
But I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that if you’re reading this, you’ve heard of the Sky Striker theme before. If you haven’t here’s the short version: Sky Striker Mobilize – Engage! tutors everything and is Limited for a reason, Sky Striker Mecha – Widow Anchor negates and/or steals monsters and is your prime disruption, and Sky Striker Mecha Modules – Multirole gives you a ton of free card advantage. What’s new is the addition of Strategic Striker – H.A.M.P. (YGOrg Translation) that serves as an in-archetype Kaiju that can summon to either board, but the more important new card is Sky Striker Mobilize – Linkage! (YGOrg Translation) Linkage does something really cool – it gives the archetype in-theme OTK options. Since Linkage can be used more than once per turn, once you have Raye and Roze in the GY, you can easily chain together attacks from multiple Sky Striker Aces, all during the Battle Phase. Combine that with Pot of Avarice, which basically is an Unlimited Pot of Greed in a deck where you can cycle through 4 Link monsters every turn, and you have a recipe for tons of card advantage backed by a real threat of ending the game on a dime. Don’t sleep on these spells anymore – dust off your Link Summons with the Spelltastic Sky Strikers!
