Creative Deck Profile: Amplifire Symphonic Warrior Karakuri, ft. DIFO Support

Turn up the volume, this is a concert you don’t want to miss!


Strategic Summary:

The Symphonic Warrior have finally found the beat of their own drum with the arrival of the key new support cards in Dimension Force. Let’s start off with Symphonic Warrior Deejays (YGOrg Translation), the perfect bridge of new and old support. Let’s begin with his monster effect – when summoned, Deejays Special Summons a Symphonic from your deck into facedown DEF, or if you have Symph Amplifire on the field, it just Special Summons another Symphonic from the deck. In most cases, you’ll be summoning Symphonic Warrior Synthess, the older FLIP monster from the archetype that tutors another Symphonic when flipped face-up. On the other hand, Deejay’s Pendulum effect lets you flip a facedown Symphonic Warrior faceup, then whenever another Symphonic activates its effect, Deejays can summon itself from the Pend Zone. As you probably can guess, this works extremely well with Synthess, but it also synergizes with the Pendulum effect of the other new monster, Symphonic Warrior Guitaris (YGOrg Translation), which can return itself and another Symphonic to the hand. Additionally, Guitaris can Special Summon itself from the hand while you control your Symph Amplifire. Since there’s clearly a connection to your Symph Amplifire Field Spell, let’s cover how you’re getting that next. Dress Rehearsal (YGOrg Translation) is a new Continuous Spell that tutors Symph Amplifire whenever a Symphonic is Summoned – PERFECT!

Both Symph Amplifire and Dress Rehearsal introduce the other aspect of this deck – Symphonic Counters. Whenever you activate the effect of a Symphonic card, Pendulum or Monster, a counter is added to your Amplifire and Rehearsal. Rehearsal can remove 3 of these counters to tutor a Symphonic Warrior monster, Symphonic Warrior Miccs can remove 3 counters to Special Summon itself from the hand (then grant you an extra Normal Summon), and Amplifire can remove 5 counters from itself to burn your opponent 300 dmg for each Symphonic on the field. Better yet, Amplifire can remove 7 counters from itself to banish cards your opponent controls or that is in their GY up to the number of Symphonic on the field. Either way, this can be a powerful effect, especially when you can so easily rack up Symphonic Counters from effect activations.

Enough about the Symphonic Warriors themselves though, let’s talk about their ways to win in my build. First up, I’m including an Odd-Eyes Advent Ritual engine, featuring Odd-Eyes Pendulumgraph Dragon (YGOrg Translation), the new cover card that debuts as the first Ritual Pendulum, and Odd-Eyes Gravity Dragon. Due to the existence of Symphonic Warrior Basses, your Symphonics can easily rack up levels to be perfect fodder for a Ritual Summon – or you can just Pendulum Summon out your Pendulumgraph with your 0-8 or 0-10 Symphonic Scales. Secondly, I’m running a Karakuri engine to make the most of all the machines and endless Pendulum Synchro materials. And lastly, there’s always the ATK boost of 100 for all Symphonic Warriors for each Symphonic Counter on Symph Amplifire – that really does stack up quite nicely. Rock on with the new Symphonic Warriors!
