CDP: Synchron Zombie, Need for Synchro, ft. DUNE Support

Launch yourself into undying Synchro Summons!


Strategic Summary:

Today’s profile leverages the new Synchron cards from the upcoming Duelist Nexus set to take this Synchro-heavy strategy even faster than ever before. As with any Synchron deck nowadays, the star of the deck is by far Junk Speeder, a Level 5 Synchro monster that Special Summons as many Synchron Tuners from your Deck as possible, as long as they have different Levels. While the Synchron deck is no stranger to turning this one monster into endless possibilities, you now have the option to do even better combos with the upcoming release of Wheel Synchron (YGOrg Translation) and Revolution Synchron (YGOrg Translation). Wheel Synchron is a Level 5 monster, that can be treated as a non-Tuner for a Synchro Summon, that carries an ignition effect to Normal Summon a Level 4 or lower monster. Lastly, it can be banished from your GY to reduce the level of a Synchro Monster by up to 4, letting a Synchro more efficiently serve as Synchro Material. Revolution Synchron on the other hand is a new Level 3 Tuner, that can be used as material from the hand when you would Synchro Summon a Level 7 or 8 Dragon Synchro monster, and it also carries an effect to Special Summon itself back as a Level 1 Tuner from your GY. All of these effects facilitate more unique combinations of levels for Synchro Summoning, adding to the already robust Synchron tuner suite of Stardust Synchron, Jet Synchron, and Assault Synchron.

But I’ve talked enough about Tuners, let’s talk about the more important half, the non-Tuners! And that’s where our Zombie engine comes in. By far, the best non-Tuner in the deck is Beast of the Pharaoh, a Level 3 Zombie that allows you to Special Summon a Level 4 or lower Zombie monster from the GY when used for a Synchro Summon. Since this includes itself, it is a looping non-tuner that repeatedly keeps coming back for more. The rest of the Zombies in this deck are all about getting you to that Pharaoh, whether it is Gozuki to mill one to the GY, Mezuki to Special Summon more Zombies from your GY, or Goblin Zombie and Immortal Dragon to tutor all of the above. And lastly, since so many of those supporting Zombies are Level 4, it only makes sense to include a Rokket Synchron engine with 3 Quick Launch, as that’s just another way to Synchro Summon that Junk Speeder!

Now what about the Synchro monsters included in this build? Glad you asked – Baronne de Fleur, Bystial Dis Pater (YGOrg Translation), Crystal Wing Synchro Dragon, and Herald of the Arc Light serve as your primary Synchro monsters for interrupting the opponent, as each carries an effect to negate and/or destroy something. Before going into these threats to end your board, I highly encourage making PSY-Framelord Omega and Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier to thin out your opponent’s hand. Then lastly, Accel Synchro Stardust Dragon, Garden Rose Maiden, and Cupid Pitch serve as extenders, allowing you to combo even further with your Extra Deck! Finally, you might be questioning the two Nekroz tech options that I’ve included here – with a typical Synchron + Pharaoh combo, you can easily end on double Arc Light. Once sent to the GY, each can tutor Nekroz of Sophia and Nekroz Cycle, giving you the ability to completely lock the opponent out of the Extra Deck for the turn – even if your opponent does break through all of your disruptive options! Accelerate to Synchro Speed with the Synchrons and Zombies!
