Creative Deck Profile: Trickstar Live – Link Burn

These tricky fairies are back with crazy card interactions and a ton of effect damage.


Strategic Summary:

While the Trickstar have a variety of plays at their disposal in the Extra Deck toolbox to unleash ridiculous amounts of burn damage, it is their combination with Dark Room of Nightmare that can result in absurd swings of damage, sometimes even on the first turn! Throw in their latest OCG support card, Trickstar Fes (YGOrg Translation), and you have basically unlimited access to any of their Link monsters as well – as long as you’re fine with being locked into Trickstars for the turn. Trickstar Holly Angel racks up 200 damage a summon, but that easily rises higher if you have Dark Room or Trickstar Light Stage on the field. If you aren’t scared of that much damage… just take a look at the first replay! This may not be your standard Trickstar build that used to be meta, but it definitely can shine as you burn away your opponent’s hopes and dreams. After all, it isn’t over until the fat lady sings… or Bella Madonna does!

Note: This is continuing the style of Creative Deck Profile articles, designed to showcase a build through replays rather than through a long article. If you wish to see a CDP for an archetype, theme, or strategy you love, feel free to private message me on the YGOrg Discord server, the comments section of any of my YouTube videos, or just post a comment in response to this article on our Facebook page with your ideas to keep under consideration! On most YGO-related communities my username is Quincymccoy, so feel free to reach out.

As of now, I have 6 outstanding requests that I am looking into: Witchcrafter, Melodious, Appliancer, Psychic, Heraldic Beasts, & Dinomist.
