CDP: Ursarctic Raviel with Drytron ft. DUNE Support

Star-crossed archetypes with a Shimmering Scraper.


Strategic Summary:

Welcome to today’s Creative Deck Profile, featuring the return of Ursarctic to my channel in a clean and simple way. The Ursarctic archetype consists of various WATER Beast and Beast-Warrior monsters that Special Summon themselves from the hand, typically by tributing another Level 7 or higher monster from the hand. They are also split into Level 8 Tuners that disrupt, such as Ursarctic Megabilis that banishes a card in the opponent’s GY, and Level 7 non-Tuners that provide resources, such as Ursarctic Mikbilis that Special Summons another Ursarctic from the hand. The theme’s North Star is Ursarctic Radition, a Continuous Spell that lets you draw a card each time an Ursarctic monster is Special Summoned from the hand or Extra Deck, up to 7 times. That is, unless you remove a spent Radiation from your field, such as via the effect of Ursarctic Grand Chariot, and activate another one! Ultimately, the goal of this archetype is to Special Summon Ursarctic Polari from the Extra Deck by sending a Level 8 Tuner and a Level 7 non-Tuner to the GY, then eventually sending a Level 8 Tuner with that Polari to Special Summon Ursarctic Septentrion, the Level 7 Synchro boss that negates the effects of any monster on the field without a Level, Special Summoned from the Extra Deck.

Where this theme has truly gotten interesting is the additional support it’s received to tie the Drytron and Ursarctic themes together. First came Ultimate Flagship Ursatron, a Level 7 Fusion monster that could tutor and recover Ursarctic monsters, and now we’re receiving two more in DUNE! First to discuss is the new Level 1 Synchro, Ursarctic Polar Star (YGOrg Translation), which can be Special Summoned via the same method as Polari. Unlike Polari which can Special Summon from the GY, Polar Star can tribute a Level 8 Ursarctic and itself to Special Summon a Level 7 Ursarctic Synchro monster, which also happens to prevent your opponent from activating the effects of monsters Special Summoned from the Extra Deck with a Level. The best part is that Polar Star is NOT once per turn, so you can abuse the heck out of various Ursarctic support cards that let you skip the Tribute to activate an Ursarctic effect, such as Ursarctic Big Dipper, Ursarctic Drytron, and Ursarctic Departure. The other new card is Ultimate Knight Alpha Ursatron (YGOrg Translation), a Level 8 non-Tuner that can be Special Summoned from the hand by controlling anothr Ursarctic monster, then when you do, you also tutor an Ursarctic or Drytron card!

Onto the last piece of this build to discuss – the Sacred Beast engine! Leading the way here and serving as our Normal Summon for the deck is Dark Beckoning Beast. This monster, when summoned, can tutor any card that lists any of the Sacred Beasts in its text, such as Opening of the Spirit Gates and Raviel, Lord of Phantasms – Shimmering Scraper. Opening is important because it provides access to Beckoning, but it also keeps recovering Beckoning back from the GY as many times as you would like. Additionally, it can recover other Continuous Spells that have fallen to the GY while you control a Level 10 or higher monster, such as the aforementioned Radiation. But the biggest and brightest piece of synergy here is Raviel itself, as it is a Level 10 monster that can add itself back to hand to be Tributed later to Special Summon another Ursarctic monster. In a pinch, you can even bring it out by tributing 3 monsters, but you’ll typically just use it as very pretty Tribute fodder. So shoot for the stars with all of these Ursarctic monsters – the new support is just that super cool!

    Eldlich Ursarctic is a neat package too. 3x Lord, 3x Land, and a few traps
