Creative Deck Profile: Some Men Just Like to Watch the World Burn, ft. HC01 and DIFO Support

Three Burn profiles in one video, hope you brought marshmallows.


Strategic Summaries:

Welcome to a special profile with three burn builds stuffed into one fun profile. First up, we have Red-Eyes Burn, a deck built to elegantly FTK the opponent with the power of all the effect damage at the Red-Eyes-player’s disposal. Between Inferno Fire Blast and Meteor Black Comet Dragon, you can easily wipe out your opponent’s dreams, sometimes even before they make a move. That said, this strategy has been heavily supported by the new Red-Eyes Soul (YGOrg Translation) and Red-Eyes Black Meteor Dragon (YGOrg Translation), both of which give the deck significantly more longevity and consistency should the FTK gameplan fail. The burn goal here is to resolve multiple Inferno Fire Blast or a Blast and a Soul as soon as possible, through Serial Spell and Left Arm Offering if need be! Finally, this deck employs a strategic Rokket engine to blast ahead of your opponent with a Quick Launch!

Moving along to build two, we have a CHAIN Burn strategy, that earns its chaining name by playing all the chain cards. That’s right, we’re running Chain Destruction, Chain Healing, Suprise Chain (YGOrg Translation), Accumulated Fortune, and the iconic Chain Strike. Alongside all of these fun cards are the strongest burn cards from the modern game, like Secret Blast, Secret Barrel, and the perfect hand-trap for the deck, Mahaama the Fairy Dragon. Don’t forget some good old classic burners, like Ceasefire or Just Desserts! Unshackle your deepest burning desires with the Chain Burn strategy, revitalized for some fun!

Lastly, I couldn’t run a burn profile without my favorite Burn archetype in the game, so let’s throw in some Trickstar FTK! This build has been streamlined since my original Trickstar Live – Link Burn profile, featuring Dark Room of Nightmare to endlessly tack on 300 Extra points of damage. Your opponent will definitely descend into nightmares after playing against this one. Trickstar Festival lets you launch into a flurry of summons, and Angel with Blue Tears (YGOrg Translation) is a great new Spell to chalk up even more damage in tandem with Trickstar Bloom. With this strategy, duels typically end in one of two ways – a Trickstar Reincarnation + Droll & Lock Bird victory, or a good old fashion burnfest. I’ll let you guess which win condition of this build are featured here… it isn’t that hard friends.
