Cardfight Coalition

Creative Deck Profile: Witchcraft Raider

The Witchcrafting nomads takes a trip to the Boss Stage down the Oregon Trail.


Strategic Summary:

It’s all a holiday for this Spellcaster archetype. The Witchcrafter theme, the primary focus of today’s article, has leveled up. They use their acolytes and a discarded Spell to Special Summon another Witchcrafter from the deck, ending in either Witchcrafter Madame Verre, who negates monster effects, Witchcrafter Haine, which can destroy cards, or Witchcrafter Golem Aruru, which becomes a hand trap. Discarding spells is no problem when you also factor in the fact that the entire Witchcrafter Spell support pool returns to the hand during your end phase, allowing for endless surges of card economy… This surge of cards is the perfect way to describe the two card combo of Witchcrafter Patronus with Spell Chronicle, as Patronous banishes 5 Witchcrafter spells only for you to add them right back to your hand during your opponent’s turn! Finally, the Generaider Bosses add a bit extra disruption on top of everything, giving you enough power to win the day. So learn those spells and construct a masterpiece of a duel! Aruru!!

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 7 outstanding requests that I am considering: Melodious, Heraldic Beasts, Fairy Tail, Amorphage, Magnet Warrior, Virtual World, & Volcanic. Some of my prior requests was covered by participants in CDSS4, so I highly suggest checking that out!

Coming Soon:


Hello everybody! I serve as Number VIII of the Organization; however, my main role is writing Deck Strategy articles and generating non-news content for the site! Gotta love those underused archetypes...
