Creative Deck Profile: Chronicle of the Invoked Witchcrafter, ft. Secret Shiny Box Support

Prepare the Invocation – the Vice-Master has arrived!


Strategic Summary:

Today’s lesson… er… profile, focuses on the Witchcrafter theme. It is an archetype of Spellcaster monsters that use a suite of Witchcrafter Spells that return back from the GY to your hand during the End Phase if you haven’t activated their effect during the turn. This is important because the higher-leveled Witchcrafter monsters discard Spells to disrupt the opponent, such as Witchcrafter Madame Verre who negates all face-up monsters your opponent controls or Witchcrafter Haine who destroys a face-up card. This theme is also known for its potent use of Spell Chronicle, an older continuous spell that lets you tutor 5 Witchcrafter spells from the deck in combination with Witchcrafter Patronus. Where this profile deviates from my previous iteration of Witchcrafter is the addition of Witchcrafter Vice-Master (YGOrg Translation) and Witchcrafter Confusion (YGOrg Translation), their in-theme Fusion Spell.

Vice-Master is the perfect example of one powerful card that improves a theme’s capability by so much – whenever you activate a Spell card/effect, or a non-Fusion Spellcaster monster effect, Vice can add to the chain, either Tutoring a Witchcrafter from the deck, destroying a card on the field, or Recovering a Witchcrafter Spell/Trap from the GY. If you activate multiple Spells or Spellcaster effects, you can even trigger all three effects each turn! This gives you a steady stream of advantage, especially at the low cost of needing a Witchcrafter + any Spellcaster monster as its fusion materials. Enter the Invoked engine, which includes Aleister the Invoker (a Spellcaster), Invocation (it’s own Fusion Spell that can also make Vice-Master), and Invocation‘s GY effect which can trigger an activation of Vice-Master! Plus, if you get multiple copies of Invocation or Witchcrafter Confusion, you can even throw an Invoked Mechaba onto your Witchcrafter board to negate even more of your opponent’s attempts to play the duel. Craft the perfect combo with the Witchcrafters, Fusing their talent with ingenuity with this hybrid strategy!
