Creative Deck Strategy: Let’s Build Crystal Valiants, ft. HC01 and TAMA Support

Form Noble, Chaotic, Crystaline Combos with guest engines!


Let’s Build Description:

Welcome back for another Let’s Build video – hopefully a welcomed return to the format. Note: You should check out my two videos on Engines and Engines Part II as well, deep diving into some of the ones appearing here. This content is longform, as it includes walking through each card in a deckbuild in detail for a certain theme, explaining their purpose along the way, then resulting in a fully built strategy showcased in a handful of replays. As this is different than most of my videos, please let me know if you’d like to see more of these ‘Let’s Build!’ videos, and if you would, which archetype(s) would you like to see featured.

If you’re not interested in my reasoning for specific cards or engines, feel free to skip to the test duels at the end – these model a similar approach to most of my other profiles.

Note: As of recording, some TCG names were not fully confirmed, so I was using the previous YGOrg translated names.

Note: Next week I’ll return to a full week of my style of Creative Deck Profile articles, designed to showcase a build through replays and an attached summary. 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. Current pending requested profiles include: Barian, Dragonmaid, Gusto, Zombie World, Odgoadic, Libromancer. Some of my prior requests was covered by participants in CDSS6 and even more were re-covered in CDSS7, so I highly suggest checking those out and subscribing to my channel for all of my latest profiles on YouTube!

Coming Soon:


Hello everybody! I serve as Number VIII of the Organization; however, my primary role on the site is to generate non-news content! Let's keep the endless flood of profiles on undervalued archetypes flowing, shall we?
