Deck Concept

Since it has multiple Level 8 monsters, you can make use of “Trade-In” to more aggressively gather vital cards from the Deck to your hand.

If your opponent controls a monster Special Summoned from the Extra Deck, you’ll be able to send “Beast King Barbaros” and “Shaddoll” monsters from the Deck to the GY to Fusion Summon “El Shaddoll Shekhinaga”, you’ll have gathered the necessary monsters needed to Special Summon “Beast Machine King Barbaros Ür”. Use a Link 2 monster to Link Summon “Linkross”, gathering the 3 monsters you need to Tribute Summon, allowing you to activate the 4th effect of “Beast King Barbaros”. Also, “El Shaddoll Apkallone” & “Fleur-De-Lis, the Knight of Dragma” et al, have effects that negate monster effects, that can be used even on your own monsters. For example, they can make a “Beast King Barbaros” that hasn’t been Tribute Summoned regain its 3000 ATK, while also allowing “Beast Machine King Barbaros Ür” to inflict battle damage to the opponent.

 

POINT: Level 8 Monsters

There are a total of 15 Level 8 monsters, of five different monsters. Besides the effect of “Shaddoll Fusion”, you can use the second effect of “Maximus Dragma to send monsters from the Extra Deck to the GY to let you Special Summon “Beast Machine King Barbaros Ür”.

Deck Concept

A “Phantasm Spiral” Deck fights with Normal Monsters, and has incredible synergy with the “Tenyi” monsters and their Support Cards who have effects related to non-Effect Monsters.

A “Phantasm Spiral” Token Special Summoned by the second effect of “Pacifis, the Phantasm City” can be Tributed to activate the first effect of “Dragon Cycle of Celestial Illusions”, allowing you to Special Summon “Phantasm Spiral Dragon” from your Deck, and lets you activate the second effect of “Pacifis, the Phantasm City” a second time. As well, “Fury of Kairyu-Shin” & “Torrential Tribute” have good synergy here, as since “Phantasm Spiral Dragon”, “Phantasm Spiral Token” and “Megalosmasher X” are all WATER, they can take advantage of the second effect of “Fury of Kairyu-Shin”, while the effect of “Torrential Tribute” destroys your opponent’s monsters. If “Fury of Kairyu-Shin” is not in the GY, use the second effect of “Sea Stealth Attack” to banish a WATER monster until the End Phase, OR use the second effect of “Tenyi Spirit – Shthana” to Special Summon one of those destroyed monster, depending on the situations. Since the Deck has so many Trap Cards, you’ll be able to activate the effect of “Reusable Jar”, allowing you add “Phantasm Spiral” Trap Cards (that you can activate from your hand if you have “Pacifis, the Phantasm City”) back to your hand.

POINT: Use Cards In The GY

Banish Trap Cards from the GY with “Reusable Jar” to add the Trap Card you need back to your hand.

“Phantasm Spiral” Trap Cards also have effects that can be activated by banishing them so keep that in mind.
