[Deck Recipes] “Orcust” Analysis by Instructors

Even with key cards limited, the symphony of the abyss just plays on.

Instructors’ Speculation About Popular Decks: Orucst

<Reasons For Its Popularity>

■ It wasn’t affected by the July 2020 Limit Regulations. – それが俺のS.K

■ Because it can easily include “Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon” without much difficulty. Also, it can easily generate a powerful field with just one card, making it an incredibly stable Deck. Also, thanks to “Called by the Grave” and “Crossout Designator”, you can stop the activation of cards. The fact “Just One Forbidden Drop” can send cards to the GY, meaning it works well with Orcust. – R太郎

■ It’s ease of plays, and how sturdy it is going first. In addition, it also has the ability to easily bring things out and control things, while also controlling the state of its Field, GY and banished cards. – いやさか

■ Thanks to “Just One Forbidden Drop”, it’s not only powerful going first, it’s also strong going second. – てこて

Sample Deck Concept

With the effects of cards like “Girsu, the Orcust Mekk-Knight”, you can send “Orcust Harp Horror” and “Orcust Knightmare” to the GY, allowing you to activate their effects that banish them from the GY to let you gather the monsters on your field, which you can then use to lead into Link Summons.

With the first effect of “Orcustrated Babel”, you can activate these effects during your opponent’s turn, allowing you to activate the effects of your “Topologic” Link Monsters in order to disrupt your opponent’s moves.

Sample Deck Concept

This Deck’s most basic play is Link Summoning “Orcust Galatea”, then uses its second effect to Set “Orcustrated Babel” and “Orcust Crescendo” directly from the Deck, allowing you the capacity to suppress your opponent’s actions.

The effects of “Armageddon Knight” and “Mathematician” send “Orcust Harp Horror” from the Dek to the GY, whose own effect Special Summons an “Orcust” monster from the Deck, lending you the monsters needed to Link Summon.

Also, “Orcust Harp Horror” and “Orcust Cymbal Skeleton” and what not have effects that restrict you to only Special Summoning DARK monsters for the rest of the turn, but since “Predaplant Verte Anaconda” and “Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon” are DARK, there’s nothing in the way of your Special Summons.
