Deck Commentary

A “Constellar” Deck that uses “Gizmek Misaki, the Avian Apex Ascender” from “Chaos Impact”.

By using the 2nd effect of “Gizmek Misaki, the Avian Apex Ascender”, you can more easily Xyz Summon.

“Gizmek Misaki, the Avian Apex Ascender” can also be used as Xyz Material for “Constellar Pleiades” and “Cyber Dragon Nova”.

Also, “Cyber Dragon Nachster”, with its 3rd effect, can Special Summon “Constellar Zubeneschamali” from the GY, and then the effect of “Constellar Zubeneschamali” lets you add a “Constellar” monster from your Deck to your hand, while you aim to Link Summon “Cyber Dragon Sieger”.

[Key Point]

Behold the modern “Constellar” Deck!

[Explanation]

A “Constellar” Deck that’s changed due to the hidden possibilties offered by “Gizmek Misaki, the Avian Apex Ascender”.

After activating the effect of “Constellar Sheratan”, Tribute it to Special Summon “Gizmek Misaki, the Avian Apex Ascender”, use its second effect to Normal Summon “Constellar Pollux”, and while you cannot Special Summon anything other than Warriors, you can use the effect of “Constellar Pollux” to Normal Summon “Constellar Kaus”, then use the effect of “Constellar Kaus” to make both “Constellar” monsters Level 5 to then Xyz Summon the Warrior-Type “Constellar Pleiades”.

In advance, use “Photon Sanctuary” to Special Summon “Photon Tokens” to Link Summon “Hip Hoshiningen”, allowing you to Xyz Summon multiple Xyz Monsters.

However, during the turn you activate “Photon Sanctuary”, you cannot Summon monsters except LIGHT monsters, but this is not a problem as every monster in this Deck is a LIGHT monster.

“Message in a Bottle” lets you Special Summon 3 monsters with different Levels, however you cannot Special Summon any further, except by Xyz Summon, and if you’ve failed to Xyz Summon, during the End Phase, you lose 4000 LP, making this a very very High Risk, High Reward kind of card, so it’s suggested you Normal Summon a Level 5 monster via Tribute Summon to Xyz Summon “Constellar Pleiades”, then use its effect to return the remaining monster to the hand.

Since “Gizmek Misaki, the Avian Apex Ascender” and “Constellar Zubeneschamali” are both Level 5 LIGHT Machine monsters, you can use them with Cyber Dragon related cards, such as the above mentioned means of “Cyber Dragon Nachster” with its 3rd effect to Special Summon “Constellar Zubeneschamali” being particularly strong.

Note that you can discard “Constellar Zubeneschamali” with Nachster’s 2nd effect then Special Summon it with Nachster’s 3rd effect.

Until the end of the turn after its 3rd effect is activated, you cannot Special Summon monsters except Machine monsters, so it’s best to save activating this until you’re done Special Summoning everything else.

Deck Commentary

An Insect Deck that uses “Seraphim Papallion” from “Chaos Impact”.

The 3rd effect of “Seraphim Papallion” Special Summons “Fusion Parasite” from the GY.

With the second effect of “Fusion Parasite”, you use the monsters you control as materials to Fusion Summon.

You can Link Summon “Seraphim Papallion” with the effects of “Summoning Swarm” and “Battlewasps”.

Also, “Crusadia Krawler” is Special Summon to a Monster Zone as an Insect monster with its 1st effect, you can Link Summon during your opponent’s turn with “World Legacy Awakens” which was added by its 2nd effect, allowing you to not only Link Summon the likes of “Insect Shinobi Hagakuremino” and “Inzektor Picofalena”, but also aim to Link Summon “Seraphim Papallion” during your opponent’s turn.

[Key Point]

Being able to Fusion and Link Summon during your opponent’s turn is utterly fascinating.

[Explanation]

As above mentioned, this Deck’s concept is extremely charming as it’s built around being able to, during your opponent’s turn, Fusion Summon with “Fusion Parasite”, and Link Summon with “World Legacy Awakens” and “I:P Masquerena”.

First, you assemble Insect monsters using the effects of “Battlewasp” monsters and “Giant Ball Park” to help Link Summon.

The key card “Fusion Parasite” can be discarded to equip another Insect monster from your Deck with the first effect of “Inzektor Picofalena”, and then use that Insect monster and “Inzektor Picofalena” to Link Summon “Seraphim Papallion”, and then you’ll be Set up to Special Summon “Fusion Parasite” during the opponent’s turn.

Also, the Insect Normal Monsters Special Summoned with “Giant Ball Park” can be returned to the Deck with the 2nd effect of “Inzektor Picofalena”.

The effect of “Fusion Parasite” allows you to Fusion Summon “Invoked Raidjin”, “Invoked Magellanica” and “Millennium-Eyes Restrict”, so pick the one that is most useful depending on the situation.

Among them, “Millennium-Eyes Restrict” is a VERY strong monster that can activate its effect even during he opponent’s turn.

“Traptrix Mymerleo” and “Traptrix Rafflesia” let you use “Break Off Trap Hole” if you Link Summon during the opponent’s turn, so aim to have all of your monsters Linked while being able to destroy the opponent’s monsters.

I feel the tactics available to Insect Decks have broadened with the appearance of “Seraphim Papallion”.
