“The Suppression Pluto” Deck Featuring “Gold Moon Coin” Deck Commentary

A “The Suppression Pluto” Deck that uses “Gold Moon Coin” that fist appeared in “Collection Pack: Duelist of Revolution”.

You can activate the effect of “The Suppression Pluto” by declaring names of cards added to your opponent’s hand from your hand by the effect of “Gold Moon Coin”.

Aim to bring out “The Suppression Pluto” by using “Doomdog Octhros” and “Dark Occultism” to add it from your Dek to your hand, while using “Call of the Archfiend” to Special Summon it from the GY.

You’ll be able to destroy the cards in your opponent’s hand with the effects of “Deck Devastation Virus” and “Eradicator Epidemic Virus”.

– Knight of Hanoi

[Key Points]

With regards to your cards that you hand to the opponent with “Gold Moon Coin”, don’t hand them cards that can be used in any Deck, instead hand them over cards that are specific in use that they won’t have a means of benefiting from.

The Deck’s concept is fairly unique, as you fight primarily with “The Suppression Pluto”, who lets you snoop out what cards will be likely played to your opponent’s field, while also letting you quickly change the flow of battle by taking your opponent’s central Spell & Traps and the monsters they use to fight.

[Advice]

The Deck centers around “The Suppression Pluto”, who would usually require to be Tribute Summoned, but keep in mind it can only really be Special Summoned with “Archfiend Empress”, “Masterking Archfiend” or “Call of the Archfiend”.

(It can also be Summoned by “Dark Spirit of the Stricken” and “Dark Spirit of the Spiteful”, but its effect will be negated.)

To add additional means of Summoning, it’s worth considering adding general-ish use cards, such as “World Legacy Succession”.

You can use monsters that can be Normal Summoned (that have 1000 or less ATK), such as “Doomdog Octhros” as material for “Salamangreat Almiraj”, who you can Link Summon to fulfill the activation conditions for “World Legacy Succession”.

To follow up with this, you can send “The Suppression Pluto” to the GY with “Dark Occultism” and “Trade-In” for the cost of activating them, or you can use “Convulsion of Nature” and “Archfiend’s Oath” in tandem to send it from the Deck to the GY.

And the “The Suppression Pluto” on the field would be destroyed by an effect, you can defend it with the effect of “Salamangreat Almiraj”.

2 Qliphort Genius
1 Dingirsu, the Orcust of the Evening Star

“Gimmick Puppet” Deck Featuring “Earthbound Overwalker” Deck Commentary

A “Gimmick Puppet” Deck that uses “Earthbound Overwalker” from “Duelist Pack: Legend Duelist 5″/.

First, you Tribute Summon “Earthbound Overwalker” using “Gimmick Puppet” monsters Special Summoned by the effect of cards like “Puppet Parade”.

And, by using “Advance Force” and “Card Advance”, you can aim to Tribute Summon the monster added to your hand using the 2nd effect of “Earthbound Overwalker”, giving you a high ATK monster that can intensely attack.

“Number C88: Gimmick Puppet Disaster Leo” has an effect to deal damage to the opponent, and it’s quite strong since you can activate it after activating the 3rd effect of “Earthbound Overwalker” that makes your opponent’s LP 3000.

[Key Points]

Normal Summon “Earthbound Overwalker” and “Earthbound Immortal” monsters to make your opponent’s LP 3000, then use “Earthbound Overwalker” with 2 “Gimmick Puppet” monsters to Xyz Summon “Number 88: Gimmick Puppet of Leo”, and then Special Summon the “Number 88: Gimmick Puppet of Leo”, that you used as Link Material, with “Junk Puppet”, and then follow up with “Rank-Up-Magic Argent Chaos Force” to Xyz Summon “Number C88: Gimmick Puppet Disaster Leo”, setting you up for a Special Win in a rather refreshing Combo. And while this combo might require quite a number of cards, you just need 1 “Puppet Parade” to assemble a large number of those cards.

[Advice]

“Puppet Parade” sets up the “Gimmick Puppet” monsters you need for Tribute and Xyz Summons, as well as grabbing “Rank-Up-Magic Argent Chaos Force”, while you can bring out “Earthbound Overwalker” with cards like “Card Advance” (but you still need to add it to your hand)

To arrange these cards, it might be necessary to include something like “Allure of Darkness”.

DARK Monsters have a tendency to prefer being banished, while the ideal here would be if there’s 2 copies of “Earthbound Overwalker” in your hand. And as a suggestion, when rearranging the Deck with “Card Advance”, it has the advantage of letting you set up the cards you want to draw into.

Also, it should be noted you can add “Earthbound Overwalker” with “Dark Occultism”.

1 Underclock Taker

1 Borrelsword Dragon

“Burning Abyss” Deck Featuring “Number 26: Spaceway Octobypass” Commentary

A “Burning Abyss” Deck that uses “Number 26: Spaceway Octobypass” from “Collection Pack: Duelist of Revolution”.

First, you Link Summon “Cherubini, Ebon Angel of the Burning Abyss” using “Burning Abyss” monsters, and then Xyz Summon “Number 26: Spaceway Octobypass”.

The 1st effect of “Cherubini, Ebon Angel of the Burning Abyss” protects “Burning Abyss” monsters or “Giant Kozaky” in a zone it points from being destroyed, and from there, those monsters can be allowed to attack directly with the 1st effect of “Number 26: Spaceway Octobypass”, and after you attack directly, its second effect changes control of those monsters to the opponent, destroying them. Your monsters will remain protected against your opponent, while being able to quickly wipe out your opponent’s LP.

– Knight of Hanoi

[Key Points]

While the idea of using “Giant Kozaky” is itself shocking, adding “Giant Kozaky” to the “Burning Abyss” theme is completely mindblowing.

“Giant Kozaky”, which is a, if not the, key card for the Deck, can be Special Summoned from the Deck using “Transmodify” with a “Burning Abyss” monster as the cost, allowing you to immediately activate their effect. Also, the Special Summon effects of “Burning Abyss” monsters in the hand ensure that you won’t have to sacrifice the Normal Summon of “Giant Kozaky”.

If you Link Summon “Cherubini, Ebon Angel of the Burning Abyss”, you can send “Graf, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss” and “Cir, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss” to the GY from the Deck to activate their effects and thus further Special Summon more “Burning Abyss” monsters, allowing you to set up for the Xyz Summon of “Number 26: Spaceway Octobypass”.

After assembling your combo, support your strategy using the powerful “Burning Abyss” monsters, but over all, this whole set up seems very complete feeling.

[Advice]

Since you can only use the Special Summon effect of each “Burning Abyss” monster once each, for the sake of your combo, it’s most optimal to have multiple different “Burning Abyss” monsters.

This recipe specifically recommends 10 different “B urning Abyss” monsters, so it looks like the risk of having the same “Burning Abyss” monsters in your hand is fairly low.

Also, target your opponent’s Spell & Trap Cards with “Calcab, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss”, but outside of that it’s worth considering “Harpie’s Feather Duster” and “Twin Twisters” as forms of removal, and in case your opponent tries to destroy your cards, use “Dark Sacrifice” which you can use to send “Scarm, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss”.

Also, for troublesome monsters, you can banish them until the End Phase with the effect of “Farfa, Malebranche of the Burning Abyss”, allowing you to deal with a blind spot most don’t consider a blind spot.

Since this is such a wonderful and well put together Deck so far, there’s not much advice to give this time around.

“Simorgh” Deck Featuring “Earthbound Overwalker” Deck Commentary

A “Simorgh” Deck that makes use of “Earthbound Overwalker” from “Duelist Pack: Legend Duelist 5”.

By using the effects of cards like “Elborz, the Sacred Lands of Simorgh”, you’ll be able to Tribute Summon Winged Beast “Earthbound Immortal” monsters.

Also, with “Windwitch” monsters, you’ll be able to assemble the Synchro monsters on the field and in the GY to Special Summon “Earthbound Overwalker” with its first effect.

– Knight of Hanoi

[Key Points]

A rather fascinating Deck that makes use of the various “Simorgh” cards in order to Summon “Earthbound Immortal Wiraqocha Rasca” and “Earthbound Immortal Aslla Piscu”.

Keep in mind after activating the effect of “Windwitch – Glass Bell”, you cannot Special Summon non-WIND monsters, meaning you can’t Special Summon “Earthbound Overwalker” (i.e. a DARK monster) during the same turn, but you can protect yourself by using “Windwitch – Snow Bell” as material for “Crystal Wing Synchro Dragon” and “Icarus Attack”.

Then during the next turn, you can Special Summon “Earthbound Overwalker” and set up to Summon “Earthbound Immortal” monsters.

[Advice]

Keep in mind the following points:
• You cannot Tribute the monster Special Summoned from the Deck by the effect of “Windwitch – Ice Bell”
• You cannot Special Summon non-Winged Beast monsters after using the 2nd effect of “Simorgh, Bird of Bringing”.

Also, the current recipe has no WIND Winged Beast to reveal for the 2nd effect of “Elborz, the Sacred Lands of Simorgh”, so to use this ability, as well as manage to use the effects of “Simorgh, Bird of Bringing” and “Simorgh, Bird of Beginning”, it might be worth considering at least a single copy of “Simorgh, Lord of the Storm”.

The 2nd effect of “Elborz, the Sacred Lands of Simorgh”, if you reveal a Level 5 or higher WIND Winged Beast to your opponent. will let you Normal Summon “Earthbound Immortal Wiraqocha Rasca” and “Earthbound Immortal Aslla Piscu” for one less Tribute, as they’re both Winged Beast monsters.
