Top Player Council Thoughts

Thoughts on the new skill, Fusion Reserves - Roids?

Stevie says:

Another specific skill worse than Destiny Draw, move along.

look at god says:

They cool, but not competitive

superforms says:

Very limited search pool: UFOroid, Rescueroid, Ambulanceroid, Gyroid, Steamroid, Drillroid, and Submarineroid. The 1800 LP loss is slightly easier to achieve than Destiny Draw’s trigger, but this still seems like a much worse Destiny Draw.


Thoughts on Armoroid (SR)?

Stevie says:

Very powerful effect, but difficult summoning condition. Definitely the best monster the deck has.

look at god says:

Cool effect, difficult summoning condition

superforms says:

If you’re running an Armoroid deck, you probably have a ton of protection cards to keep your bad roid monsters alive for the tribute summon. Those all disappear when Armoroid comes out, and then Armoroid loses to a Beatdown Dyna. Very bad card.


Thoughts on Jetroid (SR)?

Stevie says:

combos with Wall of Disruption + Widespread Ruin. Monsters aren’t safer than setting backrow in this format so pretty useless.

look at god says:

Not enough good attack deceleration cards

superforms says:

Really interesting effect and bluffs traps even when you don’t have any. Having to be targeted for an attack first reduces the versatility significantly, but still a cool card. Doesn’t really have a place in a good deck though, so it’s unlikely to see any play competitively.


Farm Decks

Any variation of the “Ra Deck” may work but perhaps not as effectively. For example, Kiseitai + Massivemorph, Golden Ladybug etc.

Strategy

  • Get both Spirit Barrier and Astral Barrier on the field as soon as possible.
  • Summon Neo-Spacian Air Hummingbird and White Magician Pikeru to gain life points.
  • Dodge Syrus’ attacks with your “Barrier” combo.
  • Tip: To save time, quickly tap/un-tap “Auto Duel” during Syrus’ Battle Phase so you don’t have to activate Astral Barrier on each attack declaration.

Last Turn

Make sure you have three Monsters on the field before the last turn.

  1. Tribute summon The Winged Dragon of Ra using your three Monsters.
  2. Activate Ra’s effect when prompted to pay your life points to increase its attack and to obtain the “LP on Brink” bonus.
  3. Enter Battle Phase, activate Anti-Magic Arrows and attack the Attack postion Monster with the lowest ATK!

Replacements

  • Neo-Spacian Air Hummingbird and White Magician Pikeru can be replaced by Cure Mermaid.
  • Magic Planter can be replaced with any generic card that lets you draw.
  • A good option instead of Crystal Seer or Skelengel is Defense Draw, which is not prone to Syrus’ Shield Crush.

Risks

  • Not getting the “Barrier” combo out quick enough is deadly.
  • If you’re not careful with how you use your draw power, you won’t have 3 monsters on the field by the last turn and won’t be able to Tribute Summon The Winged Dragon of Ra.

Strategy

  • Activate Restart if you don’t have a way to Summon Blue-Eyes White Dragon or search for it.
  • Only attack Defense position Monsters so you don’t lose the “Effect Only Damage” bonus.
  • Thin your Deck with Blue Dragon Summoner and Crystal Seer + Wonder Wand.

Last Turn

You should have two Blue-Eyes White Dragon on the field.

  1. Summon Gravekeeper’s Vassal.
  2. Target Vassal with two Union Attack and Secret Pass to the Treasures.
  3. Enter Battle Phase, activate Anti-Magic Arrows and attack directly for victory!

Replacements

  • Crystal Seer can be replaced by other draw cards (filter by “Drawing” in the Card Editor), for example, Dark Mimic LV1, Dark Mimic LV3, Dekoichi the Battlechanted Locomotive, Jar of Greed, Shard of Greed, Legacy of Yata-Garasu etc.
