Ritual Beasts are a combo-oriented deck focused on continuous searching and floating effects. The deck starts with getting Ritual Beast Tamers and Spiritual Beasts on the field together (often facilitated by Ritual Beast Tamer Elder) and contact fusing into Ritual Beast Ulti-Cannahawk to begin searching for additional monsters or recovery cards like Ritual Beast Ambush. The fusion monsters can then tag out into two new monsters, allowing Ritual Beasts to play freely through common disruptive traps like Floodgate Trap Hole and Paleozoic Canadia. The only limitation to the deck’s plays is that each monster can only be special summoned once, so the tag outs have to be planned carefully. Because the deck’s offensive ceiling caps out with Ritual Beast Ulti-Apelio’s 2600 ATK and targeting Spiritual Beast Pettlephin bounces, additional finishers like Destiny HERO - Plasma and Lava Golem are often used.
