Sky Striker

Miikun (みゐくん) went 7-0-1 (including 2 byes) and finished 1st in “85th Aichi CS in NextPro Osu Shop with Hatti CS” (3v3 Team).

He ran a copy of World Dino Wrestling in his Side Deck, allowing Foolish Burial Goods to indirectly Special Summon Dinowrestler Pankratops from the deck.

Foolish Burial Goods will send World Dino Wrestling from the deck to the graveyard, and then World Dino Wrestling can be banished from the graveyard to Special Summon Dinowrestler Pankratops from the deck.

Other than increasing the odds of opening with Dinowrestler Pankratops, this also provides Sky Striker with a little bit of burst potential as 2 Pankratops could be Special Summoned in the same turn, one by Pankratops’ own effect and the other by World Dino Wrestling‘s effect.



Peroyon (ペロヨン) finished 1st in “Tetsu CS Light 2018” which had 64 participants.

There is a resurgence of PSY-Framegear Gamma being played in the Side Deck as a straight-up solution to stopping the Gouki combo.



The competitive scene continues to diversify causing Sky Striker, Gouki, Trickstar, Altergeist to take a smaller share of the metagame.

Zefra has been doing decent in the past weeks. They are using the same Darkwurm combo, but instead of ending with Baxia, Brightness of the Yang Zing, they could Synchro Summon Borreload Savage Dragon instead. Borreload Savage Dragon would provide another disruption in the form of a negation.

Subterror has also been getting some results with new cards from Savage Strike. Not only are they able to run Pot of Extravagance for card draw, Subterror Succession has improved the consistency of the deck. Subterror Guru and Subterror Succession are able to add each other from deck to hand, making it easier to start the flow of the deck. As Subterror Guru is EARTH, this also allows Subterror Succession to add Maxx “C” to hand.

The interesting deck of this week is Prankids making Top 4 in “Tetsu CS Light 2018”.

    Thanks for the reports!

    Why isn’t Neo Space Connector seeing more play in Goukis? I know it sees play, but I thought it would be a staple for the Deck.

    • Akira says:

      Neo Space Connector needs to be Normal Summoned, so it competes with Mathematician over the once-per-turn Normal Summon.

      Opening with Mathematician is a much safer play as it is a Level 3, so even if its effect is negated, you can still follow up with Gilasaurus, Psychic Wheelder or Emergency Teleport to go into M-X-Saber Invoker.

  2. Michael Aninang says:

    Why is Infinite Impermanence back to 3 in Sky Strikers?

  3. Hodenhammer says:

    Would you maybe feature the decks you mention/describe? Ik I can look it up, but it’s kind of annoying to go through each link to find them. I think people would like it if you did feature zefra and subterror for example.

  4. Hero says:

    Hi,can you do a pendulum (pref. Zefra/Variant) combo again? I saw one you made but it is impossible now bc summon sorc is banned now 🙁
