Orcust

Curious George (おさるのじょーじ) went 7-2 and finished 2nd in “8th DCS” which had 59 participants.

He ran 3 Performapal Pop-Up in the Main Deck.

Performapal Pop-Up is a new Spell from Duelist Pack: Legend Duelist 6 that allows him to send up to 3 cards from hand to the graveyard, and then draw the same number of cards.

Not only does this generate card advantage when Orcust monsters are sent to the graveyard, it also digs deeper into the deck and improves the opening setup.

 

Danger Dark World

Akkun (あっくん‏) went 6-1 and finished 1st in “2nd A-CS” which had 52 participants.

He ran 2 Dragged Down into the Grave in his Side Deck.

Dragged Down into the Grave allows him to look at his opponent’s hand and pick off troublesome ‘hand traps’ such as Droll & Lock Bird. Although the opponent would be able to do the same, there would only be Danger and Dark World monsters in hand as the Spells would have been set on field.

However, there is still a small chance that the opponent could draw a Droll & Lock Bird right off the second half of Dragged Down into the Grave effect and then activate it immediately in a new Chain.

 

Salamangreat

Yabu (やぶ) went 4-2-2 and finished 1st in “69th Adachi CS” (Team 3v3) which had 50 teams (150 participants).

His choice of ‘hand traps’ in the Side Deck is a good reflection of the more popular decks in the metagame.

Artifact Lancea is mainly against Orcust, while Droll & Lock Bird is mainly against Danger Dark World.

D.D. Crow has also been gaining popularity as a one-of as it could be used against a wide range of decks such as Orcust, Danger Dark World, Salamangreat.

 

Conclusion

The newly released Duelist Pack: Legend Duelist 6 has given Orcust a new card in Performapal Pop-Up, while SPYRAL has received Magicians’ Souls.

 

Magicians’ Souls could be Special Summoned from hand by sending SPYRAL Master Plan from deck to the graveyard. Its ② effect is also useful for sending SPYRAL MISSION Spell/Trap cards from hand to graveyard to draw new cards, and thus enabling the graveyard effects of the SPYRAL MISSION Spell/Trap cards.

Being a Level 1 monster, Magicians’ Souls works well with One for One and Where Arf Thou?, allowing the combo to flow together with the other Level 1 monsters SPYRAL Quik-Fix and SPYRAL GEAR – Drone.
