  5. Activate the effect of Yazi, Evil of the Yang Zing, destroy itself and an opponent’s card.
  6. When Yazi, Evil of the Yang Zing is destroyed, trigger its effect to Special Summon Mare Mare from Deck.
  7. Activate the effect of Mare Mare 3 times, reduce its Level by 3, and Special Summon 3 “Mini Mare Mare Token”.


  1. Using Mare Mare + “Mini Mare Mare Token”, Synchro Summon Denglong, First of the Yang Zing.
  2. When Denglong, First of the Yang Zing is successfully summoned, trigger its effect to add Zefraniu, Secret of the Yang Zing from Deck to Hand.
  3. Using Denglong, First of the Yang Zing + “Mini Mare Mare Token”, Link Summon Crystron Needlefiber in the Left Extra Monster Zone.
  4. When Crystron Needlefiber is successfully summoned, trigger the effects of Crystron Needlefiber and Denglong, First of the Yang Zing, forming a Chain.
    Chain 2: Resolve Crystron Needlefiber‘s effect, Special Summon Jiaotu, Darkness of the Yang Zing from the Deck.

  2. Play Zefraath in the Pendulum Zone.
  3. Activate the Pendulum Effect of Zefraath, add Zefraxi, Treasure of the Yang Zing from Deck to Extra Deck face-up, and change Zefraath‘s Pendulum Scale to 1.

  1. Activate Zefra War, destroy Zefraniu, Secret of the Yang Zing in the Pendulum Zone and an opponent’s card.

This is a 2-card combo that clears out 6 of the opponent’s cards:

  • Yazi, Evil of the Yang Zing destroys 1 card.
  • 2 Baxia, Brightness of the Yang Zing to to shuffle 2 cards each for a total of 4 cards.
  • Zefra War to destroy 1 card.

If Jiaotu, Darkness of the Yang Zing was sided out, and PSY-Framegear Gamma was played instead, the combo can still be executed, but each Baxia, Brightness of the Yang Zing would only shuffle 1 card each.

Attacking with LANpholinkus, 2 Baxia, Brightness of the Yang Zing and twice with Hi-Speedroid Chanbara would do a total damage of:
1200 + 2300 + 2300 + (2000 + 200) + (2200 + 200) = 10400.


Conclusion

The combo revolves around Synchro Summoning Yazi, Evil of the Yang Zing, and then destroying itself to Special Summon Mare Mare.

Other than using Armageddon Knight, Yazi can also be summoned with any non-Tuner that can be Normal Summoned and Destrudo the Lost Dragon’s Frisson. Destrudo the Lost Dragon’s Frisson can be sent to the graveyard by Dragon Shrine and Foolish Burial. Thus, making this combo very easily accessible.

Step 1 to 14 is the bread and butter of the combo, and that is a 1-card or 2-card combo to remove 2 to 3 threats from the opponent’s board while building up your own.

Step 15 and onward is flexible and should be played accordingly based on your hand and the opponent’s threats/disruptions.

    There’s a small mistake at step 17: It says Zefraaths Pendulum Scale becomes 7, when it’s actually 1.
    Really cool combo though, thank you for putting this up.

    since Denglong has been banned at TCG 2018.2 , is there any other card to replace his position in the first combo?
