This deck is primarily focused on the discard aspect of the game and tries to go the long game by winning with a flipped Nicol Bolas or Dream Eater/Doom Whisperer beats. It also has 3 copies of The Eldest Reborn to alternatively revive its lost threats or its opponents discarded threats to close out the game. There’s always a few variants of this deck recently that have posted some success online, some as simply UB decks without the red splash for everyone’s favorite dragon planeswalker.
With GP new Jersey only days away, it remains to be seen if this deck has the goods to put up results in a major event. It will probably not be a big percentage of the metagame, which may give it some small advantage: at the very least it should dodge Nullhide Ferox
Konami Digital Entertainment has shared information on the upcoming Savage Strike releases for its Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game, as well as revealing more details on Soul Fusion Special Edition.
Savage Strike will be the first booster of 2019, and it will power up Synchro Summoning strategies for duelists playing that type of deck. Synchro Summoning has already made an appearance in the latest Yu-Gi-Oh! anime VRAINS, and now the first Synchro Monsters will debut in this booster. Cards to power up Zombie Synchro and Neos Decks are also included.
The 100-card booster includes 48 Commons, 20 Rares, 14 Super Rares, 10 Ultra Rares, and 8 Secret Rares. Release is planned for February 1.
Savage Strike Special Edition will include 3 Savage Strike Booster Packs as well as 1 of 2 Super Rare variant cards, and 1 of 2 Super Rare preview cards of non-foil cards from an upcoming booster set. Release is set for March 8.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Soul Fusion Special Edition was announced this summer (see “Fusion Summoning Heats Up with New ‘Yu-Gi-Oh!’ Booster”), and as the December 7 release approaches, the company has announced the two Super Rare variant cards which will be in the package. Players will pull either Summon Sorceress or Isolde, Two Tales of the Noble Knights. The two Super Rare preview cards from the upcoming Savage Strike Booster Set will be Prank-Kids Rocksies and Neo Space Connector.
