[Deck Profile] Gishkisworn

Sooo...

First we'll start with Gishkisworn.

3x Evigishki Gustkrake
3x Gishki Shadow
3x Vision Gishki
2x Lyla, Lightsworn Sorceress
2x Gishki Abyss
2x Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter
1x Wulf, Lightsworn Beast
1x Garoth, Lightsworn Warrior
1x Jain, Lightsworn Paladin
1x Ehren, Lightsworn Monk
1x Lumina, Lightsworn
1x Effect Veiler

Spells (13):

3x Salvage
3x Solar Recharge
1x Charge of the Light Brigade
1x Monster Reborn
1x Heavy Storm
1x Dark Hole



Trap (1):
1x Treacherous Trap Hole

Extradeck (15):
Nothing special, just standard stuff.


Wow. This is one hell of a deck. It's just crank. How by the force of Thundera are you intended to play Ritual Monster with freaking Lightsworns?

Well. The answer is the following. Read the damn cards. Either that or let me explain something.

Ok ok. Explain, because my brain hurts from all this reading.


But please don't fuck around when I write a wall of text (not that I want to).

There is a perfect circle in this deck containing:

  • Searching
  • Recycling the Searcher
  • Recycling the Recycling-Devices.



First part: Searching


We have two Main-Searcher and one Sub-Searcher.

Gishki Shadow searches your Ritual Spell cards by discarding him to the graveyard. He is also used as a whole tribute for the Ritual Summon of any Gishki Ritual Monster.

Yay. It would be cool if there would be a similar thing for Gishki Monster.


Well, that's the part where we all have to accept:
Loving Konami is no bad.


They seriously had the idea that we need one of this especial for Gishki Ritual Monster.

It's name is Vision Gishki, searches any Gishki Ritual Monster for us and can be used as a whole tribute for a Ritual Summon of any Gishki Ritual Monster.

I think you see where we are getting at.

Well. Searching is cool and stuff. But I have two questions:
1. What do I have to think of if we are speaking about a Sub-Searcher?
2. Are the monsters worth for being searched out at all?


You sir have good and stupid questions at the same time.

Lol. Asshole.

Gishki Shadow and Vision Gishki were both Main-Searcher. They both search out main pieces of a Ritual Summon. A Sub-Searcher in this deck searches out our Main-Searcher.


This is where Gishki Abyss comes into play (another pun intended). When he is summoned (Stratos like), I can search for any Gishki monster that has 1000 DEF or less (except for himself). This means he can search for Gishki Shadow, Vision Gishki and Evigishki Gustkrake.

Konami actually thinks when designing monster?

Strange, right?


Now we start talking about the second part: Recycling the Searcher

Before we talk about ye cool Ritual Monsters, let's talk about the best recycler any archetype or element could get:

Salvage gets me two Water monster from my grave with an ATK of 1500 or less. So it is a free +1 and the possibility of searching any Gishki card from your deck you want.

Furthermore you can use Gishki Ceremonial Mirror to recycle any Gishkia Ritual Monster to your hand from your graveyard by returning it to your deck. This works perfectly with Lightsworn together.

Holy crap fuck, I just shit my pants reading this.


Yay. You will even shit it further reading this.


Last part: Recycling the Recycling-Devices

Now we can talk about the Ritual monsters. There are two. One is the last part of the perfect circle. The other one is to disrupt the opponents play.

Let's first talk about the last part of the perfect circle. If you summon Evigishki Mind Augus you can return any 5 cards from any players grave to their decks. So you either return your cards like Salvage, Reborn, Heavy Storm, Dark Hole, Judgment Dragon and stuff or you disrupt your opponent by returning their Treeborn Frogs, last Light Monsters or Dandylions to their deck.

I...I can reuse Monster Reborn? Seriously??!

Yes you can. Now the second one. This will disrupt your opponents hand. Summoning Evigishki Gustkrake gives you the opportunity to look  at 2 cards in your opponents hand and return 1 of them to their deck. A starting hand containing 2 Gustkrake, 2 Shadow and 2 Salvage (however you get this by drawing searching or whatever) will leave your opponent with 0 cards in their hand.

WHAT??!!!


Now you've learned about Gishki. In this deck I use Lightsworn as an Engine, similar to Machinasworn. And even those parts can be recycled by using the Mind Augus Perfect Circle.

Okok, I think I got this. I now have to wash my pants. I have one last question:
When is this TCG legal?


Next year with Hidden Arsenal 6.

Steelswarm will be featured on Sunday.

  1. I think I would have liked to have seen Aqua Jet in there somewhere at 2. The deck looks great, but making those Ritual monsters really big beat sticks would be fun.

    Looking forward to the Steelswarm deck

  2. After a very long period of time testing this Deck, Sephiroth and me came to the conclusion, that this Deck has simply no space left for any Splash Cards. That's why we can not afford adding cards like Aqua Jet. In addition this Deck manages OTKs quite well even without the help of any ATK Pushers. Most of the time we finish a game with Judgment Dragon, 1-2 Rituals and 1 Random Normal Summon.
