Deck Summary

Trouble Cards:

  • Cyber Angel Dakini - Hits over Dark Paladin in DEF position.
  • Cyber Angel Idaten - boosts Cyber Angel Benten over 2400 ATK. 
  • Spell Shield Type-8 - Will counter one of the Final Turn Combo pieces.
  • Cyber Gymnast - Can destroy any of your ATK position monsters. 
  • Big Bang Shot(BBS) - Allows Cyber Prima to hit over DEF position Dark Paladin

 

Strategy:

Summon a Dark Paladin in DEF position ASAP and prepare discards to counter Alexis' three Ritual Spell cards and BBS. Cyber Gymnast will destroy any ATK position monsters, while Dakini, Idaten-boosted Benten, or Cyber Prima + BBS will overpower DEF position Dark Paladin

Only summon your second Dark Paladin if Alexis has used all three of her Ritual Spells and BBS. This is to ensure that you have enough cards to throw away to negate them. 

A Trick up the Sleeve ensures a Dark Magician in our starting hand. The rest of the deck has been built to maximize the chances of starting with Polymerization or Buster Blader/Fusion substitute. 

IMPORTANT: Spell Shield Type-8 will negate one of the Final Turn Combo pieces. Before activating them, this Trap must be baited with either Fusion SageEmblem of the Dragon Destroyer, or another Polymerization before you have summoned your second Dark Paladin. Spell Shield Type-8 is the only backrow card that Alexis will set, so you will know for sure if it's ready and waiting. 

 

Final Turn Combo

  1. With both Dark Paladins already on the field, summon Gravekeeper's Vassal.
  2. Pop Secret Pass to the Treasures and both Union Attacks on it.
  3. Attack directly. 

 

Core Cards
Card Explanation
King of the Swamp The crux of any Fusion-based deck. Functions as both a Fusion substitute and a Polymerization searcher. 3 copies is asking a lot, but the more the merrier.
Replacement/Tech Cards
Card Explanation
Buster Blader, the Dragon Destroyer Swordsman If lacking 2 DPal copies, this UR from the same box can be used. Swap one of the fusion substitutes for any Dragon-Type monster.
Another 2nd DPal alternative. Summon at the start of your final turn.
If short on King of the Swamp or Fusion Sage copies, this card helps reroll for the right pieces.
Needs a discard to search Polymerization, but recycles Fusion materials to ensure you have discards for DPal's effect.
