Deck Summary

With each update came more and more support for the Red-Eyes Archetype. Those that faithfully farmed Super Joey have been rewarded with Crimson Kingdom and all the goodies it came with. 

Red-Eyes Wyvern and Zombie dragon are welcome additions to the lineup, pushing cards like Red-Eyes Spirit from gimmicky to top tier. While REZD itself seems fairly gimmicky, it just so happens that Gozuki is an appropriate Zombie who also contributes the the Red-Eyes engine in his own way.

The engine functions by first sending Red-Eyes cards to the Graveyard, then reviving them through any number of ways, allowing for easy summoning of 2400 ATK beaters. The kicker is that even if your opponent manages to muster enough resources to take down such powerful monsters, you can revive at the drop of a pin.

The ignition can be seen as Red-Eyes Insight, preparing a Red-Eyes in the Graveyard and adding Spirit to your hand in one seamless move. Gozuki also provides some fuel by prepping a REZD in the Graveyard. 

Once prepped, we're able to summon as follows

  • If Gozuki sent to the Graveyard, banish a dead REZD to summon a REZD from your hand
  • Banish Wyvern from the Graveyard to revive a REZD, or another Wyvern
  • Via Red-Eyes Spirit; no cost, no strings attached. Revive any Red-Eyes from the Graveyard
