Recently, I attended the Las Vegas regional in hopes to earn an invite. It was my first regional of the new season and it turned out to be a great success! With 2 losses throughout the day, I ended up placing 12th in the 245 player regional. It was a total of 8 rounds of swiss. I played what many players would think is the best deck of the format: Sky Striker Orcust. I was originally going to play Pendulum or Mekk-Knight, but I opted for a deck that can perform well going first or second.

These days, it isn’t enough to destroy Spells and Traps and send them to the GY. For example, Orcustrated Babel can add itself back to the hand from the GY. Salamangreat Balelynx can protect Will of the Salamangreat from Twin Twisters or Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit. However, Cosmic Cyclone banishes these cards with a simple cost of 1000 LP. Since its release in late 2016, this amplified Mystical Space Typhoon has been seeing use through various formats.

The July 2019 banlist hit a multitude of cards, shifting the game to a healthier state. Some notable hits included the limitations of the chaos dragons and Sky Striker Mecha Modules – Multirole. The Phantom Knights of Rusty Bardiche, however, received the banhammer. What did banning Rusty really do for Orcust decks? The deck is still topping events consistently, with the only real losers from the banlist were the few loyal Phantom Knight players. We’ll go over the main reasons why Orcust has continued to be a top contender for the late 2019 season.

One of the few chase cards in Rising Rampage is the new Link 4 Apollousa, Bow of the Goddess. She is also one of the four cards in the set to have two rarities, with a foil boost to her already elusive secret rarity.

The Phantom Knights of Rusty Bardiche first appeared in the Legendary Hero Decks as a TCG exclusive. The Phantom Knights (PKs) are very popular, and PK Rusty did not disappoint its fans. At first glance, Rusty screamed card advantage and has been responsible for many of the powerful boards that any dark deck can dish out today.

Ever since the release of Pendulum Evolution in 2017, Pendulum Magicians have constantly evolved to adapt to the meta. The archetype had a slow start; Zoodiacs rampaged the meta and Magicians barely saw play. However, when Jeff Jones took a UDS after the next banlist, its popularity jumped and has seen play since.
