High Quality Decks

So I put in all of my effort to make this build including a side deck and everything and this is my most detailed guide yet. I’m hoping that everyone likes this deck, before anything I just want to say thanks to all of those players who tolerated my 14 handtraps that I play when they were going against this deck during my test runs. Without further ado, let’s get into it!


First I’ll explain what Crusadia is before anything else. Crusadia is an archetype from the world legacy lore that utallizes link monsters to link climb. All Crusadia main deck monsters can special summon themselves to the field for a spot a link monster points to and are either level 3 or level 4, they also have additional effects including layering protection, clearance, boosting, and so on. The Crusadia monsters in the extra deck share an effect where they gain attack points equal to the origenal attack points of the monsters they point to. Most of them also trigger an effect when an effect monster is special summoned to a zone they point to. The idea is to link climb to the link monster Cursadia Equimax as soon as possible and boost it with the cursadia effects of the main deck. Crusadia Equimax is a 2000 attack point monster who gains the attack points of monsters it points to, but it prevents those monsters from attacking. It also sports the ability to tribute a crusadia or world legacy monster it points to and then negate the effects of a monster on the field giving us standard contol.


I’ll start the list now


1 Psy-Frame Driver (used for gamma)

1 Dinowrestler Pankratops (removal)

2 Skull Meister (very good in the current meta)

3 Crusadia Maximus (double damage)

3 Crusadia Draco (recycle forr good extension)

2 Crusadia Leonis (piercing damage)

3 Crusadia Arorbia (protection plus tuner)

1 Cursadia Reculsia (only there for the name, but the pop does come up occasionally)

3 Ash Blossem and Joyous Spring (you know why)

3 Ghost Belle and Haunted Mansion (anti grave)

3 Psy-Framegear Gamma (monster negate


1 Crusadia Revival (multi attack for game)

3 Triple Tactics Talent (draw power, lets you bounce back into the game)

1 Upstart Goblin (draw)

3 World Legacy Sucession (extender)

3 Crusadia Testament (draw or protection)


1 Crusadia Vanguard (protect the small guys)

3 Infinite Imperitence (negate effects)


1 Psy-Framelord Omega (in case of gamma getting used on your turn)


1 Abyss Dweller (grave lock)

1 The Phantom Knights of Break Sword (pop)


1 Accesscode Talker (triple pop plus 5000 beater)

1 Knightmare Unicorn (removal)

2 Crusadia Equimax (main boss)

1 Knightmare Phenix (backrow removal)

1 Crystron Halqifibrax (extender)

2 Crusadia Regulex (to get testament or revival if going for OTK)

1 Crusadia Spatha (extender)

3 Crusadia Magius (main starter/extender, very useful)


3 The Winged Dragon of Ra - Sphere Mode (in case of removal decks)

3 Artifact Lancia (anti eldlich)

3 Ally of Justice Cycle reader (anti drytron)


3 Lightning Storm (set five pass, board go boom)

2 Twin Twisters (in case of trappy decks)


1 Red Reboot (very helpful)


The main thing to do is link climb to accessscode or equimax and then let it carry you. 


Acesscode combo: 2 Crusades with different names


Normal first Crusadia (this one can’t be draco)


Link Crusadia to Magius


Special second crusadia (if draco recycle the first one with it’s effect)


Magius adds draco (or another crusadia with a different name if the second Crusadia is draco) from your deck to your hand


Link second Crusadia with Magius to make regulex


Third crusadia summons self (if draco then return the first crusadia to your hand)


Regulex search a card (your pick depending on situation)


Link Regulex and third Crusadia for equimax


First Crusadia summons itself


Link Equimax with first Crusadia to make accesscode


You now have a 5300 triple pop monster who’s immune to effects


Equimax otk combo: Maxumis or Leonis and a Draco along with a third Crusadia that’s not a Draco


Summon Maxumis/Leonis


Link Maximus/Leonis for Mangius


Summon Draco to Mangius, then recycle Maxumis/Leonis and add the other one from your deck  to your hand, if the other one is already in your hand then get Arorbia


Mangius link with Draco to make Regulex


Summon third crusadia to Regulex’s zone


Regulex search Revival


Link the third Crusadia with regulex to make Equimax


Activate Revival


Summon Maximus and Leonis to Equimax’s zones (this’ll make Equimax total at 5300)


Use Maximus, Leonis, and Revival’s effects and target Equimax, now it does double damage, piercing damage, and can attack all monsters your opponent controls. 


Side tips:


1 You can use Spatha to move a Crusadia and get a second one that’ll allow you to overlay

2 As long as you have two Crusadias in your hand you didn’t brick

3 Only summon knightmare phoenix when you know there will still be a main monster zone on your side with an arrow or else it’ll end your turn

4 Halq can help bring out 3 crusadias, arabia and the two empty zones it points to

5 Pankratops can be used to make links if necessary, don’t be scared to use it for that

6 You can use Arorbia to save Reculsa or a Phantom Knight of Break Sword target


Other options:

Kaijus can out things and then place themselves into Equimax’s zone

You can play more world legacy cards if you want

My handtrap ratios are just me, you can use yours

Overall this is a pretty consistent deck that provides a great amount of interruptions and multiple layers of protection and then can suddenly otk with the use of Equimax. This is one of my favorite decks in the game currently and I worked very hard on this deck.

    Nice, but I will say that you might want to either run kaijus or dragons
    kaijus help you with boosting your monsters with where your links point to on your opponent’s field as well as being an out to some problem cards you might otherwise have trouble getting over.
    Dragons would help if you needed a turn one option that allows you some very explosive plays

    I would also recommend world crown and lib for some further extension and link climbing seeing as then you can search succession.

    Thanks for the suggestions!
    Kaijus are definitely an option and dragon is too but I tried to keep this pure.
    I totally overlooked crown and lib though and yes, those are cards you’d probably want to play, if you want it you can replace the ghost Belles for crown and a regulex for lib
