Overall strategy - Combo into a Crusadia OTK or massive board, or use Strikers for other useful effects such as ATK/DEF reduction
Potential combos:
1 - Sky Strikers going first
This is a less ideal start but it gives you something to work with and is more ideal for if your opponent forces you to go first (such as missing a coin toss etc.)
This strategy only focuses on getting the Sky Striker link monsters out first turn and using their effects to stall (Shizuku being the ending board state to soften damage next turn); with this strategy, you'll want to use up as many of your spells as possible whilst saving their benefits for your second turn (e.g. using engage to set up a Striker board and hopefully draw into Crusadias or Kaijus for later)
Hopefully this way you can potentially survive to perform the Crusadia OTK on your second turn
2 - Crusadia OTK going second
This is probably the most self explanatory strategy as it is the namesake for Crusadia OTK and the combo you'll most likely be fishing for each game.
  • From a starting hand of two Crusadias (with one preferably being Draco), normal summon one and link summon to Magius
  • Drop the second Crusadia under Magius with it's effect and trigger Magius' effect to grab a Crusadia monster from deck (usually Maximus if you haven't got him yet)
  • Optionally, if the special summoned Crusadia monster was Draco, grab the monster used to make Magius out of the GY and back to hand
  • Use Magius and the second monster to make Regulex, special summon a Crusadia (preferably not Maximus, can be the monster grabbed by Draco as it was only normal summoned before)
  • Using Regulex's effect, grab a Crusadia spell or trap from deck; Crusadia Revival is a good option as it opens up multiple attacks and boost by 500 atk
  • Make Equimax using Regulex and the other monster, point his upward arrow to an opposing monster if possible
  • Optionally, if Maximus wasn't special summoned this turn off of his effect, summon him so that Equimax points to him and activate his effect to double Equimax's battle damage; you can also activate Revival at this time to boost atk to hit over 8000 battle damage if you're going to fall short
3 - Sky Striker Crusadia Combos
Here's where the two archetypes have a crossover point; if performed correctly, this combo can give extra options to the OTK strategy that can lead to other win conditions
Important note: It is highly recommended that this combo starts with Strikers only, due to their no main monster zone requirement (there is a variant that goes into Crusadia first, I'll get to that)
3a - Striker into Equimax
  • Start with Crusadia monster and either Hornet Drones or Raye (Hornet is a special summon start where as Raye will use up your normal summon if not off of the effect of Area Zero so be careful)
  • Activate Drones for a token or just normal summon Raye
  • Link into Kagari (if drones is in graveyard, can be achieved with Foolish Burial Goods if starting with Raye) or Kaina (if only Raye)
  • Activate effect (Kagari - Grab Drones back, Kaina - Prevent an opposing monster from atacking till your opponent's next end phase, just as a safety blanket)
  • If Kagari is used, link into either Hayate or Kaina (activate Kaina effect optionally)
  • Summon Crusadia to link arrow, Hayate/Kaina + Crusadia monster into Regulex
This can be useful if your opponent is attempting to stop your Crusadia combo, baiting out negates on Strikers before using them as materials instead (in the case of a negate + destroy where you have two Crusadias in hand, you end up baiting it out and freeing the extra zone for Magius if they don't see through your bluff)
3b - Borrelsword Dragon
Surprisingly, this combo can also easily make Borrelsword with only one Crusadia and Drones
  • Normal summon Crusadia, into Magius
  • Activate Drones, summon token (this won't activate Magius as it is a normal monster)
  • Summon Kagari under Magius, grab Drones back as well as a Crusadia from deck as Magius triggers
  • Summon Regulex using Magius and Kagari
  • Summon a token off of Drones once again, make sure this is not under Regulex
  • Summon the second Crusadia in your hand (from Magius) under Regulex (optionally, grab a Crusadia spell/trap from deck and, if the monster summoned was Draco, grab back the normal summoned Crusadia from earlier)
  • Make the Striker token into Hayate, Shizuku or Kaina (latter two for their effects)
  • Use all of those materials to make Borrelsword dragon
From there you can use the Crusadia in hand as well as cards like Area Zero (if destroyed) to summon even more materials to make things like Knightmare Cerberus/Phoenix or other Crusadia/Striker monsters
There may be other combo's I have missed so this deck is up for experimentation.
