This is a pretty standard take on Sky Striker, so I do not believe that explaining the strategy is necessary. The differences in this list are that it focuses more on the Salamangreat matchup with d.d. crow at 2 (you can play it at 3) and shark cannon at 1 with one-sided (you can main deck it at 2 and then play 3 shared ride in the side deck for the mirror). The side deck is geared towards Thunder, but you can tailor it for other matchups as well. As Sky Striker stands, it really only has to worry about three matchups; Thunder Dragons, the mirror & Salamangreat.

However, I will provide this resource for players newly returning to the deck or just recently introduced(I find that the rhetoric discussed here is applicable to a wide variety of strategies but especially relevant with this deck.): https://ygoprodeck.com/advanced-sky-striker-strategies/

Card Breakdown:

  • Raye: Your Normal Summon -- her quick effect allows you to use to activate the effects of Area Zero & Multirole while maintaining advantage (Tribute after target).
  • Hornet Drones: A token to Summon your Striker Links & to help with OTKs
  • Area Zero: A field spell that can Special Summon Raye from your Deck or potentially add a Sky Striker card
  • Vector Blast: Can clear your opponent's Extra Monster Zone & sets up your GY
  • Engage: Pot of Greed
  • Shark Cannon: A pseudo-D.D. Crow
  • Afterburners: Monster Removal / Pseudo Back row Removal
  • Jamming Wave: Back row Removal / Pseudo Monster REmoval
  • Eagle Eye: Protection
  • Widow Anchor: Monster negate
  • Multirole: Next turn setup & protection
  • Hercules Base: Recursion

Yu-Gi-Oh Profile: I started playing Yu-Gi-Oh in 2007 and left after about 6 years of casual play. I came back towards the end of 2015 (around when Nekroz was being played), and continued for about a year or two as a pretty casual player (using cards like Hammon, rarely going for a SS, carelessly wasting advantage - the whole 9 yards). In 2016-2017, however, I decided to pick up a competitive deck online (Zoodiacs) and I failed horribly. My experience with zoo led me to a whole variety of decks including Draco, D/D/D and several Pendulum based strategies, and since then I've made it my mission to understand the meta as well as to learn how to play it/play against it. Now I play on Dueling Nexus with an occasional appearance on Dueling Book Rated, so if you'd like to duel or chat - shoot me a message on discord (Cryselle#6969). - My favorite deck: D/D/D (MR3) - What I'm currently playing: Cyber Dragons Alas the 2018 meta is disappearing

    I just want to know why Metalfoes Fusion is in the deck?

    Metalfoes Fusion is the target for Foolish Burial Goods.
    Once it hits the GY, it can shuffle itself back to draw a card.

    Metalfoues Fusion is a free draw 1 if popped off multi or dumped from goods; this deck is now illegal :/
