update 26/06/2017

  • Spirit monsters will usually return to your hand during the End Phase.

  • You render yourself vulnerable for a direct attack without key spirit cards that allow spirit monsters to retain on the field.

How to use this deck

When to use which spirit

All the spirits have different uses, and it's important to know when to use which.

Shinobird Crane

Crane is probably the monster that you will usually try to start out.

Susa Soldier

If you opponent starts out by summoning a high attack monster before you get your power spot, you can use Susa soldier to destroy them.

Asura Priest

This card can be really good when your opponent starts summoning a lot of monsters and you have a power spot. With 2300 attack


Returning of monsters

The main weakness of spirit monster playstyle is its effect of returning back to your hand. You can use The Golden Apples to cover its weakness. It can be hoever quite obvious when you have a set spell/trap card and no monsters on the field, and Sergeant Electro are not that rare in PvP.

Spell Removal

Since this deck is lacking any spell removal, it's recommended to put in at least 1 twister. This will allow you to handle cards like Wonder Balloons, Pumprincess the Princess of Ghosts, Harpies' Hunting Ground and Mask of the Accursed, which are all somewhat commonly used.

Other useful cards

Shinobird Crow
Shinobird Crow
A spirit monster that you can use if you are lacking some of the other monsters. It can work as a suprise by using Susa Soldier and making its attack to 2000.
Mystic Box
Mystic Box
This card can be useful for destroying a monster that you can't handle, it also removes the downside of mystic box since spirit monsters return back to your hand.
Makiu, the Magical Mist
Makiu, the Magical Mist
Since susa soldier is quite important here and used often, you can use makiu to destroy multiple enemies. With Shinobird power spot, Susa soldier's attack is 2500, elminating most 4 stars or lower monster, exlcuding Gardna, as well as other 5-6 star monsters.
Spirit's Invitation
Spirit's Invitation
This card can be good when used together with cards like inaba rabbit, you can ignore all enemies your opponent puts to the field and attack directly while also sending their monster back.
Release Restraint Wave
Release Restraint Wave
If you equip a spirit monster with mirror of yata, and that spirit monster survives for a turn, even if the mirror is destroyed, the spirit monster will not return to the hand due to the card's effect. This makes release restraint a good option if your spirit monster survives for at least a turn after being equipped with a mirror.
The Fiend Megacyber
The Fiend Megacyber
While not really a spirit monster, there will often be times where your opponent will summon more monsters than you. This card can take advantage of that situation.
Pineapple Blast
Pineapple Blast
Similar to megacyber, this card will let your opponent destroy their monsters to match your number in case they summon more than 1.

Nice! I'm trying something similar, but with Balance instead of Switcheroo.

where are the counter of HHG?
Can someone please give me a good deck involving some of the better cards in this deck? I've built this deck so I have all the cards but when I used it I didn't find all the cards useful and struggled with it a bit which is why I'm asking someone to perhaps show me a variation of it.

I used Unhappy Girl with Téa, added BES Big Core, and White Horned Dragon, and the deck works perfectly. Unhappy Girl can stall very well and serves as tribute when she starts to make you take too much damage
I feel like if you want to run this competitively you would have to run Relinquished with Senju and Sonic Bird. I did test one a while back and I am experiment with it on and off again.
Another way to run the deck that I definitely recommend is if you have Pegasus unlocked, play as Yami and run Relinquished and his ritual spell with Yami's Sorcery Conduit. Shinobird Power Spot gets you the spell and Conduit gets you the monster.
What about Balance to help get to power spots/mirrors or even golden apples?

Here this is my deck. It works pretty well.

Where is your deck?
I love how spirit monsters play but am struggling to find the right deck and I seem to keep getting field jammed with spell and traps. Like if your opponent keeps playing traps like windstorm or mirror I get to use jammer but then after they will almost wipe me anyone have deck suggestions

Try Harpies with HHG and the spirits.
What a dumpster fire of a deck.
No use of mystic box or the other spell card that lets you gain life points when your spirit monster destroys your opponent monster
This deck list is not very good. I run a different version of this deck and do fairly well
