Nephthys Gusto: deck recipe

Duel Links Breaking News

update 23/02/2019

Overview

Here’s another way to take advantage of the new “Nephthys” cards from Absolute Inferno: by adding Gusto Griffin and Gusto Gulldo, you now have a way to utilize Disciple of Nephthys and Devotee of Nephthys after you activated their effects.

How to Use

Gusto Griffin

If Gusto Griffin is sent from your hand to the Graveyard, it allows you to Special Summon a “Gusto” monster from your Deck. Destroy Gusto Griffin to activate Disciple of Nephthys’s effect, add Devotee of Nephthys or Cerulean Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys to your hand and then Special Summon Gusto Gulldo from your Deck.

Now you can use Disciple of Nephthys and Gusto Gulldo to Synchro Summon Armades, Keeper of Boundaries, which is already better than leaving a 0 ATK monster in face-up Attack Position, or Ritual Summon Devotee of Nephthys using Disciple of Nephthys, activate its effect to Special Summon Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys from your Deck and then use your Level 2 Ritual Monster, which would end up being destroyed by its own effect anyway, and Gusto Gulldo to Summon the Level 5 Synchro.

Another way to send Gusto Griffin from your hand to the Graveyard would be to Tribute it to Ritual Summon Devotee of Nephthys since they are both Level 2. After Summoning Devotee and Special Summoning Gusto Gulldo, you can Special Summon Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys and then Armades, Keeper of Boundaries, establishing a pretty solid board.

Devotee of Nephthys

Upon being Ritual Summoned, Devotee allows you to Special Summon a “Nephthys” monster from your Deck. You can't Special Summon another Devotee or a Cerulean Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys, but you can Summon Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys or Disciple of Nephthys.

You can Special Summon Devotee from your Graveyard by destroying a “Nephthys” card in your hand. Use this effect to trigger Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys or Disciple of Nephthys's effect.

Cerulean Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys

You can add Cerulean Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys to your hand with Disciple of Nephthys’s effect or with Card of the Soul, if you want to save your Normal Summon for Sonic Bird. If you Tribute Cerulean Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys or Devotee of Nephthys with Rebirth of Nephthys, you will get to destroy a card on the field. Note that the destruction effect of Rebirth of Nephthys does not target.

Once per turn, Cerulean Sacred Phoenix allows you to destroy any number of “Nephthys” cards in your hand and/or face-up on your side of the field to destroy an equal amount of monsters your opponent controls. You can destroy a face-up Attack Position Disciple of Nephthys to activate this effect while also getting rid of a liability.

If it was destroyed by battle or card effect, Cerulean Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys will Special Summon itself from the Graveyard during your next Standby Phase. If Cerulean Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys was destroyed by Disciple of Nephthys, its effect will not activate because it wasn’t properly Summoned first.

Armades, Keeper of Boundaries

Armades is a Level 5 Synchro that is able to prevent your opponent from activating cards or effects until the end of the Damage Step if it attacks or is attacked; your opponent will not be able to use Sphere Kuriboh, Drowning Mirror Force, Widespread Ruin and Wall of Disruption, but you will still have access to your own Spell & Trap Cards.

If you destroy Silent Magician by battle, its effect will not activate and your opponent will not be able to Special Summon Silent Magician LV8; you can attack freely into a face-down Man-Eater Bug or Snowman Eater with Armades because they won’t be able to activate their effects and destroy it.

Mist Wurm

Mist Wurm is a bit situational because it requires two non-Tuner monsters instead of just one, so you can’t use Level Augmentation to facilitate Summoning it, but it’s definitely a card worth keeping in your Extra Deck. This Level 9 Synchro is able to bounce three cards on your opponent’s side of the field, which can easily open up for an OTK.

Giganticastle

Giganticastle is much easier to Summon compared to Mist Wurm; this Level 9 Synchro is here solely for its high ATK.

Level Augmentation is really a fantastic Skill: it allows you to Ritual Summon Cerulean using only a Disciple or a Sonic Bird, notably increasing the consistency of the deck.

Restart
Can be used only once after starting hands are dealt. Reveal and redraw your starting hand. Your first Draw will be skipped if you use this Skill.

The deck is generally pretty consistent, but, while testing, I have definitely seen a few horrible hands: you might want to use this Skill to avoid unplayable hands.

Weaknesses

  • There is very little space for backrow, so Armades, Keeper of Boundaries is not able to perform at its best.
  • If both copies of Gusto Gulldo are drawn, you can’t activate Gusto Griffin’s effect.
  • If Devotee and Cerulean are drawn, you can’t activate Disciple’s effect anymore.
  • A few cards in the deck do not interact with each other, which can cause issues when it comes to consistency.
  • The deck is pretty weak on Turn 1 without Canadia: an aggressive deck could easily take advantage of this and OTK you.

Do not spend gems on this decklist. The combo with gusto never comes out. I've spent 2500 gems to get the gustos I didn't have and after 10 duels I was able to use this combo only once. I'd rather put some backrow instead, gives more consistency, and better winrate
