Yubel Fire King: deck recipe

Duel Links Breaking News
New pack: Absolute Inferno!
update 06/11/2018

Overview

The concept behind this deck is actually quite old: Yubel synergizes very well with the “Fire King” archetype and its second form, Yubel - Terror Incarnate, together with Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys, can actually lock down the opponent completely.

How to Use

Yubel & Fire King Island

Once per turn, you can destroy a monster in your hand or that you control with Fire King Island and then add a “Fire King” monster from your deck to your hand or, if you control no monsters, you can Special Summon 1 Winged-Beast FIRE monster from your hand.

The first part of the effect of the Field Spell allows you to trigger Yubel’s effect and Special Summon Yubel - Terror Incarnate from your hand, Deck or Graveyard while also adding Fire King Avatar Yaksha or Fire King Avatar Barong to your hand, whereas with the second part you would be able to get Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys on the field right away.

This is the combination of cards that you want to start with: My Name is Yubel allows you shuffle back into the Deck one of the two other forms of the monster and add a copy of the first form to your hand, making the deck more consistent.

Fire King Avatar Yaksha

If you did not start with Fire King Island, don’t worry, you can still activate Yubel’s effect: when Yaksha is destroyed by battle or card effect and sent to the Graveyard, you can destroy a card in your hand or that you control.

Yaksha’s effect is not mandatory, so you don’t have to activate it, but you can use it to send Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys to the Graveyard and destroy all Spell/Trap Cards on the field when it’s revived by its own effect on your next turn.

Fire King Avatar Barong

You can’t activate Fire King Island’s effect unless you have a “Fire King” monster in your Deck to add to your hand. Barong has the exact same stats as Yaksha and, just like it, it can be Special Summoned from your hand when a face-up “Fire King” monster you control is destroyed by card effect.
If Barong is destroyed by card effect, you can add another “Fire King” card from your deck to your hand during the next Standby Phase, including the Field Spell.

Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys & Yubel - Terror Incarnate Lockdown

Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys Special Summons itself from the Graveyard during your Standby Phase after it was destroyed by card effect, destroying all Spell/Trap Cards on the field, whereas Yubel - Terror Incarnate destroys all monsters on the field, except for itself during your End Phase: these two cards can completely lock your opponent, wiping out everything that is on the field every single turn.

Without Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys this deck would have trouble dealing with Amazons as they can just banish Yubel and Yaksha with Amazoness Onslaught, so it’s pretty important to have it, even though going back to Dawn of Destiny to get three copies of it is not advised.

Yubel - The Ultimate Nightmare

The best thing about Yubel is easily the fact that, when it is destroyed by card effect, it floats into its next form, but there is to say that, among all three, the “final form” is the most underwhelming. Sure, you can attack your opponent’s monsters, deal effect damage equal to their attack and then destroy them, but it just doesn’t compare to blowing up all monsters on the field.

Sphere Kuriboh

Since Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys is going to destroy your own Spell/Traps too, you can’t really run common Battle Traps like Wall of Disruption or even cards like Paleozoic Canadia because you run the risk of wasting them; Sphere Kuriboh is great in this deck because it’s a Hand Trap, your opponent can’t do anything about it Hey, Trunade! or Cosmic Cyclone.

Sphere Kuriboh can avoid OTKs from decks like Masked HEROes, Fur Hires and Vampires while you wait for Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys to come back.

This Skill makes the deck a lot more consistent, making it easier to start your main combo. You obviously don’t want to Special Summon Terror Incarnate or Ultimate Nightmare from your hand and My Name is Yubel allows you to shuffle them back into the Deck.

Other Useful Cards

CardExplanation
Planet Pathfinder
Planet Pathfinder
You can tribute this card to add Fire King Island to your hand; it’s not a bad choice, but you are still likely wasting your Normal Summon to get it on the field and a Floodgate Trap Hole or Paleozoic Canadia would easily stop it.
Limit Reverse
Limit Reverse
This Continuous Trap can revive Yubel, it does have synergy with it, but, since the deck runs Phoenix, it might not be worth it.

Matchups

Vampire Matchup

Sphere Kuriboh can avoid OTKs, Phoenix can blow up both Vampire's Domain and Vampire Kingdom and it doesn’t matter if the latter destroys it since it would just come back the next turn.

Vampire are usually very fast to set up, but their only way of getting rid of Yubel is through Vampire Kingdom’s effect, which is limited to once per turn. Even if Terror Incarnate is destroyed, you would still get to summon Ultimate Nightmare and attacking into Vampire Vamp, Vampire Grace or Vampire Scarlet Scourge with it and causing pretty substantial damage.

Fur Hire Matchup

Wiz, Sage Fur Hire can negate Fire King Island, Dyna, Hero Fur Hire can banish Phoenix from the Graveyard and Donpa, Marksman Fur Hire can destroy Terror Incarnate, but you still would get Yubel - The Ultimate Nightmare on the field. Fur Hires are quite problematic, but they not impossible to beat: Sphere Kuriboh can save you from an OTK while you set up for Terror Incarnate; even Fur Hires have trouble recovering from a full board wipe.

Amazoness Matchup

As I said, Amazoness Onslaught can be very problematic, but Phoenix should be enough to deal with it; the protection the Amazoness Queen provides for Amazoness monsters is pretty irrelevant since Terror Incarnate can destroy them with its effect and you generally don’t have to fear Amazoness Swords Woman attacking into your monsters since the one that is going to stay on the field has 0 ATK.

Not the easiest matchup, but, once Phoenix gets rid of the Continuous Trap, it should be pretty easy to win.

U.A Matchup

Cosmic Cyclone can get rid of Fire King Island on activation, preventing you from summoning Terror Incarnate and U.A. Penalty Box can get rid Yubel or Phoenix without destroying them for a few turns, but that’s the only way they have to get rid of your Boss Monster aside from Treacherous Trap Hole.

Masked HERO Matchup

Masked HEROes tend to try and end games very quickly, but they don’t usually have monster removal aside from Treacherous Trap Hole, so their best way of getting rid of Terror Incarnate would be to target it with Forbidden Chalice and then attack it while its effects are negated.

Again Sphere Kuriboh is very important: your opponent has no way of knowing you have it as long as you are not giving it away.

Silent Spellbook Matchup

Spellbook of Fate can banish Terror Incarnate or Phoenix, if your opponent wants to set cards freely, and, even if you destroy Silent Magician, its effect would Special Summon the Silent Magician LV8 version. Silent Magician can negate a Spell Card per turn, so Fire King Island might end up being useless, so this is possibly one of the hardest matchups.

I just hit KoG with Yubel mill in a format full of Koaki Meiru no-brainers. I won 12 out of 12 games vs Koaki Meiru through Legend. Dont hate on this deck only because it does well into your Meta trash. The only thing this deck struggled with was e-con and U.A./Amazoness banishing Terror.

My recommendation is to not use sphere ebola but regular ebola instead. If you’ve got shallow grave use that, Ultimate nightmare will do its best to neutralize the shallow grave downside

Using regular Ebola vs Sphere Ebola let’s you survive armades and U.A slugger by affecting you vs changing their battle position.

Armades and Mighty Slugger aren't Star Eater. They don't give a crap what's affected. You just straight can't activate anything, including Kuriboh.

an update about this mill strategy: Koa'ki meiru are using canadia to flip Ultimate terror facedown

I think they caught on so this deck isn't an auto win if your opponent knows what to do

Lol I think people kinda hates this deck because it's pretty much f2p. Not really expensive at all, most of its cards are from an event and phoenix is not expensive at all. (Excluding Sphere kuriboh's ofc). But you can play it without them.

You cant play this deck without Sphere Kuriboh

Masked heroes and Koakis will make Hamburgers from you because no background trap protection

Actually you can (sphere is the best card to use but you can run this deck with 2 econs, tribute/offering of the doomed and a wall of disruption in place of the spheres, not as survivable but MUCH cheaper than going through ultimate rising for 1 card)

LOL what?
Wall of disruption in Sacred phoenix deck?
Also it is not survivable at all
The main advantage of the Sphere kuriboh is that you can activate it from your hand, while the placed traps can easily be removed.

Well yeah, basically this deck is F2P. Phoenix is not hard to obtain and the only expensive card you'll need would be Sphere Kuribohs (which you can get thanks to Dream Tickets).

Unlike all the skilled players out there who play Cosmic Cyclone into Drilldark/Decider, spam Mask Change and win in 1 turn.

Main reason Yubel is played is because it's the only real hard counter to vampire and Masked hero Bs

To be fair, it's a pretty boring deck to face, especially if you don't have a lot of outs to Yubel. I actually encountered someone USING the deck getting bored of it and Tributing their Terror Incarnate off just to try and get some damage in, lol.

The deck isnt that bad, all you really need is a single destruction card or forbidden chalice to break the chain (only problem is if they get phoenix and TI on the field, and with how often this bricks? Not much of a problem if you include some counter cards.

You are wrong they are not cheap

It is better to invest some money into the game if you want to play noble Masked heroes or BEWD

Put Yubel the Ultimate nightmare in defence position and laugh hard when they try to ram into it. Stardust is useless, Canadia and Enemy controller are biggest counters

Calculator runs over stardust as long as no back row or kuriboh, which with terror incarnate being priority to negate, usually means Phoenix wipes S/T for free.

I done this and econ take to pop with island so many times on ladder, and they scoop immediately

BBlader the Dragon Destruction Swordmaster + DNA Surgery shuts down final Yubel's effect or not? The one time I fought someone with Yubel I pulled out my boss monster + DNA Surgery field which meant I didn't have time to check for interactions.

You dont need to negate her effect, just activate dna surgery and offer her as a tribute to summon your busterblader the destruction swordsman from your extra deck lol

This deck is so broken and still loses to even more broken decks.. Too many decks with blow
destruction and banishing effects..

I suggest running at least 1 Calculator in this deck, for some cheeky damage burst.

I tried the Mill warm worm version and Phoenix Calculator beatdown

After hundreds of games I reached KOG with the mix version of both

In Deck Destruction Version, I feel like Shallow Grave isn't the optimal ones to revive Warm Worm because it's giving a room for opponent's counterplay. Can other revival cards for the deck be used, or was it intended to use so that Yubel/s can have an attack target as well on the opponent's side of the field?

You could use Limit Reverse, and replace Double Trap Hole with Windstorm of Etaqua or some other stall card.

I personally prefer Limit, since it can draw your opponent's anti-S/T cards. Plus if you use it during your opponent's turn, you can swap the revived monster to defense mode in order to blow it up, to trigger any related destruction effects.

Shallow Grave is still very effective though, since if you have Terror Incarnate on the field, all monsters summoned by Shallow will be destroyed during your End Phase anyway. Plus, Shallow isn't limited strictly to monsters with 1000 or less attack, so it could work with Phoenix, if you run a copy or two.
