How to use this deck

Board control

The main aspect of this deck is field control, all cards in this deck are either used to remove cards form the field, to prevent attacks or to pin down cards.

  • Guardian Statue can activate and flip summon, returning your opponent's monster back to their hand, enabling an easy direct attack.
  • Sergeant Electro is used to lock the opponent's spell/traps, which might be better than destruction since it clogs their backrow.

Remove with Card Effect

  • Heavy Knight of the Flame, when re-summoned to gain his effect, removes from play any special summoned monster he battles. This is especially good against decks centered around special summoning monsters, like REBD decks and Toons.
  • Super Rush Headlong allows you to destroy any monster of a certain attribute of your choice with it's effect. Use this while your opponent attacks for both defense and monster removal.

Use Opponent's Attack Against Them

Use Mirror Wall or Magical Arm Shield to destroy your opponent's monster during their own attack.

  • Activate Mirror Wall to halve the attack of your opponent's monster during battle. This would almost always destroy your opponent's monster and force them to end the battle phase.
  • Use Magical Arm Shield when your opponent has 2 or more monsters on the field and uses their weaker monster to attack. Take control of their strongest monster and force them to attack it.
  • Use Super Rush Headlong then declare the attribute of the attacking monster.
    You can use Mirror Wall and Magical Arm Shield together to deal a high amount of damage.

Protecting your Monsters

Use spell/trap cards to protect your monsters and maintain control of the field. Enemy Controller and Windstorm of Etaqua changes the battle position of your opponent's monster to cancel their attacks.

Other useful cards

Half Shut
Half Shut
This will ensure your Guardian Statue will survive any attack.
Attack the Moon!
Attack the Moon!
Good synergy with Guardian Statue allows it's effect to be used every turn.
Interdimensional Matter Transporter
Interdimensional Matter Transporter
A really good defensive card to make sure Guardian Statue doesn't get targeted by anything, but it requires the card to be face-up.
Adhesion Trap Hole
Adhesion Trap Hole
This is effective if you put Guardian Statue face-down often. Only monster with 2800+ attack can get over Guardian Statue's defense.
A Feint Plan
A Feint Plan
Since this deck revolves around Guardian Statue this card can be considered the best support card for this deck.
Curse of Anubis
Curse of Anubis
A useful card to stall and save your statues in some circumstances, keep in mind normal monsters are not affected.

But without the card and in a total and bizarre arbitrary way. Giant Soldier of Stone is so big that it could attack the Equip Spell card that remained on the field even though the monster equipped was long gone. Then Umi was destroyed (cause why not) due to the connection moon-tide and electric attack fried Mako's fishes.

Among all the non sense of Duelist Kingdom season, this is probably the most legendary "fuck the rules, the show is mine I'll do what I want" moment. Just epic!

I'm now on Legend 3 with a slighty different version of this deck. Let's see if it can make it to KoG.
do you think they could upload a deck for those who didn't make it around for ultimate rising (hence no kuribohs or twisters)

I don't think so.. Ultimate rising had the most versatile cards, it's a shame that a lot of people don't have a lot of cards or only one copy of each one.. Konami really fucked up in my oppinion doing this

Konomi has stated that these cards might be available in the future. I'm guessing as Card Trader stock.

naturia/phoenix doesnt need ultimate rising cards
I think I'm like 100-2 against statue and crass clown decks. I don't know how people get to platinum with them. It's beyond me. Once I beat a crass clown at plat 5. No idea how he got that far.

BioSphere used this deck by putting one Sphere Ebola. So, the monster is exactly 10. And he win Dkayed's tournament.

Doesn't matter if you put it to 10 or 9 for this deck, this deck focuses more on getting a trap in your starting hand (5 traps) and the others would be at random.

They stole this from a Japanese YouTube channel. Shame that the website never credits.

Pretty standard deck, doesn't really take a genius to make it. Just a newer version of a deck that has been around since the beginning lol
