  • Generic Synchro materials.
  • Mass removal effect.


  • Effect is costly to activate.


Degenerate Circuit

Instead of returning to your opponent’s hand, Degenerate Circuit will banish those cards instead.

Hino Kagu-Tsuchi

After returning your opponent’s cards to their hand, attack and deal damage with Hino Kagu-Tsuchi forcing your opponent to discard their entire hand so they cannot reuse the bounced cards.


Brionac only needs generic synchro materials making his summoning fairly easy. Here are some examples of easy level-6 Synchro plays. Blackwing - Blizzard the Far North can revive a level-4 Blackwing monster. Psychic Wheeleader Special Summons himself when you control a level-3 monster.

Quillbolt Hedgehog can revive itself when you summon a level-4 Tuner monster. When you control a level-4 monster, you can Special Summon Plaguespreader Zombie.

Discard Options

Discard cards that can activate effects while in the graveyard to get use out of the cost.

Debris cannot be used to synchro into brionac.

Yes, Debris Dragon can only be used for Dragon-Type Synchro monsters, Thanks for mentioning the error, Debris Dragon has been removed from the notes
His name says he's a Dragon.
But it's actually a Sea Serpent, I guess they didn't want it to be compatible with spells/traps that affect dragons, otherwise it COULD be kinda op...

tbf what decks can reliably make Trish rn? The 2 non-tuner requirement does cut out a lot of contenders

I don't care if anyone else agree with me or not, but for sure I have to support my own post...
Well you deserve that
I have reached Kog with Red-Eyes. Tbh this deck feels like garbage against the current meta.
