Level Augmentation
Reveal 1 monster in your hand and select 1 monster on your side of the field. The selected monster's level increase by the level of the monster you revealed. This Skill can only be used once per Duel.

How to Play

Shiranui Squire

When Shiranui Squire is Normal Summoned, you can Special Summon 1 “Shiranui Spectralsword” monster from your hand or Deck. If you use this effect, Squire will prevent you from Special Summoning monsters for the rest of the turn, except Zombie monsters, which is why the only non-zombie monster in the Deck is Dragonecro Nethersoul Dragon, a Fusion Monster that you are mostly going to Summon during your opponent’s turn.

  • Normal Summon Squire;
  • Special Summon Shiranui Spectralsword Shade;
  • Synchro Summon Shiranui Squiresaga.

Shiranui Squiresaga

Once per turn, during your Main Phase, Shiranui Squiresaga allows you to banish 1 face-up monster you control or in your Graveyard and then, depending on what the monster was before it was banished, you can apply the following effects in sequence:

  • If it was a Zombie, you can have all monsters you control gain 300 ATK;
  • If it was a FIRE monster, you can destroy 1 Spell/Trap Card on the field;
  • If it was a Synchro, you can destroy 1 monster on the field.

Shiranui Squiresaga gives you monster removal, back row removal, and a permanent ATK boost while also triggering the effects of Squire, Spiritmaster, and Solitaire.

  • If Squire is banished, you can draw 1 card and then discard 1 card;
  • If Spiritmaster is banished, you can target 1 face-up card your opponent controls and destroy it;
  • If Solitaire is banished, you can target 1 of your banished “Shiranui” monsters (except Solitaire) and Special Summon it.

Note that you can trigger any of these effects by banishing Squire, Spiritmaster, or Solitaire directly from your Deck via Gold Sarcophagus.

Now, in order to destroy a monster with Squiresaga’s effect, you do have to banish a Synchro Monster, which may sound like a waste, until you realize that Squiresaga can banish itself and you only need Shiranui Squire in order to bring it out. I’m not saying you are always going to banish Squiresaga via its own effect, I’m just saying that, since it’s a Synchro FIRE Zombie, if you did, you would get a lot of value from it.

Since you can only Special Summon Shiranui Squiresaga once per turn if you Synchro Summon it and you banish it via its own effect, you are not going to be able to Special Summon it right away via Solitaire’s effect, but you can still do it on your next turn.

Shiranui Spiritmaster & Shiranui Solitaire

When Shiranui Spiritmaster is Normal Summoned, you can Special Summon 1 “Shiranui” monster from your hand or Graveyard (except Shiranui Spiritmaster), but banish it when it leaves the field.

  • Normal Summon Spiritmaster and Special Summon Solitaire from your hand;
  • Tribute Solitaire to Special Summon Shiranui Spectralsword;
  • Synchro Summon Shiranui Samuraisaga.

Alternatively, if you lead with Gold Sarcophagus, you can:

  • Banish Squire from your Deck (with Gold Sarcophagus);
  • Draw 1 card and discard Solitaire;
  • Normal Summon Spiritmaster and Special Summon Solitaire from the GY;
  • Tribute Solitaire to Special Summon Shiranui Spectralsword;
  • Special Summon the banished Squire via Solitaire’s effect;
  • Synchro Summon Shiranui Sunsaga.

You are not always going to be able to do this, but learning what your cards can do and what certain combinations can lead to is very important.

Necro Fusion & Dragonecro Nethersoul Dragon

Necro Fusion allows you to Fusion Summon 1 Fusion Monster from your Extra Deck by banishing Fusion Materials listed on it from your GY. Since the Fusion Materials are banished face-down, Necro Fusion will not trigger the effects of your “Shiranui” monsters, but it will still give you a 3000 ATK monster that can easily close out the Duel.

Shiranui Squire prevents you from Summoning Dragonecro after you Normal Summon it, so I decided to run Necro Fusion instead of Dragon's Mirror. You activate it during your opponent's turn to set up an OTK, or for protection; the fact that it doesn't have synergy with the archetype doesn't really matter since it's meant to close out the game on the next turn. Also Special Summoning it during the Battle Phase puts your opponent in an awkard spot because, if they attack it, their monster's ATK becomes 0. Necro Fusion really helps out in the early turns, where Shiranui struggles.

Additional Notes

Level Duplication
Reveal 1 monster in your hand and select 1 monster on your side of the field. The selected monster's level will become equal to the level of the monster you revealed. This Skill can only be used once per Duel.

If you turn Shiranui Spectralsword or Shiranui Spectralsword Shade into a Level 4, you can Synchro Summon Shiranui Shogunsaga with ease.

Holy Guard
You receive no battle damage during your turn.

Holy Guard works really well in combination with Shiranui Samurai; it makes getting rid of the now Limited Invoked Cocytus fairly safe.

Oof, I built Darklords for FREE 7 months ago. It's still meta today.

Ban lists are meaningless these days, Konami have been managing this game like champs. Congrats.

I agree. Crybabies cry for a limit on everything. Though I agree grass shiranui is a bit strong, the facts are that the meta is constantly changing and if you're creative you can counter meta decks with many of the underrated cards that exist.

Shiranui is fine, meanwhile grass is not. I can see a future where people will use the exact grass variant for infernoids, lightsworn etc.

Same here, I hope they don't touch it. It's not even more popular than Invokeds or SUPER DARK MAGICIAN.

This deck has so much swag and the artwork is superb, I don't think it needs regulation; thanks to Dark Magician the meta feels as balanced as ever.
