update 15/07/2017


The strategy of this deck fully revolves around summoning Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys and destroying him to make use of his effect. The skill beatdown makes up for this deck only having a 2400 as it's highest attack. And defensive cards like Sphere Kuriboh and Enemy Controller are added to make sure Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys is not destroyed by battle.

How to use

Add Nephthys to hand

Card of the Soul can search any monster in your deck, but the down side is that the monster has to have a combined attack and defense points equal to your current life points making this card somewhat difficult to use. The best use for Card of the Soul in this deck would be to search for Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys while your life points are still at a full 4000.

Special summon Nephthys

Tribute summoning Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys is not recommended since you have other quicker ways of summoning him.

Destroy Nephthys

When Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys is destroyed by a card effect he revives himself during your next standby phase and clears the field of all spell/trap cards. By using cards that take advantage of his effect we are able to continuously clear the enemy's backrow.

This deck wrecks toons and a lot of other decks. Only thing it consistently loses to is red eyes beat down

Idk about 6.5. Went from gold 5 to plat 3 with an 80% win rate against a lot of meta decks.

Do you think this deck will also work with only 2 Phoenix? I'd like to build and try it but don't have 3.

2 is ok. But 3 makes it more consistent. The you could replace card if the souls for a third.

Whenever i meet a fire king deck it.s like a free win for me, yet people keep spending a shitload of money on a deck that.s no more than a 6.5/10

It.s my own version of a gemini deck. Man I won.t show it, only stupid people show their decks to others and let them copy paste it. I.m only in platinum with it, but considering it was cheap and i.m a f2p player, it.s really good. Fire king decks aren.t bad, they just suck for the price ;)

Huh, you're as dumb as your name sounds. But a well made FK/Phoenix deck should be on par, if not trounce, Geminis that are "f2p". Now I'm even more interested...

I don't know who's raiting decks at Gamea but you should switch jobs. You're extremely bad at it, sincerely.

Phoenix is the 2nd best deck right now (I'm a KoG player this season). I used it to reach KoG extremely fast.

Are you serious? You need run this build with Fire King Island and Restart.

In this case, 1st phoenix revive --> destroying S/T (including FKI) --> triggering FKI effect --> the 1st phoenix and all ur monster died --> after that resolved, the 2nd phoenix will revive. Nice combo, isn't it??

No no, the combo is quite deceptive. However, its the REDONKULOUS high cost to pull it is what I believe everyone disagrees with. So do I honestly, but OK, its something.

I actually understood it & its also exactly how I envision it would happen every time as I coulda sworn RE Wyvern was the same way. But I made a test deck in YGOPro and, with FK assistance, I was able to push the necessary scenario for this combo & ...for whatever reason, they ARE separate summons & since Nephtys' effect is immediate when its summoned, FK Island basically has no choice but to act

So, redonkulous and seemingly stupid combo aside, I would like to just say that I love the other FK cards & need them in DL. Also yea, Garunix can potentially DESTROY DL if it came. Holy crap, what a fun Fire Archetype.

great combo with goka and fire king to destroy phoenix on the field and hand
Daemon Blitzkrieg 8days ago
Huh, I keep forgetting the High Tide even exists, only to immediately remember how tricky its effects are. But yea, it melds with Nephtys pretty well.

Btw, FK Island is NOT necessary w/ ANY Nephtys deck. Please people, they weren't even made for each other & can actually be a bad combo if you're not careful.
