Overview

Note: This deck is based on the deck Koizumi used during the WCS Finals.

The strategy of this deck fully revolves around destroying Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys and reviving him with his own effect to clear the field of all spell/trap cards. The skill Restart is to help us draw a playable starting hand. And defensive cards like Sphere Kuriboh and Super Rush Headlong 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 destroying him while in your hand is a much quicker and less costly way of summoning him.

Do not get destroyed by battle

Getting Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys destroyed by card effects is fine, and most of the time will even be to your advantage. But you gain nothing from having Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys destroyed by battle, so protect him from stringer monster's attack.

  • Sphere Kuriboh can be activated from the hand therefore it would be a better choice for this deck than to add protection spell and traps which would most likely be destroyed by your Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys.
  • Super Rush Headlong protects your monster from attacks by monsters of an attribute you declare. Helpful since most archtypes revolve around a single attribute, forcing your opponent to end the battle phase.

How to use (Soul Exchange ver.)

Tribute opponent's monsters

Use Soul Exchange on an opponent's monster to be able to use it as tribute this turn. Summon Hand of Nephthys then activate her effect, using herself and your opponents monster as tribute you can special summon Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys from hand or deck. You can also use Soul Exchange to tribute summon Goka, the Pyre of Malice if you don't have Hand of Nephthys on hand and you need to remove your opponent's monster from the field. Tokens summoned by Goka, the Pyre of Malice can also be used for Hand of Nephthys' effect.

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.

Just keep destroying the field card. Pretty much cripples them as well as wipes their field. Also sphere kuriboh can’t be destroyed and Phoenix has low defence.

Toons gets annihilated by phoenix. Red eyes is ok but doens't really counter it. And naturia is nowhere near being a top tier deck.

How do people ever win with this. Litterally takes 3 turns to get going and you still have no answer to red eyes, which litterally everybody plays at plat or higher. Ice barrier also crushes this deck. Really feel you need to many cards to get the Phoenix on the field and it takes to long. Naturia also seems to destroy this. I really tried and I understand how it is supposed to work but especially red eyes just crushes this deck as they just trigger their traps when Phoenix spawns and then beatdown kill the Phoenix.

Puzzle Reborn: Revives any 1(One) monster on the field destroyed by an effect that turn. Its not used often, as there aren't *that many controlled Destruction cards to make full use. Still a very good card, think Time Machine for effects instead of battle.

I'd go with restart so you have a much higher chance of finding essential cards in your starting hand.. also works when you get a crappy hand

How to Counter:
Anti Meta Deck with Statue.

After GX and all that stuff comes out, no one will ever play these old decks again. So save your money.
