The core strategy of this deck is destroying your own monsters via card effects to trigger their effects. At the center of this deck is Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys which can revive and destroy all spell/trap cards on the field after being destroyed by a card effect. And then there are the Fire King monsters, that quickly can swarm the field and also have great synergy with almost every card in this deck. Goka, the Pyre of Malice and Fire King Island provide support for destroying your own monsters and triggering their effects.

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.

Destroy Fire Kings

Fire King monster's effect activates when a monster you control is destroyed by card effects. Their primary effect is always special summoning them form your hand except during the damage step. In addition, they have secondary effects which support their play style.

  • Fire King Avatar Yaksha can destroy another card in your field or hand after he is destroyed. this can trigger the effect of Fire Kings, Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys or other cards you might add to this deck.
  • During the next standby phase after being destroyed by a card effect, Fire King Avatar Barong searches your deck for a Fire King monster and adds it to your hand. Destroying him while in your hand with Fire King Island or Fire King Yaksha is a great way to thin your deck and search for combo pieces.

Goka, the Pyre of Malice is a great card to use in this deck. Normal summon a Fire King monster then special summon Goka to destroy it. This puts a powerful monster on your field while aslo triggering your Fire King's effect, and can also cause other Fire Kings to be special summoned from your hand. You can also use destroy Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys with Goka's effect, giving you two high leveled monsters and clearing your opponent's backrow during your next stanby 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.

Damn!!!! Tier 1 now
Usually I wouldn't just post my deck but fk it, ranked let's you see other people's decks now anyway. Try this out, probably works out better than the ones on here cause it's more aggressive, good balance between deleting the backrow and a high powered berserk dragon and deleting their monsters.

Def. KOG material, I just don't understand the triple high tide. I feel like Wild Tornado/Bottomless Shifting Sands are much better. U could replace 1 Sphere with Barong.

Should only run 1-2 Deal + Berserk. I usually run something like: 3x Phoenix, 3x FKI, 3x Yaksha, 1x Barong, 2x CotS, 2x SRH, 2x Wild Tornado & 1x Sphere kuriboh. Been replacing 1 CotS with Kaiser Glider aswell and I am quite positive. U can destroy Kaiser with Yaksha, FKI or even Wild Tornado and push a 5*+ from the board. Also u can let the Phoenix destroy FKI while Yalsha/Barong is on the board.

This will allow you to special summon another Yaksha/Barong and u can use your regular summon to tribute that yaksha and put Kaiser Glider on the field. Been a lot of variation to it :)
