How To Play

Black Luster Soldier - Super Soldier

Black Luster Soldier - Super Soldier
Black Luster Soldier - Super Soldier
EARTH Warrior ★8
ATK 3000 / DEF 2500
Chaotic Soldiers [UR]
You can Ritual Summon this card with "Super Soldier Ritual". If this card destroys an opponent's monster by battle and sends it to the Graveyard: Inflict damage to your opponent equal to its ATK in the Graveyard. If this card is destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard, or if this card in your possession is destroyed by an opponent's card effect and sent to your Graveyard: You can Special Summon 1 "Gaia The Fierce Knight" monster from your hand, Deck, or Graveyard. You can only Special Summon "Black Luster Soldier - Super Soldier(s)" once per turn.

While it may seem unimpressive since it requires a lot of cards to just bring this out, BLS monsters have some ritual supports that will give them some additional effects.

Use the skill to reliably search for either BLS or Super Soldier Synthesis. Gateway to Chaos can search for both BLS and the ritual spell as well, but if you want to make a play right away, you can use Cosmic Cyclone on the field spell after the search so you can use the skill.

Ritual summon BLS with Super Soldier Synthesis using a combination of Beginning and Evening Twilight Knights from your hand and deck. This will give your BLS a total of 4 effects:

  • Can banish a monster your opponent controls twice. Activated separately.
  • Able to attack twice if the first attack destroys a monster.
  • Can banish 1 card from your opponent's hand temporarily.

Selection Box Vol.05 [UR]
Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must first be Special Summoned (from your hand) by banishing 1 LIGHT and 1 DARK monster from your Graveyard. Once per turn, you can activate 1 of these effects.

● Target 1 monster on the field; banish that target face-up. This card cannot attack the turn you activate this effect.
● If this attacking card destroys an opponent's monster by battle, after damage calculation: It can make a second attack in a row.

Easily special summonable in this deck since there are LIGHT and DARK monsters. Its effect is pretty decent for either monster removal or as an OTK option.

Master of Chaos [SR]
If your opponent controls more monsters than you do, you can Normal Summon this card without Tributing. If this card is Tributed: You can Special Summon 1 "Black Luster Soldier" monster from your hand or Graveyard. You can only use this effect of "Arisen Gaia the Fierce Knight" once per turn. When you Ritual Summon a "Black Luster Soldier" monster, you can banish this card from your Graveyard as 1 of the monsters required for the Ritual Summon.

Arisen Gaia's first effect will allows you to special summon "Black Luster Soldier" from your Graveyard when this card is Tributed. Keep in mind that those "Black Luster Soldier" monsters in this Deck cannot be special summoned from your hand by this effect and they must be first be summoned according proper condition.

Similar to Charging Gaia, Arisen Gaia can also be used to help ritual summon Super Soldier since it's a level 7 plus Sphere Kuriboh for the level 1.

You can Normal Summon this card without Tributing. If this card is Normal Summoned without Tributing, its original ATK becomes 1900. If this card is Tributed: You can add 1 "Black Luster Soldier" monster from your Deck to your hand. You can only use this effect of "Charging Gaia the Fierce Knight" once per turn.

This is mainly so that BLS - Super Soldier can float into something when destroyed, but it can also be used to help ritual summon Super Soldier since it's a level 7 plus Sphere Kuriboh for the level 1.

It can also be searched with Gateway to Chaos when it's activated the first time, and can be normal summoned right away if you have no other monsters to make a play. It's fine if it gets destroyed since Super Soldier can special summon Gaia from hand, deck, or grave.

When an opponent's monster declares an attack: You can send this card from your hand to the Graveyard; change the attacking monster to Defense Position. When you Ritual Summon a monster, you can banish this card from your Graveyard as 1 of the monsters required for the Ritual Summon.

Aside from its function as the defense/anti-OTK tech of this Deck, Sphere Kuriboh can also be used to help ritual summon Super Soldier using Super Soldier Synthesis because of its level, effect, and attribute.

Beginning Knight & Evening Twilight Knight

If you use both Beginning and Evening Twilight Knight to Ritual Summon Black Luster Soldier, you'll be able to banish up to two enemy monsters per turn since they are treated as two different effects.

Aside from the blatantly powerful removal effect, they also offer second effects that you can use if you don't activate the respective removal effect. Beginning Knight gives you a second attack, good for pushing damage and clearing monsters. Evening Twilight Knight lets you temporarily banish a card from the oppponent's hand, which can be particularly annoying if you're lucky enough to banish a card necessary to their main combo.

ATK 2800 / DEF 1000
Chaotic Soldiers [UR]

Once per turn, if you have exactly 5 DARK monsters in your GY, you can also Xyz Summon "Dark Armed, the Dragon of Annihilation" by using 1 Level 5 or higher DARK Dragon monster you control as material. You can detach 1 material from this card, then target 1 card your opponent controls; destroy it, then banish 1 card from your GY, also, this card cannot attack for the rest of this turn.

Has a card removal effect that you can use multiple times in a turn, up to however many materials you use to make it. Needing to banish a card in your grave won't be a big issue since you can use it on the used spells/traps like Beginning of Heaven and Earth.

DARK Dragon ★7
ATK 2800 / DEF 2400
Maximum Gustav [SR]
Selection Box Vol.03 Mini [SR]

Once per turn, during either player's turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 "Red-Eyes" Normal Monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon it.

This deck doesn't play Red-Eyes for this to really have an impact, but its burn effect can add up, or if you just need the extra damage. Its good for when you don't really want to attack into your opponent if they play stall or cancerous decks.

Number 70: Malevolent Sin
Number 70: Malevolent Sin
DARK Insect ★4
ATK 2400 / DEF 1200
Photons of Galaxy [SR]

2 Level 4 monsters
During either player's turn, when a Level 5 or higher monster would be Special Summoned: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; negate the Special Summon, and if you do, destroy it.

Roach is great for monster suppresion, much like a Trap Hole card. When your opponent summons a boss monster, use Roach's effect to immediately destroy it. This is an especially good counter against Synchro Decks. But most of the time, just Roach's presence on the field is enough to deter the opponent from making big monsters.

Diamond Dire Wolf

Voltage of the Metal [SR]
2 Level 4 monsters
Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 Beast, Beast-Warrior, or Winged Beast-Type monster you control and 1 other card on the field; destroy them.

Dire Wolf is a good generic removal option. Its purpose is to destroy itself along with an enemy card.

Number 68: Sanaphond the Sky Prison
DARK Rock ★8
ATK 2100 / DEF 2700
Infinite Ray [R]
Fantastic Arc [R]
2 Level 8 monsters
Gains 100 ATK and DEF for each monster in the GYs. Once per turn: You can detach 1 material from this card; until the end of your opponent's next turn, this card cannot be destroyed by card effects, also neither player can Special Summon monsters from the GYs.

Sanaphond is another powerful Rank-8 you can make. The Deck does a lot of discarding, so late game Sanaphond should easily reach 3000+ ATK. The detach effect is also very powerful, doubling as both protection and graveyard control. Be careful because this also prevents you from reviving "Black Luster Soldier" monster.

Other Cards Option

Other Extra Decks

Number C39: Utopia Ray
Number C39: Utopia Ray
LIGHT Warrior ★4
ATK 2500 / DEF 2000
Infinite Ray [UR]

You can also Xyz Summon this card by using a "Number 39: Utopia" you control as the Xyz Material. (Xyz Materials attached to that monster also become Xyz Materials on this card.) You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; it gains 500 ATK and 1 monster your opponent controls loses 1000 ATK, until the End Phase. You must have 1000 Life Points or less to activate and to resolve this effect.

As we know there is 3 unavoidable requirement for BLS ritual:
1)ritual monster
2)ritual spell
3)one of the pair light/dark monster(trap immunity option = LVL1 djin + LVL7 charging gaia)

if u have all resources in ur starting hand u will end up having 1/2 cards left and cuz u focus on having 3 required stuff for ritual...I suggest we must decide about "protecting ace monster" or "eliminating the backrow" and not both of them... in this way there is better chance that other 1/2 doing that role!
In my opinion protecting come first!

You either get bls as a kicka$$ finisher with the use of chibi knights or better try a different ritual monster. Protecting a 3000 vanilla is not the best idea.

To be fair, there are 4 ritual materials, 2 ritual spells, 2 BLS related field spells, and 1 BLS related monster.
That's 9 in total.

It's your boss monster, your strategy is all about summoning the fastest way possible and you can re-summon it from GY several times, why to use more copies?

Lol. 8 boxes and 7 of them is main box. But still not top tier. Better use thunder dragon and demolisher for better protection and less expensive.

Even this sample deck doesn't use the exclusive BLS skill.

I just want to share the Black Luster Soldier deck I use which, surprisingly, works pretty nice in this full target meta and it is quite “consistent” for a ritual deck.
The main idea is to summon Black Luster Soldier using Djinn Demolisher of Rituals as one of the ritual materials and then use Yugi Muto skill “Pathway to Chaos” to transform him to a target immune Super Soldier!
The deck list:

Skill: Pathway to chaos (Yugi Muto – DSOD)

Monsters: 14
2x Black Luster Soldier
1x Gaia The Fierce Knight of Origin: Combines with the field, the Black Luster Soldier Super Soldier and can help you make easy XYZ
3x Thunder Dragon: Level 5 ritual material that works perfect with Gateway to Chaos
2x Djinn Demolisher of Ritual: The real deck “boss”
2x Sonic Bird: Searcher for ritual spell
3x Envoy of Chaos: Big killer/Finisher to combine with BLS & Gaia
1x Beginning Knight: For hard situations to deal with tough monsters

Spells: 6
3x Super Soldier Synthesis
3x Gateway of Chaos: Ritual and Gaia searcher plus works great with the discarding mechanism of the deck

Extra deck:
Some rank 4 monsters I have and usually use. Nothing special.

Gameplay:
Your ideal 1st turn is to summon BLS with Djinn and turn him to a Super Soldier. Other good opens (based on opponent) may include XYZ summon using special summoned Gaia+level 4 monster and make Steelswarm Roach (vs TD, Stardust) or Abyss Dweller (vs Blue-Eyes). Try to maximize the discarding mechanism of the field (Thunder Dragons, Gaia, Ritual Spell).
Keep in mind this is still a fun deck and not a top tier deck. It can brick and has all the negatives of ritual decks. However, in most duels just BLS can be more than enough to guarantee a sure win. Moreover, is easy to use and extremely fun. After some duels you can get used to it.
Based on my experience in Ranked Duels in this meta:
The easiest duels: Harpie, Water, Onomat
The hardest duels: BEWD, FK, TD

Well, 2 is ideal since you need it to either draw it or combine it with gaia. If you check carefully you will see that all key cards come in "5s" for balance:
Ritual spell: 2 sonic bird+3 ritual spell
Ritual monster: 2 bls+3 field
Ritual materials: 3 td+2 djinn

However, you can replace bls with manju or gishi chain.

this is maybe better example of this deck:
1)BLS*2 + gateway to chaos*3 ---> "ritual monster"
2)sonic bird*2 + super soldier synthethis*3 ---> "ritual spell"
3)BK*2 + ETK*2 , sphere kuriboh*3 + charging gaia fierce knight*1 ---> "dark/light ritual pair"
4)chaos sorcerer*1(can also trigger the twin knights effect) ---> "secondary beater"
5)treacherous traphole*1(very efective here instead of a difficult condition counter trap) ---> "wining gift"

This build is just bad. It was just a promotion for a terrible skill.
Without backrow removal 9/10 times bls will be just hit by karma cut, flood traphole, providence, balista, canadia etc etc since in this meta every deck is like 40% traps.
Imo bls works only as an otk deck. 3 cc, 2 giant trunade and skill master of rites are the only viable option. You either win or loose in 2nd turn.

well I think everyone agree about using "master of rites" skill for this build but "3 CC, 2 GT" is so much for a material consumer ritual maybe changes below will make the suggested build more ideal:

"galaxy cyclone*2" instead of "sphere kuriboh*2"
"giant turnade*1" instead of "chaos sorcerer"

I don't see a BLS deck being good ever, even with pre-preparation of rites the deck would brick hard.

Too many support cards you could use too. One thing i dislike about DL is we are limited to 20 and not the usual 40. I wish some of these cards was in the Tag Force series when they came out

You do actually believe a 40 card format will make an already incosistent deck more powerfull?

Honestly they should just give us super soldier and call it a day.. make it limited (1) and just give us the darn card..

Or

fix the skill and take away the kuriboh requirement..
Honestly I’d prefer just giving us the card and making it limited (1)

No, it is just bad. Avoid using it at any cost.
The worst thing about BLS deck is that you cant properly use it with Yami Yugi to see the nice special summoning video... you have either to use he deck with Pegasus or Alexis due to their superior ritual skills... So sad. I believe yugi deserves a ritual skill. After all he has 2 ritual boss monsters in anime, this one and magician of black chaos...
