How to use

Deck search

Senju of the Thousand HandsSonic BirdGateway to Chaos

Search your deck for Black Luster Soldier and Super Soldier Synthesis.

Summoning Black Luster Soldier

Black Luster SoldierWild Tornado

With 3000 attack almost nothing can overpower Black Luster Soldier, so your goal would be to summon him to use as a beater. It would be best to clear the field of any spell/traps if possible before summoning Black Luster Soldier, and always use Djinn Disserere of Rituals as cost when summoning him to make him immune to trap cards like Mirror Wall and Windstorm of Etaqua.
Instead of using the usual Black Luster Ritual that requires monsters from hand or field, we will be using Super Soldier Synthesis which sends 1 card from hand and 1 card from deck to the grave as cost, with this we will not lose too many cards just to summon one monster. In addition Black Luster Soldier can be ritual summoned from the grave when using Super Soldier Synthesis.
With all the advantages of using Super Soldier Synthesis, it does have it's limitations. Super Soldier Synthesis has strict rules for it's cost, you must send 1 monster from hand and 1 monster from deck and they must be 1 light and 1 dark monster. Keep this in mind when building your deck to maximize your efficiency in ritual summoning.

Summon with 3SD

StormWild Tornado

Use Three-Star Demotion to turn your level seven monsters to level four monster for one turn by sacrificing 3000 life points.

Storm Wild Tornado

StormWild Tornado

Set Wild Tornado then use Storm to destroy it. This will trigger the effect of Wild Tornado to destroy a face up card while using Storm to destroy opponent's spell/trap, allowing you a chance to OTK your opponent.

I want to go crazy and add another bls and portal + bacon saver and Idaten (dont know if works) or what tech could I add? Thnks ppl
Well I use bls and bewd combo I’ll use bewd as tribute to get bls out then dragons rebirth to get bewd back that’s two 3k monsters out then the rest of my deck is high atk lvl 4s mostly dragon tho and I run 3 horns to boost atk of my lvl 4s if things go wrong but with bandits new hand skill it’s easy I always have bewd or bls out on first turn gateway to chaos is a must and use 2 Swift Geias I’m adding a few tweaks but so far this deck is boss it’s crazy how fast u can demolish ppl with it
Here is my new BLS deck. It can make legend no problem in the current meta. Any suggestions would be appreciated. The 2 riryoku work good but they're just holding the place for super soldier shield. Djinn is a huge focus in the deck. Not sure what id do to reduce it to 20 cards. Runs extra fast when you're dealt gateway.
What do u think of this beauty

Works pretty good in platinum but I need some advice to create a little more consistency. Basically u use fiend farewell to send the pigs to the graveyard to build strong easy tribute fodder and Gaia is basically there cuz u can search him and easy tribute with 1 pig. Been testing riryoku field to block econ and new monster removal cards but unsure about it

Deck is pretty good but relinquished has to go. I built a better one with BLS only. Will post it after I work out the balancing. Hopefully super soldier shield comes out in the next 200 box and djinn demolisher of rituals would pair great with thunder dragon and supersoldier synthesis. If they bring him out.
I'm working on grinding out a BLS deck but my main issue is what do u do about mirror wall. How do u get around it. Do u have to run it with storm last gamble. And I feel trap jammer is sketchy cuz it's easy to remove for your opponent.

This is my current luster soldier deck. Any thoughts?

I see this deck weak against BEWD, Dark Paladin and Relin deck. And you need to relies on draw power instead on Destiny Draw. My suggestion is -1 BLS, -1 Darkflare, -1 BL Rite, -1 Gateway, -3 Apocralyph, then +2 storm, +1/2 Sonic Bird (though it's not dark/light, you still can use it via BL rite) and +3 Dekoichi (draw power and BLS fodder)

This is my bls deck hope u all like it
This deck is better run with last gamble. You can discard BLS for the cost and then summon it with Synthesis. Of course RNGesus can be problematic, but it's better than 3 star K-ncer
Nice i think this is the exact deck that gunsblazing used in his video

he has 2 bls and sanga but the core/recipe is the same i guess the changes are personal preferences
