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.

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

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.

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 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
