How to Play

Beater

Gouki Riscorpio
Gouki Riscorpio
EARTH Warrior ★5
ATK 2300 / DEF 0
Flames of the Heart [SR]
If you control no monsters, or all monsters you control are "Gouki" monsters, you can Normal Summon this card without Tributing. If this card is sent from the field to the GY: You can add 1 "Gouki" card from your Deck to your hand, except "Gouki Riscorpio". You can only use this effect of "Gouki Riscorpio" once per turn.
Gouki Suprex
Gouki Suprex
EARTH Warrior ★4
ATK 1800 / DEF 0
Flames of the Heart [UR]
When this card is Normal Summoned: You can Special Summon 1 "Gouki" monster from your hand. If this card is sent from the field to the GY: You can add 1 "Gouki" card from your Deck to your hand, except "Gouki Suprex". You can only use this effect of "Gouki Suprex" once per turn.
Gouki Twistcobra
Gouki Twistcobra
EARTH Warrior ★3
ATK 1600 / DEF 0
Flames of the Heart [SR]
(Quick Effect): You can Tribute 1 "Gouki" monster, then target 1 "Gouki" monster you control; it gains ATK equal to the original ATK of the Tributed monster until the end of this turn. If this card is sent from the field to the GY: You can add 1 "Gouki" card from your Deck to your hand, except "Gouki Twistcobra". You can only use each effect of "Gouki Twistcobra" once per turn.

Most of the Gouki monsters are used as beaters. Normal Summon Suprex to swarm the field. Riscorpio can be Normal Summoned without tribute if you control a Gouki monster, but it is quicker to Special Summon him with Suprex.

Twistcobra is a good monster to Special Summon with Suprex to prepare its effect. Twistcobra can tribute Suprex to boost his own ATK above most monsters. As a quick effect this can be done during your opponent's turn to disrupt an opponent's attack, and can also be done to make use of a Gouki targeted by your opponent's effect. Twistcobra's effect can be used to trigger Goukis' search effect, so it can be worth keeping him on the field.

Hand Effect

Gouki Iron Claw
Gouki Iron Claw
EARTH Warrior ★2
ATK 1000 / DEF 0
Flames of the Heart [R]
During the Damage Step, when your "Gouki" monster battles an opponent's monster (Quick Effect): You can send this card from your hand to the GY; until the end of this turn, your monster gains 500 ATK, and if it does, it is unaffected by your opponent's card effects. If this card is sent from the field to the GY: You can add 1 "Gouki" card from your Deck to your hand, except "Gouki Iron Claw". You can only use each effect of "Gouki Iron Claw" once per turn.

Gouki Iron Claw is different from other Gouki because you do not want him on the field, instead you want to keep him in your hand where he can make use of his effect. The ATK boost is good for attacking over slightly stronger monsters, but the effect immunity is much more useful because it allows you to ignore battle traps such as Sea Stealth Attack.

Ballista Squad

Ballista Squad
Ballista Squad
Normal Trap
Fortress of Gears [UR]
Tribute 1 monster, then target 1 card your opponent controls; destroy it.

Ballista Squad removes an opponent's card from the field while also activating your Gouki search effect. Use a Gouki about to be removed by your opponent's effect as tribute to waste their removal. Ballista Squad is also one of the ways this Gouki deck can deal with your opponent's backrow.

Control Effects

Necrovalley
Necrovalley
Field Spell
Dark Dimension [UR]
All "Gravekeeper's" monsters gain 500 ATK and DEF. Cards in the Graveyard cannot be banished. Negate any card effect that would move a card in the Graveyard to a different place. Negate any card effect that changes Types or Attributes in the Graveyard.

This Gouki deck has a very straightforward beatdown play style. To compliment this play style we also use control cards that hinder your opponent from using their effects.
This deck doesn't interact with the graveyard in any way, so Necrovalley will only serve to prevent your opponent from interacting with their graveyard.
Fiendish Chain shuts down monster effects which helps deal with your opponent's combo starter and boss monster. It also prevents your opponent's monster from attacking if you want to use Fiendish Chain as a battle trap.
This Gouki deck is also very susceptible to Fiendish Chain, but that can be dealt with by Cosmic Cyclone and Ballista Squad.

Tuner

Psychic Wheeleder
Psychic Wheeleder
EARTH Psychic ★3
ATK 600 / DEF 0
Dimension of the Wizards [UR]
If you control a Level 3 monster other than "Psychic Wheeleder", you can Special Summon this card (from your hand) in Defense Position. You can only Special Summon "Psychic Wheeleder" once per turn this way. If this card is sent to the GY as Synchro Material: You can target 1 monster on the field with less ATK than the Synchro Monster that used this card as material; destroy it. You can only use this effect of "Psychic Wheeleder" once per turn.

Psychic Wheeleder is a great Tuner to use in a synchro variant of Gouki decks. You can Special Summon Wheeleder from your hand by just controlling Twistcobra and make level-6 Synchros. Normal Summon Suprex and use his effect to Special Summon Twistcobra, then Special Summon Wheeleder with its own effect and now you have access to level-6 and level-7 Synchro plays. Occasionally you can pair Wheeleder with Riscorpio to access the wide pool of level-8 Synchros, but generally your Extra Deck should contain more level-6 and 7 Synchros.

As a bonus, using Wheeleder and a Gouki monster as synchro material lets you activate the Gouki search effect and Wheeleder's removal effect. Overall netting you great card advantage.

Extra Deck

Scrap Dragon
Scrap Dragon
EARTH Dragon ★8
ATK 2800 / DEF 2000
Valhalla Calling [UR]
1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
Once per turn: You can target 1 card you control and 1 card your opponent controls; destroy them. When this card is destroyed by your opponent's card (either by battle or by card effect) and sent to the Graveyard: Target 1 non-Synchro "Scrap" monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon that target.

When you do summon a level-8 monster, Scrap Dragon is a good choice. If you use one of your Gouki monsters for its removal effect, you essentially get to destroy an opponent's card while also getting a search effect.

Naturia Barkion
Naturia Barkion
EARTH Dragon ★6
ATK 2500 / DEF 1800
Selection Box Vol. 03 [UR]
1 EARTH Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner EARTH monsters
During either player's turn, when a Trap Card is activated: You can banish 2 cards from your Graveyard; negate the activation, and if you do, destroy it. This card must be face-up on the field to activate and to resolve this effect.

Because of your Gouki monsters' and Psychic Wheeleder's attribute, you get access to the Naturia Synchros for negation effects. Since you do not interact with your graveyard, Naturia Barkion is a good way to negate your opponent's Trap cards. Additionally, being a level-6 Synchro monster it can easily be made with Twistcobra and a Special Summoned Wheeleder. However, because of his effect cost he will not be useful while Necrovalley is on the field.

Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier
Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier
WATER Dragon ★6
ATK 2300 / DEF 1400
Aerial Assault [UR]
1 Tuner + 1+ non-Tuner monsters
You can discard any number of cards to the GY, then target the same number of cards your opponent controls; return those cards to the hand. You can only use this effect of "Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier" once per turn.

Brionac is a generic level-6 monster you can go into for a removal effect. Using Brionac's removal can become costly when trying to get rid of multiple cards so only use it on your opponent's boss monsters and Extra Deck monsters, and sometimes on some of their backrow.

HTS Psyhemuth
HTS Psyhemuth
EARTH Psychic ★6
ATK 2400 / DEF 1800
Valhalla Calling [SR]
1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
After damage calculation, when this card battles an opponent's monster: You can banish that monster, also banish this card.

A boss monster that cannot be targeted cannot be removed by Brionac. In this case you can summon Psyhemuth to do the removing, but this will also weaken your field presence.

Samurai Destroyer
Samurai Destroyer
EARTH Machine ★7
ATK 2600 / DEF 1400
Dark Dimension [R]
1 Tuner + 1+ non-Tuner monsters
If this card battles an opponent's monster, your opponent cannot activate cards or effects until the end of the Damage Step, also that opponent's monster has its effects negated during the Battle Phase only. If this face-up card in its owner's control leaves the field because of an opponent's card effect: You can target 1 Machine monster in your GY; Special Summon it.

Any deck that can easily make level-7 Synchros should toolbox Black Rose Dragon. The ideal time to summon Black Rose Dragon when your opponent has a much greater field presence over you. If you want a level-7 beater, Samurai Destroyer is arguably the best. It prevents your opponent from activating effects when it battles, shutting down battle traps. Additionally, Samurai Destroyer offers some utility by turning off the battled monster's floating effects.

Other Useful Cards

CardExplanation
Silent Swordsman
Silent Swordsman
All Gouki monsters are Warriors so you can use any of them as tribute to summon Silent Swordsman. This gives you a monster capable of disrupting your opponent's key Spell cards, while also activating the tributed Gouki's search effect. However Silent Swordsman does start with a pretty low base stat so you might need to add Silent Sword Slash.
Enemy Controller
Enemy Controller
Tribute your Gouki to take control of an opponent's monster. You can then use the tributed Gouki's search effect to get Bearhug or Riscorpio, and Tributed Summon them using the monster you took so that it does not go back to your opponent.
Super Team Buddy Force Unite!
Super Team Buddy Force Unite!
This is a great revival card for any deck with monsters of a single type. You essentially get to revive a monster for free as long as it is not a duplicate of the one you targeted. This card has no restriction on the level of monster you revive so you can use it to put Riscorpio on the field. And putting any Gouki on the field sets you up to use Twistcobra's effect. It even replenishes itself when destroyed.

You know a deck is trash when it has to really on mostly UR trap/spell cards to stay relevant. Glad I passed on this new mini box.

You do realize that most, if not all, of the meta decks out there rely on SR/UR cards, right? I've yet to see one that utilizes only rares and commons.

This.

No deck can be in the meta playing only N and R rarity cards.

That is not what he means. Of course all decks rely on UR and SR cards, but he complains that this decks uses a lot of UR and SR staples instead of archetype cards. So he would say that DM is generally good (barely and UR/SR staples) while this Gouki is bad (as it relies on UR/SR staples instead of the Gouki cards)

I mean, what else it can do. Many deck that don't run many staples backrow like Dark Magician, Crystron, Blackwing and Heroes already have many support for them. Even some BEWD deck now have 4-5 trap in their deck. Ask Konami for support and it will play much less backrow then now.

Gouki doesn't care about the Graveyard, so Necrovalley only badly affect the opponent.
