Gusto Synchro: deck recipe

Overview

The “Gusto” archetype has recently received a refreshing breeze of new support cards with the release of 5D’s, but it’s pretty clear that it’s still missing some key components.

This deck utilizes Fire King Island to trigger some of the low Level “Gusto” monsters effects and Special Summon the high Level ones from the Deck; the concept behind the deck is not bad, but there aren’t exactly that many options when it comes to the Extra Deck.

How to Use

Fire King Island & Fire King Avatar Yaksha

Once per turn, you can destroy a monster in your hand or a monster you control to add a “Fire King” monster from your Deck to your hand; Fire King Island is used to trigger Gusto Squirro and Gusto Griffin’s effects and Special Summon either Reeze, Whirlwind of Gusto or Windaar, Sage of Gusto, the high Level “Gusto” monsters, from your Deck.

Once the Level 5 Reeze or the Level 6 Windaar are on the field, you can Normal Summon Gusto Falco or Gusto Squirro, the two Level 2 Tuners, and use them as Synchro Materials for Daigusto Eguls or Stardust Dragon.

Similarly to Fire King Island, Fire King Avatar Yaksha can be used to trigger Gusto Squirro and Gusto Griffin’s effects, but it has to be destroyed and sent to the Graveyard first.

You need to have at least one copy of Yaksha in your Deck in order to activate Fire King Island’s first effect.

Reeze, Whirlwind of Gusto & Windaar, Sage of Gusto

Once per turn, Reeze, Whirlwind of Gusto can switch control of one monster your opponent controls and a face-up “Gusto” you control by returning a card in your hand to the bottom of the Deck; you can target Reeze with this effect to take control of one of your monster and also put one of your high Level monsters back into the Deck, if you drew it.

Windaar, Sage of Gusto’s effect allows you to Special Summon a Level 3 or lower “Gusto” monster from your Graveyard, but it has to destroy an opponent’s monster by battle and send it to the Graveyard first.

Cosmic Cyclone

This Quick-Play Spell is used to get rid of the opponent’s backrow, particularly cards like Amazoness Onslaught that would otherwise give this deck trouble; the cost paid to activate Cosmic Cyclone also allows you to activate Quick as the WIND right away and boost your monsters’ ATK.

Treacherous Trap Hole

Since the deck runs no other Trap Cards, Treacherous can be used freely. You can target and destroy two monsters on the opponent’s side of the field or target just one and Gusto Squirro to get trigger its effect.

Stardust Dragon

Stardust Dragon can negate the effect of cards like Treacherous Trap Hole or Vampire Kingdom that would destroy something on the field.

You can use Windaar and either Gusto Squirro or Gusto Falco to Special Summon this monster.
NOTE: If Gusto Falco is used as Synchro Material, its effect will miss timing and you will not be able to Special Summon a monster from your Deck.

Daigusto Eguls

Once per turn, Daigusto Eguls can destroy a face-down card your opponent controls—it’s not the best effect in world for what is supposed to be the main monster of the deck, but at least it can get rid of the opponent's backrow or any monster they decided to set.

You can use Reeze and either of the two Level 2 Tuner monsters of the deck to Special Summon this monster.

Gravity Warrior

Gravity Warrior gains 300 ATK for each monster the opponent controls when he is Synchro Summoned, meaning he can reach up to 3000 ATK; its second effect can force an opponent’s Defense Position monster to attack, so it might be useful against Fur Hires when the opponent tries to use Wiz, Sage Fur Hire as a wall for stalling.

You can use Gusto Squirro or Gusto Falco and Fire King Avatar Yaksha to Special Summon this monster.

This Skill essentially boosts the ATK of your monsters by 500, making Eguls able to get over a Masked HERO Anki or a Defense Position Wiz, Sage Fur Hire.

Cyber Style
Can be used each time your Life Points are at 3000 or below. Play 1 "Proto-Cyber Dragon" on from outside of your Deck for every 1000 Life Points below 4000. This skill can nly be used once per Duel.

Cyberstyle has synergy with Cosmic Cyclone; you can use Proto-Cyber Dragon to Tribute Summon Reeze or Windaar.

Weaknesses

Daigusto Eguls is the only Synchro monster the archetype has to offer and, while it has at least enough ATK to get over a Dyna, Hero Fur Hire, its effect is still pretty underwhelming.

Both Wiz, Sage Fur Hire and Silent Magician can prevent you from activating Fire King Island while Cosmic Cyclone, Galaxy Cyclone, Vampire Kingdom and Donpa, Marksman Fur Hire can just get rid of it, causing you to lose the entire board.

The deck is extremely passive during the opponent’s turn; the only card that can interact with the opponent during their turn is Treacherous Trap Hole.

GameA either doesn't know how to build decks, or purposely makes them worse to get players to work more on their own with a basic idea. I don't know which answer to believe anymore.

It's an Example Deck, nobody is telling you to build exactly like this. I thought Gusto had some decent synergy with Fire King Island, so I tested it and it worked.
You can go for a standard build or even one that centers around Psychic support-it's really up to you.

I think this deck is pretty much playable right now, guess the ban of onslaught helped many decks to come back to competition.

Does Griffin work with transcendent crystals?

No, skills cannot trigger any card effect
Discarders
This formation with Yaksha is good and consistent. But I prefer to use only Griffin's effect with discarders like Wonder Ballon, Tirbute of the Doomed or Dark Core instead o FK Island. With island you are vulnerable, if your opp shoots your field, Bam, you lost all your synchro monsters or have to sacrifice Stardust and leave your field wide open.

Also, Ultimate Providence is good with Griffin.

Gusto Synchro is actually very decent if you play it with Kamui and the Squirrel ! However, I dunno why they put fire king.

Cool :]]]

The fire king idea sucks.

Tried with fireking it was bad. 3 wonder balloon and 3 dark dealing for discarding Griffin and use its effect. You can easily synchro summon 8* or 6* on first turn.

Are you seriously suggesting to run Wonder Ballons? At least Fire King Island triggers both Falco and Squirro, it's more consistent.

The Tricky works really good in this deck too.

3 DWD is better.

Not good Reply
DWD isn't good because it gave your opponent some advantage as well. In the moment a lot of decks takes profit of discarding.
For me, DWD is only good when u use it when your opponent has no cards in hand.
