Gusto Synchro: deck recipe

Duel Links Breaking News
New pack: Aerial Assault
update 28/01/2019

Overview

“Gusto” is an archetype of WIND monsters that was originally introduced in Visions of Ice back in May 2018 and that is yet to see any competitive play. One of the main things this archetype was previously lacking was a good Extra Deck to complement the various Special Summoning effects and this exactly what the new Mini BOX Tornado of Phantoms is seemingly trying to provide.

How to Use

Junk Synchron

When Normal Summoned, this Level 3 Tuner allows you Special Summon a Level 2 or lower monster from your Graveyard. Thanks to What Grows in the Graveyard, you will begin the Duel with a copy of Dark Verger already there, so Junk Synchron will instantly give you access to a Level 5 Synchro (Daigusto Gulldos or Armades, Keeper of Boundaries).

Gusto Gulldo & Winda, Priestess of Gusto

When Gusto Gulldo is sent from the field to the Graveyard, it allows you to Special Summon a Level 2 or lower “Gusto” monster from your Deck.

You can Set Gusto Gulldo on Turn 1, wait for your opponent to destroy it with a Koa'ki Meiru Maximus, Vampire Kingdom or simply by battle and then Special Summon Winda, Priestess of Gusto from your Deck in Defense Position. When Winda is destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard, it allows you to Special Summon a “Gusto” Tuner from your Deck (Gusto Gulldo).

Neither Gusto Gulldo nor Winda has limitations when it comes to how many their effects can be activated during the same turn: use this opportunity to set up your Graveyard for Daigusto Gulldos and thin your Deck at the same time.

Keep in mind that, if you use Gusto Gulldo as Synchro Material, its effect will miss the timing because it’s optional (“When...you can…”).

The Extra Deck

When it attacks or is attacked, Armades prevents your opponent from activating cards or effects until the end of the Damage Step. This Level 5 is able to nullify popular Battle Traps such as Drowning Mirror Force and Wall of Disruption together with the floating effects of cards like Silent Magician and Silent Swordsman.

Another Level 5 Synchro with a pretty powerful effect: once per turn, by shuffling two “Gusto” monsters from your Graveyard into your Main Deck, Daigusto Gulldos allows you to destroy a face-up monster your opponent controls, essentially giving you a way to deal with high ATK monsters such as Koa'ki Meiru Maximus and Cosmo Brain while also preventing you from decking out before your opponent.

You can Summon Junk Destroyer by using Junk Synchron and Armades, Keeper of Boundaries or Daigusto Gulldos. When Synchron Summoned, Junk Destroyer allows you to destroy a number of cards on the field equal to the number of non-Tuner monsters used to Summon it. Junk Destroyer’s effect doesn’t require you to have any particular monsters in the Graveyard and it activates on Summon, which means your opponent won’t be able to use Floodgate Trap Hole or Paleozoic Canadia to prevent it.

Since Pilica, Descendant of Gusto’s effect requires some prior setup and also pretty much forces you to run a Level 2 Tuner, Junk Synchron + What Grows in the Graveyard is the easiest way to Summoning Daigusto Gulldos.

Weaknesses

  • Without Gusto Gulldo, you will likely be completely open to an OTK from Koa'ki Meiru on Turn 2. Your backrow can also be negated by Koa'ki Meiru Sandman, which is why we would advise running Sphere Kuriboh or even Kuriboh.
  • Koa'ki Meiru Ice together with Koa'ki Meiru Maximus can get through the Gusto Gulldo + Winda, Priestess of Gulldo combination.
  • There are a lot of monsters you can’t get over naturally with anything in your deck: Wall of Disruption is highly advised to solve this issue. We are also running Enemy Controller in the Example Deck to take advantage of the various Special Summoning effects.

Vallecula and other gamea writers, can you just copy duellinksmeta and gamea japan decks, so I don't have to deal with your meme decks and also saves me time going on all three site down to only here, also I like it here because I can be an anonymous and I write anything I want to. If there's plagiarism or copyright issues, I'll leave you to deal with them. Thanks.

This deck profile is called 'Gusto Synchro'. I can see why somebody brought up the fact this deck build many relies on JunK Synchron + What Grows In The Graveyard instead of the Gusto archetypes. The deck profiles name is misleading. At the same Gusto's are booty and dont really have much to work on.

j/k with the one hour comment, but I can see people's point here, it's kinda hard to call this a Gusto deck when the Gusto cards feels like an afterthought.

On the other hand, literally more than half of the monsters lineup are Gusto monsters. (Sphere Kuri doesn't count since it's a handtrap, it will never hit the field).

So you can't really say it's not a Gusto deck either.

However, I think the staff should try reducing the generic staples a bit to include more of the archetype's cards and test it.

I mean, I've been playing my deck with just 1 Hallucigenia 1 Canadia 1 Floodgate and 1 WoD as my Traps, and I'm doing fine.

clearly some of you people haven't played gustos in the tcg judging by your deck lists. i know dl and the tcg are 2 different games basically but the fundamentals of the deck stays the same.

reeze should never be played more than at 1
gulldo, egul and winda are easy 3 ofs
pilica should be at 2 at the least
daigusto gulldos should be played at 2
psychic nightmare should be played at 1
stardust assault warrior is a good choice
armades is also a great choice
contact should be played at 2-3 copies
dont use the gusto traps
dont use thunbolt
dont use kamui or squirro or griffin or windaar or musto. caam is good though

seeing that gustos are my favorite archetype in yugioh by far, it hurts to see people not playing them correctly

these brainless meta players are only using what the youtubers told them to follow, but yeah thank you my friend for these tips, i was having problems with the archtype traps so skiped to spell Psychokinesis works very well with the Jack Atlas skill that need 2000 or less in life points

I agree most of what you said :) it's my favourite archetype too, by far ! But I tried some "fun" or "original" builds in Duel Links to try to express full potential of some gustos like griffin and squirro (with nephtys strategy) ;)

I'm currently playing this deck and it has quite a nice defense factor even against koa'ki meiru. They would have to hit your monsters with Maximus' effect, which they often do not, because they focus on the backrow first. So they defeat your face down Eagle and you keep summoning guys to avoid damage. Then you synchro summon and can actually win the duel with econ or some other tech.

Playmaker Duel Links and Duel Links meta have very good versions of this deck. Ya, they are good at avoiding damage so you are likely to survive some OTKs.

funny, because DLM brought me here. Gusto is quite competitive if you have the right cards, I've seen some people defeating top tier with it while using Endless Trap Hell.

Dkayed actually build a pretty decent deck around the Gusto archetype and if I remember correctly it wasn't very expensive.
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.

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.

Opponent having 0 card in hand rarely happens, though.

I can't seem to be able to activate Daigusto Gulldos's effect the turn after it was summoned even though I have the resources in my grave. Am I missing something?

Maybe your opponent's monster have an effect that prevents them from being targeted by effect, or....did you try to target a face-down one? Daigusto Gulldos can only target face-up monster.

No but it keeps happening it's really weird it doesn't happen every game but quite often

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

There's a Gusto Kog deck at Duel Links Meta.
It is competitive, but not in the first week of the season.
