Hazy Flame: deck recipe

Duel Links Top Story
Yami Marik event part 2 is live now!
update 06/12/2017

Overview

Another deck that gained support with the addition of the latest box is the Hazy Flame archetype. Even though there were four new Hazy cards added; Hazy Glory, Hazy Flame Mantikor, Hazy Flame Peryton and Hazy Flame Cerbereus, only that last one is really useful in Hazy Flame decks.

Hazy Flame decks have a few strengths; they can boost the attack of one monster extremely high through the effect of Beast Rising, with Hazy Flame Sphynx’s effect you can continue to swarm your field and one of the most important effects is that Hazy Flame monsters cannot be targeted by your opponent’s card effects, making it immune to the likes of Enemy Controller/Tribute to the Doomed (but not immune to the effect of Cyber Angel Dakini/Floodgate Trap Hole as they do not target).

How to use

Hazy Flame Sphynx

The MVP of this deck is of course Hazy Flame Sphynx. Its effect allows you to guess what type of card is on top of your deck (spell/trap/monster) and then send it to the graveyard. If you call correctly what type it was you can special summon 1 Fire type monster from your hand or graveyard.

Normally this effect would be pretty bad because it’s not consistent, however thanks to the skills Aroma Strategy and Destiny Draw available in Duel Links this is an amazing effect as you can actually know what card is on top. Obviously the effect of Aroma Strategy is pretty straight forward; at any time during the duel you’ll see the top card of your deck.

However some of you might not know how Destiny Draw will help you tell what card is on top of your deck. Well you probably know that if you take 2000 or more damage you can pick whatever card you want from your deck and put it on top (so that you’ll draw it during your next Draw Phase), but what you might not know is that your deck won’t be shuffled when you do so, meaning you can write down each card in order (on a piece of paper), that way you can keep track of what card will be on top next. Keep in mind that if you shuffle your deck at any point afterwards (for example through the effect of Caninetaur) you’ll no longer know what order the cards are in.

Hazy Flame Cerbereus

There are multiple reasons this card is good in Hazy Flame decks. For starters if you don’t have any low level monsters in your hand and no Soul Exchange, you can normal summon this monster without a tribute (but its original attack will only be 1000), this way it can absorb a hit, and once it’s destroyed you can search a Hazy card from your deck (you’ll want to choose a Hazy Flame Sphynx in most situations). This will be your main target to summon through the effect of Hazy Flame Sphynx. Keep in mind if this card was normal summoned without tributing, its original attack becomes 1000, meaning that if you banish it with the effect of Beast Rising, the other monster will only gain 1000 attack (and not 2000).

Flame Tiger

Most decks only run 1-2 copies of this card because most of the time you don’t actually want to draw it. You’ll want to send this card to the graveyard (either with Caninetaur or Hazy Flame Sphynx) so that you can special summon it during your Draw Phase (if your next draw would be useless) that way you can tribute it to summon Hazy Flame Sphynx, and then you can even bring it back thanks to Hazy Flame Sphynx’s effect.

It’s also a great target to banish with Beast Rising’s effect since it has a respectable 1800 attack.

Caninetaur

Caninetaur and Hazy Flame Cerbereus work great together. Caninetaur helps you get Cerbereus in the graveyard (to special summon it later on with 2000 attack) and when you do, its attack goes up to 2100.

Beast Rising

Insanely good card in a Hazy Flame deck because of all the monsters you can send to the graveyard and bring back to the field to then banish for this card’s effect. Often your win condition will be to boost your Hazy Flame Sphynx to a very high attack, so that you are safe from Mirror Wall/Wall of Disruption. If you get a high enough attack on one of your monsters your opponent often won’t have anything to actually win the duel.

This card can be activated during the damage step, so if you attack into a Mirror Wall/Wall of Disruption you can banish the monster that was going to be destroyed to boost another monster, and since it uses the original attack of a monster it mitigates even more the effect of Wall of Disruption.

Soul Exchange

This card works both as monster removal and as a way to get out your Hazy Flame Sphynx faster. If you have access to three copies you might prefer running the version with 3x Hazy Flame Cerbereus and 2x Caninetaur.

Additional Notes

  • Don’t be scared of getting your Sphynx’s attack extremely high, your opponent cannot take control of your Sphynx through the effect of Enemy Controller, but do watch out for Amazoness Sword Woman in Burn decks.

  • If you use Forbidden Chalice on your 1000 attack Hazy Flame Cerbereus it will go up to 2400 attack, and once the effect of Forbidden Chalice wears off your Hazy Flame Cerbereus will stay at 2000 attack.

  • Some decks won’t have any way to attack over your Beast Rising boosted monsters, but keep in mind that only your attack is raised and not your defense, so cards like Pulse Mines/Windstorm of Etaqua/Curse of Anubis , that don’t target your Hazy Flame monsters, could lose you the duel.

Other useful cards


CardExplanation
The Big Cattle Drive
The Big Cattle Drive
A new UR ranked duel reward. Because all the monsters in this deck are Beasts or Beast-Warrior this card has great synergy with the deck, and because you can potentially swarm your field thanks to Hazy Flame Sphynx you could easily get a +1 or +2 from this card.
Hazy Glory
Hazy Glory
If you are missing copies of Soul Exchange you can replace it with this card. Although it is worse than Soul Exchange, because you need to wait a turn and because you don’t have the monster removal that Soul Exchange can offer.
Hazy Flame Peryton
Hazy Flame Peryton
Same use as Wall of Disruption, but works better than Wall of Disruption against Ancient Gear decks.
Windstorm of Etaqua
Windstorm of Etaqua
Just like Wall of Disruption, if you are missing copies of cards like Floodgate Trap Hole/Mirror Wall, you can replace them with these. They’ll protect your monsters and allow you to tribute them next turn for a Hazy Flame monster.
Curse of Anubis
Curse of Anubis
Just like Wall of Disruption, if you are missing copies of cards like Floodgate Trap Hole/Mirror Wall, you can replace them with these. They’ll protect your monsters and allow you to tribute them next turn for a Hazy Flame monster.
Forbidden Chalice
Forbidden Chalice
Tech card against the likes of Cyber Angels, Ninjas, Gladiator Beasts. Also can boost your Hazy Flame Cerbereus from 1000 attack to a permanent 2000 attack.
Wall of Disruption
Wall of Disruption
Good replacement if you are missing copies of Floodgate Trap Hole, or even if you just prefer this card over Mirror Wall.

The 3SD version is more OTK-happy and does better against stuff like Ninja. However, this version of the deck is control-heavy so it works better on the long run/against grind heavy decks like Weevil Burn or Destiny Draw Golem.

3sd hazy weakness is lack protection and low att. If you didn't manage to otk opponent asap, you will likely lose if you face deck with more than 2k att monster i.e ag, ninja, dino etc. Plus if you want to beat ninja or high att monster you need to have beast rising as early as possible and that doesn't happen to often.

This deck is tier 1, it's as strong as Ninjas. 3SD, Peryton, Beast Rising and the fact that all monsters are untargettable makes this deck so ridiculous.

One thing I want to add is three star demotion.

Lol. What a bad argument. That's like saying "ninjas are bad because you can brick with ninjas when you have 4 traps in your hand". Find a better argument

Yeah. The only problem with 3SD is guessing correctrly, that's why many idiots are using it with modded apk to always guess right. (N.B.: I didn't say EVERYBODY, I said MANY).

The attack of Hazy's aren't as high as Ninjas. That relies heavily on having Beast Rising in your backrow.

Or you could simply use a heavy monster count with Cattle Drive to draw into your Beast Rising copies...

Hazy deck with Beatdown skill is pretty sweet. The monsters are all 6* and you can summon two or three of them in a single turn for +600 or +900 attack. This tips the hazy manticore over 3000 for killing Blue Eyes more reliably than Beast Rising. A nice field spell like sorcerers spell wall helps too.

I prefer Beast Rising over Beatdown skill. Beast rising can give you a free room for summon more monster and stacking up atk for OTK. Beatdown is fascinating but you will most likely locked when you against stall/burn deck that runs 2/3 WoD and some annoying stall card

Damn!! This deck is super strong and fun, with the help from Peryton, thinning deck for consistency is a lot easier. Beside, you can farm Marik using this deck... This is such a godsend for F2P and new player like me :D

Sometimes you don't have to use 3sd like in match with burn deck. That's why no tribute monster is necessary in hazy deck. Soul exchange won't help you if opponent play rabbit/skystarray

Hazy Flame Monster effect- [This card can't be targeted by your opponent's card effect.]

[Spell] Enemy controller & [Monster] The Atmosphere shouldn't work on Hazy Flame?

maybe i don't understand the ruling of [hazy flame] card and i lost a duel with the above situation.

sry for bad english

Anything that says "target an opponent monster" won't work. Even atmosphere. I guess D-hero plasma can still do because he negates any effect. Forget e-con, man-eater bug, exiled force, you simply can't target hazys.

Forget Black Dragon Ninja too. That's why this deck is the first Ninja-Counter. It's not an easy win, but with a good first hand, they're done.

"Even though there were four new Hazy cards added; Hazy Glory, Hazy Flame Mantikor, Hazy Flame Peryton and Hazy Flame Cerbereus, only that last one is really useful in Hazy Flame decks."
Peryton it's the best of all, by far, what a hasty analysis this one.

I use a similar 3SD deck. Great deck so far. Still to soon to compare it to the current Meta, but I guess it's somewhere in the GB-Tier.

CA decks are easy to counter... The problem is that you can't counter them, and counter everything else. I can build an anti-ritual deck just for fun and crush you all in Legend ;)

What if you run Mausoleum with Supremacy Berry plus Half Counters? Wouldn't that be a better budget option? Running 3 Soul Exchanges plus 3 Floodgates? That's madness and begging for p2w.

I agree with 3SD for this too. Then you can stack a good defensive backrow

And same can be said for Soul Exchange. If you don't have any turn 1 you'll brick hard against a OTK deck
