How to use

Special summon XYZ machines

Union monsters in this deck, like Y-Dragon Head and Z-Metal Tank, can easily be special summoned, use cards to help you get them on the field to use as fusion materials.

Attach union monsters

Equipping union monsters is a big part of this deck's strategy. The monster that is equipped with a union monster gains protection from being destroyed, by destroying the union monster instead, and also gains additional effects based on the union monster equipped. Use Roll Out! to equip a union monster from your graveyard to an appropriate monster on the field.(Take note that a monster can only equip one union monster at a time.)

Boost attack

The monsters in this deck don't offer much in terms of attack, even the fusion monsters have comparatively low attack. To make up for this we need to use attack boosting cards.

  • Machine Assembly Line boost all machine-type monsters by 200 attack and can be use as revival for machine-type monsters. Which is perfect since this deck mostly consists of low leveled machine-types.
  • Y-Dragon Head and Z-Metal Tank also boosts the attack of the monster they are equipped to.

Contact Fusion

Contact fusion is this deck's specialty, by removing materials on your side of the field from play you can fusion summon without using polymerization.

  • XY-Dragon Cannon destroys a face-up spell/trap card at the cost of discarding one card.
  • XZ-Tank Cannon destroys a face-down spell/trap card at the cost of discarding one card.
  • YZ-Tank Dragon tank destroys a face-down monster card at the cost of discarding one card.
  • XYZ-Dragon Cannon is your strongest monster and can destroy any card at the cost of discarding one card.

Ultimate XYZ dragon CANNON DECK. use bandit kieth and use the 7 completed skill for 2 extra 7 completed cards. 2 xz tank cannon and dint forget those 3 man eater bugs. ALWAYS run man eater bug. do this and you will be an xyz expert like me.

i use a similar deck only i dont have mecha support, roll out, gravity blaster, pulse mines, and draining shield and that one trap card i cant seem to name in my deck owo i added a jinzo, 7 completed, powerful rebirth or time machine at times, mirror wall, windstorm of etaqua, and floodgate traphole as well as the balance skill rather than sleight of hand uwu
My current list. I'd play mirror walls instead of super rush and disruption if I had it. Most unsure on heavy mech support armor, might be better with something like powerful rebirth. Have considered trying more x, y, z and only 1 of v and w. Perhaps even with 3 dog tags, but at that point it's probably better with an all in vwxyz fusion deck.

OLD recipe FYR. its not great, not a machine theme but offensive instead of stalling.
Ties to the brethren is pretty cool with this deck

It would be sooooo good if we had ties of the brethren and negate attack to summon those juicy fusions
How good is this deck? Seriously

this deck is outdated since vwxyz farm event. all you need is 2 fusion tag and 1 effect monster; that can special summon another monster when it is targeted by spell card.
The above decklist needs an update now that we have B-Buster Drake and that Trap card in the Card Trader.

Honestly I don't think Peacekeeper is that needed.
Konami should release this

Too op tho
Spell/Trap zones are a precious, limited resource in an XYZ deck and there's no easy way of getting rid of Frontline Base without throwing off your deck's balance. I usually just use this pattern:
- Set Y or Z and Roll Out on first turn
- Bring out X or Y and activate Roll Out on second turn
- Summon the first combination you possibly can, then recover the banished monsters with Union Scramble when you get the third piece
I have three XYZ Dragon Cannons (was aiming for 3x angmarl, shinato and hamstrat). And bringing out more than one copy with Union Scramble is a lot of fun lol
Use Luminois Spark instead of Machine Assembly Line to free up Spell/Trap card space for Union purposes.

I usually run just one Luminous Spark and one Machine Assembly Line while I run 3 Frontline Bases. Having extra Continuous spells is good ammo for the fusions and with Roll Out!, if I sent B-Buster Drake as ammo for an effect, I can chain it to bring Drake back as a Spell protection shield
What to change:
Max out Extra Deck
-2 Peace
+2 B-Buster Drake

I recommend running 3 Buster Drakes and at least two Roll Out! and two Union Scrambles. I've gotten so many swarming OTKs from those two cards alone. Plus Union Scramble's graveyard effect can replenish any XYZ fusions' effects for one extra measure
Man, wish we had ABC instead. Banishing stuff is way better.

ABC is a copy of XYZ and would be completely broken. It's a poorly balanced archetype and I'm glad this format is still fairly old school.

No way dude, then that will cause a new Cyber Angel 2.0 but better. ABC Dragon is too powerful for this format.
