How to Play

Evigishki Ritual Monsters

Evigishki Soul Ogre
Evigishki Soul Ogre
WATER Aqua ★8
ATK 2800 / DEF 2800
Judgement Force [UR]
Cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. Must first be Ritual Summoned. You can Ritual Summon this card with any "Gishki" Ritual Spell Card. Once per turn: You can discard 1 "Gishki" monster to target 1 face-up card your opponent controls; shuffle that target into the Deck.

Soul Ogre is quite a powerful monster with his ATK stat and removal effect. Returning cards into the Deck is a pretty solid way of removing threats from the board and making sure they don't come back. Unfortunately, this effect targets which means it cannot deal with cards such as Invoked Cocytus.

Evigishki Mind Augus
Evigishki Mind Augus
WATER Aqua ★6
ATK 2500 / DEF 2000
Abyss Encounter [SR]
Cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. Must first be Ritual Summoned. You can Ritual Summon this card with any "Gishki" Ritual Spell Card. When this card is Ritual Summoned: Target up to 5 cards in any Graveyard(s); shuffle those targets to the Deck.

Use Mind Augus to return a huge chunk of the opponent's graveyard setup back to the Deck. This can be extremely annoying to decks like Shiranui and Crystrons that need certain cards in the graveyard.

Gishki Monsters

Gishki Shadow
Gishki Shadow
WATER Sea Serpent ★4
ATK 1200 / DEF 1000
Judgement Force [SR]
If you Ritual Summon exactly 1 WATER Ritual Monster with a card effect that requires use of monsters, this card can be used as the entire requirement. You can discard this card; add 1 "Gishki" Ritual Spell Card from your Deck to your hand.

Discard Gishki Shadow to fetch Gishki Aquamirror. If you already have the necessary cards for a Ritual Summon, Gishki Shadow can be used as cost-efficient ritual fodder.

Gishki Vision
Gishki Vision
WATER Sea Serpent ★2
ATK 700 / DEF 500
Shark Fang [SR]
If you Ritual Summon exactly 1 WATER Ritual Monster with a card effect that requires use of monsters, this card can be used as the entire requirement. You can discard this card; add 1 "Gishki" Ritual Monster from your Deck to your hand.

Gishki Vision is basically Gishki Shadow but instead of searching the Ritual Spell it searches the Ritual monster. Use this to fetch Soul Ogre.

Gishki Abyss
Gishki Abyss
WATER Fish ★2
ATK 800 / DEF 500
Shark Fang [SR]
When this card is Summoned: You can add 1 "Gishki" monster with 1000 or less DEF from your Deck to your hand, except "Gishki Abyss".

Abyss is a searcher for your searchers. Summon it to get Vision or Shadow onhand, depending on whether you lack a Ritual monster or Spell respectively.

A sample combo would be:

  1. Summon Abyss. Search Vision or Shadow.
  2. Summon Mind Augus. Use Vision or Shadow's search effect if needed. Mind Augus disrupts the opponent's graveyard.
  3. Use Territory of the Sharks Skill.
  4. Make Spider Shark using Mind Augus and Abyss as material.

Salvage

Salvage
Salvage
Normal Spell
Abyss Encounter [UR]
Target 2 WATER monsters with 1500 or less ATK in your Graveyard; add those targets to your hand.

Directly increases your resources. All of your non-Ritual Main Deck monsters are viable targets for Salvage, and all of them can lead to further searching.

Gishki Aquamirror

Gishki Aquamirror
Gishki Aquamirror
Ritual Spell
Abyss Encounter [SR]
This card can be used to Ritual Summon any "Gishki" Ritual Monster. You must also Tribute monsters from the field or your hand whose total Levels equal the Level of the Ritual Monster you Ritual Summon. You can shuffle this card from the Graveyard into the Deck to target 1 "Gishki" Ritual Monster in your Graveyard; return that target to your hand.

The standard Gishki Ritual Spell. The ritual cost is pretty normal but is made more efficient with Shadow and Vision's first effects. Added to that, Aquamirror's built-in recovery effect is a great way to recycle both your Ritual monster and Ritual Spell.

Extra Decks

Number 32: Shark Drake
Number 32: Shark Drake
WATER Fish ★4
ATK 2800 / DEF 2100
Shark Fang [UR]
3 Level 4 monsters
Once per turn, when this attacking card destroys an opponent's monster by battle and sends it to the Graveyard: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; Special Summon the destroyed monster to your opponent's side of the field in face-up Attack Position, also it loses 1000 ATK, and if you do Summon this way, this card can make a second attack during this Battle Phase.

Very costly to summon, but you can add it to your Extra Deck just incase. Shark Drake is entirely focused on dealing large amounts of battle damage, which is not the focus of this deck but can help you end games.

Number 37: Hope Woven Dragon Spider Shark
Number 37: Hope Woven Dragon Spider Shark
WATER Fish ★4
ATK 2600 / DEF 2100
Shark Fang [UR]
2 Level 4 WATER monsters
When any player's monster declares an attack: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; all monsters your opponent currently controls lose 1000 ATK until the end of this turn. When this card is destroyed by battle or card effect and sent to the Graveyard: You can target 1 other monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon it. You can only use each effect of "Number 37: Hope Woven Dragon Spider Shark" once per turn.

Spider Shark is a more reasonable monster to summon. The debuff effect is actually quite helpful for deterring enemy attacks and allowing you to run over enemy monsters. The floating effect is also great because it can bring back a properly summoned Soul Ogre.

Evigishki Merrowgeist
Evigishki Merrowgeist
WATER Aqua ★4
ATK 2100 / DEF 1600
Shark Fang [R]
2 Level 4 monsters
After damage calculation, if this card destroys an opponent's monster by battle: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; shuffle the destroyed monster into the Deck instead of sending it to the Graveyard.

Similar to Mind Augus but less effective, Merrowgeist's purpose is to mess with Decks that need their graveyard setup. But her low ATK makes it difficult for her to actually destroy monsters by battle unless Spider Shark is also on the field.

So how does this deck look like now? (apart from looking like garbage) Is gishki chain not needed now? All those searchers look good but the boss monster is terrible
<< Anonymous

No gishki chain is not needed, it's easily kog worthy.

The goal is to summon soul ogre and another gishki, use skill then summon the water xyz
The water xyz can reduce attack of all opponents monsters and f lost a into soul ogre if it dies

Then you must tweak the entire deck to a ritual only variant.

The skill tickets we got this week can be exchanged for "Territory of the Shark", check of you still have the ticket

Gishkis really got a buff, have the consistency and can play through 2 disruptions and no, I'm not saying they are meta I'm just saying they are decent.

Please wait some more time.

We just released a few new boxes these last months. If we released what you want right now you won't be spending more money on boxes you don't want. This is contrary to our business model.

Could you buy those boxes 3 times each please? This will help us finance the release of new cards faster.

If we all buy all of your boxes thrice you will release new cards faster?

Thanks Konami

It's because gishki isn't complete. Complete version definitely more broken than current ca

CA is also incomplete (Vishnu and Natasha inst in the game). And even more with Herald of Perfection + Saffira combo it would be too broken for Duel Links

That's it. We are at the mercy of komoney. How good an archetype will be depends how much they want to release it. If not mistaken, when ppl says this is more broken than ca, that was when gishki was datamined. No one knows how complete it will be upon release that time

Yep, Gishki was broken because of the Gustkraken hand loop, but we don't have Gustkraken in DL.

The Mirror Magic is all about:

STEAL!NG a body.
Becoming someone else.

Let's say you want to fight an enemy land. Through Mirror Magick you'll steal the identity and appearance of your foe.

Gishkis are vampires, they need to make you feel guilty and tell you: "The mirror reflects what you are". it's not that way.

The mirror is like SOUL EXCHANGE.
"I'll become you".
"You'll become me".

it's stealing, it's black magick.

any option for the second TTH? i dont have a second copy of it :C

I think this is one of the few archetypes that never were meta or competitive at all, at least not in duel links.

It's probably never been Tier 1, but it was probably like Tier 2-3 back when we got Abyss Encounters. It's certainly nowhere near the least playable (or played) archetype in Duel Links. I'll go ahead and point out that things like Dark Scorpions and Volcanics exist, though Gishki probably saw more play than much larger archetypes like Worms and Vylons, too.

Gishki was an infamous FTK/hand loop deck back in the day, to the point where 2 of their cards are still limited to this very day on the F/L list

1 of them (Mind Augus) is actually in Duel Links, but without Gustkraken (the hand-looper) it’s useless.
