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.
What if you don't have Gishki Ariel? Are there any other options for a Gishki ritual deck? I'm a budget player and went through the Abyss Encounters box only once and I have Gishki Levianima. I really want to make one and any help or replies are appreciated.

Run Manju if you have him- it’s generic ritual support of the same level that also searches ritual monsters

It’s not exactly an easy replacement (he’s still an old main box UR) but it’s something

Some sr tickets provides you gishki ariel. I'm not too sure cause i re-rolled my account and got those tickets from log in rewards

To be honest... I actually like Gishiki. I mean, I have had better luck with them than I ever did Cyber Angels. They're not hard to summon for starters. And they're just fun. If only I could get the two from the Tower events...
I think Komoney want me to make a Gishiki deck

I know, just a bit pissed off that all the rarer cards I’ve been getting are these ones and not SSA or Legendary Fisherman II

The same happens with me. I wanna make Alien and Archfiend decks, but I get only Gishki. And think I have 2 Gishki Ur ando only 1 Alien Telepath with 80 packs.

Lol remember when people said right before they got released that they were better than CA looks like water gishkis got flushed down the toilet

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
So, this deck is the ultimate counter to any Mill, I'm having so much fun when mill is sending 9 cards to Graveyard and I'm recovering 12 cards from graveyard via the 2 ritual summons and the actual ritual cards. Almost lost to timer tho.

This deck loses to anything else besides Mill in legend 1, where I'm currently at.
Moray of Greed can really smooth out your draws.

capslock deck is not really gishki imo, only decks based on rituals should be classified as gishki.

Speaking of Rituals, hope Konami implements Incantation very soon. If not, then any other Ritual or archetype would be nice.

*cough* Nekroz. *cough*
how do u make forbidden arts of the gishki work? i have no aquamirrors
<< Anonymous(Michael)
Ojama King Reply
forbidden arts works best with Psychelone otherwise it's not worth it. and should be used with ssa to return halved atk of monster back to normal.
I tried this with SSA. It is fun, but not as good as the pure SSA. Also, when you face pure SSA with Legendary Ocean, it is almost impossible to ritual summon anything because of the decrease in monster levels.
Mako DOESN'T learn Restart dammit!

Balance would work well since it ensures a ritual spell in starting hand

Mako can unlock restart skills can be farmed either in ranked or by the duel gate.
only 1 gishki chain.. no evigishki levianima and playing gishki vanity... seems like a good tier 3 deck

Dodnt even watch the movie.. Huh? Well there you go. If you ever do.. watch the sub; dub is cringey.
Exploiting glitches is against the terms of use and if you do this, Konami might close your accou...
That's why it's just an R rarity card.
