Mystical Beast of the Forest Synchro: deck recipe

Duel Links Breaking News
Selection Box Vol.03
update 14/12/2018


Land of the Titans, the set that the vast majority of the playerbase has always considered to be the worst ever released in Duel Links, has finally been re-evaluated and it is mainly thanks to Secrets of the Ancients.

This deck centers around Obedience Schooled, a particular Spell Card featured in the 4th Mini BOX that allows you Special Summon 3 Beast-Type monsters straight from your Deck. Now that Beast-Type Tuners are available, this card has significantly risen in value, as it allows you to quickly thin your Deck and get a Synchro monster out on the field without any particular setup.

How To Use

If you haven’t looked through these cards because you simply decided to skip this BOX and hold on to your Gems, you might be confused by just how many different monsters we are running.

Obedience Schooled is a beautiful card—it does have a lot of restrictions, but it does also allow you to pick exactly what you need directly from your deck, so you can essentially run less copies of a certain card while still keeping everything pretty consistent.

Main Combos (Obedience Schooled into Thunder Unicorn)

If you control no monsters, Obedience Schooled allows you to Special Summon 3 Level 2 or lower Beast-Type monsters with different names from your Deck, which is great, but, as I mentioned, this card does have a lot of restrictions. The effects of the monsters you Special Summoned are negated and you can only Special Summon Beast-Type monsters for the rest of the turn.

You could just Tribute these monsters, but this is not what we are here for. By Special Summoning a Level 2 Tuner (Valerifawn, Mystical Beast of the Forest), a Level 2 non-Tuner (Kalantosa, Mystical Beast of the Forest) and a Level 1 non-Tuner (Uniflora, Mystical Beast of the Forest), you can Synchro Summon Thunder Unicorn.

Once per turn, this Level 5 Synchro can lower the ATK of a monster your opponent controls by 500 for each monster you control. If you control only Thunder Unicorn, you wouldn’t be able to do much, but you haven’t used your Normal Summon yet. Ideally you want to Summon another Valerifawn, Mystical Beast of the Forest and activate its effect to Special Summon Kalantosa, Mystical Beast of the Forest from your Graveyard by discarding a card from your hand.

If Kalantosa, Mystical Beast of the Forest is Special Summoned by the effect of a Beast-Type monster, it allows you to target a card on the field and destroy it. Now you have three monsters on the field, so Thunder Unicorn will lower the ATK of a monster your opponent controls by 1500, so it will pretty much be able to get over anything you want.

Egotistical Ape

This Level 5 Tuner can be Special Summoned from your hand by discarding a Beast-Type monster. When you Special Summon Egotistical Ape via its effect, you can decide if you want to increase its Level by the Level of the monster you discarded, decrease it or just keep it as it is.

Now I think you understand why the Extra Deck includes so many Synchro monsters: Egotistical Ape is incredibly versatile as a Tuner.


Canadia can slow down your opponent by flipping monsters they control in face-down Defense Position and even Special Summon itself from the Graveyard as a Level 2 monster.

You can use Paleozoic Canadia as Synchro Material, but keep in mind that, if when it leaves the field, the card is banished.

Backrow Removal

This Quick-Play Spell has synergy with Firm as the EARTH, so we are running it over Hey, Trunade! despite the fact that there are no other Semi-Limited cards in the deck.

It’s unfortunate that Thunder Unicorn is LIGHT rather than EARTH, but all of the Main Deck monsters and Giganticastle can benefit from Gaia Power. Cosmic Cyclone gives you direct access to the Field Spell.

The Tie that Binds / Beatdown!

The Tie that Binds
Until the end of you turn, the ATK of all face-up monsters on your field increases by the number of monsters on your field times 100. This skill can only be used once per turn.

This turn, the Atk of all Level 5 or higher face-up monsters on your field increases by the number of monsters of Level 5 or higher on your field times 300.

These two Skills will help your Synchro monsters get over common threats such as Masked HERO Anki and Blue-Eyes White Dragon.



I don't think Gaia Power skill is a good idea for this deck. None of the main deck monsters are strong beaters (Kalantosa even has much higher DEF than ATK!), so this deck pretty much aim to synchro fast, and only 1 out of 5 synchro there actually benefits from Gaia Power.

Maybe Luminous Spark skill instead? So you can boost the ATK of Thunder Unicorn and Armades, and 2600 ATK AFD means she can beat up enemy monsters too, although in the current meta, having that bulky 3000 DEF is preferred.

It's not like anyone would be seriously using this deck only in PVP especially in higher rank, so I don't think losing 3000 DEF is an issue.

Still, would be nice to know what ValleCulla thinks about it, I think he/she is the one who made this article XD

You bring up a few interesting points; if I were to update this deck, I would probably focus more on Thunder Unicorn. Radiating LIGHT would allow Thunder Unicorn to get over Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon and Koa'ki Meiru Maximus with just one monster on the field: it's definitely superior to Firm as the EARTH.

I find it kind of funny that, thanks to Cosmic Cyclone and Canadia, this deck would actually hold off decently well against Geartown Turbo.
Amusing deck, maybe I finally have a reason to get 3 copies of that cute bunny.

2x fabled kudabbi

Might, but I don't think it improved "that" much. Cerburrel here is literally just a Level 2 Tuner since its effect wouldn't really get a chance to activate. You can't Summon Balmung after Obedience Schooled and Kudabbi is not that great oitside of a Fabled Deck.

Fun deck but we still need a big bad boss Beast to make it work
