Updated Information

  • Vylon Synchro Decklist and Notes Updated

Overview

“Vylon” is an archetype of LIGHT Attribute monsters whose effects revolve around the use of Equip Cards. This deck focuses on Summoning Vylon Sigma, a Level 7 Synchro that we can now Summon without the use of Photon Lead or Powerful Rebirth thanks to Trident Warrior.

How to Use

Main Combos

Trident Warrior + Vylon Cube

When Normal Summoned, Trident Warrior allows you to Special Summon a Level 3 monster from your hand. Use Trident Warrior to Special Summon Vylon Cube and then send them both to the Graveyard to Special Summon Vylon Sigma or Ancient Fairy Dragon from your Extra Deck.

Since both Vylon Sigma and Ancient Fairy Dragon are LIGHT Attribute monsters, Vylon Cube’s effect will activate, allowing you to add an Equip Spell Card from your Deck to your hand. Add Mage Power to your hand and equip it to your Vylon Sigma and attack your opponent.

When Vylon Sigma declares an attack, if it’s the only monster you control, it allows you to equip an Equip Spell Card to it directly from your Deck. If you use Vylon Sigma’s effect to equip Twin Swords of Flashing Light - Tryce, you will not have to pay its activation cost and, since there is no restriction on how many times you can use the effect of this Level 7 Synchro, you will be able to declare a second attack and equip another Equip Spell Card from your Deck to it.

Use Hey, Trunade! or Cosmic Cyclone to get rid of your opponent’s backrow and then OTK them with Vylon Sigma.

Paleozoic Canadia + Vylon Cube

Once per Chain, when a Trap Card is activated while Paleozoic Canadia is in your Graveyard, you can Special Summon it as a Level 2 Normal Monster. Canadia, in combination with Vylon Cube, gives you access to Armades, Keeper of Boundaries.

Since Armades is a LIGHT Attribute monster, just like Vylon Sigma, Vylon Cube will allow you to add an Equip Spell Card from your Deck to your hand.

Armades usually has trouble dealing with any monster that is above 2300 ATK, but, with the help of Mage Power, you can easily solve this problem. Keep in mind that your Set Spell & Trap Cards will also increase the ATK boost that Armades receives, so you only need another one on the field to get over Vampire Grace (under Vampire Kingdom), Masked HERO Anki and even Cosmo Brain.

Armades is able to shut down Sphere Kuriboh, Wall of Disruption and Drowning Mirror Force, so, while it’s definitely not as easy to get out as Vylon Sigma, it is definitely worth

Protection

Canadia can not only be used to disrupt your opponent’s plays but also offensively: by flipping monsters such as Masked HERO Anki and Vampire Grace face-down, you are allowing Vylon Sigma and Armades, Keeper of Boundaries to get over them. Paleozoic Canadia works particularly well in combination with Armades because your opponent is able to activate cards or effects when it declares an attack.

A very effective Battle Trap against Masked HEROes because it forces the opponent to activate Mask Change and Special Summon Masked HERO Anki in Defense Position to save their monster. You can substitute this with Wall of Disruption or Drowning Mirror Force.

Use this Skill to put Twin Swords of Flashing Light - Tryce or even Mage Power back into the Deck, so you will be able to equip them from there with Vylon Sigma or search them again with Vylon Cube. You can run Cosmic Cyclone to make it easier to activate this Skill.

Radiating LIGHT
Can be used after your Life Points are at 2000 or below. Play the Field Spell "Luminous Spark." If there already is Field Spell on your side of the Field, return it to your hand. This skill can only be used once per Duel.

Another Skill that you can run Cosmic Cyclone with. Having a Field Spell will further increase the ATK of your monsters, making it easier to OTK your opponent and Mage Power will also give you an additional 500 ATK.

You can run Junk Synchron with this Skill and take out Ancient Fairy Dragon for another copy of Armades, Keeper of Boundaries. The Yubel matchup becomes even worse, but you can Synchro Summon more consistently.

Weaknesses

  • The deck relies a lot on Trident Warrior, which you are not always going to have in your starting hand. Junk Synchron and What Grows in the Graveyard can give you an alternative Boss Monster to Summon consistently when Vylon Sigma is not available.
  • Spellbook of Fate and Treacherous Trap Hole can be used to either prevent you from Synchro Summoning or to get rid of Vylon Sigma/Armades. In a similar way Paleozoic Canadia and Floodgate Trap Hole are very effective against this deck. Backrow removal is pretty important, so you might want to run more than just the two copies of Hey, Trunade! displayed in the Example Deck.
  • Vampire Vamp can deal with Armades and Vylon Sigma, assuming you already equipped it with Mage Power.
  • Yubel Fire King is probably the deck against which you are going to struggle the most.

A Vylon deck with only 5 Vylon cards.

True, but at this point, can it even be called a Vylon deck? It seems more like an Equipment Synchro deck that just 'happens' to feature Vylons.

I see your point, but the main monster you want to Summon is Sigma. Anyway in a 20 cards deck 5 cards of a single archetype is not a bad ratio, it's 25%.

It's actually 3 cards in a 20 cards deck, as both copies of Sigma are in the extra deck, outside of that 20.

That being said, I don't mind this deck's name, the deck's aim IS to summon a Vylon Synchro monster, after all.

I've never gotten why people want to add more cards of an archetype just for the sake of it. If it makes you sleep better at night, you could probably add a Vylon Filament or something without hurting the deck a whole lot, but really... This is clearly a Vylon deck. The star of the show and only real win condition is Sigma.

I guess 3 Canadia is now a staple in all decks..:)

With trident warrior out this deck can be so much better

Im new to his archetype but it seems like it has great synergy with wind ups.
Weird...

For stalling. Summon knight, negate attack, summon tuner and synchro.

there should be 3x tricky and 3x ninja earth, and then 2 sets of the lv 3 tuners, 5-6x vylon equips and the one spell that returns 3 equip from the grave to the deck that allows either a draw or destroy card, better deck idea and that was just off the top of my head

epsilon is the new boss, the deck needs to revolve around bringing him out and equipping him to either destroy monsters, attack for 3400, or attack and opponent can't activate spell/trap

A Vylon deck with only 3 Vylon monsters in the main deck, and no Vylon equip card... I'm sorry but I'd rather a complete Vylon deck, even if it's a little less consistant.

Nah. The ideal way to build a Vylon deck here is around loading a Sigma with equips. (That's one of the two main strategies the deck has in the TCG as well, alongside Vylon Element spam, which is much less effective here with only 3 zones.) The non-Tuner Vylons simply aren't very good for the most part.

I put Parallel Twister in here instead of Cosmic Cyclone and Sphere Kurbioh instead of Wall of D. Testing now...

This deck seems awkward and rushed. Gravity Blaster with Power Tool Dragon as the only decent target seems odd. And the deck should be running a copy of Twin Swords of Flashing Light - Tryce, it combos incredibly well with Sigma. (And you only need one since it can equip it from the Deck.)
