Overview

Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Evening Twilight and Silent Swordsman may seem like an unusual pair, but these two cards do actually have some synergy.

Thanks to the recently added Charging Charging Gaia the Fierce Knight, you can now get a Warrior-Type monster on the field to Tribute for Silent Swordsman and search Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Evening Twilight at the same time.

How to Use

Gateway to Chaos

Use Gateway to Chaos to add Charging Gaia the Fierce Knight from your Deck to your hand. You can pair this card with Storm to get more value out of it and potentially send a Silent Sword Slash to the Graveyard to search Silent Swordsman.

Keep in mind that you can only activate a Gateway to Chaos per turn: it definitely increases the consistency of the deck, but I wouldn’t advise running three copies of it.

Charging Gaia the Fierce Knight

Although Charging Gaia the Fierce Knight is a Level 7 monster, you can Normal Summon it without Tributing. If you Summon Charging Gaia this way, its original ATK will become 1900, but its DEF will stay the same, giving it some pretty respectable stats for a Normal Summon.

As I mentioned in the Overview, Charging Gaia provides an easy Tribute for Silent Swordsman while also allowing you to add a copy of Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Evening Twilight from your Deck to your hand. I decided to go for two copies of the latter in the Example Deck, but you can totally run just one if you feel like it’s enough.

Silent Swordsman

Each Standby Phase Silent Swordsman will gain 500 ATK, so, while its original ATK is pretty low, thanks to its effect and Silent Swords Slash, this monster will quickly become more of a threat.

In addition to the ability to, once per turn, negate the activation of a Spell Card, Silent Swordsman, similarly to its Spellcaster counterpart, can Special Summon from your Deck or hand another “Silent Swordsman” monster when it’s destroyed by battle or by an opponent’s card effect. The “Silent Swordsman” monster you more than likely want to Special Summon with Silent Swordsman’s effect is Silent Swordsman LV7, a 2800 ATK Warrior-Type monster that negates the effects of all Spell Cards on the field.

Since Silence Sword Slash’s effect can’t be negated, you will still be able to target Silent Swordsman LV7 with it and, since its activation can’t be negated either, an opponent’s Silent Magician, Wiz, Sage Fur Hire or Silent Swordsman won’t be able to prevent you from activating it.

Junk Synchron

When paired with What Grows in the Graveyard, Junk Synchron should really be considered just a Normal Summon Armades, Keeper of Boundaries. It’s true that that’s not the only thing this card can do, but it’s clearly the biggest reason why you’d want to include it in your Deck.

Junk Synchron is a Warrior-Type monster, which means it can be Tributed for Silent Swordsman, it’s a DARK monster, which is relevant because of Black Luster Soldier, and it’s also obviously a Tuner, so it even gives you access to your Extra Deck.

Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Evening Twilight

Thanks to Sphere Kuriboh, Charging Gaia and Junk Synchron, getting LIGHT and DARK monsters into your Graveyard is really not that difficult. Black Luster Soldier is an alternative Boss Monster, it can provide removal and even disrupt your opponent’s play with its effect, not to mention it ties with Blue-Eyes White Dragon and Koa'ki Meiru Maximus when it comes to ATK.

You are obviously not forced to run Junk Synchron, there are a lot of LIGHT and DARK Warrior-Type monsters that you can include in your Deck, but, if you are going for this particular version, then What Grows in the Graveyard is likely your best choice.

Weaknesses

  • The deck can potentially generate a few unplayable hands, which is definitely not great in the current meta.
  • Backrow can be sort of problematic although it’s also true that both Koa'ki Meiru and Vampire hardly run any.
  • Without Sphere Kuriboh, you can be vulnerable to an OTK on Turn 2. Silent Swordsman’s ability to float into its LV7 version can be helpful in this type of situation.

I never said that, I said: you can totally run one copy of the latter (referring to Black Luster Soldier).

Saw this deck, but not the exact version on a street replay today. Charging Gaia, backrow protection and a synchro summon into Stardust to setup the BLS.

And at King of Games level too according to the info, just wish I screenshot the thing.

A very F2P friendly deck.

I have all the card for this deck but Yami Yugi said "Lol nope, no Gaia for you"...

Litterally over 80 fights against him, 400 orbs wasted to refill standard opponents to make him appear again and this is what I got... I only asked for at least 2 Gaia :c

Well there isnt really a better option for a < Lv 4 drak warrior type and using only kuribohs for bls seems risky

The deck seems too slow and would struggle against high beaters like blue eyes if you don't have at least one kuriboh & a total lack of backrow makes it unversatile.

I think I'm going to take out one LV7 and one BLS for two copies of Hallucigenia

This is a meme tier deck at best. You're going to brick loads with 7 monster cards and 2 spell cards which cannot do a thing on their own.
