Yu-gi-oh! Deck Discussion - Crystal Beast II and Yu-gi-oh! Deck Explanation - Gishki and Crystal Beasts

To fix my mistake (in Crystal Beast I), I already came up with a new build for Crystal Beasts that gets rid of that mistake. Anyway, enjoy!

2x Crystal Beast Amber Mammoth
2x Crystal Beast Amethyst Cat
2x Crystal Beast Colbalt Eagle
2x Crystal Beast Emerald Tortoise
2x Crystal Beast Ruby Carbuncle
2x Crystal Beast Sapphire Peggasus
2x Crystal Beast Topaz Tiger
2x Rainbow Dragon
2x Summoner Monk

Dark Hole
Monster Reborn
2x Mystical Space Typhoon
3x Crystal Abundance
3x Crystal Blessing
3x Crystal Release
3x Crystal Beacon

2x Crystal Pair
3x Starlight Road

Extra Deck:
3x Stardust Dragon
Daigusto Emeral
Evigishki Merrowgeist
3x Lavalval Chain
Leviair the Sea Dragon
Number 39: Utopia
Steelswarm Roach
Wind-Up Zenmaines
Number 30: Acid Golem the Destruction
Number 17: Levaithan Dragon
Number 20: Gig-Anto Brill-Ant

The main problem I had before was that I was stuck with barely any Crystal Beasts as Continuous Spell Cards, so I tried to avoid the cards that has the requirements of Crystal Beasts required in the Spell/Trap Zones. It's why I was going for searches, but I didn't notice that error on my part, and I apologize for that. So, I began to look for easy ways to search, and came across such cards as Key Mouse (which is no longer in this deck, because I stopped worrying about easy searches and focused more on protecting my cards).


Yu-gi-oh! Deck Explanation - Gishki:

  • Main Concept: Ritual Spam.
  • Why is Deep Sea Diva in here?: Because it can search out Vision Gishki for either a Level 4 Synchro Summon, Rank 2 Xyz Summoning, or sacrificing Vision Gishki for a Ritual Summon. Also, the more I get into the Graveyard, the more targets I may have with Salvage.
  • Main Problem: The only problem I have encountered with the Gishki deck is not being able to get the Ritual Spell Card I need in the hand for the Ritual Summoning. I'll be finding out ways to fix that part, but other than that, there's not much I can do about it.

Anyway, rate, comment, fix, thoughts, and discuss. Enjoy!


  1. I like the build but shouldn't you have x3 Crystal Beast Sapphire Peggasus because of his effect that grabs beasts from hand, deck, or grave in your s/t card zone.

  2. I always see Beacon and Pegasus like the engine of the entire deck. While ruby makes all the big moves to win.

    I see three things on the deck that maybe won't work together.

    Starlight road - Heavy storm - Abundance: I tried to use heavy, but the good moment to active it is before make a big move (like beacon), and at the same time, it was the worse moment to active heavy. Starlight just block my way to abuse of ruby and abundace was pretty useless if my opponent didn't commint to the field.

  3. @ Anonymous

    I'm considering going with 3 Crystal Beast Sapphire Peggasus, but at the same time, if I switch to one other Crystal Beast, and if it's in the Graveyard, my deck becomes much more vulnerable if it gets removed from the picture.

    However, I may consider dropping a Spell/Trap for it. That, I'm not sure of.

    @ Eh_Chavo

    True. For Crystal Beast part I, I was attempting to make it more Beast-type based, and have 800 boosters whenever possible at my disposal.

    For the 3 problem cards, here's the response to them:

    Starlight Road: I'm thinking about dropping the count to 1-2, because it hasn't helped me as much as I hoped.

    Heavy Storm and Crystal Abundance: If these cards become dead, I would use Summoner Monk, dump the dead Spell Card, and get a Crystal Beast.

  4. For Gishki a way to fix the Ritual Spell problem could be with running a Gishki Duplicate Soul Mirror as well which would give you 5 Ritual Spells and 3 searchers for those spells... In my build it's not too big of a problem because I have a draw engine and Erial over Diva.

  5. BTW I Want MORE CARDFIGHT!!! It seems to be coming out here in December so like Yugioh we will be behind by a few sets... but ah well atleast we will have it...
