Yu-Gi-OhThe prototype of the World Chalice is closely linked with the archetype of the World Heritage Site. The two work in tandem to Link Summon powerful monsters from the game’s many other archetypes. If you’re looking for a themed deck that can host a duel yourself, try World Chalice.
Since World Chalice’s focus is on Link Summoning cards from outside of its prototype, it doesn’t really have that many. We’ve removed the World Grail’s Normal Monsters from this list, but haven’t diminished their importance as Materials.
Lee the World Chalice Fairy
|Type||Monster [Fairy / Effect]|
|ATK / DEF||100/2000|
|Effect||If this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You can add 1 “World Chalice” monster from your Deck to your hand. If this card is in your GY: You can send 1 monster from your hand or field to the GY; Add this card to your hand. You can only use each effect of “Lee the World Chalice Fairy” once per turn.|
Lee gives the World Chalice deck the consistency it needs to have the right monster at the right time. Whenever she is summoned, she allows you look for “World Chalice” monsters in your Deck.
From the Graveyard, she can trade places with a card in your hand, from which you can Summon her again and find another card. You can also send a card from the field to get Lee from the Graveyard, have the potential to cause other effects.
Imduk the World Chalice Dragon
|Type||Monster [Dragon / Link / Effect]|
|Effect||1 Normal Monster, with the exception of your Main Phase Token, you can Normal Summon 1 “World Chalice” monster in addition to your Normal / Set Summon. (You can only gain this effect once per turn). At the start of the Damage Step, if this card battles your opponent’s monster, this card indicates: You can destroy that opponent’s monster. If this card is sent from the field to GY: You can Special Summon 1 “World Chalice” monster from your hand.|
Imduk allows the World Chalice deck to set the tempo early in the game. Once Summoned, he will grant one more Normal or Set Summon per turn, allowing you quickly gain an advantage over the opponent. His low ATK means he won’t win many skirmishes simply based on strength, but his effect allows him to kill his target before damage is applied like as long as it’s directly in front of him.
Imduk requires Normal Monsters as Link Materials; Effect Monsters cannot be used to Link Summon him.
Ningirsu the World Chalice Warrior
|Type||Monster [Warrior / Link / Effect]|
|Effect||2+ Link Monsters If this card is Link Summoned: Draw cards equal to the number of “World Chalice” monsters this card points to. You can only use this effect of “Ningirsu the World Chalice Warrior” once per turn. Once per turn: You can send 1 card from each player’s field to the GYs. If this card is sent from the yard to the GY; you can Special Summon 1 “World Chalice” monster from your hand.|
Ningirsu has a lot of utility, which is good because he needs a lot of setup to Summon. Careful planning before bringing him into play can give you a pretty good draw, and he’s capable of killing your opponent’s monsters without attacking.
He works best if you can reliably put cards on the field that you don’t mind losing to his ability. When Ningirsu is sent to the Graveyard (can be done with his own ability, eliminating your opponent’s monsters at the same time), he will allow you to Special Summon a replacement from your hand.
Ib the World Chalice Priestess
|Type||Monster [Spellcaster / Link / Effect]|
|Effect||2 monsters with different Types and Attributes This Link Card cannot be destroyed by battle or its effects. Your opponent cannot target this affiliate card with card effects. If the monster(s) this card points to would be destroyed by a card effect, you can send this card to GY instead. If this card is sent from the field to GY: You can Special Summon 1 “World Chalice” monster from your hand.|
Ib the World Chalice Priestess (not to be confused with the currently banned Ib the World Chalice Justicar) gives your field a significant defense boost. As long as she has the card immediately to her left or right, she cannot be destroyed by battle or card effects, nor can she be targeted by your opponent’s card effects. She also protects the cards next to her with the option go to the Graveyard in their place.
When she gets to the Graveyard (like it or not), you can immediately replace her with the World Chalice monster from your hand, Make sure your board location remains secure.
Auram the World Chalice Blademaster
|Type||Monster [Cyberse / Link / Effect]|
|Effect||2 “World Chalice” monsters Get 300 ATK for each “World Heritage” monster in your GY with a different name. You can Tribute 1 “World Chalice” monster this card points to, then target 1 other monster in your GY; Special Summon it to your area this card points to. You can only use this effect of “Auram the World Chalice Blademaster” once per turn. If this card is sent from the field to GY: You can Special Summon 1 “World Chalice” monster from your hand.|
Auram highlights the synergy between World Chalice and World Legacy, achieving significantly increase his ATK for every single World Legacy card in your Graveyard.
He starts at 2000 ATK for sure, so it doesn’t take many cards to get him to a deadly level. He also allows you to swap World Chalice monsters from the field for monsters (of any archetype type) in your Graveyard, as long as he points to the intended Tribute.
World Chalice Guardragon Almaduke
|Type||Monster [Dragon / Fusion / Effect]|
|ATK / DEF||3000/2600|
|Effect||3 Link Monsters must first be Fusion Summoned or Special Summoned by the above cards you control (in which case, you do not use “Polymerization”). This card can attack all monsters your opponent controls once. When an attack is declared involving this card and an opponent’s Link Monster: You can banish 1 Link Monster with the same Link Rank as that monster from your field or GY : destroy that opponent’s monster, and if you do, damage your opponent equal to its original ATK.|
If your Deck can execute its Link Command consistently and successfully, then Almaduke will be a perfect finisher. With his massive 3000 ATK and the ability to attack every monster your opponent controls, he prevents your opponent from having any monsters with less than 3000 ATK for more than one turn.
If your opponent is up against a powerful Link Monster of their own, Almaduke has the tools to remove the threat and punish your opponent with direct damage.
