Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel finally arrived and immediately became the main way to play card games in a completely virtual capacity. With tournaments and official events promised to take place in it, Master Duel is becoming one of the Yu-Gi-Oh! game out there. Nearly every card ever released is in the game, making finding a deck for new players intimidating.
Among the decks available are Mayakashi, a series of Monsters built around Synchro, climbing their powerful, high-attack Synchro Monsters. They are also Zombie type, which means they can also take advantage of more generic Zombie support cards.
Yasha, The Skeletal Mayakashi
Yasha, Mayakashi Skeleton is a monster useful for starting your Sync plays. Special Summoning is easy, just removing another Mayakashi Monster can be done. It will trap you in a Mayakashi Extra Deck Monster for the rest of the turn, but in general Mayakashi decks have no room for non-Mayakashi Extra Deck Monsters.
Yasha, Skeletal Mayakashi is important because you need a way to get lots of Monsters on the field to start Synchro Climb, and Yasha is one of the easiest ways to do that.
Tengu, Mayakashi with wings
Tengu, the winged Mayakashi is one of many Synchro Monsters available in the Mayakashi lineup. All of Mayakashi’s Synchro Monsters share an effect that allows them to Special Summon if a Synchro Monster of their higher Level is destroyed by banishing another Zombie Monster from the Meaning land.
If Tengu, the Special Winged Mayakashi, summons itself from the Graveyard, it can destroy a Spell or Trap Card your opponent controls. This effect is also non-targeting, meaning that the opponent must initiate the activation if they want to ensure the effect occurs.
Mayakashi Mayhem is the main Continuity Trap card of the Mayakashi Archetype, and a card with many effects attached. Mayakashi Mayhem activates whenever a Zombie Synchro Monster is Special Summoned from anywhere but the Extra Deck.
Mayakashi then allows you to draw a card, burn your opponent for 800 damage, place a Mayakashi Spell or Trap Card directly from or the deck, or send a Monster your opponent controls with low ATK to the Graveyard. The sending effect is the best, as the non-targeted, non-destructive remove is the best delete available in the game.
Ghost Meets Girl – Manuscript by Mayakashi
Ghost Meets Girl – A Mayakshi’s Manuscript is one of the best cards to use if your main game plan for Synchro Climbing is interrupted. As long as you control a Zombie Synchro Monster, you can target it to Special Summon a Monster from the Graveyard or banish that shares the same Attribute as the targeted card.
Since Mayakashi usually uses a card to Synchro Climb, Ghost Meets Girl – A Mayakashi’s Manuscript ensures that there is practically no way for the line to be interrupted unless your Tuner returns to the deck.
Yuki-Musume, The Ice Mayakashi
Yuki-Musume, Ice Mayakashi is one of the easiest Mayakashi Monsters to summon. As long as you control a Mayakashi Monster (except itself), it can be Special Summoned from the hand or Graveyard. It then allows you to send a Zombie Monster from your deck to the Graveyard.
Yuki-Musume, the ice Mayakashi not only help you establish an early board presence but it also helps you to set up your Graveyard. Zombie cards are often the same as being in the Graveyard and an easy way to dump a card there is very welcome in all Zombie decks.
Hajun, Mayakashi has wings
Hajun, the winged Mayakashi is one of the main Normal Summons in a deck of Mayakashi cards. When it is Normal or Special Summoned, you can Special Summon any other Mayakashi Monster from your Deck, but are locked to the Mayakashi Extra Deck Monster for the rest of the turn.
The Deck Special Summon is one of the best effects in the game. In a deck like Mayakashi, even better as it can ensure that you can get your Tuner Monster early to start Synchro Climb, which the Mayakashi deck wants to accomplish as soon as possible. .
Yoko, the charming Mayakashi
The second highest Level Synchro Monster in the Mayakashi lineup, Yoko, Mayakashi Charming is also the best Synchro Mayakashi Monster. It shares the effect of Special Summoning itself from the Graveyard, and if it is Special Summoned from there, gracefully Yoko, Mayakashi can destroy Monsters your opponent controls.
Yoko, Mayakashi’s Effect graces no target, getting around one of the most popular forms of protection in the game. It must also be specially summoned from the Graveyard, not through its own effect. Multiple Zombie cards can easily do this, so it’s very consistent to achieve.
Mayakashi is back!
Mayakashi Return has one of the best effects that the searcher might have. It searches the entire Archetype, all Monster, Spell and Trap cards. After choosing the card you want, you have the option to add it to your hand or send it to the Graveyard.
This effect is great because it gives you much-welcome versatility. Lots of Zombie cards synergize with other Zombies in the Graveyard and Mayakashi Return helps establish that. Alternatively, it can take you to the main level where you can start combining your Synchro Climb.
Dakki, the charming Mayakashi
Dakki, the charming Mayakashi is one of the greatest Tuner Monsters ever printed. The only reason it’s not widely played is that it traps you in a Mayakashi Extra Deck Monster. In the Mayakashi deck, it is one of the most important cards in the entire Archetype.
It is a Level Two Modifier that can be Special Summoned from the Graveyard whenever a Mayakashi Monster is Special Summoned from the Extra Deck. This effect is not once per turn, which means you can continuously cast it. Dakki, the graceful Mayakashi is how Mayakashi orchestrated the Synchro Climb, and made it almost trivial with ease of execution.
Yuki-Onna, The Absolute Zero Mayakashi
Yuki-Onna, The Absolute Zero Mayakashi is the main Boss Monster of the Mayakashi Archetype. This is a slightly steeper Link Four, but only requires the common ingredients of two or more Zombie Monsters.
When it hits the field, Yuki-Onna, Mayakashi of The Absolute Zero permanently negates the activated effects of the opponent’s Banished Monsters. It can even disable a Monster on the field and make its ATK permanent zero whenever a Monster is Special Summoned from the Graveyard or an effect is activated there. Yuki-Onna, The Absolute Zero Mayakashi is a formidable negator to combat, and is difficult to eliminate with its 2900 Attack.
The power of word of mouth.
