  1. I think e-con is better than kuriboh. E-con take plays are pretty good, even more so with goka. While Island can be bad at times, it is a staple at 3 imo until we get a better searcher.
  2. Just got to KoG with phoenix again.
  3. I played against a red-eyes exodia deck on plat ladder. I was playing phoenix but hard bricked and they resolved 3 shards of greed as well as 3 cards of red eyes (also insights and spirits). In the end he had a hand of 6 to my 3 yaksha on board and 2 cards left in deck. He drew for turn and conceded. Easily the most satisfactory win of my life.
  4. I think Limit Reverse, Sinister Serpent, Greenkappa and maybe Slushy are all good cards to have from the new set. Silent Magician and Vortex Trooper could be decent too.
  5. I see no reason not to play the "max" amount of phoenix. Without it, what are you playing, really? Your deck is just too fair if you don't have the phoenix plays. Also, you are perfectly fine with drawing multiple phoenix. Many people who run the phoenix deck complain of bricking. I can also confirm that. From what I have heard from them 3 phoenix 2 soul is the most optimal. I ran that last season but now I play 3-3 and it is doing pretty well. You do not care about dead cards of the soul, if you have 1-2 phoenix cycled, you should win anyways.
  6. You should be playing 2-3 cards of the soul, especially since you lack the 3rd phoenix. Chiron is redundant imo with phoenix already destroying the backrows but idk your collection. Treeborn and hand also seem iffy but again, it all boils down to your collection.
  7. Soul exchange can also be used to get a fodder for the ritual summon, right? Also, toons are just super annoying to play against. I don't know how a psychic angmarl deck looks like but the pure psychic deck with "no mortal can resist" is doing pretty well already.
  8. Anti-Magic Arrows is something that red-eyes decks run 1-2 copies of, so rising isn't that great I imagine. Also, if they econ take your monster, you are going to be taking a lot of damage. I think the relinquished package is better. As you mentioned it is hard for the opponent to go over a senju/bird + potentially a sphere kuriboh and OTK. The ritual spell also gets rid of the dead treeborns/serpents in hand. Relinquished is also pretty annoying for them to get rid of. Relinkuriboh also seems like a nice addition to the deck. I feel like if you can bring out relinquished turn 2 consistently, then that deck would be extremelly overpowered.

  10. You can try playing frost and flame dragon with phoenix. Backrows shoulnt be an issue with phoenix. FnF helps getting rid of the dead cards as well as the monsters. For water monsters, yomi ship and gale ensure you don't die to aggro and you can/should be playing sphere kuribohs too. I am not sure if it would be as consistent as the regular phoenix deck, but you can also run seer as your water targets to increase consistency.
  11. In frognarch decks you can now dump serpent and treeborn with skreech so in a way skreech replaces itself. It also has a synergy with tribute to the doomed which is not a terrible card in a deck with 3 angmarl.

  13. I am not sure how linking external stuff works in DGz so not going to link it myself, but Duel Links Meta is probably the best place to have a good idea of what top decks and their lists look like. I am in their discord and can confirm that the decks posted there have reached KoG. Currently, there haven't been any lists under August but the July one is still pretty relevant.

  15. While I haven't tested it myself, I know a KoG GK player who played Divine Wrath instead of the Xing Zhen Hu. I am not a fan of -1 cards, but he argued that it was useful for him. Matchups wise, I think Soul Exchange and E-Con take plays allow GK to beat Phoenix rather easily so Divine Wrath isn't that needed. Relinquished is almost non-existent at this point in Legend and above so I wouldn't be threatened by it. I haven't tested the deck that extensively but yes Wrath + Soul Exchange should beat Mill and Burn pretty easily. However, Oracle can also just destroy the set monsters so Oracle + Soul Exchange might be enough but I am not sure. Red-Eyes is by far the worst matchup. And divine wrath does absolutely nothing. Xing Zhen can freeze their spirits/vigilances if you go first so it is much better than Wrath in this matchup. Naturia isn't super relevant at the moment, but yes Wrath is amazing vs them imo. Overall, the card definitely has some potential, but I think is outclassed by other cards due to the prevalence of Red-Eyes.
