Intro: 

 

Satellarknights or "Tellarknights" are an archetype that consist of Light Warrior monsters and thus far are all level 4. Their first debut is in Duelist Alliance with more support coming out in The Next Challengers. The decks focus revolves around quick and easy summoning as well as having effects that activate upon summoning by any means, normal, flip, special. The art, names, and playstyle is similar to the older archetype constellars. The main deck monsters are named after the brightest stars in the night sky, while the XYZ monsters are named after the asterisms formed by those stars.

 

Tellarknights: [spoiler]

 

Satellarknight Altair

300px-SatellarknightAltair-DUEA-EN-R-1E.

Light Warrior Level 4 ATK/1700 Def/1300

"If this card is Summoned: You can target 1 "tellarknight" monster in your Graveyard, except "Satellarknight Altair"; Special Summon that monster in Defense Position, but monsters you control cannot attack for the rest of this turn, except "tellarknight" monsters. You can only use this effect of "Satellarknight Altair" once per turn."

 

Altair is basically the most important monster of the deck. He is the go to man to spam your XYZ plays. He comes in with a respectable 1700 ATK and a measly 1300 DEF. He is our Wolfbark, Blizzard, or whatever you want to call him and along with bringing back a fallen tellarknight their effects will also activate enabling some cool combos depending on which one you want to bring back. Alternatively you can also bring back your XYZ monsters. The only downside is that you can only attack with TK monsters so be sure to get damage in with them prior to making XYZs if you can.

 

Satellarknight Vega

300px-SatellarknightVega-DUEA-EN-C-1E.pn

Light Warrior Level 4 ATK/1200 Def/1600

"If this card is Summoned: You can Special Summon 1 "tellarknight" monster from your hand, except "Satellarknight Vega". You can only use this effect of "Satellarknight Vega" once per turn."

 

Vega is our Constellar Algiedi. It allows us to special another Tellarknight monster from the hand resulting in cool combos if you summon her from the grave with altair or vice versa. The 1200 attack isn't that much to brag about however it's defense is quite alright. Vega basically allows more wombo combos.

 

Satellarknight Deneb

300px-SatellarknightDeneb-DUEA-EN-UR-1E.

Light Warrior Level 4 ATK/1500 Def/1000

"If this card is Summoned: You can add 1 "tellarknight" monster from your Deck to your hand, except "Satellarknight Deneb". You can only use this effect of "Satellarknight Deneb" once per turn."

 

There's not incredibly much to say about Deneb other than the fact that it's an incredibly good searcher. You can search every time you summon it making the deck super consistent which in most scenarios you are searching out altair so you can rinse and repeat these plays and net more advantage. It has an alright 1500 ATK and a meh 1000 DEF.

 

Satellarknight Unukalhai

300px-SatellarknightUnukalhai-DUEA-EN-C-

Light Warrior Level 4 ATK/1800 DEF/1000

"If this card is Summoned: You can send 1 "tellarknight" card from your Deck to the Graveyard, except "Satellarknight Unukalhai". You can only use this effect of "Satellarknight Unukalhai" once per turn."

 

I cannot pronounce his name for the life of me so I usually call him "unalaq" (LOK reference) Or Unk works too. He is a great set up to get your deneb or other cards in grave to basically like previously stated, set up. Usually Unk or Deneb will be your first move to either gain advantage or set it up for the next turn. Unk has a magnificent 1800 ATk which can get over many things and on turn one cannot really be hit by all that much. He also has 1000 DEF which isn't anything to brag about.

 

Satellarknight Alsahm

300px-SatellarknightAlsahm-DUEA-EN-SR-1E

Light Warrior Level 4 ATK/1400 DEF/1800

"If this card is Summoned: You can inflict 1000 damage to your opponent. You can only use this effect of "Satellarknight Alsahm" once per turn."

 

If anything Alsahm (Which btw is very terrorist sounding and does not help that he terrorizes your opponent by inflicting damage) is a one of in your deck. He has an ok 1400 attack and an outstanding 1800 defense. His 1k burn can be a really big help especially in the late game or even after an opponents soul charge. With altair, call of the haunted, bridge, delteros, vega, and soul charge there are plenty of ways to activate and resolve his effect to get in chunks of damage that will eventually stack and put pressure on your opponent. Combining that with attacking for an additional 1400 damage and even throwing out a cowboy after can really lower your opponents life.

 

Stellarknight Delteros

300px-StellarknightDelteros-DUEA-EN-ScR-

Light Warrior Rank 4 ATK/2500 DEF/2100

"3 Level 4 monsters While this card has Xyz Material, your opponent cannot activate cards or effects when you Normal or Special Summon a monster(s). Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 card on the field; destroy it. If this card is sent from the field to the Graveyard: You can Special Summon 1 "tellarknight" monster from your hand or Deck."

 

Delteros is an incredible XYZ. He doesn't allow your opponent to respond to summons, can pop a card, and even when he is destroyed can easily replace himself with an altair to further your plays or any tellarknight depending on the situation. He rolls in with a beefy 2500 ATK which is great for what he brings to the table and a very good 2100 DEF.

 

Satellarknight Skybridge

300px-SatellarknightSkybridge-DUEA-EN-R-

Quickplay Spell

"Target 1 "tellarknight" monster you control; Special Summon 1 "tellarknight" monster with a different name from your Deck, and if you do, shuffle the targeted monster into the Deck. While the monster Special Summoned by this effect is face-up on the field, you cannot Special Summon monsters, except "tellarknight" monsters. You can only activate 1 "Satellarknight Skybridge" per turn."

 

A really cool combo card. It allows you to resolve your effects of summoned knights if they were about to be negated as well as replacing it with another TK that will also get its effect. You can put damage on your opponent or attack then use it to get another hit in and get an effect in as well. It comes with a pretty big clause being that you can't special summon monsters except TK but depending how you play it it shouldn't really matter in that case.

 

Stellarnova Alpha

300px-StellarnovaAlpha-DUEA-EN-UR-1E.png

Counter Trap

"When a Spell/Trap Card, or monster effect is activated: Send 1 face-up "tellarknight" monster you control to the Graveyard; negate the activation, and if you do, destroy that card, then draw 1 card."

 

Our all around negation. It allows you to negate any monster effect, spell, or trap while additionally allowing you to draw. It also can help you dodge for your effects to go off on your summons if they were to be negated as well as netting you a draw. Also, there's no clause on this card so you can essentially activate as many as you have depending if you have the amount needed for the cost. Depending how you use this card it can steal you the game.

[/spoiler]

 

OCG Land

[spoiler]

 

Star Seraph Scepter

299px-StarSeraphScepter-DUEA-JP-R.png

Level 4 Fairy Light ATK/1800 DEF/400

"When this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You can add 1 "Star Seraph" monster from your Deck to your hand, except "Star Seraph Scepter". An Xyz Monster that was Xyz Summoned using 3 or more monsters you control as Xyz Materials (including this card on the field) gains this effect. ● When this card is Xyz Summoned: You can target 1 other card on the field; destroy that card, and if you do, you can draw 1 card."

 

It's a light with 1800 ATK. Things are already looking up. This guy is basically a stratos for Seraph monsters which most cases you'll play 3 scepter and 3 sovereign so you'll be searching sovereign with this guy. Now for the reason why this guy has great synergy with the deck, when it's used as an XYZ material your monster gains a new effect being that when your monster XYZ summons itself you can target another card and destroy it then draw. So you can search a card, use this to XYZ get an additional pop for free and depending what you made (Delteros mostly) you can pop again! But Sovereign adds a lot more to the pot as well.

 

Star Seraph Sovereign

300px-StarSeraphSovereign-DUEA-JP-C.png

Level 4 Fairy Light ATK/800 DEF/2000

"This card cannot be used as an Xyz Material, except for the Xyz Summon of a monster that uses 3 or more monsters as Xyz Material for its Xyz Summon. If you Normal or Special Summon a "Star Seraph" monster(s): You can Special Summon this card from your hand, and if you do, draw 1 card, then, if it is a “Star Seraph” monster, you can Special Summon that monster from your hand."

 

In terms of stats compared to scepter this guy is the opposite. He has amazing DEF instead of ATK but like Sceptor his main deal is to be used as an XYZ material. He can only be used with monsters that use 3 or more XYZ materials. So basically your Delteros and since we are in OCG land Number 86 as well as Triveil. Now if you have summoned sceptor and you so happen to already have this in hand you can special this and draw a card when you do. So alongside sceptors adding a card to hand you can draw one as well so they essentially are free cards. Also if that monster happened to be a star seraph monster you can special that as well and if you can resolve the newly summoned monster via that draw (if you wanted to) you'd net more advantage. 

 

Heroic Challenger - Assault Halberd

300px-HeroicChallengerAssaultHalberd-DUE

Level 4 Warrior Earth ATK/1800 DEF/200

"If your opponent controls a monster and you control no monsters, you can Special Summon this card (from your hand). If this card attacks a Defense Position monster, inflict piercing battle damage to your opponent. When this card inflicts battle damage to your opponent: You can add 1 "Heroic" card from your Deck to your hand."

 

A good heroic monster. He is a warrior monster so he may be ROTA'd if needed or used for an XYZ requiring warriors. He comes packing a beefy 1800 ATK along with a stratos effect if you can pull off some battle damage with it getting another copy of himself. Simply put he is a better thrasher in the sense that he can add cards to your hand and still allow all monsters you control to be able to attack rather than having a thrasher that can't.

 

Stellarknight Triveil

300px-StellarknightTriveil-NECH-JP-UR.pn

Rank 4 Warrior Light ATK/2100 DEF/2500

"3 Level 4 "tellarknight" monsters. You cannot Special Summon monsters during the turn this card is Special Summoned, except "tellarknight" monsters. When this card is Xyz Summoned: Return all other cards on the field to the hand. Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; send 1 random card from your opponent's hand to the Graveyard. If this card is sent to the Graveyard while it has Xyz Material: You can target 1 "tellarknight" monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon that target."

 

The second XYZ of the archetype. Triv comes with a clause that is similar to skybridge however it's very much worth it. When Triv is XYZ summoned he returns all other cards on the field to the hand. Depending on the situation this can be very crippling to the opponent if they had a field of XYZs or something similar to that while Tellarknight players can add back dead calls or spare altairs that were left on board. Along with bring cards back to the hand Triv also can send a random card from your opponents hand to the grave further hurting his next turn plays. Unlike Delteros Triv needs a material on him when he is destroyed to get his destruction effect which specials a tellarknight monster from the grave which could be altair, delteros, deneb, or whatever depending but Altair to get a dead delteros is a pretty neato play.

 

Number 86: Heroic Champion - Rhongomiant

300px-Number86HeroicChampionRhongomiant-

Rank 4 Warrior Dark ATK/1500 DEF/1500

"2 or more (max. 5) Level 4 Warrior-Type monsters During each of your opponent's End Phases: Detach 1 Xyz Material from this card. This card gains the following effects based on the number of Xyz Materials attached to it. ● 1 or more: This card cannot be destroyed by battle. ● 2 or more: This card gains 1500 ATK and DEF. ● 3 or more: This card is unaffected by other card effects. ● 4 or more: Your opponent cannot Normal/Special Summon. ● 5 or more: Once per turn: You can destroy all cards your opponent controls."

 

This guy can be made with anywhere between 2-5 materials that are level 4 and the effects will vary depending. If you plan on summoning him chances are you'll do it with 3 or more materials (Assuming we are using star seraphs to also net advantage) Assuming this you'll start off with the first three effects No battle destruction, becomes 3000 ATK/DEF tank, and it's unaffected by other cards. So you are looking at a monster that can come out basically for free that can't be destroyed by battle, has high stats, and can't be affected by anything. But since our deck can easily add to those ranks let's see the last two. 4 Your opponent can't normal or special summon, 5 once per turn you can destroy all cards your opponent controls. So you can summon this guy out with 5 materials and your opponents only out is basically warning otherwise you will nuke their field, prevent them from summoning (setting is still possible) and have free shots at your life points with a nearly unstoppable and unfair monster. He is truly the definition of a boss monster.

Other cards to consider

[spoiler]

 

traptrix myrmeleo

300px-TraptrixMyrmeleo-JOTL-EN-R-1E.png

 

While she may not be a warrior or light monster she can help add cards like bottomless trap hole (which may see less play in a shadoll format) timespace trap hole, and deep dark trap hole (If you choose to side that) Most builds will be running soul charge and call of the haunted so you will also get the benefit of popping a card as well as having an extra level 4 to XYZ into considering Delteros is a generic rank 4.

 

Honest

300px-Honest-SDLI-EN-C-1E.png

 

Honest is a light and a level four so he can give you the benefit of making a starliege paladynamo but realistically he is here to increase your monsters attack. Alternatively you can always soul charge or call of the haunted it back to fall back onto it but you'd have to be in a pretty awkward position for that. 

 

 

300px-PhotonThrasher-SP14-EN-C-1E.png

 

Thrasher is a light warrior which can help with your light XYZ monsters or Warrior onlys. He can be searched with ROTA and can special himself to help with an XYZ. He's basically your go to man until Halberd comes out but Thrasher isn't direly needed in this deck but he can help, it gets the job done without him.

 

300px-ForbiddenChalice-BP03-EN-C-1E.png

 

A great negation card as well it can alternatively be used to get over certain cards as well. We all know it can negate card effects but what this does as opposed to the other cards is negating in damage step which can be crucial depending on certain flip effect monsters.

 

Soul Charge

300px-SoulCharge-DRLG-EN-SR-1E.png

 

It may be a bit obvious to run a massive special summoning card that will trigger all your Tellars I felt I need to put it on here since I seen some lists leave it out for some reason. Soul charge can reward you well in this deck depending on what you have. You can easily soul charge a deltaros and bring back vega to special one from your hand and so on or you can just grab everything and activate all their effects to net crazy advantage. With Unk setting up the grave and altair and deneb helping by adding to your advantage this card truly shines in this deck.

 

Call of the haunted

300px-CalloftheHaunted-BP03-EN-C-1E.png

 

Call is great especially if you start off with unk. It can help advance the first few plays or help you make a great push. Call will trigger your tellarknights so you can endphase into altair to get a special summon and once its on your turn you are free from the attack clause. It's great mst bait and if you're lucky you'll get a + from it if your opponent isn't careful.

 

300px-PhoenixWingWindBlast-PGLD-EN-GUR-1

 

Wing blast is great for a number of reasons. It can spin annoying cards back to the opponents top of the deck, or just give them a dead card to draw or both depending. What this also does for TK is set up our grave. Along with our first reason (Spinning) this card can be a safeguard to assure us that we will have a guaranteed card in grave to assure our altair plays go off, as well as coth plays and soul charge.

 

300px-BreakthroughSkill-BP03-EN-C-1E.png

 

We all know this negates cards but the fact that it can do it twice is really relevant. Along with stopping something annoying your opponent is doing on their turn you can knock out an annoying strategy they are doing or something that is preventing you from doing something (Winda) on your own turn. It's always good to have some backup support.

Essentially this is all I can do while I'm at work but I can add on to it later with an OCG section, extra deck, decklists, combos tips, and other cards that can be ran in tangent. But I figure that's enough to at least start a thread.

 

 

--------------------------------------

 

 

 

 

Does anyone else think that this deck has a serious chance of matching Shaddolls in the TCG? I personally think this deck may have an edge on Shaddolls in the TCG much more so than over the pond.

  1. RoTA is at 2 here. This means you are that much closer to opening with Deneb turn 1 or if you already have it you can choose to turn RoTA into any Satellar that you need in the given scenario. I don't think I really need to go in depth as to why RoTA is so good in a deck that revolves around having the correct combination of monsters in hand to create plays. Also RoTA allows you play tech cards such as Blade Knight.
  2. Torrential Tribute is at 1 here. Torrential Tribute is probably the most polarizing trap in the Shaddoll - Satellar match-up. It's a no brainer that a deck that focuses on swarming the field with 2-3 monsters every turn will be hurt by TT more so than a deck where all of its monsters float when going to grave. Torrential Tribute at 3 in the OCG skews the match-up towards Shaddolls heavily and also forces the Satellar player to play around it much harder than the other way around. To be fair, Compulsory is also at 3 in the OCG, which is very effective against Shaddolls but it also pretty tough to deal with as a Sateller player and I don't think the impact it has on the match-up is as big as the one TT has.
  3. Soul Charge exists. Soul Charge really benefits Sateller way more than it does for Shadoll. Since everything gets its effect when it's summoned in Satellerknights, you can easily trigger multiple effects simultaneously, and it's not hard to set-up the grave with cards such as Satellarknight Unukalhai which lets you dump a Satellar monster when it is summoned, Procyon which lets you discard a Satellarknight to draw a card, or by using the trap card which sends a Satellarknight you control to the graveyard to negate any card. Clearly this may not be as amazing against Shaddolls, but it still lets you drop a lot of monsters on board against Midrash in one turn, which can potentially give you plays for the following turn. Delteros also makes Soul Charge very safe and you can even Soul Charge back Delteros for a 2500 floater. Soul Charge also makes for very easy Rhongomiants with 4+ Xyz, which is just a god damn monster that nearly no deck can get over. I don't know if it's been confirmed for TCG but it's definitely more of a thing thanks to Soul Charge. (I didn't realize OCG had DRLG cards already - whoops)

 

Also although Midrash naturally is a big road block for this deck, Satellarknights have quite a few more inherent advantages against Shaddolls than other decks. The trap card actually allows for Satellerknights to use extra deck monsters since you can simply negate Shaddoll Fusion. It's also one of the best decks at rushing Dweller without losing card advantage.

They also have the ability to use this card pretty effectively:

300px-CompulsoryEscapeDevice-REDU-EN-C-U

 

This card synergizes very well with the whole archetype. There are a lot of instances where you can drop three monsters on the field all while retaining advantage but you may only need two to go for an xyz. Altair looping Deneb is essentially a +2 every turn so you can easily fulfill the "cost" for this card. It's probably one of the best slow grind cards for the archetype and really preys on the slow nature of the Shaddoll flip effects. It also has a very neat interaction with Shaddoll Fusion, exemplified by this ruling with Compulsory Evacuation Device:
 

 

If "Shaddoll Fusion" is activated and "Compulsory Evacuation Device" is activated in a Chain, since the opponent does not control a monster that was Special Summoned from the Extra Deck when the card resolves, you cannot perform a Fusion Summon using monsters from your Deck. (You must perform a Fusion Summon using monsters from your hand or your side of the field as Fusion Materials.)[3]


This basically means that you can spin one of your Xyz monsters (that you probably got for 1 card or for free) in response to Shaddoll Fusion and one of your opponent's monsters AND then they'll have to fuse from their hand or their side of the field. Clearly this is an extremely disruptive play that can result in a huge shift in tempo. Not to mention this card outs a Midrash that is already on the field.

 

Also another neat thing that may or may not work (need confirmation) is that it synergizes with the Quick-Play.

SatellarknightSkybridge-DUEA-EN-OP.png
 

 

Target 1 "tellarknight" monster you control; Special Summon 1 "tellarknight" monster with a different name from your Deck, and if you do, shuffle the targeted monster into the Deck. While the monster Special Summoned by this effect is face-up on the field, you cannot Special Summon monsters, except "tellarknight" monsters. You can only activate 1 "Satellarknight Skybridge" per turn.



If what I'm thinking is correct, you should be able to activate Escape Device then chain Satellerknight Skybridge to special summon a monster and then shuffle back a monster for free.


What do you guys think? Since there was already a Shaddoll and Yang Zing thread I thought it would only be appropriate to talk about the other archetype coming out in DUEA, an archetype that I think is certainly better than Yang Zing and possibly better than Shaddolls.

Just a slight nitpick; You would need to build the Compulse-Skybridge chain the opposite way round to get a free spin.

2 rotas and 1 Torrential tribute doesn't make up for no Shockmaster and no Star Seraphs.  

 

 

I don't know why you think that an extra copy of reinforcements of the army makes up for not having the best 3 material rank 4 ever printed and deck's entire reason to exist OCG side, Shockmaster.  

 

I'm sure people will develop builds but don't pretend there's any reason to expect this deck to see any sort of significant success.

Since the first of June, 53 different decks featuring card number 02273734 (Satellaknight Altair) have won Japanese local tournaments.

 

Exactly 5 of them didn't use Star Seraphs.

Along the lines of what Urthor said, have you seen Star Seraph Scepter + Star Seraph Sovereign into Stellarknight Delteros?

 

A 2 card combo lets you get out Delteros (who has Summon protection, floats Tellarknight), destroy 2 cards, and draw 3 cards.

 

Two other cards of lesser import, but still worth noting:

 

http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Heroic_Challenger_-_Assault_Halberd  

http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Number_86:_Heroic_Champion_-_Rhongomiant

 

This deck over there has a better Photon Thrasher, a better Excalibur/Acid Golem, etc.

 

-----------------------

 

If your entire premise is ROTA, you might as well play Evilswarm because they have 2 Castor, and it lets you XYZ under Midrash unlike this deck.

 

Evilswarm are much better here, because Sylvans are nonexistent in the OCG without Princessprout, so stopping them, plus Dragon Rulers, Mermails, Artifacts, Shadolls, etc.

 

I mean if you want to play a Rank 4 deck, I don't see why you would play this over them.

 

-----------------

 

Burning Abyss are intriguing as well, because PWWB, Karma Cut can take care of the Midrash problem.

o dam I forgot Karma cut existed

 

Burning Abyss will maindeck that card absolutely guarantee it.  And burning is better than you'd think.  

 

If Satellknight Altair didn't have the "you can only attack with tellaknight" restriction, and if there was a 2 material tellaknight XYZ, it would be a legitimate "tech" archtype, like Traptrix currently is, used solely because you just splash 3 altair 3 begal 3 vega in decks.  

 

As it is, Traptrix kinda does that job 10x better, AND there's the new traptrix trap.

No Shock Master, no Rhongomiant, no Star Seraphs. Feels like TCG really caught the shaft with the archetype. They got RotA to 2, which is probably just Konami's way of pushing Noble Knights a bit more, and significantly less stun for this list but I'm not sure that matters when they're missing their best stuff.

i think this deck will do better than shadolls in the tcg, even without shock master

 

I see little reason it will do better than Evilswarm, as a Rank 4 deck.

 

The Tellarknight resrictions are restrictive.

 

-----------------

 

Urthor, yeah, Burning is pretty good.

 

One of the things this deck has going for it is Battleguard Howling .

 

There probably is some kind of Burn alternative win condition with Alsahm and Fire Trooper (not LV 4), where you go into Heartlandraco or Gagaga Cowboy, or Photon Paladynamo.

Actually, this deck might be better than people give it credit for.

 

I can see a SA(T) deck where you have Unukalhai (1800 ATK), Traptrix and Moralltach all working with COTH, and you have Infernity Barriers thrown in, to go with the Sanctums.

 

You don't have to play it as an XYZ deck, just a heavy backrow deck (Battleguard Howling), where your cards float. Forbidden Lance puts even Deneb over Midrash, just play it with Wiretaps just like HAT, etc. Are Tellarknights better than the Hands, it's possible I would think.

 

Or something like Kagetokage or Blue Mountain Butterspy gives you DARKs for Chaos Sorcerer and BLS, who naturally beat Midrash.

I wrote up something about this and then accidentally logged myself out. A shorter version.

 

Tellars remind me a lot of Fire Fists, and the reasons Wolfbark got limited also apply to this deck.

 

Soul Charge becomes that much better when you can target the Tellars in addition to Myrmeleo. I think there might be viability to Kuribandit in that kind of deck because of the benefit of a decent grave and the improvement of Soul Charge/COTH.

 

Spacetime Trap Hole is actually a really really big deal and adds a ton of viability to playing a Traptrix based deck next set. It's such a good counter to Shadolls.

 

Your mid-late game card advantage is just insane between Altair and Dionaea

 

Heroic Assault Halberd is an option to consider as another good target for ROTA that also gains card advantage on its own and allows for more rank 4 plays.

this deck struggles so much vs shadoll its not even funny

 

u have to deal with shadoll fusion by having the solemn trap (which they can bait out easily and also tributes ur monster) or vanitys and preying they dont have the mst

 

then theres 3 super poly which basically shits on u 

 

no shock master and star seraphs makes this deck so much slower and weaker, it basically relies on altair to make any big plays but gets wrecked by shadolls

This is an OCG exclusive. fyi.

 

The problem though with SAT or whatever, is you might as well be playing Constellar Artifacts.

 

If the big selling point of Sats is Honest and Constellar Omega, which it is, due to the fact that Spacetime Trap Hole, Constellars can do it too. They can get Paladynamo as well.

 

And Pleiades who can bounce Sets and Shadoll Fusions without them floating (although both get hurt by Super Poly).

 

Going Dire Wolf so as to not leave an Extra Deck monster out is a possible option.

 

------------

 

But Stellarnova Alpha is the card we wished Tombs of Necrovalley was. Had Ragnazero not wiped Gravekeepers off the map :(

Aren't we getting the ocg imports in the mega tin about two weeks after the packs release? So if thats accurate we'd have the star seraphs and everything just not shock master. If that's true of course.

I've tested the deck, and it essentially fails for the reasons posted here: it just isn't explosive enough without Shock Master/Number 80/Star Seraphs. RotA to 2 is pretty much a slap in the face because it does so little to help the deck.

 

I've been testing something with summoner monk and instant fusion to try and make up for everything the deck loses in the TCG, but it just doesn't compare to a turn 1 shock master.

ok so this is probably going to be seen as my copycat attempt at a victor post but i wanted to take the opportunity to bring this card up and hear what you guys have to say
 

AmazonessChainMaster-SP1-EN-UR-LE.jpg.
 

obviously with two reinforcement of the army it becomes more likely to open up with satellarknight deneb first turn. typically people search altair to get the rank 4 engine going and loop deneb into altair. in the mirror match both amazoness chain master and deneb have equal attack points, so you can crash this into an oppossing deneb and snatch the altair they more than likely have in their hand.

this serves multiple purposes. it takes away momentum from the opponent after they get the +1 from deneb turn 1, converting their advantage into your own. Snatching their altair means they need specif cards to get going from heer such as soul charge, call of the haunted or access another altair to actually get going, while your own rank 4 engine is started up if you have a satelarknight of your own. this can be paired with satelarknight unukalhai to access deneb and get going as well.

even if they have another deneb they need to spend their following turn summoning it, and early game you would have another 5 cards, in which ideally you would have some kind of trap that could deal with it such as breakthrough skill or the like. this sets them back even more and just gives you so much more time to put pressure if they don’t have something going or you happen to have some traps to keep them at bay

bluffing a fire or ice hand with this also seems real, and looking at their hand is just really good in for information in general since you know how to use your hand optimally from there

obviously there flaws to the card that could cause it to miss competitive play. it can be slow to use passively considering you have to set it and wait, takes up your normal summon which is obviously important for this deck and usually reserved for altair, so mid to late game this could just sit there dead while you counter their field with the xyz plays. only working against the mirror means this card takes up spaces in the side but doesn’t actually function against other deck so maybe its not flexible enough to see play. its also a target for dimensional prison if you go aggro with it, which I understand some people are considering because it removes midrash quickly and cleanly. furthermore early game you need to access your own deneb to really reach its full potential, and unfortunately this is not a given.

 another problem I suppose is that this card just dies to stellarknight delteros if you set it, but going aggro means you lose 2500 life from the battle and effect cost, and playing multiple soul charges, as well as quite possibly needing to take a direct attack from an xyz on the chin the following turn means that this card could lose you a significant amount of life. It also doesn’t deal with established fields, nor does it stop them establishing either, both of which are kinda important in the mirror since looping altair means there is always pressure to respond to their field and this just sits dead when you need a card that does something right now.

I just think this could make the grind game better for the user considering that you have access to four instant rank 4s from your three altairs and the one you might have taken, while they should only have two left, and considering you loop them with Deneb this is just really neat.

im interested to hear other peoples thought on how practical this card is because even though you need another satellarknight to do something with the taken card, stealing their altair is just a kick in the teeth

also i understand that i have done a lot of assumption with them summoning deneb and searching altair but i feel they can access deneb easily in this deck and altair is just the best search from it so it would make sense for them to search it often so i'd like to think there is reason behind what i am saying

Unfortunately, it's bad for a lot of reasons:

 

1) Needs to die by battle, or needs to attack/crash, when more people will be playing DPrison for Shadolls

2) 1500 LP is a lot to waste on a card that doesn't advance your win condition or win you the game.

3) Can just play Mind Crush, better options available if you want to hit the hand

 

4) Mirror match is not a concern

 

It's like the people who suggested playing Giant Germ to crash into Agent Earth, Tour Guide + Sangan, back in the day.

I don't think it's a good idea to count this deck out right off the bat.  Okay, so they don't have shock master or star seraphs . . . neither do shaddolls.  This deck is still super consistent and can put a lot of pressure on board very early.  This deck is still fine.

No they're fucked lol.  I'm saying just because they don't have shock master doesn't mean their not a good deck to play.  Not saying Shaddolls aren't good or that stellas are better than shaddoll. Stellas just got play differently in shaddoll match up.

This deck right out the gate is the best Rank 4 engine in the game, and the Rank 4 Engine is probably the strongest and most versatile of any, even without Seraphs/ShockMaster the deck is no joke. This deck really can compete evenly with anything not named Shaddoll, but you have to be able to answer Midrash every turn or it's a hard win.

I just built this deck for the first time and literally didn't drop a single game against my friend playing Shaddoll out of maybe 12~ games. Maybe this deck isn't shitty, afterall.

Soul Charge should be @ three and I definitely think that Unu is worth playing a long with multiple copies of COTH, it helps you beat Shaddolls a lot easier when you can put a summon on the board during their End Phase.

 

I'm really not a fan of the Spell however I think Unu and COTH are better cards to play and accomplish similar things along side Soul Charge.

Skybridge is terrible without a 2 mat Exceed for Tellarknights to go into and avoid the lockdown on Special Summons from anything else in the deck.

 

This may change in time, but we have to wait for the next set after NECH to find out if that is going to happen or not.
