I. Monsters


Trickstar Candina
Light Fairy / Effect
Lv4 1800/400
(1) When this card is Normal Summoned: You can add 1 “Trickstar” card from your Deck to your hand.
(2) Each time your opponent activates a Spell/Trap Card, inflict 200 damage to your opponent immediately after it resolves.

This is your Stratos. An obvious and simple combo is to either add Lilybell or Lycoris and use their respective special summoning effects

 

Trickstar Lilybell
Light Fairy / Effect
LV2 800/2000
You can only use this card name’s (1) effect once per turn.
(1) If this card is added to your hand, except by drawing it: You can Special Summon this card from your hand.
(2) This card can attack directly.
(3) When this card inflicts battle damage to your opponent: You can target 1 “Trickstar” monster in your Graveyard; add it to your hand.

This card combos with both your Candina and Lightstage either of which will trigger the special summoning effect. Part of the reason some lists run 2 of this card is that the 3rd effect of Monster Reborning a Trickstar can come in handy to reextend your combos after you've burned a lot of resources. Ironically since there is no restriction on Lilybell triggering it's own effect if you had a normal summoned Lilybell on field or had it from a previous turn and both a Lilybell and Lycoris in grave you could attack add and trigger Lilybell attack with 2nd Lilybell add Lycoris send back one of the Lilybells ending the combo as the 1st effect is once per turn. 

 

Trickstar Lycoris
Light Fairy / Effect
LV3 1600/1200
(1) During either player’s turn: You can reveal this card in your hand to your opponent, then target 1 face-up “Trickstar” monster you control, except “Trickstar Lycoris”; Special Summon this card, and if you do, Return that target to the hand.
(2) Each time your opponent adds a card(s) from their Deck to their hand, inflict 200 damage to them for each card.

 

Trickstar Narkissus
Level 4 LIGHT Fairy-Type Effect Monster
ATK 1000

III. Spells


Trickstar Lightstage
Field Spell
(1) When this card is activated: You can add 1 “Trickstar” monster from your Deck to your hand.
(2) Once per turn: You can target 1 Set card in your opponent’s Spell & Trap Zones; while this card is in the Field Zone, that card cannot be activated until the End Phase, and during the End Phase, your opponent chooses to either activate it, or send it to the Graveyard.

IV. Traps


Trickstar Reincarnation
Trap Normal
(1) Banish as many cards from your opponent’s hand as possible, and if they do, they draw the same amount of cards from their Deck.
(2) You can banish this card from your Graveyard, then target 1 “Trickstar” monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon it.

This card + Droll & Lock is literally a win condition on its own leaving your opponent with no hand if you time it correctly. You search this off of Candina which is searchable off the Lightstage which is itself searchable off of Terraforming. Meaning odds are if you draw Droll & Lock you can search Reincarnation if it's not already in hand.

I really love this deck even though playing it kind of makes me feel like a bit of a meanie. The way they almost encourage your opponent to not play the game is awful in that fun kind of way. I haven't gotten to play enough of them to be a proficient player but I look forward to playing with them a lot in the future!

At least you're not one of the people calling them "the new chain burn."

 

I fell in love with this deck the moment I saw them. I just hate seeing people running Handtrap.dek with a Trickstar engine and claiming it's Trickstar. Granted, the meta sucks enough to have to resort to such a deck, but still.

Maybe you shouldn't be listing "sounding smart" as one of your interests.

Don't see why not. It's accurate.

I guess that, just like with yugioh, you don't have to be good at something to call it an interest.

Well, sounding isn't the same as "being"

You literally just listed cards and decks without any explanation of anything. What is this?

"Under construction" Maybe I'm being a little ambitious but eventually I want the OP to be a full resource in and of itself. Be thankful somebody is doing it though. This is literally one of the better decks of the format besides Spyrals of course and has been good for a while and yet we didn't have a thread.

I appreciate you making the effort to make this, but what I was getting at is that there’s a reason why there’s a quality control thread and why people don’t just post discussion threads out of nowhere.

I would have asked Victor for some help if he was around. Tbh I'm kinda worried he was a big part of what was keeping the discussion from completely dying off and I'll be honest now I'm legitimately worried he might have died himself. 

 

If anybody knows anything please do post something. Despite the fact that he was a retired mod and not actively playing the format he was the heart of the section.

If you want to get gimmicky then Candina + chain summoning is also an OTK. Although, at this stage everyone has moved on from it mostly.

The only problem is that it's not competitively viable.

Prague 2.0 says otherwise. trickstar was like 2nd most played deck behind Spyral with i think 7 out of the top 32 playing it.

 

anyway it's certainly a strong deck rn i know a few of my local Pros are testing it out for the future, it's still not amazing with the right counters and outs. i mean for god's sake i went 2-1 against it with Fire King.  but if you arent maining a ton of outs like i was (mistake, warning, strike etc) then the burn can take you down fairly quickly. 

 

i've seen some guys at my locals tech in stuff like Secret Barrel and Dice Jar to try for a more turbo burn oriented deck but i think stun works better, reincarnation + droll is a wincon on its own (and with the upcoming droll reprint more people will have it)
