Deck Discussion Wrote By: Casey
Mecha Phantom Beast is a new subtype of the Phantom Beast archtype that debuts in Lord Of The Tachyon Galaxy. They revolve around summoning Mecha Phantom Beast Tokens (Wind/Level 3/ATK 0/DEF 0) to alter their levels, protect themselves, & activate their effects. The tokens can be summoned in either position. Also if you have at least 1 token of any kind out & a mass destruction card like Dark Hole, Needle Ceiling, or Torrential Tribute is activated by either player then your token & non Mecha Phantom Beast monsters are destroyed but the rest survive. They are all Wind, Machine-Type monsters that are planes modeled after animals. They are able to make rank 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, & 10 XYZs from their level altering effects. There is 1 thing you must keep in mind when playing with or against this deck: Which type of token you have determines which effects you get. If you have a Mecha Phantom Beast Token then you will get all 3 effects (level altering, indestructibility, & a monster specific effect). If you have a token like a Rose Token out then you only get the indestructibility & monster specific effects. Remember that for later on.
Dark Hole/Needle Ceiling/Torrential Tribute - As stated before, just 1 token saves your field.
Pot Of Duality - This deck needs a little speed to get going & this helps so much.
Machine Duplication - Only run this on the off chance you run 3 Ray-Stealth & 3 Cyber Valley.
Terraforming/Orichalcos - If you run Black Garden then you need Terra. Orichalcos stops your opponent from beating over your tokens making a soft lock.
Token Stampede - Makes your tokens slightly harder to kill.
Gorz - Stops big pushes & it summons a TOKEN.
Gozen/Rivalry - All the main decked monsters are wind/machine, but be careful because a mistimed activation could kill your extra deck.
CyDra/CFD/System Down - Great to make the mirror match 1 sided.
There arent too many combos you'll see with this deck. Mega-Raptor will be at the heart of all of them though. Here are the 2 most common combos:
Normal Summon Mecha Phantom Beast Mega-Raptor
Activate Black Garden
Your opponent summons a monster.
Black Garden activates halving its ATK & summoning a token to your field.
Raptor effect activates summoning a token to your field
Black Garden activates & summons a token to your opponent's field.
Mega-Raptor face-up on the field
Normal Summon Tether-Wolf/Flip Summon Ham-Strato
Raptor summons a token
Playing Against Mecha Phantom Beasts
Im not going to say this deck has any 1 matchup that is an autowin unless you vs. something that summons tokens to your field. The truth is that this deck isnt going to manhandle anything because it takes skill. You can beat any deck as long as you play smart. 1 misplay could kill you.
Inzektors - If they get going early they can destroy all your tokens before they go for your monsters making the tokens useless. Obviously this isnt the only deck they beat so dont feel too bad.
