 Trading Card Game Tips from fans

I don't know about you, but I'd like to see Cyber Dragons used in Cyber Dragon Decks, not as over-used cookie-cutter tech! Zane Truesdale happens to be my favourite character from Yu-Gi-Oh GX, and I've tried to build a character deck like his before. But since we have only a few of his main cards right now, it's rather hard. However, two sets from now (the one after Enemy of Justice), Power of the Duelist will be released. And along with it, Zane's ultimate monster.

Now what the h*ll is this guy talking about!? We already ave it, it's Cyber End Dragon! That may be one of his ultimate monsters, but the true Zane fans know that it's not. Chimeratech Over Dragon will be released along with its fusion card Overload Fusion in Power of the Duelist. And I want it, Chimeratech Over Dragon is the best perk to running a Cyber Dragon Deck. Here it is:

Chimeratech Over Dragon
Attribute: Dark
Type: Machine/Fusion/Effect
Level: 9
ATK: ?
DEF: ?
Text: "Cyber Dragon" + "1 or more Machine-Type Monsters"

This card cannot be Special Summoned except by Fusion Summon. When this card is Special Summoned successfully, send all cards except this card from your side of the field to the Graveyard. This card's original ATK and DEF become the number of Fusion Material monsters used to Fusion Summon this card x 800 points. This card can attack a number of times equal to the number of Fusion Material monsters used to Fusion Summon this card.

Cool huh? This would be rather difficult to pull off as deadly as Zane did if that was it, but it's not. Zane used Overload Fusion to Special Summon this guy. While it doesn't mention him in its text, it clearly is made for him, here it is too:

Overload Fusion
Type: Normal Spell
Text: Remove from play, from your side of the field or your Graveyard, Fusion Material monsters that are listed on a Dark Machine-Type Fusion Monster Card, and Special Summon that Fusion Monster from your Fusion Deck (This Special Summon is treated as a Fusion Summon).

Wow! Told 'ya, it doesn't specifically say "Chimeratech Over Dragon". It works the same way as Dragon's Mirror, but only for 2 monsters: Chimeratech Over Dragon, and unintentionally Gatling Dragon.

Zane used this card as a last resort. He had nothing but Cyber Dragon on his field (or Proto, I can't remember), he played this, Fusion Cyber Dragon with like 5 other Machines in his Graveyard and unleashed a wave of around 6 attacks with Chimeratech Over Dragon at 4800 Attack Points! Is that one of the ways on your list of how you want to finish an opponent off in your Yu-Gi-Oh career or what?

Now, I can't wait for all of Zane's cards to come out before at least attempting to make his deck. Now, these cards are not official yet, and may not be as they might be too powerful. But let's just say, for instance, that the spoilers are right. Here would be a decklist of Zane's deck:

Monsters x17

Cyber Barrier Dragon

Cyber Dragon x3

Cyber Giraffe

Cyber Laser Dragon

Cyber Phoenix

Heavy Mech Support Platform x3

Kaiser Glider

Metallizing Parasite - Lunatite

Proto Cyber Dragon x3

Shining Angel x2

Fusion Monsters

Chimeratech Over Dragon

Cyber End Dragon

Cyber Twin Dragon

Magic Cards x16

Creature Swap


Different Dimension Capsule x2

Future Fusion*

Heavy Storm

Limiter Removal

Machine Duplication

Monster Reborn

Mystical Space Typhoon

Overload Fusion

Photon Generator Unit


Pot of Greed

Power Bond x2

Trap Cards x7

Attack Reflector Unit

Call of the Haunted

Rare Metalmorph x2

Ray of Hope*

Trap Jammer x2

I'd like to thank Wikipedia.org for the decklist, it has one for all of the characters of Yu-Gi-Oh! Go check it out now...Now that you're back, you see that Wikipedia doesn't list whether there are doubles or not, so I had to guess. I saw Zane use Power Bond twice in one duel, very far apart, without using Magician of Faith or anything else to get the first back, so I figure he has 2.

Anyway, the * means the card isn't explained yet or isn't used by Zane. Future Fusion is cool too, and it also comes out in Power of the Duelist. Here it is:

Future Fusion

Type: Continuous Magic Card

Text: Select 1 Fusion Monster from your Fusion Deck. Send Fusion Material Monsters for the selected Fusion Monster from your deck to your Graveyard. At your 2nd Standby Phase after this card's activation, Special Summon that Fusion Monster to your side of th field (This Special Summon is treated as a Fusion Summon). When this card is destroyed or removed from the field, the monster is destroyed. If the monster is destroyed or removed from the field, this card is also destroyed.

Also cool, Zane uses this to Special Summon Cyber End Dragon after returning all 3 Cyber Dragons from his Graveyard to his deck with Cybernetic Fusion Support. Unfortunately, that doesn't come out in Power of the Duelist as far as I know. So I subbed in Ray of Hope for this combo, it'll do for now.

Not too shabby these new cards eh? Since it's treated as a Fusion Summon, if the card makes it to the 2nd Standby Phase and gets the monster out before it's destroyed you can revive the monster because it was properly Fusion Summoned. Unless it's Chimeratech Over Dragon or another Fusion Monster that can't be brought back (like Dark Paladin). But aside from that, you get a practically free Fusion Monster in 2 turns because you send the monsters from your deck to the Graveyard.

This is the kind of support Fusion Decks need, more free fusions. And with a little protection (Curse of Royal, Judgement of Anubis, and Magic Reflector help with this), you could bust out that Cyber End Dragon and beat on the opponent by your 3rd turn. The decklist above is using as many of Zane's cards as possible (that exist anyway), I wouldn't recommend using Metalizing Parasite - Lunatite or Kaiser Glider in your version.

This Zane Deck is terribly unfocussed, but there are a few ways you could go. You could use the Machine Duplication with Heavy Mech Support Platform way to make your Cyber Dragons almost invincible. You could dust off old copies of Ray of Hope and Curse of Royal to keep using Future Fusion and bust out those Cyber Twin and End Dragons repeatedly, especially since Pot of Avarice is just asking to be abused with Future Fusion in a deck like this. You could even go Traditional and combine Overload Fusion with Painful Choice and bust out a 5600 or 6400 ATK Chimeratech Over Dragon with 7 or 8 attacks every single duel! Thank you for reading this article.
