Tips on Making a Great Crystal Beast Deck by Derek
Crystal Beasts are a new and interesting
deck type. After experimenting with them
for several weeks, I now know their
strengths and weaknesses.
Strengths: Monsters which can turn into
magic cards when destroyed. Support like
Crystal Abundance, Card Value, Crystal
Blessing, Crystal Beacon, Hamon, and Rainbow
City make them deadly. The monsters have
effects which work with each other.
Weaknesses: Your magic and trap can be
clogged quickly. And you will easily find
yourself out-swarmed, wishing you can summon
twice per turn.
Aim of the Deck: Special Summon as many
Crystal Beasts as you can in the magic and
trap card zone and use it's support to your
Crystal Beast - Ruby Carbuncle
This card is weak in strength, but it still
has the universal effect of Crystal Beasts.
Also, this can help Crystal Beast decks
swarm. How many that is ran is up to you.
1 or 2 should be good. 3 might be a bit too
Crystal Beast - Amehyst Cat
This card is a Crystal Beast. That's all it
can be credited for. Using Rescue Cat with
this is not worth it. You should run none
of these in your deck. Maybe one, if you
want to. But, don't expect anything
groundbreaking with this card.
Crystal Beast - Emerald Turtle
The turtle sets a good defense. Not good
enough for cards such as Cyber Dragon, but
good. It's effect is okay if you want to
save your life points. This is a good card,
considering Crystal Beasts don't have much
support monster-wise. Run 2-3 of these.
Crystal Beast - Topaz Tiger
It's a beat stick and a Crystal Beast. It
works. Run 2 or 3 of these.
Crystal Beast - Sapphire Pegasus
This is as great as it gets for beasts. It
gives the deck MASSIVE SPEED. It is a
Crystal Beast and a nice 1800 beat stick.
Run 3 of these or else.
Crystal Beast - Amber Mammoth
It's a Crystal Beast and a beat stick.
Always good. And once in a while, it could
serve as a protector. 2 or 3 should be good
in a deck.
Crystal Beast - Cobalt Eagle
It can help you in cloggy situations, but
it's nothing breathtaking. Use one at max.
It's a good card. Drawing 2 cards is nice,
but this is a Crystal Beast deck. Not a
Perfect Circle deck. Using 3 of these, just
because it sounds like Pot of Greed is a BIG
MISTAKE. All you need is one. Two, if so.
You need to save your Crystal Beasts for
more important things.
I know it seems like Smashing Ground, but
I'd skip it altogether. Saving your Crystal
Beasts to blow up the field and swarm the
opponent is much nicer than a -2/-1.
This adds speed to the deck. Use one or
two. It will help you.
Adding 2 Crystal Beasts? OUCH! That
hurts! Use only one because Crystal Beast
decks don't have a full graveyard of
It give the user plenty of options to do
with the Beasts. I'd use two. No Terras.
No Resorts. Two is plenty. It isn't a
staple Field Spell like Necrovalley is.
It feels like Chaos all over. Blow up the
field and summon your Crystal Beasts to
attack directly. In a deck with speed, this
will rule. Use 2. It WINS GAMES.
You already have Beacon which does the same
thing, but better. Why this?
Not needed. Too situational. Terraforming
is a smarter choice.
Gem Flash Energy
That's up to you, but I wouldn't use it. It
clogs the field.
Magna Slash Gravi Crush Dragon
Don't use these. You have better uses for
your Beasts. If need be, use Zaborg or
Mobius. Any good tribute, but these.
Hamon Lord of Striking Thunder
Why not use the beasts to summon a god?
Only use one though.
Helps you when your backfield is cloggy and
gains you life points. Not bad.
Gain 500 ATK for each Crystal Beast, why
Fill your graveyard up for Crystal Blessing.
A card in Tactical Evolution which lets you
summon twice. It will help the deck's weak
Mobius the Frost Monarch
Since you don't want to use Heavy Storm, you
might want to use this.
Build up field power.
Here is a build, I would personally
recommend to somebody who wants to take
their beasts to a tournament.
