Fusion strategies for the new format
by Dark Necrophi, Oct 21, 2005

Now that morph is restricted and our beloved sheep have been restricted to one (thus limiting the playability of Summoner of Illusions) we must turn to other methods for successfully summoning fusion monsters. Yes, Cyber Stein immediately comes to mind, but unless you are playing an OTK style deck, he isn’t worth it.

How then, can you manage to summon your fusions, keep from losing major card advantage and still have an attack-based deck with great searchability? Well, the answer has been right under our collective noses since Flaming Eternity. The monsters of which I am speaking are the hex sealed fusions. There are some duelists who have already discovered the potential of these monsters, some before the current banlist. If you have/had already discovered their usefulness in competitive play, props to you.

Some might say, that the hex fusions aren’t any good, since you have to have both one of the fusion materials on the field + the required hex fusion, to summon the fusion monsters. They would argue that getting both on the field at the same time would be extremely difficult, and the monsters would be run-over/hit my monster removal way before you could pull it off. However, it is a lot easier than they think. In fact, you can make a deck with swiss army knife searchability that can summon fusions utilizing the hexes; and it could be competitive as well. I speak of the elemental searchers, which happen to be the only cards that keep the hex fusions from being total garbage.

Here’s how it works: summon/set an elemental searcher, when you’re opponent destroys it, search out either the necessary hex fusion (if you have the fusion material in your hand) or the necessary fusion material (if you have the hex fusion in your hand) on your turn, summon the other card, and voila!

Another fun trick, is to special summon Cyber Dragon, normal summon light hex and then fuse them into Cyber Twin Dragon. This particular strategy is probably the most competitive of the hex fusion strategies. Well, I think so, anyway. I know people who have tested these ideas out and they have worked well, however I have never tested any of it out myself (damn me being poor) so I don’t know for sure which strategy works best.

I could explain a myriad of strategies and such, involving the hex fusions, but I think you will be able to get enough ideas from the following decks:

In closing, just give the hex fusions a try, they can be good in competitive play, they just have to be used properly. They are also very fun to use, at least that’s what I have heard from those who have tested them. I haven’t gotten the chance yet myself.

And for those of you who are wondering, I am working on an introduction for my column, but I haven’t really thought one up yet (been too busy). I know I kind of stopped replying to the thread on the forums involving my column, and I apologize for that, I just didn’t have time to reply to everyone. But I am considering everything said, and I hope to include several of the ideas mentioned in that thread, in future articles.

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed it.
