YuGiOh: Structure Deck – Albaz Strike Review

YuGiOh Structure Deck Albaz Strike cover

Albaz Strike is one of the best Structure Decks in recent history, containing a powerful, easy upgrade archetype with staple cards that are useful in pretty much any other deck in the game. The value is exceptional, even for those new to the game.

The Albaz cards in this deck are used heavily in one of the current Tier 1 meta strategies Branded Despa, which was both the most prevalent deck of Top Cut but also won both YCS Bogota and YCS Guadalajara, the two biggest events since the release of this Structure Deck.

Deck Pairing

I would recommend pairing the deck with the Despia and Branded cards released in Burst of Destiny. Aluber the Jester of Despia is a great Normal Summon for the Deck allowing you to search any of your Branded Spell or Trap cards. This can include your Branded Fusion for Fusion plays or Branded Lost to prevent your opponent from stopping your Fusion plays.

You can also splash in the Adventurer engine, a powerful set of cards from The Grand Creators that allows you to put out an omni-negate before you start your plays, increasing your board presence and insulating your combos from hand-traps.

Pot Of Extravagance

Even if you don’t want to play Branded Despia, the structure deck contains many staple cards that are powerful in other strategies. Pot of Extravagance is especially useful in back row decks, allowing you to draw two cards in return for six random cards in your extra deck.

Dark Ruler No More is a Spell that negates the effect of all of your opponent's monsters, allowing you to play despite your opponents board presence, as a result this is one of the best defensive cards available. You even get hand traps from this deck. Effect Veiler and Ghost Ogre are both extremely effective in the meta, stopping monster effects and destroying monsters respectively.

These staples are also powerful if you choose to play the structure deck by itself, it has been piloted by strong players, notably by Revz Cards - a widely regarded YouTuber. Since April he has placed highly with three copies of the structure deck at multiple local tournaments. Here is his Deck Profile as well as a combo guide that is really helpful in learning how the deck works.
