YGO Deck: Gishki (Ritua)



Gishki's have always been a point of interest for me. The artwork on these cards is really got me. So after going around Shriek and seeing Gishki deck, I thought "Why not?".



After modifying and testing it a little I came up with a list that suits me. All the Gishki stuff will link you to the card page for the specific card on Yugioh Wikia. Keep that in mind if you want to check the specifics of a card. So here it is:



Monsters: 22


x2 Vision Gishki 
x3 Gishki Abyss
x3 Gishki Shadow 
x3 Gishki Beast
x3 Gishki Erial
x2 Deep Sea Diva
x2 Genex Ally Birdman
x2 Evigishki Gustkrake 
x2 Evigishki Tetrogre 


Spells: 12


x1 Heavy Storm
x1 Monster Reborn
x1 Dark Hole
x1 Book of Moon
x1 Mind Control 
x2 Gishki Ceremonial Mirror
x2 Mystical Space Typhoon
x3 Salvage


Traps: 6


x2 Solemn Warning
x2 Mind Crush
x1 Trapdust Shoot
x1 Compulsory Evacuation Device


Extra: 15


Xyz: 7


x1 Gachi Gachi Gantestu 
x1 Number 17: Leviathan Dragon
x1 Leviair the Sea Dragon
x1 Number 39: Utopia 
x1 Steelswarm Roach
x1 Gemknight Pearl
x1 Vylon Disigma


Synchro: 8

x1 Ally of Justice Catastor
x1 T.G. Hyper Librarian
x1 Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier
x1 Gungnir, Dragon of the Ice Barrier
x1 Black Rose Dragon
x1 Stardust Dragon
x1 Scrap Dragon
x1 Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier

     The point of the deck is to spam Xyz monsters and Synchro monsters while getting the necessary pieces to drop your Ritual Monsters. Tetrogre is a 2600 beater so he gets over Stardust and other problem cards, his effect is as useful as Gustkrake which lets you knock a card from your Opponent's hand back to the deck and reveals another for a free shoot with Mind Crush.
     Gishki Beast is well....A BEAST! The ability to let you grab a monster and make an insta-Rank 4 Xyz is key in the deck. If you don't happen to have Erial, Beast or Shadow in grave, you can grab a Vision Gishki/Gishki Abyss bounce with Birdman, make Gungnir, and start blowing stuff up, while still being able to use the effects of your bounced monster should you not use it as fodder for Gungnir. Alternatively you could bounce your G. Beast for later use and make a 5 Star Synchro with the monster you revived
     Gishki Shadow and Vision Gishki are also key components as they lets you thin your deck so you don't dead draw those Ritual Cards and, through there effects, they allow them selves to be used as a whole tribute for the Ritual Summon of a WATER monster (Hint: All Gishki Monsters are WATER!).
     Gishki Abyss let's you nab a Gishki (with 1000 or less DEF) from your deck to set up. Say you have a hand containing Abyss and Beast, Summon Abyss and search for your Shadow. You then pitch the Shadow for your Mirror, which sets you up to summon Beast and get a Rank 4 next turn. You could wait to search with Shadow's effect, but I would do it straight away that way if you get Mind Crush'd you thin'd your deck a bit. Gishki Erial also lets you nab any Gishki monster from your deck, but requires it to be set. However, since it has an 1800 DEF it will get easily trampled by opposing monsters.
     The Tuners (Birdman and Diva) let you access Synchro monsters, which is always nice. Diva also allows you to make an insta-Gachi Gachi Gantestu to boast your monster past opposing Scrap Dragons and Trishulas or use it to bring your Vision to field for a Ritual Summon, then make an 8 Star Synchro with your Ritual.
     The deck is also crazy fast. With searching powers of your Vision/Shadow/Abyss/Erial, you get to your combo pieces a lot faster. With all the searching, you'd think "Mind Crush and Rai-Oh must be a problem ,right?". Not at all. The deck has come into some contact with Rai-Oh, but you can easily beat out that Rai-oh with a Ritual monster. Since Ritual Spells start a chain, Rai-Oh can't negate the Ritual Monsters summon. Mind Crush really doesn't hurt the deck because you run triple Salvage anyways. If they shoot something out of your hand with Mind Crush, just nab it back.
    Overall, the deck runs well and is fast enough to go toe-to-toe with the format's meta. So I think I'll rap this up here. Leave suggestions for the deck and decks you would like to see down below.
