Three iconic Level 4 Spellcasters from Goat Format join forces to prevent your opponent from using Spells. This wild strategy makes use of Secret Village of the Spellcasters and attempts to impose a pair of floodgate effects to control the speed with which your opponent is able to play! Prevent your opponent from banishing cards with Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer, break through set Spells and Traps with Breaker the Magical Warrior and recruit allies with Gravekeeper’s Spy!
Secret Village is one of the main floodgates played to bar your opponent from activating powerful spells such as Heavy Storm or Book of Moon. To ensure this effect does not harm the user most Spellcasters played are quite strong in terms of either ATK or DEF. Additionally, the ability to play three copies of Breaker ensures that your Normal Summon can often trade well by breaking a non-reactive backrow and running into a set Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter. Spy-Descendant is a very common combo in Edison Format and makes even more sense in a focused Spellcaster deck which requires the ability to remove monsters from the board. Kycoo prevents powerful Monsters such as Blackwing - Vayu, the Emblem of Honor, Mezuki, and Destiny HERO - Malicious from posing a threat, and even grants you the ability to banish such threats when dealing damage! Lyla, Lightsworn Sorceress acts as another copy of Breaker while also helping set up the Graveyard for Dark Armed Dragon plays. To help prevent your Spellcasters from being destroyed, Defender, the Magical Knight, and Pitch-Back Power Stone are played. There aren’t a whole lot of great Spellcaster Tuners, so Synchro plays are most easily made by playing Brain Control and Mind Control to steal opponent’s Tuners. With most of your plays revolving around your Normal Summon, this deck benefits from Main decking Royal Oppression to apply pressure to opponents who attempt to solve the problem of Secret Village with a Black Rose Dragon bomb.
Strengths and Weaknesses
Secret Village offers almost complete control over your opponent’s ability to enjoy the game at a steep cost. If you time the activation of Secret Village incorrectly such that they can chain a Book of Moon to set your only face-up Spellcaster, with no means of putting another on board, your Secret Village could very quickly become your prison... at least until the following turn when you should have another Normal Summon ready to go. The other downside is that nearly every Monster you play loses to Bottomless Trap Hole on the Normal Summon, leaving you with few comeback options due to a lack of extenders. Finally, the lack of good Tuners to help access cards in the Extra Deck means you will easily become outpaced by decks capable of putting a single Monster on board who can beat over your Spellcasters.
