CARDS: YU-GI-OH! TCG Onslaught!


Dueling with the new Onslaught of the Fire Kings Structure Deck is a lot like a one-sided game of “king of the hill”. You bring out Fire King High Avatar Garunix, and then it obliterates everything that tries to depose it. Nothing can destroy Garunix without suffering terrible repercussions, and that’s what the Fire King strategy is all about!

Each Fire King has an effect that activates when it’s destroyed. Garunix has two! And while normally your opponent will have no problems with trying to destroy your monsters, they may need a little encouragement in this case. And failing that, you can just do it yourself! Onslaught of the Fire Kings (the card, not the Deck) can Summon a Fire King from your Deck and then destroy it during the End Phase, triggering its effect. Or, you can pull the old switcheroo with Circle of the Fire Kings. It’ll let you destroy a Fire King on your field and revive one from the Graveyard at the same time.

When Garunix is destroyed by a card effect, it comes back during the next Standby Phase and reduces all other monsters to ashes. So you want to have as many ways to destroy it yourself as possible. Bonfire Colossus from Cosmo Blazer can be Special Summoned if you have a FIRE monster and destroys two of your FIRE monsters when you do so. This sets up Garunix to return on the next turn and fan the flames of destruction all over your opponent’s monsters.

But that’s not all! There’s also a Trap called Kickfire that builds up power when your monsters are destroyed by card effects. Build up enough power, and you can use Kickfire to wipe out your opponent’s Life Points in one shot! Destroying your own monsters may seem like a weird way to win, but if you’re the type of Duelist who’s willing to do whatever it takes, Onslaught of the Fire Kings is right up your alley!

Onslaught of the Fire Kings Structure Deck is out now! Pick it up today!

Will SJ Alpha cover the next Forbidden and Limited list for the Yu-gi-oh TCG also? It would be a great article and update for players who are subscribed (of which I am sure there are many!).

i don't get to play as often as i use to but this deck does impress me it will be hard to top this deck inless your opponent runs remove from play cards or something quicker.
it will also be hard for konami to top themselves on this .Maybe a Structure Deck at some point but this is my favorite of the Structure Decks so far.

The next Promo Card after Number 88 should be Fire King Avatar Yaksha.
Some people want BOTFF-Chicken for the next promo card, but Fire Fists are doing perfectly well enough that they don't need Chicken to fill them out. With Yaksha, the Fire King deck can also thrive and give a bit more variety to those who may want to play pro. And if you wanted to combine Fire Fists with Fire Kings, Yaksha would be the better choice over Chicken, as it's a Level 4 Beast-Warrior with 200 DEF, and its effect activates whenever it's destroyed, not just by card effects. This means Yaksha is fully compatible with Fire Formations, Flamvell Firedog, and Rekindling, as well as with its own family of Fire Kings. Also, Yaksha is the only card that lets you destroy a card from your hand, so if you have a pesky Garunix or Nepthys clogging up your hand, you can just destroy Yaksha to get rid of it AND activate its effect next turn.

Well said, I agree.

By the way, what is BOTFF?

I still haven't gotten my Slifer the Sky Dragon in the mail nor have I gotten Number 16 Shock Master. When will I get the cards sent to me?
