The Organization | CDP: Kashtira Zombies, Arise-Heart Necroface Banishes All, ft. PHHY Support

More banish-mill decks? Yes please.


Strategy Summary:

Today’s profile features a return to the Kashtira archetype, you know, the one that used to be Psychic-type, which is all about banishing your opponent’s cards face down and preventing the use of their Monster Zones or Spell/Trap Card? If that doesn’t ring a bell, be sure to check out my profile with just their first wave of support here: CDP: 7 axes Kshatri-La Kaiju Danger! with instant contact.

As for those of you who haven’t seen the new archetype support yet, that’s pretty damn good. On one side you have Kashtira Riseheart (YGOrg translation)which can Special Summon itself from the hand, banish another Kashtira monster from your Deck, then banish the first 3 from your opponent’s Deck face-down, or you can seek to Prime Planet Paraisos (YGOrg translation) which gives the theme a Field Spell tutor and further strengthens your Kashtira Shangri-ira by destroying cards when its effect triggers. These cards are just great for adding consistency, as both Birth of Kashtira and Preparations of Kashtira required a banished Kashtira monster to have the most value, but now we also have Papiyas of Kashtira (YGOrg translation) revealed, which Freely Special Summons a Kashtira monster from your Deck while you control one. Leading this load of new support is a new Tier 7 monster, Kashtira Ariseheart (YGOrg translation), which has 3000 ATK, the ability to be Xyz Summoned using 1 Kashtira monster the turn Shangri-Ira activated its effect, and a continuous effect to banish any card sent to the Graveyard. Additionally, if all that wasn’t enough, Arise-Heart can also attach 1 banished card as a material once per chain where a card is banished, AND it can detach 3 materials as a quick effect to banish a card on the field face down.

With all that banishment comes great responsibility…or you can do what I do, and just turn to Necroface to banish more cards even faster. With Arise-Heart recycle your copies of Necroface, you can quickly turbo banish the opponent’s entire deck, sometimes decorating them before they even see it coming. To achieve this optimal looping of NecrofaceI run too Shiranui Solitaire, golden sarcophagusand Uni-Zombieto give me several ways to get this Necroface banished Arise-Heart to the field once. With copies of Psychic Path for recovery when the game plan goes awry, this deck is an absolute force to be reckoned with, so don’t doze off on this nightmarish archetype. From Big Bang of Kashtira (YGOrg translation) all things have come, so to banish them they must return.
