[Deck] XYZ Scraps

Hi guys, guess Baha is still out of commission from Diablo. And the Worlds Qualifiers for SG is coming up next week! Someone talk him out of his den please lol!

Well while he is out of commission, I can't just leave the blog hanging, so as promised, i have formed a new deck for everyone's consideration, XYZ Scraps! Here is the deck list below.

Monster [16]
[3] Scrap Chimera
[3] Scrap Beast
[1] Scrap Orthros
[3] Photon Thrasher
[1] Blackwing - Zephyros
[3] Effect Veiler
[2] Cardcar D

Magic [15]
[1] Monster Reborn
[1] Heavy Storm
[2] Mystical Space Typhoon
[3] Pot of Duality
[3] Scrapyard
[3] Scrapstorm
[1] Forbidden Lance
[1] Book of Moon

Trap [9]
[2] Raigeki Break
[2] Solemn Warning
[1] Solemn Judgement
[2] Fiendish Chain
[2] Torrential Tribute

Basically this deck works similar to a standard Scrap deck, so you can see some of my previous works from the deck archive. However what has changed ever since I made the previous decks is basically the surrounding meta, where there are now Exceeds, or XYZs! (Previously there was pretty much nothing other then Utopia) 

I shall not explain how the Scrap deck concept works, since that much has not really changed. The main additions to the deck is the inclusion of Photon Slasher together with the usage of XYZ. Using Scrap Chimera, you can easily make several useful XYZ for various situations Roach (Against Chaos Dragons / Heiratics) or even Utopia Ray for that final kill, though of course Scrap Dragon is still pretty much the main thing that can take out any any situations you may meet. 

Throw Photon Slasher into the mix however, and you can make more goodies such as Evilswarm Ouroboros or Shock Ruler, which are especially useful depending on situation. Even in that *&%# situation where you can't get a Beast out whatever you do, you can still make Chain to discard Beast, making this pretty much a toolbox deck. Heck, even if you have everything ready, you can still make Chain to top deck your Chimeras/Veilers to further loop and lock your opponent. Found myself doing that quite abit when I tested the deck. I will also try to squeeze in a starlight road if possible though I haven't quite decided what I will remove for it yet.

I personally consider this like a Rabbit Raggia deck, just that of course you have no access to Raggia, but in return you get a deck that easily makes XYZs every turn with minimal investment required. The deck is somewhat Asia format friendly, since you only need to remove Orthros which is a personal pick. However, with various XYZs such as Roach, Shock Ruler and Ouroboros out of the mix, the deck may lose some of its control elements so you may have to play more carefully since it does not have the cards to block off the other meta decks. Well, that isn't a problem if you are using this at the TCG side / for non-Asia Format. Enjoy!


  1. I love learning about new various Scrap decks. Thanks for the post DSummon. I just wish the TCG would get all the awesome Rank 4s the OCG has already.

  2. Why no Queen Dragoon? You can summon back Scrap Dragon for a giant beater and summon any Scrap after being destroyed.

  3. @MasterSephiroth No Queen Dragoon, since i considered most situations that I would be able to get out Queen Dragoon, I would be able to directly call out Scrap Dragon instead, and not being able to use the effect that turn is not very useful. May try it though, thanks for the tip!

    @Ahmeng Would try to, but honestly still busy with my work. I will try to resume videos on a more regular basis once I complete my job change which is end of this month.

  4. you dont use call of haunted ?

  5. Nope, dont find it suitable in a meta filled with Inzektors and stuff. That 1 slow card can make the difference between a win or lose. If it has to be slow, it had better be something that can be used to control the game.

  6. Why u dont use Chain Dog for XYZ Rank 4?

  7. Does Card Car D have to be used? Is there a possible substitute for it?

  8. dude any plans on making a neos build?..since it has miracle contact in it which made neos a bit stable..XD

  9. You still have to find a way to get it to grave and its troublesome. Current meta needs speed, which only Photon Thrasher can provide.

    Card Car D should be used because this deck essentially runs on gaining advantage and momentum. When you don't have the combo pieces to start off the Scrap loop, Card Car D is the best.

    Not really, not really suitable. No sense in building decks which are fun but not tournament viable currently.

  10. must congratulate you on you build. it is awesome. in my experience, it has a 70% win percentage. i have been trying it out for the past few hours on dueling network. i must say a really good deck in my opinion.

  11. netdeckers,netdeckers everywhere.

  12. I was inspired. Input is appreciated.
