Sets


"Yang Zing", known as "Dracomet" ((りゅう)(せい) Ryūsei) in the OCG, is an archetype of monsters that debuted in Duelist Alliance. They resemble Dragon-like creatures, but with a slight appearance of Beasts, either by having a mane and/or tiger stripes, as well as Beast-like paws and claws; also, they have a bead inside a triangle on their chest and 3 others on their horns. All of them are Wyrm-Type, which is a new Monster Type that also debuted in Duelist Alliance; the variety of Attributes is also emphasized. The deck is the first solely Synchro Monster based archetype to be released since the debut of Xyz Monsters, with no Xyz support whatsoever thus far.

Story

A group of Wyrms who dwell inside the "Stars" of the Heavens and Earth. They are incarnations of elements found on the planet and the power of the bright stars in the sky brought forth by "Constellar Sombre", who has the same amount of power as a god. It's said that when the "Yang Zing" come together, a shining radiance will consume everything[1] (Most likely referencing to the deck's primary Synchro monster, Baxia, Brightness of the Yang Zing, and its ability to clear away almost an entire field when summoned).

Playing style

The Main Deck monsters focus on maintaining field presence by Special Summoning one another when they are destroyed. In addition, each of the non-Tuners is capable of Synchro Summoning during your opponent's Main Phase or Battle Phase, like "Urgent Tuning" or "T.G. Wonder Magician", and give extra abilities to the Synchro Monster that they were used to Summon, as follows:

"Yang Zing" monster Attribute Level Additional effect given to the Synchro Monster
Pulao WIND 1 Unaffected by Spell Cards.
Bixi WATER 2 Unaffected by Trap Cards.
Bi'an EARTH 3 Cannot be destroyed by battle.
Suanni FIRE 4 Gains 500 ATK and DEF.
Taotie DARK 5 Control cannot be switched.

The Tuner monsters of the archetype, "Chiwen, Light of the Yang Zing" and "Jiaotu, Darkness of the Yang Zing" have effects that tend to speed-up Synchro Summons even more: the first one follows the trend of many Tuner monsters, such as "Plaguespreader Zombie", "Scrap Mind Reader" and "Re-Cover", by Special Summoning itself from the Graveyard in order to assist a Synchro Summon and being banished when it leaves the Field, if Special Summoned by its own effect; this effect can be triggered when a "Yang Zing" monster you control is destroyed. The second one can instantly set up a Synchro Summon, by Special Summoning 2 "Yang Zings" from your Deck by the cost of 2 "Yang Zing" cards in your hand: you can use its effect to Special Summon, for example, "Bixi, Water of the Yang Zing" alongside with "Suanni, Fire of the Yang Zing", for a quick Synchro Summon of "Baxia, Brightness of the Yang Zing", or "Taotie, Shadow of the Yang Zing" to quickly drop "Yazi, Evil of the Yang Zing".

The aforementioned Synchro Monsters are the ace card of the archetype; "Baxia" can shuffle cards from the field into the Deck, up to the number of original Attributes of Wyrm-Type monsters used for its Synchro Summon; it can also destroy 1 card you control in order to Special Summon a Level 4 or lower monster from your Graveyard, setting up more Synchro Summons not only by bringing back a "Yang Zing" monster but also by destroying a "Yang Zing" and triggering its effect. "Yazi" cannot be targeted by your opponent's effects and can act like a "Yang Zing" version of "Scrap Dragon", destroying 1 of those monsters you control and 1 of your opponent's cards; in addition, it can Special Summon any Wyrm-Type monster from your Deck when it is destroyed.

Another feature is the diversity of Attributes, that is emphasized in cards like "Yang Zing Prana" and "Baxia"; you can use this to your advantage by using cards like "Fuh-Rin-Ka-Zan".

Among general cards that can help the Deck, are highlighted "Imperial Iron Wall" and "Supply Squad". The former prevents "Chiwen" from being banished every time it is Special Summoned by its own effect, while also protects "Yang Zing" monsters from cards that would prevent their searcher effect from being triggered, such as "Bottomless Trap Hole", "Dimensional Prison" and "Macro Cosmos", and the latter makes you draw a card every time a "Yang Zing" monster is destroyed. You can also use "Solidarity" and "Masked Chameleon" in order to increase their ATK and set up more Synchro Summons, respectively.

Considering that "Bixi, Water of the Yang Zing" gives immunity against Trap Cards, "Skill Drain" can also be useful in this deck, since the Synchro monster Summoned by using "Bixi" will be immune to it, while your opponent's monsters will not.

The Deck as a whole can be used to perform any Synchro Summon, so you can use the Quick Effect of the non-Tuner "Yang Zing" monsters to perform Synchro Summons during your opponent's turn, choosing to Summon the monster that is more appropriate depending on your opponent's move. This is made even easier by the fact that every monster can Special Summon any other monster of the archetype when destroyed, giving the player the ability to summon practically any Synchro Monster at any time (whichever one is most appropriate based on what the opponent has), regardless of which monsters you draw (as you can always suicide your monsters into your opponent's if need be).

A good strategy is usually to leave your Tuner and non-Tuners out on the field for your opponent's turn rather than Synchro Summoning on your turn. That way, you can Synchro Summon "Baxia, Brightness of the Yang Zing" on their turn to completely disrupt their plays, although, it is important to note "Baxia"'s shuffling effect will miss timing if your activation of the Yang Zing Quick Effect to Synchro Summon "Baxia" is not Chain Link 1 in the Chain Link. Therefore, besides just making "Baxia", you can make any Synchro in response to any monster effect that targets during your opponent's turn, and those monsters will now miss a target and their effects will not resolve.

In this Deck, generic Synchro Monsters can be even more powerful than they are normally, as they will gain additional bonuses when Summoned by using the "Yang Zing" monsters as Synchro Materials; the Tuner monster in these scenarios is always "Chiwen", except for "Beelze of the Diabolic Dragons", that would require "Jiaotu":

  • "Star Eater" - If Summoned by using "Pulao", "Bixi", "Suanni" and "Bi'an", its immunity against Spell and Trap Cards will be extended beyond the Battle Phase, as well as rendering it unable to be destroyed by battle and give it a 3700 ATK total.
  • "Ascension Sky Dragon" - Due to the above-average Draw power of this Deck, because of "Supply Squad" and "Yang Zing Path", this monster can have a huge ATK boost when Summoned; in addition, if somehow it be destroyed by your opponent, you will also recover all "Yang Zing" used for its Synchro Summon. The fact that their effects will be negated will not be a drawback, unless you are intending to use their Quick Effect, during your opponent's turn.
  • "Giganticastle" - If Summoned by using, for example, 2 "Suannis", it will have a smashing 4300 ATK and 4200 DEF.
    • If you substitute one of the "Suannis" by 2 "Pulao" and 1 "Bixi", it will have 4200 ATK, 4100 DEF and immunity against Spell and Trap Cards.
  • "Red Dragon Archfiend" - When Summoned by using "Pulao", "Bixi", and "Suanni", gains immunity against Spell and Trap cards and increases its ATK to 3500. You can also use its effect to destroy your "Yang Zing" monsters during your End Phase so that you can trigger their effects; this can give you greater control over your Synchro Summons during your opponents turn. You can also Summon "Red Nova Dragon" using two "Jiaotu" as the required Tuners.
  • "Goyo Guardian" - You can Synchro Summon it with "Bi'an" and "Bixi", giving it immunity against monsters with higher ATK and against Trap Cards like "Mirror Force" and "Dimensional Prison", that would prevent this monster from resolving its effect.
  • "Underworld Fighter Balmung" - Summon it with "Bi'an" so that the only way your opponent will have to destroy it is by a card effect, which will trigger its effect.
  • "Beelze of the Diabolic Dragons" - Synchro Summon it with ("Bi'an",) "Bixi" and "Pulao", giving it immunity against Spell and Trap Cards that would negate its powerful effect, such as "Breakthrough Skill" or "Forbidden Chalice", or against cards that would not destroy it, such as "Dimensional Prison".

Trivia

  • The "Yang Zing" are based on the Nine Offspring of the Dragon, characters of Chinese mythology. "Yang Zing" was likely altered from "Yang Xing" to avoid pronounciation difficulties. In Chinese, "Yang Xing" may be interpreted as either 陽星 yáng xīng, literally meaning "sun star", or 陽性 yáng xìng, meaning "positive" or "masculine".
  • The Japanese name 竜星 ryūsei literally translates to "dragon star". It may also be based on 流星 ryūsei, "meteor", and 竜生九子 Ryūsei Kyūshi, "Nine Offspring of the Dragon".
  • This archetype has many similarities with the "Gusto" archetype; both of them are Synchro Summon-oriented archetypes, they also have their own set of "recruiter loops" which also works similarly.
  • According to Sheng'an waiji by Yang Shen, the "9 sons of the dragon" are listed as the following order:
# "Yang Zing" monster Respective Son of the Dragon
1 Bixi Bixi
2 Chiwen Chiwen
3 Pulao Pulao
4 Bi'an
