Traps


Using cards such as "Enemy Controller" to take control of your opponent's monsters so that you can tribute them for a Ritual Summon. This is not required, however, as you can usually use other ritual monsters already in your hand as tributes. Multiple copies of "Senju of the Thousand Hands", "Manju of the Ten Thousand Hands", and "Sonic Bird", you can search for all of your ritual spells and monsters in no time, easily allowing you to win.

By adding "Blue Eyes White Dragon" you can summon level 8 Ritual Monsters with "Advanced Ritual Art", since many strong Ritual Monsters are level 8. Then you can use "Birthright" to Special Summon "BEWD".

If you Ritual Summon a level 8+ Ritual Monster by tributing another level 8+ Ritual Monster on the field, you can follow it up with a "A Deal with Dark Ruler" to Special Summon a "Berserk Dragon". In addition, Berserk Dragon works better in a Ritual Monster Deck than most ordinary decks, because its high level makes it an asset rather than a Dead draw. However, this will not work if you have "Samsara" out on the field.

"Ascending Soul" is much better than "Samsara" since it gives Hand Advantage. If you Normal Summon/Flip Summon a Ritual Searcher such as "Manju of the Ten Thousand Hands" you can recycle it as many times when you use it as a tribute, allowing for a faster deck.

Relinquished Deck

"Relinquished" can be a very powerful card with the right support and its effect can be hard to counter against an unprepared deck. The Deck is very fast and can grant great field control with many cards that can interact with each other in a powerful way.

The basic strategy of this Deck is to use "Senju of the Thousand Hands", "Manju of the Ten Thousand Hands" and "Sonic Bird" to add "Relinquished" and "Black Illusion Ritual" to your hand. Then, when it it appears safe, Ritual Summon "Relinquished" and take control of one of your opponent's monsters during each of your turns and make it into an Equip Spell Card for "Relinquished".

Some useful additions to the deck include:

  • The Djinn of Rituals - these can help to improve Ritual Summons. The most useful "Djinn" is "Djinn Releaser of Rituals", with its decent DEF and its effect which stops your opponent from Special Summoning. "Armageddon Knight" and "Foolish Burial" are useful for getting these cards in the Graveyard. "Armageddon Knight" and "Djinn Releaser of Rituals" are searchable by "Mystic Tomato", and "Djinn Releaser of Rituals" can also be searched by "Tour Guide From the Underworld", that is helpful to Xyz Summon "Number 17: Leviathan Dragon" and activate its effect to immediately send "Djinn Releaser of Rituals" to the Graveyard; "Tour Guide" can also immediately Xyz Summon "Leviair the Sea Dragon" to recuperate a banished Djinn.
  • The Tomato Toolbox - with this you can generate some field presence and allow yourself for fast level 5 or 6 Synchro Summons. A basic strategy for using the Toolbox is to Set a "Cherry Inmato". When it is your opponent's turn they might attack your "Cherry Inmato". You are then able to Special Summon one "Cherry Inmato" and one "Inmato" from your deck. Finally, when it is your turn again you can Normal Summon one of your Ritual card searchers, you can then proceed to tune the monsters you already have on the field for an appropriate Synchro Monster of your choice and if you are lucky a "Relinquished" as well. The Tomato Toolbox also has the ability to give you draw power through "Inmato's" effect, but it may not happen often because of a lack of Plant-type monsters.
  • Spirit Reaper - Can be helpful for field presence, especially since it can searched by the Tomato Toolbox if you decide to include "Mystic Tomato".
  • Lava Golem - this can change the duel to your favor very fast. It has 3000 ATK and 2500 DEF and gives great field control by being Special Summoned to your opponent's side of the field with a tribute of two of your opponent's monsters, because of this you can then absorb it with "Relinquished". Remember that its effect will be negated when equipped to "Relinquished" so "Lava Golem's" damaging effect will not affect you.
  • Chaos Sorcerer - a powerful card which grants field control. With "Manju" and "Senju" being LIGHT monsters, it should be easy to add some DARK monsters to fulfill the summoning requirements.
  • Dark Armed Dragon - another powerful card that grants field control. If you use the "Djinn of Rituals" and "Armageddon Knight' it should be easy to get three DARK Monsters in the graveyard.
  • My Body as a Shield and Interdimensional Matter Transporter - your best choices for protecting "Relinquished" since its effect only protects it from being destroyed by battle.
