Playing style

Primary strategy

of a "Trickstar" Deck is dealing small amounts of effect damage, usually 200 points, multiple times through various effects. Each will deal damage when:

The archetype is not without the ability to deal battle damage, however;

  • "Trickstar Holly Angel" gains ATK each time a "Trickstar" monster deals damage, including herself.

Secondary strategy

is to disrupt your opponent's plays to prevent them from mounting a comeback.

  • "Lightstage" can lock down their Set Spells and Traps for a turn before forcing a "use it or lose it" scenario,
  • "Trickstar Reincarnation" will banish their hand face-down and draw an equal number of new cards for them (which can also deal significant burn damage off of "Lycoris's" effect), eliminating the benefit of search cards and cards that activate in the Graveyard.
  • "Holly Angel" will prevent the "Trickstar" monsters in her Link Points from being destroyed
  • "Lycoris" can return them from the field to the hand to avoid other removal effects.

Search and recovery power

Which the archetype also has lots of.

  • "Lightstage" can search any of the "Trickstar" monsters on activation,
  • "Candina" can search any "Trickstar" card, including herself, when Normal Summoned. This will often be "Lilybell," which you can then Special Summon, allowing you to promptly Link Summon "Holly Angel" or attack directly with "Lilybell" via its effect to recover a "Trickstar" card from the Graveyard.
  • "Lycoris" can return "Candina" to your hand to allow you to Summon her and search again
  • "Reincarnation" can be banished from the Graveyard to Special Summon a "Trickstar" from your Graveyard.
