So... just found out about this new Deck called "Ghostrick". It's kind of like a PACMAN Deck, and it has a Halloween theme. There's quite a lot of neat cards in it, most of them turn out to be balanced versions of other effects, though.

 

NONE OF THEM can be Normal Summoned, unless you control another Ghostrick monster. They all have to be Normal Set (doesn't say anything about Special Summoning them, though!). They all have the ability to change themselves into face-down DEF position once a turn, too.

 

 

GhostrickLantern-SHSP-JP-OP.png

 

Ghostrick Lantern

 

Cannot be Normal Summoned unless you control a "Ghostrick" monster (but can be Normal Set). Once per turn: You can change this card to face-down Defense Position. When an opponent's monster attacks you directly or targets a "Ghostrick" monster for an attack: Target that attacking monster; negate the attack, and if you do, Special Summon this card from your hand in face-down Defense Position.

 

tl;dr: Pseudo-Battle Fader.

Ghostrick Specter

 

Cannot be Normal Summoned unless you control a "Ghostrick" monster (but can be Normal Set). Once per turn: You can change this card to face-down Defense Position. When a "Ghostrick" monster is destroyed by your opponent's card (either by battle or card effect) and sent to the Graveyard: You can Special Summon this card from your hand in face-down Defense Position, and if you do, Draw 1 card.

 

tl;dr: Pseudo-Cyber Valley.

Ghostrick Witch

 

Cannot be Normal Summoned unless you control a "Ghostrick" monster (but can be Normal Set). Once per turn: You can change this card to face-down Defense Position. Once per turn: You can target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; change it to face-down Defense Position.

 

tl;dr: Maestroke who can't protect herself.

 

GhostrickYukionna-SHSP-JP-OP.png

 

Ghostrick Yukionna

 

Cannot be Normal Summoned unless you control a "Ghostrick" monster (but can be Normal Set). Once per turn: You can change this card to face-down Defense Position. When this card is destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard: You can change the monster that destroyed it to face-down Defense Position. That monster cannot change its battle position.

 

tl;dr: A better version of Gonogo (IT SUCKS, LOOK IT UP).

 

GhostrickJiangshi-SHSP-JP-OP.png

 

Ghostrick Jiangshi

 

Cannot be Normal Summoned unless you control a "Ghostrick" monster (but can be Normal Set). Once per turn: You can change this card to face-down Defense Position. When this card is flipped face-up: You can add 1 "Ghostrick" monster from your Deck to your hand whose Level is less than or equal to the number of "Ghostrick" monsters you control. You can only use this effect of "Ghostrick Jiangshi" once per turn.

 

tl;dr: Balanced Geargiarmor.

 

GhostrickStein-SHSP-JP-OP.png

 

Ghostrick Stein

 

Cannot be Normal Summoned unless you control a "Ghostrick" monster (but can be Normal Set). Once per turn: You can change this card to face-down Defense Position. When this card inflicts battle damage to your opponent: You can add 1 "Ghostrick" Spell or Trap card from your Deck to your hand. You can only use this effect of "Ghostrick Stein" once per turn.

 

tl;dr: Fire Fire Bear who doesn't pop.

 

300px-GhostrickAlucard-SHSP-JP-OP.png

 

Ghostrick Alucard

 

2 Level 3 monsters

Your opponent cannot target other "Ghostrick" monsters or face-down monsters for attacks. You can detach 1 XYZ material from this card to target 1 Set card your opponent controls; destroy that target. You can only use this effect of "Ghostrick Alucard" once per turn. If this card is sent to the Graveyard: You can target 1 other "Ghostrick" monster in your Graveyard; add that target to your hand.

 

tl;dr: A Fient Plan, MST / Shield Crush, and Warrior Returning Alive for Ghostricks, upon death.

 

300px-GhostrickHouse-SHSP-JP-OP.png

 

Ghostrick House

 

Face-down monsters cannot be targeted for attacks. If the only monster(s) a player controls are face-down, their opponent can attack them directly. Halve any battle damage from monsters, except "Ghostrick" monsters, or effect damage either player takes.

 

tl;dr: A Fient Plan, both players can go nuts and attack directly, and all damage, except Ghostrick damage, is halved.

 

GhostrickOut-SHSP-JP-OP.png

 

Ghostrick Out

 

Reveal 1 "Ghostrick" monster in your hand; for the rest of this turn, "Ghostrick" cards and face-down Defense Position monsters you control cannot be targeted or destroyed by card effects.

 

tl;dr: Infestation Pandemic for Set Monsters and ALL Ghostrick cards, including the Field Spell.

 

GhostrickPanic-SHSP-JP-OP.png

 

Ghostrick Panic

 

Target any number of face-down Defense Position monsters you control; change them to face-up Defense Position, then change face-up monsters your opponent controls to face-down Defense Position, up to the number of "Ghostrick" monsters flipped face-up by this effect.

 

tl;dr: Book of Taiyou for you, then Book of Eclipse for opponent.

 

 

I'm guessing Nobleman of Crossout and Shield Crush would be great to use in this Deck, since you're constantly setting your opponent's cards. Des Lacooda and Swarm of Locusts / Scarabs should fit well, too, and Allure of Darkness and Pot of Duality are easily able to be thrown into the Deck.

 

Fairly balanced looking archtype, they look like they'd be great for casual play. I like them.

 

Who else expects Konami to break the crap out of them in about a year?

Welp looks like there is now a new archetype I shall play and it is TOTALLY not because of the vampire card and the lolis...

We finally get new Zombies...and they're chibis...*sigh*

Super disappointed. And they're subpar too...great. Just great. I cannot see these going far without a support card as broken, if not more, than Spellbook of Judgment.

I'll play them just cos they're adorable as f. Also, I'm sure there's gonna be a way to make them broken or at least make them good enough to compete with other decks. There's always a way.

 

It's yugioh and we have Konami throwing broken cards at us. Just wait for it. 

 

For now I see them as a trap heavy deck that is awesome when it gets down to grind games.

Pretty much how I feel in a nutshell.  The art is one thing, but the mechanic is just ugh.  It's a neat concept, but everything i'm seeing so far is slow, hard to use, and not worth the effort.  Even from a casual standpoint these don't look all that fun.  Hopefully they get something that changes that, but in the meantime, ugh.

they're pretty mediocre, tbh, with good support cards but no win condition. Witch could be used in prophecy to flip ophion Face Down in the ep followed by a spellbook of fate, I guess, though. Also, you could use some of this as worm support, though on its own it doesn't look like it will amount to much.

I'm really excited for them and love their artwork / theme. I doubt Konami would break this Archetype though; feels more like one of those possible Tier 2-3 Decks.

I'm really excited to test these guys out. I mean Alucard is just really awesome and works well with the spellcasters and since he's generic that means TGU :D I just like how this archetype seems to work and just can't wait to try them out! Though they obviously need more cards, those will come at a later date.

Just another DARK type deck to add to my collection *rubs hands* but in all seriousness I think after a little more time and more cards to release with them, it could turn out to be an interesting archetype. I know there are some people who don't think they won't amount to anything, but one never truly knows until they find out themselves, I'm fairly positive person.

Who the fuck are you people even trying to convince by making completely weightless blanket statements? Like people are actually putting some sort of effort to make good posts giving legitimate reasoning as to why RPS is not, has not, and never will be a balanced way to "randomly" pick who goes first, while you fucking toolbags just post the most irrelevant and pointless shit thinking that you're adding some sort of weight to the discussion.

All you're really contributing to at this point is the massive list of problems that DNF has in terms of post quality. Stop.

Maybe a pretty generic deck + <15 ghostrick cards, siding into something else could work? But yeah, G1, simorgh will be brutal, their only main deck out may be  TGU -> acid golem

...but then there's the issue that simorgh will be encountered very, very rarely; if that is going to be their biggest fear, they'll be a very happy archetype

The real issue is how they'll fare against the standard meta decks

If these guys aren't renamed something along the lines of Groovy Ghoulies, I will be shocked.

 

I'm struggling to see the good thing about these guys aside from the art. They are obviously slow. They seem to be reliant on the field spell to get stuff done, since it means they can protect there field from attacks, but not effects. They are better than my first impression of them (Of them being garbage), but as of yet... They seem to lack a win condition besides being minorly disruptive.

 

Also, Swords of Concealing Light, and Book of the Eclipse.

They really aren't that slow. Any sense of it is nullified by the fact that they also slow down your opponent while getting searches off. I've been hardcore proxy testing this deck, and I love it. I have my own little secret strategy that really pushes it to the top. I really think people are underrating this Archetype.

 

P.S. Book of Eclipse is Bad. Swords of Concealing Light is Staple x 3.
