Lesson #1

Firestar – Possible Tier 1?





Firestar is a new archetype in this game, and it focuses on Beast-Warrior type monsters. All Support Cards (Spell/Traps) are focused on helping Beast-Warrior type monsters, by either making them immune to other effects, or giving them additional ATK, allowing you to Normal Summon another on that turn, or allowing you to add one from your Deck.

A lot of combinations are possible in this deck, it can easily topdeck itself out of difficult situations, and is hard to counter, except by nailing the Spell/Traps cards.



Bottomline of this deck is, to get the Spell/Traps out as soon as you can, and then use the monsters to either spam the field or gain control.
Good card that’s easily summoned and gives you a lot of control, except for mirror matches, is Firestar King – Soko. It negates the effects of face-up monsters that are not Beast-Warrior type by detaching 1 Material and when it’s Xyz Summoned, you get to place 1 Firedance Spell/Trap in your backrow.
Also a good Xyz for the deck is Firestar Lord – Chouraio. It can get your Firestar monsters back from your Graveyard to your hand easily, and is 2200 ATK, which is pretty good for a Rank 3.




Firestar is mainly reliant on its Spell/Trap cards.



Firedance – Tenki

Spoiler:
 


Effect is:

“When this card is activated: You can add 1 Level 4 or lower Beast-Warrior-Type monster from your Deck to your hand. All Beast-Warrior-Type monsters you control gain 100 ATK. You can only activate 1 "Firedance - Tenki" per turn.”

Basically our E – Emergency call. Shame it can be used only once per turn, but that’s only a minor setback, because in combination with the other Spell card, Firedance – Tensu, you simply Throw down the other monster you search. And since they also boost your monsters, it’s easy to gain their effects (Ensho and Yushi).

Firedance – Tensu

Spoiler:
 


Effect is:

“Once per turn, during your Main Phase, you can Normal Summon 1 Beast-Warrior-Type monster in addition to your Normal Summon or Set. All Beast-Warrior-Type monsters you control gain 100 ATK.”

Doesn’t stack, but offers you to easily Summon Soko or Chouraio, since you have the double Normal Summon. Also provides as easy food for Soko’s effect. “You can send 3 "Firedance" Spell/Trap cards you control to the Graveyard; Special Summon 2 Level 4 Beast-Warrior-Type monsters with the same ATK from your Deck in face-up Defense Position.

Firedance – Tenken

Spoiler:
 


Effect is:

“Activate only during a Main Phase 1. When this card is activated: Target 1 Beast-Warrior-Type monster you control; during this Main Phase, that target's effects on the field are negated, and it is unaffected by card effects, except this card. Beast-Warrior-Type monsters you control gain 300 ATK.”

Basically their Forbidden Lance. Also nice if you link it with Firedance – Tensen.
Chain Link 1: Tenken
Chain Link 2: Tensen
Resoolves backwards, first gains the 1000 ATK, then becomes immune to other Spell and Trap cards, yet it keeps the 1000 ATK boost. (DN Administrator Tuvillo confirmed this)


Firedance – Tensen

Spoiler:
 


Effect is:

“When this card is activated: Target 1 face-up Beast-Warrior-Type monster you control; it gains 1000 ATK until the End Phase. While this card is face-up on the field, Beast-Warrior-Type monsters you control gain 300 ATK.”

Is a Horn of the Phantom Beast, and gives a 1300 ATK boost, in total to a single monster, and 300 for the rest. Good in the combo that is mentioned above. (Firedance – Tenken)



Which also can be seen as a good tech in the deck, is Horn of the Phantom Beast. All cards are Beast-Warrior anyway, and it makes you get a +1. Equip to Ensho in Damage Step, and you get to put a Spell/Trap as backrow from your deck, and draw a card.


Monsters all help on getting the Spell/Traps. Best examples are “Brave Firestar - Ensho” and “Dark Firestar - Yushi”. Ensho having to destroy a Monster by battle and sending it to the Graveyard, and Yushi having to do Battle Damage. Both working quite well with Horn of the Phantom Beast and Firedance – Tensen, when attacked by opponents monsters.

Great Firestar Hawkei and Agile Firestar Seiven both function as the decks Sangan for Spell/Traps. When Seiven is sent to the Graveyard it Sets a spell/Trap. Hawkei just needs to be destroyed. Also both have the same ATK, so are targets for Soko’s effect. “You can send 3 "Firedance" Spell/Trap cards you control to the Graveyard; Special Summon 2 Level 4 Beast-Warrior-Type monsters with the same ATK from your Deck in face-up Defense Position.



I tested this deck several times, it has large potential, and is well able to become at least Tier 2, if not Tier 1,5. It’s very consistant, and quite hard to counter, unless by Mystical Space Typhoon and Dust Tornado, or in cases Royal Decree (against the traps).

I think it's Tier 1.5 right now, if you know how to use the deck, at least. I'm still working with it, but it looks quite good frmo how it performed sofar.
