Daaang! Extremely Popular Clown-Blade!! Thunder Duel School – On the Road ver. Yo! It’s meeee! The “Thunder!” Hello. I’m Dai. Right elbow, left elbow, switch. I’m the man “Thunder!” Today we’re gonna show you a gimmick that’s popular these days. Yup. “Clown-Blade!” I believe many people are already using it. A lot of people may already know this, but we’ll like to introduce this in this clip. It’s an awesome gimmick! What’s so awesome about this gimmick is… What is it? We use this “Lavalval Chain” during the combo. Daaang! Hey! Stop that! You use it right? Of course, but stop referring back to that incident! It’s over! Damn it! Let’s be a little serious and go over the combo. First, it’s a combo utilizing Rank 4 cards. So what you need is these cards here and gimmick cards to get these Rank 4s. The typical cards. If the cards can lay out Rank 4 cards, similar to these, you can use other cards, like “Photon Slasher.” Anyway, you need these cards for getting Rank 4 cards and either one of these 2 cards. Either one? You just need one. These cards, and one. To get one of these cards out, you can use “Reinforcement of the Army.” It can take this out too. Or with “Foolish Burial” you can drop this card. Or this “Damajuggler” from “Clash of Rebellions.” If you banish this from the grave, you can bring out Performage cards. So you can drop this, and get this into you hand. And you can start off with these 2. I see. So you need to have the cards around here. Yeah. You can start the gimmick like that. Ok. Now let’s begin! We’ll use “Goblindbergh.” So I get this out. And let’s say I had this in my hand. Got it. This one here, OK? Either one is fine, by the way. “Thousand Blades ” or “Tricklown.” Either one. Let’s say we use “Tricklown.” And this will be in the defense position. Here, we set up the Overlay Network. OK, so… And we get “Lavalval Chain” out. To activate its effect, you first send “Tricklown” to the grave. Then you can drop “Thousand Blades” into the grave from the deck. OK. It’s dropped. When this “Tricklown” goes into the grave, it can special summon Perdormage cards from the grave. That includes itself. It’s a Performage card, so it can special summon itself. When it’s special summoned from the grave, you receive 1000 damage points. You can send this from anywhere right? Yup. From anywhere. And now, it’s special summoned. And I received 1000 damage points. And when I receive the damage, this “Thousand Blades” reacts to that. And it comes out of the grave in attack position. And here, I go for Rank 4 Xyz! And these change into the really popular “Tellarknight Ptolemaeus.” You can make this with only 2 monsters. So I make this. And during the End phase, you can attach Xyz material, so I’ll put this here. And during your opponent’s turn you can activate its effect. So during that turn you can take out 3 cards and raise the rank up by 1. And make them into “Constellar Pleiades.” I see. So just now, “Tricklown” was sent into the grave, right? So, during the opponent’s turn, this comes out. You receive 1000 damage points. And this come out. During the opponent’s turn. And during your turn, you Xyz summon again. And the card can be anything, this time. You can release the second “Lavalval Chain,” or you can go with “Castel – the Skyblaster Musketeer.” Then, take 2 cards out, and they’re banished. It’s in the grave so they come out again. We started off only by using “Goblindbergh” and “Tricklown.” And “Voila!” Looks really cheap! This is the popular “Crown-Blade” combo. Needless to say, your opponent can hinder you from getting the cards in the grave. But you can start the combo with few cards. With only 2 cards! 1,2,3,4,5. 5 cards! It’s possible to increase your cards. There are many useful Performage cards. For example, “Damajuggler.” There are other useful cards other than these 2. Here we have “Performage Hatricker.” If there are more than 2 monsters in the field, it can be special summoned. That’s “2 monsters in the field, ” so if my opponent and I have 1 each, I can special summon this. Awesome! It’s really versatile. And this special summon is not limited to one time during the turn. You can special summon as much as you can. Doesn’t it state “once?” Nope. Seriously dude? The difference between this card and “Kagetokage” is that you can take it out anytime after summoning. That’s right. It’s quite strong. And you can even special summon “Kagetokage” and release this card afterward. True, true. Quite strong! It can search too. With this card, you need to drop this into the grave or it has to stay there to activate the card effect, right? Yup. During Battle phase, you can send this to the grave from your hand and activate the effect. When you do this and use Effect 2: During either player’s Battle Phase: You can discard this card; reduce the next battle damage you would take this turn to 0. This can be used during your turn. Let’s say it’s your turn and you are in your Battle phase. You discard this and you move on to Main phase 2. Then you can banish and search. And the important cards. As long as you have these, you can start. So it’s quite a versatile system. Like these here. You can fit it into the deck setup you are currently using. If you want to. You can if you want to. Especially you can easily incorporate it into decks that mainly utilize Rank 4 cards. This adaptability is one of the reasons why it’s so popular. A really versatile gimmick. It’s such a useful gimmick but doesn’t it have any weakness? Something we should be aware of? Of course it has its weakness. We’ve been special summoning from the grave and dropping cards into it. So it’s a gimmick that uses the graveyard. If the opponent has a card like “Dark Law” you’ll have a hard time maneuvering And a lot of your opponents may have “Ptolemaeus” too. This can lead to “Stellarknight Constellar Diamond.” While this card has Xyz material, neither player can send cards from the deck to the graveyard, and any card that returns from the graveyard to the hand is banished instead. It’s a counter graveyard measure. That’s gonna be tough. So it goes like this. “Ptolemaeus” is in defense position. When “Lavalval Chain” is about to use its effect, “Ptolemaeus ” links and… It’s 5, so you put this on. This is in the opponent’s side right? Oh sorry. So it’s on. So when it’s in 1, this already has the material so “Lavalval Chain”… can’t be dropped. It’s a weakness. In order to counter that you can release “Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit.” You can finish it off before it’s put on. It’s a good idea to add something like that into your deck setup. If the opponent does that, you can use these here. That’s right. Now, in the next clip we will be showing a setup you can use when in doubt. Mainly Rank 4 Xyz monsters. I hope you check that out as well. Gotcha! Gotcho! That’s Kagurazaka style! Wannabe! Don’t forget to subscribe!
