Yugioh Synchro Monsters – Special Edition Tin Deck

If you like using Yugioh synchro monsters, then this tin deck is for you as it contains a variety of synchro Yugioh monster cards!


For a while now, I have been looking to start a synchro deck. Synchros are one of the, if not the most popular type monsters out in the Yugioh world, so why not create a proto-deck with them? Plus, I was sick and tired of dueling my friends with my regular deck (and winning of course), so I also wanted to make a Yugioh synchro deck for the creative aspect. So while I was in Walmart today, I bought a Yugioh Special Edition Tin. The tin came with three Duelist Pack Yusei 2, one Ancient Prophecy, and three holofoil cards. Though I didn’t find any synchro monsters, I still got really nice cards. Continue reading “Yugioh Synchro Monsters – Special Edition Tin Deck”

Top 10 Tuner Monsters in Yugioh Part 1

As I was contemplating on what post to write, I figured I should write another top 10, since I haven’t written one for some time. Then I realized that though I have written a top 10 synchro monster list, I have never written a top 10 tuner monster list despite their dominance in Yugioh. So, here are (in my opinion) the top 10 tuner monsters in Yugioh:

10. Dark Resonator

For some reason, I have a huge fetish with the ‘Resonator’ tuners. One of my decks on Yugioh Online is a Resonator deck where I swarm Resonators on to the field and synchro summon powered monsters with them. Anyways, the reason Dark Resonator is on this list is because it is a pretty powerful low-leveled tuner with 1300 attack points. Plus, once per turn Dark Resonator can negate its destruction through battle. Its effect allows you to stall to find the right synchro material monster you need. Plus, a synchro monster who was summoned with Dark Resonator gains 300 attack points.

9. D.D. Sprite

With no attack points and 100 defense points, D.D. Sprite may not look like much but it is a great tuner monster. You can remove one monster on your side from the field and special D.D. Sprite. That is huge because if you haven’t normal summoned that turn, you can use your normal summon to bring out a monster you can use to synchro summon. Also, the monster you removed from play to special summon D.D. Sprite returns your next standby phase, so if D.D. Sprite is still alive, you can synchro summon it with the returning monster. This is a very efficient monster and is amazing in D.D. decks.

8. Plaguespreader Zombie

Just like D.D. Sprite, Plaguespreader Zombie can also special summon itself, but you have to return one card from your hand to the top of your deck. Like I mentioned with D.D. Sprite, this is great because if you have not used your normal you can use it to play a monster that you can use as a synchro material monster. The reason I like Plaguespreader Zombie better than D.D. Sprite is because you can easily normal summon level four monsters, which in turn allows you to bring out level six synchro monsters (most notably, Goyo Guardian).

7. Blackwing – Gale the Whirlwind

Perhaps one of the best Blackwing tuners in the game, Blackwing – Gale the Whirlwind just had to be on this list. It can special summon itself when there are one or more Blackwing monsters on the owner’s field. This allows for instantaneous synchro summoning capabilities, as Blackwing monsters are so good at swarming monsters onto the field. Gale also has 1300 attack points and once per turn, it can halve the attack and defense points of one monster on the field! That effect allows it to destroy any monster with 2600 or lower attack points.

6. Mist Valley Soldier

Mist Valley Soldier is a great tuner monster. Not only is it a level four tuner, which when tuned with a level four monster (the most common monster level) allows you to synchro summon powerful level eight synchro monsters. Mist Valley has a pretty good attack stat with 1700 attack points, but its effect is stellar. It can return a monster back to the owner’s hand if it is not destroyed by battle after battling Mist Valley Soldier. That allows you to return extremely powerful cards, such as the Yubels that are not destroyed by battle, back to their owner’s hand which is clutch if those monsters are throttling you.

Numbers 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 one will be revealed on part 2 of this list.

yu-gi-oh-black-salvo7. Black Salvo

While tuners such as Plaguespreader Zombie and D.D. Sprite create an opening for a synchro summon by brining a monster to their owner’s hand, Black Salvo allows for an instantaneous synchro summon. The moment Black Salvo is summoned, you can special summon a level four dark machine monster from your graveyard. Then, a lightning fast synchro summon! With Black Salvo, you can synchro summon monster such as Black Rose Dragon, Ancient Fairy Dragon, and as Black Salvo is run in machine decks, Power Tool Dragon could be an option as well. A big downside to this monster though is that it is not really splashable in many decks, since there are not a lot of dark oriented machine decks (the only one that comes to the top of my head is Ally of Justice).

yu-gi-oh-mist-valley-soldier6. Mist Valley Soldier

Mist Valley Soldier is a great tuner monster. Not only is it a level four tuner, which when tuned with a level four monster (the most common monster level) allows you to synchro summon powerful level eight synchro monsters.

Card of the Week

My first meeting with a Mist Wurm card was pretty hilarious! Towards the end of my trip to Nepal, my parents and I visited a common goods store to buy some items. In the store, there was a games section as well and it was stocked with merchandise of games like Beyblade, Pokemon, and even Yugioh! There was a special Yusei tin pack in the Yugioh section, and guess what the cover card was? Mist Wurm. However, it wasn’t just any Mist Wurm, it was a poorly made, fake version of the card. The Yugioh sticker at the bottom-right of the card was badly places, the title was in the wrong font, and even the holographic image looked more rough than bright. Though I was bummed out that I lost a chance to acquire a fierce synchro monster, that moment really made my day! Thus, I decided Mist Wurm should be my card of the week.

Mist Wurm is one of the most formidable and rare Yugio synchro monsters around. Though it could be a bit of a hassle to summon due to needing two non-tuner monsters, its stats and effect makes up for it. Not only does Mist Wurm have a dominating 2500 attack points, it also has a solid effect. When it is synchro summoned, you can return up to three cards your opponent controls. That basically guarantees a direct attack opportunity.
