As many predicted, about half the tournament is using some variation of Trickstar or Sky Strikers. The most popular version is Sky Striker Trickstar, with Mekk-Knight Trickstar next. A few Duelists are using no Trickstars at all, either with pure Sky Strikers or builds mixed with Mekk-Knights. Even though all these Decks are in the same family, there’s a lot of ways to customize the strategies to your own liking.

The other half of the Top 64 is very interesting – there are nearly a dozen different strategies represented! It seems that the Trickstar and Sky Striker Decks are most popular, but are not so dominant to shut out other strategies entirely. Rather, we have a meta that allows for all kinds of strategies to work! There are Extra Deck combo focused Decks like Pendulum Magicians, D/D/D, and Gouki. There are also slower controlling Decks like Altergeist, True Draco, Paleozoic, and ABC. There’s even a bunch of Infernoid Decks, something we haven’t seen much of since That Grass Looks Greener was Forbidden.
