The limitation of Sky Striker Ace – Kagari and Sky Striker Mecha Modules – Multirole has slowed down the Sky Striker hype, but the Deck is still one of the most versatile toolbox Decks in the game as evidenced by its appearance in the Top 32 playoff.   Chen’s build doesn’t include Mystic Mine as a means to slow down the game in his favor, but he is using the recent tech of There Can Be Only One to force the opponent to slow down to his pace while his own lines of play are largely unaffected.

We’ll have Deck Profiles of the other Top 4 coming up, so stay tuned!
