Advance the Qliphort Armada!

October 28th, 2014

In just a few days, the Dueling world will get its first taste of the Qliphorts – Pendulum Monsters that adjust their ATK and Level and reward you for Tribute Summoning, kind of like Beast King Barbaros or Fusilier Dragon the Dual-Mode Beast.

Last time around we showed you how to create the perfect set-up for the Qliphort strategy: searching out and activating Qliphort Scout and Performapal Trampolynx, searching your Qliphort cards with the Scout’s effect, and then repeatedly Pendulum Summoning monsters from your hand and Extra Deck to use them for Tribute Summons.
