Cyber Slash Harpie Lady

Strengths

  • Great beginner friendly aggro deck. The cards needed are relatively easy to get,
  • Cheap deck to build.
  • Strong in the current meta.

Deck Concept

You want to try and put out your Cyber Slash Harpie Lady as quickly as possible. In order to achieve this, swarm the field with Harpie monsters. The Harpies themselves are a strong enough win condition that you don't need to focus on winning with your boss monster.

  • Sphere Kuriboh and Enemy Controller serve as last-minute saves against enemy monsters that have higher ATK than the monsters on your field.
  • Harpies' Hunting Ground is an excellent, if risky, way of clearing your opponent's Spell/Trap Zone while summoning and strengthening Harpies on your field. Harpie Queen can help get the Field Spell to your hand faster.
  • Harpie Oracle can help refresh Elegant Egotist from the Graveyard to your hand. Summoning it to the field is made easier once Cyber Slash Harpie Lady out on the field.
  • Because the Harpies focus more on Spell Cards, Treacherous Trap Hole can be a surprise to your opponent during their turn due to a lack of Trap Cards in your Deck.

How to Play Harpies

Turn One Play

Harpie Channeler.png

1. Play your Hysteric Sign out on the field to draw an Elegant Egotist
2. Then, get your Harpie Channeler. If you have the right hand, you can summon an extra Harpie using Channeler's effect.
3. Play your Elegant Egotist. Its effect will resolve because you have a Harpie on the field. Use its effect to summon a potentially third Harpie.

Counters for Harpies

Weaknesses

  • This deck has a hard time beating any form of control. This deck goes all in on swarming the field with monsters and Spell Cards to win as fast as possible, that it leaves no space for protection.
  • The Harpies have a heavy reliance on certain cards like Elegant Egotist and Hysteric Party. If those are negated, the Harpie Deck's strategy falls apart fast.

Field Counters

Play as many Spell or Trap cards as possible in the early game, especially those that can negate Special Summoning effects. This will help shackle the chain summoning of Harpies, and prevent them from setting up the board.

LP Gain

Try to tech LP gain into your deck. Harpies are aggressive decks so they tend to struggle in the mid to late game. Other than boss monsters like Cyber Slash Harpie Lady, the Harpie archetype generally has low ATK on their monsters. Take advantage of this using LP gain to prolong the duel.
