Red Nova Resonators Deck Information

Red Nova Resonators Basic Information

Rating Core Card
One Kill
Red Nova Dragon


  • The strongest boss monster in the Deck gets even stronger the more Tuners are in the Graveyard
  • With the right combo, you can bring out the main Synchro Monster out on the field on your first turn.
  • The potential for an OTK attack is high if the field gets cleared before the Battle Phase.

Deck Concept

Red Nova Dragon is Jack Atlas's strongest ace monster, so it stands to reason that the Deck this belongs in holds overwhelming power. True to form, the Red Nova Resonators Deck aims to summon high-powered monsters that can punch through the tightest of defenses, while having enough support to safely commit to an OTK.

Red Nova Resonators Deck Build


Character Skill
Jack Atlas Jack Atlas Demon's Resonance
Can be used by revealing 1 "Resonator" monster in your hand. Return 1 card from your hand to your Deck and add 1 Level 4 or lower Fiend-Type monster to your hand from your Deck. You cannot activate the effect of the added card or cards with the same name during this turn. This Skill will only activate with a Deck that has 10 or more "Resonator" cards or Fiend-Type monsters and an Extra Deck that only has Dragon-Type Synchro Monsters. This Skill can only be used once per turn and twice per Duel.

Main Deck

Card Alternatives

  • Red Gardna can protect a Red Dragon Archfiend from battle destruction, and Goblin of Greed can provide blanket immunity from card effects that involve discarding a card(s) as a cost.
  • Caius the Shadow Monarch can be a great high-level Main Deck monster that can banish a card from the field upon Tribute Summoning, and its Level 6 makes it easier to bring out Red Dragon Archfiend.
  • If you can afford another turn without going for Red Nova Dragon, you can use Red Dragon Vase to draw 2 cards from the Deck, and Scarlet Security to wipe out the opponent's back row.
  • In the chance that the boss monsters are overshadowed by a monster attacking them, Book of Moon or Wall of Disruption are handy cards that can flip the situation.
  • Mystical Space Typhoon comes in handy in being able to destroy Spells and Traps that were recently Set.
  • Stardust Dragon is a good Level 8 Dragon-type curveball to run on this Deck, being able to negate destruction effects through its own effect.

How to Play Red Nova Resonators

Main Combo

Red Nova Dragon.png

1. Activate Resonator Destruction if there are Spells or Traps that your opponent has set already.
2. Activate Resonator Call to get a copy of Red Resonator to your hand.
3. Special Summon Crimson Resonator through its effect, while there are no monsters yet on your side of the field. Then, Special Summon Wandering King Wildwind through its own effect.
4. Synchro Summon Red Rising Dragon through the mentioned monsters as material, and immediately use its effect to bring back Crimson Resonator back to the field.
5. Synchro Summon again, using Red Rising Dragon and Crimson Resonator, and bring out Red Dragon Archfiend.
6. Normal Summon another copy of Crimson Resonator, and use its effect to bring out a copy of Force Resonator or Red Resonator on the field.
7. If you Special Summoned Red Resonator, activate its effect and gain LP equal to the current ATK of Red Dragon Archfiend.
8. Using Red Dragon Archfiend, Red Resonator and Force Resonator, Synchro Summon Red Nova Dragon.
9. If there are still any Set Traps or Spells that survived the various times Resonator Destruction activated, use Night Beam to clean up the back row.

Counters for Red Nova Resonators


  • Main Deck monsters have lower-than-average statlines across the board.
  • The deck is exclusively using Synchro Monsters in the Extra Deck; an anti-Synchro Deck can completely nullify its power.
  • Because of the Demon's Resonance Skill effect, you're locked to Dragon-type Synchro Monsters in your Extra Deck, leaving little room for variety.

Quick-Play Spells and Counter Traps

The Deck doesn't have much to Set in terms of Spells and Traps; all of the work on this Deck happens on its turn. Thus, if you can survive the onslaught, you have the window needed to take down the Boss monsters like Red Nova Dragon and Infernity Doom Dragon.

Bottleneck the Special Summons

Getting Red Nova Dragon or the Level 8 or higher Synchro Monsters out on the field is a very tedious process in itself. Players going up against Red Nova Resonator Decks should be prepared to throw everything against this Deck to stop the combo from being completed, preventing the stronger monsters from entering the field.
