Cardfight #56: Josephine’s Shadowstitch Murakumo Deck Profile

Hey, fighters!

Cardfight #56 sees us pit two of Josephine’s decks against each other. Her Shadowstitch Murakumo deck, as played by ZaCaptain, against her Afterimage Nubatama deck, as played by Dempster. You can check the video above to see the bout, but if you’re interested in seeing the Shadowstitch deck profile, we have it in this post.

  • Compared to this deck’s previous build before Shadowstitch, this deck build offers a lot more with Shadowstitch. With the Shadowstitch ability, it may put your opponent in a dilemma where they need to either take damage or deal with the unit’s Shadowstitch ability, which usually involves recalling the same unit from the deck. The deck is built for pushing your opponent to the edge, and then off.
  • Although, the same weakness a Murakumo deck has previously still applies here. With Yasuie and most of the strides, you do require having a rear guard on the field already before you stride and activate skills. Which means you need to find a way to protect units like Charcoal Fox and Dual Weapon for one turn. Something to keep a note of.
  • But other than that, having copies of them pop up on the field and using their normal and Shadowstitch abilities to repeatedly poke your opponent’s Vanguard will fulfill the deck’s intended functionality.

As always, if you have any queries, comments or suggestions, feel free to let me, Dempster or Leon know.
