  • The Idea Drone deck, to say the least, is a little tricky to build and use. I tried to follow the recommended recipe printed on the papers in the Clan Booster, but like what we always say about deck profiles, I managed to use that as a base and made adjustments to the deck to better fit my style. What you see here is the end result of that, so hopefully with this deck profile, I pay it forward to you guys, so that you can learn from it and build it to your style of play.
  • In any case, this deck focuses on speed binding. The faster the cards goes in the bind zone, the better it will be later in the game, but of course, the ideal units to bind would be Zodiac Time Beast units.
  • Diaperno is a pretty interesting card but it is way too important to remove from the deck as it works a double binder at the end phase. At the same time, it is a high powered defender against Vanguard attacks.
  • As strong Prospatheia Idea-drone looks on paper, things will get very hairy quickly. When it does, don’t hesitate to switch to Chronofang Tiger as soon as you can. Demiurge is a fantastic finish to use, but against an opponent who knows what you are doing, it’s best to give up on that strategy and try to end the game with Rebellion. The mass bindings that you have done so far will help feed Rebellion’s CONT skill, making that quad drive with double critical much more painful to guard for your opponent. Sticking to Prospatheia for the long haul may not last you until the end of the game. So, always prepare a Plan B.
  • The cons that this deck has is that things can get out of hand pretty quickly, if you have bad RNG. Once you can’t get the right cards in the bind zone, the right units called using Chanomai Idea-drone (this card asks that you bind 2 units from the 5 you called BEFORE the end step), you are a sitting duck with a hunter’s crosshairs in your sights.
  • But despite all that, the set is pretty interesting nevertheless, why not give it a try yourself? With the release of Metapulsar, Altered Dragon, there is no way else this deck can go but up.
