A recent thing we started experimenting with is Hand Goat, named after Hand of Nephthys which can summon out Sacred Pheonix of Nephythys, a scary monster in its own right. Sacred Pheonix of Nephythys is harder to get rid of than it seems. One would have to rely on the Chaos monsters for banishing, and even then, such plans can be easily diverted away when Torrential Tribute is chained or Ring of Destruction suicide kills Sacred Pheonix of Nephythys.

Chaos monsters will be unable to attack and Sacred Pheonix of Nephythys returns safely the following turn. It resembles Vampire Lord, but it is easily to tutor out. Hand of Nephthys is a Spellcaster so the Apprentice Magician engine is there to bring it out. Old Vindictive Magician can also be called out, and act as a removal option.

The ratios are still in the testing phase. The general idea is to use Soul Exchange to complement Hand of Nephthys and the single-tribute monsters are there to also take advantage of Soul Exchange. It is a sound idea but we have yet to put theory into practice.


We are still looking to make more Goat Format live duels via filming. A couple of readers have saw the video we uploaded onto our Youtube Channel, which is a poorly designed and decorated channel meant only for uploading casually made videos, and mentioned that they wanted to see more Goat Format videos.

It is true. Goat Format is very informative. A single duel can express the interactions between cards and the plays that you might not even exist. From vids, I learned of how some seemingly useless cards are used to counter Deliquent Duo and also how Skilled White Magician is used as a White Vanilla monster due to its stats.  So we will do what we can to get more videos uploaded online.

Until then, let us know if you have a better deck idea or improvements to be made to this Hand Goats deck.
