How to play the Eldlich Deck

The main strategy of the Eldlich deck is to control the board with Gozen Match and Vanity’s Emptiness to make sure that only Eldlich the Golden Lord is on the field. Cards like Solemn Judgment can be used to prevent enemy card effects from destroying these trap cards to ensure that they remain effective.

The Eldlich can constantly bring himself back to the field from the graveyard by sacrificing a spell or trap card. Multiple Eldliches can be summoned by combining this effect with the Eldlixir cards, which makes summoning Extra Deck monsters like the Superdreadnoughts and Zeus much easier.

Monster/Trap cards like the Huaqeros and the Dinomischus are mainly used for summoning Xyz and Link monsters. They’re best used as ammunition for summoning the Eldlich from the player’s hand or the graveyard due to their own GY effects.

This deck is weak against other disruption-heavy decks like Drytron or cards with banish effects. Once all three Eldliches are banished, then the game is practically lost.
