The Winged Dragon of Ra (Ghost Rare)'s one of the coolest, most collectible cards of the year. It really came out of nowhere to make Rage of Ra a much bigger deal for collectors and old school fans. But can it actually be competitive? 

Sam's been working on that very question the last couple of weeks, and now he's got the answer: a competitive build where Crystron Halqifibrax, Linkross and Scrap Wyvern support the Egyptian God card. How does it work and what are the plays? Hit the video to find out.

Has Sam cracked the code? Does this build give The Winged Dragon of Ra a fighting chance in competitive circles? You can see Sam play some games with the deck right here, but check out the decklist, give it a try and see for yourself!
