2020's taught us that very few things are certain in the world, but there's one thing you can always count on: soon or later, Doug will play Altergeists. Despite Altergeist Multifaker finally coming off the Limited list, Altergeists have been pretty absent from competition, while Dogmatika's getting thrown into every popular deck to see what can best take advantage of Dogmatika Fleurdelis, the Knighted.

To correct this grave error, today's video is all about how you can have your 'spellcaster-cake' and eat it too, by playing Dogmatika Altergeist. If you're ready to see the ultimate Yu-Gi-Oh mashup, check out the video below!

Played correctly, Altergeists can be one of the strongest tempo strategies in the game. In the past, their resiliency and adaptability brought them levels of hatred typically reserved for 'Halqcross' decks, Orcust Harp Horror and Mystic Mine. It's difficult to say if this deck would have earned more wins for Doug during the Remote Duel Invitational, but it definitely would have been fun to watch. For those of us not facing it, at least.

If you want to give it a shot, check out the full decklist below!
