The Gadget monsters are as integral a part of Yu-Gi-Oh as opening a dead hand in Round 4 of your locals. Despite seeing some Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon over the years, they have never quite reached the power level here that they once did in the OCG. But thanks to Gold Gadget, Silver Gadget, and Platinum Gadget there's a dormant strategy lying in wait, and 2020 may finally be time for these minute metal-men to compete!

In today's video, MBT takes the swarm ability of the Gadget family, and pairs it with Machina Citadel plus a wealth of Rank-4 Xyz. The result's a casual, but deadly deck that can take control of the battlefield and finish a duel with a perfectly timed Double or Nothing!Parallel eXceed keeps the hits coming with a steady stream of Level 4 monsters, letting you pick the perfect Extra Deck plays turn by turn. Check out today's featured video and see if the Gadgets have what it takes.

While strictly a casual rogue deck with no delusions of grandeur, this thing's a lot of fun to pilot! With a Main Deck full of cheap cards, it's great to pick up as your locals start to make a comeback. Though it may not be consistent against some of today's big strategies, it certainly reminds us of what the heart of Yu-Gi-Oh really is: having fun, and more importantly, playing Gadgets.
