Ever since their artwork was revealed, players have fallen in love with the cuteness that is the adorable Melffy. While their ability to Special Summon in the End Phase and 'run away' when your opponent does anything scary is cute, their true strength can be found in their synergy with cards like Rescue Cat or Obedience Schooled, leading into a number of Xyz and Link Monsters that can start clearing your opponent's board.

When Phantom Rage releases later this year, the Melffy gain even more power in the form of cards like Zoo King Alpha, Negalogia AA-Zeus and Excited Melffys. Check out MBT's video below to see if these pastel pretties really pack a punch against some of the more competitive decks!

All three of the new themes from Rise of the Duelist are looking to compete against the more popular decks, and the Melffy can certainly hold their own! With a unique play-style and fan-favorite artwork, playing this deck is massively fun as long as you don't mind gearing your Extra Deck to Link climb into Accesscode Talker. Without an easy, on-theme way to finish games, you're usually resigned to going for a more generic win condition.

Despite their end-game challenges one thing is certain: you can't rule Melffy out just yet, and you might see this deck at locals as tournaments open up. If you want to get ahead on Phantom Rage in November, check out the deck list below!
