The Cyber Dragon theme's always lurking in the rogue fringes of modern formats, offering big OTK potential with strong backup plans. While lots of strategies can OTK, Cyber Dragon balances consistency with resiliency; the deck's not just a glass cannon that shatters if it has to go first, and it can often play through your opponent's hand traps!

What's changed since Sam's last build back in May? Hit the video to find out, and see how the deck works.

The landscape of competition has changed, and this deck sets aside cards that were once Cybernetic Overflow to adapt for modern metas! You can see the decklist below, but be sure to watch Sam's combo tutorials to see how it plays around Nibiru, the Primal Being, and even OTKs straight through it. 

This thing beats face in seconds, so if you're a Cyber Dragon fan do yourself a favor and give it a shot!
