One of the best things about Yu-Gi-Oh! is that unless a card gets Forbidden, you can play with whatever cards you want! Dark Magician, Elemental Heroes and Blue-Eyes White Dragon are just some of the old school themes that continue to see play. With newer sets like Toon Chaos offering lots of support for older archetypes, you can always break out cards from 'back in the day' and brew up a new deck that performs in 2020.

In this week's video, Leon looks to do just that with cards that are over twelve years old, but still as strong as ever: Lightsworn. Cards like Raiden, Hand of the Lightsworn and Minerva, Lightsworn Maiden are perfect for filling your graveyard with plenty of cards to fuel newer boss monsters like The Chaos Creator and Chaos Dragon Levianeer. The two halves of the deck come together like the delicious sides of a PB&J and you still have room for a secondary engine like Crystron Halqifibrax. Check out the video below and get ready to embrace the Chaos!

It's easy to see why so many people have such a soft spot for Lightsworn, especially when you add in the big, bad The Chaos Creator to the mix. Toon Chaos is already proving to be a pretty potent set. Be sure to check out Kelly Locke's article on Toon Chaos: The Stuff You Didn't Look At so you can stay ahead of the pack when you're cracking packs and picking up singles.
