Kia ora everyone! This week we'll be looking at the deck of Theodore Hamilton, AKA Soulburner, from Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS. Once again, beware of spoilers if you haven't seen it yet!

In a series where everyone is generally serious and brooding or utterly ridiculous, Soulburner made for a good middle ground, having dealt with most of the trauma from the Lost Incident with the help of the Ignis created from him, Flame. But when he met Varis for the first time, all the old wounds reopened. Soulburner refused to work with him in stopping the Ignis war until he'd paid Varis back for what he believed to be his doing.

When Flame was erased after Bohman was defeated, Theodore had nothing left to keep him in Den City, and simply planned to return home. Ai's plans put a stop to that though, and Soulburner once again found himself working with Varis, but when Soulburner obtained a clue to Ai's whereabouts, Varis demanded it, unwilling to chance either Playmaker or Soulburner failing to stop Ai. This gave Soulburner the chance to settle the score with Varis. Their duel made him realize that he'd been running from his past for a decade, and he decided to embrace that which he had lost.

Salamangreats are a well-known tournament deck in the real-life TCG, and in Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS, Soulburner's initial strategies boiled down to Reincarnation Link Summoning Salamangreat Heatleo and winning from there. Over time, he began to put together combos that look a lot like those we see in tournaments. 

This version of Salamangreats will instead focus on the monster that kept Soulburner in the game against Varis: the Fusion Monster Salamangreat Violet Chimera!

This isn't a typical Salamangreat deck, so we'll be including more of the monsters Soulburner used. We have the classic (and Limited) Salamangreat Gazelle, Salamangreat Spinny and Salamangreat Jack Jaguar, and to help put monsters on the field we'll also run Salamangreat Fowl and Salamangreat Mole

We want to get to either Fusion of Fire or Burning Draw (which are always treated as Salamangreat cards) as quick as possible, so we'll run three each of Salamangreat Foxy and Salamangreat Fennec. Burning Draw, which saved Soulburner against Varis, will also help us get to Fusion of Fire if need be. It's easy enough to activate, but should be avoided if you aren't playing against Links or are going first. You can also send Fusion of Fire to the graveyard with Salamangreat Gazelle and recover it with Salamangreat Falco or a reincarnated Salamangreat Sunlight Wolf.

Salamangreat Emerald Eagle might seem unusual to include, but it's more useful than it seems — it can give Salamangreat Violet Chimera a lot of ATK when fused into it. Salamangreat Beat Bison fills a similar role, and we can summon it from the deck with Salamangreat Miragestallio.

This deck only runs two Salamangreat Sanctuary for Reincarnation Link Summons, since Salamangreat Balelynx can search it, and almost any Salamangreat can be used to summon it. You can only use it to reincarnate one monster a turn, so prioritize based on if you need a spell or trap with a reincarnated Salamangreat Sunlight Wolf, the ATK change from the reincarnated Salamangreat Heatleo, or the sheer destructive power from reincarnating Salamangreat Pyro Phoenix.

Reincarnation Fusion Summoning Salamangreat Violet Chimera is the ultimate goal, but even if you Fusion Summon him normally, it's pretty easy to trigger his effect to double his already sizable ATK. Salamangreat Spinny can boost your opponent's monsters, while Salamangreat Heatleo can change their ATK with its reincarnated effect.

Soulburner's Salamangreats are a pretty popular theme with many ways you can play them; the competitive variant, a Fusion variant like this, or even a Ritual build. Hopefully we'll eventually see Salamangreat Blaze Dragon in the TCG so they can play more Xyz Monsters and Salamangreat Zebroid X will actually be useful! I certainly wouldn't be surprised to see them get support in a Fire-themed Legendary Duelists set in the future!
