The premise of the deck is to loop your level 3 floaters with Crane Crane, creating a variety of XYZ and synchro monsters.
You can do cool stuff like:
1) Crane Crane revive Token Generator
2) XYZ for Leviair, detach Token Generator to grab a banished Cyber Valley and spawn 2 tokens
3a) Banish Valley + Token to draw 2!
3b) Machine Dupe the Cyber Valley! Draw a bunch of cards!

Mind Control and the Enemy Controllers help you steal Dracossack to generate MORE tokens, e-con specifically can help dodge Veiler, etc


I feel like I want to include Gaia Dragon the Thunder Charger, and maybe a 2nd copy of Black Rose Dragon.
Gaia Knight sucks but it's the strongest legal level 6 synchro there is

This deck lacks the upcoming Plant XYZ right now (the one that can Foolish Burial a plant or revive a plant), but it's still playable as is. It likely isn't able to consistently go toe to toe with the incumbent tier 1 decks, but it's still really fun to play.
Crane Crane will probably get it's chance to shine once the format slows down come September, like it's such a ridic card

Big Bang theory (not the show sorry)

A.k.a. Pleiades Abuse .dek

*** Rough Draft Only! Good builds probably don't look anything like this ;(

Then again, if you're not playing Dragon Rulers or Prophecy, you're probably not winning much anyway (barring some obscure insane meta-call I am not aware of), as tournament results seem to imply.
That said, Constellars have some nice things going for them, mainly thanks to our fine friend Pleiades

so "ours" is an illusion

So about them Dragon Rulers? A board of Dracossack + tokens staring you down? Well guess what?

You don't CARE if they make some measly tokens
You can do the optimal play and simply just bounce the Dracossack, but they need to feel the PAIN
You can get fancy and equip that Big Bang Shot to Dracossack and bounce it back to your hand with Pleiades to banish Dracossack! Effect Veiler does NOT exist until your opponent drops it, then it does exist and it is very real. (But for real don't do this play)
Equip Big Bang Shot again to Pleiades (or overlay for Gaia Charger for some odd reason, maybe because you can, not because it's a play that's in any way good) and punish them for making those PUSSY ASS TOKENS

Need something bigger? Constellar Praesepe is your best friend! He can pump himself up to a whopping 3400 atk!
With that Big Bang Shot, that's up to 3800 RAW DAMAGE  (*results may vary) to your opponent's life points! hurrrrrr

But wait! what about other matchups?

You don't CARE if they set Abysslinde
Make an Abyss Dweller, equip Big Bang Shot, and PUNISH THEM
No Atlantean Dragoons can hope to challenge your beastly 2100 atk!

Darn! Prophecies! (aka "dig through 1/3 of your deck in 1 turn" bullshit.dek)
Punish them for summoning Blue Boy!
Run him over for HUGE DAMAGE
They'll be calling him Red Boy after you gut him and drench him in his own blood!
but then they replenish their hand for free anyway slurp

Critics will say it's BAD
They're probably right
They won't be laughing when you pierce their monsters for REAL DAMAGE
Then you can throw their cards over the side of a moving cruise ship (Kaiba Corp certified of course) and tell them yea it's BAD ASS

For further punishment, side in those UNITED WE STANDS
Boost your guys with the power to inflict MORE DAMAGE!






*** pls take this post with a grain of salt, I am not being serious
like at all

my side is probably shit lol
yes I am unwilling to shell out for The Best Deck so I'm being bad and stuck here testing and/or playing underperforming rogue decks ok
Prophecy is cancer
kill me now
