This Bulb Takes Awhile to Light Up – Yu-Gi-Oh! Wave of Light Review

VANAPHASE™ the Vanadium powerhouse!

Celestial fairies and counter traps take a while to yield results in this structure deck – Yu-Gi-Oh! Wave of Light Review

Konami recent released the Wave of Light structure deck. This deck comes with a 41-card deck and a Token Card. Here’s the ratio of card rarities:

36- Common

3- Super Rare

2- Ultra Rare

1- Token

The Wave of Light structure deck focuses on the fairy counter strategy and features the returned of Airknight Parshath. If you want more details on the deck specks, you can watch the unboxing video above or read our announcement piece.

Now onto the review. I am personally not a fan of the fairy counter strategy. While counter trap cards are among the most annoying and powerful, I never seemed able to get a good combo going with this deck. Now structure decks are great ways for beginners to get some powerful cards and play with a fairly well put together deck, but most tend to not hold up to expertly crafted decks. The only decks I’ve used that seemed contender worthy out of the box were Yugi’s Exodia/Egyptian Gods deck in one of the character boxes and the Legendary Dragons Deck in the Legendary Dragons BoxWave of Light, in comparison, is a dim light.

I used the Wave of Light structure deck against my fully customized Legendary Dargon Deck, and it just could not keep up with the speed of play. I also used it against my Red Eyed Warriors deck and again it does not keep up with the speed of play. You’re supposed to be able to essentially summon and re-summon Airknight Parshath and other fairies over and over again, but the card combinations never matched up. What was most disappointing was, even after multiple duels, I could never summon Airknight Parshath’s upgrade, Sacred Arch-Airknight Parshath. To special summon it requires to activation of a counter trap and the banishing of two fairies. It seems like a card that is useful in a longer duel, but it never really gets to that point against a lot of character-based decks.

As a standalone deck, it does offer a decent base for the fairy counter strategy, but it requires a lot of switching and tinkering to be effectively used. As a collection of cards, it really only serves the fairy counter strategy. The spell and trap cards that come in the box are largely geared toward fairy cards. There are a handful of monsters that would make great additions to Light decks, like Gellen Duo and Guiding Light, but in large this deck is only good for duelists who revolve around fairy and counter trap strategies.

Out of the 5 or so duels I had using this deck, I got an Airknight Parshath combo started once. It is a really fun combo to pull off, but in my opinion, it takes the same amount of effort drawing all the pieces of Exodia. As a general rule as a duelist, if you’re going to put in Exodia effort, might as well just use Exodia. Also, Exodia is much less risky since you don’t have to spend any life points as you wait. But I might be biased, as I am not a fan of these strategies nor am I an expert at them. If you are a fan/user of these strategies, please give me advice on how to make these cards work and I will gladly update my review. Otherwise, I give the Yu-Gi-Oh! Wave of Light Structure Deck a 2/5.
