- Ritual Beast Tamers:
Ritual Beast Tamer Elder:
Elder allows you to normal summon another Ritual Beast monster from your hand when he is normal summoned. This card is the best out of the 3 Tamers because he allows you to normal summon the spiritual beast, allowing you to keep its 1 special summon per turn, which is crucial in extending your combos.
Play 3- You want to see this card in your hand turn 1
Ritual Beast Tamer Wen:
Wen allows you to special summon a ritual beast from your banished zone when she is normal summoned. Seeing how most of your ritual beasts will end up banished anyway, this card is an excellent recovery tool if your field is nuked. It also combos very well with Gold Sarcophagus as a starting play. However, if you already have board presence established i would avoid using this card as it wastes your special summon, which as discussed later on, it crucial to extending combos and getting extra searches.
Play 2- A bit too situational to warrant its place at 3
Ritual Beast Tamer Lara:
Lara allows you to special summon a ritual beat from your graveyard when she is normal summoned. Lara combos well with either Tempest or Foolish Burial in starting your combos. Its utility parallels that of Wen and you should refrain from using it if you already have an established board in order to keep your special summons.
Play 2- Pretty much the same reason as Wen
- Spiritual Beasts:
The Spiritual Beasts:
Spiritual Beast Cannahawk:
This is your most important Spiritual Beast. It allows you to banish 1 ritual beast monster from your deck, tamer or beast, and retrieve it 2 turns later(you will rarely use this part of the effect). It loads your banished zone for reverse-contact fusioning and combos extremely well with Elder turn 1, almost ensuring you a full board next turn as well as protection.
Run 3- No exceptions
Spiritual Beast Apelio:
Apelio allows you to banish any Ritual Beast Card from your graveyard and gives every single Ritual Beast you control will gain 500 attack, meaning even if you contact him out or summon monsters after using Apelio’s effect they will still receive the boost. This card works extremely well in extending your combos, providing fodder for Ulti-Cannahawk which will be discussed later. Note that you can use this during either player’s turn.
Run 2-3 Depending on preference
Spiritual Beast Pettlephin:
Pettlephin allows you to banish any Ritual Beast card from your hand to bounce one card your opponent controls. Pettlephin’s effect is quite situation, but can be an out to problem fields such as Nekroz’s Djinn lock. Pettlephin also combos well with Debris Dragon, allowing you to make any Rank 4, most notably Lightning Chidori. Most of the time, this will be simply be used as contact/reverse contact fodder.
Run 1-2 Depending on preference
Spiritual Beast Rampengu:
Rampengu is allows you to banish 1 ulti-ritual beast from your extra and deck and send to the graveyard a corresponding spiritual beast. Its effect allows you to deck thin and provide fodder for ulti-cannahawk. If not cannahawk, then you want to see this card turn 1.
Run 2-3 You want to maximize your chance of getting this or cannahawk turn 1.
- Ultimate Ritual Beasts:
The Ultimate Ritual Beasts-
Ritual Beast Ulti-Cannahawk:
Ulti-Cannahawk allows you to return 2 of your banished ritual beast cards to the grave to search 1 ritual beast card from your deck. This card pretty much makes the deck. The tricks and gimmicks you can pull off with it parallels the things you could do with Infernity. With the proper set-up, you can ensure a definite plus every single turn. The specifics will be discussed down below.
Run 3- You are probably going to dump one for pengu effect so it’s safer to run 3.
Ritual Beast Ulti-Apelio
Ulti-Apelio has an star-eater-esque effect where it is unaffected by other cards during the damage step. Note that this does not stop it from being countered by Honest and Kalut. Also note that it states that it is unaffected by all effects, it loses the boost from Apelio if you attack. This is your offensive card and you will be using it to push for damage without fear of d-prison or mirror force.
Run 3- If you are going for damage, most likely you are going to be making more than 1 per turn. You also might banish 1 for rampengu so its best to play it safe and run 3.
Ritual Beast Ulti-Pettlephin
Ulti-Pettlephin is a pure defensive card that has the effect where it cannot be destroyed by card effects. In this era where everything does everything BUT destroy, this card’s utility is minimal. However if you decide to play either Dark Hole or Torrential Tribute, you can make this to ensure that your field stays safe.
Run 1-2- If you want to make the card run 2, if you want to use it only to dump pettlephin from rampengu run 1.
- Ritual Beast Spells and Traps:
- Note that these too can be searched off of Ulti-Cannahawk
Ritual Beast’s Bond:
It allows you to contact fusion and is in the form of a quick-play spell card. This card’s utility is minimized to either putting enough damage on board to OTK, or to contact your monsters during your opponent’s turn into Ulti-Pettlephin in order to survive. Definitely not my favorite card.
Run 0-1- Up to preference but do not run more than one
Ritual Beast Steeds
This card allows you to destroy monsters your opponent controls up to the number of ritual beast monster you have. Note that this card does not target, so everything happens upon resolution, meaning that your opponent cannot chain anything once you destroy their monsters. This card is amazing because of the fact that it is SEARCHABLE. This card allows you to establish enormous field presence and forces your opponent to play around it if they know you have it. Always remember to reverse-contact before using this in order to get the biggest use out of it. You can also use emergency teleport to grab a tamer before using this if you’re desperate for that extra pop.
Run 3- A must
RItual Beast Ambush
This card allows you special summon 1 Tamer and 1 Beast from your grave and/or banished zone. This card not only combos well with ulti-cannahawk, its searchable by it as well. You can return your targets to grave with ulti-cannahawk, search this card, and special summon them during your opponent’s end phase for a nifty+2 as well as avoiding the ritual beast’s summon once per turn as well as Ambush restriction.
Run 2-3- Some people choose to run 2 because it can be dead early. I say screw those people, run 3
Tempest, Dragon Ruler of Storms: Combos well with Ulti-Cannahawk, allowing you to banish monsters that were sent to the grave by its effect. Acts like a 2400 beater and can search Debris Dragon Run 1Run None Because It's Banned Debris Dragon Searchable by Tempest’s discard effect. Can make rank 4, most notably Chidori, with Pettlephin. Run 1Don't Run Because No Tempest
Grabs Tamers out of the deck.
Hurts almost every single other deck out there. Doesn’t hurt you at all.
Banishes anything you want out of the deck. Requires no explanation
Same Reason as D-fissure
- Read This:
This deck takes a lot of thinking and planning to pilot efficiently. You need to know your in’s and out’s to everything and plan ahead. The only way to develope said knowledge is by practicing. However, if you don’t know the basics of playing this deck yet, here are a few tips and tricks to help you out.
Tip #1: Focus on banishing 1 of each Ritual Beast monster from your deck. With 2 cannahawk’s and 2 Pengu’s paired with your Apelio’s this should not be difficult.
Tip #2: Think of your Tamers and Beasts in “pairs” and banish them/summon them accordingly. When first playing the deck it can be difficult to keep track of your summons. Therefore you can mentally pair your Tamers with Beasts so instead of keeping track of 6 summons each turn you only have to keep track of 3. The way I do it is, Cannahawk-Elder, Wen-Apelio, Lara-Pettlephin/Pengu.
Tip# 3: Realize that you have 3 Tamers and 4 Spiritual Beasts for a reason. Even if you normal summon Wen/Lara and special summon a ritual beast you still have 3 pairs of monsters that aren’t special summoned yet, if you have an established banish zone.
Essential Ulti-Cannahawk Tricks and Gimmicks: READ IF YOU WANT TO PLAY THE DECK CORRECTLY
Ulti-cannahawk has a strange ruling on it that is, if you use its search effect, only 1 of the targets have to go to the grave in order for you to recieve your search. You can pair this with the fact that you can chain its secondary quick effect to reverse-contact to its first, allowing you to reverse-contact and search with only 3 ritual beast monsters banished. This creates a loop-able combo that literally is the reason this deck can compete.
You will need Elder and Cannahawk in hand.

[*]Use Cannahawk to banish Apelio from your deck
