Ally of Justice Catastor, Part 1 | The Irish Duelist

Ally of Justice Catastor, Part 1


“Ally of Justice Catastor” was recently released in Hidden Arsenal, and it quickly became one of the most powerful and useful Synchro Monsters in the game. At Level 5, it’s very easy to Summon and can be used in any Deck. It also has a very powerful effect that lets it destroy any non-DARK monster that it battles.

Calling Out Your Ally
“Ally of Justice Catastor” does not need any specific Tuners or non-Tuners, so it can be played in any Deck that can Synchro Summon monsters. Some Decks have many different ways of bringing it out, but almost everyone should be able to bring it out at least once per Duel.

Catastor is very easy to Summon in a Blackwing Deck. Whenever you Normal Summon “Blackwing – Blizzard the Far North,” you can Special Summon another Blackwing monster from your Graveyard. If you bring out “Blackwing – Kalut the Moon Shadow” with Blizzard’s effect, you’ll be able to Synchro Summon your Catastor. Another combo that Blackwing Decks can use is to Special Summon “Blackwing – Vayu the Emblem of Honor” with the effect of “Blackwing – Shura the Blue Flame.” When Shura destroys a monster in battle and sends it to the Graveyard, you can Special Summon Vayu from your Deck. Vayu’s effect is then negated because of Shura, which means you can use it for a Synchro Summon even while it’s on the field! It’s also a Level 1 Tuner, so you can combine it with Shura to summon Catastor right away.

Catastor is also very easy to Summon in a Lightsworn Deck. Most Lightsworn Decks use “Plaguespreader Zombie,” which can be Special Summoned from your Graveyard by putting a card from your hand to the top of your Deck. Since you’ll be filling up your Graveyard very quickly with the effects of lots of different Lightsworn cards, you’ll have that Plaguespreader ready in no time. Once it’s in the Graveyard all you need is a Level 3 monster on your side of the field. “Lumina, Lightsworn Summoner” and “Aurkus, Lightsworn Druid” would be the two that most Duelists play in their Decks, so just Summon one of those, use Plaguespreader’s effect, and you’ve got your Catastor.

There are lots of other ways to Summon Catastor too. In any deck that uses Beast-type monsters, like X-Sabers or Ojamas, you can use “Rescue Cat” to bring out an instant Catastor! First you play “Rescue Cat,” and then use its effect to bring out “X-Saber Airbellum” and a Level 2 Beast-type monster like “Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter” or “Ojama Yellow.” You now have a Level 3 Tuner and a Level 2 non-Tuner that you can use to bring out “Ally of Justice Catastor.”

Another easy way to Summon Catastor is by playing “Junk Synchron,” one of Yusei’s favourite monsters. When you Normal Summon “Junk Synchron” you can Special Summon a Level 2 monster from your Graveyard, which gives you exactly the Levels you need for “Ally of Justice Catastor!”
