Been 2 weeks since the last post. Since these days I'm pretty bored playing with "meta" decks, I decided to have a little fun with the new Structure deck "Assault of the Fire King" as well as cards from the newly released booster pack "Cosmo Blazer" known as [Haze Beasts]. Credits entitled to my friend Albert a.k.a Turboham for play testing with me after work on one fine day and inspiring me to give this archetype a try.
We all know that the newly released structure deck is of the Fire attribute and the cards included inside it can be used for the recently released 2 kinds of archetypes included in "Cosmo Blazer" known as [Fire Fist] and [Haze Beast]. However today we are just going to have a short introduction to [Haze Beasts].
The following cards were selected for my new [Haze Beast] deck.
[Haze Beast Cerberus]
Effect Monster/Fire/Beast/LV 6
You can Normal Summon this card without Tributing, but its original ATK becomes 1000. This face-up card cannot be targeted by your opponent's card effects. When this card is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard: You can add 1 "Haze" card from your Deck to your hand.
Review: The "E-HERO Stratos" of the deck. A good tutor card that can be summoned without any tributes though it weakens itself to a mere 1000 ATK. However that can be a good advantage when combo-ed with cards such as [Chain Destruction]. Do note that Cerberus does not need to be destroyed while on the field. As long as its being destroyed and sent to the graveyard, its effect to search a card out will still activate. Combo this with [Chain Destruction] is good!
JF12-JPA07 / SD24-JP007
[Haze Beast Hipogrifo]
Effect Monster/Fire/Pyro/LV 6
Your opponent cannot target this card with card effects. Once per turn: You can Tribute 1 FIRE monster you control; this card gains 300 ATK.
Review: Nothing much useful for this card's effect. The only good thing about this card is because of its 200 DEF! Can be used with [Rekindling]!
[Haze Beast Peryton]
Effect Monster/Fire/Pyro/LV 6
Must be Special Summoned by the effect of a "Haze Beast" monster, and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. This face-up card cannot be targeted by your opponent's card effects. You can send 1 FIRE monster from your hand to the Graveyard, then Tribute this card; Special Summon 2 "Haze Beast" monsters from your Deck. You can only use the effect of "Haze Beast Peryton" once per turn.
Review: The "Rescue Cat/Rescue Rabbit" of the deck. Ability to call upon another 2 [Haze Beasts] from your deck is powerful and allows quick XYZ summoning.
[Haze Beast Basilicock]
XYZ/Effect Monster/Fire/Pyro/Rank 6
2 or more Level 6 FIRE monsters (max. 5)
Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card to target 1 monster your opponent controls or in their Graveyard; banish that target. This card gains effects based on the number of Xyz Material it has.
• 3+: This card gains 200 ATK and DEF for each Xyz Material attached to it.
• 4+: This card cannot be targeted by your opponent's Spells, Traps, or card effects.
• 5: This card cannot be destroyed by card effects.
Review: A very surprisingly strong XYZ monster for the [Haze Beasts]. The ability to remove away from game one monster that is controlled by your opponent is good. Easy kill against monsters such as [Sangan], [Mermail Abysslinde] and many more. Don't worry about having not enough materials to get the other 3 effects. 1 copy of [Rekindling] is enough to do it, but who would wanna spend 5 monsters just to summon 1? Heard of [Solemn Warning] and you go AHHHHHH~?
You can Tribute Summon "Haze Beast" monsters with 1 less Tribute than required. Once per turn: You can target 1 Xyz Monster you control; attach 1 "Haze Beast" monster you control or in your hand to that target as an Xyz Material.
Review: Able to summon [Haze Beast Peryton] easily. The effect of increasing a XYZ monster's overlay material is situational at times. Giving your [Haze Beast Basilicock] an extra overlay material to gain additional effects is good~!

Tournament report for Friday Night YGO at SG Cardmart
First Match VS Poh Seng (Evilswarm)
This matchup is an auto-loss if you get what I mean! How to win against [Evilswarm Ophion]?!
Second Match VS Shaun Lin (HERO Beat)
First game he got controlled and rushed down by multiple [Haze Beast Basilicock]
Second game was almost the same situation just that partnered with [Constellar Ptolemys Messier 7]
Third Match VS Zai Liang (Dino Rabbit)
Bad hand all the way~~
Conclusion: Since my idea is still just a prototype, didnt expect anything fantastic for the first time~ Still need much much more tuning to the deck. Any ideas guys~?
Well till then to my next update! I'm off to sleep~~~
