Mwahahahahahaha and welcome to the 9th CX’s deck techs! For this deliciously insidious addition to our collection, we are going to be looking at a list that is strictly Anti-Waifu!
Just as advertised – if you have a friend with !@($& taste and want to toss his or her waifu into the dumpster, this is the deck for you! The list is brought to you by 2014 NA WGP Nationals competitor David Velez.
Translations can be found on Heart of the Cards
. Names will be matched to reflect the translation notes. If translations are unavailable for the card, in-house translations will be used.
All sets are either released in English or set for release in English. Names may overlap between HotC translations and Bushiroad official translations.
Disclaimer: We are again not responsible for any loss of friendship you may experience as a result of using this deck. This is especially true if you are adhering to the Proper Play Standards™ for this deck which will be explained later in the article. In all seriousness, this deck is best for when you want to troll the living daylights out of your good friend, your local player base, your otaku sister, etc. and should be taken in good fun. There are also some plot spoilers in here for SAO II. You have been warned!
Now before we get to the how-to, we have to get to the list!

Edit: You may notice that there is no Oberon in this deck. That is because we don’t deal with people with negative KDs. None of this tryhard garbage, no.
At level 0, we have 16 characters.
You can pay 1 stock and rest two characters you control to give Laughing Coffin +2500 power and +1 soul until end of turn.
Super jelly donut Kuradeel can put a level 0 or lower character on your opponent’s center stage into stock for 1 stock.
When you play the Bait™, you can pay 1 and put the top card of your deck into clock to search for up to 1 level 2 or higher character.
When the Living Legend appears from your hand, he gets +1500 power until end of turn.
Legendary Waifu Killer A gives all other [Weapon] characters you control +500 power, and all characters on your opponent’s center stage [Target].
Guns have recoil, so at the beginning of your draw step you might get hit for 1.
David has deemed Kyouji ‘thirsty boi’, and so “thirsty boi” gets +1000 power and +1 level as long as you control 1 or fewer other characters. The character opposite of our hero thirsty boi gains [Target].
At level 1, we have 14 cards: 10 characters and 4 events.
If the character that Waifu Killer battles has [Target], Waifu Killer becomes a level reverser. You can also pay 1 stock and rest 2 characters you control to choose a character your opponent controls and give it -1 level and [Target] until end of turn.
When Waifu Killer appears (literally) on your stage, you can put the top card of your deck into clock to choose a character that costs 1 or less on your opponent’s center stage. That character doesn’t stand during your opponent’s next stand phase.
Everyone knows that when Asuna gets #rekt you get to give a character you control +3500 power until end of turn.
Our Wonderful Leader Heathcliff is a charming 1 cost 7000 power character. The [Weapon] trait is relevant, seriously.
At level 2, we have 8 characters.
Thirsty boi again here, this time giving all [Weapon] characters you control +1000 power and all characters on your opponent’s back stage [Target].
#nottoosoon #mantra #saolyfe
There are times that you want to look at life in the face and say “no”. There are also times where using a 50 lb. club would be much more effective. Our refined leader looks at the choice between “words” and “force” and says, “Yes.” He has a CX combo: when he attacks, you can Bounce a cost 1 or lower character your opponent controls and this card cannot be reversed until end of turn. (LITERALLY INVINCIBLE)
Waifu Killer has a mad, raging !
(@*&$ thirst for your [Target] Waifus, so if he sees one on your opponent’s board he gets +3000 power until the end of your opponent’s next turn.
At level 3, we only need 1 character.
When Waifu Killer Sterben attacks, if all your opponent’s characters are targets (have [Target]), you may deal 1 damage to your opponent. It has a CX combo that isn’t used in this deck.
The CX spread is all 1k1 effects, with 4 Door and 4 Burn triggers.
How do we use this deck?
Remember the mantra:
20000 hours in GIMP right here folks
If you can’t shout it at your opponent at the top of your lungs, you have a problem, and shouldn’t use this deck at all. Remember, this is a deck for those who have the courage to stand up for their (obviously correct) beliefs that his or her waifu is truly #1 and no one else can come close. Everyone else must be mad, bad, and therefore inferior. This deck must serve as a channel for sending that message!
So at level 0, do not react to anything. Simply glare at your opponent as you clock and draw. Every turn you should be killing something and cackling menacingly with every character reversed. Every encore should be met with a large frown, but you must not look pathetic.
This is correct:
This, is not:
By level 1, your wonderful Leader Heathcliff should be being backed up by Waifu Killer, laying waste to your opponent’s waifus left and right.
Light drooling is appropriate, but don’t get it on your cards.
If you are playing against SAO and you know your opponent loves Asuna, showing him or her the Sacrifice event every time it appears in your hand is mandatory. That way you can yell “SHE GOT WRECKED” and your message is sure to get through. If playing over the internet, CAPS LOCK IS YOUR FRIEND.
At level 2, most of your deck’s damage will already be done. By this point, you should be actively shouting and howling at every kill. If your KD is below 1.0 disconnect immediately and remember to flip the table on your way out. Because lag.
For maximum style points, announce every game action you take as “Swag”. Your opponent attacks for 2 and it sticks? You don’t announce, “Sticks,” you announce “#2swag”.
If someone attempts to tell you that the deck is not 100% dedicated because you have a copy of a Sinon in the deck, just remind them that Sinon ALWAYS gets wrecked. …and in the event that you are able to actually use her to reverse another character just point and laugh at how that camping idiot got knifed. ggggggg
In conclusion, remember the Proper Play Standards™ for the Anti-Waifu deck:
- YOUR WAIFU IS !(*&#$!!!!!!!!
- YOUR WAIFU IS !@*&$(!!!!!!
- Every time you attack, you must shout “GET WREEEEECKKKKKEDDDDD”
- There is no such thing as losing with this deck. It’s only because these lucker noobs got fed and won the base race.
