Daunting Deletor, Oksizz

"Deletor" (根絶者デリーター Derītā) is a series of Alien cards with "Deletor" in its card name exclusive to the Link Joker clan, and introduced in Movie Trial Deck 1: Malefic Deletor.

Playstyle

This section requires a detailed explanation as a deck by itself.

There are 2 different ways to play this archetype;

The Vanish Delete style: You delete your opponent's vanguard but also you try to vanish delete as many cards as possible in order to gain certain benefits and even trigger the "Win condition" skill of Egorg.

The Power Delete style: You delete your opponent's vanguard, but however unlike the other style, your main focus is to attack multiple times with units that have high power as a manor to empty your opponent's hand and to inflict as much damage as possible.

As their name suggests, they focus on "Deleting" the opponent's vanguard, and forcing the opponent to "Vanish Delete" cards from drop zone, including a few locking effects.

Etymology

The majority of the names use a katakana that are obsolete in the current Japan, such as "wi" and "we" (ヰ and ヱ respectively). Also, the letter W in the Japanese romanization is silent (Example, Wokushizu reads as Oksizz). In the case of English, letter W is normally removed from the translation.

Background

Who are the Deletors?

"Brandt", the wandering planet that strays in the universe and devours the existence of everything standing in its orbit, had once appeared on the marching path of "Link Joker"'s main force long time ago. Billions of soldiers were devoured by Brandt and were thought to be destroyed, but there were survivors who managed to adapt to the planet's environment. They have spent ages to familiarize their bodies with the planet, and succeeded in developing a symbiotic relationship with the ominously-formed creatures parasiting Brandt. "Link Joker" refers to them as "Deletors", and releases them into the universe once again. They, who are now predominating the planet's environment, continue to trample across the galaxies with Brandt.

Trivia

  • Deletors have an odd trait of most of the grade 3 cards not having any "special mechanics" such as Limit Break, Legion, or Generation Break unlike almost every "boss card" released since Season 2.
  • The G units known so far have a habit of having "we", "wi", "wo" in their names.
  • This is the first series in Link Joker not to be mechanical or semi-mechanical, but completely organic.
  • Based on certain flavors such as those of Greion and Guim, the official translation for the kanji (根絶者 Konzetsusha) would mean "Exterminator".
  • In the Japanese version of the manga, they are written as "デリーター" without kanji.
  • In the manga, Deletors seem to be something like a minor group when compared to another group called "Star Corpse" (星骸 Seigai) whose leader is Planetary Corpse King, Brandt.
