PUELLA MAGI MADOKA MAGICA Deck Tech: Blue Red Sayaka & Kyoko

Welcome back to the Weiss Schwarz Weekly Column!

In this week’s column, I would like to share my thoughts about one of the winners’ deck list from the Bushiroad World Championship 2015 that caught my attention.
It is one of my personal favorite titles and I’m delighted to learn that this deck has won the United Kingdom Regional Qualifier.

First of all, let’s take a look at the deck list!

The Core Mechanic

Meisters who have played with a Blue Red PUELLA MAGI MADOKA MAGICA deck would be very familiar with the “Kyoko Shares an Apple” and “Second-year of Mitakihara Middle School, Sayaka” combo. This 2-card combo looks simple, but is actually the key to setting up for future turns.

By repeatedly playing “Kyoko Shares an Apple” every turn, you will always have an attacker with at least 6500 power in “Second-year of Mitakihara Middle School, Sayaka”, which will save you a lot of stock. The stock is then used in the late game for more powerful Character cards and abilities.

Additionally, without any Climax card combo in this deck, you can use a Climax card to deal more damage to your opponent anytime.

If you are running out of gas at Level 2, fret not! “Magical Girl Appears” can quickly replenish your hand and stage. By retrieving 2 “Kyoko Shares an Apple”, you can get yourself 4 Character cards on the field and 2 of them are at least 7500 power for only 3 stock.

The New Stuff

This deck list may look similar to those prior to the release of Booster Pack PUELLA MAGI MADOKA MAGICA THE MOVIE -Rebellion-, but it is now further powered-up with some new utility and support cards. These new additions to the title gives this PUELLA MAGI MADOKA MAGICA deck more compatibility to the current environment.

One of these awesome new cards is “One Guided By the Law of the Cycle, Sayaka”, which allows you to threaten your opponent with a strong board presence by summoning an early Level 3 Character card. With its ability to grant bonus power to any character to the field, it also adds to the meister’s defensive options.

Another addition to the arsenal is “Doubt Towards the World, Kyoko”. This card can deal with any tricky Level 1 character, as well as giving your character that little power boost that they will need to defeat your opponent’s Character card.


Many experienced players tend to play a 3-color deck for more choice of Character or Event cards. Although it is not being played in this deck list, “Time Regressor, Homura” is one of the most popular cards played in PUELLA MAGI MADOKA MAGICA decks. Even if you are playing a Blue Red deck, you might want to consider playing a few Green cards just to play this card. Being able to refresh your deck without taking refresh damage or giving your field a mass power boost could be the key to winning you an important game.

Another Green character card you could consider is “Hope and Acceptance, Homura”. The Sayaka & Kyoko deck lacks a finisher that can efficiently end the game, and this card is the perfect Character card for that job. If you do not like the idea of playing 3 colors in a deck, you could try out “Kyoko Sakura”, which can fill the same role.
