The Synchro x Xyz Festival is going live in a couple of hours, and we're here to take a look at the Loaner Decks! Only one of the decks truly embraces the spirit of the Festival, allowing you to both Synchro and Xyz Summon, while the other two does one each. Let's take a look at each and see which is the best!
Intersection of Two Colors
The second best deck of the bunch, and the only one that lets you both Synchro and Xyz Summon, with a combination of Pendulum Magician and Odd-Eyes cards. It focuses strongly on Pendulum Summoning to get your Monsters on the field, as every single Monster in the Main Deck and a third of those in the Extra Deck are Pendulum Monsters. Your main goal is to get out your Rebellion Monsters from the Extra Deck to defeat your opponent.
The Xyz deck of the 3, and by far the worst one, but it's helped by the lack of Link Monsters that would otherwise hinder them from using their special effects. The Ghostrick archetype focuses on effects that activate when you flip them face-up, and they can't be Normal Summoned if you don't control another Ghostrick. All this makes the deck quite slow and weak, so you're better off with the other options.
Dark Blade Looming Over the Swordsoul
Last, but most certainly not least, we have a Swordsoul deck. This one focuses on Synchro summoning your cards, and is by far the best among your options. We have a guide on how to play Swordsoul, so go give that a read, but keep in mind the deck isn't at full power, especially because of the lack of Tenyi in the Festival.
