How Does Relinquished Chaos Work?
Relinquished Chaos accumulates card advantage by summoning copies of Manju of the Ten Thousand Hands and Senju to add more cards to your hand. This puts the opposing player in an awkward spot because if they use a card like Sakuresu Armor to deal with the monster, the trade ends negatively for them. For this reason, Relinquished Chaos doesn’t play Mystical Space Typhoon or Dust Tornado. However, if they don’t deal with Manju or Senju, you can pressure their lifepoints by continuing to attack.
Relinquished Chaos often plays a protective trap lineup to keep Manju of the Ten Thousand Hands and Senju from being attacked over. After you’ve added enough cards from your deck to your hand, you can use Graceful Charity, Card Destruction, or Reload to draw into stronger cards. The end game of the deck is mostly composed of summoning chaos monsters. With Divine Wrath, you can protect them from your opponent’s Thousand-Eyes Restricts, Chaos monsters, or Tribe-Infecting Virus.

Why Relinquished Chaos is Viable
Monsters that add a card from your deck to your hand when summoned, have been powerful throughout the history of Yu-Gi-Oh! Manju of the Ten Thousand Hands and Senju were the less powerful predecessors of gadgets and Elemental Hero Stratos. Being able to play powerful cards like Divine Wrath, Raigeki Break, and Cursed Seal of the Forbidden Spell without discarding an important card gives the deck an edge in particular matchups. Divine Wrath is strong against chaos decks, Cursed Seal of the Forbidden Spell is deadly against many combo decks, and Raigeki Break is among the most versatile traps in the format.
