Ishizu primarily plays an Egyptian Themed Fairy Deck in the anime. But in contrast to the traditional Fairy monsters, Ishizu's Fairies are EARTH and have Egyptian appearances. In various video games, she uses a wide variety of themes and monsters.

Ishizu primarily plays EARTH Fairy monsters which bear an Egyptian appearance. To counter Seto Kaiba's strategy of sending large amounts of cards to her Graveyard, her Deck revolved around returning his cards to his Deck so that she could activate "Exchange of the Spirit" and cause him to Deck Out. Yami Marik mentioned that Ishizu even defeated Marik in the past with her Deck.
