[Deck Profile] Angel Tour Guide

So now that we have discussed the new Banning List in the last Blog Entry, MasterSephiroth and me are going to feature the first Decks we’re are going to play for the first few weeks.

What I have prepared this Time is a Chaos Deck which uses the Effects of Herald of Perfection and Djinn Releaser of Rituals which I’ve decided to name Angel Tour Guide.

Main Deck:

Monster (30):
3x Herald of Perfection
1x Archlord Kristya
3x Master Hyperion
3x Manju of the Ten Thousand Hands
3x Agent of Mystery - Earth
2x Agent of Creation - Venus
2x Mystical Shine Ball
1x Honest
1x Sangan
2x Djinn Releaser of Rituals
3x Tour Guide from the Underworld
1x Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning
2x Chaos Sorcerer
2x Tragoedia
1x Emissary of Darkness Gorz

Spell (10):
3x Dawn of the Herald
3x Preparation of Rites
1x Pot of Duality
1x Monster Reborn
1x Heavy Storm
1x Book of Moon

Trap (0):

Extra Deck:
1x Stardust Dragon
1x Light End Dragon
1x Scrap Dragon
1x Scrap Archfiend
1x Black Rose Dragon
1x Brionac Dragon of the Ice Barrier
1x Gaia Knight the Force of the Earth
1x Ally Justice Catastor
1x Armory Arm
2x No. 17 Leviathan Dragon
1x No. 39 Utopia
1x Steelswarm Roach
1x Leviair Dragon
1x Gachi Gachi Gantetsu

A Deck which Special Summons and swarms the Field while preventing the Opponent from doing so sounds like a decent solution for a Control Deck oriented Player to try out. However, since facing a Twilight Deck in the upcoming Format seems very likely, the weakness of Herald of Perfection is most likely going to show up. That is, that Herald of Perfection is a Monster with a rather Low Attack and a High Defense. In other words, if you play it in Attack Position, Twilight Players will tend to overrun it with a Wulf, Garoth or a Jain, if it’s in Defense Position, they will naturally use Ehren to do the Job. So they can overcome this Defensive Wall anyway even without their Ace Monsters such as Chaos Sorcerer, Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning, Dark Armed Dragon or Judgment Dragon.

So after trying this Deck out for a week, a lot of changes were made and I came up with using the Secret Weapon of this year’s World Champion; Gachi Gachi Gantetsu. So, while I tested this Deck out first by running 2 Agent of Mystery – Earth, 2 Agent of Miracle – Jupiter, 2 Agent of Judgment – Saturn and 2 Master Hyperion ended up being weak against Sworn Decks I’ve ended up by playing 3 Agent of Mystery – Earth, 2 Agent of Creation – Venus, 2 Mystical Shine Ball and 3 Master Hyperion instead. So as a conclusion the Goal is to have a Special Summoning Negating Herald of Perfection in Attack Position on the Field accompanied by a Gachi Gachi Gantetsu in Defense Position.

You may notice that this Deck is running Tour Guides of the Underworld and that it is used not only to summon Sangan but also 2 Djinn Releaser of Rituals which is not affected by either XYZ-Summon Rulings.

People might also notice, that I only run 1 Archlord Kristya, and that usually Angel Decks run 2… however, it proves to be often a Death Draw and also seem to be proven less useful in this Deck since it’s running on Djinns.

People may also wonder why I run 2 Tragoedia in a Deck which is destined to be low on Hand Cards. But as a fact you actually always end up with up to 5 – 7 cards in your hand as long you do not control a Herald of Perfection, so in the end, Tragoedia proved to be a really nice Splash for this Deck whether as a Chaos Fodder, Stall Beat Stick or as a XYZ – Material as long you have a Monster in your Graveyard which shares the same Level with a Monster on your Field or in the case of having a Djinn in your Graveyard it will deal as an Instant Ritual Summon with only releasing one Monster, namely Tragoedia.

Whether you want to try this Deck out or prefer running another Deck, from my testing I came to the conclusion that this deck is by no means stable. However, in the other hand it proves to be quite a nasty deck for any kind of Decks, even if it’s against a Deck which hardly uses any Special Summons. So, feel free to try it out.
