Extreme Victoryhas a lot of great cards that can go in a lot of great Decks. One card that can go inanyDeck, or Side Deck, isDebunk.
Debunkis a Counter Trap Card that you use when an Effect Monster’s effect activates in the hand or Graveyard.Debunknegates that effect andbanishesthe offending monster. The great thing aboutDebunkis that you can use it in almost every Deck, and against almost every Deck! Let’s look at some of the popular decksDebunkcounters.
Blackwing Decks have been a staple of the tournament scene for a long time. More and more, Blackwing Duelists are using multiple copies ofBlackwing – Vayu the Emblem of Honor.Debunknegates Vayu and removes it from play, leaving your opponent struggling to find a completely new play. You can also negate the effect ofBlackwing – Kalut the Moon Shadowor the upcomingBlackwing – Jetstream the Blue Sky,so you’ll always have a good use for it! These builds also like to useGorz the Emissary of DarknessandTragoedia, giving you even more card effects to halt in their tracks with the power ofDebunk.
Plant Decks have steadily grown in popularity over the last year or so, with the release of powerful new support likeSporeandGlow-Up Bulb, we’ve seen more and more Plant Decks at the top tables of tournaments. Unfortunately for Plant duelists,Debunkstops them dead in their tracks. From the two monsters I mentioned above to the all-importantDandylion,Debunkcan negate them all and remove them from play, and with only one of each of those monsters in their Deck, no Plant duelist wants to see any of those monsters get forced out of the game permanently.
Frog Monarchs are also deathly afraid ofDebunk, since a large part of their strategy hinges onTreeborn Frog. A well-timed activation ofDebunkcan ruin their whole strategy! If your opponent doesn’t have theirTreeborn Frog, they’ll probably rely on Gorz,Tragoedia, orBattle Faderto get their Tribute Monsters on the field. Thankfully,Debunkhits all of those cards as well! WithDebunkSet, you can make your moves confident in the fact that your opponent will not stand a chance.
But what if you’re not facing one of those Decks? IsDebunkgoing to be useless? Of course not,Debunkhits some of the most popular cards in the current tournament scene. With the growing popularity of cards likeEffect VeilerandMaxx “C”, as well as the already highly popularGorz the Emissary of Darkness, you’ll almost always have a use forDebunk. This allows you playDebunkdefensively as well as offensively, by protecting your big plays from being shut down by any of those cards.
While you might not have room for it in their Main Deck, I think it’s fair to say that you should try your best to getDebunkinto your Side Deck. We’re be seeing a lot of it in the weeks to come!
