Three of the best Decks to come out of the GX-era are Gladiator Beasts, Six Samurai, and HERO Decks. All three are still alive and doing well today! Read on to learn more about these three Decks and how they’ve been good for so long.
In the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME, the Decks you see winning are able to consistently perform the combos that help them win the game. By being able to search for the right cards at the right times, a Duelist lowers the risk of having cards that don’t work together. These 3 Decks can easily search out the cards they need, which is one of the secrets to their success.
The Six Samurai debuted in Strike of Neos about 4 years ago. Back then there were only six, along with Grandmaster of the Six Samurai, and Great Shogun Shien. They did pretty well, even winning a Championship, but they eventually lost popularity. Storm of Ragnarok changed all that with its Legendary Six Samurai, vaulting them back into the public eye with new monsters, Spells, and Traps.
The new Legendary Six Samurai are quite powerful, and changed the basic way you play the Deck. Before, you used to try to protect 1 Samurai so that you could Summon a second and use both of their effects. Now, you search for low-Level Samurai that can Special Summon and use them to perform quick Synchro Summons. Samurai Decks use cards like Shien’s Smoke Signal and Asceticism of the Six Samurai to quickly find the monsters they need, whileLegendary Six Samurai – Shi En brings the pain with 2500 ATK and the ability to negate Spells and Traps. Currently, they also use the Naturia Synchro Monsters to complement Shi En and protect it. The ability to Summon Synchro Monsters to block any type of card makes the Samurai Deck is a solid contender at all Levels of play.
The Gladiator Beasts share a few traits with The Six Samurai. They all have different Attributes, and constantly search out the monsters they need. But to gain a new Gladiator Beast, they have to “tag out” by battling and then returning to the Deck! After they do, a new Gladiator Beast is Summoned in the old one’s place and its effect is activated. Gladiator Beast Decks have been good since their introduction in Gladiator’s Assault, with a Championship win before getting Gladiator Beast Gyzarus and plenty more after.
Thanks to their tag team abilities and wide variety of available effects, Gladiator Beast Decks can adapt to any scenario. Their Gladiator Beast War Chariot even lets them negate monster effects and cripple opposing strategies. Even today, the Deck is still strong. A Hero Lives lets them easily access Elemental Hero Prisma, which can copy the name of the now-LimitedGladiator Beast Bestiari so that Gladiator Beast Gyzarus can be unleashed more easily.
HERO Monsters, used by Jaden and Aster in the anime, come in all shapes and sizes and can adapt to any situation. There are so many HERO Fusion Monsters now that building your Extra Deck is just as tough as building your Main Deck! While they ignored Fusion in favour of usingSkyscraper 2 – Hero City in the beginning, Fusion has become popular lately due to Super Polymerization and new Elemental HERO Fusions made of any HERO and a monster of a certain Attribute.
By stealing an opponent’s monster with Super Polymerization and combining it with an Elemental HERO monster you control (Elemental HERO Stratos is always a top choice), you can summon a powerful HERO Fusion Monster and your opponent can’t do anything about it. There are 5 such Fusions right now, making any non-DARK monster vulnerable to the wrath ofSuper Polymerization! Plus, with E – Emergency Call, Miracle Fusion, and Parallel World Fusion, HERO Decks have tons of ways Summon HERO Fusions by themselves.
These three Decks have come a long way since their debut. As more and more cards come out, all Decks are constantly getting better, and new Decks are being created all the time. Which cards from and Decks from Photon Shockwave will stand the test of time? No one knows for sure, but you can get a head start by visiting the Photon Shockwave Sneak Peek nearest you this weekend!
