Main Deck Analysis

So as you can see it was tech genus(duh!). The monster lineup is pretty standard fair.Tengu is always good and since this is a control deck that can take advantge of its power that is part of what makes this deck so good. Rai-oh pretty much sees play in almost any control/anti-meta build so no suprise their. The Tech genus monsters all come into play here with the good ones showing up and the ones that promote synchroing ommitted(cyber mag and catapult dragon).Rush Rhino is a big beater and coupled with horn of the phantom beast nets you pluses. Werewolf acts as a free special summon and also has the darksoul effect(all of the tech genus monsters in this build do) also it is the gateway for synchroying in the deck. Striker is the only tuner that is mained and really is the only tuner that is needed, all you really need to do is acess the good level 5's that tech genus has to offer(magician, gladiator, and librarian) plus it has the cyber dragon and darksoul effects so win win.

Moving on to the spells. There is really nothing to talk about everything is standard and good. Good lineup is good.

Now on to the traps call of the haunted is a personal choice so not much to say on that. Evac is standard fair in control(well alot of the times it is) and is a good "one of" card. Now with dark bribe at first glance of this deck I would have said ewww, but once I read Hansel's feature matches I can see why he included 2 of this card. It won him so many games and often the draw did not matter as he already had control of the game and bribe just maintained that control. 2 prision is good in control nuff said. Now we get to horn of the phantom beast which is in my view the best card in the deck. It makes Hansel's tengu bigger than everybody elese's tengus and nets plus ones. At the very least it is a one for one. Rush rhino can use it, and werewolf can use it, so there really are alot of targets. Mirror force is well mirror force. Oppression is well oppression. Skill drain is soooooo good for this deck seeing as all of his tech genus still get their search effects so good card is good. Warning's, judgment and torrential all standard. Hansel decided to run only one tg1, I personally would have found room for 2 but all in all the card is really good so I can't really see why he didn't run more of this card seeing as it screws over most of the meta but I think he dropped more copies of this card for a more defensive trap lineup. lastly we have dustshoot, which is always personal choice if you can go first and get a dustshoot off then you have a good shot at winning but if you can't then it can be dead but dustshoot is almost always a personal choice in my view.

Most interesting though is the exclusion of king tiger wanghu, which to my knowledge almost everybody else playing tech genus was playing wanghu, but then again everybody else didn't win. Hansel did.

So I will analyze his side deck during the next part of this segment. Thanks for reading!
