Hey guys! So today I am doing good on my promise and reviewing Hansel Aguero's side deck. Here is the list:
1 Mobius the Frost Monarch
2 Puppet Plant
1 Thunder King Rai-Oh
1 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Nobleman of Crossout
2 Bottomless Trap Hole
2 Compulsory Evacuation Device
3 Dust Tornado
1 Starlight Road
1 The Transmigration Prophecy
So the whole purpose of the side deck is to be a extension of your main deck and Hansel portrayed that perfectly. The Mobius is quite smart for a few reasons. 1. since alot of the T.G monsters special summon themselves( striker, werewolf) you always have fodder for mobius, also since Hansel runs tengu mobius just fits in even better cause you tribute summon mobius pop 2 backrow, then special summon tengu is a real good play and applies so much pressure to your opponent. The puppet plant is also not very surprising as it is good against sams and gk's.
The rest of the side deck pretty much just maxes out on cards that Hansel could not max out on in the main. 1 rai-oh, 1 mst, 2 compulse. The triple dust tornados insure that warnings can't stop his summons and that six sams can't get off their broke combos that involve gateway, united, and sometimes dojo. Nobleman gets rid of raikos and spys, bottomless well is just bottomless.
Starlight road is a odd choice at first glance but after doing some thinking is good for 2 reasons. 1. T.G's already have a good resitance to the power cards(mirror force, dark hole, and torrential)not to mention blackrose,and with plants being so popular Hansel expected to see blackrose quite a bit.and starlight road just amplifies that resistance. 2. You do get a free stardust to protect your horn of the phantom beast and just like any other control deck T.G's rely alot on their backfield and stardust makes sure that the backfield stays in place.
The transmigartion prophecy is gaining steam right now. With plants relying heavily on the grave transmigration was a smart choice.
So that wraps up this post. Thanks for reading!
