What happened to Tytannial, Princess of Camellias? One day she was in every Deck that played Lonefire Blossom, but now that Plant-based Decks are very popular, not a lot of Duelists are using the strongest Plant monster. Today we’re going to look at some of the benefits of adding Tytannial to your Deck, and why it’s a very important card to have when playing against certain Decks.
The March 1st Forbidden and Limited List dealt some solid blows to Plant Synchro Duelists. The Semi-Limitation of Debris Dragon made it a bit tougher to play aggressively, while the Limitation of Dandylion makes lucking into a loaded Graveyard with Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter really difficult. It also left the Deck vulnerable to D.D. Crow. Many Plant Synchro Duelists are trying to recover by playing more DARK monsters, aiming to take advantage of the newly-Unlimited Chaos Sorcerer.
But others are pursuing a new option: Nordics. The Nordic Deck is similar to Plant Synchro: both Decks win by making fast, efficient Synchro Summons, and both string together combos to make overwhelming plays. But for those courageous competitors brave enough to plunge into new territory, countless rewards await! Many are finding that whatever Plant Synchro can do, Nordics just do better. Let’s compare and contrast these 2 strategies, and examine the advantages the Nordic Deck wields.
For the past few months Plant Synchro has been a very strong Deck, winning 2 YCS events (Milan and Philadelphia). With little combos that result in big rewards and enough versatility for Duelists to try out any card they want it’s been a popular choice as well. From now on, it’ll have some serious competition at the top tables thanks to the new Six Samurai Decks, fresh off their massive boost in power from Storm of Ragnarok’s Legendary Six Samurai. What will happen when these 2 Decks face off?
Tonight’s Monday Night Matchup pits the winning Deck from YCS Atlanta against the winning Deck from YCS Milan: Gravekeeper’s VS Plant Synchro! Both of these tremendous tournaments were held during the same weekend, but their Top Decks were very different. The pace of Plant Synchro clashes with the crippling control of Gravekeeper’s, making for a unique matchup that’s frequently favorable for the Duelist wielding the tomb-keepers.
In tonight’s matchup, we take a look at two Decks that have claimed Championship wins in the last month or so: X-Sabers and Plant Synchro. A series of fortunate events helped Plant Synchro climb over its brother Quickdraw Dandywarrior to claim a win in YCS Philadelphia, while X-Sabers notched another win in Mexico this past weekend. What happens when they go head to head? Read on to find out!
