Zoodiac is the new deck to beat, and players are now running Maxx “C” and Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit in the Main Deck.
Maxx “C” forces the opponent to stop with the Zoodiac combo, or risk giving too many cards.
Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit stops Elemental Triangle of the Zoodiac. It can also be used on a Zoodiac Xyz monster to deny double Zoodiac Marmorat.
Book of Moon is also another versatile card that is seeing increased play. When going first, Book of Moon can shutdown the opponent’s Zoodiac Xyz Summon. But when going second, Book of Moon can also be used on Zoodiac Drancia to prevent it from disrupting your game plan.
A disappointing week for ABC.
ABC was the average-played to the most-played deck across this week’s tournaments, but most players failed to go far in the competitions.
The drop in Anti-Spell Fragrance being played in the Main Deck gave Metalfoes a breather, but they are still far from competing against Zoodiac.
Zoodiac has overtaken ABC to become the best deck of the current competitive scene.
ABC and Metalfoes are trailing far behind, and are unlikely to catch up as more players are switching over to Zoodiac.
Infernoid is enjoying a little success with the 60-cards Lawnmowing Next Door build.
