Neptabyss, the Atlantean Prince

Atlantean

The latest booster set, Crossover Souls, brought along Neptabyss the Atlantean Prince, who enabled a series of crazy combos with Deep Sea Diva.

With Atlantean on the rise and becoming a mainstay in the competitive scene, here’s a look at the various combos that brought this deck to Tier 1 status.

 

Combo 1: Deep Sea Diva + WATER Monster

 

Atlantean101

  1. Normal summon Deep Sea Diva, and special summon Neptabyss the Atlantean Prince through its effect.
  2. Activate Neptabyss the Atlantean Prince‘s effect, and send Atlantean Dragoons to the graveyard as its cost.
  3. Add Atlantean Marksman from deck to hand through the effect of Neptabyss the Atlantean Prince.
  4. Add Mermail Abyssmegalo from deck to hand through the effect of Atlantean Dragoons.

  2. Attack with everything else.
  3. Synchro Atlantean Dragoons + Deep Sea Diva to special summon Blackwing – Nothung the Starlight, and inflict 800 damage to your opponent.
  4. (2400+800)×2 + 1400 + 1800 + 200 + 800 = 10600.

Atlantean104

Alternatively, if you had run out of Atlantean Dragoons in the deck to be special summoned by Atlantean Marksman, continue from the above Step 7:

  1. Special summon Atlantean Dragoons from the graveyard through the effect of Neptabyss the Atlantean Prince.
  2. Synchro Atlantean Dragoons + Deep Sea Diva to special summon Blackwing – Nothung the Starlight, and inflict 800 damage to your opponent.
  3. Attack with everything.
  4. 800 + 2400 + (2400+800)×2 = 9600.

Even if you do not play Abyss-scale of the Mizuchi, it is still 800 + 2400 + 2400×2 = 8000 damage.

  4. 800 + 2400 + (2400+800)×2 + 2800 = 12400.

 

Combo 3: Deep Sea Diva

 

Atlantean301

  1. Normal summon Deep Sea Diva, and special summon Neptabyss the Atlantean Prince through its effect.
  2. Activate Neptabyss the Atlantean Prince‘s effect, and send Atlantean Dragoons to the graveyard as its cost.
  3. Add Atlantean Dragoons from deck to hand through the effect of Neptabyss the Atlantean Prince.

  3. Special summon Moulinglacia the Elemental Lord.
    (Exactly 5 WATER monsters in the Graveyard – 2 Atlantean Dragoons, 1 Deep Sea Diva, 1 Neptabyss the Atlantean Prince, 1 Child Dragon.)

In Step 3, you could add a different Atlantean monster to hand to change the Level of the Synchro monster that you could special summon later on.
Child Dragon + Atlantean Heavy Infantry = Level 5 Synchro monster
Child Dragon + Atlantean Marksman = Level 6 Synchro monster
Child Dragon + Atlantean Dragoons = Level 7 Synchro monster

This is a one-card combo using just Deep Sea Diva to special summon a Moulinglacia the Elemental Lord and a Synchro monster, while still discarding 2 cards from the opponent’s hand. This is a possible opening play for the player starting first.

 

Combo 4: Deep Sea Diva + Atlantean Heavy Infantry + Level 4 Non-WATER Monster

 

Atlantean401

  1. Normal summon Atlantean Heavy Infantry.
  2. Normal summon Deep Sea Diva, and special summon Neptabyss the Atlantean Prince through its effect.
  3. Activate Neptabyss the Atlantean Prince‘s effect, and send Atlantean Dragoons to the graveyard as its cost.

  2. Synchro Child Dragon + Atlantean Heavy Infantry + a non-WATER monster from hand to special summon Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier.
  3. Special summon Moulinglacia the Elemental Lord.
    (Exactly 5 WATER monsters in the Graveyard – 1 Atlantean Dragoons, 1 Deep Sea Diva, 1 Neptabyss the Atlantean Prince, 1 Atlantean Heavy Infantry, 1 Child Dragon.)

This is a three-card combo to special summon a Moulinglacia the Elemental Lord and a Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier, while still discarding/banishing a total of 3 cards from the opponent’s hand. This is another possible opening play, but the steep requirements makes it rather unlikely.

 

Combo 5: Deep Sea Diva

 

Atlantean501

  1. Normal summon Deep Sea Diva, and special summon Neptabyss the Atlantean Prince through its effect.
  2. Activate Neptabyss the Atlantean Prince‘s effect, and send Atlantean Dragoons to the graveyard as its cost.
  3. Add Atlantean Heavy Infantry from deck to hand through the effect of Neptabyss the Atlantean Prince.
  4. Add Moulinglacia the Elemental Lord from deck to hand through the effect of Atlantean Dragoons.

  2. Synchro Child Dragon + Atlantean Heavy Infantry to special summon Accel Synchron.
  3. Special summon Moulinglacia the Elemental Lord.
    (Exactly 5 WATER monsters in the Graveyard – 1 Atlantean Dragoons, 1 Deep Sea Diva, 1 Neptabyss the Atlantean Prince, 1 Atlantean Heavy Infantry, 1 Child Dragon.)

Atlantean503

  1. Activate the effect of Accel Synchron, and send Steam Synchron from the deck to the graveyard as its cost, increasing its Level to 8.
  2. Xyz Accel Synchron + Moulinglacia the Elemental Lord to special summon a Rank 8 Xyz monster.

This is a one-card combo using just Deep Sea Diva to special summon a Rank 8 Xyz monster, while still discarding 2 cards from the opponent’s hand. This is the best possible opening play for the player starting first, especially with a Rank 8 Xyz monster such as Divine Dragon Knight Felgrand.

 

Conclusion

 

The one-card combo opening plays, and two-card combo OTKs have propelled Atlantean to Tier 1 in the competitive scene. No matter if you are playing with or against Atlantean, 3 copies of Effect Veiler is critical to shut down Deep Sea Diva and stop any Atlantean combos from going off.
