The Kaiju variant has really picked up this week – 14 players were playing Kaiju in the Main Deck, while another 4 players had Kaiju in their Side Deck.

Other than Kaiju, Book of Eclipse, Forbidden Chalice, Torrential Tribute and Forbidden Apocrypha are some of the common Side Deck choices against Zoodiac.





Eidolon Beast has a small showing this week, prompting some players to run Imperial Iron Wall in their Side Deck.

Imperial Iron Wall hinders Eidolon Summoning Magic by causing the Eidolon Beast player to be unable to banish monsters from their field and/or either player’s Graveyard. While Imperial Iron Wall is face-up on the field, the effect of Merkabah the Eidolon Beast cannot be activated.

Imperial Iron Wall also doubles up against Infernoid.
