Orcust

Fuyu (ふゆ) went 7-2 and finished 2nd in “2nd Mini Namakobu CS” which had 52 participants.

He ran 2 Forbidden Droplet and 2 Cosmic Cyclone in the Main Deck against Numeron Eldlich.

Masked HERO Dark Law is a solid tech choice for the current metagame, being able to banish Orcust Monsters, Sky Striker Spells and Eldlich Traps. Activating Numeron Network ① effect requires sending Numeron Calling from the deck to graveyard as the cost, so if Masked HERO Dark Law is on the field, then Numeron Network ① effect cannot be activated. Similarly, Eldlich the Golden Lord ① effect also requires sending itself and 1 Spell/Trap from your hand to the graveyard as the cost, so Eldlich the Golden Lord ① effect could not be used to clear Masked HERO Dark Law.

He also ran 2 Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit in the Side Deck, which could be used against Numeron Network.

 

Sky Striker

Numamachi (ぬまっち) went 6-2 and finished 3 – 4th in “2nd Mini Namakobu CS” which had 52 participants.

He ran 3 Forbidden Droplet in the Main Deck as an answer for Number S0: Utopic ZEXAL or Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon. It also provide an avenue to send Metalfoes Fusion to the graveyard if it was drawn.

He also ran 3 Dimensional Barrier in the Side Deck. When Numeron Network ① effect or Numeron Calling is activated, Dimensional Barrier can be chained to it by declaring Xyz Monsters to stop the Numeron Xyz Monsters from being Special Summoned. When going second, Dimensional Barrier can also be used against Number S0: Utopic ZEXAL to negate its effect.

 

Conclusion

Collection Pack 2020 debuts Numeron and the 1-card Numeron Network into Number S0: Utopic ZEXAL play is an easy setup to lock the opponent from activating their cards and effects.

Number S0: Utopic ZEXAL ④ effect is a Quick Effect, so Quick-Play Spells such as Forbidden Droplet or Forbidden Chalice are good answers against Number S0: Utopic ZEXAL as they could be chained in response to negate the ④ effect.

Using Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit on Numeron Network to prevent Number S0: Utopic ZEXAL from being Xyz Summoned is also a possible countermeasure.

    I saw there was one Dragma Invoked, but really? No Infernoble Knights at all?
