Conclusion

The 2-card and 3-card combos setup one or two disruption on board respectively, to slow down the opponent’s game plan on their turn.

If the opponent is unable to clear this board, then Salamangreat Sunlight Wolf ② effect can be activated again on the next turn to take back Salamangreat Roar or Salamangreat Rage, and this would keep the opponent in check while slowly wearing them down.

Even if the opponent is able to clear the board, since these combos always recoup Salamangreat Gazelle back into the hand, while having an assortment of Salamangreat Spinny, Salamangreat Foxy , Salamangreat Jack Jaguar and/or Salamangreat Falco in the graveyard, Salamangreat can easily rebuild the board again with all these Special Summons.

While Salamangreat does not have any flashing opening, they are very cost efficient in setting up some basic disruption, while still having the ability to swarm on the next turn.

The flexiblilty of Salamangreat is reflected in these combos, showing many different opening hands that can still end with a strong setup.

Salamangreat’s consistency is also boosted by Salamangreat Circle, being able to fetch for any of the missing pieces for the combo.

    There’s an error with Combo #8. In step 9 it tells you to detatch Spiny, even though Spiny was not used as one of the materials for Stallion.

    • Akira says:

      If this card is in your GY, and a face-up Spell/Trap is on the field: You can discard 1 “Salamangreat” card; Special Summon this card, then you can destroy 1 face-up Spell/Trap on the field.

      The part to destroy 1 face-up Spell/Trap on the field is optional.
