Think of the Fish deck as Frog Monarch’s faster, more explosive cousin. Both decks play the Frog engine and control spells to abuse them, but that’s where the similarities end. Typically, the goal of the Fish deck is simple: double tribute for Coelecanth, use its effect to summon out a bunch of Fish tuners and non-tuners, and make big synchros to win the game.
Two of the most common end boards leave the Fish player with a Colossal +1 or 2 Armory Arm, or Goyo Guardian, Black Rose Dragon, and Coelecanth (2800+2400+2800=8000 Damage). While Armory Arm was later errata’d, in Edison it inflicts damage based on attack while on field, not in the graveyard. That means Armory Arm+Colossal allows you to equip Armory to an opponents monster to put it to over 2800 ATK, ram your Colossal Fighter, and revive the same Colossal from the grave, inflicting 2800 damage in the process.
The rest of the deck tries to support this plan, whether speeding through the deck and fixing hands, stalling and setting up tribute fodder, or clearing backrow so your Coelecanth play is successful.
