YRS43 - Top 3 - Diva Hero
Written by: fluffaldog
Diva Hero is a deck I have been playing for a while now. I think it has one of the highest ceilings in Edison. It has access to some of the best cards in the format: "Future Fusion", "Elemental Hero Stratos", and "Dark Armed Dragon". The deck is centered around summoning "Elemental Hero Absolute Zero": one of the toughest boss monsters to deal with because of its ability to "Raigeki" the opponent's board when it leaves the field. This usually results in gaining card advantage and can prevents OTKs. Summoning an Absolute Zero for 1 card ("Miracle Fusion") is a powerful play that is good on almost any board state.
In terms of the side deck, Monarchs can be a tough match-up because they do not commit monsters to the board. To counter this, I have 3 "Mask Of Restrict" which shut down the majority of their plays as well as a "D.D. Crow" to remove "Treeborn Frog". I side a "Twister" and a "Dust Tornado" for Decks with "Royal Oppression". The "Doomcaliber Knights", "Neo-Spacian Grand Mole", and second "Snowman Eater" are cards I swap in for some of the low attack monsters like "Destiny Hero Diamond Dude" and "Treeborn Frog" that are sitting ducks in the Gladiator Beast match-up (remember to side out your "Destiny Draw" with "Destiny Hero Diamond Dude"). The 4 monster are versatile enough to be sided in against other match-up as well, and the "Doomcaliber Knights" keep my DARK count sustainable for "Dark Armed Dragon" when removing other DARK monsters.
Diva Hero is a deck that is very fun to play and suits my play style very well. I am very happy with the way it performed as well as the versatility it showed in dealing with a very diverse field of decks.
