Hyperspatial Control is a removal control deck type.

Details

There are 5 main types of hyperspatial control;

These decks use the Darkness civilization to destroy or discard your opponent, while also milling and disrupting him by using cards such as Volg Thunder or Diabolos Zeta, Temporal Ruler.

The Light Civilization is used for defensive purposes with DNA Spark and Falconer, Lightfang Ninja or to retrieve cards with Sol Habaki, Apocalyptic Sage or Chief De Baula, Machine King of Mystic Light.

Water focuses on drawing cards through Energy Stream, but also giving support to the Light and Darkness civilization with Aquan Jr.'s Delivery and Cebu Aquman Jr..

Nature is sometimes used for mana acceleration through Jasmine, Mist Faerie or Faerie Life, and extra removal with Leaf Storm Trap. It can also include another option for drawing cards, Hustle Castle.
