Shoegazer One-Shot
DM-Wiki: Article

Shoegazer One-Shot is a combo deck type.


It aims to win in a single turn using the ability of Shoegazer, Bright Deity.

It has been reigning in the Episode 3 metagame with its DFN versions participating in competitive Japanese tournaments and placing high.

The core of the deck type is the Come Into Play and Attack Trigger abilities of Shoegazer, Bright Deity and its high synergy with Kiryu Jilves, Gaia's Roar and Prin, Reversal Princess to attack on the turn that it enters the battle zone with the former's effect as well as untapping and continue attacking every time with the latter's effect.

The overall combo includes boosting one's mana and summoning Shoegazer, with his effect putting a Kiryu Jives in the Battle Zone (Possibly from hand)  and making the recently summoned Shoegazer a speed attacker and then attacking with it. While doing so triggering his attack trigger which is to be used to put Prin in the play and subsequently untapping Shoegazer, which can make a second attack because of being Untapped. Continuing in this way until one 'runs out' of Prin in his mana zone or hand.

This deck type is highly successful beatdown because of the combo itself being very simple to set up and having very less weaknesses as well as Shoegazer itself being a powerful creature with double breaker. It has no weaknesses aside from Shield Triggers and/or Shinobis, in which the chances of which can be lessened with the use of Inka, Karma's Curse Crest.

Due to the May 24th Banlist, Kiryu Jilves, Gaia's Roar was restricted to 1 copy per deck which created an extreme imbalance in this deck type's core strategy. Though new methods are being used with Falcon Bomber and Macallan Fine, Explosive Roar in his stead.

Either ways, the deck type has almost disappeared from the competitive scene from late-middle Dragon Saga. Decks are being built on Boaroaxe, Evil Tomahawk and Imen=Bugo, Dragon Edge instead, which are much better than this deck type in multiple regards.
