Metagame

DMSD-04/DMSD-05 Stage (March 17, 2018)

New Strong Cards

Overview

With the release of the new starter decks, the Jokers (deck) was reinforced by Gunbutler Great Seven, which made a 3 turn kill possible. Jobato De Runo became useful in combo with Jhot Gun Joragon, but also on its own as a shield trigger and was adopted for Jhot Gun Joragon (deck).

DMRP-05 Stage (March 31, 2018)

New Strong Cards

Overview

Vomirror, Darma further strengthened the De Szark (deck), making it a force in the metagame. While Dogiragon Buster, Blue Leader had a hard time getting around Onikamas, Strange Flow, a Gate of Moonless Night counted as a summon and thus could bypass Onikamas.

While the Jokers deck had found a new finisher in Jhot Gun Joragon, it was still being set back by a timely Kanashimidomino, Destruction Demon Dragon or G.W.D, Rumble Machine, which were being seen more often.

Water Fire Dogiragon Buster became faster with Valchuris, Dragon Armored, which could bring in a new attacker after a second attack. With Platina Walsura S, it also had a good amount of draw and beatdown, while Onikamas, Strange Flow acted as an evolution bait or dealt with other rushes.

Due to its strong removal, G.W.D, Rumble Machine had also found use in Darkness Fire Dogiragon Buster and Dormageddon X, weakening previously strong decks such as Water Darkness Discard.

While the previously crippled Rosia Miradante had been reinforced by Kirazeus Savark, Redzone had also been reinforced by The Bike, Runaway / Bunbun Burst. Ironically, both decks had found good use in Mixel, Strange Stone / Jamming Chaff.

Due to Dragment Innovation getting restricted, Jabbaranga Loop resorted to the progression of Pirates Charger>Necrodragon Bryzenaga>Girigazami, Groaning Iron Arm, as well as abusing more Super Shield Triggers.

Furthermore, previous meta forces had managed to return to the scene, such as:

Out of the twinpact cards, Mixel, Strange Stone / Jamming Chaff and Kuromame Danshaku / Hakumai Danshaku proved as being highly flexible and adaptable in almost any deck. Meanwhile, Luginus, Dragon Armored Doctor / God Hand of Hell and Rousseau Montes / Monte Scale Sign reinforced loop decks.

On the April 2018 Grand Prix, while the winners were Water Darkness Discard, Rosia Miradante and Five Color Faerie Miracle, many players had been seen using De Szark decks. It was at this tournament that LWF Dogiragon Buster and Growth Miradante had become popular.

DMRP-06 Stage (June 23, 2018)

New Strong Cards

Overview

With the release of Gogogo Brand, a 2 turn kill was possible for Mono-Fire rushes, thus creating the Gogogo Brand (deck).

Tsukutcho was used in Growth Miradante, while Duriken, Darma was used in De Szark (deck).

Then a new deck centered around Miradante Twelve, Time Pope appeared, using Chengza, Dragon Armored Ship / Fourth of the Six Bizarre ~Earth Breaking Waterfall~ as Revlution Change bait, in the Light Water Nature combination - Chengza Dante.

Neonkus, Palace Missionary / Neo Brain was used in All Delete Dokindam.

While Dogiragon Buster already had strength with its new LWF Dogiragon Buster deck, its synergy with Doremi, Time 1 and Sido, Time 3, as well as their ability to be evolution baits for Platina Walsura S led to the birth of Light Water Fire Dogiragon Buster.

More so, Five Color Dogiragon Buster had been enforced by Mad Demon Excellency / Demon Hand and Oblady Hornet /「Let it Bee!」.

To counter this, both Mixel, Strange Stone / Jamming Chaff and Oriotis, Control Wings were used in Southern Renaissance (deck). In addition to those, some even added Defense Armor, Absolute Fear, in order to have 12 cards that would deal with Dogiragon Buster.

While Onikamas, Strange Flow still saw use in the metagame, more and more Mach Fighter creatures bealt with it on a regular basis.

With the new Hall of Fame update, Victorious Apache Urara, Platina Walsura S, Rainbow Gate and Niyare Get, Zero Trick were restricted, weakening Water Fire Dogiragon Buster, Growth Miradante, Dogiragon Buster 3 turn kill and Jokers (deck). However, Buster decks began resorting to Retisha, Guide of Victory to make up for Apache Urara's restriction, while Jokers decks resorted to Gayoushin and Helcopta for draws.

With the release of DMEX-02, a new version of Mystery Cube appeared as Kabutorial Kuga / Mystery Disaster, which along with Nazomaru, Strongest Insect had been adapted in a new version of Chain Grasper Loop.

Zenmetsu Scrapper had found some use in Dogiragon Buster decks, while Jigs★Garbi, Darma and Pandemonium were used in De Szark (deck).

Although DMBD-05 and DMBD-06 were mostly regarded as useless, Aegis Boost, Matchless Dragon Saint had proven as a strong defense and Revolution Change card in Kaiser "Blade Demon", while Triguard Charger was adapted in Bryzeshoot.

Megaboost Churis / 「Crazy Suicide Tactics!」 had been used in Gogogo Brand (deck), Rensatsu no Bangetsu Hand had been used in Dormageddon X, while Durinri, Darma and the new Water Magic Tools were used in De Szark (deck).

Meanwhile, at 2 block tournaments, Savark decks had been dominating due to the new Judgment Emblem Z, as well as the strong synergy between Savark DG and Savark Calibur, Ghiramessiah. Besides this, decks with Crash Head, Victorious Dragon Armored had also been going strong.

With the release of DMEX-03, Dangerdeon, Super Mechanical Trap / Hell Utopia's Trap Revelation had enforced even more the "Trap" spell subtype, in combo with Hyper Gigatack / Gigatack Hyper Trap, Na Turalgo Danger / Natural Trap and Drap, Escalden / Maxcargo Trap, thus leading to the creation of VV-8 Gigatack Jolly.

Liliang, Mysterious Light found use in the new Light Fire Gogogo Brand.

Wals Awandes was used in Dogiragon Buster decks to deal with an opposing 卍 De Szark 卍 or Dokindam X, The Legendary Forbidden.
