As of DMRP-08, the text of "this [cardtype] is put into your mana zone tapped." was moved to the Mana Number, and isn't treated as effect text. This makes multicolored cards with no other effect text as having no abilities and receive support for cards that affect cards with no abilities.
Details of Each Civilization
With the advent of DMD-17 Beginning Dragon Deck: Crystal Memory Dragon, Mono-Water Liquid People made its appearance.
Trigram, Zero-order Dragon Formula allows an easy to summon creature by Gravity Zero, with IQ Cloypaedia, Dragment Symbol having a lower cost due to Sympathy based on your Liquid People in the battle zone. Crystal Super Paladin can be used to get around creatures with the blocker ability.
Nature also features a few vanilla creatures above the usual 1:1000 cost to power curve, 2-3000; Bearkodash, Bears Style and Stick, Snow Faerie, 3-4000; Ranivu, Pure Style and Rendan, Gentleman Faerie, as well as 4-5000; Ice, Glacier Faerie, Vanilla Giant and Vanyuegujitto, Purekind.
Sandpit Man brings reanimation to 2 of your vanilla creatures.
The light civilization offers 2 different 1 cost creatures with 500 power, Tulk, the Oracle and Rhapsody, Guard of Hope. It also offers 2 creatures at 3 cost with 3500 power; Lazerion, Light Attack Soldier and Effia, White Knight Oracle.
Water + Nature
Both Matsurida Wasshoi and Aqua Teacher complement each other well, and can lead to early aggressive plays. As both are hunter creatures, it can be searched by Command of the Gang Leader.
However, other forms of card draw should still be provided in case these cards aren't drawn early.
It is mainly just Liquid People. Early plays of Zolul, Aqua Combatant and Aqua Teacher lead to card draw. These can be evolved into IQ Cloypaedia, Dragment Symbol, Trigram, Zero-order Dragon Formula or Supernova Mercury Gigablizzard.
It usually uses Pure White Blueprint as a draw engine.
It has a few races it can focus on; Snow Faeries for Diamond Cascade, Wild Veggies for Don Grill, Flavor Chief, Baron Gouyama and Great Cactus or Beast Folk with Matsurida Wasshoi. A dreammate deck with Miss Mei, Forest of Sleeping is also possible.
Some Water or Nature decks add zero cards for additional beatdown.
Wendigo Apache can be used to search for the exact vanilla creature that you need.
It is a vanilla deck particularly using the Origin archetype of Cyber Lord creatures.
As there are a few forms of them, multiple options of which Parlock are possible. Parlock, Sacred Prayer can add multiple vanilla creatures to your hand while also making Parlock creatures unblockable.
If you want a fan deck based on the background story, Nyanjiro, Treasure Cat can be added.
However, it must be a 3 civilization deck, so mana issues can occur when a vanilla focus is still necessary.
Vanilla Cyber Lords and Hedrians can be combined to use Hydrooze, the Mutant Emperor.
As it relies heavily on Aqua Teacher and Matsurida Wasshoi, early removal can be painful, even with Submarine Fortress Lair as a backup.
In additional, they can be weak to removal such as Apocalypse Day and are particularly weak to cost based removal such as Hell's Hot Spring and Reckless Cut Scrapper. In particular, Mega Magma Dragon completely wipes out a usual battle zone of vanilla creatures.
Measures against Power Based Removal and Decrease Power can be taken however, with cards such as Dalmandy, Snow Fortress. Fuuma Gorgonshack and Time Tripper, Shadow of Stagnation can be used to prevent your opponents spells.
- It as commonly used fo the Zero Civilization King Finals regulation event, due to easily splashing the Noumen, Smith or Apache Wendigo into the deck type.
- Most vanilla cards as well as the 2 core cards for this deck type are at a low rarity (mostly Common.) so it can often by a cheap decktype to create on a budget, for a new or returning player.
- However, as some vanilla creatures may not have been reprinted for a while (or an alterative at the same cost), some may be harder to find.
- Many cards for Vanilla decks can be found in the DMD-17 Beginning Dragon Deck: Crystal Memory Dragon deck, or the DMX-16 The Great Royal Strategies: Fantasista 12 booster pack.
- The deck type was featured on Volume 92 of Weekly DM Dash on the Duel Masters Official Homepage.
