Introduction to Gladiator Beasts

Overview

The general strategy of the deck is to use your Gladiator Beast monsters in battle. This will allow you to return that Gladiator Beast to the deck to special summon another with a different name. This mechanic is commonly referred to as “tagging out” and this is how it will be named on this page and the guide. These tagging effects mean the deck can deal with almost any board state and generate card advantage every turn. The strength of the deck is its versatility. The core of the deck is between seven and eight monsters. This gives the deck between twelve and thirteen tech spots which you can customize to have favourable matchups against a specific group of decks. The deck has seen a resurgence in playability due to a favourable Fur Hire matchup, it is one of the few decks that can break a Fur Hire board going second and can stop the deck making any plays outside of Hey, Trunade!. It can also beat Amazoness through deckout or by drawing your outs to Amazoness Onslaught.

Extra Info

  • While Amazoness is a difficult matchup which often requires you to draw removal for Amazoness Onslaught, an alternative win condition is to deck them out since they are weak to Wall of Disruption if you can Floodgate Trap Hole or destroy their Amazoness Princesses.

  • Sealed Tombs improves your Spellbook matchup. One the other hand, Endless Trap Hell improves your Amazoness matchup.

  • You have a way to never deck out with Gladiator Beasts. You can tag two monsters into the deck to summon Essedarii. This includes Essedarii himself. This means you can summon Essedarii every turn and return one Gladiator to the deck every turn. Always be aware of the option to win through deck out in the late game.

  • Gladiator Beast Nerokius stops any therefore gets through Amazoness Onslaught, Sea Stealth Attack and Des Counterblow. It does not stop continuous effects such as Mirror Wall and Toon Kingdom.

  • You can use Super Rush Headlong on a tagged in Dimacari to destroy two monsters of the same attribute in one turn. This can be devastating against Hazy Flame and Sea Stealth Attack Decks.

  • Bestiari and Murmillo’s tag in effects are mandatory so only summon them if you can destroy a card your opponent controls. Take note of what Gladiators have been destroyed. If you have lost your Dimacari you can only to tag Laquari into Bestiari or Murmillo. Take care to not destroy your own cards.

  • Against decks which use chainable cards which summon monsters from the grave, hand or deck (e.g. Red Eyes Spirit and Powerful Rebirth) always tag in Bestiari to force the activation of that card and then Murmillo second to destroy the summoned monster.
