Monsters hovering above their cards

Abyss Actor deck

Melodious deck

The Melodious deck is a great option if you’re looking to counter some decks that rely heavily on special summons. More than that, the boss fusion monster card is incredibly difficult to remove from the battlefield.

The Gaia deck features many hard-hitting monsters that are sure to leave a mark on the opposition. More than that, the conditions in which they need to be summoned tend to be easier to achieve, meaning you’re going to have an attack-heavy force in no time.
