Deck Profile: Brian Ozga’s Supervise Plant Deck

November 14th, 2009

Brian Ozga is here today running an explosive new Plant Deck that uses “Power Tool Dragon” to search his Deck for “Mark of the Rose” and “Supervise.” Ozga can swarm the field easily thanks to “Gigaplant” and even win the game in a single turn! Check out his decklist:

“Gigaplant” is a Gemini monster that, after its Gemini effect is turned on, can Special Summon 1 Insect or Plant (of any Level!) per turn from your hand or Graveyard. “Supervise” is a new Equip Spell Card from the Warriors’ Strike Structure Deck that turns on a Gemini monster’s effect without having to Summon it a second time.

If Ozga has a single “Lonefire Blossom” in his Graveyard to return to the field with “Gigaplant,” he’s able to fetch any Plant in his Deck:
1. “Supervise” turns on the Gemini effect of “Gigaplant.”
2. “Gigaplant” Special Summons “Lonefire Blossom” from the Graveyard.
3. Tribute “Lonefire Blossom” to Special Summon any Plant from the Deck.

This means that a “Gigaplant” + “Lonefire Blossom” pair gives Ozga access to Special Summon any Plant in his hand, Deck, or Graveyard.

By Summoning “Copy Plant” from his Deck with “Lonefire Blossom,” he can Synchro Summon “Power Tool Dragon” from his Extra Deck by Tuning it with “Gigaplant.” If “Gigaplant” is equipped with “Supervise,” and “Supervise” is sent to the Graveyard when Ozga performs the Synchro Summon, Ozga can then Special Summon his “Gigaplant” back from the Graveyard with “Supervise.”

Best of all, with “Power Tool Dragon” on the field, he can take another Equip Spell Card from his Deck, and if that card is another “Supervise,” he can repeat the process by equipping “Gigaplant” and Special Summoning “Copy Plant” from his Graveyard again. Instead of “Power Tool Dragon,” he can also choose to Synchro Summon “Black Rose Dragon.” Then he can remove a Plant monster from his Graveyard to switch one of his opponent’s Defense Position monsters to attack mode, and lowers its ATK to 0.

Instead of Special Summoning “Power Tool Dragon” or “Black Rose Dragon” to the field, Ozga can also Synchro Summon a Level 8 Synchro Monster by Special Summoning “Nettles” and Tuning it with “Gigaplant.” There are plenty of Level 8 Synchro monsters in Ozga’s Deck for him to choose from, including “Stardust Dragon” and “Colossal Fighter,” depending on the situation.

Although he’s not running it in his Extra Deck, the new “Black Brutdrago” from Stardust Overdrive would also be a fantastic option. Not only would he be able to discard his extra copy of “Gigaplant” to destroy an opponent’s Spell or Trap Card, but when “Black Brutdrago” is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard, Ozga would be able to Special Summon “Gigaplant” from his Graveyard with its Gemini effect! Ozga wouldn’t even need to fear destructive card effects as long as “Black Brutdrago” is on his field. If Brutdrago would be destroyed by a card like “Mirror Force” or “Torrential Tribute,” Ozga would be able to Special Summon “Gigaplant” back from the Graveyard, use its effect to return Nettles to play, and Synchro Summon for “Black Brutdrago” once again.

Ozga’s Deck is capable of performing some amazing Life Point swings and can easily dish out 8000 damage in a single turn. With “Mark of Rose,” Ozga can steal his opponent’s only monster and perform a direct attack with it. Combined with the awesome power of “Gigaplant” and “Supervise” to Summon a flurry of monsters, this is usually game-ending.

Ozga can also search his Deck for “Supervise” and “Mark of the Rose” with “Hidden Armory” whenever he needs it, adding another level of consistency to his Deck. “Mark of the Rose” has a bunch of uses in Ozga’s Deck. Since “Mark of the Rose” requires Ozga to remove a Plant-Type monster from his Graveyard, he’ll need to fill his Graveyard with Plant monsters to use all 3 copies. That’s not a problem, since “Lonefire Blossom” quickly fills the Graveyard with Plants.

Ozga can use his “Mark of the Rose” to steal his opponent’s monsters and use them for a Synchro Summon involving his “Blackwing – Gale the Whirlwind,” “Debris Dragon,” “Nettles,” or “Copy Plant.” He can also Tribute the monster he steals for “Gigaplant,” or remove it from play with “Cyber Valley” to draw 2 cards.

Few players here today are running a Supervise Plant Deck like Ozga’s, but you might want to think about the explosive combos it’s capable of creating. This Deck might take off in the near future.
