13 Zoodiac
8 Draco Zoodiac
7 Kaiju Zoodiac
1 Plant Zoodiac
2 Zoodiac Infernoid
1 Zoodiac Paleozoic

The pure Zoodiac builds are the most popular this weekend. The big surprise is the number of True Draco variants – while we expected them to be popular, they weren’t represented much at the top tables earlier in the event. However, eight of those Duelists managed to secure a place in the Top 32. Kaiju builds have nearly the same amount of representatives. Since the newest iteration of Zoodiac Decks gains so much advantage with Fusion Substitute combos, Interrupted Kaiju Slumber is more valuable than ever. Finally, one Zoodiac Deck using a Plant engine with Predaplant Darlingtonia Cobra is in the mix as well.

While the other Decks feature Zoodiacs, they aren’t the main focus. We’ve got 2 Infernoid Decks, and they’re actually facing each other this round. Finally, one Paleozoic Deck has made the cut. Even in the face of so many Kaiju Decks, Toadally Awesome is an extremely powerful card, and the Paleozoic cards offer a lot of valuable disruption.
