Mermail Madness!

February 4th, 2013

With strong showings at YCS Seattle and YCS Barcelona, the new Mermail strategy was quickly recognized as one of the deadliest Decks in Dueling today.  Cards like Mermail Abyssmegalo and Atlantean Marksman combine to create unpredictable combos, demolishing your opponent’s field with destruction effects and putting big monsters on the warpath.  In order to play them properly, or battle back against them, you need to know what the strategy can do.  While we’ve talked about some of the simple combos before, recent YCS action showed off a handful of powerful moves that are a little more complicated.  Here are some powerful plays that Mermail Decks can unleash out of nowhere!

A strong Deck consists of not only a powerful set of monsters, but a solid set of Spell and Trap Cards to back them up. Certain Spells and Traps are powerful and versatile enough to fit into a lot of Decks, which means that you need to play around your opponent’s copies while also making the most of your own.  Playing against the same Spells and Traps that you use yourself can get a little tiring,  so why not give your opponents a good reason to not play the same cards you’re using by turning the tables on them with Retort!
