CDP: Amazement Attractions of the Administrator Arlekino, ft. Amazement Dominator Arlekino

The Attractions are back in town!


Strategic Summary:

Welcome back to the first CDP of the new year, this time celebrating with the Amazement archetype and their new CYAC Support card! The Amazement archetype has a symbiotic relationship with the Attraction archetype, a set of Normal Traps that equip to either your Amazement monster or an opponent’s monster. Depending on who each is equipped to, the effect of that Trap card changes. For example, Amaze Attraction Horror House can negate a targeted monster’s effects when equipped to your monster or flip the equipped monster facedown if equipped to an opponent’s. Similarly, Amaze Attraction Cyclo-Coaster can remove a Spell/Trap from the opponent’s board or tutor an Amazement monster. Recently, the theme also received Amaze Attraction Thrill Train, which can recover an Attraction Trap back from the GY or banish the opponent’s equipped monster.

Now all of these fun Attraction effects are only as good as the cards that support them, so let’s meet the Amazements. Amazement Administrator Arlekino is the primary monster and the reason to play this archetype. It can easily Special Summon itself from the hand when a Trap Card is activated, plus whenever your opponent Summons, it can equip an Attraction Trap from your Deck directly to that monster. Combine this with the new Amazement Dominator Arlekino (YGOrg Translation), which can Special Summon itself from the hand while you control an Amazement monster as well as shuffle itself into the deck to summon Administrator Arlekino from the deck, and you just doubled your access to your most powerful monster. The other piece of Dominator Arlekino is that it tutors Amazement Family Faces when Special Summoned from the hand via its first effect, which lets you take control of an opponent’s monster equipped with an Attraction Trap Card. Between these bosses, the consistency in tutoring Attraction cards offered by Amazement Assistant Delia and Amazement Attendant Comica, the consistency in tutoring Amazement cards with Cyclo-Coaster and Amazing Time Ticket, and lastly all the disruption from the Attraction traps, you have a gimmicky little archetype ready for fun. Take the opponent on the rides of their life with the Amazement Attractions!
