CDP: Aromage Rikka Sunavalon Therion Plant Combo, ft. PHNI Aroma Support

This garden just bloomed with bigger potential.


Strategic Summary:

Welcome back for another CDP on new cards, this time focused on inserting the new wave of Aroma support cards into the Rikka-Sunavalon-Aroma-Therion Plant Combo strategy that’s been fairly present as a rogue deck through the past few metas. The strategy is simple – Start with Sunseed Genius Loci and go through a thousand different steps of the combo, and end up with an endboard of Plants. This endboard can include Benghalancer the Resurgent, Teardrop the Rikka Queen, Therion “King” Regulus and more, but I’ll get into the Aroma more later. While I may not have memorized every optimal combo line based on your opening hand as I’d imagine you’d need to do to be an expert pilot of the strategy, I’ve learned enough to see this strategy’s potential and hopefully showcase it for you!

Beyond the general Rikka-Plant gameplan, the goal of this profile was to show off the new Aroma cards, so let me take a second to cover those. Aromalylith Rosalina (YGOrg Translation) is up first, a new Level 1 Plant Tuner that Special Summons an Aroma monster from your deck when summoned. Oftentimes, it will be used to Synchro Summon Aromaseraphy Sweet Marjoram, which in turn will tutor your Humid Winds or Blessed Winds. To grab the other Winds, the deck now has access to Aroma Blend (YGOrg Translation), a new Spell Card that places one of them face-up in your S/T Zone! Once Blend hits the GY, it can be banished to Fusion Summon a Plant Fusion monster, and if your LP are higher than the opponent, your Fusion materials can be Plants from your GY as well. The boss that you’ll be summoning with this is the new Aromalylith Magnolia (YGOrg Translation), a Level 8 Plant Fusion that protects your Plants from being destroyed by card effects, as well as letting you pay 2000 LP to banish cards on the field equal to the number of Winds cards you control. The other new Aroma boss joining the fight today is a LINK-3 monster, Aromalylith Rosemary (YGOrg Translation), which tutors any Aroma card when Link Summoned. Additionally, when you gain LP, this Link can Special Summon up to 3 Aroma monsters from your hand to the zones it points to! Finally, don’t sleep on the last new card, Aroma Healing (YGOrg Translation), which gives you 1000 LP for each Aroma you control. That said, I definitely prefer its GY effect, which lets you Special Summon an Aroma from your GY then gain 500 LP, immediately triggering that Aroma’s effect. I love comboing this with Aromaseraphy Jasmine, as you’ll tutor a new Plant as well! Enjoy frolicking through the Garden, with the Aromas and the new and improved Rikka-etc Plant combo strategy.
