Creative Deck Profile: Springans Final Battle at Golgonda with the Branded Albaz, ft. DABL Support

I’ll admit this might not be the Final Battle, but it was a snappy card name.


Strategic Summary:

Welcome back to another profile, this time centered on providing an updated look at the Springans archetype when combined with Branded and Albaz Support. Since I’ve covered this strategy before, I highly recommend checking that out as well. Now that the formalities are out of the way, let’s talk about how the new cards push this cool hybrid strategy even further. First, let’s talk about the coolest card and the namesake for this video, Final Battle at Golgonda (YGOrg Translation). This Spell card is AMAZING. In all caps. Whenever any card would be destroyed by battle or card effect, it protects them by sending any Fusion Monster that lists Fallen of Albaz instead. If you have ever read these Fusion cards, this is amazing, as most of them have an effect to tutor or float into another card during the End Phase of a turn they were sent to the GY. So in other words, every branded deck just turned potential destruction into advantage. But where this card should get you even more hyped up is the last effect, which triggers during the End Phase if have Fallen of Albaz on your field or in your GY. This effect summons any Springans monster from your hand or Deck. In other words, this card will give you a continuous flow of monsters, straight from the deck, with no end in sight.

While that continuous flow of monsters may only be useful in the context of what you’re summoning, remember back to my last video, where I demonstrated how this theme already had plenty of ways to continuously recover resources from the GY. If anything, this deck just got even better at that, as Red Cartesia, the Virtuous (YGOrg Translation) has joined the fray as another Virtuous Spellcaster Tuner that returns itself from the GY to the hand during the End Phase of a turn a Fusion Monster was sent to your GY. Add this to Incredible Ecclesia, the Virtuous and Branded in High Spirits, and you add virtually endless streams of resources to play with, as long as you keep getting Fusions to the GY. Speaking of Fusions, Red Cartesia also allows you to Fusion Summon, but you can also rely on Branded Fusion for support in that arena. Either way, this deck just got a lot scarier, so watch the video and see for yourself – it really has become an archetype with an endless stream of monsters, just like the endless sands of time… I’ll take more desert any day!
