CDP: Gate Guardian Naturia, ft. MAZE Support
This maze is natural right?
Welcome to today’s CDP, featuring the brand new TCG-World Premiere Gate Guardian support cards! For those of you who haven’t checked out the new support yet, this theme is all about banishing the original Kazejin, Suijin, and Sanga of the Thunder in different combinations to make new Gate Guardian Fusion monsters. For example, Gate Guardian of Thunder and Wind, made with Kazejin and Sanga, boasts 2500 ATK and can tutor any Spell/Trap that names all three of those monsters in its text. Additionally, whenever any of these Fusion monsters leave the field by an opponent’s card, they can Special Summon 1 of your banished one of those monsters. What makes this upgraded take on Gate Guardian stuff so unique is that they’re all about placing the pieces on the field as Continuous Spell cards, letting you banish them from your backrow to Contact Fusion rather than having to summon them first. Take for example Labyrinth Heavy Tank, or their new Field Spell, Labyrinth Wall Shadow. However you slice it, getting your Gate Guardian pieces becomes your top priority, so that’s why I’m running a few extra helpers in that domain!
First up on the helpers is Elemental HERO Prisma, an older E-HERO that can reveal a Fusion Monster to send 1 of its listed material from the Deck to the GY, then assume its name. This lets you mill a Kazejin for example, then still leave one in your GY for the future summoning of the theme’s ultimate boss monster, Gate Guardians Combined, which can negate any card or effect that targets a card up to three times a turn! Assisting Prisma is the old support Spell card, A Hero Lives, giving you a way to cut your LP in half, summon a Prisma, and setup for an easy OTK with the help of Riryoku Guardian. Lastly, Fusion Deployment also offers a great way to speed those Gate Guardian monsters right out of your deck, giving you more agency to Fusion Summon.
Now I’ve talked a lot about the Gate Guardian stuff, what about the Naturia engine!? The Naturia engine is all about abusing all of the effects of Naturia Camellia to your very best extent. First, when summoned, Camellia can send a Naturia Sacred Tree to the GY, which then triggers its effect to tutor any Naturia card, such as Naturia Blessing. Secondly, whenever your opponent summons a monster, you get to Special Summon a Naturia monster from your GY. And lastly, if you would Tribute a monster to activate a Naturia effect, you can mill 2 cards instead. What makes these last two effects so impactful is Naturia Mole Cricket, a Level 1 Insect that can Tribute itself to Special Summon 1 or 2 Naturia monsters from the deck. Combine that with Camellia or your copies of Naturia Sunflower and Naturia Vein, and you have yourself even more disruption options. And don’t forget Camellia is a Tuner, so you also have access to Naturia Beast and Naturia Barkion for added negation. Enter the Maze of Memories with the Gate Guardians, with the help of some Naturia friends!

Great decklist, it’s a shame a hero lives is limited to 1 in the Tcg
It isn’t actually limited anymore in the TCG, so you can run 3 copies of it!
