CDP: Nemleria Branded Despia, ft. Nemleria Repette

Try a new way to empty your Extra Deck!


Strategic Summary:

Welcome back to another profile featuring the Nemleria theme, as they’ve received yet another new support card since the last time I’ve featured the archetype! If you missed my last time covering this archetype, be sure to check it out here.

This time around, the Nemleria theme takes front and center stage, but with the help of a brand new Trap Card that can really add some oopmf to a turn one play. Nemleria Repette (YGOrg Translation) is the newest option in the arsenal of this sweet dreams theme, allowing you to banish up to 3 cards from your Extra Deck face-down and activate a corresponding effect. Banishing 1 lets you recover a Nemleria card, banishing 2 halves all damage you would take during the turn, and banishing 3 requires you to also send a Level 10 Beast to the GY, as it negates the effects of all face-up monsters the opponent controls. That’s right, this Trap is a one-sided Skill Drain for the turn, and it’s even still searchable via Nemleria Dream Devourer – Reveil. Either way, this Trap all but assures your Extra Deck will be empty to unlock the sleeping powers of Dreaming Nemleria during the subsequent turn!

Enough about the Nemleria for a moment, let’s take a few minutes to talk up the Branded/Despia side of this deck. You see, Guiding Quem, the Virtuous may be a great asset to any Branded variant, but it is especially useful when you have ways to have a card leave the Extra Deck beyond just Fusion Summoning, as with so many of the Nemleria support cards. Besides Quem and her great effects, Blazing Cartesia, the Virtuous makes an appearance as she is able to Fusion Summon during either player’s turn. So even if you lock yourself from summoning from the Extra Deck to use your Nemleria effects, Cartesia can just unlock those Fusion monsters during the next turn! And if Cartesia isn’t enough, you of course have the effect of Branded in Red to serve as a stopgap. Now you might be thinking, is this really enough ways to empty the Extra Deck for the Nemleria? I say yes, especially because you have options such as Granguignol the Dusk Dragon, Nadir Servant, and Dogmatika Punishment that each can empty our Extra Deck, getting you one more card closer to the awakening of Dreaming Nemleria. Sink into dreams of lore, with Nemleria Despia!
