Creative Deck Profile: Aesir of Nordic Thunder

Rule over the Earth and Heavens with the Aesir and the Thunder Dragons!

Replays:

Strategic Summary:

The Nordic archetype, debuting during 5Ds as the archetype of choice of the three duelists in Team Ragnarok in the WRGP has an interesting past. There have been various attempts to release new support over the theme throughout the years, capped by the TCG latest attempt with Gullveig of the Nordic Ascendant and Alviss of the Nordic Alfar. This theme revolves around assembling materials for the Synchro Summon of the Level 10 Aesir monsters, often accelerated by Gullveig’s effect, which banishes up to 3 cards from your field or hand to summon that many Nordic monsters from the deck. The newest combo in their arsenal occurs when you banish Alviss, because Alviss can then use 1 Nordic on the field (presumably the one you summoned with Gullveig) and 2 from the deck to faux-Synchro Summon an Aesir from the Extra! Either way, this gets an Aesir boss into play. As an alternative strategy, you can choose to banish Thunder Dragon monsters instead for Gullveig’s effect, triggering their secondary effects! Whether it is searching with Dragondark, mulligan-ing with Dragonhawk, or tutoring a new copy of Dragonmatrix, advantage can be maintained despite going for a costly Synchro Summon. After all, combining these two archetypes gives you a bit more than just Thor as your only God of Thunder!

As of now, I only have 2 outstanding requests that I am looking into: Witchcrafter, & The Agent. Please let me know what theme(s) you want to see next!!

Hello everybody! I serve as Number VIII of the Organization; however, my main role is writing Deck Strategy articles and generating non-news content for the site! Gotta love those underused archetypes...
