CDP: Nouvelles-Patissciel w/Horn of Heaven, Duality, and a Confectionary Contest

What’s in your basket today, chef?


Strategic Summary:

Today’s Creative Deck Profile features the return of the Nouvelles archetype to my channel, and this time, we’re turning up the heat! The Nouvelles archetype consists of various Warrior and Beast-Warrior Ritual Monsters that aim to ladder all the way up in Level until they reach the ultimate Level 6 Ritual Monster: Hungry Burger. Each carries an effect to Tribute another Attack Position monster, such as Foie Glasya de Nouvelles, who can tribute a Nouvelles you control and an Attack Position monster to Special Summon a Level 5 or 6 Nouvelles Ritual from your hand/deck. To access these Ritual Monsters, Recipe Ritual Spells exist, such as Recette de Poisson (Fish Recipe), or you can turn to their Continuous Trap, Recette de Personnel (Staff Recipe) to Ritual Summon during the opponent’s turn. Either way, their Field Spell, Nouvelles Restaurant “At Table” tutors the Recipe you need. But all of that is old ‘Nouvelles’, let’s talk about the new cards in AGOV!

First up is Concours de Cuisine (Confectionary Contest) (YGOrg Translation), which Special Summons a Nouvelles Pendulum Monster and a Patissciel Pendulum Monster from hand/deck/Extra Deck, one to each field. While there is only one of each right now, the Pendulum Monster is one of the best cards they could have printed for the deck, Poissoniere de Nouvelles (YGOrg Translation). First, whenever she is Tributed, she places herself into the Pendulum Zone, letting you not lose any resources when Ritual Summoning, or Leveling up to the next Nouvelles. Secondly, when Summoned, she tutors a Level 1 Ritual or a Recipe card, OR, if you are in a pinch, you can banish Recipe cards from your GY to faux-Ritual Summon a Nouvelles from your hand. Throw in the fact that she can summon herself from the Pendulum Zone by targeting a monster on the field (hello Nouvelles Tribute effects), and you have yourself the perfect support card. She is even a Level 1 Fairy monster, meaning she can be summoned directly from the deck when you tribute a Diviner of the Herald. Speaking of Diviner, take a moment to appreciate how amazing it is in Ritual Decks for sending Herald of the Arc Light to the GY. Thank you, Diviner.

The last core component of this new strategy features Horn of Heaven and the Counter Fairy that supports it, Harvest Angel of Doom. Horn of Heaven can Tribute a monster you control to negate an opponent’s summon, and if you Tribute Poissoniere, that really means it carries no cost. On the other hand, Black Horn of Heaven can negate an opponent’s attempt to Special Summon. Harvest gets to tutor both, the first when summoned, and then the second by destroying itself in your Pendulum Zone. You see, this isn’t actually all that difficult to pull off, because just like Poissoniere, when it is Tributed, it goes back to your Pendulum Zone. Speaking of Tributing, there is one more key tech card that can truly elevate the Nouvelles archetype: Duality. This Quick-Play Spell tributes a LIGHT or DARK monster to summon one with the other Attribute but the same Type and Level, from either your hand or Extra Deck. So that Harvest Angel of Doom can tutor a Horn of Heaven, then be Tributed with Duality to Summon Herald of the Arc Light, then return to the Pendulum Zone to tutor Black Horn of Heaven. Or, tribute a Diviner of the Herald to summon Allvain the Essence of Vanity, and still get a Poissoniere. Or, you even tribute Hungry Burger or Baelgrill de Nouvelles to summon out Dual Avatar Firsts – Armored Ah-Gyo to destroy an opponent’s monster in a pinch. Check out today’s special tech options when the Nouvelles debuts its new menu post-Age of Overlord!
