Creative Deck Profile: Ogdoadic Reptile Bonanza, ft. 22PP Support

Snakes Reign Supreme, also featuring Aliens and Reptilianne.


Strategic Summary:

Welcome back to another profile, this time featuring the Ogdoadic archetype in all its glory while combined with other Reptile themes. This archetype revolves around getting as many Reptiles to the GY such as with Snake Rain, then looping them back onto your field to provide disruptive elements. Nauya, the Ogdoadic Remnant and Nunu, the Ogdoadic Remnant serve as your core starter pieces, milling a LIGHT or DARK Reptile respectively by discarding itself. Nunu can then summon itself back from the GY while you control no monsters or an Ogdoadic, and Nauya gets to tutor an Ogdoadic Spell/Trap when Special Summoned. For example, grab Ogdoadic Water Lily to provide more milling and more recovery from the GY, or Ogdoadic Serpent Strike to do the same in the opposite order with a Continuous Spell. This theme is led by Ogdoabyss, the Ogdoadic Overlord, which can send all monsters on the field to the GY, except those Special Summoned from the GYs. This quick effect can turn the tide of a duel instantly, especially should you fall behind.

The strength in this strategy doesn’t only lie with the Ogdoadic monsters – it also lies in other Reptile support. Night Sword Serpent is a new TCG World Premiere that can summon itself when sent to the GY by a card effect. Similarly Lightserpent can summon itself when send from the hand to the GY, or Danger!? Tsuchinoko? can do the same if discarded. The Reptilianne engine serves as a consistent way to keep summoning, such as Reptilianne Coatl being able to be Special Summoned by having any DARK Reptile on your field, Reptilianne Nyami to summon back from the GY while your opponent has a monster with 0 ATK, and Reptilianne Echidna to keep your hand full of Reptiles. Don’t forget that Reptilianne Recoil, their field spell, also supports the 0 ATK nature of your Ogdoadic Remnants! Lastly to close out this build is an Alien engine, led by Cosmic Slicer Zer’oll, this engine aims to shut the opponent out of a board of monsters with Planet Pollutant Virus, following by Zer’olls innate ability to lock down the effects of monsters with A-Counters. Altogether, there’s a ton of Snakes, Serpents, and other Reptilian friends here – and I haven’t even talked about the Black Mamba (YGOrg Translation) yet! So slither into a fun strategy with the Ogdoadics!
