CDP: White Aura Ghoti, ft. PHNI White Support

Went fishing and caught a Porpoise?


Strategic Summary:

Welcome back to another CDP, this time aiming to make use of the new White Aura Fish Synchro support in the upcoming PHNI set. Unfortunately, prior to this profile going live, additional Ghoti support cards have been revealed, so they are not covered in the profile today – I promise I’ll do another Ghoti profile to showcase those in the near-ish future.

As for today’s strategy, it is all about two things: Fish and Synchros. The Ghoti archetype revolves around banishing Fish monsters, bringing them back, and Synchro Summoning during the opponent’s turn to find success. Whether it is Synchro Summoning Ghoti of the Deep Beyond to banish all cards on the field or summoning Askaan, the Bicorned Ghoti just to banish 1, this deck has utility for days with the full pool of WATER Synchro monsters. Most Synchro Summons will come down to using either Shif, Fairy of the Ghoti or Paces, Light of the Ghoti as your Tuners, as they’re both Level 2 and Special Summon themselves during the next Standby Phase after they’re banished. As far as your non-Tuners, Eanoc, Sentry of the Ghoti can be used to tutor a Ghoti Trap card, while Snopios, Shade of the Ghoti carries a Quick Effect to Special Summon itself and banish plenty of other fish from your GY. Ultimately, consistency is ensured by the theme’s Field Spell: The Most Distant, Deepest Depths, as it can banish any Fish from the hand or GY to tutor a Ghoti monster each turn. But we’re not just here to talk Ghoti basics today, let’s talk about the new White Aura support coming down the pike that helps this deck even further!

The White theme consists of a number of Fish monsters that are unique in that they can be treated as Tuners whenever they are Special Summoned from the GY. Debuting in PHNI is two new White monsters that also carry a secondary effect that advances your gameplan, so I’m going to start with White Sardine (YGOrg Translation). When one is in your hand, you can send another from your Deck to the GY to Special Summon it from your hand. It’s a basic Fish extender. Where it becomes more interesting is when you add White Sunfish (YGOrg Translation), which can target a Level 4 or lower Fish you control, Special Summon itself, then Special Summon a monster with the same name from your GY. Combined with Sardine, that’s a Level 6 Synchro Summon, which will most typically be the brand new White Aura Porpoise (YGOrg Translation), which Special Summons any Level 4 or lower Fish from your hand or GY, then you can Summon another with the same name from your GY. If you can’t tell, one Sardine quickly can become two Tuner Sardines and a Level 8 Synchro, opening yourself up to laddering up to bigger Fish, like White Aura Whale. Now remember, the White theme also has a series of Fish support cards such as White Mirror to Special Summon a Fish from your GY and tutor another with the same name or White Reincarnation (YGOrg Translation), which tutors any of your White Fish as well as destroying all monsters your opponent controls when a Level 8 or higher Fish Synchro is Special Summoned from your GY! Take a dive into the Ghoti depths with the White Aura!
