<Reasons For Its Popularity>

■ Thanks to “Cyber Dragon Nova” whose effect activates if sent to the GY, as well as “Cyber Dragon Sieger” (who is treated as “Cyber Dragon” while in the GY, this Deck has a fantastic match-up against Dragma. If it has to go second, it can adjust which attacks to make and how quickly depending on the opponent’s speed. – ソーイチ ・ロウ

■ It’s a Deck whose Deck Power is incredibly well balanced to deal with going first and second. If it goes first, it can bring out “Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon” and “Cyber Dragon Infinity”. If you go second, use the high ATK of Cyber Dragons and their ability to attack multiple times to let you crush the opponent immediately, while also utilizing cards to suppress the opponent’s.
