Deck Concept

By using the second effect of “Charging Gaia”, you can add the following to your hand:
• “Gaia the Magical Knight”
• “Gaia The Fierce Knight”
• “Curse of Dragonhex”
• “Curse of Dragon”

Elsewise, the effects of cards like “Gateway of Chaos” or “Keeper of Dragon Magic” add vital cards to your hand, allowing you to pressure your opponent with high ATK.

A “Sky Galloping Gaia the Dragon Champion” Fusion Summoned using “Spiral Fusion” OR a “Gaia” monster backed up by “Spiral Spear Strike”, works well against a “Grinder Golem” in Defense Position.
