With this Deck’s concept, “Masked Beast Des Gardius” reguires you to Special Summon it with “Grand Tiki Elder” and “Melchid the Four-Face Beast”, while also using the “World Chalice” monsters that work with Normal Monsters, constructing into a powerful base.

The above mentioned powerful combo of “Ningirsu the World Chalice Warrior” and “Masked Beast Des Gardius” is also a gift to the Special Summon effects of the “World Chalice”, who conversely support the Special Summon of “Masked Beast Des Gardius”, showing a Deck built on some in-depth building capabilities.

In order to allow you to either Special Summon “Masked Beast Des Gardius” or Link Summon “World Chalice” monsters, consider utilizing “Unexpected Dai”.
