An Update: Dimensional Eatos

Banishing Helps A Lot!

As most of you know what happened at Atlanta, Georgia Frazier Smith won with Gravekeepers and so did his colleagues. Well I showed a somewhat new archtype that broke the meta as well, but most people didn’t notice. It was Eatos Macro! Here is the decklist that I used that changed what people thought of the deck “Eatos Macro”

YCS Atlanta Georgia:

Kevin Silva ( Top 16 – Dimensional Eatos)

Monsters:

3 Guardian Eatos

3 D.D. Warrior Lady

3 Thunder King Rai-Oh

3 Breaker the Magical Warrior

1 Banisher of the Radiance

1 Blackwing Gale the Whirlwind

1 D.D. Survivor

2 Karakuri Ninja mdl 339 “Sazank”

Spells:

3 Dimensional Fissure

2 Mystical Space Typhoon

3 Pot of Duality

1 Monster Reborn

1 Dark Hole

3 Book of Moon

1 Reinforcement of the Army

Traps:

2 Solemn Warning

3 Dimensional Prison

2 Bottomless Trap Hole

1 Mirror Force

1 Solemn Judgment

1 Macro Cosmos

Extra Deck:

2 Scrap Dragon

3 Chimeratech Fortress Dragon

1 Goyo Guardian

1 Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier

2 Arcanite Magician

1 Ally of Justice Catastor

1 Stardust Dragon

1 Colossal Fighter

1 Dark End Dragon

1 X-Saber Urbellum

1 Black Rose Dragon

Side Deck:

3 Cyber Dragon

1 Karakuri Ninja mdl 339 “Sazank”

2 Fossil Dyna Pachycephalo

2 Shield Crush

1 Nobleman of extermination

2 Smashing Ground

3 Zoma the Spirit

1 Royal Oppression

At the time I was using 3 book of moons which is obviously now limited to one.  I also used surprise factor cards such as Karakuri ninja mdl 339 “Sazank” and “zoma the spirit”. Those 2 key cards helped me win over half my games at YCS Atlanta. If you are going to nationals 2011 this year be sure to know that the surprise factor matters more than anything. No one is going to be prepared for random cards they are prepared for six samurais, gravekeepers, and plants. Since that is an old decklist let me show an updated revised version of Eatos Macro that way you can have an idea of what you could run for this nationals 2011.

Monsters 16:

3 Guardian Eatos

3 D.D. Warrior Lady

2 Banisher of the Radiance

3 Reborn Tengu

2 Deep Sea Diva

3 Breaker the Magical Warrior

Spells  11:

3 Dimensional Fissure

3 Pot of Duality

2 Mystical space typhoon

1 Book of moon

1 Monster Reborn

1 Dark Hole

Traps

2 Solemn Warning

1 Macro Cosmos

3 Dimensional Prison

1 Solemn Judgment

1 Royal Oppression

2 Seven Tools of the bandit

2 Compulsory Evacuation Device

1 Mirror force

A Sample side deck would be this:

3 Fossil Dyna Pachycephalo

2 Kinetic Soldier

3 Offerings to the Doomed

2 Bottomless Trap Hole

1 Cyber Dragon

3 Zoma the Spirit

1 Snipe Hunter

During this meta game a lot of cuts and different kinds of choices had to be made in order to satisfy the formats needs. They are to get rid of T.G. Hyper Librarian as quickly as possible off the field. Or Create a situation where you make T.G. Hyper Librarian and while they deal with it you create an advantage for yourself.

For the first part of the deck I want to explain is the Banisher of the Radiance. Many plant variants tend to set Ryko / Dandylion / Doppelwarrior / Glow up Bulb as their opening turn. When you open up Banisher/Dimensional Fissure and they have Ryko set face down, they are forced to pick either Banisher or Dimensional Fissure and still get all their cards banihsed, well at least the monsters. These cards are important to all plant players for the use of Pot of Avarice, Monster Reborn, Debris Dragon, Foolish Burial, Junk Synchron, and so much more.

Another part of the deck is the 2 Deep Sea Divas. They don't seem like much at first, but adding synchro opportunities makes this deck a live deck. Synchroing together Banisher of the Radiance and Deep sea Diva you create T.G. Hyper Librarian and you must only synchro when you have Dimensional Fissure or Macro out to keep your Guardian Eatos Live.

The Only time you can afford to put a monster in your graveyard is when you have Monster Reborn or you are down to 2 or 1 Eatos left inside the deck.

The next topic I want to talk about in the deck is the spell line up. It is solid from my point of view, the 1 card you can add in if you dislike the main deck is Forbidden chalice, since it deals with the problem Ryko Lightsworn Hunter and of course Black Rose Dragon. The 3 Pot of Duality makes the deck consistent, without these do not bother making this deck, there is no replacement unfortunately.

The Trap line up, always near the most important variant inside any Banish deck variant. Instead of playing  2 bottomless trap hole, I put them into the side deck for 2 compulsory evacuation device. That card seems more threatening then bottomless has been lately, due to all the synchro summon and due to it's ability to chain to any effect unlike bottomless. Solemn Warning is such a key card in this deck, stopping six samurai plays, most synchros, and the one threat to any Anti meta deck: Gorz the Emissary of Darkness. Dimensional Prison seems bad this format but combined with Macro Cosmos and Banisher of the Radiance along with Fossil Dyna in the side deck, Dimensional Prison becomes as live as ever, always shutting down the opponent's hope to come back.

Now to talk about the side deck in complete detail.

3 Fossil Dyna, it's so necessary, haven't you noticed? Everyone special summons even this deck! Fossil dyna shuts down plants, Six samurais, X sabers, Frog Monarchs, Fish FTK, Tech Genus, Gladiator Beasts, and many other decks that just aim to synchro summon!

2 Kinetic soldiers, Other anti meta variants such as hero beat will be somewhat popular, addding this to your deck can stop those anti meta variants, random D.D. warrior lady techs, and of course Six Samurai.

1 Cyber Dragon Most likely, you will end up siding out Guardian Eatos, a good replacement card against Gravekeepers and such is Cyber Dragon, since it is stronger then every card in their entire deck, and works against karakuris like a Raigeki(sending them all to the graveyard), it works in advantage to you.

1 Snipe Hunter A Strange choice, but much needed in a format like this, where everyone puts everything to the field as fast as they can, not worrying or caring about anything that happens. Snipe Hunter is a good surprise factor to throw off the opponent, and if your lucky win most games!

3 Offerings to the Doomed It's the new book of moon, destruction and minus form. It allows you to disrupt your opponent's plays, and maintain complete control. When it comes to game 2 and 3, your opponent is more prepared, but not for Offerings to the Doomed!

2 Bottomless Trap Hole A very strong card, never cut it ever. It stops Gladiator Beasts, most anti meta decks, and surprise decks as well. Good defense to back up your Banisher and Fossil Dyna, overall very strong side deck card for Eatos players.

3 Zoma the Spirit A personal favorite, saved me many games and won me many games, extremely explosive and burn damage as well. I have nothing bad to say about this card, except it get wrecked by Spell/Trap Destruction which is a little bit more popular nowadays. If you choose to use this card, when setting up, always play Zoma first, then normal summon Fossil Dyna, Breaker, or D.D. Warrior lady, this deck can go off much quicker with Zomas installed into the deck.

    i like the deck and the build, however i was quite surprised that you were not running or at least siding a King Tiger Wanghu, i run the same type of deck and i see King Tiger Wanghu as almost a must for the amount of extra lock down it causes.

    • I understand your points, but that card has issues as much as doomcaliber knight does, and I don and losing to Reborn Tengu crashes, and set rykos are no fun at all to me 🙁 , that is why I chose not decided not to use it
