After I started playing Yugioh network, I’ve been able to toy around with and test out lot of decks. I’ve created my great Dark World Infirnity deck and have even beat down some duelists with a great Alien deck. However, one of the decks I had been trying to make for a long time (and finally got the chance to thanks to Yugioh Network) was Spell Counter Explosion. This deck basically utilizes cards that distribute spell counters and cards that are powered by those spell counters. The deck revolves around the field spell Magical Citadel of Endymion. I didn’t really expect the deck to be great, but it has proven to be astonishingly strong and so far, I have a record of 3-2 with Spell Counter Explosion.
Now don’t confuse Spell Counter Explosion with the deck Magical Explosion, as Magical Explosion focuses for on milling, stocking up on spells, and dealing great amounts with the trap card Magical Explosion. Spell Counter Explosion utilizes cards like Breaker the Magical Warrior, Pitch Black Power Stone, and Mega Ton Magical Cannon. The best thing about the deck is that it is fast and you can deal big damage pretty much any turn. As for the ‘Trump Card’ of Spell Counter Explosion, I’d say it is Arcanite Magician Assault Mode. Arcanite Magician Assault Mode is the power-form of Arcanite Magician and thus it has the same affect, but amplified: When this card is Special Summoned, place 2 Spell Counters on it. This card gains 1000 ATK for each Spell Counter on it. You can remove 2 Spell Counters from this card to destroy all cards your opponent controls. When this card on the field is destroyed, you can Special Summon 1 “Arcanite Magician” from your Graveyard. It’s a very powerful card as it is, and in a Spell Counter Explosion deck where you can stack spell counters on a monster with ease, just think how unstoppable this monster could be.
I think Spell Counter Explosion is another one those really underrated (yet powerful) decks, as I never see it used in duels. I can’t wait for the release of the ultimate spell counter monster; Arcanite Magician, the Supreme Wizard which will arrive in the Starstrike Blast booster pack. Spell Counter Explosion may not be a tier 0 or even tier 1 deck, but it sure is a strong and fun deck to play with! My overall record in Yugioh Network is currently 10-8, and four of those wins are thanks to Spell Counter Explosion!
