Stupid? NO!! Extremely DUMB!

Yesterday, I spend my whole day home doing school stuff and thinking how to bloody surprise my opponent on the last week for the qualifiers.

My idea, after some thinking and some inspiration from another blog, Venom!!

Yes, that is easily the STUPIDEST idea YET!

But this is NOT without thinking and planning.

And this card is why I plan to build the deck.

If you don't remember this card (for those of you who started in 5D's era, you should), this is one card you wouldn't wanna try remembering its effect. Why? Its VERY VERY Long. And together with the fact that its deck was unplayable.

But what caught my attention was that, Vennominaga has 2 extremely broken effect. 1 being a blanket effect towards spells, traps AND monster effect. The 2nd, and the more important one, is that it has a build in winning condition, by dealing your opponent damage 3 times with this card (which couldn't means 300 out of 8000), you win the duel.

So, destroying it in battle is the only way of getting rid of it? NO, it can be special summon back to the field by removing a reptile in your grave. Oh, I forgot to mention this, but she gains 500 for each reptile in your grave.

Its summoning condition isn't that versatile, but not unmanageable. The real problem why this card doesn't see plays was due to the simple fact that there are no good reptiles, and even if they are (Worms), this card would not be able to fit the flow.

This was the list I was planning to build until I remember 1 very very simple thing.

monster (19):

3 Vennominon the King of Poison Snakes
2 Vennominaga the Deity of Poison Snakes
3 Alien Grey
2 Oshaleon
3 Worm Yagan
3 Worm Xex
1 Evil Dragon Ananta
1 Morphing Jar
1 Sangan

spell (8):

3 Pot of Duality
3 Snake Rain
1 Monster Reborn
1 Dark Hole

trap (12):

3 Rise of the Snake Deity
3 Offering to the Snake Deity
3 Limit Reverse
1 Call of the Haunted
1 Return from a Different Dimension
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Solemn Judgment

Let me explain the deck a little, simply put, its get Vennominon out FAST and getting him to die thus activating Rise of the Snake Deity, and if they don't Solemn it, they are gonna be in DEEP shit.

Snake Rain ditches 4 reptile into the grave, effectively thinning your deck, and Duality is there to search out the 3 Rise of the Snake Deity. Alien Grey and Morphing Jar are there for more draw power, and we have Oshaleon + Sangan for the search, are mostly for Grey for more draw.

Yagan and Xex are in here cause I can't really think of any other good reptile, and they can be tribute fodder for the King or just simply bouncing monsters for Vennominaga.

Offering to the Snake Deity IS Icarus Attack, we all know how powerful this can be.

Evil Dragon Ananta is there for when you have Return from Different Dimension set and wanna push for game, or just simply summon a big monster. This card should be save for the former or game time ONLY, as removing ALL the reptile in your grave won't do you good most of the time.

Why do I say this is a fail attempt to take the meta by surprise ...

1. I forgot that the ASIAN format doesn't allow promo and DT cards ... Oops.

2. Trap Stun is seeing more plays.

So, FAIL!!!
