Freed and Grandmole

I bet most of you are gonna go like "What the Fuck!?" when you saw those two in the list. I'm not crazy and I'm not doing this without a solid reason. I firmly believe the only other deck that could be a threat to Agents in Asia format aside from Gadgets, would be another Agent. Some might say Dark Worlds and their Dragged down are too pro for Agents, well, Dark World and Agents were at Worlds last year, Agents dominated the field. At least until we get Dark Smog and TGU over here, Agents are gonna beat DW 8 out of 10 times.

Now, why do I main those 2? Simple, to get rid of Hyperion, Krystia and Gachi Gachi. What if my opponent plays Herald of Orange Light on them? Let them, these 2 are the perfect bait for those cards. Grandmole is excellent against Agents, I know this from experience. Freed is something I just thought of. I was test playing with Agents the entire afternoon, but almost always draws into Krystia too late in the game. Sometimes, theres just too many Fairies in my grave, others, I'm staring down on a Krystia. I look through my binder and found this thing. I was like "Why not?"

Freed is a good tech, it gets rid of big monsters and tutors my grave for Krystia. Both of these cards serve the same purpose, forcing negation. Letting me drop Hyperion-sama without fear.

Effect Veiler vs Herald of Orange Light

I have no doubt that Herald of Orange Light [HOL] is an amazing card. But, my build runs too little fairies in my opinion to play it effectively. Also, I'm not a big fan of 2-for-1's, playing HEROs for too long gives you that mentality. Effect Veiler needs no introductions, but its very rarely played in Agents, mainly because of HOL. 

HOL is better in the Agent Mirror Matches, also against DW(well, at least it does something) and Rabbit. Veiler does a better job against Gadgets, HEROs and some of the rogue match ups where the monsters aren't big to begin with. Since I already main hate for the mirror match, I suppose I play some hate for Gadgets as well, arguably the top deck of the META in my opinion.


The other cards are quite standard, I also included the TG engine, just to maintain card advantage and also increase the Dark count in the deck for BLS. They will most likely be replaced by TGUs following her release. Although I doubt I'll stick to this deck by that time, since I'm not THAT big of an Agent fan, its just that I have the entire deck lying in my binder.

I guess that wraps up what I wanna say for now. The format's ending and we can now finally close the books to what many describes as "The Worst Format in the History of Yu-Gi-Oh!". Also, on side note, I've finally form a team for Asia Plus. I'm teaming up with the Arcobelenos again this year (this makes it like what? The 3rd year in a row? LOL), Sunny is in my team, though I'm not quite sure who is our 3rd teammate.

Good call on Freed. It's an interesting tech choice.
