The Toad Fisherman Structure
The latest edition in my never-ending attempts at creating a semi-decent Legendary Fisherman III deck.
This deck revolves around Rank 4 XYZ summons, mainly Bahamut Shark which will then lead into a free Treatoad summon. Treatoad will then be used to lock the opponent out of the duel while you slowly beat them down.
After hours of testing I’ve found it to be very easy to get Bahamut Shark/Treatoad on the field with this deck (even multiple copies) but the main issue resides in the strength of the cards. The highest ATK in the deck is 2600 which can be an issue. The ideal situation is to prevent your opponent from getting high ATK monsters on the field in the first place.
All is not lost if they do manage to get a high ATK monster out though, there are a few ways to defend yourself. The biggest one is summoning Legendary Fisherman III which will wipe out and banish all of your opponents monsters. We can also use Codarus effect to destroy 2 cards the opponent controls and then we have the usual Raigeki/Storming Mirror Force.
One helpful XYZ is Number 37: Hope Woven Dragon Spider Shark which can lower the ATK of all your opponents monsters by 1000 which can get you out of a sticky situation.
And remember, if you have a choice of 3 level 4 monsters to XYZ, make sure to not use the “Aqua” type monster as it can then be used for Treatoads effect (otherwise you have to use Treatoad itself to resolve the effect).
All in all, it’s not the most potent deck available by any means but it’s definitely the best one I’ve created which incorporates The Legendary Fisherman III.
Possible card additions (while retaining the general Water/Fisherman theme):
- Water Hazard for easy XYZ summons.
- Eisbahn is a nuisance of a card and can potentially save you in some situations.
- Tornado Wall is a card that is not really used anymore but still has a decent effect.
- Deep Diver which is the absolute best search card for Legendary Fisherman III.
- Deep Sea Diva into Legendary Atlantean Tridon into an easy Poseidra, the Atlantean Dragon.
- Mother Grizzly to retain a monster for XYZ summons. Not recommended as it’s too slow.
- Aquarium Stage/Aquarium Set. I used to run both of these cards in all of my WATER based decks but I find that my opponent always has easy ways around them.
- Abyss Soldier is an extremely useful card and could very well have had a place in this deck.
|Legendary Ocean + Legendary Fisherman + Legendary Fisherman III||Instant Legendary Fisherman III.|
|Tin Goldfish/Silent Angler + Lvl 4 Monsters||XYZ into Bahamut Shark which then leads into Treatoad.|
|Performal Plus Turtle + A Legendary Ocean||Plus Turtle temporarily over-writes the effect of a Legendary Ocean allowing potential Rank 4 XYZs in an emergency.|
|Greydle Split + Performal Plus Turtle||Special Summon 2 Level 3s and then use Plus Turtle to rank them up to rank 4 and go with the XYZ chain of Bahamut into Treatoad.|
|Tin Goldfish + Codarus + Warrior of Atlantis||Send Warrior of Atlantis to the Graveyard and use a Legendary Ocean. Use Tin Goldfish and special summon Codarus. Use Codarus effect to destroy 2 opponents cards. XYZ into Bahamut and then use effect into Treatoad.|
|Instant Fusions plays||The most obvious being Elder Entity Norden for easy Rank 4 plays but it can also be used to special summon (preferably Rare Fish) a quick tribute for Legendary Fisherman into Legendary Fisherman III if you don’t have a Legendary Ocean available.|
|Greydle Split effect + A Legendary Ocean||XYZ into Treatoad.|
