Default <('_'<) The $55 Atlantean Deck (>'_')>

More like $75 but meh.

I love and loathe structure decks, while they can be wonderful for new players and give us amazing reprints they can cripple the value of your collection with all of Konami's stupid reprints.... grrr. Anyway since I myself am relatively poor and don't want to spend all my money on pieces of paper I have devised a budget Atlantean deck like I did in the past for dragons, which unlike darkworld and sams, aren't obvious to make for the new or casual player. Don't buy the structure decks, buy or trade for singles. Now that Konami has reprinted an integral card for the deck to operate effectively I will now breathe new life into this deck.

Don't run Poseidra, its crap.
You want to use either of these decks to be very annoying and make your opponent lose card advantage. This is pretty easy to do since in this format there are many slower decks that cannot easily generate massive advantage so against anyone unprepared for this matchup or with little knowledge of Atlanteans you basically have a win.

Things to remember:
If the Mermails, Number 17 or Abyss Soldier are veilered or a face-up Skill Drain is on the field or any other effects that negate card effects are in play you can still activate the effects of these monsters and discard atlanteans in order to blow stuff up.
If the activation of the effect is negated by a card such as Evolzar Dolkka the effects of the atlanteans will activate.
Don't run a variant with Swap Frog. This card does not send cards to the grave as a cost for an effect but rather a summon and will not activate the Atlantean's effects.

If you run Genex Ally Birdman then add Daigusto Phoenix in the extra for the OTK. We want to add as much edge to the deck as possible since we don't have Mermails yet.

Yeah I'm thinking about that right now, it's just Daigusto Phoenix is pushing the budget a bit here.

I'd try to fit in a second birdman. Recycling Divas are kinda good.

Done, I dropped a Salvage for it. If sturge and spike will be added to the deck if they aren't rarity bumped.

Megalo probably can't be used in an extremely budget build.

Looks good and at a nice budget. I'll suggest

- Abyss Soldier
- Mirror Force
- CED

+ Gorz
+ Salvage
+ POA


Why only 2 Markman? In my testing its one of the decks best cards. Although I mainly play online with mermails I find it extremely easy to clear the feild and get his effect off. If you can attack clear with him he does 1400 + 1800 damage which is pretty crazy. It's also easy to back this up with Gachi making him do 1400 + 400 + 1800 + 400 = 4000 damage on his own!

Looks good. I was wondering if you can check out my Atlantean deck and let me know you think.

Call of the Atlanteans is too inconsistent at 2. Take 1-2 out for some stuff. Duality maybe?

I reakon the Undine Engine doesnt do anything for the deck at this stage until Moulinglacia and Mermail's are TCG. But keep birdman. Diva-Birdman Plays are endless

It's still amazing without the Mermails as well.

We can't really use Moulinglacia in a budget build, its a secret apparently. I can never draw the birdmans -__-

Am I trying to do too much by using the undine engine with mermails? I often feel that I can't do much after using undine, sturge and spike and then controler just sits in my hand doing nothing.

Additional Comment:

will end up dropping undine in the ABYR build. I'm fond of making it more backrow orientated.

Additional Comment:

It wins against decks you wouldn't necessarily consider amazing. If your budget allows for it run duality and please get catastor.

Nice work for a budget build!! You might feel left out when mermails come to break at atlanteans and steal there budgetness. Do we know which good mermails wont be budget compatible yet?

Abysslide is atleast an ultra rare, possibly secret
Abyssmegallo I believe is ultra as well
Spike is probably a rare

Additional Comment:

Tg striker
Undine sets up your grave, gets allure fodder, and triggers Atlantean effects. It's mostly summon search (draw two if your lucky), pop a card and end. Sets up Surface and call of Atlantean and salvages even without moulinglacia

Abyssmegalo is a secret, lynde is an ultra but I feel it will settle around $5 since you would only ever really use 1. I don't like lynde atm :/. Spike and sturge are rares while moulinglacia is a secret.

I miss the undines, but what I don't miss are the terrible hands controller gives me.

I've tested a similar build to that but I'm not the greatest player when it comes to atlanteans so I didn't really like the feel for it. I need a better insight into first turn plays and undine plays. I haven't read any guides or watched any videos about them and I need a bit more practice with them.

What about Call of the Atlanteans? I think it could be useful for your original deck since you have lots of level 3 monsters.

I've tested call of the atlanteans and the card isn't needed imo. I dropped it due to a lack of space but if anyone wants to try it out in their budget build I would say it's an ok choice, not the best though.

I dropped it because I rarely ever have 3 level 3 or lower Sea Serpents in my grave at one time. I mean I run 2 Salvage and 1 Pot of Avarice (which is amazing when you actually draw that card), so basically I recycle my Divas, Marksman, Abyss Soldier, Undine and Controller. Salvage is an awesome card in the deck. Bring back a Diva and a Marksman.

There is only one card I hate drawing in this deck but it has to be in the deck and that is Genex Controller. I wish Genex Undine had this effect:

Quote:
When this card is Normal Summoned, you can send 1 WATER monster from the deck to the graveyard to add 1 "Genex" tuner to your hand.

Additional Comment:

The mermail build can't be made for $5 but the Undine build can.
