Yu-gi-oh! Deck Guide - Plants - Part 1

Right now, there's two possible paths to take with Plants at the moment. One will be showcased in this post, and the other will be posted later. Right now, here's the rundown of the cards for the strategy:

Fallen Angel of Roses
*******   Attribute: Earth
You can return 1 face-up Plant-Type monster you control to the hand, except "Fallen Angel of Roses", and Special Summon this card from your hand. If this card is Special Summoned this way, remove it from play when it is removed from the field.
ATK: 2400   DEF: 1300

With this card, it'll become slightly easier to summon a 2400 monster, and be able to reuse one Plant-type monster's effect to your liking.

Naturia Bamboo Shoot
*****    Attribute: Earth
If this card is Tribute Summoned by Tributing a "Naturia" monster, while this card remains face-up on the field, your opponent cannot activate Spell or Trap Cards.
ATK: 2000   DEF: 2000

A lockdown out for this deck. Once this is summoned, if they do not have a card that can overpower this thing immediately, then they'll be taking a few hits, which can lead to winning a game.

Queen Angel of Roses
*******   Attribute: Earth
You can Tribute Summon this card in face-up Attack Position by Tributing 1 Plant-Type monster. Once per turn, during your Standby Phase, destroy 1 face-up monster on the field with the lowest ATK.
ATK: 2400   DEF: 1300

This card can become an out to an immediate threat that comes up. Another combination that I use to make sure this card doesn't get destroyed is as follows:

Queen Angel of Roses + Naturia Pineapple

With those two, I can chose which effect can go first, second, or potentially third. For example, if I want to get rid of an opponent's monster that has less ATK than Queen Angel of Roses, I would pick Queen Angel's effect to go first. Otherwise, I would use Naturia Pineapple's effect, then Queen Angel's effect, then Naturia Pineapple's effect, since it is still in the Standby Phase. The last card is listed below:

Naturia Pineapple
**   Attribute: Earth
All face-up monsters you control are treated as Plant-Type. If this card is in your Graveyard during your Standby Phase, and you control no Spell or Trap Cards, you can Special Summon this card. This effect cannot be activated if you control a face-up "Naturia Pineapple" or if there are any monsters in your Graveyard that are not Plant-Type or Beast-Type.
ATK: 100   DEF: 100

This card can be used to fulfill the requirements to summon one of the three above, and then still come back to be reused for all the card effects that this deck has to offer.

Rate, comment, fix, thoughts, and discuss. Enjoy!


  1. Interesting build. How is testing ?

    1. The problem it has is when there's a stronger monster that I can't get over, which leads into a loss.

  2. black corn stops stalls, -1 pineapple +1 Gorz -3 evil thorn +3 naturia cherries

  3. Add black corn, -1 pineapple for +1 tragodia -3 evil thorns for +3 cherries to ad synchroing

  4. @ DatNew ploof

    Pineapple is needed within this build, so I kept it at 3, to not only get use out of the effect, but also be able to use the main beaters in this build.

    No suggestion of anything AWAY from Plant-Types. Hence no Gorz or Tragoedia.

    Stall isn't the problem, so Black Corn isn't really needed. The problem I had was getting over boss monsters that were higher than 2400.

    I may look into trading Evil Thorn for Naturia Cherries and see if that works.
