This Deck is all about laying a beatdown on your opponent! Thanks to the many high-level monsters that bolster ridiculous ATK values, Nicolas won’t have troubles overcoming opposing monsters.
He does have trouble, however, [ss]ing them to the field. That’s where his Field Spell Cards come in. Even if his opponent won’t do Nicolas the favor of destroying [geartown], he can simply set a second copy, which will result in the destruction of the first Field Spell Card. That means, he will in fact get the effect of [geartown] and be able to [ss] [aggd] from somewhere!
Once he has summoned [aggd] this way, he can follow it up with the activation of the new Field Spell Card and the [ss] of [maldust]. It will stay on the field since Nicolas still has another Field Spell and then, together with [aggd], he can start the beatdown!
The rest of the Deck supports this general strategy, either negating opposing cards that might prove troublesome or stripping monsters of their effects, which doesn’t just work against opposing monsters, it’s also good to keep [maldust] on the field in case you lost one of your Field Spell Cards. It’s definitely an interesting Deck and you should try it out for yourself to see if it fits your playstyle!
