Deck Profile Martin Sonne’s Gustos

We’re only a few moments away before the finals will be underway. Since the Feature Match I covered was over in no time, I tried to find another creative Deck that didn’t make the cut. I came across Martin Sonne, who’s usually running up and down the floor, answering the questions of players. He decided to try something different this time, playing instead of judging. He didn’t expect to come out on the very top, so he thought: “If you go down, you should at least go down with style!” – that’s why he’s running Gustos today!

Chances are you’re just as unfamiliar with the cards as I was before I met Martin. That’s why I asked him to explain the basic strategy for us!
You try to make sure you always have a monster on the field. [gulldo] acts as the [sangan] of the theme, with the additional benefit that you can [ss] the monster to the field right away! Most of the times, you’ll pick [winda] as if she’s getting destroyed as a result of battle, you can [ss] the next [gulldo] from your Deck.[br]
That’s still not all! [thunbolt] can also bring out new monsters from your Deck while [windaar] can reanimate some of your fallen Gustos after they have been taken down!
Once you’re gone through most of the loop, you can use [caam] to shuffle 2 of your Gusto monsters back to your Deck and draw a card – it’s like a mini-version of [poa], netting you a nice advantage easily!
Alright, so you can practically stay alive forever. How do you win your games?
This is where [dark simorgh] comes in! Together with [asf], he can shut down most opposing strategies, disabling their whole Spells and Traps!
If they have some cards on the field that can cause me troubles, I still got [gulldos] and [contact] to get rid of them. Oh, and don’t forget [icarus] as it can be used with almost all the monsters I’m running!

Martin Sonne is an early adopter of a Deck that will be an upcoming superstar!

That certainly doesn’t sound too bad. What if the plan doesn’t unfold as planned?
I also have 2 [cs] to swap strong opposing monsters for some Gustos of my own. When I then attack over them, I can again abuse my searcher chains and gain even more advantage.
Additionally, I’m running [teleport] and [krebons], providing me access to most Synchro Monsters. I’m running the whole suite, which can provide me with an out to basically any given situation!
Martin added that the Deck is not quite there yet as it’s still missing some support that will only be released in the upcoming sets. However, it might prove a great idea to get familiar with the archetype already so you won’t be too surprised when somebody you’re getting paired against [ss]s Gusto after Gusto to the field!
