Deck Profile: Robin Bachofner’s Naturia Scraps

Many of the decks that see a lot of play rely on certain strategies to pull off their winning combos. Sometimes, these strategies are similar enough to combine two different decks. The idea is to come up with a deck that is more than just the sum of its parts! Robin Bachofner tried exactly that by combining Naturias with Scraps – have a look at this creative deck!

I asked how Bachofner came up with the idea for the deck. He admitted that it wasn’t exactly his own idea, but that he was very impressed with Thanh Nguyen’s deck from the Shonen Jump Philadelphia that won him the tournament. Bachofner tried to apply some changes to it so the deck would better go along with his own style of playing. He tried it out, won a smaller tournaments with it and felt confident enough to run it today.

One of the most important aspects is the fact that both [scrap chimera] and [scrap beast] are Beasts, so they work well together with [pineapple]. [pineapple] is only the first of many cards that rely on Graveyard interaction [dash] [scrap chimera], [bulb] and [giga] all rely on the same mechanic.

To fill his Graveyard fast enough, Bachofner is running 3 copies of [ryko] as well as [foolish]. This way, he can fill his Graveyard from early on and set up his combos. Additionally, he relies on [pwwb] [dash] a card that hasn’t seen too much play lately. He can use it as a surprise during the opponent’s End Phase to send [dandy], [spore] or [scrap beast] to the Graveyard, set up a combo for the following turn while slowing his opponent down [dash] all at the same time!

[pwwb] is not the only interesting choice in Bachofner’s deck. He’s also playing [fchalice]; “I thought about running [veiler], but it doesn’t quite work together with [pineapple]. Therefore, I was looking for a different card with a similar effect and eventually stuck with [fchalice]. It can help me against [hyunlei] and [faultroll] [dash] sure, they become stronger, but it’s still more likely that I’ll see the next turn this way and start my comeback.”

Just [bamboo] wasn’t quite enough for Bachofner to shut down his opponents. He also added [whip] to the mix so his opponent would only have 1 chance to use spells or traps every turn. Thanks to his Counter Trap Cards [sj] and [bribe], he would still have an answer if they would make too much of a difference.

There are a couple of 1 of’s in Bachofner’s deck, so it might prove to be a little less consistent than Thanh Nguyen’s deck. However, the evolution of a deck isn’t exactly a streamlined process; you always have to try out new things and see how they’ll turn out in practice. Sometimes you get it wrong, but every once in a while, you’ll stumble across a new card that might push the deck over the edge and allow you to win whole tournaments like a YCS!
