Deck Profile: Zoltan Kolonics’ Atlantean Frog Deck
11.12.2016 | 12:30
Zoltan Kolonics is from Hungary. He is running a very unique Atlantean Frog deck and we were curious on why he decided to combine these to enignes. We met him after Round 11 coming back from a draw. He’s holding 26 points and it’s not sure whether he will make the top cut. Read on to find out what Zoltan has to say about his unique deck!

[b] Hi Zoltan, tell us why you brought your unique Atlantean Frog deck to YCS Bochum? [/b]
[quote] It’s an Atlantean deck with Paleozoics. I was sure to play Paleozoics for this event as the deck has such an amazing match-up against Metalfoes. I like playing it because the deck can buy you enough time to develop your board. All the other decks feel like a hit and run strategy at the moment. The Atlantean engine helps to handle problem cards like [jinzo], [decree] and [denko]. I can stall in the early game using [cat shark]. Whan I detach I get to pop a card with [ahi]. The deck can also play aggressive putting a lot of pressure on my opponent until they run out of traps. The mirror match is a resource game. With the Atlantean engine I usually have more monsters than my opponent. [nepta] is just a great card in general, it’s a +1.
[b] What were your expectations for this event?[/b]
[quote] I did not expect to do that good. I was surprised that the deck is running so well today. I guess it’s due to the fact that I’m playing my own unique creation this event. Until now I was more or less netdecking the best decks of the latest events. My best result was 7 wins at YCS Rimini. Right now my record is 8:1:2 and I hope to sneak into the Top 32. When I rely on my own build it seems to work out a lot better.
[b] Do have any Tech cards?[/b]
[quote] I run [cc] in my Side Deck. I put it in against mostly anything. It’s good against Paleozoics, because I banish a trap and they lose the chance to chain the effect of their trap cards. Against Metalfoes I use it to banish [m fusio]. As they are only running one copy they lose the ability to fusion summon at all. I will probably main it after the event.
[b] What is the best opening hand?[/b]
[quote] I want to see [diva], [swap frog] and [ahi]. I can open with [psy omega] and [toadally] and 4 cards in my hand. I was thinking running [moulin] but I didn’t want to be too much dependent on opening with [diva]. It’s dead otherwise.
[b] Any last words?[/b]
[quote] Shoutouts to Legany Barnabas for playtesting and helping me build the deck. Shoutouts to Nagy Krisztian for giving me the Atantean cards and shoutouts to Mednyänszky Robert for giving me a Coral Dragon. Last but not least I want to give shoutouts to Burkus Bence, because he’s so bad that he will never have the opportunity to appear in a coverage without getting a shoutout. *laughs*.
