The Organization | Creative Deck Profile: Folgo Assault PUNK Fur Hire, ft. BUDDY Support


Has anyone called furry mercenaries?


Strategy Summary:

Today’s profile focuses on the Fur Merc archetype, a motley group of companions who Special Summon other members of the archetype and have effects that trigger when a Fur Merc is Special Summoned. Let’s start with Beat, mercenary fur swordsman, as it familiarizes itself with a Fur Merc monster each time another is Special Summoned. Additionally, as with most monsters in this theme, it can Special Summon another “Fur Hire” monster from the hand. That’s right, this theme also has text upside down…for…reasons? Anyway, Filo, courier who rents furs and Seal, Fur Merc Strategist are the other main monsters, as Filo Special Summons a Fur Mercenary from the Graveyard and Seal retrieves a Fur Mercenary from the Graveyard into his hand. This allows you to expand your games. The chains of Fur Hire are crowned by the monster bosses – Rafale, fur rental champion adds a card from the top of your deck to the hand when Special Summoned, as well as carrying an effect to negate an opponent’s monster effect. In the same way, Wiz, Sage Fur Renter gains LP when Special Summoned and carries an effect to negate an opponent’s Spell/Trap. This crew is led by none other than Folgo, mercenary judge of furs, a Link 3 boss that Special Summons a Fur Merc from the bridge during the Link Summon. Folgo maintains it though with its second effect – if you destroy an opponent’s card by battle or card effect, Folgo lets you draw 1 card AND 2 more if you have 3 Fur Merce on the board. If Folgo is that powerful, let’s talk about how the other engines here support his summoning.

The first is the Activate assault mode engine, driven by Psi Reflector. For those who don’t know, Psi Reflector tutors assault beast on summon, then Beast guardians Activate assault modeso Psi Reflector can return the Beast directly to your field by revealing this Trap Card. Although this is usually used for setting up Synchronized Summons, here are two types of Folgo Summon, which are Link Summoned using 3 monsters of different types. The other engine in play here is the PUNK engine, which I recently covered in a pure version here: RDP: Pure PUNK Art. With monsters of different types held together by level 3 psychic tuners such as Noh PUNK Ze Aminthis engine performs brilliantly to provide a read string in an array of additional power options such as Psychic Final Punisher or PUNK JAM Dragon Drive (YGOrg translation). Since both of these engines use psychic monsters, Emergency Teleport is a shoe game, giving you everything you need for a full combo before turning to your Fur Mercenaries… This explosive deck really showcases the power of the Fur Mercenaries archetype – hope you brought coins to pay for their services!
