Deck Profile: Glenn Schumann’s “PwnDas” Deck
Jerome McHale

Usually when you think of a Beast deck, you think of Berserk Gorilla, Chiron the Mage, and Scapegoat. If you sat down to play Glenn Schumann with those cards in mind, you’d have been sorely disappointed—he doesn’t play any of them. Check out his new take on a Beast deck, based all around Gyaku-Gire Panda:

Gyaku-Gire Panda
3 Nimble Momonga
2 Enraged Battle Ox
2 Giant Rat
1 Airknight Parshath
1 Breaker the Magical Warrior
1 Exiled Force
1 Injection Fairy Lily
1 Sangan
1 Sinister Serpent
1 Tribe-Infecting Virus

Book of Moon
2 Enemy Controller
2 Nobleman of Crossout
1 Delinquent Duo
1 Graceful Charity
1 Heavy Storm
1 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Pot of Greed
1 Premature Burial
1 Snatch Steal
1 Swords of Revealing Light

Bottomless Trap Hole
2 Ojama Trio
1 Call of the Haunted
1 Mirror Force
1 Ring of Destruction
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Windstorm of Etaqua

Side Deck:
Secret Barrel
3 Wave-Motion Cannon
2 Gravity Bind
2 Level Limit – Area B
2 Solemn Judgment
1 Ceasefire
1 Lava Golem
1 Magic Cylinder

Dark Blade the Dragon Knight
2 Ryu Senshi
2 Thousand-Eyes Restrict
1 Dark Baltar The Terrible
Fiend Skull Dragon

Glenn Schumann’s deck takes convention and throws it out the window. On their own, his monsters aren’t really that useful, but once the opponent starts playing some cards, Glenn’s deck picks up steam fast. The Pandas are the perfect card to punish players who rely too much on Scapegoat, and if you’ve been reading the feature match coverage, you know just how much that card has been played.

The purpose of Glenn’s deck is to keep all of his opponent’s monsters in defense mode all the time. From there, he can play his
Gyaku-Gire Pandas, which get a nice healthy attack boost for each monster the opponent has out. They get bonus trample damage, to boot. With all of the Enemy Controllers and Book of Moons and the singleton Windstorm of Etaqua, it’s a pretty sure thing that those opposing monsters will find it difficult to keep themselves in attack mode.

Many duelists underestimate the power of trample in today’s environment, and they are frequently unprepared for decks designed to take advantage of this. Glenn knew that from the start, and the result is a fascinating, counter-metagame deck that’s great at keeping opponents off balance.

In addition to his excellent main deck, Glenn also prepared a surprise side deck for bad matchups. As you can see, that side deck switches his deck from a Beast deck to Stall/Burn—the last thing anyone would expect out of a Beatdown deck.

Glenn is one of many players who have done well with a unique deck today, and that goes to show that our new Advanced format is just what the doctor ordered!
