Ending Scenes[edit]


Nova runs two types of Decks in the Tag Force series, both of which aim to deck out his opponent.

In Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Tag Force, Nova uses a Deck based on the Exchange of the Spirit OTK.

In the following games, as "Exchange of the Spirit" is Forbidden in the default banlists, his Decks become Remove from play/Mill Decks focusing on "Necroface".
