Reginald plays an Xyz WATER Deck[1] consisting of monstrous looking sea creatures such as various races of sharks and arthropods. His nickname is "Shark" and is derived from his Deck theme and his previous brutal nature. Reginald acquired his Deck from his father at a young age.[2]

Shark utilizes a Burn strategy in order to gain an early advantage through cards such as "Submersible Carrier Aero Shark" and "Booming Urchin", with a focus on Rank 3 Xyz Monsters. After losing to Yuma he modified his Deck to counter the "Numbers" by negating their effects with his ace monster "Black Ray Lancer"[3], as well as cards to take control of them. Reginald's Deck also sports a few cards that destroy Spell and Trap Cards such as "Skull Kraken" and "Mystical Space Typhoon".

During the World Duel Carnival preliminaries, Shark continues to use similar strategies as he did previously, with a focus on Rank 3 Xyz Monsters, also adding Level manipulation cards like "Falling Current" and "Hammer Shark".

After obtaining "Number C32: Shark Drake Veiss" through Chaos Xyz Evolution, Shark also began to use more members of the "Shark" archetype.

Shark's Deck has become even more flexible in terms of his use of Xyz Summoning, now ranging from Rank 3 to Rank 5. In addition, he also uses a large quantity of cards to swarm monsters to Xyz Summon such as "Tri-Slice", "Panther Shark" and "Eagle Shark". His Deck also features a range of new "Shark" monsters as well as other aquatic fauna like "Big Whale" and "Starfish". Shark also uses a number of cards to reduce the amount of Xyz Material required for his monsters such as "Double Fin Shark", "Xyz Crown" and "Ghost Salvage".

Shark's Deck now focuses more on Rank 5 Xyz Summons, primarily his newly acquired "Numbers" through cards such as "Edict of Atlantis" and "Depth Shark". He also uses a multitude of cards to negate attacks such as "Hide and Shark" and "Deep Current".

Barian Emperor Onslaught[edit]

Quattro 124-126 Win
Vector 136-137 Win
Don Thousand 138-141 Win (w/Yuma Tsukumo)
Yuma Tsukumo 141-143 Lose

Upon regaining his identity and powers as a Barian Emperor, Nash continues to use the same Deck he used as a human, with the addition of his new "Over-Hundred Number", "Number 101: Silent Honor ARK", along with its upgraded form. He also supplements his Deck with "Rank-Up-Magic" cards such as "Rank-Up-Magic - The Seventh One", which lets him Rank-Up his "Over-Hundred Number" from the Graveyard, field or Extra Deck and "Rank-Up-Magic Quick Chaos", a Quick-Play Spell Card which allowed him to instantly Rank-Up his "Number 73: Abyss Splash" into "Number C73: Abyss Supra Splash". Nash is also able to perform a "Chaos Draw" which allows him to create and draw cards that allow him to counter his opponent's strategy.

After Don Thousand's defeat, Nash acquired the other six "Over-Hundred Numbers" and their "Chaos" versions. He used another variant of this Deck, which focused on swarming the field with those "Numbers", using several support cards such as "Chaos Hundred Universe", "Duo of the Seven Emperors" and "Hundred Summon" to Summon them. The final goal of this is to Summon "CXyz Barian Hope", a monster that can use the effects of all the "Chaos Over-Hundred Numbers".
