Playing style[edit]

A Legendary Ocean Deck[edit]

Numerous water decks rely on the Field Spell Card "A Legendary Ocean" to perform powerful effects. One way is with the "Levia-Dragon - Daedalus" or its superior, the "Ocean Dragon Lord - Neo-Daedalus". Both monsters' effects require "Umi" to be on the field (which "A Legendary Ocean" is treated as). As a result, the entire field is destroyed except the "Daedalus", leaving the user a clear field to perform direct attacks on the opponent. If "Abyssal Kingshark" is on the field when you activate the effect of "Daedalus", the "Kingshark" is not destroyed. Normally, people would prefer "A Legendary Ocean" for this operation in contrast to "Umi", because Summoning "Daedalus" would only require one Tribute. Others prefer to use the card "Big Wave Small Wave" to Summon "Daedalus", which is a smart addition to WATER Decks using these tactics. Another good idea is using "Warrior of Atlantis" to search out "A Legendary Ocean". Historically the Level reduction effect of "A Legendary Ocean" would be used with "Gravity Bind" and "Level Limit - Area B" to create a one-sided lockdown, a combo which would form the basis of Structure Deck: Fury from the Deep. With the introduction of Xyz Monsters and Link Monsters, who lack levels, this lockdown no longer sees use as most decks can easily bypass it without significant effort.
