The addition of Snake Rain has given us a fairly easy of filling the Graveyard with Reptile-Type monsters to banish to Summon Evil Dragon Ananta, greatly improving any Deck that featured this Level 8 monster.
Both Snake Rain and Venom Shot allow you to send Reptile-Type monsters from your Deck to the Graveyard. Before the introduction of these two Spell Cards, you had to rely primarily on Skreech to fill your Graveyard with multiple cards to banish for Ananta, but now we have a way more consistent way of doing so.
While Venom Swamp is on the field, all monsters lose 500 ATK for each Venom Counter on them. Additionally, during each player’s End Phase, this Field Spell will place a Venom Counter on every face-up non-“Venom” monster. Essentially Venom Swamp makes Venom Counters work and it also distributes them.
Venom Snake is a 1200 ATK monster that, once per turn, allows you to place a Venom Counter on a face-up monster your opponent controls, but it cannot attack the turn its effect is activated. Venom Serpent has 200 less ATK than Venom Snake, the same effect, but it can attack during the turn its effect is activated. Both of these monsters have a ridiculously low ATK, but Venom Swamp, Venom Shot, and their own effect can sort of make up for it.
Evil Dragon Ananta is a Level 8 monster that can be Special Summoned by banishing all Reptile-Type monsters on your side of the field and Graveyard. For each monster that was removed from play in order to Summon it, Ananta gains 600 ATK and DEF, which means that, in order to reach a decent amount of ATK, you would probably need to banish at least 5 (3000 ATK and DEF).
During each of your End Phases, Evil Dragon Ananta allows you to destroy a card on the field. This is the main reason why you would want to run this monster. Even if you end up banishing a single monster to Summon it, Ananta is capable of continuously removing cards from the field, slowly depleting your opponent’s resources.
This Skill, in combination with Cosmic Cyclone, will allow you to draw Evil Dragon Ananta when you need it. The recent changes to Draw Sense: High Level are another big improvement that was made to this Deck.
