How to Use

Subterror Nemesis Warrior

Subterror Nemesis Warrior
Subterror Nemesis Warrior
EARTH Warrior ★4
ATK 1800 / DEF 1200
Blazing Rose [R]
During either player's turn: You can send 1 "Subterror" monster from your Deck to the Graveyard; Tribute this card and at least 1 other monster so the total original Levels Tributed equal or exceed the Level of that "Subterror" monster in the Graveyard, and if you do, Special Summon that monster in face-up or face-down Defense Position. If a "Subterror Behemoth" monster is flipped face-up while this card is in your Graveyard: You can Special Summon this card. You can only use each effect of "Subterror Nemesis Warrior" once per turn.

Normal Summon Subterror Nemesis Warrior and activate your Skill by returning a card from your hand to the Deck. During your opponent’s Standby Phase (Toggle Button ON), activate Subterror Nemesis Warrior’s effect, send Subterror Behemoth Umastryx or Subterror Behemoth Stygokraken from your Deck to the Graveyard and Tribute Subterror Nemesis Warrior and Grand Tiki Elder or Melchid the Four-Face Beast to Special Summon in face-up or face-down Defense Position the “Subterror Behemoth” that was sent to the Graveyard.

If you activate the Skill Masked Tribute you cannot Normal or Special Summon monsters for the rest of the turn, so you will have to wait for your opponent’s turn to Summon a “Subterror Behemoth”. If there’s a Lava Golem or a Parasite Paracide on your side of the field that you want to get rid of, you can Tribute it via Subterror Nemesis Warrior’s effect to Summon Subterror Behemoth Speleogeist, Umastryx or Stygokraken.

If a “Subterror Behemoth” monster is flipped face-up, you can Special Summon Subterror Nemesis Warrior from your Graveyard. Even if you have multiple copies of Subterror Nemesis Warrior in your Graveyard, you can only use this effect once per turn.

Flip Flop Frog

Flip Flop Frog
Flip Flop Frog
WATER Aqua
ATK 500 / DEF 200
Cybernetic Rebellion [R]
Once per turn, you can flip this card into face-down Defense Position. When this card is flipped face-up, you can return monsters your opponent controls to their owners' hand up to the number of face-up "Frog" monsters you control, except "Frog the Jam".

What if I don’t open with Subterror Nemesis Warrior? You can still Summon your “Subterror Behemoth” monsters by Normal Summoning Flip Flop Frog and changing it to face-down Defense Position via their own effects. When a monster you control is flipped face-down, if you control no face-up monsters, you can Special Summon Subterror Behemoth Umastryx, Stygokraken or Speleogeist from your hand.

Your “Subterror Behemoth” monsters have the ability to flip themselves face-down as well, so, if you control one, you can Special Summon another one from your hand. You cannot Special Summon multiple “Subterror Behemoth” monsters at once because their effect has to be activated in response to your monster being flipped face-down

Subterror Final Battle

Subterror Final Battle
Subterror Final Battle
Normal Trap
Blazing Rose [SR]
Activate 1 of these effects, also, after that, Set this card face-down instead of sending it to the Graveyard.
● Change 1 Set "Subterror" monster on the field to face-up Attack or Defense Position.
● Change 1 face-up "Subterror" monster on the field to face-down Defense Position.
● ATK and DEF of 1 "Subterror" monster on the field become equal to its combined original ATK and DEF until the end of this turn.
● This turn, activated effects of "Subterror" cards cannot be negated.

When you activate Subterror Final Battle, you can choose to apply 1 of 4 different effects and then Set it instead of sending it to the Graveyard.

  • You can change 1 Set "Subterror" monster on the field to face-up Attack or Defense Position.

Use this effect to flip your “Subterror Behemoth” monsters and trigger their effects. If your opponent locks one of your “Subterror” monsters in face-down Defense Position with Floodgate Trap Hole, you can use Subterror Final Battle to change it to face-up Attack Position.

  • You can change 1 face-up "Subterror" monster on the field to face-down Defense Position.

You can prevent your opponent from returning one of your “Subterror” monsters to the hand via Legendary Six Samurai - Enishi or from banishing it via Metaphys Daedalus.

  • The ATK and DEF of 1 "Subterror" monster on the field become equal to its combined original ATK and DEF until the end of this turn.

Both Subterror Behemoth Umastryx and Stygokraken definitely lack when it comes to ATK, especially if you compare them to monsters like Blue-Eyes White Dragon and Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon, but, thanks to Subterror Final Battle, you can flip the situation around.

  • This turn, activated effects of "Subterror" cards cannot be negated.

Does this mean my opponent cannot negate the effect of my Subterror Behemoth Umastryx with Red-Eyes Slash Dragon? Unfortunately, Red-Eyes Slash Dragon is able to negate the “activation of the effect” and not “the effect”, so the 4th effect of Subterror Final Battle cannot do anything in this situation.

Additional Notes

  • Ideally, you should shuffle back into the Deck the “Subterror Behemoth” monster you intend to send to the Graveyard and Special Summon via Subterror Nemesis Warrior’s effect.
  • You can still play a competitive Subterror deck thanks to Heavy Starter. Heavy Starter will guarantee a Level 5 or higher monster in your opening hand, which you will be able to Special Summon thanks to cards like Swarm of Locusts, Mahjong Munia Maidens, Guardian Statue and Golem Sentry.

Matchups

Six Samurai Matchups (Favorable)

Legendary Six Samurai - Enishi cannot target and return to the hand a monster if it’s not face-up and your opponent would need three monsters on the field in order to get over a Defense Position Subterror Behemoth Umastryx with Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En.

If one of your “Subterror” monsters is targeted by Legendary Six Samurai - Enishi, you can even activate Subterror Final Battle and flip that monster face-down in order to prevent it from being returned to the hand. Can’t Shi En just negate your Trap Card? Well yes, but actually no. Your opponent attacks your face-down Subterror Behemoth Umastryx, you banish their Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En and now you can activate Subterror Final Battle freely.

Neos Fusion Matchups (Neutral)

If you activate Subterror Nemesis Warrior’s effect during your opponent’s Standby Phase by setting your Toggle Button to ON, your opponent will not be able to Summon Lava Golem. Elemental HERO Brave Neos is not able to get over Subterror Behemoth Umastryx on Summon (2600 ATK with 1 Elemental HERO Neos in the GY) and, as long as your monsters are face-down, Karakuri Ninja mdl 339 "Sazank" will not be an issue either.

Neos Steelswarm is definitely more problematic to deal with. Forbidden Chalice, World Legacy Clash, and Subterror Behemoth Burrowing are interesting cards to implement if this matchup turns out to be the most troublesome.

Blue-Eyes Matchups (Neutral)

If you banish The White Stone of Ancients or Dawn Knight via Subterror Behemoth Umastryx’s effect, your opponent will not be able to Special Summon Blue-Eyes White Dragon or Dragon Spirit of White from the Deck. Snipe Hunter can be an issue on Turn 2 as it can end up enabling an OTK and Dragon Spirit of White can banish your Subterror Final Battle, preventing you from recycling it.

Red-Eyes Fusion Matchups (Favorable)

Red-Eyes Slash Dragon cannot negate Subterror Behemoth Umastryx or Subterror Behemoth Stygokraken’s effect if you have Subterror Nemesis Warrior in your Graveyard and you activate its effect. If you remove Red-Eyes Slash Dragon from the field via Subterror Behemoth Umastryx’s effect, your opponent will not be able to activate Red-Eyes Retro Dragon or Red-Eyes Slash Dragon’s own effect to recover.

Geartown Turbo Matchup (Unfavorable)

Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon (and Ancient Gear Wyvern) will prevent you from activating your monsters’ effects as well as Subterror Final Battle upon attack declaration. Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon, even without Ancient Gear Castle, is able to get over a Defense Position Subterror Behemoth Umastryx and you can’t even target it the turn it was Summoned if Ancient Gear Fortress is active, which means you can’t activate Subterror Final Battle or Enemy Controller before your opponent declares an attack.

Now, your opponent will not always have a way to Summon Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon AND an Ancient Gear Fortress, but it still should be noted that it is not much you can do against this particular combination of cards. If Geartown Turbo rises back in popularity, it might be a good idea to start playing Skull Meister and/or Cosmic Cyclone.

More otk, why not

Pretty sure golem sentry is better than flip flop frog as they have the same effect but golem sentry has higher defense which is useful in some situations

Lol no. Flip flop frog does not target.
This helps get rid of some nasty monsters - Invoked Cocytus or Red eyes slash dragon.
If you do everything right and draw out all the cards you need for combo your opponent will not be able to hit you even once

What's the point having only 1 shadow imprison mirror? Subterror still good in pvp?

It really depends a lot on what you draw with Subterrors in pvp. In general I would say they are outdated, but on a good hand they can compete with almost anything. Unfortunately, they don't have the search or draw power to compete with current meta.

I played Subterrors this month and even reached late KOG, but they are heavily outdated.

Mostly because many decks can nuke your entire field and you cannot recover from it.

I would suggest adding the light imprison mirror as well, since every top tier deck is composed of both light and dark monsters.

worst match up for the newest build is Cydra. Anything else just handled well with this deck.
I <3 Steelswarms
Basicaly we got the better version of desert sunlight. The problem is that you can't really fit proper backrow removal into the deck. The new version you have to take your pawn to fit your CC. You will have better backrow removal but you won't have more flip up options. Also there isn't any good trapmonster version. I write down my own. (trapmonster version is very stable but they are slow :( ).
