Due to its effect of halving the attacking monster’s ATK and DEF when it is being attacked, it requires more than 5600 ATK to destroy this monster in a head to head combat, and more than 2000 ATK to destroy it when it is in defense mode. This can be further improved by using Mirror Wall or Wall of Disruption.
Filling your Graveyard
Since Alpha, Beta and Gamma the Magnet Warriors are Rock-type Normal monsters, you can combo with Painful Decision to quickly fill out your graveyard and draw another one of the same name from your deck. Needlebug Nest can quickly mill your deck by sending 5 cards from your top deck to the graveyard, which has a high chance of sending Rock-type monsters to the graveyard as cost to use Gaia Plate the Earth Giant.
These cards further supports Gaia Plate the Earth Giant on the field. When your monster’s position changes, Attack the Moon! Effect will trigger, allowing you to destroy 1 Spell/Trap card on your opponent’s field. Magnet Force protects all your Rock-type monsters from monster effects during the turn it was activated.
You can return your banished Rock-type monsters to the field in face-down defense mode, by using Premature Return, or you can Special Summon banished Rock-type monster by using Release from Stone. This can be a recycling method to ensure your field presence.
