How to Use

Deep Sea Diva

  • If you have a Level 3 monster in your hand (Atlantean Marksman, Mermail Abysslinde or Mermail Abyssgunde), Normal Summon Deep Sea Diva and use its effect to Special Summon Atlantean Heavy Infantry from your Deck. Now activate your Skill and increase the Level of Deep Sea Diva or Heavy Infantry by 3 and Synchro Summon Black Rose Dragon or Gungnir, Dragon of the Ice Barrier.
  • If you have a Level 2 monster in your hand (Atlantean Heavy Infantry or another Deep Sea Diva), Normal Summon Deep Sea Diva and use its effect to Special Summon Atlantean Marksman from your Deck. Now activate your Skill and increase the Level of Deep Sea Diva or Marksman by 2 and Synchro Summon Black Rose Dragon or Gungnir.

Turns out being able to wipe the board on Turn 2 with a single card is pretty good. Aside from the monster in your hand for Level Augmentation, all you need to Summon a Level 7 Synchro is Deep Sea Diva. That’s definitely a pretty big step up from Summoning Armades, Keeper of Boundaries using Junk Synchron. Keep in mind that you can only use your Skill once.

Mermail Abysslinde & Abyss-sphere

Use Abyss-sphere to Special Summon Mermail Abysslinde. If Abyss-sphere leaves the field, Abysslinde will be destroyed and it will allow you to Special Summon a “Mermail” monster from your Deck. Even if nothing happens to Abyss-sphere, during the next End Phase of your opponent’s turn after its activation, the Continuous Trap will destroy itself. Keep in mind that, if your opponent responds to the activation of Abyss-sphere by activating Cosmic Cyclone, banishing the Continuous Trap, you don’t get to Special Summon any monster.

You can use Mermail Abysslinde’s effect to Special Summon Mermail Abysspike and then use Abysspike’s effect to add a Level 3 WATER monster from your Deck to your hand.
If you activate Abysspike’s effect by discarding Atlantean Marksman, you will get to the target and destroy a face-up card your opponent controls.

Keep in mind that, if you target a face-up “Subterror” monster and your opponent response by activating Subterror Final Battle and changing that monster to face-down Defense Position, the monster will not be destroyed because it’s not a suitable target anymore.

  • If you activate Abysspike’s effect by discarding Atlantean Heavy Infantry, you will get to the target and destroy a face-down card your opponent controls.

Keep in mind that, if you target a face-down Spell/Trap Card and your opponent activates it in response, the card will not be destroyed because it’s not a suitable target anymore.

  • If you activate Abysspike’s effect by discarding Mermail Abyssgunde, it will allow you to target a “Mermail” monster in your Graveyard, except Mermail Abyssgunde, and Special Summon it.

You can just Normal Summon Mermail Abysspike, discard Abyssgunde, Special Summon Mermail Abyssmegalo from your Graveyard and then utilize Abysspike to activate its effect. If you want the monster Special Summoned by Abyss-sphere to stay on the field, you can activate it during your opponent’s End Phase.

You could also use the Continuous Trap to Special Summon Mermail Abyssmegalo or Abyssteus, but you wouldn’t get much value out of them since even Dragon Spirit of White and Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En are able to get over them without Beatdown! or The Tie that Binds.

Mermail Abyssmegalo & Mermail Abyssteus

You can Special Summon Mermail Abyssmegalo from your hand by discarding two WATER monsters. By discarding Atlantean Marksman, Heavy Infantry or Mermail Abyssgunde, you can get back some value from the resources you’ve invested to Summon Abyssmegalo.

When it’s Special Summoned by its own effect, Mermail Abyssmegalo allows you to add an “Abyss-” Spell/Trap Card from your Deck to your hand. You can use Abyssmegalo’s effect to search Abyss-sphere, which I’ve already talked about.

Unlike Abyssmegalo, Abyssteus requires you to discard only one WATER monster in order to be Summoned and, to make it even more cost-efficient, it also allows you to add a Level 4 or lower “Mermail” monster from your Deck to your hand when it’s Summoned this way.

This Skill notably increases the value of Deep Sea Diva, turning it into pretty much any Synchro Monster in your Extra Deck.

Weaknesses

  • If you’re going 2nd, your opponent can prevent you from Synchro Summoning by flipping your monsters face-down (Floodgate Trap Hole and Paleozoic Canadia), destroying them (Treacherous Trap Hole) or banishing them (Spellbook of Fate and Subterror Behemoth Umastryx). On the bright side, if your opponent doesn’t know you can go into Black Rose Dragon using your Skill, they might not try to stop you, which means you will get to wipe their board.
  • Mermails are still fragile on the play and can get OTKed by aggressive decks. Even if you open with Abysslinde or Abyss-sphere, you are not guaranteed to survive until your next turn.

Salvage is also incredibly useful in this deck.
Diva into pikeman to syncro whatever. Retrieve the two via salvage to then go into Megalo or Abyssteus.
OK
This deck made it to the TOP at the last Meta Weekly. Wow, it's definitely strong and competitive, I'm pretty sure it's tiered.

I got ammonite with 300 gems dude, but the 2nd one took me 4000 T__T

But well, 4300 gems for two UR cards is not bad at all.

Deep Sea five is awesome, this deck is definitely competitive but people should only play 2 Abyssmegalo. Otherwise they will brick

After seeing how it works... not impressed, sorry. Not tier 1 material. Weak to Red-Eyes, Metaphys, AG and I’d even say Spellbooks as they don’t carry any interruption.

red eyes is ez cuz (pike, teus, megalo) + infantry= makes red eyes miss timming, spellbook is hard counter though. Metaphys if you can otk then there's no problem. AG is an even matchup or slightly in AG's favor. The deck lacked a first turn play but now thanks to abysslinde and sphere now it has a one and it can run tth so that's good.

I would love to make a Budget Version, but they decided to make Deep Sea Diva a UR.

Im gonna wait till they released another structure deck. Even though its p2w its still cheaper and have a potential to be splashable onto other decks.

I got Diva and Abyssteus within 50 packs then immediately reset the box. I don't care about Cyber Dragon, there is a reason why Diva is currently still limited in the TCG

I just saw YTDan stream today opening the packs and guess what, he pulls the Deep Sea Diva on the last pack of the box, THE LAST PACK of the box. Insane man

deep sea diva has always been the last UR/Sr left in the box for me. not the last pack but in the last 10 packs.
