The Amazoness archetype received some amazing support lately with the addition of Amazoness Onslaught, Amazoness Queen and Amazoness Princess, making this deck actually very viable and consistent on the PvP ladder.
If Amazoness do get new support that would be included in this deck we will revisit this guide when the time comes.
Now that we have access to Amazoness Princess, these cards have actually become much better. If you already have access to Amazoness Onslaught, you could use Princess’ her effect to search one of these cards instead.
Amazoness Willpower is included instead of another copy of Powerful Rebirth because this card can also bring back Amazoness Queen from the graveyard, also it’s second effect that obligates your Amazoness monster to attack each battle phase isn’t as awful now when paired up with Amazoness Queen.
The main goal of this deck is to start out with Amazoness onslaught and start banishing your opponent’s monsters with its effect, that’s why you use Restart or Balance to raise that consistency.
Amazoness Onslaught’s effect will activate after the damage calculations, even if your monster was destroyed by battle, which means the way this card is countered is with cards like Super Rush Headlong. This card’s effect activates even if it was your opponent who attacked, so if you don’t have enough life points you can put your monsters in defense and still banish your opponent’s monsters.
This card also has two other effects. The first one being that you can special summon 1 Amazoness monster during your battle phase and it will gain 500 atk this turn if you do so. This means that if you have this card on the field, and an Amazoness monster in your hand, it’s best to not normal summon during your main phase, but rather go to your battle phase and then special summon it for that attack increase. You can also use this effect during your opponent’s battle phase, this can be very useful for survival. Keep in mind however that this effect can not be activated during the damage step, so if your opponent attacks and you want to special summon an Amazoness monster you need to summon it during the battle step.
Its third and last effect is that when this card you control is destroyed, you can special summon an Amazoness monster from your graveyard. So even if your opponent gets rid of this card , you get some last use out of it.
This card is now even better because you can also special summon Amazoness Queen with it (Onslaught does not have a level restriction).
This is the new level up reward from Mai. This is the only monster with a level higher than 4 in this deck, which doesn’t pose a problem since she can be special summoned from the hand with Amazoness Onslaught, or special summoned from the deck thanks to Amazoness Princess. She has an amazing effect that makes all your Amazoness monsters invincible in battle (but they can still be destroyed through effects like Sylvan Marshalleaf).
A great way to make your board is to summon Amazoness Princess at the start to search out Amazoness Onslaught, and when you attack a monster with a higher attack (while Amazoness Onslaught is activated) you can discard a card to special summon Queen in defense position, so your Princess won’t be destroyed, but their monster will be banished.
Because your monsters can’t be destroyed by battle you do run the risk of your opponent attacking the same weak monster over and over (like Baby Tiger) to remove all your life points, so be careful with what you decide to put in attack position.
Her effect also protects herself from being destroyed in battle.
This card alone will probably be able to put this deck on the tier list. When she is summoned you can add an Amazoness spell or trap from your deck to your hand, most of the time you’ll pick up Amazoness Onslaught, however if you already have one in the hand or on the field you might want to pick up an Amazoness Heirloom or Amazoness Willpower.
Her second effect allows you to summon 1 Amazoness monster from your deck in defense position whenever she attacks, you do need to discard one card to activate this effect. This is a great way to search out your only copies of Amazoness Queen or Baby Tiger. You’ll probably first want to search Amazoness Queen, but if you already have her, Baby Tiger is a great way to gain card advantage as well since he keeps coming back from the Graveyard.
We settled on these two ladies for our main attackers.
If you do not have 3 copies of Amazoness Paladin you could replace her with Amazoness Swordswoman or Amazoness Tiger.
Amazoness Paladin is here for her high attack, she will always at least have 1800 attack, but she can get up to 2000 maximum which gets over the most popular level 4 drops.
The only way you’ll get use out of Amazoness Sage’s effect is if she is paired up with Amazoness Queen, if she can attack directly, or if you used Windstorm/Curse of Anubis and attack a monster in defense position because in most situations her attack will be lower than all other level 4 monsters (even the level 4 destiny Heroes have more attack).
More copies of Amazoness Paladin can be picked up with the UR tickets you get from doing PvP.
Other good spells/traps to use with this deck would be cards like Ultimate Providence/Forbidden Chalice, mostly to negate the effect of combo starters, but because you run a lot of traps, Ultimate Providence can be used to negate an opponent’s trap.
Amazoness Baby Tiger
|This card can be special summoned from your hand or graveyard whenever you summon an Amazoness monster. You can bring this card back over and over again and crash it into your opponent’s monsters (while Onslaught is on the field) to gain card advantage, and use your bigger Amazoness monsters to attack your opponent directly. This card does have a very low attack, so you’ll have to be careful with your life points if you attack with this monster, this is why Holy Guard could be a great choice as a skill.|
Amazoness Swords Woman
|Can be devastating when paired with Amazoness Queen since she won’t be able to die in battle and she’ll continue to do damage to your opponent.|
|This card kind of is a weaker version of Amazoness Swordswoman, because both make you not take any battle damage, however Swordswoman inflicts that damage on your opponent.|
|Although it might be situation most times, this card can come in clutch. Imagine having an Amazoness monster with Onslaught on the field, and you have Impenetrable Attack available, you could force your opponent to attack with all monsters meaning they would all be banished.|
|Has the same purpose as Impenetrable Attack, but has additional synergy with Amazoness Swordswoman.|
|Protects your monster from being destroyed by battle giving you more utility out of Amazoness Onslaught. Can also negate battle damage for a whole battle phase in desperate situations.|
