Ancient forest

i still remember how this deck hypes up all the gladiator beast players when it was first released during the rescue cat + spy era, aka AKB time.


now that gladiator beast is back, with the introduction of lanista and with a new playing style fusing icaurs attack and more taps/magic to protect the gladiators beast. i am still excited at the thought of ancient gladiator beast.








Effect:When you activate this card, change any Defense Position monster(s) to face-up Attack Position. Flip Effects are not activated at this time. If a monster attacks, destroy it at the end of that turn's Battle Phase.




i still remember seeing one of the top japan GB decks running 2 copies of gladiator's beast battle manica, which protects the gladiator beasts from being destroyed by battle. think about it this way, with these 2 cards around, you can savely get rid of your opponent's monster with ancient forest, though at the expense of some life points. and you dont have to tag out a murmillo just to destroy their monster, you can tag something out more useful (according to situation) like laquari swinging for greater damage next turn etc.


whats more, in order to prevent the destruction of their own monsters. opponent is more likely to waste their cyclones just to get rid of this card, which means that your backrow is facing 1 lesser destruction card.

hero beat may have to waste their gemini spark just to destroy it.


against gravekeeper's you can also destroy their copy of necrovalley by playing this card.


feels like building a deck involving this concept. looks rather interesting.LOL. 


only thing is that it might be rather slow and waste 3 precious slots for a gladiator beast deck which could have been used to put some other better cards. because drawing multiple copies of this card isnt fun at all.


hmm...
