WTF? Birds??? NO!! GOD BIRD ATTACK!!
I dunno how many of you have realised it yet, but Gladial Beast Equeste is a god-damned wing beast!!!!?? How can that be, he looks like a beast-warrior, or a beast, or warrior =.=
So now with GB equeste as a bird, GB has gotten their new toy: that annoying God Bird Attack. =.=
Running 3 Equestes in a deck with 1 bestiari, and some teched D.D crow, and possibly 1 Gale the whirlwind could come up with an insane crazy GB variant that might dominate the meta. Serious. God Bird Attack is too strong. Look At Blackwings as proof.
Black Wings is like the swarming deck, imagine GB as an in-depth controller with more new toys as God Bird Attack and Ancient Forest. Sounds good? Take a look.

Looks good? It should. God Bird Attack is for you to have fun with, and 3 Equeste helps to do so. As a matter of fact, the extra Darius and the other equeste helps you to recycle your GBs around.
The tech that I would like to mention is one that Chris Bowling decided on a pretty long time ago. He chose to run GB respite. So did I here, but only at 1 copy although the deck has quite alot of monsters.
What perked me up here is the usage of Ancient Forest. Forest is an amazing control card that you can use to the GB's advantage. Trust me. D.D Eatos is gonna have a damn hard time against this deck. Blackwings are gonna have a hard time against him too. I mean chaining of God Bird Attacks are a sight to behold!
Of course, Ancient Fairy Dragon plays a big role in destroying Forest. The good thing is that most OCG players do not run AFD in their extra decks so they will have trouble to kill it. For you, if you wish to suddenly attack with a heraklinos or something that can't be tagged out, just synchro out a AFD and destroy your own Forest so you can add another from the deck to your hand. Simple.
I only ran 2 waboku(s) because its not really needed with 2 Forest already and the extra God bird Attack shit.
This deck has a high utility of summoning GBs in the form of Summoner Monk. I ran Indomitble GB because it can help to recycle GB which is very good but then the real upside comes as its also recylable.
As long as there are GB in the graveyard, you can return it to your hand to be ditched for Monk's effect.
*Mnk becomes more than a reinforcement of the army.
*He bcomes a special summoner of Laquari to be contacted into Hera.
* calls Bestiari to contact a Gyzarus.
Another upside is that if the GB you wish to tag out is in your grave, its easy to return to the deck for Summoner Monk because Indomitable GB returns the GBs back to your deck. This is pure synergy baby.
* Calls an equeste so that you can do "GOD BIRD ATTACK!)
Sometimes that extra 500 given by Indomitable Gladial Beast is just so useful. Hahaha. My match with Michael Yap comes into mind.
The Crow teched in there is mainly to disrupt your opponent's graveyard self touchingness and also to do God Bird Attack. Most of the time, if Monk and Cat are used up, Sangan should be used to search Crow and not Slave Tiger.
I did not run Retiatri as he is too small, and a bad card to find in the opening hand or when you topdeck. His effect is quite useful but not so as the self touching combo(s) done to call out lots of Synchros will be thwarted by Ancient Forest. "WHATT??" You got Stardust and Brionac??? *flips GB Chariot* or *chains God Bird Attack* Once again, this is pure synergy.
This deck is not scared of Skill Drain mainly of God Bird Attack. Thank god, it is not recyclable. Why is it not scared of Drain? Make a successful attack and tag in your GB to call out one of the Birds (*note : you can still tag out a GB but not have its effect. This is because the GB has already left the field so you can do it lah. Same case as RaiOh or Doom Calibur Knight) Of course, Royal Oppression is a different story.
I dunno why the hell Im introducing this deck to you guys cause personally its my wort nightmare, and to see it modified to be used widespread makes me feel like shitting. Now, I hope God Bird Attack gets limited. Of course, God Bird attack's worst enemy is Starlight Road (who always appears in my starting hand no matter what. Yay for god luck!!)
Thats all for today. and on a side note, the D.D Eatos deck maining Parallel World is TOO INCONSISTENT. Trust me and take it from someone who spent the whole of last night testing it out. You think its so good? You open with 3 Gemini Sparks and 3 Geminis ah and you will scream. In short, i support Baha's motion that PWF can only be a mere tech but not a main strategy in the control build. In short, run 1, not 2, not 3, and this time 1 is better than 2.
