How to Side Against Rabbit Lagia

Lately Rabbit Lagia has been topping alot and showing its potential everywhere here and there.

I was discussing with Andrew the other day and we both dont really know how to side against Lagia effectively.

So, after giving some thought, i decided to post about this.

Usually Rabbit Lagia will have a high percentage of winning once they open first with a rabbit. A whole lot of backrow plus spamming Macro Cosmos/Dimension Fissure isn't funny too because they lock out alot of options.

So, how to side vs them?

1) Chain Disappearance- obvious. Successfully resolving it vs Rabbit is more or less game over. Unless they suddenly resolve a Jurrac Guaiba effect and xyz a Lagia.

2) Effect Veiler- This is for when they go first. You cant stop them xyz-ing a Lagia with no backrow so Veiler works well. Agents have it better since they have Herald as well.

3) Spirit Reaper- I just realised how good this card was against Rabbit Lagia. Lagia cant get over shit over Reaper and then Jurac Guaiba cant special summon itself either because it cant destroy Reaper so this card is actually really good for you to stall and draw out your options. In the Rabbit Lagia matchup, this card is gold. I dont know, but i will probably go side 2 or something.

4) Kuribolt- This one is really a troll option. People everywhere are saying Kuribolt summon waste Lagia so i dont know if i will go to all that trouble to side Kuribolt just to kill Rabbit Lagia as side deck space is precious.

Personally, i dont think Lagia is that scary and hard to play around against, but when they back it up with Macro Cosmos/ DD Fissure, thats just cruel. Gonna be hard for Junk Dopple to topple that Fissure/ Cosmos with a walking Solemn Judgment, and another Solemn waiting face down.

Haven't had the chance to explore other decks. Still liking Doppel cos the number of Doppel players have decreased and i like using decks that less people use :3

Anyhow, for anyone who has any other ideas, please share in the comments box so i dont get raped by Rabbit Lagia next time. Thank you!

Penguin soldier? Seems plenty troll. Maybe divine wraith just to make sure that they're gone?

BannanaVoid said...

Divine wraith seems good, they can't negate that with Laigga and its a solid turn two option to control the duel.

If u want a card that stops rabbit laggia u can try to use imperial iron wall this will stop rabbit from using it's effect b/c it has to banish itself to resolve. If u don't like that idea u could try siding in summon limit for decks that don't summon more then 2 times.

Volcanic Queen. Kills krystia, ragia, and other boss monsters provided u didnt get killed by them the previous turn.

Spirit Reaper will die to forbidden lance (many Rabbit Laggia builds use it).

I liked the idea of using Divine Wrath (i run fableds, discard is good).

What i usually do is hit the vanillas with bottomless or chaining maxx "C" to Rabbit eff.

Disigma cant kill it, only can suck attack position monster

mike said...

@ bananavoid- yeah urmm wrath is decent.

@ shadowclaw- imperial iron wall seems word cos it takes out macro or dd fissure too. pray that they get bad hand when they start first =D

@ Ting Jun- thanks, good idea :)

@ stanislaw- do you happen to be stanislaus law ? sorry just someone i know.

@ anon- editted

Snowman Eater is good against Ragia in the OCG. It destroys Ragia without being Guaiba fodder.
However, in the TCG, we have Dolka, so Snowman isn't that effective here.

Stanislaw said...

@mike - nope, just Stanislaw (It's my surname) xD

lol

You didn't mention Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter. That is pretty much the best idea I came up with. It kills those fucking dinosaurs (well, not Evolzar Dollka) and Dimensional Fissure.

Setting Ryko?

Saikon said...

Comeback for LJM and DDWL!

But it is much harder for TCG players, since we still have monster ignition priority, meaning Effect Veiler and Chain Disappearance doesn't do anything..
and even if you happen to have Gorz or something they might follow it up with Dolkka, so they can negate effects as wel...

mike said...

@ reuniclus + saikon- yeah. sad about dokka. i guess divine wrath for you guys.

@ stan- cool surname.

@ anon x2- yeah. forgot that. my mind was referring to my own deck (although it was supposed to be general) and i already had rykos mained...

LGQ said...

snowman, volcanic queen and ryko would be your best sides currently I think.

Sided them in last weekend, but met no Laggia :(

MG Admin said...

@Ting Jun : Volcanic Queen kills kristya?

I love Eletric Virus, it's like Puppet in the last format.
Also, you can use it against Karakuri.

LGQ said...

but the problem with Rabbit Laggia deck is Fissure and Cosmos, Laggia is just the icing
