Quick overview of the deck. Rabbit gets your Kabazauls and your Sabersaurus. Overlay them into either Laggia or Dolkka. Once Rabbit is in your banished zone, use Tour guide to summon Leviair and detach to summon Rabbit back. Use that rabbit's effect to get 2 Sabersaurus.

At this point, you would have a Laggia on your field from the last turn, A Leviair and 2 Sabersaurus. If your opponent's field is clear, you can swing for exactly 8000 damage. If you don't, then you can overlay into another laggia and swing for around 4000.

Gold Sarcophagus allows you to banish a rabbit from your deck. Then you can summon Tour guide and end your turn with a Laggia and a Leviair, with one more material left on the sea dragon to summon another Laggia or Dolkka next turn.

Aside from that, the deck has general staple cards and a Grand mole to deal with cards that the deck cant get over (Stardust, Scrap dragon Etc).

His side deck consists of mainly stun cards. Fossil Dyna, now easily available to everyone, can slow down your opponent to a halt. That alongside cards like Fiendish chain can beat the Agent matchup (If they go first) since Kristya hits the deck pretty hard.

Dimensional fissure is a good side for this deck since the materials that are detached from an xyz monster are sent to the graveyard regardless, making monster reborn less of a dead draw. He could have sided Vanity's Emptiness to shut down the opponent's special summon. Either he didn't like it or he just didn't think about it.

Overall, the deck is incredibly powerful and while you sometimes open bad with it, it's a great deck to take to a large tournament since it's overall douchery is a pain for any deck.

Personally, I blame Tour Guide (and partially Leviair). Makes the deck go from good to broken.
