Why is Macro Rabbit so good?

It's crossed my mind recently, and I thought it would be a good idea to talk about my feelings about why the deck has become really popular recently.

The most important thing when it comes to a YCS, is being able to have complete dominance over as many decks as possible. If your deck is only good against 6 other decks in the entire game, but those 6 decks are the only decks that will be present at that YCS, then your deck is suited to beat them.

That's exactly what Macro Rabbit is. Macro Cosmos is really good against Mermails, Dark World, Inzektors (since they need to mill to get their pieces) and if you can get it set up quickly, Agents too.

But Macro Cosmos means that your Rabbit plays are unhindered. Your opponent must have a set out to deal with it. If they Torrential, then Rabbit will get banished, ready to be summoned back by Leviair. It's basically saying "I just got shat on by an Elephant with Diarrheoa, but at least it's a sunny day today. Woohoo!"

More importantly, it means you can't get Veilered or Maxx "C"d when you drop your Rabbit. You can be on the constant aggressive without needing to worry. It also means that you won't need to choose between Laggia and Dolkka since choosing Laggia while Macro is up is by far superior than choosing Dolkka in that situation.

Of course, a successful deck needs other plays than the one it's built to do. Stuff like Jurrac Guaiba is still putting in work against Wind-Ups, Inzektors and other decks.

Until next time, TheTCGLover out!
