"Aroma" (アロマ Aroma) is an archetype largely consisting of Plant monsters that were introduced in Clash of Rebellions. The archetype's monsters all derive their names from tools and various species of flowers, all of which are used to produce and utilize essential oils.

Playing style

"Aromage" and "Aromaseraphy" monsters share two common types of effects: a Continuous Effect that applies while their controller has more LP than the opponent, and a Trigger Effect that activates when their controller gains LP. The Continuous Effect supports Plant monsters and encourage the controller to engage in battle by granting them advantages in that area against the opponent, while the Trigger Effects focus upon increasing utility, partly through field disruption.

"Aromage" Continuous Effect Trigger Effect
Jasmine Allows one additional Normal Summon/Set for a Plant monster. The controller draws a card.
Cananga Reduces the ATK and DEF of the opponent's monsters by 500. Targets and returns a Spell/Trap Card the opponent controls to the hand.
Rosemary The opponent cannot activate monster effects when the controller's Plant monster attacks, until the end of the Damage Step. Targets and changes a face-up monster's battle position.
Bergamot The controller's Plant monsters inflict Piercing Battle Damage. Gains 1000 ATK and DEF until the end of the opponent's next turn.
Angelica Discards itself and targets another "Aroma" monster in the Graveyard to increase LP by the target's ATK. Can be Special Summoned from the Graveyard if you control another "Aroma" monster, but is banished when it leaves the field.
Aromaseraphy Jasmine This card and Plant-Type monsters this card points to cannot be destroyed by battle. Add 1 Plant monster from the Deck to the hand.
Aromaseraphy Rosemary All Plant monsters you control gain 500 ATK and DEF. Target Face-up card has its effects negated for the turn.

The battling aspect that is encouraged by the archetype is also pronounced by its support cards, "Aroma Jar" and "Aroma Garden". "Aroma Jar" is a Flip monster whose Flip effect bestows 500 LP upon the controller during either player's End Phase while it remains face-up. Additionally, its other effect has interactivity with its Flip effect, as it also defends itself from destruction by battle if it was flipped face-up. The archetype's Field Spell Card, "Aroma Garden", grants the controller 500 LP during their turn when they control an "Aroma" monster, while additionally bolstering the ATK and DEF of all of their monsters by 500 until the end of the opponent's next turn (the downside of battling is also covered by the card, which increases the controller's LP by 1000 when an "Aroma" monster they control is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard).

The deck also contains 2 Continuous Trap Cards which further assist the controller by turning the LP they gained into a utilizable asset. "Dried Winds" serves as a means to put pressure on the opponent by having the controller target and destroy a monster the opponent controls, each time they gain LP. The card further takes advantage of its controller's tendency to amass mass amounts of LP by allowing them to pay LP equal to the difference between their LP and their opponent's, to destroy monsters with equal or less ATK than the amount of LP paid, provided the controller has at least 3000 more LP than the opponent. "Humid Winds" provides the Deck with much needed speed, allowing the controller to search out "Aroma" monsters from their Deck at the cost of 1000 LP, a small sum to pay for the controller. If the controller should find themselves disadvantaged in LP count compared to their opponent, the card further helps them make up the deficit, providing a steady stream of 500 LP per turn until the deficit is bridged. Both of these Trap Cards are best protected by "Imperial Custom".

The archetype's efficacy can be enhanced with the use of cards that increase the LP of the controller. Such cards should preferably do so either by a significant margin or with control over when they activate by the player, such as with "Poison of the Old Man" and "Aegis of Gaia", to keep the Continuous Effects of the "Aroma" monsters active. As several of the "Aroma" monsters, except "Bergamot", have low ATK and DEF and still emphasize battling, cards such as "Juragedo" and "Nutrient Z" keep your LP safe while fulfilling the archetype's mandate of increasing your LP and maintaining a high LP count. Alternatively, you can use "Waboku" to protect your LP and your monsters.

The "Aroma" archetype also performs well with disabling and preventative cards, such as "Anti-Spell Fragrance" to compliment the Spell/Trap bouncing effect of "Aromage Cananga", "Lose 1 Turn" and "Cactus Bouncer" to compliment the extra Normal Summon effect of "Aromage Jasmine", and "Magic Planter" and "Booby Trap E" to make use of the many Continuous Trap Cards that the deck utilizes, such as "Humid Winds", "Dried Winds", and the aforementioned Lose 1 Turn and Anti-Spell Fragrance.

Weaknesses

Given that the archetype focuses on gaining LP, it is extremely vulnerable to cards such as "Bad Reaction to Simochi" and "Darklord Nurse Reficule", which subvert LP gaining effects and instead damages you for the same amount. "Asleep at the Switch" presents the archetype with another weakness, as it can be used to destroy "Aroma" monsters when their controller gains LP, an incredibly common occurrence for the Deck.
