Also known as Monster Mash, Monster Surge Decks can vary greatly from duelist to duelist, but they are all based around the principle of filling the deck with monsters and up to 3 spell or traps. In doing this, a player is almost guaranteed to draw a monster to attack with, but more importantly certain monster effects become much more reliable. Some key cards include "Gallis the Star Beast" and "Magical Merchant", but "Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter" also appears to be a frequent choice with this deck type. Since cards such as "Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter" and "Quickdraw Synchron" focus on sending cards to the graveyard, it would be beneficial to have cards with effects that activate in the graveyard.
With the release of the Superheavy Samurai archetype with cards like Superheavy Samurai Warlord Susanowo, a deck based around the Superheavy Samurai archetype can be a viable strategy, as some of their support cards require a graveyard free of Spells and Traps, as well as Susanowo being able to use your opponent's Spells and Traps, covering some of the weaknesses of this deck type.
