"Nordic Beast", known as "Polar Star Beast" (
The "Nordic Beasts" are connected to the Norse Mythology God "Thor". The two tokens Summoned by "Tanngrisnir" are "Tanngnjóstr" and "Tanngrisnir" himself; those beasts are the two goats that pull Thor's chariot. "Gullfaxi" is a sacred horse in Norse Mythology ; Thor gave it to his son Magni as a reward for helping him in a fight against the Giants. "Garm" is a dog associated to Ragnarok, and it guards the Underworld.

The focus of a "Nordic Beasts" Deck is to Synchro Summon its best monster, "Thor, Lord of the Aesir". As such, the Deck focuses on quickly Summoning a combination of non-Tuner monsters so that their combined Levels equal 6, then Summoning "Guldfaxe of the Nordic Beasts" to Synchro Summon. As such, a large amount of Level 3 Monsters that can easily be Special Summoned are used, such as "Monoceros". In addition, a combination of Level 4 and Level 2 monsters can be used.
Since the "Nordic Beasts" are Beasts, other Beast support is recommended, such as "Super-Nimble Mega Hamster", which can search most of the "Nordic Beasts" and "Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter" ("Super-Nimble Mega Hamster" and "Ryko" have a combined Level of 6). "Giant Rat" can also be used to search for "Nordic Beasts", as most of the "Nordic Beasts" are also EARTH. "Summoner Monk" can search "Guldfaxe".
If only Beast monsters are used, "Naturia Pineapple" can be used as a Level 2 monster that quickly can be Summoned to the field, or "Solidarity" to boost your monsters' ATK, except for "Thor". However, these two cards cannot be used together.
