CatchMamemon: from Gatcha to Catcha

Are you excited with BT-08 New Hero?

With the reveal of CatchMamemon, I told myself that I am going to have some fun with a Mamemon deck this time! 

CatchMamemon, despite his oddity, has a rather unique effect which allows you to finally control your top-deck draws, which was previously limited only to the black tamer Izzy Izumi. 

Could this simple common card revive some severely underplayed SR cards such as CresGarurumon and Mamemon?

[BT8-065] CatchMamemon
Effect: [When Digivolving] Return up to 4 Digimon cards with [Mamemon] in their name from your hand or trash to the top of your deck in any order. If this effect returns 3 or more cards, 1 of your opponent’s Digimon gets [De-digivolve 1].
 

The return of CresGarurumon?

By digivolving the LV4 Digimon into CatchMamemon I can trigger its [When Digivolving] effect to return up to 4 cards with [Mamemon] to the top of my deck. We then digivolve CatchMamemon into [BT3-073] CresGarurumon and by triggering his [When Digivolving] effect I will be able to guarantee playing a LV5 Mamemon for free (as long as my opponent has at least 1 Digimon in play). 

Since CatchMamemon's effect can return up to 4 [Mamemon] cards to top of the deck, the first Mamemon on top of the deck will always be bonus-drawn (when digivolving into Cresgarurumon) hence the only free-playing candidates are the second Mamemons onwards. We will be able to control which Mamemon goes back to hand and which will be played. 

As of now, there are 2 LV5 Mamemons that are great candidates to return to hand (due to having a [When Digivolved] effect), and 2 other that are great to play directly. The BT3 MetalMamemon and BT8 CatchMamemon can be recycled to hand, while the BT6 Mamemon and BigMamemon can be great candidates for Cresgarurumon's free play.

Other Supporting Cards?

Due to the sheer number of recyclable LV5 Mamemons, it might be viable to play this deck with heavy LV4s. The LV4 Digimon Nanimon (security Digimon, 3 cost to play) or Mekanorimon (blocker, 4 cost to play) may be great candidates. 

Omegamon Zwart may also be useful in this deck, not only to prepare more LV4 foundations for all those recycled LV5s in hand, but also to return Cresgarurumon to hand.  

We are still very early into the BT-08 leaks and reveals, so it may be too early to think about this as a deck or even its base color. But I can't help thinking about a purple base with Eyesmon for draw power (yes i know Eyesmon cannot digivolve into Mamemon lolx). 
 

BanchoMamemon

BanchoMamemon is revealed on 3rd Nov, which is a totally powerful support for Mamemon deck.

[BT8-068] Banchomamemon
Effect 1: [When Digivolving] Reveal the top 3 cards of your deck. For each of your opponent’s Digimon, you may play a card with [Mamemon] in their name and has a play cost of 10 or lower without paying its cost. Trash the remaining cards.
Effect 2: [Both Turns] When you have another Digimon with [Mamemon] in it’s name in play, this Digimon gets [SecurityAttack+1]
 
Compared to Cresgarurumon, BanchoMamemon is cheaper to digivolve and can gain "Security Attack +1" if there is a [Mamemon] is played in the turn. While there is possibly 1 or more Mamemon can be played from Banchomamemon's digivolving effect (depends on number of Digimon the opponent has in the battle), ONLY 1 Mamemon is played from Cresgarurumon's "when digivolving" effect.

  1. Hey there for the post CatchMamemon: from Gatcha to Catcha

    Compared to Cresgarurumon, BanchoMamemon is cheaper to digivolve and can gain “Security Attack +1” if there is a [Mamemon] is played in the turn. While there is possibly 1 or more Mamemon can be played from Cressgaruru’s digivolving effect (depends on number of Digimon the opponent has in the battle), ONLY 1 Mamemon is played from BanchoMamemon’s “when digivolving” effect.

    Should be the opposite right? Banchomamemon can potentially call up to 3 and cresgarurumon max calls 1?
