Weeds always grow back

So since Konami butchered plant synchro with the new ban list, I decided to cry like a little girl create a new type of plant deck (took me a little longer than expected to make the deck consistent enough). 

Ctrl+C Exceed:
This is a reactive control focused deck that waits for your opponents plays, steals their monsters (with MotRMind Control & Big Eye) and uses them for XYZing/Synchroing or as beatstiks. 

3x Fallen Angel of Roses
3x Cherry Inmato
3x Verz Mandrago
2x Copy Plant
1x Gigaplant
1x Lonefire Blossom
1x Sangan
1x Violet Witch
1x Gorz the Emissary of Darkness
2x Effect Veiler
2x Maxx "C"

Fallen Angel of Roses & Copy Plant are the power cards of the deck, they give you access to a wide variety extra deck cards. While Verz Mandrago and Cherry Inmato serve as combo enablers for the deck.

Notable play: 
Special Summon* Verz Mandrago & return to hand to SS* Fallen Angel of Roses, normal summon Copy Plant, use its effect and XYZ into a Rank 7 or SS a level 8 Synchro (withouth using Copy Plants effect). 
You can also preform this play with Lonefire Blossom instead of Copy Plant by tributing Verz Mandrago for Lonefires effect.

Mark of the Rose x3
Miracle Fertelizer  x2
Mystical Space Typhoon x2
Heavy Storm x1
Dark Hole x1
Allure of Darkness x1
Monster Reborn x1
Foolish Burial x1
Mind Control x1
Book of Moon x1

Mark of the Rose is prety much a legal version Snatch Steal which has become even stronger with the introduction of XYZs.
Because the way XYZ summons are ruled, Miracle Fertelizer stays on the field if the summoned monster is used as a XYZ material and with Verz Mandrago one can bypass the "no normal summon" drawback.

Notable play:
Steal your opponents  Number 39: Utopia with either Mind Control or Mark of the Rose and turn it into your Number C39: Utopia Ray.

2x Torrential Tribute
2x Solemn Warning
1x Solemn Judgment
1x Mirror Force

Because both Effect Veiler & Maxx "C" are already used and due to deck space, the trap line up is keept minimal with the only notable inclusion being the newly semi-limited Torrentail Tribute.

Notable play:
One can negate Macro Cosmos with Solemn Warning because its effect includes Special Summoning.

Ally of Justice Catastor x1
Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier x1
Black Rose Dragon x1
Stardust Dragon x1
Scrap Dragon x1
Gachi Gachi Gantetsu x1
Wind-Up Zenmaines x1
Number 39: Utopia x2
Number C39: Utopia Ray x1
Photon Streak Bouncer x1
The Sacred Ptolemys M7 x1
Number 11: Big Eye x2
Ennead, the Holy Marked Divine Dragon x1

The Rank 6 XYZs are usaly summoned by using Gigaplant Ennead is summoned with your opponents monsters like 
Elemental Hero Absolute Zero
While Black Rose Dragon is the least summoned monster from the extra deck, its 2nd effect can in ocassion be as devastating as its 1st.

Notable cards not included in the deck:
  • Dark Armed Dragon -> the deck runs quite a few darks but due to its speed this card is dead in your hand more often than not. A faster verzion of this deck could run it (either a turbo or a mill variant).
  • Pot of Avarice -> same as Dark Armed Dragon.
  • Blackwing - Zephyros the Elite -> combos with Miracle Fertelizer.
  • Mist Wurm -> can replace one of the less used extra deck cards.
  • Thunderclap Knight - Gaia Dragoon -> is quite devastating with Mark of the Rose if your opponents deck focuses on Rank 5 or 6 XYZs.
