ETCO's finally here, and while everyone's focused on big cards like Girsu, the Orcust Mekk-Knight and Accesscode Talker, Union Driver's flying a bit under the radar. In today's video, Sam 'union'izes with ABCs, and shows you how just one card in hand can make an unbeatable field.

Union monsters got a few upgrades in recent releases, including a great spell Unauthorized Reactivation. What really makes the deck shine is its ability to recur cards from any combination of A-Assault Core, B-Buster Drake, and C-Crush Wyvern to make a board of awesome boss monsters. Sam shows off the strengths of the deck and how it can win matches as easy as... Well, check out the video and find out!

Let Sam know your thoughts in the comments section, and if you're interested in learning more about the deck, be sure to check out the full standalone profile from Siro YGO.
