This is my favorite and current build on Abyss Actors, coming to you also in a very budget presentation.

This deck is super cheap but super fun to play as and against, seriously you won't regret getting this deck to play casually.

Everything in the build is very standard, some people like running Romantic Terror but I personally don't see the purpose of it, in any build i've seen in youtube nor replay. I'm also running 2 Abysstainment for personal reasons, but you can play the usual 3 or 2 Rise of the Abyss king, 1 opening ceremony, 1 abysstainment

The only weird thing that may shock a lot of people are the Soul Pendulum, but hear me out, this card is really good in this deck. Abyss Actors have very weird scales, unlike other pendulum decks where you see only 2 they have a wide variety of scales that sometimes prevent an optimal pendulum summon. Getting Curtain Riser negated in the scale pretty much leaves the level 7 actors (the best ones IMO) out of the turn. This is where Soul Pendulum comes in, with a handy scale changing effect you turn all the scales into optimal ones, suddenly Curtain Riser can pendulum Superstar and Madonna, and the 8 scales (normally just Comic Relief) can pendulum summon Evil Heel. the 300 boost is actually very relevant since this is a beatdown deck, and the double pendulum effect rarely if ever comes off, but is game ending by itself

The extra deck could be only for show, since you only go for Director and get locked into abyss actors, but turns after the first one can be very explosive with the link 4 and specially with the dark rebellion XYZ, being one of the only outs to dragoon in the deck.

Despite having so harsh restrictions in the summons (all effects that are good lock the turn into the actor bois) this deck has a surprising amount of versatility, with effect varied with each scale and having a very good out-of-almost-everything cards like Rise of the Abyss King and Comic Relief to out problem monsters. If you can't target said monster you can always run it down by battle with Funky Comedian instead. If let the change, Abyss Actors will run you down turn 2 with an OTK

I'm planning to make a more advance construction, with better staples (Nibiru, extrav, imperm), better extra deck and a better side deck as well made to at least reach a rogue status and compete against the meta.

I hope you enjoyed this deck profile!

    This looks pretty cool. Considering that Electrumite has a high chance of coming off the next ban list, will you consider updating it then?

    Of course! If Electrum comes back it goes right to the extra again. However in this deck playing with electrum isn’t as autopilot like the other pendulum strategies, since you usually have to choose between him and Hyper Director (summoning both before the pendulum summon is really really hard). Electrum gives you a higher ceiling but stops dead with negations, and requiting one more material to make means you usually get stuck for the rest of the turn, while Director is “safer” (it dodges Ash at least) but has restrictions after resolution. Despite that Electrum is amazing, as he is, and pushes this deck even further beyond
