Fabled? Ahhh it's on of these Hidden Arsenal trash piles that do nothing right? NO! Unlike some strange subjects that came out of Hidden Arsenal Fabled is one of the Archetypes that is very much functional.
But beware playing Fabled takes a lot of practice since there's always at least 10 different ways to go within this Deck and one play can set you onto a path which you can't change after you decided to walk it.
Let me explain more in Detail what this Deck is all about:
The Entrance to the Fabled Realm
Almost every card is a Starter in this Deck which makes it difficult to pinpoint down one specific one. Your Goal is to summon multiple copies of Fabled Ragin while emptying your Hand to get to a wide lineup of Fabled Synchros or alternatively Psychic End Punisher and or Red Supernova Dragon. Almost every Fabled Monster is missing a once per turn Condition making big Combo setups very easy.
To facilitate advantage onto the field cards like Fabled Krus and The Fabled Cerburrel exist which special themselves or another Monster onto the field when discarded. Monsters like Fabled Raven or Fabled Marcosia enable the discarding to trigger these effects. Every maindeck Fabled follows one of these 2 patterns. Helping to discard or wanting to be discarded.
Here it's important to remember that Discarding is not Sending. Fabled Soulkius sends 2 cards to the GY so he won't trigger the Fabled effects, which you sometimes actually want.
You might have noticed the crazy amount of Monsters with 34 in total in this Deck. It's very much important to keep your Combo going once started and with many different Fabled Monsters you can aim to summon Red Supernova Dragon and Psychic End Punisher both in one turn easily. Furthermore Fabled Grimro can search for every Fabled Monster in your Deck and is missing a once per Turn either which makes this style of Deck much more effective.
Fabled Marcosia is your answer to search your small Spell & Trap lineup and with Fabled Grimro combined your whole Deck is at your disposal whenever you need it.
The Special Subject U.N.I.C.O.R.E
The Fabled Unicore has to get it's own paragraph here. It's one of only 2 Monsters existing the other being Cyber Blader which has the ability to negate everything if certain Conditions are met. And with everything I mean EVERYTHING! Since the effect acts as a permanent effect like Skill Drain for example it can negate Counter Traps like Solemn Judgment , Super Polymerization and everything normally unrespondable and destroy these cards.
To have this effect active both you and your opponent have to have the same amount of cards in their Hand. Thanks to the nature of Fabled Monsters it's best used as a agressive tool to go for game without being interrupted. Cards like Fabled Dianaira , Fabled Ragin , Fabled Andwraith , Fabled Leviathan and the Trap Fabled Treason can give this ability a nice twist and surprise the opponent during his turn too with correct setups.
Emptying your Hand is very easy and with Fabled Andwraith combined you can lure the opponent into discarding cards too. As soon as his Hand is empty it's Game Over for him. From here you can manage your Hand easily and keep the The Fabled Unicore lockdown permanently online.
Certainly a card to look out for but only if the Situation allows. Pro Tip: Summoning The Fabled Unicore first turn and passing is not good within this Deck!
The endless Realm of the Fabled
Fabled Dianaira changes the effect of the first Normal Spell activated from the opponent each turn to you discarding one card from your hand instead. He's very useful to evade cards such as Raigeki and the likes. Fabled Gallabas can Destroy Monsters by discarding cards without a Once per Turn. The Fabled Catsith mandatory destroys one Face Up card if she's discarded and can trigger Fabled Leviathan just like Fabled Treason too. Fabled Topi is your only way to destroy face down backrow within your Archetype cards. This card needs quite a lot of setup but it's worth it, if you manage to activate and loop this effect with Fabled Krus and the likes.
Fabled Treason can also destroy your own face up cards or an opponents one, discard one of your cards and revive one Monster all written to be able to destroy your own Fabled Leviathan to Recycle any 3 Fabled Monsters back to Hand. Your big 3k LV10 Boss Monster Fabled Leviathan sadly misses timing sometimes if the opponent deals with him.
Fabled Andwraith draws 2 and discards one but the opponent can discard one card to negate this effect. If he discards a Monster you can summon it to your side. Since Andwraith triggers on special summon he's a nice target to be brought back with Treason to force the opponents Hand and potentially unlock the perfect Unicore Lockdown.
Trishula vs Fabled what could go wrong?
So far everything sounds quite nice right? But it's not all Sunshine with this Deck. You have barely any Protection against anything and rely on your OTK Strategy only. Interruption outside of the The Fabled Unicore is also quite slim and your Removal options in Archetype are Face Up Cards only. Red Supernova Dragon can save them here just a bit. Also anti Graveyard cards cripple the whole Archetype with almost no hope for escape.
Final Fabled Words
Fabled struggles to set up a strong Wall but can easily overwhelm the opponent in one turn through massive Special summoning. But winning with this Deck takes practice since there's a lot that can go wrong if you choose the wrong Monsters to bring to your field at the wrong time. It's almost like Math.
Practicing this kind of Deck will reward you greatly with one easy to understand but very hard to master Deck. Give it a try if you feel up to take this challenge of a Deck.

Fabled Rules for Fabled Monsters
Below I will list some not so obvious rules about the Fabled Archetype. Before we start once again remember that "Send" and "Discard" are 2 different terms in Yugioh. Also read Fabled Monsters well. Most effects which Discard are not a Cost and instead part of the effect:
Fabled Leviathan: His effect can miss timing. Your effects used to destroy him will almost never make him miss timing.
Fabled Dianaira: His effect is mandatory and even applies if your Hand is currently empty.
Fabled Dyf: His effect can miss timing.
Fabled Raven: His effect which increases his level can make him Level 13 and higher.
The Fabled Catsith: His effect to destroy 1 face up card is mandatory and can destroy your own cards too.
The Fabled Unicore: This card will negate and destroy everything including Counter Traps, Unchainable Cards or Unrespondable Cards. This effect is treated as a continuous effect.
