"Vassal" (Teikashin) is a series of monsters with 800 ATK & 1000 DEF related to the "Monarchs", with each of its members possessing an Attribute reflective of the element they control. All "Vassal" monsters have an effect that allows them to be Special Summoned from the hand, but, with the exception of "Escher the Frost Vassal", at the additional cost of disabling the Player who summoned them to Special Summon from the Extra Deck for the rest of the turn.
The Deck aims to amass card advantage from the effects of the "Danger!" monsters, that force the opponent to discard a card from the "Danger!" player's hand, whose effect follows the pattern bellow:
You can reveal this card in your hand; your opponent randomly chooses 1 card from your entire hand, then you discard the chosen card. Then, if the discarded card was not [its own name], Special Summon 1 [its own name] from your hand, and if you do, draw 1 card. If this card is discarded: You can [...]. You can only use this effect of [its own name] once per turn.
The strategy consists in the "Danger!" monsters revealing themselves in their owner's hand to activate their effects, then "hiding" in the hand again, making the opponent randomly discard a card from their opponent's hand. If they fail to "catch" the "Danger!" monster, the monster is Summoned and a card is drawn. If they do "catch" the "Danger!" monster, it triggers its discard effect, which varies from Special Summoning a "Danger!" monster from the Deck to destroying card on the field. As such, the competitive potential of the Deck lies in the fact that activating a "Danger!" monster's effect will only rarely be a disadvantage to their user. Summoning several "Danger!" monsters in a turn isn't difficult and they can quickly perform an OTK, especially when combined with other archetypes, such as "Dark World" and "Fabled", whose effects activate when they are discarded.
