The strategy is similar to Nekroz with the exception of the cards that it uses as ritual summoning fodder. Most of the fodder does come from the regular deck, but there is generally not enough fodder in any given hand for you to summon Trishula; the boss of this deck and the hardest card to summon. Whilst this deck does not perform the special summons of a true Nekroz deck and can not survive off of the extra deck in a link format, it does have its strengths: being able to turn weak, but sustainable, card advantage into plus summons and being able to protect monsters that are on the field for extended periods of time.

Yu-Gi-Oh Profile: I started playing Yu-Gi-Oh in 2007 and left after about 6 years of casual play. I came back towards the end of 2015 (around when Nekroz was being played), and continued for about a year or two as a pretty casual player (using cards like Hammon, rarely going for a SS, carelessly wasting advantage - the whole 9 yards). In 2016-2017, however, I decided to pick up a competitive deck online (Zoodiacs) and I failed horribly. My experience with zoo led me to a whole variety of decks including Draco, D/D/D and several Pendulum based strategies, and since then I've made it my mission to understand the meta as well as to learn how to play it/play against it. Now I play on Dueling Nexus with an occasional appearance on Dueling Book Rated, so if you'd like to duel or chat - shoot me a message on discord (Cryselle#6969). - My favorite deck: D/D/D (MR3) - What I'm currently playing: Cyber Dragons Alas the 2018 meta is disappearing

    Not sure on how much I like Jigabite here;Especially not in a deck without the Performage clowns and/or salvalge. Damage Juggler is now legal, though only at 1.

    Have you tried playing around with Armageddon Knight? He can mill the Djinn monsters, as well as shaddolls, and is searchable with Reinforcement of the Army, which is a card you already want to play as it searches claus. Shaddolls all trigger from being sent to grave for a ritual summon, might be a thing to try. At the very least, sending Demolisher with arma sets gungnir up really nicely!

    3 Kaleidoscope might also be a little much; Most decks of the era only played 2/2/2. I’d take out the traps as well (Play Judgment now that it’s legal, maybe!) and side the twin twisters. Twisters is only good vs backrow, and has a very steep cost for Necloth.

    You also want to max out on manju/senju. They’re the key of your deck, and you want to summon one every turn.(or arma, if you choose to play it – though that does sound like a lot of normal summons)

    1.) Jigabyte is hard to vouch for here but it can provide xyz support
    2.) I haven’t really tried Armageddon Knight, I never actually thought of running shaddolls – sounds really interesting, I’ll be sure to give it a try.
    3.) I agree that a 2/2/2 format, which was popular, is better than the 2/2/3 format I’m suggesting: but I run 3 Kalaideoscope because I just found that I wasn’t pulling it reliably – that may just be me, and honestly you could run as many copies as needed.
    4.) Maxing out manju seems more sensible to me than maxing out on senju, though I can see why you might do that. To me I just haven’t been able to pull of great combos with senju.

    Thanks for the feedback by the way! @TreeTopDuelist
