This is a fairly standard modern Malefic deck. There's a few techs I'm thinking about dropping, but it's basically a deck you've probably already seen.

I'd like to hear everyone's thoughts and questions on this build, so fire away!

Edit: oh, it changed my topic name's caps. Huh.

edit 2: it really doesn't like all-caps words, does it?

I'd replace the Blue-Eyes with Rainbow Dragon and its Malefic counterpart, for more monsters that can be protected under Mound of the Bound Creator.

Looks good, but since skill drain is at 1, i would add some kaiser coloseums.

The idea of Blue-Eyes is it's easily searchable, and allows me to go into Synchro plays. If there were generic 12s, maybe. As it stands, Rainbow Dragon would take up main deck space and not do much, other than be another monster that fills CED's niche.

Erick, I can't seem to quote your post, but Skill Drain is actually a card I'm considering dropping. It doesn't really help my deck function at all.

Okay, now that I think about it, in addition to Skill Drain being one of the weaker links in my deck-- again, something that I don't really need in this build, Kaiser Colosseum would probably end up being a 'win more' card, since there's little a lot of decks can do in one turn to a Mound + Dragocytos.

I'll try it, though.

Rainbow also has the advantage of being able to banish from the hand in case you draw the original.

Some effect negation besides Skill Drain might be useful. Like Veiler or something.
Deck Devastation Virus could be a devastating addition, you know? But maybe more to the side, it depends. Macro Cosmos could work. Necrovalley too, as some decks still struggle against it.
Or you could add some Cyber Dragon techs and make actual use of the Fusion monsters besides using them as fodder. Even Fusion gate could work, powering-up Da Eiza and possibly allowing you to bring FGD.
And maybe Gustav Maxx. Not that you'll use it much, though.

I feel like you sorely misunderstand the point of Malefic Blue-Eyes.

Blue-Eyes' advantages include:
*Searchable en masse
*Allows Synchro Plays with Parallel Gear
*Fuels the Trade-In engine

Rainbow Dragon, from what I'm understanding....
*Searchable via the same methods
*Big Beatstick
*Works with Mound
-No synergy with cards that allow me to cycle my deck
-Uses up more maindeck space than an Extra Deck Malefic
-Cannot be used in any way with Parallel Gear, as there are no generic level 12 Synchro Monsters
-Fills the same niche as Cyber End Dragon does

I hope this was informative why I am so adamant against replacing Blue-Eyes, an integral part of my strategy, with Rainbow Dragon, a monster whose niche is already filled by another.

Veiler: A card that'd seriously stop Monarchs and Skullcrobat. I'm amazed I haven't considered it in this deck.
DDV: Shoot, okay, yeah, this is indeed, an older deck I haven't updated in a while. Thank you for reminding me that's an option-- it will surely help.
Cosmos: Probably a side deck card, since it nets no inherent advantage by itself in my deck-- wait, it's at 1. Considering it in the maindeck, now.
Necrovalley: It's a field spell. Iiiiinteresting. I'd prefer Mound to be up. Maybe as a side tech.
Cyber Dragon: Hmmm, I'm not sure how I could squeeze in an entire new engine. The cards I could drop are the Decrees, Drain, possibly Truth, and possibly Ring. I'm not sure it'd be worth the effort in this build.
Fusion Gate: If there were more generic fusions I could go into, maybe. Maybe in a secondary build I could squeeze in a HERO engine? No, that'd only give me access to the DARK Omni HERO, which isn't that good. Maybe if Starve Venom ends up being usable.
Gustav: Shoot. Keep forgetting to put that one in. Thanks for the reminder. It's actually easier to do than you think, in this deck.


Well-informed, interesting techs. Thank you for your help!

Well, the Cyber Dragon idea was just something I would try. For that, you would have to revamp your deck a bit. Don't bother with it.
My suggestion of Fusion Gate was a bit a shot in the dark. It could work, but most of the times it would clogging your plays. It would be nice if, late game, you could bring FGD with it a go for game. But that's an anime scenario. Not really worth it.

No problem, man!
