Creative Deck Profile: Dramatic Despia Darklord, ft. DAMA Support

Two DARK Fairy archetypes unite to conquer the forces of good, once and for all.


Strategic Summary:

The newly revealed Despia theme combines DARK Fairies with Fusion Summoning, much like the recent Darklord legacy support from a few main sets ago – so why don’t we try combining the two? Despia, the Stigmatika Theater (YGOrg Translation) is a highly searchable, yet generic, new field spell that lets you Fusion Summon a Level 8 or higher Fusion every turn, such as The First Darklord, a powerful Level 12 Fairy Fusion that continuously generates card advantage for you, turn after turn. If you happen to use Dramaturgia of Despia (YGOrg Translation) as Fusion material, it will even summon itself back to your field, ready to disrupt your opponent’s monster effects when any Fusion, Synchro, Link, or Xyz monster is Special Summoned from either Extra deck. Or, choose to use Despian of Tragedy (YGOrg Translation) as Fusion material, which tutors you a free Despia monster from your deck to your hand or field. The true power in this combo is the total utilization of the advantage provided by Indulged Darklord, as it alone generates 2 of your 3 Fusion material to summon The First Darklord – then you immediately get 2 of those Fusion material back if you searched then used The First Darklord to summon back Darklord Superbia. But if your opponent fields a scary board, just add Darklord Morningstar instead, wiping away their field when you go in for the Fusion Summon. Positive or negative, the swing in advantage from these powerful fairies can be difficult to overcome, especially if you add in the Despia’s themes inherent Fusion options. Embrace your inner actor and descend with these dramatic angels!
