CDP: Supreme King Odd-Eyes Nouvelles, Feed your Z-ARC Pendulums

Supreme King Z-ARC dines “Chez Nouvelles”.


Strategic Summary:

Today’s Creative Deck Profile merges two of my past profiles into one, and it actually works very well! Let’s start with the Supreme King side of the deck, as that serves up the primary boss monsters on the Menu. Supreme King Gate Magician (YGOrg Translation) is the key to unlocking your boss, as whenever it is Summoned, you get to tutor any card that mentions Supreme King Z-ARC, except a Spellcaster monster. Odds are, you’ll be tutoring Soul of the Supreme Celestial King (YGOrg Translation), as this Trap Card can tribute a Gate Magician, then Fusion Summon Z-ARC by banishing materials from anywhere, including from your Extra Deck! Getting to this point is actually much easier than you may expect, as Supreme King Dragon Darkwurm gets to tutor any Supreme King Gate Pendulum Monster, and The Light-Winged Dragon (YGOrg Translation) can tutor any Supreme King Dragon or Supreme King Gate Pendulum Monster. If you don’t like either option, you can also turn to Dragon Shrine or Odd-Eyes Revolution Dragon… or Beyond the Pendulum, of course!

As for the Odd-Eyes side of this deck, this is your core Pendulum engine that offers consistency and backup plays beyond Z-ARC. Performapal Odd-Eyes Valet gets to send any Performapal or Odd-Eyes monster from the Deck to the GY on summon, and you’ll most typically be sending a copy of Performapal Odd-Eyes Butler to the GY. Once in the GY, Butler can destroy a Odd-Eyes Monster you control to Special Summon itself, so if you happened to have an Odd-Eyes Arc Pendulum Dragon when you destroy Valet, you’ll be good to go into your Link monsters to unlock more zones to Pendulum Summon to! With all of these Odd-Eyes cards comes great responsibility, and of course, Odd-Eyes Pendulumgraph Dragon. This Level 7 Ritual Pendulum will mainly be Pendulum Summoned in today’s build, but it can negate an opponent’s Spell Card or effect while Special Summoning an Odd-Eyes monster from your Extra Deck, plus its Pendulum Effect tutors any Ritual Spell.

Speaking of Ritual Spells, let’s get into the small Nouvelles engine in this deck. While the full Nouvelles suite aims to Ritual Summon the Level 1 Buerillabaisse de Nouvelles and work your way up the entire Nouvelles Ritual ladder, one Tribute at a time, this build today goes with the odd-Leveled Nouvelles monsters, as you don’t really need that much disruption when you already have Z-ARC at your disposal. The primary boss is Baelgrill de Nouvelles, which can negate the effects of all face-up cards your opponent controls, before tributing all of their monsters (as long as it was summoned via the effect of Balameuniere de Nouvelles). If you’re wondering how you will pull off these Ritual Summons, worry no further, as Diviner of the Herald can send Herald of the Arc Light to tutor what component you need, then when it is Tributed, it will Special Summon Poissoniere de Nouvelles (YGOrg Translation) from the deck, which in turn, can tutor either Recipe Ritual Spell card. That pretty much closes the loop on today’s main courses, as you’ll have the potency of the Supreme King side, blended with the Savoury Odd-Eyes monsters, topped with a delicate Nouvelles sauce! To be honest, I’m not really sure how to make too many more food puns in this description, so let me just close by encouraging you to witness the deck in action yourself, in the replays!
