Deck Concept

A Deck centered on effect damage in the style of Yami Marik.

Restrict your opponent’s attacks with “Messenger of Peace”, while the effect of “Dark Sanctuary” has the chance of negating your opponent’s attacks. “Bowganian”, “Nightmare Wheel” and “Lava Golem” to slowly but surely whittle your opponent’s LP down via Effect Damage.

By Tributing “Metal Reflect Slime”, you can Special Summon “Egyptian God Slime” from the Extra Deck, and “Metal Reflect Slime” can be Set in the Spell & Trap Zone with the second effect of “Reactor Slime” from the hand, Deck or GY, and it can even be activated the same Turn it was Set.

Deck Concept

Tribute “Metal Reflect” to Special Summon “Egyptian God Slime” from the Extra Deck, which can, in turn, be Set to the Spell & Trap Zone from the hand, Deck or GY by the second effect of “Reactor Slime”, while “Booby Trap E” allows it to be Reset on the field from the GY.

When Normal Summoned, if you do not activate its 3rd effect, use “The Winged Dragon of Ra” as Link Material for “Salamangreat Almiraj”, sending it to the GY as material, allowing you to Special Summoned “The Winged Dragon of Ra – Immortal Phoenix”.
