1 D/D Oracle King D’Arc

Summary Notes:
• “Number C43: High Manipulator of Chaos” is the Deck’s chief goal.
• Since the Deck is full of Level 2 DARK monsters, you can add “Malicevorous”, while also bringing out Fiends like the “D/D” monsters
• With Level 10 “D/D” monsters, you can use the Rank 10 “Number XX: Utopic Dark Infinity” to gain Life, to activate the effect of “Number 43: Manipulator of Souls”.
• “D/D Swirl Slime” can bring out “D/D/D Oracle King D’Arc” who turns damage to you into LP gain, which can be combined with “Ring of Destruction” to halt your opponent.
• “Number 43: Manipulator of Souls” lets you inflict damage equal to the LP gained.

1 Negalogia AA-Zeus
1 Invoked Magellanica
2 Linkuriboh
1 Knightmare Phoenix
1 Coordineral the Gem Transferer

Summary Notes:
• Its ace is “Gorgonic Guardian”.
• Since Rock monsters that can Special Summon are plentiful, use “Miracle Rupture” to add “Gorgonic Cerberus” from your Deck to your hand so you can make monsters Level 3.
• Banish “Gorgonic Golem” from your GY to seal your opponent’s Spell/Trap, then use it to Special Summon “Nemeses Keystone”.
• Use “Block Dragon” to gather “Gorgonic Ghoul(s)” and “Power Giant”.
• “Gorgonic Guardian” to make opponent monsters have 0 ATK, which has fantastic synergy with “Xyz Import” to make that monster into Xyz Material.

Deck Concept

An “Evilswarm” Deck featuring “Raiders’ Knight”.

“Raiders’ Knight” requires 2 Level 4 DARK monsters, which a “Evilswarm” Deck excels at.

The second effect of “Steelswarm Origin” prevents itself from being destroyed, while if a monster is destroyed, you can Special Summon “Evilswarm” monsters from the Deck. “Raiders’ Knight” lets you Special Summon “The Phantom Knights of Break Sword”, allowing you to destroy opponent monsters.

Also, depending on the situation, you can bring out “Arc Rebellion Xyz Dragon” to gain enough ATK to end the Duel in one hit, which gives “Evilswarm” Decks an option they haven’t had up to now.

POINT: RANK UP or DOWN

Rank Up with “Raiders’ Knight” -> “Arc Rebellion Xyz Dragon”

Rank Down with “Raiders’ Knight”” -> “The Phantom Knights of Break Sword”

Both are strong monsters.
