Rogue Deck Profile: Odd-Eyes Servants, Performapal Pendulumania, ft. DIFO Support

Step into the ring swinging with the new support!


Strategic Summary:

Today’s profile centers around a Pendulum theme – that’s right, the Odd-Eyes are swinging into action again. This time, without most of their Main Deck Dragons. It all begins with the new cards from DIFO, Performapal Odd-Eyes Butler (YGOrg Translation) and Performapal Odd-Eyes Valet (YGOrg Translation). Butler can destroy a Performapal or Odd-Eyes Monster card to Special Summon itself from the hand or GY, and Valet can send a Performapal or Odd-Eyes monster from deck to the GY when summoned. Both of these monsters also place themselves into the Pendulum Zone when destroyed in the Monster Zone, and they both unlock new combo chains for the Odd-Eyes variant of ‘Pendulum Good-Stuff’. Speaking of new cards, let’s talk about the other Performapals for a second. Performapal Gentrude (YGOrg Translation) can place another Performapal from your Deck into your Pendulum Zone when destroyed, and additionally, it can place itself back into the Pendulum Zone from the Extra Deck by discarding a Pendulum monster. Additionally, it can tutor an Odd-Eyes card when you have Performapal Lady Ange (YGOrg Translation) in the other Pendulum Zone. As for Ange, she can discard itself and another Performapal to draw 2 cards or place itself back into the Pendulum Zone from the GY. Altogether, this new batch of support is extremely robust at flowing in and out of the Pendulum Zones!

As with every Pendulum Deck, duels are not just won with a Pendulum Summon, but that’s where the rest of all these engines and fun card come in. With an Endymion engine, the Mythical Beasts, and the Supreme King engine, you have quite a few other Pendulum monsters to play with when building up to major plays. For non-Pendulums, a small Red Rose Dragon and White Rose Dragon suite and Artifact Scythe combo factor in as well. But this deck, as you’ll soon see in the replays, truly shines with the help of Beyond the Pendulum (YGOrg Translation), a new Link-2 that seems to be a pseudo-replacement for Heavymetalfoes Electrumite. This Link monster tutors a Pendulum Monster when Link Summoned, plus it can destroy 2 cards on the field when you Pendulum Summon 2 monsters with different levels to the zones it points to. While it does come with the drawback of negating your scales until you Pendulum Summon, this is a great addition to many Pendulum Decks, and here is no exception. Don your cap and struct back into the circus – your audience awaits with the Odd-Eyes Performapals!
