What Did You Think You Were Gonna See?
Well, there is a general consensus that bog fatty monsters
are really good. They beat over smaller guys and just smash
your opponent's lifepoints into a bloody pulp. The problem
with these guys is that they cost a lot of resources both in
lifepoints and cards in order to get them successfully to
the field. But no more!
Beast King Barbaros has changed all of that, replacing
Fusilier Dragon the Dual Mode Beast in the Dark Skill Drain
deck. Now,w e have even more ways to abuse tha awesomeness
of these cards. With Skill Drain becoming a massive force
on the battlefield in big competitions, you can even use
your opponents own Skill Drain against them.
I am talking of course about a deck packing cards that love
Skill Drain while destroying your opponent's cards and using
their own resources against them. Now that sounds like a
deck that could actually do something.
3x Beast King Barbaros
3x Fusilier Dragon the Dual-Mode Beast
2x Destiny Hero Malicious
2x Allure of Darkness
2x Destiny Draw
2x Book of Moon
1x Enemy Controller
1x Smashing Ground
1x Reinforcement of the Army
1x Brain Control
1x Monster Reborn
1x Heavy Storm
1x Giant Trunade
3x Skill Drain
3x Proof of Powerlessness
Size Does Matter
Obviously the deck is packing a ton of monsters as well as
Spell cards. The reason for that is simple. In a Skill Drain
deck, they rely a lot on other trap cards in order to keep
Skill Drain on the field. Dark Bribe and Solemn Judgment do
this with aplomb.
However, the one card that shuts down the strategy is Royal
Decree. You cannot get rid of it without hurting your own
spell and trap cards unless you have your own Mystical Space
Typhoon. So the deck was made to play around that obvious
side-deck choice so that your opponent's side deck becomes
The main card that many people will be scratching teir heads
about is definitely Proof of Powerlessness. This is an
amazing trap card that if you have a level 7 or higher
monster on the field will destroy all level 5 or lower
monsters on your opponent's field. youc annot attack during
the turn it is played, but you can just play it on
youropponent's turn to get around that.
As Barbaros and Fusilier Dragon are both level 7 or hiher,
they will sit back and wipe your opponent's Blackwing field
in a heartbeat Or should you want to destroy their Synchro
Materials before they become a threat, that is acceptable
The deck is packing 4 draw spells in order ot get you to
Skill Drain as quickly as possible, as your monsters are not
nearly as forceful as when Skill Drain is on the field.
Exiled Force is an underlooked monster as he can get around
Skill Drain as his effect forces him to tribute himself so
he is not on the field when his effect resolves. He is great
spot removal for opposing indestructible monsters as well as
just another big guy that is getting in your way.
Fusilier Dragon is pretty much an inferior version of
Barbaros but he still has 2800 ATK when Skill Drain is on
the field as well as being a DARK monster. Even though he is
slightly inferior, his massive power makes up for it.
There are a couple of cards that I thought would be awesome
in here, but didn't have time or space to put them in. Here
is a list so you can use them to customize your own deck.
Mystical Space Typhoon
All of these cards are great in the deck, but as I wanted ot
go a little outside of mainstream with the deck, they did
not fit into the general feel of the deck that I wanted to
This particular deck borrows a lot from the Skill Drain
decks from SJC Anaheim, but you can certainly take out many
of the cards in the deck in order to get it to fit your
