- Building a virus control deck-RACECARbakword
Virus control decks revolve around
two cards. crush card virus and deck devastation
virus. i will not be using eradicator epidemic virus
because it is too much of a hassle to bring out
2500+ monsters unless we use summoned skull, but we
wont use it. since the viruses rely on dark monsters
all of the monsters are dark except for pyramid
Virus-Tribute 1 dark monster with 2000
or more attack. Check all monsters on your
opponent's side of the field, your opponent's hand,
and all cards they draw (until the end of your
opponent's 3rd turn after this card's activation),
and destroy all monsters with 1500 or less ATK. you
can get this card in flaming eternity or dark
-Crush Card Virus-
Tribute 1 dark monster with 1000 or less
attack. Check all monsters on your opponent's side
of the field, your opponent's hand, and all cards
they draw (until the end of your opponent's 3rd turn
after this card's activation), and destroy all
monsters with 1500 or more ATK. you can get this
card only as a SJC promo as of right now. if you go
to SJC, keep it.
The good thing about the cards is that not only do
you get rid of pesky monsters, but you get to look
at their hand and set monsters too. This will give
you a idea of what they're doing
The monsters are all dark except for pyramid
turtle. first up: Lich Lord
Lich Lord King of the Underworld-if you
tribute summon this card, tribute must be dark. If
this card is tributed by a cards effect and sent to
the graveyard it is returned to the owners hand.
-The attack and defense of this card is 2400/1200.
dark and zombie. Searchable by pyramid turtle (talk
about it later). You will most likely not tribute
summon this card, but if you do it's ok because all
of the monsters in this deck are dark except for
pyramid turtle. His second effect is the one to take
notes on. Deck Devastation Virus makes you tribute 1
dark monster with 2000 or more attack. hmmm Lich
Lord's attack is 2400 and he is dark attribute.
perfect. and when he is tributed for deck
devastation he return to your hand.
Vampire Lord- Each time this card inflicts
battle damage to your opponent, declare 1 card type
(Monster, Spell or Trap). Your opponent Selects 1
card of that type from his/her deck and sends it to
the graveyard. Also, when this card is destroyed and
sent to the graveyard by your opponent's card
effect, it is special summoned to the field during
your next standby phase.
-this card has 2000 atk, 1500 def. 5 stars. and
zombie. searchable by pyramid turtle (talk about it
later). it gets rid of your opponents cards in
his/her deck which can be a bad thing, but the whole
point of virus decks are to destroy the opponents
deck. the second effect makes him immune to mirror
force, torrential, lightning vortex ect. ect. he can
be tributed for deck devastation.
per turn, you can change this card's ATK to twice
its original attack. If you do this, destroy this
card during the end phase.
-attack 1000, def 1000.dark. zombie his effect makes
him into a 2000 atk beatstick. this effect is very
good in this deck because you are able to tribute
this for crush card or you can tribute it for deck
devastation. either one. also he is searchable by
pyramid turtle (talk about it later) and Mystic
tomato(talk about it later)
Prometheus, King of
Shadows- When you Normal Summon this card,
remove from play any number of dark monsters in your
graveyard. This card gains 400 atk
for each removed card, until the end of this
-attack 1200. def 800. dark, fiend. searchable by
mystic tomato (talk about it later). so what are you
going to do when the field is cleared for three
turns because you used deck devastation and crush
card at the same time.... if you get prometheus out
and if you have lets say 7 dark monsters in your
graveyard. boom. boost him up by 2800.
2800+1200=4000. half of your opponents lifepoints.
this card is sent from the field to the graveyard,
select 1 monster with an atk of 1500 or less from
your deck, show it to your opponent, and add it to
your hand. Then shuffle your deck.
-read the effect. enough said. get prometheus,
pyramid turtle, plague wolf mystic tomato. or you
can tribute it for crush card
When this card is sent to the graveyard as a result
of battle, you can special summon 1 dark monster
with an atk of 1500 or less in face up attack
position from your deck. Then shuffle your deck.
-mystic tomato. gets you that prometheus, plague
wolf or maybe even a sangan. it'll lick your face
(look at its picture)
this card is destroyed by battle and sent to the
graveyard, you can special summon 1 zombie monster
with 2000 or less def from your deck
-wow. get that lich lord or vampire lord out maybe
that plague wolf. Scenario that'll most likely occur
atleast once at a tourney. first turn play face down
pyramid turtle. opponent draws. special summons
cyber dragon. attacks. play lich lord. next turn.
bye bye cyber dragon. waahahaha.
Cat of ill omen-Flip:
select 1 trap card from your deck and place it on
top of your deck. If "necrovalley" is active on the
field, you can add the selected card to your hand
-1st. were not going to use necrovalley so forget
the second effect. need crush card or deck
devastation because your opponent is swarming you.
well heres the answer. also you can flip summon this
card and tribute it for crush card. then get deck
devastation and put your opponent into lockdown.
basically i put the staples in here. except for 1
book of life
-special summon 1 zombie monster from your graveyard
in face up attack or defense position and remove 1
monster in your opponent's graveyard from play.
-if your opponent has 1 monster in their graveyard
and you use this card not only do you get a lich
lord or another zombie back, but removing from play
their only monster will really tick them off.
especially when they draw premature or call the next
staples except for viruses which i already
