Forgetting the Better - That Guy

People should know me now as a duelist I like to call "Believer"
By this I mean that the duelist believes one day, Yu-Gi-Oh! will be a game of knowledge, skill, luck, and diversity. Diversity is such a key thing to this game's life. We all know or think that the new format and cards from TAEV will bring more decks back to life and yes, that will be true. To go along with that, Marshmallon came out also and will take Lockdown Burn to another height. I, like so many other people, believe Crystal Beasts, Zombies, and Gravekeeper's are a shoe in to make it big. Beasts also have made a stand but what about the other 30 decks that live in the game. Harpies, Warriors, Spellcasters, Amazons, Cyberdarks, etc. They all could come out and play but there is a deck type I would like to discuss today. Beatdown is the focus and this deck has the best support card in the game next to Magical Dimension.

Archfiend Deck

Woah! Archfiends? But they are good. After play testing for a while, they went toe to toe with the Il Blud impact Zombie Deck. Topped the Crystal Beasts. Lost to only 1 deck, the one I wield. How? They have no tricks up their sleeves. No Crystal Abundance, no Great Shogun Shien, no Il Blud, so how? This deck gets damage done so fast, your opponent won't know what hit them. Let's start the explaining.
Terrorking was an obvious max 3. Though you can't normal summon or flip when there are no Archfiends on the field, when you do have one, or 1 of the 4 revivals, can bring on the heat. Infernal Queen helps top the strong monsters with an errata effect, Dark Bishop protects against designators, Vilepawn can create a lock which explains Giant Rat, and Desrook can bring back a fallen Terrorking. UFO Turtle is for Infernal Queen and Dark Ruler Ha Des is the biggest monster in here to top Monarchs and Jinzo by 50, as well as negating effects destroyed by any of the fiends and himself. Then you got Spirit Reaper and Marshmallon. They were recent additions and normally I don't stick cards like these in decks where they don't belong, but it was needed. When Archfiends run out of moves, these 2 help buy some time. On to spells
Falling Down is the greatest support card next to MD. Takes control of any monster and you can max it out to 3. Though you do take 800 damage per opponent's stand by, your oppnent will probably take 5 times as much. A great ender. Axe of Despair is needed because Cyber Dragon is there and these monsters need a good equip. The rest are self-explantory.
Traps are also self-explanatory. Archfiend's Roar, though a 500 lp cost and a 1 turn return only, can make that dead Falling Down come alive, stop attacks, or win the game.
So there is the Archfiend deck. If you are in a state of shock, get the cards for this deck (because it is the cheapest thing ever [besides Mirror Force]), and play if yourself. If you don't want to spend your time on this...
