Deck Fix: Macro Cosmos Monarchs - Master of Shadows

Hello, everyone. I have yet another deck fix for you, people, so let me get to it. Here's the message:

hi there, master of shadows.  i've been checking out pretty much all your deck fixes and i must say that you've certainly been doing a very good job so far.  So, would you please take a look at my deck? it's a Macro Cosmos Monarchs.  Here's the list:
 
Monsters: 19
 
2 x Caius the Shadow Monarch
1 x Raiza the Storm Monarch
3 x Thestalos the Firestorm Monarch
1 x Dark Magician of Chaos
1 x Marshmallon
3 x Banisher of the Radiance
1 x Banisher of the Light
1 x Morphing Jar
2 x Dekoichi the Battlechanted Locomotive
1 x Legendary Jujitsu Master
3 x Cyber Valley
 
Spells: 12
 
1 x Heavy Strom
1 x Mystical Space Typhoon
1 x
Monster Reborn
1 x Premature Burial 
1 x Brain Control
3 x Soul Exchange
1 x Machine Duplication
1 x Lighting Voltex
1 x Book of Moon
1 x DDR - Different Dimension Reincarnation
 
Traps: 9
 
1 x Trap Dustshoot
1 x Mind Crush
1 x Mirror Force
1 x Phoenix Wing Wind Blast
2 x Macro Cosmos
1 x Return from the Different Dimension
2 x Divine Wrath
 
For your piece of information, the reason why you don't see the 'ALMIGHTY' cards such as 'Solemn Judgement', 'Torrential Tribute', 'Card Crush Virus' is simply because i've only got enough copies of those for my other tournament deck.  I don't have 'Dark Bribe' either.  Given the situation, i still hope that with your help, this could turn into a fairly competitive deck against all those top ranking 'DAD', 'Lightsworn' and 'Gladiator Beasts'.  Hope this is not too heavy of a task for you, :P.  Thanks and have a good day!!!
 

Hmm. No Solemns, Bribes, Torrential, or Crush Card. Crush Card you can do without. Solemnsn and Bribes, I have replacements for. Torrential, though, I should hope you have a common version somewhere that you can use. So we have a Macro Monarch deck, but there are quite a few elements missing from the deck, so why don't I fix that?

Cards to remove:

- 1 Thestalos the Firestorm Monarch

- 1 Banisher of the Light

- 1 Banisher of the Radiance

- 2 Dekoichi the Battlechanted Locomotive

- 1 Legendary Jujitsu Master (side deck it if you wish)

- 2 Soul Exchange

- 1 Machine Duplication

- 1 Trap Dustshoot

- 1 Mind Crush

I cut 11 cards from the deck. Thestalos will be replaced by another Monarch. Banisher of the Light, while its defense is high, you have to wait for it to be flipped, making Banisher of the Radiance the superior choice. The third Banisher of the Radiance was cut because Dimensional Fissure and Macro Cosmos do the job for you without using your Normal Summon. Dekoichi because you already have your draw engine in the form of Cyber Valley (combined with what I plan to do). Legendary Jujitsu Master won't help too much in this deck. Soul Exchange because there's a better source of Tribute bait to add. Machine Duplication won't serve us too well. Trap Dustshoot and Mind Crush, while a potent combo, must be replaced for some other cards.

Now to add things:

+ 1 Caius the Shadow Monarch

+ 3 D.D. Survivor

+ 3 D.D. Scout Plane

+ 2 Reinforcement of the Army

+ 2 Magic Drain / Seven Tools of the Bandit / Allure of Darkness

I added 11 cards. Caius replaced Thestalos for a bit of field control (with added Burn damage at times). D.D. Survivor and D.D. Scout Plane for the Tribute bait (and use with Cyber Valley). Reinforcement of the Army to pull out D.D. Survivor. Magic Drain to stop any harmful Spells that come your way or at least make them more costly, Seven Tools to stop any Traps, especially the Solemns and Bribes that may block you, and Allure of Darkness for more draw power if you have it.

Well, I did what I could for this. I hope this works out for you. If things don't seem like they're working, try changing your playing style with this deck. That usually works.

Questions, comments, suggestions, etc. can be sent to darkdestructionv30@yahoo.com

Until next time....
