Deck Fix: Terror from the Abyss - Master of Shadows

 

Master of Shadows has another deck fix for you, again. Let's get to it, shall we? First, the message: 

Hi
 
I've been playing yugioh! for a while now.  I was introduced to the game by my cousin.  At the time the only thing we knew about the game is how they played in the anime(during the duelist kingdom arc) so needless to say we were clueless about building decks.  Since then I've gotten better at playing the game and building decks.  I haven't really played 
competitively  besides a tournament at an anime convention.  I would like to start playing in local tournaments and move up from there, and I would like you take a look at my deck and see if any improvements are needed.  This is the first deck I made and started out as a group of random dark monsters just thrown together with Masked Beast and Contact with the Abyss as the main cards.  Now it has become a fiend deck.  It runs pretty good in casual play but I think it could be a bit faster.  here it is
 
Terror From The Abyss.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

A Fiend deck we have here. I think I have a good fix for this.

Cards to cut:

- 2 Slate Warrior

- 2 Mystic Tomato

- 2 Dekoichi the Battlechanted Locomotive

- 1 Newdoria

- 1 Dark Jeroid

- 1 Creature Swap

- 1 Book of Moon

- 1 Nobleman of Crossout

- 2 Nobleman of Extermination

- 1 Fissure

- 1 Smashing Ground

- 1 Swords of Revealing Light

- 1 Shrink

- 1 Dark Illusion

- 2 Sakuretsu Armor

I cut 20 cards from this deck, leaving just 22 cards left and leaving me 18-20 cards to add here. I pretty much cut the cards that aren't Dark or Fiends, especially for what I'm going to do here. Slate Warrior has better options. Mystic Tomato won't help too much. Dark Jeroid is just good for a battle trick of reducing someone's attack to within kill range. The Nobleman cards are unnecessary. Fissure and Smashing Ground and other destruction and defensive cards will be replaced with better alternatives. Let's start adding.

Cards to add:

+ 1 Caius the Shadow Monarch

+ 1 Giant Orc

+ 1 Snipe Hunter

+ 1 Spirit Reaper

+ 1 Mask of Darkness

+ 2 Allure of Darkness

+ 2 Lightning Vortex

+ 2 Enemy Controller

+ 1 Crush Card Virus

+ 2 Deck Devastation Virus

+ 1 Torrential Tribute

+ 2 Bottomless Trap Hole

+ 1 Mirror Force

I added 18 cards in here. I added two more targets for Deck Devastation Virus and Crush Card Virus, two very powerful cards that can be very deadly here. Mask of Darkness is to return one of your Traps for another use, even more potent being Crush Card bait and even more when it brings Crush Card back. Spirit Reaper to stall as well as being more Crush Card bait. Allure of Darkness for draw power. Lightning Vortex as mass removal along with Mirror Force and Torrential Tribute. Bottomless Trap Hole as a better alternative to Sakuretsu Armor. If you can't get the Crush Card Virus, then another Bottomless Trap Hole or a Solemn Judgment will work or even Dark Bribe.

 Have fun with this. Questions, comments, etc. can be sent to darkdestructionv30@yahoo.com

Until next time....
