Deck Profile: Marshaun Young’s Chaos Fairy Deck

October 9th, 2010

Marshaun Young’s Chaos Fairy Deck Summons big monsters that are tough for opponents to take down, including the brand new Darklord Desire. His Deck is packed with boss monsters that he protects with cards like My Body as a Shield, Effect Veiler, and Royal Decree. Unlike Christopher Krause’s unpredictable toolbox approach, Young’s Deck is more focused on pure power.

Here’s what it looks like:

Young’s Fairies are all DARK or LIGHT monsters, creating perfect synergy with the Chaos Sorcerers in his Deck. They also enable Young’s Deck to use DARK and LIGHT support cards, including Honest and Allure of Darkness.

“Desire is a DARK Fairy, so it works with Chaos Sorcerer, Dark Armed Dragon, and Archlord Kristya,” Young commented. That makes Darklord Desire the link between 3 of Young’s other boss monsters. Young uses Skelengel as well – a LIGHT Fairy that lets Young draw a card when it’s flipped face-up. Young can flip it to claim its effect, then Tribute it for Darlord Desire or Caius when it’s no longer useful.

“My favorite play is to flip Royal Decree in the End Phase, flip Skelengel, and then Tribute it for Desire. Since Desire sends monsters to the Graveyard with its effect, even Stardust doesn’t get around it,” Young told me. Since Desire has 2800 DEF and doesn’t lose any DEF when it uses its effect, Young likes to sit it in Defense Position and then keep using its effect each turn. Then, when Desire’s Attack Points are reduced to 0, he can use Book of Moon to flip it face-down and reset its ATK.

“Decree is so good this format with all of the trap-heavy Decks,” Young commented. With so many strong monsters, Young needed to find a way to protect them from popular Trap Cards like Solemn Warning, Bottomless Trap Hole, and Dimensional Prison. Royal Decree serves as a permanent solution. Protecting monsters like Archlord Kristya with cards like Royal Decree, My Body as a Shield, and Effect Veiler can be game breaking – an opponent who’s unable to Special Summon will be severely limited in his plays. With so many Fairy-Type monsters in Young’s Deck, he’s easily able to Special Summon Kristya at will and take advantage of its effects.

Even with the risk of his face-up Royal Decree leaving him unable to use any Trap Cards, Young decided to use Return from the Different Dimension in his Deck. “Return is a potential game-winning card,” Young noted. Young can remove a ton of his monsters from the game with Chaos Sorcerer, Dark Armed Dragon, and Dimensional Alchemist, and bring them all back for a final victory with Return. He can also take advantage of his opponents’ copies of Bottomless Trap Hole and Dimensional Prison to return big monsters that his opponent removes from the game. No matter how far Young is behind his opponent, he can use Return from the Different Dimension to snag a quick victory.

With so many Duelists in the field unaware of Darklord Desire’s release, Young may be able to surprise a lot of opponents with his powerful Fairies. Will it be enough for Young to make it to the top? We’ll find out tomorrow!
