“Fabled” is an archetype of LIGHT, Fiend and Beast-Type monsters that was initially introduced into the game in Electric Overload over a year ago. Many months after their initial release, Fabled did receive further support in Valiant Souls, but the archetype still wasn’t good enough to see competitive play.
“Fabled” decks focus on discarding cards from the hand to the Graveyard in order to enable certain effects. Some “Fabled” monsters (The Fabled Cerburrel, The Fabled Ganashia) Special Summon themselves from the Graveyard when they are discarded;
Thanks to this type of effect, “Fabled” decks are capable of quickly swarming the field and then, with the help of the Tuner monsters introduced in Revolution Beginning, Special Summon powerful Synchro monsters such as The Fabled Kudabbi and Armades, Keeper of Boundaries from the Extra Deck.
By sending Fabled Grimro from your hand to the Graveyard, you can add a “Fabled” monster from your Deck to your hand. You need to control a face-up “Fabled” monster in order to activate Grimro’s effect, but that doesn’t take away much from the fact that this is an excellent card, especially since you can activate this effect multiple times during the same turn.
When The Fabled Catsith is discarded to the Graveyard, you get to target a face-up card on your opponent’s side of the field and destroy it. You can discard Catsith via Fabled Raven, The Fabled Nozoochee, The Fabled Chawa or even Gungnir, the Dragon of the Ice Barrier.
When Black Rose Dragon is Synchro Summoned, you can destroy all cards on the field. You can use Black Rose Dragon to punish your opponent for overcommitting to the board early. You can also use World Legacy Clash to prevent your Black Rose Dragon from being destroyed by its own effect.
You will often find yourself with multiple Level 5 or higher monsters on the field, but, aside from Crystron Quariongandrax, none of them will be able to get over high ATK monsters such as Blue-Eyes White Dragon and Desperado Barrel Dragon. Using this Skill, Fabled Ragin will reach 2600 ATK by itself and 2900 ATK with another Level 5 monster. Take advantage of Raven’s ability to increase its Level and surprise your opponent with an unexpected 3100 ATK monster (Beatdown with 2 Level or higher monsters on the field on a Level 5 Fabled Raven).
Level Duplication is used primarily to Summon Gungnir, Dragon of the Ice Barrier with more ease, turning The Fabled Chawa into a Level 2 Tuner. You can use Cerburrel, Raven, Nozoochee or Krus to change Chawa’s Level.
