Overview

“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.

How to Use

Searching & Drawing

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 it’s an excellent searcher.

Dark World Dealings allows you to quickly draw through your Deck while also triggering some of your monsters’ effects. You can discard with Dark World Dealings The Fabled Cerburrel or The Fabled Ganashia and Special Summon them directly from the Graveyard.

Removal

The deck would normally have trouble dealing with high ATK monsters such as Cosmo Brain and Masked HERO Anki, but Snipe Hunter can easily solve this issue. The activation cost for Snipe Hunter’s effect can be used to swarm the field while destroying your opponent’s cards.

The Extra Deck

The Fabled Kudabbi is a Level 4 Synchro that you can mainly Special Summon using The Fabled Chawa and The Fabled Ganashia, The Fabled Nozoochee and The Fabled Cerburrel or Fabled Raven and Fabled Lurrie.

The Fabled Chawa + The Fabled Ganashia

The Fabled Chawa
The Fabled Chawa
The Fabled Ganashia
The Fabled Ganashia

  • Activate Fabled Chawa's effect and Special Summon it by discarding Fabled Ganashia;
  • Fabled Ganashia is Special Summoned from the Graveyard by its own effect;
  • Special Summon The Fabled Kudabbi from the Extra Deck.

The Fabled Nozoochee + The Fabled Cerburrel

The Fabled Nozoochee
The Fabled Nozoochee

The Fabled Cerburrel

  • Activate Fabled Nozoochee's effect and Special Summon it by discarding The Fabled Cerburrel;
  • Fabled Cerburrel is Special Summoned from the Graveyard by its own effect;
  • Alternatively you can discard a different “Fabled” monster and then Special Summon Cerburrel with Nozoochee’s effect from your hand;
  • Special Summon The Fabled Kudabbi from the Extra Deck.

Fabled Raven + Fabled Lurrie

Fabled Raven
Fabled Raven
Fabled Lurrie
Fabled Lurrie

  • Normal Summon Fabled Raven;
  • Activate Fabled Raven's effect and discard Fabled Lurrie;
  • Fabled Raven gains 400 ATK and 1 Level;
  • Fabled Lurrie is Special Summoned from the Graveyard by its own effect;
  • Special Summon The Fabled Kudabbi from the Extra Deck.

As long as you have no cards in your hand, The Fabled Kudabbi can't be destroyed by battle or card effect. Many decks have a hard time going first because it makes them vulnerable to an OTK, but Fabled have this beautiful Level 4 monster:

Vampires, Masked HEROes and Blue-Eyes have almost no way of getting rid of this card, as long as the protection effect is active. Spellbook of Fate, Enemy Controller, Vampire Vamp, D.D. Assailant (if Kudabbi is in Attack Position or you decided to attack a face-down monster), Forbidden Chalice, U.A. Penalty Box and Amazoness Onslaught are the most relevant cards that can deal with Kudabbi.

Before somebody asks these questions in the comments: no, Armades, Keeper of Boundaries and Buster Blader, the Dragon Destroyer Swordsman (with DNA Surgery) can’t do anything about The Fabled Kudabbi, although the latter is still able to deal piercing damage.

Ragin is a Level 5 Synchro that, when Synchro Summoned, allows you to draw until you have 2 cards in your hand. Fabled decks are able to quickly empty their hand, so this particular effect can easily turn into an automatic “draw 2 cards”.

You can mainly Summon Ragin using The Fabled Cerburrel and The Fabled Ganashia, The Fabled Chawa and Snipe Hunter or Fabled Raven and Fabled Lurrie.

The Fabled Cerburrel + The Fabled Ganashia

The Fabled Cerburrel
The Fabled Cerburrel
The Fabled Ganashia
The Fabled Ganashia

  • Activate Dark World Dealings and discard either Cerburrel or Ganashia or use Snipe Hunter’s effect to discard both of them;
  • The monster(s) discarded is Special Summoned from the Graveyard;
  • Synchro Summon Fabled Ragin.

The Fabled Chawa + Snipe Hunter

The Fabled Chawa
The Fabled Chawa
Snipe Hunter
Snipe Hunter

  • Special Summon Chawa using its own effect;
  • Normal Summon Snipe Hunter;
  • Synchro Summon Fabled Ragin.

Fabled Raven + Fabled Lurrie

Fabled Raven
Fabled Raven
Fabled Lurrie
Fabled Lurrie

  • Normal Summon Raven;
  • Activate Raven’s effect and discard Lurrie and another card;
  • Lurrie is Special Summon from the Graveyard;
  • Synchro Summon Fabled Ragin.

These are obviously not the only ways of Summoning Fabled Ragin. There are a lot of “Fabled” monsters, so there are naturally a lot of different combinations you can run and use.

Since Armades is a Level 5 Synchro, just like Ragin, you can Special Summon it using the same combinations listed above. Depending on the situation, you might want to Summon Armades over Fabled Ragin because of its effect; Armades is capable of shutting down cards like Drowning Mirror Force, Wall of Disruption and even Sphere Kuriboh.

Restart prevents you from bricking; thanks Dark World Dealings and Fabled Ragin, you can easily make up for the fact that you might skip your first Draw Phase.

Weaknesses

Other Useful Cards

CardExplanation
Tribute to The Doomed
Tribute to The Doomed
Tribute to the Doomed has great synergy with The Fabled Cerburrel, The Fabled Ganashia and Fabled Lurrie; this Spell Card is able to destroy a monster on the opponent’s side of the field while also triggering some of your monsters’ effects.
Dark Core
Dark Core
Dark Core serves a similar purpose to Tribute to the Doomed: it can only get rid of a face-up monster on the field, but it banishes it instead of just destroying it.
Into the Void
Into the Void
Into the Void can be used to quickly draw through your Deck and into your combo pieces.
The downside of this card would obviously be the fact that it forces you discard your entire hand at the end of your turn, but that hardly matters with this particular deck since it would mostly help you trigger some of your monsters’ effects.

I've had some highly amusing success with splicing in Dark Necrofear and using Bakura's Destiny Board skill. As emphasized already, many decks just CANNOT deal with Kudabbi, making the five-turn stall relatively simple to pull off. The thorn in this kind of thing are the Fire King Yubel decks running rampant, I admit.
Anonymous
This deck can be crazy fast if you get the right discard combo going. My one problem with it is it lacks control since there aren't any traps/spells unique to the archetype. Kudabbi is great for early since you can play handless for a while, but you need to have big things for later or get a quick kill before you get out late gamed

Tuner's High is absolutely amazing for this deck. Discard Lurrie to get a Raven on the field and an extra level for a synchro play. Discard Krus and get a free Kushano, plus an ss from the graveyard. All without even using your normal summon. Gates of the Dark World rules too, and Luminous Spark gets the job done far better than Urustos.

Kudabbi is a pretty strong card in my opinion. You want to get OTKed on Turn 2? Be my guest. What does Valkyrius add?

Kudabbi effect only work if you don't have cards in hand. if you have 1 or 2 makes it useless, and if you know how to play fableds, you know that hand advantage is really important. also kudabbi effect only protect against destruction. but facedown lose that protection, something that canadia can do easily, and not being inmune to destruction doesn't makes you inmune to wall of d or drowning

Kudabbi effect is continuous, so even when you use Canadia u can't ram into it because when it flipped face up kudabbi become indestructible again so u need another card destruction

I know that anon. i'm talking he lose his protection effect facedown, because his protection effect is global, meaning battle or effect. you destroy it while facedown and gg.

Guess how many times I got 6 using snipe hunter with them € _ €

Would tribute to the doomed or dark core be a good replacement for Snipe Hunter?

Yes and no. If you discard Ganashia or Lurrie as a "cost" (Dark Core, Tribute to the Doomed et cetera), their effects would miss timing. Only Cerburrel's effect would still work because it's not optional.

I have to rectify: Ganashia and Lurrie do not miss timing because their effects are mandatory, so Dark Core and TTD do work with them.

Yeah, but it's also worth meantioning that this deck costs a kidney and it's not even strong compared to the other meta decks, maybe in these cases it would be better to create a budget version with at most 2 ultra rares per type ^^'

That's not true.

>it would be better to create a budget version

The one on the website is just an Example Deck; you can certainly create a budget version, if you lack a few cards.
Little hint: the Essential Cards section can already give you an idea of what a "budget version" could look like.
