“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;
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.
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.
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:
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”.
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 Can be used only once after starting hands are dealt. Reveal and redraw your starting hand. Your first Draw will be skipped if you use this Skill.
Sealed Tombs, which is commonly used to counter Vampire decks can shut down this deck.
The Fabled Kudabbi is difficult to deal with for most decks, but both Spellbook and Vampire do have an out to it in Spellbook of Fate and Vampire Vamp respectively. U.A. and Amazoness can also deal with this Level 4 Synchro, but they are way less popular right now in PvP.
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.
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.
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 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
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.
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 ^^'
> it's not even strong compared to the other meta decks
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.
