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

Fabled Grimro

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.

The Fabled Catsith

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.

The Extra Deck

Black Rose Dragon

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.

  • Normal Summon The Fabled Cerburrel;
  • Send Fabled Grimro from your hand to the Graveyard to add The Fabled Chawa from your Deck to your hand;
  • Special Summon Chawa by discarding Fabled Krus;
  • Use Krus’ effect to Special Summon Grimro;
  • Set Treacherous Trap Hole;
  • Use Chawa (Level 1 Tuner) and Grimro (Level 4 non-Tuner) to Synchro Summon Fabled Ragin (Level 5 Synchro);
  • Draw 2 cards via Ragin’s effect;
  • Use Cerburrel (Level 2 Tuner) and Fabled Ragin (Level 5 non-Tuner) to Synchro Summon Black Rose Dragon (Level 7 Synchro).

Crystron Quariongandrax

  • Normal Summon Fabled Raven;
  • Discard The Fabled Ganashia and The Fabled Cerburrel via Raven’s effect;
  • Both The Fabled Ganashia and The Fabled Cerburrel will be Special Summoned from the Graveyard;
  • Set Treacherous Trap Hole;
  • Now you can use Fabled Raven (Level 4 Tuner), The Fabled Cerburrel (Level 2 Tuner) and The Fabled Ganashia (Level 3 non-Tuner) to Synchro Summon Crystron Quariongandrax (Level 9 Synchro).

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).

[Skill] descriptionUser
Level Duplication
Reveal 1 monster in your hand, then target 1 face-up monster on your side of the field; that target's level becomes equalt to the Level of the revealed monster. This skill can be used once per Duel.

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.

Weaknesses

  • Going 2nd and running into a Set Treacherous Trap Hole or Six Style - Dual Wield can be devastating. You could run backrow removal, but you need a certain amount of “Fabled” monsters in order to maintain consistency.
  • You might have already guessed it, but this Deck struggles when going 1st, even when there is not such a heavy focus on the early OTK via Snipe Hunter. If you’re on the play, Catsith doesn’t get to destroy anything, Quariongandrax and Gungnir simply turn into high ATK monsters with no effect, and, aside from Treacherous Trap Hole, you get no interaction with your opponent during their turn.
  • Destruction is not exactly the most efficient form of removal right now: it enables Desperado Barrel Dragon and it’s not that effective on Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En or Elemental HERO Brave Neos. On the bright side, if you manage to get to Quariongandrax, you have a high chance of closing the Duel on Turn 2.

Mirror Mirror if your able tell me about this Fable

I find that gunning for a Turn 1 Leviathan alleviates some of the difficulty in going first. It forces out immediate removal (or wins the duel if they can't), then you get the resources put into it back while eating their removal, leaving you with the card advantage.

There's a myriad of ways to pull this off, though involving Ragin drawing 2 cards is a reliable contributor.

I also like to splash in a few copies of The Tricky, which not only allows for easier escalation to high-level synchros, but also allows for Arcanite Magician (discarding Fabled Cerburrel is ideal).
Tricky + Cerburrel = Arcanite Magician, remove the spell counters to destroy two cards, then add another tuner to synchro an 8/9/10 monster of choice.

The deck also works with level duplication,so you can get the lvl 10 out easier.

Maybe once we get another decent Level 10 Synchro to Summon. Leviathan is not a bad card, but it's not enough to justify running Augmentation, which I'm assuming is the Skill you were actually referring to, over Beatdown or Duplication.

Tested out a Fable Schooled deck. Works well if you draw the schooled.

Hey GameA, you missed Armades in your deck.

You can switch Kudabbi, Blue Sirius, or even BRD out for a copy of Armades. It's really good with Beatdown against Cyberdark Neos/Desperado.

Sooo... I guess nobody is aware Snipe Hunter triggers most of Fabled card effects

I guess most people are aware of that fact but don't care about Fabled at all

Yeah not many care lmao. It's decent now with the new additions but still not the greatest deck tbh. I want it to be great, but it lacks a lot unfortunately.

Oh, I'm perfectly aware of that fact, it's just that Snipe Hunter does not solve the biggest issue this Deck has: no Turn 1 play.
There's also a "Fabled Snipe" decklist already on the website http://duellinks.gamea.co/c/vzbcok3q
Another issue with Snipe Hunter is that it's not part of the archetype, which can lead to some unpleasant situations.

Gugnir need water monster to synchro.

Big mistake there; don't know how I forgot about that.
I'll sub it for Black Rose Dragon

I apologize; I was thinking "I need a Level 7 Synchro for this Deck. Hey, Gungnir would fit perfectly!". Should be fixed by tomorrow.

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 🔥 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.
