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

Chaos Dragon Levianeer

Chaos Dragon Levianeer
Chaos Dragon Levianeer
DARK Dragon ★8
ATK 3000 / DEF 0
Infinite Ray [UR]
Selection Box Vol. 02 Mini [UR]
Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must first be Special Summoned (from your hand) by banishing 3 LIGHT and/or DARK monsters from your GY. When Summoned this way: You can activate this effect; apply the following effect, based on the Attribute(s) of the monsters banished for the Special Summon, also this card cannot attack for the rest of this turn.
● Only LIGHT: Special Summon 1 monster from your GY in Defense Position.
● Only DARK: Shuffle 1 random card from your opponent's hand into the Deck.
● Both LIGHT and DARK: Destroy up to 2 cards on the field.
You can only use this effect of "Chaos Dragon Levianeer" once per turn.

Levianeer is a great boss monster in decks that mainly consist of LIGHT and DARK monsters such as this. Always summon Levianeer with a mix of LIGHT and DARK monsters as cost to activate its removal effect. After that he's essentially a 3000 ATK beater that you summoned without losing card advantage.

Snipe Hunter

Snipe Hunter
Snipe Hunter
DARK Fiend ★4
ATK 1500 / DEF 600
Resonance of Contrast [UR]
You can discard 1 card, then target 1 card on the field; roll a six-sided die, and destroy that target unless you roll a 1 or 6.

Snipe Hunter's effect provides single-target on-demand removal. Even though it's not guaranteed to activate, the two-in-three chance is good. The effect cost won't even feel like a cost because this will also activate your Fabled monsters' effects. Its best feature is that the effect has no limit to its use so you can keep popping enemy cards while activating Fabled effects.

Fabled Monsters

The Fabled Cerburrel
The Fabled Cerburrel
EARTH Beast ★2
ATK 1000 / DEF 400
Revolution Beginning [UR]
If this card is discarded to the Graveyard: Special Summon it.

Cerburrel is a Tuner that Special Summons itself upon being discarded, making it a great pair with Snipe Hunter to make level-6 Synchros. You can also discard Cerburrel with Nozoochee's effect to make a level-4 Synchro or a Rank-2 Xyz.

The Fabled Ganashia
The Fabled Ganashia
LIGHT Beast ★3
ATK 1600 / DEF
Valiant Souls [R]
Curse of Dread [R]
When this card is discarded to the Graveyard, Special Summon it. If this card is Special Summoned this way, it gains 200 ATK and is removed from play when it is removed from the field.

Ganashia can be seen as the non-Tuner counterpart of Cerburrel because it is also Special Summoned upon being discarded. This lets you easily get it onboard to use as Synchro material. Pair Cerburrel and Ganashia to make Ragin but make sure you spend your hand first. You can discard Cerburrel and Ganashia with Snipe Hunter's effect then use all three monsters to make Vermillion Dragon Mech.

The Fabled Nozoochee
The Fabled Nozoochee
LIGHT Beast-Warrior ★2
ATK 1200 / DEF 800
Revolution Beginning [N]
During your Main Phase, you can discard 1 "Fabled" monster and Special Summon this card from your hand. When this card is Special Summoned this way, you can Special Summon 1 Level 2 or lower "Fabled" monster from your hand.

Summon Nozoochee by discarding Cerburrel then make Unicore. You can also discard Ganashia, then Special Summon Cerburrel with Nozoochee's effect to make a level-7 Synchro. Overall Nozoochee can be a little inconsistent due to also needing Cerburrel on hand as pair, but Nozoochee still makes a good target for Obedience Schooled.

The Fabled Catsith
The Fabled Catsith
LIGHT Beast ★1
ATK 800 / DEF 600
Curse of Dread [SR]
When this card is discarded to the Graveyard, select 1 face-up card on the field, and destroy it.

Discard Catsith as the cost for Snipe Hunter, Raigeki Break, etc. to pop another card from the opponent's field.

Ryko Monsters

Lightsworn monsters are usually used for their ability to mill. But in this case we mainly use Ryko due to being a level-2 Beast. Luckily, its effects are generic enough to be useful outside of a mill engine.

Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter
Ryko, Lightsworn Hunter
LIGHT Beast ★2
ATK 200 / DEF 100
Lords of Shining [SR]
FLIP: Apply these effects in sequence.
● You can target 1 card on the field; destroy that target.
● Send the top 3 cards of your Deck to the Graveyard.

Set Ryko and use his removal effect when flipped. The mill effect also helps setup the graveyard for Levianeer.

Ryko, Twilightsworn Fighter
Ryko, Twilightsworn Fighter
DARK Beast ★2
ATK 200 / DEF 100
Blair Flannigan Lvl 14, 23, and 33 [SR]
If this card is Normal Summoned or flipped face-up: You can banish 1 "Lightsworn" monster from your hand or GY; banish 1 card on the field. Once per turn, if your other "Lightsworn" monster's effect is activated: Send the top 3 cards of your Deck to the GY.

Normal Summon Ryko for on-demand banishing removal. However, the only thing you can use as cost is another copy of itself or Lightsworn Ryko.

Special Summon

Obedience Schooled
Obedience Schooled
Normal Trap
Land of the Titans [SR]
If you control no monsters: Special Summon 3 Level 2 or lower Beast-Type Effect Monsters with different names from your Deck. Their effects are negated, and they are destroyed during the End Phase. If you activate this card, you cannot Special Summon for the rest of this turn, except Beast-Type monsters.

Obedience Schooled is a really powerful Synchro enabler and is the reason why we run multiple level-2 Beasts. Summoning any combination of level-2 or lower beasts from your deck allows for various Synchro plays. For example:

  • Cerburrel + Nozoochee/Ryko = Unicore or Hastorr
  • Cerburrel + Nozoochee + Ryko = Brionac or any level-6 Synchro
  • Catsith + Nozoochee + Ryko = Rajin

If you already have Synchro monsters onboard, you can use Obedience Schooled to summon more Tuners to Synchro climb into Vermillion Mech Dragon or Crystron Quariongandrax.

Removal Tech

Raigeki Break and Karma Cut pop an enemy card while their effect cost triggers your Fabled monsters' effects. Raigeki Break is able to target any card, making it a more versatile removal option than Karma Cut. But Karma Cut banishes and disrupts the graveyard, so it is generally the more powerful option.

Raigeki Break
Raigeki Break
Normal Trap
Soul of Resurrection [UR]
Discard 1 card, then target 1 card on the field; destroy it.
Karma Cut
Karma Cut
Normal Trap
Selection Box Vol. 02 Mini [SR]
Discard 1 card, then target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; banish that target, then banish all cards with the same name as that monster from your opponent's Graveyard.

Extra Decks

Vermillion Dragon Mech
Vermillion Dragon Mech
FIRE Machine ★9
ATK 2700 / DEF 1800
Blazing Rose [UR]
1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
Once per turn: You can banish 1 Tuner from your hand, field, or Graveyard, then target 1 card on the field; destroy it. If this Synchro Summoned card is destroyed by card effect and sent to the Graveyard: You can target 1 of your banished Tuners; add it to your hand.

Vermillion Dragon Mech has good stats and a good cost-efficient removal effect. There's no graveyard recursion in this deck so you can use any Tuner you want as cost.

Coral Dragon
Coral Dragon
WATER Dragon ★6
ATK 2400 / DEF 500
Chronicle of Glory [UR]
1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
Once per turn: You can discard 1 card, then target 1 card your opponent controls; destroy it. If this Synchro Summoned card is sent from the field to the Graveyard: You can draw 1 card. You can only use this effect of "Coral Dragon" once per turn.

Coral Dragon is a good general purpose level-6 Synchro. Decent ATK stat and a simple targeting removal effect. The discard cost, like any in this deck, will trigger the effect of Fabled monsters. And Coral Dragon gives you a draw when it leaves the field. This means it's also good for Synchro climbing with Ganashia into Vermillion Mech Dragon.

Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier
Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier
WATER Sea Serpent ★6
ATK 2300 / DEF 1400
Aerial Assault [UR]
1 Tuner + 1+ non-Tuner monsters
You can discard any number of cards to the GY, then target the same number of cards your opponent controls; return those cards to the hand. You can only use this effect of "Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier" once per turn.

Brionac allows you to mass remove enemy cards from the field, and mass activate Fabled effects.

Fabled Ragin
Fabled Ragin
LIGHT Fiend ★5
ATK 2300 / DEF 1800
Revolution Beginning [SR]
1 "Fabled" Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
When this card is Synchro Summoned, if you have 1 or less cards in your hand, you can draw until you have 2 cards in your hand.
Fabled Leviathan
Fabled Leviathan
LIGHT Fiend ★10
ATK 3000 / DEF 2000
Curse of Dread [R]
1 "Fabled" Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
When this card on the field is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard, you can select up to 3 "Fabled" monsters in your Graveyard. Add them to your hand.

Empty your hand with discard costs and setting Spell/Traps before summoning Ragin to maximize your deck cycling. This makes Ragin a good combo piece especially if you draw into Obedience Schooled.

Leviathan is supposed to be the Fabled boss monster, but he essentially amounts to a 3000 ATK beater. The recovery effect can be good for setting up your next combo. Or, if you recover Nozoochee and Cerburrel, proceed to make a level-4 Synchro. Make Leviathan with Cerburrel and Levianeer.

The Fabled Unicore
The Fabled Unicore
LIGHT Beast ★4
ATK 2300 / DEF 1000
Curse of Dread [SR]
1 "Fabled" Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
While you and your opponent have the same number of cards in hand, negate all Spell, Trap and Effect Monster effects activated by your opponent, and destroy that Spell/Trap/Monster.

Unicore has a very powerful effect but with a somewhat difficult activation condition. During your turn, this effect will be easy to maintain and will protect you from enemy backrow and disruption effects. Control your hand size by using discard effects and putting down backrow. During the opponent's turn this effect is much harder to maintain. You can attempt to manage your hand with discard cost Traps such as Raigeki Break and Karma Cut.

Old Entity Hastorr
Old Entity Hastorr
WIND Reptile ★4
ATK 2300 / DEF 1000
Masters of Shadow [SR]
1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
If this card is sent from the Monster Zone to the Graveyard: You can target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; equip this card from your Graveyard to that monster. That monster cannot attack, also its effects are negated. If this card leaves the field while equipped to an opponent's monster by this effect: Take control of the monster this card was equipped to.

An alternative level-4 Synchro to Unicore is to summon Hastorr. Hastorr is great at disrupting enemy boss monsters by negating their effect. And when Hastorr is destroyed while equipped, you can take control of that enemy monster, so your opponent has no choice but to remove their own boss monster.

Number 45: Crumble Logos the Prophet of Demolition
Number 45: Crumble Logos the Prophet of Demolition
EARTH Zombie ★2
ATK 2200 / DEF 0
Shark Fang [R]
2 or more Level 2 monsters
Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 other face-up card on the field; while this monster is face-up on the field, that target has its effects negated. While that target is on the field, cards with the same name as that target, and their effects, cannot be activated.

In a monster effect heavy meta, Crumble Logos is a great tech against them. The lasting effect negation is good for turning off disruptive effects like Desperado Barrel Dragon.

I didn't play this Archetype, I am just a person watching decklists here, but I gotta tell you, play 3x Hallowed Life Barrier, I am 100% sure that 🔥 would be awesome

it depends on your play style, fabled can be defensive or aggressive, very flexible on traps selection

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.

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.

ValleCula Reply
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.

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 🔥 before you get out late gamed
