How to use

Swarming the field

Always try to maintain card advantage on the field.

  • Summon Knight of the Red Lotus to keep reviving your normal monsters from the grave. In addition Knight of the Red Lotus can be special summoned from your hand by removing from play 2 normal monsters in your grave while you have exactly 3 normal monsters in your graveyard. Blue Flame Swordsman also supports this card well by reviving him from the graveyard or increasing his attack if needed.
  • Summon Goka, the Pyre of Malice and during each of your standby phases you can special summon a token defense position. These tokens have many uses since they can be used as tribute. You can use them to tribute summon Fenghuang every turn to continuously clear your opponent's backrow. They can also be used as tribute for using Enemy Controller's second effect.

Use enemy monsters as tribute

Use soul exchange to get rid of enemy monsters you can't overpower. Soul Exchange allows you to use one of your opponent's monster as tribute, and since this deck has many level 6 monsters it won't be too difficult to use this effect. However, be reminded that you can not conduct you battle phase the turn you use this effect. You can also use the second effect of Enemy Controller to take your opponent's monster then use it as tribute, but you must first tribute one of your own monsters to use this effect. Tributing your monsters for this effect would not be a problem if you already have Knight of the Red Lotus or Goka, the Pyre of Malice on your field. Knight of the Red Lotus can revive your tributed monster, while Goka, the Pyre of Malice gives you free tokens to tribute.

Protect your monsters

Use Sphere Kuriboh and Enemy Controller to protect your monsters from stronger monsters your opponent might have, make sure to protect your key monsters like Knight of the Red Lotus and Goka, the Pyre of Malice. Changing opponent monster into defense position is also an effective way of getting rid of monsters with high attack but weak defense.

I mean, why use this deck when you can basically use gravekeepers, which uses very similar strat (SE into Chief/lotus) but is obviously cheaper AND more competitive?

Oh, idk, to say fuck the Meta? To be different? To actually PLAY something different? I mean, not everyone wants to play with the GKs, and that's like the most obvious reason.

Because it's fucking different? Don't tell me you don't get sick of seeing harpies,toons, 3sd dark magician. All those decks do the same thing. At least this is adding a little more variety
