How to use

Starting Hand

Mystic Shine Ball utility


  • Most of the turn you'll be having your Mystical Shine Ball faced up on the field, to be use along with Order to Charge to clear any threat from your opponent.
  • Enemy Controller being one of the most versatile support card, if your opponent has 2 monsters on their field and one of them is a normal monster, you can tribute one of your Mystical Shine Ball to get the normal monster and use Order to Charge to deal with his other monster.

Creature Seizure

Use Creature Seizure when your opponent controls only 1 powerful monster, so that he will have no choice but to give you control of it. Change Mystical Shine Ball to attack position before using Creature Seizure, so that you can inflict battle damage to your opponent when you attack the Mystical Shine Ball you gave him.

Other useful cards

  • Any high attack low-leveled Normal beater can be added to this deck for extra offense, but be careful not to add too much as it will hinder your main play.

How to use (Speed Draw Ver.)


  • Since this deck consist of mostly spell cards, making Eliminating the League more convenient to use.
  • Order to Smash is the best card to deal with your opponent's back row, clearing up to 2 spell/trap cards.
  • Jar of Avarice also serves as another draw engine for this deck, and can bring back 5 cards from your graveyard to your deck making them re-usable, it can also prevent you from drawing out.


Hot New Top
I went from Gold 2 to Gold 5 without losing a duel using a variation of this deck. 8/10 is too high of a rating but it's a pretty solid deck that should easily get to Plat. I imagine it won't do as well once I reach Plat
the fuck, how is this trash deck 8/10?

The Venus Red Lotus Deck build is extremely powerful!

The problem is I think the person who made the example deck did a poor representation!

Maybe he got a little to excited!

The core cards of this deck are the same as those of any Venus Control deck!

The changes which should be made to this deck are based on the introduction of the new boss monster Knight of Red Lotus + the new pack cards!

The previous Boss monsters:
-The Atmosphere
-Sky Scourge Enrise
-Swift Gaia the Fierce Knight

Now players have the option to try out a new Venus deck build!

Sky scourge is better i guess. And i think the example deck is so bad. Only 8 monsters? Lol

I always liked the Atmosphere better.

However, I didn't like running 2x copies of it like most Atmosphere players.

Exactly, one copy of atmosphere is enough since venus deck is fast draw you will draw atmosphere soon as possible
"Lotus" is censored when you put it in the name of your deck btw.
lmao if you dont draw venus you're fucked up

No it doesnt, what a terrible deck. You will have dead hands more than ever... you really need to rely on restart and magical mallet lol.

Add more normal monsters.

GX's last 2 seasons were the peak of Yugioh anime thanks to this succubus
I thought there would be a firefist-gorilla in this box ?
Unnecessary, just stop being so EDGE like Yugioh must be as EDGE as your putrid souls.
