It's 2019 and this 🔥 is still broken. It's way too easy to summon, stats are insane, really needs a limit.

Note: All cards listed are merely suggestions for the deck, and not entirely necessary to run a proper Des Gardius deck. The skill, while being the most useful for the deck IMHO, is likewise not necessary, should anyone find a skill they prefer over Masked Tribute.

Skill: Masked Tribute

Relinkuriboh X3

Bacon Saver X1 (Can be replaced with Sangan or similar)

Skill and Monster suggestions should be straightforward in reasoning. Spells/Traps mitigate the expense of Masked Tribute via allowing one to either double-utilize spells/traps from the grave, replace one's tributes with the opponent's monsters, and/or reuse tributes from the grave. Mask of Remnants provides a contingency, should Des Gardius leave the field via any means.

The new skill is awesome for Masked Beast
Glad this big boy finally has an animation. Been a fan of the card ever since I got it as a Marik drop.
It might be a great card for those who have 3 soul exchange
Marik doesnt have a line for this one? thats weird its his SR

Because he never used it if I remember correctly. Only Lumis & Umbra used it and also Kaiba got the card after their defeat

No, Yami Marik uses it in the first "Mind Game" episode vs Mai Valentine in Season 2.

He summons the Masked Beast, she destroys his face-downs with Harpie's Feather Duster, and then Mask of Remnants activates and equips to her Dark Dunames Witch.

This card has always been a Semi-Nomi in OCG, TCG just printed it incorrectly.

TCG text in DL has been fixed to make it a Semi-Nomi, though.
this card semi-nomi now so you can special summon it with call of archfiend if you summon this properly first
