How to use

Level Up

Your goal is to get Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8 out as quickly as possible. You can do this by:

  • Having the lower level Horus monsters special summon their stronger versions through their own effects. This might be kind of slow since you need to destroy a monster your opponent controls with your Horus, then wait till the end phase to special summon it's next form.
  • You could also use Level Up! on your horus to immediately summon it's stronger version. This can work on Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV6 to special summon Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8, because even though Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV6 is immune to spell effects he can be used as cost for them.

Let Horus destroy monsters

Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV4 and Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV6 needs to destroy an opponent's monster before they can level up during the end phase. Mirror Wall can help you a lot, activate it when your opponent declares attack on your attack position Horus, then during the next end phase you can special summon the upgraded version of your current Horus. Use Floodgate Trap Hole when your opponent summons a powerful monster, it will then be stuck in face-down defense position unless an effect changes it's position. This provides an excellent opportunity for your Horus to get a free kill.

Lockdown

With Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8 on the field, you are now practically safe from any spells your opponent might activate as you can immediately negate them. For added control summon Sergeant Electro and pin down your opponent's set spell/trap cards. This will help prevent your Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8 from being hit by a Mirror Wall or a Security Orb.

Dodge effects

After you deal with your opponent's backrow the only threat that remains are monster effects. Effects of monsters like Gale Lizard and Hane-Hane can return you Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8 back to hand, so use Interdimensional Matter Transporter to dodge these effects.

How? Horus cards come from lcyw and sdkr, so does enemy controller, level comes from the collecter boxes. Yu gi oh isn't cheap but this deal reallybisnt that Spendy. It's competitivly irrelevant so...

Would probably add in new card Impenetrable Attack to fortify the Horus. If you are using Restart, you might want to also put in Level Up to speed up the process.

How about removing the metalmorph for a level up? Also, do you think a second level 8 is a good idea?

Actually, I'm running 2 lvl 8's and 3 lvl 6's in my deck. Also with the Kidmodos. It works decent. I suggest to keep metalmorph. It's great for when you have to beat ancient rules BEWD decks, REZD,.. also keep in the chalice. Neat card with a lot of potential. I would replace the WoDs. Or at least one for lvl up. You'll lack speed otherwise. Soul exchange is another tech, just for backup.

This deck is so hyped, but it is not so good as all people think... if you play against a control deck you fucked up, if you play against a mill deck, same... and if you play against a phoenix deck an he uses beatdown skill you also fucked up... tried it many times... its possible to plat 1 or max plat 5, but there is the end of possibilities :/

Horus 3SD all the way to KOG pre CA nerf, you just need to play it right. Nobody even runs mill deck or statue control during my journey to KOG, at most have some weevil with amazon massivemorph.

Use para bros with 3SD and take out all the LV 4 Horus and run 3 LV 6 Horus with one LV 8 . Also 2-3 level ups and then protection cards.

How the hell can level modulation revive Horus lv8? Can other cards do that too or is this card the only exception to Lv8 rules?
<< Anonymous

Modulation can summon any previously summoned level card, it has to have been on the field. Yes any card regardless of summoning conditions
