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.

Horus The Black Flame Dragon LV 6 can be tribute summoned pretty easily my boys, then attack any of your monsters using beatdown. Forget about any spells like "Super Trash Headlong", "Enemy Controller", and any other spell that'll target him, better yet play the spell card "Anti-Magic Arrows", and if not "Trap Jammer" to make sure you'll attack into any monster under 2600-2500 ATK. Mirage Dragon is a monster that will stop your backrow Traps on the field in battle phase, but I don't prefer that strategy, I prefer something more consistent and very aggressive. I'm never stuck in the past, it would be foolish to say that of your ignorance to see through me. You can't, I'm saying you will not because, I only show you what I may. You better get the jist of it my boy because, you're hiding your name, while I, am not. So if you won't man up, I'll be aggressive another to kick your ass my boy. Doesn't matter what you play, I'll have a strategy that will be even better. Aggressive plays, Deck Thinning, Boss Monsters, Counter Cards, and simply all composing a good deck.

I didn't even need to use Horus LV 8 to counter CA, I simply beat CA without using any Horus cards. Although Saffira did come out and discard HorusLV8 at the end of the turn. I had a game winning combo on the 3rd turn. pretty, easy, if I do say so. If Dcay doesn't care for the strat, why should I even be helping the Meta? One who founded should properly speak out. I don't mean to sound repetitive.

And for those people who want to 'cuc' CA like a real cuccer, have your opening hand be Horus LV 6, Double Summon, Flame Tiger, and a LV up card, doesn't matter what you draw next. Fully counters CA with that hand. And if Horus LV 8 gets destroyed. Special summon Flame Tiger from the grave whenever Horus gets destroyed and hope you have what you need in hand because, the only thing that'll...

counter Horus out on the field with CA, if someone tilted the deck itself, with Man-Eater Bug. Except your opponent(which'll be me)is able to draw a card before activation, all you would need is Card Guard or even that Flame Tiger in grave(with field clear). Spec. Sum. that and tribute for another Horus LV 6 and then attack again. Level up. Another Horus LV 8 special summoned. What will you do thn

I don't really like the strat that is "working" with the one that is on the sight. Being more original will have more effect upon who you are facing and who you are not. A true leader shows his leadership while he's not around. Same goes with the deck tier lists, whoever created each one honestly should feel proud, because, I literally have to prove myself, lol, and wt..?f hahaha, I won't for any1

Consistency comes through deck thinning, spell and trap usage, and having monsters on the field. All can and may be accomplished with any deck of sort. All that matters is the combos in the deck. Anti Magic Arrows cannot turn a face up trap back face down because people who have mastered SSA will play it before the battle phase(most of the time). And if you would like to counter any type of deck(Sylvans:play Ultimate Providance, E-con, maybe Floodgate to counter the whole entire deck, CA:play the same thing, SSA: use Wild T, or Cosmic Cyclone to remove backrow, Aliens: all you need is good monster combos). The 'Meta' is typically easy to counter, even all the Meta Has counters to counter their own decks(Ulti. Prov., E-con, and etc. I will much rather keep the deck a secret until finishing touches are made. There will for sure be different versions to counter different Meta for example, you don't want to get tilted by playing Storm with Wild T and then dead draw any other spell or trap like Econ or Floodgate. I would like the deck to first be on a Meta weekly channel and possibly known for a maximum counter to CA, but its dependent upon what your opponent plays and what you got(like any other normal duel). But... When I first posted about a CA counter deck with Horus, people weren't able to believe or even have a little hope, I automatically got disrespected. That is why I'll keep this a secret and I won't get to KoG to share the deck till I have a legit conversation with Dcay, one who helped the disrespect while disrespecting someone who would and could help the community while introducing a new "Meta" like deck. Could be technically tier 0 except with bricks, maybe some changes to the deck could be in order. Besides that, the deck is simple, complete, and practically "God-like". I will simply make it better and then share the deck, when I feel like it, when I get the respect first.

And, also, three Lv Up cards won't be valuable to the deck for the inconsistancy of how many bigger boss monsters you may have in your deck, like, leading to dead draws, bricks(with the RNG), and the pros of it may look like a upsider but to find more supportive cards help Horus A LOT more. but yes, good strategy though. I do like the originality of your deck though. Dislike to see Silent Magician

No anti-magic arrows, it would be pathetic to think that. Use Spiritualism and it would only be for certain needs, Anti-Magic arrows work for an backrow besides one card that is ALready FACE up. Anti-Magic would be for SSA bluff. Much sense made.

Using metalmorph would be viable, I have used the card in my decks before. Would help out your Horus Lv4 to destroy any monster that would possibly have 3000 or more attack points. 1600+300+half of the defending monster= you destroying that monster, throw in an Anti-Magic arrow to be safe, yeah sure. Good advice.

I don't know what you're talking about. AMA WILL stop SSA from working during battle phase. I saw it in a replay, then tried it myself and found that it works. All I can say is try it out yourself if you don't believe me.
Ayyy, just no-One 11days ago
No spells may be activated, forget about polymerization, ritual summoning CA, and all above any spell that isn't on the field already except there's the card Spiritualism. Not anyone can just use this perfection of a deck but only the ones who masters it. Of course every deck cannot win every time, but it's all within the cards, mostly, your deck. Be original. Think ahead.

Man, there's a reason Horus isn't a commonly used deck, and it isn't because you've come upon some miraculous strategy nobody else has ever thought of. It's inconsistent, and there are a lot of outs to it. IF it gets set up and the opponent can't out it, you're in a good spot. But that goes for any deck, many of which do it faster or more consistently.

As of now, even if you can get out Horus Lv8 early, your victory still can't be guaranteed. Sylvan decks can clear your whole field without playing a single spell. Sea Sealth Attack is a trap. If Geargia catches on, those are effect monsters who destroy stuff too. Dino decks start with Jurassic World (thus can't be negated), and if you can't defend yourself well, Black Brachios can do you in.

Aliens use spells, but they don't need it exclusively. You're finished if they managed to put A-counters on you and bust out Brainwashing Beam. Horus Lv8 could negate the Aroma Garden for Aromage decks... but only if you get out Horus Lv8 first. All they need is to draw one of their 3 Aroma Garden, but you'd need a bit more than that to get out Horus Lv8.

Don't get me wrong... I'm not saying that Horus deck can't win ever, but it's important to acknowledge that the odds are stacked against you, and why.

Dark Horus, though honestly, it doesn't accomplish a whole lot here aside from being a "target" for Kidmodo. Reviving Card Guard when the opponent uses a Spell doesn't seem massively useful.

This is my one, the back row can be changed and the heavy knight can be replaced another Horus

My win rate against Cyber Angels, in all its "glory", is every time I go up against the deck man. You could be running better strategy in the deck instead of all this mess they have on the forum. Yes, it may give you an L sometimes, the forum deck cannot win up against the Top Tier Meta. You'll win up against what you counter.

This one Daniel.. Same goes to Slash Dragon Fusion.

Bring 1 "The Earth - Hex Sealed Fusion" monster just in case they can get lvl 8 horus first.

says quote on quote 'budget' when example deck uses multiple mirror walls, electro's, floodgates, and expects budget players to receive a few Horus's, how funny? Their 'budget' deck is opinionated into what they perceive as budget when honestly, a correct built Horus deck with clever original strategy is better to use and will receive more and more wins.

Just a matter of luck and or time. Haven't dropped a dime on the game and just trying to get flame timer(s) and caninetaur to finish hazy and I came away with 4x ananta, 2x houras 8, 2x flood. 4x hours 6 and 1 to 3 of most of the other UR/SR. Even got 2 elec off the recent selection box. Again all for free. Yes budget probably should make an attempt at some alternatives suggestion.
