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.

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.

Replace both Horus Lv4 for something bring out the Horus Lv6 faster, such as Soul Exchange, Hamstrat, etc. Also, you absolutely need to be running Level Up

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...
