How do you search this monster?

Oh shoot, you're right.

I was about to say no, he's a Warrior monster.

Then I read the card and realized that it's actually a Spell caster, which could be a nice little anti-Shiranui tech card.

yeah, but I was looking for a card that I could put in a random deck to search this specific guy out deck. Like to have only 1 copy of Delg in my deck.

All of the "search" tips given there are for decks specialised in high Spellcasters. Not really what I would call generic actually.
This card is nice with Magician's Navigation

Agreed. Alternative for night's end sorcerer with better ATK and bonus mill. Both monsters are better special summoned during opponent's end phase.
Would this guy be good with the new duke the shadow lord card?

Yeah, just nring the current irl mornach over, dpnt worry, they dont use frog.
There was a short amount of time where he was really good as he was the only 2400 attack 6 star in the game (and it was hard to get Summoned Skull). Now, he loses in every way to Chaos Command Magician.

Unless your intention is to Mill, then Derg is still the better one.t
I honestly can't wait to see the original 4 in this game. Just don't give us treeborn and brain control this time.

Do you really think a 6star is good in a mill deck? Jeez :/

Y yes Mr Anon2, this card can very well be a great assistant to mill Decks + some Banish in milling helps more than it hinders.

you gotta lay down a warm worm or other mill flip card and protect it with a feint plan, then flip the card and summon delg. He's an all-star in mill decks.

naw works with hiro because you set activate feint plan then flip and make opp draw 3 than sack for your delg and then you mill and banish 2 warm worm only works when its destroyed
That card is pretty snowball with field spell "Chaos Zone". You can target monsters from opponent's graveyard to add counters on Chaos Zone and then re-summon this guy (and he'll banish cards again) or summon something else.

Deck tech is something like
-Skull Lair
-Millenium ScorpionTemple of the Kings plus mystical beast of Serket
-Soul Absorption
-Something to start Delg's banish like Warm Worm or manually destroy enemy monsters.

Decks like that are EXTREMELLY hard to stop 'cause you just special summon your monsters and enemy ones. But it really hard to get going with that kind of a deck.

You can try to use Chaos End, sometimes it's works and it also can fill your graveyard for skull lair but cards like Dimension Distortion or Chaos Greed are pretty un-usable 'cause it's hard to remove everything from your graveyard (you can do it with Pot of Benevolence. But again, it's extremely hard to pull off but very rewarding).
Nice card to face against Yami Bakura event for Necrofear.
Try against gravekeepers. No effect happened, no attack happened when summoned, and need 1 tribute. Idk what the good point using it
