How to use

Search cards

Gozuki is quite versatile in a zombie deck, especially when you run multiple copies of him. He can be use to send zombie-type monsters from deck to the graveyard where they can easily be revived or, if you have a zombie-type monster in your graveyard that isn't Gozuki, you can send another Gozuki to the graveyard to activate his effect and special summon a zombie-type monster from your hand. Both of Gozuki's effects will help you get Red-Eyes Zombie Dragon out on the field. Goblin Zombie will primarily be used to search Gozuki, but can also be used to search another Goblin Zombie to mill down your deck. Red-Eyes Insight searches for Red-Eyes Spirit and sends Red-Eyes Zombie Dragon to the graveyard, making it practically a free Red-Eyes Zombie Dragon summon when you revive him with the Red-Eyes Spirit you added to hand.

Special summon Red-Eyes Zombie Dragon

Red-Eyes Zombie Dragon and is basically a 2400 attack beatstick, but unlike other beatsticks with similar or more attack, Red-Eyes Zombie Dragon is very well supported belonging to at least two archtypes, namely zombies and red-eyes. Because of this, there are many ways in which he can be summoned. You can special summon him form your hand with the effect of Gozuki, or revive him from the grave with Red-Eyes Wyvern or Red-Eyes Spirit. You can also tribute summon him with one zombie-type monster, if summoned this way using Gozuki as tribute will allow you to use Gozuki's effect to special summon another zombie-type monster from your hand, or by using Goblin Zombie as tribute for tribute summoning allows you to search your deck.

Chain spell/traps

All spell/trap cards in this deck can be chained with one another. Knowing this, you can use Storm on spell/trap cards you set the turn before like Enemy Controller and Red-Eyes Spirit then chaining them to get all their effects out.

Handling stronger monsters

Heavy Knight of the Flame, Enemy Controller and Super Rush Headlong are teched into this deck to deal with monsters stronger than your Red-Eyes Zombie Dragon.

  • Instead of destroying your opponent's monster by battle, you can use Heavy Knight of the Flame or Super Rush Headlong to destroy them with card effects. Heavy Knight of the Flame when re-summoned, destroys any special summoned monster that he battles. Which is great since most decks special summon their strongest monsters. Super Rush Headlong allows a monster to immediately destroy any monster of an attribute you declare, and it is a quick play spell making it good for offense and defense.
  • Enemy Controller changes the battle position of your opponent's monsters. For monsters with both high attack and defense points (e.g. Blue-Eyes White Dragon) use Enemy Controller's second effect to take control of it for this turn, then set up for a direct attack.

It's been a good deck for a long time, but the last 2 months saw some insane powercreep.
Is this deck still tier 1? Maybe I run it wrong but lack of back row control seems to be an issue. Storm just doesn't cut it often enough.

the bigger problem is its lack of answers to sylvans since when you play that match unless you draw sylvan counter cards early the only thing you can do is let mushroom pop and hope for the best

or who knows maybe you're just playing the example deck this site gives so it doesn't work

Probably just wasn't using storm right. Always felt like giving up my stuff to activate it hurt too much. Have an easier time with aliens bc it is more forgiving if I miss a play.

Honestly I had the same issue with Storm. Replaced it with Anti-Magic Arrows and it honestly works smoother for me. I do not aspire to be world champ and AMA just works better for me. Always easy Legend.

This deck is can do OTK If u get the 1st turn when you activate RE Insight and set RE spirit then norm. Summon Gozuki then activate the effect and set 1 Wall of D/ Etaqua/ Super Rush for protection. Gozuki ATK: 1700 + REZD: 2400=4100 + Anti-Magic Arrows to shut down the backrows

That's only if your opponent literally does nothing on his turn
Hi guys I love beating CA players using this deck.
I wish Super Joey would come back. I wish Pegasus event would as well. Kind of getting annoyed of event repeats every other week.

Yeah, we need Super Joey back. He's the one who dropped Red-Eyes Spirit and Red-Eyes Insight, right? Some of us here would really appreciate a way to get them that doesn't involve SR Ranked Ticket.
Is it ok to have 2 gozuki and 2 samurai skull and 1 red wyvern?

Thanks dude
I almost finished the REZD, it runs smoothly as I expected, though it dropped to tier 2, still this looks good on farming.
P.S. there is no perfect deck. :)
NNNNNOOOOOOOOO!!!!! I was about to finish this deck. Why?!! Now tier 2?. I hate this game i spend many gems to finish this deck.

Honestly what Gamea consider as tier 2 is still fine for reaching KOG.

Gamea's definition of tier 2 is that it has more counters than tier 1 deck, but your opponent must draw them early.

It can be tier 1 but with the current meta you need at least 2 cyclone galaxy for aliens and ssa.

But w.e you can believe me or not I don't really care Rerolling and a little luck gets you quite the head start, you get quite some SR tickets starting out as well... so no clue what you are talking about that I could only have 3 SR tickets max..... it was my first week I got 6+ of em >.>
