Noble Knight monsters usually have the own set of useful effects, but this build will include the most relevant Noble Knight monsters to be used in conjunction with their Noble Arms Spells. The fastest combo is to Normal Summon Noble Knight Medraut, equip it with any Noble Arms, and Special Summon Noble Knight Drystan to the Field in Defense mode. This deck has options to either obtain Noble Arms - Arfeudutyr to allow your Noble Knight monsters to destroy set cards, or to get Noble Arms of Destiny for protection. The main strength of this deck is to utilize Noble Knight Drystan’s effect to destroy any face-up card, when it is equipped with any Noble Arms equip Spell.
Equip Noble Knight Borz with a “Noble Arms” Equip Spell Card in order to be able to activate its effect. During your Main Phase, Noble Knight Borz allows you to reveal 3 “Noble Arms” cards from your Deck, have your opponent randomly add 1 of them to your hand while the rest are sent to the Graveyard.
You can reveal 3 copies of Gwenhwyfar, Queen of Noble Arms via Noble Knight Borz’s effect and then equip Gwenhwyfar from the Graveyard to a “Noble Knight” monster you control.
You can equip Gwenhwyfar, Queen of Noble Arms to a “Noble Knight” monster you control from your hand or Graveyard, which means that, even if it is destroyed, you will still have it available. You can use Gwenhwyfar, Queen of Noble Arms to enable the effects of your “Noble Knight” monsters more consistently, since, unlike Noble Arms - Gallatin, Noble Arms of Destiny and Glory of the Noble Knights, it cannot be negated by Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En.
Gwenhwyfar, Queen of Noble Arms will increase the ATK of the monster it’s equipped to by 300. Additionally, if it’s equipped to a LIGHT monster (Noble Knight Drystan), Gwenhwyfar, Queen of Noble Arms will allow you to prevent it from being destroyed by battle or card effect by destroying Gwenhwyfar instead and, if it’s a DARK monster (Noble Knight Medraut and Noble Knight Borz), at the start of the Damage Step, you will be able to destroy a monster that battles with the equipped monster and then destroy Gwenhwyfar.
When it’s Normal Summoned, Noble Knight Brothers allows you to Special Summon up to 2 “Noble Knight” monsters from your hand. Since the space on the field is quite limited, you are not going to be using this effect that often. Keep in mind that, if you use Noble Knight Brothers’ effect to Special Summon Noble Knight Medraut from your hand, you will not be able to activate the latter’s effect and Special Summon Noble Knight Drystan or Borz from your Deck.
Once per turn, Noble Knight Brothers allow you to shuffle back into the Deck 3 “Noble Knight” and/or “Noble Arms” cards in your Graveyard and then draw 1 card.
You can shuffle any “Noble Arms” Equip Spell in your Graveyard back into your Deck, draw 1 card and then use Glory of the Noble Knights to equip it to a “Noble Knight” monster you control or use Noble Knight Brothers’ effect to return all copies of Gwenhwyfar, Queen of Noble Arms to your Deck, draw 1 card and then activate Noble Knight Borz’s to add 1 copy of Gwenhwyfar to your hand and send the others to the Graveyard.
You can also use Noble Knight Brothers’ effect to return Noble Knight Drystan or Borz to your Deck and then Special Summon them via Noble Knight Medraut’s effect.
This deck allows you to manipulate your starting hand in such a way that, you will most likely open with either Noble Knight Medraut or Noble Knight Drystan. If you have Noble Knight Medraut, you can Normal Summon Noble Knight Medraut and equip it with any Noble Arms spell, and Special Summon Noble Knight Drystan from your Deck in DEF mode. If you have Noble Knight Drystan in your Hand, simply Normal Summon him to the Field. The goal is to have Noble Knight Drystan on the Field as soon as possible.
Both of these cards are Quick-Play Spells, which means you can either use them on your turn or set them to be used during your opponent’s turn. This gives your Noble Knight Drystan great advantage because you can equip Noble Arms to him during your opponent’s turn to destroy your opponent’s card. However, bear in mind you can only use Noble Knight Drystan’s effect once during either player’s turn.
In order to use Noble Arms’ effects efficiently, you have to understand what each of them does, and which are more suitable to be used in which situation. All Noble Arms have the effects of re-equipping themselves to any Noble Knight monster you choose, when they were destroyed and sent to the Graveyard, in other words, you can keep destroying them with card effects and they will still be re-equipped as long as there are Noble Knight monsters. You can only control 1 of each Noble Arms on the Field. Generally Noble Arms of Destiny is the most used because of its ability to protect your Noble Knight from being destroyed by battle or card effects, for 1 time. You can use Noble Arms - Arfeudutyr if your opponent plays backrow heavy decks, however the ATK loss is permanent even if you remove Noble Arms - Arfeudutyr from your Field. Noble Arms - Caliburn is a general ATK boost and Healing card, Noble Arms - Gallatin provides powerful ATK boost but you will have to end the duel fast to avoid too much ATK losses each turn.
This card has a good effect to send any Noble Arms card from your Deck to the Graveyard. This effect works well with Swords of Dawn, however it does not fit well in this deck as the search engine uses Glory of the Noble Knights.
Balance is the best skill to be used in this deck because you will have a high chance to have 1 Noble Knight monster and 3 Spell cards in your starting hand.
Since Noble Knight decks generally does not have strong draw power, it relies mostly on protection tech cards in conjunction with their Noble Arms’ effects, to steadily destroy their opponent’s cards and monsters. You can consider using Enemy Controller or Super Rush Headlong as additional protection.
