Set Skill

[Skill] descriptionUser
Phantom Strategy
Send 1 "The Phantom Knights" monster from your hand to the Graveyard. Then, add 1 "Phantom Knights Fog Blade" the very bottom of your Deck from outside of your Deck. During the turm you activate this Skill, you cannot Special Summon Rank 4 or above monsters unless are DARK Warior-Type or DARK Dragon-Type monsters. This Skill can be used if you begin the Duel with a Deck (excluding Extra Deck) that contains no monsters other than DARK Warrior-Type monsters.

This Skill can only be used once per Duel.

How to Play

The Phantom Knights Monsters

The deck's main play involves going into a rank 3 to make Break Sword. The main deck monsters are all level 3 with a search or special summoning effect so you can do this.

With the help of the skill, you can send Cloak (or Gloves -> Cloak) to search for Boots to help with making a rank 3. Alternatively, you can also use Gloves to send Sword or Fog Blade (that's added with the skill) to the grave to special summon a monster from the grave, but it's generally better to add the Fog Blade to hand since it's a useful disruption card.

Once you can make a rank 3, you can go into Break Sword for a card removal effect. Destroying itself will allow you to follow up into a rank 4, becoming Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon or any other rank 4 Xyz like Malevolent Sin.

Just keep in mind that Break Sword can only special summon Phantom Knight monsters, so this isn't an auto combo if you needed to use Kagemucha Knight as a filler. Additionally, if you used the skill, you won't be able to make a generic rank 4 Xyz as a follow-up.

The Phantom Knights of Ancient Cloak
The Phantom Knights of Ancient Cloak
DARK Warrior ★3
ATK 800 / DEF 1000
Phantom of Rebellion [UR]
If this card is in Attack Position: You can target 1 DARK monster on the field; change this card to Defense Position, and if you do, that monster gains 800 ATK and DEF until the end of your opponent's turn. You can banish this card from your Graveyard; add 1 "The Phantom Knights" card from your Deck to your hand, except "The Phantom Knights of Ancient Cloak". You can only use each effect of "The Phantom Knights of Ancient Cloak" once per turn.

Its on-field effect is used if you already have a strong monster on the field and it's to help you beat over high ATK monsters. Together with Ragged Gloves, you can increase a rank 3/4 Xyz monster by +1800 ATK.

The graveyard effect is very useful since you can use it to search for what you need. Boots can special summon itself to help make a rank 3 Xyz, while Gloves is if you already have Boots and have yet to normal summon.

The Phantom Knights of Ragged Gloves
The Phantom Knights of Ragged Gloves
DARK Warrior ★3
ATK 1000 / DEF 500
Yuto at Lvl 10, 18, and 25 [UR]
A DARK Xyz Monster that was Summoned using this card on the field as an Xyz Material gains this effect.

● If it is Xyz Summoned: It gains 1000 ATK.You can banish this card from your Graveyard; send 1 "Phantom Knights" card from your Deck to the Graveyard. You can only use each effect of "The Phantom Knights of Ragged Gloves" once per turn.

Useful in the hand as the monster that's normal summoned with another special summon to make a rank 3 with the ATK boost.

The graveyard effect is pretty versatile since it can send phantom knight's related cards. This ultimately lets you search for a monster/spell through Cloak or Boots, or special summon a monster from the grave by sending a Trap.

The Phantom Knights of Silent Boots
The Phantom Knights of Silent Boots
DARK Warrior ★3
ATK 200 / DEF 1200
Phantom of Rebellion [SR]
If you control a "The Phantom Knights" monster, you can Special Summon this card (from your hand). You can only Special Summon "The Phantom Knights of Silent Boots" once per turn this way. You can banish this card from your Graveyard; add 1 "Phantom Knights" Spell/Trap Card from your Deck to your hand. You can only use this effect of "The Phantom Knights of Silent Boots" once per turn.

Special summonable so you can make a rank 3, or to just be used as sacrifice fodder for your Break Sword's effect. Once it's in the grave, you can search for Fog Blade so you can potentially stop your opponent's plays.

Kagemucha Knight

Kagemucha Knight
Kagemucha Knight
DARK Warrior ★3
ATK 0 / DEF 0
Arts of Atlantis [SR]
When you Normal Summon a Level 3 monster: You can Special Summon this card from your hand. This card cannot be used as a Synchro Material Monster.

Works great as a filler since it's a level 3 with a special summon effect.

Phantom Knight's Wing

Phantom Knights Wing

Normal Trap
The Dark Duelist of Xyz: Yuto! Unlock Event [UR]
Target 1 face-up monster on the field; it gains 500 ATK, also the first time that target would be destroyed by battle or card effect this turn, it is not destroyed. You can banish this card from your Graveyard, then target 1 "The Phantom Knights" monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon it, but banish it when it leaves the field. You can only use this effect of "Phantom Knights' Wing" once per turn.

ATK boost with 500 ATK and 1 time protection from Battle or Card Destruction. It's Grave effect will allows you to revive 1 "The Phantom Knights" monster from your Graveyard by banishing itself which can helps for getting another Xyz Summon with 1 other Phantom Knights monster.

Phantom Knight's Sword

Phantom Knights Sword
Phantom Knights Sword
Continuous Trap
Yuto Unlock Event [UR]
Activate this card by targeting 1 face-up monster on the field; it gains 800 ATK, also if that target would be destroyed by battle or card effect, you can destroy this card instead. When it leaves the field, destroy this card. You can banish this card from your Graveyard, then target 1 "The Phantom Knights" monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon it, but banish it when it leaves the field. You can only use this effect of "Phantom Knights' Sword" once per turn.

Can protect your monster or as a damage calculation trap to catch your opponent's off guard. Additionally, it can also be used in the grave to special summon a Phantom Knights monster in your grave.

You can reliably send this to the grave with Gloves or add it to the hand with Boots.

Tech Cards

Book of Moon
Book of Moon
Quick Spell
Chaotic Soldiers [UR]
Selection Box Vol.04 [UR]
Target 1 face-up monster on the field; change that target to face-down Defense Position.

Useful disruption tool to stop your opponent, but can also be used on your own monsters to avoid certain cards like Karma Cut or Floodgate Trap Hole.

Forbidden Lance
Forbidden Lance
Quick Spell
Valhalla Calling [UR]
Selection Box Vol. 02 Mini [UR]
Target 1 face-up monster on the field; until the end of this turn, that target loses 800 ATK, but is unaffected by the effects of other Spell/Trap Cards.

To avoid getting interrupted by your opponent, also decent as a damage step card since the ATK reduction is pretty big.

Extra Decks

Trishula, the Dragon of Icy Imprisonment
Trishula, the Dragon of Icy Imprisonment
WATER Dragon ★9
ATK 2700 / DEF 2000
Arena of Sanctuary [UR]
3 monsters with different names
Must first be either Fusion Summoned using only monsters in your hand and/or field, or Special Summoned (from your Extra Deck) by banishing the above cards you control (in which case you do not use "Polymerization"). If this card was Special Summoned using only monsters that were originally Dragons: You can reveal and banish 3 cards (1 from your Deck, 1 from the top of your opponent's Deck, and 1 from their Extra Deck). You can only use this effect of "Trishula, the Dragon of Icy Imprisonment" once per turn.

When summoned, Trishula's only purpose would be as a beater. The main reason you would want to make him is to unclog your field, removing monsters afflicted with negative effects such as Floodgate Trap Hole.

The Phantom Knights of Break Sword
The Phantom Knights of Break Sword
DARK Warrior ★3
ATK 2000 / DEF 1000
Phantom of Rebellion [SR]
2 Level 3 monsters
Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 card you control and 1 card your opponent controls; destroy them. If this Xyz Summoned card is destroyed: You can target 2 "The Phantom Knights" monsters with the same Level in your Graveyard; Special Summon them and increase their Levels by 1, also you cannot Special Summon monsters for the rest of this turn, except DARK monsters.

The main starter boss of the deck. It has a card removal effect that almost works like Diamond Dire Wolf and a rank-up effect that works differently than just adding a higher rank on top of it.

You can use its effect to destroy your other Phantom Knight card so you can activate them in the graveyard, or simply destroy itself so you can bring back 2 Phantom Knights monsters so you can Xyz into a rank 4.

It's recommended to go after backrows first since it will be a huge problem if the monsters you special summoned get stopped by something like Floodgate Trap Hole or even Book of Moon.

Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon
Dark Rebellion Xyz Dragon
DARK Dragon ★4
ATK 2500 / DEF 2000
Phantom of Rebellion [UR]
2 Level 4 monsters
You can detach 2 Xyz Materials from this card, then target 1 face-up monster your opponent controls; its ATK becomes half its current ATK, and if it does, this card gains that lost ATK.

Its effect essentially lets you deal 2500 (its own ATK) damage if this attacks the monster you targeted. The advantage is that your opponent's monster's ATK is also lowered, allowing you to attack over it with your other weaker monsters.

Dante, Traveler of the Burning Abyss
Dante, Traveler of the Burning Abyss
DARK Fiend ★3
ATK 1000 / DEF 2500
Fantastic Arc [UR]
2 Level 3 monsters
Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card and choose a number from 1 to 3, then send that many cards from the top of your Deck to the Graveyard; until the end of this turn, this card gains 500 ATK for each card sent to the Graveyard this way. If this card attacks, it is changed to Defense Position at the end of the Battle Phase. If this card is sent to the Graveyard: You can target 1 "Burning Abyss" card in your Graveyard, except this card; add it to your hand.

One of the better Xyz to go into if you get first turn since you want to detach a PK card to activate in the grave, which you can't do with Break Sword if your opponent isn't using any skill that puts a card on their field.

There aren't any other synergy since there aren't any Burning Abyss in the deck, so it's not a safe monster to just summon and end the turn on. You'll want to make sure you can at least get Boots into the grave so you can add Fog Blade to your hand.

Number 47: Nightmare Shark
Number 47: Nightmare Shark
WATER Fish ★3
ATK 2000 / DEF 2000
Reginald Kastle Unlock Event [UR]
2 Level 3 monsters
When this card is Special Summoned: You can attach 1 Level 3 WATER monster from your hand or your side of the field to this card as an Xyz Material. Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 WATER monster you control; this turn, that monster can attack your opponent directly, also other monsters cannot attack.

Lets you bypass difficult monsters and deal 2000 damage. Great as a finisher or against stall decks.

Leviair the Sea Dragon
Leviair the Sea Dragon
WIND Sea Serpent ★3
ATK 1800 / DEF 1600
Voltage of the Metal [UR]
2 Level 3 monsters
Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 banished Level 4 or lower monster; Special Summon that target to your side of the field.

Can let you extend your combo so you can perform 2 rank 3 Xyz in a turn.

Number 70: Malevolent Sin
Number 70: Malevolent Sin
DARK Insect ★4
ATK 2400 / DEF 1200
Photons of Galaxy [SR]
2 Level 4 monsters
Once per turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 monster your opponent controls; banish it until your opponent's next Standby Phase. At the end of the Damage Step, if this card attacked: You can make this card gain 300 ATK, and if you do, increase its Rank by 3.

Works great when your opponent only has 1 monster on the field, potentially giving you an OTK chance. Also works well against Xyz monsters since this will remove their materials.

Keep in mind that if you use the skill, you can't use Break Sword's effect to special summon 2 PK to the field to Xyz into this because of the skill's restriction. But on any other turn, this is a pretty great combo since you can use Break Sword to destroy a backrow and then follow it up with Malevolent Sin to banish your opponent's monster so you can attack directly.

Noted By Morandos:

Phantom Knights love to break boards and use your opponent's strong monsters against them going second with protection from forbidden lance and cosmic cyclone. As well as a strong going first setup with 2-3 backrow including fog blade, and amazing follow up for turn 3.

Can't believe they took 1 PK glove from the deck this fast.

Literally unplayable.

Seems like I have to go get the third copy Kagemucha now as a replacement for Glove. But still... digging the third time in that terrible box is a no go for me, and I dont really wanna use my SR dream ticket for it either. If its going to be replaced with torn scales and stained grieves eventually.

"It IS still tiered. Take a look at any Duel Links tier list. The Japanese one (Kamigame) even puts it in the highest tier, together with D/D/D.
PKs are still really good."

Why tf am I always playin second every single game against this trash deck ??? Why r they always hving 3 backrows n 2 monsters turn one, while I hv 3 cyclones in my deck n none coming ever in my hand when I face this ? If u were still not aware of it, the rng of this game is nothing but a rigged scam 100% n is anything but givin the starting hands or first turn randomly. Its not random ! They do It for makin u win/lose from start.
N why the heck do u allow (as usual) a stupid cheating skill that alllows them to hv an effect negator turn one every game ? This is favoritism, n this skill has to be banned RN. Tyvm
No skill should hv an effect negator turn one that screws the opponent plays every time u dont hv cyclone or lance on hand

A deck that can search a fiendish chain that has also a use while in gy. A deck that all its monsters are a guarantee +1 when they are in gy. A deck that can easily make 2 monsters + 3 set on turn one or just in turn 2. And you compare pk with magnets...

I'll be honest with ya at this moment with this stupid eternal meta we have had to endure I'd rather take 2 or 3 decks that shake the entire meta and ladder over yet another rogue deck that'll have to bear with being sodomized by the same decks as always

They just need to decently nerd top tier decks so they are at the same level and the current rogue tier. Everyone happy = GG

I consistently get KoG with Photons as a “rogue” deck, and that’s perfectly fine with me. Most players in DL are too dumb to read card effects thus not knowing hot to play around less used decks. They just know “Me always click yes, me ignore ignore opponent monster effect and attack.”

I tested some and I think the combo version is very strong. Atleast 2 pops plus 3 monsters on board.

This deck is gonna stay in the meta for a while.
