  • Special Summons 1 Level 4 DARK monster from your Graveyard to your field.
  • Great ATK stats.


  • A big disadvantage as it depends on Spell cards resolution during your opponent’s Main Phase makes this card’s effect activation to be very challenging.
  • This monster requires 2 Tributes to Tribute summon.
  • Special summons a level 4 monster only, not level 4 or lower.


  • If your opponent activates a Spell card during their Main Phase, it also counts as the trigger condition for your Dark Horus to activate its effects.

Speed Summon

Mausoleum of the Emperor allows you to pay 2000 Life Points in order to Normal Summon Dark Horus. Mecha Phantom Beast Hamstrat generates tokens upon flip summon, and Double Coston counts as 2 Tributes when being used for a Tribute Summon of a DARK monster.


Using Transmodify Spell card, you can send Red Eyes Black Dragon to the Graveyard, Special Summon Dark Horus from your Deck.

Quick-play Spells

These are the most viable Quick-Play Spells that can be activated by you during your opponent’s Main Phase, this grants you the activation power instead of waiting for your opponent to use their Spells during Main Phase.

WOW . . . You can either revive Lord of D. or turn this card into a living "Horus Recycling Plant" by reviving your 4 star Horuses...

Oops.. x'D
Cool card with 🔥 effect not worth UR
for example of def ,during enemy turn ,e con tribute your lord of d take control of the monster ,revive your lord of d.
since he revives dark monsters ,reg ult horus keeps enemy spells away tyrent d immunity to some traps ,with lord of d i can imagine an interesting combo .. but need to use skills to draw lord of d. can stall time and fast summoned by using dragon troops +dragon totem kimodo d. etc
maybe with lord of d. flute of sum and the other reg horus monsters, + throw in tyrant d and some def spells and traps like power rebirth and keep lord of d on the field
How is this fake horus becomes UR? I want my Synchros!!!
