Dark World Synergy

These are the 3 key cards in a standard Dark World deck that has powerful draw and search ability. Snoww, Unlight of Dark World can be discarded to search for any Dark World card from your Deck to your Hand, including The Gates of Dark World.

Ceruli, Guru of Dark World can be discarded to be Special Summoned to your opponent’s Field, then it will allow you to discard either Reign-Beaux, Overlord of Dark World or Snoww to your Graveyard in order to activate their respective effects.

Dark World Dealings can be used to discard 1 Dark World monster and then draw another card, which also serves as setup to use The Gates of Dark World.


Escape from the Dark Dimension can be used to Special Summon Dark World monsters that were banished. Call of the Archfiend can be used to Special Summon Reign-Beaux from your Graveyard to the Field.

CERULI IS BROKEN, as in glitched. He doesn't appear on the opponent's side of the field anymore! He appears on my side

yeah, the above post was made like, a year ago back when it IS bugged. It's fixed already now, but I still remember the time when it is bugged.
is this worth investing for call of the archfiend?

Hmmmm, Ok, if I would like to play with a DW deck, what do I need - buy: 3x Primal Burst to get UR Snoww and UR DW lightning, then 3x Valiant Souls to get UR DW Dealings, then 2x BOX 14 to get the UR field spell + I need some other cards (trap/spell) from other Boxes ... so, I need like 50k gems + luck or a hell lot of money.
my summoned skull finally got 2800 atk
Because it has good synergy with "Dark World" monsters (which normally relies on discarding cards through card effect) and you don't lose card advantage, to top it off it gives a nice 300 boost to all fiend types
Why UR?
Nice, 1 new DW card as UR on a big box. Pay not to win but to get your 🔥 kicked.

Brick City deck, it's trash
His name says he's a Dragon. But it's actually a Sea Serpent, I guess they didn't...
