  • Eases own tribute summoning.
  • Can send opponent’s monster to the graveyard.


  • Summoning condition is still slow.
  • Reduces own attack when using effect.


  • When summoning a Darklord Desire you can tribute a Darklord Desire on the field that has already spent it’s attack.
  • His effect does not destroy which can bypass some of your opponent’s protection and effect triggers.

Fairy Tokens

Darklord Desire can be Tribute Summoned by using Fairy-type tokens. Here are some cards able to generate this type of token.

Counter Demerit

The 1000 attack loss every time he uses his effect can easily becoming taxing on him. You can use Forbidden Chalice to temporarily negate Darklord Desire’s effect, returning him to his original attack plus an extra 400 attack temporarily. Use Reverse Trap to turn all his lost attack into attack boosts, possibly turning his attack into 6000 at most.

Every darklord player using this to otk, doesn't need a nerf but they really should release more other archtype support to counter simple effects.
This is why language is important in Yugioh, and the reason I love running this card in Darklords. It SENDS your opponent’s monsters to the grave, NOT destroy. Can’t tell you how many times this made a duel for me by cucking my opponents from their destruction protection/floating affects.

I like using this card to get around my opponents monsters that only protect from destruction. They are suddenly dumbfounded when their monster is sent to the graveyard, they retaliate with a hard rage quit.

Best thing is this card doesn't even need to be run in Darklord decks.

Any deck that run Fairies, or has a good way to bring this card out without Fairy or tributing (say, by using Cost Down), can use this card.
How can this card ignore power of guardians effect and send a monster equipped with that cars to graveyard?
I had two spell tokens left on Power of guardians and I hadn't used it's effect that turn, I still couldn't use it's effect.

Because Desire simply "send", not "destroy"
Fallen One
Well as long as you have another level 6 or higher Darklords on field and The Sanctified Darklord trap(s) in your GY, you're pretty much unstoppable
equip this with power of the guardians. good way to get rid of yubel and six sams.
