Master of Destiny
When you toss a coin, the results will always be heads for the first 3 coin tosses.
This Skill can only activate if you begin the duel with a deck that has 7 or more cards with different names that require coin tosses.

How to Play

Cup of Ace (Pot of Greed)

Cup of Ace
Cup of Ace
Normal Spell
Standard Duelist [N]
Toss a coin:
● Heads: Draw 2 cards.
● Tails: Your opponent draws 2 cards.

Master of Destiny literally turns Cup of Ace into Pot of Greed, drastically increasing this Deck’s consistency and allowing you to pretty reliably draw into cards like Neos Fusion, Cyberdark Cannon and Desperado Barrel Dragon.

Desperado Barrel Dragon

DARK Machine ★8
ATK 2800 / DEF 2200
Full Metal Desperado [UR]
If a face-up DARK Machine monster(s) you control is destroyed by battle or card effect: You can Special Summon this card from your hand. Once per turn, during the Battle Phase (Quick Effect): You can toss a coin 3 times; destroy face-up monsters on the field, up to the number of Heads, then if the result is 3 heads, draw 1 card. This card cannot attack the turn this effect is activated. If this card is sent to the GY: You can add 1 Level 7 or lower monster that has a coin tossing effect, from your Deck to your hand.

If a face-up DARK Machine monster you control is destroyed by battle or card effect, you can Special Summon Desperado Barrel Dragon from your hand. Basically. if anything happens to your Cyberdark Edge, Cyberdark Horn, Twin-Barrel Dragon or even another Desperado Barrel Dragon, aside from being returned to the hand (Steelswarm Mothand Six Style - Dual Wield) or banished (Subterror Behemoth Umastryx), you can fall back on this Level 8 monster.

Once per turn, during the Battle Phase, Desperado Barrel Dragon allows you to toss a coin 3 times and then destroy face-up monsters on the field up to the number of Heads. Desperado Barrel Dragon’s effect does not target, which means that Red-Eyes Slash Dragon cannot negate it and, if you happen to encounter somebody playing Hazy Flame, they are probably going to have a bad time. Note that Desperado Barrel Dragon doesn’t have to destroy itself or another one of your monsters, unlike Gatling Dragon, if there aren’t enough targets on your opponent’s side of the field.

If Desperado Barrel Dragon is sent to the Graveyard, it allows you to add a Level 7 or lower monster from your Deck to your hand that has a coin-tossing effect. You can use this effect to search Twin-Barrel Dragon, Ms. Judge, Time Wizard or Arcana Force XIV - Temperance.

Skill Suggestion

Master of Destiny can give you a huge advantage early on by turning unreliable cards like Cup of Ace and Time Wizard into consistent and pretty unfair instruments.

[May 2020] KOG Notes

IIINC


DesperadoIIINCDesperado IIINC2
IGN: IIINC, Skill: Master of Destiny, Date Submitted: May 8

Note by IIINC:

The three main targets to negate against the new D/D decks are D/D Swirl Slime, Dark Contract with the Swamp King, and D/D Nighthowl. Negating these targets can completely nullify and exhaust D/D decks.

As for Malefics, there are plenty of moments in your opponent’s turn to throw a wrench in their Special Summoning, field spell, or continuous spell. Aim to exhaust your opponents.

Ace


DesperadoAceDesperado Ace2
IGN: Ace, Skill: Master of Destiny, Date Submitted: May 25

Note by Ace:

My 2nd KOG with this deck.

The key to winning with this deck is knowing when to negate a card effect and not being afraid to discard Desperado Barrel Dragon when you activate Rebirth of Parshath. If you don't have any machine monsters to normal summon to the field who can activate a special summon of DBD when they're destroyed, he's useless. Just send him to graveyard and pick a monster who can help you with your next move.

Opponents monster zone full? Get Time wizard to destroy them all. Want to attack next turn after you negated a monster effect but opponent has set cards in spell/trap zone? Get Ms.Judge. Just think carefully and pick the right monster for the situation you're facing when sending DBD to the graveyard.

No, they've been knocked off the tier list completely after Master of Destiny Skill got nerfed + Neos Fusion and Clash got semi-limited.

no but desperado and spider are useful cards for machine decks

The deck is still fun. You can play with parshath engine and use dark illusion to protect from targeting. Also you can use Super Team buddy force unite in cyberdark version to drop desperado into the GY and summon it from there.

You've got a tuner in the Orcust version so you may as well add some synchros even if youll likely not get the chance to use them. Armades, Vermilion Dragon Mech, Giganticastle and maybe another level 5 synchro with a situational effect

Only problem is that using any of the Orcust monster effects locks you into dark monsters. You could wait a turn but chances are those monsters won’t survive. Only notable one I found was Samsara Dragon of Rebirth.

still super powerful.

This deck (especially neos fusion version) is hella annoying. But I did find a way around it using stardust dragon. Summon him defense position (to avoid drowning mirror force) first turn and you should be alright for most of the duel to get your good combos out...

1st) Stardust only has 2k DEF. He won't survive a regular attack from a Desperado or an equipped Cyberdark
2nd) Stardust CAN'T negate Desperado because the destruction isn't guaranteed.

Don't listen to this troll, guys!

3) you can't summon Stardust Dragon because he is Synchro Monster unless you Synchro summon it

I’m trying to still use it, but I’m probably gonna drop it soon. GraveKeepers screw it over and it’s become a lot more inconsistent thanks to the recent hits

Yes its true the meta has changed a bit.. Now there is also Cocytus, and other cards that arent really hurt by Desperado.
Tackrad
well the banlist will make it harder for neos hybrids and use of Legacy Clash, the question is whats gonna be the 2 other coin flip cards

It can brick hard by opening with Neos and Cyberdark Edge. Leaving you only weak monsters and dead cards in hand

Can someone explain why when my opponents desperado destroys mine edge with its effect why I can’t summon my desperado from my hand ? Edge is a machine dark monster it’s face up and is being destroyed by a card effect so why can’t I summon desperado???

Did you use Neos Fusion before that? It locks you out of special summoning when you activate it
<< Anonymous

Based on which effect, after I summon neos with fusion and my turn ends my opponent uses desperado I use neos affect from graveyard then he kills my edge shouldn’t I be able to summon desperado since it’s his turn after the turn I summoned neos or does the neos affect from the graveyard stop special summons as well?

Because Desperado’s destruction effect is based on luck.

The end phase is still your turn- abd Neos Fusion’s lockout effect is still in effect during that time

Yeah, it's definitely a typo from the Gamea staff that wrote the above article.
Created in Ancient Egypt
Maybe it's because a turn lasts about an hour
I'm still learning - I guess it has to face up for the effect to work then.
