How to Play

Neos Fusion & Elemental HERO Brave Neos

Activate Neos Fusion and send Elemental HERO Neos and Leng Ling from your Deck, hand or field to the Graveyard to Special Summon Elemental HERO Brave Neos. You should always activate Neos Fusion before using Cup of Ace, otherwise, you might end up drawing these cards.

Elemental HERO Brave Neos gains 100 ATK for each “Neo-Spacian” and “HERO” monster in your Graveyard, which means that, on Summon, it will have enough ATK to get over Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En and Dragon Spirit of White.

When Elemental HERO Brave Neos destroys an opponent's monster by battle, it allows you to add 1 Spell/Trap from your Deck to your hand that specifically lists the card “Elemental HERO Neos” in its text. You can use Elemental HERO Brave Neos’s effect to add another copy of Neos Fusion or even Miracle Contact to your hand. If Elemental HERO Brave Neos would be destroyed by battle or card effect, you can banish Neos Fusion from your Graveyard instead.

Pot of Greed (Cup of Ace)

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.

Dekoichi the Battlechanted Locomotive

When Dekoichi is flipped face-up, it draws you a card. Now, if your opponent attacks your face-down Dekoichi, you draw Desperado Barrel Dragon and Dekoichi is destroyed by that battle, do you think it’s possible to Special Summon Desperado? Yes, because your monster was destroyed and sent to the Graveyard after Desperado was drawn. Between Dekoichi, Card of the Soul and Cup of Ace, having Desperado in your hand when you need it is almost never going to be an issue.

Desperado Barrel Dragon

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.

Cyberdark Cannon

You can discard Cyberdark Cannon to add any of the three Machine-Type Level 4 “Cyberdark” monsters from your Deck to the hand. Add Cyberdark Edge (or Cyberdark Horn) to your hand, Normal Summon it and then equip it with Cyberdark Cannon.

During damage calculation, if a monster equipped with Cyberdark Cannon battles, you can send a monster from your Deck to the Graveyard. If you don’t have Neos Fusion available, you can use this effect to send Leng Ling to the Graveyard.

Cyberdark Edge & Cyberdark Horn

When these monsters are Normal Summoned, you can target a Level 3 Dragon-Type monster in your Graveyard (Leng Ling or Cyberdark Cannon) and equip it to them; Cyberdark Edge and Cyberdark Horn gain ATK equal to the original ATK of the monster equipped to them by this effect. If Cyberdark Edge is equipped with Leng Ling, it will reach 2500 ATK while retaining its ability to attack your opponent directly.

When they are equipped with a monster by their own effect, instead of being destroyed by battle, Cyberdark Edge and Horn destroy the monster equipped to them instead, which will trigger Cyberdark Cannon’s effect and draw you a card.

Additional Notes

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 5 or more cards with different names that require coin tosses.

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.

Opening with 5000 Life Points means that Card of the Soul can be used to add Desperado Barrel Dragon from your Deck to your hand.

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

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

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

Basically you cant win against this deck unless you play Vendread
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

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
Great deck

Barrel Dragon doesn't target which is amazing.. rip everyone.

Indeed, one of the best additions.
Tier 0
Not sure how this deck came to be tier one. Yes, it can be game changing to completely nuke your opponents field, but pulling it of is another story. I tried running the most competitive version of this deck, and more often than not, your opponent (if competent) just plays around your destructions. Not to mention if you up against someone who likes to hide face down, namely Subterrors, it’s pretty much auto lose for you.

If you have a Time wizard on the field and a few coin tosses to land on heads it’s no problem. They scoop against me.
This deck would never become tier 1 if Amazoness and Subterror remained untouched.

Desperado can't do anything against traps and banishing, even can't summon anything

Subterror is untouched dude.

If you are talking about the skill Masked Tribute, then I guess your point is Subterror is a lame archetype that can only function with a specific "skill", not the player's skill himself.

> not the player's skill himself

Lol what? Subterrors is not a hard deck to pilot.
Your goal mostly is to set Subterror final battle and Uma face down and pray that your opponent does not have outs to it, Lava golem, Reactor dragon, Cosmyc cyclone etc
How many months do you need to learn to get this skill?

You guys need some cough syrup? XD
This deck is really not OP. Not nearly as strong as Darklord or Invoked.
And there are some nice staples which you can get with Dream tickets. But those might also depend...
