How to Play

Revendread Evolution & Revendread Slayer

You can use Revendread Evolution to Ritual Summon any “Vendread” Ritual Monster from your hand or Graveyard. You must also Tribute monsters from your hand or field, and/or send a “Vendread” monster from your Deck to the Graveyard, whose total Levels equal the Level of the Ritual Monster you intend to Summon. The Ritual Summoned monster is destroyed during the End Phase of the next turn, but, since you can Ritual Summon it from the Graveyard, it isn’t that big of an issue.

In order to fully take advantage of Revendread Evolution, you can use it to Summon Revendread Slayer. Revendread Slayer is a Level 6 Ritual Monster that, if sent to the Graveyard, allows you to add a Ritual Spell from your Deck to your hand and then send a “Vendread” monster from your Deck to the Graveyard. You can use Slayer’s effect to add Revendread Origin or Revendread Evolution to your hand and then send a “Vendread” Ritual Monster, Vendread Houndhorde, Vendread Strikes, Vendread Core or Vendread Anima to the Graveyard.

Once per battle, if Revendread Slayer battles an opponent’s monster, you can banish a Zombie monster from your Graveyard to increase its ATK by 300. Revendread Slayer will not lose this ATK boost unless it’s flipped face-down, and you can activate this effect multiple times during the same Battle Phase.

Revendread Origin

Revendread Origin is another Ritual Spell that can be used to Ritual Summon any “Vendread” Ritual Monster from your hand or Graveyard. You must also Tribute monsters from your hand or field, and/or banish Zombie monsters from your Graveyard, whose total Levels equal or exceed the Level of the Ritual Monster you intend to Summon.

If a Revendread Slayer(s) you control would be destroyed by battle or card effect, you can banish Revendread Origin from your Graveyard instead. Since Revendread Executor’s name becomes “Revendread Slayer” while it’s on the field, you can use Revendread Origin to protect it. It’s also notable that you can use Origin’s effect to protect multiple copies of Revendread Slayer, which is relevant against Desperado Barrel Dragon and Treacherous Trap Hole.

Vendread Core

If Vendread Core is in your Graveyard, you can banish another Zombie monster from your Graveyard to Special Summon it. All non-Ritual “Vendread” monsters can be Special Summoned from the Graveyard, but, when they leave the field, if they were Special Summoned by their own effect, they are banished.

Having these monsters face-up on the field is really important because, if they are used to Ritual Summon a “Vendread” monster, that monster gains an additional effect. If a “Vendread” monster is Ritual Summoned using a face-up Vendread Core, your opponent cannot target that monster with card effects. Note that, if your Ritual Monster is flipped face-down or is banished via World Legacy Clash, it’s going to lose any additional effect.

Vendread Houndhorde

If Vendread Houndhorde is in your Graveyard, you can discard a “Vendread” card to Special Summon it. If a “Vendread” monster is Ritual Summoned using a face-up Vendread Houndhorde, it gains the ability to, once per turn, target a Spell/Trap Card your opponent controls and banish it. You can use this effect to get rid of your opponent’s back row or to banish cards like Geartown and Ancient Gear Fortress.

Vendread Revenants

If Vendread Revenants is destroyed by battle or by an opponent’s card effect and sent to the Graveyard, you can Special Summon it.

If a “Vendread” monster is Ritual Summoned using a face-up Vendread Revenants, it gains the ability to, once per turn, target a Special Summoned monster your opponent controls and banish it. Say goodbye to Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En, Elemental HERO Brave Neos and Desperado Barrel Dragon.

Vendread Nights

Vendread Nights is a great Field Spell that has great synergy with the rest of the archetype. Once per turn, you can discard a card to add a “Vendread” monster from your Deck to your hand.

It’s unfortunate that Vendread Nights cannot search Revendread Evolution and Revendread Origin, but it does allow you to add any “Vendread” Ritual Monster to your hand without expending your Normal Summon and it can also be used to search non-Ritual “Vendread” monsters.

Aside from giving you access to any monster of the archetype, Vendread Nights also allows your “Vendread” monsters to attack multiple times during the same Battle Phase. You do need to banish a “Vendread” monster from your Graveyard in order to activate this effect and you can only do it if your opponent controls another monster that you can attack, but it’s still a nice addition to what would already be an undeniable inclusion.

Additional Notes

Master of Rites II
Begin Duel with the Continuous Spell "Ritual Cage" activated.
Alexis Rhodes
Alexis Rhodes

Ritual Cage prevents your Ritual Monsters from being targeted or destroyed by monster effects, protecting them from Legendary Six Samurai - Enishi, Snipe Hunter, and most importantly Desperado Barrel Dragon.

Beatdown!
This turn, the Atk of all Level 5 or higher face-up monsters on your field increases by the number of monsters of Level 5 or higher on your field times 300.
Jack Atlas

Revendread Executor is the highest ATK monster in your Deck. 3000 ATK is respectable, but, with monsters like Blue-Eyes White Dragon and Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon still around, it’s not exactly enough. Beatdown will make your monsters more threatening and give more value to Vendread Nights’ secondary effect.

How does Summoning the Level 8 Revendread Executor using only the Level 1 Vendread Core sound? Now that’s a 3000 ATK monster that cannot be targeted by your opponent’s card effects and that can also prevent other cards you control from being targeted.

Heavy Starter
If your Deck has 3 or more Level 5 or higher monsters with different names, you will have improved chance of having a Level 5 or higher monster in your starting hand.

Always opening with at least a Ritual Monster means that you only have to worry about the Ritual Spell. Heavy Starter notably increases the consistency of the Deck, but it also forces you to run Vendread Battlelord or Vendread Chimera.

I started building this deck when I started playing again during the fall KCC. As soon as a I finished it, I named it V for Vendreadda. My deck varies from this list a bit, but hey, it got me KoG, so I think it’s fine.

1 origin + 2 V' field spell is quiet enough. You can replace them with 3 slayers and 1 TTH. Or maybe you can try synchro monsters with glow up bloom or maybe you can run nine tail fox if u have a bad hand.

I think tier lists only have referential value. I don't believe in them.

This deck is powerful and consistent enough to clap plenty of meta decks, specially now that darklords got limited. They always clapped desperado btw

this fell off the tier list quickly

Easy to build.
However, I hate that movie called V for Vull🔥.

it's controlled opposition financed by the UK government.

That’s bs, this deck is high tiered. Players just don’t use it as often because it’s harder to put together due to it being expensive.

It's less expensive than a good chunk of the top decks, so that's clearly not the reason why...

There's ALWAYS gonna be a future content, so you'll just gonna ends up never using your gems for anything.

Anyway, to the OP, if you like Ritual, then go for it. Otherwise, go for something else you actually like instead.

This deck is 1 month old (or a bit more) I think the best box is Valhalla Calling. Decks from main boxes stay as meta pretty much FOREVER and I don't give a single f* if another random dude says the opposite. I won't change my opinion.

I guess Axe Raider Beatdown from the first main box must still be meta then by your logic

Not sure why people say Darklords always beat Vendreads. I usually ending up banishing their spells/monsters before they get a chance to set up their board. Funny story, my opponent managed to set up their graveyard with all their DLord monsters, but since I had V-Nights played, I just keep using its effect to make continuous attacks every time they revieved their monster, until they ran out of LP. Attacked directly for game lol.

I’m just happy this deck claps on Yubel. Saw that deck a bunch in the KC cup, but luckily, ritual cage ruins their day. Along with all the other protections that Vendreads have. Just keep banishing all their 🔥.

2 slayer, 2 executor, 2 battle Lord is the ideal way to play the deck.

I see no problems with this deck and beat it many times with my Blue eyes deck, except when the opponent summoned some monster and started to banish my cards twice a turn (during my phase and his). I do not know what to do after that.

I don't agree. It is not that difficult to summon Vendread ritual monster using either Houndhorde or Revenants. The key is that you can discard all the rituals mosnters to the graveyard (and still summon them later) to add cards you want to the hand. Yeah, still it sometimes bricks if you get 3x Slayer and 2x Battlelord in the starting hand, but hey which deck doesn't brick from time to time.

You just usually have to chose between banishing monsters and backrow removal (whether to use revenants or houndhorde) but you decide based on the deck you face and you're fine

For example you can discard Houndhorde with Vendread Nights and search Revenants from the deck, then special summon Houndhorde from the graveyard by discarding Slayer and normall summon Revenants. Then you ritual summon Slayer using both Revenants and Houndhorde. All in one turn
