reverse trap say hello!!
Did not work
Little tips:
you may use cards that discard/send card from your hand, and use spells/traps that used once or has cost to continue the activation.

Following monsters that may help:
1. Trance archfiend
2. Monsters that has discard to activate their effects
3. Monsters that has "no cards in hand" effect to activate/maximize their effects
4. Monsters that has "no spell and traps on your side of the field" to activate/maximize their effects

Following example of spells & traps that may be used:
mirror wall, divine wrath, rising energy, judgment anubis, half shut, etaqua, enemy controller, typhoon*, riryoku, regretful rebirth, limit pulse, etc (im sure you know more what suit the most for your theban deck).
Its better not to use much equip and continous spells/traps that has no cost to control the activation (such as mirror wall). So you can substitute metalmorph, wonder balloon, etc with anything else.

I will update this post if there's new combo with theban. I kindly thanks anyone who respond to my post, for any combo we could use further.

Just use localized tornado
Use ishizu ability to not draw cards in your drawphase.

And use burn deck normal
Balloons + Storm + Theban = holy 🔥

+ burn equals easy platinum
It doesn't work for me. I have no idea why. I've tried on multiple occasions with no traps or spells in my hand or on my side of the field.

Could use this vs the vagabond on the 1 card challenge.
Lol I think this card might be underrated
Use Limit Impulse and this card to get insanely early kills.

Well, about that.....
Structure deck is under discount NOW Lets use your mother credit card to make a brand new TEAR...
And how are you going to fulfill the Level 8 part? Blackwings don't have easy way to boos...
It's still decent though. Discarding has its uses, and you get to destroy 1 any card.
