Atticus Rhodes (JP: Fubuki Tenjoin) is the missing brother of Alexis Rhodes. He is a member of Obelisk Blue dormitory that suddenly disappeared along with others students. Atticus witnessed Yusuke Fujiwara (One of his close friends) trying to summon Nightshroud (An evil spirit) by using the Nightshroud Mask to obtain immortality. Yusuke gave the Nightshroud Mask to Atticus as a farewell gift. Atticus then got possessed by the mask. Eventually, he and Jaden dueled in a Shadow Game. Atticus lost the duel, then he got released from the control of Nightshroud.
Red-Eyes B. Dragon
Aticcus' deck revolves around his signature monster Red-Eyes B. Dragon. He uses Red-Eyes B. Chick along with Call of the Haunted and Troop dragon to easily summon it. It's also supported by Swing of Memories and Red-Eyes Wyvern to special summon it from the graveyard. By that time, he'll use it as a tribute to summon Red-Eyes Darkness Dragon that has a very high attack due to the dragon monsters on the graveyard. He also interrupts with his opponent's plan by destroying or disabling their spell and traps. He uses cards such as Mystical Space Typhoon and Mirage Dragon. Another strategy of Atticus is to use Inferno Fire Blast and Red-Eyes Burn to inflict devastating damage to his opponent.
I don't think REBD was ever meta. Red-Eyes Zombie Dragon was, though.
Also, really, I don't think "real" Red-Eyes cards will be meta. We're not getting Archfiend Black Skull Dragon or Flare Dragon, so they're still going to lack any particularly threatening monsters. Red-Eyes Fusion into Meteor Black Comet is probably less intimidating than Neos Fusion into Brave Neos.
