How to use this deck

Gozuki and Dark Dimension

Gozuki plays quite an important role in the deck, and having multiples in the deck might be necessary. You can summon Gozuki and send a zombie monster from your deck to the graveyard. This allows you to later special summon a Red-Eyes Zombie Dragon from your hand when Gozuki gets destroyed. Alternatively, if you have a zombie monster already in your graveyard, that's not Gozuki, then you can activate his ability when it's on the field to send a Gozuki from your deck to the graveyard. This will let him activate his second effect, so you can summon Red-Eyes Zombie Dragon from your hand. The banished monster can then be special summoned using Escape from the Dark Dimension, giving you 3 monsters on the field in a single turn pretty quickly.


Sharing the same Red-Eyes name, they can all be "revived" using either Red-Eyes Wyvern effect, or Red-Eyes Spirit.

  • Starting with Red-Eyes Wyvern can help make some plays. If you don't summon/set any monster in a turn, you can attack your enemy using Red-Eyes Wyvern, since it can still be beneficial even if it gets destroyed.
  • Red-Eyes Zombie Dragon's effect won't really be useful if you go against a non zombie deck, but what separates it from the normal Red-Eyes is its synergy with Gozuki so you can special summon it, and its ability to tribute summon using only 1 zombie monster.
  • Normal Red-Eyes is usually used for Cards of the Red Stone, since you want to save Zombie Dragon to be special summoned through Gozuki.

Draw and Summon

With a lot of high level monsters and spell/trap cards, there is a chance that you get a dead hand.

  • Use Cards of the Red Stone so you can get more draws, and send another Red-Eyes from your deck to the graveyard. This helps with thinning your deck so you don't get a high level without being able to summon it, as well as allowing Red-Eyes Spirit to summon them later.
  • You can set a Red-Eyes Spirit if you think you can use it soon, but make sure to not set it carelessly, especially when going against Harpie decks, or Champion Vigilance decks.
  • If you have Gozuki on the field, you can send a Red-Eyes monster to the graveyard, and activate Red-Eyes Spirit during battle phase. Using it when your opponent has no monsters on the field can catch them off guard, letting you direct attack with a 2400 attack monster.


Since special summoning the monsters often require them to be in the graveyard, use these cards to send them there.

  • Enemy Controller protects your monster, but can also be used to tribute yours to send it to the graveyard. This can activate Gozuki effect and special summon from your hand.
  • Rising Energy can also be used offensively, or defensively, but the effect of discarding a card is something that's positive in the deck, instead of losing a resource.
  • Lastly, the other way to send them to the graveyard is to use the Last Gamble skill. This is mostly good and only recommended as the last option since it will leave you with 100 LP. Attacking carelessly can end up losing you the duel instead.

Toons can be a big problem for most red eyes decks unless they're running some kind of S/T removal, though most of them don't.

" Anoymous Champion's vigilance only works on normal redeyes." -- just to reinforce: champion's vigilance only works on NORMAL level 7 or higher monsters. e.g red eyes, blue eyes, dark magician.
Great deck, i just need to hit the lottery to play this. Very cheap if you ask me.

I only have two too. I just got a 3rd wyvern so I run that but I have used an extra cards of the red stone and RBD. Helps with card draw. Also, I've found double coston works ok since its a zombie and you can also use it to summon RBD for one tribute.
