How to use this deck

Starting Hand

This often determines how you will be playing the deck. Each monster have their uses, and are helpful in certain situations.

  • Dream Clown is a safe choice to summon when you have some decent spell/trap cards, but this will let your opponent know that you plan on playing defensively.
  • Swarm of Locusts is very good if you get first turn. If your opponent only summons 1 monster, then you only need to use 1 card to protect it, ensuring that you can flip summon on the next turn.
  • Cards like 4-Starred Ladybug of Doom or Amazoness Chain Master are also good at the early turns. You don't need to risk setting a spell/trap card since they are the disposable ones.

Playing Defensively

Almost all of the cards in the deck are usable right away. This will make sure that your monsters have a high chance of surviving for at least a turn, even against Harpie decks.

  • If you are not at risk of losing the duel, you can hold on to the spell/trap cards to save your other monsters next turn.
  • Saving your cards like Enemy Controller can allow you to take control of your opponent's monster later.
  • You can purposefully take some damage so you can use Bandit to take control of your opponent's spell/trap card, or use cards like Mirror Wall, or Amazoness Chain Master to lower your LP.
  • If your opponent has multiple spell/trap cards, it's recommended to not risk getting Mirror Wall'ed by attacking blindly into your enemy unless you have some protection.
  • Tragedy can destroy all defense position monster your opponent controls, even if they are face down. This can help prevent their flip effects or destroy all their monsters.

I'd go 3 clowns and 3 guardians. -1 tragedy -1 desert -1 transporter and replace them with more versatile cards like half shut, econ, or SRH. I personally run 3 SRH in my clown/guardian deck. Card is OP

Got King of games with this. I had trouble against kaiba decks that ran the Vanguard card. Most other decks this deck would edge out or went even with. Has no trouble against Weevil or relinquished, which were common. Usually beat Harpies but that could take a game off me sometimes

How does this deck fare against Toons?

You need Amazoness Chain Master and Swarm of Locusts in your opening hand to even stand a chance. Basically get rid of Toon Kingdom on turn 1 or 2.

This deck should not be 9.5/10 especially you are going second. Difficult to counter two monsters that are higher than you with backrow like econ.

Its tough, certainly. I run a Destiny Draw variant I got off of reddit, I forget whose. Runs 3xclowns, 1-2xstatues, and 2-3x flash assailants, with fiend and a mess of traps. RNG hasn't blessed me with econ yet, but Magical Arm Shield and Fiend Megacyber work decently to salvage things if they get a board developed. Trap jammer loses games, but that's what electro would be for if I had him...

How is this deck a 9.5? I match all the cards and can't even get to plat. There are way to many counters to this deck.

My friend has been climbing Plat with Clown Control. He's basically on the bubble of KoG with the deck right now. This build isn't the best, but honestly, the problem isn't as much the deck as it is the player. If you can't get to Plat with Clown Control, you honestly don't belong there. But enjoy your inevitable switch to Harpies like everyone else that doesn't know how to play proper control.

This is correct. I'm his friend and I did indeed make it to King of Games. The deck is incredibly powerful if played correct.
