Took me a bit to realize why Malefic Red-Eyes is in the standard deck despite no copies of the of original Red-Eyes present. The reason is Malefic Parallel Gear allowing the use of Malefics in the hand as Synchro Material.

You can also use paradox gear from your graveyard as tribute for the summon of any malefic monster that requires its original counterpart to be sent to the gv from your deck.

This works pretty well for me.

What's the point adding Melody and Selector when you already have Malefic World?? Better replace it with backrow removal or TTH so you can trigger Truth Dragon's summoning condition

I really don’t see the appeal to them seeing as most decks work without any back row whatsoever and with 3 in your deck your basically hoping to survive off 1000 life points. That’s perfectly fine with decks like Aromage or Cyber Dragons but those deck already have great backrow control without it. In my opinion it’s overhyped but if you having fun with 3 CC then I’m happy for you.

Your goal is not to use all 3 of them, you run 3 cosmic to draw them early and use them to remove backrow and then activate your skills. A lot of the best decks are quite backrow heavy such as shiranui and invoked, not to mention WoD/drowning is still being used to catch people off.

Shiranui just got better.

Are 3 copies of Pradox Gear a must?

You will need it to summon Malefic Rainbow without bricking yourself with the original Rainbow Dragon, so yes.
