As if the Structure Deck Return of the Red-Eyes wasn’t already enough, it looks like, along with long-awaited Black Rose Dragon, the 20th Main Box Blazing Rose is going to feature more support for the archetype. Red-Eyes Fusion (Deck) is now incredibly more consistent, powerful and, unfortunately, expensive.
Note: This is an Example Deck that doesn’t require you to reset the Main Box Blazing Rose or the Structure Deck Return of the Red-Eyes.
If you Summon your Red-Eyes Slash Dragon on Turn 1, you are not going to be able to equip anything to it via its effect, which means your main monster will have no protection. You can equip Black Metal Dragon from your hand or field to your Red-Eyes Slash Dragon (or any other “Red-Eyes” monster you control) to make it gain 600 ATK and enable its effect.
If Black Metal Dragon is sent from the field to the Graveyard, you can add 1 “Red-Eyes” card from your Deck to your hand. If you do not want to commit to the board right away, you can just Set your Black Metal Dragon and wait for your opponent to destroy it. Due to the fact that Black Metal Dragon’s effect cannot miss the timing, you can also Set it, Tribute it via Enemy Controller, take control of an opponent’s monster, search Red-Eyes Fusion and Special Summon Red-Eyes Slash Dragon
When Red-Eyes Baby Dragon is destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard, you can Special Summon a Level 7 or lower “Red-Eyes” monster from your Deck and equip it with Red-Eyes Baby Dragon. Use Red-Eyes Baby Dragon’s effect to Special Summon Red-Eyes Black Dragon or Red-Eyes Archfiend of Lightning. You can then send Red-Eyes Baby Dragon (Equip Card) to the Graveyard via Red-Eyes Slash Dragon’s effect to negate the activation of a card or effect that targets a card you control and then add 1 Level 1 Dragon (Black Metal Dragon or The Black Stone of Legend) from your Deck or Graveyard to your hand.
By sending 1 “Red-Eyes” monster from your hand or Deck to the Graveyard, Red-Eyes Insight allows you to add 1 “Red-Eyes” Spell/Trap Card from your Deck to your hand, except Red-Eyes Insight.
Use Red-Eyes Insight to search Red-Eyes Fusion. Keep in mind that you are going to need at least 1 Red-Eyes Black Dragon in your hand, Deck or field in order to activate Red-Eyes Fusion and Summon Red-Eyes Slash Dragon.
Red-Eyes Fusion allows you to Fusion Summon Red-Eyes Slash Dragon, Meteor B. Dragon or Archfiend Black Skull Dragon from your Extra Deck, using monsters from your hand, Deck or field as Fusion Materials.
Red-Eyes Fusion functions similarly to Neos Fusion, but, as the main difference, it completely prevents you from Normal or Special Summoning other monsters the turn you activate it.
Send Red-Eyes Black Dragon and a Warrior-Type monster from your Deck to the Graveyard to Fusion Summon Red-Eyes Slash Dragon. Since it was Summoned properly, if Red-Eyes Slash Dragon is destroyed and sent to the Graveyard, you can Special Summon it via Red-Eyes Retro Dragon or Red-Eyes Spirit.
Keep in mind that, If you activate Red-Eyes Fusion, Summon Red-Eyes Slash Dragon and your opponent destroys it during the same turn, you will not be able to activate Red-Eyes Retro Dragon’s effect.
When a “Red-Eyes” monster declares an attack, you can target a Warrior-Type monster in your Graveyard and equip it to Red-Eyes Slash Dragon as an Equip Spell.
The Equip Spell increases the ATK of the monster it’s equipped to by 200 and it allows you to negate the activation of any card or effect that targets a card you control (Karakuri Ninja mdl 339 "Sazank", Gale Lizard…) by sending an Equip Card you control to the Graveyard.
This effect will trigger even if your opponent is the one declaring an attack with a “Red-Eyes” monster and even if Red-Eyes Slash Dragon already has a card equipped to it.
If Red-Eyes Slash Dragon is destroyed by a card or effect, you can Special Summon as many monsters as possible from your Graveyard that were equipped to it. If a monster was equipped to Red-Eyes Slash Dragon by another card’s effect, you will still be able to Special Summon it.
Although you cannot Normal or Special Summon other monsters the turn you activate Red-Eyes Fusion, you are still able to Set. If you are on the play, you might not want to Summon Red-Eyes Slash Dragon right away since you wouldn’t be able to declare an attack and trigger its effect. Set D.D. Assailant and end your turn or send it from your hand, Deck or field to the Graveyard as Fusion Material for Red-Eyes Slash Dragon.
Use this Skill to get over high ATK monsters such as Blue-Eyes White Dragon, Cosmo Brain and Red-Eyes Slash Dragon. If you declare an attack with your Red-Eyes Slash Dragon, your opponent will be able to equip a Warrior-Type monster from the Graveyard to their own Red-Eyes Slash Dragon, which means your monsters will have the same amount of ATK. Red-Eyes is only going to get more popular after the release of Blazing Rose, so get ready for the mirror match.
