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 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.
Beatdown! This turn, the Atk of all Level 5 or higher face-up monsters on your field increases by the number of monsters of Level 5 or higher on your field times 300.
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.
Red-Eyes Fusion prevents you from Special Summoning other monsters the turn you activate it. The ability to recover instantly via Red-Eyes Retro Dragon and/or Red-Eyes Slash Dragon is absolutely fantastic, but the fact that your opponent can just safely get rid of your main monster the turn you Summoned it definitely holds this deck back.
Facing against Stall can be a huge issue since this deck is not exactly built for long games. Lava Golem can be a particularly problematic card to deal with because of its ability to get rid of monsters without destroying or even targeting them.
Buster Blader is a brick fest in of itself. Yea it adds a lot power that can make disgusting boards, but you also drop a lot of consistency and will cost you some number of games

Red eye fusion deck is powerful back then, but after Desperado structure deck release. Red eye is NOT on tier list anymore. I wasted money and gems back then to get black metal dragon now this deck become a random deck. I tried my best to fight desperado even with 2 POG equips, He still manage to destroy my dragon. Even I treachous it, he summon another one from hand. Now when I see Desperado deck. I just auto surrender just like I auto surrender to Buster blader to save my time. Unless I load my red eye deck with drowning, D prison and Wall of D or else I just auto lose.
Archfiend of Lightening (Summoned Skull) no. But Red-Eyes Archfiend of Lightening does though and it's a VERY beastly card. Not sure if it's in duel links yet but it's a gemini card that, once summoned again for it's effect, can destroy all opponents monsters with defense less than it's attack. You can also equip a black metal dragon to it since it's a Red-Eyes card to give it 3100 atk. It's great
Probably the Best Tier 1 deck after more than 1 year. Slash Dragon is such an awesome card.
