How to Play

Psi-Reflector & Assault Beast

Psi-Reflector
Psi-Reflector
EARTH Psychic ★1
ATK 400 / DEF 300
Kings Resonance [SR]
If this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You can add 1 "Assault Mode Activate", or 1 card that specifically lists "Assault Mode Activate" in its text, from your Deck to your hand, except "Psi-Reflector". You can reveal 1 "Assault Mode Activate" in your hand, then target 1 monster in your GY that specifically lists "Assault Mode Activate" in its text, except "Psi-Reflector"; Special Summon it, and if you do, increase its Level by 1 to 4. You can only use each effect of "Psi-Reflector" once per turn.

If Psi-Reflector is Normal or Special Summoned, you can add 1 "Assault Mode Activate" or 1 card that specifically lists “Assault Mode Activate” in its text from your Deck to your hand (except Psi-Reflector).

Once per turn, by revealing 1 "Assault Mode Activate" in your hand, Psi-Reflector allows you to target 1 monster in your GY that specifically lists the Trap Card in its text (except Psi-Reflector), Special Summon it and increase it's Level 1 by 1 to 4.

  • Normal Summon Psi-Reflector, search Assault Beast, discard Assault Beast to search “Assault Mode Activate”, Special Summon Assault Beast from your Graveyard via Psi-Reflector’s effect, Synchro Summon Red Dragon Archfiend.
Assault Beast
Assault Beast
EARTH Beast-Warrior ★4
ATK 1900 / DEF 1200
Kings Resonance [R]
You can discard this card to the Graveyard to add 1 "Assault Mode Activate" from your Deck to your hand.

If you already have Assault Beast in your hand, you can instead search Red Dragon Archfiend/Assault Mode and then shuffle it back into the Deck via Assault Teleport to draw 2 cards.

Red Dragon Archfiend/Assault Mode

Red Dragon Archfiend/Assault Mode
Red Dragon Archfiend/Assault Mode
DARK Dragon ★10
ATK 3500 / DEF 2500
Kings Resonance [UR]
This card cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. This card cannot be Special Summoned except with "Assault Mode Activate". If this card attacks, destroy all other monsters after damage calculation. When this card on the field is destroyed, you can Special Summon 1 "Red Dragon Archfiend" from your Graveyard.

Red Dragon Archfiend/Assault Mode can only be Special Summoned via Assault Mode Activate by Tributing Red Dragon Archfiend.

If Red Dragon Archfiend/Assault Mode attacks, all other monsters on the field are destroyed after damage calculation. You can pretty safely crash this 3500 ATK monster into your opponent’s monsters since, even if it’s destroyed by battle, it will still wipe board and Special Summon from the Graveyard the Red Dragon Archfiend you used to Summon it, ready for a direct attack.

Assault Mode Activate

Assault Mode Activate

Normal Trap
Kings Resonance [SR]

Ballista Squad
Ballista Squad
Normal Trap
Fortress of Gears [UR]

Red Dragon Archfiend

Vermillion Dragon Mech
Vermillion Dragon Mech

Once per turn: You can banish 1 Tuner from your hand, field, or Graveyard, then target 1 card on the field; destroy it. If this Synchro Summoned card is destroyed by card effect and sent to the Graveyard: You can target 1 of your banished Tuners; add it to your hand.
Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier
Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier
WATER Dragon ★6
ATK 2300 / DEF 1400
Aerial Assault [UR]
1 Tuner + 1+ non-Tuner monsters
You can discard any number of cards to the GY, then target the same number of cards your opponent controls; return those cards to the hand. You can only use this effect of "Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier" once per turn.

Weaknesses

  • You don’t exactly have a way of dealing with Invoked Cocytus aside from HTS Psyhemuth. You could banish Invocation via Cosmic Cyclone to prevent your opponent from adding Aleister the Invoker back to their hand, but lowering your Life Points is not exactly always ideal.

  • Summoning Red Dragon Archfiend is incredibly easy thanks to Psi-Reflector and Assault Beast, but you still need to wait a turn before you can activate Assault Mode Activate, Summon Red Dragon Archfiend/Assault Mode and thus have access to Assault Counter.

  • Assault Mode Zero is an option and, unlike Assault Counter and Assault Teleport, it can be searched via Psi-Reflector, but it can only Special Summon Red Dragon Archfiend/Assault Mode from your hand. If you intend to play the Quick-Play Spell, I would advise not running Teleport. Transcendent Crystals + Assault Mode Zero could be an interesting combination, but Cosmic Enlightenment is way too important to drop.

Other Cards Option

Kiteroid
Kiteroid
WIND Machine ★1
ATK 200 / DEF 400
Tour Guides Mission Bingo Event [SR]
Card Trader [SR]
Activate when you discard this card from your hand during damage calculation after a direct attack. Any Battle Damage you would receive from that direct attack becomes 0. Only once, if you remove this card from the game when it is in your Graveyard, any Battle Damage you would receive from a direct attack becomes 0.

kiteroid is better than sphere kuriboh

It is a sample deck, meaning you're free to change it

Because it prevents damage twice? I'd rather go for the defense mode, tbh. At least then I have to get over a "generally" lower number. Preventing damage twice generally means you're losing the duel regardless.

Sphere kuriboh can protect your monster but kiteroid can't.

Both are good but the situation is different. Sphere Kuriboh mostly protect your monster but it's useless against Cocytus and superheavy samurai since they already can attack while in def position. Kiteroid can save many times while you get a brick hand and you face otk deck

I've seen plenty of AM decks listed as kog in DLM. It's a tiered archetype.

So far it's not made a dent in the dominance of blackwings, danklords and invokesabers.
