As we all know Dark world monsters are making a come back. There is a lot of hype surrounding the deck and my attempt here today is going to be to try and explain why the hype is there and weather or not Dark Worlds will be another popular deck. Lets begin with this:
For those of you who don't know, Dark Worlds are an archetype centered around discarding by a card effect. While to most people that would sound like cards with discard costs would be amazing, neutralizing the -1 to activate cards like Phoenix Wing Wind Blast, or Raigeki Break. This is a no-no. Discarding for the cost of an effect and discarding for an effect are two separate things. The difference between the two lies in the wording of a card.
Eg: Card A says "Discard one card from your hand. Draw one card from your Deck.
In this example, You discard one card first (Cost) then draw one card (effect) lets try another one.
Eg: Card B says "Draw one card. Then Discard one card from your hand."
In this example we have a draw one card(Cost) discard one card (effect). Cards like these you would use to set off the effects of a Dark World monster. Now that you know who they are lets see if they are good.
Grapha, Dragon Lord of Darkworld
This is the new big bad boss monster. He is a plus one in card advantage every turn and when discarded by a card effect nets another plus one taking a card to the grave with it. 2700 attack means even if your looking down other boss monsters, he has enough attack to run over most, if not all with the field spell.
Snoww, Unlight of Dark World
This is the consistency that this new deck recieves. Searches any "card" with Dark World in its name. Remember "Infernity Archfiend" being annoying searching out those Infernity Launcer's? Well Dark World doesn't have that kind of power in the form of "Infernity Launcher", but Snoww defiantly packs a punch being able to grab any discard outlet or monster.
Broww, Huntsman of Dark World
The drawing engine that lets you get to those discard outlets and is level three so he can be grabbed by "
Tour Guide from the Under World" another member that I will get to in a bit. This is an old ally of Dark World and will add to the power Dark World will release.
Goldd, Wu-Lord of Dark World
Sillva, Warlord of Dark World
I review these to together for the sake of time. They are the same two cards just slightly different effects. They allow for rank 5 Xyz summons, and special summon themselves when discarded to maintain field presence.
Beiige, Vanguard of Dark World
the fact he is another monster you can normal summon, used with Fabled
Raven for a Dark Highlander. and special summons himself he gets a
mention in here.
Dark World Dealings
Drawing and discarding??? What's not to love?? This card allows for instant discard on the spot. Amazing for the deck.
Gate of the Dark World
Themed field spell that sets up Goldd or Sillva to be 2600 beaters ready for a Deck Devistation Virus or Eradicator Epidemic Virus. Searchable Via Snoww and also sets up any play you can wish for.
Allies of Dark World:
Tour Guide From The Underworld
These cards allow for Broww, Huntsman of Dark World to come out quick, discard a bunch of cards quick and allow a hand reset getting you more advantage. They are used together so you can grab a bunch of cards then overwhelm your opponent.
With all of these cards, yes Dark worlds will be a force to be reckoned with. The hype surrounding them is deserved and lethal. get ready for the World to be covered in darkness. Thanks for reading Stay Sharp and Crushoot for game ;)
