Macro Monarch has always helped me in real life. It's probably my favorite deck out there, but I'd like to improve this one to be competitive. This is a slightly altered recreation of my real life Macro Monarch deck. the only difference is that I've added xyz's to the deck and haven't bothered altering it any further. I know running one of each of the monarchs isn't really the best idea, but before now, this deck was simply for casual enjoyment and what I enjoyed was running all the monarchs. Plus, no one in my group of friends is too hard to beat. Now here's the deck list:

Monsters:
Caius the Shadow Monarch x3
Mobius the Frost Monarch x1
Zaborg the Thunder Monarch x2
D.D. Assailant x2
D.D. Scout Plane x1
D.D. Survivor x1
D.D. Warrior Lady x2
Exiled Force x1
Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning x1
Gorz the Emissary of Darkness x1
Snipe Hunter x1
Bazoo the Soul Eater x2
Necroface x1
Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer x1
Gren Maju Da Eiza x1


Spells:
Lightning Vortex x1
Shield Crush x1
Soul Absorption x1
Heavy Storm x1
D.D.R. - Different Dimension Reincarnation x2
Pot of Duality x1
Double Summon x1

Traps:
Dimensional Prison x2
Magic Cylinder x1
Mirror Force x1
Macro Cosmos x2
Bottomless Trap Hole x2
Windstorm of Etaqua x1
Karma Cut x1
Dust Tornado x1

Side Deck:
Treeborn Frog x2
Man-Eater Bug x1
Macro Cosmos x1
Torrential Tribute x1
Call of the Haunted x2
Trap Hole x2
Sakuretsu Armor x2
Shield Crush x1
Mage Power x2
Tribute to the Doomed x1

Extra Deck:
Evilswarm Ouroboros x2
Gigagigo the Awakened x2
Gem-Knight Pearl x2
Heroic Champion - Excalibur x2
Heroic Champion - Gandiva x2
Number 10: Illumiknight x2
Number 39: Utopia x2
Sword Breaker x1

My side deck is positioned to rid my need for banishing effects in case an opponent's deck takes my removal from me. My extra deck was poorly thrown together in an attempt to update my deck (a poor attempt at that.) I've always built fifty card decks, but would gladly Size down to forty if it improved my deck. My methods are extremely outdated. After all, I never really had a need to improve them since none of my friends were better than me. I'd like to think of this as a movement out of my stale ways, and would vastly appreciate the opinions of players that can easily outperform me. Thanks in advanced for those who provide your opinions.

Yeah, did I mention that my methods are extremely outdated? He was good for summoning the monarchs at the time...

Sized it down to forty and removed the extra monarchs and Twin-Headed Behemoth.

Remove the following crap.

Exiled Force.
Every Monarch, except for Caius, Mobius, and Thestalos.
Twin-Headed Behemoth.
Kycoo (side him).
D.D. Assailant.
Silent Swordsman (all forms).
Bazoo the Soul Eater.
Snipe Hunter.

Lightning Vortex (replace with Dark Hole).
Shield Crush.
D.D.R. (just 1).
Double Summon.

Magic Cylinder.
Windstorm of Etaqua (REALLY?).
Karma Cut.
Dust Tornado.



Build around this.

...and I'll be honest, even THIS build isn't great. I just took what you built and removed the crap, then replaced it with better cards. It still needs some tweaking.

Nope!

Use this to get an idea for how Macro Monarchs should look. My build has a few problems though so take it with a grain of salt.

Are you serious? I am the best player in the game today. I started out with a Kuriboh as my boss monster, and have since climbed up the ladder of success. I am willing to break my back having to carry a team. Some say that there is no "I" in 'team," but what if I am the entire team? I'll carry this team across the river, to Victory Island. We'll pull out the champagne, with the ladies surrounding us. With a cigar in my mouth, I'll deliver the final speech. Our pilgrimage is complete. Our lives are over. The perpetual euphoria has been reached. The impossible has happened. You ask yourself if what has just transpired can possibly be real. I am no miracle worker, but I do have heart. And sometimes with a little bit of heart and some imagination, the world is yours for the taking. -Inflation

Holy shit skullvarnish, give me classes on how to burn the fuck out of people like that PLEASE

Swap a Raiza for Thestalos.

I also prefer using more D.D. Scout Planes than Survivors, but tis' just be preferance.

Survivor being Warrior makes ROTA viable, which helps with deck thing. I'd rather side Thestalos if I use it at all.

Thanks for the help, everyone. I'll take what I've seen here, and fiddle around with it a little to try and find what I'm most comfortable with. As I said before, my deck building skills are decrepit at best. I really need to rework how I play and build, drastically.

It's not a serious attempt, I just took the Deck on this thread, removed the garbage, and added good cards + staples.

I never even added an Extra Deck.

Nope!

well a macro monarch deck? let the biggest lover of D.Ds help you out here :3

first instead of telling you what to take out ill give critics

1- to many high level monsters with no easy way to summon them

2. not enough ways to properly banish your own cards, two macro cosmos wont cut it

3- not enough ways for bls, no proper macro monarch deck runs bls

4- why the hell are you running dust tornado over mystical typhoon?

5- only one d.d surviver when macro monarchs revolve around him and scout plane?

6. no return or dd dynamite? those are the epic ace in the hole cards monarchs have to offer

7. no d fissure?

tips?

1. mill down your monarchs to 3-5 * i reccomond four*

2. caius, mobius and raiza are the best monarchs, caius for total field choice even your own ccards, mobius for back row destruction, raiza for stopping your opponent to get good draws

3. boost your survivers and scout planes

4. either tripple macro cosmos or tripple d fissure, take your pick

5. ADD IN THAT RETURN!

Why are you not running 3 D.D. Survivors?

+1 Solemn Brigade (1 Solemn Judgement + 2 Solemn Warning)
-All of the Monarchs except for Caius and Raiza
+3 Dimensional Frissure
-All of your traps except for Mirror Force, Macro Cosmos, D. Prison, and Bottomless
+3 Raiza
-2 Bazoo
-All D.D. monsters except for Scout and Survivor

I only mentioned a few since there is so much things to be changed to make this deck competitive, but it seems SkullVarnish has the most appropriate build.

Well, thanks ^____^ It's a deck I've run for a while so I know my way around it. Still could be better though.

I've never built a Macro Monarch deck, just using my background knowledge to determine what seemed good or what seemed bad :3 perhaps I'll get started on a Macro Monarch deck soon after I finish play-testing my Steelswarm deck!

Macro monarchs are good its my favorite deck of all time but thats for sentimental reasons, they wont be topping finals or regionals, but they will defiantly earn you a fair amount of wins.

However do know you should run 3-4 monsters that have the effect "return to the field when banished" aka scout plane and dd surviver, the main difference between them is surviver is a decent 1800 brawler but he MUST be 1-face up and 2- on your side of the field, which is why some people may prefer scout plane over surviver

also dont underestimate D.D warrior lady, she can get you out of tight situations since she can remove any monster from play after damage calculation

you have krebons, he is a good card that can survive.

critiques about your deck

1- you rely way to much on scout plane and survivor when you only have 3 dimensional fissure and no macro cosmos.

2- photon is uneaded, and you should slim down your monarchs to 4, after four it becomes a high chance of dead draws.

3- Macro monarch decks almost always have something in the back row or front row, Gorz is another dead draw.

4- once again macro monarch deck, monster reborn will rarely be usefull, side deck it if you want it so bad and use it against decks that rely on their graveyard with strong monsters, even that can be a dead draw still since your banishing things.

5- you have no return from a different dimension, and no D.D dynamite, i can excuse dynamite but return is a must.

6- double mystical typhoon, in a deck that relies pretty much souly on top decking your biggest fear SHOULD be your opponents back row.

7- you have no macro cosmos, double macro cosmos and then place one macro cosmos in your side deck, when you face dark worlds in matches when it comes to side decking, tripple your macro cosmos.

as for your question about psychic macro monarchs..well these were my first game off making one in two minutes..
