Vala-Malefics: First Draft

"Malefic Truth Dragon"

Hello fellow members of the Yu-Gi-Oh! blogging community, today I will be presenting you with a first draft of a Malefic deck. But first, I shall bore you with a little bit of back story. A good friend of mine recently took up Yu-Gi-Oh! again after I dragged him back into it. His Watt deck was... sub par to say the least. So being the remotely kind guy I am, I offered to help him with a Malefic deck. I happily obliged. This is what I came up with.

Monsters [20]
[2] Malefic Truth Dragon
[3] Malefic Cyber End Dragon
[3] Malefic Stardust Dragon
[3] Malefic Blue-Eyes White Dragon
[3] Malefic Parallel Gear
[3] Beast King Barbaros
[3] Blue-Eyes White Dragon

Spells [11]
[3] Malefic World
[2] Terraforming
[3] Trade-In
[1] Allure of Darkness
[1] Dark Hole
[1] Monster Reborn

Traps [9]
[3] Skill Drain
[1] Mirror Force
[1] Torrential Tribute
[2] Seven Tools of the Bandit
[1] Solemn Judgment
[1] Return from a Different Dimension

Extra Deck [12]
[3] Malefic Paradox Dragon
[3] Cyber End Dragon
[3] Stardust Dragon
[3] Chimeratech Fortress Dragon

As always, suggestions are more than appreciated. Please don't forget to follow our blog if you are not following it already. Also, I wish to thank everyone who is following this blog. It means a lot to us. I hope you enjoyed this post.



  1. Blue-Eyes White is dead if you draw it, and it makes at least one of it's Malefic counterparts useless.

    I'd recommend against using it in threes, at least.

  2. They are both in threes =P

    And don't forget that Trade-In and Allure of Darkness help with the consistency.

  3. But what are you trying to draw into with those? Your Blue-Eyes White Dragons, thus insuring that you have nigh-useless Malefic BEWDs? Or do you hope that you draw Malefic BEWDs before their light counterparts?

  4. You can always tune your Sin BEWD with Parallel Gear, without using the Light one.

  5. Well, yeah. That's why you see builds running a single Malefic BEWD. In triple? Never.

  6. Um what about Rainbow Dragon and Malefic Rainbow Dragon... That one goes from the hand... sure you lose draw power but Malefic World covers that with searching. What about running some Viruses? It's really fun to Deck Dev and then drop Sin Cyber End just because you can... or Eradicator Epedimic and have no traps stop your 4000 Beaters for 3 turns...

  7. The viruses aren't bad, but Rainbow/Malefic Rainbow have the problem of Rainbow being a dead draw. Sure, it won't make Malefic Rainbow dead, but...

  8. EEV doesn't sound like a bad idea.

    Sadly, the person who I have designed this deck is terribly inexperienced. Sigh, such a shame.
