Default New Horakhty Deck

With less than 10,000 Japanese copies (and no english copies) of this card in existence, I'm aware that this deck isn't feasible outside of the internet. However, it's a very fun deck to use online.
I don't know how new this technique is, but I haven't seen a good Horakhty deck in a while so I decided to give it a shot. Here's the build:

http://i.imgur.com/44vnt7e.png

(monsters)
1 The Creator God of Light, Horakhty
1 Obelisk the Tormentor
1 Slifer the Sky Dragon
1 The Winged Dragon of Ra
2 Swift Scarecrow
3 Green Gadget
3 Red Gadget
3 Yellow Gadget

(spells)
1 Monster Reborn
1 Foolish Burial
1 Pot of Avarice
1 One Day of Peace
2 Crashbug Road
2 Instant Fusion
2 Upstart Goblin

(traps)
1 Solemn Judgment
1 Solemn Warning
1 Starlight Road
3 Waboku
3 Negate Attack
3 Jar of Greed
3 Call of the Haunted

(extra)
3 Lavalval Chain
2 Daigusto Emeral
2 Gear Gigant X
2 Number 39: Utopia
1 Number 16: Shock Master
2 Mavelus
1 Stardust Dragon
1 Superdreadnought Rail Cannon Gustav Max
1 Superdimensional Robot Galaxy Destroyer

Setup:
Graveyard
- Obelisk the Tormentor
- Slifer the Sky Dragon
Field
- 2 copies of Call Of The Haunted (both set)
- 3 monsters
Hand
- The Winged Dragon of Ra
- Horakhty
- Monster Reborn (comes in handy if your opponent destroys Call Of The Haunted)

Strategy:
• 1. Send Obelisk the Tormentor and Slifer the Sky Dragon to the graveyard using either the first effect of Lavalval Chain or Foolish Burial.

• 2. Acquire both The Creator God of Light, Horakhty & The Winged Dragon of Ra in the hand by drawing them or using the second effect of Lavalval Chain.

• 3. Set 1 or 2 copies of Call Of The Haunted, depending on whether or not you have Monster Reborn in your hand. These will be used to special summon Obelisk the Tormentor and Slifer the Sky Dragon from the graveyard when you're ready.

• 4. Do this only if you're confident you are able to summon Horakhty this turn. Tribute three monsters to normal summon The Winged Dragon of Ra from your hand. Use Call Of The Haunted and/or Monster Reborn to special summon the remaining two Egyptian God cards to your side of the field. Finally, tribute all three of them to special summon The Creator God of Light, Horakhty.

Tips:
• If you draw into any 1 Gadget and 1 copy of Crashbug Road or Instant Fusion, you can get Lavalval Chain on the field and either Obelisk or Slifer in the graveyard on your first turn.

• Even if your opponent controls a strong monster, I suggest normal summoning a Gadget if you can, as it can thin out your deck & increase your odds of drawing the cards you need to finish the set up.

• Lavalval Chain and Daigusto Emeral should always be your first two choices for an Xyz summon unless you have everything set up to summon Horakhty next turn.


Some weaknesses include Thunder King Rai-Oh, Royal Decree, Dimensional Fissure, Macro Cosmos. I thought about trying to fit Mystical Space Typhoon but I'll only need it if my opponent is playing Macro or D-Fissure (and I rarely even see Royal Decree played at all anymore). As of right now, I'm going to side 3 copies of Mystical Space Typhoon. I might take out 1 copy each of Jar of Greed and Negate Attack for 2 copies of Dark Bribe (in case my opponent tries to MST a Call Of The Haunted right before I'm about to summon Horakhty.

I've successfully summoned Horakhty twice out of three duels using this build. Any tips on fixing the build or the strategy would be greatly appreciated, as well as counters to this deck's weaknesses.


Note: Dark Hole and Heavy Storm are not in this deck because I don't see them working well with the rest of my cards. Dark Hole is just pointless because I can negate 12 attacks (Swift Scarecrow, Waboku, Negate Attack, Number 39: Utopia) if I have to & I need to keep tribute fodder on the field. If I draw Heavy Storm after setting Call Of The Haunted, I can't summon Horakhty. Mystical Space Typhoon will do just fine in my side deck if Royal Decree or Macro Cosmos comes along.

Consider using Tin Goldfish for faster Xyz?

I'm curious as to why you are using Crashbug Road over Double Summon, other than the fact that it's a quickplay spell. Also, why only 2 upstart when you have 3 Jar of Greed. Isn't upstart globlin better than JoG?

I love Horakhty. Took me forever to get the card, but now with this deck (and a few tweaks) I can have a Horakhty deck. Thanks for posting this.

Additional Comment
I would add a Lighten the Load or 2 incase you get a crappy hand with just a god card. I'm glad you put some thought into this and didn't put. "Phantom of Chaos" in it.

Love the deck, - but, can you please explain why you'd use Mavelus instead of other level 4 Fusion Monsters? I gather there's a reason but I don't see it and I'm really curious!

Ultimate Offering would put in some serious work here.

Mavelus can't be hit by BTH

Good idea. It wasn't out at the time of making this deck

The Elemental Hero way is a lot more consistent, Fusion Gate + Chain Material = otk if you learn how to do it.
and if youre not interrupted of course.
