Default The Key to Broken Locks - Umbral Horror Deck

Key Beetle and its interactions with Vanity Emptiness is broken. With Mistake going soon, Umbral Horror have easy access to powerful locks. Combine this with Masked Chameleon and access to Level 8 Synchros, this deck is quite powerful indeed. I feel the deck is in need of improvements. The Monk + Knight combo helps set up my combo much easier since Lavalval Chain is very good at stacking though can be replaced since it doesn't happen that often.

Monsters

• 3x Umbral Horror Ghoul
• 3x Umbral Horror Unform
• 3x Druise the Devious Druid
• 3x Masked Chameleon
• 2x Summoner Monk
• 1x Armageddon Knight
• 1x Blackwing - Zephyros the Elite

Spells

• 3x Recurring Nightmare
• 3x Mystical Space Typhoon
• 3x Pot of Duality
• 1x Dark Hole
• 1x Allure of Darkness
• 1x Book of Moon
• 1x Foolish Burial

Traps

• 3x Safe Zone
• 3x Vanity's Emptiness
• 2x Deck Devastation Virus
• 2x Mirror Force
• 1x Solemn Warning

Side

• 3x Imperial Iron Wall
• 3x Mistake
• 3x Kycoo
• 2x Fossil Dyna Pachycephalo
• 2x Effect Veiler
• 1x Eradicator Epidemic Virus
• 1x Soul Drain

Extra

• 2x Number 66: Master Key Beetle
• 1x Evilswarm Ouroboros
• 1x Number 85: Crazy Box
• 1x King of the Feral Imps
• 1x Maestroke the Symphony Djinn
• 1x Lavalval Chain
• 1x Gagaga Cowboy
• 1x Jeweled Dragon Archfiend (My new favourite Synchro)
• 1x Crimson Blader
• 1x Scrap Dragon
• 1x Colossal Fighter
• 1x Thought Ruler Archfiend
• 1x Dark End Dragon
• 1x Stardust Radiance Dragon

Beetle control is the new best antimeta IMO. Between Vanity's and Safe Zone... Good luck getting rid of him.

It really is. Easier said than done since this deck can drop Stardust Radiance like no-ones business.

Thanks. Be my guest. Give me your feedback and what you improve.


Having said in the OP that I rarely pull off the Monk/Knight combo, I have done so in the last four duels on the first turn. This game is weird is sometimes.

Neo-Spacian Grand Mole or Metaion, the Timelord.

How about Reptilianne Vaskii (searchable via King of the Feral Imps) in the side deck?
Just for when people whore Scapegoat and Mecha Phantom Beast Dracossack.
I would also say some effect negation is in order since something like Caius the Shadow Monarch can just banish your Safe Zone or Vanity's Emptiness.

I agree with Vaskii. I teched it in my side for my Rank Up Umbralis. Useful card. Will take out Soul Drain

I think I would include Breakthrough Skill/Fiendish Chain somehow. Not sure what to take out. Thinking putting Viruses in the side.

Changes

+3 Fiendish Chain (Main)
-2 DDV (Side)
-1 Allure (Never found it that useful)

+1 Vaskii (Side)
-1 Kycoo
-1 Eradicator Epidemic Virus
-1 Soul Drain

SO i played online with it. The addition of Fiendish Chain is beautiful.
I played a teledad deck, lightsworn deck, fire fist deck, and a batteryman deck.
it stopped them in their tracks.
sometimes it slows down, maybe i open with 2 druise and it sucks to wait but its so consistant, especially with Feral Imp and masked chameleon.
I kept one allure and 2 fiendish but the fiendish were awesome so i'll go with 3

I agree. As powerful as DDV is, I find that DDV is dead too often. When I mean dead, I mean ineffectual against decks on DN. I would side for Mermails/Wind-Up and other similar decks.

I would lose the monk-mag knights for 2 Kagetokage. It is instant setup for any rank four play and its a dark to be able to make Key Beetle with. I've been testing the deck a lot lately, and Kage is a great addition.

Don't you think that you should have an Exiton knight or a 101 in this deck?

Almost every deck should run Exciton and every deck should run 101.

however those cards together if you bought them would cost like $120 at their current values.... soooo that is likely the reason why you don't see it there.

That's a serious necrobump there. I've always found Kage sub-par in any deck tbh. It's probably just my luck, but its often the only monster in my hand which leads to obvious problem. Monk and Arma at least are monsters that can work independently. That's my opinion though.

101 should be. I posted this deck before they were released.

That would be a good reason. Them not being released at the time of posting would also be another :P. But seriously, 101 would be auto-include. I play on DN so money isn't a reason. I hate Exicton and refuse to play it.

but nobelswarm is soooo good (except a few decks) I wish I had him, and #101 IRL

BTW if you dont have a 101 you should play #50 in its place since the common follow up to 101 is to use your very own 101 against it. Black ship is the only comparable answer to 101 if you dont actually have a 101 (like most of us)

tl;dr = black ship is the 101 slayer

Wooo someone who plays Umbrals as well!
Glad to see you already decided to ditch the useless peace of trash Wisp.

What I'd do is (just me tho):
- Ditch Zephyros:
He's really player preference. But with this deck you NEED, let me repeat, NEED, a 0 DEF DARK in your grave, ESPECIALLY if you're going 3 Dru's and 3 Chameleons.
- Ditch the Monk's
You force a veiler or Fiendish Chain, but you also -1 of important spells AND you have to waste a normal summon.

+0-3 Kagetokage
Combo with Armageddon Knight, send your Umbral AND get King of Imps for Chameleon, just so good. Also the rulings are similar to Gadgets if you're wondering. Plus he's a DARK himself.

+0-2 Armageddon Knight
Really meant to combo with Kagetokage, but without a 0 DEF DARK in your grave, this deck is literally slow as hell.

+0-1 Reinforcement of the Army
If you decide to go Armageddon / Photon Thrasher Route

+0-1 Dark Armed Dragon
He's player preference too, early game he is a BEAST. Gives your deck a non-Extra deck boss that banishes those non-0 DEF darks. Plus if you Double Umbral / Armegeddon + Kage / into King of Imps, AND have grave control with Dru, you can get him out pretty easy. If not just mill him with armegeddon.

Also, I'd recommend you add some Pot of Dichotomy. You run multi archetype, helps with recycling of chameleon and extra deck stuff. Of course this implies you drop some Recurring Nightmare.

Just my take on it though. Add me on DN via *SD*Gale for more idea sharing.
Glad to see another Umbral player again

I have a irrational hatred of Exicton because its a two Black Rose Dragon. I never use it though. Having that said though, Artifacts are starting to make me question that...

Yeah Wisp was bad...Blackwing is a sleeper card. It combos well with Safe Zone and Fiendish Chain. I never have that much a problem with it. It's got decent stats and a Dark. Dark Armed is really not that useful here I've found here. It's nice, but unnecessary. The Monk/Arma/Chain combo was something I found very helpful in Inzektors. I use a similar method here and it works wonders. I know Veiler's are a problem, but I never run into them and even then, I have defence to deal with them usually. Kage is a card I have horrendous luck with. It compounds already dead hands that this deck tends to have. When I tested it, I just wished it was a Monk or Armageddon Knight honestly. The only deck I've found it ok in was Gadgets and Reptile Rabbit, but even then it suffered from being dead far too easily. Dichotomy is interesting. I shall test...

I'll probably make a new thread with the updated version of the deck since I did this post in Early September and the meta was significantly changed since then and Konami have released some interesting XYZs/Synchro to test. Including that Dark Line Warrior Thing, HeartlandDraco and Beelze.
