Deck Construction: Skulls

^That's a Misfits reference btw^

I recently acquired a playset of the new Skull Servant support card, Wightmare, and I think it's a great time to build the deck.

We'll start with the base of the deck, Skull Servant support!
I'll be using 3 of each of these cards. Max Skull Servant seems bad, but there are plenty of ways to dump them in here.
Armageddon Knight can send a Skull Servant to the graveyard whenever it's summoned, and that's very important. We really don't want to draw those little guys. Mezuki is a decent ATK beater and acts as a Monster Reborn for your Zombies. Sangan simply searches any card in the deck except Mezuki and King of the Skull Servants.

Moving along to Spell Cards, these are the basic staples that will go in. 
Since this deck has decent potential to OTK, we'll add some enablers. Also since King is a level one monster, we can use an Equip Spell to let him attack directly. One for One lets us discard a useless monster from the hand to Special Summon a King from the deck. Allure is draw power for all the dark monsters, and RotA searches out Armageddon Knight. Gold Sarcophagus lets us search any component of the OTK. Foolish Burial works like Armageddon Knight, and Book of Life revives any of the Zombies we send to the graveyard. And finally, Burial from a Different Dimension puts back any Skull Servants that might have been removed with King's effect or Allure, along with a used Mezuki.
Moving on to the Traps, we have some basic staples and that's about it.
So, for the final deck list, we have
Monsters: 17
3x Armageddon Knight
3x Skull Servant
3x King of the Skull Servants
3x The Lady in Wight
3x Wightmare
1x Mezuki
1x Sangan

Spells: 17
1x Monster Reborn
1x Dark Hole
1x Giant Trunade
1x Cold Wave
1x Foolish Burial
1x Allure of Darkness
1x Burial from a Different Dimension
1x One for One
1x Reinforcement of the Army
2x Mystical Space Typhoon
2x Gold Sarcophagus
2x Opti-Camouflage Armor
2x Book of Life

Traps: 6
1x Mirror Force
1x Torrential Tribute
1x Solemn Judgment
1x Call of the Haunted
2x Bottomless Trap Hole

This is only one way to run the deck, maybe next time I'll build a faster version using milling cards like Magical Merchant.


  1. I have actually wanted to make a Skull Servant deck for a while but never got around to doing so.

    Nice Article.

  2. Nice deck, although a 'Gravity Bind' would be good here.
