[Deck] Dark Dust Stealer

The strongest ever tribute monster (Dark Magician of Chaos) is not around anymore and is missed very very much.

I was using Caius/Mobius at first but eventually I ran out of monster to tribute. Yes some people's deck are really that defensive (aka humji) plus they had a lot of monster removal. True story.

Suddenly I remember this particular monster which I used very much long ago.

Dark Dust Spirit/砂塵の悪霊
2200/1800 6 stars
Spirit Monster
This card cannot be Special Summoned. During the End Phase of the turn that this card is Normal Summoned or flipped face-up, return it to its owner's hand. When this card is Normal Summoned or flipped face-up, destroy all other face-up monsters.

It works naturally well with Level Stealer. Sure it clears the whole board including your own little bugs. But the good thing is, you can summon them back anyway (assuming not bottomless-ed). With card of Safe Return, yah the usual madness. This are all theory crafting btw and is by no mean to be taken too seriously.

It also works well with Book of Moon, it can still clear the field when flipped up. Not reverse summoned. Now I am happy and can continuously Advance summon every turn ^_^

I am too lazy to form a Synchro pile. And think of your own side deck.

Well anyways this is still in testing and probably won't work too well.

Other Tribute monsters to consider:

- Light Emperor
Destroying your own level stealers is woot, probably great in combo decks but hmm...
- Hinokagutsuchi
This is super rewarding, but I was playing against a Light deck. I hate Honest! >=(

Any suggestion for crazy overpowered tribute monsters?


Edit: I have converted it into a more Barbaros friendly deck. And this seems to have super Match up against GB without any Dimension involved. Other than that, I got raped by BF. Dark Dust Spirit would be more appropriate to sub in with Material against them.

And also why Oppression. It doesn't interrupt Level Stealer. According to the text, it says select a Level 5 and above monster to Activate. Reduce the star by 1 and special summon it.

Oppression negates the activation entirely so no Star is deducted. Therefore, you can summon it again in case your opponent negates it and then realise it is pointless.
