First topic message reminder :

Monarchs


"Monarch" is a series of lv 5 or higher monsters, also know as "Emperor" in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V Manga, each possessing an attribute reflective of the element they control, each possessing 2400/2800 attack and 1000 defense. They are supported by a series of monsters called "Vassals", smaller versions of the monarchs, each with 800 attack and 1000 defense, dedicated to summoning their larger counterparts. They are used by The Light Brigade members in the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime and by Silvio Sawatari in the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V anime and manga.

Playing Style
Monarchs as a deck, focus exclusively on tribute summoning, at the expense of their extra deck in most cases, gaining advantage by picking apart the opponent's field with each individual monarch. Alongside this, the monarchs tend to forma nigh-impenentrable wall through such powerful cards as "March of the Monarchs" Whilst also locking the opponent out of the game with such cards as "Dominion of the Legendary Monarch" and "The Monarchs Erupt". Monarchs can also make strong game-ending pushes by tribute summoning multiple tiimes in a turn, or tribut summoning on the opponent's turn, making them a deadly threat indeed. 


~


Weaknesses
Certain floodgates, such as Mask of Restrict, can shut down Monarchs completely, whilst cards that shut down their tribute engine effectively cripples the deck, as it renders them almost incapable of summoning their monarchs. Decks with a high amount of Spell and Trap disruption, such as artifacts, can also pose a real problem for monarchs, given the amount they rely on their various floodgate cards.

I decided to play few matches in this newest format on my study breaks and these guys were pain in the ass if I don't get some backrow in the first hand. Also, I haven't updated my deck in years so there was no side for these bitches.
 Still, nothing I play got hit so I didn't touch main at all exept switching Crush Card Virus with Emptyness from side to main. I'm usually able to pull Dark Law almost every turn + if I get Fiendish Chain or Mind Crush, they're pretty much screwed, after siding I just put in 3 Masks of Restric and few Spell Shatering Arrows and deck it DEAD. Once again I'm actually impressed how new decks arrive and I still have decent Match-ups and shit like, I never loseeee

monarchs can get annoying..... but i find them quite easy.... even if they have a good match-up

With Link format in its very early stages , where not a lot of link monsters are released, Monarchs are one of the popular decks that budget players play now. The interaction between True Draco's and Monarchs with Domain is also something to be aware of (Ignis is a 2400-1000 monster thus can be comboed with the monarch spells) and is a "go to" deck to people that refuse to play the new archetypes. What do you think, are Monarchs meta now(even with some key cards being limited)?
