Lets ABUSE a random crappy card

Today, we will have a lecture on deck building.
Step 1: Find a card
Step 3: Put Filler into the empty slots.
Step 4: Tack on cool sounding name.
Today, we will abuse THIS GUY:

Archfeind of Gilfer/Gilfer Demon.
Its a Level 6, Dark, Feind, 2200 ATK, and 2500 DEF.
When this card hits the graveyard, you can activate its effect to make it an equip spell card and equip it to a monster on the feild.

In the Manga/Anime, its a card used by Yugi. Just like a ton of other cards.

Lets analyze this thing.
Archfiend of Gilfer...

Oh wow. Its an Archfeind.
What does that mean?
Archfeinds are a archetype. That means it just got a ton of support.
Archfeinds Roar. Trap form of instant reborn. AND it can attack.
Falling Down. Snatch steal, need I say more?
Pandemonium. When destroyed, this thing snatches you an Archfeind from the deck.

Level 6: One Tribute. Meaning it shares the ways of getting tribute fodder with monarchs. Mixing with monarchs? Ok.

Dark, Feind. Allures, DAD, Dark Creator, wow. Just tons of possiobilities there. Just very expensive possiobilities.

2200 ATK/2500 DEF. While this card is unsearchable by anything, its ATK is JUST above the Cyber Dragon line, and its DEF is just above the Monarch line. Meaning its nice and tough for 1/2 Attacks. Even more, if youve been throwing down monarchs for a few turns without busting this out, you can set it for a major suprise.

Now, the effect.
When this card is sent to the graveyard, you can activate its effect. You can then equip it to a monster on the feild, and this card will be treated as an equip spell card that decreases the ATK of the equipped monster by 500 points.

Lets analyze.
When this card is sent to the graveyard, you can activate its effect
Key words: CARD, CAN
Card. That means, it can be sent as a spell card, or a monster card. From ANYWHERE. It does NOT say feild. What does this mean? That means that you can use Foolish Burial, Dark Grepher, and Armageddon Knight to send this to the graveyard. As a spell card, you can use Manevolent Catastrophe, or other spell/trap removal to send it to the graveyard.
CAN. This means that it can miss the timing. How to avoid that? You cannot use Dark Grepher, since its sending for sp.summoning and sending from deck is costs. You also cannot tribute summon and activate its effect. However, you CAN tribute set to activate its effect. This means that if you tribute the monster equipped to this, however, you can still activate its effect.

You can then equip it to a monster on the feild, and this card will be treated as an equip spell card
Key word: This Card
This card: That means the equip spell is NAMED Archfiend of Gilfer. Falling down? Yes PLEASE.

that decreases the ATK of the equipped monster by 500 points.
Key words: None
Decreasing the ATK of an equipped monster may seem like nothing, but think.
That means that your Armageddon Knight can take down a stratos, while gettting under CCV. HOLY DAMN. On TOP of that, when Archfeind of Gilfer hits the graveyard from the battle, you can activate its effect and equip it to Armageddon Knight. 1400-500=900. 900 is less than 1000. Armageddon Knight is DARK. Use your imagination.

Effect as a whole? That means that Archfeind of Gilfer hitting the graveyard at any time can change the ATK of an attacking monster. Now, HOW can we acheive this? Easy. Spell/Trap removal that is activated on the declare attack step. Manevolent Catastrophe. Now, if your thinking, you MIGHT notice that equipping your own monsters with Archfeind of Gilfer will keep it on the feild, going from monster to monster, usually your enemies. Manevolent Catastrophe lets you instantly reset the equip targets for Gilfer. Example: Summon Armageddon. Equip Gilfer to enemy Stratos. Swing over stratos. Set manevolent. End. Enemy: Summon grepher, attack. You activate manevolent, and destroy gilfer, activating its effect, equipping Grepher, and the enemy hits himself/herself for 200. You proceed to say: "stop hitting yourself. Really. its bad for you."

Lets throw together a deck from this, including some filler.

1 Mebius The Frost Monarch
1 Raiza The Storm Monarch

3 Gaius Julius Caesar/Caius the Wicked Monarch

2 Armageddon Knight
1 Mystic Tomato

1 Sangan

1 Spirit Reaper

1 Necro Gardna

1 Morphing Pot
2 Mask of Darkness

3 Falling Down
1 Heavy Storm

1 Monster Reborn


2 Foolish Burial(for Gilfer)

1 Pot Avarice

1 Brain Control

3 Goblin Good Housekeeping

3 Reckless Greed
2 Manevolent Catastrophe
1 Threatening Roar

1 Archfeind's Roar

Total Cost:
3 Caius - 3o$
1 Mebius, 1 Raiza- 5$
Gorz- $10
1 Cyber Dragon - 3$
2 Armageddon - 5$
1 Sangan - $2
1 Monster Reborn - $3
3 Archfeind of Gilfer - $12
The rest SHOULD be free.
Total: 70$

Now, last but not least, the name.
Since this deck IS built around abusing Archfeind of Gilfer, lets keep Gilfer in the name, in a shortened form. Gil sounds nice.
Tei is the Japanese for Monarch. Since were mixing that into the deck, lets put that into the name.
Tei can be pronounced by a non Japanese as Tee.
Lets say that out loud(close doors)
Gil Tee.
Of course, Guilty is an adjective. You dont call something A Spongy, so lets tack on something else.
Since we ARE taking monsters away from the enemy, and trying to run some interfearance, its kinda control. So lets tack that onto the name, although we have no control whatsoever.
The completed product?

This. Meet Guilty Control. A new deck.
