Been messing with the Gem stuff since it's probably the quickest way to make the R4 Engine really go in the deck without Chain.
3 Assault Halberd/Thrasher
2 Thousand Blades
2 Garnet (For Brill Fusion)
3 Brilliant Fusion
Extra is pretty much standard R4s and 5s, 1 Gem-Knight Seraphanite (Additional Normal Summon), Naturia Beast, and Trishula.
Deck is extremely gimmicky, so it'll take some more time to work on stuff. Basic T1 stuff is setting up grave with Math or Brilliant. Ideal T1 is Brilliant dumping Juggler/Clown and Garnet. Bring out Seraphanite, additional summon Math/Level 4. You can make Ptolemaeus and go into whatever you really need for the turn. Usually I'll try to make a Beast turn 1 if I know what I'm playing against, but eh.
