The Brotherhood of Gladiators - Rebirth of Anti-Meta 2014.

Whats up DGZ? For the last few days I've been working on a new Gladiator Beast deck. When I scrolled through my DN looking for a base, I found my old Fire Gladiator deck. It has considerably changed since March 2013 Format or how ever long ago it was. I initially wanted to build GladTrix but they aren't aggressive enough for my taste, as opposed to this; extremely control and advantaged based, but it absolutely steamrolls everything else in raw advantage. Want to add 1-2 Fire Formation - Tensen to the main, if anyone can help me fit I'd appreciate it.
Main Deck: 40
Monsters: 15
3 Coach Soldier Wolfbark
3 Brotherhood of the Fire Fist - Bear
1 Brotherhood of the Fire Fist - Gorilla 
2 Gladiator Beast Laquari
2 Gladiator Beast Darius
2 Gladiator Beast Equeste
1 Gladiator Beast Murmillo
1 Gladiator Beast Bestiari
Spells: 12
3 Mystical Space Typhoon
3 Forbidden Lance
3 Fire Formation - Tenki
2 Fire Formation - Gyokkou
1 Fire Formation - Tensu
Traps: 13
3 Gladiator Beast War Chariot
3 Black Horn of Heaven
2 Dust Tornado
2 Seven Tools of the Bandit
1 Compulsory Evacuation Device
1 Solemn Warning
1 Bottomless Trap Hole
Side Deck: 15
3 Rainbow Kuriboh
1 Cyber Dragon
1 Chimeratech Fortress Dragon
2 Light-Imprisoning Mirror
2 Shadow-Imprisoning Mirror
2 Dna Surgery
2 Mistake
1 Soul Drain
1 The Transmigration Prophecy
Extra Deck: 15
3 Brotherhood of the Fire Fist - Tiger King
1 Brotherhood of the Fire Fist - Cardinal
1 Number 101: Silent Honor ARK
1 Evilswarm Exciton Knight
1 Number 50: Blackship of Corn
1 Maestroke the Symphony Djinn
1 Gagaga Cowboy
1 Lightning Chidori
1 Ice Beast Zerofyne
2 Gladiator Beast Gyzarus
1 Gladiator Beast Heraklinos
1 Gladiator Beast Essedarii
Both the Fire Fist and the GB engines have amazing main and Extra deck support all around and both have so much synergy together. The way they fit together is obvious, so I'll explain the things that aren't as obvious.
-3 Black Horn of Heaven
Stops all those Synchro and Xyz plays. Picks up the workload before War Chariot has to.
-2 Dust Tornado
Fire Fist and Spellbooks. The two most important matchups right now. Hits them both. Very good main deck choice. Hits pesky generic backrows and floodgates like Skill Drain and Mistake.
-2 Seven Tools of the Bandit
Stops my opponents stuff chain-ables, mostly floodgates and stuff like Geargiagear & Abyss-sphere. Good cards are good and put in a ton of work.

Too many normal summons and why play three chariot when half your normal summons are actually not gbs? That's asking for some awful hands

What does this actually offer over pure Fire Fist?

You can pretend GBs are back when you luck someone out of a win with it.

"it absolutely steamrolls everything else in raw advantage."

EVERYTHING else? That's sure a bold statement

My eyes.


Ok this doesn't work. Too many normal summons which just doesn't work in ygo anymore. Also a lot of conflicting cards like War Chariot when you're using a full Fist engine.

This looks like you were too broke to complete Fire Fist, but wanted to lie to yourself and say that you had it. Where do I even start?

1: remove the Wolfbarks. They have no real use in Gladiator Beast.
2: remove the ff engine completely. It's just a bunch of useless normal summons at this point.
3. Remove the 3 Black Horn. You're never going to need 3 of them. Ever.
4. Remove the 2 dust tornado. You're not going to need them mained.
5. Add Retiari. Hits away Inzektor Hornet, enemy Wolfbark/Sombre/Kerykion targets.
6. Add Thunder King. You can usually sit on it for a while to stop your opponent from doing anything important. You can play around it.
7. Add Book of Moon. An absolute staple in GB.
8. Bujin shits all over this deck between the cranes and the other bujinjis. Try 1-2 Smashing Ground.
9. -1 Tenki, add 2 Proving Ground. There are going to be times when searching Bestiari is too good.
10. GB. Needs. Defensive. Traps. 2 mirror force, 2 Waboku and 1-2 Dimensional Prison is recommended.
11. This is personal preference here, but try 2 Safe Zone or 2 Horn of the Phantom Beast. Both are really good for the deck.
12. 2-3 Fiendish Chain. Staple.

Extra needs Diamond Dire Wolf.

Take Chimeratech out of the side and put it in the extra.

Rainbow Kuriboh is so stupid in this deck. Waboku, Mirror Force, Fiendish Chain and Dimensional Prison does its job rather well. You wouldn't need to side Transmigration if you played Retiari.

All in all, this looks like you just threw it together without testing it. No proving ground, no mirror force, 3 wolf bark 3 bear, 3 chariot and 3 black horn is dead hand breeding ground.
