Choices (Before i discuss choices people should realize when playing this deck even when opening swap frog you are a turn behind vs the meta. You don't place yourself ahead at all you just send a treeborn and then if the monarch summon next turn resolves then your playing yugioh. The reason Im saying this is because without a Monarch having swap frog and treeborn do nothing.)
3 Light and Darkness Dragon - You need this card to keep up this format. Negating cards is way to important.
Dupe Frog - Card sucks. Yes it can grab you the swap but your a turn behind if you were already setting this. Its not good to play cards as just in case I don't open this. Standard 1st turn summons won't even kill this and to make sure your not falling beind you must tribute this next turn.
Mobius - IMO shouldn't need discussing as Dragons are gone. Firefist is a matchup
DDS - Dead Dude Spirit is way too good. When you live a turn vs a huge Mermail Geargia Harpie Infernity Field g1 this card is great.
2 Trag - Just because evilswarms is a deck doesn't mean this cards are bad. This guy makes rank 7's happen easier and allows you to push through fields with only one or none monarchs as he's sitting from 24 to 3600 attack. This card also makes Fire Fist waste Tenki's and Tensu's
2 Duality - I know it's pretty important for you to have swap frog, but 2 duality is good enough.
The third is usually dead and positions in which you need duality are usually: Your Ahead , You Need to Grab Monarch For Soul Ex in Hand, Burei on Field and Treeborn Not Needed, Crimson Blader, and First Turn.
2 MST not 3? - Im iffy on this I think i'll go to 3 because of 3 Chains this format but 2 was good enough for me because of Ladd.
Creature Swap - Beats Master of Blades, Can Grab the Gaios, Makes the no Monarch hands less of a problem, Makes Huge Fields way eaiser to play out of.
Radiant - This card is better for Monarchs than Dust imo. The deck really never has a field thats really important to keep like other decks with so much presence. Radiant can protect itself from the Crimson which Stardust can't and allows you to save Monarchs for Bounzer/7 Plays next turn still. Then you always have to Scrap Radiant Treeborn Play.
Cards Im iffy with Main and Extra
1. Sword Breaker - beats a deck on your turn just that 1 turn lol
1. Exa-Beetle - is it worth loosing 2 monarchs over? was bounzer/7 better?
1. Jinzo (Negating Traps is So Good and This over Mobius is the biggest issue. This allows my monarchs to not be hit by chain and allows me to save MST for other cards other than Chain.
On the side Monarchs have lots of choices. This deck hates FF and Bujins and so Smashing Ground and Mal Cats are some sides for them. As well Overworked.
Im testing Overworked now and I feel getting rid of the Monsters in the FF matchup is just as good as the MCAT. Thing about MCAT though if they Gorilla Summon it can be popped and now I loose but Overworked can be chained. Smashing on Yamatos is great and this deck provides great stress to Monarchs. Crossouts might find room over Messengers since every deck this format seems to be ok passing a turn or 2 and since Geargia is a deck I need to really have cards for it. Mermails is pretty much good for Monarchs as Maxx C is our way to swap frog if needed as well as having all the battle stoppers and End of Anubis.
Thanks for the comments on helping this deck for the new format as well as helping me with anything I missed.
POST LVAL NOW THIS IS MY BUILD
3 Swap Frog
2 Sea Lancer
2 Draw Frog
2 Mega Mobius
2 SOul Ex
2 C Swap
This Main was only a test and was to see the viability of molding in which draw to many with only 8 Targets was meh and Tributing for a jinzo,sea lancer, etc triggered molding and so I found that to me 3 MArch was way more important that molding. This might change as I might go back up to 2. But room is tight.
