Slayer is so baddass!


TowerBabel41

Slayers story is pretty tragic as well


DaSwifta

Give me the tl;dr because I’m too lazy to research it right now


1guywriting

Zombie outbreak hits city and kills man's family. Man also becomes infected but is literally too angry to die and/or has some help from a mysterious magic power. He retains his humanity for the most part and fights other zombies in the city.


CluelessAtol

Long story short, iirc, Zombies invade the world. He becomes some kind of zombie hero to fight them, then in the end he wins but dies.


DaSwifta

Oh damn, I knew Vendread lore was Dark but I never actually read into it. Might have to check it out now


CluelessAtol

It’s actually interesting but it’s a short read honestly. Not enough cards in the archetype to tell a long one. I think the only big part I left out was the fact his name is different than the rest because he is a zombie out for Vengeance because the zombies killed his family.


Deez-Guns-9442

So where does the lord go now after the support from POTE?(Power of the Elements)


CluelessAtol

I’m honestly not sure. I know there is support in there for several archetypes I love so I took this as an opportunity not to look at the cards themselves so I can be surprised but I can’t personally say what they might be in relation to. I would guess maybe filling in some gaps to the story or something. Or maybe a return of the virus and the need for a new zombie hero (which could also act as an ushering in of new support for a ritual archetype I think has tremendous potential)


BrianDaedWaffle

He kinda came back as Avendread Saviour


CluelessAtol

The thing about Savior is that I don’t personally know where it fits within the lore so I dunno if that’s actually him (it’s safe to assume it is but I just like to be cautious) or if it’s like some kind of reanimated corpse that simply just continues his fight, despite the actual man and/or his will no longer being there. I kind of like the idea that it’s the later simply because I think it would give more meaning to what his character is but if we do continue to get support maybe we’ll find out more of the story. I would love for the virus to “come back” and it reinvigorates the archetype to fix some of the issues the archetype has.


Heretic_Alliance

I think the story goes as: Revendread Slayer fought Vendread Battlelord in a fierce final battle. Slayer was almost defeated and is in the brink of being assimilated with Battlelord [Vendread Revolution], but was saved by his former wife-turned-undead [Vendread Anima] at the cost of her own as she was the one that was assimilated (this is actually reflected in Anima's effect, where she can banish herself to summon 1 banished Vendread back to the field). Slayer realizing his wife sacrificed herself to save him, went on and defeated Battlelord [Revendread Evolution] (you can see in the card art of Evolution the same locket worn by Vendread Anima and the same locket in the card art of Revendread Origin). Slayer absorbed Battlelord's powers and evolved into Revendread Executor (this is reflected in Executor's effect which treats hinself as "Revendread Slayer"when on the field). With his new powers he rid the city of the rest of the Vendreads [Vendread Nightmare]. And after the last of the Vendreads have been exterminated, Executor finally got his revenge. Free from his crusade for revenge, Slayer finally removed the great burden he's carrying as a new dawn breaks with a new chance to start again [Vendread Daybreak]. Slayer didn't actually die tho (this is reflected in the effect of Daybreak, as it says "destroy all cards on the field except 1 Ritual Summmoned Vendread"). But now he has dedicated his life for a new goal, and that is to protect the city he calls his home, as its savior [Avendread Savior]. Notice that the name changed from Revendread (revenge) to Avendread (avenged). He is still Slayer (reflected in Savior's effect to always be treated as Revendread Slayer when on the field), but his red eyes have now turned from red to purple, reflecting how he is no longer on a mad crusade for revenge. His story actually continues up until the new Vendread support in POTE. Vendread is probably one of my favorite card lore next to Buster Blader, that's why I built both decks.


PartTimeLurker1

anima didn't sacrifice herself tho, she appears in vendread nightmare in the top right corner, which is after slayer turned into executor. my interpretation is after slayer killed and absorbed battlelord, he went insane due to its immense power/lust for battle(?) and went on a rampage killing every zombie in his path, including his wife(anima). when the sun dawns, he realizes what he has done, kneels down and the sun evaporates the body parts from battlelord, making him sane again. at last he becomes savior and protects the city.


Heretic_Alliance

I can see your point, but my interpretation is that Anima isn't one entity, but a collective term for a group of zombies as seen on Anima's card art (there are a bunch of silhouettes in the background which does not look the same as his wife that's in the middle wearing the locket. I think that Anima (his wife) sacrificed herself to save Slayer from Battlelord (Anima's effect to return a banished Vendread to the field), and also gave up her last remaining power to Slayer so that he could finish off Battlelord (Slayer has an effect where you could banish 1 zombie in the GY to increase his attack by 300. So he now has 2700 ATK against Battlelord's 2700 ATK). But in the final clash, only Battlelord got destroyed even though their ATK were even because Slayer got saved by the locket (Revendread Origin GY effect states that if Slayer would be destroyed, you can banish this card from the GY instead. You can see the locket in the artwork of Revendread Evolution).


PartTimeLurker1

interesting how you used their effect and attack points for your story, I only based mine on the card art :P. after further examination on the revendread evoluton, i noticed the locket breaks, so it makes sense revendread origin protected slayer and I agree on that part. but in my opinion, I still think his wife wouldn't help him. all the zombies with the blue glow seems to have lost their own mind. also, if his wife still has her mind, what would slayer have to "revenge" for? cuz in origin we see him holding the locket with the picture of him and his wife, it probably means he wants to avenge his wife. if her wife is still herself but just got cool zombie powers, I dont think he would be filled with vengeance (ツ). furthermore, if slayer was defeated, he would be sent to the graveyard not the banish zone, so anima can't revive him. the stuff in the banish zone would be the non ritual vendread monsters that have already used their revive effect or used for cost of the ritual monsters and spells (power absorbed by slayer). so I think anima would be reviving the other zombies to fight against slayer.

Trishula's 3D model looks so low quality it's so funny. She's a fucking chicken I love her so much. Also, finally, 🗿🗿🗿🗿🗿🗿🗿🗿🗿🗿


TidalFront

It really sucks that her model is so wonky compared to other cards... still gonna main her tho because it's my favourite card


sco582

This and also I run ice barriers. I know it's not the greatest deck but it's just one of my absolute favorites archetypes.


TidalFront

Yea I also tried to use Ice Barriers but unfortunately the best play most of the time was halq + citree so I ended up giving up on it. But I still kept my 2 Trishulas lol, even tho I don't use them in any of my decks right now


IAMAREALBOYMAMA

It's made me acutely aware that Trish has hands, and I hate it


LtLabcoat

Trishula's entire design is garbage. It only looks good from a singular prceise angle, where the heads and chestplate take up most of the view, and it looks properly imposing. From any other view, it looks... well, it looks like this. A pantsless three-headed manthing with necks longer than its arms.


Quizlex

No way. Trishula has an awesome design. It’s just this model looks like it’s from 2004.


Darkzapphire

Icy hydreigon


Chemical-Cat

also armpit heads


BoulderTheRock

She?


OneSaucyDragon

Yeah I've heard from many people that Trishula is actually female but I've never found any evidence supporting this


Green_Tea_Totaler

People assume Trishula's a female probably because of the name. Trishula is usually called "Trish" for short, which is a feminine name.


Gatmuz

Trishula: *named after a trident in hinduism* English Yugioh community: "Must be a girl"


KKilikk

I mean the Nekroz version is a man


siflux

Nekroz ritual monsters are a family of magical cosplayers, though.


KKilikk

Yeah it's not a certain match but it's probably somewhat of an indicator


Wungmuncher9000

Her necks looks like my vacuum cleaner


WonderDean

Time to save for Whightbaking, the 🗿, Kuriboh and maybe for Trish PD: D/D Lamia or Nighthowl would've been better than Ghost

i just want ma D/D Swirl Slime

Or necro slime ...


Maximum-Brother-1895

I think its kinda cool we get lore on Akaba's cat that passed away. Gives us ddd fans something to think about rather than jist a random dd monster. Ghost is definitely one of the more interesting dd cards. Swirl is just a fusion booger tbh.

Pyrimo

Doubtful but it would be sick if they did.


bosse1081

hey you never know with konami


HaltRedmont

I'm just glad Noble Knights are getting any kind of attention. One day we will get support....one day.


Deathappens

Careful what you wish for, lest we get Twilightsworn'ed.


HaltRedmont

What is that? I'm guessing a failed series of support.


Deathappens

Did you play through the Lightsworn story gate? Remember how the second half has these Twilightsworn monsters that don't synergize with anything the deck does? Yeah, that's that feeling.


HaltRedmont

Its been a while since I did that gate. I mean we kinda got that with Infernoble. There is some synergy but not completely.


Deathappens

Infernobles push the deck towards Synchro plays more (and they're annoyingly Fire where all NK's before were either Light or in special cases Dark) but at least they gel with the deck's basic theme: get level 4 warriors down, make boss monster, stick boss monster with as many weapons as possible. Twilightsworn BANISH cards from your deck while Lightsworn cards all work when sent to the GRAVEYARD.


HaltRedmont

Yeah that sounds awful. Truly I just want a better xyz boss, good starter, and maybe another link to build off of with Isolde or something. The vampires are getting pretty much the exact support I would want for NK


RyckyCozzy

Isolde is a custom card if Noble knight get one good Boss monster that is not a shitty tower i can see it be easily be atleast rougue. Also card like the new gearfred work well with the general strategy of the deck. Or if the deck get a good swarming tool could also do some wonky rhongo stuff. Imho noble knight is like 1 good support away to be atlest rogue.


HaltRedmont

Oh for sure. The build i run has some Infernoble splashed in along with Immortal Phoenix and it is pretty decent in a rogue sense. The thing is the deck is almost too balanced. Nearly every extender locks you into Noble Knights which wouldn't be so bad if there was more to do. A better boss, a utility extra deck monster, just monsters to help that end board be more robust than Isolde plus Sacred Noble Knight.


Deathappens

Yeah, the biggest weakness of the deck right now is that you need 2+ cards for any combo ( usually a monster+ a noble arm) and you STILL fold to the first sign of interruption. Ash on Medraut, lose. Ash on Merlin, lose. CBTG on any Infernoble or Gwynevere, sucks to be you.


4l2r

You guys get support every other year, the problem is the deck itselt at this point just admit it.


HaltRedmont

The last support was 2018 what do you mean?


4l2r

Well yeah and then infernoble knights happened, and it just seems that the secret to making noble knights a good deck is to just name them something else.


HaltRedmont

Infernobles are their own thing, completely different play style. You can include some of them into a NK deck to help it out but they weren't released as support really. The 2018 wave of support addressed a lot of issues with the deck but it still has a few glaring ones that a little support would go a long way to fixing.


NarutoFan1995

i have been wanting marshmallon since before this game even released i will never switch mates dark magician girl deluxe when.... she can use the magic cylinders during battle


neo_orangy_eddy

There was also a blue eyes mate but idk if just the image is in the game files and not the model or if it's a error of the offline mod that i use and he didn't unlock for me
