True Draco in July 2017 OCG

True Dracos are far from dead but how well can they survive?

Demise True Draco 
============ Main Deck : 40 ============
Master Peace, the True Dracoslaying King x1
Dynamite Knuckle, the True Dracofighter x3
Majesty Maiden, the True Dracomage x1
Magma Dragon x2
Pot of Desires x2
Card of Demise x2
Terraforming x2
Pot of Duality x3
The Monarchs Stormforth x2
True Draco Succession x3
Disciples of the True Dracophoenix x3
Dragonic Diagram x1
Ethereal Wyrmterfall x3
Jar of Avarice x1
Revival of the True King x3
Apocalypse of the True Dracos x3
Imperial Order x1
Skill Drain x2
============ Extra Deck : 0 ============
Demise True Draco is still possible with Chicken Game, Revolving Stage and Waterfall of Dragon Souls. Return to the Frontlines can be used to trigger Magma Dragon's effect. To increase the count of Continuous Traps, Call of the Haunted can be used instead but I do not wish for Cosmic Cyclone/Mystical Space Typhoon to stand in my way.

With copies of cards lost the Forbidden & Limited list, one can always include 'Stun' negation cards to fill the void, such as Magic Drain and Solemn Strike. Both cards do not require discard cost which is optimal for a Card of Demise deck.

Jar of Avarice is something I am trying out, in a desperate attempt to re-summon Master Peace, the True Dracoslaying King once it is removed from the field.

Invoked True Draco
 ============ Main Deck : 43 ============
Master Peace, the True Dracoslaying King x1
Gameciel, the Sea Turtle Kaiju x1
Kumongous, the Sticky String Kaiju x1
Dynamite Knuckle, the True Dracofighter x3
Ignis Heat, the True Dracowarrior x1
Aleister the Eidolon Summoner x2
Ghost Ash & Beautiful Spring x3
Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit x2
Spellbook Magician of Prophecy x2
Maxx "C" x3
Instant Fusion x2
Harpie's Feather Duster x1
Mind Control x2
Terraforming x2
Eidolon Summoning Magic x2
Cosmic Cyclone x2
True Draco Succession x3
Disciples of the True Dracophoenix x1
Dragonic Diagram x1
Reckless Magic Circle x1
Revival of the True King x3
Apocalypse of the True Dracos x2
============ Extra Deck : 15 ============
Elysion the Eidolon Beast x2
Merkabah the Eidolon Beast x2
Magallanica the Eidolon Beast x2
Purgatorio the Eidolon Beast x2
Cocytus the Eidolon Beast x1
Raideen the Eidolon Beast x2
Caligula the Eidolon Beast x2
Constellar Ptolemy M7 x1
Abyss Dweller x1
============ Side Deck : 15 ============
Dogoran, the Mad Flame Kaiju x1
D.D. Crow x1
Effect Veiler x2
Interrupted Kaiju Slumber x1
Forbidden Chalice x2
Super Polymerization x1
Reckless Magic Circle x1
Imperial Order x1
Solemn Judgment x1
Solemn Warning x1

Sure, you can use Mind Control for Link Summoning. Then the Extra Deck would have to make way for Proxy Dragon or Decode Talker. Akashic Magician is harder to summon, needing two monsters with the same type, but considering the popularity of Mirror Matches involving Invoked True Draco, it isn't impossible. It could syngerise with the Kaiju monsters if that is the case.

This is just my proposed build and the one which I am comfortable with. It is optimised for going second so that it is easier to play with full playsets of Hand Traps. The opponent will also be more likely to have monsters in the graveyard for Invocation if I go second. 

The deck can afford to play Ghost Reaper & Winter Cherries if you want to. Plenty of Fusion Monsters can be removed for Denglong, First of the Yang Zing and Crystal Wing Synchro Dragon.

Instant Fusion is just something I am testing out. Summoning out Invoked Raijin and flip down a threat or bait a backrow/Hand Trap before dedicating to bigger plays.

Invoked-True Draco is currently looking to be the best option of the three. Banishing your opponent's Master Peace, the True Dracoslaying King could be a game winning play. With Mirror Matches being more and more common, a key strategy would be to decide when is best to use the opponent's Aleister the Invoker and when not to.


Metalfoes True Draco

Previously mentioned here.
 ============ Main Deck : 41 ============
Metalfoes Volflame x3
Metalfoes Goldriver x3
Metalfoes Silverd x3
Metalfoes Steelen x3
Master Peace, the True Dracoslaying King x1
Dynamite Knuckle, the True Dracofighter x2
Blackwing - Gofu the Vague Shadow x1
Ghost Ash & Beautiful Spring x2
Raremetalfoes Bismugear x2
Pot of Desires x2
Metalfoes Fusion x1
Terraforming x2
Super Polymerization x1
Scapegoat x3
True Draco Succession x1
Dragonic Diagram x1
Metalfoes Counter x2
Quaking Mirror Force x3
Revival of the True King x2
Metalfoes Combination x3
============ Extra Deck : 8 ============
Metalfoes Crimsonite x1
Metalfoes Orichalc x1
Metalfoes Mithrilium x2
Metalfoes Adamante x1
Fullmetalfoes Alkahest x1
The Phantom Knights of Break Sword x1
Super Quantal Mech Beast Grampulse x1
============ Side Deck : 11 ============
Maxx "C" x3
Mind Control x3
Cosmic Cyclone x2
Torrential Tribute x3
Kumongus the Sticky String Kaiju x2
Lullaby of Obedience x2

It is a possible option, but certainly not the best of the three since Pendulum Summoning got a pretty harsh nerf. Perhaps in the future when a FIRE Link Monster is made available, things will get better?
