Sets


"Fabled", known as "Demon Roar God" (()(ごう)(しん) Magōshin) in the OCG and as "Fiend Roar Deities" in some video games, are an archetype of LIGHT Fiend-Type monsters (with the exception of "The Fabled", who are known as "Demon Roar God Beasts" in the OCG and are Beast-Type) began in Japan as Duel Terminal Promos in Duel Terminal - Demon Roar God Revival!! and continued in Duel Terminal - Champion of Chaos!!. Their effects focus on discarding cards from their controller's hand to the Graveyard to activate their effects. It should be noted that although these creatures are "demonic," they are all LIGHT monsters believed to resemble the archetypal Fallen Angels from the Bible. However, they all have masks, which makes them resemble the monsters of the Spanish legend that the Hollows of the Bleach series were created from.

They are similar to the "Dark World" Archetype in that the Monsters thrive off of effects that discard; however, unlike Dark World, all "Fabled" Monsters will benefit off of any discard, even for cost. Even though cards like "Dark World Dealings" can be used with "Fabled" monsters, it's best to keep a high monster count, and use their own effects to Special Summon them. The archetype also greatly benefits from cards like "Tour Guide From the Underworld", which gets "Kushano" to the grave as quick as possible, and sets up for Rank 3 Xyz Monsters, such as "Leviair the Sea Dragon" and "Number 17: Leviathan Dragon". Though these Xyz support the deck, the main focus is Synchros, such as "Fabled Ragin", "Formula Synchron" and "T.G. Hyper Librarian", in order to maintain the card advantage lost by summoning those monsters.

Play Style

"Fabled" Decks can be very versatile. Because of their potential to abuse special summons and also being a LIGHT Fiend-Type archetype, there are a lot of cards to support them. The key to a successful Deck is to control the field while slowly gaining advantage for powerful finish.

"Beckoning Light" is by far the best tool in "Fabled" arsenal. It lets you discard your Fabled monsters while getting another ones from your Graveyard. You can send Fabled monsters from the deck to the graveyard by using Lightsworn monsters, "Card Trooper" and "Foolish Burial".

Both "Phoenix Wing Wind Blast" and "Raigeki Break" are really handy for this deck, letting you to disrupt your opponent's plays and discard a "Fabled" Monsters. By combining them with "The Fabled Catsith", you get a powerful removal tool.

"Tour Guide From the Underworld" lets you get "Fabled Kushano" for Xyz summons, setting up the Graveyard with both "Fabled Kushano" for its effect and DARK Monsters for Chaos Monsters.

As Fabled monsters can swarm the field without using up your Normal Summon, and because they lack good destructive plays, it's a good choice to add "Caius the Shadow Monarch" to remove the opponent's cards while getting a monster with good ATK, which can be later used as a Synchro Material and DARK for "Chaos" support. You can go further and add "Raiza the Storm Monarch" to combine it with "Phoenix Wing Wind Blast".

Your keys to stop your opponent's OTK are "Gorz the Emissary of Darkness", "Tragoedia", and "Battle Fader". Just like "Caius the Shadow Monarch", they are DARK and can be used as a Synchro Materials.

Being a LIGHT monsters, "Fabled" benefit from "Shining Angel" and "Honest", which can be returned from the Graveyard by Beckoning Light.

Another way around is to add T.G engine ("T.G. Warwolf" and "T.G. Striker") and focus on a Beast-Type support (like "Horn of the Phantom Beast") to make a good use of "The Fabled" sub-archetype.

To benefit from Fabled Monsters that remain in the Graveyard, you could add incredibly offensive and defensive cards like "Sephylon The Ultimate Time Lord", as more than ten Monsters in the Graveyard is a piece of cake for this Deck. There are Fiend-Type Monsters such as "Snipe Hunter" and "Stygian Street Patrol" which then help you swarm the Field after summoning these stronger Monsters.

Recommended Cards

Fabled Deck

Ragin Turbo Deck

"Ragin Turbo Deck" is a Deck that makes use of the effect of "Fabled Ragin" to draw cards. Because its effect allows its controller to draw up to two cards, a Deck that can use cards quickly or set a large number of cards to generate later Card Advantage is important. The main way to Summon is to discard "The Fabled Cerburrel" and "The Fabled Ganashia" with the effect of "The Fabled Chawa" and to Normal Summon the second one. This deck has the potential to create an OTK with Synchro Monsters.

Weaknesses

"Forbidden Graveyard", "Soul Drain", "Necrovalley" and/or "The End of Anubis" alone can severely slice into "Fabled"s because such monsters whose effects activate when discarded transpire while they're in the Graveyard. This archetype's LIGHT-Attribute can also be capitalized on via "Light-Imprisoning Mirror" the "Allies of Justice", some of the "Koa'ki Meirus" and "Penumbral Soldier Lady"--"Lady"'s effect alone is enough to defeat every "Fabled" monster unless "Fabled"s get an offensive boost. A substantial count of "Fabled"s on the roster also have superficial ATK, making them prey for cards like "King Tiger Wanghu" and "Deck Devastation Virus", which can plug up Synchro Summons by putting away key Tuners like "Ceburrel", "Rubyruda" and "Chawa". "Yami" may also lend a helping hand as 200 amputated ATK off offensive stats could be a Hail Mary in a pinch.

"Skill Drain" and "Mind Drain" can be used against any "Fabled"s with effects that respectively activate on the Field or in the Hand (i.e "Grimro" and "Nozoochee" in the Hand.) "Protector of the Sanctuary" can also cease "Fabled Ragin"'s one-time Draw replenish as well as any "Fabled"s that can search other "Fabled"s from the Deck. This can be coupled with "Drop Off" and "Drastic Drop Off" to further encumber their use, provided that aforementioned cards like "Light-Imprisoning Mirror" and "Soul/Mind Drain" are active so that "Fabled"s can't spring their effects when discarded. "Return", if any of the said Grave interdictors aren't active, can also stall and shun "Krus"'s and "Leviathan"'s Graveyard salvages by forcing the retrieved card(s) into the Deck

"Goblin of Greed" can also impede "Fabled"s because it will restrict them from being discarded as a Cost, hence making it more laborious to use them. Another adequate combatant candidate can be "Magical Thorn" to chastise "Fabled" discards with Life Points damage.
