I have seen this deck and it similar in terms of monsters. http://yugioh.wikia.com/index.php?title=Forum:Archlord_Deck&t=20100419014355
The original Premise of my deck was to simultaneously SHUT DOWN Blackwings and use something that was playable for me. There are at least three people I know who play Blackwings and it's fairly annoying for me: so I really want a specialist deck to just kill them. I'm going to list the individual strategy and ideas behind the cards I'm thinking of including. I'm unsure of proportions (2 copies? 3 copies?) and that is the secondary goal: The primary goal is to narrow down the list of card.
All monsters in the deck are Light/Fairy. Most have effects. The First card I include is Consecrated Light. Consecrated Light is specifically there to stop the normal/special summoning and attacking of Dark Monsters. This is meant to really hurt Blackwings since they require a field presence to do anything. 0 ATK and DEF means it can't be Trap Holed or Bottomless'd which is EXTREMELY nice.
Shadow-Imprisoning Mirror is the second trump card. It works differently in the sense that it negates the effects of just Dark Monsters. My deck is entirely unaffected by it because I will not be using Dark types, making it a win-win.
Lightning Vortex and Torrential Tribute are there for clearing the field. Since Blackwings revolve around swarming the field for synchro summons, I figure waiting until everything is there, and my opponet has a very bad hand, will literally turn the tables.
Archlord Kristya. Thank God for him being Featured, never would have heard of him otherwise. He's special summoned by having 4 Fairies in the graveyard (not too hard). Any NEITHER PLAYER CAN SPECIAL SUMMON. That means no synchros. Since my deck does not REVOLVE around synchros that isn't too much of a problem, but it'll be fun as well to see the reaction to Krisyta.
Honest: he's meant to dump himself in the graveyard to use Archlord's effect. By adding attack to monsters, not only do I get a temporary beat stick; I get another fairy in the grave.
The Sanctuary in the Sky is THE Field Spell for Fairies. It's basically one of Consecrated Light's effects but better: it applies to ALL Monsters for all battles. This means suiciding is a viable strategy. I may lose a monster, but isn't that a way of special summoning Kristya?
Soul of Purity and Light is the alternative to Freed the Brave Wanderer for crowd control: although not as well liked. It has 300 more ATK: but it can ONLY be Special Summoned by removing 2 Light monsters inthe grave from play.
Guardian Angel Joan serves 2 functions. She gives Gellenduo and Kaiser Seahorse another monster to ease into the field: and she HEALS. Not many monsters run more than 2800 ATK without some form of blatant support and for those rare occasions when they ARE higher I have Sanctuary. Solidariy boosts her to 3600 meaning I can cause up to a +3600 LP difference with ONE battle in most cases. And if I discard Honest...
Hanewata is a discardable Winged Kuriboh. While Winged covers all damage, Hanewata only covers Effect damage. But it can be used either turn, and dumps itself for Krisyta. It also allows for the rare synchro summon.
Athena true to her name is a goddess. Whenever a FAIRY monster is summoned, my opponet takes 600 life point damage. Did I mention this is a Fairy deck? I can swap out a fairy on my field for one in my graveyard. It helps that Gellenduo and Kaiser Seahorse make tributing for her easier.
[Victoria]] isn't that great at my first glance. Then I remember: EVERYONE RUNS STARDUST DRAGON. You kill a Stardust: you get a Stardust. As an added Bonus, my opponet is locked into picking Victoria as an attack target. Basically means I should run at LEAST two. That way they cover each other and all my opponet can do is sit there and go WTF?
Marshmallon is a really cheap card. When it's attacked, my opponet take it face down: they take 1000. Athena makes is even worse, meaning that a Flip Summon inflicts 1600 just for attacking it. The ONLY thing that worries me is Piercing Damage, but that's why I consider Hanewata, Winged Kuriboh, and The Sanctuary In The Sky. Sucks to be you Bora the Spear. Marshmallon and Sanctuary can stall so long as both survive.
Herald of Green Light, Herald of Purple Light, and Herald of Orange Light all do similar thing: dump themselves and one other monster to negate the activation of a Spell, Trap, or effect monster, respectively.
Advance Draw is for drawing cards. By tributing Krisyta or Avenging Parshath (see below), I get at LEAST one new card, and either Krisyta or a second new card. Trade-In is better, but I already have a copy of Advance Draw.
Waboku is for stalling in case I'm a bad scrape. It stops attacks. Yay.
United We Stand, Mage Power, and Solidarity are rather interesting. Mage Power boosts ONE monsters's attack by 800*# of monsters on my field; Solidariy boosts ALL monsters on my field by 800 provided that Freed the Brave Warrior is not in my graveyard. Mage Power boost one monster's attack again, but this time by increments of 500, and for each Spell/Trap on my field. But considering that I can run: Sanctuary, Field Barrier, Valhalla, AND Mage Power (plus: facedowns) I've converted almost any monster in my deck into a living nightmare for my opponet: even it's just Consecrated Light.
Airknight Parshath adds both Piercing and draw power.
Avenging Knight Parshath is a Synchro monster. Does Piercing and switches the position of opponet's monsters
Neo-Parshath, the Sky Paladin likes it's buddies has Piercing. It also extremely benefits from Santuary In The Sky, incrementing it's ATK/DEF when my lifepoints are higher than my opponets courtesy of both Joan and Athena.
Ignore cost restrictions or raritys. I need the functions of the cards to work well: not the actual buying. Thanks in advance! Lord ike 23:33, April 19, 2010 (UTC)

There you go. Now, it'll be easier to work with. Ummm... to start, your deck is all over the place. First thing is that The Sanctuary in the Sky is not a must for fairy decks so you can skip it especially since you are just running one copy. If you are trying to use it for an important purpose then try running more copies of it.
Correct me if I'm wrong but you are trying to build an Anti-Blackwing deck, right? Then try starting there. I see you have Consecrated Light and Shadow-Imprisoning Mirror which is good. I highly recommend you put in Royal Oppression as we are talking about the "Special Summon like there's no tomorrow" Blackwings.
Fixed Solemn Judgment and Mystical Space Typhoon; threw in some more traps; bought some of the cards. Added 2 Shining Angels for searching and a Soul of Purity and Light for crowd control since I doubt I'll find a Freed the Brave Wanderer.
Royal Oppression can't be activated in the damage step, so Shining Angel's summons are safe, and other then Archlord, your deck doesn't focus much on special summoning so you won't be as hindered by it. The object is to prevent your opponent from swarming with all their blackwings, and preventing them from accessing their synchro pool. Giving up a few LP and the ability to summon Krysta is a small price to pay to keep them completely locked down.
If you plan on using The Sanctuary in the Sky, you should probably run three, I've noticed that field cards even at 3 copies often don't get drawn when you need them.
You want to lock down Blackwings right? well, you'll want to run 3 Shadow-Imprisoning Mirror in that case, so you can draw it quickly and start the lockdown. Thorn of RosenYubel 22:26, April 22, 2010 (UTC)
But do I want a deck of 24 monsters and 26 s/ts with 50 cards?
Took out one Bottomless Trap Hole, considering throwing in another monster. I can throw back Terraforming in the line-up, but I can only but so many cards in the deck. I'm not quite sure if I can find three copies of Mirror: I only got to look through the effect monsters at my local card shop (I went through ALL OF THEM). I threw in Royal Oppression for you, and I threw in a second Marshmallon. Lord ike 23:00, April 22, 2010 (UTC)
If you are trying to stop special summons, try using 3 Kristyas. Gellenduo is a much better double tribute than Kaiser Sea Horse because it is also a fairy so it won't screw up your Solidarity and it cannot be destroyed in battle. As for its self destruction effect, The Sanctuary in the Sky can prevent any battle damage from battles involving fairies i.e. Gellenduo so even if it has low DEF, you won't have to worry about piercing damage.(E.g. Bora) Advance Draw is redundant, you can only use it effectively with Archlord Kristya, any other monster would be a waste. If you cant to get more draws you have set it up so that you can use it more consistently. Therefore, I suggest you use Trade-In, it not only lets you draw but also sends one more fairy to the Graveyard to summon Kristya faster. Always run 2 Honest whenever you can and you can scrap Shining Angel because you don't have a lot of suitable monsters for it to search.--Hide Head Turtle 06:19, April 25, 2010 (UTC)
I'm only using Kaiser Sea Horse and Advance Draw over Gellenduo and Trade-In simply because I don't have the latter pair. Once I get them, I will gladly use them. Shining Angel still draws Consecrated Light, the other Shining Angel, and Honest: which can always be returned in my Main Phase. Would Card Destruction be a better choice over Trade-In/Advance Draw? Lord ike 21:55, April 25, 2010 (UTC)
Then it would be bettter to just drop Advance Draw, than just running one. Card Destruction can be used here but remember to use it with care. Shining Angel is totally up to you but if you plan on using it for protection often then its best to run it at 3.Hide Head Turtle 11:04, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
- Just thought I'd throw in my 2 cents worth. Seems like running both Hanewata and Waboku is over kill. If you want to shrink the number of cards you have right now, I'd choose one over the other. --Kungfu-mama(talk) 17:15, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
How do you plan to use Watapon?--Hide Head Turtle 13:54, April 28, 2010 (UTC)
At this point it's really just filler and a circumstantial special summon. Say I get it from Advance Draw or Trade-In. I get a monster on the field. It's kind of useless outside of things like that: Hand Destruction, Card Destruction, Pot of Ace... Lord ike 21:44, April 29, 2010 (UTC)
I think Nova Summoner can find a place in your Deck since he can Special Summon monsters in Defense Position unlike Shining Angel.What's more,if you have The Sanctuary in the Sky out,you can get Airknight Parshath out if it gets destroyed.As another bonus,Piercing won't work against Gellenduo while said Field Spell is active.Jason Ng 01:45, May 6, 2010 (UTC)
