A Normal Monster Deck, or Normalcy Deck, is a deck that takes advantage of the cards that benefit, and the benefits of, Normal Monsters. Especially concerning the released Strike of Neos "Gene-Warped Warwolf" and Photon Shockwave "Alexandrite Dragon" , Normal Decks have never been as formidable as back when Effect Monsters were quite rare. Normal Monsters are an archetype all their own, with their support cards granting them extraordinary effects over real Effect Monsters.

Most Normal decks are built as Beatdown Decks, as most Effect Monsters cannot compete with the high attack power of these monsters. Your monsters have no abilities of their own, but there are plenty of Spell and Trap Cards, and a few Effect Monster Cards, that can make up for that.

However, not all cards used in Normal Monster Beatdown Decks need to be Normal Monsters. "Skilled Dark Magician", "Slate Warrior", and several other Effect Monsters may also be added.

Low Level Normal decks rely on low-powered monsters and cards that allow them to continuously swarm the field, overwhelming the opponent with relatively weak yet deadly-supported monsters. This kind of deck can perform an OTK with "The Law of the Normal" and "Triangle Power" or "Thousand Energy". Although these monsters lack attack strength, they can become even stronger than their beatdown counterparts with "Amulet of Ambition", "Sword of the Soul-Eater", and "Attack of the Cornered Rat". Furthermore, they can still attack while being protected by "Gravity Bind", etc.

With Strike of Neos' release, an effective combination of Normal and Ritual monsters can be achieved. The Ritual Spell Card, "Advanced Ritual Art" will allow you to Ritual Summon any Ritual Monster in your hand by sending Normal Monsters taken from the deck to the graveyard, as long as the taken monsters are the same level as the monster Ritual Summoned. Furthermore, there are several Ritual monsters specifically geared towards Normal Monsters. "Cú Chulainn the Awakened" has the ability to banish Normal Monsters to increase its ATK by the ATK of the banished monster, until the beginning of your next Standby Phase. Using Normal Monsters such as "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" or "Tri-Horned Dragon" can power-up this card to over 3000 ATK. When the Ritual Monster "Lycanthrope" does battle damage to the opponent's Life Points, it has the ability to damage the opponent's Life Points by 200 multiplied by the number of Normal Monsters in your Graveyard.

Low Level Normal Monster Decks have also received a boost from the release of "Rescue Rabbit", which allows them to perform an instant Xyz Summons.

"Gem Merchant" is another great addition to a Normal EARTH monster Deck by sending this card from your hand to your Graveyard, you can increases your monsters ATK and DEF by 1000 during battle. This can surprise your foe after they had declared an attack to your monster.

Normal Monsters also have good drawing power due to cards such as "Heart of the Underdog", "Common Charity", and "Coach Goblin".

In the right situation, Tyrant's Throes can leave an opponent completely locked, since he won't be able to summon any Effect-Monsters (which most current decks use), only set or flip them.

Another note is that Gemini monsters can be very useful in this style of deck since they are usually treated as Normal Monster cards, but still have effects at your disposal if needed.

Low Level Xyz/Synchro Normalcy

This Deck abuses low Level Normal Tuner monsters and Level 3 and lower Normal Monsters. With most Spell Cards and Trap Cards being able to Special Summon back the monsters from the Graveyard, the Deck could be Turbo Synchro swarm Deck. Besides the Tuner monsters in the Deck being the most important, the next most important card in this Deck would be "Enchanting Fitting Room" which quickly swarms the field and thins the Deck faster without penalizing yourself.

The Extra Deck contains Level 5 to 6 Synchro Monsters and Rank 3 Xyz Monsters.
