Also known as The Army Of Darkness, this Deck type, as the name suggests, is based around the Field Spell, "Zombie World". This Deck is very versatile, as almost any of the Zombie staples can be splashed in. This Deck can be brutally effective against many other Decks, as "Zombie World", as well as changing all your opponents monsters on the field and in the Graveyard into Zombies, also stops your opponent from Tribute Summoning anything other than a Zombie-Type monster. This negatively affects many commonly used Decks, such as Disaster Dragon, Monarchs and Plants. Many cards are designed specifically to work with the Field Spell, such as "Doomkaiser Dragon" or "Trap of the Imperial Tomb" or even "Sacred Crane" or "Molten Zombie" for draw power. These cards have very good effects, but are sometimes better to avoid, as they are useless without the Field Spell. Other cards have indirect merit, such as "Getsu Fuhma", "Marionette Mite", or even "Tutan Mask" when used on your opponents to stop pesky Spells or Traps.
With this technique, you can recycle your Deck, and use "Soul Absorption" to gain Life Points quickly. However, you might Deck out quickly because of the speed you can banish from the top of your Deck with the draw power you get with "Shutendoji", but you can still recycle your Deck with the effect of "Necroface". By doing this, you can greatly harass your opponent.
This Deck works by using the Equip Spell "Supervise" on "Il Blud" to Special Summon Zombies from your hand or Graveyard and use them for Synchro Summoning. It works like a Gigavise Deck but is admittedly slower. However, with a bit of ingenuity and skill it can work pretty well and it is possible to Synchro Summon almost as quickly. The main focus is to summon "Il Blud" and then use "Supervise" to have it gain its effect.
As the name suggests, this is a beatdown and milling Deck using Zombies. This technique starts by drawing "Allure of Darkness" and banishing "Necroface", then banishing 5 cards from your opponent's Deck and disrupting their strategies. Unlike the "Zombie D.D." Deck's strategies, however, this does not focus on using the first effect of "Necroface" to make it a beatstick. It uses its second effect to mill, so instead of Summoning "Necroface", you drop it using the effect of "Zombie Master" and Summon "Shutendoji", then repeat until you are satisfied. After milling as much as you can, let "Shutendoji" use its effect to retrieve a banished "Il Blud" and or other high-ATK Zombies, because they were likely milled by "Necroface". You can also send out "Pyramid Turtle" to get onto the field any strong Zombies still left in your Deck or use "Return from the Different Dimension" to finish the job.
When you are finished with the milling strategy it is very important that you get as many Zombies as you can onto the field, but it is also good (but not always recommended) to stack up your Deck with 60 cards, so that if all else fails, you can Normal Summon "Necroface" and use its second effect for the kill.
Or, you may use the ever-popular milling effect of "Soul-Absorbing Bone Tower". there are a number of ways to do this... but you'll need to have 3 copies of "Soul-Absorbing Bone Tower" and possibly 3 of copies "Inferno Reckless Summon". Keep in mind, the opponent's monster must be face-up for "Inferno Reckless Summon" to activate. All you need is to Special Summon one, and after that, you may activate "Inferno Reckless Summon". Your opponent will mill 2 cards from the top of his/her Deck. Even with "Zombie World" on the field, a simultaneous Summon of the three or four monsters (depending on if your opponent has any more monsters of the same name) will only count as one time. However, any other Special Summon after that, will result in your opponent milling 6 cards off the top of their Deck for each time a monster is Special Summoned. "Il Blud" will also be the main priority card of this Deck. If you can either Summon "Il Blud" or "Colossal Fighter" on the field, especially with "Colossal Fighter" on the field, victory is assured. The effect of "Colossal Fighter" may be used on itself, but not if "Zombie World" is presently on the field since it will no longer be a Warrior. Only a "DNA Surgery" will help you to accomplish a complete Deck out in one turn if you have enough Life Points.
This Deck is used to gather all 5 pieces of "Exodia" into your hand using cards to draw more cards, including "Card of Safe Return" (Traditional only), since Zombies focus around swarming from the Graveyard, and "Shutendoji" to add even more draw power. This Deck also enjoys the stall power of "Spirit Reaper".
With the new cards "Blue-Blooded Oni" and "Red-Headed Oni", Zombies now have the option to swarm the field with Xyz Monsters. Since both (and most of the best Zombie-Type monsters) are Level 4, is best to use Rank 4 Xyz monsters (like "Gem-Knight Pearl", that works very well with the effects of the "Onis"), but "Pain Painter" can also be used to summon Rank 2 Xyz monsters.
This Zombie Burn Deck mainly focuses on Summoning "Endless Decay" which can be easily sent to the Graveyard by "Foolish Burial" or "Lavalval Chain" and then be Special Summoned from Graveyard by "Book of Life", "Il Blud" or even a "Mezuki" in the Graveyard. Another good method to Special Summon it directly is by using the core of this Deck,"Pyramid Turtle" to get destroyed by battle and Special Summon it from the Deck. Since "Decay" has high ATK, usually your opponent will focus on getting rid of it by card effects so be sure of having at least 2 "Pyramid of Wonders" in this Deck so it protect "Endless Decay" from cards such as "Mirror Force" or "Dark Hole", and "Solemn Warning" for protection from monster effects. Another good addition to this Deck is "Imperial Iron Wall" to protect "Decay" from being banished.
