The Dark Prophecy

I love this deck. It is probably the most fun I've had sincd the Dark Magician lockdown.

You see the deck requires a little bit of set up but with Spellbook of secrets and Spellbook of the masters spamming the grave allowing for the summoning of the decks ace Reaper of Prophecy. The best part however is using Endyminion to get the destruction eff with out the need of High Priestess. Not to mention if you mill Prophecy destroyer you can otk very easily.

I think it would be better if you ran Foolish Burial instead of Lyla. Uncontrollable milling in this deck kinda sucks.

Fact is the milling is necessary not to mention with star hall she is a nice beater with back row hate.

Eternity I think is sort of useless to be honest.

The only cards in Prophecy that banish are High priestess, fate and Destroyer.

And as I said above Destroyer is only when he's milled do I use his eff.

Otherwise he sits where he belongs and does nothing.

Though this deck is wicked fast once it starts up.

Well, I think the milling is useless because you're gonna have at least 5 Spellbooks in grave to set up for Reaper. Destroyer also sucks; having a card sit in-hand useless is bad. Which is why I suggested Foolish over Lyla because he's the only one that really needs to be milled.

thats true but Lyla's mill can be countered by Tower + the speed she adds to the deck is incredible.
With one good mill you can get secrets in the grave for master's abuse and have the condition to overly abuse Reaper the next turn.

Yes, but it's better to get the Spellbooks in the grave by actually using them. And you're picturing a perfect situation where you mill the right cards. There's a lot more times, especially with this deck, where you're going to get a bad mill.

Eternity is good. If you aren't going to take out Lyla, put in Eternity. In the situation where you mill both your Towers (which is kinda pointless in this deck considering you need the Spellbooks in the grave) you can banish a Tower with Fate/Destroyer and get it back with Eternity.

No room for it.

Also tower is there for the case i do get a bad mill since it can always be searched by secrets.

Also I'll look into adding eternity today.

I think you should drop 1 starhall and 1 fate for 2 priestess, just because priestess is still an amazing card. I know the build is based around reaper, but priestess is just too good not to use.

Also, why no temperance? How do you get out reaper..? tributing for it ?

Reaped is summoned by the fool and life.

Also temperance hurts this deck since she can only summon one monster no other monsters would be summoned due to her effect.

Also priestess doesn't fit and Endyminion is an excellent replacement allowing for reaper and destroyer abuse with the same destruction effect.
