1 Number 61: Volcasaurus

This deck is a lot of fun to play, mostly because the Pendulum mechanic itself is absolutely absurd.
Blackwing - Gofu the Vague Shadow provides this deck with a lot of neat plays, particularly the ability to summon Ultimaya Tzolkin and Volcasaurus, but mostly it provides really decent fodder for the Metalfoe search effects.

Raremetalfoes Bismagia is pretty cool in that it gives a good reason to use Emergency Teleport - opening Teleport and a scale really sets up the entire deck very quickly.

The redundancy of having 13 Pendulum cards that all do exactly the same thing plus 4 RotA's to get to them makes Pot of Desires even better here than it usually is - even though there are a fair number of 1-of combo pieces in the deck, they're all so easily searchable on turn 1 that Pot of Desires backfiring is rarely a concern.

At first I didn't like Fullmetalfoes Fusion and considered cutting it for a second copy of Metalfoes Fusion, but it really carries a lot of if not all of this deck's OTK potential, being able to fuse in the battle phase to finish off the last few lifepoints after a big Pendulum summon.
In theory fusion summoning Alkahest on the opponent's turn can be absolutely game-breaking too, but haven't had it come up yet.

Kirin (and subsequently Bunbuku) is of course very good and feels almost obligatory, but I honestly believe it's not the centerpiece of the deck like it is for some other Pendulum builds and they could easily be cut for Effect Veilers or Ghost Ogre and Snow Rabbit (which of course has great synergy with Emergency Teleport as well).

Nothing about the deck but to make youtube links work you want to delete "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=" from the link.

Considered brilliant fusion + lazuli?

Is 2 metalfoes counter really needed?

Twin twisters seems like it doesnt have much synergy in this.

Is this deck for tcg or ocg?

Brilliant was in an early version of the deck but there ultimately weren't enough LIGHT 'mons with reasonable synergy (just Archfiend Eccentrick wasn't really enough imo)

2 Counters comes up pretty often, unlike Fusion it's difficult to recycle

I probably wouldn't run any pendulum deck without Twin Twisters tbh, too many decks are main-decking Anti-Spell Fragrance

This is on YGOPro, ie combined cardpool with TCG list - Bismagia, Alakhest, and Mythriel are coming to the TCG in November

I think cosmic cyclone is a better main deck in pendulum than twin twisters.

Master pend is a light monster with synergy in the deck.
