**Note: Since the website won't let me, please be aware that the deck will have 3 Pot of Duality's instead of 2, and 1 Terraforming instead of 2.

With the new banlist, the deck's backrow and sidedeck gets hit pretty hard as certain cards that we used to run at pairs are now reduced to 1. Thus, new adjustments must be made:

In this new version, we revert back to the Geartown Engine. Keep in mind that this is simply 1 variation of the deck and is by no means superior to other variations of Malefic Skill Drain.

With Royal Tribute and Thunder King Rai-Oh getting reduced to 1, we pretty much kick them to the curb and replace them with 1 more Pot of Duality and Doomcaliber Knight - both good replacements. With 2 new lvl 4 DARK monsters into the mix, we add the new Number 66: Master Key Beetle into the extra deck.

As the banlist is still relatively new, feedback is appreciated!
