ABPF-JP0?? Gravekeeper's Descendant [Rare]
DARK/Spellcaster - Effect/4/1500/1200
Activate by Releasing 1 other face-up "Gravekeeper's" monster. Destroy 1 card your opponent controls.

Can be good if you need to get rid of a specific card. It also gets huge with Necrovalley, and has good synergy with Aggro Gravekeeper's ability to swarm.

ABPF-JP0?? Gravekeeper's Lithograph
Spell Card
Select 2 "Gravekeeper's" monsters in your Graveyard and add them to your hand. This effect is not negated by the effect of "Necrovalley".

Salvage for Gravekeepers. I like the idea of using that with Spy. It also has good synergy with GK Descendent and High Priest.







These cards are quite good, and along with High Priest, it makes me want to dust off my old Gravekeeper Aggro deck in a way.

i must say even though i have never been big on gravekeepers these cards are definately good for it. the onl problem is that absolute powerforce is months away for us. and other than these the set is not that good. but we only know a little over half of it so it can still turn itself around.

Monsters:18
3 Gravekeeper's Assailant
3 Gravekeeper's Spy
3 Gravekeeper's Commandant
1 Gravekeeper's Guard
1 Gravekeeper's Spear Soldier
2 Mystic Tomato
2 Caius The Shadow Monarch
1 Spirit Reaper
1 Snipe Hunter
1 Sangan

Spells:12
3 Necrovalley
3 Book of Moon
1 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Brain Control
2 Royal Tribute
2 Allure of Darkness

Traps:10
2 Bottomless Trap Hole
3 Rite of Spirit
2 Royal Oppression/Dark Bribe
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Solemn Judgment
1 Mirror Force

Deck:40

This is a standard GK build, which I have complete except I do not have Dark Bribes which can be good too/a second Allure/Royal Tribute. It is a Beatdown, but other builds become possible from the support such as Royal Tribute Control which has great synergy with Lithograph.

Gravekeeper's really need their own Solemn Judgment. =/

I will post another deck later utilizing the support. Also, do you have Royal Tribute Begley? I want those to mess around with, especially when GK gets some new cards.

Since Snipe Hunter is bad ygo's, I will probably drop it for another Guard. Guard is pro.

Snipe Hunter always cost me games no matter what I played it in. I just threw it in as a filler Tomato target.

I tested this deck, and Royal Tribute is literally god this format. It rapes Sworns, BW, and Monarchs. I can't wait until I get Lithograph, the synergy is crazy.

unfortunately in this format we are all siding Goldd's against x-sabers so we are well ready for royal tribute.

Yup yup. =P

I really want to test my Monarch deck more, and maybe try a Spinning Hand Control variant.

1 Trap Dustshoot, 2 Mind Crush, 2 Phoenix Wind Wind Blast, 2 Thestalos The Firestorm Monarch, 2 Legendary Jujitsu Master, 2 Gravekeeper's Guard, and 3 Raiza The Storm Monarch, seems very disruptive. Mind Crush is good against Lightsworn and Blackwings, and you will know their stuff from half the cards that I listed. Cool idea?

Yeah, standard is probably best.

Anyways im pumped for the weekend, I can't wait to play to be honest lol.

I want to keep playing in tournements, having fun/hanging out, and winning new cards to increase my card pool. Simply playing in tournements will get me stuff to trade for stuff I need, so I think thats my best option at this point.

Hey Begley and Eric. I tested the Gravekeeper deck, and made changes. This is the final build for now from extensive testing against the tier ones in text duels on AIM.

The deck is really good from testing, and I really like it. I really need 4 cards for it though. Do you have any spares of these?

Cards I need:4
3 Dark Bribe
1 Allure of Darkness

Dark Bribe was reprinted as a common.

This deck is extremely trap heavy. Just off that you will be dominated in the early game because you are forced into a reactive role by the deck itself. I would be careful choosing this deck. Can you get some more spells and drop a couple traps?

With GK, you are forced to be Trap heavy, since you need to protect Necrovalley with your life or you would lose. I guess I could drop Bottomless Trap Hole for a pair of Lightning Vortex or something. =]

Here is a build that doesn't nearly depend on Necrovalley as much, and your GKs can actually run over Synchros, and DAD. Royal Tribute is a broken card when you have only 15 monsters, and you just thin them out from the deck.

Monsters:15
3 Gravekeeper's Assailant
3 Gravekeeper's Spy
3 Gravekeeper's Commandant
1 Gravekeeper's Guard
1 Gravekeeper's Spear Soldier
1 Breaker The Magical Warrior
3 Kycoo The Ghost Destroyer

Spells:16
3 Necrovalley
1 Mystical Space Typhoon
1 Brain Control
3 Book of Moon
3 Royal Tribute
3 Soliditary
2 Allure of Darkness

Traps:9
1 Mirror Force
1 Magician's Circle
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Solemn Judgment
3 Rite of Spirit
2 Bottomless Trap Hole

Deck:40

I like this build the best to be honest. Do you have Soliditary/Magician's Circle Begley?

Ok, sounds cool. I also want to fit in 3 Dark Bribe in my Monarch deck. Icarus Attack really hurts Necrovalley and Royal Oppression, and I want to stop that and others. 1 Solemn Judgment just isn't enough alot of the time.

I call my Monarch deck Death Circle now btw.
