I'm trying to build a strong deck based around Deep Sea Diva's effect in order to easily summon Red Dragon Archfiend and eventually Red Nova Dragon.
Here is the deck list atm.

Monsters: 20
Deep Sea Diva x3
Mermaid Archer x2
Atlantean Dragoons x3
Atlantean Attack Squad x3
Atlantean Heavy Infantry x3
Reese the Ice Mistress x2
Spined Gillman x2
Penguin Soldier x2


Spell: 13
Call of the Atlanteans x2
Surface x2
Salvage x2
Dark Hole
Monster Reborn
Mystical Space Typhoon
Heavy Storm
Smashing Ground
Nobleman of Extermination
Lightning Vortex

Traps: 9
Bottomless Trap Hole x2
Draining Shield
Call of the Haunted
Torrential Tribute
Bubble Bringer x2
Mirror Force
Threatening Roar

Total: 42 cards

Extra: 5
Red Dragon Archfiend x3
Red Nova Dragon x2

The main advantage of this deck is that Surface, Salvage and Bubble Bringer allow me to recycle many of my cards to synchro multiple copies of both Red Dragon Archfiend and Red Nova. I included a lot of defensive trap cards to allow me to stall until I get the right cards and worst comes to worst, this deck can function around the effect of Atlantean Dragoons which allows lv3 or lower Sea Serpent monsters to attack directly.

Stuff like these should be run at more than 1 copy to be honest. On that note, Deck looks like it could use some better options in the Spell/Trap department. Stuff like 2x Solemn Warning, a Solemn Judgment, 2-3x Mystical Space Typhoon, 1x Mind Control, 1x Book of Moon, maybe 1-2 Bottomless Trap Hole and/or Compulsory Evacuation Device seem like they would help your Deck more.

thanks for the reply
I'm working under a tight budget atm so the best I can do is add a Book of Moon, replace Nobleman with another MST.

Spell: 14
Call of the Atlanteans x2
Surface x2
Salvage x2
Dark Hole
Monster Reborn
Mystical Space Typhoonx2
Heavy Storm
Smashing Ground
Lightning Vortex
Book of Moon

Traps: 9
Bottomless Trap Hole x2
Draining Shield
Call of the Haunted
Torrential Tribute
Bubble Bringer x2
Mirror Force
Threatening Roar

Total: 43

On another note, do you think this deck is local worthy? It would be nice to win a local or two so I can buy some better cards.

I question 2x Mermaid Archer and 2x Spined Gillman xsharkninja but aside from that you have a cool idea going for you so I think it is local ready. Be aware though, in tournaments your SIDE Deck is going to probably be your most important asset.

Keep Nobleman of Crossout in your Side. Card does wonders against people who like to Set monsters game 2 such as Sangan, Snowman Eater, Ryko, etc...

seems to me like this is Atlanteans trying to summon Red Nova. Try using Dragon Ice, it's a higher leveled monster whom you are very likely to summon and activates the efefct of your Atlantean monsters as well.

At the moment I have cards like Sangan and Snowman Eater on the side and I've also sided copies of A Legendary Ocean and Gravity Bind in case I want to run this deck more closely to how the Structure deck I've based it on is run. I can catch people by surprise by switching up my strategy between games.

Do you have access to Dust Tornado? That could definitely bolster your Side Deck a bit. Also, do you have 15 cards to side in to? Not quite sure how Sangan will help but I don't see it hurting you either xsharkninja

I actually have 2. I'm looking through my spares to see if I have anything useful to side just in case.

That's where I first tested this idea albeit with better spell/trap cards. I found it very easy to summon Red Nova to the point where I've had 2 copies of Red Nova and a Red Dragon Archfiend on the field at the same time. Surface, Salvage and Call of the Atlanteans are amazing at letting me re-use cards for synchro summons.
