In an era of heavy Link Summons and careful board placement, Pendulum Monsters have fallen into obscurity in favor of more resilient decks. But that might change, with the introduction of Odd-Eyes Revolution Dragon! Released in Rise of the Duelist, Odd-Eyes Revolution Dragon is one of the set's less sought after Secret Rares as everyone chases down Dogmatika Maximus and Forbidden Droplet, but Odd-Eyes Revolution Dragon actually brings a lot of support to the Odd-Eyes theme despite its 'budget' rating.

If you're looking for an inexpensive way to prove that Pendulums are still relevant in your local community, check out Yacine's video on the deck!

One of Yacine's hallmarks is a big focus on resiliency, and his Odd-Eyes build is no exception. No matter what you're up against, Yacine's thought up a counter and shows you what cards you need to side for Games 2 and 3. Even with a few cards that have no reprints, this deck's still relatively cheap, making it an excellent choice if you're looking to learn pendulums or shake up your local meta.

Be sure to check out the deck list below, and for an in-depth combo guide, watch Yacine's follow-up video: Odd-Eyes Combos ft. Revolution Dragon!
