Everyone's talking about Dark Magician in the wake of Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon, but it isn't the only classic deck that can benefit from the new Fusion Monster! In today's video, Sam shows you how to build around the other half of the Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon legacy: Red-Eyes Black Dragon.

This deck packs enough power to match the Dark Magician strategy, but it's vastly superior on the Brooklyn Rage scale because you get to play all the Red-Eyes cards! Beyond the typical Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon play, it's also got plenty of combos that Dark Magician players only see in their dreams! If you're ready to play Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon and look cool doing it, check out the video.

The best thing about playing this deck is not having to find three Magicians' Souls. In fact, lots of these cards became more affordable with the latest releases, and you can start the deck with a few 2020 Mega-Tins and Legendary Duelist Season 1 boxes! Or if you want to skip the packs altogether, check out the decklist below.
