Yu-Gi-Oh/a good deck build around temptest magician


QUESTION: Hey i recently got the card tempest magician and rescue rabbit and was wondering what a good build around those cards would be. Thanks for for listening to my question and for hopefully answering it.

ANSWER: These 2 cards don't tend to feature in the same deck at the moment, largely because there are no Rank 3/4 Xyz monsters that require Spellcaster-type materials.

I can build you a deck round either one of them, but putting them together just makes them both worse.

Let me know via follow-up.

QUESTION: hey thanks for your answer, and would you mind building a separate deck revolving around tempest magician?

I'm assuming you don't want the standard Tempest FTK deck here, since that's rather boring to play...

So a Spellcaster build then, featuring Magical Citadel of Endymion to increase counters...
Let's go with something like this:

1 Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning
1 Chaos Sorcerer
3 Apprentice Magician
3 Defender the Magical Knight
2 Breaker the Magical Warrior
2 Magical Exemplar
2 Effect Veiler
1 Old Vindictive Magician
2 Night's End Sorcerer
1 Crystal Seer

2 Magical Citadel of Endymion
2 Spell Power Grasp
3 Mystical Space Typhoon
2 Instant Fusion
1 Heavy Storm
1 Monster Reborn
1 Dark Hole
1 Mind Control
1 Book of Moon
1 Terraforming

2 Bottomless Trap Hole
2 Solemn Warning
2 Torrential Tribute
1 Solemn Judgment

With an Extra Deck like this:

2 Arcanite Magician
2 Tempest Magician
1 Scrap Dragon
1 Stardust Dragon
1 Black Rose Dragon
1 Gaia Knight - the Force of Earth
1 Ally of Justice Catastor
1 T.G. Hyper Librarian
1 Armory Arm
1 Maestroke the Symphony Djinn
1 Number 50 - Blackship of Corn
1 Gagaga Cowboy
1 Gachi Gachi Gantetsu

Give that a go.

I'm able to answer any and all questions related to the English Yu-Gi-Oh! game itself. This includes, but isn't limited to:

Deck Fixes: Either making suggestions and improvements on a deck you've already built, or building a deck from scratch for you. In either case, please give an idea of the kind of deck you're building, the level of play you're planning to use it in (small tournaments, regionals etc), and the kind of budget you're on.
Please format decks in a way that's easy to read. Each card name should be on its own line, with a number before it indicating how many you're playing. Please split decks into Monsters, Spells and Traps.

NOTE: A level of reasonability is assumed with this. I cannot build you a nationals winning deck based on monsters whose name starts with the Letter 'A' on a budget of 4($6)... Nor will I generally respond well to Questions touting "No Xyz, Synchro... etc" or disallowing cards from certain parts of the show. I haven't seen the show in a number of years and find these conditions to usually be poorly-defined.

Rulings: On any card interacting with any other card(s). Tell me the scenario, and I'll tell you what happens.

I won't be answering questions on whether a trade is fair or not, or on how much X-card is worth, as both these kinds of question can be answered by using Ebay's completed listings page.
