Question
Hello,

I know my request is a bit weird but I'm looking for a Yugi-like deck to play Slifer. I have to play Dark Magician and Slifer and I thought about making a spellcaster/dragon deck to also play Dark Paladin but I don't know if it can be competitive enough. Anyway If you have any idea (not necessarily using Dark Paladin but at least the other two) it would be of great help.

Thanks in advance for your answer!

Answer
I'm rather confused...
You want to play Dark Magician and Slifer, but you're worried about being competitive?
There is no variant of Dark Magician/Slifer.dek that can compete in this meta. I'd like to put that out there now - anything that I build here cannot compete with Dragons or Prophecy, and probably isn't going to beat Mermail, Constellar or Evilswarm either.

That said, the easiest way you're going to get to Slifer is Via 2 Dark Magician -> Dracossack -> tokens, then Tribute everything for Slifer.
That's quite unlikely to happen, and will never be the best play in that situation, so we'll only be playing a single Slifer.

I'd go with something like this:

1 Slifer the Sky Dragon
1 Gorz the Emissary of Darkness
3 Dark Magician
3 Skilled Dark Magician
2 Magical Exemplar
2 Apprentice Magician
1 Old Vindictive Magician
1 Crystal Seer
1 Toon Gemini Elf
2 Effect Veiler
1 Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer
(18)

2 Dark Magic Curtain
2 Sacred Sword of Seven Stars
1 Allure of Darkness
1 Heavy Storm
1 Monster Reborn
1 Dark Hole
1 Book of Moon
3 Toon Table of Contents
3 Upstart Goblin
(15)

2 Bottomless Trap Hole
3 Compulsory Evacuation Device
1 Solemn Warning
1 Solemn Judgment
(7)

Give that a go, see what you think.

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.
