Mono-Darkness rush
黒単 (Kurotan)
DM-Wiki: Article

Mono-Darkness rush is a Monocolored Rush deck type.


It consists of low-cost creatures in the Darkness Civilization.

Darkness isn't usually a suiting civilization for rush mostly because its low-cost creatures lean towards being based on Card Discard as well as creatures that destroy themselves, but with the addition of evolution creatures with the Graveyard evolution keyword new rush decks had begun to rise.

Graveyard evolution—Choose a darkness creature in your graveyard and put this card into the battle zone on top of that creature.

It was mostly used for Zamaru's powerful discard effect, but since Dragon Saga, cheap Mana Arms creatures have also been adapted into the decktype.
