- Spells Only Decks (Coins, CPs and Free DPs Only) -

The Spells Only Rule
     - All your Monsters are destroyed when played.
     - Your aim is to beat your opponent's deck using the special rule as an advantage!
     - Even if it says "Spells Only", you will still need some monster cards to increase your Life
Points!. Requiem, Shared Fate and Parting Gift are some of the good effects that you might want to find from Monster cards because they activate when destroyed.

     - Direct Damage or Burn cards are obviously a good choice too, but we need to balance
the deck. Too much burn cards will leave you open from monster attacks!, and too much monster cards will not lead you to victory!

Main Monster Cards ( Choose 9 or 10 Cards)

Archfiend Mirror (5400 Coins)
     - Fiend/Dark - 300 Power / 800 Life Points

     - Spellcaster/Earth - 500 Power / 100 Life Points

       If you still don't have Dragon Zombies, choose any Monster cards with "Requiem" effect.
     - Do not pick a card that will damage your own Life Points!
     - Pick a card that will give you decent Life Points and good amount of Requiem damage.

- Spells Only Deck Strategies -

Sample Spells Only Deck (4200 Life Points)
     - Here's a sample deck that I used for completing the "Spells Only" challenge rule.
       To make this work, you must first clear your opponent's monster cards. Mirror Force and
Dragon Zombies will do the trick (hope to draw them asap). If successful, your opponent will become a sitting duck, open to fires!
     - If you only have 1 Mirror Force, place 1 Just Desserts or any spell that you want.

     - They will also attempt to restore some of their Life Points by using some Healing spells, but
your direct damage or burn cards would be enough to incinerate them! (7500 Total Damage)
     - To ensure your victory, add 1 Destroy Spell to counter their Call of Darkness card.
