Secrets of Eternity
Gren Maju Da Eiza" works in most Decks that banishes cards.
Legendary Maju Garzett", " Great Maju Garzett" and " Maju Garzett" need easily-Summoned high ATK monsters so they can be used at their full potential. DARK monsters with 0 DEF are the most useful, since they can be recycled using " Recurring Nightmare", which can also return the "Majus" to the hand. " Goblins" and " Giant Orc" suggest " Skill Drain", but it completely cripples the "Majus", so an alternative is " Final Attack Orders", which has the bonus of ensuring Battle Damage against face-down Defense Position monsters. " Forbidden Chalice" won't affect all your monsters like " Skill Drain", can negate the negative effect of your low Level monsters, or give them the extra ATK they might need. " Dark Ruler Ha Des" aids other Fiends by negating the effects of monsters they destroy. Too many high-Level monsters can be dead draws, a problem than can be solved with cards like " The Monarchs Stormforth". " Grave Squirmer", may be useless for the "Majus", but can destroy troublesome cards or be Tributed for another monster, and is an extra target for " Recurring Nightmare"; however, avoid using it with an active " Final Attack Orders". " Battle Mania" forces your opponent to attack an overpowered "Great Maju Garzett", and " Megamorph" can help OTK the opponent. " Vanity's Fiend" ensures your opponent is in the same situation as you. " Dark Necrofear", although collides with the last two, is a staple in Decks with lots of Fiends, and can be Tributed right away to bring a 4400 ATK "Great Maju Garzett". " Ojama Trio" works with " Battle Mania" and/or "Final Attack Orders". Counter Traps or Virus cards can either protect your monsters or give them another use if they are about to be destroyed anyway.
