Melodious Deck Information

Melodious Basic Information

Rating Core Card
One Kill
1st Movement Solo


  • For the most part, you do not need to run copies of Polymerization to conduct a Fusion Summon with this Deck.
  • The boss Fusion Monster is indestructible in battle and card effects, making it a hard card to remove from the field.
  • This Deck seems to be tailored against Special Summon-heavy Decks, which has become the norm in high-tier Duels.

Deck Concept

An archetype that focuses on Fusion Summons to specifically counter all Special Summon monsters, Melodious can easily transition from control to beatdown when it manages to swarm the field with Monsters. Players should look out for this Deck's ace monster, which happens to be one of the newest cards added to the game with the introduction of the ARC-V World.

Melodious Deck Build


Skill is currently unavailable.
Character Skill

Send 1 face-up monster you control whose original name includes "Melodious" to your Graveyard. Then, play 1 "Melodious Maestra" monster from your Deck/Graveyard to your field whose original Level is higher than that of the monster sent to the Graveyard. This Skill can only be used if you begin the Duel with a Deck/Extra Deck that contains no monsters other than "Melodious" monsters. Can be used once per Duel.

Main Deck

Card Alternatives

Main Deck Monsters

  • For the most part, the various Melodious Diva monsters can act as Fusion Material for your boss monsters since their usual requirement needs one "Melodious Diva" as part of the materials.
  • While unorthodox for Fusion Support, Crystal Rose can provide as a substitute for its ability to take on the name of any "Melodious" monster in the Deck or hand.

Spell Cards

  • Even with the monsters in this archetype being able to Fusion Summon by themselves, if you feel like running a copy or two of Polymerization then go for it.
  • Forbidden Lance and Forbidden Chalice are still great options for last-minute battle assists, which is perfect for this Deck.
  • One quick way to stay safe from back row effects is having a copy or two of Mystical Space Typhoon to make the arrival of your Fusion Monsters safe.

Trap Cards

  • Being even more annoying to your opponent and their Special Summoned monsters, Treacherous Trap Hole can make them think twice from swarming the field as they please.
  • While you have to banish materials and you cannot launch an attack the turn you activate this card, Necro Fusion is a surprise pick to bring out the needed Fusion Monster as a trap.

How to Play Melodious

Basic Combo

Bloom Diva the Melodious Choir.png

1. Activate "1st Movement Solo" and search out either "Soprano the Melodious Songstress" or "Sonata the Melodious Diva" to Special Summon to the field. For consistency's sake, choose Soprano.
2. Activate Zuzu's Skill From Songstress to Maestra to tribute the Special Summoned Melodious Diva, and Special Summon Shopina the Melodious Maestra.
3. Activate Shopina's effect to bring back your tributed Melodious monster from the Graveyard to the hand.
4. Normal Summon the Soprano you got back from the Graveyard.
5. Activate Soprano's effect to conduct a Fusion Summon using the two monsters on the field as Fusion Material.
6. Fusion Summon Bloom Diva, the Melodious Choir.

Counters for Melodious


  • Even though this Deck is perfect against Special Summoned monsters, this Deck is inherently focused on Special Summons itself.
  • As of the moment, the Melodious archetype relies on a single character's skill to be thought of as competitive.
  • This Deck is not beginner-friendly; you need to have a solid understanding of the game, especially with this archetype because of how hard it is to Summon the Fusion Monster.

Prevent the Special Summon

Ironic as it is, this archetype that counters Special Summons happens to be its own weakness; negating the Fusion Summon process or the effects of the Main Deck monsters will come a long way. Do not let this Deck get a chance to bring out Bloom Diva, otherwise any Special Summoned monster will fall against it.

Use Non-destruction Effects

As the Deck's boss monster is immune to card destruction effects, you have to be prepared to remove cards from the field with different ways. Being shuffled back to the Deck, a forced return to the hand (or Extra Deck for Fusion Monsters' cases) or Banishment from the field all work against Bloom Diva.
