As a pretty big fan of Dark Souls, I tried to base their Effects off of their attacks and behaviors in the video game. Hopefully those of you who are familiar with the game can see the connections. 😃

The cards themselves are mostly Warrior and Spellcaster type monsters with many relating to the card “Humanity”. Humanity is a nifty quick play spell card that can increase a monster’s Level by 1 and grants Life Points equal to the monster’s level. This allows you perform specific Xyz and Syncho summons much easier and at the same time can disrupt (or help) your opponent’s Xyz and Syncho summons. The deck is designed to recycle Humanity as much as possible through either the field spell or Boss drops. (Xyz and Syncho monsters) Some cards also rely on you having at least 1 humanity in your hand or graveyard.

There is also an emphasis on life point management, The field spell in particular can halve all battle damage after 2 monsters are destroyed in battle, making duels a bit more interesting. Many of these cards have fairly unique effects that were quite tricky to make such as, doubling battle damage of your next attack, halving your opponent’s life points after a certain amount of damage being inflicted, and monster cards with 2 different types! :0

Almost all card art done by me.

Notes for certain mechanics

~Dual type monsters are treated as both types anywhere in the deck, field, grave, etc. This allows them to take advantage of support cards of both of their types.
~When boss cards are sent to the graveyard you can still add humanity cards to your hand from the graveyard even while necrovalley is on the field. (This is because their effects activate in the graveyard.)
~Your opponent can attack you directly while you only have Moonlight Butterfly on the field while having overlay units. (More similar to Legendary Fisherman’s effect rather than Earthbound Immortals)
~If monsters are special summoned at the same time, Pursuers will banish all of them and inflict damage equal to all of their lvls combined x 200. (good against rabbit, return from a different dimension etc.)

Leave any critiques, suggestions, and bug reports here.
Enjoy.

That's the most awesome part, and you put in a lot of work. I think I'll try it out with my friend once I complete my own custom deck. [:thumbu:]

Oops, looks like I forgot to move that one to my custom card database.
New database 
You should already have the Scripts and pictures.

ArtWork is really good.But the effects are exaggerated in my oppinion.
Cards are OverPowered (syn and xyz at most).

Anyways, great work.

I'm so in love with this deck. I've been using it in private duels with my friends and even when I'm losing I'm having so much fun with them. I can only help but to request some other cards like a possibility could be Ornstein and Smough as a card combo. Maybe:

Dark Executioner, Smough DARK
* * * * *
Spellcaster/Warrior/Effect

If you control a face-up "Ornstein the Dragonslayer" you can special summon this card from your hand. Once per turn, when this face-up card you control is targeted for an attack you can target one face-up card who's original printed name is "Ornstein the Dragonslayer" and equip this card to the target. If the card is equipped to a monster, the equipped monster gains attack and defense equal to this card. When the equipped monster would be destroyed you can special summon this card. The effect of "Dark Executioner, Smough" can only activated once per duel.

ATK/1650 DEF/1400


Ornstein the Dragonslayer LIGHT
* * * * * * *
Warrior/Thunder/Effect

This card cannot be Special Summoned from the Deck or Graveyard. If you control a face-up "Dark Executioner, Smough" you can special summon this card from your hand. Once per turn, you can activate one of the following effects:-Discard one card, destroy one face-up monster your opponent controls -Discard one card, destroy one face-down Spell or Trap your opponent controls. When this card battles a Defense Position monster, inflict Piercing Battle Damage to your opponent. When this card is destroyed by battle you can equip it to one face-up "Dark Executioner, Smough" you control. the equipped monster gains 1500 attack and 600 defense.

ATK/2000 DEF/1200

Glad you are enjoying the deck. I have quite a few cards that didn't quite make it out of the concept stage, including O&S. However I'm still playing around with card effects and looking for more cards to add in.

Some cards I am planning to add in at some point.
Dragonslayer Orstein
Executioner Smough
Hawkeye Gough
Peculiar Doll
Crystal Ring Shield
Moonlight Greatsword
Parry and Riposte

Maybe
Gwyn - Lord of Cinder
Anor Londo Snipers
Giantdad

I'd love to help you out with making effects and the like if you'd like. I'm doing another play through of the game myself now so the ideas would be fresh off my mind and handed to you for refining x) I'm also an avid yugioh player and frequently play on YGOPro with a friend of mine

I can't seem to get the White Sign Soapstone card to activate. Any idea what could be wrong?

I never really had any problems with White Sign Soapstone.
The only thing that I think could mess with it are:
1) You don't have a Humanity in your Graveyard.
2) You don't have a normal warrior or spellcaster monster in your deck or graveyard.
3) Necrovalley?
4) Something is preventing Special Summons.

If you have Outlaw's card manager you can just import them from this zip file.
http://www.mediafire.com/download/80dcb1a0la477e1/SGJin%27s_Custom_Cards_%28CP%231_%26_Dark_Souls_SD%29.zip 

The primary key error usually means that there is a problem copying the new info into the database.

Cards 000-003 are the cards from my first card pack. (They are included in the download)
Card 006 is Seath the Scaleless.
I have not had the time to work on custom cards lately, but any new cards that I make will be 042 and up.
