Baccano! (Title needs to be within 10 and 255 characters, so it seems that putting just plain "Baccano!" without the quotation marks around said title just won't fit, so I plan on trying to make the title fit just right in its spacial boundries.)

Twitchy got my mind running on a Gem-Knight Deck, so I decided to poke around and see what I could come up with. I myself see a lot of potential in a deck like this, and see it overlooked by the meta. Meta Swarms are simply just "Six Sams until they scoop." or wind up being Britts "Nombies from HELL!!". I would actually like to make this my Main Deck if possible.

Invasion of the Pretty Shiny
40 cards

25 Monsters:
3x Gem-Knight Garnet
3x Gem-Knight Tourmaline
2x Effect Veiler
3x Gem-Armadillo
2x Gem-Knight Amber
3x Gem-Knight Lazuli
3x Gem-Knight Obsidian
2x Gem-Turtle
2x Rescue Rabbit
3x Volcanic Shell

7 Spells:
3x Gem-Knight Fusion
2x MST
1x Future Fusion
1x Monster Reborn

6 Traps:
2x Dark Bribe
2x Solemn Warning
2x Torrential Tribute

15 Extra Deck:
3x Gem-Knight Citrine
2x Gem-Knight Master Dia
1x Gem-Knight Prismaura
1x Gem-Knight Ruby
3x Gem-Knight Zirconia
2x Daigusto Emeral
2x Number 11: Big Eye

11 Side Deck:
2x Gem-Knight Alexandrite
2x Gem-Knight Iolite
1x Heavy Storm
1x Dark Hole
2x Maxx "C"
1x Return from a Different Dimension
1x Burial from a Different Dimension
2x Number 39: Utopia

My main focus at the time was to try and figure out how to spam Citrine as much as possible whilst waiting for Future Fusion for Master Dia. Swarming the field is a high focus, while hammering down with the Fusions you can get a hold of was sort of what I was trying to get at, and Citrine being able to stop the opponent reacting to his attack seemed like the best idea. Master Dia is like Destiny HERO Diamond Dudes bad ass older brother, so I only included one copy, cause that is all you need with Future Fusion. I added 3 Lazuli for that matter, being great fodder for Future Fuse with her effect to add any normal monster in the grave to the hand if she is sent be a card effect. Gemini Monsters are considered Normal Monsters in the Grave, so Win/Win if you want to pick up an Amber while you are at it. I wanted to include Iolite for some extra Grave picking with Lazuli, but with Obsidian, you can use Gem-Knight Fusion and toss him from the hand for the fusion of your pick AND get a Normal Monster out of the Grave.

I side decked Dark Hole and Heavy Storm to place in 2 Dark Bribes just out of preference. I'd like to keep this an even 40 cards. I wanted to include Topaz, but even though he can attack twice, his 1800 ATK just doesn't seem to cut it against what really matters. I wasn't sure about Maxx "C" because the deck didn't seem to have a lot of draw power, but I was afraid it would be a dead draw most of the time. Alexandrite seems like it would be a useful card, but I can't think of a scenario where I would want to tribute him for another Gem-Knight monster. Yes, I could tribute him off for an Amber, then use my normal summon that turn to get Ambers effect instantly, but that just seems very situational, and I don't think I would be keeping Amber on the field very long anyways.

Like I said, I haven't really had the chance to test this deck out yet, so any and all suggestions welcome. Helping me test this deck is even more appreciated, though now you kinda know my strategy, so I am at a severe disadvantage. Thanks all for the help!

-2x Lavalval Chain
+1x Gem-Knight Ruby
+1x Gem-Knight Zirconia

Lost the Lavalvals because I just couldn't find his effect useful. Daigusto Emeral can grab ANY Non-Effect Monster and special summon it, so I added in an Extra Zirconia. Non-Effect Fusion, boasting high attack and defence, why not? Also added in Gem-Knight Ruby for that extra UMPH behind an attack.

Final Edit:

I've made quite a few changes as I move along in this deck, and I have stopped keeping track of them. This isn't my actual deck anymore, and I don't plan on updating this list. I don't want this post removed because I believe it may be of some use to someone some day as a reference for building their own Gem-Knight deck. And also because I may need to reference it myself if I ever want to just go back to the original deck.
