An Introduction To Invoked Dogmatika Shaddoll

Disclaimer: I am by no means an expert on this deck, or the game in general. I have never played the TCG in any close to modern capacity. I have just built this deck in MD and reached Plat 1 multiple times with it. I am sure there are things that more skilled players may find lacking in this post. Nevertheless, if you're a beginner to the game or this deck I believe that this could be helpful for you. So, let's get into it!

What is IDS? Why play it?

Invoked Dogmatika Shaddoll, or IDS for short, is a deck focused on summoning Loading... , a potential omni-negate, and Loading... , a floodgate on legs, on the first turn (more or less) to prevent the opponent from playing the game.

This deck is interesting for new or returning players, because it combines old school mechanics (namely Fusion Summoning) with modern Yugioh gameplay. The combos aren't super complicated, and it's easy to find success initially even though you might not play the deck to it's full potential, as some decks just straight up can't out Winda.

This Deck is around Tier 2 right now, and will become even stronger once we get Loading... . To give you a juicy preview: The recent YCS (big TCG tournament) was won with this deck.

Core Cards

Main Deck

Aleister, the Invoker

Your main starter. He searches Loading... for you, enabling your Invoked Fusion plays. To see him as often as possible, we play Loading... and Loading... . If you open a combination of these cards, you can fire one of them to bait out a possible Loading... before commiting to the Normal Summon.

Recommended ratios: 3 Aleister, 2 Meltdown, 1 Terraforming

[Note: If Meltdown was at 3, we would play 3]


Your Invoked Fusion spell. Aleister searches it for you, and it keeps recycling both itself and Aleister, potentially generating advantage every turn.
