About The Deck
Madolche are a sweet deck focused around recycling, combos, and their special ability to cycle from the grave to the deck (or hand with field spell) on destruction. Madolche are very good at breaking a board with only a single starter card, though it can sometimes struggle against negates so playing handtraps to bait out or nullify your opponent's negates are critical. Going first your opponent needs to boardwipe through multiple layers to prevent you going off turn3 and OTK'ing.
While Madolche is not a tier 1 meta deck, it is a very solid option with a soft Once Per Turn non-targeting return 1-2 to deck and the ability to on your opponents turn shuffle their GY combo pieces back into the deck.
Madolche players either swear by going second or think the deck works equally well first or second. Personally I think the negate of Promenade and GY trick with Teacher Glassouffle makes it better going first. If things go wrong you can always do your Turn2 play on Turn3 with the remnants of your board to help set things up. Its a matter of personal taste in the end.
The Madolche theme is tasty desserts representing a monarchy (the monsters) and an elaborate fantasy kingdom (spells/traps). With a total of about thirty cards, Madolche gets some well-deserved love, and has gotten notable support in a wide variety of sets like Savage Strike, Return of the Duelist, Eternity Code, Primal Origin, Abyss Rising, Flames of Destruction, Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy, Crossed Souls, and Dark Neostorm (not including reprints). The latest cards introduced into the archetype include now staples, Loading... and Loading... which is a powerful consistency booster and an omni-negate trap you can search.
Madolche Anjelly (Starter)
Anjelly is used in two primary ways. The first is to bring out Hootcake to banish her (or another monster like a handtrap) and get a Beast on the field with another summon or Petingcessoeur.
Madolche Hootcake (Starter?)
Madolche Magileine (Starter)
Regardless of your combo, having an extra lvl4 helps a lot with extending into the Extra Deck. Sistart, Tiara, and Teacher can all use her as a material.
Unfortunately Messengelato misses timing. For this reason set Ticket to the left of Salon and do not summon Messengelato with Chocolate if either Ticket or Salon triggers.
Madolche Petingcessoeur (Starter)
In nearly all circumstances she will bring out her big sister Puddingcess, exceptions are rare but exist.
Then it has the effect that any monster (NOT Madolche monster, ANY monster) added from GY to Deck can be sent to the hand instead. If you spin back a handtrap monster (through the effect of Teacher) you can put them back into your hand. Recycle those Ashes and make your opponent cry.
