Branded DespiaDuelist Cup DLv. Max from
Notes & Combos
Same exact list I used to reach Diamond 1. I waited 3 days to submit it so I could include a couple more interesting replays.
Interestingly, I found myself actually summoning Brigrand on the board a couple of times: you can still send useful targets like Albion or Ad Libitum when making it with Branded Fusion, it gives your other monsters targeting protection (I did not know this previously) but, most importantly, it is a Beast monster, which helps a lot against Rivalry as Beast is the best type to lock yourself into due to Chimera being pretty much your only out. Worst case scenario, it is another beater on the board.

Branded Lost is the MVP as usual.
