D/D/D looks awful, no offense. Berfomet, Cerberus, Apocalypse, Maxwell and Doom Armageddon don't add to a final board. At most, I would play 1 leonidas and 1 D 'arc.
Id also increase the amount of Lamias, Necro and Swirl slime, and Kepler to 3 (Maybe only necro at 2). They are important combo pieces. Where are you keeping Abyss Ragnarok and Thomas? They are really good cards for D/D/D What are you even planning to set with Gilgamesh? Pendulum Summoning isn't as good in DDD as in other archetypes.
Contract Change and Human Recourses are extremely slow for such underwhealming effects. Only trap wirth playing in DDD is Cotract with the witch.
The extra deck is a big mess and is missing important cards like Odd-eyes burst, Genghis and High Ceasar. Also, no rank 8s? No Number 38 or Kali Yuga?

Why are you playing "Dark Magic Veil" when you can just play Monster Reborn, also why not playing 3 rod? It's literally your only good Normal Summon of the entire deck.

All but DMG and DM can SS themselves from the hand. Rod you never want to SS.

Bruh you already run Eternal Soul, you don't need 2 ways to summon that guy. Specially when 1 of the ways is unsearchable

Dark Magician without Red-Eyes B. Dragon for Dragoon is useless.
In short, it is to redo the decklist from scratch and review it with the new supports.

You could also run Magicalized Fusion for making a second Dragoon and running verte so you don't have to draw it.

As a Blackwing player I had pain looking at that deck list but can you explain yr thought process in that deck because it’s more like you just grabbed every card that had “blackwing” in its name and made it into a deck.

I'm going to speak about that blackwing deck. My friend who has been playing Blackwings for a very long time would see this build and immediately think it'd belong in the trashcan.

First, Shura is no longer ran in the deck. It's too slow.
Second, Simoon is God Tier why wouldn't you max that out?
Third, Elphin the Raven, just...why? It's bad. If you have a Blackwing monster on the field, you already normal summoned. Making this card dead.
Fourth, Vayu is no longer good.
Fifth, Sirocco the Dawn, no longer ran in the deck.
Sixth, drop gladius. You don't need it.
Seventh, Drop the Drizzle, no reason to play an extender that makes you lose a monster.
Eighth, Raptor Wing Strike? ewww.
Nineth, Fake Feather? That is doing nothing, too slow.
Tenth, Black Wing Revenge? No....
Eleventh, as cute as Anti Reverse is. Don't.
Twelfth, Black Sonic, see above.


This is not even touching the extra deck problems.

Blackwing - Auster the South Wind is really good
Blackwing - Breeze the Zephyr is also pretty good.
Allure of Darkness says hi!
Raidraptor - Strangle Lanius great extender for the deck. Have a dark? Special Summon it!
Raidraptor - Wise Strix can let you play into Ultimate Falcon.
Raidraptor - Force Strix can literally search you a blackwing.
Phantom Knights' Rank-Up-Magic Force Banish monsters from GY for the next card
Dark Requiem Xyz Dragon Hello I can negate a card!

This isn't even going into Tri-Brigade variant

There's more I can probably add, but my knowledge on the deck is limited as I mostly watch my friend play the deck.

I think your biggest problem is, using Duel Links as a base.

Don't do that, never do that. Strategies that work there won't work in the TCG/OCG. The TCG/OCG has a better cardpool while a different banlist. So things you'd normally get away with on Duel Links wouldn't apply at all.

Next, you need to learn how to identify what cards are good and what cards are bad.

You also need to have an end game in mind and focus on that.

If I recall you said earlier you like to plan for things in case stuff happens so you end up planning for too much stuff. But if you focus on making sure your deck can play (for example stopping hand traps with Called By or even Crossout Designator), you should be fine.

You also should be running staples as well. Monster Reborn is legal, so why not run it in every deck?
