I have changed all the slides to blank and I still cannot delete the 13 slide masters that were created by pasting slides in.  It does not give you the option to paste into current master and creates a duplicate of exactly the same master everytime you paste a slide.

 

It does not let you delete slide master even if no slide is using it.

Karin, I don't know if you were able to successfully delete Slide Masters that were 'used by no slides' but I was having a similar problem... ergo, I found myself searching for an answer in this forum. Then I remembered the old-school method of getting things to work when they're not working like they should: shut it down and try again. When right-clicking and cutting wasn't doing the trick, I closed and restarted SL; went into the Slide Master view, right-clicked one of the stubborn masters and VOILA! It worked!

Hopefully, you were able to get yours resolved, otherwise give this a try. But you've certainly come to the right place for answers.

Thanks -- I did get it to work eventually.

I have found another fix for this problem for wanting to delete Master Slides.  If you have any layers, you will need to apply the layout to each layer.  Then that will allow you to delete any Slide Masters you no longer want.  I have attached a screen shot as an example.
