Arcana Knight: deck recipe

Duel Links Top Story
Yami Marik event part 2 is live now!
update 23/09/2017


Fusion Summon Arcana Knight Joker with King's Knight, Queen's Knight and Jack's Knight. Then use Arcana Knight Joker as a really big beater that can negate effects that target him. Duel Standby helps you get as many cards in your starting hand as possible, because Arcana Knight Joker is essentially a -3 to summon.

How to use

The Face Card Knights

Kings KnightQueens KnightJacks Knight

Get King's Knight, Queen's Knight and Jack's Knight anywhere in your field or hand so that you can fuse them together. If Queen's Knight is on the field you can summon King's Knight to special summon Jack's Knight from your deck. If needed The Face Knights can even serve as beaters, but without anything to boost them they are quite underwhelming.

Summoning Arcana Knight Joker

Arcana Knight JokerPolymerization

Arcana Knight Joker can only be special summoned by using King's Knight, Queen's Knight and Jack's Knight as Fusion Materials. (You cannot use fusion substitute monsters.) But after being this difficult to summon, he comes with excellent stats and a protection effect which makes him somewhat worth the effort. You can negate any effect that targets him by discarding a card of the same type.

Dodge effects

Interdimensional Matter Transporter

Arcana Knight Joker can only negate effects that target him and only if you have the same type of card in your hand, so your boss monster might be in danger under some situations. To save him, you can use Interdimensional Matter Transporter to temporarily remove him from play.

Tested out the deck. Very inconsistent. First off, you need all 3 specific fusion materials (substitute can't work) + 1 poly; thats 4 cards. Then need to protect Queen that only has 1500 ATK so that you can bring out King and Jack next turn. Even if you managed to bring out Arcana Knight, you need at least 1 spell 1 trap and 1 monster in hand to launch a safe attack against enemy. Well, by this point enemy probably has 3 monsters on field waiting for you. Kill them 1 by 1? Oh I got 3 more turns to draw more cards and figure out a way to counter attack.

Tested my own version in casual duels. Brick all the time =.="

What's an alternative for Fusion Sage?

King of the Swamp - far better. If you don't have that either, just replace them with whatever 2 cards you think are best.
Any other skills that can be used for this deck?

What should I take out?
You can use field-commander rahz to pick queen or king knights from the deck. Perfect if you already have jack and king/queen in your hand alongside poly
I run this deck by replacing the Fusion Sages. I use 1 of the new Fusion Recycling Plant and 1 of the King of the Swamp since I do not have any Fusions. 2 or 3 of all URs resetting and not 1 fusion sage....O_O!!!! But this deck works well.

Be careful with King of the Swamp, it doesn't count as Fusion Material for Arcana due to its effect.

This one is better than Tempest

absolutely, even if you managed to summon AKJ you probably cant summon another one. Its really hard to summon this bad boy in this game
Here's my version using Last Gamble:

Monsters: 8
- Serket x2
- Dekoichi x3
- Crystal Seer x3

Spells: 9
- Temple of Kings x3
- Celestial Transformation x3
- Storm x3

Traps: 4
- Wild Tornado x2 - 3
- Typhoon x2 - 1

Extra Deck: 1 - 5
- Arcana Knight Joker (max.2)
- BEUD/Master of Oz (not mandatory)
armor breaker is useful in this deck
