[Skill] descriptionUser
Your starting hand will reflect the card balance of your deck. This Skill will not activate unless you have at least 6 of each type of card (Monster, Spell, and Trap) in your Deck.

None of these cards are actually required to make this deck work. You can build you own version by keeping these ideas in mind:

  • Maha Vailo is can easily gain lots of attack when equipped with multiple Equip cards, therefore it is best to add as many copies as you have of him.
  • Piercing Damage is good for quickening the duel since your opponent will be setting his monsters face-down when your monsters get too strong.
  • The best skill to use would be Balance which is accessible to almost every duelist.
  • When using Balance, make sure you have at least 6 monster cards, 6 spell cards, and 6 trap cards to make the skill work.
  • Equip spells are usually preferable over equip traps because they can be activated immediately.
  • When using Balance you can decrease the number of monsters in this deck to 6, because you will still be guaranteed a monster in your starting hand.
  • Remember to keep your equip cards generic enough so that every monster in your deck is compatible with any equip card.

What are auto decks?

Auto decks are decks that are mainly made to be used with the "Auto-Duel" function. The reason why people often want to go with Auto-Duel is simply because it is done much faster than manual play, since it is fast forwarded and easy to use with just one button. Keep in mind that win rates for auto decks vary depending on what level of Standard Duelists you are going against.

SD's decks

2 types of auto decks

1. Made to win

Some decks are made to have a high chance of winning and ends fast. This is good if you ever want to level a character quickly or buy a "Boosted Duel Orb" from the shop. With only an hour of infinite standard duelist spawns, winning the duels quickly can earn you a lot of exp, levelling a character up quite fast.

2. High score for items

The other type of decks are made to get a high score with auto duels. These decks might not have a consistently high win rate compared to the ones made to win, but they can often give up to 3000 or 4000 easily by using auto duel from the start. Earning a lot of points from the Duel Assessment will give more rewards like golds, stones/orbs, and most importantly, the standard gate keys and the colored ones used to farm Legendary Duelists.

How to make an Auto Deck

3 things you should know to build a good auto deck:

1. AI Interaction
You will need to get a good understanding of how the game's AI work, which can change from time to time. Press the auto-duel and see how they interact with some of the cards. It's recommended to keep things simple by using cards like Reinforcements, Metalmorph or Riryoku.

2. Which monsters and spells work best
Making an auto deck that's made to just win the duels can be pretty easy. All you need is to put a lot of monsters with high attack like Warrior Dai Grepher or Jerry Beans Man, and use spells that can increase their attack like Banner of Courage, Reinforcements or any equip spell cards like Wicked-Breaking Flamberge - Baou.

3. Check the Duel Assessment page
To make an auto deck that gives a lot of points, you will need to understand first what are the things you need to do to get a lot of points. Take a look at the Duel Assessment section. Make an auto deck that can tribute, fusion or ritual to get more points, destroy 5 enemy monsters or be able to summon Meteor B. Dragon to deal over 3,000 damage. Being able to end the duel fast from either turn 1-4 can also earn the quick victory bonus.

Useful skills

AI cannot activate skills manually. That means you will set a skill activated automatically to your auto deck.

Example of skills work in auto duel

Power of DarkPeak Performance
Dinosaur KingdomeMythic Depth
BalanceLP Boost skills

Example of skills AI cannot use

As mentioned above, skills activated manually cannot be used in Auto Duel since AI do not activate them. You should not build auto duel decks with those skills. Here are examples of such skills.

SwitcherooDraw Sense skills
Draw PassRestart

How to speed up

Change the "Power Usage" from the in-game settings and set it to max to increase the game's speed. It will make it look more fluent and smoother, but it will of course drain more of your battery to run it.

More examples of auto decks

In the game, you can also find a lot of people sharing their auto decks that work well for them and might be good for anyone that have those cards. Visit the deck board from the right most building to see what they use, and use the copy feature to copy the recipe to your characters. Check for the highly rated decks and see their deck names, if they have "オート" written on them, it means that they are an auto deck.

Comments appreciated!

Use Cyber Slash Harpie Lady with Treacherous & Hunting Ground (either skill or a 1 of) and Harpie Lady 1 to summon with Egotist (available from Card Trader).

I have yet to see the AI misplay with the deck, and have only lost twice when I've bricked (e.g. Egotist, Feather Rest, Hysteric Sign & Treacherous in opening hand & not drawing into any of the 12 Harpies in the deck).

I would love a updated version of the auto deck

So, does that mean the sign of becoming true duelist is being able to make deck that can't be played by AI? Does it mean the more your deck lose with Auto-duel, you're deck is smart and complex?

^ not really for example the AI can't handle a super heavy samurai deck however building that deck makes you a very bad player (more stu pid than bad but still bad)

AI can't even handle the most straight-forward decks.
Wanna build Neos Fusion? It's using two good monsters to tribute summon a Vanilla beater (same with Dark Magician).
Wanna build SHS? It's going to summon the monsters in ATK position sometimes
Wanna build Six Sam? It will spam Enishi's and Shien's effect at every single situation
Wanna build stall? They will summon Sphere Kuriboh and Kiteroid

I also like it when you have a stall deck and the AI switches your Celtic to ATK position to attack a face down monster and then your opponent summons a strong monster that reduces the rest of your LP to 0 because your LP are low due to similar misplays that happened before
Auto duel is just too useless, it never use a deck correctly. This is the thing that should be upgraded. It is a humiliation when you have a top tier deck and played like an idiot by a fourth rated computer. People hated AI more than anything else.

gotta admit its just a little painful to watch
All of these decks suck because it’s too much strategy for the auto dual so to figure out. You’re better off playing a bunch of 8 vanilla 2000 beaters and 3 level 4 angel trumpeter tuners with traps and 3 power of the guardian and some level 8 synchros, boom problem solved

Yep, simple decks are the best, since that's what Auto Duel AI is meant for, to teach you how to play using the basic decks available to you at the start of the game.

i used naturia deck from wonder land box, So Refreshing To Watch Auto Duel
The AI apparently finds Sphere Kuriboh more useful as a bear stick than as hand trap. Garage.

AI uses sphere kuriboh to humiliate others but it often fails.

It usually results in the later. I’ve seen the AI use all set backrow cards just because it could even though it didn’t change the game state.
Why ai doesnt use 2 mask change on anki to finish the duel?2 mask change would be enough to finish the duel.fix this issues

They can but they don't want. They want sticked to their game but instead of achieving that by giving good events or something they do so by very mediocre means. As expected of kOnAmI

Events have no relation to AI. The real reason they make auto duel AI dumb is to force you to play the game, because you're the duelist, you're the one who is supposed to play.

Auto Duel is originally just meant to teach newbies the basics, how to play the game with the cards they have. And Konami wants to stick to that.

Konami can improve the AI but they won't, why? To keep you using the app for as long as possible......yeah a very pathetic way to do so

You might think it's pathetic but that's actually the entire point. They're running a business here, they want you to actually use their product.

For that gentelman who improvised by using random synchro monsters, please read this again: "without generic synchro like Brionac"
Synchro monsters you are using are generic synchro. I only wrote Brionac for example.
Should I have written "Only Shien" to prevent misunderstanding like this?

Talking to me? Cause besides Shi En, it goes to level 7-10 Synchro for game.
Lot of people here complaining on how dumb AI is. If they upgrade AI then the farming will also gets harder that's why its ok if they're dumb you just need to make your Auto duel deck basic so AI can handle it.

Dude, what are you talking about. The AI is very dumb only when it plays for us. When it is playing against us, it's very smart.

I believe most of us have experience losing against Vagabonds who used their meta decks properly and correctly.

But when AI plays for me, it does stupid things every time.

True. I guess it's why I only Auto-Dueled The Vagabond with F2P Brave News, F2P REBD or Gravkeeper's with Quintet Magician. Every other Deck I try loses in 1-3 turns

no, if they upgrade the AI, more people won't play the game and just leave it to the AI.

That's why they keep making the AI dumber, you're the duelist, so you're the one supposed to play the game.

Stupid Komoney please make sure that your AI will ONLY summon Gozuki in ATTACK position. I just don't understand how stupid AI can set this card. That is the stupidest move I have ever seen. AI needs an upgrade.

6 Sam is the best deck for auto duel. But remember that you should only have Shi En in your extra deck and nothing else.
Nishina Momoka
These 2 are my fave and really fun to watch. Works great against lv57 SD. For some duels (like lv57 UA) you need to switch to manual for better assurance.

Backrow are interchangeable, suit your preferences. Cheers! :)
why street replay are not available? i can not watch and gain 5 diamonds from yesterday
