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!

You want a tip NEVER AUTO DUEL, is garbage the AI is programed to lose every time no matter what deck you use

You do realize this game is grindy as hell right? I know how to play Maiden with Eyes of Blue and then use Sage with Eyes of Blue to pull two Blue Eyes White Dragons out. I don't need to do that 800 times grinding out ai. The ai should know how to do that too instead of normal summoning a 0 attack tuner that doesn't do anything. Wastes my time and "energy" since this is a gacha game.

You can't even use auto duel to fight humans or legendary duelists. So the idea that you're relying on it is utterly ridiculous.

I like to use (10pcs) high def (2000+) and low atk 4 lvl monsters for force xyz summons for the plus points. Use some 1-3 lvl tuners for syncro summ. and use glossy and prismatic cards too. And some traps like Jelly Cannon prevent dangerous situations and also gives plus points.

I wouldn’t recommend tuners. The AI sometimes summons 3 tuners and then the duel takes forever

Nedds to put in the extra deck xyz monsters to avoid this situation.
Balance needs to be update
In my opinion, the best auto duel deck is still:

10 to 17 high ATK level 4 monsters (normal monsters work best. Otherwise only use effect monsters with effects that you can't mess up)
3 Power of the Guardians
0 to 7 traps with simple effects (e.g. wall of diruption, all trap hole cards, drowning mirror force, dimensional prison, etc)

Extra deck: You might be tempted to use some rank 4 extra deck monsters but the AI tends to use your level 4 monsters that are equipped with PotG as material. That's why I prefer to use no extra deck deck at all.

The deck doesn't always win. But at least the AI can't do any silly mistakes.

What's also important:
DON'T USE HAND TRAPS! The AI likes to summon Sphere Kuriboh or Kiteroid in attack position for no reason.
DON'T USE CARDS WITH DRAWBACKS! Such cards can and will backfire eventually.
DON'T USE DEFENSIVE MONSTERS! The duel might take forever in such cases because the AI keeps them in defense mode and does absolutely nothing.
this section needs an slightly update.
AI is just too stupid. We need an upgraded AI with full command setting. We should be allow to set what AI should do and what AI should not do.

Konami should at least allow the AI to use skills.

You are asking too much here.

The AI got a good downgrade not long ago.

Each time a new broken and F2P auto-deck is made Konami downgrades it.

They really want you to use that credit card instead of gems reward.
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.

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.

There is only 1 deck in this game that will give you the best auto duel experience - Blackwing. There is no point using other trash deck already, I have had enough of this.
Auto duel AI: "I summon Kiteroid in attack mode and equip it with Power of the Guardians. I end my turn."

Opponent's AI: "WTF dude?"
