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 or Restart, which are accessible to almost all duelists.
  • 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.

Ultimate Ancient Gear Golem

Balance skill is unnecessary. It's used to increase the chance of getting Polymerization or Fusion Sage in your starting hand.

Water Beatdown

You can use WATER monsters to make a beatdown deck by swarming the field and simply relying on their high attack. It's relatively cheap to make since many of them are low rarity or from the card trader. Mako's skill - Mythic Depths is recommended to used in this deck too.

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.

look mate, the AI is not shit, it is programmed to win and lose from time to time to dorce players to play by themselves, still, you can use auto-duel to farm but, sometimes it will win and sometimes it will not, is more a subject of statics than economic conspiracies

The A.I. makes some very idiotic decisions at times, but mine still has a 70-80% win-rate with just a cobbled together deck made from 6 days of playing and only opening about 50 packs. It regularly wins against the lvl 30-40 wanders too.

Just feed it something that isn't *complete* garbage and it should produce some wins.

I never trust the AI to begin with, I don't know why people love the auto-duel feature.

Dueling by yourself just takes a bit more time, it's not like it's gonna become a 1 hour duel without the AI. And there will be way less stupidity involved since you should know more about your new combo than an AI that requires update from Konami first.
The AI cheats.
I found 2 cases in which the AI do moves, it never showed before.

I have a Skull Guardian in defense position + Skelengel set. Next turn nothing(except Skull switch to attack and destroy opponent monster). Next turn suddenly - without any tribute/ritual possible(in hand) Skelengel is switched face up and it draw a BEWD and tribute both. Else it don't switch Skelengel up(not even for the remaing ATK needed for Killblow). Cheating nr. 1.

If opponent(Vagabund deck) has a specific backrow set, it will not attack too. Don't remember the exact card, but I saw this as I had to manually attack(the monster was in Attack position not defense) to see what the AI feared... Had to be SRH or so that trigger on specific condition(not a dmg changing card).

Another BS: If the opponent has a clearly stronger ATK monster out, the AI switch YOUR weaker monster to attack position to attack set opponent monster.
Use this to autoduel any level and if ur on a budget. Assessement points btwn 2500 to 4000 but usually in 3k range. Balance almost always guarantees u get out 2800 atk beater on first turn. Pretty high winrate even against lv 57 SD :)

also this deck can be used to farm lvl 30-40 Legendary duelists with no distroy cards. ( this deck can get extremly easy 7-8k points against Odion, just keep using beast rising to buff up 1 guy, last turn summon a extra enraged battle ox in case opponent summons a monster when you attack with your 10k+ atk monster)

Does great thanks bro I tried this ..
I wish they would let us autoduel at the gate.
When everybody is trying to improve AI performance, Konami is doing the opposite, making it impossible to play/to team with.

Nice backward vision. I've lost so many times cause of your retarded Kaiba AI. Using his Ennemy Controller to control a 600atk and crushing it again'st a 3500atk monster, leaving our side empty and less than 400LP... how fun is it? It's not.

Seriously, do something at least when it is Tag Duel. There is a HUGE difference between nerfing vs Purposely behaving like a kamikaze...

Honest mistake. He thought it said "Yugi" not "Yami". He meant to destroy "Yugi", right intentions at least.

The TAG duels are a test. There are real players who might be really dumb, Konami is making the AI behave stupidly to test to see how players will react to that to their partner screwing up.

I think you're missing the point. I have auto dueled master completely so many times. The ai is bad on purpose because it's supposed to be hard, hence why it's called master rank. If you can't beat this easy event you might as well quit playing DL.
Just some tips for u all. Use Increase/Decrease ATK Spell/Trap cards such as Wall of D, Metalmorph, Mirror Wall ect, instead of Econ or any Change Position card.

And then, use any 4 star beater + 5/6 star monster or any monster that stronger than 4 star and need only 1 tribute.

The only time u lose is when u hv no monster or u can't decrease their ATK below ur monster (like Master Oz deck).

Or cards like SRH
Best tip i can give :

Never use Ennemy Controller with Auto-Duel.

AI is always wasting it and gives opportunity for the duellist to defeat you.

Most popular example is when AI uses second effect to destroy one of your OP monster (3000+atk) to take a low monster (normal monster, 500 or less atk) on your opponent side, then you lose next turn because you have nothing left on the field.

Another case is when you have 1 monster on the field (ex.1500atk, 400LP) and Wall of disruption + Ennemy controller in hand. Your opponent has 2 monsters (700atk, 2000atk, 600LP). Guess what happens, AI use Ennemy Controller on the 700atk to switch it to defense, doesnt set the trap, attack the monster in defense, and you die next turn.

I'm really about to think that this Auto-duel AI is meant to make you lose xD

If only the AI skills would improve the further you go through stages. But no, it remains dumb as hell.

Best tip I can give is a used Q-tip I used last morning.
I managed to save up more than 15k gems.
Though 5k of them are in the gift box so will disappear soon.
I'm not sure how to build a deck for auto dueling.
Can I get some advice?
horrible ai. I lost so many matchup that i'm suppose to win, like when i got an enemy controller with an equip card. the ai decide to swap, then use the equip card on his opponent preventing lethal. then i lost. like wtf. how bad can these auto bots be
