Dinosaur Kingdom (Dark Dricera): deck recipe

Duel Links Top Story
New Card Box has been leaked!
update 16/09/2017


Like most other Dinosaur decks, this one is made to beatdown your opponent with easily summoned monsters. With the attack boost from Jurassic World, your monsters will be higher than anything with the same amount of tributes to summon.

Dinosaur Kingdom
Begin duel with the field spell "Jurassic World" activated.


How to use

Jurrasic World

Having Jurassic World on the field is crucial to playing this deck, because it gives all your dinosaur-type monsters significant attack and defense boosts. This makes them stronger than any monster of the same level which is important for a beatdown deck, otherwise you won't be beating down much of anything. Add extra copies of Jurassic World in case the one you get at the start of the duel is destroyed, and you can search out these extra copies with Destroyersaurus.

Sergeant Electro

Use Sergeant Electro to lockdown your opponent's set spell/trap cards, or force them to activate it early making less than optimal plays. But since Sergeant Electro has below average attack and defense stats, you will need the cards mentioned below to protect him and keep your opponent's backrow locked.


Maintain your field presence is important in a beatdown deck, so you need to use cards that can protect your monsters from stronger monsters your opponent might have.

  • Use Mirror Wall to halve your opponent's attack and cause him to lose his monster. This will also force him to end the battle phase, as any monster that attacks will also get their attack points halved.
  • Windstorm of Etaqua and Curse of Anubis can both protect you from multiple enemy attacks by changing them to defense position, but keep in mind that Curse of Anubis will only change effect monsters to defense position. When in defense position you can attack them with Dark Driceratops to inflict piercing damage.

Revive Dark Dricera

You can send Dark Driceratops to the graveyard and revive him with Fossil Excavation for an easy summon, although if Fossil Excavation is destroyed Dark Driceratops is also destroyed. Keep in mind that if you have a dinosaur-type monster in your graveyard, you can discard Dark Driceratops then revive the same Dark Driceratops you used as cost. You can also simply normal summon Dark Driceratops by tributing 1 monster, although slower this method does not rely on you keeping another card on the field for him to stay.

Bastion gave us Oxygeddon and Hydrogeddon which are pretty good for Dino decks. Oxy's just a generic 1800ATK for those who failed to snag Destroyersaurus during Rex's event but Hydrogeddon is really good and easily swarms the field.

Black Tyranno isn't that good but I like to throw in one since it's not hard to summon with Excavation or Hunting Instinct and it's stronger than Driceratops. It has higher DEF than the Jurrac too.
I have been using a kaiba Beatdown dark dricera deck in Plat and it's been getting wins

Protip: don't copy paste GameA decks, like this one, they're are usually bad or not competitive enough for pvp. You may use this deck as base idea, but just don't copy paste entirely

One of, if not even, the best beatdown deck you can have right now. play, summon triceratops, attack and win. if your opponent can't stop triceratops it's practically over: piercing dmg, 2.7K atk, 1.8K def, 1x tribute needed and you can have 3 of them with the greatest of ease. most of your games will be like: Veni, vidi, vici

Then I Read Skill Again and It only works on LV 6 Boo
I have had only 4 level 30's during this event but Rex 40 wont drop me the 2 more Destroyersaurus I need! :(
i use storm to clear opponent;s backrow
Just someone
What about Hunting Instinct as an answer to the SS-heavy meta? When someone would SS a REBD/REZD or Phoenix you can answer with Dark Driceratops or Tyranno with Jurassic World would give you a monster of 2700ATK or more. Even with Beatdown enemy would break even in terms of ATK. Or is Hunting Instinct too situational?

Youre ignoring the fact phoenix destroys the field spell. Thus beatdown will make it stronger than dark triceratops, not mentioning wild tornado. Youre also ignoring the fact red eyes can easily summon 2 or more red eyes in one turn, thus beatdown will offer 600 atk each. Not the mention champ vig for some red eyes deck.
do not use Jurassic world in this deck
Better SRHL instead of Jurassic World. Minimizes dead hands and gives a way to deal with REBD, Phoenix etc
The reviewer
* 2000 ATK straight off the bat.
(exception is made by the sergeant)
* Can get Dricera quick on the field
* When that happens it has a higher ATK than
those pesky REBD/Phoenix cards.

* Jurassic World +2 is a downer when
* Lack of backrow removal
* Lack of swarming
* When Fossil Excavation is used, Driceras
trampling effect is gone.
* No answers to REBD, Phoenix, 3*DeMo TBD,
toons, ..

In short;
A fun deck to play in PVE, however in PVP, you're going to have a hard time.
