Relinquished: deck recipe

Duel Links Top Story
Upcoming new cards!?!
update 24/05/2017



The effect of Relinquished is very versatile in current card pool.


  • Expensive. Two essential cards, Sonic Bird and Senju of the Thousand Hands, are both UR cards from booster packs.
  • Very weak against Skull Lair.

[Skill] descriptionUser
Can be used after starting hand is distributed. Shuffle all the cards from your hand into the Deck. Then draw the starting hand again.


How to use this deck

Summoning Relinquished

Since the whole deck is based around summoning Relinquished as soon as possible, use all the cards you have just to summon him as fast as you can. Always play "Sonic Bird" and "Senju of the Thousand Hands" in face up position in order to trigger their effect.

Clearing opponents board

Always use Relinquished's effect on opponent's stronger monster or a monster that has a problematic effect for you. Use Fulfillment of the Contract in case your Relinquished gets destroyed.

Annoying cards

While Relinquished is strong and is able to take control of enemy monster, it’s still weak to cards like "Hane-Hane", "Yomi Ship", and "Order to Charge". Use Interdimensional Matter Transporter to evacuate your Relinquished.

What's the point in the bird/senju if your gonna have 21 cards? Take out poly.

With how much card searching he has, 21 cards is not bad, but I will say drop 1 Sonic&Senju for something else like EC or the new Rush Quick Spell. Even the Trap Inspiration can help so no need for major change or copy meta conformity.
The first example is terrible and will get dead hands or lose field presence easily due the fact you only run 4 level monsters that be can normal summoned (not counting sphere). Basically -3 Thunder Dragons (are useless without switcheroo), add +2 Sergeant electro and other 1800-1850 beaters.
How do you make this deck without Ultimate Rising pack?
I already have two Relinquished but it's so hard to build a synergy between cards.
Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!

you can try without switcheroo and thunder dragons and using bakura's fiend farewell so you can get the djinn that's a 1 star. change the sonic bird to gateway to chaos. you will have to test it and see if it works well or not.

How do I make gateway to chaos work? Thanks for reply bud.
<< Anonymous(Prodigy)

First, of course, you need to have the card in your hand. The requirements of using gateway to chaos is that you need to have at least 1 BLS or Gaia in your deck ( otherwise you can't use it, so if you already have both Gaias in your hand, unless you have switcheroo or card trader, it's essentially a dead card. Other than that, it's a really great field spell in my opinion, can get ritual spells.

this deck cannot work unless you have at least 2 sonic birds + 2 senju. I mean I understand; you want to make a Relinquished deck but it's not possible until you get those 2. Your win rate with subpar cards like Gateway to Chaos would be inconsistent. There are 2 types of relinquished decks -- Harpie's Hunting Ground or Generalized Relinquish, but both require Sonic Bird which is from U.R.
Playing this almost feels like cheating.

Interdimensional Matter Transporter. They are a level reward from kaiba. They bannish one of your monsters until the end of the turn.

why is this no longer tier 1? just because there are cards that kill rituals doesnt mean everyone is going to run them, if your not up against a ritual deck they're dead cards...
Retarded P2W deck... Every opponent plays relinquished in turn 2, sometimes 2 of them wtf, if i don't draw 1 or 2 answers in turn 2 i lose, so lame...

Not exactly pay to win when you have to grind to unlock Relinquished.

It's PTW because a good variant requires you to shell out dosh for Senju/Bird.
How do you get 3 relinquish? i thought you can only get 2 (1 from unlock, 1 from pegasus event)

There have been 2 Pegasus events since the start
why not use Balance instead of Restart?
How could I improve this deck?

take out the mirror walls, polys, dragons. add more sonic brids, kuriboh, and senju if you have any more (3 is the best). if not, add crytal seers to help search for your key cards. Add 3 econs or security orbs if you dont have any. finally use the 2 interdimensional transporters you get from leveling up Kaiba. made it to plat 1 with this cancer deck.
My Relinquished deck was destroyed by Harpies Hunting Ground. There are strategies now that make Relinquished less OP.

Wow so much salt. LOVE how people get so mad at others for using a deck that wins

People are not mad because you use a deck that wins, people are mad because this deck is literally streamlined and boring. Turn 1, discard Thunder Dragon for 2 Thunder Dragons. Keith switcheroos one. Normal summons Sonic Bird/Senju/set Interdimensional Matter Transporter, pass. Turn 3 Relinquished comes, absorbs something you OTK

@Edgar81539 You forgot to discard the second Thunder Dragon to get the third Thunder Dragon back and use switcheroo again on your next turn, in case you don't get all the cards you need.

Sem 2 Pássaros e 2 Senjus conplica ( também não tenho kk ), mas você pode focar em mais cartas de compra, como o fragmento da Ganância ou mesmo 2 Jarras. E nessas condicões você PRECISA de um ou 2 contratos até, pq se perder um Renunciado é difícil invocar outro, Transportador cabe até melhor, já wue tem os Vermes e o campo ñ fica vazio

Tá com erros do bom e velho português pq escrevi rápido e ainda estou haha
Since Switheroo is nerfed Pure Relinquished will have to use Restart and Mind Scan (If using Sergeant Electro). Maybe Bluff Trap could work as well.

Need 3 copies, running Dark attribute deck for PVP KoG.
This pack is trash, like others said. I can't see any meta defining card worth getting like ...
Duke (otogi) used that card on the Yugioh PSP games. He used a deck based on Mecha Phantom Beast ...
I got it by leveling Marik. Early, but I forget which level.
