Relinquished: deck recipe

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.

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.

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

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

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.

My suggestion from experience - if you do not have x2 Sonic Bird, Thousand-whatever and Sphere Ebola, do not play Relinquished. He becomes too inconsistent and actually bad. It's like Gravekeeper deck with 1 Recruiter and 1 Cheif - not worth it at all.

if i don't have 2 copied of Sonic Bird and Senju of the Thousand Hands can i also use 3 relinquished and 3 Black Illusion Ritual instead?

Can Interdimensional Matter Transporter protect Relinquished from Gravelstorm, Order to Charge, and Skull Lair during Battle Phase? If so then the only cards that can 100% kill Relinquished are Michizure and Divine Wraith, are I right? So far I haven't got chances to test this out so it would be lovely if someone knows the answer.

Now you can!!
How to play in most KoG games:

- Set a useless monster
- Wait for your opponent to take your useless monster with a Relinquished
- Start putting down your powerful monsters
- ????
- Profit.

Devine Wrath (counters effects) Soul Exchange (tributes opponents monster) Despell/Wild Tornado (then attack) [I can think of 4 more strategies off the top of my head for defeating relinquished]

There are many ways/cards to counter it. The problem is whether you can draw those cards in time when relinquished users typical can consistently summon them in the 2nd turn. Having 3 copies of Reliniquished in this game only make it even more unbalanced since the moment you get rid of one relinquished the next one comes right back in the next turn.
