Or the ones that say they should keep their deck to 20 cards when there's like literally 2 decks that have more than that.

But yet they are so extremely beautiful. I beg for them to be promoted to LDs every survey.
So, everyone can climb until phase 26 (DM).
After that, Circus Trick and Trap decks.
Best you can do is level up phase on Gx, DSoD, 5Ds and Zexal (if one day is added).

Those decks aren't really strong. You can even beat them with an auto duel deck.
If gamea/someone wants to know strategies against the lvl 20 SDs.

Bring 2k+ ATK/Def monster against Cu and you easy win.

The Charmer deck is difficult without any protection against their monster effects. If it sets a card, then you need 2k+ atk to overcome the charmer else you risk the no damage. W/o any backup it's possible that your own strong creatures will be used against you. To counter this bring either strong monster effect-immun monsters or use the ritual cage bringing skill with ritual monster use from Alexis(I do it so).

Fusion combination can bring out a 2200 atk monster(against monsters), so you need something that is even stronger ATK/Def-wise. Else anything over 1.5k will easy wreak this deck.

Gemini Monsters are easy to beat with 1.6k+ ATK monster.

For Spirit Monsters you need 1.8k beater to overcome even the decent Maharaghi. Stalling can be dangerous with the burn spell+Inaba monster.

Thousand Dragon is really annoying, not only with the Time Wizard, but also the fusion Thousand Dragon that can overcome normal strong beaters. So you need at the same time high ATK/Def and protection against monster effects. I use ritual monster with the ritual cage skill from Alexis for this 🔥our deck.

Thousand Energy can be surprising with its instant high ATK monster spawn. Anything below 2.4k ATK/Def is in danger except if it clog its field with the Balls. Then you can stall until you can bring the big beater as it will normally not use more than 1 energy(but I had the case with 2 played energies).

Union Aid can be very luck dependent/dangerous due the Flamberge sword. If it goes first, it can bring out a 2k beater, but the worst is when it goes second and have 2 of the swords + beast pumping out a 2.5k killer. Any destruction effects(that are not monster effects as those get negated at destruction) are very recommended in combination with 2k+ ATK/Def monsters.

Also very helpful, thanks. The easiest way to beat charmers though is just bring a 21 card deck and set monsters. Or use Divine attribute monsters (Swamp Mirrorer does it easily).
Tribute Summons can be dangerous surprising as any monster summoned can be tribute-doll into the dragon. While you are safe for 1 turn, you need a 2.4k+ Beater to overcome this problem. But be aware, that one of his monster can lock on your beater to destroy it after the third turn. But if you have enough ATK the turn after its summoned, you can OTK him through this, else you have either to wait or tribute your monster to remove the indestructible effect on that monster(or use piercing damage) or a destruction effect on it.

Elements unite skill is very useful and can be used against Union, Tribute, Fusion, Cu and Energy. It can't be used against Spirit, Charmer and Thousand Dragon as it's a gamble you very likely lose against, as those have one or several ways to either get rid of the Gate Guardian or damage you directly. Like the Rabbit for Spirit, Time Wizard for Dragon or any attribute Charmer stealing your Guardian.

Hopeful this helps!

My lvl 20 auto deck. Only pain is viser des. If he shows up, just tribe that monster and run him over. Otherwise an easy deck with Yugi. I love arsenal with element doom as a team. Most of my quickest wins came from these two.
How to get vider des in game? i cant find that card in all card database.

Any tips for getting rid of Wicked-Breaking Flamberge - Baou . It keeps wrecking me early on.

Twister is your best bet. Best quick S/T removal in the game.

If that's not in your card pool, Curse of Aging will reverse the ATK bonus at the cost of 1 discard. Don't run more than 2.

Free cards:
Windstorm of Etaqua (Mai Lvl 25), Block Attack (since Flamberge Baou only rise atk), De-Spell (Twister alternative).
The "Fusion Monsters" deck listed here is actually called "Fusion Combination" in the game, at least for the English version.
