Duel Links Top Story
Yami Marik unlock event announced!
update 26/06/2017

Overview

The core idea of the deck is to use Gateway to Chaos to get Swift Gaia the Fierce Knight into your hand, then Storm to destroy their backrow, and summon your other monsters, which all have high attack when you have little to no cards. The original idea is from Duel Links Meta Swift Gaia deck video.

How to use

High attack

Add swift gaia to hand

Storm wild tornado

Set Wild Tornado then use Storm to destroy it. This will trigger the effect of Wild Tornado to destroy a face up card while using Storm to destroy opponent's spell/trap, allowing you a chance to OTK your opponent.

Steal enemy monster

  • Use the second effect of Enemy Controller to gain control of an enemy monster to open for a direct attack. Then before the end phase use Dimension Gate to remove the monster from play.
  • When your opponent tries to attack you directly or when Dimension Gate is destroyed, special summon the monster removed from play with Dimension Gate's effect. With this combo, you gain permanent control of the monster.

Personally I don't think this deck is meta anymore. First of all, this deck was created by Dkayed during the WC final qualifiers to counter meta decks of that moment (Weevil, Harpie, etc), Dkayed explained the mentioned above in a video. Now we have two new card boxes and structure decks so the meta has changed to swarming decks, which are much faster than this deck. Even I doubt if Dkayed itself would use this deck in this actual form, probably he would modify it before using it to counter the counter meta.

Two d.gates and chaos gateways could work. Replace the third copy with any useful card you like, mirror wall, etaqua, adhesion trap hole, rising energy, wonder balloon even.

8/20 monsters including gates, you'll probably lost more than winning with RNG -.-

This is the deck DKayed used to finish 1st in the NA final qualifiers, its a really good deck, though now with the new pack you'll probably want to use a blue flame swordsman variant

Dkayed created this deck and came first place in the WCS using it, don't jump to conclusion so quickly like my ex, learn how to observe and think.
