Balance Handless Swift Gaia: deck recipe

Duel Links Top Story
Yugi Muto unlock event has started!
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.

Why is it called handless? It makes me think its a deck to farm standard duelist.

Because you have 0 cards in your hand 99% of the time to synergize with Swift Gaia and Flash Assailant

If you change a couple of cards in this deck, it can make it to legend 2. I did it, you can do it too. Wild tornado in this deck is pointless. Think of replacements ;)

wild tornado is not pointless and a few people have made it to KoG with 2x Gaia and wild tornados...please stop

the weird thing about having 2 gaia in this deck is you can have gaia in your starting hand, then draw gaia on your first draw if you went second, and then youre fucked.

So happy to be able to use this deck now. Got zero d gates last time around with paradox. Even with 2 Gaia probably isn't as good now as it was when dkayed first used it for the qualifier, but still loads of fun in the few games I've used it in since getting third d gate today!

that is if you want a way to regenerate your monsters (since theres a total of 5 in the deck)
Plat 3
and climbing with this deck, own variant:
3 flash assailant
2 swift gaia
3 chaos zone
2 E-con
1 anti magic arrow
3 storm
1 nobleman of extermination
3 xing zhen hu
2 riryoku field/magic drain

Easy matchups; Weevil burn, Naturia, Mako hammershark, dinosaur kingdom decks/decks that focus on normal monsters, venus-red lotus

Moderate matchups: Toons and ice barrier-> depends if you tech in 2+ magic drain, When I did I won 5/6 times against toons, fiend/necrofear decks; still got to lose

Hard matchups: basically Red-eyes zombie and any other 2400+ beater decks without beatdown skill

Hey man, nice deck. One question though, isn't the deck much more prone to brick when you use two Gaias in this deck? What if you end up with two on hand?

My dude just said Ultimate Providence and "best" in the same sentence
what deck takes skill to use
New name of the skill will be Balant.
Except that it won't benefit from his ATK copying effect so it becomes a 2800 beatstick. And...
