A comment from Daoko:

The deck focuses on Dragunity's ability to OTK using many of its available 2 card OTK combos with Mountain Field Spell:

  • Dragunity Militum + Aklys
  • Dragunity Militum + Divine Lance
  • Dragunity Dux + Divine Lance

Often times, the combo not only sets you up with a 4200 ATK Vajrayana but also allows you to destroy a card on the field with you use Vajrayana effect on Aklys. The rest of the deck focuses heavily on backrow removal with to ensure your OTK goes through.

Double Cyclone is MVP in the deck as Mountain can offer as additional target for cyclone's effect and if played properly, double cyclone can result in plus plays with other removal cards such as Cosmic Cyclone, Treacherous Trap Hole, and Aklys. I am only playing 1 Card of Consonance as I found that any more causes the deck to brick more often.

Extra deck is pretty standard with 2x Vajrayana, 1x Gae Dearg, 1x Stardust. The last slot is flexible. I had Black-winged dragon in there because I hate playing against burn, but Gae Buld works as a good replacement that allows the deck to perform better mid-late game.

Overall this was an extremely fun deck to play as there is nothing more satisfying than you getting through 2 set backrow and 1 monster and still manage to pull off the OTK. I have been testing another variant of the deck that runs Grass is Greener to more value to Dragunity Dux by setting up the grave.

A comment from Waldtier:
The deck has the same logic as the standard fur hire before the ban, but uses the big cattle drive to get back row support using the spamming fur hire effects and the amount of beast and beast warrior.

With these I usually get a +2. Alector helps to get a +3 against heroes, geargia and other monotype decks. He also helps to end effects of Cosmo Brain and Equip Cards.The rest is fur hire as usual

A comment from Heartfilia:
I run 2 Geargiaccelarator instead of Geargiarsenal, since i just have 2 Ties. so i can swarm the field easily to get combo with another Geargia.

A comment from Zane:

  • Geargias is really strong in this new meta where furhire wiz is no longer meta and treacherous being nerf.
  • Halfshut spell is your surpirse factor as most people expect SRH in geargias and they will attack for facedown monster.

A comment from Luxun:
Used many decks incluindo silent magician, buster blader and vamp, but hero seems to be the best deck at the moment due to decider when against blue eyes and due do the trap cards when against vamp

A comment from 乃木坂誰でも大好き:
TBH this is a very luck-based deck but it does involve a little bit of skill in it. This deck pretty much guarantee you a win as long as you draw the Ties with either Chalice, or Canadian, pulse mines or absorbing life regardless of going first or second. But if you go second, you need to make decisions like whether do you go all in or keep the monster face down until you draw the absorbing light.

Having been trying other decks like D hero, UA, spellbook. This is the most efficient deck in comparison to all other decks i have played. Using balance almost guarantee a free win, so it actually has a higher win ratio compared to other skill-based decks like spellbook. You just need to play more so that you gain a positive win rate as you will eventually gain more wins than loses.

A trick is that you need to find the best time to this play, this deck worked best for me in certain time when there is less spellbook (the only counter to geargia) and swap deck when necessary.

Dear Player,

We'd like to inform you that we are using special algorithm to find out which card(s) you want the most, then place it at the bottom of the pack. We are sorry for this convenience and we hope this clears the confusion.

To create an even better experience for our players, we will continue to add new content and work out balancing issues.

Cancer Cup take 4.

Spellbooks need to have fate put to 1 and Silent Magician needs to go. A monster that can float into a 3500 ATK monster is retarded.

Also fed up of seeing Arkana use Blue-Eyes and all the sodding HERO monsters.

This game has lost its appeal and descended very quickly into OTK or die.

I would say vampire right now, but it is very likely that sam skull/grace will be nerfed in the future which makes vampire kinda weaker. If you are f2p then my advice is to always save your gems for the NEXT meta, not the current one.

if you desperately need a top tier deck, just go for the BEWD deck... guess it's the cheapest deck in the top tier right now... or maybe bujin if you don't wanna spend some dollar to a kids game.

Unbelievable. 50 Victories in one day. 120 overall. Ancient Gear deck I’m using and it’s going smoothly. I’m done. Got up to LV 19. Ended up downgrading to LV 17.

Made it to level 20 using a Blue Eyes Cosmo Brain deck.

Arkarna and Trick up the Sleeve were used.

Hopefully they post my submission to show you all the deck. I decided that 20 cards just didn’t provide enough defence against OTK. Added two Sphere K, which proved to be the difference between hanging around 18/19 and making it to level 20.

I actually think the game is a lot better right now, adding amazoness onslaught to banlist was a nice idea. Plenty of decks became playable again. I'm seeing a lot of Gemini Dark Valkyria in this KC cup and also in Ranked duel.s.

For all of you who thought that just 2 copies of onslaught made the game too hard, try imagining amazoness with 3 amazoness archer (the monster card), an un-semi-limited/limited baby tiger, and maybe the village.

wonder how consistent they actually are but it's refreshing to see something that's not vampires, masked heroes and amazoness

this deck needs Legionnaire to make it truly competitive or Ravine
Lol, you are the one that got it reversed. XYZ is the monster and xyz is the summoning mechanic.
