Announced on Jan 19th, the event will start on the 24th and will last for a little less than two weeks. Players can choose from Yami Yugi, Joey, and Kaiba as their duel partner to progress through the Tag Dueling Tournament. Participate in the event to obtain Tag Coins for a lottery.
Tag Duel Rules
A person from a team will be chosen to go first. Afterwards, it will alternate to your opponent, then back to the teammate of the first team. An official rule of the tag duel tcg states that the first duelist who can make an attack is the duelist who goes fourth.
Cards in the deck
Certain rules can vary during this event, but standard dueling rules will still apply. This will mean that both players cannot bring more copies of cards that are limited than allowed, but you can bring 3 of the same card in each player's deck that are not limited, for a total of 6.
You will be sharing 6,000 life points with your tag partner.
You can use if you partner's cards if they are on the following places:
You and your partner will have seperate decks, extra decks, and hand cards. You won't be able to look at your partner's hand cards.
I battled the Yugi team like 6 or 7 times, and lost every single time. All using decks especially made to beat them. The event is ending and I won’t have beaten it. Why did they make that team so absurdly cheap and unfair.
I dunno why, but my response, as well as all the other helpful comments, just disappeared. Anyway, here again, the deck I used to try to beat them, which failed every single time. Pulling a Silent Magician lv 8 out of their ass was just too much. I didn't want to "farm" them, I just wanted to beat them a single time, to complete the event. I don't have Glad Beasts/CA, I just wanted to beat the AI.
I really hope Tag Duels becomes a thing for PvP. It would be cool to even be randomly partnered with people in that arena. I really thought this was a fascinating idea and hope it comes back permanently inside the PvP.
Here's a deck to farm tag duels in Master level. You can easily get 8000+ D.A against any opponent. Tried for about 30+ duels and only lost some due bulshits I did by myself :D
1. Play, as soon as possible, Temple of the Mind's Eye and Backup Squad. The opponents won't attack you. Also, this combo makes Kaiba less offensive, helping to hold the duel. If BS is not in your initial hand, use TOME, which can be get more easily, with Pathfinder's effect, to hold 2 attacks and use Destiny Draw to pick BS. Play 1x Solemn Wishes too, so you will start your LP increasing.
2. Hold the duel and draw until you get Ra, 1x Disciple or 1x CC, 1x Double Summon (2x in the finals against Yugis) and another TOME (not needed if Kaiba's Twister is set on the field). Also, make sure you have enough LP to make Ra's attack strong enough for a victory in a single attack.
3. Take out TOME from the field (by setting another TOME or using Twister), play DS, summon Disciple/CC with tokens, summon Ra and activate the effect of exchaning your LP by its ATK and DEF. attack with his large attack to win with LP on a Brink (3000 DA) and 5000+ damage (2000 to 3000 DA). Other bonus will make you reach 8000 DA, the max. conversible in coins.
Ps. This deck works well agains Para and Dox master challeng too.
Ps2. The Yamis (Marik and Bakura, in semi finals) are the hardest opponent to this deck due Marik's skill and Nightmare wheel. For them, I suggest to make a similar deck adding 1x Anti-Magic Arrow (to block NW) and cards to empty your graveyard (to keep your LP high). Hold the duel until Mariks effect make their LP low enough to be defeated by Ra's attack, even if it doesn't get much high (didn't try it)
Indeed D.D has this factor, but remember that Kaiba also helps on this setting ECon and Negate Attack. The damage you took you can use to draw SW. As I said, this deck isn't 100% efficient. But I've been winning with 8000+ D.A in about 90% of my duels
Thank you for the deck!
While I had only ~70% or so WR, it was because of Kaiba(blocking third slot or doing setdraw to get my backrow killed vs. Mai) and lacking 2 summon/wishes/BS, it was good! Sad, that the backrow was only 3 slots...
