This pack is the first time Duel Links has introduced support to the very unique "Lvl" archtype. Along with this we also get Silent Magician Lvl8 one of the most powerful monster in Yugi's deck during the original series. This pack also provides excellent draw and search cards probably to support the new Exodia skill.
Who should buy this pack
Buy this pack if you want to make a deck around Lvl monsters. This pack also provides support to spell counter decks and WATER decks. In terms of versatility this pack does have has some cards that can be splashed on to any deck, Unified Front can act as sort of an attack boost and/or defense card similar to Rising Energy, Emergency Provisions provides quick heals and can be chained with your spell/trap cards. Draw and search power is also very prominent in this pack, which might be useful in farming decks and Exodia decks.

So you just use 3 copies of level 8 to show other you can afford it? Lol I have 3 copy of wod, draining shield, pheonix and didn't even use it. I also have 3 copy of gozuki but I didn't play rez because I had other better deck. Wait, am I bragging? K bye
dont go for this deck its a tier 2-3 and youre goin to be stuck in platinum or max: legendary with some luck and good other magican cards. ive never seen a person in legendary use this deck. its fun in gold.
I been using Silent Magician LV 8 and Mirage Dragon. A pretty good decent combo. They can't activate trap cards and use it on Silent Magician and can't use any spell cards either. So its a good balance.
That's correct. Everyone knows this.
they use the same setup for horus as well.
btw Sgt Electro is another alternative to mirage dragon. I personally prefer it too, but obviously not many may have multiple copies of electro.
Is there any good decks to make from this pack? Tryed to make a silent magician deck but I can't seem to make it consistent. One or 2 cards might make it into the meta but overall it's not a game changer
I recommend to remove the Maiden - 2 and -1 tribute to the doomed. I would add +3 Mirage Dragon. I would replace the Eliminating the League with Mirror Wall or the new trap card (like Mirror wall). 2 Ultim. Providences are good. You can potentially negate Hane Hane, the other bird thingie that does the same thing and Four-Star (since all of your monsters are effect monsters). 2 Spheres are good.
Love Ultimate Insect, can't way to take him to KOG. Don't know why people complain about this box, can see 3 or more deck ideas to mess around with.
Shame I can only afford half the box at the moment.
You did ask why people complained about this pack. I just answered it: no real staples like SRH and the packs is overall sucks which won't get you any higher than plats without tons of effort and luck.
You can like and buy any packs you want, its your choice. Just be realistic about it, don't complain yourself when its cards get powercreep'd quickly and don't force other to follow your favoritism
I'm actually talking about cards like spear dragon, ultimate insect, and ATK boosting fields. This pack's R cards is actually not too shabby, but reseting just to get multiple UR/SR(which is not really good) is a waste of gems imo
Level 8 is useful against econ but not windstorm and can beat the hell out of red eyes and phoenix decks. Except toons and naturia. Tried adding koribohs to somehow survive against toons and trap jammer to negate wind still great
