Is there any recipe for all female monster deck style with main as dark magician girl or silent magician?
<< Anonymous(NEWBIE)
Anonymous 18days ago Reply
Magician girls (the original dark magician girl is the useless card of the bunch)

3x berry magician, 3x chocolate magician, 2x apple magician, 3x silent magician (the one without lv in the name), 1x silent magician lv. 8

The rest can be traps and spells

If you want you can use Dark Magician the dragon knight in your extra deck by adding 3 eye of timaeus + dark magician girl

Silent magician fits perfectly in a fortune lady deck, check the deck in this same page, you would just have to replace some traps

Magician Girl is your go-to deck. Fortune Ladies and/or Fortune Fairies do also work with Silent Magician.

Technically, you could even build an Amazoness or Harpy deck and throw in a random Dark Magician Girl. I wouldn't recommend it but it's certainly possible.

guys i really need help, i dont get why i suddenly cannot use any of my noble knights effect in the first turn, along with merlin. What is the meaning of the balance skill 6 types?

new update:

Your starting hand will reflect the card balance of your deck. This Skill will not activate unless you have at least 6 of each type of card (Monster, Spell, and Trap) in your Deck. You cannot Special Summon or activate monster effects until the end of the Main Phase of your first turn.

TLDR: Say goodbye to Noble Knights. Play something else.

Hi, I’m a new player stuck in Platinum with my budget Steam Blackwing deck, and I’m looking for a f2p (I like the challenge!), fun to play deck that could win KoG without too much grind, and would stay relevant for a while. I’m thinking about upgrading Blackwings (it costs plenty of gems and losing to a single Karma Cut sucks, but I love the cards and playstyle), getting Triamids (the art is great and they say it’s very strategic, but l’m not sure about fiddly card effects), or getting Evil Eye (I love the flavour and the deck feels really reliable, with plenty of built-in redundancies). I’m also thinking about postponing the deck building to a season with cheaper meta (I’m too much of a hipster to play BEWD). Any advice?

There is no cheap meta in this game, as a f2p you'll never catch up with the meta, decks take like 8 months to complete and by the time you do so they had been already powercrept 3 or 4 times

Keep improving your current deck, don't fall for the trap of decks looking cheap just look closer at triamid you need 3 times 1 minibox + 1 different minibox = the cost can go up to 20k gems

i am a F2p too i get kog every season (day 10-29) i plays a new deck every season like that i never get bored, i have almost every single metadeck but with cheap cards (2* of everything)

i played since day 1 the game has been released, i can tell u this: u will never catch the meta if u try to invest all ur gems, that's why choose carfully ur cards and ur decks.
-my deck: aqua, desperado, BEWD,

Depends on what kind of deck you play. For rank 4 xyz I'd say abyss dweller, steelswarm roach and malevolent sin

I haven't play a deck capable of using rank 3 xyz so I have no idea which ones are good

Rank 4 : Abyss dweller, diamond dire wolf, no.70
Rank 3 : Wind up zenmaines, no.47, no.16

I am a completely F2P player -- what deck should I invest in?

I used to play shiranui but after the banlist the deck sucked so I started a new account to get gems for another deck.

If you pretend to keep being a f2p player then build a deck that is out of the radar: witchcraft, triamid, FL, lunalight, weather painter, valks, etc.

Definitely don't buy super heavy samurai, digital bug or aromage.

I'm running a Dark Magician deck, but I cant figure out good traps to run. I have Magician Nav, Drowning mirror force and Mirror wall, but am looking for 2 others. Any suggestions?
<< Anonymous(KCAce)

If you want Traps in particular, you might be interested in Black Illusion. It will protect your BMs from being destroyed in battle and from other card effects until the end of the turn.

Oh god no that trap is very bad, seriously there's a reason why no DM plays it.

Stick with the usual traps: floodgate, karma, canadia, etc.

Try to replace your battle traps for ones that can be activated at any point of your opponent's turn
