How to Play

1. Duel in a completely new way!

What is Special Duel ?

Special Duel are Ranked Duels with certain conditions and restrictions to the Skills and Decks that you can use. Your rank placement is registered differently from your regular Ranked Duels placement, although the rankings and number of wins required to be promoted, remain the same. For example, you still need to acquire 4 wins to rank up from Platinum 5 to Legendary 1, and 5 consecutive wins to rank up from Legendary 3 to King of Games. Example scenario, if you are King of Games currently in regular Ranked Duels, you can still collect rank placement rewards from Special Duels since you will be starting the climb from Rookie rank.

2. Duel in Special Duels at the PvP Arena!

This time, the special rule is "Draw on the First Turn!" which players that going first can draw on their first turn!

3. Aim for King of Games!

Dark Magician

GarouA Trick up the SleevesJuly 7

A comment from Garou:

  • The Deck revolves around the magician navigation magician.
  • Use the Magicians rod to pick up a magicians navigate or if you already have it in your hand, search for a thousand knifes to destroy an opponent's monster or dark magic attack to destroy their supports.
  • World legacy Helps rid your monsters of effects like tth, in addition to decreasing enemy monster attack.
  • You can use the second effect of the magician rod (sacrifice a Black magician in the field and return the Rod itself to the hand) so you guarantee a thousand knife or dark magician attack to get rid of some problematic card.
    It was reasonably easy to get into the king of games with this deck

A comment from Manuel:

Easy climb with it because many players just don't know how to win against Yubel. Dark Magician was the easiest matchup by far.

A comment from #Aster Event:

Just a boring red-eyes deck that I don't even enjoy using. I wanted to use masked heroes with Aster, but Konami ruined that for me. About the only thing I think is kinda cool here is how sphere kuriboh decided a couple games for me. And I like having amazoness queen in here.

Six Samurai

A comment from Lavan:

Notes: Since Jaden only need Elemental Hero Neos, I combine them with my six samurai and the result is not really bad, and not break starting hand. The hardest match I think is minor match, Six samurai

A comment from pharmacist:

I used this deck to reach KOG in special duels. Even with 4 additional useless cards the deck is consistent enough to have winning streak ( I won the last 11 games to reach KOG).

The 2 cosmic cyclone were MVP for most matches to deal with cards like DNA surgery and onslaught and final battle. I used Masked beast des gardius in 2 duels ( one of them I BMed my opponent with it).

This is not special duel but special p2w duel because most of the decks that people using is either Neos fusion and red eyes fusion

Dude, let´s face it. This has been basically a mini-Ranked with the same exact predominant meta decks and builds. The whole "Legendary" gimmick has been useful only for making some characters useless and letting ones with the less restrictions shine. Subterror Umbras, BEWD Kaibas, REBD Joeys, Neos Jadens... I´ll be actually surprised if someone made it to KoG using Mako.
just do nwith athe cra says
Wow I didn't expect six samurai can hit KoG because that's quite brick but I think I will play it too

Brick? SixSam?

Are we even on the same universe?
The Aster deck has basically been ruined by this event. I tried it out when I got to gold and have won a few times with it by some miracle, but more than anything one of the f-king plasmas is always in my starting hand or I draw it when I really need something else. I have tried to take advantage of it by adding cards to my deck that have a discard cost like destiny draw, and things like hallowed life barrier or dark core. But of course, THEN I don't get plasma when it is time to use those cards. And when plasma is stuck in your hand, you can't get celestial's effect going to draw more cards. Guess I'll just have to go back to my boring red-eyes deck that I am already very sick of using. Seriously, unless some divine power forces Konami against their will to add d-end dragoon to this game, I never want to see another plasma again. I swear, if they increase the level cap again and this thing is Aster's lv 50 reward, I will say some choice swear words to myself that are inappropriate for this site and punch a pillow a few times.
One of their best events.
EXTRA gems and you only need 3 wins to climb.

Is this game rigged or what?
I played Subterror deck in this event with 3 or 4 trash cards.
Despite of this, I easily reached the king of games, my hand was always playable.
Now I play in the usual mode with a full powered deck and probably lost 10 games in a row. How is that even possible.
Nerfed deck is more consistent than normal
I actually met some Mask Beast guys lol, those matches were really funny

Why play a meta deck, when you could just steal your opponents monsters with Masked Beast ftw?

I stole a lot. This is the funniest duel I've ever had.

The only thing that hurts Honda's deck is being forced to put Commander and Acrobat Monkey with at least 1 of the Barbarians... they don't work together, all the searching and support cards just barely miss Barbarian #1 for having 1550 atk and not being a normal monster.

Yeah, they are quite cool.
Im kog in usual pvp, but in this special duels im stuck in gold2
Jonouchi's so-called "Legend cards" are a bunch of Red Eyes support cards created much later that he never used... a tryhard deck full of them counts as "legend deck" for him yet my Jonouchi deck of Red Eyes, the older related cards he used like RE Metal Dragon and other classic monsters of his such as Garoozis, Time Wizard, Rocket Warrior, etc, doesn't. Why.
I reached the king of games and can not find an opponent anymore, is this normal?
