In the upper right hand coner when you have selected the box there is a red button that says reset box. Click that and all the cards in the box will restock.

I'm having a decent winrate using a fire deck with emperor's and flame rulers + stall. Twister is useful for removing umi, as well as emperor's ability.

Can someone help me with my Daedalus Deck? Only have 2.
Any Improvements? :/

First I think your deck is to large. You want to get it down to 20 cards. Then you need to decide if you want to play a deck that is safer or tries to OTK as fast as it can. I, for the most part, run the later and here is my list. Just got KOG this morning with it.

Hi, I'm in a bit of a pickle as I don't know what to do right now. I'm trying to build this deck and I'm at the point were I should consider resetting my first box (with 30 packs left). The only thing I'm missing are Yomi ship and Stray Lambs. I'm seeing that alot of the people in the comments are running 3 copies of Daedalus whick means that if I reset my box now I can probably scramble up 2 copies of Yomi ship in the next two boxes. But is 3 Daedalus optimal? Cause if it's not, I should continue until I open atleast Yomi ship and then I'll reset to get everything out of the second bow and by then my deck should be complete. So I guess my questions are; Are 3 Daedalus the thing? Is there any other reason to reset the box two times?

Thanks for your comment, 'll keep that in mind.

I have three daedalus, but when trying different deck format, i realise 2 daedalus set up got alot better win to lost ratio than 3 daedalus, hope that help

Replace balloons and tribute for metalmorph amd windstorm
6ixthSense 4days ago
Well you only have one trap card and it's super situational so its not really that good. I would consider replacing Suijin, Wonder Balloons, and Blast for a Tribute with cards like Mirror Wall, Michizure, Windstorm of Etaqua, Metalmorph, or Trap Jammer.

How can you get two copies of Daedalus? From the pack? I thought it's possible to only have one from the pack and it's even written? Help
anoymous 4days ago
Sorry, I know the answer already. For those who at first don't know this thing; you have to reset box, lmao

How can i improve my deck? I dont have mirror wall and kuriboh
Yami Kira 4days ago
Reset the box and try to get another Deadalus, put another big wave small wave. Take out 1 suijin and your last card. Just my opinion but I dont think its good to use deadalus and suijin because with deadalus you just use his effect and keep attacking while you use suijin defensively
anoymous 6days ago
Why no interdimensional matter transporter?
anoymous 4days ago
Because with this deck you just summon something and use big wave small wave and summon deadalus then destroy everything and win. Why would you need this card?
Aaron 7days ago
Why no High Tide Gyojin?
anoymous 4days ago
I don't have three ultra rare sea horses so I use Gyojin, Sea horse is just that little bit stronger
anoymous 4days ago
Because Kaiser sea horse is stronger and Yomi ship/Unshaved angler/Needle sunfish have good effects

How can I make this deck better
anoymous 7days ago
You need another deadalus but if you don't have one add a suijin or 2. Then add another big wave small wave. Get rid of dispell and overwhelm. Replace them with maybe a mirror wall or piercing morray.
anoymous 7days ago
i would say the basic is so good but i would suggest few changes if u can add 1 more big wave 1 mirror force and one daedalus remove jammer remove 1 Suijin and remove despell if this deck for pvp u need to remove the shard of greed as well maybe add shellfish instead or moray it is up to you
anoymous 7days ago
That deck is pretty good. But these are suggestions for when you get the cards if you dont have them. * +1 or 2 Big wave for -1 despell (twister more flexible) then -1 shard( this is up to you, i dont think its needed) * +1 Daedalus for -1 Suijin * +1 or 2 mirror wall for -1 overwhelm then trap jammer (trap jammer isnt as usefull as in rex deck here because two daedalus can wipe the field anyways)
anoymous 8days ago
mirror wall makes everything better

Any point in running both Kuriboh and Windstorm? This is currently what I'm working with. I do like the idea of the kuriboh, yomi ships and needler sunfish. Seems like a good way to have various ways to play defensively enough to get a Daed.

Note: Don't have metal morph yet :(. Subbing in reinforcements based on comments I read about Dino Decks wrecking.
Javi 6days ago
Thanks for the response! Can definitely replace the Needler Sunfish. Fortunately, I have two Piercing Moray. I'll try that out and see how it works out.
anoymous 7days ago
Keep the windstorm and kuriboh, but you should replace the reinforcements with waterhazard, it can get you 2 monsters on your first turn + if you dont have BWSW. This is just a personal preference but I think you should replace needle sunfish with piercing morray if you use waterhazard correctly with it you can get a 2300 monster that does piercing damage to def monsters

So funny I see most of you say you've made it to kog. There are 9/10 of
You that back out so you Dnt lose your rank. Dnt mention kog when you never actually finish duels. And ps umi decks are easily beatable

Mainguy29 - you sound like a virgin nerd. who gives a shlt. Getting to K0G leggit and braggin about it are probably the biggest no lifes out there. And that's you my friend. haha.
anoymous 11days ago
i made it with the water deck... KOG ain't hard right now... how the hell do you back out and don't lose a rank anyway??

More traps less Daedalus.
Whitecross 10days ago
Noted,thank you.
anoymous 11days ago
get rid of water hazard, that card is only useful if you draw it first or second turn, based on your deck i would replace it with big wave small wave, and to be honest you don't need riryoku with this deck... when daedalus comes out there's only 4-5 cards that can counter it, you will actually never have the chance to use riryoku, i would replace it with some trap cards

just remove star boy add 1 unshaven angler mirror force( if u have) instead of Metalmorph or jammer or shellfish
anoymous 12days ago
I've reached kog with a daedalus, with far worse cards, I'd drop starboy for another unshaven angler. I wouldn't go with monster controller as u don't have a lot of normal monster aside from HTG.
anoymous 13days ago
I'd suggest trading in starfish thing for the 1 star macrotrema w/e for better 1turn ko's.
APX 13days ago
I'm not really familiar with the Umi deck. I reached KOG with the dino deck, but I do have a suggestion. I would put in a little more control cards. Maybe swap a gyojin with Sphere Kuriboh, swap magic jammer with something like Mirror Wall, Riryoku etc. You will get there :)
Ekelao98 14days ago
Absolutely beast deck. The dinosaur kingdom deck got nothing on this one (I use both):
anoymous 8days ago
@Takumi, Yeah, the inconsistent draw for this deck is why the Dinosaur deck has that slight higher rating. Consistent draw means higher consistent wins. The top ranked players use all 4 stars in tandem with 3 riryoku, mirror walls, and 1 Wind of Etaqua. That's mostly the core that you need to beat majority of decks out there.

What do moms have to do with this? Quit being an ass omg
anoymous 12days ago
What a bad mom. Saying to strangers that her kid is "not the smart" which means it must have been from an illegitimate affair that's why she chose to present her kid like this. Poor kid. Would have slapped my mom if she does this to me. Moms should be more empowering and encouraging their kids to be their best.

HAHAHA! Your son is so stupid indeed! Make sure he drink his milk first before letting him play on the phone or visiting this site! Tsk, what an irresponsible, insufferable mother you are! That's right, compensate for your son's stupidity, my goodness!
Takumi's Mom 13days ago
Sorry Ebola-san, my son is not that smart, ofc all deck is not guaranteed 100% win, but he still insisting me to buy many gems for this deck setup, so yeah he just dissappoited on it, so I hope you can understand his condition, he is just my cute lil 9 yo boy, I love him very much. Thank you
Ekelao98 13days ago
@Takumi The only bad thing about this deck is that it relies heavily on Daedalus and if he's somehow destroyed then you're probably screwed unless you manage to somehow summon the second one. You have to be careful of "Order to charge", it's a very annoying card and has the potential to completely ruin the duel for you.
Ekelao98 13days ago
@Takumi Not really, I always draw at least 1 low level monster but sometimes I have to wait until I get a Daedalus and that's kind of bad but I still manage to hold up with 3 Kaiser Sea Horse (1900 Atk), Yomi Ship and Needle Sunfish (thanks to their effects). Then, when you finally draw a Daedalus you just summon it and then you're free to use his effect to attack directly and deal insane damage.
Takumi 14days ago
Do you ever run into issue of drawing bad hands for this deck? Couple times I drew 8 cards that I could do nothing for 4 turns; e.g. 2 Daedalus, 2 Big Wave Small Wave, 1 Water Hazard, 1 Reinforcement, 1 Mirror Wall, 1 Umi. I got fed up with it that I made the ratio of the deck to be 16 monsters and 4 spell trap cards. However, that made my deck real basic.
Tips 15days ago
1. If you don't have Kaiser Sea Horse, High Tide Gyojin is as good replacement. The damage difference is only 50 (1900 to 1850, assuming you have Umi on the field)

2. Add reinforcements if you replaced Kaiser Sea Horse with Gyojin. Dino deck, which is very popular right now, would totally smash you on the opening hand if you're unlucky. If you didn't replace Kaiser with Gyojin, skip this step.

3. I'd rather have 3 Daedalus cards than 2. There are 20 cards in this deck, adding an additional Daedalus by removing one Needle Sunfish or Yomi Ship. This would increase your chances of drawing Daedalus by 5% (from 10% to 15%)

4. If, for some reason, you have a Kuriboh but not Windstorm, that would work too. I would prefer Windstorm though, it's like Kuriboh but more effective.

Maybe they can set up a rule where you can only use a maximum of 3 UR and 8 SR in a Deck.
Looks like there's finally a solution to farming Kaiba consistently AFTER the update!! I fou...
Good job at being consistent Kuriboh. 300 atk is awesome
Ok I'm gone shut my ancient ass up
