Triamid: deck recipe

Table of contents


The general strategy of Triamid Decks is to cycle through their Field Spells and monsters to activate multiple effects. All the monsters have effects that let you replace your current Triamid Field Spell with another one from your deck. The Field Spells in-turn are able to search, retrieve, and Special Summon Triamid monsters.

How to Use

Triamid Monsters

Triamid monsters let you cycle your Triamid Field Spells during your opponent's turn. You can use this to bring out Triamid Kingolem during battle to gain an attack boost. This also lets you trigger the effects of Triamid Field Spells when they are sent to the graveyard.

Triamid Master makes your aggressive plays by destroying your opponent's set cards. At the cost of Triamid cards, this effect can also help trigger the effects of your Triamid Field Spells. Additionally, he has the highest attack of the available Triamid monsters so you will need him to beat over enemy monsters.

Triamid Hunter lets you swarm the field with Triamid monsters for your setup. This swarming can be used as the cost for Triamid Master's first effect in case you don't want to get rid of your Field Spell.

Triamid Dancer recovers Triamid cards back to your deck while giving your monsters an attack and defense boost.

Triamid Field Spell

Triamid Field Spells' primary effects are useful at different phases of the duel after that they will be switched out by another Triamid Field Spell. Triamid Cruiser is good during your Main Phase to dig through your deck. Triamid Kingolem is good during your Battle Phase and for most of the Duel, because of it's attack boost and Spell/Trap protection during battle. Triamid Fortress is brought out to protect your monsters from effect destruction.

Their secondary effects allow you to gain advantage when they are sent to the graveyard. Triamid Cruiser and Triamid Fortress get a monster from your deck and graveyard respectively. Triamid Kingolem lets you Special Summon a Triamid monster from your hand for more field presence.

Triamid Pulse

Triamid Pulse is a good compliment to all the cycling Triamid Decks do. Triamid cards you do not retrieve with Triamid Dancer you can banish to activate one of Triamid Pulse's powerful effects. The first effect is a removal for face-up cards Triamid Master cannot target. The second effect is a revival. The third effect recovers your Triamid Field Spells and lets you gain resources.

The only other card that the Triamid archetype is missing in DL is Sphinx. Adding Sphinx now would make this Tier 0.

Triamids are actually very good. Unfortuantely, you need to be smart to see it. So if you do not have the capacity to use Triamids, then buy Desperado or AG, you will definitely reach Plat or maybe even Legend someday.

So this deck is surprisingly fun to play. It is also not a no-brainer otk-deck like desperados or red-eyes, but more of a control-deck with various interruptions and good plus-effects. If you can survive the opponents first round of attack, you usually with. What is also recomended is a 30-card-Gras-deck with blockdragon and blockgolem. Grass usually means instant-win since you most likely mill a block dragon or can insanley plus from blockgolem. All in all one of the most interesting decks to play

I disagree with the grass since it worsens your deck if you don't draw it and you may mill all the fieldspells leaving you without the option to cycle them during the opponents turn and thus removing one of the best parts of this deck. And block-dragon does not synergies well since you banish the monsters you need for your removal trap.

Hello GameA, could you please make a posting of a Balance version also?

I'd like a breakdown of which composition is best too. 7/7/7 for a consistent 1-of-each-card-type everytime or does 7/8/7 have the same effect?

I'd also like to recommend testing Asla Piscu and Ccapac. Notably, Piscu's effect can be triggered by rotating field spells and maybe we could add a retrieval system.

Please and Thank you.

Adding Boss monsters on a Balance version does bring the possibility of drawing the Boss monster on your starting hand. This was the same issue with Balance Masked Heroes before.
Who says this deck is not tier 1?
Dumb players who never watched a single tournament I believe.

I think such term stands for non sociable individuals. Triamid Dancer looks like a highly extrovert person lol, same goes for the rest of Triamids.

Quite a big brain deck, people with low iQ should avoid it to all costs.

You won't get any win with it if you are dumb.

Trash deck, not sure why it’s tier 1. I play 6Sam skills, and I always rack this deck.

You comment makes no sense, the op said they play 6Sams, which is way more expensive. But they’re right, Triamid is trash.

Balance is the best skill for Triamid, because it gives you huge advantage against opponent with bad starting hand. But instead of running 7-7-6 (monster-spell-trap) I really recommend you to run 8-8-7 . Triamid Dancer is underrated, you should run 3 of it because it helps you in the late game. 3 Cruiser + 3 Kingolem + 2 Fortress is the most optimal composition for spells

Triamid isn't tier 1. It's tier 2 at best. Not because it needs brain to play, but because many Legend players already know how to use Cosmic Cyclone correctly against Triamid players, not to mention Shi En is one of Triamid's hardest enemy

Turn 1 Shi En with backrow is hard matchup for any deck, not just Triamid. Also Triamid is actually easier to learn compared to Crystron and Vendread

Triamid is T3 at last
Help me please!! I can't defeat this deck! It will swarm 3 monsters and the field spell with about fifty billion effects on the first turn to stop everything I have and it doesn't matter if I get rid of the field spell either because everything just keeps coming back to counter everything I do and I always have the worst deck for it when I am matched up against and I just keep dying and this is so annoying and takes forever to duel and HEELLP!!!

There are a couple decks where swordswoman really helped pull the win more against like metaphys and AG. But it was still struggling. I don't think I even saw king of game decks for them on duel links meta anymore.

Destroy/banish their field spell during their end phase. or canadia em
Palaezoic Canadian works so well with this deck. You should be putting 3 dancers in, it is easy to get 3 monster with 3k+ attack on the field
