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.

Until the end of the opponent's next turn, neither player can banish cards from the Graveyard or Special Summon monsters from the Graveyard. This skill can only be used once per Duel.

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.

I don't understand how this is an easy deck to build don't you have to clear out the box 3 times, that's 15k gems, right?

Triamid Sphinx is the last piece we need for this deck to be a real pain in the ass. I hope Konami will add it soon.

Nice joke thanks. I'm finally reach KoG today. Thankfully I only face one stall deck today but I slap em with six sams. This month KoG is really hard for me cause Konami add rank for legend but still don't remove the stupid 5 consequentive wins to rank up so I have to use triamid,six sams and metaphys to reach it
I reached king of games with Triamid deck

This Deck is Awesome
You know what guys? this deck has been TOPPING tournaments since it was released. It's amazing, quite reliable and brainy.

I see it as quite a solid archetype that will remain as competitive for a long time.

This deck looks insanely defensive, but cool at the same time.

It's great at defense, but you'd be surpised at how good its offensive plays are. Kingolem gives both a 500 ATK boost AND spell/trap protection in battle, and on top of that dancer could potentially increase all your monsters' ATK by 500 each turn if you play it right. Once got a dancer from 600 ATK up to 5100 and killed a five-god dragon. Good times.

Nothing in this game is big brain, it's designed for children ffs people need to stop thinking that being good at this game requires any kind of intelligence.

Triamid isn't that "big brain", yes, but saying that there's nothing that's "big brain" in Yugioh is not correct either.

If you say that, you never saw full power PePe deck's opening move. It took around 20 steps from start to finish, just for the turn 1 move.
I'm not going to lie, facing this deck ticks me off

I'm currently using this deck and its also honestly like a meme thing too if you place 2 dancers and a master and you can build up to 17500 on a direct attack or I tried 2 accounts and you can build up forever.

I milled a blue-eyes player when I only had 4 cards left in my deck and they had 10, just by recycling field spells lol
...And the award for "least fun deck to duel against" goes to Triamids!

You must not have played against Lava Golem/massivemorph stall then lol

Every time a new archetype comes out that's good people say this. It's getting old. It's not the "least fun" just because you keep losing to it lol
triamids arent good right now. they need more support

I dunno about that. Staple cards like TTH, DM, Clash, Canadia, WoD, make Triamids very competitive.

Triamids are pretty good and are cost effective even for the beginner. See the DLM strategy guide for a more in depth explanation

Yeah, they're not good at all, they're just topping tournaments often...

I've been using them in KC with very few issues. Only one loss so far and that was because of a stupid mistake I made. The deck itself has very few problems. Covers defense and offense, recovery, destruction of set and face up cards, and a consistent search engine. It's just got kind of a slow playstyle.
