A comment from Seth:

Skill Bandit is essential. Against Yubel the Forbidden Chalice should be used in the Damage Step to prevent the response.

A comment from Daedric8:
Very surprising and powerful deck with Aquactress monsters. You can make it even stronger with more Wetlands and paleozoic canadia. Galaxy cyclone is great as we can send our own aquarium continuous spell card to the graveyard to summon aquactress back to field! The same is true for parallel twister.

A comment from Trust•Freecs:

This deck must struggling so hard againts the current meta decks. I can't easily win if I get less back row on my opening hand.

Floodgate, canadia and econ are the best backrow cards in a lot of conditions.

Armades can attack safely, but he can't defeat high ATK/DEF of the opponent's monsters (AG, maximus, BEWD, Cosmo B. etc.), That's why I put junk berserker to deal with high level monsters.

A comment from 沙穀栗子:

Always summon Spellbook Magician first to bait Canadia/Floodgate. If you saw your opponent "hesitate", then it's probably not safe to make special summons before you do something about their back row!

  • vs Ancient Gear: easy match with some luck - get rid of Ancient Gear Castle, then opponent's non-fusion monsters are capped at 3k ATK

  • vs Ko'aki Meiru: best bet is to get Silent Waifu on the field... can block Diamond Core and stay safe from Maximus effect

  • vs Vampires: also best to bring out Silent Waifu... keep her ATK at 2000 or under. Priority is usually blocking/destroying Vampire Domain to stop the opponent from doing second summon. Keep in mind your friend Keith can and will steal your one and only Set card you were counting on to save your behind, so always prepare for this situation

A comment from Gaia Dragon:
Ancient Gear won't be able to pass through Blue-Eyes White Dragon unless they are playing AG with Beatdown skill, that's why I often banish Ancient Gear Castle if they do not have any Spell/Traps set. I got my 3rd copy of Dragon Spirt of White with an SR dream ticket.

A comment from Danyz:
Body: Against Ancient gear use cosmic ciclone or spirit white dragon to banish their spell field, you can do some nice otk with anki or cosmo brain effect on Destiny hero decider to summon a Blue Eyes, at the end phase, u will get back ur decider to the hand. Hard time with koaki meiru decks, easy vs AG.

A comment from Jürgen:
It wasn’t that easy against all that AG stuff. But some how I managed to climb all the way up to DL max. Bujin is a great Deck and a great percentage of my opponent didn’t know how to play against it.

A comment from lordodin97:

Deck notes: this is the deck I used to climb the KC cup ladder to max. The spells and traps have been selected to play around ancient gears with the ability to activate them during the beginning of their battle phase to stop any attacks that may kill you. Not many people seem to play around crane as a hand trap and often gets you out of a tight squeeze against blue eyes

Things have become hard for bb with ag on the run. But cosmic cyclone is here to save the day. Go for paladin and stardust asap. Stardust is finally showing how good of a card he can be.

NazarenoReinforcementFeb 12

A comment from Nazareno:
I played here a variant of the deck that used Wind-Up Rabbit & Evilswarm Thunderbird as star cards in its own deck in TCG. Winged Rhynos, certainly, is the lost brother of them, because they burn the resources of the opponent in an attempt to finish him, and without much success, since he tends to easily avoid Drowning Mirror Force or Wall of Disruption, Canadia or Floodgate . And if we add a trap, which can cause great lethal damage, and can trigger the effect of Winged Rhynos ... It comes to a very joint work, and to the point of turning this trap, Spikeshield with Chain, into an Interdimensional Matter Transporter 2.0.

Although, without detracting from the previous letters, the MvP have been the ECon & Gravity Lash, an extremely underestimated card, since it can grant matches by converting the attack of Reactor or Maximus and Blue-Eyes into 0, and being a quickplay spell is superior, by far, to Mirror Wall or Wall of Disruption, since it does not depend on any monster to work, just as it is a chainable card, either before the previous attack of a Reactor, or to the destructive effect of Maximus. And with ECon, it's the best you can steal from the top of the deck.

To top it off, since it is very difficult to eliminate, an Obnoxious Celtic Guard with Reinforcements go hand in hand to stall, if necessary, in a solid defense that together with the Spikeshield with Chain make it immortal in battle.

Anyway, I had fun despite facing only Ancient Gears, Koa'ki Meirus, and 3 Buster Blader from ND 17 to ND 20. Greetings.

A comment from leuculeo:
Mirror wall and floodgate always provide a good protection, even against ancient gear deck. The leng ling & cyberdark edge combo, lava golem and parasite infestation can help you to finish the opponent quickly

A comment from CooprTrooprz:

Obelisk didn’t do much for me, 9/10 times was a brick. Switched to D-Hero Plasma since he can be special summoned and he stole me quite a few games, most notably my MAX lvl match vs Masked Heroes when Plasma snatch stole Anki for game.

lucarioBring It!Feb 18

A comment from lucario:
How my deck works: the main goal is to get destiny hero plasma out as quickly as possible to take control of your opponents monster and the fur hires help make that possible the rest is just standard backrow canadia for ancient gears and koaki and cosmic cyclone for backrow removal

It already ended, they are deciding the winners.

We have finally reached the true OTK coin flip era. Make sure to spend a few thousand dollars for three Canadias and three Floodgates if you survive going first.

Thank you for playing Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links.

I tried this deck on level max kc Cup.
A meme deck at best but sometimes it shines.
-5/10 win rate, loses to heavy backrow decks and vampires, usually wins against AGs, 50%-50% against koaki, hallowed life barrier and Fabled Dianaria are cluch against Koa'ki, heros and sometimes vampires.
-it rarely bricks but even so with Grit and hallowed life barrier you can stall.
-dark core and offerings are replaceable with snipe hunter but not necessarily for better.
-from my experience dark world dealing is the least useful card, it just allows you to swarm the field but the problem is non of the synchro monsters (except ASW and gigantic castle) can deal with big monsters so I prefere econ, dark core and offering.
-Hollowed life barrier is the main engine, free summon + full turn protection from damage and battle destruction.
-Econ is replaceable with Trunade but in this OTK meta Econ is very useful.
-replace ASW with Armades

Koa’ki Meiru OTK makes this meta beyond stale. 7/10 times it’s against the same stale deck. Diamond Core needs to be Limited. No deck should be THAT consistent. I guess Konami wanted to squeeze some money out of Main Box 17 for this KC Cup. Oh well, I had a lot of fun making it to stage 2 with Plasma Fur Hire.
DLv. Max max with this "NO BOX RESET" Koa'ki deck. I only have two Urknights and Diamond Cores.

Other decks I used, Lava Assailant (stall) for starting dv up to 16, and Balance Noble Knights for dv 16-18. The rest, Koa'ki. Somehow NK and Koa'ki plays similar (use cards that will adapt to the current situation.)

Two losses from dv 19-20
1. Anki that used Cyclones for my traps on first turn and went for OTK.
2. Silent Spellbook that banished my DMF turn after turn. I nearly won, opponent has 100 lp left.

Drowning MFs were the MVP tho.

I think everyone knows who this spammer is and what he's doing in this site. I wonder if he already reached 1st stage max or the dude's too busy making internet memes and anti-p2w campaign in this site. Hmmmm,

"No one asked you to post your deck" So what? I don't need anyone's permission. I'll post what I want. "Tryhard" lol This deck is not even tier 2. Too much salt and salt is already stupid. Maybe I should get my old unga bunga dragon pierce/burn deck with peak performance out for stage 2. XD

This page is sad. I see: 1. Get yelled at if you lose or complain about meta. 2. Get yelled at if you win and don't complain about meta. What do people want?

People like to think they are better by bashing other players and most of them don't really think about what they mean. So they are just trying to make you mad.

I guess so. I just wish that everybody could get along. When someone feels frustrated with duels it is better to take a break instead of taking it out on other players.
