A comment from PurpleYeti:

Credit goes to SO BRUTAL's Jan 2019 KOG list. I switched out 2 Wall of Disruptions for 1 Floodgate Trap Hole and 1 Mirror Wall to better respond to Ancient Gears.

A comment from ShrngnMajra:
This deck is pretty budget as evidenced by the 2 jars of greed but they work great for deck thinning.

My skill is balance so you open up on recombination more often than not along w alien kid and a battle trap and anti-magic arrows. My go-to OTK stray is to get overlord on field along with a warrior and use anti magic arrows to push for game.

If that dosent work I get as many monsters into the GY as possible so i can get a 4200 max atk ananta on board and sit on it until i can push for game with either an empty field or anti magic arrows.

A comment from zzamaro:

The skill of the Holy guard is crucial to make this deck work. You spam attacks and banish all of your opponent's monsters with Onslaught and not worry about a thing about cards like WoD or monster with higher ATK-DEF since you will not lose any LP which is a major weakness for Amazoness when I used the skill Endless Traphole with Odion (so I could recycle Onslaught). Heirloom is another powerful card that I used if my Onslaught was removed.

  • I always left Queen on Defense position to protect her from threats like the Drowning Mirror Force unless the back row was empty.

  • Straight Flush: Many of my opponents set 2 cards but would use the last zone when activating a card from hand and I ended using this car a lot. However, when I saw my opponent setting only 1 car, then I either used this card as a bluff or used it as discard cost for Princess. If you don't like this card, then it can be replaced with a 2nd Heirloom or Cyclone.

  • Unfortunately, while I was able to beat AGs a few times with this deck, a strong hand and luck are needed. Onslaught and Heirloom were the keys to beat AGs.

A comment from Jasper:
My deck is an Amazoness/control deck, mainly amazoness. Onslaught is to get rid of monsters with nasty effects, but main goal is to crash into reactor dragon/Maximus w/swordswoman, or swing in for direct attack and negate the drowning/widespread/etc with a united front— the mvp of the deck. Though situational, this deck shines against decks with beat sticks like ancient gears, blue eyes, Koaki Meiru, and decks that rely on monsters more than backrow.

Ancient Gear

A comment from Schwarzen:
Hey, reached maxed level with this deck. The deck was Ancient Gear and I found that Breaker the Magical Warrior and Solemn Scolding came in really clutch. Otherwise, it is a standard Ancient Gear deck.

A comment from Choppa200:
Ultimate Ancient Gear Soldier Claps. Very Good 90% Win Rate gets insta-scoops on summon can OTK winged kuriboh plays.+2 from Wyvern into Ancient Gearbox. Can beat grit. For mirror match e-con and sphere kuriboh are vital to otk your opponent with their own Ult.

Ancient gear. or atk over theirs with yours. Gearframe can be used effectively against Spellbook of fate, silent magician and sphere and ult. ancient gear can help get over lvl 8. Sphere and econ take maximus on summon can help stall you for a turn ive beaten koakis consecutively without taking damage with econ into ult.

ancient gear golem following. 90% draw into fusion consistency. Middle Age mechs gets over maximus with ancient gear golem and can get over def position ancient gear golem from mirror match if sp summoned in defense which forces your opponent to summon in attack also You can summon your ancient gear golem if you get over your opponents first ult. ancient gear golem and ancient gear golem.

A comment from sveitsi:

pretty much goal is to summon ultimate ancient gear golem first turn, if you are not going first. If u go first and summon ultimate golem opponent will just get rid of it with maximus or vampire vamp. If going first just set canadia/pulse and summon wyvern.

Only had 1 gearbox. Wyvern is one of the best cards in the deck because it's basically +2 with box. Fusion recovery plant can get a +1 with the gearbox in the end phase or add back golem for the next turn.
Middle age mechs came clutch few times if I bricked I could still summon a golem and win.

Good matchup against normal AG because they will have hard time outing your ultimate gear golem and after they out ultimate golem they will have to out the normal golem.

A comment from poogie:
In all seriousness, this deck thrives on the reactor matchup, you'll mostly win it since they cannot attack over UAGG. Be careful of econ taking, and don't be afraid to tth your UAGG if it does happen.

A comment from MetalEtemon:

Note: Most fun & interactive deck I have ever played. The duels usally end on Turn 2. Got from Stage 1 to 20 with almost no losses. The only way this deck loses, is if you get OTKed first. Thats why adding backrow, makes this deck twice as strong then the Gearbox, Gearframe Combo. No matter which meta we are in, Canada/Floodgate still just win games on their own. Activate Pulse Mines BEFORE Sandman is summoned.

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.

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.
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?

But why are they so rude? It is either "gg you suck" or "meta slave" type comments.

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.

"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

Because it is my ❤ favorite deck. That is all I can tell you.
Now in stage 2 only AG and Koaki.. Not fun anymore.
1 win and 1 lose. Tutte le porcoddio di volte. Dio bastardo porca madonna. Konami di merda non sapete fare un cazzo nella vostra vita se non mettere degli script del genere
do you guys think we will get leaks about the new box before the 17th when the kc cup ends
I have to admit this kc cup was a b**ch of an event for me with AG running wild but still managed to reach dl lvl max with my trusty vamps

I don’t see your deck posted??
I hope the Skill lottery will somehow give more characters access to Balance, LP Boost Alpha, and...
They'll have to do quite a big revamp on this card's effect, bigger than what they did ...
