A comment from Yami Aster:

Amazoness has a little more saving grace now thanks to darklords and vendreads, which it can do quite well against. A few darklord players even surrendered to me as soon as I summoned the princess and set three cards. It is also great against red-eyes and sometimes six sams and blue-eyes. But overall, this was not easy.

How To Use:
1: Use Neos Fusion
2: Send Dawn Knight and Neos

And Dawn Knight gives you the Top Deck you want

A comment from Trevihno:

Patience is key. Very frustrating deck to play against. Knowing when to use which trap and effect are big. Lots of deck out victories!

A comment from IIINC:

No Banishment? No Problem. Darklord Ukoback makes one hell of a decent replacement for banishment. Sure, you want to search for a card to add to your hand. But, the next best thing is to search for a card to add to the graveyard.

Konami has definitely made the top-tier meta more inclusive of other archetypes. As a result, I couldn’t help but feel like I was playing a really long game of rock-paper-scissors here and there. Expect Cardians, Darklords, Spellbooks, and Desperados at level 18-19.

Darklord’s greatest strength is “setup.” This is why they are so consistency-driven compared to to most other decks that opt to use the last 1-3 slots of their deck on tech cards like Cosmic Cyclone, Treacherous Trap Hole, etc. If you aren’t into investing in a massive box like Valhalla Calling and possibly getting nothing in return, try out Ukobacks as your replacements. I’ll put up basic combos and setups on this link:

Happy hunting and see you all at Stage 2.

A comment from CocopopsOwnsMe:
The ladder climb with this deck was insanely easy, u threaten with direct attacks, Brave Neos and treacherous and if they destroy then you Desperado barrel dragon and pull the victory.

A comment from pharmacist:

I bought a copy of desperado structure deck just the day KC CUP has started and try to test how far 2 copies of desperado will take me. And yes this deck took me all the way to DL MAX.

Canadia and FG to shut prevent the activation of monsters effect.

Dimensional prison is good card in nearly every matchup ( especially neos, mirror, Vendread)
Cosmic cyclone is my favorite back row removal for the moment.

The cup of ace is the pseudo pot of greed (due to the skill) if you open with them early in the game.

All in all, it was easy to climb with handful losses ( most of them came to darkened).

A comment from zMut:

Note: "Fiend Comedian" is very useful to destroy some META Decks (Darklord, Subterror, CyberDark Neos Fusion, etc).

A comment from Skybullet07:

Standard Desperado deck, destroy DARK Machines to get more DARK Machines. Best usage of £8 in the game at the moment, super value for the power you get in return. Crushed pretty much everything I played against, got DLv. 20 in ~35 wins from DLv. 10. I only ever lost when I didn’t open or draw Desperado by the 2nd or 3rd turn. I would highly recommend this deck to anyone looking for an easy climb from a structure deck.

Neos is not even top tier.
People who complain about neos are mentally challenged.

Neos fusion is not a top tier card "anymore" because more powerful cards have been released in the mean time.

Used this deck to reach stage 2 but honestly couldn't get past legend to KOG,Using Azure eyes and gigacastle and other lvl 5,6,8 and 10 synchros incase of using econ for synchro. Any comments or suggestions to make it better are more than appreciated.

KONAMI; can you please limit this NEOS engine somehow? Y'all just replaced the Weevil 🔥 deck with something that's arguably worse

I got to stage 2 with this to beat darklords and vendreads almost every time.

I guess the DD monsters in your deck make that deck good because I used a similar one and could not past DL16. I removed some traps for World Clashes which really helped but it only helped me reach Dl18. No Swordswoman makes the deck hard to use. Paladin is just a beatstick.

Paladin is really only useful if you got 2 amazoness already and you special summon her for the otk. I thought about using another sage, but she doesn't get a chance to use her effect that much. I changed wod to power of the guardians. I also went from gold 1 to legend 2 with this, but it is so much slower without 3 princesses.

Easy Dlvl MAX with Yubel Nephthys.
Exactly 47 wins total from 7 to 20.
I used random decks until level 15, but when I switched to Yubel I went something like 19-4.
Lost two promotion games to busted Busted Blader openers (trap/spell/whelp combo) and one to Triamids.
The decks absolutely claps the weakened Six Sams, Vendreads, Ancient Gears, Desperado.
Darklords matchup is a coin flip, and Triamids matchup is an auto loss.
Ugh. This KC Cup has been a mixed bag for me. While it's nice seeing a whole bunch of decks and not just a main 3 archetypes, it's annoying having to see mostly Trap based Decks, MoD and Darklords every 5 seconds. Eh.. Still better than Six Samurais at full power. Come on.. Hit Dual Wield already.

Dual wield and or World Legacy Clash
Thank god this 🔥 event is nearing its end not fun at all some skills need to be nerfed one of Sartorious ones yet again. Also ban Treacherous already and either Limit or Semi Limit Clash waaaay to powerful.

I've been using aliens, its fun to use Mind control on AGG then using Super Strength to OTK
I got Dlv Max from Dlv 18 in a single go when I switched from a Red eyes deck to a Desperado deck. Yhe funny thing is that it was the most budget deck. Meaning one Desperado and one Brave neos haha Legacy clash and treacherous are very OP.

Thanks to everyone who bothered to explain their decks. It's much better to learn from them this way.

I used Shiranui, need luck to get the red coin toss tho
Yes, just listen to your credit card and make some purchases. Whatever you buy you cannot go wrong.
So bad it's too late for red-eyes darkness dragon, it won't see play. My favorite card...
Then let me tell you that the real life card game, the TCG/OCG version of Yugioh, uses 5 zones in...
