Tsquared--Sept 8

A comment from Tsquared:

Made it to Lv 17 with Cyber Angels with barely any losses but after that, it got HARD. So I changed to Six Samurais. Nothing special about the deck. It has a lot of synergies and realistically you only need 1 monster in hand to make the whole deck work. I didn’t use a skill although in retrospect I probably should have.

Pduque13The Tie that BindsSept 11

A comment from Pduque13:

After the Enishi's ban, Offerings to the Doomed turned into a key card for the Six Samurais. Not only it helps cleaning your opponent's field, but it also can clean your field to activate Dual Wield, or be paired with Fuma to special summon any Six Samurai from your deck! OTTD is also a nice bluff in this set since opponents usually think you have a Dual Wield in your back row and don't swarm their field, turning the ability to destroy a face-up monster even more harmful!

Although this card's activation cost is high, using 3x Six Samurai United mitigates it a lot, and even if multiple OTTD were activated in a turn, they will still cost only the next draw phase. This situation often happens when you use this card 3x in a deck!!!

BlueboyfcBeatdownSept 9

A commment from Blueboyfc:

I decided to use Beatdown instead of Heavy Starter or Labyrinth Builder to increase my chances of OTK’s, as having Stygokraken and Umastryx with Beatdown is enough to kill anyone without LP Alpha. Having Ultramafus in the deck was just as important and he doesn’t ‘target’ monsters, but also removes protection from equips such as Cyberdark and Slash Dragon. Running a Cosmic Cyclone was also much more handy than an Enemy Controller as removing the Ancient Gear spells and Canadia stops their summoning effects. Finally, running Swarm of Locusts instead of Flip Flop Frog was very useful as it allowed me to summon Umastryx with Nemesis Warrior instead of relying on another monster.

A comment from JodeXtreme:

Notes: Kingolem is the absolute MVP of this deck. It shot down otherwise tricky match-ups like ancient gears and blue-eyes, and lets triamid pulse to go off in the battle phase way more times than should be allowed.
The main strategy I found vital for this deck is to have manual effect triggers ON, which allows you to prevent plays with pulse and the triamid quick effects with faster responses, e.g. getting 2 triamid spells on grave after the opponent summons, then with no spell speed 1 response chance, destroying said monster with pulse. This tactic worked best vs blue-eyes as cosmo brain could not be triggered to advance their plays.

A comment from Almond:

Lv 10 to lv 14 with triamid deck I am recently starting to learning. Difficult climb and many misplays later I turned to the comfort zone of the deck I have more experience with (Although I was already in for the 2nd stage). The main Matchups I encountered were desperado and dark lords, able to defeat both if not for some brick hands. Fortune ladies and Cardians are a big threat because of their no - targeting effects, faced both for about 3 - 4 duels each. Will continue training with Triamids and magnet warriors in next days before the 2nd stage starts, hopefully being skilled enough to rotate the three decks for next stage.

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.
