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:

2: Send Dawn Knight and Neos

And Dawn Knight gives you the Top Deck you want

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).

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.



Hot New Top
Flower cardians are the breath of fresh air needed from you p2w trash. I'll nuke your Brave Neos and watch as you can do sweet FA to stop me. Same goes for you Desperato and AG. I'll just sit over here trolling you with one of the best f2p decks ever

I am at dlv 19 right now. Except for a bit of a losing streak for a little bit in 17, it was easy to get here. But now I am afraid to continue. I only dueled twice so far, but it looks like 19 may be packed with the "perfect people" with all past season KOG icons next to their names that I usually have a hard time against. I lost once and only won the second time because they actually ran out of time on the timer doing all the fortune lady stuff. Is/was dlv 19 packed with all past season KOG players for anyone else and should I maybe wait a couple days to let it cool off and try for dlv max closer to the deadline? Advice is appreciated since I am not using a tiered deck, only KOG worthy at best.

I dueled again to get the rewards and one more time and I almost got knocked down to 18 and now I am back where I started again at the start of 19. Only won against a desperado deck that I was able to stop from getting the barrel dragon and a Yubel deck. The rest was AG, subterror, and metaphys.

This game was very enjoyable in 2017 but after fur hire deck this game gradually broke down. Even rookie ( NOOB ) players are able to make very silly strong decks with money. THİS NOT YUGİ OH !!

That’s he appeal of a good game- to have new players be able to come, learn and compete on the same level as older players. This is 110% Yu-gi-oh

I think only Final Battle and Cosmo Brain might become semi-limited, the other cards i doubt it.

The guy played Cyberdarks, and he was in a losing situation, then he hit me with a direct attack and my health instantly dropped to zero

Most of these decks have cards that can only be gotten by paying if you want to have the playset so yeah, p2w.

1 control deck vs 6 desperado decks. Yeah, no p2w decks here.

> im only only lvl 12

This is possibly the reason.
If people use it a lot, it doesn’t mean that they win.
This deck is simply the cheapest among EX decks.
This event needs to be renamed the 🔥 Cup you cant win unless you pay to play

Triamids, vendread. You only need to complete 3 mini box for each of them. 🔥ing cheap if u play long enough.
What I always do in every KC Cup event :
- During the 1st stage : play 5 games per day just grab the gems reward. Use fun deck only. Only start climbing for DLv Max during the 2nd stage days when all strong tryhard players already reach DLv Max
- After qualified for the 2nd stage : play 5 games per day just to grab the gems reward. Use 🔥 deck or simply pass every turn to quickly finish the game. Top place KC Cup spot is for rich sleepless homeboy, not for people like me who have daily business IRL and need to get good sleep everyday

fairs, im sorta the same but just a job and no business xD its all about fun but a lot of try hards just dont understand that sadly

Sleepless players tend to spend more money on this game. That's why Konami don't change any rules in the 2nd stage KC Cup, although it is easy for them to just limit the number of duels so no one can play more than 500 duels in the 2nd stage

If you want to play F2P, play Flower Cardian from the latest box. Not completely Top Tier, but good playable and all core cards are N and R

It is good and enjoyable if you invested in new boxes.

If you are unlucky to get stuck with older deck, Blue eyes for example, you suck to every Desperado/Darklord unless they played really bad and you have a god hand
