How to use the deck

Tips for using the deck

During early levels of play, it is as simple as summoning monsters with high ATK. Yami Yugi's Power of Dark skill helps boosts all Fiend and Spellcaster type monsters, this will give you an advantage when going against opponents who are not using those types of monsters. Some monsters of those types already good base ATK, this is further boosted from the field spell and the other spell cards in the deck.

Even works in Auto Duel

AI can easily understand how the deck simply works, equipping spell cards to Dark monsters and attacking with them to beat the cpu using auto duel. This is easily doable when you are going against lower level standard duelists.

LIGHT monster, Tribute summon, Trap

Summoning LIGHT monsters, high level monsters and using Trap cards often are recommended since you have to perform them a number of times to unlock some of the Legendary Duelists.

  • No Wind or Earth attribute monsters to use “Element” monsters effect?

    There are currently only a few wind/earth that are either spellcaster or fiend that have good attack, so they won't get the benefit of the field spell but some can be a good choice once you have obtained better cards in the future such as Blue Dragon Summoner or Arsenal Summoner and equip spells that can be used on all elements.

Other useful cards

Although example deck just contains cards very easy to get, you can add/substitute more powerful/versatile cards once you get them. Here is a list of useful cards.

Other useful skills

None since the deck is built to be used with Yami Yugi's Power of Dark skill. Due to the "Yami" field, Element monsters gain 200 ATK/DEF boost.

Most decks in this website arent really that good, and yea this deck is terrible.

Then where would you recommend looking for deck rankings/tier lists/what to head for? Because this this sight is pretty much all I can find
rompokus36 1/1/1970
This deck list is pretty weak imo.
I suggest this low-cost deck instead:

Monster Card (12)
2x Dark Magician
1x Dark Magician Girl
3x Arsenal Summoner
3x Element Magician
3x Element Doom

Magic Card (5)
3x Banner of Courage
1x Mystic Box
1x Yami

Trap Card (3)
3x Conscription

This deck is:
- very cheap and easy to farm
- very good early
- good for auto-dueling
anoymous 1/1/1970
I find this decklist very weak.

Dragon Zombie and Ghoul make no sense. Yami is only for fiends and spellcaster. Sword of dark Destruction is only for the first 1-3 days usefull. U can replace it fast with Grarl, Baou or Pendant.

This is my Decklist
Monster (10)
2x Blue Dragon Summoner
2x Flash Assailant
1x Sphere Kuriboh
1x Ryu-Kishin
3x Rogue Doll
1x Riryoku
2x Baou
1x Grarl
1x Twister
1x Order to Charge
Traps (4)
1x Metalmorph
1x Etaqua
1x Michizure
1x Magic Jammer

I will add a third flash assailant as fast as possible

Your list isn't new player friendly.
