Flower Cardian: deck recipe

Duel Links Breaking News
Yubel event guide!
update 04/09/2019


Most Flower Cardian monsters have the effect of Special Summoning themselves by tributing a Cardian monster you control. You will then get to draw a card and, if it is a Cardian monster, trigger the Special Summoned monster's second effect. For this reason Cardian decks must be almost completely composed of Cardian monsters.

Cardians are very bricky, and their high-leveled monsters have very low stats. But in exchange for raw power they offer powerful effects and support that would otherwise be broken in other archetypes. Additionally their effects do not have a "once per turn" restriction, so you are free to summon as much as you can.

Grit will be used to prevent you from dying due to a bricky starting hand because Cardians have no in-archetype way of fetching Flower Cardian Pine.

How to Use

Flower Cardian Pine

The most important card in this deck and the first monster you always play. Not getting Flower Cardian Pine in your starting hand, or having it stolen by your opponent, is an immediate lose condition if it wasn't for Grit.

Upon Normal Summon Flower Cardian Pine lets you draw a card. This is best comboed by Flower Stacking to put the Flower Cardian monster you want to summon on top of your deck before you Normal Summon Flower Cardian Pine.

Flower Cardian Pine with Crane

Because of its summoning condition Flower Cardian Pine with Crane can only be summoned by tributing Flower Cardian Pine. When Special Summoned, Flower Cardian Pine with Crane lets you Special Summon the Cardian monster at the top of your deck. In turn this will trigger the Special Summoned Cardian monster's effect so this one move could be quite powerful. Flower Cardian Pine with Crane lets you draw a card if it battled during the turn.

Keep in mind if you draw Flower Cardian Zebra Grass with Moon or another Flower Cardian Pine with Crane you cannot immediately Special Summon it with Flower Cardian Pine with Crane's effect because of their innate restrictions.

Field Control

Flower Cardian Clover with Boar and Flower Cardian Maple with Deer can respectively destroy your opponent's monsters and Spell/Trap cards on top of the standard Cardian draw effect. Both effects combined make these monsters great for gaining advantage and controlling the field.

If you control multiple copies, you can alternately tribute and Special Summon between both monsters to clear your opponent's board.

Flower Cardian Peony with Butterfly

Flower Cardian Peony with Butterfly makes synchro summoning work in a deck with almost all high-leveled monsters, this is because of its effect to treat all Synchro materials as level-2. This level adjustment easily gives you access to level-4 and level-6 Synchro monsters.

You can choose to not activate Flower Cardian Peony with Butterfly's level adjustment and simply pair it with Flower Cardian Pine or Flower Cardian Pine with Crane to make a level-7 Synchro monster.

Aside from being a great Synchro enabler, Flower Cardian Peony with Butterfly is able to change the arrangement of the top cards of your opponent's deck to put key cards at the bottom.

Flower Cardian Zebra Grass

Flower Cardian Zebra Grass lets you extend your field because he is a no cost Special Summon as long as you control a level-7 or lower Cardian monster. Its effect is not as powerful as the other Cardian monsters but can help you get a better hand. Use him as tribute for other Cardian monsters or as Synchro material.

Flower Cardian Zebra Grass with Moon interacts with Flower Cardian Zebra Grass similar to how Flower Cardian Pine with Crane interacts with Flower Cardian Pine, because of Flower Cardian Zebra Grass with Moon's summoning condition it can only be summoned by using Flower Cardian Zebra Grass as tribute. It then acts similarly to Flower Cardian Pine with Crane with the difference of drawing a card after destroying an opponent's monster.

RIGHT... this legit needs to be banned. Had a whole field set up (bewd) and it just beat me in one turn afterwards... ONE TURN!! it cycled through its whole deck and summoned everything possible, this is just unfair. How can this be allowed?!?!

>there is nothing to talk about

I gave specific reasons as to why the deck isn't as overpowered as it seems. I gave a list of its weaknesess in terms of its ability to brick.

I got answers like:
"wow ur trying to sabatoge peoples mindset"
"How is this deck bricky i won so many times"

Why do i get the feeling you're the dude who couldn't figure out why i brought up the concept of power creep?

Sorry I was wrong about you, and thank you for patience, I think I learned something new today. The internet never ceases to amaze me he heh
This deck is so Pog
After trying Cardian using different skill and different build, let me share my experience:
- Grit is my favorite skill. Really helpful against most deck including mirror match
- Only 2 monsters worthy to put at 3 copies : Pine and Clover
- Crane is garbage. Better not to run any.
- Maple has good effect but it should be enough at 2 copies. Because Clover's effect of destroying monster often forces your opponent to activate backrow by himself (especially those who run World Legacy Clash and TTH). Also Maple's level isn't compatible with Zebra Grass.
- Peony and Boardefly are underrated. You won't go far with Cardian if you only focus on Clover and Maple's effect

True. Peony can lock your opponent's moves by arranging their incoming cards properly
I really like flower cardians, they are top tier, I have beaten cyberdark, darklord, scrap, destiny heroes with poison, cyber, etcetera. But, they are kinda bricky, people who hate this deck is because they have lost against it, they do not know how to build it or they do not understand it
DARK WORLD DEALINGS +RECARDINATION is another way when you can't have neither pine nor stacking in first turn

*gets DWD but without Recardination
*still bricks
Why are people complaining about this deck, it’s literally all or nothing. This deck has 6 cards in its 20 card deck to make it work meaning that they only have a 33.3% chance of “winning”. You can argue that you’re chances get greater the longer the game goes so ok let’s do that math. Opening hand 4 cards to draw you have a 37.5% chance of getting pine or stacking (6/16) and next turn (6/15) you have a 40% chance total best case scenario if you have grit assuming that the oppenent can’t 🔥 you 3 times over, or have Econ, or a kuhribo (spelling may be wrong), or a bacon savior etc. If you don’t get it then Other meta decks have a much greater odds than a 40%, need examples look at every tier one or zero deck in the history of this game, all of them have way more consistent setups than this deck, and even if they miss that chance they normally have a backup worst case scenario. The biggest difference is that this deck has at most a 40% chance of winning ASSUMING that the oppenent has NO counter play

This deck is just annoying, still against yubel it base low chances of wining
tbh there should be no deck that cycles through their entire deck in one turn. 🔥 is stupid especially in a game as limited as duel links. cmon now
