  • Juzo:
    Unlike other players, only use 20 cards for Sylvan deck. I use 2 copies of snapdrassil to thin my deck. This is because I am aiming for consistent quick victories. If any case it will last more. I added Lotuswain to recycle my marshal and kumosh. As for the spell card. I used 2 raging mad plant and hey trunade. The hardest archatype I fought is Hazy deck.
  • ImCuhfs:
    Little different Skill Mythic depths is amazing because ssa is almost as popular as sylvans with also golden flying fish running mythic depths as well i switched to it because OPPONENTS are naive an they dont think about what that face down card so they get tricked into attacking an then they lose. Again i believe prov. Is a must because its discards rose lover, heavyweight etc. Always try to use mushroom because merchany is inconsistent in excavating.
  • G0rgrom:
    I like the Aroma Strategy skill cause it greatly reduces the rng and raises the ceiling of the deck, fixing "bad" hands without giving away information like restart does. Otherwhise its pretty standart.
  • magi:
    Ultimate Providence:

    • mirror match
    • Citadel Whale and Golden Fish
    • some times against Cyber Angels and Hero

    " The Tie that Binds" skill for game finishing;
    you dont need a high lvl. monster for this skill and you wont giving too many information (Ultimate Providence) like restart does.

  • modiXYZ:
    The deck uses Sylvan Komushroomo or Marshalleaf to mil good cards early on to clear my opponent's board. I do not run an otk version since I think that some opponents might be able to stop it easily, I thought the rose archer was very useful especially towards the last couple of games.
  • rFelix:
    -i use 3 trees for a better control of draws,.
    -try to count your cards at gy and your hand
    -if you don't start with shroom try to use leaf to destroy the face down card or put your carrot face down to be destroyed then next turn you can combo with rose lover then OTK.
    -Bad matchups - cyber angel (negate his searcher), archfiends(negate call of archfiend), mirror match(negate rose lover or shroom).
  • Seagryfn:
    -Don’t rely on 1st card as face down with a flip. Too many PvP decks (SSA, CA, Divine Wrath, other Sylvans, etc.) destroy your facedown with no effect getting activated. Magical Merchant is ineffective.
    -1st turn SET RoseLover or Carrot; use the graveyard effects next round. Set Komushroomo only if you can guard it with Ultimate Providence. If you don’t have those, open with Marshalleaf in attack mode.
    -Key is to use RoseLover’s effect to special summon high level monster immune to Trap effects the turn it is summoned. Can use Carrot from the graveyard, or use your spells or trap, or tribute/lose her on the field, to send RoseLover to the graveyard.
    -Lotuswain recycles Komushroomo and Marshalleaf from the graveyard. It is also handy to use to tribute any card you need off the field.
    -Marina’s special lets you destroy 1 opponent card if another of your plants is destroyed. If needed, charge a monster as a sacrifice to activate Marina.
    -”The Tie That Binds” lets you overpower most similar level opponent monsters. This deck needs no restart skill; you can often have 3 powerful monsters by your second turn
  • Kirito:
    Divine Wrath has definitely been clutch especially when it is in your opening hand. It has helped beat the tougher matchups in CA (bigggest challenge for me) and for the mirror matches. Max Hermitree was to help manipulate the deck for better advantage.
  • Fox:
    Restart if you don't have ultimate providence honestly this is sylvans so yeah no surprise KOG worthy but if you use this list you can run snipe hunter over tribute if you don't have it just snipe gets destroyed by every Sylvan hate card it's just important to destroy set cards and negate effects so you can do Sylvan stuff
  • Capkcaj87:
    A very quick Sylvan deck. Spell/trap cards work good against other Sylvan. Use "Restart": you need to draw magical merchant/komushroomo if you play first or a spell/trap card if you play for second. If you don't draw spell/trap cards you may suffer against CA and Archfiend.
  • Thanks Ojama:
    It's a fairly standard 20 card Sylvan deck that can flood the field on it's 2nd turn. I like the Right Back at You skill because you can usually absorb a turn of big damage and then turn that around to let one monster punch above it's weight class to help score the OTK.
  • 《S》LibraX67:
    Budget deck to reach KOG.
    The strategy is about what the first hand you get. I'm using restart because the important card about this deck is ultimate providence. Since so many player using combo by card effect you can negate activation by this trap. If you deal with dakini make sure you negate senju first because almost all dakini player summon senju. Even deal with hazy fire beatdown this deck can be usefull. Turn off ur toggle when you activate card effect to make sure your opponent didn't know what the card you set. When opponent activate card effect to summon another monster which is hazy name, negate it. If you facing anki just negate when anki call mask change that would destroy anki before anki call it and percentage win duel would be increase
  • Orangisevil:
    To start of, I decided to only use three spell/trap cards so I would get the most use from my Sylvan excavate effects. Try to get a Komuso and a Providence on your starting hand if you go first and if you go second try to get a Rosearcher, Roselover, Tribute to the Doomed etc to your Hand to set up new plays and break your opponents board with Tribute to the Doomed and auch, you can also discard a Roselover or a Carrotweight by using this cards so you can set up your plays. Play restart to better your odds to get the cards I mentioned above.
    Hope you get first, save ultimate provinence for enemy keycards and think all your plays through.
  • Capecrusade:
    Several OTKs using Econ + Rose lover take and special summoning Hermtree using rose. Also Grit versus Anki and cyber angels won me few duels on the way to KOG. This deck doesn't fare well with Hazy.
  • Xandeon:
    Against Dakini, try to reach for Control
    Against Sylvan and Flying fish, try to reach for Providence
    Against HERO, try to reach for Komushroomo
  • blabla:
    Note to play: use beatdown skill to boost attack in order to lower down LP quicker and beat high attack monster when needed. The idea is to summon asap strong monsters, thus E. Controller to send Rose lover graveyard and sacrifice monster of opponent or protect from Anki or Sylvan deck also as well as Embodiment trap to summon Guardioak. I use Talya as it protects plant monsters and has high attack.
  • Truth:
    I found this to be the most consistent of all the versions of this deck that I've tried. 3 Hermitree's for deck control, 1 Gigaplant for summoning from the graveyard, 1 Guardioak for recycling Gigaplant, 2 carrots seemed to be a good balance. The most important part of this deck for the current meta is 3 copies of Ultimate Providence and Enemy Controller each. Ultimate Providence works wonders against CA, Fish, Alien, and other Sylvan decks, Enemy Controller for everything else including Masked Hero, Destiny Hero, AG, etc. The toughest matches I faced were against Hazy and Citidal Whale/SSA decks. The skill "Right Back At You" helps with matches against Hazy if you can survive the first turn, and you have to hope you hit multiple card effects simultaniously against Citidal Whale/SSA.
  • Mav Maverick:
    I chose to run Balance over Restart because I consider my backrow crucial for protecting and setting up my Sylvan plays. Though Balance is not always guaranteed to work in my favor, the card ratios helps to ensure that I open with at least two monsters and a spell/trap almost all of the time. Tribute to the Doomed can replace either one or both copies of Dark Core; it is in some cases better because it can target face-down cards, but I prefer to run Dark Core because of the stronger removal.

  • jhall5013:
    Of course the idea is to get golden flying fish out asap. Flying fish effect works well with oyster meister due to meister's effect. Throw in a powerful rebirth to gain 4 tributes to destroy 4 opponents cards. I use spined gillman as a back up attack booster. Easily summoned due to hammer shark effect.
  • Rand Al-Thor:
    With the massive amounts of Sylvan and gear players, running Forbidden Chalice is a good option if you have them to negate their effects. I ran with Mind Scan, often people bluff their face down cards. 200 attack isn't worth seeing what is facedown.
  • Jasza:
    FC vs Sylvan/Fusion (Vyon etc)
    Econ vs Masked/CA
    WoD vs Hazy
    FF vs other decks.
    You can destroy opponents cards with FF's effect or swarm field with Swamp Mirror&Hammer's effects.



Hot New Top
This game is accelerating too fast into p2w. I'm a veteran player, recently got 365 days, but I can't keep up with all the box releases and their increasing power creep. Aliens were a good deck from the last box but they're already powercrept out by sylvans (Aids) and Anki and now the big p2w CA and Archfiends can run riot yet again. it's getting to the point where it's just not fun anymore and you have to throw way too much money at the game on too regular a basis to keep up.

There's something wrong then, if you're not having fun, while I'M HAVING FUN WITH YOU :) Do you know some of the basic tenets or principles of trolling? Even the "laws of power" have them! Did you realize it then? Your last reply was a CONFESSION! I can't believe you have ceded already! Yes, you're done, because if you'll keep going it will probably leave a bitter, humiliating after-taste! Ciao~!

I think I can be blamed for this as well, even if I can slightly recognize you, me on the other hand, has different way of writing styles and patterns. I can be barbaric, crass and uneducated if I want to. But seriously, leave me alone :)

Yeah, the meta changed so drastically with valiant souls, but u know what? Here in the west almost EVERYONE clinges too much to new trends, if u are not part of the new trend, you suck. What im saying is that u dont really need valiant souls, u can play hazy flames, ssa or cyber angels and still reach KoG.

For me the last awesome box was Abyss Encounters, didnt spend a single gem on Valiant Souls bcuz Flying Fish kicks so much ass! :D!
I find it hilarious how ppl STILL whine about sylvans. Lol!, such an average deck, no big deal to beat them at all. If you lose is because you are always complaining, hating and whinning. That's why you never leave Silver rank lol, go and say you are already kog bla bla bla, that you are bored because sylvans this, sylvans that; go ahead, tell me all the lies you want, I won't believe you. Can't believe the words of a mere hater who prefers to blame others for his own misplays in a game Lol!

Yep, unlimited cyber angel was Overkill! But now amazoness counters ca, ssa counters amazoness, sylvans might counter ssa, but flying fish counters sylvans back, and geargias + 3 pulse mines are fairly against any deck. There's so much balance now than in previous seasons
I'm losing like always with sylvans. Here's the deck:

2x sphere kuriboh
1x mariña
1x komushroomo
2x carrot
2x marshall (still waiting for that 3rd one)
2x oak
2x hemitree
3x rose lover
3x merchant
2x Antimagicarrows

For some reason, I go second 90% of the time. And when I use magical merchant, AMA is usually first or second card to pick up. Does the game just hate me or is it my deck? Btw I bought 76 packs to get my first komushroomo (no joke) so I have no idea when the second one will drop

To have a constant deck you need 3 Komushroomo.
1 to start the game and the other 2 to take care of their backrow.

The Meta has adapted to Sylvans, and most PVP decks (SSA, CA, other Sylvans, Ultimate Providence traps, Divine Wrath traps) now have a way to remove the first face down card without triggering the FLIP effect. If you go SECOND, your best bet is Sylvan Marshalleaf in attack mode. Face down use Rose Lover or World Carrotweight Champion. That will allow you to summon using your graveyard next turn.

N Dont depend on merchant, its inconsistent
For the well balance and versatility of the game, I believe Konami will semi of even limit “Rose Lover” to 1 just like they did with all the accessible cards or easily obtainable cards (Machine angel ritual, Dakini, Red eyes spirit, champion vigilance, golden bamboo sword etc..)

The only thing that will happen with limiting Rose Lover, is killing all the other Plant decks while letting Sylvan remains alive and well, the exact opposite of what everyone wanted to see.

Lol, they are talking about marshleaf when they are excavated from the deck. I don't think anybody will worried about marshleaf when it is on the field. It only excavate 2 cards. You don't need SSA/Divine Wrath/SSA to murder him. Just attack him with (UR) Axe Raider and he is dead.
I'd rather lose playing my own original deck than get KOG with one of the meta decks that everyone uses.

From a Real Player
Just knowing that the typical Sylvan player is going to play 3 E-con and 3 ultimate providence. If he faces down a card on first turn and I'm not able to summon dakini, I summon Saffira and choose Draw 2 cards discard one card. I do not attack because that face down card might be Rose Lover, if he excavates the GREEN SYLVAN, I just banish Hymn of Light. Never leave Saffira alone because they might use E-con on you, always play 2 monsters on field. If my opponent plays Archfiends, well, know that such deck is full of traps that summon Archfiend Emperor from Graveyard to field, I doesn't contain any Wall of Disruption or Econ. So, just by having a Saffira with 3500 atk (Idaten Bonus) on field, he won't be able to kill it. KNOW THEIR TECHS.

Haters do not only hate because hating gives them pleasure, no, I'd say some other game companies send their sneaky trolls to trash talk. That's such an awful way to compete in the industry, specially when no one of them is poor. Some uber materialistic folks don't even know the difference between what is good and what is evil.

You can reach kog with almost any decent deck, it's late in this season so it's pretty much easy.
This deck would be better with 3 sphere kuribohs in it, but it wouldnt be so "f2p".
Don't come here telling lies that u are such a pro and are disgusted by sylvans,because if u were as good as you say, you already would be at kog rank instead of being here complaining.

I hope konami will not limit sylvans or rose lover, just because some P2W player cry why their expensive deck cant OTK all the other deck in the game.

Concerning your definition of OP i just want to add that it's overused because it a lot more easier accessable to a wide audience. to build one of the very strong top tier decks you would have to spent like 1000$ or more (or you save all gems for only this one deck ignoring every other card box) so these decks are stronger than sylvans but only very few people can build them.

Then explain to me why do you think nobody complained about Rose Lover and Carrot in Aromages until Sylvan show up?

Simple, it's because they were not the problem to begin with.

Sylvan must be excavated to do their job, yes, but that has nothing to do with Rose Lover and Carrot. Sylvan can still nuke your board even without Guardioak and Hermitree, their low level monsters can excavate too.

sylvan is archetype. just like all the others. But sylvan is easy to make and difficult to beat. people who use sylvans are not doing anything different from others who use different archetypes. Sylvans are too good and is not limited to pay2win players.
