A comment from Overhaul:
Get ur LP below 2K, get rid of necrofear through discard effect magic/traps and trigger and Destiny Board and stall. Beats Koaki easy.

Dark Magician

A comment from Lana:
All card are main, except trap. Your can use any trap that prepends your card destroyed. I just use 2 Paleo because I didn't have another one still. Try to clear as many as possible back row cards on the field with Dark Magic Attack. Last, modify it based on your needs.

Destiny Board

A comment from Memehammad:
Does amazing against the current meta. Only really loses to control decks that play Armades. Conserve resources and don't overextend and it's easy claps

A comment from Maxtobas:
Always try to have Rex on the field, it is a difficult monster to beat and its easy to recover thanks to Evilswarm. Make the opponent use all his/her traps and counters against Rex, also Fossil Dig and Sarcophagus can make the deck faster.
Ultimate providence it's a game changer, using in the best moment can make you win the duel, using Rex as the cost doesn't hurt.

Really good against Spellbook and Amazoness thanks to Rex effect. Kuriboh, Enemy Controller give you a second chance against Koaki. Against Silent Magician and Swordsman, Black Brachios can be the MVP.

A comment from Imm0rtalD3ad:
Be very smart playing this deck. Especially when going first. You must anticipate what deck your opponent is using. Especially when going first. If against Yubel, you almost always want to synchro summone into stardust. Against blue eyes (1st turn) you wanna use Gae Bulg. If you don't kill, you might wanna set up with Gae Dearg and draw a Dux making sure you have phalanx and aklys in the graveyard/field.

Fabled Synchro

A comment from Eliminate :3:
Notes: I found "Grit" to be a necessary skill for the current Fabled archetype. It solves that first turn issue and enables consistency. By all means lay down your traps, but otherwise hold out for that extra monster. Speaking of which; these cards synergise incredibly well with one another as is (more than they do with Dark World Dealings).

I tried those spell and trap variations for discarding purposes and it simply didn't function as well as it does now. Snipe Hunter is fairly self-explanatory and absolutely perfect for OTKO's, especially alongside Trunade. Urustos provides a nice attack boost in general, and the synchro monsters cater to a variety of effects depending on what you need.

E.g. Koa'ki Meiru? The Fabled Kudabbi. Deck Out Traps? Armades. Yubel? Stardust. Spellbook? Just summon everything, they can only banish one. It's extremely easy to get these things out so feel free to synchro summon several times in a turn; refill your hand with Fabled Ragin and bring out a stronger monster like Iron Chain Dragon. Play around Vampire Vamp/Sealed Tombs and just have fun.

Fur Hire

A comment from Riki:
Try to figure it what kind of deck you are facing with at the beginning of the match. It can help you a lot as you know what would be a better option ( either summon 2 monsters or 3 ). The other important thing you should focus is the usage of Mayhem Fur Hire, whether to use it for Wiz to negate or revive one of your monsters to activate the other 2 on the field on your enemy's turn. Good luck boyz!

SpiidoThe Tie that BindsJan 28

A comment from Spiido:
Notes: The only difference from my deck for other Fur Hire would be the "Spiritual Forest". Excluding Wiz, all other Fur Hire become immune to one attack per turn. The rest is something casual adopted by other players of this type of deck.

Lava Golem to surprise some opponents (especially Vampires and Koa'ki Meiru), Jinzo to neutralize traps, Kuriboh Sphere as an improvised defense, Cosmic Cyclone to affect the opponent backroll (ideally using Wiiz's ability, 2 monsters = 1000 LP) and finally the "Fur Hire trap" to speed up the deck and depending on the occasion use with synergy with the Spiritual Forest.

A comment from McBobX:
Decided to use "non-meta" deck, and I played many vaious decks. I struggeled with U.A, Archfiends, SSA, etc. Then tried Aliens, they have done well and I climbed to KOG rank up match 3 times, but lost all 3 unfortunately due to bricks (2 Overlord and no A Cell) and OTKs (Hey Trunade, which I want it to be banned tbh). Afterwards, it was just a waste of time with them.

I decided to use my last deck, Geargia, and they worked fine like usual. Play style is simple but sometimes risky: Ties your Geargia into 3 monsters then flip them down-up next turn to win. If you don't have Ties, then you are at a risk cause SRH won't save you from multiple Attributes, so use it wisely. Pulse Mines is another protection power you need to see.

This deck can beat any deck in the current meta, including Koakis, but like Fur Hires (Tier 0 version), you need to play around Sandman's negation, so use your traps at the correct moments. Canadia doesn't work on them, you either need 2 or it won't work.

emaraquinoBalanceJan 19

A comment from emaraquino:
Note: Geargia is still a strong deck against the current meta decks. It can easily beat anki decks with pulse mines, shut down karakuri, koa'ki meiru, and other decks with canadia and offerings to the doomed.

Using Balance makes the deck more consistent and gives you a high probability of having ties of the brethren in your opening hand. However, geargia struggles with treacherous traphole. My KOG rank up duel was against vamps.

A comment from NetoLeal:
Note: Easy to master the deck, i recomend playing some games out of the ladder or in ranks you don't fall to learn the deck. It's a very linear playstile. Just flip your boys and destroy everything! xD

MikiRaineDestiny DrawJan 20

A comment from MikiRaine:
Had a hard time for this season reaching KoG because of the buffed Koaki deck and silent swordsman deck but solemn scolding and destiny draw synergy; and triamid pulse saved me many times.

I will rank the difficulty of decks facing my deck in the best of my opinion

  • easy : anti-trap, batteryman, aromage, blizzard princess, blue eyes, cyberdark, geargia, ojama

  • medium: amazoness, dragunity, masked hero, silent magician, silent swordsman, spellbook, ua, vampire, yubel

  • hard: bujin, koaki, sea stealth,

For dark necrofear, fabled synchro, radion control decks i cannot assume the difficulty since i only have faced them only a few times or not.

They were never meta to begin with. Kinda like Mermails, hyped because of what happened in the TCG/OCG, only to do mostly nothing in DL.
I don't understand those salty pathetic dudes that only said "konami is greedy" and bunch of stupid things. i don't defend konami they are not saints. but being this stupid?. come on the most strong deck right now is really cheap, you can build any competitive deck without expensive real money. it's not konami fault that you love blue eyes ultimate dragon and spend 15000 gems only to get it.
Master Shamo
I hopet that the limit for every card to be 1 and the deck wtith 30 cards only .. only some cards to allowed to have some copy like blue eyes white dragon that is need to fusion summon or cards that have effect with other copy of themselfs ... than u will see how good yugioh will be .. then u will see how everyone will enjoy the pvp .. thats will be what yugioh need to be sucessful .. ( this is my opinion nothing more nothing less )

in a deck with 40+ card is ok .. i said some cards to have allowed to be 3 copy polymerization i think need that , but this is just a dream my friend .. just a dream of a old shool yugioh player :p :p :p
<< Anonymous(Master Shamo)

your idea is great in my opinion the best duels are +10 turns but less than 20. Its just that konami wants to make people play the game because duels aren't taking so long so.......We need a an official trinity format where you can use each card once and the deck must be 30 cards or 60(tcg)
<< Anonymous(Master Shamo)
i disagree Reply
so you basically want archetypes to die out. that would just make every player play the same deck. the same best 15 lv 4 monster in the game and the the best 15 backrow cards (with some varieties going around) and then all the f2p whiners (all due respect to f2p player - i'm one as well) would still complain about being unable to get the more expensive cards and ofc losing
<< Anonymous(Master Shamo)
i disagree Reply
but i would agree with the 10-20 turn duel idea. the problem with this is that it would just make the game too expensive and too repetitive. not to mention every deck would be running mind scan, again making it even more repetitive. it would basically mean the death of duel links
As I said before:
1) Last ban list update only limited R cards.
2) then EX structure packs became purchasable with gems; the cost of it went down from 10 bucks to 6$.
3) They have also increased the drop rate of gems. What does that tell you? Duel Links is doing pretty well.

Which is the strongest deck right now?
Answer: Koa'ki Meiru.
You can get it for free.

Actually, they are doing very fine. Last ban list update only limited R cards, then EX structure packs became purchasable with gems; the cost of it went down from 10 bucks to 6$. They have also increased the drop rate of gems. What does that tell you?. I think you people are blinded by hate.

I vote the autistic conspiracy guy as the most 🔥ed
I think the recent ban list and skill rework are going on the right track. Looking at the kog list, it's one of the most diverse one. There are still some meta deck that outright stomp other decks but that's normal they have a better consistency. Sincerely hoping for a limit on vampire and koa'ki next. We don't need tier 0 / 1 decks.

First you point out how so many decks are getting KOG. Then you want vampire and koaki on the ban list. This sounds like a contradiction. The fact that we have all of these different decks doing so well should tell you that we don't need any other limits.

Currently 166 kog players submited on this website. 44 are tier 1 deck (26%). 43 are using tier 2 deck (25%). I am aware a lot of people don't submit their kog deck here. But with just this, you can see how 2 decks are overwhelming the majority of other archetypes. And those decks aren't doing well, because they don't have enough support cards to compete. That's why i want those tier 1 limited.

Vamp is not even tier 1 anymore tbh. Karakuri, koaki and bb are. And I didn't think any of those need some nerf.

The current meta is not bad at all. Even if Koa'ki Meirus are the top deck right now, I don't encounter them too often.

I'm seeing a lot of Karakuris, Buster Blader, vampires, silent magician and yes... even some Ankis lol

well yeah bruh, Im not encountering koa'kis as often as I encountered sylvans and fur hire, which is very good for the game. But even so, Ive been playing a lot against them even this last day of the season with my alt account. They are pretty relevant.

hmmmmm just by taking a look at this kog list I realized how diverse is the current meta, plenty of decks are viable. Koa'kis might be the strongerst atm but they do not 'shut down' other decks as amazoness onslaught did.

That's what the ban list do. Glad people acknowledge current meta diversity and not 🔥ing that it's not.
