DahlingaardMind ScanJan 20

A comment from Dahlingaard:
I Use Mind Scan because it makes me play around my opponents traps and prevent him from taking advantage.
My main strategy is to wait til my opponent is vulnerable - by either using Telepath to remove backrow and finish him or combo off with recombination device and Powerful rebirth.

I've got one Chalice because its a VERY versatile card. Sometimes I use it to boost my attach in damage step to destroy my opponents monster so that I can OTK them next turn. Sometimes I negate effects, sometimes I only bait my opponent with it.

Powerful Rebirth is a huge card in the Alien deck because you can set recombination and rebirth and next turn use both. 3 Walls - Basically self explanatory it has won so many matches against silent swordsman and aggro decks(Blue-Eyes, Koaki).

SO BRUTALMind ScanJan 28

A comment from SO BRUTAL:
I run two Overlords to combine with A cell to set up future moves to summon the other Overlord and use Telepath to remove back row. Xing Zhen Hu allows me to lock down two back row requiring me to only have to worry about one spot. Enemy controller allows me to switch the opponents monster in defense and when they end their turn activate A cell to set up my next turn. I use Mind scan to help guide my decision when to go in for the finish or hold off until I can deal with it.

SharpshooterParasite InfestationJan 14

A comment from Sharpshooter:
The strategy of this deck is to Gradually reduce the opponent life points and through the use of the Skill parasite paracide 1 or 2 cards added to the opponents side (while this card(s) face up ,all monsters of my opponents side become insect type and inflicts 1000 effect damage also through the use of lava Golem (special Summon) during standby phase opponents inflict 1000 effect damage , while I'm using Amazoness it really helps you to reach the King of Games , I knew that all cards.

GanzoryDestiny DrawJan 18

A comment from Ganzory:
It’s the usual Amazoness deck with a few changes to counter specific decks. I use it with Yami Yugi’s Destiny Draw to make sure i draw the card i need to get the win. Jinzo and Cyber Soldier help me defeat other Amazoness decks and Trap decks as well as Anti-Meta decks.

Cyber Soldier and Amazoness Sword Woman get me the win against Masked HERO decks, U.A. decks and other Warrior decks. Amazoness Onslaught and Amazoness Queen ensure the victory against Fur Hire decks. The trap cards i have ensure i can deal with other decks such as the Blue Eyes, Koaki Meru and Vampire decks. Amazoness Sword Woman gets you the win most times but the key is to be patiant with your attacks.

A comment from El Potro:
After climbing from Platinum to Legend with basically the same Fur Hire deck I used last season, I decided to try something else for the final stretch to KOG.

I ran into a similar deck on a Vagabond, and decided to tweak it and make it a little bit more consistent; so basically I have a decent chance of opening up with either winning condition (Cipher+DNA or straight up Amazoness). Lava Golem is a decent support for either, whether you ram into it with Swordswoman or have a Cipher set.

Amazoness are still viable! Offerings of the doomed helps with koakis and masked heros, then the rest is the same recipe to maintain field control.

Middleton-Jan 30

A comment from Middleton:

Probably one of the simplest F2P King of games decks there is. The only difference to most anti-meta decks is that I used unknown synchron so I could bring out Armedes to use against Anki decks.

3x wall of D was essential because of the rise of Koaki Meira decks with Sandman and Maximus. Econ also a big help to stop maximus OTK.

Easily beat blue eyes, dark magician and Anki as they can't get over spikeshield.
Witch raider mainly used so vampires weren't too difficult.

Silent swordsman and magician decks struggled with the trap cards but I struggled against magicians more before Spellbook of Fate became semi limited.

Didn't need to use a skill so I used Jack Atlas but in the last match I unlocked Life point boost to start with 5000 which I will use from now on.

A comment from Wind:
Note: It is your average Anti-Trap deck with a little twist due to some missing cards and with a good amount of luck got me from legend 1 to KOG.

A comment from Maymae:
Just standard Aromage deck with a Slifer I added in which ironically won me the rank up game to kog haha lol xD


Hot New Top
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.

That's why when they play mobile games they ave tendency to really get into it, and pour out a steady fat wad of cash just to relieve the stress at work. They're very competent when it comes to in-app purchases because they have the resources.

Regarding Kaiba corp bling skill rebalance:
If you lose 1k points it lets you draw a random glossy or prismatic card (prismatic cards have higher chances to be drawn).
The plan is to use non-foil cards with any number of copies of a glossy/Prismatic card you usually want to draw like bujin Yamato for example.
a lot of ppl don't have 3 glossy/prismatic box cards, if you purchase the box several times the chance of having 3 glossy/prismatic copies of a card will highly increase, so the 1% of the playerbase that can purchase any box multiple times will have an unfair advantage, this matters in tournaments and events like the kc cup in which top players only care about winning with no regards to the amount of money spent.
This tiny unfair advantage is what the skill provides.
I don't think this skill will affect the ladder much, at least it only do so at the beginning of the season when the top players with more than 3 copies of most of the cards try to KOG early but if you are doing tournament take this skill into consideration.

The skill isn't a good general skill that can be used in many decks like balance, tie that binds and beatdown but it's really good in specific decks that heavily rely on one card that can twist the Battle to you favor like diamond core, mask change and Yamato, drawing such cards may insure you victory, the skill can be used many times but again it has a lp restriction and can't be used by everyone

yeah i understand that. I think the best for koaki players is dont waste all their cards in a single turn. If they save some cards, it dont worry if you going first or second and always you will have a 70% of success in OTK (that is more impresive of snipe hunter probability)

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.

So, I only just saw this. I climbed from L1 - L3 with aromages by itself. I decided to put in slifer in L3 thinking it wasn’t going to work, and I only saw it during the rank up game, which is when I summoned it and won

There are people that are pretty sure of their own skills and they could reach KoG any season with the same deck, ( I know one dude from Duel Links Meta who has reached kog with Gravekeepers for more than a Year lol ), so I'm not surprised when people picks a "MEME" or handicapped deck in order to reach kog.

Except they were also problems, and also got similar comments.

I don't view Koa'ki Meiru as QUITE as bad as something like Fur Hire or Sylvan, but it's still not great that they're a thing.

remember when people were even complaining about vampires/masked/amazones/fur hires meta it doesn't really matter how diverse or one sided current meta is,people are never satisfied and konami knows this.
Wacko Tsunami
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.

you have no idea what you're talking about dude... just go read SBB's effects and then come back and talk to us again. I bet you can't even say anything after that. after your monsters in a defensive position that means your monsters' asses are about to get fucked.

I fought a DNA Buster Blader last time,DNA surgery was activated before I summon Maximus with Buster Blader on the field, yes it will changed to defense position and I cant used its effect too, try it, same with Aliens they cant use their effects when they are on the field.
Why sandman effect doesn't work against Divine Wrath?

That rule was introduced very early in the game, most likely during the first time a Counter Trap is printed. It's a very old rule.

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

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
