Duel Links Dragunity Synchro deck, Dragunity Synchro in the current meta, how to use.

“Dragunity” is an archetype of Dragon and Winged Beast monsters whose effects mainly revolve around equipping the Level 3 or lower Tuner monsters to the higher Level non-Tuner ones. Once the Level 3 or lower monsters are equipped, there are multiple ways to Special Summon them from the Spell & Trap Zone, giving you access to various Synchros.
It has definitely been a while since the last time Dragunity Synchro has seen competitive play in Duel Links, but the new Structure Deck EX Dragunity Overdrive might be what the archetype needs to be relevant again.

How to Use

Dragunity Senatus & Dragunity Phalanx

By discarding 1 “Dragunity” card, Dragunity Senatus allows you to equip to it 1 “Dragunity” Tuner directly from your Deck.

  • Normal Summon Senatus, discard 1 “Dragunity” card and equip Dragunity Phalanx. While it’s equipped to a monster, Phalanx can be Special Summoned from the Spell & Trap Zone.

  • Special Summon Phalanx and Synchro Summon Dragunity Knight - Vajrayana (Level 6 Synchro) or, with the help of Level Augmentation, Dragunity Knight - Ascalon (Level 10 Synchro).

If you activate Dragunity Senatus’s effect, you cannot Special Summon any non-Dragon monsters from the Extra Deck for the rest of the turn, so, despite its name, you will not be able to Synchro Summon Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier.
Upon being Synchro Summoned, Vajrayana will allow you to equip Phalanx (or any other Level 3 or lower “Dragunity” Dragon monster in your Graveyard) to it.

  • Equip Phalanx to Vajrayana and Special Summon it, once again, from the Spell & Trap Zone.

Now, if it’s the 1st Turn, you might want to Synchro Summon Stardust Spark Dragon.

Dragunity Aklys & Dragunity Militum

Dragunity Aklys

When Dragunity Aklys is Normal Summoned, you can Special Summon 1 “Dragunity” monster from your hand, and then equip it with Aklys.

  • Normal Summon Aklys, Special Summon Dragunity Militum, equip Aklys to Militum.

Once per turn, Dragunity Militum allows you to Special Summon 1 “Dragunity” card from your Spell & Trap Zone.

  • Special Summon Aklys via Militum’s effect and Synchro Summon Vajrayana, Gae Dearg, Brionac, or Ascalon.

If you Summon Vajrayana, you can equip to it Aklys from the Graveyard, and then send it back to the Graveyard to double its ATK until the end of the turn. When Aklys is sent to the Graveyard, it allows you to target 1 card on the field and destroy it. Get rid of your opponent’s monsters and attack directly for massive damage.

I’ve already mentioned this card a couple times, but I need to emphasize just how good it is: if you equip Dragunity Knight - Vajrayana with this card, you will be able to equip it with Dragunity Aklys from the deck, increase its ATK by its Level x100 (600) and make it immune to Trap Cards.

If you are not convinced yet, let me add one more thing: if you then send Dragunity Aklys to the Graveyard with Dragunity Knight - Vajrayana’s effect, you will be able to destroy a card on the field and double Vajrayana’s current ATK, making a 5000 ATK monster immune to Trap Cards. Honestly the opponent has to stop you before you get to this point, unless you are playing against a Spellbook player.

The Extra Deck

By banishing 1 “Dragunity” monster from your Graveyard, Dragunity Knight - Ascalon allows you to target 1 monster your opponent controls and banish it. This would be a pretty underwhelming effect for a Level 10 Synchro that even requires a specific Tuner if it wasn’t for the fact that it’s not limited to a “once per turn” use.

As long as you have “Dragunity” monsters in your Graveyard to banish, you can keep on activating this effect.
If this Synchro Summoned card in its owner's control is destroyed by an opponent's card, you can Special Summon 1 "Dragunity" Synchro Monster with 3000 or less ATK from your Extra Deck.

Since this is treated as a Synchro Summon, if you use Ascalon’s effect to Summon Dragunity Knight - Barcha or Dragunity Knight - Vajrayana, you will be able to activate their effects.

I’ve already explained what you can do with this card, so I’m not going to repeat myself, the only thing that should be noted is that its effect doubles its “current” ATK and not its original ATK.

Once per turn, during either player’s turn, Stardust Spark Dragon allows you to target 1 face-up card you control; once during that turn, that card cannot be destroyed by battle or card effect. You can respond to Treacherous Trap Hole by activating this effect, targeting even Stardust Spark Dragon itself, a prevent it from being destroyed. Stardust Spark Dragon is essentially a fairly safe Turn 1 play.

Additional Notes


[Skill] descriptionUser
Level Augmentation
Reveal 1 monster in your hand and select 1 monster on your side of the field. The selected monster's level increase by the level of the monster you revealed. This Skill can only be used once per Duel.

This Skill is used to Summon Dragunity Knight - Ascalon with more ease. You can still run Beatdown! or Quick as WIND with Cosmic Cyclone, but extra ATK is definitely not needed.


  • The Sanctified Darklord completely shuts down your main combos, Darklord Desire can get rid of any of your monsters, meaning there’s no need for your opponent to get over them, and Artifact Lancea can prevent Ascalon from activating its effect. It’s safe to say that Darklords is one of your worst matchups.

  • Being a Synchro deck means that Treacherous Trap Hole, Floodgate Trap Hole, and Canadia can give you a hard time. I added Hey, Trunade! to the Example Deck to deal with them, and I could see myself adding a second one in the future.

  • Aklys and Phalanx can’t do anything by themselves (drawing the latter is in fact mostly pointless), and Dragunity Divine Lance does not help at all without Senatus or Militum. I would still run at least two copies of Phalanx just in case you draw one, but Divine Lance might get swapped for something else when more cards are revealed.

Anyone know a 20 card version where you only get the structure deck once? I already bought out Blackstorm Rising twice so I have all the other Dragunity cards, so that part isn't a problem.

Just replace second or third copies from the structure deck with your best alternatives.

I'm still hoping they eventually release a Mecha Phantom Beast structure deck. It seems like a fun strategy, but the fact that you need to buy a whole bunch of SR/UR cards from like half a dozen different boxes makes it annoyingly expensive to build.
Cheap and fun, love it!

Cards of Consonance, Storm, Dragunity Divine Lance
Just a quick note as I see this post recommends against running Black Winged Dragon: if you’re also using Cosmic Cyclone you can use BWD to negate LP lose and use its effect, banishing a spell/trap and debuffing an opponent’s monster’s Atk by 700. Doesn’t work as well with Quick as Wind, but it’s a good play to get over 3000 Atk beaters protected by backrow.

Cosmic Cyclone doesn't inflict damage. Even if it did, it would likely have to succeed in doing so to banish anything, similar to a card like Against the Wind.

yep, paying cost is not the same as taking damage.

I'm glad that we're in 2020 and people still think cost is damage

According to your issue, you cannot use BWD to negate LP loss when your opponent activates Cosmic Cyclone since the 1000 LP is paying cost not inflicting damage.

Running any less than three divine lance is a sin
we need more dragunity support

What's nice about Dragunity is since it's basically just a synchro engine support can come in the form of something as simple as better lvl 8 synchro targets. Or any of the other support cards like Dragon Ravine.
How do you beat buster blader with this deck

Since BB can shut down your synchro engine the only hope is to swarm faster than them. If they manage to get Destruction Swordmaster out though your only hope is to get rid of it with spells or otherwise deactivate its effect.
Can i get a rate on my deck and maybe some tips on how to make it better. Im using the one listed here on the wiki until i get a better feel for how they work in duel links.

Im missing one Dox and Phalanx
I dont have any double cyclones or parallel twisters.

Im hoping someones tried a different combination or cards that runs smoother without bricking as often as this the one im running.

Lose two mystletain add another militum and dux, focus on aklys and militum since that is one turn synchro and will lead to most of your otk combos also hey trunade would be better than cosmic this way you can get rid of multiple pesky backrow in order to get that otk and not use up your life should you brick and maybe some drowning mirror I run two in mine, at the end of the day deck will still

.....Why are you still using Yusei's skill? Stardust Dragon is in a box, you can use it without his skill.
