Deck rating


  • Very easy to play.
  • If you summon “Tyrant Dragon” fast you win the game.
  • Very easy to summon big monsters.


How to use this deck

This whole deck is based around summoning either “Blue-Eyes White Dragon” or “Tyrant Dragon” as fast as possible and winning the game by the overwhelming force of your huge monster.

Summon a Dragon as fast as possible

Best opener would be “Stray Lambs” into one of your big monsters on the same turn. If you do not get the spell card in your opening hand but you do one of the double tributers, then play them with cards that protect them for a turn.

Cards should be paid attention when attacking

"Mirror Wall", the most useful trap card in current card pool, do not target a monster. That means "Tyrant Dragon" cannot negate the effect of the trap card. Additionally, if your opponent uses a deck based on non-effect monsters, "Order to Charge" will easily destroy your high level monster.

  • I am having problem with flip effect monsters, what should i do?

    You may want to play at least two copies of “Overwhelm”as it will not only protect your dragons from flip effects/monster effects in general but it will also negate the activation of "Mirror Wall".

Best cards to counter

The flip effect returns a big monster to owner's hand.

Destroys a big monster if it attacks into this monster. Note that your opponent can also attack with low-level monsters.

Good to steal a dragon.

Tyrant Dragon cannot negate effect of this trap card since it does not target a monster.

I'm using 2 tyrant and 3 REBD on my tyrant dragon deck.
Looking back, this deck is complete trash. Nowadays you'd run Tyrant Dragon with Kidmodo Dragon and Totem Dragon with Anti-Magic Arrows and Super Rush Headlong. Also, why the 🔥 does it say that Blue-Eyes White Dragon is from Ultimate Rising?
"good to steal a dragon"

Is it a good idea if I add ceal for tyrant dragon for an possible OTK? With ceal, it does 3800 a turn instantly right?

Tyrant Dragon can attack 2 monsters, but cannot attack life points directly twice in a row

@Nikolay Yes he can with Ceal. His effect only requires the opponent to still have at least one monster on the field after his first attack. Go test it and see for yourself.

Can confirm, Ceal + Tyrant Dragon = 2 direct attacks on LP as long as opponent has at least 1 monster on the field. With Kaiba's Beatdown Skill, you can deal 4400 damage in one turn.

Uuuuuuu 3 mirror walls bruh
12 Ultra Rares? Go 🔥 yourself. How about this site builds realistic decks that don't cost a 🔥ing arm and a leg.

To be fair though, 2 are gained for free (1, after someone misses ALL those chances they give that pre-order BEWD away, but the other is still gained through duels vs Kaiba).

But yeah, 10 is still a lot.
I'm pretty sure if you have three mirror walls you can do almost anything else and still have a powerfull deck
Wtf. To many ultra rares
This exact deck is so OP.
Tyrant dragon is not fully immune to target based trap. My tyrant can get affected by curse of anubis, disappointing
Disapointed with your deck above...
Try to make Tyrant dragon + CEAL bow... and give me credits hehehe
they are 2x Attacks of 1900 ... or 2.100 if you use Seto's skill.... it's OTK! ;)
