Ninja: deck recipe

Duel Links Top Story
Some new cards leaked!?
update 19/07/2017

Overview

This deck is more of a control type deck even though it has some potential to swarm. Ninjas use unusual effects that support each other well, making this deck somewhat unpredictable to duel against.

How to use this deck

Summon high-leveled ninjas

Ninjas aren't really strong in terms of attack, so it would be better to quickly summon your higher leveled monsters to start hitting harder.

  • Use Soul Exchange to tribute summon your monster by tributing one of your opponent's monster. This also serves as monster removal, but you will not be able to conduct your battle phase that turn.
  • Use Ninjitsu Art of Transformation to special summon Black Dragon Ninja from your hand or deck by tributing any of your level 4 ninja monsters.

Change enemy monsters to defense position

Changing opponent's battle position serves 2 purposes in this deck. First is to protect your monsters. And second is because your ninjas can destroy defense position monsters with card effects. Enemy Controller can also be used to take your opponent's monster to use as tribute and open for a direct attack. Be careful of using Curse of Anubis during your turn. Keep in mind that your ninjas are also effect monsters, therefore will also be changed to defense position if they are face-up.

Destroy defense position monsters

These two monsters are very important to this deck. Comboing these cards with changing your opponent's battle position will be your main method of monster removal.

  • Flip White Ninja to destroy a defense position monster on the field, but be careful so that you aren't forced to destroy your own monster.
  • Ninja Grandmaster Sasuke destroys any face-up defense position monster he battles.

Too much high level ninja. I would suggest using more flame armor and white ninja. Might also try turnabout maybe. It can combo well with white ninja reset him face down along with your opponent card and you can pop it the next turn. But yea its matter so personal preference I guess

Try this: 3 red armour ninja 2 sasuke 2 white ninja 1 duplication 3 transformation 1 each of senior silver, red dragon and black dragon That leaves space for 6 staples or whatever you want to do. I like mirror wall, e con, wind storm. (Only cause I don't have super rush headlong) Use a beat down Kaiba. This should get you to if not past platinum
Anon 17hour ago
I run this deck. First time I got to platinum. Well... Not THIS deck (the one above), this one is pretty trash. Fire armour ninja + Kaiba beatdown = 2000atk first turn. Then duplication to dodge any removal. Transformation to get Black/Red dragon ninja out. Have a silver armour ninja (the 6 star one, can't remember the name of it exactly) ready for tribute set so you can bring back the ninjas you have lost. Throw in e con and mirror walls, and you are golden.

Moral of the story. No, I have never lost to toons (not that they are a big threat as they are rare to see when climbing), red eyes and Phoenix are my bitches. Only time I have lost to either was when I bricked the first 8 cards of the game. And grave keepers aren't around to be a threat anymore either, but they aren't difficult to beat, because you can dodge with transit.ation or duplication.

curse of anubis, windstorm and sphere kuribo switch toon monsters to defense mode and sasuke gets rid of them. Your Econ and sphere kuribo argument is dumb. If toons don't get toon kingdom/table of contents/planet pathfinder they lose. If Red-eyes bricks, which is pretty common, they lose. If naturia doesn't get one it's two level monsters they run, they lose. See where I'm going with this ?

Who ever did the write up on this deck I feel didn't have much experience actually playing ninjas. The example deck is atrocious.

Hi thank you for your comment. We tried to make an affordable sample deck, that's why the deck doesn't look good.

Why you didn't put Damarian Gaming's deck which is better instead of this one?

@GameA1 totally understandable that you would post an affordable version of the deck, but it would also be helpful if you could post a deck that fully utilizes ninjas at their best. I appreciate what you guy's do though, thanks GameA! I hope the creator's of this app even out the current meta. Like WHY NOT LIMIT MIRROR WALL or you know even it out so its more fun.

Just put two examples like you do on farming decks. One F2P/cheap and one expensive. Ninjas are listed as expensive which is true but this example deck isn't expensive at all really. I'm F2P and I can build this one no problem.

I used Red Eyes and Phoenix deck to get KOG and I've never lost a single match against ninja decks. The deck is just not consistent and needs more support.

You are winning against Ninja decks because you are using the decks that counters them. Other than Phoenix and REBD combo, Ninja decks do really well against other decks.

Any Suggestions ?
Is Mind Scan or Restart an Option?
<< Anonymous(Dahakker)

Mind scan works here and it's better since you use 3 red ninja but I think you should get rid of one transformation art and add in storm to help clear your backrow because you will get clogged up and you destroy your opponents backrow as well.

This is a really good deck to try out cuz its cheap and gets me tons of wins

I am lucky enough to hit KOG using Ninjas with Mind Scan yesterday. Here is my thoughts on ninjas:

1. Red D. ninja wins countless duels for me.
2. Duplication and Transformation can give you OTK if your opponents don't have kuriboh.
3. You need at least 2 Transformations to bring the best out of ninjas.
4. Having kuribohs helps your win-rate against bad matchup such as Toons and Phoenix.

But yeah, it is pretty tough playing against Phoenix and REBD combo, especially Phoenix. Got demoted many times because of consecutive matches against Pheonix decks.

why not 2 dup instead of one (im talking about the normal ninja trap card from the new set) the old normal ninja trap from DoD is whack play with the new ninja traps and cards also get rid of crimson and armed ninja and add a 3rd red ninja and a 3rd flame ninja and add a 3rd econ or security orb

I got up to Legend 2 using my Ninja deck. Its really good but it struggles against Red Eyes and Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys . Sadly thats all people are playing in Legend along with toons so i wouldn't recommend trying to get KOG with Ninja
