A very versatile deck that can control the field and swarm it with your monsters. What makes this deck unique is it's ability to bring powerful monsters and support cards straight out of your deck. The skill Three-Star Demotion allows you to normal summon and set high-leveled monsters without needing to tribute.

How to use

Special Summon Ninjas

Ninjitsu Art of Transformation and Ninjitsu Art of Duplication are also excellent cards to dodge your oppnent's effects or if you want to gain extra attacks that battle phase.

Get rid of opponent's cards

Almost every monster in this deck has an effect that can get rid of cards on your opponent's field.

  • Black Dragon Ninja is the strongest monster in your deck, and it can also remove monsters on the field from play. This can be used to remove your opponent's monster and open for a direct attack, or, in some situations, used on your own monster to dodge effects.
  • Red Dragon Ninja, when summoned, returns a set card your opponent controls to either the top or bottom of their deck. This could be very effective at stopping your opponent because you can return a would-be-useless card to the top of their deck preventing them from gaining new resources. Additionally, your opponent cannot activate the targeted card in response.
  • Crimson Ninja should always be played face-down so that you can destroy or at least check your opponent's backrow. But do not set Crimson Ninja if your opponent does not have any cards in their backrow, because you will be forced to destroy yours.

Ninjitsu Spells

  • Ninjitsu Art Notebook is one of the key cards of this deck, with it you are able to search out any ninja support card from your deck. Use it with Armor Ninjitsu Art of Alchemy for excellent deck milling.
  • Ninjitsu traps tend to stay on the field because you frequently tribute your monsters, clogging up your spell/trap zones. Use Armor Ninjitsu Art of Alchemy to free up space and draw 2 cards.

I’ve always wanted to build a Ninja deck, and now that I have, it’s been doing wonders for me in the KC cup. Love this deck!

Ninja Vs CA?

Cyber angels will always lose if they go first, it's around a 65-35 matchup in favor of CA if they go second (assuming the player knows what they are doing and don't go for immediate otk/cripple their hand)

Do you need 3 transformations for an optimal ninja deck with high lvl ninjas?

Or does transformation x2 work fine too?

The best is two transformations. You can see the deck from Dkayed (1st in KC).

Dkayed used 3 transformations. Besides, why would a Ninja deck be better with 2 transformation instead of 3? Makes no sense.

Is this really the best variant of this deck? Of all of the ninja's ive seen none run this version.

Maybe time to update it.

Practically always win if you go first turn. I think this version of ninjas is really underrated and will be a top contender
