KC Cup August LV MAX Deck

Akashiro - Amazoness

IGNSet SkillDate Submitted
AkashiroSwitcherooSept 10
♦ Akashiro:
I tried Holy Guard and Parasite Infestation as skills, but Switcheroo its what worked for me because of the poor consistency/budget of the deck, it power to not let you brick and it's the best at mirror duels.

Lava Golem, Canadia, Floodgate and Forbidden Chalice where pretty good against Fur Hires (and almost everything) but the real life saver for me in this deck was Fenghuang cause not oftern I found myself with useles/danger monters on my side of the field (Lava Golems, monsters with zero atk, Floodgated, etc.. ). Also, it has a great sinergy for plays with Amazoness Willpower and Onslaught.

Wall of disruption almost didn't worked against the other meta decks, so I would recommend trade 1 or 2 of them for more Floodgates or Canadias.

♦ azeem:
Alector is super easy to special summon in the current meta and it shuts down a lot of powerful abilities especially in the mirror match where it shuts down winz.

Caio - U.A & Masked HERO

IGNSet SkillDate Submitted
CaioCyber Style (U.A)Sept 3
Caio Switcheroo (Masked HERO)Sept 3
♦ Caio:
U.A. :
- This Deck of U.A. It proved to be consistently consistent despite only 1 UA stadium. Cyber style guarantees the summoning of monsters lvl 5+, Jinzo ends with amazoness, Dunker ends with FurHire. TTH and Paleozoic provide protection for OTK on the next turn.

Masked Hero:
- In this version of Hero deck I used the Fusion with the malicious to reduce the need for the 3rd Anki (I only have 2)
- It is a version with great synergy that eliminates magic cards and traps easily thanks to trunade, galaxy cyclone and cosmic cyclone, giving me advantage against Amazon and FurHire.

danielpclParasite InfectionSept 4
♦ danielpcl:
As the is still pretty much amazoness and heroes, you have a huge advantage against their warrior monsters. If they attack a Cipher Soldier with your Spikeshield set, you win in their first round. Parasite is good against almost everything, as it takes off one draw from your opponent and they take 1000 LP damage, and also can break a Fur Hire play. Lava Golemn and Amazoness Swordswoman are very tough to play against.

DAVE FZCyber StyleSept 6
I reach lvl 19 with 2 stadiums and 3 rival rebounder (i had no 3rd stadium), other biulds i used were:
- no kuriboh, 1 extra super rush, but the kuriboh is great because some skilled players just will atack on 4k+ damage to avoid cyberstyle (sphere is better of course but i only have 1)
- field commander rahz when i had no 3 miedfielders
- the immortal bushi because it could come back every time while you have no kuriboh/sangan in the GY and use it as tribute (but all this was before the 3rd miedfielder)

The superrush saved me in my forth game to DLv max because my rival had mighty slugger+stadium and i had just dunker with 2500. but i think Canadia is better, i just don't have even 1

Destyn - Transcendent Bujin

DestynTranscendent BujinSept 6
♦ Destyn:
The deck has a lot of power during todays meta but against dyna its almost an insta scoop, the ability to discard your bujins with the skill and draw off of them with rare value defilenty helps to draw into your beast warriors aswell as Yamato, and crystal raigeki is great against midfielder and the normal summon of fur hires, but if they have mayhem I always kinda panicked anywhom thats the deck

fabiantactic - XYZ Ojama

IGNSet SkillDate Submitted
fabiantacticLand of the OjamasSept 4
♦ fabiantactic:
How to use Deck (XYZ-Ojamas): This deck’s win condition is to use Ojamassimilation to bring out XYZ-Dragon Cannon and use its not once per turn destruction effect to wipe the opponent’s board. Following up with Armed Dragon LV3 results in an OTK.

Ojamatch is used to cycle through the deck and put out an Armed Dragon LV3 that is used to special summon Armed Dragon LV5 if desired. While putting Armed Dragon LV5 on the field is not always optimal (if you don’t have one of the XYZ-pieces in hand you won’t be able to make XYZ-Dragon Cannon if Armed Dragon LV5 is still on the field when Ojamassimilation is used), Armed Dragon LV5 is useful for being a 2400 atk body, being spot removal via its own effect, and can be returned to the hand by A Wingbeat of Giant Dragon to destroy all spell/traps on the field.

Union Scramble is good recovery/OTK enabler after XYZ-Dragon Cannon has successfully been summoned. The skill Land of the Ojamas is useful since Ojama Country can be sent off Ojamatch to search out Ojama Blue.

Ojama Country is also useful for reviving Ojama Blue, swapping atk/def, and making it easier for Armed Dragon LV5 to destroy certain monsters using its effect. I’d recommend taking out a normal Ojama for another A Wingbeat of Giant Dragon but was only playing one copy at the time of reaching DLv. Max.

Gaia Dragon! - Noble Knight

IGNSet SkillDate Submitted
Gaia Dragon!BalanceAug 31
♦ Gaia Dragon!:
When facing U.A., usually you set 'Glory of the Noble Knights' or a Thypoon / Wild Tornado to destroy Normal/Special summons of your opponent, but when you fight the U.A. your priority should be destroying the U.A. Stadium before any monster summon.
You went first, and your opponent is Zane/Ryo (Cyber Style skill), then summon Drystan alone or Medraut + Drystan, (Drystan with Noble Arms of Destiny Equiped), then you set BOTH of your traps, in this case a Typhoon and a Canadia, why? because U.A. is very agressive deck and usually carries 2-3 cosmic cyclone. As soon as your opponent activates U.A. stadium, you destroy it, because it means he has Midfielder in hand, if Midfielder is normal summoned the effect of U.A. stadium will activate and your opponent will get a high lvl U.A. from Deck to Hand. If your Typhoon/Tornado is removed with Cyclone, you use a Canadia on Midfield, so your opponent won't be able to Special summon due to Midfielder being face down. Midfielder alone is not a problem for Drystan and a shield equiped. Your main problem will be the Stadium and those 3 cosmic cyclones, remember that Cyber Style is easily used after their activation.

What about his Bandit skill? He steals your cards and can ruin everything! This so-called "skill" might as well be a hack!

Bye see you again sweetie.
Some terrible players just ask for nerfs all the time, they want all decks nerf´d.
But if a nerf really happens, they will say: ``oh they nerf decks because they want you to buy more, it's a cash grabber``.
How they never pay attention to the demans of those jerks who pretend to be players.

Also for those of you who don't know, chaining Typhoon/Wild Tornado/Twister/Double Cyclone/Cosmic Cyclone/Dust Tornado to the activation of SSA destroys it

Obviously cyclone banishes and is irrelevant to my point of destroying SSA before it protects itself so ignore that

This KC Cup is really messed. The RNG is wack in this game and possibly rigged. Also Dlv. 19 should be 3 wins and you move on not 5. Konami has a lot of work to do.

If i were you, i would spend that $ 50 in Duel Links to buy Tier 1 deck.
I don't think Amazoness are op, but yeah you guys are pretty much right about this: ``When a deck is meta for too long even after new boxes`` the deck is likely to be touched, yep. But it's done just to promote deck diversity, one the other hand I really disagree with the ban of onslaught, the card that SHOULD be limited is amazoness princess.
---Princess limited to 2
---Econ limited to 2
Problem solved

I say Onslaught @ 1 would be enough. Princess is really only good now for that +1, her second effect isn't as useful as it used to be with Baby it should be fine @ 3 as long as Onslaught goes to 1. E-Con should also be limited since it's still a game stealer (basically the same reason Brain Control was banned in TCG).

Amazon amazon amazon amazon masked HERO, FUR , FUR , Mazon amazon UA, Amazon, FUR , FUR :( :( :( i dont have any decks ( only fur hire and no good trap spells so) m dead in other words
I made it to Stage 2 with Tea Amazoness. *.* If I remember it correctly, normally you would need 3 wins at dlvl 20 to join stage 2, but I could play already for DP. Is this some change or was it because I was Stage 2 in the last KC Cup? Or did they just remove 'win 3 games in a row to join stage 2 while being dlvl 20'?

Yeah, I was 2 victories away from reaching DLV MAX and my last opponent was some jerk who just spend the whole duel wasting time, doing nothing, taking minutes to even draw. By the time I finally defeated the KC Cup was over, now I can't even report the prick for wasting time just to troll with people.

makes no sense, because it's you, yes you, the ones who keep whining about all decks in order to demand nerfs. In other words, it's you the ones who nerf decks, the bad players. Yep, the terrible players who always are complaining.

What do nerf gotta do with new cards? U are telling us every card u had shd stay op stong, or else no need for new cards. Is that what u meant? That's stupid logic tbh. If a card or a series of cards make game unbalanced, it get nerf, it's something very simple, you don't get it? New cards are for bringing new content to the game, u need to grow up kid.

You clearly care enough to make a post about it hypocrisy at its finest right here
I’m pretty sure even Jake Paul’s 5 year-old viewers can tell that it was fake
Looks like a good card to get rid of tuners, but doesn't seem to be very good
Terraforming but we don’t have that in duel links
