How to Use

Initial Setup

Amazoness Princess
Amazoness Princess
EARTH Warrior ★3
ATK 1200 / DEF 900
Mai Valentine [UR]
This card's name becomes "Amazoness Queen" while on the field or in the GY. If this card is Normal or Special Summoned: You can add 1 "Amazoness" Spell/Trap from your Deck to your hand. You can only use this effect of "Amazoness Princess" once per turn. When this card declares an attack: You can send 1 other card from your hand or field to the GY; Special Summon 1 "Amazoness" monster from your Deck in Defense Position, except "Amazoness Princess".

Your first priority upon summoning Princess is to search and set Onslaught. If you already have Onslaught onhand you can use this search to get Willpower.

Next step is to get Queen. If Queen is still in your deck, declare an attack with Princess to search out Queen, do this even if your opponent's monster is stronger. If Queen is in your hand, do not attack yet unless unless attacking into a weaker monster.

After searching Queen the next monster you want onboard is Swords Woman.

As you can see, Amazoness Princess is essential to quickly and consistently set up your board so running 3 copies is a must.

Amazoness Onslaught
Amazoness Onslaught
Continuous Trap
Valiant Souls [R]
Once per turn, during the Battle Phase: You can Special Summon 1 "Amazoness" monster from your hand, and if you do, it gains 500 ATK until the end of this turn (even if this card leaves the field). After damage calculation, if your "Amazoness" monster battled an opponent's monster while this card is already face-up in your Spell & Trap Zone: You can banish that opponent's monster. If this card on the field is destroyed and sent to the GY: You can target 1 "Amazoness" monster in your GY; Special Summon it.

Onslaught does a lot for Amazoness decks and is the key to this deck's power, but unfortunately it is limited so we can only run one copy.

The ability to Special Summon an Amazoness from your hand lets you easily put Queen onboard. Additionally this lets you swarm the field with Amazoness monsters, which in turn increases your damage potential and the efficiency of Onslaught's removal effect. The ATK boost from this Special Summon is significant enough that you might want to hold off Normal Summon your Amazoness during the Main Phase, if you only have one Amazoness monster onhand.

Onslaught's removal effect is its best feature, giving you access to non-targeting, non-destruction, banishing removal. This form of removal is still quite relevant to this day, the only downside is being tied to a Continuous Trap makes it vulnerable to backrow removal.

The floating effect is also great although it's not worth destroying Onslaught. If this happens you might want to revive Amazoness Swordswoman to push some damage, because at this point it becomes much harder to win.

Amazoness Queen

Amazoness Queen
Amazoness Queen
EARTH Warrior ★6
ATK 2400 / DEF 1800
Mai Valentine [SR]
"Amazoness" monsters you control cannot be destroyed by battle.

She is the only monster with a level higher than 4 in this deck, which isn't really a problem since she can be special summoned from the hand with Onslaught's effect, or special summoned from the deck with Princess' effect.

Queen's battle protection effect compliments Onslaught by protecting your Amazoness monsters when they crash into stronger monsters. This means your monsters won't be destroyed while Onslaught banishes your opponent's monsters. And with the Holy Guard Skill crashing into your opponent's monsters won't even damage you, so you are free to attack and banish without losing anything.

Amazoness Willpower

Amazoness Willpower
Amazoness Willpower
Continuous Trap
Mai Valentine [SR]
Select 1 "Amazoness" monster in your Graveyard and Special Summon it in Attack Position. It cannot change its battle position and must attack if able. When this card is removed from the field, destroy that monster. When that monster is destroyed, destroy this card.

Amazoness Willpower is favored over other revival options such as Powerful Rebirth because of its ability to bring back Amazoness Queen. Also, it’s second effect that obligates your Amazoness monster to attack each battle phase is somewhat mitigated when paired up with Amazoness Queen and Amazoness Onslaught.

Amazoness Swordswoman

Amazoness Swords Woman
Amazoness Swords Woman
EARTH Warrior ★4
ATK 1500 / DEF 1600
Mai Valentine [SR]
Your opponent takes all Battle Damage that you would have taken from a battle involving this card.

Swords Woman has a unique effect that gives you a way of dealing damage through stronger monsters. This is complimented by Queen's battle protection, letting you crash Swords Woman into stronger monsters to deal damage and not get destroyed. Add Onslaught to this combo and the resulting effect seems really unfair to your opponent.

The reflected battle damage can sometimes even steal you some wins in tough situations.

Protect Amazoness Onslaught

Onslaught is one of the most important cards to this deck's strategy and the fact that we can only run 1 copy makes running this deck extremely risky. Your opponent can greatly weaken your deck by simply removing Onslaught. Because of this we run tech cards that will help us keep Onslaught on the board.

Mana Dragon Zirnitron
Mana Dragon Zirnitron
DARK Dragon ★6
ATK 2200 / DEF 1200
Tornado of Phantoms [SR]
If a Spell/Trap you control leaves the field because of an opponent's effect, and is now in the GY or banished (except during the Damage Step): You can Special Summon this card from the GY (if it was there when that Spell/Trap left) or hand (even if not), then you can Set 1 Spell/Trap that is banished or in your GY to your Spell & Trap Zone. You can only use this effect of “Mana Dragon Zirnitron” once per turn. If Summoned this way, banish this card when it leaves the field.

Keep Zirnitron onhand in case your opponent removes Onslaught. When it does happen Special Summon Zirnitron and retrieve Onslaught, this works for both banish and removal that sends to the graveyard. If you have 2 empty monster zones you can Special Summon Zirnitron and also use Onslaught's floating effect.

U.A. Perfect Ace
U.A. Perfect Ace
EARTH Warrior ★5
ATK 1500 / DEF 2500
Valhalla Calling [SR]
You can Special Summon this card (from your hand) by returning 1 "U.A." monster you control to the hand, except "U.A. Perfect Ace". You can only Special Summon "U.A. Perfect Ace" once per turn this way. Once per turn, during your opponent's turn, when a card or effect is activated: You can discard 1 card; negate that activation, and if you do, destroy it (this is a Quick Effect).

Perfect Ace will usually be Special Summoned by Warrior Lady of the Wasteland. He can negate any effect at the cost of a discard, but this effect can only be used once per turn so reserve it for protecting Onslaught.

Another weakness is you can only use his negation effect during the opponent's turn. This still leaves Onslaught vulnerable to removal during your turn.

Warrior Lady of the Wasteland

Warrior Lady of the Wasteland
Warrior Lady of the Wasteland
EARTH Warrior ★4
ATK 1100 / DEF 1200
Kings Resonance [R]
Valhalla Calling [R]
When this card is destroyed by battle and sent to the Graveyard: You can Special Summon 1 EARTH Warrior-Type monster with 1500 or less ATK from your Deck, in face-up Attack Position.

Warrior Lady of the Wasteland can Special Summon most of the monsters in this deck. Special Summon Princess to setup your field, Swords Woman for pushing damage, or Perfect Ace to protect Onslaught.

Since you want the previously mentioned monsters to be alive when your turn comes, you can keep Special Summoning Warrior Lady to stall attacks until you are sure the opponent has no attacks left. (Not recommended against Lunalight decks and Invoked Purgatrio)

Weaknesses

  • Your Amazoness are quite vulnerable to battle traps. With Queen making your Amazoness indestructible, one Wall of Disruption can leave you with a field of useless monsters. Drowning Mirror Force is also a threat.
  • The lack of extra copies of Onslaught or methods of recovering Onslaught make running this deck very risky.
  • Your monsters generally have low ATK putting you at risk of taking severe damage during the opponent's turn.

Other useful cards

A straight upgrade over Warrior Lady of the Wasteland, just more expensive.

Since Amazoness are battle focused, you will want to remove your opponent's battle traps.

I think that some players who weren't around during the amazoness meta misunderstand some things like how the queen works exactly. Or they don't read everything. But even worse was a duel against blue-eyes where they WODed the swordswoman and then fell for my bluff and wasted an econ to flip her into attack position while she had 0 atk after I had switched her to defense.

It's impressive how dumb YGO players can be. Everyone can make a misplay, but, like, at least try to read the cards. Swordswoman as a card rather than full Amazoness deck is widely used even today.

marauding captain worth it in this deck?
Yami Aster 22days ago
Here's mine:
3 amazoness princess
2 amazoness swordswoman
1 amazoness queen
1 amazoness baby tiger
1 red sparrow summoner
1 vision hero witch raider
1 amazoness onslaught
1 amazoness willpower
2 ballista squad
2 paleozoic canadia
1 paleozoic hallucigenia
1 fiendish chain
1 karma cut
2 floodgate trap hole
Skill- Bring it!
You can use baby tiger and the paleozoic as monsters to also help use ballista squad, as well as for fodder for vision hero witch raider. The only thing I'm not sure of is whether I should switch out karma cut for something else.

If they think 2 onslaughts are enough to bring this deck back to meta, I am here to tell Konami that they are wrong. There is no reason why they can't let up on this deck more. Same with cyber angels. They are just being stingy and don't want people having access to too many semi-decent cheaper decks.

Yesterday, I defeated shiranui and blue-eyes with this. But I think that was only because they really didn't understand some of the card effects of amazoness...

What's the point of decks that just can't be beaten, being completely invincible other than against Fur Hire? It's mindless and stupid, and not fun at all to win 99,999999% of the time.

It was just too hard to make it lose before the nerfs. It's degenerate when you use a deck with a chance of winning that's too close to 99%. I used to deal with Onslaught through destroying it, but it was so hard to win because there was a second and a third and also a second and a third searcher for it.

This deck really should have it's bans lifted as the powercreep of other decks are more than enough to handle this deck. You want swords ban? fine i get that for burn decks, but princess and onsaulght don't need to be anymore.

Too much relying on same card (wall, fiendish chain, floodgate). 100% your opponent doesn't have chance to fight back

Still wondering why onslaught being limited while Dark Magician Circle roaming free. Onslaught at very least require you to attack to banish, and only a monster on the top of it
