Overview

The Amazoness archetype received some amazing support with the addition of Amazoness Onslaught. Something important to note however is that we know Elegant Mai is making a return in early May, and from the latest datamines we know Amazoness Princess is added to the game, however we do not yet know if Amazoness Princess will be unlockable or not but it’s safe to assume Elegant Mai will bring with her some new Amazoness Support. If Amazoness Princess is unlockable that would be amazing because it would make the deck more consistent (you could search your Amazoness Onslaught with her). Also the level cap will be increased later this month, so it’s possible that we will get more Amazoness cards by leveling up Mai, who knows maybe Amazoness Village will be obtainable?!

If Amazoness do get new support that would be included in this deck we will revisit this guide when the time comes.

How to Use

Amazoness right now seem like a good rogue deck. There are a lot of people playing Sylvans so more and more people are picking up a deck that does well against it, like Cyber Angels with Saffira, and this deck has an amazing win rate against Cyber Angels. It also does well against Destiny Heroes (which now run Masked Hero Anki). However it has a hard time against Geargias because they can take out your monsters and backrow without attacking.

Amazoness Onslaught

The main goal of this deck is to start out with Amazoness onslaught and start banishing your opponent’s monsters with its effect, that’s why you use Restart or Balance to raise that consistency.

Amazoness Onslaught’s effect will activate after the damage calculations, even if your monster was destroyed by battle, which means the way this card is countered is with cards like Super Rush Headlong. This card’s effect activates even if it was your opponent who attacked, so if you don’t have enough life points you can put your monsters in defense and still banish your opponent’s monsters.

This card also has two other effects. The first one being that you can special summon 1 Amazoness monster during your battle phase and it will gain 500 atk this turn if you do so. This means that if you have this card on the field, and an Amazoness monster in your hand, it’s best to not normal summon during your main phase, but rather go to your battle phase and then special summon it for that attack increase. You can also use this effect during your opponent’s battle phase, this can be very useful for survival. Keep in mind however that this effect can not be activated during the damage step, so if your opponent attacks and you want to special summon an Amazoness monster you need to summon it during the battle step.

Its third and last effect is that when this card you control is destroyed, you can special summon an Amazoness monster from your graveyard. So even if your opponent gets rid of this card , you get some last use out of it.

Amazoness Baby Tiger

Another new Amazoness card from the latest box. This card can be special summoned from your hand or graveyard whenever you summon an Amazoness monster. Now the most important part about this card is that it can be special summoned from your graveyard, meaning you can bring this card back over and over again and crash it into your opponent’s monsters (while Onslaught is on the field) to gain card advantage, and use your bigger Amazoness monsters to attack your opponent directly.

Only one copy is included because having too much can make you brick, and you really only need one to use multiple times.

This card does have a very low attack, so you’ll have to be careful with your life points if you attack with this monster.

Amazoness Sage, Amazoness Swordswoman & Amazoness Paladin

We settled on these three ladies for our main attackers.

If you do not have 3 copies of Amazoness Paladin you could replace her with Amazoness Fighter or Amazoness Tiger.

Amazoness Swordswoman seems to be the most important one of these three, her effect alone can win games even if you don’t have Amazoness Onslaught. You can keep her alive with Impenetrable attack for more damage. You can attack monsters in defense position (for example if you used Curse of Anubis) to make your opponent lose life points, and even bring her back with Powerful Rebirth.

Amazoness Paladin is here for her high attack, she will always at least have 1800 attack, but she can get up to 2000 maximum which gets over the most popular level 4 drops.

The only way you’ll get use out of Amazoness Sage’s effect is if she is paired up with Impenetrable attack, if she can attack directly, or if you used Windstorm/Curse of Anubis and attack a monster in defense position because in most situations her attack will be lower than all other level 4 monsters (even the level 4 destiny Heroes have more attack).

Impenetrable Attack

Besides Amazoness Onslaught, this seems to be one of the core traps you could use in this deck. This card allows you to get more use out of Amazoness Onslaught, get in more damage through Amazoness Swordswoman’s effect, make your Amazoness Sage invincible so you can use her effect to destroy backrow and also protects against one of the main counters, Super Rush Headlong. There is just so much synergy in this deck it would be a shame not to run it.

You can also use this card’s effect to take 0 battle damage when you crash in with your Amazoness Baby Tiger.

Windstorm of Etaqua & Curse of Anubis

Although there might be more expensive, better spells/traps, we wanted to feature these cards in our list to make the deck cheaper but also explain why they should be considered and can be amazing.

Normally if you attack a monster in attack position, or your opponent attacks your monster, both will be removed from the field (one is destroyed by battle and the other is banished by Onslaught), so you basically go one for one. However if you can get a Windstorm/Curse of Anubis of against multiple of your opponent monsters, you can then attack into them on your next turn, and because they will be in defense position, your monsters will survive, and theirs will be banished, giving you a lot of card advantage if used at the right time.

Additional Notes

  • Although our version uses two copies of Powerful Rebirth you can use a more budget version with only one copy.

  • Amazoness Heirloom was also included in the latest box, however this card really isn’t that good and doesn’t add much to the deck, so although in theory it might seem great, in reality it’s useless against the same cards/effects that counter Amazoness Onslaught like Super Rush Headlong. You are better of running other defensive spells/traps.

  • More copies of Amazoness Paladin can be picked up with the UR tickets you get from doing PvP.

  • Other good spells/traps to use with this deck would be cards like Ultimate Providence/Forbidden Chalice, mostly to negate the effect of Sylvans, but because you run a lot of traps, Ultimate Providence can be used to negate an opponent’s trap.

  • With balance, if you want to start (100% of the time) with at least one card of a certain type (monster/spell/trap) you need to run 6 in a 20 card deck. If you want at least two, you need to run 11 in a 20 card deck. So if you run 11 monsters and 9 traps you would be 100% sure to start with 2 monsters and 1 trap (the fourth card will be random).

Other Useful Cards

CardExplanation
Amazoness Tiger
Amazoness Tiger
A great amazoness card that can get its attack quite high, however keep in mind you cannot control this card and Amazoness Baby Tiger at the same time because they are both treated as Amazoness Tiger, and you can only control one at a time.
Amazoness Fighter
Amazoness Fighter
This card kind of is a weaker version of Amazoness Swordswoman, because both make you not take any battle damage, however Swordswoman inflicts that damage on your opponent.
Amazoness Archer
Amazoness Archer
Although it might be situation most times, this card can come in clutch. Imagine having an Amazoness monster with Onslaught on the field, and you have Impenetrable Attack available, you could force your opponent to attack with all monsters meaning they would all be banished.
Half Shut
Half Shut
Has the same purpose as Impenetrable Attack, but has additional synergy with Amazoness Swordswoman.

Not only the search effect, but its GY banish effect lets you attack all of your opponents stuff (with swordsoman? 0-0), which could be banished with onslaught.... if we got this and queen, yay us

If Queen comes this deck could become tier 0.

We want new HARPIE cards for her when she comes back/level cap increases NOT more amazons like the last time she appeared and leveled up :/

I'm not saying the harpie cards are bad, they're just not enough to boost them to tier 1. Maybe tier 2, but not tier 1. If they were added they would be able to swarm like crazy, but their stats aren't as big as you think, nor do they have any monster removal outside of harpist (which just returns it to the hand-great vs extra deck monster, but not so much anything else)

You have spells and traps cards buddy.You have feather storm for sylvans. you have icarus attack for all, you have fast sums with both hysteric.
Geargianchor? xDDDDDD HHG +200, harpie lady 1 + 300. That's enough for queen, harpist, chaneller and cyber harpie to outdamage him.
If you clear the field with change set Anki becomes a free targed for every trap or spell card.

Btw can i get the point of Dakini with 3,7k? So instead using the free benten that you will get for sum Idaten you use Idaten for the ritual? Leaving the field free with just dakini? O.O So basically if u got walled mirror or e-con second effect rip dakini? Or well in this case Icarus. After that Chaneller + dancer + any of hysteric and rip xD

First of all, icarus attack is a generic winged beast support card, not a harpie card. Second of all i was talking about geargianchor's EFFECT, not its stats (i did say that geargias have bad stats). I did forget about featherstorm, and if that card got added harpies might be tier 1 after all. And lol @ what you said about dakini so much..there is generic s/t negation/removal in this game you know

So apparently amazoness princess is more likely to be a level up reward rather than a box card/event reward... which is a real shame, this deck would really like 3 copies of princess... Pet liger (a fusion monster) is also apparently going to be a level up reward, but that card is meh compared to empress (the other amazoness fusion monster)

Not gonna lie this deck is pretty bad. Onslaught is by far the best amazoness card in the game right now, why are you only running two? Also Archers and fighting spirit just arent worth running, even thought theyre amazoness cards theyre just too terrible to use, especially archers.

Also in continuation with my previous comment, use powerful rebirth instead of amazoness willpower, yes amazoness love recursion but there arent any level 5 or higher amazoness in the game right now so powerful rebirth is just better. Also i would suggest running ultimate providence, it combos really well with baby tiger (which you want to run 3 of)

Have 3 onslaught. Don't use shaman, archer, and fighting spirit. Put in baby tiger 2 minimum they are good in conjunction with onslaught. If you have powerful rebirth add them if not your willpower is sufficient. Maybe add impenetratable attack it is also good with onslaught and to counter SSA/Super Rush. Take out tiger by the way if you want to run baby tiger. And enemy controller is good too.

Thanks for your advice btw i use archers for combo with onslaugt cuz it force all their card to attack even in the defense position and i just set 1 cuz they can be use at the same time.

Here's my deck. It's good so far. In case anyone can't see (I'm afraid the screenshot will come out too small from the Steam version), it is: 3 Amazoness Swordswoman, 3 Amazoness Sage, 2 Amazoness Fighter, 1 Amazoness Baby Tiger, 1 Amazoness Paladin, 1 Amazoness Trainee, 3 Amazoness Onslaught, 1 Amazoness Heirloom, 1 Impenetrable Attack, 1 Half Counter, 1 Amazoness Willpower, 1 Windstorm of Etaqua, 1 Enemy Controller

Here is what i would do to change the deck: add 2 more baby tigers (by far the best amazoness monster when combo'd with onslaught), replace willpower for powerful rebirth (doesn't make you attack every turn and can the thing u revive can be in defence) get rid of heirloom for another defensive s/t (heirloom only works once per turn, while cards like SRH/ impenetrable attack last the entire turn)
<< Anonymous

Thanks for the input! I'm going to add at least one more baby tiger and then see how it's working before I try 3. I haven't been able to get Powerful Rebirth yet, so Willpower is temporary. It is definitely on my "to get" list for this and another deck, though. Heirloom is more of a wild card since I haven't been able to test it yet. But if it ends up not helping a lot, I will ditch it.

Obligatory ‘If it doesn’t work against SRH, does that mean it doesn’t work against SSA?’ Which I’m assuming is so
<< Anonymous(Turbo)

With Onslaught to banish the monsters and Amazoness Sage, it can counter SSA nicely. I beat someone using SSA not long ago and it was fun.
<< Anonymous(Turbo)

If you were referring to Heirloom, I have not been able to test that out yet. In general, I do understand why it might not be considered as good for this deck. If you already have Onslaught and one other continuous spell/trap on your field and in your deck, you probably don't want to clog up the whole field. I use Heirloom right now, but I try to make sure I always have one open s/t zone left.

lol if Princess is added the decks becomes meta. The trap card that banishes just needs a searcher
<< Anonymous(Edo)
Anonymous 9days ago Reply
The reason why it would be so great if both of them were added is the following: normal summon princess, search and set onslaught, attack with princess, princess's effect activates, discard baby tiger, S. summon queen from deck, baby tiger's effect activates & s. summons itself from grave, and because queen is on the field it doesnt matter if the opponent has a higher atk monster than princess.

In continuation with my previous comment, since princess ups the deck's consistency, you could use holy guard, meaning that you wouldnt lose any lp if you attack something big either. Note how this entire combo requires you only needing ONE CARD in your hand to pull off
<< Anonymous

...oops, I realize how dumb my previous comment sounded lol. It requires only one card if you already have a baby tiger in your GY, since you can either discard or tribute a monster for amazoness princess's effect to S. Summon an amazoness from the deck. Still, even if it technically* requires 2 cards, its still really consistent to pull of in a 20 card deck
