This page notes Amazoness Deck profile, including essential cards and the best character and skill to use the deck.
Duel Links Breaking News
Banlist update has been announced!
update 01/08/2018

Overview

The Amazoness archetype received some amazing support lately with the addition of Amazoness Onslaught, Amazoness Queen and Amazoness Princess, making this deck actually very viable and consistent on the PvP ladder.

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

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 Heirloom & Amazoness Willpower

Now that we have access to Amazoness Princess, these cards have actually become much better. If you already have access to Amazoness Onslaught, you could use Princess’ her effect to search one of these cards instead.

Amazoness Willpower is included instead of another copy of Powerful Rebirth because this card can also bring back Amazoness Queen from the graveyard, also it’s second effect that obligates your Amazoness monster to attack each battle phase isn’t as awful now when paired up with Amazoness Queen.

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.

This card is now even better because you can also special summon Amazoness Queen with it (Onslaught does not have a level restriction).

Amazoness Queen

This is the new level up reward from Mai. This is the only monster with a level higher than 4 in this deck, which doesn’t pose a problem since she can be special summoned from the hand with Amazoness Onslaught, or special summoned from the deck thanks to Amazoness Princess. She has an amazing effect that makes all your Amazoness monsters invincible in battle (but they can still be destroyed through effects like Sylvan Marshalleaf).

A great way to make your board is to summon Amazoness Princess at the start to search out Amazoness Onslaught, and when you attack a monster with a higher attack (while Amazoness Onslaught is activated) you can discard a card to special summon Queen in defense position, so your Princess won’t be destroyed, but their monster will be banished.

Because your monsters can’t be destroyed by battle you do run the risk of your opponent attacking the same weak monster over and over (like Baby Tiger) to remove all your life points, so be careful with what you decide to put in attack position.

Her effect also protects herself from being destroyed in battle.

Amazoness Princess

This card alone will probably be able to put this deck on the tier list. When she is summoned you can add an Amazoness spell or trap from your deck to your hand, most of the time you’ll pick up Amazoness Onslaught, however if you already have one in the hand or on the field you might want to pick up an Amazoness Heirloom or Amazoness Willpower.

Her second effect allows you to summon 1 Amazoness monster from your deck in defense position whenever she attacks, you do need to discard one card to activate this effect. This is a great way to search out your only copies of Amazoness Queen or Baby Tiger. You’ll probably first want to search Amazoness Queen, but if you already have her, Baby Tiger is a great way to gain card advantage as well since he keeps coming back from the Graveyard.

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, this is why Holy Guard could be a great choice as a skill.

Amazoness Sage & Amazoness Paladin

We settled on these two ladies for our main attackers.

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

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 Amazoness Queen, 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).

Enemy Controller

As we all know, overall Enemy Controller is an excellent card and always has been, but it has extra synergy with this deck thanks to Baby Tiger. If you have a Baby Tiger on the field, you could tribute-take one of your opponent’s monsters, then summon another Amazoness monster and bring back Baby Tiger once again, giving you a full board.

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.

  • 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).

  • Since we can search out Amazoness Onslaught with Princess , people might find that running only 2 copies of Onslaught is better, however this is difficult to know at this time since there is also a lot of backrow hate being used, and people might start using more copies of Cosmic Cyclone if this deck becomes too dominent.

  • If you are looking for a great card to counter Amazoness deck, try out Chaos Hunter. She will stop the banishing effect and can be easily summoned since Amazoness decks special summon a lot.

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 Swords Woman
Amazoness Swords Woman
Can be devastating when paired with Amazoness Queen since she won’t be able to die in battle and she’ll continue to do damage to your opponent.
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.
Impenetrable Attack
Impenetrable Attack
Protects your monster from being destroyed by battle giving you more utility out of Amazoness Onslaught. Can also negate battle damage for a whole battle phase in desperate situations.

Thanks. I usually use Balance with Amazoness, but I just don't see how I can make it work with 6 monsters. So I had to get creative. Sometimes it can work really well against the fur hires and other good decks, though.

I imagine that some people were put off with having to duel Balance using Aster with 3 onslaughts and his snotty lines that got activated twice as much thanks to the skill and continuous traps. But I think it was way cooler than Endless Trap Hell and bugs Odion and Weevil using this all of the time.

I made it with Teaness to Dlv 20 during the KC Cup to go to second stage. Sadly not during the Special Duels(to inconsistent due the requirements).
Let's hope Zane will get the real support for his archetypes so he isn't depending on already Meta decks!

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 :/
<< Anonymous

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
<< Anonymous

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

Cyclone help against SSA - same for Onslaught.
Destruction work not(or only in a chain/missing piece of the combo) against Onslaught it never fail.
Just because SSA need a lot more resources in first turn(s) and need (big parts) from a Mainbox make it somewhat scare and later the SB area denied them being meta.

It’s just as cancerous as sylvan was. I think it’s the new trend, release one cancerous deck after another to keep people spending to get the latest cancer. Konami must be running out of money due to making their game shitter and shitter with every update, so they’re trying a new shit tactic. They’re smart the way they release the cards they do, but it’s all for their gain, this happens to every game eventually, inevitable.

lol if Princess is added the decks becomes meta. The trap card that banishes just needs a searcher
<< Anonymous(Edo)
Anonymous 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.
<< Anonymous(Edo)

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
Anonymous Reply
...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

And they will get space for special summon as you need to destroy/banish them to hit their lifepoints.

But you cant get through with all the special summon, effects and backrow.

They have an overabundance of tools to more or less counter every situation.

Amazoness is good for skilless player. But a skilled player have much better win rate.
Low ranked don't summon at battle phase or use Princess Combo to do OTK when they have a chance.
I haven't use Fur Hire yet, but played against it a few time. It have better chance in FH vs Amazoness. But not a 100%. (Amazoness must trick FH by set spell and trap tatically to have about 20-30% winrate).
Limit onslaught.
Onslaught needs a limit.

Amazones onslaught needs to be limited to at least 2 or make it share limited with an important amazone card.

Having it at 3 makes it overkill.
It is way too disruptive in this meta.
The deck is the most played too.

3x princess to search for it.
-It banishes on contact.
-It special summons in battle phase (multiple monsters if you have multiple onslaught and multiple monsters in your hand).
-it special summons from the grave on destruction.

Add cards like amazones willpower to this to get princess back and another onslaught and you will face multiple onslaughts right from the start that you have to go through, but its unlikely that you can do that so quick.

With queen and their crazy flooding potential or with their crazy flooding potential alone they can just banish exchange your monsters and have monsters left to attack your lp.

Even if you get their life low they can still kamikaze into you to banish with holy guard or amazones swordswoman.

Do something about this deck to balance it some.

Well, Amazoness are kicking ass right now so either you jump on the bandwagon and play the deck as well or forget about hitting KOG this season unless you have SSA (which will lose to sylvan, CA and Masked). Duel Links meta is insane this month and I don't know what to expect from the WCS qualifiers especially beacause Konami will probably release another main box before the qualifiers starts.

Surprisingly my old Relinquished Deck is doing very well against this. I was frustrated by the kamikaze style banishing effect for a couple days, and when I switched up my decks for fun in PvP I found good success. Still struggle against certain decks but running into a lot of Amazoness since it's the flavor of the month.
