A comment from GNCell:
Description: As usual, karakuri consistency is the best architype i used so far as it had fast drawing mechanism. I mix those important spell and trap in two copy. It work well in countering different type of deck. I feel floodgate is better than canadia as it dont target monster. Stardust dragon is to counter yubel deck. Offering to doom is good when fight with anti trap deck which run balance. Cosmic cyclone is good against ancient gear, it prevent my opponent in summoning AG boss monster.

A comment from Photon Jet:
I was so happy after I earned the title of King of Games for the first time. I remembered playing a Karakuri deck about 8 years ago so I was so glad they're a strong and fun archetype to play to this day.

Anyway, the strong point of Karakuris to me is the draw power from Karakuri Anatomys. The best case scenario is to first summon Ninishi, then activate a Karakuri Anatomy before either activating Level Augmentation to summon Inashichi, the merchant to add Karakuri Cash Cache for another Ninishi copy, or summon a Level 4 Karakuri monster due to its effect. Once Shogun comes out, the option in most cases is to Special Summon a Level 4 Karakuri monster in Defense mode for Shogun to change it to Attack position.

I put a Karakuri Ninja in the deck because I do need a monster to deal with Destiny Hero Decider and those who cannot be destroyed by battle from 1900 ATK+ monsters. Putting Counters on Anatomys is the key to give yourself a hand advantage and prepare for what the opponent could do.

I could stop set-ups with Canadias, banish cards in the back row with Cosmic Cyclones or straight up destroy monsters that pose a big threat with Offerings to the Doomed and Treacherous Trap Hole. Armades is very helpful for safe attacks and stopping Yubel Fire King decks before Yubel comes to the field and Giganticastle is to overpower most Ancient Gear decks (except Ultimate Ancient Gear Golem which is troublesome).

One thing to point out is most of my opponents were unaware that Karakuris can switch to Defense position when attacked, which leaves them off-guard. That's why it is important to have a look at every card's effect before conducting an action. Just keep that in mind.

Overall, Karakuris to me are great fun and I think you should have a go with them too. You'll be surprised how well they can do when constructed correctly.

A comment from Kortezzy:
Canadia were for protection, I tried sphere kuriboh but faced too many Ancient Gears.

The other monster such as ice are for Yubel, Silent Magician, or other hard to kill monsters or difficult game situations.


  • Try to set up a wall to stop spells such as diamond core and things that can destroy geartown.

  • For stall try to set urknight to bait amonzoness. Also try to save ice and trunade for a mid/game push.

Finally, use grit to see what your
opponent will do and set canadia or a monster if you think they have game.

R.HThe Tie that BindsMarch 5

A comment from R.H:

Note: Plat is very hard this season, it took me more than 100 games just so that I can get to legend, and it took me about 20 games to reach KOG.

Legend right now is all about Dinos, I played against 3 mirror match, 1 stall and 1 AG.

Dinos are so strong right now because of survival’s end and if you don’t have a diamond core there is 90% chance that you’ve lost the game. I lost a couple of rank ups due to dinos.

1 prismatic and 2 glossy diamond. Koaki post nerf, I think winged kuriboh and trap stun is a good idea, u should try.

A comment from a_ndra12:

After konami's banlist announcement, I tried to KOG this session with my first and final Ko'aki deck. Faced too many Dinos and Mirror match, I prefer to use Sealed Tomb.

Against Dino, you must use the skill effectively. If you are not sure you can OTK them in your current turn, just activated Sealed Tomb so you don't lose your resource for next turn. Don't force to ATK if you don't any resource to make your game, except you want to play with their backrow. Don't worry Sphere Kuriboh will save your LP. In addition, Hey Trunade helps me lot to wipe out their backrows.

Against Mirror Match, Sealed tomb help me to prevent opponent banish their diamond core, so they must pay the cost with all their resources or let their monster destroyed. Again, Sphere Kuriboh is MVP for this match.

Against Ancient Gear, Sealed Tomb and Kuriboh are useless. The key is you must faster than them. Use Ko'aki Meiru Ice to destroy AG Reactor Dragon and Ko'aki Meiru Wall to prevent any spell destruct their Geartown/Fortress. I reccommend you to replace Kuriboh with Canadia if you often face AG.

TataohThe Tie that BindsMarch 25

A comment from Tataoh:

Just a very standard version of Koa'ki meiru deck that works very good in this meta
The skill used is the tie that binds, which is very useful in the mirror duels.

Yubel gets destroyed just summoning ice. Ancient gear can't summon because I run only one set. Even dinos get beaten easily using diamond core effects.

Going first with this deck could be an issue, but playing smart and using sphere kuriboh or enemy controller effects can help

A comment from Rorixblade:
Note: First KOG. Bad Aim is a great card for Geartown, throwing off its timing. KM-Ice was amazing versus Yubel as it cleared the way for OTKs. Used Core Reinforcement to set up Rooklord. Highly recommend playing Koa'ki Meiru even post nerf.

A comment from ShiningChaos:
This is my FIRST KING OF GAMES! I usually just go for the awards but I wanted to see if I could make it all the way. Basic movement of a Laval deck but with 3 special summoning monster for the OTK chance. Last match was ancient gear I was sweating! MOST FUN FOR SURE WITH THIS DECK! Handles all decks cause there a out for everything. I tired with aliens and dragunity but stuck at legend two and three this was the out. ENJOY!!

A comment from Currahee:
There are some situation cards: gold sarc., econ, pot of acq., warrior returning. If I have a Cannon and Gold Sarc. in the starting hand, than ready for the first turn the Synchro summon; later a good stall abillity.

If I destroyed any cards on the field with Dustflame Blasts and banish all monster from my graveyard, Pot of Acquisitiveness help and I can draw a card. In that situation when I had few cards left in my deck, it's really important with an higher chance than I back to the deck three Cannon and draw one of them.

In terms of monsters; L.Miller is very useful, if I hadn't a Molten Conduction in my hand or that he will be the third card to make Lady's effect.
Lady's effect is clear, that's really important with Canadias against Yubel players.

The hard matchups are the Yubels, who can summon Cerulean soon in the duel... Of course, the AG is too, but it depends largely on the starting hand; although the Dustflame Blast don't target just destroy.

It's weird when ppl say it's easier to climb at the end of the season, well in this season and the last one I climbed to legend 3 on the 1st and 2nd day and didn't play till the last 3 days as I rarely find a time to play, all I faced were full KOGs players with optimal meta decks, yesterday I kogged for the 12th time and all I faced were pre-nerf Koa'ki, optimal AGs, good players with Dinos and some lavals.
My early season KOGs were easier than my last 2 as I faced more Platinum-legend players in legend at the beginning/mid- season than the end!.

For me it is true. I struggle climbing to Legend from Platinum and then climb too easily to KOG...
Let's not complain. The meta is healthy. I just got to KOG with YTdan hazy deck. Minus some cards, but HAZY. Simple just a beatdown deck. Anyone can KOG.

I myself got to KOG using Red-Eyes Buster Deck with Parasite Infestation for the skill. I am a free user and I got most of it by completing all quizzes. It also helps me better counter or play smarter against any deck since I had the idea how their deck works...

Oh. I see now. Thank you.
Wow, admin deleted my post about people who cheated on KaibaCorp Bling skill. Are you one of those people? I saw your decklist after the duel and I didn't find any prismatic card, but during the duel you used the skill to grab prismatic Diamond Core, how is it possible?

I dunno why your post gets deleted, but I have a feeling the foils you see in the decklists are based on your own foils instead of the user's.

I started thinking about that when I saw Vagabond using a prismatic Enemy Controller, but when I checked the decklist, there's none. In another time, a decklist has a glossy card when it wasn't glossy in the duel. I do have a glossy version of that card.

I had dueled against KaibaCorp Bling Gem-Knight deck, my opponent used the skill to grab prismatic Grass Looks Greener. When I checked his decklist it was there, and I don't have any prismatic Grass in my collections. As for Koa'ki deck, I have glossy Maximus and Ice but when I saw "the cheater" decklist, all cards are regular. Nothing glossy or prismatic.
When you always brick at rank up KOG

Then loses 3 straight and derank.

Wins 5 to rank up. Yay! Oh what Legend 3? wtf

Loses 3 straight derank.. sigh

I came back from a longish break and had to climb out from rookie.

15 bricks it took me to get from R1 to bronze. Had to switch to Mermails to move, I was using U.A.
Everyone is playing Skull Meister to counter most graveyard decks. Just to tell that in the ladder, you don't need such a tech. You just ruin your deck by doing so.

But, I'm already KOG and I faced those who used it against. One guy was lucky and was able to drop 3 Skulls to disable my Vampire plays, others just drop one and lose afterwards. I'm the one who posted btw, and my deck is the post ban Vampires

That "Exodia FTK" it's not FTK, is a normal version
Why is that there's always people play AG in the KOG? Fun decks isn't fun anymore. Okay.. is that it? Okay.

Yeah, a lot of ancient gear going on. Plus some of the old tried and tested decks.

We are getting a new monarch though, one of the better ones too.

Wouldn't that means the meta is balanced, though?

As no deck is obviously OP compared to others.
7 masked heroes, that deck is really ever lasting.
