Cyberdark: deck recipe

Duel Links Breaking News
Lumis & Umbra event guide
update 24/07/2018

Overview

Zane Truesdale is back and this time he brought more “Cyberdark” support, Cyberdark Cannon and Cyberdark Claw; while we could stay here and complain about the fact that the Field Spell, Cyberdark Inferno, is still missing for seemingly no reason, I would much rather talk about what this deck can do now and how much it has improved thanks to these two new additions.

How to Use

Cyberdark Cannon & Cyberdark Claw

By discarding Cyberdark Cannon you can add any of three Machine-Type Level 4 “Cyberdark” monsters from your Deck to the hand, whereas by discarding Cyberdark Claw you can add a “Cyberdark” Spell/Trap Card (Cyberdark Impact!) from your Deck to the hand; both Cyberdark Cannon and Cyberdark Claw are Level 3 Dragon-Type monsters, which means that, after you send them to the Graveyard in order to activate their first effect, you will be able to equip them to Cyberdark Horn, Cyberdark Edge or Cyberdark Keel as soon as you Normal Summon them.

During damage calculation, if a monster equipped with Cyberdark Cannon battles, you can send a monster from your Deck to the Graveyard; you can send one of the Machine-Type “Cyberdark” monsters to the Graveyard with this effect to set up for Cyberdark Impact! or a Dragon-Type monster to have something to equip to the next “Cyberdark” monster you Normal Summon.

During damage calculation, if a monster equipped with Cyberdark Claw battles, you can send a monster from your Extra Deck to the Graveyard; you can send Five-Headed Dragon to the Graveyard with this effect to make Cyberdark Dragon reach 6000+ ATK.

If Cyberdark Cannon is sent to the Graveyard while equipped to a monster, you draw a card, whereas, if Cyberdark Claw is sent to the Graveyard while equipped to a monster, you can add a “Cyberdark” monster from your Graveyard back to the hand; you can trigger these effect with cards like Storm or Double Cyclone without having to wait for the “Cyberdark” monsters they are equipped to to leave the field or be about to be destroyed by battle.

Cyberdark Horn, Cyberdark Edge & Cyberdark Keel

When these monsters are Normal Summoned, you can equip a Level 3 Dragon-Type monster (Cyberdark Cannon or Cyberdark Claw) in your Graveyard to them; Cyberdark Horn, Edge and Keel gain ATK equal to the original ATK of the monster equipped to them by this effect, which means that they are going to reach 2400 ATK.

Each of the Machine-Type “Cyberdark” monsters has a unique ability: Cyberdark Horn is able to inflict piercing damage, Cyberdark Edge can attack the opponent directly and Cyberdark Keel inflicts the opponent 300 damage each time it destroys a monster.

When they are equipped with a monster by their effect, instead of being destroyed by battle, Horn, Edge and Keel destroy the monster equipped to them instead; this will trigger, as I said, Cyberdark Cannon and Claw’s effect.

Just like Masked HERO Anki, when Edge attacks the opponent directly via its effect, its ATK is halved during damage calculation only; you can use Forbidden Chalice during the Damage Step to inflict 2800 ATK or you can try the Skill Titan Showdown.

Cyberdark Impact!

Cyberdark Impact! allows you to Fusion Summon a Cyberdark Dragon from your Extra Deck by returning to the Deck Cyberdark Horn, Edge and Keel from the field, hand or Graveyard; it’s a decent card because it can be searched by Cyberdark Claw and it allows you to use monsters in the Graveyard as Fusion Material, partially offsetting how many resources you would have to put into a single monster.

Cyberdark Dragon

Cyberdark Dragon, which is ironically a Machine-Type monster, isn’t really that different from Cyberdark Horn, Cyberdark Edge and Cyberdark Keel, the only good thing it can bring to the table is the fact that there is no restriction on what kind of Dragon-Type monster you can equip to it when it’s Special Summoned.

Cyberdarkness Dragon Dragon is pretty much a better version of Cyberdark Dragon, but, in order to Summon it, you wouldn’t be able to use Cyberdark Impact! since the card specifically states that you can only Special Summon Cyberdark Dragon with it.

The additional boost from this Skill is greatly appreciated, but triggering it may not always be easy; Dark as Night is still much better than Cyberdark Style and Draw Sense: Dark now that Cyberdark Cannon and Claw have significantly increased the consistency of the deck.

Titan Showdown
Whichever player has double or more LP than the other takes double battle damage.
Rex Raptor
Rex Raptor

This Skill interacts in a “particular way” when it comes to monsters such as Masked HERO Anki and Cyberdark Edge: the damage inflicted is just double the monsters’ ATK, it ignores part of their effect, which would be incredible if Cyberdark Inferno was available.

[Skill] descriptionUser
Last Gamble
Can be used in your Main Phase, starting from the fifth turn. Upon activation, reduces your LP to 100 and discards 2 cards from your hand. You roll a die and draw that number of cards. This skill can only be used once per Duel.

You can discard materials for Cyberdark Dragon to activate the Skill, setting up the Graveyard for the Fusion Summon with Cyberdark Impact! and also drawing new cards for a potential OTK.

Weaknesses

  • Aside from protection from destruction by battle, which is pretty much useless for Cyberdark Dragon when it reaches 6000+ ATK, all monsters are weak against cards such as Treacherous Trap Hole and Vampire Kingdom; Cyberdark Inferno would be able to fix one of the biggest issues of the deck since the Field Spell prevents “Cyberdark” monsters that are equipped with an Equip Card from being targeted or destroyed by card effects.

  • Aside from Cyberdark Dragon, every “Cyberdark” monster can reach only 2400 ATK, which puts them exactly below Dragon Spirit of White and Azure-Eyes Silver Dragon; the deck will have a lot of trouble dealing with Blue-Eyes.

  • There is no Skill in particular that works well with the deck, Cyberdark Style adds nothing at all.

Plenty of people have reached King of Game rank with Cyberdark and have shared their decks here and in Duel Links meta.
Just because a dumb fella such as yoruself says it's not worthy, it doesn't mean it's like that. Your deceitful opinion is pretty much irrelevant, buddy. LOL

It's just an example. Honestly, Dark as NIGHT isn't even an amazing skill in Cyberdarks anyway. Granted, Zane's skills aren't amazing for Cyberdarks, either, but eh.
Start 3-1-19
Just use one copy of the Dragunity Phalanx. Easy synchro food and fast way to the grave for Cyberdark Impact!

Cyber Dark Impact replaces polymerization and synergizes with how the other cards work.

Ive seen a lot of people maining this archetype in Legend 3 during the last week of the last season. It's quite a competitive deck with a pretty strong offensive .

Not really an expensive deck since most of its card came from an Event, yet, it's very competitive. I just noticed how there are people actually reaching KoG rank with it.

I run one panzer dragon it has saved me in some duels.

Add also Meteor B. Dragon to use it as Equip Card, and Draconic Fusion skill to summon Five Head Dragon (it gives you another copy) using cannon and claw

This deck has high damage output: Direct attacks, trample, double attacks with a single Leng Ling copy can all steal games. It lacks survivability and unpredictability, so I cut down all Cdarks to two copies except Cannon and use that room for pairs of Enemy Controller and Sphere Kuriboh to defend but also enable damaging attacks or play around troublesome monsters or anything above 2500 ATK. A single Bacon Saver because it makes for an early defensive move you can mill at will. One Dark Core and Dark World Dealings help dump dead cards or Leng Ling/Bacon Saver for a better early setup and can be set as bluffs.

I have 5 edges from like 4 duels. I got my most likely max of 2 cannons. They seem to be super rare drops. I’ll just use two of everything.

"Just like Masked HERO Anki, when Edge attacks the opponent directly via its effect, its ATK is halved during damage calculation only; you can use Forbidden Chalice during the Damage Step to inflict 2800 ATK or you can try the Skill Titan Showdown." This is so stupid, I lose the duel, cyberdark claw or cannon are destroyed

You beat me to it.
I was also just going to say that whichever gamea writer, wrote that deck suggestion, he is a idiot.
If you use forbidden chalice on CD-edge when it attacks directly, it will release what it's equipped to (cos it's effect negated) and it will actually lose damage because it's no longer equipping anything.

chalice is is simply a DUMB idea to use for cyber darks.

I swapped it out with Ultimate Providence. I’m not a KOG player but because the deck is somewhat well rounded between monsters spells and traps AND you don’t need the cyberdarks in your hand as well as the fact that many decks run today require monster effects, (U.A. Cosmo Brain Amazoness Fur Hire and more)

Because of these things, Ultimate Providence just makes more sense

Chalice doesn't have sense in the deck unless you want to get rid or Claw or Cannon to trigger their effects (get a Cyberdark from GY or draw a card). But for that purpose you can use cards like Double Cyclone, which also destroys the opponent backrow. Whomever wrote that Chalice+Edge+Titan Showdown suggestion doesn't know the difference between Anki & Edge

Can this be played without 5Headed Dragon? The dragon with the highest attack I have is Rainbow Dragon.

Yes. You can finish the game without using fusion cyber dark monster.

Drake Reply
The point is to use a high ATK Dragon from the Extra Deck, because you can send it straight from the Extra Deck to the Graveyard with Cyberdark Claw effect. You can use a Fusion Dragon type (Five-Headed or Blue-Eyes Ultimate) or a Synchro Dragon (like Dragunity or Stardust)
