We’ve rounded up eight of the best deck types, achetypes, and engines in Yu-Gi-Oh! Master duel.
If you’re an avid TCM player, you already know that Master Duel offers a plethora of options for you to delve into. If you want to build the best card game possible and play like a true pro, all the options you need are here.
In this list, we’ve rounded up eight of the best deck types, archetypes, and engines that global players have implemented in their winning strategy. These varied decks, engines and archetypes are essential to help you win games in Yu-Gi-Oh! Master duel. Sure, you can absolutely win games without using any of the things we suggest, but you need luck in the draw as these card ideas stack things neatly in your favor.
8. Prank Kids
Prank-Kids is about using Level 1-4 Prank-Kids monsters to summon more monsters, collecting resources with each step. While their aesthetic may seem silly at first, they’re even more ridiculous after fusing/pairing card names like Meow-Meow-Mu, Dodo-Doodle-Doo, Bow-Wow-Bark, and more. This is one of the easier decks to build in the game, but still one of the most important engines, meaning you absolutely must have a Prank-Kids deck built and ready to use in case of an emergency.
7. Sky Strikers
The Sky Strikers engine has skyrocketed in competitive TCG and soars even higher in Master Duel thanks to the semi-limited rather than limited maps. This engine focuses on using spells to create plays and gather resources. You won’t find many Trap cards in a Sky Strikers deck other than Infinite Impermanence, and that’s because the more spells in your graveyard, the more options/effects you’ll activate.
The essential monster in this deck is Eldlich The Golden Lord. This card game is best for preventing your opponent from destroying your cards or activating card effects. Even if The Golden Lord is sent to the graveyard, he can return to the field, allowing Eldlich to rise up as the zombie he is. This is a control deck for longer duels, but is capable of cornering opponents, steadily decreasing their resources.
Tri-Brigade is a combination of Beast, Beast-Warrior, and Winged Beast monsters. The play style is heavily repetitive combo play when the monsters are sent to the graveyard to trigger effects. Tri-Brigade uses Banishment strategies in addition to Link Summoning monsters like Shuraig. Some decks use purely Tri-Brigade monsters/support, which is an option. Combining Link Tri-Brigade monsters with Xyz Zoodiac monsters creates a Beast deck that is incredibly ferocious.
4. Virtual World
Virtual World focuses on using various monsters on the main deck, banishing these monsters to give bonuses, and ending up in summoning Xyz or Synchro monsters – mainly Synchro. Shenshen is one of the boss monsters and can banish all cards sent from the field to the graveyard – a powerful ability. This allows the deck to offer bonuses while hurting your opponent by preventing them from triggering graveyard effects. Summoning Ultimaya Tzolkin or Crystal Wing Synchro Dragon will completely negate your opponent’s monster effects – brutally.
3. Dragon Girl
Dragonmaids can protect themselves by switching to their other forms during the duel, and provide a number of benefits, with their main boss monster, Dragonmaid Sheou, being able to negate any card/effect. If one of the cute Dragon Maiden is returned to the hand while House Dragon Maiden is on the field, the Dragon Maiden player can destroy any opponent’s monster. This is a simple and effective deck that can take the pressure off your opponents.
If you were a fan of the classic Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series, then you probably recognize the Toon monsters. Toons can attack the opponent directly if they don’t have any Toon monsters of their own, and with cards like Toon Dark Magician giving extra summons, Toons are a force to be reckoned with. Arm yourself with Toon Kingdom and a bunch of Toon Monsters, and this deck is still a guaranteed hit.
1. Drytron Fairy
This deck is all about Ritual Summoning of special Fairy monsters as you cut all the roads for your opponent. Sounds good, right? The Herald of Ultimateness boss card allows you to discard a Fairy monster from your hand to cancel a Special Summon or a Spell/Trap card. This can completely destroy certain deck strategies. And if you use Cyber Angel monsters as material for Ritual Summon, you can draw more cards from the deck.
