Deck Strategy

First off, please keep in mind that I put this deck together based on the cards I happened to collect while playing Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links. There are a few slots I would switch out for other cards, but part of player skill entails making the best of what you have. Regardless, the deck still held its own against the strongest of meta decks out there. After all, I would not have hit King of Games status if the build was too weak.

Like the deck’s namesake, the No. 1 tactic focuses on trying to summon the monster called Relinquished. With this monster out, the real fun begins.

RelinquishedIn a nutshell, Relinquished “absorbs” your opponent’s monsters. When Relinquished absorbs a monster, it then holds them as a hostage and then uses their power against the opponent.

While my opponent wants to summon their strongest monster, it makes Relinquished’s job easier when they do. Frankly, there is a sadistic satisfaction in turning the table on your opponent with one Relinquished summoning.

Kog Deck in ActionBasically, every card in the deck has a particular purpose centered around Relinquished in some shape or form. I have cards that “toolbox” specific components for Relinquished. Hence, cards like Sonic Bird and Senju of the Thousand Hands are vital for consistency purposes.

Because card advantage is a big deal to me, I use lots of card-drawing effects to dig through my deck. As long as you can summon Relinquished at any point, the deck does just fine.

Sleeper Card: Storm

StormThe Storm card is amazing in this deck. Combined with Yami Yugi’s Power of Dark character skill, I often have a Yami Field Spell out in play as combo fodder.

By using Storm, you can blast your Yami, Relinquished’s attached monster and maybe something else to take out stuff on your opponent’s board. Due to this play, this then allows you to steal another monster with Relinquished and close out the game.

Finding Your Unique Deck Recipe for Success

This particular deck matches my playing style well. Just coming out victorious is boring to me – I want to win with my own style. Simply put, I just prefer executing “creative” plans of attack.

As I was playing ranked matches, I had to use my brain to overcome meta decks again and again. Let’s just say I blindsided many people with plenty of reversal victories.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel LinksAs they say, the proof is in the pudding. This deck took me to the top in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links. Be sure to put together a winning formula of your own and climb in the rankings.

See you all in Duel World.
