Top Player Council Thoughts

"Thoughts on the new Cyberdark cards?"

SDotAkuma:

The cards we should have had the first time around. Cool! But just that, cool. Not competitive, at first glance.

Sasuke:

Zane's new rewards are definitely good for his archetype but nothing that will make its way into the meta. It's good now that archetype has some draw power/milling effect from Cyberdark Claw and Cyberdark Cannon, though. Also, Cyberdarkness Dragon is very resource-Intensiveto to put on board in Duel Links.

kcful:

Doesn't do enough to make it meta relevant.

Flips:

Poo Poo! 💩

"Thoughts on the new skill, Cyberdark Style?"

SDotAkuma:

Cyberdark Style does not do the nerfed Cyber Style any justice. 1800 is too much, 1000 would have been nice. Either way, probably still just a fun deck.

Sasuke:

The randomness to this skill will be its downfall, even if the archetype was viable in the current meta. With skills that search monsters you usually find yourself needing a specific monster and not just any random one the game gives you.

kcful:

Really bad.

Flips:

Doo doo! 💩


Farm Decks

We will continue to add more decks so stay tuned!

Lvl: 40 Cloudian - credit: Jadehex

Strategy

Last Turn

You should only have Cloudian - Turbulence and a facedown Summoner of Illusions in your monster zones.

  1. Flip summon Summoner of Illusions and tribute Cloudian - Turbulence to special summon Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon/Master of Oz/Cyber End Dragon.
  2. Summon Gravekeeper's Vassal.
  3. Target Vassal with two Union Attack and Secret Pass to the Treasures.
  4. Enter the Battle Phase and attack directly for victory!

Replacements


Lvl: 40 Cloudian - Nimbusman - credit: DL Noir

You can watch his tutorial on YouTube!

Strategy

  • How this farm works is very simple: you get out Cloudian - Turbulence + Spirit Barrier and he cant do anything.
  • If you don't have Cloudian - Turbulence in your opening hand take 1800 damage so you can activate your skill and draw it.
  • The Sanctuary in the Sky acts as a second barrier, but doesn't protect from Cyberdark Edge direct attacks. However, it will usually give you enough time to stall until you draw Spirit Barrier.
  • Activate Cloudian Squall when you draw it to put out a plethora of counters.
  • You dont have to worry about Power Wall; he doesnt use it when Cloudian - Nimbusman attacks.
  • As the setup and finish for this farm is so simple, the rest of the space is simply draw power/deck thinning. The Paleozoic Marrella is just there to dump a Good Goblin Housekeeping to the grave to draw more with the other two copies.

Last Turn

  1. Tribute all your monsters to summon Cloudian - Nimbusman, usually coming out at over 10,000 ATK.
  2. Enter the Battle Phase and attack one of his monsters with the lowest ATK for victory!

Replacements


Lvl: 40 Labyrinth Builder - credit: Jadehex

Strategy

Last Turn

  2. Switch Labyrinth Wall into attack position.
  3. Special Summon Anteatereatingant.
  4. Summon Gravekeeper's Vassal.
  5. Target Vassal with two Union Attack and Secret Pass to the Treasures.
  6. Enter Battle Phase - attack Zane's life points directly!
