    I think e-con is better than kuriboh. E-con take plays are pretty good, even more so with goka. While Island can be bad at times, it is a staple at 3 imo until we get a better searcher.
  2. Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links

    Just got to KoG with phoenix again.
  3. Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links

    I played against a red-eyes exodia deck on plat ladder. I was playing phoenix but hard bricked and they resolved 3 shards of greed as well as 3 cards of red eyes (also insights and spirits). In the end he had a hand of 6 to my 3 yaksha on board and 2 cards left in deck. He drew for turn and conceded. Easily the most satisfactory win of my life.
  4. Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links

    I think Limit Reverse, Sinister Serpent, Greenkappa and maybe Slushy are all good cards to have from the new set. Silent Magician and Vortex Trooper could be decent too.

    I see no reason not to play the "max" amount of phoenix. Without it, what are you playing, really? Your deck is just too fair if you don't have the phoenix plays. Also, you are perfectly fine with drawing multiple phoenix. Many people who run the phoenix deck complain of bricking. I can also confirm that. From what I have heard from them 3 phoenix 2 soul is the most optimal. I ran that last season but now I play 3-3 and it is doing pretty well. You do not care about dead cards of the soul, if you have 1-2 phoenix cycled, you should win anyways.
  6. Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links

    You should be playing 2-3 cards of the soul, especially since you lack the 3rd phoenix. Chiron is redundant imo with phoenix already destroying the backrows but idk your collection. Treeborn and hand also seem iffy but again, it all boils down to your collection.

    Soul exchange can also be used to get a fodder for the ritual summon, right? Also, toons are just super annoying to play against. I don't know how a psychic angmarl deck looks like but the pure psychic deck with "no mortal can resist" is doing pretty well already.

    Anti-Magic Arrows is something that red-eyes decks run 1-2 copies of, so rising isn't that great I imagine. Also, if they econ take your monster, you are going to be taking a lot of damage. I think the relinquished package is better. As you mentioned it is hard for the opponent to go over a senju/bird + potentially a sphere kuriboh and OTK. The ritual spell also gets rid of the dead treeborns/serpents in hand. Relinquished is also pretty annoying for them to get rid of. Relinkuriboh also seems like a nice addition to the deck. I feel like if you can bring out relinquished turn 2 consistently, then that deck would be extremelly overpowered.

    You can try playing frost and flame dragon with phoenix. Backrows shoulnt be an issue with phoenix. FnF helps getting rid of the dead cards as well as the monsters. For water monsters, yomi ship and gale ensure you don't die to aggro and you can/should be playing sphere kuribohs too. I am not sure if it would be as consistent as the regular phoenix deck, but you can also run seer as your water targets to increase consistency.
  11. Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links

    In frognarch decks you can now dump serpent and treeborn with skreech so in a way skreech replaces itself. It also has a synergy with tribute to the doomed which is not a terrible card in a deck with 3 angmarl.

    I am not sure how linking external stuff works in DGz so not going to link it myself, but Duel Links Meta is probably the best place to have a good idea of what top decks and their lists look like. I am in their discord and can confirm that the decks posted there have reached KoG. Currently, there haven't been any lists under August but the July one is still pretty relevant.

    While I haven't tested it myself, I know a KoG GK player who played Divine Wrath instead of the Xing Zhen Hu. I am not a fan of -1 cards, but he argued that it was useful for him. Matchups wise, I think Soul Exchange and E-Con take plays allow GK to beat Phoenix rather easily so Divine Wrath isn't that needed. Relinquished is almost non-existent at this point in Legend and above so I wouldn't be threatened by it. I haven't tested the deck that extensively but yes Wrath + Soul Exchange should beat Mill and Burn pretty easily. However, Oracle can also just destroy the set monsters so Oracle + Soul Exchange might be enough but I am not sure. Red-Eyes is by far the worst matchup. And divine wrath does absolutely nothing. Xing Zhen can freeze their spirits/vigilances if you go first so it is much better than Wrath in this matchup. Naturia isn't super relevant at the moment, but yes Wrath is amazing vs them imo. Overall, the card definitely has some potential, but I think is outclassed by other cards due to the prevalence of Red-Eyes.

    Ice Barriers play Balance with 5 spells. If they go first and pass, they are playing ice barriers. For GKs, I heard that this deck does very well in Legend. I am testing it with 2 angmarl 2 chief in KoG but 1 Angmarl is pretty decent. Skill: Restart 1 Angmarl 3 Chief 3 Recruiter 2 Oracle 1 Seer 3 Enemy Controller 2 Double Summon 3 Soul Exchange 2 Xing Zhen Hu
  17. Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links

    Yes, red eyes and the phoenix are the two best decks. In order to build red-eyes you need to get the cards from the Super Joey event, which I assume is not something everyone has achieved. So the second best deck is phoenix and you need to buy Dawn of Destiny in order to build it. In fact, I think you can get to KoG by solely opening Dawn of Destiny. Having kuribohs would be awesome, but I think it is possible to get there without them. (I haven't actually seen a KoG phoenix without kuribohs, so idk how viable it is. Have seen quite a bit of lists with 1 kuriboh though.) Now Naturia is also a deck that you can get from Dawn of Destiny. Don't get me wrong, I hate naturia. However, it is undeniably the best deck to reach KoG under a super-low budget (With 3 soul exchange and Angmarl I would also suggest gravekeepers). If you can make a red-eyes or a phoenix deck, then be my guest. The way I see it, if getting to KoG is one's goal, then building a phoenix deck should be the goal since at this point it is impossible to get the red-eyes cards. In doing so, one would also have a naturia deck available anyways since they are all pretty low rarity and in that same set. Naturia would simply be a stepping stone, but would also be a perfectly viable deck for reaching KoG. I hope I don't come off as a jerk, but you really SHOULDN'T care about Platinium. It is the TCG equivalent of a high-tier local low-tier regional. "Plat is the new silver" is a pretty relevant meme, and for a good reason. You can bring any deck and have a good success with it (Assuming that you have been playing the TCG for some time). Heck, even Legend 1 is flooded with players who are fresh out of Plat, testing weird decks since they cant go lower. Since you like theorizing a lot, I suggest that you (and anyone else) reach Legend before you start theorizing. You have just seen the ice barrier OTK deck, until recently you were considering the hand build while Legend is like 99% island build at this point. Who knows what other strategies have you missed out on. Again, I hope I was not condescending but I believe without reaching Legend, one's theory would lack the appropriate experimentation. Without an appropriate theory, I would heavily advise against investing in a pack/card.
  18. Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links

    I am not sure if this has been stated before, but for those who are F2P or who don't have all the cards, Dawn of Destiny is the pack to go imo. Naturias are super cheap and can reach Legend easily. (Can also go for KoG if you play a lot.) Phoenix is also the 2nd best deck so my priority would be to fish for 3 phoenix 3 SRH. I wouldn't even touch Electric Overload it doesn't support the existing archetypes but rather includes new decks which aren't that great unless you clear out the box 3 times. (Ninjas require 3 Transformation, Angmarl and Treeborn aren't exactly great at 1) Now obviously treeborn is going to be relevant for a long time (atleast that is what I believe) so at some point you would want to invest in that box, just saying that you shouldn't rush into it now.

    Competition starts at Legend. There is no such thing as competition in KoG either because everyone just runs random decks (albeit decks that are still much stronger than plat decks)
  21. Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links

    1st one: 2 dollars 2nd one: 5 dollars 3rd one: idk 4th one: 10 dollars 5th one: 20 dollars 6th one: 30 dollars 7th one: 45 dollars? Not sure These are approximately the prices for each of them.
  22. Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links

    Skill: Beatdown 3x Fire King Yaksha 3x Phoenix 2x Sphere Kuriboh 2x Goka 2x Hane-Hane 3x Fire King Island 2x Card of the Soul 2x Enemy Controller 1x Windstorm Got to KoG with this but would replace the windstorm with 3rd sphere kuriboh if I had it.
  23. Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links

    I reached KoG with Nephtys. Hand is bad though imo.
  24. Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links

    What do you think about 3 Angmarl 3 Soul Exchange and 2 Relinquished and 2 Ritual?
  25. Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links

    Maybe replacing the SRH with E-Con is better. More synergy with treeborn and angmarl plays. Better vs phoenix in my opinion since vs. this version phoenix players can just pop their phoenix when you SRH to dodge relinquished. It should also be better against stuff like necrofear but the biggest concern is phoenix imo. After that change maybe add 2 kuribohs so that we don't auto-lose to ice barrier and also have an extra line of defense vs a phoenix that just nuked our econ/SRH.
