Yu Gi Oh Master Duel Tier List – Best Cards & Decks

Yu Gi Oh Master Duel Tier List – S Tier

These are undisputed best cards in Yu Gi Oh Master Duel tier list. They give you the most consistent advantage in any Duel and can serve as a focal point for decks.

  • Kiteroid – Kiteroid being able to block two attacks in what could have been game-enders makes it a popular pick, even in non-Machine Decks.
  • Chaos Dragon Levianeer – The effect that this card brings as soon as it is summoned, alongside its stellar stats, makes it one of the most splashable “Chaos” monster in the game.
  • Harpie Channeler – Being able to Special Summon a fellow “Harpie” from the Deck makes this card an important piece to the archetype’s strength. Using the right cards for each of its effects can snowball combo into a massive card advantage.
  • Elemental HERO Stratos – A card that remains a staple for HERO Decks regardless of its subarchetype; Elemental HERO Stratos provides both offensive power and ability to search, and it also provides back row destruction when needed.
  • Blue-Eyes Alternative White Dragon – All you have to do is reveal a “Blue-Eyes White Dragon” from your hand, and you have a Level 8 beat stick sharing the dragon’s original name with an ability to destroy a card once per turn.
  • Dragon Spirit of White – Another key card within this Yu Gi Oh Master Duel tier list having “Blue-Eyes” Decks, this card can banish cards whenever it gets Special Summoned. It can also be a catalyst in getting “Blue-Eyes White Dragon” out on the field easier.
  • Blue-Eyes Spirit Dragon – Another key member within a “Blue-Eyes” strategy, this card limits the number of Special Summons each player is planning to do. It can also swap itself out to a fellow Synchro Dragon with the same level.
  • Vermillion Dragon Mech – Banishing Tuners from your Graveyard to gain card advantage on the field is a nice trade-off, especially against players not expecting other Synchro Monsters.
  • Cyber Slash Harpie Lady – Not having to use Tuners when built around an archetype that does not have any is definitely a benefit worth taking advantage of. This card also focuses on returning cards back to the hand whenever a Spell Card is activated; a welcome surprise, as most effect negations single out card destruction effects.
  • Gaia the Magical Knight of Dragons – This monster can quickly scale to have immense attacking power, or it can trade said power for the ability to destroy a pesky card on the field. Given its archetype, it is also surprisingly easy to set up and Fusion Summon for.
  • Red-Eyes Slash Dragon – While the effect requires you to run a couple of Warriors in what should have been a purely Dragon-type Deck for Red-Eyes, the effect gives this card a surprising amount of control and survivability. Having a dedicated Fusion Spell card absolutely helps to get this boss monster out quicker by a lot.
  • Hieratic Sun Dragon Overlord of Heliopolis – While it does need tributes to activate its effect, the cards in the hand can be used for said tribute effect for a chance to clear the field from monsters and the back row with Set or already face-up cards.
  • Number 70: Malevolent Sin – This monster can scale endlessly when left alone to attack and destroy monsters, and it also has the ability to temporarily banish a monster off the field for a turn! For any Deck focusing on Rank 4 XYZ Summons, this monster is a good choice to run.

Yu Gi Oh Master Duel Tier List – A Tier

Cards found in the Yu Gi Oh Master Duel tier list (A-Tier) are excellent and may soon make their way to the S-Tier. Veteran players can more often than not make full use of its capabilities.

  • D/D Swirl Slime – While it is primarily a substitute for Fusion Spells for the D/D archetype, its ability to Special Summon a D/D monster from the hand is pretty game-changing, especially for an archetype that relies on chaining Special Summons.
  • Zubababancho Gagagacoat – This card increased the Xyz Summon rate of the onomatopeia archetypes, and even enabled an easier way to get Xyz Monsters requiring 3 or more Xyz Materials out on the field faster.
  • Maiden with Eyes of Blue – This card can act as a wall monster all on its own, due to her ability to bring out the Blue-Eyes White Dragon whenever the card is targeted while in Attack Position. It is also a tuner, making it a good monster to consider to use to opt into Synchro Monsters.
  • Red Nova Dragon – Much like Shooting Star Dragon, this card has gained massive support and had decks revolving around this card dominate the competitive meta. Few monsters can compete with a powered-up Red Nova Dragon after having done several Synchro Summons to get this monster out on the field.
  • Chimeratech Rampage Dragon – Despite its requirements needing multiple “Cyber Dragon” monsters to maximize its effect, this card is as strong as it is due to Skills from Zane Trues dale supporting the archetype, and the Spell Cards that expands the legal cards to be used as Fusion Material.
  • Photon Strike Bounzer – With the increasing rate of monster effects dominating the meta, this card allows the player to deny a card monster’s effect and inflict burn damage afterwards to boot. Getting the Level 6 monsters it requires out on the field to summon this card is well worth the effort.

Yu Gi Oh Master Duel Tier List – B Tier

Yu Gi Oh Master Duel tier list (B-Tier) cards are rarely used, but they have the potential to be among A-Tier. Niche and underappreciated, but extremely capable in the right circumstances.

  • Deep-Eyes White Dragon – For a last resort monster in the Blue-Eyes archetype, the Deep-Eyes White Dragon is often not brought along because it is already strong as is. Burn damage, a monster nuke effect, and the ability to copy high ATK from one of your Dragons are all pretty nifty effects, however.
  • Jinzo – A classic monster that still maintains a strong presence, Jinzo can deny all trap cards, which are surprisingly strong in Duel Links despite the fast Special Summon focus of the current meta. This card can even be give to other Decks if there is a set-up to summon it fast.
  • Heroic Champion – Excalibur – “Heroic” monsters may be a little underwhelming, but this card is a surprising powerhouse. It has one chance to double its original ATK to 4000, and with a certain “Heroic” Spell Card it can reach OHKO territory with at least 8000 ATK.
  • Black Rose Dragon – One of the most convenient monsters to bring out if a player wants to completely nuke the field and reset everything. While it is easy to get this out because of generic requirements, it does have its own “Rose Dragon” archetype to support its other effects.
  • Diamond Dire Wolf – While it needs to destroy one of your own monsters to even activate this card’s effect, it also equals it out by destroying another card on the field. It also helps that the monster types its effect mentions are becoming common archetypes.
  • Photon Papilloperative – Forcing a monster from defense to face-up Attack Position with an ATK decrease leaves it open for stronger monsters to take advantage and deal even greater damage. Perfect for facing against Defense-oriented or Stall Decks.

Yu Gi Oh Master Duel Tier List – Spell Cards

These are best spell cards in Yu Gi Oh Master Duel tier list. The tier list of spell cards in Master Duel is divided into three tiers; S-Tier, A-Tier and B-Tier.

Yu Gi Oh Master Duel Spell Cards Tier List – S Tier

  • Elegant Egotist – There is no cost to Special Summon a “Harpie Lady” monster from the Deck, and there are no restrictions on how it can be used. Due to the outpouring of support for the archetype, the supply of this Spell Card has been increased.
  • Enemy Controller – A Quick-Play spell that allows a player to temporarily modify the fighting location of a monster or even take control of it. In any case, even with the quicker meta, Enemy Controller is still as strong as ever.
  • Lightning Vortex – A boost to your card advantage is discarding one card to destroy all face-up monsters your opponent controls. In addition, you get to discard a card; if the card you send has a Graveyard effect, you get even more.

Yu Gi Oh Master Duel Spell Cards Tier List – A Tier

  • Necrovalley – The card that made the ability to lock down cards in the Graveyard so popular. This card is still considered an anti-GY card because it stops cards from using it as a secondary resource.
  • Night Beam – While Night Beam does not destroy Spells or Traps. It does prevent your opponent from activating the selected Set card until the conclusion of the turn in which you triggered it. That gives you plenty of time to finish the game before then.
  • Mask Change – The “Masked HERO” archetype revolves around this Quick-Play Spell. People are frequently caught off guard when switching from one formidable monster to another, and few are prepared for a monster summoning in the middle of the Battle Phase.

Yu Gi Oh Master Duel Spell Cards Tier List – B Tier

  • Power of the Guardians – When left alone long enough, the effects of an Equip Spell that is easily accessible and farmable become quite irritating. Due to its constant ability to raise your monster’s ATK, it’s also a popular choice for Raid Duels.
  • Dark Magical Circle – Dark Magical Circle allows you to search your deck for a specified card while destroying an opponent’s monster. In Yu Gi Oh Master Duel Dark Magician Decks, you can’t go wrong with this card.
