Deck Concept

Gouki Decks rely on the ability of Gouki monsters to search each other from the Deck when they are destroyed. This effect allows you to slowly gain control of the field as the Duel progresses. Gouki monsters are often paired with Spell and Trap Cards that require you to Tribute monsters since they are constantly replenished in your hand.

Extra Deck
  • Demise of the Land can be an additional card that become a bottleneck by using its effect to bring out a copy of Necrovalley out, thereby continuing the lockout of Special Summons from the Graveyard.
  • If you want to run a different Field Spell as a surprise, Zombie World can lock out both sides from Tribute Summons, and also turns all monsters on the field and in both Graveyards as Zombies.
  • Common replacement cards are now dependent on the player; Gagaga Cowboy can deal effect damage, Book of Moon and Paleozoic Canadia flips an opponent's monster face-down.
  • If a card is activated, Bad Aim can destroy any other card on the field other than the activated card, giving a chance to clear out more problematic cards by surprise.

Counters for Gouki


  • Gouki monsters have low DEF.
  • Relies heavily on Spell and Trap Cards.
  • Contains very few monsters in the Main Deck.

0 DEF Stat

All Gouki monsters have 0 DEF, which make them vulnerable when forced into Defense Position. Use effects that can either change their Battle Position or force them to use their DEF stat. Monsters that can inflict piercing battle damage can also be useful against Gouki monsters.

Prevent Deck Searching

Gouki Decks rely on being able to search for other Gouki monsters from the Deck. By preventing this effect, you can hinder your opponent from controlling the field.

Limit their Spells and Traps

To counter many other Decks, Gouki players run several Spell and Trap Cards that allow them to easily remove or incapacitate cards on the field. Remove or negate their Spells and Traps before they are able to target your important cards.
