Counters for Ritual Beasts


  • Needs time to set up.
  • Combo oriented.
  • Difficult to play correctly.

Flood the Field

While it is a good defensive deck, Ritual Beasts still tend to struggle against beatdown due to it needing time to set-up in the early game. Take advantage of this by flooding the field with multiple Monsters and Spells.

Remove the Ritual Beasts

The actual Ritual Beasts cards are generally strong when played in their combo. When you remove one of them however, the cycle tends to break easily. Disrupt their combo by removing Ritual Beasts and their set-up cards early on.
