Strengths

  • Extra Deck options can have variety should you keep in mind what can work.
  • The Deck is ridiculously cheap to build; most of the cards needed for the deck are available in one single BOX.
  • For Fusion monsters, some combos do not need to need "Polymerization" or other Fusion-required Spell Cards.

Deck Concept

The D/D archtype is known for their ability to chain multiple Special Summon methods to get strong monsters out and control the field. This Deck accomodates all the current cards within the archtype, and will only get stronger once more support arrives in future releases.

Main Deck

Card Alternatives

  • If you aim on playing common Synchro Monsters like Stardust Dragon and Black Rose Dragon, a good suggestion would be to run D/D Ghost and use it in tandem with D/D/D Flame King Genghis.
  • Running a third copy of D/D Berformet can enable a lot of common Rank 4 Xyz Monster plays, like Gagaga Cowbow, Number 70: Malevolent Sin, Diamond Dire Wolf and Abyss Dweller.
  • Dark Contract with the Abyss can let you destroy cards on the field, while also sending your D/D monsters from the hand to the Graveyard to act as a second resource pool.
  • Because you run Level 7 monsters like D/D/D Dragon King Pendragon and D/D Vice Typhon, you can use Soul Exchange or Enemy Controller as a bait-and-switch to Tribute Summon using one of your opponent's monsters.
  • Common control cards like Storm, Dark Ruler No More and Fiendish Chain can help the Special Summon chain stay safe. Meanwhile, Spirit Barrier can keep you from receiving Battle Damage if you can only Normal Summon your low level-monsters at the moment.
  • You can run Call of the Archfiend to consistently Special Suimmon the aforementioned Level 7 monsters; somehow it synergizes very well with the D/D archtype, which are exclusively Fiend-type monsters.
  • Stygian Dirge is starting to become a consistent alternative control card, as most of the stronger Decks are mostly using Synchro Monsters and Xyz Monsters--both of which put a focus on Levels above anything else.
  • All the new D/D Cards can be slotted into this Deck through mix-and-match, depending on the preferred playstyle. The Pendulum Monsters are especially of note, which promotes the archetypes power of chaining Special Summons one after another.
  • A Field Spell that rose to prominence after the release of Declan Akaba is Golden Castle of Stromberg, which when paired with his "Contract Procastination" Skill can completely bypass the cost effect and not banish 10 cards from your own Deck.

How to Play D/D/D Kings

Main Combo

DDD Flame King Genghis.png

1. Activate Dark Contract with the Gate, then search out either a copy of D/D Swirl Slime
2. Use the effect of D/D Swirl Slime to use itself and D/D Berformet to Fusion Summon D/D/D Flame King Genghis.
3. Normal Summon D/D Nighthowl, and use its effect to Special Summon the same D/D Berformet you just sent to the Graveyard.
4. Use D/D Nighthowl and D/D Berformet to Synchro Summon D/D/D Gust King Alexander to your field.
5. Upon the Special Summon, activate the effect of D/D/D Flame King Genghis to Special Summon D/D Nighthowl to your field.
6. Use D/D Nighthowl and D/D/D Gust King Alexander as material to Synchro Summon D/D/D Gust High King Alexander.
7. Activate Dark Contract with the Swamp King and Banish D/D Berformet and D/D Nighthowl to Synchro Summon D/D/D Oracle King D'arc.
8. Because there are now three D/D/D monsters on your field, D/D/D Gust High King Alexander instantly activates its effect and increases his ATK by 3000.
9. If you have this card already Set prior before making a move, activate Dark Contract with Errors to negate all Trap Cards until the end of the turn, once per turn.
10. On your next Standby Phase, if D/D/D Oracle King D'arc is still on your field, the maintenance costs of Dark Contract with the Gate, Dark Contract with the Swamp King and Dark Contract with Errors are now added to your Life Points for a total of 3000 LP.

Counters for D/D/D Kings

Weaknesses

  • The deck is effectively nulled if it gets locked out of its Extra Deck.
  • Monster cards are all exclusively D/D monsters so variety can be limited in the Main Deck.
  • The success of this Deck often relies on a player's cards on hand; stopping its ability to search can prevent the chain Special Summons from happening.

Limit the Special Summons

The Deck's main combo can be pulled off as early as the first turn with a good hand, and the Deck is extremely reliant on its Special Summons, either from the Graveyard or from the Extra Deck.

Negate As Much As Possible

All of the cards within the D/D archtype are Effect Monsters, and a lot of them enable the Special Summon chain. Negations are one of its biggest weaknesses, so use this weak point to your advantage.
