The classic Gadget archetype built for the modern era of the game. Grind your opponent out or quickly dispatch their life points with a swift Double Summon turn.

Trade with everything your opponent tries to do and you will end up with more cards left with all of you +1's. Hand traps galore, as well as more traditional forms of board interaction. Pair this with a massive toolbox of some of the best XYZ monsters in the game and you've got a formula for a potent anti-meta deck.

42 cards is the classic formula for a 6 gadget deck. It gives you the most consistency while also helping to spread your gadgets out more.

I'm an old school player that is returning to after having played from 2006-2014. I like trying different rogue decks and making hybrid strategies. I have a passion for TCGs and have played many different ones both past and current, which gives me a lot of experience to draw from when designing decks. It also means I love talking strategy and theory, so don't hesitate to ask questions! You can check out our YouTube page for Yugioh and Dragon Ball Super CCG content by clicking my profile!

    Yes, I definitely recommend it for locals! The side deck is pretty dependent on what you expect to see, but I have an example one posted with the deck. Generally you’ll want extra board-break cards, non-monster based S/T removal for Mystic Mine, and I also find the Zombie World match up to be really rough so I have extra cards for that match up.

    This is supposed to be gadget-only! Also, the only extra deck monster should be Platinum Gadget. But I should give credit for rank 4 xyz. Great idea! :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:
