Dragon Link is, as the name suggests, a Link-centric combo deck focused around Dragon cards. It has been a top-tier presence in the meta more or less consistently since mid-2020, and continues to adapt despite several banlist hits. On the October 2021 banlist, Dragon Link actually escaped completely unscathed, and was already considered a strong deck last format, so this deck remains a fantastic choice going forward.
The meta-relevant build often plays Chamber Dragonmaid alongside Dragonmaid Tidying for low-commitment and reliable disruption that also helps this deck grind turn 3 and onwards, while playing around board breakers like Dark Ruler No More. Chamber Dragonmaid is currently inaccessible to budget players, clocking in at over $70 apiece currently, but it is confirmed to get a reprint in the upcoming set Maximum Gold.
Mega-tins reprinted Chaos Ruler, a fantastic card in this deck that benefits basically all aspects of your game plan and enables you to synchro for Hot Red Dragon Archfiend Abyss.
The trendy meta version of Dragon Link tends to play floodgates in the main or side deck. Both Rivalry of Warlords and Gozen Match have been seeing a ton of popularity lately, due to their strength against decks like Prank-Kids and Tri-Brigade even going second into an established board.
Since these floodgates are cheap, expect to see this bullet point repeated a lot for some other decks on this post.
DLink is one of the most adaptive decks in the game, and is getting both direct and indirect support in the upcoming sets. BODE has Dualwiel Dragon, enabling Rapid Trigger shenanigans to make Borreload Furious Dragon.
It also has Destroy Phoenix Enforcer, an extremely powerful fusion somewhat similar to Dragoon in how splashable it is into various decks, and Dragon Link is no exception.
In January, we will also see the Brave Token engine make a splash in Grand Creators, and it is possible to mix these cards with Dragon cards as well.
