High Quality Decks

Alright this is for now my last update for this list as I gonna focus on a few other archtypes for now. The deck really full filled all the expactations I had of it and even more. Its a highly debatable version which rewards extending just a little further than usual while also having a hidden tool box with cards most people dont know / expact to see.

And while I know Back to duel ( https://imgur.com/a/Vz9opPZ )  is just some locals which can range from casual to competitive depending who attends, it still shows that the deck can win on a consitant basis, putting it not only on a even length with other versions like Dragunitymaids, Controlmaids or other versions. But also making it a strong contender against Dragonlink ( actually one of the best match ups for this deck ), can challenge any Shadoll version and is flexible enough to counter almost any rouge strat. Best part, you cant lose to mystic mine with this deck, its literall impossible.

A replay so you get an Idea : https://www.duelingbook.com/replay?id=447320-27026681

The replay isnt using the same list as I show a bit below, but it still shows the combo you want to do, so I will be lazy and keep it as example. Sue me : D

Now lets find something else to combo to. This time we focus on instead of not letting our opponent play, we will just make it so they cant interact with our cards and we throw as many stone in their way as possible. To make it simple I will copy my explantions for each card from the last list, just updated for all thats new.

Also remember, Laundry is the best Maid, even if she is the worst card.

Well I assume you are here to look at one of the endless versions of Dragonmaid decks. Its the reason why this archtype became a fan favorite since its launch. You can play controll, stun, combo, 40 cards, 60 cards. Throw pots in, or throw them out ones you see that there is no money left after buying 3 Hospitality. Orrrr you are here for the waifus. Hey I dont judge, aslong as we agree that Drident is best maid.

Lets go over it card by card and talk about the goal we have with this deck.

The dragonmaid core :

3 Chamber : Searches you the fusion spell, hospi to extend, tidying to extend if you have ravine or to set for controll. She is one of the 1 card sphere maker and what is really important, she is the only one able to summon the fusion maids from grave at the start of the bp.

3 Parlor : Basically works the same as chamber and does almost all the same. Only difference she can send tidying directly for combo, but cant gets its controll eff. However if you already have extender in hand she is a good way to get nurse or any other maid you may need later to grave. Also a 1 card sphere

1 Nurse : She is one of the cards holding the deck together. Overworked nurses are sadly also part in a fantasy card game, thats why you want to use her every turn to extend and summon more maids. She is basically a flat +1 or +2 everytime you summon her ones the grave is set.

2 Changeover : Your fusion spell to go into the gem of the deck Dragonmaid Sheou/Strahl, or House when you are lead down the dark path of VFD. Important to remember for the gy effect, even if the target leaves the board, you still add changeover to hand.

3 Hospitality : Probably one of the most broken extender to ever be printed. Set up your grave, non target summon from hand and gy. Searchable and one activation a turn no use. Sadly the price tag is justified, but dont buy it if you can avoid. Dont let people sky rock the price and gate people out. the reprint is coming !

3 Tidiyng : Looping cards back to hand and in best case triggering your House is always good, but non target summon from hand or gy in etiher players turn while being searchable by two cards ? This card should be the 40$ one~ Also REMEMBER the targets once targeted dont need to stay on board to resolve. You can tar sphere, chain sphere and bounce 2 cards.

 

Rokket :

2 Tracer : Its tracer, it summons another rokket for a free  Savage Dragon, and can be summoned by quick launch. Yeah, I dont know how quick launch and this can exist at the same time. Also its a 1 card I:P , allows you to do guardragon through hand traps and is always a combo saver / extender / starter.

1 Absoruter : As we play Ravine we love discarding things that also give us free cards back so this card is already good for us, but it can also work as a mini noctovision dragon if we have a rokket on board. Dragon, free summon and search? Sign me up

1 Silver : Wont come up often but the banish eff can be nice. ( Update : after maybe 50 games, the banish eff still never came up. Still a different name so we keep it)

1 Recharger : target for quicklaunch and tracer, but also can work with striker dragon eff to recycle a tracer back to hand and summon 2 of boot sector

  1. Boot Sector : Summon striker, search this spam rokkets. Simple

Dragons :

3 Noctovision : Make striker = free summon. Simple. gives you a extra draw and protects your set tidying when in grave, this card is basically a dragonmaid. Since its release its been probably the most played card which isnt part of the archtype.

2 Fantastical Dragon Phantazmay : With dragon link and other link decks running around, its just a nice card to have, also it fixed goddess weakness of being targeted + its a high level dragon to fusion. Also it lets you dig for super poly and other cards which may save your day when the opponent starts playing solitair.

1 Dragons Ravine : Search of Romulus and dumb extender and send extender. Or send Gram for another big body. Also cleans your hand of cards you dont want to have there

1 Tempest 1 Gold Sako : Simple combo to search Gram or Parlor

1 Fallen of Albaz : You summon him of Sphere most of the time and just poly away their boss Monster for a titanclad, its a easy dragoon out, as if they negate sphere bounce you just summon him and fusion dragoon away. Its probably my favorite non maid in this deck.

1 Dragunity Gram : Lets not lie to each other. This card is just a Dragon Ruler in disguise, you cant fool us Gram. But we gladly welcome him as he is extender with a negate packed to it.

Hand traps : 3 Ash + Super poly/ Nibiru . Super poly is king in this deck as we can also use it during the BP to get a bit more damage on board, while it also just ruins dragonlinks day, and annoys shadoll / invoked to no compare.

Extra :

1x Dragonmaid Sheou : Its your best card, its your free summon omni negate, waifu, dragon. Also we play only one because she shuffels herself back.

2x House Dragonmaid : So we can use Sheou omni negate, or pop a whole opponents board. We can shuffel her back and usually dont need more

1x Borrel Savage : Omni negate, whats to say. Sadly not a maid

1x Titanclad the Ashdragon : Summon of Albaz to remove a boss monster or if its send by maximus to get you a free albaz to combo with / fusion into venom dragon

1x Starving Venom Dragon : Its a awesome super poly / fallen of Albaz target. While also a threat to the board right after being summoned.

1x Romulus : Searches Dragon Ravine for you and is a good link 2 target with good zones

1x Pitsy and Elpy : The extender dragons which hopefully get banned soon. Usually made with Nurse + any maid

1x Sphere : One of the stronges interrupts in the game + free summon from deck + good zones + being a dragon + 1 card out to dragoon

1x I:p  : We need her to link summon in the opponents turn + she is dark so rokket is a 1 card combo to her

1x Trishula : Not to sure if we keep him around. Its a nice fusion target, it gives us a free search and lets us take our opponents good cards away. Also it gives the guardragons a good use if we dont go for five head. You can exchange him for another Pitsy if you want, which would be live under five head.

1x Striker Dragon : link 1. dragon. searches boot sector launch. the only thing this thing misses is a it pointing downwards

1x Underworld Goddess of the Closed World : The new card we try to abuse, or atleast flex with. We usually will always summon her with I:p but its not to hard  summon her with all the dragons and maids rotating at all times. She also doesnt care about DRM and all the annoying things being played. Laughing at Dragoon with her only being outed in battle

1x Link God Dragon/ Fiveheaded Link Dragon : We want to make him almost every turn, as your opponent will 99,99% not play anything that can out this thing. You will have a full grave for atleast 3-4 turns were you could just sit on it , but as you play maids, you will just combo again and again with a 5k beater who cant be stopped.

 

All in all this deck is just learning which card leads to which combo, but the end board you should aim for is usually Sphere + Sheou or ones you know the cards a little better you can end on

Borrel Savage + I:P + Five headed link dragon + Sheou = I:P + the maids summoned by Shoeu go into the new Link 5 and steal another Monster from the opponent

Borrel Savage + Sphere + Sheou

or if we eat to many hand traps, just a classic Sphere + Sheou

 

Afterwords : I am happy with how this deck developed over the past weeks and I think its close to being as good as this version can be. The deck rewards you for making decisions in either players turn while also having straight goals which you play towards. But in the end the best part of this deck is, having your opponents scoop instantly after playing five head / no fully realizing how immun it is / not wanting to belive what they read for a moment, while than seeing that they are now on the glock to out this thing or lose.

I think in all my games only 1-2 Persons were able to win after it was summoned. One was just stalling until I ran out of cards to banish other was a Kaiju top deck. So its still a good average of staying and winning you the game.

 

And thats my crap guide to Dragonmaid, you welcome.

    i’d cut changer over to 1 (can be searched w/chamber which elpy can summon) and also cut hospitality to 1 (same reason). You might say that hospitality is an extender but tidying does a better job since you are always going to need a discard!! I’d also add in world legacy guardragon since it can “move” elpy making it 2 extenders in 1 card and also add rokket synchron which can be used to go into chaos ruler and hot red dragon archfiend abyss also cut 5 headed link dragon for borrelsword it’s just way better

    Changeover to 1 is a possibility, however you would need to put one copy to the side deck, as with Shadoll and Crows running around you will see your one copy banished rather quickly if your opponent knows anything about dragonmaids.

    Hospitality to 2 I agree, and would also recommend everyone to only play 2. However for myself 3 feels better as I force often grind games with 5head and the third hospi keeps the grave full and allows to re build the board even late into the game when the opponent may already run out of steam.

    Legacy Guardragon is a good card, yes. But to be honest, its just not needed. We have enough extender, making it rare to not get the board we want and even now playing through hand traps is barely a problem. Its just not needed in a rokket version in my opinion. Dragunity one would be something else or more controll which cant extend on its own on a level the this version can.

    Rokket Synchron / Chaos Ruler / Hot red are cut as there is just no space for them in the extra deck, else gladly.

    5head and Borrelsword do not have the same purpos. Its like saying cut Unchained Abormination for Borrelsword in a live twin deck.

    5Head is something you make turn one to have a unbreakable board, which is literally unbreakable and than use the grind of the maids to push for game. Ending on a Borrelsword wouldnt help with anything, and having one more negate instead of 5head is also a much weaker endboard.

    And yes while Borrelsword can make it easier to push for game, 5head and maids are usually far enough to do it on their own as there are barely any decks which can put up a wall that doesnt die turn 3 after playing through 1-3 interrupts while trying to out 5head.

    I understand your points, but I really would recommend to watch my replay and than after you understand the combo path, to play a few games yourself with the deck. It will give you a different perspective on why 5head is even in here or I:P with goddess.

    I see, but why even make 5-head going 1st?? You can make a multiple negate board (seal + savage + tidying or even more than that if you can extend!) also legacy is needed!! As a dragon link player myself I can assure you it comes up more than you think. I’d cut nocto and play legacy for sure tho…
    Also why play the super poly stuff?? I though this was a combo deck right? I’d either make this a control deck (no dragons, only maids and traps/handtraps/stun cards) or make it a combo deck (no control stuff just extenders to make a multiple negate board)

    Its really hard to talk about this, if you never even tried playing it. But alright. Seal + Savage + Tidying? Thats a garbage board not gonna lie. Thats 2 bounce and 1 negate. While I can end with sphere + shoe + 5 head / Shoe + 5 head + I:P and other endboards which bring just as much interruption , but also have a unremovable 5k beater who has perfect zones and puts your opponent on the clock, while also outing any boss Monster they can make. Also it makes dark ruler no more / droplet and super poly completly useless as he is also uneffected by that.

    legacy is needed for your dragon link deck, because you literally lack the maids like nurse/ parlor to combo.

    saying you cut nocto is also pretty weird as you just talked about setting tidying, but you dont want protection for it and a free draw ? Also nocto is a high level dragon to fusion away if needed.

    Super poly ? well simple, because it destroys any dragon matchup often giving you shoe for free, removes stuff like sphere without letting it tribute and lets you fusion your maids in bp to otk. Also currently shadoll / invo / d link and other decks usually dont have a issue playing through 1 more hand trap , but die to one super poly. If the meta changes they can be dropped again.

    And yes its a combo deck , but it has enough combo cards. It literally has the room to play other stuff. It can hard summon a link 5 with a fusion underneath and possible a link 2 over it or under it. How far do you want to combo ? specially if your ideal endboard is sphere + tidying + savage ?

    Which is one of the reasons I dont mind facing D link. Even with the rare chance to neither draw phanta / super poly. That board is really breakable. While D link literally has no way to break my endboard. Even less if I side the koakimeiru dragon in.

    the only adventage really is that D link has a slight head start on consitency + being able to take a card with levi.

    But again, how is 1 negate 2 bounce , better than Uneffected boss monster which just runs over everything the next turn + 1 negate ? If we for fun say we couldnt go full combo either? How do you out it? Which deck that is currently meta can out it consistent?

    You are making the same board dragon link makes because this deck is basically a modified version of dragon link. Believe it or not Dragons have topped so many events because of not their endboard, but being able to consistantly set up negates after being hit with handtraps and interruption. You can also make an apollusa (3+ negates) or the Red dragon archfiend (Omni negate) if you run the dragon packages in this deck. The thing about dragon link (and this deck) is that you can go for bigger negate boards if you have more extenders or if your opponent has no handtraps. If your 5-headed dragon combo were to get hit by nib it would most likely be gg in the case of this deck but in the dragon link combo you will have seal before summon 5 giving you backup. Negates aren’t everything when it comes to competitive playability. Playing through disruption, handtraps and having good follow up is also important. Whatever the case, the main combo will ALWAYS end on seal + savage + tidying at the very least but can include more negates if more extenders are drawn (that is why world legacy guardragon is important). You don’t have to play the deck this way, I really like your build btw but i’m just trying to make it a little more competitive

    yes you’re right, dragon link excel not with their ceiling but with their persistency. And while most dragon decks will look very similar in their combo, which is obvious as long as elpy sticks around, this deck differs greatly in it’s endboard! Yes it could make savage, tidying and sphere as they only take up ED space – so why wouldn’t you include it – but it aims at a completely different board with a different playing style and that’s honestly more than most dragon decks do. Most dragon decks are just new versions of dragon link, like wow now they can make crystal wing in 5 (which is genuinely annoying) but they still aim to achieve the same, or at least similar endboard. However, ending on a tower with a 1 or more negates and insane recursive abilities which put your opponent on a timer is a very different approach, kind of similar to Marincess, which don’t aim at bringing out as much interruption as possible but instead turn the game into a tower defense game, where your opponent needs to use all their ressources to out your tower or they’re almost guaranteed to lose. You then use your few interruptions to prevent them from doing so and then punish them on your following turn. It’s a different play style and how many dragon decks have done that lately? I’d much rather watch this deck being played than watching the 10th iteration of dragon link boards. This very much deserves it’s own spot and saying to “just play dragon link” is like saying “why would you ever play x when you could play y” which is nonsense and doesnt further discussions

    Here the thing is, there is not much point is discussing how to make the deck more competitive, which Iam sure it can be. But you dont even try to understand the concept behind it or try it out. You just see the parts of Dragonlink and assume its a version of it. But Tbh Dragonmaids were always a thing inbetween combo and controll, and going deeper into the engine of the maids allows to not be dependant on all the cards D link uses.

    I can imagine you know your stuff around D link and how to make it a consitant deck, however when it comes to Dragonmaids I would advice you to maybe try and learn a bit more about them and understand why cards like nocto are more important here than for example in D link. Best would probably be if you join the discord and ask there for advice on how to get started.

    Afterwards you can try and maybe play this deck and its end board , before trying to compare it to the D link endboard which has a whole different goal.

    Also, yes this deck can combo with sphere before 5, specially as one endboard is literally turbo sphere in 3 summons and make 5 head underneath ? And also can play after Nibiru ? Specially as often you get a Shoe out before the fifht summon which makes Nibiru a non issue. Most likely the point were you are the most vunrable is before elpy when you havent spend all resourcess yet or after 5head when you set up the I:P or savage underneath it.

    At this point you lose a card but keep 5head and can just rebuild next turn, and you know you have a next turn as 99,9 % of decks you face CANT out 5 head , specially not in one turn.
