New Players Deck Structure

A deck aimed at new players. The deck is used to summon Normal Monsters, Effect Monsters, Ritual Monsters, Fusion Monsters, XYZ Monser and Pendulum Monsters. Synchro types are left out as I would consider them more advanced. A Synchro version of this deck can be found here.
The aim is to let new players easily understand these different types of summons. View the combo section to learn more on summoning these different types.

Potential Combos
DragonPulse Magician in Left Pendulum Zone + Timegazer Magician in Right Pendulum Zone Ability to special summon any monsters from your hand (excluding Black Luster Soldier).
King of the Swamp + Goddess with the Third Eye Easily fusion summon with either Time Wizard or Baby Dragon. King of the Swamp can also be used to search out Polymerization from your deck to create Thousand Dragon.
Pendulum Summoning LVL4 Monsters Once you have a Pendulum Scale set, you can easily special summon multiple LVL4 monsters to then easily combo an XYZ Summon.
Manju of the Ten Thousand Hands + Black Luster Soldier/Black Luster Ritual Easily search either Black Luster Soldier or Black Luster Ritual for an easy Ritual Summon.
Elder Entity Norden + Instant Fusion When you have a lvl 4 monster in your graveyard you can use Instant Fusion to bring out Elder Entity Norden to special summon a lvl 4 monster from the graveyard. This then allows you to Rank 4 XYZ summon.

    For sure let us know how he got on with it! The deck might need some refinements.

    Thanks for checking it out and pointing this out to me. There was actually a mistake in the deck, Gem-Knight shouldn’t have been in the extra deck. It was supposed to be Elder Entity Norden. This allows for potential Rank 4 XYZ Summons by using Instant Fusion to bring out Elder Entity Norden and then using its ability to special summon from the Graveyard.

    Hello Genesisbits,

    I know this post is a little bit old, but I’m hoping you can help me out as I’m trying to get back into Yu-Gi-Oh. I was trying to add Elder Entity Norden using YGOPro2, but none of the banlists (with the exception of ‘No Banlist’ and ‘N/A’) allowed even 1 copy. I looked on the Yu-Gi-Oh wiki and it looks like it should be limited (only 1 copy) in the TCG Traditional banlist. In addition, Daigusto Emeral can only be added when using the OCG banlist (which makes sense based on the Yu-Gi-Oh wiki), but it should also be available as limited (only 1 copy) in the TCG Traditional banlist. Am I doing something wrong? Or should this deck-list be updated – and if so, what are some replacements I should make?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hey Darkish,

    Norden is currently fully banned in both TCG/OCG. It’s limited in TCG Traditional but Traditional is a dead format that is neither official nor played anymore. Advanced is what you need to look at.

    You can see from our database that Norden is banned in both TCG/OCG:

    I recommend using this deck in an AI duel in an older YGOPRO Percy clint (which has AI modes). This isn’t recommended for online play.

    You could also open up two YGOPRO clients side by side and play against yourself in a LAN mode to practice the deck.

    Thousand-Eyes Restrict is a possible replacement for Norden. Since you can instantly summon it with Instant Fusion and then use his effect on board before he gets destroyed at the end of the turn (it’s to showcase what Instant Fusion can potentially do).

    Hey YGOPRODeck (not sure if GenesisBits),

    Thanks for the crazy-fast response, much appreciated! Didn’t even think to check back that soon.

    Okay, good to know about the TCG Traditional format being unofficial, thank you for the clarification on that.
    I’ll swap in Thousand-Eyes Restrict for Norden. As for Daigusto Emeral, is there not really a solid replacement?
    Is there a good reference resource that I can look into for how to set what decks an AI uses for YGOPro, how to set which banlist to use, etc.?

    Thanks for all of the help, it is very much appreciated,

    Hey Darkish (yep, I am GenesisBits too),

    Replacements for Daigusto Emeral could be any of the following (since it is just showcasing generic Rank 4 XYZ plays):

    – Castel, the Skyblaster Musketeer
    – Number 101: Silent Honor ARK
    – Number 82: Heartlandraco
    – Number 39: Utopia (which can then by himself XYZ into Number S39: Utopia the Lightning)
    – Number 103: Ragnazero

    The newer versions of YGOPRO so far all use an Online AI which is determined by the server with no way to set what deck they use manually (unless you choose from pre-defined server decks).

    If you use the old version of YGOPRO Percy (pre-link format) then you can see all the AI settings pre-duel.
