Picture of Idiots Guide to Making a Yugioh Deck

this guide will show you how to build a yugioh deck to play with. also this is my first instructable so i hope you like it. this instructable is based on you knowing how to play and the different parts of a card.

Step 1: Pick a Monster Atribute

first we need to pick a monster atribute you want to base your deck around. the atribbutes are dark, light, fire, wind, water,and earth. there is also divine but not many cards have that attribute.

Step 2: Optional: Type Centered Deck

this is an optional step. if you do this one you can ignore the step 1. a type centered deck is bvased on card that all have the same type such as a zombie deck or a pyro deck. if you do this step it will be alot harder to build your deck to work well but if it does it is usually realy realy powerfull. also there are subtype based decks. these arn't always as powerful but they halarious to play cause they can really tick of your opponent. one that is really powerful is the gemini deck or a deck centered around lightsworn or gladiator beasts. they are realy powerful. My favorite type centered deck is the toon monster deck because of its fast attacking. The gemini monster picture isn't a real gemini monster.

Step 3: Balance It

A good deck is always baalanced. My ratio is usually 20 monsters to 20 spell and traps although you can move to morte of one card or the other slightly but do not stray very far from this number or your deck will bew unbalanced.

Step 4: Start Playing

knex obsessed (author)2009-10-04

All Divine cards are.

You forgot about the Objection! one.

eminem234 (author)2009-07-28

yeah, what about fusions. i am an experienced player, but i don't seem to havea really good deck, i mean it is good enough to beat someone in a duel, but i don't know how many fusions i should have in my deck. oh, and this is a good instructable for beginners and middle class players. it was very helpful in many ways for me at least.

BTrueK (author)eminem2342009-12-19

 You don't keep your fusions in your deck. You keep all your fusion cards that you could possibly use (i.e. have both the monster cards and spell card in your deck for) in a separate deck call your fusion deck, which you keep off to the side. You don't shuffle these or anything, they are just there if you have the opportunity to use them. They aren't really that useful in my opinion, but that might just be my play style.

My deck totally rules!

Bobcorncob (author)2009-06-11

I have quite a few bones to pick with this instructable: 1. It's not "alot harder" to build your deck on a type. Actually, it depends on the type. Machines, Dinosaurs, and Dragons are a few easy ones. 2. Why didn't you combine steps 1 and 2? Just say "Base your deck on a type or attribute." 3. Why even mention Divine? There are 3 cards with the Divine attribute, and they're the god cards that say "These cards cannot be used in a duel."

1. true but i was thinking more of gemini or toon. 2. good idea. 3. not true the gx gods are playeble and they say divine.

1. In that case, it is hard. Sorry about that one.
2. Glad to see you agree, but it's already been posted, so...
3. That's on the show. Have a link to a picture of a real god card.
It says in the bottom right corner.

oh ok sorry about 3

naruto the ninja13 (author)2009-05-30

i use a beatdown deck... lotsa powering up cards and powerfull monsters no real acutall theme...

thats a good way to go too cause then your ready for almost anything.

lemonie (author)2009-04-03

You might understand this but I don't. The most I've got with respect to actually building the deck is keep a good balance of cards. You could add a lot more detail with regard to how the deck construction affects game play, i.e. to say more about step 3. And if you consider that a lot of people here are much older than you, it would help to explain what the game is and roughly how you play it (I've got a good enough idea) L

if you didnt read the first slide it states that you must already know how to play and that you know you must have atleast 40 cards in your deck but the third step thing i get and ill try to work on it.

I did read all the slides, but I don't already know the game. Thanks for the reply L
