Want to become the King of Games, but you don’t know what to play? Meta-Man has you covered! Having scoured the internet for all the best Yu-Gi-Oh decks that the world can offer, Meta-Man has everything you need to get started on your Yu-Gi-Oh journey.

Aside from the heart of the cards – you have to have that yourself.


Eldlich has been a strong contender in the Yu-Gi-Oh meta for a while now. It is a deck that can be easily customized, added to different decks, and has generated so many different archetypes that it can be hard to keep track. But, there is a small amount of cards that are necessary to make this deck work.

The key to Eldlich’s versatility is it’s great ability to generate recursion. There are plenty of options to help get Eldlich The Golden Lord on the board, as well as to help with other Zombies. Add in Zombie World to the mix, and suddenly your opponent cannot trigger their own deck engines. Combo decks that require you to have a specific card type aside from Zombies will be fumbling all the way to your victory.

Key Cards For the Deck:

  • Eldlich The Golden Lord
  • Uni-Zombie
  • Zombie World

Virtual World

Virtual World is the king of combo deck’s in the current meta game. The aim of the deck is to get to True King of All Calamities in one turn.

That’s right. One. Turn.

The magic is in the synergy of Virtual World Xiezhi – Jiji, Virtual World Mai-Hume – Lulu, and Virtual World Gate – Qinglong. These three cards are able to bounce each other from the field to the graveyard and back again to help keep board presence going. Jiji and Lulu also make key summoning material to get into Stardust Charge Warrior, Ravenous Crocodragon Archethys, and eventually XYZ summoning into True King.

But what happens if True King gets Nabiru’ed or otherwise bounced from the field? No problem – just switch out the True King for a Sacred Tree Beast, Hyperyton, and you’re still going to have some control over the board. Bring out True King the next turn, and you will have some heavy hitters to contend with in the early game.

Key Cards For the Deck

  • Virtual World Xiezhi – Jiji
  • Ravenous Crocodragon Archethys
  • Virtual World Mai-Hume – Lulu
  • Stardust Charge Warrior
  • Virtual World Roshi – Laolao
  • True King of All Calamities
  • Virtual World Gate – Qinglong
  • Sacred Tree Beast, Hyperyton
  • Virtual World Gate – Chuche
  • Virtual World Kyrubi – Shenshen


Drytron is a blue-control players dream. The Dryton combo helps make sure your opponent doesn’t get to use any monster effects, traps, or spell cards. Mix that with some great counter cards to negate Ash Blossom & Joyous Spring, then your opponent is going to have a hard time getting any ground on the board.

Dryton also has a lot of build ability. If you are able to trigger either rituals or monster effects to get into Drytron Meteonis Draconids, you have one powerful creature your opponent has to face off against.

The biggest difficulty facing this deck is getting all the appropriate pieces. Like any combo deck, you need a reliable engine to keep everything working. For Drytron, if you want everything working properly, you have to spend more money the best results.

Key Cards For the Deck:

  • Drytron Zeta Aldhibah
  • Cyber Angel Benten
  • Drytron Alpha Thuban
  • Drytron Delta Altais
  • Cyber Angel Natasha
  • Drytron Gamma Eltanin
  • Herald of Perfection
  • Eva
  • Herald of Ultimateness
  • Dawn Knight
  • Herald of Orange Light
  • Dawn of the Herald
  • Union Carrier
  • I.P. Masquerana
  • Drytron Meteonis Draconids
