Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links: Better decks

Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel links is one of the most recent iterations of the brand in the world of video games and is a title that allows the player to experiment and create decks to play both against artificial intelligence and against the computer. Unlike the very recent Cross Duel (here the guide to the best decks of the title) the gameplay is the classic one of the saga: two players challenge each other with decks of forty cards to see who is the best on the field, in a challenge to the last life point.

Knowing all the rules of the game may not be enough to lead the player to victory: the great variety of decks and the huge number of cards available to human imagination is what can make the difference between victory and defeat.

For this reason, today we are going to discover who they are the best decks of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links, taking a close look at five different ones.

HOU allows you to finish the first round without letting the other players activate combos: from then on, all you have to do is set some win condition using the cards in your hand to gain an advantage over the other players.
