Complete Deck Lists by Type

A anti-meta deck is any deck that is built to counteract the most popular decks being played.

There are many different Anti-Meta decks, such as "Little City", "Gadget Oppression", and "Stun". The usual theme of Anti-Meta decks is to prevent the opponent's Special Summon, as many current decks in the meta focus on Special Summon. Some Anti-meta focuses on removing from play your opponent's monster since most meta decks require the graveyard to work or can't function while Removed from play. This changes occasionally every banlist and usually isn't the same every banlist. The Current Meta appears to be Metalfoes, Paleozoic frogs, Heroes, Mermail, Majespcter, and Burning abyss . There are also many rogue decks splashed in such as the Lightsworn, Shiranui, and Frog decks.

  • maxx c allows you to draw a card every time your oppnent specail summons during the turn you discard it. this is great, becuase almost every meta deck specail summons, and you can use this to conter big first turn plays where your oppenent specail summons lots of monsters
  • the kaiju monsters are summoned to your oppenonets side of the field by tributing thier monsters. this is good at getting rid of monsters that are restitant to other types of removal.
  • Banisher of the Radiance is like a Macro Cosmos except it is a monster, this card can be quite annoying if you can keep it long enough for your opponent to remove vital cards from their deck by milling. it is good agans't lightsworn(which mill their cards) and burning abyss(which uses thier effects when sent to the graveyard)
  • Thunder King Rai-Oh is arguably one of the best anti-meta monsters, with 1900 ATK, it can also jam Reinforcement of the Army, terraforming, Charge of the Light Brigade, speedroid terrortop, E - Emergency Call and other cards that add cards from your deck to your hand other than drawing. It can also be sent to the graveyard to negate a Special Summon which can usually be game ending.
  • anti spell fragrance is a good card to use agasn't pendulums.
  • Shrink is a good anti-meta card because it can be used to destroy monsters with high ATK and are out of your monster's reach like Goyo Guardian.
  • Burden of the Mighty can be used to slightly weaken your opponent's monster and can be combined with King Tiger Wanghu for a wider range.
  • Book of Moon can flip a card face-down and can save you from different situations.
  • Enemy Controller can switch the position of a monster when about to attack or your can tribute a monster and take control of a monster for the turn.
  • Dimensional Fissure will remove from play all Lightsworns or infernoids your opponent mills, and stops burning abyss effects
  • Lightning Vortex, raigeki, or dark hole can be used to clear your opponent's field of monsters.
  • Necrovalley can negate Dark Armed Dragon's effect and other monsters that rely on the graveyard.
  • Royal Decree is a good anti-meta card mainly because most decks use traps and negating them can damage the deck a lot and your opponent will usually be defenseless.
  • Bottomless Trap Hole can be used in response to a special summon and remove it from play instead of normally sending it to the graveyard.
  • Macro Cosmos removes from play every monster that goes to the graveyard, most of the meta deck these days send a lot of monsters to the graveyard or can get harmed when monsters are removed from play.
  • Divine Wrath can negate a monster effect with a cost of just discarding one card which can save you from losing.
  • Torrential Tribute can ruin your opponent's swarming just by chaining this card to a summon.
  • Dimensional Prison can save your monster and remove from play your opponent's monster at the same time.
  • Threatening Roar and Waboku are chainable traps that can make you survive the battle for 1 extra turn.
  • Phoenix Wing Wind Blast can spin a card to the top of your opponent's deck so they can't draw a new card for the next turn. it is good with decks that benift when their cards are sent to the grave yard, like burning abyss
  • Compulsory Evacuation Device can do almost the same thing except it goes to the hand which is good for getting rid of Stardust Dragon.
  • Skill Drain is a great Anti-Meta card. It takes away all of the power from the decks out there today. If they bring out a Murmillo and you use skill drain you now have a free attack target.
