Do you have to have a side deck(i forgot if you have to or not
thekingsunites (1 month ago)
I don't know exactly how to side perfect, but I agree with siding for 2nd match, like imperial iron wall in true Draco because they always side evenly

Run triple evenly and triple ash in side 😂
TheSinnohKid (1 month ago)
one big rule i have for side decking, is try to play shit at 3 ofs if possible. if youre expecting a deck, and you know your deck has 3 interchangeable cards you can easily side out, put 3 of the side cards in your side deck. unless its limited in some way, try to play three.

My side deck is usually a smokescreen depending on the deck I wanna use (Kozmo, Dino, ABC ect) Its nice to keep stuff unpredictable
Elesa Brooks (1 month ago)
Or just run everything you need and use your side Deck as a way to change your Deck to have a slightly different playstyle by taking out and putting in certain cards.

Question about sidedecking: Should you ever put cards in the side deck that can help your engine for example adding a 3rd of a card or something of that sort
Romeo Barnes (1 month ago)
Saaim Qidwai the “3rd of” slot is usually reserved for a hand trap or mst you didn’t have room for without destroying your consistency. In other words the “3rd of” is for disruption, your engine should be in the main deck in its most consistent form because the engine makes the deck work. However, there’s nothing wrong siding extra engine pieces if your side deck strategy is “go faster.” Which is completely viable. Hieratics used go faster very well. You can also side pieces of another engine if you want to side into another deck. This is why playtesting is very important

What cards do got guys (comments) recommend side decking for a "Gem-Knights" deck?
TheRetroDudeAbides (1 month ago)
I didn't think BA effects activate if the card was discarded for a cost. I know the text states "when sent to the GY", but nothing on discarding as a cost.
TheRetroDudeAbides (1 month ago)
I'm gonna have to go over my slowly-building deck then. I've been reading through the card effects and whatever errata that has come out since two years ago, and haven't found a single bit of concrete wording on it, Alec. Which is confusing and annoying me, as the Extra Deck monsters need other BAs to summon with.
Alec Fields (1 month ago)
TheRetroDudeAbides That's why BA were nuts
Alden S Jones (1 month ago)
Help! I don’t know what I should run in my side deck! My deck is super basic and outdated, only made up of three Synchron Extreme Structure Decks. What should I put in my side deck.
Alden S Jones (1 month ago)
Yeah, I’m waiting for Needlefiber, and I’m not really planning on playing competitive.

MarhO_Ok (1 month ago)
Can you make a (How to side deck)
ProxymanDerk (1 month ago)
So yeah till this day my main problem is not building my side deck, my problem is knowing what cards to side out and the only way of solving this is by playing your deck until you know what cards are main engine and what cards not, what is suboptimal against a certain matchup and what it is good.

I use cyber dragons what should I put in my side deck ? I also use lightsworns qhat should i put in that side deck ?
yurtle the turtle (1 month ago)

alex rennie (1 month ago)
yurtle the turtle with cyber dragons can u go first or second with the deck Second u should watch what decks win tournments that way u know what to side For example given the right hand goin 1st i can stop trickstars and iv sided cursed seal of the forbidden spell for engage
Mr Svampbob (1 month ago)
New player alert! What is a side deck?
Alec Fields (1 month ago)
Mr Svampbob 15 cards that you can replace cards in your main deck with for games 2 and 3 in a match.
Cory N (1 month ago)
I like to treat my side deck like a tool box broken down into ratios. Three of board wipes, three of negates, three of removal, three of maybe recovery or draw power. Varying to compliment the deck in the format. And if there’s a free spot in a heavy board format, Ra to counter sphere mode.
Stanley Johnson (1 month ago)
If there ain't no secret or ghost rare beaver warrior in your side deck then of course you're not going to win. That's common sense.
Romeo Barnes (1 month ago)
This may be another video but you guys should talk about siding for player tendencies.(this is really important at the local and regional level where you see the same guys every week and every month)
Snap Back (1 month ago)
I play Paleozoic and I know every game 2/3 I know they siding red reboot so I side in wire tap and red reboot to use vs there red reboot
David Hoch (1 month ago)
It's also important to build a deck with some cards that you can afford to side out. Sometimes people will build a deck with 40 cards that are all necessary to make the deck work, and that makes siding out difficult. I recommend trying to build decks of 30-35 cards and then include things like floodgates or extenders that can be sided out easily if need be.
Altigue (1 month ago)
side deck 101: Generic Hand Traps for going second, Solid Counter Traps for going first, Kaijus if your deck struggles with outs to big monsters, Backrow hate for backrow decks.

What kind of side deck should i have? if i am useing slash draw deck
Treetoplook G (1 month ago)
Games are won with side-decks
Nick (1 month ago)
2x sphere mode, 2x called by the grave, 1x hole 1x raigeki, strikes, imperial order, antispell and maybe some spicy tech
Eragon Williams (1 month ago)
This video was honestly really helpful to me, because I really do struggle with side decking
Romeo Barnes (1 month ago)
Eragon Williams it’s really hard with some decks. Don’t feel bad. And siding during the match is even harder, because in a lot of cases you have to side for the player’s tendencies.(this applies more to the local level, if you guys duel each other every week you’ll need to do this, but it can be applied if you and your opponent frequent the same regional circuit).
noname144able (1 month ago)
Haven't even finished building the main and extra deck, let alone the side deck...*sob*
Luciano Benevole (1 month ago)
I play Paleo what are good cards to have in my side? Other than kaijus
DADDY GAMECIEL (1 month ago)
Luciano Benevole O
Romeo Barnes (1 month ago)
You can also side into Frog Control or Frog OTK with D.E.S. Frog.
Snap Back (1 month ago)
Red reboot, shared ride, imperial order, hand traps, rivalry of da warlords, n more traps/floodgates maybe treeborn frog
Romeo Barnes (1 month ago)
Luciano Benevole typhoon(blows up their floodgates), hand traps, Floodgate traps(particularly anti-spell fragrance), magic planter (removes your floodgate after it’s done it’s job), Twin Twister/Phoenix Wing Wind Blast(the discard is gold and both are removal, in the case of Phoenix Wing Blast it’s ultra versatile), Wire Tap(for the reasons mentioned in this video)

You can also side chaos monsters
Dusty Musty (1 month ago)
Also, anti-spell and/or imperial order
Dusty Musty (1 month ago)
Saran twin twisters, kaijus (the dark if you use allure, but I would use an interrupted kaiju slumber package), cherries if you have extra deck space, shared ride, majesty’s/vanity’s fiend, jinzo, waking the dragon (maybe), droll if you aren’t maining them

How the Deck do I Side Heck!?
Arkaliouxse Wibaut (1 month ago)
Or: the how Heck I do Deck side
Romeo Barnes (1 month ago)
The only issue I have with this video, is that you guys didn’t talk about transition side decks. I play Volcanic Control and side into chain burn. So much fun.
.... what the heck is a side deck? There are more pendulum monsters besides pendulum machine?... only deck that I recognized was the zombie and even that that's not the full deck name. I stopped paying attention to Yu-Gi-Oh not long after the three Egyptian god cards were introduced... so this video put up a lot of question marks
Romeo Barnes (1 month ago)
You’ve never played in a tournament
David Hoch (1 month ago)
Side decks have been around since the start... You have 15 cards you can exchange with cards in your main deck to tailor your strategy for your opponent's deck during games 2 and 3 of a match.

You should talk about switching your entire strategy with your side for a surprise factor
yukureimu (1 month ago)
I play Volcanics with either a Train Engine (pun intended) and interchangeable Paleozoics Marrella staple regardless cuz dump Reloa- Nuke Button and Paleo Oleno-MST. Added Wetlands for the paleo SScreen cuz beatdown
Elesa Brooks (1 month ago)
I do this with a Synchro Deck I have in Pendulum Format that is a half Synchron half Stardust Deck, but I can completely change it to full Synchron by using the side Deck. I've also done this to change my Dark Magician Deck to an Exodia Deck that ran pretty consistently.
Altigue (1 month ago)
yukureimu I agree, smokescreening is a very skillful and viable strategy in competitive play. Siding out an entire engine or 2 in your deck may be the biggest game changer and sink a duel if you side in a bunch of power cards that you can abuse.
SageofSnow (1 month ago)
Thank you for this video! I was really considering reevaluating my side deck after playing locals, and this was extremely helpful with explaining the siding thought process between going first or second.
Anthony Zieska (1 month ago)

Condescending Potato (1 month ago)
I feel like the Lair of Darkness deck is the easiest to side with (as in when your playing it), because you can side out your viruses for others. You can also play board wipes because you don't play many monsters. What I do as well is I side cards like Secret Barrel for going into time, because you can search them with Lilith. Would love to hear people's thoughts on this, especially from other Lair players.

What side deck cards are good for Rokkets?
Julio Huerta (1 month ago)
And board wipes like dark hole(because rokkets float) and raigeki
Julio Huerta (1 month ago)
No problem also side for going second because your opponent will realize you like to go first and make you go second game 2 in which case bring in handtrap ash blossom ghost orge impermence etc, also board breakers sphere mode lava golem kaiju, spell and trap hate twin twister, cosmic cyclone, etc
Phantom_Pixeled (1 month ago)
Julio Huerta thanks for helping me
Julio Huerta (1 month ago)
Also scapegoat helps rokkets Because one card barreload dragon
Julio Huerta (1 month ago)
Cards that are good going first stuff like scapegoat(if willing to find extra deck space) solemn cards,floodgates (anti-spell imperial order etc) called by the grave when your opponent goes second to stop their handtraps torrential tribute (one of my favorite tech in rockets because it doesn't hurt the archetype because they float)
Neptune Heart (1 month ago)
