Think you know Yu-Gi-Oh? Think again. Yu-Gi-Oh! Cross Duel is the latest title out of Konami’s card game franchise, and for the first time ever, up to four players can play at the same time. That’s a pretty big change, so you’re going to need a deck worthy of taking on the challenge.
That’s where we come in, with our Yu-Gi-Oh! Cross Duel tier list, ranking the best decks and duelists you can find inside the four-player card game title. We’ve also included a Yu-Gi-Oh! Cross Duel reroll guide so you can trade in your cards if you don’t like what you get the first time around, making it easy to pick up a deck loaded with firepower at the start of the game.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Cross Duel ace monster decks S-tier explained
Blue Eyes White Dragon – The OG dragon stands the test of time as the best all-out attacker in Yu-Gi-Oh! Cross Duel. With incredible attack stats, and destruction effects that activate on summoning, if you want to play Yu-Gi-Oh! as old school as possible, you can never really go wrong with a Blue Eyes beatdown deck.
Red-Dragon Archfiend – Aggressive players should seek out Red-Dragon Archfiend for its attacking prowess and its killer effect that destroys any defence position monsters on the field when summoned and at the end of your battle phase. This defence negation forces your opponents into head-to-head battle, and with Red-Dragon Archfiend’s monster stats, that can only play to your advantage.
Ojama King – If you want an alternative to the raw firepower of Blue Eyes White Dragon and Red-Dragon Archfiend, Ojama King’s control and disruption effects are second to none. It might be one of the more difficult decks, as well as Ojama King having a complicated summoning requirement of three Ojama monsters, but it’s worth it. If you can summon Ojama King you can lock your opponent out of summoning for their next turn with its ability, as well as close off a monster zone anywhere on the field.
