Top 10 Side Deck Cards from YCS Knoxville

June 7th, 2019

Last weekend, the final YCS of the 2018-2019 Dueling season took place in Knoxville, TN, and while we provided, as always, the information on which Decks and strategies made it to the playoffs, what we’re unable to do on-site is provide information on the cards used in the Top 32 Duelists’ Side Decks, as our reporters are dedicated to bringing you all the playoff action. Now that the Deck Lists have been transported back to KDE-US HQ and reviewed, we can now provide some information that may or may not be useful to Duelists looking to compete in the upcoming WCQs: The 10 cards with the highest Side Deck usage rate among Duelists in the Top 32 of YCS Knoxville. None of this information will be attached to specific players, nor will we reveal the specific numbers of each card. The choice to adjust your preparations based on this list is yours and yours alone, but the data you’re about to read is true.

Here are the 10 most played Side Deck cards in the Top 32 of YCS Knoxville:

1 Artifact Lancea
2 Twin Twisters
3. TIE: Gnomaterial and Dinowrestler Pankratops
5. Ghost Ogre & Snow Rabbit
6. TIE: Droll & Lock Bird and Fantastical Dragon Phantazmay and Electric Virus
9. Mystic Mine
10. Denko Sekka

Good luck to all Duelists in their preparation for the World Championship Qualifiers!
