Summoning Exodia is something many duelists dream about; The all-powerful forbidden one has been an iconic monster in both the anime and the TCG since his original inception. In this guide, we’ll show you how to build and play an ultimate Exodia The Forbidden One deck in Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel.

Building The Exodia Deck

Exodia’s playstyle is simple; If you have the card Exodia The Forbidden One and all of his additional body part cards in your hand, you win the duel. Because of this, the Exodia deck has one goal; Draw, draw, draw your cards until you have the entire Forbidden One built in your hand.

This deck makes use of powerful card-drawing mechanics and life point protection spells to keep you in the game until Exodia is in your hand. If you play it right, you can potentially win with this deck on turn one.

If you need a card pack to draw from to get your Exodia cards, try The Great Olds set.

Playing The Exodia Deck

The OTK Exodia deck is surprisingly simple to play. One of the strongest cards in this decklist is Royal Magical Library; each time you cast a spell on this monster, you place a spell counter on this card. After three spell counters are on this card, you can trade them in to draw a card. This is an incredibly powerful effect when paired with this deck’s huge amount of card drawing spells.

Use Broken Bamboo Sword and Cursed Bamboo Sword to continuously play your Golden Bamboo Sword spell card, which allows you to draw 2 cards as long as you have a Bamboo Sword equipped to your cards. This will give you easy draw power and allow you to keep stacking spell counters on your Royal Magical Library.

Blue-Eyes White Dragon and The White Stone of Legend exist to easily summon monsters for your Bamboo Sword spells. Blue-Eyes can also be used to activate the Trade-In spell, which allows you to discard 1 level-8 monster to draw 2 cards.

To keep you safe from your opponent’s attacks and stack more counters on Magical Library, use the Chicken Game field spell. This card makes it so the lowest health player can’t take any LP damage. With Upstart Goblin, you’ll always have less life points than your opponent, so you won’t take any damage Once per turn with Chicken Game, you can spend 1000 life points to draw a card, keeping you invulnerable to LP damage and drawing more cards. This is an insanely powerful addition to your Exodia deck.

Linkuriboh is included as an added defense in case you don’t get the perfect draw on turn one. The power in this deck lies in its speed. Many of these spells can’t be interrupted by the opponent’s spells and most of the deck can be played in a single main phase.

  1. yugi moto

    thanks for the deck i love it it is expensive but is literally instant wins

  2. Fizz

    Tried this deck, seems to be missing some strategy.

  3. Bob

    The chicken game doesn’t seem to help because it can be destroyed by the other person. I agree, I can’t seem to get the routine figured out. Also, the triple tactic card just seems like a waste

  4. Sayargh

    This deck is awful, I wasted so many cards making it. I haven’t won a single time.


  5. Upset

    So quick question. How are you supposed to actually use this deck? I am always getting garbage hands and have only actually won once using it

  6. IHateExodia

    why the [family friendly word] would you share the most toxic deck with the world like that

    1. Iloveexodia

      What’s wrong with it?

    2. Beastmode

      Bruh hes just showing people how to make it you had to search it to find it.
