Introduction to Cyber Dragons in Master Duel

Difficulty: Easy - Medium

Deck Type: Aggro/Combo

Cyber Dragon (Cydra) is one of the easier archetypes to play and is quite linear in our ideal game plan. We focus on being able to take out all 8000 of our opponent’s LP in a single turn. Although it has tools to win a long duel, this deck wants to and can kill your opponent quickly. Cydras mainly use Link and Xyz Summoning to help them reach a board to One Turn Kill (OTK), and a lot of the damage comes from our primary Fusion boss monster, Chimeratech Rampage Dragon.

Crafting & Building the Deck

Luckily for us, it’s relatively cheap to build Cydra (assuming you have staples). Almost all our engine pieces are in the Pearlescent Cyber Dragons secret pack and Structure Deck: Cybernetic Successor. To start, you can craft Loading... and once you get the cards in those packs, you need to craft Loading... , Loading... , Loading... and Loading... .


If you’re new to the game and like fast damage decks, Cydras are a good and cheap deck to start with.

Main Deck

Before we get into explanations, let's go over some terms.

  • Baby Cydra: Cyber Dragon monsters that copy the “Cyber Dragon” name as any of their effects. They’re treated as “Cyber Dragon” on the field and in the GY, but that effect does not apply in the hand, deck, while banished, or when set face-down.

  • OG/OG Cydra: Refers to the Level 5 Cyber Dragon.
