Bakura Anime Deck


It’s no secret by now that Bakura is one of my favorite duelists ever. He appeals to me because he is a very devious strategist who manipulated opponents into triggering near unbreakable locks and because he changed decks throughout the series. He used a disruption deck in Duelist Kingdom focusing on low-level effect monsters, then an occult deck in Battle City that used Destiny Board, and finally a zombie lock deck that decked out opponents.

Below, I brought together the best elements of all his decks into one great deck, one he might use if he ever returns on screen, which is unlikely to happen but cool to imagine. Here, Bakura uses a deck that focuses on three strategies: 1) disrupting opponent’s plays by discarding cards from their hand and deck 2) controlling opponent’s plays with occult cards that draw strength from the graveyard and continuous burn cards 3) fodder fiend monsters to fill up the graveyard and reviving cards. Sadly, I had to leave Destiny Board out since it’s too impractical for the deck to function. Bakura still can deck out and burn opponents though.

Cards with a star* on them are cards Bakura never used in the series but I added them because they compliment the strategies of his new deck. There are only six such cards, keeping the integrity of Bakura’s style intact. The deck includes 3 Morphing Jar and 3 Dark Spirit of the Silent even though Bakura only used 2 of each in the series because it is very likely Bakura held 3 in his deck as they would fully compliment his strategies.
