Best Yugioh Forbidden Memory Decks (No Cheats) *REVISED*

yugi_and_meteor_b__dragon_by_riomak-d2690qp

Last weekend I lost to Seto 3rd in campaign, which really upset me. I duel against him like crazy in free duel precisely to prevent a situation like this and, well, it happened anyway. So I set to work making two new decks that would never fail me again.

Thunder Dragons
3x Meteor B. Dragon
3x Blue-Eyes White Dragon
3x Twin-Headed Thunder Dragon
3x Sanga of Thunder
3x Red-Eyes Black Dragon
3x Meteor Black Dragon
2x Skull Knight

3x Megamorph
3x Bright Castle
3x Dragon’s Treasure
3x Salamandra
3x Invigoration

3x Raigeki

2x Widespread Ruin

Yesterday, I defeated Seto 3rd 40 times with no losses. It is basically my last deck but with a few tweaks to it. Namely, I took out the Umi field spell and one of the traps, then replaced them with 2 Skull Knight. The dark warrior monk is a tech-in of sorts because of his guardian stars. Mercury helps it overcome your opponent’s Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon and Neptune helps it overcome Meteor B. Dragon.

Otherwise, I would get too many dead draws. Widespread Ruin can really kill you when you need an equip spell so I had to compromise. I tried adding more equip spells but I ended up drawing dead hands with no monsters. So I had to make use of experience.

Everything else functions like the old deck did: making a monster with over 4500 ATK. It can be a pain at times because Twin-Headed Thunder Dragon is too often too weak, unless I replaced the 2 Widespread Ruin with 2 Umi. Otherwise, I rely too much on Meteor B. Dragon. I’ll have to experiment with that.

In case the 2 Umi work better, I’ll just put it on the deck list above so I won’t have to write a billion new blogs. This deck is worse for campaign but would fare better in versus mode because most top duelists in this game seem to use many monsters of dark attribute.

Dark Dragons
3x Meteor B. Dragon
2x Blue-Eyes White Dragon
2x Metalzoa
3x Skull Knight
3x Zoa
3x Red-Eyes Black Dragon
3x Meteor Black Dragon

3x Megamorph
3x Bright Castle
3x Dragon’s Treasure
3x Dark Energy
3x Malevolent Nuzzler

3x Raigeki
3x Yami

Yesterday, I defeated Seto 3rd 20 times with no losses, and I defeated 20 more times today with no losses. I say probably because I won my duels more easily with this deck. It mostly boils down to the Yami field spell and many of my monsters having a Mercury guardian star. This way, Skull Knight and Zoa easily get an “unfair” 1000 ATK boost, helping it destroy Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon.

The downside? I can’t create an overpowered Meteor B. Dragon as easily as before. On the upside, I don’t have to rely on that poor dragon so much anymore. Skull Knight and Zoa take the game for me more often than you might think.  This deck is better for campaign because of the “unfair” ATK boost I mentioned before, but would fare worse in versus mode because my field spell would boost my opponent’s monsters.

My Best Yugioh Forbidden Memories Decks *REVISED*

yugi_and_meteor_b__dragon_by_riomak-d2690qp

Posted below are the best decks I could ever build for Yugioh Forbidden Memories, both for a deck I built without using any Gameshark cheats and a deck I built using cheats.

Natural Deck:
3x Meteor Black Dragon
3x Blue-Eyes White Dragon
3x Twin-Headed Thunder Dragon
3x Sanga of the Thunder
3x Red-Eyes Black Dragon
3x Meteor Dragon

 3x Megamorph
3x Bright Castle
3x Dragon’s Treasure
3x Invigoration
3x Salamandra

3x Raigeki
1x Umi

 3x Widespread Ruin

 I altered this deck by taking out the 3x Seiyaryu and 3x Skull Knight, replacing them with 3x Salamandra and 3x Widespread Ruin. I did not have enough power ups to beat Seto 3rd (with his Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon) consistently enough for my taste. Yes, I beat him with my old deck on a 20:1 ratio basis, but I beat with him with my new deck around a 25:1 ratio. It is slightly higher, and I can’t figure out any way to get higher without cheats. This is my very limit.

Skull Knight is a good tech-in for beating Meteor Black Dragons and Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragons, but I didn’t have room for him. Same with Seiyaryu; plus I don’t need it, since I have enough dragons to fuse with my Sanga of the Thunder to make Twin-Headed Thunder Dragons.

Widespread Ruin saved my life many times, since the opponent often has to waste a turn getting rid of it with Harpies’ Feather Duster or fodder. This gives me a little more time to get a good hand so I can play a strong combo. I usually set it on the first turn, or set it to protect a strong monster I have in play so Seto 3rd (or Nitemare) can’t kill it with Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon. If you want to beat this game consistently, you must always be ready to jump against a Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon.

 Gameshark Deck:
3x Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon
3x Gate Gaurdian
3x Meteor Black Dragon
3x Black Luster Soldier
3x Magician of Black Chaos

3x Megamorph
3x Bright Castle
3x Dragon’s Treasure
3x Dark Energy
3x Sword of Dark Destruction

3x Raigeki
3x Swords of Revealing Light
1x Dark Hole

3x Widespread Ruin

I edited the Gameshark deck by giving it a more definite theme: dragons with dark warriors, so I could make the deck more consistent. I could more easily match my monster with the proper equip spell to make it stronger. Black Luster Soldier and Magician of Black Chaos are weaker than Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth and Black Skull Dragon but they can easily become stronger with equips. I traded some strength for lots of speed.

Black Luster Soldier is the strongest warrior in the game after Gate Guardian, and both monsters combine with both Dark Energy and Sword of Dark Destruction. Magician of Black Chaos works as a solid tech-in since you can give it an extra attack boost against a Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon or Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth by choosing the right guardian planets when you play it.

Skull Knight also works fine, since it can subvert your opponent’s Meteor Black Dragon with the Neptune guardian planet, but cannot repel a Black Skull Dragon. I would say Skull Knight is slightly more useful than Magician of Black Chaos, since Meteor Black Dragon is a bigger threat later in the game, but I wanted to give my deck a bit of Atem’s character by putting both his ace monsters in it. Too each his own.

Best Yugioh Forbidden Memories Deck (With Cheats)

So you use a Game Shark to get the best cards in the game you cannot win naturally since grinding is soul-crushingly tedious? What is the best deck you can ever make? I have a suggestion:

Monsters:
3x Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon
3x Gate Guardian
3x Meteor B. Dragon
3x B. Skull Dragon
3x Blue-Eyes White Dragon
3x Magician of Black Chaos
3x Skull Knight

Equip Spells:
3x Bright Castle
3x Dark Energy
3x Dragon’s Treasure
3x Megamorph

Normal Spells:
3x Raigeki
3x Swords of Revealing Light
1x Yami

This deck has the strongest Dragon and DARK monsters possible in the game, especially Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon and Gate Guardian. I included B. Skull Dragon instead of Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth because you can equip the former with Dragon’s Treasure. Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth works too as it has more native strength but you can’t use it with half your equip spells, which makes me feel uneasy. 

Magician of Black Chaos and Skull Knight have strong guardian planets that help them slay the most powerful monsters your opponent can use against you. Both possess Mercury, helping them conquer Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon. Magician of Black Chaos has Mars, helping him defeat Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth and Skull Knight has Neptune, helping him defeat Meteor B. Dragon. They’re bascically anti-meta tech-ins in a time before the Yugioh metagame even existed.

You use the equip spells to power up your already colossal monsters to levels no computer opponent can match. You know you’re deep into this came when you consider 4500 ATK average and dismiss 3500 ATK as weak. Raigeki kills your opponent’s army and Swords of Revealing Light saves your life many times by stopping your opponent from attacking you for three turns. I included Yami in the deck to transform the field into a shadow terrain, giving Magician of Black Chaos and Skull Knight a boost.
