Deck Builder

Gamepress Duel Links Deck Simulator 1

The Deck Builder section is where you can add cards to your deck. It is further split into three sections. They are, from left to right: Filters, Main/Extra Deck, and Card List.

The Card List section, located on the right, contains a list of every card currently in the game. To add a card to your current deck, simply click on the card's image. The list may also be narrowed down from the "Filters" section.

The Filters section, located on the left, contains several filters to make browsing the card list easier. At the very top is a search box that you can use to search card titles. Below that are filters that can be toggled on/off for narrowing down the list to specific card types.

The Main/Extra Deck section contains your currently selected cards. Like in the real game, your main deck may only hold up to thirty cards, while your extra deck may hold up to five. In addition, neither deck may hold more than three copies of a card. To remove a card from your deck, click the white "x" icon on the top right of the card you want to remove.

Deck Simulator

Gamepress Duel Links Draw Simulator

After adding cards to your deck, you can use the Deck Simulator to simulate how your draws throughout a duel will go. To use the simulator, you must have at least four cards added to your Main Deck. The first time you click the "Draw" button, it will draw four cards - your opening hand. Every subsequent click will draw one card, stopping when the deck runs out. Clicking the "Reset" button will reset the deck and your drawn cards. Adding/removing a card from the Main or Extra deck will also the deck simulator.
