Happy New Year, duelists! I hope you all had a fantastic holiday season.

We got a whole new format over the month of December, and that created some major shifts in the competitive landscape. Instead of going over each deck and highlighting the changes, we're going to shake things up a bit.

While officially you can play anything you'd like, realistically you're probably not seeing much success right now if you aren't playing one of the big acknowledged decks: the Drytron, Virtual World, DInosaur and Eldlich variants. Looking at the Top Cuts from the North American and European Remote Duel Extravaganzas in December, as well as Luxury Championship IX, that statement's been borne out pretty solidly across a range of major events.

Let's just dig right in!

Decks To Beat

I don't think many active players are unaware, but there are lots of duelists always joining competition or returning to it. So for anyone who hasn't been watching, Drytron is the deck-to-beat in most current metagames.

Boasting ridiculous levels of consistency and power, along with some of the most versatile defensive options available, you're going to be hard pressed to find a better strategy to sleeve up for tournaments over the next few weeks. While Drytron has flaws, it's the deck-to-beat for a reason: with cards like Cyber Angel Benten, Manju of the Ten Thousand Hands, and Preparation of Rites, the whole deck is a pile of consistency cards. Check out Jesse Kotton's list below to see what I'm talking about.

Hanko did a fantastic job breaking down the winning decks from the latest Remote Duel Extravaganza in North America, but I wanted to follow up a bit! Like I said, Drytron's the elephant in the room followed closely by Virtual World. Having to combat True King of All Calamities alongside the sheer number of extenders the Virtual World deck plays is a real challenge if you run out of resources, or you can't keep up with the tempo these strategies are going to try and force on you.

Check out this list from the Extravaganza in North America to see what the deck looks like.

Eldlich's another key strategy to watch out for, in all its many flavors! Shaddolls, Invoked, Numeron, and Zoodiacs are all popular in different Eldlich variants, all for good reasons. Meanwhile Eldlich the Golden Lord and the supporting Eldlich engine provide a fantastic grind game, and an ability to extend duels almost indefinitely.

The only thing Eldlich lacks is a good supplementary engine. Eldlich variants are by far the weakest of the "triangle" of the big decks of the format, but you should respect the matchup regardless, and the number of different variants can offer some surprise factor if you play the deck yourself.

Decks To Avoid

There aren't many decks right now that I'd say "do not play this outright," as pretty much anything can mesh well with Eldlich and win games. Case in point? I got CRUSHED by Magical Musketeers with Eldlich earlier in the month. If that can work, the possibilities here are truly endless.

That said, I'd avoid playing Dragon Link and Infernoble Knights. They wind up on the wrong side of some common trends in the current format, trap cards especially; both decks struggle with Torrential Tribute and Needle Ceiling, which are back in tournament competition in recent events. There's a lot that just ruins your day as a Dragon or Noble Knight player.

When the new F&L List was revealed, lots of people wondered if banning Smoke Grenade of the Thief would knock Infernoble Knights out of competition, and yeah, it seems like we'll never see anything like this again:

Moving on, I was a huge fan of the pure Zoodiac deck in previous weeks. But new trends are making it much tougher to win with as time goes by. Players are refining their knowledge and getting better at playing Virtual World and Drytrons, and new advancements are popping up at increasing speed; for Zoo, that means you wind up feeling left in the dust. If you DO decide to play Zoodiac, I'd suggest you run a higher trap count and de-emphasize hand traps, since they create a lot of awkward, unworkable draws as games go on.

I'd also suggest that you avoid Dinosaur decks going forward too, as Drytron eats Dino DNA for breakfast. The Drytron's ability to do 237504375287 different things in a turn, while simultaneously losing nothing in the process, is just proving to be too much for Dinosaurs to handle. We're in a weird cycle of a format where suddenly competition has become much more combo-heavy, despite a continued focus on tempo. You'll want to be aware of that shift and let it guide how you make your tech choices and Side Decking decisions.

Decks You Should Respect

Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon should definitely be on your mind when you're preparing for any event, from a remote local to an Extravaganza. If you can't easily out Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon you might be signing up to have a bad time. Eldlich Dragoon's been very popular lately, especially the "pile" decks consisting of Shaddolls, Dogmatika, and the Dragoon engine. A flurry of options and a high trap count creates a situation where many players will only succeed if they hard draw their most important blowout cards.

Funnily enough, the high trap counts can create volatile situations for those players, since they'll be looking to go first and set up a big defensive line. If they're stuck going second instead, they could struggle to break established fields. That's why you see cards like Crackdown and Storming Mirror Force in competition. Avery Foster played the following list to fantastic success at the North Am Extravaganza:

Despite a lower power level and lower consistency than some of the top decks, Phantom Knights should be respected far more than they currently are. Throwing a billion free summons at your opponent and burying them in extenders is really nice, especially when you back it up with on-theme negation. Phantom Knights finished in Top Cut in one of the European Extravaganzas, leveraging a lot of niche combos that have gone unseen by most players. There's no de facto deck list for this right now, but be aware that this deck could be poised to see more play.

Even Paleozoic's doing well! Putting up consistent negations either in the form of your actual trap cards, Toadally Awesome, or even Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon, you're playing a pile full of threats. One neat thing with Paleozoic is that most players simply don't know how to play against it, because it's such a technically difficult deck to play correctly.
