Pulling together a powerful N / R festival deck is surely at the top of every YuGiOh Master Duel player’s to-do list right now. The limited time event is live, and grants those willing to battle with specially crafted decks for a deluge of free gems and other prizes.
To help you get all you can from the N / R festival, we’ve written up this N / R festival deck list that’ll help you win games within the permitted perimeters.
N / R Festival deck: What is a Triamid deck?
For our N / R festival deck, we’ve chosen to go for a Triamid deck. Triamid cards are all rock types, and have effects that not only buff other Triamid cards specifically, but also other non-triamid rock monsters.
As such, we can use a majority of normal and rare Triamid cards to make sure our board is as tough as stone, then compliment them with some very powerful rock monsters that can make use of these buffs to take out the opponent.
The main method of providing these buffs is with Triamid field spells: Triamid Fortress, Triamid Cruiser, and Triamid Kingolem. In addition, when these are on the field they can provide all manner of handy bonuses, such as spell protection, card draw, and special summoning capabilities.

How to win with this Triamid Deck
While this deck obviously lacks some of the super rare and ultra rare powerhouses in the typical Triamid decks, it can absolutely wear opponents down due to how easy it is to summon hard to kill rock monsters. The other player will be spending their turns killing of cards like Sentry Soldier of Stone and Revival Golem over and over again, as you graveyard slowly builds up.
This gives you time to summon some powerful cards from your deck. Megarock Dragon gains strength with every rock monster you banish from your graveyard which works perfectly with this deck, while Invoked Magellanica is a powerful game ender if you manage to pull a polymerization.
As such, your game plan should be making use of your Triamid card effects whenever possible, keeping board advantage as much as possible, and holding fast against whatever your opponent throws down. Chances are you’ll win some games with a solid board full of normal monsters with those Triamid buffs, but in case you don’t you’ve got some heavy hitters to work towards too.
