This week, Upper Deck has shared some great Deck Building Tips & Tricks for different deck archetypes to ensure you emerge from the Battledome victorious!

Traditionally, in most trading card games, there is a general array of varying types of decks that players can choose to play. Since the purpose of this article is to introduce this game specifically, I will just outline some archetypes that can be found in Defenders of Neopia.

An “archetype” in the context of trading card games simply defines what general game plan your deck is aiming to achieve. This implies that most of the cards you choose to include will actively progress that game plan (we will cover this in more detail in later sections).

Here are some archetype example you can find in the base set of Neopets Battledome TCG that might help you in focusing your deck strategy with a brief description of what it aims to achieve:

  • Fyora’s Battle Faeries – A combo deck that aims to chain multiple Battle Faerie equipment abilities to deal lots of damage and play lots of cards!
  • Aethia’s Nova Blade – A tempo deck that utilizes consistency in equipment and extra damage and healing to sustain through longer rounds.
  • Marina’s Powerful Potions – A control deck that takes advantage of Marina’s powerful ability to constantly succeed on potions, granting a wide array of options for varying decks.
  • Jhudora’s Aggressive Ghosts – An aggro deck that capitalizes on Jhudora and Ghost Neopets to maintain aggressive battles turn after turn.

Choose the proper Neopets, ensure they have the proper amount (and type) of Codestones, and provide them with the right Weapons, Food, and Legends to watch their back!
