An Empty Jar deck is a type of Mill Deck that focuses on abusing the three Books that center around flipping monsters face-up/face-down.

By using these 3 Spells the player can reuse the effects of Needle Worm and (if using Traditional Format) Morphing Jar to mill out the opponent.

WARNING: Although EXTREMELY unlikely, Needle Worm can backfire if the opponent's deck contains Penguin Knight.

This deck is sometimes referred to as "Flip Trolls" or "Flip Mill".

Weaknesses

  • Skill Drain is a massive threat to this deck build, without any means of countering, as this is an instant loss whenever this is played against you. Mystical Space Typhoon is one of the very few counters to this, so it's recommended you side deck them in the rare occurrence your opponent plays these. Heavy Storm is also a popular choice as it can be used before going for the win. A counter to Skill Drain would be to play Book of Moon or Book of Eclipse after you flip summon because Skill Drain only negates face-up monsters effects. Trap Eater also works and the 1900 ATK will probably make your opponent focus on the treat to his life points instead of his deck and he if pops up another Skill Drain you can switch strategies and summon a Synchro beatstick
  • Be careful when using "Morphing Jar" and lay a few Traps, because this can help your opponent since they will also be drawing cards, which can be dangerous if they get cards like "Dark Hole".

Empty Jar FTK

The Empty Jar FTK build is a more focused version of Empty jar, which attempts to deck out the opponent in the first or second turn. The cards recommended below were added without regarding the card ruling on Xyz Material:

Xyz Materials are not treated as being on the field, as seen in the October/November 2011 issue of Shonen Jump and later confirmed by Konami.[1] When an Xyz Material is detached, any "leave the field" effects it may have are not activated, so for example, "Sangan" does not have its search effect activated upon being detached, and "Reborn Tengu" does not Summon a copy of itself when it is detached.

- See the section above for the "Normal" Empty Jar build.
