Complete Deck Lists by Type

A Virus Control Deck focuses around these 3 Trap Cards:

A Infernity deck can use "Virus" cards with relative effectiveness due to the fact that they can churn out high-attack DARK Synchro Monsters relatively quickly.

"Crush Card Virus" needs a DARK monster with 1000 ATK or less; "Deck Devastation Virus" needs a DARK monster with 2000 ATK or more and "Eradicator Epidemic Virus" needs monsters with 2500 ATK or more. Suitable cards include:

Recommended Cards

DARK 1000 ATK or below

DARK 2000 ATK+

Dark 2500 ATK+

Recommended Monsters




Cards that lower/raise ATK will also make it able to be used, if the ATK requirements are not met. For example, "Vorse Raider" has 1900 ATK points. Equipped with "Black Pendant" it can be used with "Deck Devastation Virus", and if it is targeted by "Shrink" it can be used with "Crush Card Virus". The use of "Mystic Plasma Zone" enables a variety of monsters to be used with "Eradicator Epidemic Virus". Similarly, "Mucus Yolk", "Plague Wolf", and "Prometheus, King of the Shadows" can raise their ATK with their own effects, thus allowing them to fulfill the requirement for almost any of the three Viruses. "Winged Minion", in addition to being a possible tribute for "Crush Card Virus", can be tributed to add 700 ATK/DEF points to any Fiend-type monster. To protect your Virus cards, "Dark Bribe", "Seven Tools of the Bandit", "Skill Drain", "Divine Wrath" and "Double Snare" are all good cards to have ready. Virus Control Decks can also use Milling cards to leave your opponent's hand and field lacking. Should you use multiple Viruses' Lingering Effects with cards like "Morphing Jar" or "Present Card", your opponent's new hand may be destroyed altogether, and your opponent may be left handless during their Draw Phase.
