So I am in the process of making an anti-meta deck, does anyone have any ideas on what I could use?

I think Banisher of the Radiance, King Tiger Wangu and Vanity Fiend are the key cards here but I need to find ways of keeping them on the field long enough.

I use other cards such as Fossil Dyna which can be devastating to my opponent and Grand Mole to get rid of powerful cards.

It works at times, however the deck lacks any real chemistry, probably because it is more down to preventing your opponent from special summoning, rather than doing any attacking directly.

Cheers.

I have what I can say the ultimate Antimeta Deck. Unfortunately, I never won against Qliphort with this one. Actually I won only once against it:

Royal Oppression

1. Negate Special Summons done.
2. A bit of swarming done - Quick Summon
3. Banish with attack lock done - Gravekeeper's Servant combos.
4. Draw Problems? Done. Card of Sanctity and Pot of Greed
5. Normal Summon overpowering you? King Tiger Wanghu + Burden of the Mighty.
6. Cannot be targeted, destroyed by battle or by card effect? Done. Beckon to Darkness and Briar Transplant - if I have updated it.
7. Opponent using Cyber Dragon? Chimeratech Fortress Dragon finishes it.
Now this is how I play:

As the meta changes, so does the anti-meta deck.

For the current format, I'd recommend Tribute Stun. It uses Majesty's Fiend, Vanity's Fiend, and various Monarchs along with their support cards such as Stormforth and Soul Exchange.

Of course it's ultimate, you're using forbidden and anime cards in it. [:tongue:]

As for the Qliphort match-up, that's probably because Qli's have antimeta elements to them, as well as being unhindered by various antimeta cards. For them, try Chain Burn. [:laugh:]

Oh. Well I've got my Zone's "ultimate" Deck on my side. Surprisingly, the Deck doesn't contain Xyz Monsters...
Now this is how I play:

Anti-Meta nowadays is just an umbrella term. It's like saying I want to make an aggro deck. There's no per se "Anti-Meta" deck anymore. If you noticed in my deck folder, I have no deck called Anti-Meta lol.

The problem with people who build anti-meta decks, they include too many anti-meta cards which slows their deck down. The more you try to negate, the slower your deck will be and it will clog. Hence, you have to pick what you want to negate. For example, you don't want to run skill drain, vanity's emptiness, anti-spell fragrance, AND macro cosmos. That's too much. Not only that, but a simple trap stun or decree can just kill you if you do that.

Currently, effects and special summoning are the most important, so if you focus your deck on just negating those 2 things, you should be good. As mooyan curry stated, this can be easily dun via Tribute Stun or as I like to call it - Anti-Extra. Majesty's Fiend stops effects while Vanity's Fiend/Vanity's Emptiness/Monarch Dominion field spell stops special summoning. Trains are also good because they run 3x skill drain and 3x anti-spell fragrance, killing both Qli and Nekroz. Yosenju now is considered anti-meta due to 3x vanity's emptiness, mistake, and the mind crushes.

The other thing about making an anti-meta deck is that you need to know what the meta is. [:tongue:] This is as follows:
Tier 0: Qli, Nekroz
Tier 1: Tellarknight, Shaddoll, Yosenju, Burning Abyss, Ritual Beasts, Volcanics, Atlantean, Masked Hero
The lower tiers don't matter for now. This is based on the most recent tournament standings. Each of these decks themselves also have anti-meta cards for mirror matches and also meta matches. So take that into consideration and actually look at the decklists for all these so you know what you're up against.

I think you're right. I tried to do too much in terms of trying to prevent every single thing from happening, rather than focusing on a couple of strategies and working on them.

What do you think about Safe Zone? Might be useful on Banisher of Radiance so your opponent can't destroy it by battle or card effects and your opponent's grave is gone.

Safe Zone is only temporary. Most people are running 3 mst and monster effects can also be used to destroy (diamond dire wolf)/bounce (castel)/banish (michael) face-up cards on field. You have to focus one strategy. If you're going to use banishers, then you can't use fire/ice hands or skill drain. There's nothing in your deck that can negate effects.
