[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (2024)

The most sought after cards in Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links are often UR cards. UR is an acronym for ultra rare, which is a level of rarity that is assigned to certain Yu-Gi-Oh cards. Ultra rare is the highest level of rarity that is included in the Duel Links game but it’s not the highest level of rarity in the entire game of Yu-Gi-Oh.

There are other rarities such as secret rare, and ghost rare, but for today’s purposes we’ll just be looking at the best Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links UR cards. Other than being the most rare cards in the Duel Links game, people desire them because oftentimes your most important cards in your deck are going to be UR cards.

Many of your extra deck synchro, xyz, and fusion monster cards are ultra rare, and these guys are some of your most powerful assets. Looking at other UR cards like Mirror Force, Mystical Space Typhoon, and Book of Moon, we can see that the best cards in the game are UR cards. You’ll want to collect as many of them as you can to become an expert duelist in Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links.

20. Effect Veiler

[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (1)

You can find the Effect Veiler UR card in the arsenal of many different duelists’ decks. This card is extremely versatile in the sense that it can be useful as a support in multiple situations. It allows you to send it to the graveyard and then negate the effects of one of your opponent’s face-up monsters.

If you know anything about the current Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links meta then you should know how big of a role effects play in winning matches. You can slap an Effect Veiler on the field during your opponent’s turn and thwart whatever plans they were cooking up with their monster effect. This is so effective because when you stop someone’s combo they oftentimes have nothing else to do except end their turn.

19. Book of Moon

[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (2)

The Book of Moon is a simple yet highly effective UR card in the Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links verse. Might I add that the artwork on this card is quite beautiful as well? The only thing that the Book of Moon does is change one of your opponent’s monsters from face-up attack position to face-down defense position.

The Book of Moon spell card is a perfect disrupting card for when your opponent is attempting to pull some shenanigans with one of their monster cards. With this UR card you can stop your opponent in their tracks as they’re about to attack you with their monster or use its effect. This might leave them with nothing else they can do and then you’re free to end the game on your turn.

18. D.D. Crow

[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (3)

D.D. Crow is a UR card that is similar to Effect Veiler in the sense that it is discarded from your hand and activated during your opponent’s turn. It has a very low attack and defense but that’s not what this electrifying bird is all about. He allows you to search through your opponent’s graveyard and banish something from it for the rest of the game.

It is very helpful to banish certain cards from the graveyard because many deck engines are centered around usage of the graveyard. By removing one of those monster’s whose effect is activated in the graveyard you will frustrate and disadvantage your enemy.

17. Mirror Force

[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (4)

Mirror Force is that card you see your opponent reveal and then your heart just drops. If you’ve ever played Yu-Gi-Oh before, you likely associate Mirror Force with total destruction of monster cards. That’s pretty much what it does, it annihilates all of your opponent’s face-up attack position monsters as soon as they attempt an attack on you.

It is very worth your while to find yourself a Mirror Force to use for the right occasions. Just think about it, how many times do you remember someone mercilessly attacking your precious life points directly? If only you had a hidden Mirror Force trap card tucked away on your side of the board; you would turn the tides of the game in an instant.

16. Ice Dragon’s Prison

[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (5)

Not too long ago I found myself relentlessly departing with all of my hard-earned gems to pull Ice Dragon’s Prison. Many people are willing to pay a hefty price to get their hands on this card and I was no exception. With this useful trap card, you can yoink one of your opponent’s monsters out of their own graveyard and firmly place it on your side of the board. After that you can banish a monster from both sides of the board that have the same Type.

Ice Dragon Prison is one of the best interrupting cards in the Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links game. Even better if you can fit more than one of them into your deck. The card disrupts your opponent and by removing the right card from your opponent’s graveyard, you can sever their combo chain and help yourself to a tasty victory.

15. Knightmare Unicorn

[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (6)

You can only dream of getting your hands on a Nightmare Unicorn to add it to your extra deck. This single-horned beast has saved me many times with his effect. You can use Knightmare Unicorn to shuffle one of your opponent’s cards back into their deck and allow yourself to draw a card from your deck. These two things alone are quite useful little tricks.

It’s a simple thing to link summon the Knightmare Unicorn as you only need two monsters with different names. It also boasts a relatively high attack power and the utility that it provides with its monster effect makes this one of the most valued UR cards in Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links.

14. Crackdown

[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (7)

Crackdown is one of those backline trap cards that is a must have for a variety of different Duel Links decks. It allows you to take control of one of your opponent’s face-up monsters. You’re not able to use the monster to attack or use its effect, but this card is good for removing a vital piece of a puzzle from your opponent’s deck.

Crackdown is so good because you can use it to steal a monster before the enemy can use its effect to do some crazy combo. Your opponent summons one monster and before you know it you’re staring at three fusion monsters with 4,000 attack power each. Crackdown allows you to stop bad things from happening before they happen and is a very good defensive UR card.

13. One for One

[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (8)

One for One has been an amazing card for years in the Yu-Gi-Oh card game and it is no exception in Duel Links. As always, you can legally run only one of them in your deck, but sometimes it is very much worth it to do so. You can use this spell card to send one card from your hand to your graveyard in order to special summon a level one monster from your deck.

Anyone who knows a bit about Yu-Gi-Oh can deduce that this is a very useful card. I remember the days of using One for One in my Morphtronics deck to search the annoying yet wonderful Morphtronic Celfon. There are many level one monsters out there that are ingredients for important aspects of different deck engines that One for One is perfect for.

12. Yoko, The Graceful Mayakashi

[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (9)

Every time I write about this card I’m always spewing my undying love for it. I’ll do the same thing once again because just look at this card! Yoko, The Graceful Mayakashi is highly beautiful and, well, graceful! As for what this UR card does, besides having a very high attacking power of 2,900, is quite neat too.

He has a condition that allows him to be special summoned, and when he is special summoned from the graveyard, you can destroy one of your opponent’s monsters.

Yoko, The Graceful Mayakashi is a trump card of the Mayakashi Duel Links deck and is highly sought after for his superior ability in a fight and unmatched elegance.

11. Mystical Space Typhoon

[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (10)

Mystical Space Typhoon is that Yu-Gi-Oh staple of all staples. What it does is so simple that even a small baby could understand it; it destroys a spell or trap card. That’s it, and getting rid of a pesky spell or trap card is all you need to do sometimes in Yu-Gi-Oh.

It becomes especially useful if your opponent has a continuous spell or trap card that never goes away. With MST you can make it go away and proceed to vanquish your enemy to the shadow realm with no effort.

10. Neo Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon

[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (11)

Other than having a very cool name and a long-winded effect, Neo Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon is one of the most powerful UR cards in the Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links game. You must have three Blue-Eyes White Dragons to summon it, but when you do summon it, your opponent will rethink all of their life choices.

You can send a Blue-Eyes fusion monster from your extra deck to the graveyard, and then this guy can attack another time. You can use this effect twice! You can theoretically attack four times in one turn with this card’s effect.

Neo Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon even puts in work from your graveyard. If this card is in your graveyard when your opponent targets a Blue-Eyes monster you control, you can banish this card from your graveyard and negate the effect of your opponent’s card and destroy it.

9. Forbidden Droplet

[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (12)

Forbidden Droplet is another UR card that I just threw a few thousand gems at because of how good it is. You can send any amount of cards from your hand and/or field to the graveyard and choose that many effect monsters your opponent controls, and halve their attack until the end of this turn. If that’s not enough, their effects are rendered useless as well!

At the same time this happens, your opponent becomes unable to activate cards, or the effects of cards, with the same original type as the cards sent to the graveyard to activate this card. So if you were to discard two trap cards and one monster card, your opponent would be unable to play any trap or monster cards at all this turn.

8. Number 39: Utopia

[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (13)

Number 39: Utopia has always been a staple card in many Yu-Gi-Oh decks for his reliable attack power and straightforward monster effect. He’s simple to summon, and has the ability to negate up to two of your opponent’s attacks before his effect becomes useless.

This effect is really great in a pinch if you need to stall for at least two monster attacks to gather your forces and launch a counterattack. Sometimes you only need to stop your opponent for a short while to draw the important cards you need to cinch a win.

7. The Dark Magicians

[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (14)

If you’re like me, you’re waiting for the day when Dark Magician becomes the number one deck in Duel Links. Even if it might not happen any time soon, we can still play it and be competitive with it. The Dark Magicians is probably the best card in a Dark Magician deck and it is a doozy of a card.

These beautiful magicians boast a three-hundred point higher attack power than a regular old Dark Magician. If a spell or trap card is played during any turn, you can activate The Dark Magicians’ effect to draw one card, and if you draw a spell or trap card you can set it or activate it depending on the type of card that it is.

That’s not all, once this card is inevitably destroyed by your opponent’s broken Tachyon deck then you can special summon one Dark Magician and one Dark Magician Girl from your deck, hand, or graveyard. I’m not sure about you, but any time I can get a Dark Magician Girl on my side of the field I’ll be doing that.

6. Dragon Master Knight

[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (15)

We’ve all seen this card at the bottom of our giant tub of random Yu-Gi-Oh cards that we’ve collected over the years. It’s usually bent in five different places and looks to be in horrible shape but we always like to look at it because of its extremely high attack power.

An OTK in Yu-Gi-Oh lingo means to one-turn-kill someone. You get to your very first turn in the duel and sink your opponent in that one turn. The Dragon Master Knight has the ability to do just that if the right conditions are met and you can summon him. You need a Black Luster Soldier and Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon and he must be fusion summoned with these two cards.

The Dragon Master Knight gains 500 attack points for each dragon-type monster you control, except this card. You could get his attack up to a mind-numbing 6,000 points. Just think about how that would make your enemies feel!

5. Monster Reborn

[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (16)

The Monster Reborn is another staple and one of the most iconic, and useful cards in the Yu-Gi-Oh franchise. It also happens to be a UR card in Duel Links and it has the power to bring back one monster from the dead. When you use this spell card you can target a monster that is either in your own graveyard or your opponents’, and special summon it.

A lot of the time you can use it to summon the monster with the highest attack power to your board and attack your opponent’s life points directly to win the game. You can also use it for tactics where you send your own monster to the graveyard only to summon it with Monster Reborn.

4. Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon

[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (17)

The Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon might have the coolest name on this list and it also has one of the most unforgiving monster effects. When this card battles an opponent’s monster, you can target that monster that it’s battling and banish both that monster and this card. At the end of the battle phase, return any monsters banished by this effect to the field, and if the other monster was an Xyz monster, this card gains 500 attack points for each xyz material it had when it was banished.

A very wordy effect and all of it is to say that the Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon is a greedy behemoth of a card that is never satisfied with its current attack power and is always striving for more.

3. Yubel

[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (18)

Taking a look at Yubel’s effect, you’ll notice that it starts off by stating something that I very much like to see. This card cannot be destroyed by battle. It’s always a nice feeling to know that your monster card literally cannot be destroyed by being attacked so it must be dealt with using some other method such as a spell card or monster effect.

You also do not take any battle damage from battles involving Yubel. In fact, when one dares to attack your Yubel, they are the ones who are punished for it and take damage that is equal to the attacking monster’s attack. During your end phase, tribute one other monster to destroy this card. When it is destroyed, except by its own effect, its owner can special summon one Yubel - Terror Incarnate from their hand. Quite a terrifying card, this Yubel.

2. Forbidden Lance

[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (19)

Don’t underestimate Forbidden Lance, it may look serene and peaceful by name and appearance, but it is a devastating blow to your opponents when used correctly. There is a reason that this card is UR and difficult to obtain. When the spell card is played, you can target one face-up monster on the field and have it lose 800 attack points until the end of this turn.

Forbidden Lance is a quick-play spell which allows you to use it while your opponent is doing things to you; usually bad things. As a monster is attacking you, you can use this card to nerf its attack power and hopefully destroy it and turn the duel around.

1. Cosmic Cyclone

[Top 20] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links Best UR Cards (20)

Considered to be one of the best cards in the Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links game, Cosmic Cyclone is a UR card that is effective and straightforward. You make the decision to give up 1000 of your life points, then target a spell or trap card on the field and banish it.

What makes Cosmic Cyclone so good is the part where you get to banish the spell or trap card. If you were to send it to the graveyard, many decks allow for you to bring your cards back out of your graveyard, but when something is banished it’s gone for good. This way, you can remove extremely important cards from the game and gain a huge advantage,
