How to get new cards and decks?

Considering Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel is a free game, players need to use the gems available in the game to get new cards and other items.

The easiest way to get these gems is buying them with real money. But hold on, the game gives you the possibility of acquiring them for free, in case you don't want to spend money on the game.

Completing the solo mode is fundamental for a player to get many gems. Besides that, in the solo mode you can get the basis of some decks by completing the "gate" of its lore.

After finishing the solo mode, you will have enough gems to get a good deck and you will be ready to face real opponents in ranked matches, which are for sure the game's high selling point. Every time you win duels in this mode you will get gems, so, even after fulfilling all previous steps, you will be able to hoard a good amount of gems daily.

Are there any other ways to play Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel?

Besides the modes available in game, you also have the option of taking part on the many varied types of tourneys, be them more casual between your friends, in social media or even with a super event production company that will broadcast your duels in streams.
