Top 10 Best Yugioh Link Monsters

Many Yugioh players went crazy when link monsters were released, the game had changed completely and these new monsters were deemed unnecessary. Now though, Yugioh is still going strong and link monsters are accepted by the community.

Such a new card type was expected to slow the game down a bit, giving players more options when it comes to deck building and allowing duels to last more than a few turns. It didn’t turn out this way though, Link monsters only made it easier to get your combos off!

Not many link monsters have been released, particularly outside of asia, but there’s still enough to make a list such as this one.

Disclaimer: Archetypes have been avoided. Lets be honest, you already know the best archetypes. This list will focus on lesser known and/or ‘independent’ cards. 

 


10. Topologic Bomber Dragon

Topologic Bomber Dragon, one of the best Link monsters in Yugioh

This monster can be awesome, it’s the lack of reliability that puts it in 10th place. The effect to destroy all monsters in main monster zones can be a huge advantage, or it can be detrimental to your efforts. It depends on the situation really, if you manage to get full usage out of the effect then it can be a game-winner on its own.

9. Link Spider

Link Spider, one of the best Link monsters in Yugioh

The most simple link monster released yet, Link Spider is a good starter for any deck looking to find its trade in the new Yugioh version. It’ll grant you more options when its on the field, giving you the ability to summon a normal monster from your hand, then you can use both that monster and Link Spider to summon another, better link monster. That’s pretty much the main usage, its a sacrifice for better things!

8. Tri-Gate Wizard

Tri-Gate Wizard, one of the best Link monsters in Yugioh

Tri-Gate Wizard is the perfect monster to summon if you already have a Link monster in the extra monster zone. If you set up your field correctly, it can be devastating when co-linked with 3 monsters. While this sounds a bit situational, it’s actually not too difficult to achieve and there are very few Link monsters who thrive as much as Tri-Gate Wizard in these situations.

7. Saryuja Skull Dread

Saryuja Skull Dread, one of the best Link monsters in Yugioh

Full credit to Konami for this card, it has to have some of the most awesome art in the entire game. Wonder why it’s not a Dark attribute though? Regardless, Saryuja Skull Dread fits snugly into any extra deck that requires it. With those 3 link arrows at the bottom, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get even more extra monsters out if needed. Requiring 4 monsters to get the most out of its effect is a slightly detrimental trait, though.

6. Proxy Dragon

Proxy Dragon, one of the best Link monsters in Yugioh

Proxy Dragon is one of those cards you can always do with having one or two in your extra deck. It’s simple to summon, requiring any two monsters, and provides you with two extra zones to summon more cards from your extra deck. That alone makes Proxy Dragon useful, its effect is situational and requires the right combos but it can also be useful.

5. Gaia Saber, the Lightning Shadow

Gaia Saber the Lightning Shadow, one of the best Link monsters in Yugioh

When synchro monsters were first released, a card by the name of Gaia Knight the Force of Earth was released. It looks like Konami is continuing this trend of high ATK Gaia monsters with no effect. While they’re never the first choice, having the option of a high ATK beater is underrated, sometimes a 2600 ATK monster is more valuable than a 2300 ATK monster with a decent effect.

4. Borreload Dragon

Borreload Dragon, one of the best Link monsters in Yugioh

Another epic looking card, you have to appreciate the awesomeness of these Link monsters. Borreload Dragon lives up to its expectations given by its art with some amazing effects. All kinds of monsters have all kinds of effects nowadays, having an immunity to such effects is huge. At least 3 effect monsters are required to Link summon this monster which is understandable, it’d be absolutely broken if it were easier to summon!

3. Decode Talker

Decode Talker, one of the best Link monsters in Yugioh

Awesome name & awesome art make an awesome card!

Supplying some handy links to main monster zones when its in the extra monster zone, it’s easy to summon and will extend your ability to summon monsters from the extra deck. Not only this, it can gain a size-able ATK stat from its first effect, making it a truly powerful choice in any extra deck.

2. Binary Sorceress

Binary Sorceress, one of the best Link monsters in Yugioh

It gains benefits depending on the amount of monsters with a mutual link to it. With 1 or more mutual link, Binary Sorceress increases your life points whenever a linked monster destroys another monster by battle, the life points gained is equal to any battle damage your monster inflicted. The other effect allows you to half a monster’s (you control) ATK stat and give the amount to another monster.

All this for a link card that requires any two monsters to summon, although it does require mutual links. But still, such an amazing card!

Not as good as..

 


1. Firewall Dragon

Firewall Dragon, the best link monster in the entire Yugioh game

Firewall Dragon is such an amazing card, especially for how easy it is to summon. Any 4 monsters is required to get this cyberse monster on the field, there it’ll donate generously to your victory. The first effect is fair decent, allowing you to return any monsters (both yours & yours opponents) to the hand from the field or graveyard. Then you get the second effect and what an effect it is.

Your monster got destroyed? No worries, here’s another. It’s for this reason Firewall Dragon is by far the best link monster in Yugioh!
