Get the "Mirror Force" card from Chapter 19 and the "White Hole" card from Chapter 23. This will give you a wider range of cards for the Duel Star Challenges.

- Suggested Cards and Decks -

Deck x2, Deck x3 and Heal
     - Almost normal, just use your preferred decks. For more deck options, go to the deck
building section here: Cards and Deck Building Guides

2 Card Hand, Hurt, Cripple All, Boost All and Life Points
     - You can still use your preferred decks, just make sure that your monsters can build up their
Powers faster than your enemies. For more deck options, go to the deck building section
here: Cards and Deck Building Guides
     - For Life Points rule, I recommend the Empathy Deck or any healing deck.

Fragile and Self-Destruct
     - Modify your preferred deck and add White Hole or Waboku (if you can take the backfire)
spell cards. Build up your monster's Power to deal great damages.
     - The Empathy Deck is also a great deck that can handle Waboku's Backfire effect.
     - Shared Fate and Requiem Decks are also possible.

1 Card Hand
     - Check your card pool and choose all monster cards with high Power and Life Points. Aim
for at least 10,000 to 12,000 Life Points. Preferably with helpful effects and can battle or survive alone.
     - Add spell cards like Mirror Force, Just Desserts, or any spell cards that you want.
     - I recommend to finish this last until you get those powerful cards (get 500 Duel Stars first).
     - You only have 1 shot per Round, so make it count!
     - For more in-depth 1 Card Hand guide, go here: 1-Card Hand Decks for Free Users

Monsters Only
     - Remove all Spell cards from your deck then check your card pool for more monster cards
with at least 1200 Power (preferably with good effects).
     - Use Decks that can boost Power fast. Dragon decks, Empathy decks, Dark decks with
"Temple of Skulls" cards, Drain Decks and more!
     - At Chapter 23 (Monsters Only Node - Dragon Deck). You might want to switch to an all
monster Sneak and Shared Fate deck. Use example or similar cards like the one below.
     - At Chapter 24 (Monsters Only Node - All Boss Nodes). You might want to switch to an all
monster Requiem and Shared Fate deck for this. Use example or similar cards like the one below.
     - If your opponent's monster have less than 500 Power because of your Requiem, do not
place any monster card below them. Concentrate on the other two nodes instead. This will greatly conserve your monsters and will give you more cards to use in the end.
Spells Only
     - For more info, refer here: Spells Only Deck Building Guide

NOTE: Use Side Deck Cards!
     - If your opponent's deck is using a common Monster Type or Attribute, Check the Shop
for "Annihilate" spell cards that can destroy that Monster Type or Attribute.
     - Example: "Exile of the Wicked" spell card annihilates or destroys all Fiends! (Chapter 24).

- Beating Specific Type Decks -

(Type of Deck) Only
     - Except Monsters Only and Spells Only.
     - Cards are still very limited and some of the useful ones can only be obtained by spending
Duel Points. So, how are we going to beat all the Specified Type Decks around?

       The answer is simple, we will just create a single deck using Coins, Card Points and Free
Cards from rewards that can beat all specified type decks! Curious? Check the link below to learn more!
