With thousands of cards and plenty of secret packs to open, it’s easy to get swamped with items that don’t fit your finely tuned deck. Likewise, it can make finding the one card to unlock your deck’s full potential feel like a Needle Worm in a haystack.

Luckily, Master Duel comes complete with a crafting system that lets players make the exact cards they want. It seems a little confusing at first, but with this easy guide, you’ll be able to build the perfect deck in no time.

How to earn Crafting Points in Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel

Before you start producing cards quicker than Konami, you’re going to need to stock up on Crafting Points. There are four different kinds of Crafting Points in Master Duel, each corresponding to the different rarities of cards on offer. They are:

  • Normal (N)
  • Rare (R)
  • Super Rare (R)
  • Ultra Rare (UR)

It requires 30 Crafting Points to make that rarity of card, so 30 Rare Crafting Points to make a Rare monster, for example. Luckily, they’re super easy to come by once you know how.

All you have to do is dismantle an unwanted card of that rarity to earn Crafting Points. You can do this in the deck editor by simply bringing up the Card Menu (L2 or LT on consoles) and hitting “dismantle.”

Each dismantled item grants 10 CP, so you’ll have to discard three for every card you craft. It may seem like a lot for one card, but once you get into the loop of opening packs, dismantling, and crafting, it’s a pretty forgiving system.
