Main article: Yugi Granger's Decks
Yugi uses an "Elemental" Deck, which focuses on gathering a number of different and mixed elemental monster togethers and use them as combinations. Many of his monsters have decent attacks, but can be combined with another of his monsters attacks, fusing the attacks by attacking at the same time, or summoning either a Spell or and Trap card.
