Side Deck

A Side Deck (Japanese: サイドデッキ Saidodekki) is a collection of between 1 and 15 cards, separate from the Main Deck. In between Duels of a Match, players may exchange cards from their Side Deck with cards in their Main or Extra Deck[1] to better suit a strategy against an opponent's Deck.

Since a Side Deck is not compulsory, a value of 0 for a Side Deck is considered legal. Any value between 0 and 15 inclusive is permissible.
