Structure Deck

A Structure Deck (Japanese: ストラクチャーデッキ Sutorakuchā Dekki) is a retailed, pre-made Deck based on a certain Type, Attribute, strategy, or Yu-Gi-Oh! character, designed to be playable straight from the box. As opposed to Starter Decks, which are intended to teach players the game, a Structure Deck is intended for more experienced players to use to create more advanced Decks, either by customizing the Deck with cards from Booster Packs or by purchasing multiple copies of the Structure Deck and combining the best cards together.

The first Structure Decks included at least one single new card, printed as an Ultra Rare; after Structure Deck: Curse of Darkness, they always introduce 5 new cards, 1 or 2 of them being Ultra Rare, 2 of them Super Rares, and the remaining 2 as Commons (usually Spells or Traps).

As opposed to Starter Decks (with the exception of Duelist Toolbox, V for Victory, Space-Time Showdown, and Yuya), Structure Decks may include multiple copies of the same card. The mat included also features the cover monster in the background somewhat blocking the visibility of the card zones.
