YuGiOh - Marik Structure Deck
A Long Awaited TCG Release: Structure Deck Marik
Way back - March 25th 2004, fact fans - there was a YuGiOh! structure deck released in Japan for the OCG celebrating Marik's deck in the anime. We waited but it never appeared in English. Now years later, when we'd long since given up hope, we've finally got an English-Language TCG Marik Structure Deck - released on October 19th 2010. On this page, you'll find everything you need to know about the deck, including a background, full spoiler list, videos, a card list for the old OCG Marik Structure Deck, featured cards, price comparisons and much more. Make sure to vote for your favourite card and give us your thoughts on the confirmed card list on our guestbook too.
The Marik Structure Deck is the first deck released since Duelist Toolbox, and the first structure deck since Machina Mayhem. Of course it contains a healthy dose of Gravekeepers and probably most significantly, TCG debuts for Mystical Beast of Serket and Temple of the Kings (although Temple of the Kings will be immediately forbidden in the advanced format game). The Marik deck remains one of the best ways to get started with the YuGiOh! Trading Card Game - if you're just starting out, we'd highly recommend it as a first deck. It is followed up by the release of the Dragunity Legion Structure Deck.

Featured Card 1 - Temple of The Kings
A TCG debut and set to go straight onto the banned list (and it's obvious why), nonetheless we guess everyone will want this for their collection. Here's the translated text:
You can activate Trap Cards on the same turn they are Set. You can send this face-up card and 1 face-up "Mystical Beast of Serket" you control to the Graveyard to Special Summon 1 Monster Card from your hand, Deck or Extra Deck.

Looking to get a copy of the Marik Structure Deck (or two, or three)? Here's your latest price comparisons from eBay. Toour mind, if you're looking to get started playing YuGiOh!, the Marik Structure Deck remains the best way to get going.
Featured Card 2 - Metal Reflect Slime
Metal Reflect Slime made its debut in Phantom Darkness as an ultra-rare, but becomes easy to get hold of with its release in the Marik structure deck:
After activation, Special Summon this card in Defense Position; it is treated as an Effect Monster Card (Aqua-Type/WATER/Level 10/ATK 0/DEF 3000). This card cannot attack. (This card is also still treated as a Trap Card.)
