5 Uses
Enhancer (New)
~20,000 CD
Items (also known as cards) can be bought or earned and are stored in your bag. All items have a description, category, condition, and cost associated with them.
Description
  • This explains how the item can be used.
Category
  • Categories group various items of the same type together. Each item has a category. Items that can be used in the Stadium either have a Deck or Enhancer category.
Condition
  • As an item ages, its condition will progessively get worse. If it has an Unusable condition, it can no longer be used and its cost will be lower. Fortunately, you can repair any item back to having a New condition by going to a Repair Shop but the longer you wait, the more it will cost to repair it.
Cost
  • This is an estimate of what the item might be worth.
Additional Information
Some items may also have a total number of uses, relic requirement, or theme associated with them.
Uses
  • Some items have a limited number of uses. Once an item has no more uses, it'll be removed from your bag. Most limited-use items can have their uses recharged at the Repair Shop. Certain items such as Deck Cards have unlimited uses and they can be used indefinitely without worry of losing them.
Relic Requirement
  • Some Deck Cards and Enhancers will have a Relic requirement (in this example, the Shadow Relic: ). Until you earn the specified Relic, the item will not behave as expected at the Stadium.
Theme
  • Items with a Deck category, also known as Deck Cards, can have different themes. When given a new theme, it will change the appearance of that Deck Card. If all the Deck Cards in your Deck have the same theme, you'll get an additional Theme Bonus at the Stadium.
Make sure to read up on how an item can be used before you buy it.

Bag

Your bag holds all of your items. As your bag can only hold a maximum number of items (which can be upgraded), if your bag is full, you must either sell your items, use them, or put them in your Storage to be able to get new items. Any items in your Storage can't be used at the Stadium or anywhere else until they are added back to your bag.
Your Deck
  • Your bag is responsible for setting your Deck. Your Deck can only consist of cards with a Deck category and must hold exactly 5 Deck Cards to compete at the Stadium. As well, none of the items in your Deck can have an Unusable condition.
A blue Deck Card with a value of 85 at the Stadium.

Power Moves
  • Your bag is also responsible for choosing which Power Moves you'll take into a Stadium match. You are only allowed to have at most 8 Power Moves (can be upgraded) in a Stadium match so you should choose wisely.

If you are looking to clear up your bag, you can always put an item up for auction, trade it, or donate it.

Currency

Collector Dollars (also known as CD) is the form of currency in DeoDeck. All items can be bought using CD. You can earn CD by selling items, visiting certain locations (Fair, The Young Wizard, etc.), or even auctioning items for profit. Although you can only use your CD on hand to make purchases, you can also store your CD in the Bank.
Bank
  • The Bank lets you safely store CD and gain interest on it. It's recommended to leave most of your CD in the Bank and only keep on hand what you need. Any CD in the Bank is safely protected while your CD on hand can be stolen. As well, all CD on hand is publicly visible on your profile while CD you store in the Bank is hidden (unless you qualify for the Wealth Rankings).

Stadium

The Stadium is where you can challenge others (either CPUs or real users) with your Deck, Enhancers, and Power Moves. A Stadium match can be broken up into two parts: choosing moves and and the duel.
1. Choosing Moves
Before you can challenge someone at the Stadium, you need to set up your Deck. It can be chosen and rearranged in your bag. Once you have 5 Deck Cards in your Deck, you can start a Stadium match.
  • Rounds
    • A Stadium match is made up of a best of 5 rounds. That means whenever you or your opponent has won the necessary rounds, the match ends. Before each round, you can choose the next Deck Card you'll play from your Deck but each Deck Card can be played only once in a match. As well, you can optionally choose an Enhancer from your bag and a Power Move to accompany your Deck Card. You cannot change your Deck during a Stadium match so make sure you've chosen the Deck Cards you want before you start a match.
    Deck Cards
    • You can play one Deck Card per round at the Stadium. A higher Deck Card leads to a higher Round Power with 100 being the highest possible value for a Deck Card. Deck Cards are also colored either red, orange, yellow, green, blue, or purple where red Deck Cards are the least powerful and purple are the most powerful.
    Enhancers
    • These are special items that add a boost to your Deck Card. Some Enhancers have limited uses (and need to be recharged or you'll lose them) while others may be unlimited. The better the Enhancer, the more your Deck Card will be improved. Although using them is optional, they are highly recommended.
    Power Moves
    • You can optionally choose to a use Power Move once per round at the Stadium. Once you use a Power Move, that specific one won't be available again for the rest of the match. A Power Move can either affect you, your opponent, or both of you so it's important to play them wisely. You cannot buy new Power Moves with CD but you can unlock new ones. As well, you can only take 8 Power Moves (can be upgraded) with you in a Stadium match but you can choose which ones you want to take from your bag. It may also be worth learning about Power Move order in a Stadium match.
    Stadium Bonuses
    • You can gain temporary bonuses or curses at the Stadium by eating a Candy Card, having all the same colored Deck Cards, or even visiting certain locations. These will temporarily change your Round Power in a Stadium match. Some of these bonuses like Candy Card bonuses will only have an effect during CPU matches.
2. Duel
  • Once you've chosen your Deck Card, Enhancer, and Power Move, you enter the duel phase of the round. A Stadium match ends when someone wins a best of 5 rounds. If you have a higher Round Power than your opponent, you win the round. Your Round Power is determined by the strength of the played Deck Cards, Enhancers, Power Moves, and additional bonuses for that round. In the event of a tie against another user, the round will be a draw. If after 5 rounds, the match is tied, there will be a Sudden Death round.
    Sudden Death
    • In Sudden Death, the first to win a round will win the match. Unlike a normal round, you can use already played Deck Cards in your Deck and most Power Moves will be available again.

Stadium Match Types
There are different types of Stadium matches that you can play:
  • CPU Challengers: These are challenges against CPUs. As you defeat more CPUs and increase your level, the rewards will become greater but the opponents will become tougher.
    • Checkpoint CPUs: Every 5 levels, you'll encounter a Checkpoint CPU when playing against regular CPU Challengers. You'll need to complete certain tasks to be able to challenge them to a match but you'll earn a Relic, a new Power Move, and bonus CD if you win.
    • Relics: There are 7 Relics to be earned. You'll get one each time you win against a Checkpoint CPU at the Stadium. If you earn them all, you'll be able to enter the Ancient Plateau. As well, certain Deck Cards and Enhancers have Relic requirements. If you use an item without having earned its necessary Relic, it will cause unwanted effects at the Stadium.
    You can also sometimes encounter random Stadium Challenges.
    • Stadium Challenges: These matches will have a limited duration to accept the challenge. Once accepted, there will be special conditions imposed on the match compared to normal matches and you will not have a chance to rematch if you lose.
  • User Challengers: These matches are against real users. Whether you win or lose one of these matches will affect your Global Ranking which appears on your profile and determines the level of competition you will face against users in future matches. Unlike CPU Challengers, user matches require you to put down a chosen amount of CD and you'll either double-or-nothing your CD based on whether you win or lose the match.
    • Elite Zone: If you have a good enough Global Ranking, you'll qualify for the Elite Zone and be matched with the strongest DeoDeck users at the Stadium.
    • Friendly Match: You can also challenge a user to a Stadium match from their profile. As this allows you to choose who you are challenging, winning or losing one of these matches will not earn you any CD or affect your Global Ranking.
    • Tourney: You can create or join a tourney. Tourneys have certain conditions such best of 1, 3, or 5 matches and may require CD entry costs. Tourneys do not affect your Global Ranking.

FAQ

Here are some frequently asked questions and their answers. This list is constantly being updated as new questions are being asked. You can submit a question by contacting us!
How many Deck Cards are there and what do the colors mean?
There are currently 100 Deck Cards (1-100). Colors are used to indicate the power of a Deck Card with red being the least powerful Deck Cards (1-17), then orange (18-34), yellow (35-51), green (52-68), blue (69-85), and finally purple being the most powerful (86-100). If all the cards in your Deck are the same color, you'll gain an additional Color Bonus at the Stadium.
What's the difference between an unlimited-use and limited-use Enhancer?
Limited-use Enhancers typically only have 5 uses. This means that once you've played that Enhancer 5 times at the Stadium, it will disappear from your bag. Fortunately, you can recharge any limited-use Enhancer at the Repair Shop so that it gets back all its uses. Unlimited-use Enhancers can be used indefinitely at the Stadium without needing to recharge them.
What happened to my Deck Card at the Stadium once I played it? I thought it was unlimited?
Deck Cards have unlimited uses but you can only play each card from your Deck once per Stadium match. Don't worry, it won't disappear from your bag and you can play it again during your next Stadium match.
How do I set my Deck?
You can set your Deck by visiting your bag. To enter the Stadium, your Deck must have 5 Deck Cards (a Deck Card is any item with a Deck category).
What are limited time locations?
Limited time locations sometimes show up when you're visiting the Plaza. They are special locations that are only around for a small amount of time so you should visit them before they disappear. If you happen to miss one, all limited time locations eventually come back.
Who exactly is the Courier?
The Courier will sometimes send you messages with promo codes. These codes may include free CD, items, or special perks. The Courier may also send you messages about special events or if you unlock something new!
What's the point of my Global Ranking?
Whenever you play matches against others at the Stadium, your Global Ranking may change. A lower Global Ranking means a stronger user. It is used as a way to know the strength of another user, to see how you rank against others, and to determine if you qualify for the Elite Zone. The Elite Zone is reserved for the top 25% of all users and offers you stronger matches at the Stadium.
What are accomplishments and how are they used?
You can earn accomplishments by completing tasks or exploring DeoDeck. Whenever you earn a new accomplishment, it will appear on your profile. Anyone can see the accomplishments you've earned and you can see anyone else's accomplishments on their profile. Accomplishments are assigned colors based on their difficulty with yellow being the easiest to earn and purple being the most difficult. You also earn points each time you earn an accomplishment and they can be spent at the Rewards Store to get special perks.
In what order is my Round Power calculated at the Stadium?
Your Round Power is calculated by taking your Deck Card's value then adding your Enhancer's value. Power Moves are then applied and finally all remaining bonuses (Color Bonus, Poison Curse, etc.) are all added at once.
Which Power Moves happen first in a Stadium match?
In most cases, the order the Power Moves are executed has no effect on the outcome of match. Power Stop is always used first and then Mirror Mirror followed by Deck Swap, Enhancer Swap, and then Power Moves that modify Enhancers or Deck Cards. The last Power Moves executed are always Self-Destruct and Power Moves that affect final Round Power (Lady Luck, etc.). While most of the time, the order should not matter, there are some circumstances in which considering this order might be important.
Do Power Moves stack at the Stadium?
Yes, Power Moves will stack on top of each other. For example, if you and your opponent both play a Doubled Enhancers Power Move, this will now 4x both yours and your opponent's played Enhancer. Similarly, if you both play an Enhancer Swap Power Move, they will cancel each other out.
I rank in the top 25% of users at the Stadium so why don't I qualify for the Elite Zone?
To qualify for the Elite Zone, you need to rank in the top 25% of users at the Stadium and have played at least 5 matches against other users.
What's the difference between an Art Card and a Custom Card? What's the point of either?
Art Cards are official cards released by DeoDeck that can be displayed in your Showroom once you unlock it. Some of these Art Cards can be tough to earn and sell for a lot of CD. They serve no purpose aside from being collectibles you can show off. Custom Cards are Art Cards made by users at the Art Factory. They are not official but can also be sold and displayed in your Showroom like Art Cards.
How long does it take for an item's condition to worsen?
An item will lose its New condition after 30 days, its Good condition after 60 days, and its Poor condition after 120 days. Once it has an Unusable condition, it can't be used until it's repaired.
What are Sponsor Coins?
You can buy Sponsor Coins at the Sponsor Society and help support DeoDeck's monthly costs. Sponsor Coins allow you to get exclusive perks including new themes and locations. Payment transactions are secure and powered by Stripe and can also be payed with using PayPal. If you have any questions about purchasing Sponsor Coins, you can contact us!
