The latest event for Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel is all about the power of Synchro Summons. The Synchro Festival starts today, April 12, 2022, and will continue for a few weeks with a wealth of rewards for players in tow.

There’s also a specific banlist and rewards for players who put in the work to harness the power of Synchro against other duelists. Here is what is known about the event.


Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel’s Synchro Festival details

Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel’s Synchro Festival has begun and will run from April 12 to 22, 2022. The rewards for the event can be picked up until April 24, 2022.

Players are limited to only Synchro Summons in their Extra Deck for this event. This means that no Fusion Monsters, XYZ Monsters, or Link Monsters can be used. Three loaner decks can also be added to the mix. Win, lose or draw, players stand to earn medals, but the way they're handed out has changed from previous events.


The number of medals handed out to players will not change whether they use a Loaner or Custom Deck. This means that fans who don’t have the cards to play can just use a loaner deck to get the same rewards as everyone else.

Loaner decks for Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel

  • Shining Crystal Wings (Clear Wing Synchro Dragon)
  • Revolution Calls Thy Name (Baronne de Fleur)
  • Miracles of Convergence (Stardust Dragon)

To participate in this event, players just need to click on the “Synchro Festival” icon, select their deck, and dive into the duels against other players. The total rewards will include 1900 Gems, 20 Synchro Reward Tickets, and an Accessory called “Flower Gathering.”
