The Genshin Impact TCG best decks

Looking for the best deck in Genshin Impact TCG Genius Invokation? Well, you’ve come to the right place! Here’s how to build the Genshin Impact TCG best decks

Genshin Impact TCG Deck: Multiple characters can be seen

Now that the Genshin Impact TCG Genius Invokation has been out for some time, players are looking for the Genshin Impact TCG best decks to run in Genius Invokation. There are several decks competing for the title of the best Genshin Impact deck, so here are three of the most powerful and popular TCG decks available right now that are sure to give you an edge in battle.

If you’re looking to build out your collection of cards, the best place to start is with all Genshin Impact TCG character cards. Acquiring these will help when building the Genshin Impact TCG best decks since they often require locked characters. Speaking of building out your collection, there’s also a selection of new Genshin Impact 3.3 banners to pick from to get powerful new characters.

Genshin Impact TCG best decks

The Genshin Impact TCG best decks are an OTK Melt Deck, a Freeze Deck, and an Electro-Charged Deck.

Genshin Impact TCG Melt Deck

  • Character Cards: Ayaka, Yoimiya, Fatui Pyro Agent/Bennett
  • Equipment Cards: Gamber’s Earrings x2
  • Support Cards: Paimon x2, Liben x2, Liu Su, Iron Tongue Tian, Parametric Transformer x2, NRE x2
  • Event Cards: Strategise x2, Changing Shifts x2, I Haven’t Lost Yet x2, Leave it to Me! x2, Starsigns x2, Send Off, Elemental Resonance: Woven Flames x2, Minty Meat Rolls x2, Northern Smoked Chicken x2

The TCG Melt Deck is one of the best Genshin Impact decks, making use of Elemental Infusions and Normal Attacks to deal massive damage. The Gambler’s Earrings are key to this as it will generate a further two Omni Element dice after an opposing character is defeated, giving you a free attack. Furthermore, making good use of NRE and food buffs will take this TCG deck to the next level.

To use the TCG Melt Deck, aim to get Yoimiya’s Elemental Burst, Ryuukin Saxifrage, to deal an additional Pyro Damage after any skill for two rounds, including Normal Attacks. Once this is active, you’ll want to trigger as many Melt reactions as possible using Ayaka’s Normal Attacks, since her passive skill gives her Cryo Elemental Infusion. Using NRE and Minty Meat Rolls will allow you to use several Normal Attacks in a single round.

While reliant on combos and weak to disruptive teams, such as those focusing on Freeze, this Genshin Impact best deck has very high single target damage without relying on Elemental Bursts (besides Yoimiya).

Genshin Impact TCG Freeze Deck

  • Character Cards: Ayaka, Chongyun, Xingqiu/Mona
  • Equipment Cards: Sacrificial Sword, Gambler’s Earrings
  • Support Cards: Paimon x2, Liben x2, Katherine, Jade Chamber, Liyue Harbour Wharf, Parametric Transformer, NRE
  • Event Cards: Strategise x2, Changing Shifts x2, The Bestest Travel Companion! x2, Leave it to Me!, When the Crane Returned x2, Send Off, Elemental Resonance: Woven Ice x2, Elemental Resonance: Shattering Ice x2, Minty Meat Rolls x2, Mondstadt Hash Brown

The TCG Freeze Deck is one of the best Genshin Impact decks, and one of the most annoying to play against since the Frozen reaction will render the Frozen character card unusable. With a TCG Freeze Deck you have significant control over your opponent and disrupt their strategy.

Much like the TCG Melt Deck, this deck makes great use of NRE and Minty Meat Rolls to spam Normal Attacks as Ayaka. Your goal will be to activate Xingqiu’s Elemental Burst to apply Hydro consistently and deal significant damage. Alternatively, you can use Mona’s Elemental Skill to apply Hydro. Nevertheless, the next step is to Freeze your opponent using Ayaka’s Cryo Infused Normal Attacks thanks to her powerful passive skill. Chongyun is a great third character to have as he can also infuse your active character with Cryo, granting another powerful Cryo applicator if Ayaka is out of play.

Like the TCG Melt deck, the TCG Freeze deck is reliant on combos which take time to set up. Likewise, it Xingqui is defeated then you’ll be unable to freeze, so you need to keep him alive. Despite this, the TCG Freeze deck is one of the best Genshin Impact decks thanks to the incredible Freeze effect.

Genshin Impact TCG Electro-Charged Deck

  • Character Cards: Mona, Fischl, Collei
  • Equipment Cards: Wine-Stained Tricorne, Thunder Summoner’s Crown, Magic Guide, Raven Bow
  • Support Cards: Wangshu Inn, Paimon x2, Liyue Harbour Wharf, Iron Tongue Tian x2
  • Event Cards: The Bestest Travel Companion! x2, Changing Shifts x2, Leave It To Me! x2, Calx’s Arts x2, Strategize x2, Starsigns

The remaining card slots can be of your choosing since they will likely be fodder for Elemental Tuning.

The aim of the TCG Electro-Charged Deck is to trigger as many Electro-Charged Elemental Reactions as possible. Reactions serve as some of the highest and most consistent damage sources in the new Genius Invokation TCG, so utilising them to their fullest extent is a great starting place.

When using this build, begin with Mona as your active character to deal damage and apply Hydro through her Elemental Skill, since her passive allows you to Fast Switch to Fischl immediately afterwards. Fischl will deal significant damage and apply Electro with Oz to create the Electro-Charged Reaction. Electro-Charged will deal one extra damage to the target while dealing one Piercing damage to the opponent’s standby characters. Use the Wine-Stained Tricorne and Thunder Summoner’s Crown to reduce the cost of Hydro and Electro actions to further improve action potential.

The biggest downside of this deck is that it takes a few turns to get the ball rolling. However, it’s easy to learn and capable of reliable damage through the Electro-Charged reaction.

That’s everything you need to know to build the Genshin Impact TCG best deck that suits your playstyle in Genius Invokation.
