In a Yu-Gi-Oh Deck, there are a total of 40 to 60 cards. It may contain duplicates, but will generally be constructed from:

- Magic cards
Depending on the Deck purchased, you may have more than just a deck of OCG Cards. They often come with several OCG accessories like a playmat or a rulebook. If you want to get these products out of packs, you can always get Yu-Gi-Oh! individually.
The advantage of these preconstructed decks is that they are already playable if you want to face other duelists in amateur or competitive matches or even during Remote Duel games. A Yugioh Deck is often built around a specific monster/universe so that the cards can communicate with each other. The more experienced among you will even go so far as to make your own Card Deck!
