A Master Duel layout

A Master Duel (マスターデュエル, Masutā Dyueru) is a term used in the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime used to describe the standard Duel format used in previous Yu-Gi-Oh! series. It uses the standard Dueling rules instead of Speed Duel rules.[1]

According to Varis, only a Master Duel can unleash the true potential of Link Monsters.[1]
