A recently released infographic from Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel has revealed the most played cards in the game, with several powerful and popular cards featuring in the top 10. Since the launch of the digital platform for Konami's highly popular trading card game last year, players have discovered a variety of meta-defining cards.

Now, a new graphic unveils the most frequently used cards in the game.
