The best way to learn Ritual Beasts is to practise the combo on the Duel Links Meta Deck Tester. Here is turn 1 combo from the Ritual Beast Guide. The guide also containts 7 differents combos and other tips.

Sample Combo

  1. Elder + Cannahawk: (turn 1 combo)

Ritual Beasts bread and butter turn 1 combo:

  • Normal summon Elder to then normal summon Cannahawk
  • Use Cannahawk to banish Apelio then contact fuse into any Extra deck monster
  • Immediately tag-out into Elder+Cannahawk and use Cannahawk to banish Winda
  • Contact fuse into Ulti-Cannahawk and search, targeting Apelio and Cannahawk,
  • Chain Ulti-Cannahawk's tag-out to the search effect and tag-out into Apelio+Winda, searching any future combo piece necessary (Your own judgement will be necessary here in deciding what to search for future plays),
  • Use Apelio to banish the Cannahawk sent to the grave by Ulti-Cannahawk’s search effect and contact fuse into Ulti-Pettlephin.
  • This turn 1 play allows you to have 2 Tamers and 2 Spiritual Beasts in the banished pile whilst sitting on a high defense monster immune to effect destruction, establishing a solid defensive wall that allows you to tag-out into Winda+Cannahawk on the opponent's turn. If destroyed Winda may float back into Ulti-Pettlephin for another tag-out during the opponent's end phase, you may then use Apelio to banish your destroyed monsters once during the opponent's end phase, and once more at the start of your turn, negating any resource loss you may have potentially incurred.

Ritual Beasts has gained additional hype from the newly added and updated guide, and it's resilience from a common disruptions such as Loading... and Loading... .

The Helper Team has decided to reccomend Ritual Beasts as a good new Player friendly deck, especcially when the deck won the MCS XXX, piloted by grucius. We in the helper team recommend that you watch his gameplay in the tournament in the Grand Finals as a player. It can be watched in the following video:
