Top Player Council Thoughts

“What are your thoughts on Giant Orc?”

grucius:

Trash!

Mr. Cellophane:

Garbage!

Negative1:

These Rewards Are Super Helpful!

Yehhey:

10/10 in looks. He’s absolutely ripped probably slays on Tinder. In Duel Links though 1/10. Crazy to think we don’t have Goblin Attack Force yet.


“What are your thoughts on Scrap Kong?”

grucius:

I don’t even know what to say about this.

Mr. Cellophane:

It needs to be destroyed by other “Scrap” cards to make use of its effect. Useless until we get other Scrap cards and when we do it still may be useless.

Negative1:

Great! A Really Beneficial Addition! Get Everything!

Yehhey:

Scraps were actually pretty decent in the TCG so this card might see play later on when they get more support, though I’m unsure if this particular card was used. They’re all about destroying themselves and gaining effects from other cards based on that. Synchros are coming soon and Scraps are a Synchro archetype so it may be solid investing in a playset. Farm, farm, farm! For now though it’s useless.

Duel Links Card: Good%20Goblin%20Housekeeping
Duel Links Card: Good%20Goblin%20Housekeeping

Strategy

  • Special summon Gate Guardian.
  • Don’t attack at all!
  • Use your draw cards to finish the duel quicker and use Good Goblin Housekeeping to return Winged Kuriboh or Thunder Dragon back to the deck to search them again.
  • Note: Don’t use Cards from the Sky if you’ll end up with 0 cards in deck after the effect since you won’t be able to conduct your battle phase.

Last Turn

  1. Summon Gravekeeper’s Vassal.
  2. Target Vassal with your three Union Attack and Secret Pass to the Treasures.
  3. Enter battle phase and attack directly for victory!

Replacements

  • You can replace one Union Attack with Caligo Claw Crow or a +900 ATK card (Blustering Winds/Mask of Brutality/Axe of Despair/Battleguard Rage) so you can get over 9,999+ ATK.
  • Winged Kuriboh + The Flute of Summoning Kuriboh + Cards from the Sky combo can be replaced for Gravekeeper’s Recruiter + Wonder Wand and 3 other draw cards.
  • Good Goblin Housekeeping is optimal but it can be replaced by other draw cards (filter by “Drawing” in the Card Editor) such as Shard of Greed, Legacy of Yata-Garasu, Jar of Greed etc.

Duel Links Card: Cyber%20End%20Dragon

Strategy

  • Summon The Unhappy Girl as soon as possible!
  • Tristan will not attack The Unhappy Girl at all unless he can OTK, this gives you time to draw Spirit Barrier.
  • Once you draw Spirit Barrier the farm is straightforward, don’t attack with The Unhappy Girl.
  • Use Good Goblin Housekeeping to draw into Summoner of Illusions and Dimensionhole - you’ll need them before the last turn so don’t return them to the bottom of the deck!
  • Set Summoner of Illusions second to last turn and activate Dimensionhole banishing it (so it doesn’t get destroyed).
  • Use your draw cards to get your combo and finish the duel quicker.

Last Turn

You should only have one The Unhappy Girl and a facedown Summoner of Illusions in your monster zones.

  1. Flip summon Summoner of Illusions and tribute The Unhappy Girl to special summon Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon/Master of Oz/Cyber End Dragon.
  2. Summon Gravekeeper’s Vassal.
  3. Target Vassal with two Union Attack and Secret Pass to the Treasures.
  4. Enter the Battle Phase and attack directly for victory!

Replacements

  • You can substitute Summoner of Illusions + Dimensionhole for Mystical Beast of Serket + Temple of the Kings.
  • Good Goblin Housekeeping and Magic Planter can be replaced by other draw cards (filter by “Drawing” in the Card Editor), for example, Jar of Greed, Shard of Greed, Legacy of Yata-Garasu etc. However, if you replace Good Goblin Housekeeping you’ll need to add Pot of Benevolence to avoid drawing Summoner of Illusions or Dimensionhole last.
