Duel Links Card: Master%20of%20Oz

Strategy

  • Stall until you can use Array of Revealing Light and select ‘Machine’
  • Keep using Medusa Worm to destroy his monsters every turn
  • Stall by using Magnetic Mosquito and A Feint Plan

Endgame

  • On the second to last turn set Summoner of Illusions
  • On the last turn, flip up Medusa Worm if he has a monster
  • Flip up Summoner of Illusions and tribute Medusa Worm to summon Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon or Master of Oz
  • Summon Gravekeeper’s Vassal
  • Double Union Attack onto Gravekeeper’s Vassal
  • Enter Battle Phase, activate Anti-Magic Arrows and swing for game

Replacements

  • Any consistency improving skill such as Restart or Duel Standby can be used
  • Medusa Worm or Magnetic Mosquito can be switched with Guardian Statue
  • You must have Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon or Master of Oz
  • Summoner of Illusions endgame can be replaced with Mystical Beast of Serket and Temple of the Kings
  • A Feint Plan can be replaced with Windstorm of Etaqua or Curse of Anubis

Risks

  • This farm deck is hugely reliant on its combo pieces. Not getting Medusa Worm or Array of Revealing Light in time is deadly

Duel Links Card: Massivemorph
Duel Links Card: Massivemorph
Duel Links Card: De-Spell
Duel Links Card: Windstorm%20of%20Etaqua

Strategy

  • Use Destiny Draw to grab The Regulation of Tribe and select ‘Machine’
  • Activate Jam Breeding Machine allowing you to pay the cost of The Regulation of Tribe every turn. Black Ptera can stall until you get this

Endgame

  • Before the last turn, use Massivemorph 3 times on his highest attack monster (usually Ancient Gear Golem)
  • On the second to last turn, De-Spell your Jam Breeding Machine and summon a Black Ptera such that you have at least 2 monsters on the field
  • On the last turn, tribute summon Catapult Turtle
  • Activate Soul Exchange and select the monster you used Massivemorph on
  • Activate Catapult Turtle to tribute his own monster and inflict over 10,000 damage to him

Replacements

  • Destiny Draw is irreplaceable
  • Good Goblin Housekeeping and Jar of Greed can be replaced with Legacy of Yata-Garasu
  • Catapult Turtle endgame can be replaced with two copies of Enemy Controller to take his Massivemorphed monster, switch another monster to attack postion, and swing for game. Don’t forget Anti-Magic Arrows

Risks

  • You can potentially lose before getting to use your Destiny Draw, which is why we use Windstorm of Etaqua
  • Crowler will occasionally use Spell Gear and wipe a monster you used Massivemorph on away. Usually this isn’t detrimental, but it can affect DA

Strategy

  • Use Magical Mallet and Crystal Seer to get a copy of both Spirit Barrier and Astral Barrier, rendering all of Crowler’s attacks useless
  • Fill your board with Cure Mermaid and White Magician Pikeru

Endgame

  • On the last turn , summon The Winged Dragon of Ra and pay LP to make his attack huge
  • Enter Battle Phase, activate Anti-Magic Arrows, swing for game

Replacements

  • Restart can also be used as a skill

Risks

  • Not picking up your Barrier combo is fatal
