Updated July 16, 2018 - New Update
In this article
Lvl: 50 Gladiator Beast Andal will now appear with a 20,000pt deck, beat it for even more rewards!
More intruders will now appear on the Event Map, you can obtain up to 15,000pt and coins by dueling them!
- This is the second time this event is taking place. It is a PVE event where you duel against decks created by other duelists all over the world!
- This event takes place from July 13th to July 23rd.
- Before you choose to Duel/Auto-Duel you get a sneak peak of 1 card in your opponents deck so you have a vague idea what you’re going up against.
- You’ll now be able to purchase “EXAP” to instantly refill your AP and keep on dueling!
- Bait people into dueling you by having a bad ace card (this is usually the highest level monster in your deck) and name your deck accordingly. For example, I named my deck below “Retro Roids” so most would think it’s an easy to beat Roid deck with Syrus as the character to increase the deception!
It’s working out well so far!
- Change your name to “Dkayed”, “Gunsblazing” or another well known personality and maybe a noob will duel you thinking you’re the real deal!
- Always look for opponents who are worth 6000+ points. Keep refreshing as dueling a low point opponent is a waste of AP. However, even if you lose the duel, you’ll still get half the points from the duel.
- Save your AP Potions until the last couple of days to maximize the number of coins you receive as it will likely trigger more “Intruder” spawns.
- Play 5 Ranked Duels each day to get 1 AP Potion!
The following cards can be drawn from the lottery in addition to 1 Gem, UR/SR/R Jewel, Gold and coloured Keys:
Top Player Council Thoughts
“What are your thoughts on the new Gladiator Beast support?”
They’ve came too late and are still missing some of the cards they would need to become relevant again.
Imagine you have a window. Now imagine that it gets shattered. Now imagine you try to piece it back together using band-aids. That’s basically how Konami is trying to fix Gladiator Beasts.
I think it’s nice we got this support for Gladiator Beasts, though at the moment they probably won’t make an impact on the tier list, if in the near future we get Gladiator Beast Gyzarus or Gladiator Beast War Chariot they might.
look at god says:
Gladiator Beast Darius is what Gladiator Beasts needed months ago, but still a great addition to the deck. Won’t do anything right now, but may see play if Gladiator Beasts get more support down the road. Gladiator Beast Equeste has a good effect as a potential 1 off. The rest don’t do enough in my opinion, Gladiator Taming will be good if Gladiator Beasts ever become the best deck in the format… Lol!
Gladiator Beast Equeste and Gladiator Beast Darius are a part of what made Gladiator Beasts so good many moons ago in the TCG. Darius would bring back a monster to contact fuse for Gladiator Beast Gyzarus and pop 2 cards, and Equeste would recycle Gladiator Beast War Chariot which negated and destroyed monster effects. Gladiator Beast fans should cross their fingers for both Chariot and Gyzarus in the next mini box because without them these two aren’t enough. As for the others, Gladiator Beast Tygerius can’t be used for a fusion material which is a huge drawback should we get Gyzarus. Gladiator Taming is a great side deck choice for the mirror to steal and shuffle should Gladiator Beasts ever impact the meta again. Gladiator Beast Retiari saw play in the TCG during Gladiator Beasts glory days but I don’t think he’ll be used in Duel Links because 1 banish isn’t much when you can run Dyna, Hero Fur Hire in Fur Hires and banish 3.
Gladiator Beast Equeste + Gladiator Beast Darius will likely be ran as 1-offs to add more utility to the already existing toolbox. Gladiator Beast Retiari and Gladiator Taming would have been nice a few formats ago but are far too slow now. Gladiator Beast Tygerius is the worst of the bunch.
Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys died almost 7 months ago. Gladiator Beast Darius & Gladiator Beast Equeste are almost unplayable without a main phase 2. Gladiator Taming is good for the mirror match but until Gladiator Beast Gyzarus and Gladiator Beast War Chariot comes around I don’t see any of the Gladiator Beasts support doing anything in the format.
Gladiator Taming is without a doubt the best card out of the bunch. Slapping Enemy Controller onto this card with an easy activate condition makes this card incredibly good. However, the archtype itself still lacks in ways to swarm the board fast and ways to protect itself. Gladiator Beasts are still too slow with one summon a turn. Also, losing a monster is devastating for this deck so the support from Gladiator Beast Darius to summon from the graveyard doesnt help that much considering that a swing must go through before the effect is live. I dont see this deck making a comeback off these cards alone.
