Duel Awards - Eternal Fame Awaits!

The “Duel Awards” are a mini competition during events. There are three categories; the winners have their names posted here - immortalized forever on Duel Links Meta!

Best Drop - Giggleplex

Highest Duel Energy - AwesomeTed

Most Prismatic Drops - wowerer


Update

  • Don’t forget to fill out the event survey - let Konami know what’s on your mind!

Jesse Lvl. 50 will now spawn in Duel World (GX) with a stronger deck in tow!

  • He will use Rainbow Path to negate your attack so substitute a non-essential card in the Cerberus Farm Deck (since Jesse appears only in Duel World (GX) you won’t be able to use the skills required for the other decks) for Anti-Magic Arrows, Hey, Trunade!, Fire Formation - Gyokkou, Nobleman of Extermination etc. Alternatively, Trap Jammer or Seven Tools of the Bandit would also suffice however it’s more risky since they could be the last card in your deck.

New event missions have also been added - get up to 100 Gems!

Mission Reward
Win 1 Duel with Rainbow Dragon in your Deck, while playing as Jesse Anderson 10 Gems
Summon Rainbow Dragon 1 time in PvP 20 Gems
Summon Rainbow Dragon 2 times in PvP 20 Gems
Summon Rainbow Dragon 3 times in PvP 20 Gems
Reduce your opponent’s LP to 0 by inflicting battle damage with Rainbow Dragon 30 Gems

Good%20Goblin%20Housekeeping
Good%20Goblin%20Housekeeping
Good%20Goblin%20Housekeeping
Blue-Eyes%20Ultimate%20Dragon
Master%20of%20Oz

Strategy

  • You win if you have Cloudian - Turbulence + The Sanctuary in the Sky/Spirit Barrier combo!
  • If you don’t have Cloudian - Turbulence in your opening hand take 1500 damage so you can activate your skill and draw it
  • Use Zeradias, Herald of Heaven to search for the Field Spell
  • 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)

Last Turn You should only have Cloudian - Turbulence and a facedown Summoner of Illusions in your Monster zones

  • Flip summon Summoner of Illusions and tribute Cloudian - Turbulence to special summon Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon/Master of Oz
  • Summon Gravekeeper’s Vassal
  • Target Vassal with two Union Attack and Secret Pass to the Treasures
  • Enter Battle Phase and swing for victory!

Replacements

  • Good Goblin Housekeeping and Jar of Greed can be replaced by other draw cards (filter by “Drawing” in the Card Editor), for example, 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

Risks

  • Technically Crystal Beast Amethyst Cat gets through The Sanctuary in the Sky but it shouldn’t be a common issue

Level 40 Unhappy Girl Farm - created by Hi_Im_Flabber

Good%20Goblin%20Housekeeping
Blue-Eyes%20Ultimate%20Dragon

Strategy

  • Lock down Jesse’s monsters with The Unhappy Girl
  • Only summon two The Unhappy Girl as you need one free zone for Gravekeeper’s Vassal
  • Attack his monsters with The Unhappy Girl to “lock” them down so they can’t attack (you take no battle damage with Holy Guard)
  • Before the last turn, ensure Temple of the Kings is on the field and tribute summon Mystical Beast of Serket - tribute both to special summon Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon
  • Use your draw cards to finish the Duel quicker

Last Turn You should only have one The Unhappy Girl and Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon in your Monster zones

  • Summon Gravekeeper’s Vassal
  • Target Vassal with two Union Attack and Secret Pass to the Treasures
  • Enter Battle Phase and swing for victory!

Replacements

  • Good Goblin Housekeeping and Shard of Greed can be replaced by other draw cards (filter by “Drawing” in the Card Editor), for example, Jar 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 Temple of the Kings or Mystical Beast of Serket last
  • Crystal Seer can be replaced by Skelengel, Dekoichi the Battlechanted Locomotive, Dark Mimic LV1 etc

Level 40 Cerberus Farm - created by Jadehex

This is just a generic Cerberus farm decklist, you can optimize it however you want!

Hieroglyph%20Lithograph
Hieroglyph%20Lithograph
Blue%20Medicine
Mooyan%20Curry
Mooyan%20Curry

Strategy

  • Take 1500 Damage so you can activate Draw Sense: LIGHT to draw Mythical Beast Cerberus.
  • Summon Cerberus and activate enough Spells so it has ATK points higher than what Jesse can reach (3000 ATK is a safe point since Crystal Beast Topaz Tiger + Crystal Release = 2800 ATK).
  • Keep activating Spells until you draw the last card of your deck.
  • Use these cards to manage your LP so you can achieve “LP on the Brink”.
    • 2x Hieroglyph Lithograph or Abyssal Designator
    • 2x Mooyan Curry
    • 1x Blue Medicine
    • 1x Twister
    • 1x Pot of Benevolence

Last Turn

  • Use Stop Defense and then Riryoku on one of Jesse’s Monsters.
  • Activate all the Spells left in your hand but prioritize reaching 100 LP unless you don’t have enough ATK points to deal 9999+ Damage.
  • Finally, attack his Attack position Monster and claim victory!

Replacements

  • Literally none of the spells matter except Stop Defense and Riryoku as long as you can still deal 9999+ Damage.
  • Stop Defense can be replaced by Shooting Star Bow - Ceal, Big Bang Shot, Fairy Meteor Crush etc.
  • Skill can be swapped for Draw Sense: Low-Level.

  • Activate your skill to play Labyrinth Wall.
  • Idealy you want to open with at least 1 Wall of Disruption, 1 Planet Pathfinder (to search for Acidic Downpour), or 1 Acidic Downpour.
  • When you manage to play one of these cards against Jesse, his monsters won’t be able to get over your Labyrinth Wall.
  • Then you are free to draw into all your cards for the final turn.

Last Turn

  1. Activate Shield & Sword.
  2. Switch Labyrinth Wall into Attack position.
  3. Special Summon The Fiend Megacyber.
  4. Summon Gravekeeper’s Vassal.
  5. Target Vassal with two Union Attack and Secret Pass to the Treasures.
  6. Enter Battle Phase - attack Jesse’s life points directly!
