Duel Links Card: Union%20Attack
Duel Links Card: Shield%20&%20Sword

Strategy

  • Activate your Skill to play Labyrinth Wall shuffling any Spells back into the Deck (or if you have two Dark Necrofear in hand, shuffle one back).
  • Set Doomdog Octhros and Dark Mimic LV1/Dark Mimic LV3 to search for Dark Necrofear and thin your Deck.
  • Whenever you have enough Monsters in the Graveyard, Special Summon Dark Necrofear in Defense position (don’t attack with it).
  • Mai has many cards to return your Monsters back to your hand/Deck so swarm as soon as you can.

Last Turn

You should have either one Labyrinth Wall and one Dark Necrofear or two Dark Necrofear on the field.

  1. Activate Shield & Sword.
  2. Switch your two Monsters into Attack position.
  3. Summon Gravekeeper’s Vassal.
  4. Target Vassal with two Union Attack.
  5. Enter Battle Phase and attack one of Mai’s Attack position Monsters with the lowest ATK points!

Replacements

  • Sphere Kuriboh can be replaced with Kuriboh.

Risks

  • You need to Special Summon Dark Necrofear as soon as possible since Mai will use Quill Pen of Gulldos/Spiritual Wind Art - Miyabi to remove your Monsters and attack you directly.

Duel Links Card: Sylvan%20Lotuswain

Strategy

  • Swarm the field with Monsters, using the effects of Sylvan Komushroomo and Sylvan Marshalleaf to destroy your opponents field.
  • Keep on attacking Mai’s Monsters, while excavating each turn.
  • Use Sylvan Lotuswain to place cards at the bottom of your Deck, prioritize one Marshalleaf and two Komushroomo so you can excavate them to clear Mai’s field before you Summon The Winged Dragon of Ra on your final turn.

Tips

  • Activate the effect of World Carrotweight Champion in the Graveyard to send Rose Lover from your hand to Graveyard.
  • When Rose Lover is in the Graveyard you can activate its effect to Special Sylvan Guardioak/Sylvan Hermitree.
  • Be wary not to activate the effect of Sylvan Marshalleaf if Mai has no Monsters on the field.

Last Turn

You should have at least one Monster on the field.

  1. Special Summon Sylvan Hermitree/Sylvan Guardioak by the effect of Rose Lover (and World Carrotweight Champion if you only have two Monsters on the field).
  2. Activate the effect of Sylvan Guardioak to excavate the cards you put at the bottom of your Deck with Sylvan Lotuswain and destroy any backrow or Monster on the field.
  3. Tribute summon The Winged Dragon of Ra using your three Monsters.
  4. Activate Ra’s effect when prompted to pay your life points to increase its attack and to obtain the “LP on Brink” bonus.
  5. Enter Battle Phase and attack Mai’s life points directly!

Strategy

  • Swarm the field and activate the effects of your Geargia Monsters to keep clearing Mai’s field.
  • Maintain your board presence with Powerful Rebirth.
  • Use Pulse Mines, Windstorm of Etaqua and Curse of Anubis to defend against any attacks.

Last Turn

  1. Clear her field using your Geargia flip effects.
  2. Tribute summon The Winged Dragon of Ra using your three Monsters.
  3. Activate Ra’s effect when prompted to pay your life points to increase its attack and to obtain the “LP on Brink” bonus.
  4. Enter Battle Phase and attack Mai’s life points directly!

Replacements

  • You can also play this deck with Restart for consistency however, you’ll need a copy of Back-Up Rider to get over 5,000 damage.
  • Ties of the Brethren can potentially be replaced with Enemy Controller, A Feint Plan and other defensive stall cards.
  • Powerful Rebirth can be replaced with Floodgate Trap Hole.

Risks

  • This Deck can be used against Lvl: 30, however she has a single copy of Destruction Ring which she could potentially use to defeat you after paying for the effect of The Winged Dragon of Ra.

Duel Links Card: Swamp%20Mirrorer
Duel Links Card: Beast%20Rising
Duel Links Card: Beast%20Rising
Duel Links Card: Beast%20Rising

Strategy

  • Summon Hazy Flame Sphynx as soon as possible! You don’t need these exact cards (especially since they’re expensive and difficult to obtain), but these are arguably the most optimal.
  • Once Hazy Flame Sphynx is out, keep boosting her with Beast Rising. Always declare “Beast”/”Beast Warrior” for Swamp Mirrorer.
  • Don’t attack with Hazy Flame Sphynx until it has ~5600 ATK because Mai has Mirror Wall.
  • It doesn’t matter if she destroys Beast Rising by the effect of Harpies’ Hunting Ground as long as Hazy Flame Sphynx got one boost, she can’t get over it. This also lets you stall until you draw another Beast Rising.
  • If you didn’t draw Beast Rising, keep attacking her Monsters so that she can’t Summon Swift Birdman Joe.
  • Be wary not to attack during the third and second to last turns of the farm, as you may destory Harpie Lady 3 who’s effect will stop you cold.
  • This should get you 7,000 Duel Assessment consistently and can hit 8,000. Use Cosmic Cyclone to lower your LP for a “Comeback Victory”, and remember to do a Tribute Summon.

Last Turn

Make sure Hazy Flame Sphynx has over 10,000 ATK so that even if she activates Mirror Wall, you will still do enough damage to defeat her.

  1. Use Cosmic Cyclones to clear her backrow if you have the LP. If you want to be safe, you could put in an Anti-Magic Arrows to prevent her activating Mirror Wall.
  2. Activate H - Heated Heart, targeting your boosted Hazy Flame Sphynx.
  3. Enter the Battle Phase, and attack the Monster with the lowest DEF points!

Replacements

  • Soul Exchange/Dynatherium can be replaced by Mausoleum of the Emperor/Fire Formation - Tensu.
  • H - Heated Heart can be any piercing card: Big Bang Shot, Fairy Metero Crush etc.

Risks

  • Since this is a Hazy Flame Deck do expect it to brick sometimes.

Last Turn

You should have two Blue-Eyes White Dragon on the field.

  1. Summon Gravekeeper’s Vassal.
  2. Target Vassal with two Union Attack and Secret Pass to the Treasures.

Replacements
