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, activate Anti-Magic Arrows and attack directly for victory!

Replacements

  • You can substitute Summoner of Illusions + Dimensionhole + Spirit Barrier for Polymerization + Gate Guardian + UFOroid and put UFOroid Fighter in the Extra Deck
  • Good Goblin Housekeeping 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

Risks

  • There is a small risk that he’ll burn you with Bowganian but he’ll most likely tribute for Masked Beast Des Gardius before that happens.
  • If your LP is low enough he will activate Mask of the Accursed but otherwise he won’t use it on Cloudian - Turbulence

Strategy

  • Only keep one monster on the field so you don’t get Lava Golem‘d
  • Continue destroying Marik’s monsters each turn
  • When you activate Swamp Mirrorer declare Beast/Beast-Warrior and any Attribute
  • Boost your Hazy Flame monster to 10,000+ ATK using Beast Rising
  • Go for game when you have three or less cards left in you Deck so you can clear any Powerful Rebirth

Last Turn

  • Summon a monster by the effect of Hazy Flame Sphynx or activate Swamp Mirrorer
  • Attack Marik with your non-boosted monster first to clear the field/bait Powerful Rebirth

Replacements

  • Dynatherium is optimal but it can be replaced for Earth Armor Ninja, or Flame Tiger which is much worse
  • Soul Exchange can be replaced for Mausoleum of the Emperor as he can’t target any of your Hazy Flame monsters with his burn cards so there’s no risk of losing due to them

Strategy

  • Summon Ojama Knight as soon as possible to lockdown at least one of Marik’s monster zones
  • After that, use Ojama Blue and King of the Swamp to keep thinning your deck
  • Do not summon another monster as Marik may tribute them both with Lava Golem

Last Turn

  1. Summon a second Ojama Knight
  2. Activate Ojama Country
  3. Switch both Ojama Knight into Attack position
  4. Summon Gravekeeper’s Vassal
  5. Target Vassal with two Union Attack and Secret Pass to the Treasures
  6. Attack directly for victory!

Replacements

  • King of the Swamp can be replaced for Fusion Recycling Plant, Fusion Sage etc
  • Ojama Country can be replaced by Shield & Sword
  • Ojama Blue can be replaced by Painful Decision
  • If you only have one Union Attack you replace the second with Spell Reclamation
  • Alternatively, you can use the skills Restart or Balance

Strategy

  • Summon The Unhappy Girl as soon as possible!
  • Marik 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 use The Unhappy Girl to lock his monsters as Marik may activate Nightmare Wheel
  • Only summon two The Unhappy Girl as you need one free zone for Gravekeeper’s Vassal
  • Use your draw cards to get your combo and finish the Duel quicker

Last Turn

You should only have two The Unhappy Girl in your monster zones

  • Activate Massivemorph and target Masked Beast Des Gardius, then activate Enemy Controller tributing an The Unhappy Girl
  • Summon Gravekeeper’s Vassal
  • Target Vassal with two Union Attack
  • Enter Battle Phase, activate Anti-Magic Arrows, and attack into his weakest monster for victory!

Replacements

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

Note

  • If Marik summons Bowganian, he will most likely use it as a tribute for Masked Beast Des Gardius, though you may lose some LP it won’t be lethal

Duel Links Card: Jar%20of%20Greed
Duel Links Card: Jar%20of%20Greed
Duel Links Card: Jar%20of%20Greed

Strategy

  • Activate your skill to play Labyrinth Wall only after you activate Sorcerous Spell Wall (use Planet Pathfinder to search for it), so it’s safe from Masked Beast Des Gardius
  • Declare “Divine” + “Divine Beast” with Abyssal Designator
    • The first Abyssal Designator has a 50% chance to hit The Winged Dragon of Ra
    • The second one will certainly get it and send it to the Graveyard
  • Use your draw cards and Planet Pathfinder to finish the Duel quicker, sometimes you may need to crash a Pathfinder (it will have 1300 ATK with Sorcerous Spell Wall) into Bowganian to survive, so keep one on hand

Last Turn

  1. Activate Shield & Sword
  2. Switch Labyrinth Wall into Attack position
  3. Special Summon Anteatereatingant by sending any two non-essential Spells/Traps to the Graveyard (I usually choose an Abyssal Designator, Sorcerous Spell Wall or Legacy of Yata-Garasu/Jar of Greed) but be sure to keep a Sorcerous Spell Wall active
  4. Summon Gravekeeper’s Vassal
  5. Target Vassal with two Union Attack and Secret Pass to the Treasures
  6. Enter Battle Phase, activate Anti-Magic Arrows and attack directly for victory!

Replacements

  • Anteatereatingant can be replaced for The Fiend Megacyber
  • Sorcerous Spell Wall can be replaced by Acidic Downpour, however if you do substitute it’s better to use Hi_Im_Flabber’s Farm Deck below
  • Legacy of Yata-Garasu and Jar of Greed can be replaced by other draw cards (filter by ‘Drawing’ in the Card Editor), for example, Shard of Greed, Good Goblin Housekeeping etc

In comparison to the Labyrinth Builder build above, this deck still allows you to attain “over 9999 damage” even if Marik Summons two Dark Jeroid.

On the second to last turn, set Summoner of Illusions and activate Dimensionhole banishing it.

Last Turn

  1. Flip up Summoner of Illusions, tributing Labyrinth Wall, to Special Summon Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon or Master of Oz
  2. Summon Gravekeeper’s Vassal
  3. Target Vassal with two Union Attack and Secret Pass to the Treasures
  4. Enter Battle Phase, activate Anti-Magic Arrows and attack directly for victory!
