This deck uses Scorpion mainly to increase its attack so you can use Riryoku and give it to Piranha. If the scorpion has over 6,000 attack. You can use double Riryoku to piranha to deal over 10,000. This can give you 8,000 duel assessment depending on your number of glossy/prismatic cards.

Note: Serket and Temple of Kings aren't necessary. You can change it to other glossy/prismatic cards or some Bubonic Vermins.

Set skill

None. This decks work without skill since it was built to allow all characters to get drop skills,

How to use this deck

This deck is mainly used to get a high score against Lvl 40 Rex Raptor and Mako Tsunami to get your Legendary Duelists to learn drop skills. You can get around 6,000 score with any LD.


  • Summon Millennium Scorpion as soon as you can. This is so that it can build up some attack increase to make sure it goes over 5,000. Keep destroying enemy monsters until you are left with 0 cards

  • Ritual summon relinquished but don't take control of your opponent's monster, since you want scorpion to kill it. Tribute summon it into a scorpion or let it get destroyed so it doesn't fill a monster slot.

  • If you want to use piranha army, make sure to have 1 monster slot open so you can summon it on the last turn. Since you need to get scorpion out, ritual summon and fusion summon, you will want to manage your monster field carefully. You can either ritual summon relinquished and let it get destroyed or get Bracchio-raidus out and use it as a sacrifice to get relinquished out.

  • Use any prismatic/glossy cards that you have. Each glossy cards give 100 points when you use them, while prismatic gives 200. They can add up to a lot if you use multiple. Replace any unused cards in the deck so you can put in whatever your prismatic/glossy cards are.

Note: You can't re-use a prismatic/glossy cards for extra points. Example: You play a prismatic cerberus, then use hane-hane to return the Cerberus to summon again. It will only give 200 points instead of 400.

Aim to deal over 5000 damage!

Summon the scorpion as soon as possible to ensure that it can destroy as many monsters as you can from the start of the duel. If you can reach 5,000 damage, that is fine. Use riryoku and halve the blue eyes or any other high attack monsters that is in the field to put into your scorpion for the last boost of damage.

Dealing over 10,000 damage with scorpion

You need at least 6,000 attack on scorpion, then summon piranha out on the last turn and use 2 Riryoku to sap Scorpion's attack to put it to piranha. Use another monster to destroy any set monster your opponent has on the field and use the piranha to deal the finishing blow.

That "secret passage" (something) spell card, allowing a 1000 or lower ATK monster to attack directly this turn - wouldn't it be much better than to risk activating a flip effect or the like?

You use this deck to farm skills against Rex Tea or weevil. They don't have anything like that.

What is the point of the 2 Great Whites against level 40 Rex, wouldn't it be better to replace with level 4 monsters with higher attack (Dunames Dark Witch for example, or even 1700 Kaiser Sea Horse/Axe Raided/Warrior Dai Grepher etc.?)

I think they just wanted to list some cheap stuff that you can get easily through duel rewards and such. In the description, they mention replacing the Great Whites with Jerry Beans Man or something once you get better cards.

Please update this deck !!!
Capadoccio 1/1/1970
Note this deck is outdated. An Earth/High Level Draw Sense and a x3 Costdown would go great with this deck; adjust accordingly ofc

How to improve the deck with some more hard to obtain cards?
anoymous 1/1/1970

GameA1 1/1/1970
Well, this is a budget deck so such risk still exist.

Draw sense: high lvl
isnt this one the most woanted skill for this deck?
Zenmaister 8days ago
I would say restart, if you have it. If not, use D-S low level, since you have to take 1800 damage, which usually means you have no monsters.

How good does this deck do with Auto Duel on the SD? (Currently I'm Stage 41 fighting lvl 39 decks)

You need to adjust your thought. Because the AI seems to know what you wanted the most and decide...
i am so upset that yugi muto didn't drop even 1 union attack but i have been fighting lv.30 ...
I see this more of a Zombie type rather than Fiend type.
