  • Potentially high attack depending on number of cards in your hand.
  • Its attack reduction on your opponent's monster is permanent.
  • Destroys monsters that your opponent summons if it's below 2,000 attack.
  • Can be special summoned, but will only last until the end phase.
  • Can still be useful even if it has low attack.


  • Difficult to summon.
  • Can only last for 1 turn if special summoned.


Tribute summoning

Getting the tribute fodders can be easy if you use tokens or Ra's Disciple, but it won't be good if you don't pair them with other cards that can take advantage of it. You will also need some protection spell/trap cards in order to tribute summon for the next turn, or use Double Summon instead, making it quite a heavy investment and can be bad if your opponent can counter it.

Special summon

Special summoning Slifer will only make it stay until the end phase, but it can still be effective if you summon it during your opponent's turn before they summon monsters. It can also still be good if you want an extra attack during your turn if you can secure the win.

Draw power

Draw cards for certain monster type/attributes like Wonder Wand, Cards of the Red Stone, or even Soul Transition can be good if your deck synergizes with them, but cards like Jar of Greed or Good Goblin Housekeeping can be used in almost all decks, and it can even work as a surprise attack increase for Slifer. Golden Bamboo can also be good if you can pair that up with cards like Maha Vailo or Mythical Beast Cerberus.

Dealing with set monsters

Since Slifer can destroy, or cripple your opponent's summoned monsters, people will often set their monsters to defend against an attack. You can use cards like Meteorain or Big Bang shot to inflict some piercing damage when attacking them, or you can simply go for direct attacks instead. You can use cards like Shadowslayer, Secret Pass to the Treasures, or Shooting Star Bow - Ceal. Gravity Axe - Grarl can also be helpful to keep them locked and prevent flip effects.

Guardian treasure combined with infinite cards is a way to quickly power up slifer. Also mausoleum of the emperor can help you get high level monsters on the field to stall. And the creator can also bring back powerful cards from the graveyard to tribute

Strong level 4 normal monsters. I like fusions lately. Thousand dragon, blue eyes ultimate, skull dragon, red eyes black, time wizard, 2 beastking of the swamp, and 2 blue eyes white. It compliments silfer because you still need 1-4 sacrificial cards, but enterchangable sometimes. Silfer can be special summoned?!?!?

You realize this comment was probably made months ago?
I used this deck for pvp and it somehow helps me win several games, most especially against seto kaiba and his upgraded BEWD synchro decks.

1 Slifer the Sky Dragon
3 Silent Magician
3 Silent Magician Lvl 1
3 Ra's Disciple
3 Crystal Seer
3 Silent Burning
2 Three of a Kind
2 Photon Booster

Usually, this deck is tough to use since we need to get the needed cards to win. With this deck, I am not focusing on summoning slifer, but on winning using different card pieces.

For my first 5 games I won by OTK using the disciple-three-photon combo. I can definitely say this slifer variant is a bit consistent when it comes to winning games.
Where is a goood slifer deck including infinte cards I really want to know to farm out some duelists
