Hot New Top
Gandora is secret weapon in BEWD 2021 deck. Most of the cards can be obtained from structure deck with a couple using UR/SR tickets. 1-2 Gandora surprisingly not too bricky. Check out the killer combo

Gandora works very well with keeper of Shrine. BEWD new Swarming Engine in 2021 Ex-Structure will now make Gandora viable

Card needed:
On field: 2 monsters(1 of them White stone of ancient if not in GY already) or Keeper of the shrine
In Hand; Gandora; BEWD, BEAWD (alternative from celebration gift) - At east one of them in hand, the other can be in GY.
In GY: White stone of ancient if it's not on the field already. 1 of BEWD or BEAWD if not in hand.

Combo: Summon Gandora, use affect banish all cards on field; If 1 of BEWD and BEAWD not in hand, use White stone of ancient to get both in hand. OTK possible if there are 4 other cards on the field before Gandora effect.

If no OTK combo, you won't be defenseless as long as Keeper of shrine in the graveyard. It will summon at end of turn after Gandora destroyed with 2100 Def. Dragon's rebirth also good card to set after Gandora used it's effect. So you can change keeper of shrine to a BEWD later.

If white stone of ancient is used as tribute, at end of turn you will have BEWD on field after crippled your opponent card's advantage.

Blue Eyes Gandora Lives!!!
I believe gandora does best in the late game. What the strategy to this deck is to weaken your opponent to ideally between 1500-2500 LP and filling up your field and the opponents field in the process. You can do this by using the supporting cards of relinquished and twin headed thunder dragons. Also, it's great for stalling to have your opponent have even more cards in his field than you with "Windstorm of Equata" and "Sphere Kuriboh". Late game gandora is where the card shines since having "Desert Sunlight" is very pointless, and the point is to have Gandora to finish your opponent, use castle wall, blockman and shattered axe to stall. Do the damage with "Twin Headed Thunder Dragon" and "Relinquished" and you could even use "Sonic Bird" with Kaiba's "Peak Performance" skill. Once he's in 🔥 range (1500-2500 LP) summon gandora, use his effect, and win the game.

Footnote: Overwhelm could be used in the deck if your opponent chooses to negate your attack with "Sphere Kuriboh".

But Overwhelm would be destroyed when you activate Gandora's effect? The only way I can see to prevent Kuriboh is Smoke Grenade of the Thief which synergises with Gandora's effect very nicely.

@ anonymous: you place Overwhelm after summoning and activating Gandora's effect, but before you go into battle

You can't use a trap the same turn you set it. And Gandora's effect will destroy him before overwhelm can be used the next turn

if you have temple of the kings, you can place it right after gandora's effect activates,then you can place overwhelm since temple lets you activate trap cards the turn it is set..but that's gonna be a very rare chance to happen

Can anyone give me the link to the deck build of Gandora that had 3 surpremecy berries, and the Pot of Benevolence? I can’t find it anywhere now and I honestly believe that deck is better then this one :/
Would holy guard work with this deck. Ie: stopping you from having to pay l.p.?

Umm, Holy Guard prevents you from taking Battle Damage on your own turn.

I think you meant Life Cost 0, another Tea skill that actually deal with LP cost.

Assuming you meant Life Cost 0, yes, that's the entire point of the skill
Quick FYI: You can activate Gandora's Effect as many times as you want. If you could get a large hand full of Spell/Trap cards, you could continue buffing Gandora for as many cards as you have in your hand. The downside though is the Health Cost, as always.
Half shut, spell of absorbing light, and stray lambs work great for gandora. Once gandora is put into attack position you can summon stray lambs and activate the effect to destroy two cards for the price of one.

You could also use 3 7 spell cards to gain LP back and use Gandora in a badass farming deck.
