Crystal Beast decks might not be all that viable in Duel Links due to limited cards and only 3 spell/trap zones, but it can still be a fun and gimmicky. Using the Crystal Beast monster's effects to put themselves on the spell/trap zone, you can use cards like Crystal Raigeki or Parallel Twister to destroy your opponent's cards. While the skill Crystal Power boosts your monster's attack.
Crystal Power This turn, the ATK of all face-up monsters on your side of the field increases by the number of Continuous Spell Cards on your side of the field times 200. This skill can only be used once per turn.
Pegasus is the more useful of the bunch since its effect grabs a Crystal Beast monster from your deck. You can select another Sapphire Pegasus to put in your spell/trap zone when you plan to special summon Ruby Carbuncle, you can then special summon the searched Pegasus' effect with Ruby Carbuncle. Tiger can still serve as a good 2000 attack monster to get over most level 4 monsters. Amber Mammoth serves as another beater but is the least important of the three, although sometimes you can use his effect to protect your other monster. When your monsters get destroyed, you can activate their effect to put them in your spell/trap zone. Make sure to never activate 3 monsters there, otherwise you'll end up blocking yourself and cause an instant lose.
When Ruby Carbuncle is special summoned, you can special summon as many Crystal Beast monsters from your spell/trap zone as you can. This makes for excellent swarming potential, and if you special summoned Sapphire Pegasus you also get additional searches.
Use these cards to special summon Crystal Beast monsters especially Ruby Carbuncle. When you have 2 Crystal Beast monsters in your backrow, you can activate Crystal Beacon to special summon Ruby Carbuncle from your deck. Then with Ruby Carbuncle's effect special summon those 2 Crystal Beast monsters. If Ruby Carbuncle is in your spell/trap zone, you can activate Crystal Promise to special summon him and also the other Crystal Beast in the spell/trap zone. You can get Ruby Carbuncle straight from your deck to the spell/trap zone when you summon Sapphire Pegasus, From there you can special summon him with Crystal Promise.
Crystal Bond is a great search card, it allows you to search 2 Crystal Beast monsters from your deck placing one in your hand and one in your spell/trap zone. You can search Sapphire Pegasus to your hand and then Normal summon it to add another Crystal Beast into your Spell/trap zone, giving you a total of 3 searches.
These cards are the ones you will need to remove your Crystal Beast monsters from your spell/trap zone. Parallel Twister can give some flexibility since you can remove any card from your backrow to destroy your opponent's card. Crystal Raigeki simply does the same as Parallel Twister,exchange a Crystal Beast in your backrow to destroy a card your opponent controls. The advantage of Crystal Raigeki is that you can use it during your opponent's turn to disrupt his plays, but as a trap it is also at a disadvantage because it needs to be set a turn before activation. You can use both these cards together by turning on self chain. Send Crystal Raigeki to the graveyard with Paralled Twister. But before Crystal Raigeki is sent to the graveyard, chain it. This gets rid combo gets rid of 2 cards your opponent controls for lesser cost than if they were activated separately.
Magical Merchant and That Grass Looks Greener can provide an alternative version of the deck. You can use them together with Jesse's exclusive skill Meet My Family! and maybe a 30 card deck for a total of 38 cards in your deck at the start of the duel. Using Magical Merchant or Grass Looks Greener can potentially let you summon Rainbow Dragon faster than Last Gamble, but it's also less consistent and relies more on luck.
You can make a Crystal Beast deck made to summon Rainbow Dragon. While it's really not all that viable in the game due to the limitations in Duel Links, you can still get a somewhat reliable deck that can also work as a regular deck, but can be inconsistent because of the need for Last Gamble.
Jesse and Rainbow Dragon blow in this game... how in the hell are you supposed to survive in PVP long enough to summon the danged thing? Not fun, and yeah I know I suck... free player, no cards to build a complete deck with etc.
Lol I play free. With the 1 year bonus gems I started (unable to recover old acc) and immediately built a sylvan deck. Just had to do a week work to get all 3 Rose Lovers.

The new skill makes Rainbow Dragon finally a bit viable to summon in the actual Crystal Beast deck. However the deck is very weak to banishing meta if you are counting on rainbow dragon as your big finisher. But overall the deck is not bad it has good control of the board so pretty cool.
I think Konami is trying to release more Crystal Beast support hoping that it may be as successful as the Amazoness support I mean they release new support on card trader and Jesse is coming in a few day after it is released with promise of new skill and maybe new card... Thoughts?
I agree. Though it will make CB more competitive and fun to play with. I make a unique deck featuring their ace monsters for every characters.
Oh, found E.Tortoise! The 3 zone thing is a pain but the weird thing is how many other support cards they haven' released. Jesse himself used Crystal Bond. Are they planning for Jesse events 3 years in the future...?
