See other example deck section below for the fastest version of the deck.
Elements Unite! You will start the duel with 500 Life Points and your starting hand will be 1 card, which is "Gate Guardian". In addition, you will start the Duel with Suijin, Kazejin, and Sanga of the Thunder on the side of your field. Their effects are negated and they cannot attack as long as they are face-up on the field.
Thanks to the skill, you start by having a faced up Suijin, Kazejin, and Sanga of the Thunder on your side of the field, then special summon "Gate Guardian" in the first turn. Have it faced up on the field without destroying a monster will be enough to stall turns. You don't have to destroy monsters your opponent controls and you are able to achieve 8k score with no monster destruction.
Cards let you draw
Use Shard of Greed and Jar of Greed to draw cards faster and thin your deck. Unless your opponent will deckout before you get your combo pieces together, since you'll be starting with 1 hand and having your complete 20 cards in your deck,
Using Elements Unite! skill will not just provide a board advantage, it can automatically provide achievements like Comeback Victory and LP on the Brink (if you don't use any recovery spell), for additional Duel assessment points after winning the duel.
So far what I have for an attempt to stall and win against AI is:
1 Monster Reborn Reborn
3 Floodgate Trap Hole
3 Shard of Greed
2 Enemy Controller
3 Goblin Thief
2 Anti-magic Arrows
1 Restructor Revolution
2 The Spell Absorbing Life.
Obviously, the attempt is to stall with Gate Guardian in defense mode, draw into Antimagic for an attack, Spell Absorbing to make them faceup, Econ to choose one to be attack position after burning them down enough that the attack is fatal. I considered pot of dichotomy but the problem with that was you end up with the 3 gate guardian tributes in hand again and no way of summoning them.
I should mention the other idea I had (which I couldn't make work) was to use Flute of Summoning Kuriboh, Berserker Crush since we have 3 heavies in the grave and was hoping for something to summon banished creatures but it is all a bit combo and slow. The Floodgate and burn plan works more consistently.
I tried a deck based on Aroma with this skill up to Silver/Gold in Ranked and it was okay, gain life and use the life to trigger the Aroma stuff. A bit vulnerable.
Recently I just use it for the Vagabond challenge "1 card in hand" and find that the only outstanding spell I have is a single copy of "Monster Reborn Reborn" (pick 3 monsters in grave, opponent chooses 1 to special summon and banish the rest). Draw engine would seem helpful. To be honest, outside of the Vagabond games, there are better decks to farm with. Still looking for other killer combos for the skill but it seems unlikely.
As long as you use at least one prismatic card and use Union Attack twice, you can replace the fusion summon with one Caligo Claw Crow to get exactly 10000 ATK and still get 8000 score. You can special summon Caligo because Gate Guardian is a DARK attribute monster. Means your hand is less full during the duel since you have less cards to save till the last turn.
Yeah, with two Solom wishes and a draw focus strategy, Lvl 40 Tea currenly mills her deck too fast while increasing her LP past what Gravekeepers Vassal can build up usually. I guess it depends on when she gets the cards, but activating them turn 2 or 3 puts her too high
As long as you dont attack you shouldnt have a problem against her.
I use 3x wonder wand 3x blue dragon summoner since you draw and add a fusion material at the same time.
All cards are easy to get and the fusion can be personal preference you can also ritual summon and get the same ammount of points fyi
I'm looking to farm the Paradox Bros now to replace Etoile Cyber/Blade Skater/Cyber Blader with Giga-Tech Wolf/Labyrinth Tank/fusion-substitute, so I can just use the Cybernetic Fusion Supports instead of Polymerization.
awesome deck tho i think union attack is kind of a overrated gimmick really. I have some prismatic Unions and they turned out to be utterly useless for the most part. For this deck. Pirania+martyr combo will give me around 12,6k dmg and uses less cards and is easier to setup aswell and without prismatic unions whatsoever i still get an easy 8,8k rating everytime pretty much. so why make it more complex if 2 normal cards will do the same job
Notice that the Pira Army doesn't work with Union Attack anymore (I found out after trade my SR ticket for one *cry*). But I still want my damage to be over9999 so I spent some brain juice to still use this deck with NO Grave Vassal, NO Uni Atk or Riryo
So in case you don't have Union Attack, this is the deck that still work using Martyr + Spell Reclamation. It work perfectly but you have to make sure not to over draw so in the end you have 1 card left to throw a graveyard to reclaim Martyr again. Now you can enjoy the farm without Union Attack or Riryoku.
