  • Powerful ATK stats.
  • Destroys opponent’s monsters equal to the number of face-up Psychic Type monsters you control (Including this card)


  • Weak DEF stats susceptible to position switching plays.
  • Steep Life Point cost to activate its effect.
  • Requires 2 Tribute materials to Summon, can be challenging to bring to the Field.


  • Serene Psychic Witch is not able to banish Master Gig because its ATK is more than 2000.
  • Brain Research Lab, Master Gig, and Destructotron are 3 essential cards to wipe your opponent’s Field clean of monsters and Spell/Traps, and prepare you for a direct hit.
  • You can use Rainbow Life should your Brain Research Lab is destroyed and you would take damage from it.
  • It is not advisable to use Firm as the Earth skill if you are using Brain Research Lab because returning Brain Research Lab to your hand will still result in you taking Life Point damage based on the number of counters on that card.

Speed Summon

You can send BOXer with 2 counters to the Graveyard in order to Special Summon Master Gig directly from your Deck to your Field. This is the fastest way to get Master Gig out.


Card of the Soul is able to search for Master Gig from your Deck to your hand when your Life Points are 4000. Doctor Cranium is able to search for Master Gig from your Deck to your Hand when it was destroyed by battle, you will need to pay 800 Life Points to use this effect.

Psychic Support

In order to use this monster’s effect, Brain Research Lab is very good as you do not take Life Point damage when activating any Psychic-type monster’s effects. Additionally, it allows you to Normal Summon another Psychic-Type monster in addition to your Normal Summon/Set. However, you will need to end the duel fast before this Field Spell is destroyed by your opponent. Together with Destructotron, you can almost be guaranteed to clear your opponent’s field by destroying their Spell/Traps as well, leaving you with a direct attack chance. Psychokinesis allows you to destroy either your opponent’s monsters or their Spell/Traps while you control at least 1 Psychic-type monster, you need to pay 1000 Life Points to use this card. Field Barrier as further support to ensure your Brain Research Lab does not get destroyed easily.

This card just reminded me some guy won the tournament @Duel Links Meta playing a Psychic deck. Wow
For some reason, Master Gigs effect doesn't work with Brain Research Lab in PvP, only against NPC's, which is weird as fuck...
Is his effect of destroying cards bugged? I've tried to use it, but it won't give me the option to activate it (i had the same amount of psiychic monsters as the enemy had of cards). P.S.: I use the Android/Google Play Store version of the game
Quickest way to summon it is with Teleport not that grey staple Boxer. Leave non-psychics out of this deck.
-_- smh

Gold Sarcophagus into D.D.R./Brain Hazard would also work.
Hmm... Considering the format.. I don't see it yet.

With 20 cards, there is just no way you can balance defense and offense correctly and bring this chunky thing out quickly.

The only "fast" method i found was to use psi-beast to banish it yourself and use brain hazard or premature return.. sort of like a red eyes.. then you could use advance draw and draw 2 since beast goes to lvl 8... But that just seems like a lot of wasted slots.

Also, be warned, if you do somehow make a working deck with this thing..

That effect text is misleading, you can destroy a number equal or lesser but if you have two out and they only have one, it won't work.
This gay looks like some arrancar dude from Bleach on his ressurection form.
