How to use

Starting Hand

Mystic Shine Ball utility


  • Most of the turn you'll be having your Mystical Shine Ball faced up on the field, to be use along with Order to Charge to clear any threat from your opponent.
  • Enemy Controller being one of the most versatile support card, if your opponent has 2 monsters on their field and one of them is a normal monster, you can tribute one of your Mystical Shine Ball to get the normal monster and use Order to Charge to deal with his other monster.

Creature Seizure

Use Creature Seizure when your opponent controls only 1 powerful monster, so that he will have no choice but to give you control of it. Change Mystical Shine Ball to attack position before using Creature Seizure, so that you can inflict battle damage to your opponent when you attack the Mystical Shine Ball you gave him.

Other useful cards

  • Any high attack low-leveled Normal beater can be added to this deck for extra offense, but be careful not to add too much as it will hinder your main play.

How to use (Speed Draw Ver.)


  • Since this deck consist of mostly spell cards, making Eliminating the League more convenient to use.
  • Order to Smash is the best card to deal with your opponent's back row, clearing up to 2 spell/trap cards.
  • Jar of Avarice also serves as another draw engine for this deck, and can bring back 5 cards from your graveyard to your deck making them re-usable, it can also prevent you from drawing out.

I'm starting to notice how well Venus synergies with gem knights. It's amazing. I'm currently working on a deck recipe that's looking nice. It uses order to charge and creature seizure, as well as the fusions. I've never noticed the gem knight fusion fairy card until now. That alone opens up many possibilities...
I'm standing on Gold 3 with this deck. Anyone have any suggestions for improvement.
I do not own the enemy's controller.

Bro, you need some more cards. If this is the best you got then start leveling up some characters like Mokuba and Kaiba. Can combine their decks for a nice dragon deck.
Easiest decks to make are magicians deck with Yami.

My advice. Clear the mini boxes. Aim for Super Rush Headlong, Wall of Disruption, Regretfull rebirth and Chalice. Get some 1900 beaters. Level up Mai and Odion for their defensive traps. That's an upgrade to your deck right now.
If you're going for a lotus deck. Lotus is priority ofcourse. Get one (or 2) asap.
this example deck is pure trash. i got to KoG with my version of this deck while only dropping a few games((toons,dc,etc))

show a better version or GTFO.
My build.. from gold 1 to legend 1 in 59 wins games...
Replaces: 3 knight of the flame.. (3 vanilla beaters, chose knight of the flame cause the added effect (bye naturias, reZd-reBd, toons).
Tech change: if you are facing to much decks that relies in backrow, remove 1 vanilla beaters and add another order to smash.

This deck made me Silver 1 from Rookie 1. Excellent.
I think this one is better

This example is poorly made. I got to KOG with mine. I have a video on my youtube if anyone would like to use it as well. Just search up datteleo.
These decklist are trash. I'm on a 13 game win streak and have made it to plat 1 so far with this decklist:
Red Lotus x2
Venus x3
Shine Ball x3
Blazing Inpachi x2
Dunames x2
OTC x3
White Elephant Gift x2
Windstorm x1

I made it to KOG with my own recipe.
I don't understand why this is tier 2. I have never won against red lotus :(
I cringe at the thought of the dead draw potential. Only 6 playable cards off the deal.

I've faced some Venus Red Lotus decks, and that's indeed the case. If it works, it works, but in most of my duels against those players they were just randomly slapping cards on the field because they never drew Venus.
Atmosphere x 1
Red Lotus x 1
Sphere Kuriboh x 1
Venus x 3
Shine Ball x 3
Great Angus x 1
OtC x 3
Econ x 2
Elephant's Gift x 3
Michizure x 1
Windstorm x 1
