Notes

  • The Setup you want on the field to stall is Zombie World and Labyrinth Wall.
  • Zombie World must be activated very early before Arkana has a chance to summon Dark Magician.
  • Use Planet Pathfinder to search out Zombie World.
  • In case Arkana summons Dark Magician Before you have Zombie World, use Floodgate Trap Hole on him.
  • Shard of Greed, Jar of Greed, and Legacy of Yata Garasu is used to deck out faster and draw the cards you need.
  • On the final turn, put your Labyrinth Wall to attack position and special summon Machina Cannon in attack position then use Shield and Sword.

Elements Unite!

The most consistent deck at the moment. Click here for more details about this deck.

Notes

  • Summon Gate Guardian immediately, he has a high enough attack for you to stall the entire duel.
  • To protect your Gate Guardian from Thousand Knives use Ready for Intercepting, Magic Jammer, or Riryoku Field. Ready for Intercepting Works because Arkana cannot activate Thousand Knives if you flip Dark Magician face-down immediately after it is summoned.
  • It might be safest to set 2 of your defensive cards at a time because Arkana is able to sometimes summon 2 Dark Magicians in one turn.
  • Attack Arkana's face-down Dark Magician.
  • Shard of Greed, Good Goblin Housekeeping, and Jar of Greed are used to draw into your defensive cards quicker and so that you can deck out quicker than Arkana.
  • Remember to activate Last Day of Witch during the final turn if your opponent controls Dark Magician before you summon anything. This is to prevent Arkana From using Dark Renewal.

If you have glossy copies of the cards, you can use them to get more DA. I think 7k DA is somehow enough!

I made it 8 cards in thanks to an etaqua and didn't have a single summonable monster before the match was over.

I got 2 red eyes, fusion gate, 3 polys, secret pass, and etaqua. Brickkks.

LOL! xD thank you so much! In fact, yesterday, the drop rate was literally crazy giving me all the cards I need. ( got about 8 platinum packs in one day!) This was really hilarious! I hope you got at least 3 copies of those Anti-Arrows for it's a very important card besides Arkana's Dark Magician.

Yes he did. And I Riryoku Field him to oblivion. But most of the time I just destroyed all of his monsters and not give him the chance to summon his DM.

I know this isn't relevant for this page (Arkana farming), but I just wanted let you know that in Mid-August, we will finally be able to play as a "long-awaited character from the original series". You know who I'm talking about. No, not Yugi Muto or Duke Deblin. I'm talkin about the real deal. Think about it for a sec. Yes, you guessed right. I'm talking about...

Nah, Tristan is a gangster. If there's one male that is elegant enough, it would be Super Pegasus.

Arkana LVL50: lol There are TWO Lengedary Duelists coming. Early August: The "Elegant" Duelist (Super Mai. Still not confirmed tho). Late August: "long-awaited character from the original series". That could be Tristan.

Pretty sure that it will be Super Mai for Early August. The Late August LD might be Tristan or Duke Devlin. Hopefully! Hehe

13 duels against Arkana on level 40 ,13 wins all with 7400+ and got 2 dark magicians,2 dark eradicators and all SR too,am I damn lucky? Looks like it's coming back cause I still dont have any supremacy barry and have all other cards from Tea 5 or 6 times.I've posted deck earlier but here is again,elements unite,you can add one more ready for intercepting to be more safe but so far I have always draw riryoku field or ready in first 8-9 cards.He will never summon dark magicians unless he have thousand knives in hand .So far for me is 100% of course it will not be always 100% but elements unite is most consistent for level 40 just try to thin your deck fast and draw riryoku field or ready because you have 4 cards you need and he have only 1 ,thousand knives :)

You can destroy all his monsters with your gate. If he manages to summon his magician you either use ready for interception or riryoku field because he will use his knifes to destroy your gate. After that you got game. Mill your deck, use the treasure, martyr and piranha on your last turn. Et voila.

This deck is fast and consistent
- Use Ready for Intercepting everytime Arkana summons DM, then attack his DM with Gate Guardian on the next turn
- On your last turn, special summon Darkflare Dragon by banishing Sanga and Recruiter from your graveyard

Recruiter. Nvm, got it.

what the? Reply
He only use when there is face up? Not because he is out of his 6 spellcasters?
I got hit by his once, maybe it just me?

Maybe it's AI glitch, Arkana will never use Dark Renewal if he has no face-up monster on his field

Thanks for the deck.
I really don't like him having Thousand knife before I have ready for intercepting.
Do you guys think it is safer to change 3 pot of Greeds to 3 riryoku fields

Guaranteed win, unless Arkana manages to summon DM and activates Thousand Knives right before you get any Riryoku Field or Ready for Intercepting

20% and I'm generous. Would work better if you could have 12 ryrioku fields in the deck.

This worked well. Just keep destroying his defense monsters. Get a tribute with seer and another monster. Use dian keto and 3sd to get to 1000 lp on last turn and hit him for over 10k. Have to just hope he doesn't deck out faster.

How can you counter Anti-Magic Arrows? It specifically says that "Cards and effects cannot be activated in response to this card's activation.". Say it's your last turn and you activate union attack for your final combo. Then Arkana counters with AMA and since UA's effect activates at the start of the BattlePhase it would be negated. I know that you can use the Piranha+GotM combo, but is there any other way?
<< Anonymous(Nicholas)
Nicholas Reply
In other words, it doesn't matter if you activate UA in your main phase. Its effect still takes place on the battle phase.
<< Anonymous(Nicholas)
MadRest Reply
Just because an effect is used doesn't mean it is always "activated." Union Attack is activated only once, during the Main Phase.
<< Anonymous(MadRest)

Union attack increases your monsters attack at the start of the battle phase. Ergo it activates in the battle phase.
