  • Dueling against Bandit Keith can still rely on luck due to the nature of his coin toss tactics.
  • Use the lower level monsters as protection and to also thin your deck.
  • Take 1800 damage by either letting him attack you, or use Mirror Wall during the end of his turn, and pay the cost on your turn.
  • Use the skill Reinforcements to get Plasma and special summon him if Keith has Blowback Dragon, or Barrel Dragon.
  • If you summon Destiny HERO - Plasma to take control of Blowback Dragon, you will still need to use defensive spell/trap against his Barrel Dragon since he can still get over your Plasma using his spell/trap cards.
  • On your last turn, special summon Desert Twister and normal summon Gravekeeper's Vassal. Use Secret Pass to the Treasures and double Union Attack to go for the win.

Use the lower level monsters and keep destroying keith's monsters. Don't attack if he has a face-down trap since it could be rare-metalmoprh. Set a magnetic mosquito if you think he will tribute summon either blowback or barrel dragon. Use acid raid if you don't have mosquito to destroy his tribute monsters. It's best to summon BEUD during second to last turn to avoid it getting destroyed early. On the last turn, summon vassal and use the union attack combo.

Summon either the hunter or jerry and destroy keith's monsters when they are in defense position to not lower his LP. If they are summoned in attack position, switch it to defense using otohime on the next turn. Acid raid if their attack is higher than yours, or mirror wall to defend as well as reducing your LP. Lower your LP to more than half of keith's LP and keep destroying his monsters so the BEUD can get a direct attack to deal 10,000 damage after equipped with sword of deep-seated.

Level 40 Keith's deck



  • Machine Dragon monsters

    Keith uses three machine dragons: Twin-Barrel, Blowback, and Barrel. Those monsters have high ATK in current card pool and effects destroying cards you control additionally.
  • Machine and coin toss supports

    He enhances his Machine monsters' stats and effect by using equips cards for Machine-type monsters and Second Coin Toss.

Annoying cards

CardEffect Summary
Twin-Barrel Dragon
Twin-Barrel Dragon
  • 1700ATK is high enough as level 4 monster, and the effect destroying a card you control is irritating.
Blowback Dragon
Blowback Dragon
  • 2300ATK is high as a high level monster requiring a tribute to be summoned, and the effect can be used once per turn.
Rare Metalmorph
Rare Metalmorph
  • 500ATK boost is very powerful.

How to defeat Keith's deck


  • Use equip spells

    Since the ATK of Twin-Barrel Dragon is 1700 and same to that of Axe Raider, the highest ATK level 4 monster you can get, you need to use equips spells or other ATK boost cards to get your monsters to defeat the dragon.
  • Use Spell/Trap removals

    Destroying Keith's Machine Conversion Factory, Second Coin Toss, and Rare Metalmorph is important to help your monsters to beat Keith's Machine monsters.

Best I can say is figure out some way to use Chaos Command Magician or Angel 07. Either way, there's no real point in farming him.
kinda difficult to farm
Yubel deck works on him?

Medusa Control also works very well. You just need the Field Spell/Planet Pathfinder and either Mudusa Worm or Guardian Statue on your starting hand and everything is fine most of the time.
any updated farm deck as of April 2018?
This is the easiest way to farm keith (7k to 8k) depending on the bonus rewards
Skill : Mythic depths
This skill is essential to lower his monsters attack.
optional cards
2x Vorse raider
3x Alien shocktrooper
1x Dunames dark witch
(You can use any 1900+ ATK monsters)
Essential cards
3x Chain destruction
(This is your bread and butter card use it to get rid of all twin-barrel dragons in his deck which is the most annoying card)
2x metalmorph
(to boos your attack in case he used his rare metalmorph)
1x mirror wall
2x pot of benevolence
1x gift of the martyr
1x secret pass
1x plolymerization
1x big koala
1x des kangaro
1x master of OZ
All you have to do is get rid of his twin-barrel dragon, keep attacking his monsters to prevent him from tribute summon and gg.

It was : between 6500 and 8300, with 3 glossy and 1 prismatic.
Swap Bubonic Vermin with Peten The Clawn
more consistent since effect of Peten activates even if destroyed by effect or discarded, and compass is all the Earth you need for Twister.
1 of 3 toughest LD to farm along with Kaiba & Bakura

Nope. He is easy to farm. Toughest LD to farm would be only Kaiba and Yugi Muto.

Tips: just throw in a bunch of 1900 beaters and tribute summon Chaos Command Magician the next turn. Then you are good. For easier win, use Umi skill and includes Acid Rain too.
