  • 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.

Here's my approach. I consistently get 8000+ using Chaos Command Magician and the skill Three-Star Demotion.

Skill: Three-Star Demotion
Chaos Command Magician x3
Gravekeeper's Vassal x1
Union Attack x2
Supremacy Berry x3
*Reload x3
Magical Mallet x3
**Storm x1
Acid Rain x3
Secret Pass to the Treasures x1

* Initially I ran one Reload that I probably got during a wild encounter (roaming) in the Duel World. You can get one if you have an SR ticket.
** You don't need Storm. I didn't know what else to run. See my explanation below.

Duel Assessment:
Comeback Victory 2500
Low LP 500
Cards on the Brink 500
Victory by Effect Damage Only 1000
Played Prismatic Card 200
Played Glossy Card 100
Over 9999 Damage! 3000
Destroyed 10 Monsters 300
Activated Spell 100
Performed Tribute Summon 300

Score: 8500

An alternative is to include 3 Mausoleum of the Emperor to summon without tributing. You can replace the Storm and 2 of the berrys, since the Mausoleum will cost only 1000 LP per use to summon CCM

An elegant solution! Thanks for sharing.

I haven't tried it, but I assume he would try to summon Twin-Barrel Dragon in attack position to try to destroy the Mausoleum with the dragon's effect like I explained in my guide. If so, you will risk losing the "Effect Only" points and give him a chance to summon his stronger dragons. Also, he could use the Mausoleum for himself and summon a stronger dragon and destroy your CCM.

Why so much fuss. I used a bunch of 4* beater with position changing cards; then tribute summon ccm. No issue so far
Labtrinth is work too.

Just keep in mind that Barrel Dragon (*7) can not target skill card and Twin Barrell can use it effect only 1 time when it summons

So, just banishing your wall only when it target by card effect.

if you only have 1 DimensionGate like i do... but some MegneticMosquito or equal monster cards i guess you can banish your LabyrinthWall in your turn with DinensionHole and place a monster just to protect your Wall... its a guessing game but might can help for a cheaper variant

Your deck is nice bro. But i think you have to change the draw power trap card to any monster that draw card. Cuz your spell/trap zone might clog up with dimension gate and you need 8 cards in the last turn! (1x double summon, 2x union, 1x temple king, 1x secret pass, 1x serket, 1x vassal, 1x axe) WOW that's so many to hold!

Lab deck's weakness is too many cards in your hand before reach the last turn but cannot set some of them in the spell/trap zone. So replace any spell/trap draw power with monster draw power like skelengel or the train.
I use this Breeding Jam Machine to farm Keith lvl 40. The goal is to give BJM to Keith in your first turn, either by using exchange gift or Surprise Present skill, and to summon UG or Rai. This is a quite cheap deck to farm Keith with almost 100% win ratio and 8k score.
If you don't have surprise present skill, you can try a version using Restart skill and some reload/magial mallet to ensure both UG/rai and GE in your first turn. However, the wining ratio of this version is barely 80 % (you can also use this version to obtain 3DS cancer for Paradox Brothers).

The graverkeeper's vassal's effect will not be canceled. Because effect of 07 is "The effects of Effect Monsters """cannot be activated""", however, vassal's effect is a "Sustainable effect", which do not need to be activated in Yu-Gi-Oh rules

Here's the deck I've been using. All you need to do is summon Phantom Skyblaster or Cosmic Compass, generate a token and tribute both for Tyrant's Tirade. After that, you can safely summon the Wall. Use Dark Mimic Lv3 (Lv1 won't work) as a drawing engine and to summon Dark Necrofear. During the last turn, use shield and sword and go for the Vassal Union combo.

I'm running a variant of this, but with a slightly different end game:

Phantom Skyblaster x3
Stray Lambs x3
Tyrant's Tirade x3
Cat of Ill Omen x2
Curse of Royal
Temple of the Kings
Celestial Transformation
Mystical Beast of Serket
Shield and Sword
Gravekeeper's Vassal
Secret Pass to the Treasures
Union Attack x2

The point is to have 6 cards capable of generating the double token for Tirade.

There's no Stop Defense in his lv 40 deck. Only his lv 30 deck has Stop Defense, so if you want to farm lv 30, you will need another deck.
My first prismatic from him .thanks keith
