  • 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.

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.

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.

How do u avoid stop defense?

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.
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.
it's useless if we don't have mirror wall hell how many gems I spent on neo to get that shit!!?
I second Hazy Flame, only time it didn’t work was user error. You don’t even need vassal/union attack/secret passage. It’s a great budget compared to the rest of these decks too.
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

Thx man
This is what i use to farm keith and is inspired by the d-hero plasma farm deck used for alexis. Maybe im just getting lucky but it feels pretty consistant.

Using a Hazy Flame deck with Mai can also produce some good results, but you have to get lucky and hope one of his twin barrel dragons don't blow up your beast rising. Other than that; that's another strategy.
how about an ojama lock down deck?

No, you need to get out Ojama King T1 or you screwed up because of Coin Flip
Hazy deck that worked on Marik 40 works well against Keith 40. Restart Hazy for consistency.

there u go the most consistent farming deck
