How to use

Summoning with 3SD

Both of the monsters you are supposed to summon with Three-Star Demotion have effects to destroy cards on the field. But depending on the situation you would want to summon one instead of the other.

  • By sending a face-up Umi on the field to the graveyard as cost, Levia-Dragon - Daedalus clears the field of all cards except himself. Only summon Levia-Dragon - Daedalus if you have Umi on your field or in your hand, and only if you are confident that your opponent cannot change Levia-Dragon - Daedalus into defense position as he only has 1600 defense.
  • Summon Barrel Dragon when you know the opponent can change your battle position, since he has a good amount of defense. But the down side is that he only has a 50/50 chance of destroying 1 of your opponent's cards which is not that good considering what daedalus can do. Also having umi on the field decreases his attack and defense by 200 points.

Recover life points

After using your life points as cost for activating Three-Star Demotion, use spell cards to heal yourself. Supremacy Berry and Dian Keto the Cure Master are currently the best healing spells in the game.

  • Supremacy Berry recovers an outstanding 2000 life points, but only use when your life points are lower than your opponent's. Otherwise Supremacy Berry's effect will become damage yourself 1000.
  • Dian Keto the Cure Master heals you 1000 life points without any drawbacks or conditions, so use it whenever you like.


Have sphere Sphere Kuriboh on hand if you're not sure if your opponent can change your battle position and you want to summon Levia-Dragon - Daedalus. In case your opponent uses econ or sphere kuriboh on Levia-Dragon - Daedalus then attacks him the next turn, Levia-Dragon - Daedalus will be protected by Sphere Kuriboh.

I feel you. Had that in the TCG, first with Infernitys then with RaidRaptors. Suddenly everyone hyped the deck and was an expert because they played the deck for "such a long time" and you just copied them of course...

Yeah I know and that's what bothered me back then. Unnecessary hype for my T2/T3 deck :( Although I defeated some nekroz and shaddolls during their prime time with RR(built the deck when sharp and mimicry lanius came out in the TCG)

I use this deck. But since the skill update, (1)I took out the barrel dragons and seers for a bugroth, hammersharks, and princess fish, (2)replaced Umi with legendary ocean, (3)replaced 2x dian keto with 2x moray spell card.
So with three legendary oceans, you can summon hammer, who can then special summon bugroth (due to star decrease). With legendary ocean, you only need 1 tribute for levia.

So 3SD becomes a safety plan based on your hand.

Legendary Ocean doesn't decrease Bugroth's atk, unlike Umi. Also, Bugroth is very useful so that Levia can finish with one attack or vice versa.

What's the point of running A Legendary Ocean if you're not even using its first effect? You won't be summoning Deadalus without 3SD anyway.

Might as well run 3 Umis since they're far cheaper and have the same purpose in this deck.

The nerf isn't really a nerf only decks that really can be strong is weevil and tea burn a whistle for parasite or doing 1,000 with tea first turn. To stop 3ds unless they have 1-2 supremacy berry in hand.

Where as it's actually stronger now as before it was 1 supremacy a turn
Now you can do 2 since you'd have 1000 left supremacy puts you back to 3 another berry if 2 in hand to 5,000 compared to just back to 4,000.
Then you'll still run into a 3ds into barrel or DMG then double summon or sage stones

Like Passerby said, that's only the case if you start with 2 Berries. And either way, the difference between 5k LP and 4K LP is doesn't make much of a difference. The thing is without 2x Berries in your hand you won't be able to just activate 3SD again the next turn and get another monster out. You now need 2 Berries to activate it again, rather than just 1. Definitely a nerf that will hurt a lot.

Hello, Paradox Brothers, with just 1 Supremacy Berry you will only be able to activate Three-Star Demotion a single time, while you would be able to activate it another time before the update. You will now need to use 2 Supremacy Berries to activate Three-Star Demotion another time. Thank you for continuing to play "Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links"

with legendary ocean there is no need for Umi in this deck, as Legendary Ocean has no detriments for barrel dragon.
