Return 1 card in your hand to your Deck and draw another. The skill can only be used once per turn and twice per Duel.


How to use

Sword & Balloon

The way to win with this deck is by stalling until your opponent decks out. You can never deck out as your key card, Sword of Deep-Seated, will always return to the top of your deck when it is sent to the graveyard. This creates a simple cycle:

  • Activate Wonder Balloons
  • Discard Sword of Deep-Seated with the effect of Wonder Balloons
  • Sword of Deep-Seated returns to the top of the deck
  • Draw it again on your next turn and discard it again

Unless your opponent finds a way to banish or negate this equip card, you will be able to force your opponent to deck out before you do.

LP regeneration

If you feel like your LP is lethally low, you can discard Skull-Mark Ladybug with the effect of Wonder Balloons to gain 1000 LP.

Thinning is winning

Thunder Dragons can be used alongside with Switcheroo to get more draws, giving you more consistency to get the cards you need. A starting Thunder Dragon in your hand will shorten your deck to 18 cards by activating its effect. This will allow you to have a better chance in getting the cards that you need from your deck.

Other useful cards

A useful card to draw out Skull-Mark Ladybug and 4-Starred Ladybug of Doom to the best suited situation.

Any sort of deck that has high atk monsters or even a couple equip spells will demolish this deck
the description of the skill isn't correct
destiny draw usable even better
should update the alternative cards with Outstanding Dog Marron. it has some advantages over Sword of Deep Seated in that it's shuffled to the deck rather than be placed on top.
To those calling this a 'cowards' deck, enjoy hiding behind your useless kuribohs. Haha
