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.


Deck rating


  • Almost a guaranteed win against Beatdown decks.
  • Great sustain due to LP gain and decreasing of ATK.


  • Weak against burn decks.
  • Most likely lose to decks that destroys your back row cards.
  • Average duels take about a long 5-15 mins.

How to use

Sword of Deep-Seated and Wonder Balloons is your key card

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.

Try to avoid taking heavy direct damage

While stalling, use cards like 4-Starred Ladybug of Doom and Yomi Ship to extend the duel to build up the effect of Pumprincess the Princess of Ghosts. 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.

Notable additions and replacements

This card can replace De-Spell as it is more convenient due to the fact that it is a quick-play spell card, if you do not mind the LP loss.

I believe you mean magic reflector, the way magic reflector works would not take up 1 spell/trap slot is better than Curse of Royal which will use up 1 slot until your opponent tries to destroy your magic balloon

what if your opponent also stalls with sword of deep seated? It's easy to do this, since deep seated is a quite good card itself because of +500 atk AND def. Once they see this kind of deck, your opponent will also stall with deep seated simply by keep drawing until your card is 7, then discard deep seated. It means a never-ending duel.

If this becomes too popular, I'm guessing Konami will probably take action, based on their list of objectives in the Forbidden/Limited section: -Place certain restrictions on the usage of cards that could hinder smooth progression of Duels.
