Decks to farm Paradox Bros Lvl 40
update 23/05/2017

New card!

Possibly the gratest Dragon support monster ever in Duel Links. Can work as a high ATk level 4 monster. When it is sent to the graveyard, you can special summon non-effect dragon monster from your or opponent's graveyard. Good news for F2P players, this UR card can be traded from the Card Trader.

Cards from Super Joey!

You can get Red-Eyes Spirit and Meteor Dragon Red-Eyes Impact from the Super Joey event! Those two cards significantly strengthened REBD Combo deck.


The objective of the deck is to summon Red-Eyes B. Dragon and control the board by Champion's Vigilance. Similar to Kaibaman deck, but with the added support of Red-Eyes Spirit available from Super Joey, this can bring back special summon any Red-Eyes monster from the graveyard.


  • Relatively cheap. Both of essential cards are not from the card boxes. Possible to build without any SR/UR card from the card boxes.

How to use REBD combo deck

Get REBD in your hand

Start by either setting Blue Dragon Summoner or Crystal Seer to search for REBD or draw more cards. REBD in your hand will be used to fusion summon Meteor B. Dragon or send to the graveyard by the effect of Vanguard of the Dragon.

Special summon REBD

Red-Eyes B. Dragon (REBD) requires two tributes to be normal summoned. You can however ignore the cost by special summoning it using support cards. If you have Black Dragon's Chick in your hand, you can use it to special summon REBD from your hand.

If you have Red-Eyes Spirit instead, then you can fusion summon Meteor B. Dragon and special summon REBD from the graveyard, or save it for a surprise attack later.

Control the board

Set a Champion's Vigilance once you get REBD on the field. It negates the activation of any spell/trap/monster effect. If you think your opponent has Mirror Wall, you can wait till get this card.

Meteor Dragon Red-Eyes Impact is a Gemini monster. The effect of it can prevent other "Red-Eyes" monster from getting destroyed. Note that you have to summon it twice to use the effect, and the effect cannot defend "Red-Eyes" monster from Cards that has the effect retruning a monster to hand like Gale Lizard, Hane-Hane, and Guardian Statue.

Send REBD to the graveyard

Vanguard of the Dragon is a great UR card from the Card Trader. Using the effect of this monster, you can discard REBD from your hand whenever you want, and the monster gains additional 300 ATK.

Cost Down requires you discard 1 hand to activate, and the effect lowers the level of your monster.

Fusion monsters

Meteor B. Dragon and B. Skull Dragon are fusion monsters that require REBD as one of the fusion materials.

After fusion summonning those high ATK monsters, special summon REBD used as a fusion material from the graveyard using Red-Eyes Spirit.

Useful cards

Meteor Dragon Red-Eyes Impact
Red-Eyes Meteor Dragon
It might be slow to pull the effect of this monster since you'll be needing to tribute summon it and normal summon it the next turn, however, it can be a great help for this deck.
The Shallow Grave
The Shallow Grave
Revive one of your monster like Black Dragon's Chick to special summon another 1 Red-Eyes B. Dragon.
Red-Eyes Spirit
Red-Eyes Spirit
A great support card for this deck having a copy of it might give you a back up incase one of your Red-Eyes B. Dragon has been destroyed.
Stamping Destruction
Stamping Destruction
Since the deck consists of mostly Dragon type monster, this card is a great removal for any spell/trap card on your opponent's side of the field, not to mention a 500 effect damage.
Mirror Wall
Mirror Wall
Always good in any deck to either destroy your opponent's monster or survive.
B. Skull Dragon
B. Skull Dragon
Easier to obtain compared to Meteor B. Has lower attack but higher defense.
Summoned Skull
Summoned Skull
You can put this together with some meteor dragon to make it more fusion oriented instead.

I tried this deck and it seems promising. The key is graveyard play and use Vigilance to shut down opponent.

Here's a f2p version I threw together, Speed is key for Red-Eyes, because there are stronger monsters you could tribute summon, like Blue-Eyes. That's why multiple Chick is preferable.

I think red-eyes meteor dragon is a bad card. Why to use it vanguared is much better.

Champion's vigilance is a fantastic card so it's obviously better to have 3 if you have them. If you don't you can make do with a number of other utility cards that are useful in multiple situations e.g. Enemy controller, or you could potentially use overwhelm which is a crappier champion's vigilance. Still isn't gonna be as competitive without 3 vigilance though, sorry

That's cool the trap is definitely the best card in the event. Do you have multiple champion's vigilance? That's probably preferable to the Gemini monster in my opinion, that thing is pretty impractical for real play due to its low attack and need to be tribute + Gemini summoned. Try and grab another chick if you can as well, it isn't usually too many gems to get SR cards from a mini-box

So when is the decklist going to be updated to add the new card from the trader?

my (ideal) version
skill set to 'switcheroo'

3 chick
3 B. D. Summoner
2 Sphere Kuriboh (or 1)
1 Cave Dragon
2 twin headed behemoth
2/3 stamping destruction (I know)
2 champion's vigilance

1 windstorm of etaqua
1 mirror wall
<< Anonymous(my (ideal) version )

twister and adhesion trap hole instead of windstorm and mirror wall, windstorm really depends on if you have 0/1 kuriboh or 2.

Alternative card against E.Con Riryoku Field Don't discard anything!

I use 3 red eyes, 2 black chicks, 3 summoner, 3 vermin, 1 windstorm, 1 kuribo, 2 stray lambs, 1 double coston, 1 mystic box, 2 champs vigilance, 1 wingbeat, 1 magic drain, dont have the econs ( not one... yet ) so the kuribo and windstorm are fine, the issue with decks like these nowadays are dead draws and relinquished, now that the pegasus event has given all the newer players 2 relinquished and the older players a third its all you see, throwing in a possessed dark soul would not be a bad idea and you need really good draw luck which will be even harder to achieve once switcheroo gets nerfed so personally i would go with balance, its a good fun deck but definitely not platinum or KOG material, unless you have 3 econs that is ;)

Even with 3 econs it's not a plat deck

I wish I have more glossy card lol btw this deck rule!
geez that can be stupid powerful , lets you basically drop any 7 star without a tribute
Well, the labyrinth wall does have 3000 defense, so it makes for a good defense card
