Notes

  • There are 2 setups you can make to stall the game. Legendary Ocean, Legendary Fisherman, and Spririt Barrier. Or Unhappy Girl, Spirit Barrier. In both cases Spirit Barrier is key, so use restart to try and get it.
  • If you chose to use Unhappy Girl and Spirit Barrier to stall, tribute Unhappy Girl into The Legendary Fisherman when you get A Legendary Ocean.
  • Shard of Greed helps you draw into your combos and let you deck out quicker than Zane.
  • Stall turns with Curse of Anubis and Windstorm of Etaqua.
  • For this farm you will need to use 3 Union Attack on Gravekeeper Vassal because of The Legendary Fisherman's low attack, even when you control 2 of them.

  • A more budget friendly deck and more consistent version than the Nimbusman Cloudian deck. Usable if you managed to get Ra from the previous event.
  • Use the skill restart to make sure that you get either Sanctuary or Spirit Barrier to your starting hand.
  • Sheep Cloud to stall if you don't get the necessary stall cards.
  • Summon Storm Dragon and Turbulence once you have Sanctuary/Spirit Barrier, and keep summoning until you have 3 monsters.
  • Pass the turns until your last turn, activating Golden Ladybug every turn when you can.
  • Activate Pot of Benevolence if Zane has lower cards than you, and to also return his LIGHT monsters so he doesn't summon Lightray Daedalus.
  • On the last turn, summon Ra and increase his attack using your LP and attack into his lowest attack attack-position monsters.

Notes

  • Using the skill Reinforcements (from Aster), you are guaranteed to draw Destiny HERO - Plasma once you take 1800 damage.
  • Use your lower level monsters to defend/stall/deck-thinning until you can get compass and able use your skill.
  • Ideally, you will want to summon Plasma when Zane summons his fusion monster so that your plasma has high attack. But if you can't, then try to go for at least his Cyber Dragon but you will have to be careful of his Rare Metalmorph.
  • You will still need some protection even after you summon plasma, so be sure to set your defensive 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.
  • If you have your final combo cards already in your hand, you can consider ending the duel before you get to 0 cards. This is if you run out of defensive spell/trap cards and are unsure if Zane can go over your Plasma.

Notes

  • Some of the Cloudian monsters can't be destroyed by battle. Pair that up with The Sanctuary in the Sky, or Spirit Barrier and you can essentially stall the duel until you run out of cards.
  • Use the skill Restart to help with getting either Sanctuary, or Spirit Barrier in your starting hand.
  • Once you have Sanctuary/Spirit Barrier, you can already tribute summon for Cloudian - Nimbusman and start stacking Fog Counters on it.
  • You can stack fog counter by using Cloudian - Ghost Fog and attack into Zane's high level monster(s), or by using Cloudian - Storm Dragon. Make sure to stack them all on just one of your monster.
  • Keep using Pot of Benevolence to return Zane's LIGHT monsters back to his deck. This is to prevent him from summoning Lightray Daedalus and destroying your monsters.
  • On your last turn, tribute summon Cloudian - Nimbusman (if you haven't already) and equip him with Shooting Star Bow - Ceal to attack directly to win the game. You will need at least 20 Fog Counters on the field, including from itself, to be able to deal 10,000 damage after equipped with Ceal.

What are you confused about? He used Power Bond if you were confused by the 8000 ATK Cyber End

Paladin deck is good, but if you don't take it soon...

It's a stupid question probably, but how do I use Yugi Muto against Zane? Each time I switch over to GX it changes from Yugi to Chazz, my current equipped GX character

you cant. for roaming legendaries, you can only use the chars from their world. yugi would only usable if zane was a gate LD.

I tried the updated Cerberus deck twice but both times Zane killed himself after using Power Bond.

Yea that kinda sucks but it can happen in every farming deck for him. Doesn't happen that often though in my experience.

Don't use Plasma deck. Never got it to work because I would either not have triggered Reinforcements in time or don't have Cosmic Compass to summon Plasma.

I've been having a bit of success with it but it's mostly +6000 points, rarely gets me +7000, and the drop rate is terrible on top of that.

Ra Cloudian Farm is f*cking shit. I keep on drawing monsters and no Spirit Barrier or Sanctuary. And that's even when Restarting. this deck. Piece of shit!

You can add another sanctuary instead one of the bugs to improve the chance and go for 7k victory

Dark Paladin is not consistent at all. (0/4)

It depends on your build and active skill. The Posted deck is quite inconsistent, but there are other builds that have higher win ratios.

It has a 90% success rate for me though. Perhaps your build needs fixing or your luck is bad(like mine).

Amazons work assuming you can get both Queen and Spirit Barrier up quick before he Power Bonds or gets Twin Cyber out.
