  • A Cerberus deck can be used to farm Zane at level 40 (not doable against 30), and can be done quite fast.
  • Cards like Spell Power Grasp and Gather Your Mind can be useful for deck thinning and building up counters, but they can be easily replaced with other draw cards.
  • Set your Enemy Controller on the first turn if you get it. To make sure that Zane doesn't OTK you with his fusion monsters.
  • You will need to increase Cerberus' attack to at least more than 5,000 as soon as possible so that Zane can't get over your Cerberus with his Power Bond.
  • Blustering Winds early on to make it more difficult for Zane to get over your monster.
  • Use Cursed Bamboo Sword to return and re-equip another bamboo card to Cerberus each turn to get an easy spell counter.
  • Always set your Enemy Controller to use it defensively in case Zane summons a monster with high attack.
  • On the last turn, use Cursed Bamboo's effect to return another equipped bamboo to your hand so that Cerberus can attack directly.

Winged Dragon of Ra (7-8k)

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Lvl 40 Zane's deck



Hot New Top
When I was using Dark Paladin, Zane placed the Luminous Spark Field Spell face-down (so I could not negate and destroy it), special summoned Lightray Daedalus, then used its effect to destroy my DP!

Lesson learned: Sometimes the s****d AI can be a smarta** too lol.

Looking at the number of rares it seems like the drop rate was pretty good. You can't have 2 srs in every farm

I feel ya dude. I'm getting better stuff from lv 30. My lv 40 farms pretty much look like this each and every time. All 500 coin boxes. But on a slight silver lining, I have managed to farm a couple skills.

Nothing to be proud of? Sure many other people have gotten these cards, but that doesn't mean there easy to get. Aside from that its a very tedious task, why would they not want to show their accomplishments with others, it would also encourage other players to not give up.
