  • No specific skill is required to use this deck, making it a good choice for skill farming.
  • If you want to use a skill, it is best to use skills that boost consistency like Restart or Destiny Draw. Draw Sense: Dark is another option to draw into Kiseitai.
  • The setup you want to have is 2 Kiseitai equipped to a single monster boosted by multiple Massivemorphs.
  • The best monster to Massivemorph is the one equipped with Battleguard Rage.
  • Set Kiseitai to let Tristan's Massivemorphed monster attack it, equipping them with Kiseitai.
  • Use all your Massivemorphs on a single monster Tristan controls, the one equipped with Kiseitai.
  • If you manage to set this up you will be able to heal more every turn than Tristan can damage you.
  • Use Impenetrable Attack and Draining Shield to stall.
  • Use Good Goblin Housekeeping and Jar of Greed to draw into your deck.
  • On your final turn, summon Cosmic Compass and special summon 2 tokens. Use Double summon to tribute into The Winged Dragon of Ra and give all but 100 of your LP to increase his attack.
  • Remember to use Anti-Magic Arrow to avoid Tristan's Battleguard Howling

Power of the Tributed
When you sucessfully Tributed Summon "The Winged of Ra", its ATK will becomes the sum of the ATK of the Tirbuted Monsters, and its DEF will becomes the sum of the Tributed Monsters.

  • When facing against Tristan the biggest problem is Battleguard Howling which could burn you for a lot of LP, and Battleguard Rage which boosts his monsters above yours.
  • When you have used up all the Sylvan Marshalleafs and Sylvan Komushrooms in your deck, you will have no way to deal with Battleguard Rage. So recycle them back to deck with Sylvan Lotuswain or Sylvan Guardioak. You only need to do this when Battleguard Rage is not in the graveyard yet, and keep in mind Tristan only has 1 copy of Battleguard Rage and Battleguard Howling each.

Elements Unite!
You will start the duel with 500 Life Points and your starting hand will be 1 card, which is "Gate Guardian". In addition, you will start the Duel with Suijin, Kazejin, and Sanga of the Thunder on the side of your field. Their effects are negated and they cannot attack as long as they are face-up on the field.

  • Special summon Gate Guardian immediately. He will be enough to stall the entire duel.
  • You can attack Tristan's monsters, but do not attack face-up attack position monsters while Tristan has a set spell/trap card. The set card could be Battleguard Howling and cause you to lose the duel.
  • Activate Sogen to boost Gate Guardian's attack.
  • Equip Wonder Wand to Gravekeeper's Recruiter and activate it's effect to thin your deck by 3 cards. It is best to search another Gravekeeper's Recruiter with his effect if possible.
  • Shard of Greed, Good Goblin Housekeeping, and Jar of Greed is also used to help you thin your deck.
  • During your final turn, Normal summon Gravekeeper's Vassal and then special summon Caligo Claw Crow. Use Secret Pass to the Treasures and 2 Union Attack on Gravekeeper's Vassal.

  • Search out The Unhappy Girl with Rai-Mei.
  • Use Unhappy Girl to stall the duel by using her to attack into Tristan's monsters. You will not recieve any damage because of Holy Guard and Tristan's monster would not be able to attack or change battle position because of Unhappy Girl.
  • Since Holy Guard only protects your LP during your turn, you should activate Spirit Barrier to protect yourself in case Tristan attacks Unhappy Girl.
  • Set Crystal Seer to excavate your deck when she is flipped face-up. If all of Tristan's monsters cannot attack, you can flip Crystal Seer face-up yourself to activate her effect then crash her into a monster to get rid of her.
  • During your final turn if you have 2 Unhappy Girls, you can tribute one of them into UFOroid to make room for your fusion monster.
  • Fusion summon UFOroid Fighter using Gate Guardian and UFOroid and then use Double Summon to bring out Gravekeeper's Vassal.

Draw Sense: Light
Can be used each time your Life Points decrase by 1500. In the Draw Phase, instead of doing a normal draw, draw a random Light attribute monster.

  • Use Draw Sense: Light to search out Mythical Beast Cerberus from your deck.
  • Only use your spell cards when Cerberus is on the field. This is to maximize the attack Cerberus is able to gain when you use spell cards.
  • Use Shard of Greed to draw into your deck.
  • Use Armor Ninjitsu Art of Alchemy to send a face-up Ninjitsu Art Notebook to the graveyard and draw 2 cards.
  • Use Magical Mallet to return last turn cards to the deck and draw new cards.
  • Enemy Controller and Super Rush Headlong are defensive cards, use them when Tristan tries to attack your Cerberus with a powerful monster. In addition Cerberus will also gain attack since both of these defensive cards are spell cards.

Voltic Kong could have possible potential for a mill deck. Doubtful, but you never know.

Cloudian/Ra works massively against Tristan (and most LDs), only lost maybe 3 times out of 20 due to bad hands.

Also, Millennium Shield + Wild LV5 will be the next crazy farming deck. Just watch~

Yu-Jo and Unity have potential to be played with that field that doubles damage if you block and attack with a defense card as big shield garna.
I'm seeing some other great decks here, all defense based. You just need to use your brain a little.

For those who don't have Shard of Greed
Totally f2p deck
Note: by discarding blue dragon summoner equiped with wand, you'll be able to draw gemini elf (blue dragon summoner's effect). So, you will draw 3 cards in 1 turn :)

Yu-Gi-Oh duel links doesn't use Google play to save its data, it uses KONAMI id. So, if you didn't log in to KONAMI before you delete Yu-Gi-Oh data, you cannot retrieve the data anymore.
