Shuffle 2 cards from your hand into the Deck to create "Labyrinth Wall" on your side of the field. This skill can only be used once per Duel.

  • Gemini Elf can be replaced with Neo the Magical Swordsman or Mist Valley Watcher. Legion the Fiend Jester can be replaced by Blue Dragon Summoner.
  • Stall the entire game with Labyrinth Wall.
  • While stalling, try to deck out as quickly as possible with your draw effects.
  • Use Wonder Wand on your Gravekeeper's Recruiter or Blue Dragon Summoner, this way you can draw more cards from your deck and fetch another monster from your deck.
  • Use White Elephant's Gift to send Gemini Elf to your graveyard and draw 2 cards. Remember to keep at least 1 Gemini Elf in your hand for your final turn.
  • During you final turn, put Labyrinth Wall in attack position and then activate Shield and Sword before summoning Gemini Elf. Then use Double Summon to summon Gravekeeper's Vassal.
  • If you are using Mist Valley Watcher summon him first before using Shield and Sword.

  • Summon Ojama Knight or Ojama King as early as possible. They have enough defense to stall Mai's strongest monsters and with 0 attack Mai cannot use Amazoness Fighting Spirit to boost her attack.
  • After that just keep stalling until you deck out. Ojama Blue and Jar of Greed helps you get Ojamas out of your deck, King of the Swamp helps you search Polymerization in your deck. You can also use these cards to help fusion summon Ojama Knight earlier, if you have not yet.
  • During your final turn, have 2 face-up attack position Ojama Knight then use Ojama Country. Normal Summon Gravekeeper's Vassal then use Secret Pass to the Treasures and 2 Union Attack on him. Direct attack for over 9999 damage assessment.
  • Restart is only for consistency boosting. This deck can work without any skill, so you can use it for skill farming.

Who wants this skill?
This deck guarantees 8 rewards every time, unless you serious screw up. Summon the Labyrinth turn one and use the Rain of Mercy and Golden Ladybug cards to get at least 9500 LP. Use Cost Down to fill your board with 3 Labyrinth Walls in defense. Use 1 Pot of Benevolence to refill Mai's deck so she doesn't deck out. Use the remaining Pots to either stall to get your LP high enough or return an accidentally discarded piece of the last-turn combo into the deck. On the last turn, play Double Summon, Winged Dragon of Ra, Gravekeeper's Vassal, Secret Pass to the Treasure, and Union Attack.

You can replace Pot of Benevolence with card draw spells, but you risk losing them if Mai gets an Amazoness Sage out on the field. You can use other LP generation cards, but with this setup you only need Golden Ladybug to proc 5 times before you can use the 3 Rain of Mercy cards to reach 9500 LP.

2000 (win)
+1000 (100 LP left from Ra's effect)
+500 (using Ra)
+200 (Ra is prismatic)
+3000 (10k damage)
+400 (spells and tributes
+1000 (using a god card)
= 8100

My version:

1 The Winged Dragon of Ra
3 Skelengel [Ultimate Rising R]
2 Golden Ladybug (don't have 3)
3 Rai-Mei [Neo-Impact N]
2 Labyrinth Wall
3 Dian Keto the Cure Master [Tea SR reward]
1 Shooting Star Bow - Ceal [Neo-Impact SR]
2 Ancient Rules [level up Mokuba]
3 Solemn Wishes [Tea SR reward]

Pull ladybugs first with Rai-Mei. Drop Wishes after Mai fills board so she probably won't play Sage.

Leave a monster zone open for Mai to attack Rai-Mei and Skelengels. On the last turn, Ancient Rules out the third wall and tribute summon Ra. EZPZ.

Nope, a lot of characters are easier to farm than Mai.

Just to name a few: Yusei, Tea, Odion, Joey, Bastion, all are easier to farm than Mai.
Angry girl :V
How to farm? Fur Hire?

- Summon asap, Wiz, Sage FH in deffense position.
- While stalling, try to deck out as quickly as possible with your draw effects (Bladesman FH + FH monster).

- During you final turn, you need 2 Wiz, sage FH in attack position -> active S&S. Summon Vassal-> secret pass on vassal -> 2X Union attack -> direct attack.

Ultimate Ancient Gear Golem deck (99% winrate, 6-7k pts)

-Summon asap, stall long enough for Gravity blaster to boost his attack to well over 10k, (he deals damage through defense penetration)
-You need 11500 attack if she has a high defense amazon down, or 10300 attack if she has the paladin down
-Be mindful that you will be forced to attack the tiger if he's there, so if you have a gear beast or other golem in your hand, in the last turn you can summon it to destroy him and then attack the paladin if she's there (if it will help you get the 10k damage)

2x Ancient Gear Golem
1x King of the Swamp
1x Ancient Gear Box
3x Ancient Gear beasts
2x Ancient Gear Soldier
2x Gravity Blaster
2x EC
2x Polymerisation
1x Bolstering wind (get rid of the amazon that destroys a spell/trap, or use it in the last stage to get an extra boost)
1x Floodgate Trap hole
1x Mirror Wall
1x Impenetrable Defense
1x Draining Shield

if you can, save Floodgate trap hole for the amazon that destroys a spell/trap card when she's summoned

Labirynth Builder farm deck is reliable and easy to use.
But, has anyone else noticed that Mai will sometimes attack into the Wall for no reason and 🔥?

Really? That's odd. I only get her attacking it twice with Sage if I have set cards and then stopping once her LP are too low.

Alternatively you could replace two of the protection cards with a De-spell or two to get rid of her annoying spells.

P.p.s don't attack any of her monster, so she can't summon her archer (unless she have it before her field is full)
