How to farm Lvl 40

Cerberus deck (6,000 - 7,000)

Use the usual High Score Cerberus deck but with a different playstile to go against Mai at lvl 40. It's important to not get your LP low until the last turn, this is because Mai has Amazoness Archer that can inflict effect damage to you by tributing her monsters, which she will do if it can already kill you. Use Gravity Axe - Grarl on your cerberus so she can't flip and activate archer's effect. Try to get your Cerberus' attack up fast since mai's amazoness monsters can be buffed from tiger's effect.

Amazoness archer breaks Cerberus. I had 3000 health and Cerberus on the field with 4000+ attack and Mai still summoned archer and used effect, then used affect two rounds later combined with willpower summon trap to deal 2400 damage and kill me. She even waited until she drew archer to summon a third monster. Lost me multiple matches when I didn't draw axe. AI too smart!!

Does anyone know how to farm for atleast 7000?
anoymous 10days ago
What just happened??? I was lucky and got Cerberus the first round and got up to 6400. Then her paladin did a kamikaze on him and she received over 4000 damage and died!!!

anoymous 24days ago
I dont understand how we use this deck... Shall we attack with Spirit Ryu or just keep it on the field? I tried this deck with Kaiba and he still attacked... Can someone please explain?
anoymous 24days ago
I wish I could see it before I waste 56 keys.
anoymous 24days ago
Oh, i got it... This deck is dead anymore.

The hardest LD atm

Kaiba is very easy to beat. Once he has 15 monster on his deck, you can use Conscription to take monsters from his deck and you also can use cloning (kaiba drops at all levels) when him put a monster on the field.
anoymous 26days ago
dunno why u said she is the hardest.. cerberus deck can take her out easily and still get high score. compared to kaiba... well, he is bad news ._.

The card counts are wrong, as a few people have pointed out.
Not all the monsters are x2. She has x3 Amazoness Sage. x3 Amazoness Village. And then only x1 of each trap.
Seer 13days ago
I can confirm this deck count; checked with Abyssal Designator. While running a single Cerberus deck (because I'm poor, that's why!), I found that the greatest obstacle was the Shamanism trap, which ruined my perfect setup and left me with only a defense position monster to kill at the last turn :(

I think mai is most harder LG.. coz amazones like army and every card have effect. I had tried to farm her many times but the best deck use more power attck and despel.. use ritual deck with 7-8 star mons realy good but u must summon ASAP.. lol

I wish they would switch to a 5 card format like the anime

Cup of Ace is the best replacment to Shard, but you really need Shard.
Mai is a babe 1/1/1970
do Cats Ear Tribe work in place of Spirit Ryu?
anoymous 26days ago
no. if mai has tiger out + any amazoness unit, then mai will attack the cats
anoymous 1/1/1970
What's the best replacement for shard of greed?
Hiki 1/1/1970
Well i am playing Cerberus Deck and it works perfectly fine
The Trick is to use one storm in your deck and use it before You enter your Battle Phase to destroy those traps.
My deck is at 100% winrate.
Hiki 22days ago
Thats a pretty easy question If the enemy hand is full (6 cards) they have to drop a card if they have 7 cards in their hand and if they are monster they will be counted as destroyes since they hit the graveyard.
anoymous 22days ago
the only way i can see that happening is dark designator two monsters. then when she uses willpower storm, uses another twister. thats 4 then attack 5th monster since no shooting bow ceal.
anoymous 22days ago
i believe he's asking how is it possible to destroy 5 monsters? attacking with cerberus is usually the very last thing you do. we dont have ragenki and other monster destroying magic cards.
anoymous 26days ago
That's not my question mr.obvious -_- I was saying how did he destroy 5 monsters if he was running a Cerberus
KennyGump 28days ago
Duh, destroy 5 monsters that the opponent have summoned or set, obviously. If you destroyed 10 monsters you get more points. Check it over the duel assessment page.
anoymous 28days ago
How did u destoy 5 monsters ???
Hiki 1/1/1970
I think i forgot to mention one important thing. Always keep your HP at 1300 or more cause archer..
Hiki 1/1/1970
Here is the Deck.
