Labyrinth Builder
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.

Notes

  • 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.

Notes

  • 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.

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.

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.

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.

i use this combo, set one gandora when you got 1 card on top of your deck. Pro: you can destroy any thing that may break your combo, it annihilates traps, insta spells etc. your assestment will be more than 9000, because you may eternal activates gandora effect, cause Northwenko cant be destroyed if you targeted gandora when ritual summon her. Con: destroy 7 cards on the field.

...cont... and you dont need 2 Gandora, but need one high to ritual Northwenko.

Mai Valentine's deck changes. I just had a duel where she had 3 AMAZONESS VILLAGES!
I seriously cannot beat her and I am having a very hard time beating Mai Valentine. Like an extremely hard time. I do not have the cards for those decks for I am a new duelist and I started three weeks ago. I rarely win and I am trying to get the two SR Harpie cards, but it seems I have gotten every card EXCEPT, the Harpie cards. I need some serious help.
<< Anonymous(Infuriated!)

Neither of the SR Harpie cards she drops are worth using anyway, so if that's all you're after, I'd steer clear of her anyway. It's only really worth grinding her if you want to run Amazoness.

You can use Amazoness Swords Woman against Marik Lvl. 50. It's very effective.

I hate this! It doesn't matter what I do. Smaller deck with lots of spell removal/prevention almost NEVER works because I keep getting crappy hands with her! I guess I should use Balance, because she almost ALWAYS gets both the village and fighting spirit on the first turn to get a crapload of Amazons on the field who keep coming back to eff me up! Why the hell is she so much harder than the other LDS!? I'm sorry, but I just needed to rant.
<< Anonymous(Farm Better)

Thanks. I tried farming her with a Blue-eyes deck today. Only to get...another Harpy Lady Phoenix Formation. So I guess I might as well try something different and just hope that she gives me some Amazoness rainbow packs for once. XD At least I am almost done now due to the tickets.

Of course I already know that. Joey is the one who has Metalmorph as a drop reward, not Mai. I want the Amazoness cards because I want to try using an Amazoness deck. Besides, I don't need anymore Metalmorphs. I already have three of them.

Thanks for suggesting.
I am going to go with (2) gift of the martyr (1) riryoku.
but seriously what is use of piranha army in a farming deck.

piranha is for the 10k damage. summon piranha, use pass, use riryoku, play gift or 2 and attack with double combat damage.

I just tried a ritual deck, I keep pulling the wrong cards.

I start a hand with two synthesis ritual spells but two hungry burger ritual monster cards... keep getting the wrong cards
<< Anonymous(PK)

Don't run Hungry Burger: Lycanthrope ONLY. Then throw in some Judge Mans/Meteor Dragons (3 total in any amount), Blue Dragon Summoners (I run 2), Iron Blacksmith Kotetsu's (2 as well), and of course whatever amount you have of the Ritual searchers (I only have 1 each and it still works). That leaves 2 more spots, Windstorm of Etaqua + something else is what I'd do.

Run the deck with an ability that allows you to swap hand cards. Switcheroo is best, but Restart is also an option.

i think its a good idea to remove the LD from the gate. i would suggest removing their spawns as well, we should only be able to get cards through booster packs. Also remove the card trader. :)

Might as well remove pvp ticket reward, unlock event and roaming event. So that we can only getting cards from booster pack! sweeeet!! :)

Ojamas work flawlessly. Don't use land of the ojamas skill. Just put ojama country in the deck. Last turn, put king and knight in attack position, activate field spell, vassal, unionn att, and ama.

Not entirely sure how consistent it is but it does work if you can get either of the fusion out before Mai gets a full field of monsters. I got 7,000-7,500 duel score with this so far.

Using Tea with Holy guard skill.3 Unhappy girl and keep attacking his monster, 3 of Rai-Mai to pull out Unhappy girls more easily and 3 bubonic mumin to fun your deck and good defensive cards. Other 11 cards to finish Mai depend on you
Valencia
I honestly believe that she is the hardest LD to beat. I usually have to cram more spell/trap removal into my deck just to start winning. Worse than Kaiba, because I'm not just worrying about one card, but all of those annoying Amazoness things like willpower and that stupid village! And it is taking forever to get some of her cards! Die, Mai!

She's too easy. Just use labyrinth builder. She can't do anything about it. Just don't attack her monsters or she will mill her self out.

I'm too stubborn to use any type of deck that I don't want to. Right now, I am just using a basic, boring Kaiba-dragon beatdown deck that is juiced up with a lot of ultra and super rare spell/trap cards. My new deck cannot be a reality just yet. I will admit that Mai sometimes ends up basically killing herself with chain master if she doesn't have a lot of other stuff at the same time.

In case people still looking for easy fa deck, you can easily farm her with Labyrinth Buider.

Ironically, you need to farm to get Lab Builder. Use Elements unite instead because she doesn't have anything against it at lvl 40.

Element united's deck is very bad if you don't recover your life point as fast as posible you could lost with amazoness archer since there are amazoness village it'll be useless to destroy her monster.
