Decks to farm Joey Lvl 40

Cerberus deck (4,000 - 5,000)


Using the usual "High Score Cerberus" deck but added in some cards to counter Time Wizard. Abyssal Designator can destroy Time Wizard before it shows up by selecting Light, Spellcaster. Make sure to set a Eatgaboon so it can destroy Time Wizard when/if it shows up.

Example deck

Level 40 Joey's deck



  • Two fusion monsters

    Joey's ace cards in the deck are two fusion monsters: Flame Swordman and Thousand Dragon, and Thousand Dragon has the highest ATK at 2400 along the cards Joey uses.
  • Time Wizard and Gearfried

    The effect of Time Wizard can destroy all monsters you control and Gearfried's 1800 ATK is high as a level 4 monster.

Annoying cards

CardEffect Summary
Gearfried the Iron Knight
Gearfried the Iron Knight
  • 1800ATK is very high as a low level monster in current card pool, and your Axe Raider cannot defeat it.
Time Wizard
Time Wizard
  • The effect may destroy all your monsters like Raigeki, although that's all about luck.
Thousand Dragon
Thousand Dragon
  • 2400ATK is very high. You will use Wonder Balloon, equips spells, or Order to Charge to defeat it.

How to defeat Joey's deck


  • Use cards help your monster to beat Thousand Dragon

    Order to Charge works very well to remove the high ATK monster, and Wonder Balloon can decrease the ATK of the monster significantly.
  • Joey doesn't use Spell/Trap removal

    Since Joey do not have cards to destroy Spell/Trap cards, your Wonder Balloon and equips spells are never destroyed.

If you don't have that Eatgaboon card, Use Ready for intercepting - flip time wizard facedown before his activation.

I can't successfully farm Joey. So many things can go wrong. Usually he doesn't do over 1800 damage, so you have to take another turn of attacks and lose. Even when I have Enchanted Javelin, he activates Graceful Dice and gets enough attack to finish me. Sometimes he goes the other way and not only gets over 1800, but over 4000 on his first turn. Even when I get my Cerberus on the field, it usually dies to Time Wizard. Even with 3 Abyss Designators and 3 Eatgaboon, Joey will draw his 1st Time Wizard before I draw my first Eatgaboon. I'm sitting at about 25% success.

If your starting hand contains one of these, and not Cerberus, play or set it anyway (in order of importance): golden apples, enchanted javelin, enemy controller, shard of greed, hidden spellbook. Wonder balloons and sword of deep seated is a loop of attack weakening.

This deck no longer works unless you put a riryoku field trap card in to stop his block attack, otherwise Cerberus is getting destroyed

Someone please change the deck list. He uses 2-3 Axe Warrior now. Difficult to farm with him coz of 1700 atk power dmg. Can't activate skill if you dont reach 1800 damage.
anoymous 14days ago
So I found out that Joey won't use Time Wizard vs Unhappy Girl. So using Vassal + Union attack I managed to pull this off no prob.

His lv40 decl has changed to have ax raider

Apparently there is a bug with Joey's cards...
anonymous 15days ago
Exactly what I said below. Plus when he has this on field and activates spell, trap or monster effect, you aren't given the opportunity to interact.
anonymous 16days ago
LOL! I just tried to farm him (Cerberus). Anytime he summoned Gearfried the Iron Knight, it showed the card as 0 ATK/0 DEF without name on it. I had my Eatgaboon Set for his last Timewizard. Last Turn, Cerberus at 9k ATK, he flip summons his glitched Gearfried, then normaled his Time Wizard and I didn't get the chance to activate my Gaboon, nor did it do the "effect activating"-bling (don#t know how to describe, you know what I mean) but there was just the coin (in the same second it summoned). Pure luck it wasn't heads.

I use this dino deck. I dont use abyssal designator cz i want 'card on the brink' duel assessment

To get over 9999 over dmg use this step on the last step battle :
Ritual summon Cu Chulainn and use riryoku on BEWD to Cu Chulainn. Active order to charge on BEWD to kill enemy monster card
Then use Cu Chulainn skill to BEWD and use another riryoku on your dino to Cu Chulainn again.
Then last use tree ritual weapon on him

Low LP: 500
Cards on the Brink: 500
Destroy 10 monsters: 300
Over 5000 damage!: 1800
Perform a Tribute Summon: 300
Perform a Fusion summon: 400
Activate a spell: 100
Activate a trap: 100
Play glossy card: 100

Too few monsters. If the first 5 cards aren't dinosaurs you lose automatically.
daniloferr 22days ago
good job. do you win using the little fish to attack directly and uses riryoku to pump him up?
James 23days ago
Awesome deck dude. good job
anoymous 26days ago
you don't need to counter time wizard at all with eat gaboons and abyssal designator. just get draw sense wind and bring out spirit ryu and wait for him to fill his 3 monster zones. heck i dont even have javelins in my deck. i dont have riryoku so im using a deck with 3 ryu, 1 cerberus, 1 warrior dei grapher, 1 blue eyes, 1 of that burger ritual monster + bunch of glossy cards (around 10) and 2 prismatic cards. when his monster fields are full, summon cerberus when you get him and use a few magic cards to have a decent high enough attack. he will then switch his monsters to def position. hit him with your ryu to reduce your hp bit by bit and use draw sense wind again with the damage you sustained to draw another ryu and summon him. now you have 1 cerberus and 2 ryus. tribute summon BEWD when you get him using the 2 ryus. summon another ryu when you get him or not, up to you. at the last turn fusion summon ryu+warrior dei grapher then ritual summon the burger using the fusion as tribute to free up space. use all amgic cards to increase cerberus attack and use stop defense on the enemy with lowest attack to score at least 5k damage. easy 7-8k assessment points with comeback victory, low lp, cards on the brink, tribute summon, ritual summon, special summon, fusion summon, 1k+ point from glossy cards, 400 from prismatic, use trap card, use spell card, over 5k damage, etc

This doesn't work any more as of the newest update, AI will attack Ryu now
Maulwurf93 29days ago
With enough glossy Cards you can get up to 8000 points with this deck.
Maulwurf93 29days ago
And use the Bow on the enemy monster you switched to attack position and stole the atk with Riryoku so it gets 0 Atk (direct attack) and you don't lose 500 Atk.
Maulwurf93 29days ago
If you get hit by 1800 Dmg (Gearfried) you can easily get to 100LP by using Curry for enemy and then just playing as usual. But to get the over 9999 Dmg Assessment you have to get at least 600 Atk with Riryoku (Baby Dragon).

Haven't had a single eatgaboon drop at level 34 and don't have spirit ryu. Would running cat ear tribe be decent?
anoymous 30days ago
no because Joey uses equip spells so cat's won't work.
anoymous 31days ago
Using a cerberus deck :D

Sorry guys :(

I'm using this deck to farm joey
anoymous 31days ago
maybe his umi is glossy, extra damage doesnt matter is he can already achieve 10k
anoymous 1/1/1970
Why use umi? Yami is better it actually gives your cerberus 200 extra attack wander wand is a better equip card 500 attack or 1000 with effect use ceal equip for a direct attack
lucasdivo 1/1/1970
Best deck farm ⬇⬇⬇
