I wish they'd redo the early LDs' Decks. Some of them are just unacceptably bad now. (Kaiba, Joey, Mako, Rex and Odion for example.) The Level 30 GX LD's have better decks than each of the characters I mentioned. (Heck, I'd say Bastion's Level 20 deck is better than most of those.)

I'm fine with no changes, I don't want farming to get even more tedious than it already is, thank you

We don't have any LD's that are practically ungrindable yet, there's no reason to think that would happen with a revamp of the older LD's. There is no excuse for a Level 40 Legendary Duelist to use a card like Battle Steer or Masaki the Legendary Swordsman.

Yubel Terror Deck works fine for Joey lvl 40:
Skill: My Name is Yubel
3x Yubel
1x Yubel - Terror Incarnate
1x Yubel - The Ultimate Nightmare
3x Planet Pathfinder
3x Fire King Avatar Yaksha
3x Fire King Island
2x Union Attack
1x Secret Path to the Treasures
1x The Calculator
1x Gravekeeper's Vassal
1x Double Summon

Strategy: You either use FK Island or Monster effect to destroy Yubel in your Hand to SS Terror Incarnate. After that he can't do anything(he don't wizard it) and just Fusion Summon here and there his 2 Fusion Monsters.
It gives over 7k DA, with enough glossy/prismatic/destroyed Monster it gives 8k+.
Up to 2 Sangan can be used as substitute for 2 Planet Pathfinder(to search it out/Yubel/other cards) and Double Summon with Photon Lead(for Calculator).
When you don't have to combo for Yubel Destruction, either summon a FK in Attack Position or set(if you have) a Sangan. He don't attack if a) no 1800+ beater b) no dice or c) no Fusion + another 1800 beater.

With Sylvan being dead, Aromage-Ra is the better choice now.

I wish they only apply the nerfs on PvP though.
Sylvan could've been everything you want but it was great for farming.

True. I wouldn't mind, and in fact supports, the idea that the banlist should be only for PVP.
You can farm him with elements unite, either by summoning GG or not.

Only summon GG if he has three face up cards on the field that are not time wizard. This doesn't happen all the time, however.

Option 2, is if he has two face up monsters and one face down, you can just keep the three guardians on the field, but I recommend putting kazejin in defense as his thousand dragon + graceful dice could damage you over 500hp. Always keep Sanga and Suijin in attack. I highly recommend THTD as a fusion because it thins your deck and can provide enough points if you're using the non Union attack method. I can get 7000-8000 every time. I just use my basic farming deck, but you should be able to customize to your preferences.

He won't use Time wizard on the three guardians, oddly enough. I'm guessing the AI knows they can't attack, because Joey kept his monsters in attack until I summoned THTD. Riryoku + martyr is enough to get a direct piranha attack over 9999

Just confirming it works. My decks a little different. I use H-Heated Heart because after 120ish packs of Ultimate rising I haven't gotten a single passage but it still gets the job done. Forced ceasefire isn't supposed to be used but I was farming bastion and was too lazy to take them out.

Wait how are you using the white elephant’s bone if you don’t summon GG
"House of Adhesive Tape"

can I replace this?

Yes, with Abyssal Designator. Declare "Light, Spellcaster" and he'll be forced to throw a Time Wizard out

If you had the good fortune to score House of Adhesive Tape off a wandering Yami Bakura, it'd work on Time Wizard too, since it has 400 DEF.

And HoAT would have the added advantage of also being usable on M-Warrior #1 if you happen to use your deck on Joey level 20 or 30.

(assuming you meant "can I replace Eatgaboon with this?")
100% 8000+ Farm Deck
If you have Paradox Bros. Ignore all other deck suggestions. Just run elements unite and any Secret Passage combo to win guaranteed.

Secret: Don't summon gate guardian til last turn. He won't Time Wizard the Sui, Sanga, and Kaze.

I attached the deck I use. Some draw cards are suboptimal because this is just my boring farm deck (e.g. Rex, Weevil) that uses White Elephant's Gift and Common Charity

your deck doesnt work, because Joey call Milenar Dragon and it has 2400 atak, can destroy one of three gods and 🔥 the gate guardian summon

U can allow him to 🔥 one of them and then the other two can double union attack the vassal to victory
actually, if you haven't enough of eatgabond, you can change with house of adhesive tap
My decks a little pricey but it really works I'm still tryna figure out how the hell y'all get his attack to like 14000 lol

If you want to get his attack higher, take out some of the life gain, you don't need it, you want to get the comeback victory bonus. But you can try to run a copy or two of murmur in the forest to bounce and reuse your field spell for extra counters
