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.

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

With enough glossy Cards you can get up to 8000 points with this deck.
Maulwurf93 5days 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 5days 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 6days ago
no because Joey uses equip spells so cat's won't work.

anoymous 7days ago
maybe his umi is glossy, extra damage doesnt matter is he can already achieve 10k
anoymous 8days ago
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

Uroucyon_GameA 10days ago
fixed! sorry about that.
anoymous 10days ago
I believe what was meant is Abyssal Designator, I have never seen Night Assailant in the game so it's weird a page about it even exists
anoymous 14days ago
so ridiculous im not getting a single sr cards from him. every time 7000+ points wins but not a single sr drop since farming him. crap droprate
anoymous 12days ago
I already defeated Weevil more than 20 times and the only SR I got is Grasshopper... I only want 3 cocoons.

Used to be able to say "same here", but when it comes to Joey, not anymore. Been playing since launch and never gotten Metalmorph, until a week ago or so, when I suddenly got 2 Metalmorphs in fairly quick succession. And let me tell you: having 3x Metalmorph is pretty awesome. I rushed to KoG like it was nothing.

All the times I've ever tried to farm joey he ALWAYS starts with a time wizard and I NEVER draw my trap and he ALWAYS guesses right!!!!!
Uroucyon_GameA 17days ago
use lower level monsters that can be easily replaced and summoned if they die, and use chain destruction if it helps.
anoymous 20days ago
his card shield and amp sword can help him destroy your cerberus right ? Since it switch your attack and your defense
Noonelive 20days ago
switch your original ATK and DEF. So your Cerberus still has enormous ATK
anoymous 21days ago
So if you guys are farming Pegasus event like everyone else, spell reproduction is a great card to use in Cerberus farm decks. Like if you're already at 100LP, and have LP changing cards (twister or curry), you can sacrifice them for a more useful one (shard of greed)

Maybe they can set up a rule where you can only use a maximum of 3 UR and 8 SR in a Deck.
Looks like there's finally a solution to farming Kaiba consistently AFTER the update!! I fou...
Good job at being consistent Kuriboh. 300 atk is awesome
