Your main goal with this deck is to win the duel as soon as possible by gathering all pieces of Exodia in your hand. Simple yet, quite difficult to pull off without some luck, or amazing search and draw power which this deck is all about.

How to use

Win condition

Your best bet to win, using this deck, is to gather all 5 pieces of Exodia in your hand. This would allow you to automatically win with Exodia's special duel winning effect.

Draw and Search

To gather all pieces of Exodia in your hand quickly from a 25 card deck (20 cards to register as a usable deck + 5 Exodia pieces added with the skill.) you will need plenty of draw and search power. Comboing Wonder Wand with Legion the Fiend Jester or Blue Dragon Summoner is excellent for both these reasons. Equip Wonder Wand to one of these monsters then send them to the graveyard with Wonder Wand's effect to draw 2 cards, this will also trigger the effect of Legion the Fiend Jester or Blue Dragon Summoner allowing you to search an Exodia Arm or Leg piece.(Keep in Mind that you cannot search out the Head piece of Exodia as it is an effect monster.)
Use Cards of the Red Stone to send a Red-Eyes monster from your hand to the graveyard and draw 2 cards, you also mill out a Red-Eyes monster, effectively thinning your deck.

Summon Red-Eyes

Red-Eyes B. Dragon and Red-Eyes Zombie Dragon in this deck are primarily used to stall, and also thin your deck when used with Cards of the Red Stone. Most times, you should not want to attack if you only have one Red-Eyes on the field and your opponent has a set spell/trap card. Only attack when you know it's safe, or when you are left with no other choice.

I know there are some people running a deck around this win condition.

How´s it holding up in the ranks (and how deep in the ladder are you?) and more specifically, what are you running to accomplish this condition.
Screenshots aren´t a must, but can help in the discussion.

Haven't played much yet and just at silver now. I run dark fiend deck with veil of darkness. Stall the game with Darknecrofear (might spell wrong) and a couple of kuribos. Not so efficient but just for fun. Can't set up veil of darkness means dead. Even after, would get stuck if draw into other veil/backup soldier/head pcs But that's kinda it, thrill to see if you get it going first or get crushed

I almost lost to one of these decks yesterday. How ironic that Mask of the Accursed helped save me. Either way, I just love the feeling of nervous anticipation I get everytime I see the Grandpa's Cards skill. It makes it so exciting!

Using kazejin alongside legion jester. Works pretty well since tributing legion jester activates its effect, so you don't have to depend on it getting destroyed by the opponent. Also kazejin's power and effect just stall the game even longer. You can also go on the offensive with kazejin if the opportunity arises.

Bubonic vermin is king for stall and self milling in this deck.

i found out a way to add exodia's head to your hand! use painful escape with normal monsters level 3 dark spellcaster and you can add is easily, use cristal seer too in order to draw 2 cards and then tribute it and you'll get an extra exodia piece :), make it kinda normal monster control with wonder wand and legion and summoner

Managed to get Exodia 3/6 times with this deck on legend rank,different capsule is important card to remove and add Exodia head because other parts can be added with Jester and Blue summoner,still don't have other dimensional capsule but will add it soon when I reach level 23 with Yugi

The problem with different dimension capsule is that once it is destroyed, the head of Exodia will be banished which will basically lose you the match with this deck.

yup but that's 2 turns you must survive,othervise it's hard to get head of exodia with other card effects ,only your draw luck

Instead of different dimension capsule I use deep diver to pull the head it's less risky and you can easily get around losing a draw because of all the draw power

"Hmmmm..." (Builds Exodia deck with card limit of 30+ Grandpa's Cards) "I'm gonna get destroyed." Then I discovered that... NO MILL DECK CAN STAND AGAINST ME!
