Since Spirit Ryu has a similar interaction Cat's Ear Tribe against CPUs, this deck is mostly used in the same way. Summon the Spirit Ryu early on from either your starting hand or get attacked and use "Draw Sense: Wind" skill and stall out the turns, then tribute, fusion and ritual summon when you are close to to running out of cards or out of cards.

How to defeat Ishizu's deck


  • Destroy Necrovalley

    By removing the field spell card from the field, you can get Ishizu's grevekeeper's monsters to become non-effect monsters.
  • Use cards effective against Spellcaster-Type monsters

    Since Gravekeeper's monsters are basically spellcaster-type, cards that have effect to counter spellcaster-type monsters will work very well.

I've tried this deck several times and ive never made it past turn 4. Spirit Ryu gets pwned the moment necrovalley shows up on the field. What can i do differently than this deck list?

Hey KevvoLS, how are they giving the middle finger to people that have exploited their flaws? Be happy you had the opportunity to farm before they fixed it ya entitled jackass.
KevvoLS 3days ago
It used to work. Now It doesn't. Konami just gave the biggest middle finger to its players for exploiting a flaw in their system. Unfortunately, now you're back to a crap shoot for beating the LDs. It makes me upset because I almost had mai to level 30 using that flaw. Oh well. Hopefully there will be better cards in the future that let you farm her. Right now you're outta luck .
