  • The goal is to setup a field with A Legendary Ocean, Sea Stealth Attack, and 2 Level 5 or higher WATER monsters.
  • Restart to get a better hand. It would be best to Restart to try getting Sea Stealth Attack since it cannot be searched.
  • Use Warrior of Atlantis to search A Legendary Ocean.
  • You can special summon Citadel Whale with his own effect to search out Sea Stealth Attack from your deck.
  • After you completed your setup Ishizu will not attack you even with her protected Gravekeeper's Visionary.
  • Do not attack Gravekeeper's Recruiter or Ishizu might deck out quicker. Do not attack face-down cards because they might be Gravekeeper's Recruiter.
  • If Ishizu reduces your attack with Gravekeeper's Oracle, you can banish those monsters during your turn with Sea Stealth Attack to return them to their original attack.
  • Use Murmur of the Forest to flip Gravekeeper's Priestess face-down and/or return Necrovalley to the hand, so that your Gravekeeper's Vassal does not go over the limit of Secret Pass.

  • Always try to start with at least 1 Array of Revealing Light and 1 Guardian Statue/Medusa Worm in your hand.
  • With Array of Revealing Light always declare Spellcaster-type.
  • The main idea is that Ishizu cannot attack with her Spellcaster-type monsters the turn she summons them. You will then use Guardian Statue/Medusa Worm to remove them from the field during your turn, and then flip your monster face-down again for reuse. Make sure you clear Ishizu's field every turn.
  • It is best to use Guardian Statue on Gravekeeper's Recruiter so that Ishizu Does not deck out first.
  • Use A Feint Plan, Windstorm of Etaqua, and Curse of Anubis to stall with your set monster.
  • It is best to always have 2 Flip monsters on the field.
  • On your final turn, flip any Guardian Statue/Medusa Worm you have and clear Ishizu's field. Acvtivate Temple of the Kings then tribute into Mythical Beast Serket.
  • With Temple of the King's effect, send it and Serket to the graveyard to special summon Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon.
  • Use Double Summon to summon Gravekeeper's Vassal.
  • Remember to use Anti-Magic Arrows during your final Battle Phase.

  • Never allow Ishizu declare an attack with Gravekeeper's Assailant on The Unhappy Girl.
  • If you put prefer winning legitimately to getting high score, replace Union Attack combo with other methods such as Riryoku to win.
  • Rai-Mei's effect may not work due to the effect of Necrovalley.

I use this deck, the key is to play Zombie World as soon as possible. This keeps her from Tribute Summoning Oracle, and the other two. Then Just destroy Necrovalley when it shows up, and try to floodgate Shaman and Visionary. If you have the "Posthumous Army" Skill, I'd replace planet pathfinder, Zombie world, and a twister/typhoon with 3 Field Barriers. I'd say this works about 70%, but maybe I've just been lucky.

Also Note, None of the Monsters other than REZD really matter; just use whatever strong Zombies you got.

Posthumous Army wouldn't work as it lasts for only 2 turns.
Anyway, using Zombie World to lockdown Ishizu is a great idea.

My bad, I meant "Dawn of the Brains," I guess; the skill that starts the match with Zombie World.
I've been trying to use a combination of Victory Viper XX03 + Gravity Blaster + Pulse Mines but the results have been half and half.

So, after GX update, all LD's lvl 10 can drop sr/ur cards, just as lvl 40, take a look. (Dunno about skills drops though)

actually, whichever you choose LV 10-40 the main rewards are the same but LV 40 is special due to she/ he only drops her/ his signature cards and in LV 10 is more difficult to obtain due to easy to beat. You can check while you tap/ click the LD's reward
You can use the D-Hero Plasma deck for her. Basically the same deck, you just need to suck up one of her 1500 Atk monsters (Assailant or Spear Soldier) or above and she usually can't get over that. The only problem is her field spell. I use Murmur of the Forest to flip one of her monsters face-down and return it to her hand. Otherwise you won't be able to summon Desert Twister (you can use Mega Cyber but that might mess with the Reinforcement skill) and/or need an alternative way to attack her directly/do enough piercing.

Screenshot of what I use.
(Draining Sh7eld because it's prismatic, not necessary and I unfortunately only have two Troop Dragons, hence i pack only two)
Gift exchange method not work by the way I am using 2.3.1v

Finally I got my second Chief, Regulation of Tribe is the best deck to farm her
