update 22/02/2017


This deck is made to farm LDs using Jam Breeding Machine, which you can give to your opponent using either Tea's "Surprise Present" skill, or Gift Exchange. It's effective for most LDs, as long as they can't destroy the spell.

Surprise Present
Select 1 card Set in your Spell & Trap Zone, and force it on your opponent. Only the player that activates this skill can view this card. This skill can only be used once per Duel.


How to use

Gifting Jams

Send a Jam Breeding Machine to your opponent by using Tea's "Surprise Present" skill, or Gift Exchange. The AI will always use it, preventing them from being able to summon other monsters in attack position. They can still summon 1 monster on the turn they activate the card though. Alternatively, you can bring more Gift Exchange and only 1 Jam Breeding Machine with more card draws if you want to use other characters without exclusive skills.

Destroying the monsters

Use the low level cards in your deck to destroy, or return your opponent's monsters. Destroying multiple monsters/Jams will give bonus points, but make sure that you don't attack the attack position Jams to deal any battle damage.

  • The Jams will only attack on the turn they are summoned, and only if you have no monsters on your field.

Preparation for the final attack

To increase Vassal's damage to more than 10,000, use Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon, and another monster with at least 400 attack. When you have 1 card left in your deck, destroy 1 of your opponent's monster, so that on your last turn, there will be a face-up attack position Jam.

Vassal and Union

You can summon Vassal once your opponent has activated the Jam Machine, and they don't have monster(s) with attack higher than your Vassal. This is so that even if you get Temple of the Kings, or Serket as the last card, you can still tribute summon on the last turn. If you destroyed a monster when you have 1 card left in your deck, there will be a attack position Jam on your last turn. Use double Union Attack on to your Vassal, and attack into the Jam.

Other useful cards

You can use other card drawing cards that you have, like Skelengel, or Dark Mimic LV1, etc.

Maybe so, but it's a nice way to take up a slot in pvp matches. Now if only there was a way to force opponents to activate the card during Téa's turn.

You can thank Konami purposely glitching Temple so that 1.7. can be a mandatory update and prevent Jam strategy to be dead. However, Serket by himself can actually blow through the GKs id you summon him early enough and protect him w/ say Divine Wrath/UltiProvidence.

Ugh, edits: The Jamming strategy is dead as of 1.7.1, use Serket's banish&buff effect to disrupt her strategy while protecting him with counters.

Says you Anon, its more fun that way~
How do you deal with necrovalley, it blocks spell reclamation.

And here we are, my own personal video on this deck. With the tiny chance of actually losing, there's also a smaller chance of getting anything below 8k if you play it right. Follow the video description for everything else & I still ty GameA for featuring this deck~

Jam breeding machine, easy to play, as shown in video great AP.
Yes. I approve this deck.
Good job!
Is the bug gone from The Temple and Mystical beast?

Not yet but they are "working on it"
the problem is when you use another LD beside Tea Gardner with 1 Jam Breeding Machine and 3 Gift Exchange in your deck, and your starting hand was all those cards -___-
Just don't forget to bring along Magical Mallet or Reload to bring back Jam Breeding Machine to deck.

What about giving localized tornado? Potentially have them discard their whole hand?

And this tragically ignored comment here.

Unfortunately, I've tried it a few times before & the AI never used it until their deck was almost out of cards in their deck. Tired w/ Xing Yu, they never ever used it. Even tho the Skill states that the opponent will never know what card it is, it seems like the AI ALWAYS knows what card it is.

(that's *Tried Xing Zhen Hu* btw...)
Which, ya know, makes you wonder why all of them, including Kaiba boi, are so eager to use Jam Breeding every time.

Probably because the AI doesnt have any specific programming for Jam Breeding Machine, thats why they just blindly use it without knowing its effect
How about the fact your missing 1 card? Namely secret passage??

Secret Passage isn't necessary when you can slaughter an attack-position monster.
Worst garbage win rate I've seen.

You either won't get the slime machine going or you won't get anything to clear his monsters. Rip keys.

Question is: Who's he?
Daemon Blitzkrieg
First and foremost; OMFG WTF?! D: Glad you guys liked the deck but damn, some credit, plz~ XD

2nd; I'm sure the price of deck is a concern but don't blame me, blame DL for locking the best cards for this strategy behind URs & SRs, also that there are so few of them.

Lastly; There are a LOT of filler cards in this deck (Seer, Jar, etc.) so change what you need for the LD in question. Imma see if I can record a video of how this deck works for just about anybody.
Remember: You still gonna need some luck, no guarantees until you seal the lockdown.
Alternative cards :
- vs Bandit Keith : Acid Rain (to 🔥 his machine monster)
- vs Ishizu : Ready for Intercepting (to deal with her gravekeeper monster)
- vs any LD : Unhappy Girl (useful for stalling, and it's cheap compared to Ladybug or Yomi Ship)
you forget one card : Secret Pass to the Treasure. But it's unnecessary if you attack the Jam token in attack position, though.

Actually, I left it out intentionally as it is not required and somewhat redundant in this build. The Jams are your real targets, Secret/Treasure is not needed here~
