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.

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~
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.

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
the skill wont work anymore...LDs dont activate the card sent to them.

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.

How can this Deck have 3 "Windstorm of Etaquas" when you can only get one as a reward for leveling Mai to 25?

That's a wrong type, i think. Cause they only count one each trap card.

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

What a funny deck. Would love to try it, but too bad I only got 1 Card of Sanctity from Pegasus. :(

Its more funny if you gave them 'jam breeding machine' and 'xhing zen hu.
Is the bug gone from The Temple and Mystical beast?

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!
They made a typo with the mirror wall and windstorm. Besides that being able to have 3 windstorms would be so amazing, I love the card!

there are at least 2 more yugioh cards that are very similar to windstorm

one of them is better than windstorm i'd say because it flips them face down and then they are not allowed to change position by regular means after this effect takes place
How about the fact your missing 1 card? Namely secret passage??

Secret Passage isn't necessary when you can slaughter an attack-position monster.
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~
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.
