Lvl 40 Legendary Duelists

Ways to deal the Damage!

There are many different types of ways to farm Legendary Duelists. Each strategy uses some tricks and specific cards, cards that not everyone might have, but they generally do the same thing, which is to deal at least more than 5,000 or 9,999 points of damage. You can go with one of the methods below if you have the required cards to use.

Union attack + Gravekeeper's Vassal

Union Attack + Gravekeeper's Vassal + Secret Pass to the Treasures + Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon

This method uses Gravekeeper's Vassal and Union Attack, a card that was only obtainable during the Yugi Muto appareance event, to increase Vassal's attack to more than 5,000 and deals effect damage for the extra bonus points.

Cú Chulainn the Awakened

Ritual Weapon + Cú Chulainn the Awakened + Secret Pass to the Treasures

Cú Chulainn the Awakened is a ritual monster card with an attack that can be easily increased through cards like Ritual Weapon and/or Blue-Eyes White Dragon. Although his effect only lasts for 1 turn, one turn is good enough since it can be used on the last turn to deal direct damage through Secret Pass to the Treasures, or by using your other monsters to clear the field of enemy monsters to go for a direct attack.

Mythical Beast Cerberus

Mythical Beast Cerberus + Stop Defense + Shooting Star Bow - Ceal + Riryoku

Easily the most simple deck to build and use to farm most Legendary Duelists. This method mainly revolves around using Mythical Beast Cerberus and 19 other spell cards. You can put any spell cards as long as one of them is either Stop Defense or Shooting Star Bow - Ceal. The skill Draw Sense: Low-Level or Sorcery Conduit is necessary for a Cerberus deck though.

Millennium Scorpion

Millennium Scorpion

Millennium Scorpion is a card that you can get from Odion level 30 or 40. It has the ability to increase it's attack endlessly by 500 each time it destroys enemy monster. It can also be summoned easily by using Insect Imitation through any level 4 monster, allowing you to potentially summon Millennium Scorpion on the first turn.

Piranha Army

Piranha Army + Millennium Scorpion + Riryoku

Since it's not possible for Millennium Scorpion to reach over 10,000 damage from his effect, Piranha Army can be used as the finishing card to deal direct damage. Increase it's attack by using cards like Riryoku or any other attack increasing cards, it will have double the effect because of Piranha Army's effect.

"Titan Showdown" skill

[Titan Showdown]
Whichever player has doulbe or more LP than the other takes double battle damage.
Rex
Rex

Similar to Piranha Army's effect, except with this skill, it allows any monster card to be able to deal double damage. Using cards that already have high attack like Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon will make it easier to reach over 10,000 damage. The rest of the deck can be filled with other stuff that can increase points like ritual summoning LP manipulation cards, etc.

Guardian Baou

Guardian Baou

This card can increase it's attack by 1,000 each time it destroys an enemy monster. It is much more trickier to use than Millennium Scorpion, since summoning this card requires an already face up Wicked-Breaking Flamberge - Baou on your side of the field that is equipped to a different monster, and Guardian Baou itself starts at a very low attack of 800. It needs a boost of help from other cards yet again to be able to deal with the first monster. If you manage to summon him early, getting to 10,000 attack will be easy, otherwise, use Riryoku to help increase his attack to reach the limit.

Piercing Moray + Jam Breeding Machine

Piercing Moray + Jam Breeding Machine

Piercing Moray has the ability to permanently increase his attack each turn by 700 attack. It requires a tribute of fish, sea serpent, or aqua-type monster, but with the help of Jam Breeding Machine, you won't have to keep summoning new monsters. You will need to summon the Piercing Moray first before the Jam Breeding Machine due to it's restriction.

This question has been posted by others' countless times: I've been reading online that it's better to farm lvl30 legendaries but is that true? Doesn't lvl40's have a higher drop rate for SR's? If I get 8.6k duel assessment every time is it worth me dueling lvl30's? The main reason is because keys are so damn hard to accumulate

Only for kaiba

Is there a fast was to get keys for the portal- because i aint got none :/

I found a new deck that actually has been getting me 6000+ points vs Kaiba in the past 4/5 duels. I FINALLY GOT MY ENEMY CONTROLLER ON THE LAST ONE!! If you're interested, check out the deck here:

You can now add Wrecker Panda to high score decks for those who have the card.
With Wrecker panda you can permantly increase panda's attack by using its card effect of sending cards on of your deck to the graveyard to gain permanant attack bonus. and then equip it with fairy meteor or ceal bow for 9999 damage. Last but not least replenish your lifepoints using solemn wishes.
You need about 23~25 cards in this deck to pull it off without decking out or sending wrong card to the graveyard.
This deck is a bit risky but if you manage to draw the magic and trap cards correctly you should be able to score average 6000 points.
Here's my deck example:
Mr. Moto 1days ago
Yes!! Finally someone posts a deck based on Wrecker Panda! This was the card I wanted more than anything when I saw its effect and I got one. I tried to make a deck designed especially for Panda but mine sucked. Thanks for the post, fellow duelist! :D
anoymous 21days ago
Screenshot of high score panda and equip spells in hand with solemn wishes on field.
anoymous 21days ago
After first stand by phase, every subsequent standby phase use panda's skill. Power panda up until you cant use anymore LP and then wait until you draw a LP recovery card before boosting again. My average boosted attack is about 10000 (with bad draws leading to 6000 at the worst case scenario). Like all decks, if you get back draw and bad card sent to graveyard, it is no guaranteed win.
anoymous 21days ago
Recommended skill for panda deck are draw sense: earth and draw sense: low level. I recommend running only 1 panda (for those who have two or more copies) to lesson the chance of panda sending another panda from deck ro graveyard, which is not good. The stand by phase right after you summon panda is important too, as the effect and monster level determines how strong panda can handle one turn.
anoymous 21days ago
I want to also mention to stack this deck with lots of high level monsters, such as lvl 8 and lvl 9 monsters and keep the ratio of high level monsters to spell/trap high. I would recommend running two equip with two solemn wishes (or two healing spells) in case you send one of them to graveyard due to bad draw/deck order.

Add Dreamsprite to the list of useful cards. AI will almost always attack it. It's super nice when combined with high attack monsters for farming the ai.

Is better farm LV 30 LD or LV 40? Cost/Benefit
john deere 31days ago
There's so much information going around about the new update to version 1.3. Here's some insights on how it really affects all decks involving Spirit Ryu and Cat's Ear Tribe. Hope it helps! https://redd.it/5vw3pa
Big Alberne 1/1/1970
Question: Level 40 Legendary Duelist rewards dont include the common drops, but dont seem to have a better rate for the rare cards. If youre farming for rare LD cards is it better to fight at level 30?
Curious 1/1/1970
How do you get level 40 legendary duelist?
Uncurious 1/1/1970
At Stage 30.
