Decks to farm Lvl 40 LDs

For decks to farm each Legendary Duelist, check the links below.

Basic farming decks

Ways to deal the Damage!

Each farming deck 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

This method uses Gravekeeper's Vassal and Union Attack to increase Vassal's attack to more than 5,000 and deals effect damage for the extra bonus points. Having 2 Union Attack is always better than just using one to achieve "Over 9999 Damage". If you only managed to get 1 Union Attack, you can use Spell Reclamation to re-use it.

Cú Chulainn the Awakened

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.

Mythical Beast Cerberus

The most simple deck to build and use to farm most Legendary Duelists. This method mainly revolves around using Mythical Beast Cerberus and spell cards. You can put any spell cards as long as one of them is either Stop Defense or Shooting Star Bow - Ceal.

Millennium Scorpion

Millennium Scorpion 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.

Piranha Army

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.

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.

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.

Victory Viper

This card is available to purchase from the card trader. Victory Viper also has the ability to permanently increase its attack power indefinitely when it destroys an opponent's monster. You can also use the support spell Power Capsule to speed up the process.

Shattered Axe

With the card Shattered Axe, exclusively from Yugi Muto, you can combine it with Reverse Trap to have it be increased for a turn. Since it adds up every single turn, this will stack up faster compared to the other methods. Use either Enemy Controller + Shooting Star Bow - Ceal, or Jowls of Dark Demise to take control of that monster so you can direct attack. This only works if the equipped monster doesn't get tributed/destroyed, otherwise, you can use Tailor of the Fickle to equip to a different monster.

Megarock Dragon

Each rock monster in your graveyard is equal to 700 attack, so 15 rock monsters is enough to reach the highest damage bonus, giving you at least 5 cards in your deck that you can bring for support cards. You can also bring less rock monsters and use Gift of the Martyr to reach the threshold instead, using Des Kangaroo + The Dark - Hex-Sealed Fusion to get Master of Oz or through Mystical Beast of Serket. Also usable with Gravekeeper's Vassal and Union Attack.

Raging Mad Plants

Using a plant type deck, each plant monster in your graveyard will increase your plant monster's attack by 300. While it's lower than some of the attack increasing cards, if used with Talaya, Princess of Cherry Blossoms, you only need 8 plant monsters in the graveyard to reach over 5,000 attack. This can be used with Gravekeeper's Vassal and 2 Union Attack to reach over 10,000 damage.

"Titan Showdown" skill

Similar to Piranha Army's effect, Titan Showdown skill 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.

Fusion Deck for auto

The skill "Balance" is a drop skill that some characters can learn, although Mako can learn it by levelling up. This skill is used in the Two Fusion Dragons deck, which is a deck that's made to get a score of around 3,000 - 4,000 by using auto against Standard Duelists.

Ways to stall turns

The Unhappy Girl + Holy Guard

The Unhappy Girl can stall the duel with Tea's Holy Guard skill.

Angel O7

Most monsters LD uses are effect monsters. The angel will make most of their monsters ineffective since they can't use their abilities. Protect him with cards like Riryoku Field to make sure it doesn't get destroyed.

Dueling against lvl 30 or 40

If dueling level 40 Legendary Duelist is difficult for you due to lack of cards, you can always farm the LDs at level 30 instead. An easy deck to make is to simply put monsters with 1600 attack or higher level 4 monsters that are glossy and/or prismatic and perform some tribute/fusion/ritual summons for some extra scores. Being able to spam level 30 LDs with a consistent high score is better compared to getting only 3,000 or 4,000 score against level 40.

I use Aromages combined with Ra to farm most LDs.

Some LDs are just impossible to farm with Aromage-Ra deck, though. Aster, Alexis, and Chazz have insane Lv40 decks and seemingly rigged draws. Mai Valentine just keeps replacing her monsters thanks to her field spell, making it hard to clear her field. Zane is impossible regardless of which lv40 deck he is using, as Claw and Cannon lets him get over even boosted Rosemary, while the Cyber Dragon deck is extremely explosive in nature.

Impossible is not the right word. Come on, many of these lds exist long before those god cards come. How do u think people back then farmed? U need to think throughly.

Personally, I recommend Beast Rising with Mosaic Manticore. Though you'd need 2 other high ATKers for tributes for Manticore, after tributed, you can banish Manticore with Beast Rising when its effect activates during the stand-by phase to add its ATK to one other monster. Repeating this process with 2 other Manticore will bring the other monster's ATK to about 8500. If you can use BR's ef on the 2 revived monsters, it'll easily reach 10000. Problem is... it's hard to pull it off with backrow running LDs.

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:

Lol yeah same for me.
Most UR/SR cards I got were at losing battles
Juzo
Sylvan with 2 raging mad plants should be included here. Can reach 10k damage in less than 10 turns. Fastest and the most consistent way to farm base on my experience

It's the Regulation of Tribe SR trap. Not too bad, but I don't understand why Blue Eyed Dragon didn't use Secret Pass to the Treasures instead of SSB - Ceal for direct dmg.
