Not the greatest card out there, but still looks fun. I just wish Joey would hurry up and drop him. I've grinded him dozens of times and still don't have one copy. Same thing for Weevil and Grasschopper.

grasschopper is pretty hard. I never got a single one of skull marked ladybug either. (for anyone confused.. skull marked ladybug is NOT 4-star ladybug).

could bewd + burststream of destruction be better?

Yes Actually. Blue eyes can get on the filed easier with Kaibaman. Yes it cant attack but 1) your field can be empty and you can still summon BEWD 2) You would need to protect your tributes for one turn i.e waste protection cards 3) In the event of econ/Kuriboh Blue eyes has better DEF stats

Kaibaman + BEWD + Burst Stream = 3 cards whereas Gilford = 3 random monsters + Gilford = 4 cards. So yeah, BEWD is better. It does take more specific cards, but in return it's far, FAR easier to get out (how often do you have 3 monsters on the field in a turn where you still can Normal Summon?)

Ah, forgot about Obedience Schooled. But that's not without its cost: it means you have to fill your deck with a lot of lvl 2 Beast-Types (taking into account you may draw some). So, Gilford may be usable in a Baboon deck, but it's a terrible idea to run Obedience Schooled JUST for Gilford

i made a warrior deck with gilford with some other beast warriors since i have the sogen field spell. its a prototype tho. need to have gearfried

This card is so costly in speed duel that you need to build a lot of support for it. Rather gimmicky and is not recommended for serious decks in PVP.

Here's my attempt at a deck built around Gilford (only have one copy). Stray Lambs, Bubonic Vermin, Kaiser Sea Horse, and various defensive cards help me keep 3 tributes on the field. Once I do, Reinforcements helps me get Gilford reliably. Otherwise, it's a pretty standard beatdown deck. Any ideas for improvement? Specifically, ways to activate Gilford's effect even more easily?

in which level is better to fight Joey and get this card
is it lv 40 or 30

always level 40 is best, and also if you do over 5000 dmg in one hit, you get 1800 bonus points in the assessment. to do 5000 damage you need riryoku and i strong monster like tyrant dragon with guardian grarl on the field to do the damage, with other cards like gravity axe - grarl and black pendant

Does Light Effigy + 1 other tribute work? if yes, Celestial Transformation + Light Effigy would be great for this.

no because light effigy only works on NORMAL MONSTER

Would Kaiser work as 2 of the three tributes needed? That would make him easier to use

yes it works

Literally Daedalus but harder to use effectively.

Not at all, Daedalus destroys everything on the field whereas Gilford only destroys monsters.

Daedalus destroys everything, including your own cards on the field, Gilford only destroys your opponent's monsters.
