Konami, it´s been 5 years already. When are we getting the alternative art of Gilford?

How would this card be in a venus sky scourge enrise deck?

you better off focusing on this card instead of Enrise

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?

I remember way back in the day when Sargent Electro was a meta staple in nearly every deck. The game was so much simpler back then

Yeah, I kinda miss the time when decks looks like the one OP posted, having wide variety of cards.

Now once you see one card from the opponent's deck, there's no surprise anymore, you basically know most of their deck since everyone plays the same cards for the same kind of deck.

My main monster is Zoma the Spirit IRL. What kind of deck am I running? :D

Kaiser Sea Horse is kinda pointless in there, right? I don't think you can tribute just Kaiser Sea Horse + 1 monster to fulfill Gilford's on-summon effect

Let's say, hypothetically, that I've used the first ever SR ticket on this instead on Enemy Controller like every other rational being.

Not a big deal. You will get many more SR tickets. Just make sure that you don't waste your dream tickets.

I meant THE first one ever in the game, after the first KC Cup I think.

Cyber Style, anyone?

This card is actually a mini Obelisk that can attack on the same turn. After you blow up the field, if you can Special Summon another monster with at least 1200 ATK, then it's an OTK.

Just use AMA to protect it and your other monster from annoying backrows during battle phase.

Just kuriboh it up with flute of summoning, normal kuriboh, winged kuribog, and multiply. Special summon kuriboh and use multiply, summon Gilford for 3 kuriboh tokens and done

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).

How did you summon them? By the effect of a battlin boxer card? Maybe said effect locks you to on...
