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

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).

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
