  • Can special summon itself.
  • Retrieves a Six Samurai monster from your graveyard.


  • Low stats compared to other monsters his level.
  • Must be destroyed by card effect to activate recovery effect.



  • Although Grandmaster doesnt really do much on his own, he is still an important part of the Six Samurai strategy. Because you can special summon him with ease he could help you swarm the field with Six Samurais, Leveraging into Great Shogun Shien and you other support cards.

Six Samurai

You can have any of these monsters on the field so that you can special summon Grandmaster of the Six Samurai.

Great Shogun Shien

You can special summon Grandmaster of the Six Samurai and with 2 Six Samurai monsters on the field, you can special summon Great Shogun Shien.

Archetype Support

These cards are to support the Six Samurai's strategy of swarming the field with monsters. Swiftstrike Armor can be a little slow, but it can potentially let you get an extra summon during your turns, allowing you to get 2 monsters out on the field. It can also be used with Reload since all of the monsters you get after using Reload can be special summoned with Swifstrike Armor. Cunning of the Six Samurai is used to let your Six Samurai monster dodge enemy effects.


All of the Six Samurai monsters are warrior-type monsters, so using The A. Forces will help boost their attack, which can be devastating if you can swarm the field.

No. It says card effect only.
I got this card with just 10 packs... damn ! I'm pretty sure the new box will make Six Samurais META
If Six Samurais become a meta, people will have to dig in a 200 packs main box for this UR card. xD

I got one on my first 10.

Two would be better though just in case.
Obvious Tip. It can recover itself fomr the grave so basically it cannot die unless banished
Easy to summon, very nice.
Yes! Finally this old man is here!

Lucky bastard

60 packs and no Samurai or even the SR/UR nobleknights. Only stupid Xen Hu, DDD garbage, lame monarch and meme creator.
Still have to wait on kaigeki, Kazan, enishi, and Shadow, but yeah, pumped
Finally my ultimate six samurai deck...
Meanwhile, most people still afraid to Cyber Dragon

Cyber Dragon is scarier than this card. You don't need anything to combo it and you can use Cyber Dragon with any deck. Not sure what you don't understand about why that card is good. What next, Cyber Twin Dragon isn't a good card too? Please.
