Decks to farm Tea Lvl 40

Spirit Ryu


Spirit Ryu (6,000 - 7,000)

Notice: Spirit Ryu no longer works as of version 1.3.0
→ Check the latest news!

Use the Spirit Ryu to stall the turns and use Shard of Greed as soon as you can. Twister away her Solemn Wishes so she doesn't get over 7000 LP.

Cerberus (4,000 - 5,000)

Use the standard Cerberus high score deck but it's important to bring 1 or 2 twisters so that you can remove Solemn Wishes. Shard of Greed is also quite important since Tea uses Skelengels and Cards from the Sky.

Be careful when using Stop Defense, if it's a skelengel then it will result in a lose when Tea already has 0 cards left.

Level 40 Tea's Deck



Fairy monsters + Dark Magician Girl

Monsters Tea uses are Fairy-type with except of Dark Magician Girl, and she use Fairy support spells to get an advantage.

How to defeat Tea's deck


Decrease the ATK of Tea's monsters

Tea does not use Twister or other spell removal, so Wonder Balloons can decrease the ATK of monsters she controls continuously. That helps your monster to beat Dunames Dark Witch, the 1800 ATK low-level monster.

Counter LP regeneration by "Simochi"

Bad Reaction to Simoch will work outstandingly to defeat Tea by reversing the effect of Solemn Wishes: she will receive 500 effect damage in the each draw phase.

I battle Tea with Cerberus deck but she keeps activating solemn wishes. By the time I draw my twister she might've already gotten 2 or more solemn wishes on her field or has over 10000 lifepoints and attacking her with by buffed cerberus wont destroy her. What can I do?

Im always getting 6000+ from her by doing 9999+ dmg and letting her mill herself. My deck uses:
+2 shards
—1 riryoku (just have one)
+1 murmur
-2 abyssal (this thing mills her. Remove it for good!)
-1 curry
-1 umi
+1 yami
-2 book
+1 stop defense
+1 grarl axe
+1 sword of deep seated
-1 twister
Sometimes i get to kill her if i get all shards before last 4 cards.

It is a bit hard to farm since Tea always mills herself first with Card From The Sky. Is Supermacy Berry really needed for the Cat Tribe Kaiba farm deck?
HLP 27days ago
Should not use Stop Defense at the last card of Tea if there are all face-down Defending position. If you pick a card like "Skyangle" and then Tea will lose due to out of deck T.T

Maybe they can set up a rule where you can only use a maximum of 3 UR and 8 SR in a Deck.
