New and efficient ways to farm lvl 40 are being looked at. In the meantime, check out what others have found success with down at the comments below.

Level 40 Seto's deck



  • High ATK monsters

    Vorse Raider have the highest ATK at 1900 among low level monsters.
  • Enough tribute summon supports

    By using Twin-Headed Behemoth and Cost Down, Seto tribute summons high ATK high level monsters.

Annoying cards

  • 1900 ATK is the higest among low level monsters in current card pool.

  • Banishes your monster.

  • Change battle position of your monster.

Tips for defeating Seto


  • Use monster removal

    Since it is difficult to destroy Seto's high ATK monsters in a battle, use monster removals to beat them.
  • Equip spells/Wonder Balloon don't work well

    You may not apply those cards since Seto use Twister to remove those cards.
  • Attack with Element Soldier/Doom

    Destroy monsters Kaiba controls with using Element Soldier / Element Doom and support cards such as Sword of Dark Destruction or other equip spells. Those Element monsters can negate the effect of D.D. Warrior.

  • Perform Tribute and Ritual summon

    Performing both Tribute and Ritual summon gives you 700 score in total. If you have already unlocked Pegasus, use Relinquished to perform ritual summon. For tribute summon, Shadow Ghoul is ok since it is very easy to get.

  • Finish with Shadow Ghoul's over 3000 damage

    Shadow Ghoul gains 100 ATK for each monster in your graveyard. Use Sword of Dark Destruction, Reinforcements and other ATK boost to increase the ATK of the monster over 3,000, then attack Kaiba's Life Points directly with the monster.

What strategy should Joey use to take on Kaiba lvl 40?
anoymous 6hour ago
This past month I traveled Western Kentucky, and it really didn't seem southern to me, either because of the influence from Missouri. I wouldn't say it was like Northern Kentucky, but it wasn't what I was used to. Then Louisville is right across the river from Indiana - and I wouldn't consider Indiana southern, so I don't see why Louisville would be considered southern, either. hehehehe.

I tried all decks on the deck, but none of them worked well. I created one which works in 75% of the tries: Modify a classic Cerberus deck. Add 3 Sphere Kuribos, 2 Magic Jammers, and most importantly 3 Gravity Axes. With this setup the only annoying card is the D.D. Warrior, but you can turn it to the side with the Kuribohs or Enemy Controllers, and keep it that way with the Enemy Controllers. Don't use up your Magic Jammer on an Enemy Controller if you have a Kuriboh in you hand, because after the failed attack you will get your Cerberus back. Use the Magic Jammer mostly against the Twister, and keep one for the final strike!
Typhon 1days ago
Can't add Chain of Destruction because 2 slots cannot be used up by trap cards. Together with the Gravity Axe there would be no free slots.
Typhon 1days ago
The Riryoku Field is not good against the twister. And if the Gravity Axe is destroyed then the DD Warrior can get loose.
Typhon 1days ago
Let me show you. Use the "Field Spell" -> "Murmur of the Forest" -> F.S. -> M.o.t.F. combo to increase the counters.
anoymous 1days ago
Use Chain of Destruction for DD Warrior.
anoymous 1days ago
Use Riryoku Field instead of Magic Jammer for Enemy Controllers.

Ok guys just wanted to share this! Out of 25 duels or more (taking advantage of the glitch where I quit mid-duel, close the app and when I open it again the legendary duelist reappers on the duel world) with kaiba lvl 40 using the happy girl or baou method and losing every single duel.... I came out with this deck. Its a simple dino deck with scorpion but it worked for me and with only one prismatic and 3 glossies it gave me 6000 points. You only need one monster to summon scorpion (and with the number of monsters in this deck is easier in my opinion) and with the cards to defend him I used its a way more consistent method than the others. The only downside is that I used 3 enemy controllers but you can substitute them with order to charge or mirror wall. I already had 1 prismatic enemy controller from the KC cup and this is now my second one :)

Does that glitch work for Yugi Muto?
MauMP 3days ago
Sure! Right now (because konami will surely fix it) if you´re fighting a legendary duelist on the duel world (not the duel gate) and if you are about to lose you can just close the app and then reopen it. A message will appear asking you to resume or quit the duel. Choose quit and the same duelist you just fought will be at the duel world! Very useful for farming and getting lots of points!
anoymous 3days ago
Can you explain further regarding quit?
MauMp 3days ago
Ok, so from my dino deck i changed both my riryokus for two union attacks. Removed the baou sword for a gravekeepers vassal and removed a crawling dragon for a secret pass to the treasure. This way I did over 9000 damage and would have reached the 7000 points but kaiba destroyed my first scorpion and only I destroyed 7 of his monsters. It may be a not so cheap deck but it definitely works!!
MauMP 3days ago
Challenged Kaiba again and had no troubles at all! If you summon millenium scorpion early and kill two monsters youll get his lp so low that even if he has a dd warrior he wont attack because it would be suicide. The equip sword might work in cass he doesnt use twister but even if he destroys it if your scorpions gets high attack points then it GG!! Good luck!

Is no-one using abysmal designator earth/warrior to remove d.d. warrior? U people go through way too much trouble for inconsistency
anoymous 7days ago
...except there's 3 D.D warriors. and you rarely start the match off with 3000+ lifepoints to cast 3 abyssal designators...

This is my deck to farm Kaiba lv40.
It works pretty well; in the best case, I won with 7000 of duel rate.
I hope you enjoy it.

To convert this to f2p, I replaced the Half Shuts with Metalmorph, and grabbed Yugi's Destiny Draw skill to grab Half Shut if I really need it. The problem with it is, even with Half Shut, your set Baou is still vulnerable to DD Warrior, so this deck isn't perfect, but it has potential as a f2p deck.

^^ Uhh.. he means Union Attack will EQUIP to your Piranha using monsters you have on the side of your field to help get the attack over 5K, which doubles for over 9999 dmg......
anoymous 1days ago
^Stupid. Union Attack can't deal damage.
anoymous 2days ago
Union Attack will let you get the piranhas over 5K, which will get you the "over 9999!" reward.

You need to adjust your thought. Because the AI seems to know what you wanted the most and decide...
i am so upset that yugi muto didn't drop even 1 union attack but i have been fighting lv.30 ...
