Relinquished (3,000 - 4,000)

Angel O7 deck (4,000 - 6,000)

Using Angel O7 to shut down his D.D. Warrior, Kaiba can only deal with it by using his enemy controllers and Blue-Eyes. Bring Riryoku Field and Abyssal Designator to counter them and you will have an easy time for the rest of the duel.

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

CardEffect Summary
Vorse Raider
Vorse Raider
  • 1900 ATK is the higest among low level monsters in current card pool.
D.D. Warrior
D.D. Warrior
  • Banishes your monster.
Enemy Controller
Enemy Controller
  • 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.

Paradox's new skill cured my headache. People should actually be thankful for this event. Just be careful not to tribute the thunder element if you have all preset monsters on the field. This will buy you several turns against econ before the riryoku field arrives.
I just started using this deck. Any comment is welcome.

The only cards you need to worry about are Econ, DD Warrior and BEWD. Econ is countered by the traps or having >1 elements with effect on the field; DD Warrior and BEWD is countered by the effect of elements. Fulfill both conditions asap, then you just need to make sure he's outdrawn. The gate guardian is useless. Feel free to discard it.

Very easy man! Use a standard deck with strong monsters and try, as soon as possible, to summon Gravekeeper's Vassal along with Secret Pass to the Treasures and Gift of the Martyr! But be carful to avoid Enemy Controller!

Thank you so much for the deck. It really works fine! BTW, "Switcheroo" skill can be replaced with Joey's "Reinforcement" skill to bring Kaibaman as fast as possible.

"Reinforcements" sounds like a good option to use alongside Blue Dragon Summoner's effect to bring the combo as soon as possible. Im glad the deck is working for you, hope you get all the cards you need.

KAIBAMAN Deck for farming Kaiba:

Score: 5-7k
Skill: Restart / Last Gamble

3x Blue Dragon Summoner
3x Bubonic Vermin
3x Blue Eyes White Dragon
1x Cobra Jar (or Twin Headed Behemoth)
1x Vasall
2x Union Attack
1x Secret Path (or Burst Stream of D.)
2x Riryoku Field
1x Windstorm of Etaqua

Summon BEWD fast
lower Kaiba's Life Points so he doesnt use his D.D. Warrior
dont attack face down Monsters with BEWD

on the last turn you can lower your HP with last gamble if you like to achieve comeback victory

Piranha + Gift of Martyr + Burst Stream of D. works too, if you dont have Vasall
