Example Deck

Other Useful Cards

You may sometimes fail to finish the duel with The Winged Dragon of Ra due to your opponent setting some form of monster removal during your final turn, like Seto Kaiba with D.D. Warrior. So, you have to add piercing damage to your deck.

  • You can use many different defensive cards, as long as they help you survive, or draw cards.
  • When Kaiba summons his Blue-Eyes White Dragon, use triple Massivemorph on it.
  • Use Floodgate on Kaiba's Luster Dragon #2. If you don't have Floodgate, you can use a Massivemorph on it. Then use Pot of Benevolence to return your Massivemorph and use it on Blue-Eyes.
  • When you have 0 cards left in your deck, special summon The Fiend Megacyber, then tribute summon Catapult Turtle. Use Soul Exchange on Kaiba's Blue-Eyes, then activate Catapult Turtle's effect.

The Fiend Megacyber can be changed to any card that you can special summon, like Anteatereatingant.

It's important to remember not to set 3 spells/traps to not clog your field. And do not set your Arrivalrivals on the last turn, since you need to activate it from your hand.

  • Sustain the duel by activating Temple of the Mind's Eye, Solemn Wishes, and Des Counterblow as soon as you get them.
  • Use Planet Pathfinder's effect to thin your deck by getting Temple of the Mind's Eye from your deck.
  • Keep activating your skill whenever you can. The Ojamas can't be used for tribute summon, and it's to prevent Kaiba from summoning more monsters.
  • Once you have over 10,000 LP and have the necessary cards (Arrivalrivals, Ra, Stop Defense, Storm, Cosmic Compass), then you can already end the duel without having to wait until 0 cards left.
  • Use Storm to clear Kaiba's spells. Then Stop Defense on an Ojama token. Normal summon Cosmic Compass to special summon 2 tokens on the field. Enter battle phase and activate Arrivalrivals from your hand to tribute summon Ra. Activate Ra's effect and attack into your Ojama token.

This is my deck for Kaiba lv 30. It's very cheap since you can get all the UR and SR cards from the Card Trader. I always get 8000+ asessment points playing only 2 glossies and 1 prismatic. I have a 95% win rate with it because you only lose if you draw no monsters or Riryoku Fields in the first 3-4 turns. That's why I choose to use LP Boost α, so I can have extra life in case I have bad draws.

Maybe it's very self-explanatory how to use it but if you have any questions about the deck just let me know.

Hi guys, I would like to share an ultra low-cost deck for F2P players that offers consistent farming against Kaiba at level 40, with a guaranteed score of 8000DA. I propose two versions for the deck: a "starter" one which only uses 3 SR cards, and a "standard" one (much more consistent) using 5 SR cards. Here are the decks...

I have a question, when D.D. tries to attack the wall, D-gate the wall. But then he'll attack me directly, right? So how to deal with it? i noticed that sometimes Kaiba won't E-con his D.D just to remove my wall, so in this case?
Anonymous
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.

Tribute doll is the backup plan. If he controls BEWD, he will definitely attack, for he doesn't realize elements regain their effect after being sent back to the field.

That said, I noticed there is already a build wall farming deck out there. Not sure if that works better.

Why cobra jar in this deck? i still don't have it, can i use a 4 star bug instead?

When Cobra Jar is destroyed, a token of it is summoned. Yes, you can use it since all Kaiba's monsters, except those that need a tribute, are four-star monsters.

This deck gave me my 2nd enemy controller! I didn't say that the win rate of this deck is 100%! It also needs some luck! So, I'm not bothering people but helping them, unlike others who start showing off with their drops and never show their decks!!!!!

If someone could add this to the page, that'd be nice

The Labyrinth Wall + Dimension Gate farm no longer works as well as it did previously. A recent update has made Kaiba wise up. He will now attack you directly if you have Labyrinth Wall banished with Dimension Gate. He will also target it with Twister, if he has it

This Deck, however, works wonders

8000+ assessment if it goes off properly. 8300 is what I frequently get with it. It's super simple to play, and nullifies all but one of Kaiba's threats with Silent Magician LV8 alone. Blue Eyes, Enemy Controller, Twister, none of that matters. The only thing she can't solve on her own is DD Warrior, which Super Rush Headlong can easily destroy.

If you don't get the Silent Magician LV4 and Level Up on the first couple turns, don't worry. Set some Crystal Seers if you open with them. Set Windstorm. Even take some direct hits. You're fine taking a couple hits, you're gonna be using Last Gamble anyway. To draw your combo pieces and Super Rush, as well as deduct your LP down to 100 for the LP On The Brink bonus

All you do with this deck is summon Silent Magician LV8 while having Super Rush Headlong to protect her from DD Warrior. That is literally it. Just sit on her until Kaiba eventually runs out of DD Warriors (you'll know you're completely safe from DD Warrior once his monster zones are all filled up with set monsters. He won't even tribute them off for Blue Eyes). After that, just summon Vassal, use triple Union Attack and Secret Pass, then use Anti-Magic Arrows to make sure Kaiba doesn't use Econ on you. Simple as that

you cannot activate quick-play spell the turn you set it, but you can activate it from your hand in your battle phase

Chivalry works the same way. Since DD activates it's effect in the battle phase. You can use chivalry :)

This is a REALLY cheap farming build for people that don't have Dimension Gate or Destiny Draw. Basically, Kaiba can't get over Labyrinth Wall with anything else but D.D. Warrior. Canyon + Goblin Thief means that Kaiba will kill himself if he rams D.D. Warrior into Labyrinth. Alternatively, using three Goblin Thiefs, or a combination of Goblin Thief and Kaiba using Twister causes Kaiba to not have enough LP either. Kaiba never destroys Canyon with Twister unless it's already set. Never set 3 Riryokus because Kaiba will just deck you out if he can.

Excellent deck
I don't have Gate, but using it with Union attack x3 plus Garal, and hinotama instead of goblin because I only have one lol 3 shard of greed to bait twister and we not Vessal for monster, somehow he never use twister on canyon or the equip card at the end, (had UP ready with dead canyon usually ready)
trying to find a way to manage life point, likely via mirror force

Phil Reply
That's the question to every farm deck with Kaiba man, 3x RF and a couple Ultimate Providence is imo the best bet, and great with the Canyon combo because often you'll have read canyon or damage spell in hand (i.e.: goblin or hinotama)
<< Anonymous(Phil)
OP Reply
Providence is probably the best bet, it just really stinks because you're already sending two cards back to the deck to get out LW. Been trying to cut down the cards needed to OTK to maybe add in E-Cons or something to help avoid D.D. or E-Cons early game. Something I've been thinking is scratching the Canyons to stop worrying about Twister and just trying to deal 1500 damage to Kaiba ASAP.
<< Anonymous(Phil)
OP Reply
I've also tested Xing Xhen Hu successfully, but only once, and it does heavily lock your field because you really don't know if you've locked Twisters, E-Cons, or even Cost Down. I figure that a consistent build is much better than a high scoring inconsistent build and LW definitely has the ability to get it done, even without Gate.

You guys just lucky that Kaiba doesn't Twister-ing your Dimension Gate, probably because he fills his backrow with Econ and Cost Down.

For anyone that doesn't believe Kaiba will Twister ur D Gate, here's the proof. You can see in my graveyard that my D.Gate is destroyed by Twister (see in Kaiba's graveyard).

Yo of coz dis doesnt happend to u if ur game's not up-to-date. I use the same deck b4 n no prob at all. But now, after the update, Kaiba'll Twister your DGate (only if he has DD Warrior/Econ in his hand). Well, last time I was lucky cuz I got 3 DGate early so my Wall is protected. But, at end turn when I use Storm, if youve any monster (in my case, a fusion one), he pop up Econ for my fusion

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.

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 :)

Hey Mau, you seem to be a very good deck builder. I do have many many keys for kaiba, and would like to try a few decks to make one perfect deck. Can you build a sealsman Tao/ Angel07 deck? These two cards I feel could be useful in locking out Econ and DD warrior. If you don't want to test the deck it is fine, I will be glad to test it myself with the extra keys I have. let me know what you think!

DECK 3SD NO UNION, NO GOLDEN APPLES, NO DIM. GATE.
This deck work (90% win) 5-6K.
You can replace the care cards if you have the best ones.
It is important to summon as soon as possible two monsters (suijin, sanga or kazejin).
When you summon one, it's VERY IMPORTANT that you care that your LPs are higher than your monster's attack, so he will not use a enemy controller.
After you stall the duel until the last turn and you know what to do to win...

I just put one martyr gift and I make 5000 damage. You can put it 2 and make 10000 dmg, but at your own risk.

Forgive my English, I am Italian.

So kaiba doesnt attack with blueeyes and dd warrior? Or do you keep his field clear and keep resummoning the banished monsters because you attacked a set dd warrior.
If he doesnt attack at all then i could sneak in a union attack and spell reclamation for some sweat +1k

He does attack with DD warrior, as long as he has enough LP to survive. But I've never seen him attacking with it.
