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.

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

3 apples is the most stable. If you have 2, you can pair it with Blast Held By Tribute, but the consistency is only about 60%.

Pretty efficient for farming Kaiba 8k scores, if you want more consistancy, you can remove the rituals for Supremacy Berry, or anything else to stall turn.

Would you please share the full deck you use to farm Kaiba?
Unlucky at All 10days ago
I'm using this deck to farm Kaiba. It is so consistent, you can say about 95%! Lately, I have farmed him a lot, and today, I farmed him five times, however, I didn't get any single SR card! Why is the drop rate very bad? Any help or suggestion guys!?

How can i replace the 3rd golden apples?
<< Anonymous(Unlucky at All)

The trick is when you get at least 1 SR card, try not to close the app, but keep farming him. However, if you didn't get SR cards, close the app then open it and try again.

Concerning the field spell, if Sojen is set, Kaiba cannot destroy it with Twister. All you have to do is not to activate it but set only.

Maybe you can replace the Golden Apples with Cloning, however, those apples still better and safe.

Hey guys! I found the answer to the question "Are cards like Enemy Controller harder to get because they are better?"

I made an interesting new consistent deck to farm lvl 40 Kaiba. Use your typical unhappy union deck with x3 nimble musasabi to crowd his field.

It might work if Kaiba have summoned Blue-Eyes and Luster Dragon. Otherwise, he will just tribute those Musasabis.

Anoymous 10days ago Reply
Sorry I didn't read Musasabi effects thoroughly lol. It can't be tributed for tribute summon, so your idea is really good IMO. Just pair it with Riryoku Field to prevent econ and I think it is good.

Why? To break the game? Next you will ask Konami to add Cyber Dragons and Red Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon. No thanks.
