Astral BarrierAstral Barrier----


  • Stall with Astral Barrier, Spirit Barrier, and at least 1 monster on the field.
  • Let Syrus attack into your set Crystal Seer and A Cat of Ill Omen helps you search out your stall combo.
  • Have as many Neo-Spacian Air Hummingbirds and White Magician Pikeru on the field as possible so that you can quickly gain lots of LP.
  • You can use Magic Planter to get rid of an Astral Barrier or Spirit Barrier on the field to draw 2 cards. But make sure you have a replacement in your hand before you do this.
  • During your final turn summon The Winged Dragon of Ra and give it all but 100 of your LP to use as attack. Activate Anti-Magic Arrows during the battle phase and attack into Syrus' weakest monster.

Sea Stealth AttackSea Stealth Attack----


  • Discard Warrior of Atlantis to search out A Legendary Ocean.
  • With A Legendary Ocean on the field, you can summon Level 5 WATER monsters without tribute.
  • Special summon Fortress Whale with his own effect to search out Sea Stealth Attack.
  • Your stall setup should be A Legendary Ocean, Sea Stealth Attack, and up to 2 high-leveled WATER monsters.
  • Keep destroying Syrus' monsters so that he will have less chance to fusion summon.
  • You can use Sea Stealth Attack to temporarily banish your monsters dodging the effects of Shield and Sword and Inverse Universe.
  • Make sure you activate Anti-Magic Arrows during your final battle phase so that Syrus cannot activate No Entry!!.

Medusa Control

Essential cards

Acid RainAcid Rain---Master of Oz


  • In order to get 8k+ pts, you will need to destroy 10 monsters and at least 2 glossy cards (even during the +1000 extra campaign bonus), so keep using Medusa Worm more than Guardian Statue.
  • Use Restart skill to make sure you get Array of Revealing Light or Planet Pathfinder. Ideally, with a Medusa Worm or Guardian Statue as well.
  • Use Array of Revealing Light and choose Machine type monsters.
  • Set at least 2 monsters on the field since Syrus has Shield Crush and keep destroying/returning his monsters until the last turn.
  • For monsters Syrus summons with Vehicroid Connection Zone, you will need to use Guardian Statue for non-destruction removal.
  • Summon Planet Pathfinder when you are safe so you can use its effect to thin your deck if you haven't drawn your field spells.
  • On the last turn, it's important to remember to activate Temple of the Kings first before you tribute summon for Serket.
  • Activate Serket's effect to get Oz out and use double Wild Nature's Release to reach 10k damage.

Legendary Fisherman

Union AttackMagical MalletMagical MalletMagical MalletSecret Pass to the TreasuresSpirit Barrier
Spirit BarrierSpirit Barrier----


  • The setup you need to make revolves around 3 cards A Legendary Ocean, The Legendary Fisherman, and Spirit Barrier. All other cards in this deck are for consistency boosting or for your last turn Gravekeeper's Vassal combo.
  • When A Legendary Ocean is on the field you can summon The Legendary Fisherman without tribute and he cannot be targeted by spell cards effects or targeted for attacks.
  • Syrus will still be able to attack you directly. To prevent us from losing because of this, we use Spirit Barrier so that his direct attacks will do no damage while The Legendary Fisherman is on the field.
  • Planet Pathfinder is used to search out A Legendary Ocean, your skill Reinforcements are used to search out The Legendary Fisherman, while crystal seer is used to excavate into whatever piece is missing from your combo.
  • Use Magical Mallet to return the cards you don't need back to deck and draw the same amount of cards you returned.
  • You can use The Legendary Fisherman to attack Syrus' defense position monsters to maximize your score. But do not deal battle damage to Syrus as this will lessen your final Duel Assessment.
  • Remember to use Anti-Magic Arrow during your final battle phase to prevent Syrus from using No Entry.

This is by far my least favorite part about character unlocks. EVERY other character it was possible to just have cards in your deck to finish their unlock challenges and get their decks. So I have no idea why they gated Zane behind "LOL F you guys who want to play cyber end or cyber dark decks, heres an impossible farm quest, see you next year", not cool Konami

SSA deck = 15% win rate lol can’t beat that dumb drill

I know the feeling. He won't drop the third one for me no matter what and I now have about ten or more of all of his other SR and UR. They should NOT have a card you need for a mission be SR or UR reward. That is why I asked for it to be included in Train Your Kuriboh! when a survey asked about it.
lmao, ssa shouldn't be here anymore since Restart was nerfed. It lost the little consistency it had so it's nowhere near viable anymore.

70% of the time you won't Need to restart anyways, so there's no point.
I'm using this Aromage Ra deck. It works pretty well, and the gameplay is really easy. You can add another draining shield if you have it because it really helps if you don't get the field quick. Jasmine draws your deck pretty fast, and Rosemary can take out most of Syrus's monsters. Use the E.Cons to change the position of a monster on the last turn. Always leave one of his monsters face up for that matter

Short form for economy, usually it's people bragging about their credit cards

Joking aside, Econ = the spell card Enemy Controller
Guys, don't use the Ra farm deck presented here... the asshole from put it here to make you waste your keys. It's success rate is less than 20%. SSA amd Medusa decks are the best! Good luck to you all.
The Medusa Control doesn't work if enemy uses vechiroid connection zone

Use Guardian Statue
Everyone needs to rally for Konami to implement a way of discarding unwanted items like gate keys that reach max capacity and flood the inbox extremely frequently. This a serious problem for those that want to be able to navigate their gift box for items of actual value like gems

Problem is, it was always set as a rare, but he didn’t originally drop it which made the actual rarity a moot point. Then, they pull this dumb 🔥 lol.
he is really short at the gate. its hilarious.

He's the shortest character over 16 (I think Leo and Luna are shorter maybe? But they're like 12)

I always thought he was the same height as Yugi, because Yugi only comes up to people's waist in some frames. But NOPE, guess who is Yugi's height. JADEN. Yugi and Jaden are listed as being 5'3". Syrus is like 4'8".

Syrus is 14-15, the same as Jaden.

Also are we talking about Yugi as in Yami Yugi or Yugi as in Mutou Yugi, they have different heights
The maximum attack points that it will absorb is 65535 and still absorbs ur LP til 100 and wont go up. Hit over 65535 LP twice using Tardy Syrus farming deck.

We don't even have Xyz yet, Pendulum is still going to be far away.
Actually, my point was more that MPB should have never entered Duel Links in the first place.
