Destiny Draw deck to farm Kaiba lvl 40

Duel Links Breaking News
Structure Deck EX: Secret of Magicians
update 30/03/2017


For Destiny Draw decks, the idea behind it is to use it multiple times, by taking damage and healing up to compensate for the damage taken, and repeat the process. You get to choose what card to draw from your deck during your draw phase if your opponent deals at least 2000 damage to you, regardless whether it is by effect or by battle.

How to use this deck

At the start of your turn

  • Set down any healing trap cards that you get, prioritizing Enchanted Javelin at the early turns.
  • Activate Javelin/Nutrient-Z when Kaiba attacks you with monsters that are above 1900 attack.
  • If you have to use your golden apples, make sure to only use 1 so you can save the other for his Blue-Eyes.

Once you manage to summon your token using Kaiba's Blue-Eyes, make sure you protect it with a Riryoku Field. If you don't have it, you can summon 4-Starred Ladybug of Doom in attack position and attack into Kaiba's Blue-Eyes to take damage, only if your LP is enough.

Using Destiny Draw

You can activate Destiny Draw each time your LP is decreased by 2000. Use the skill when you need to draw certain cards. If you have plenty of other healing cards in your hand, take a Golden Apple from your deck, but only activate it when Blue-Eyes attacks. After you have at least 1 apple, it's recommended to take a riryoku field to defend against his enemy controller.
Note: Don't special summon the token in attack position since Kaiba might crash with his Blue-Eyes if his other monsters can finish you off.

Preparations before the final turn

Before you get to your last turn, make sure you do the following:

  • If you are using Spell Reclamation instead of 2 union attack, make sure you set it before your last turn.
  • Set 1 or 2 Riryoku Field depending on how many Enemy Controller Kaiba has left.

Final turn


You don't have to follow them in the exact order, just be sure to use double union attack, and that all your monsters are in attack position.


The main important thing about using Piranha is that you have to use secret pass on him before increasing his attack(s).

Possible replacements

Just make a cerberus deck with Yugi's sorcery conduit skill, then you can easily start farming lvl40 Tea, Rex, Weevil, Odion, and with a slight tweak Joey.

Any lvl40 LD farm will optimize chances of DD drop. Agreed Rex is the easiest, but others pretty easy too and you might want to farm cards at same time.
So without Union Attack or Lab Builder, I'm using this Destiny Draw deck and getting pretty consistent (maybe >80% win rate) 5k-6k wins on Kaiba.

Of course my first 3 super rare drops are two Battle Ox and one Familiar Knight, *le sigh*. Just gotta keep grinding and keep my fingers crossed that Kaiba stops being a stingy jerk. Gimme them good cards !

As a followup -- thanks Konami for the bonus keys event. Just started really farming with DD deck after saving up keys -- used 700 of my 2400 keys on Kaiba, and got:

1x BEWD (already had 3 free ones tho)
2x Battle Ox
2x Familiar Knight
1x Econ (first one! )
1x CV (first one too! )

The econ was the hella lucky 1 drop for a loss tho : ) Feels good. Finally....
I used this deck and got lost like 5 times in a row. I think I still don't understand how to use it. Anyway, for Kaiba lvl 30 and 40 I prefer Labyrinth deck over any deck. That one gives me a win rate like 95% with 8k points.
why d.d warrior not attack the appl?

Thats a lot of trap cards, the potential for a clog is is insanely high.

The purpose of this deck isn't to draw monsters, its to abuse the ability Destiny Draw while healing to be able to set up Golden Apples and protect it with Riryoku Fields.
Is this deck realy responsable?

Any replacement for apples only have 1

maybe clonning, and use it when Kaiba summon Blue eyes
deck is gimmicky, but arguably still the best one.
You have to start with at least 1 golden apple + 2 riryoku fields to guarentee a winnable duel.

You also have to guarentee that his 1st monster is a Vorse Raider and you have a 2nd apple before he gets out a BEWD/Luster Dragon.
could cloning replace apples?

no. only reason why Golden Apples is used because it's technically a "1 star" monster. Cloning uses whatever stars you clone. For example, BEWD is 8*, so clone is 8 *. BECAUSE of this, he WILL crash D.D. warrior to anything above 3* monster. Since Malus Token is 1* star, he will not attack with D.D. warrior because it's "not worth it".
This doesnt work i wasted 4 duels with him unless you open with good trap cards u r boned
is there anyone who can tell variation of that deck with packs on sale currently??
