[Dinosaur Kingdom]
Begin duel with the field spell "Jurassic World" activated.


Dinos with the Dinosaur Kingdom skill can handle most of Yami Bakura's low level monsters. Use Dust Barrier for some protection against all of his spell cards, and Exile of the Wicked when he starts to summon higher level monsters.

[Destiny Draw]
Can be used each time your Life Points decrease by 2000. In the Draw Phase, instead of doing a normal draw, draw the card of your choice.


Use The Golden apples and enchanted javelin to heal from Yami Bakura's attacks and to summon tokens. Attack any defense position monsters that he uses to force him to use his Sphere Kuribohs and enemy controllers. On the last turn, summon vassal and use secret pass and union attack(s) to deal the finishing blow.

Possible cards/skills to counter

Against Fiend monster

Exile of the Wicked
Exile of the Wicked
Since Yami Bakura's monster cards are mostly fiend-type monsters, this card can be easily used to destroy them.
The Hunter with 7 Weapons
The Hunter with 7 Weapons
Since Yami Bakura's monster cards are mostly fiend-type monsters, this card can easily be a 2000 beater monster to deal with his no-tribute monsters.

Against Dark Necrofear

It is able to return Dark Necrofear along with 1 other card in your opponent's graveyard to their deck when destroyed. This will negate the 'Destiny Board' skill, extending the duel. However, do note that there must be at least 2 cards in your opponent's graveyard to activate its effect.
Gravedigger Ghoul
Gravedigger Ghoul
It is able to remove 2 monster cards in your opponent's graveyard from play. This means that the 'Destiny Board' skill will be negated, extending the duel. However, do note that there must be at least 1 monster card in your opponent's graveyard to activate its effect. Though, most likely it will be Dark Necrofear.
Pot of Benevolence
Pot of Benevolence
It is able to return 2 cards from either player's graveyard to their decks. This will negate the 'Destiny Board' skill. However, do note that there must be at least 2 cards in any player's graveyard to activate its effect.
Helps to remove from play 1 card in your opponent's graveyard. Again, it helps to negate the 'Destiny Board' skill. This allows you to extend the duel.
[Skill] descriptionUser
[No Mortal Can Resist]
Can be used when your Life points are at least 1000 less than the opponent's. All monsters in the opponent's Graveyard changes to Skull Servants (Zombie / DARK / Level 1 / ATK: 300 / DEF: 200). This skill can only be used once per turn.


Against Spell cards

Dust Barrier
Dust Barrier
It allows your normal monsters to be unaffected by all spell cards for 2 turns which may be useful since Yami Bakura's Lvl 40 deck consists of monster and spell cards.
It is used mainly to destroy Yami Bakura's Ectoplasmer.
Magic Jammer
Magic Jammer
It negates and destroy any spell cards at the cost of 1 card. This prevents Yami Bakura from using Soul Exchange.
Riryoku Field
Riryoku Field
Aside from Ectoplasmer, Yami Bakura's Lvl 40 deck consists of spells that requires a monster to target to activate its effect, which fits the criteria of Riryoku Field. Mainly helps to negate Soul Exchange.

Hey guys, this is a good way to counter Bakura's deck.

Your deck need:

- 3 exchange.
- 3 Armageddon Designator.

Optional and very useful:

- 1 Soul Exchange.
- 1 Sphere Kuribo.

Dino deck doesn't work on level 40, sorry. 3 straight losses with that crap.
anoymous 14hour ago
For the lazy ones, here's what I run. Requires no farming strategy whatsoever and is cheap to build. Easy 4000 duel assessment each and every time:

Ability: Duelist Kingdom

1x Meteor B.
1x Black Skull
2x Twin-Headed Thunder
1x Bracchio-Radius

1x Summoned Skull
1x Meteor Dragon
3x Thunder Dragon
3x King Rex
3x Crawling Dragon
3x fusion subs

1x Fusion Gate
3x Polymerization

Correction: ability is Dinosaur Kingdom of course. Guess what anime season I've been watching lately? >_>

Is farming lvl 30 better than farming lvl 40? Whats a good decklist for each
anoymous 15hour ago
Only if you can't consistently beat the level 40 Bakura, then yes. Otherwise no. You pay 40 dices and get 18 multiplier, instead of paying 20 dices twice getting 7 multiplier twice (14 only).
anoymous 15hour ago
yes it is because it costs half the amount of dice and you have more chances of winning with a high Duel assesment

If Bakura get "Bazoo, the soul eater" with Exchange, he will banish his Dark Necrofear for attack boost, lol.
Neodecadente 19hour ago
I'm sure a good deck can be built around The Legendary Fisherman... But I haven't been able to build a consistent one :c... Therefore, I leave this idea here if anyone can achieve what I didn't

Anyone finds that the AI is changed?
Bakura sometimes only sacrifice his monster for Ectoplasmer? especially when i have Des Counterblow activated. It is harder to control magic/trap zone although I mainly use magic cards to heal.
anoymous 17hour ago
Auto duel will only attack while you have des counterblow if and ONLY IF the total attack of his monsters equals or exceeds your life points. Let's say you have 3600 LP and Bakura has 2 monsters with a total attack of 3000, he will not attack if you have des counterblow, because that will destroy his monsters and leave him open for attacks. However, he will attack if his monsters attack is 3600

For those who have union attack. Supremacy berry is also preferable also if I could pull spell reclamation I could get 10k damage.
Anarchy 14hour ago
With destiny draw you have control if that.

With destiny draw you have control if that.
anoymous 15hour ago
you need two spell reclamation because sometimes it will be the last card in your deck and you can't activate a trap card the same turn it's played
Anarchy 17hour ago
You would need spell reclamation.
anoymous 18hour ago
Will it function with only one union attack? Yugi decided to give me everything else instead of two union.
Anarchy 19hour ago
Just sharing what I don't see on here bro. This is by far the best deck I've seen to farm him at 40. Everyone else seems to be stuck on 30.

Can hit 7k if I get to play my other glossy.

Max 6700 points with simple Dinosaur Deck.... Be Careful with Card Exchange that will steal your attack boost or ritual card... Haha...
So many replaced about this card, so don't worry if you don't have one... :D
Anon (author) 1days ago
Forget... This deck is to kill Bakura lvl 30... :D
Anon (author) 1days ago
You must add 2 monsters type fiend lvl 5 or more... Just in case Card Exchange success summon with it. Then, you can counter with Wicked Exile Spell Card...
