Obtainable score5000-6000
Essential skillDestiny Draw
Essential cards
  • Des Counterblow
  • Union Attack
  • Gravekeeper's Vassal
  • Nutrient Z

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.

A burn deck with Tea's that's made with the possibility to win on turn 1. This can be used to win against most opponent, but it requires some luck at times and the score can only be around 4,000.

Possible cards/skills to counter

Against Fiend monster

CardExplanation
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

CardExplanation
Keldo
Keldo
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.
Disappear
Disappear
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.

Ishizu

Against Spell cards

CardExplanation
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.
Twister
Twister
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.

Why do you guys continue to make example decks with cards that are no longer available. Whenever there's a new event out. It's always use these cards that you can't get anymore to farm yugi or Pegasus.

Can the "pros" come up with decks that don't involve ultimate rising or that water deck?

They use those cards because they are good... Why else would they put it in their decks?
Anoymous
Don't have union attack so I had to get creative. This gets me to 6000-8000 everytime ;)

1 x Blue eyes
1 x Paladin
1 x Piranha
1 x Gokipon
3 x Pinch hoppper
2 x Dian keto
2 x Supremacy Berry
2 x enemy controller
1 x Gift of the martyr
1 x Secret passage
1 x White dragon ritual
2 x Rising energy
2 x Straight Flush

Anoymous Reply
Basically you set one flush and one rising energy on your 2nd last turn. Then on your last turn you destroy his backrow with flush. Normal summon piranha and special summon Blue eyes with paladin ritual summon. Use gift of the martyr on your Blue eyes with Piranha and rising energy. That'll get you to 5300 atk and 10600 direct attack.

I use this Deck with a BUG to farm Bakura . 7.500 ++ W/ your best Fusion monster( my best fusion monster is 3.500 )(sorry for Bad english xD ) why is the bug? the bug is Pinch Hopper , Bakura NEVER atk Pinch Hopper(He only attacks when he wins the game) i use skill Draw Earth monster 1500 or less to catch
Pinch Hopper. And on the field, you can use any field that you have and the Equipment can also be anyone and healing cards can also be anyone, as Bakura uses a Magic spell that allows him to attack directly (he uses 2 copies).

2° list is for is "budget":
Skill : Destiny Draw
fusion monster Twin-Headed Thunder Dragon(use you best fusion monster, i use T-H TD for Budget)
Cat's Ear Tribe + Any Equip to locked Bakura

Great advise! Thanks!

I feel that Konami is actively looking for current farming methods and intentionally countering every single one of them.

Just got beaten up by Lvl 40 Bakura. Man, I bet whoever choose his deck is a freaking sadist.

It's funny how they added all these cards to counter the destiny draw farm method just to piss people off.

Bakura IS a sadist. Well at least he don't use out of character cards like Sphere Kuriboh, Soul Exchange and Enemy Controller. The deck suits him better compared to last event.

Order to charge is crap compared to tribute of doom. I wish they gave him order to charge instead!

With cerberus & vassal deck, 2 Ryoroku field, 2 mirror from Odion, , put magic cards to avoid nobleman of extermination, use storm in last turn with a field card if he has 3 cards... Destiny draw OTK, not so easy to use, and he has a lot of "luck" to counter fast the strategy.

I am getting 7600 max because I don't have enough glowing/refractive cards, and his trap card make risky, almost suicidal, to get 100LP
Anoymous
Confirmed he will be back with new rewards on the 11th!
Virtus
The only card I don't have 3 copies of is White Magical Hat, but leveling up Bakura gets you a copy of that so I'm officially done with this event. :)
Anoymous
Do you think they will do this event again?
