Note: This page shows how to beat/farm Yami Bakura Lvl 40 at Yami Bakura unlock event: Destiny Board of Doom. For Yami Bakura Lvl 40 at a mini event, check here!

Note: Temple of the Kings Glitch!

Temple of the Kings now has a glitch! The 2nd effect of it to special summon monster card can't be used. Even if you have a monster in your hand, deck, extra deck, you can't special summon a monster.

Should I farm Lvl 30 instead?

Yami Bakura Lvl 40 is the toughest Legendary Duelist ever. By using the event exlusive skill (Destiny Board of Doom), Ectoplasmer, and Burning Land, he never allows you to stall turns.

If you just aim to earn points:

It depends on your objectvie, but if you just want to earn event points, defeating Yami Bakura Lvl 30 with higher Duel Assessment seems to be reasonable. If you have a deck to achieve 5500 or above score consistently (80% win rate), farming Lvl 40 is recommended.

Yami Bakura Lvl 30

  • 6000 x7 x2 =42,000 x 2(20 Dice x2) = 84,000
  • 7000 x7 x2 =49,000 x 2(20 Dice x2) = 98,000

Yami Bakura Lvl 40

  • 2000 x18 x1 (40 Dice) =36,000
  • 3000 x18 x1 (40 Dice) =54,000
  • 5000 x18 x1 (40 Dice) =90,000
  • 5500 x18 x1 (40 Dice) =99,000
  • 6000 x18 x1 (40 Dice) =108,000

Des Counterblow (5k - 6k)

We do recommend you to win consistently with 5k-6k score instead of aiming 8k since Yami Bakura Lvl 40 is one of the hardest Legendary Duelist to farm. This is the best deck to farm Yami Bakura consistently so far.

Dino beatdown (2k)

This deck focuses more on beating Bakura's monsters with high attack monsters that you can summon easily. This is more aimed towards being able to win somewhat effectively rather than to aim for the highest possible score and delaying the duel to achieve that.

Balance beatdown (2k)

The goal of this deck is not to get a high score, but to win as quickly and consistently as possible. This deck is formatted to have an 10 monster cards, 5 spell cards, and 5 trap cards. Making use of the Balance skill, this should give you a starting hand of 2 monsters, 1 spell, and 1 trap. Take note that none of the monsters are required. You can replace any monster in this deck with a monster having 1700 or more attack points.

  • With a guaranteed spell card in your hand, and the fact that all spell cards in this deck are for removing cards from the grave, you should be able to remove Dark Necrofear from the grave in the first turn without any problem.
  • Prioritize removing Dark Necrofear from the grave using Gravedigger Ghoul or Foolish Burial within the first 8 or 9 turns, to cancel the effect of destiny board.
  • Do not allow Bakura to summon Dark Necrofear. What I do to prevent this is I activate Gravedigger Ghoul or Foolish Burial when he has 2 or more fiend-type monsters in his grave
  • Always declare fiend when The Hunter with 7 Weapons is summoned, almost all of Bakura's monsters are fiends. The only one who isn't fiend-type is Man-Eater Bug which shouldn't be a problem as long as you have more than one monster on the field.
  • Keep summoning your monsters to swarm the field. With this you do not have to worry about Man-Eater Bug. Ectoplasmer would also not be problem and might even work to your advantage.
  • Always use your higher attack monsters to attack set monsters. Bakura has many high defense monsters, like Malice Doll of Demise with 1700 defense and The Gross Ghost of Fled Dreams with 1800 defense. Use Metalmorph to boost your attack if needed. If you are unable to destroy Bakura's monsters, he may tribute into Dark Ruler Ha Des the next turn.
  • If ever your Bakura manages to summon Dark Ruler Ha Des you should be able handle him with your trap cards. Curse of Anubis would leave Dark Ruler Ha Des defenseless because of his 0 defense points. Metalmorph could be equipped to anyone of your monsters to easily overpower Dark Ruler Ha Des. Inspiration if used on a monster with 1750 or higher attack could give you enough power to match Dark Ruler Ha Des.

Dragon/Titan Showdown (3k - 4k)

With Rex's Titan Showdown skill, you will be able to achieve Over 5,000 Damage if you are lucky enough to draw fusion spell cards within 5 turns. For possible replacements, check the link below.

Duel Standby Burn (3k - 4k)

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.

Lvl 40 Bakura's Deck

The Evil Incarnate

Possible cards to counter

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.
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.
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.

Drops and Explanation

Archfiend Empress
Archfiend Empress
Can be fetch using Doomdog Octhros. This card will be a great addition for fiend type decks. Use its effect to along with Escape from the Dark Dimension.
Puppet Master
Puppet Master
It has the effect that can flood your board with strong beatsticks, however, it can be risky due to its ATK/DEF.
The Gross Ghost of Fled Dreams
The Gross Ghost of Fled Dreams
Along with Yugi's Power of Dark skill it has a staple 2000DEF.
Trance Archfiend
Trance Archfiend
It can discard Dark Necrofear to activate Destiny Board.
White Magical Hat
White Magical Hat
Even with its great effect It still hasn't found a place to any competitive deck due to its low ATK and DEF.
The Earl of Demise
The Earl of Demise
One of the few Normal monsters which needed just 1 tribute. Not being used to any competitive deck yet.
It can be special summoned again during your next standby phase in a scenario where it destroys 4-Starred Ladybug of Doom and its effect activates.
Electric Lizard
Electric Lizard
Prevents a monster from being able to attack for a turn and does not need to get destroyed for the effect to work.
Dark Mambele
Dark Mambele
Not viable so far in the current metta, it's hard to meet its condition.
Fiend Griefing
Fiend Griefing
This will be viable to FIEND type decks, since most of them has Graveyard enabaling effects. Also it's great to easily discard Dark Necrofear to activate Destiny Board.

1 Big Shield Gardna or 2 Power Injectors? (I already have 1 PI)

You are getting 1 cards vs 5 cards.
All the cards I mentioned have been rotated out.
You can't calculate their previous cost.
The previous cost are void.

You want more for your investment than less.
Thus, Big Shield Gardna isn't worth it!

However, It doesn't mean people can't get him.
Big Shield Gardna might have sentimental value to some people.

In addition, You got nothing for free.
The 200 EX points which you claim are "free" cost time!

You had to invest your time into unlocking those missions.
The same time could of been doing something else.

You can laugh.
However, It doesn't change anything.
My point of view is still valid.

I currently have exchanged EX points for the following cards:

1x Type Zero Magic Crusher
1x Darklord Marie
1x Goddess of Whim
1x Trance Archfiend

98 EX points remains

I plan on getting Bad Reaction to Simochi next.

From a collectors point of view this makes perfect sense.

Although from a competitive standpoint Gardna is the best card to get as the other are mostly useless.
not bad, i got the 4th Arcnefiend empress from bakura lv30.
sorry, if i wrong place to share this.
This deck nets me about 7k DA with only 5 glossy cards. You could add some more glossy to get 7k every time.
I use skill LP boost Alpha it prevent Bakura from use burning lands on you. Current 19-5 with this deck. Sry for my English.

This deck worl well. Fast result.

Win rate is about 70% (if replace 2 of jar of greed by double summon. Win rate should be about 90%)

Da is about 4800-6000+ depend on your glossy/prismatic cards.

I like that word... Die...
Among the decks posted here and in the comments, Buster Blader 3SD + Gravity Axe is the one with highest win rate imo. Maybe about 60% for me. Destiny Draw is about 20% win rate for me because my luck sucks and I do not believe in the heart of the cards.
Not bad...
Thx bakura

I will telll u the truth. This deck will give u more lose than win. However, if you win, you will get up to 100000 point each to complete the event. This deck can give u more than 9999 damage and card on the brink if you can pull 2 essential cards early. Also, no need to worry about board effect or ecto anymore since win or lose will be determine on your 3rd or 4th turn. Dare to play risky? Try this deck. =)

This works very well against Bakura. Give Aegis to him using Gift Exchange or Surprise Present skill, set Simochi and wait till Bakura activates the Aegis. Then use Rain of Mercy to finish him

Play risky is always the best. I spend whole weeks focus on collecting more than 999 dice before start my countless duel with him. And in 2 days, i complete this event. Good luck to you guys too.. =)
