How to use this deck

Goal

  • To increase the ATK of Mythical Beast Cerberus to over 10,000 attack.
  • To decrease your Life Points to below 1000 or 100 whenever possible.
  • To deal more than 10,000 damage when you have 0 cards left.
  • To get 5000 - 8000 score. Improve your score by using glossy and prismatic cards for additional assessment points.

1. Receive an attack to get Cerberus

To get Mythical Beast Cerberus from your deck, use either "Sorcery Conduit" or "Draw Sense: Low-Level". Both skills are similar and they require you to receive at least 1800 points. You can use cards like Enchanted Javelin for some protection. After taking 1800 damage, a button will show up during your draw phase if you want to use it.

Some Legendary Duelists often start with monsters that won't deal 1800 or more damage, if you have cards that can reduce your LP like Abyssal Designator on your first turn, you can use it to ensure that you can activate the skill next turn.

  • Even if you have Cerberus in your starting hand, take the first hit if you want to adjust your Life Points to 100 to get the "LP on the Brink" assessment. Unless you use cards that can take you to 100 LP from 4000.
  • Recover your LP if you think you will take damage more than your current LP, use a Blue Medicine or any other healing card. The damage you take will still count towards the required damage for the skill to activate.

2. Grow Cerberus & make your Life Points 100

Place Spell counters on Mythical Beast Cerberus by activating Spell cards, and adjust your Life Points to 100.

The combination

You can get your LP from 4000 to 100 by using Blue Medicine, Mooyan Curry to get 4600 LP. Then 3 cards that reduce your LP by 1000 and then Autonomous Action Unit, or 4 cards that reduce your LP by 1000 and use a Twister.

Use Enchanted Javelin to maintain 4000 LP and still be able to activate skill to draw a Cerberus.

  • Keep equip spells in your hand until you summon the Cerberus. You cannot activate Spell cards if your three spell zones are filled, but you can use a Gravity Axe - Grarl early to lock your opponents in defense position.
  • If your opponent has cards that can inflict effect damage to your Life Points, don't lower your LP early in the duel. Instead, use it on your last turn when you are left with 0 cards in your deck.
  • Combo
    By using Murmur of the Forest, you can re-use a field spell so you can activate it again for another counter to Cerberus. Alternatively, you can use Sword of Deep-Seated and twister it to re-use the effect.

3. Dealing the damage

When you have 0 cards left in your deck, and used up all your spells, you can attack your opponent by using Stop Defense on one of your opponent's defense card and then use Riryoku to increase Cerberus even further. Afterwards, equip Shooting Star Bow - Ceal on to that reduced monster's attack. If you used your stop defense earlier, then you can equip the Ceal bow to your Cerberus to be able to direct attack.

Essential cards

CardRating explanation
Mythical Beast Cerberus
Mythical Beast Cerberus
This deck cannot be built without this monster card.
*Note: It is fine to farm with this Cerberus deck using 1 Cerberus. However, with sufficient testing, it is more consistent to have 2 cerberus in the deck.

Other useful cards

CardExplanation
Yami
Yami
Can be replaced with any other field spell card. Murmur of the Forest allows you to use a field spell twice, giving you more spell counters.
Mooyan Curry
Mooyan Curry
This card, Timidity, Blue Medicine, and Abyssal Designator can be replaced with any spell card unless you aim to get "LP on the Brink" duel assessment.
Black Pendant
Black Pendant
Use any equip spell that can increase your attack by 500. Gravity Axe - Grarl can be helpful to lock their position, or Wonder Wand for a cheap alternative.
Seal of the Ancients
Seal of the Ancients
Can be a great alternative to Abyssal Designator to see your opponent's set cards and deal with them accordingly.
Hieroglyph Lithograph
Hieroglyph Lithograph
Lowers your LP and allows you to hold more cards so you can pass turns and use multiple cards easier.
That Wacky Magic!
That Wacky Magic!
Use Dark-Piercing Light and this card to clear your opponent's monsters to deal direct attack..

Performance against Legendary Duelists

High Score Cerberus deck can be used to farm most of the LDs, but there are some noteworthy things that you might need to remember when going against specific LDs.

Ones with a score of 1 means that you can't use a Cerberus deck against them.

  • Kaiba will use D.D. Warrior to banish your Cerberus if it does not have enough ATK to finish Kaiba's LP.
Joey Wheeler
Joey
3You need to deal with Time Wizard by using Abyssal Designator, Eatgaboon or House of Adhesive Tape.

Just at a glance I'd get rid of Burning Land and replace it with a Murmur of the Forest or two. Personally I prefer using either Big Bang Shot or Fairy Meteor Crush over the bow equip card. In that deck you don't really need Vassal and take out Spell Reproduction. Throw in Pot of Benevolence if you want to reuse spells, and it can also double as a way to prevent your opponent from decking out.

Any suggestion for new players which means no Ultimate Rising pack?

I'm so addicted and I can't get the best cards for farm. WHY?!

I had to start over unfortunately so I'm in same boat as you. If you can't draw more cards since we don't have shard of greed cards, you can use Foolish Return/Pot of Benevolence to put cards back into their deck from the graveyard and give you more time to get your deck down. And Enchanted Javelin is easy enough to replace with any sort of healing spell or trap.

Seems to work against all lvls would include riryoku but I haven't come across it in card trader

Added needle ball to pay back the damage lost from shoorting star bow-ceal and if draw in first hand good for defence and dealing dmg to trigger draw skill
Vortex 25days ago
I usually replace 4 random spells in this deck with 1 Ritual spell, 1 Ritual monster, 1 Stray Lambs and 1 BEWD (Or any other high level monster) for extra points. Risky but works pretty well.

I'm new. Can somebody list out the card name on the updated list to this post?

Im losing so often and maybe someone can help me. I am using the exact same strategy aboce and read everything, but i still lose pretty often cause in really unlucky. 2 examples: 1. I start, i have no card to reduce my lp only blue medicine, i end the turn he summons rex 1600 atk, my turn i still dont get anything use blue medicine, end turn, he summons anpther rex and i lose. 2. Example: he starts, summons rex, my turn i have nothing except blue medicine, i use it. He summons the fusion monster and another monster and i use, thats not so common but the first example. When i start the round i alost always lose, what can i do?

Try using draw sense: light. The option to activate it triggers after only 1500 damage so it can be slightly more useful (especially in the situation you are describing).

This is my cerberus farming deck, Having 2 cerberus has shown a better consistency plus u can use riryoku on the weekest one to empower the other. Note that many cards can be replaced such as the field spell card for some other glosy or prismatic card. I'd say that its winning rate is about 80%. Nevertheless, u Should change some cards to beat Joey or kaiba lvl 30
