Duel reward tier list

What is duel reward card?

Duel reward card is one of rewards, including drop skills, stones, and jewels, for winning a duel. What card you can get is different by which legend duelist you win a victory over.

Evaluation criteria

Staple and versatile cards that work well in any kinds of decks are on a tier list here. That means the best reward cards to build a deck with a specific theme will differ from the list.

I can only get the cards that everyone drops I never get the cards that each individual gives out, do I just have bad luck or is there something I'm not doing

You have to face the LD's at level 40 to get their specific cards everytime

"Those two Gravekeeper's cards are necessary to build Gravekeeper's deck, but that deck is not very powerful."

This stuff needs updating hahahahah

I feel like Weevil should be rated higher now. Grasschopper is a pretty good reward.
anoymous 1/1/1970
There is a mistake in the description for S-rank Joey Wheeler. Metalmorph is also obtained by leveling Bandit Keith, not Joey.
anoymous 1/1/1970
The section is about Duel Rewards, not Level Rewards.

yea it says you get metalmorph from leveling up joey, but its bandit keith lV 25
Dodge 1/1/1970
Anyone got problem with LD stop appearing outside the gate.. It's been around 3 days now haven't found any LD roaming

I made a tutorial on how to farm Seto Kaiba using a specialized Cat's Ear Tribe deck I created. It's extremely consistent and is by far the best way to farm Kaiba right now.

I show the deck in the video and also an example duel of how to use it against Level 40 Kaiba. Hope this helps everyone:
Draco 1/1/1970
When you say farm. is it better to farm level 40 Kaiba, or keep fighting and spamming the level 10 kaiba? Assuming I am only aiming for light effigy
anoymous 1/1/1970
it has better drop rate and narrower card pool rewards, so lv 40 is still better imo
Andy 1/1/1970
Hello I have a similar question, if I want to get the UR for mako and isuzhu, should i keep farming lv 30 or 40? Is the drop rate for a SR or UR greater with lv 40 or the same as 30? since the SR and URs are the same pool in both level 30s and 40s (only the rares and commons are narrowed down). Please help. Thanks!
anoymous 1/1/1970
Do not use this deck! It's total crap. Very luck dependent. When you get lucky and win, you'll get 4000-5000 but chances are slim. I used up 600 white gate keys and only managed to win twice. If you can't get 2 cats on the field fast or draw the right cards to stall, you'll lose quick time. This deck should not be recommended on here.
anoymous 1/1/1970
Whoops, wrong tab. This was meant for the lvl 40 Kaiba deck farm.
anoymous 1/1/1970
um metalmorph can be gotten for leveling up bandit keith to lv 25 not joey
anoymous 1/1/1970
It's a level-up reward for Bandit Keith, but it's also a Victory Reward that you can get from Joey.
Fan 1/1/1970
If I am trying to farm twin headed king rex, should I keep vsing against Rex? Does the higher level increase the chances of getting the card? What is the score number needed to get Rank S Tier?
Darkstar 1/1/1970
If I need to win duels against legendary duelists to rank up, assuming I only challenge lvl 10s, who should I duel to preserve my keys?

So far I am doing Mako and Weevil
