I am new to the game. I have two questions regarding this character.

What are the best ways to level up this character?

What the best deck recipes for this character as you go through (Levels 1 - 40)?
So i just hit a guy direct atk with 2 of my sacred phoenix and did 4800 dmg, but instead his LP stayed at 1 point. What the hell is this, some skill he has or what?

his skill named grit..stops him from going to 0 lp..the effect varies
Yeah, Red-Eyes Black Metal Dragon isn't that good, but it's a funny tech. You have Red-Eyes equip with Metalmorph and a Spirit set from last turn, use Red-Eyes Black Metal's special summon, then Spirit to get Red-Eyes back.

and if you have one red eyes, u tribute Red eyes, SP summon metal dragon, activate Red eyes insight and red eyes Spirit and you have 2 Red eyes black dragon + 1 Metal dragon :D (if Konami add foolish burial, the red-eyes decks 70% completed) i wait for The red stone of legend
Finally from Lvl 30 Tea
