  • Use Cards of the Soul and Different Dimension Capsule to search out Rainbow Dragon. You can also use Different Dimension Capsule to search out other useful cards.
  • Summon Sapphire Pegasus to search out Crystal Beasts from your deck.
  • The skill Trancendent Crystal is also for searching out Crystal Beasts from your deck. It is best not to discard or add Sapphire Pegasus to your spell/trap zone with this skill.
  • Remember to always leave 1 space open so you could use your spell cards.
  • Rare Value helps you draw cards and unclog your backrow.
  • Use Wingbeat of Giant Dragon to return Rainbow Dragon to your hand and destroy all spell/trap cards on the field. Remember there is no limit to the number of times you can summon Rainbow Dragon, so you can keep resummoning him from your hand.
  • After searching Rainbow Dragon and having your LP somehow decreased, you can still use Card of the Soul to try and search out a monster.
  • If you are dueling casual against random duellist, it is best to only use Different Dimension Capsule to search Card of the Soul to eliminate the risk of permanently banishing an important card if your opponent destroys Different Dimension Capsule.

I totally get it. I like them better in the Japanese version. Zane does have better clothes than Aster. (Does Aster even wear anything else besides that same outfit?) And I actually did not like Aster/Edo until after he lost to Jaden. Before that, I just thought he was kind of mean, and after he beat I was like, "Well, when is Edo going to lose?" Lol

I think Crystal Abundance will be unplayable because we only have 3 trap/spell zones not 4.

Bakura having a line for Destiny Board doesn't mean it's ever going to actually appear. Also, Dark Sanctuary is a card, and would (barely) allow it to resolve anyway. ;p

Data mining revealed voice lines for pendulum summons. How do you think they're going to pull THAT off without Master Rules? Heaven forbid they add Vrains content to the game like this...

I'd expect we'd get the Extra Zone mechanics before we get Pendulums. Either way, power creep'll probably make it more acceptable in the likely 2+ years it'd take before we get them. (We're still early into GX, which we got 6 months ago.)

As much as I love Crystal Beasts as an archetype, summoning Rainbow Dragon is almost impossible in this format. Magical Merchant and Grass ain't helping much...

Also, Jesse's exclusive skill is pretty underwhelming.

pls show me. I only got a crap crystal deck with grass where i could never play Rainbow dragon. For a monster that is so easy to overcome in this meta, the summoning is quite hard.

Great! Now convert all the cards into gold. But keep 3 copies of the cards that you won.
One just has to make a 30 card deck with the "Meet my family" skill, throw in some greener grass some cards that add GY monsters to the hand and Whoopsy Daisy u got yaself a fairly decent Crystal Beast Deck. I Think.

Cards of the Soul can potentially be used to search Rainbow Dragon before you begin the Great Mill(tm), but it's still highly gimmick. Rainbow Dragon is honestly not worth.

Agreed, rainbow dragon is useless when your opponent actived their reversed card like enemy controler etc.
Let's try predict his ultimate drop skills

Start the duel with rainbow dragon in your hand, like arkana. That´d be cool
<< Anonymous

Starting with Rainbow Dragon in your hand (unless it was a free card, not taking up one of your opening hand) would be TERRIBLE. It's useless early game, unless we get Rainbow Neos, which I doubt. The best you could hope for is something like Para & Dox's Elements Unite!. Aside from that, I don't think there's much that could make Rainbow Dragon worthwhile.

Rainbow neos is actually confirmed by a voice line for jaden

TONS of cards that will likely never exist in Duel Links have voice lines. Jesse has a line for Crystal Abundance (which you can't even use without Destiny HERO - Diamond Dude) and quite a few anime-only cards, for example.
luckily i farmed him the last even and pegasus is a reward in the event and level up charactere , farmed him with 9100 assessment for 80 duels , not a single prismatic pack

...You can use pretty much anything to farm Jesse, though. There's really no excuse for not being able to farm him in some capacity. (And no, a lack of Union Attack is not an excuse since Yugi's at the Gate...)

Bug or no bug last time I got hundreds of bonus R jewels thanks to that!
Why the hell is the cheating asshole Zane in this event? Worse, he’s only level 40, the most 🔥ous of all. Back then I made a deck specifically to beat him and he still cheats his way to victory 8 times out of 10. The same pattern continues now. Why is this 🔥 here again?

He never "changed back" from his Hell Kaiser persona really. He did start respecting his opponents again around the time of this Duel, though. He still clearly had a fairly aggressive personality in that particular duel (indeed, that intensity is why he was chosen for it), and mostly kept it until his body gave out.

yes but him score 10 gems

They completely removed Emerald Tortoise's battle position switching effect. I think that's the first time any card has had an effect completely removed or changed for Duel Links

It's an effect that would normally trigger during Main Phase 2, but they could've just made it happen at the end of the battle phase instead of completely removing it. Dang, they neutered the poor turtle

The royal curse a trap card, also has the text changed.
According to the Wikia, it should affect magic jammer. But your text in Duel Links prevents it from affecting magical jammer and other similar text.

Because without it you cant summon Rainbow Dragon

I'm surprised they removed it rather than just leaving it there. But removing it is better than editing it to function.

As for Curse of Royal... While my faith in my Google Translate interpretation skills is low, I THINK the newer (mid-2017) Japanese text of Curse says it only negates targeting effects. (I'd guess we'll get it soon in the TCG, probably the next tournament pack if I had to guess.)

It's always interesting when we get updated text in Duel Links that hasn't happened yet in the TCG. Masked Beast Des Gardius, for instance, has PSCT, even though it's never been reprinted in the TCG. And we got the name changes for Big Core and Muko/Null and Void before the TCG did, too. I still wonder where they source their text from since it's not the official database.
So, did RNG godess smile at you guys? I haven't farm much so I only have 2 rare value & 1 crystal promise. The other rewards were easy to get though

I still have only 2 Rare Value and the event ends tomorrow noon lol.

Then again, Jesse goes to the Gate soon. Rare Value will become farmable forever.
