Exodia cards

Tips

1) Gather every Exodia parts in your hand.

If one of them is missing, you will not be able to win as you do not fit the criteria of having all of them in your hand. This means that hand destruction and deck destruction cards will be very effective against Exodia-dependent decks. These include cards such as Abyssal Designator, Decayed Commander and Warm Worm.

2) Grab some cards that allow you to conveniently draw more cards from your deck

By drawing more cards, you will boost your chance in gathering all five Exodia parts as quickly as possible. Cards such as Skelengel and Shard of Greed may help to exhaust your deck.

I feel like this should have been a different type of event. For example, rewards for how many times you summon Exodia or something like that. After getting stuck in platinum and going back to gold I just made decks made to summon exodia and that was a lot more fun.
Rev 4days ago
Yeah, come on, no Exodia icon!? What a waste. Game mats and sleeves would have been cool too!
anoymous 5days ago
agreed. it would have been cool to have exodia themed card sleeves and game mats, if not some cool cards up for grabs instead of the usual gems.
anoymous 6days ago
WTF... New issue with this event. I can't summon a monster. Geez, something always happen when I'm about to rank up.
Could be a hack?

Can anyone tell me if Platinum also earns an icon?
anoymous 10days ago
I love when I get kicked out because 'connection issues' 8 times in a row without even starting the duel and I go down 3 ranks ¬¬
Gabriel 11days ago
Well just went from silver 4 to silver 1. I just lose non-stop.....This game is pretty much impossible to somebody like to who started like 3 weeks ago. I don't have any really good card. I was able to go silver 4 with my mimic, hamster, shard of greed, but now I think I lost 50 dual in a row.....Guess I'll stop pvp. Anyway does anybody know if this even gives anything at the end???
Kito 10days ago
I can't agree with that sry. I startet this game 10 days ago. Currently I'm level 41 and in plat. It's always important how much time you spend in a game. I don't think there is much we will get as rewards beside the symbols and the gems.
Nuttal 11days ago
I've been playing for 3 weeks too but i haven't battled in any pvp. Im at stage 37 and want to get at stage 50 and max out all my characters to get all the good cards. Then i could start using those gems to get even better cards.
IndoPRO 11days ago
some people just aim to win without summoning exodia... ah nevermind~~
anoymous 11days ago
Wkwkwk

Mystic Box + Magical Merchant= Good Bye Exodia
anoymous 11days ago
there's backup soldier u foolish
Rev 11days ago
I love this event! These are the fairest duels in the game so far and closest to the actual TCG.
Rev 11days ago
meaning skills are fun to use in PVP and the game but not always.
anoymous 12days ago
am I missing something or are the rewards for this event only just a few gems by ranking up?
anoymous 10days ago
Yea I don't see much point to it after getting gold 1. KOG isnt worth the 50 gems xD
PK 12days ago
gotta say, winning by collecting all the exodia cards is very satisfying
Anti-satisfying v2 12days ago
Never trying to get that exodia again and considering to sign out from life *creeper smile* :) (jk maybe from duel links tho)
Anti-satisfying 12days ago
When you are in a leading position the whole game and try to get all 5 parts and you have almost already won because you have 3 parts in your hand and last two parts are those last two cards that make up whole remaining deck and you have skelenger face down and opponent has his parts in graveyard already, but then your totally normal internet connection dies and you lose, then it's not satisfying.
PK 12days ago
just frustrating when the opponent doesn't play to win by Exodia but brings a regular deck with tribute summons pulverize you
anoymous 12days ago
Anyone gets the Exodia ICON ?

Maybe if we summon him 100 times ?
Macklemore the Dueli 12days ago
I use your Grandpa's cards
I look incredible
I've got this big ass deck
From that card shop down the road

Daemon Blitzkrieg 12days ago
Actually no. If you ditch the Exodia Head, that's game over by insect suicide.
How do you use this? 12days ago
Apparently I'm a moron that can't figure out how to use this skill or start this event -_-
PK 12days ago
when you go into online duels, don't select "Ranked Duels" (the 1st option) but "Special Duels" (the 2nd option)

They this again images won't post...

So close

How is Exchange not a thing!?
Spookontoast 13days ago
Exchange can work in an anti exodia deck, if your not aiming to get exodia yourself then there's no harm in losing a piece however it will completely ruin a deck which pure win condition is exodia.
anoymous 13days ago
He means the exchange spell to trade a card from each other's hand, not soul exchange for the tribute. Two different cards. But like the guy above said, the opponent can just take your own pieces. So you'd have to have no pieces in your hand at all.
anoymous 13days ago
Of course Exchange will do a thing, it let you steal one exodia part from the opponent's hand, the downside is the enemy can also take one of your exodia's pieces so it is kinda a gamble. also Froggie you are talking about Soul Exchange, different card
Froggie 13days ago
Exchange will do nothing. This is not about tribute summons. You don't "tribute" Exodia pieces, you collect them. This is about collecting or preventing the collecting of Exodia.
