OtherRanked Rewards [UR]





  • Clears the entire field, possibly turning the duel around when going against difficult enemy.


  • Low attack when not a lot of cards on the field.
  • Leaves you open after your attack.

Tips, related cards, skills

  • Paying the Life Points will enable draw skills like “Draw Sense” or “Destiny Draw” for your next turn.
  • Recommended to use when your opponent’s LP is low enough to be killed from the attack.
  • Cost Down to reduce the amount of sacrifice needed for tribute which can be good to increase attack if you have more than 1 monsters.
  • Gandora can be tribute set on the field and changed to face up defense position using Desert Sunlight which will not be considered as normal, flip or special summoned so it will not be destroyed in the end phase of that turn.

Hey guys I'm playing the game for two weeks and I've just unlocked Yugi and when I read GANDORA text I found it's like another monster than the anime version, it destroys spell/trap and gains atk points to atk !!
so are all cards diff from the anime ??

In this case, Gandora sucked hard in the anime, and was made to suck slightly less here. (But still kinda suck.)

Wait until they give us Gandora-X and Gandora Giga Rays. They're so much better.

Unfortunately I don't think we'll get them. Gandora-X is too OP for DL format, but Gandora Giga Rays requires us to have Gandora-X as well for its "3" effect, since it asks for 3 different names.

So the most likely thing to happen is that we don't get both of them.

Yes, it does work with Recurring Nightmare.
There is one NEVER ENDING destructive combo with this guy, I've seen it from guns!, quite an interesting card.
Anyone mind telling what deck I should make with Gandora and tell me every card I should get.
Guys I found an idea to make infinite loop,first,you must have Paleozoic on your side of the field(those cards are trap card so they can be a monster when they are on graveyard and another trap card is activated),then you can summon gandora with mausoleum of emperor,finally activated gandora effect,so Paleozoic is unaffected by effect of any monster they still on field and you can activate gandora effect again to make infinite loop

It can't be special summoned with mausoleum of the emperor.

Maso isnt a special summon. This combo does work. See Gunsblazings video on it for proof

That's useful if you want to get down to 1 LP for whatever reason, but it only gains ATK for the cards that it destroys, so if you don't destroy anything, it won't gain any ATK.
Wouldn't Forbidden Chalice also prevent it from killing itself?

It would, but it will also lose the ATK it gained, which isn't ideal.

Dimensionhole would be a better way of going about it, so you don't leave a 0 ATK in Attack Position.

Why not just use acces denied skill
So I faced Yugi Mutou in plat, then he summon Gandora and activy the effect and gain 1600 or 1800. In my hand only have swift gaia fierce knight. It attacked me directly. Then my turn i draw enemy controller, I set it so in normal situation I can summon swift gaia, but i cant. So is bug or other effect of Gandora?

Confirmed Access Denied skill since it does not allow you to Normal/Special summon Effect monsters nor use their effects. Your Swift Gaia is effect monster so, yep.

Maybe he have Access denied skills, used after activate gandora effect

Yugi muto uses the skill access denied which states that neither player cant summon an effect monster and effects of effect monsters are blocked, for one turn.
Including effects of effect monsters that activate in the hand.

You had enemy controller in your hand

make this special summon, or this cards is keep stay as shit crap, look at meta deck better, no one uses this dragon crap.
Random question... when gandora activates its effect..can econ be chained ?
So can Slifer the Sky dragon be destroyed by Grandora's effect?Because effects dont work against Egyptian gods right?

Gandora's effect can destroy Osiris, as Osiris (and Ra!) in the effect version lacks the god status immunity.

Obelisk randomly has the immunity for whatever reason, but even then, it's only targeting immunity, Gandora's effect does not target and will destroy Obelisk.
Battled him 13 times no sr or ur with scores like 6000 . Wish I had the seal of oricalco to wack that Mf
