Should I get more than one of these for a Cerberus farming deck?
anoymous 1days ago
One cerberus is inconsistent imo. Sometimes the attack just don't reach 10k. I use two cerbs and a riryoku. Always gets me to more than 10k. 3 however is kinda unnecessary. You don't want to have 3 cerbs and 1 spell that you need to use only in the final turn in your starting hand...

if i have a spell that can get activated multiple times (i.e. card trader) will cerberus get bonus damage every time it gets activated or only when it is first set?

How can I stack the spell counters damage increase effect without it dropping to 0?

Other question... Is the skill "Balance" useful if you have 3 cerberus in your deck? Will you get one in your first hand everytime? =)
anoymous 2days ago
"Balance" works with percentages. Each card in your opening hand represents 25% of your deck. In a 20 card deck, that equals 5 cards. So you want 15 spell cards, 3 Cerberus cards, and 2 creatures/traps that help you stall or get Cerberus in your hand faster. With that setup, there's a 60% chance that Cerberus will be in your opening hand. For the other 40%, you'll get one of the 2 extra cards.
Shin_no_Senshi 18days ago
I think my cerberus deck is quite complete I score between 7k to 8k. But there is only one cerberus in it, do you think 3 is the best way to maximise the chances of getting it without dying 1 of 4 times? Same question, is it better with 2 riryoku? =/
lum0k 29days ago
is there other skills we can use to get cerberus only Weevil lv 13 and yugi lv 20?
anoymous 29days ago
You can also use Draw sense Light but you can only get it as a random drop, if you have 3 ceberus and 2 spirit yu you can use balance from Mako lv 20

It might be not too important, but Wonder Wand is better than Book of Secret Arts. It's only 200 Atk, but can make all the difference sometimes.
Shin_no_Senshi 18days ago
... oh and I forgot Sword of the Deep Seated works too ;-)
Shin_no_Senshi 18days ago
Agreed, sometimes it's just a few points you lack to make 10.000 damages ^^ You can use several cards different than Wonder Wand : Black Pendant +500 Grarl +500 Stim-Pack +700 (use it as the last one) Take a pick! =)

Hey card trader #freemyniggacerberus
ryan 1/1/1970

is it skills?
Crisalid-X 1/1/1970
PS: lol "cereberus"
Crisalid-X 1/1/1970
Yup, need to equip the skill
anoymous 1/1/1970
You may not have equipped the skill then LOL
anoymous 1/1/1970
Consult your mom.
Adam 1/1/1970
Hopefully he comes back to the card trader soon!
anoymous 1/1/1970
waiting for almost 12 days and it still haven't come back yet. AGHHH
anoymous 1/1/1970
if i activate wonder balloon on the field, do cerberus effect activate as well?
anoymous 1/1/1970
No. It stacks.
anoymous 1/1/1970
No, cerberus gets the spell counter when you activate the balloons from the hand to the field but using the balloons effect by discarding cards won't increase the number of spell counters on cerberus
KIR1N 1/1/1970
WTA, "If damage calculation is conducted involving this card, remove all Spell Counters from it at the end of the Battle Phase" can help explain sir? i use a spell card it raise the atk of cerberus but, at the end of turn it turn back T.T
anoymous 1/1/1970
Jesus Christ, every time i see someone ask a question about duel links they just get bombarded with hate, can't people just tell them the answer without telling them to kill themselves.
anoymous 1/1/1970
No excuses, the commetor is really dumb. Stop spoonfeeding/babying dumbasses. It won't help them to learn and get better in life.
anoymous 1/1/1970
Yugioh is a very complex game, so not everyone will understand it right away. Have you KYS yet anon? Cause that's what I would recommend
anoymous 1/1/1970
Try to be a bit understanding. Fucking cunt KYS
anoymous 1/1/1970
It means as long as you dont attack with him it will stay boosted but wen u use him to attack it will go back to normal
anoymous 1/1/1970
are you stupid? attacks proc the damage calculation. that resets the spell counters. so if you don't attack you save up the spell counters.try to read before you ask retarded questions dumbass.
anoymous 1/1/1970

KoezH 1/1/1970
been wandering for this card, cerberus attack will be increased for everytime spell card activated, but as i know that we can't put too many spell cards to begin with, so i don't think cerberus effect are that great.
but considering its popularity and high use rates (someone even able to increase his attack above 10k) can anyone explain how to do that? (10k attack thing) maybe use spells rotation (active, back to deck, reactive etc)

4 starred ladybug of doom can easily wipe cerebus.
Anomymous Cheese 1/1/1970
This card is NOT used to fight strong opponents, but rather to get high assessment score after a fight, which will end up earning you a lot of bonus items. HOW TO DO IT? FIGHT with the LV10 Legendary DUELISTS who usually use weak monsters w/1000TAK. This way you can add as many as 14-16 Magic cards and still manage to win
GameA1 1/1/1970
Hi KoezH, To answer your question, I attach a video my friend made. Hope that helps you use this monster.

as usual. no gems for every maintence, unlike other games :(
You need to adjust your thought. Because the AI seems to know what you wanted the most and decide...
i am so upset that yugi muto didn't drop even 1 union attack but i have been fighting lv.30 ...
I see this more of a Zombie type rather than Fiend type.
