Dude the Marik event ended today it didn’t start yesterday so that’s bs. I’ve been searching for 2 week to get this card from the trader. And never saw it at the trader so i think the guy who commented this comment is right.

Just got it from the Card Trader today, was quite thrilled to see it since I thought I had lost out on being able to get it.
Other question... Is the skill "Balance" useful if you have 3 cerberus in your deck? Will you get one in your first hand everytime? =)

"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.

You probably want to fill the 2 slots with unhappy girl, she won't get attacked unless your opponent has lethal. So balance 3 cerberus 2 unhappy girls is the best setup imo
Was this card changed from ultra rare to super rare? I seem to remember it being ultra rare. Thanks

Should I get more than one of these for a Cerberus farming deck?

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?

don't attack and don't be attacked
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? =/

Get 2 cerberus and 2 riryoku, it becomes really, really consistent.

Even if CA get nerfed, it will still be a top tier deck. The only nerf I see is either Dakini ...
Maybe as LDs but nothing else. Those aren't real cards
You'll need ra to obtain obelisk in the battle city event.
