Spirit Ryu (6,000 - 7,000)

Use the Draw Sense: Wind to get Spirit Ryu and use them to stall the turns until you are left with 0 cards left in your deck. Then perform fusion summon to get Ryu Senshi out, tribute summon Blue Eyes, and ritual summon Cú Chulainn the Awakened using Blue Eyes as the sacrifice. Use Secret Pass to the Treasures on Cu Chulainn before all other attack increase, then proceed to buff him and deal the finishing blow. This will give around 7000 points.

Cerberus deck

If you don't get Cerberus in your starting hand, set an Enchanted Javelin to make sure you don't take more than 4,000 damage. If not, then don't heal back the damage you received since you want to end the duel with 1,000 or below for low LP and comeback bonus pts. Keep using spells until you are left with 0 cards left in deck, then use Stop Defense so that a monster can be attack. Use Riryoku on it and equip Shooting Star Bow - Ceal on that monster as well.

You can also just equip Shooting Star Bow - Ceal to the Cerberus if your attack is over 10,500 to bypass enemies and be able to attack directly.
