Elements Unite! (8,000 +)

Very fast and easy farming deck! Also good to get Paradox Brothers exclusive drops skills. You can use Piranha Army instead of Gravekeeper's Vassal if you don't have Union Attack. For how to use this deck, check the link below.


Summon Gate Guardian right away. Don't destroy Yami Yugi's monster, and don't summon or set any other monster with low attack unless you plan on using White Elephant's Gift right away. Yami Yugi's Phantom Beast Rock-Lizard will destroy it, inflicting 500 damage to you and lose you the duel. Pass the turns and use the draw cards, perform fusion summon and setting at least 1 Spell Reclamation before the last turn. You can use any normal monster that you have, it doesn't need to be glossy.

Summon unhappy girl as soon as you can, and pass the turns to stall the duel. Get BEUD out before the last turn and leave a monster slot open for vassal. Use vassal and union attack combo on the last turn.

If you don't have union attack, you can use Cu Chulainn with Blue-Eyes White Dragon, ritual weapon and riryoku instead.

Cerberus deck (5,000 - 8,000)

Obtainable score6,000 - 7,000

Essential cardsMythical Beast Cerberus


  • 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.
  • 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.

Why not Draining Shield instead of Javelins?

Draining Shield stops the attack and u need to take damage to use the skill
I got Dark Magician Knight but no Knight's Title ;-;
On the cerberus skill set, it said that you could use sorcery conduct to use cerberus against Yami Yugi. Isn't Yami Yugi the only one that learns sorcery conduct? And if so, I don't think you can have Yami Yugi vs Yami Yugi as a gate battle.

You can use joey wheeler if he has draw sense light
I use cerberus to farm Yami Yugi, but I do it differently. I summon gravekeeper's vassal on the last turn and do the secret pass + union attack combo. Most of the time I need draw sense light to trigger before I can get a cerberus in my hand.
Yami yugi lvl 40 farming
i think it will more interested when i can fight my own deck, just to make sure anyone have same idea. becouse fight legendary duel with same card deck without customization make me bore, repeat deck and i win, at all

You don't have to get a high rating, higher ratings just give you more drops, thus a higher chance of getting the rarer rewards
Dark Paladin works as well
If you plan in using the Elements Unite Deck, use a fusion monster with at the least 3150 Attack cuz Yugi Phantom Beast Rock-Lizard can get powered to 3100 and will kill you.

Yeah, I've seen him do that at lv. 30 with the Book of Secret Arts, too. He sure loves books! And the moon. I wouldn't be surprised if they made him use a Book of Moon for some event or something.
