How to farm Lvl 40

Unlocking Tips

Spirit Ryu (6,000 - 7,000)

Notice: Spirit Ryu no longer works as of version 1.3.0

Use the Draw Sense: Wind to get Spirit Ryu and use them to stall the turns. Most of Odion's monsters don't have high attack so you can summon BEWD, or Cu Chulainn with at least 2 Ritual Weapon early in the duel. Keep clearing the field of his monsters until the last turn. Use Riryoku to increase Cu Chulainn's attack, use his effect and put more Ritual Weapons. Get the BEUD to destroy the leftover monster, if there are any, and do a direct attack using Cu Chulainn.

Alternatively, you can keep passing the turns and summon Cu Chulainn on the last turn. This is so that you can use Secret Pass to the Treasures before increasing his attack so you can do direct attack.

Note: Make sure to at least keep 1 Spirit Ryu for the sacrifice for the ritual summon to get Cu Chulainn out.

Using a Cerberus deck against Odion can be kind of risky. If you happen to get second turn, Odion can set Embodiment of Apophis and a monster on first turn, on the third turn he will have 3 monsters out which can already kill you. You will have to rely on a bit of luck to either get Cerberus in your starting hand or get traps like Enchanted Javelin or Windstorm of Etaqua to survive.

Level 40 Odion's deck



High defense "castle" monster

The 1930 DEF of Castle of Dark Illusions is very high among low level monsters, and Axe Raider or Battle Ox, twi monsters having the highest ATK at 1700 among currently available low level monsters for players, cannot defeat defeat the Castle unless they equip attack boost spell cards.

Special summoned trap monster

Since Embodiment of Apophis are special summoned and can be tribute, they help Odion summon high level monsters.

You should add that one of his monsters makes you discard a card if they attack. So you have to be careful that he doesnt discard a card that you need

I think yugi Power of Dark with Strong spellcaster like Dark Magician Girl and Dark Magician with some Atk 1600 spellcaster will be enough to pulverize his deck. i finish him in the 6th turn. Put on some equip card and golden apple if you have one.

Thing is, the two decks posted here are for high scores. It's not like they posted any to beat Odion quickly.

This cerberus deck is not really good to farm Odion. Of you play first, you lose because of Aphosis and the fact that when he only have decayed commander, he will not do enough damage to make you draw Cerberus. Even if you did drew Javelins you will lose a lot of magic cards because of the decayed commander and you will did pitiful amount of damage, if you didn't even lose an important card like Stop Defense.
So overall, really hard to farm. You should pray to luck before going against him. You will need to play 2nd or have a good hand but not to good or else you will get discarded.
Cerberus is NOT a good deck to farm him, but well he does a lot of damage.

Have 3 cerberus. Use Mako's Balance skill. You will have cerberus in your hand on your first draw.

Maybe they can set up a rule where you can only use a maximum of 3 UR and 8 SR in a Deck.
