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.

To those who can do it, make a balance deck and not a draw sense light/sorcery conduit one.. I have a 8k score and 100% winrate on this guy since I'm using Balance with 3 cerb and 2 unhappy girls. The only thing is that the game is giving me a big finger by not dropping anything but mummies and dammed R goblins xD

Datty 8days ago
I'm starting to hate this guy - farm him, consinstently win and still not a single Recruiter. And I'm hoping for 3?! At least he is easy, not like Kaiba, but come on, give something.
Meruem 10hour ago
I have a 100% 8k winrate on him... I've spent around 700 keys and got 0 skills and 0 Sr (I'm trying to get last recruiter)... Then I had the keys for the last duel and this guy dropped me 2 Sr in a row.. A dammed mummy and a trap card... I'm sooooo tilted ahaha
nipp0 8days ago
Me too. I had farm him for 2 weeks. Average point for 6,000 per match. And got only 2 SR which not recruiter from him... just wonder is it bug or not? PS. My stage is 34. It low but I think it should has better prob to acquire the SR cards.

anoymous 10days ago
No and you spelt anoymous wrong.

Agreed. Cerberus does work perfectly for 6k-7k, still he dropped 0 SR in 10 duels.

Odion will not drop super rares. This is direct political bullying against my kin.
anoymous 15days ago
Hundred time farming this guy, never drop millenium scorp once
anoymous 15days ago
They made it so Cerberus will not yield rares or super rares.
anoymous 16days ago
Do not farm him with Cerberus. His decayed commander card can discard a very important card in your hand
Happy Chin 19days ago
Leotaur is the best card
anoymous 20days ago
Con esta base llego a los 8000 puntos
anoymous 21days ago
Is it just me or hes a little bit harder to farm now? I used to drop SRs from him easily but now it seems to be hard to drop
anoymous 19days ago
He is is more difficult to farm now. I agree. Cerberus does not have a high win rate like it did before the patch.
To add 1/1/1970
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
