Elements Unite! (8,000 +)

Now farming Gravekeeper's Recruiter will be more consistent with the help of the Paradox Brothers, you can check more details and information regarding the deck by clicking the link below!


Odion's highest defense monster is a Giant Axe Mummy with 2000 Def. However, it can't do anything after you special summon your Gate Guardian, you don't have to attack or destroy any monster he summon, just continue stalling turns and wait for your draw engine cards like a normal monster White Elephant's Gift combo, Shard of Greed or Jar of Greed, to get your final turn combo pieces. This way you can easily achieve 8000k+ duel assessment.

Summon the unhappy girl, or rai-mei if you don't have her, and pass the turns to stall the duel until you can perform the gravekeeper vassal and union attack combo. Once you summon the unhappy girl, set rai-mei again once you have enchanted javelin to raise your LP. This will make sure Odion won't attack, otherwise pumpking with castle of illusions to deal more than 5000 damage with 3 monsters.

Similar to the method above, except this uses Cu Chulainn as the finisher. Use the greed and defensive cards to help with the early draws if you don't get unhappy girl or rai-mei. Stall the duel and raise your LP using enchanted javelin until you can perform the combo.

  • 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 can't. Unless you are satisfied with 3k points...
how can i farm him using joey with no skills
I'm annoyed I put money into this game and I can't even access the cards I want/need to beat even the standard duelists! Wonder balloons, enchanted javelin, etc why not at least offer better cards or the same ones through the card trader or by leveling up/deafeating LD's???

At least you had a chance of making more money by keeping ultimate rising in the shop...

Or those cards listed in "Best Cards to Counter Odion"? Ignore that list. Those are not useful for farming. And there are list of cards that can do similar/ better than those in new packs.

Or you mean The Ultimate Rising in general? The only irreplaceable and gamechanging cards are Order to Charge, Sonic Bird, Fusion Gate, and Mask of the Accursed.

Hell yeah,
prismatic recruiter..
There is a way better way to use cerberus deck, with 3 cerbs + 2 unhappy girls and Balance. If u do a 20cards deck, u'll be sure to have a monster in ur hand, so if unhappy, stall till cerbeeurs comes out, either way it's okay and grow ur cerberus uyp

Anoymous Reply
actually there's no need for unhappy girls, if you already got 3 cerbs with the Balance skill. Since you will get one cerb for sure with the skill by 20 cards.

pls run unhappy girl Reply
Lol no. I've tried only 3 cerbs so many times and I learned the hard way that Cerb is not guaranteed. You NEED extra 2 monsters. You can get Cerb in your starting hand, but the probability is only 60%. Not worth your keys. Balance skill runs by simple math. If you have 10 monsters in 20 card deck, you'll get 2 monsters in your starting. If you need only 1, you need at least 5 monsters.

The recommended cards are not even useful. Hell, even the recommended decks are shaky. Everyone knows that. This post is way outdated. You're either looking for a point to complain at a wrong place, or you're so damn stupid, or both.
