This deck mostly focuses on using Gearfried the Iron Knight, and using the release restraint to summon Gearfried the Swordmaster so you can destroy your opponent's monsters.

How to use

Last Gamble

You can only use this skill starting on the fifth turn, but just because you can use it doesn't mean that you should use it right away. If you think you can survive the next turn(s), then it's better to keep getting more draws. This will allow you to get more cards to use later, or to use the skill, making you less reliant on the dice roll. You can manually flip summon Kotetsu or Crystal Seer to get the draws if your opponent doesn't attack them. You don't need to worry about losing the LP since the skill will make you drop to 100.


With its ability to destroy a monster, getting a direct attack becomes easier, which is why summoning him is the priority of this deck, but since he's the only strong monster in the deck, it comes with quite the risk as well. If you use Last Gamble to summon him, you might be able to get a direct attack, but that damage is not enough to finish off your opponent. You will have to save your equip to destroy another enemy on the next turn, or get iron knight out on the next. With only 100 LP left, you will have to consider summoning carefully when summoning iron knight, if your opponent has a monster with 1900 attack, then you can lose right away.

Alternative playstyle

Instead of Last Gamble, you can use this with skills like Duel, Standby!, or Reinforcements. Putting more equips and low level monsters to use them for, similar to the level 57 standard duelist deck Equip and Destroy.

Useful cards

Windstorm of Etaqua
Windstorm of Etaqua
Having more defensive options will allow you to manage incoming attacks. Letting certain ones go through so you can the turns and get more draws.
Sphere Kuriboh
Sphere Kuriboh
Similar to windstorm but only works for one monster, but this can't be negated, or locked by cards like Sergeant Electro, or Champion's Vigilance.
Release Restraint Wave
Release Restraint Wave
Can only destroy face down spell/trap cards so it doesn't work against cards like Mirror Wall, but it has a chance to destroy more cards than storm using only 1 equip card.
Spiritual Earth Art - Kurogane
Spiritual Earth Art - Kurogane
Can be used to protect your monster from targeted cards.
Mythical Beast Cerberus
Mythical Beast Cerberus
If you put more equip spell cards, then this is a good monster to use them with.


This is a much better updated version
Use duel standby or last gamble

simplify it further will get you better win rate your deck has too many win conditions which isn't great at all
Use warrior returning alive (crinmson kingdom) instead of monster reborn.
I like metalmorph in the deck, since it gives half of the targets attack and can also be activated in your opponents turn, enabeling you to destroy a monster that was summoned right away, before it can activate it's effect or whatever.
Material Transporter is a good option if you have to protect your Gearf. Swordsmaster from cards like relinq. Don't use D-Gate tho, since GF Swordsm. can't be special summoned like that, it will just stay banished.
Swords of tryce might not be super competitive, but can get you some fun OTK's ;)

*Interdimensional Matter Transporter
Forgot what it's called ^_^
Try this one. It reduces the bad luck when drawing.
I think a Last Gamble Deck, With deset Twister and Gearfried would be better
Try adding a few wind monsters like 4 star ladybug and adhesive explosive and throw in a desert twister
What's with the rise of usage in security orbs? e con is better and storm doesnt even trigger it...

Because one isnt a sr drop from a LD. No srsly did you really need to ask that question? Thats like asking why people use sonic bird over axe raider

Not a good comparison. Sonic Bird is used because of the 200 ATK/DEF pt boost from HHG

Not a good comparison either, sonic bird is for ritual deck, sonic DUCK is the one with 1700 atk.

Gee guys

Sleight of hand with Bandit Keith, gives you extra equips for sword master

Gives extra draws not really extra equips.

Anon 1: sleight of hand gives 7 completed, an equip for MACHINES
Anon 2: no, you're thinking of baggy sleeves which lets you draw 2 cards when a monster of 5+ stars is destroyed that you control
I am currently using a similar deck for all PVP duels, so far so good! I have 1 more swordmaster in mine thou and I added a sword of deep seated, that way can combine it with twister card for desired effect and you still have something to use for sword masters effect. I like the 2 black pendant idea thou!!
Did you guys like the conjuring? Man was that scary!
this deck very potential
I'm sure ma boi Bunsglazing created this deck

I really hope they add it with the same rules I would not mind different styles of gameplay.
I would not mind if Konami adds some racing elements but it will probably be for a new game mode ...
Finally a prismatic relinquished will be mine
