Gren Maju Da Stromberg: deck recipe [Nov 2019 Updated]

Duel Links Breaking News
Structure Deck EX: Gladiator's Storm
update 11/11/2019


Now that we have three copies of Gren Maju Da Eiza available, this deck has significantly improved, having a more reliable alternative victory condition that might actually present itself multiple times after it has already been dealt with. Pumpkin Carriage and Gren Maju da Eiza being Level 3 allows this deck to run Psychic Wheeleder together with a pretty threatening Extra Deck, giving it a lot of versatility that it was previously lacking.

How to Use

Golden Castle of Stromberg

Once per turn, Golden Castle of Stromberg allows you to Special Summon from your Deck a monster that specifically lists “Golden Castle of Stromberg” in its text. Use this effect to Special Summon Prinzessin or Glife the Phantom Bird. If you do activate this effect, you can’t Normal Summon or Set during this turn and you can’t activate another Golden Castle of Stromberg to Special Summon another monster either.

If an opponent's monster declares an attack while Golden Castle of Stromberg is face-up on your side of the field, that monster is destroyed and your opponent takes damage equal to half its ATK. Since this is a Continuous Effect, Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon and Armades, Keeper of Boundaries are not able to prevent it, but it’s also true that the Field Spell does not negate the attack, which means that, if your opponent has an Ancient Gear Fortress and Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon was Summoned during that turn, the monster will not be destroyed, your opponent will take no damage and the attack will go through.

During your Standby Phase, Golden Castle of Stromberg will banish the top ten cards of your Deck face-down. If you are unable to pay the cost, the Field Spell will automatically be destroyed and no card will be banished.

Prinzessin & Pumpkin Carriage

  • If Prinzessin is Normal or Special Summoned, it allows you to Special Summon a Pumpkin Carriage from your hand or Deck and then, if Golden Castle of Stromberg is on the field, you can equip a “Glass Slippers” to Prinzessin directly from your Deck.
  • Pumpkin Carriage allows Prinzessin to attack your opponent directly, it prevents your opponent from targeting Golden Castle of Stromberg with card effects and Golden Castle from being destroyed by them. Your Field Spell can still be banished and, if you don’t have enough cards left in your Deck to banish, it will still destroy itself during your Standby Phase.

Glife the Phantom Bird

You can Special Summon Glife the Phantom Bird from your Deck via Golden Castle of Stromberg’s effect or simply Normal Summon it. If it’s Summoned, Glife will allow you to target and destroy a card in your opponent’s Spell & Trap Zone.

By discarding it, Glife the Phantom Bird also allows you to search Golden Castle of Stromberg, which is, as you may have already noticed, quite an important card. Glife notably increases the consistency of this deck while also providing situational back row removal.

Gren Maju da Eiza

Gren Maju da Eiza’s ATK and DEF are equal to the number of cards you have that are removed from play. During each of your Standby Phases, Golden Castle of Stromberg will banish ten cards from the top of your Deck, increasing Gren Maju’s ATK and DEF by 4000. Being able to Normal Summon a monster with 4000 or 8000 ATK and DEF, even if it has pretty much no protection, is nothing to scoff at. This Level 3 Fiend-Type monster represents an alternative victory condition that your opponent may not be prepared for, especially after dealing with Prinzessin and your Field Spell.

Psychic Wheeleder & the Extra Deck

Once per turn, if you control a Level 3 monster, you can Special Summon Psychic Wheeleder from your hand. You can Normal Summon Pumpkin Carriage or Gren Maju da Stromberg, Special Summon Wheeleder and Summon a Level 6 Synchro from your Extra Deck.

Alternatively, you can Special Summon Pumpkin Carriage via Prinzessin or directly via Golden Castle, Special Summon Wheeleder and Summon a Level 6 Synchro (using Carriage and Wheeleder), a Level 7 Synchro (using Prinzessin and Wheeleder), or a Level 10 Synchro (using Prinzessin, Carriage and Wheeleder).

Ally of Justice Decisive Armor

Once per turn, if your opponent controls a face-up LIGHT monster, you can target a Set card your opponent controls and destroy it, send a card from your hand to the Graveyard to destroy all Spell/Trap Cards your opponent controls, or send all cards in your hand to the Graveyard to look at your opponent's hand, send all LIGHT monsters in their hand to the Graveyard and then inflict damage to your opponent equal to the total ATK of the opponent's monsters sent to the Graveyard.

Even if your opponent does NOT control a LIGHT monster, which will likely be the case if you’re playing against Darklords, Ally of Justice Decisive Armor is still a 3300 ATK monster that can tie with or straight up get over mostly anything that’s relevant right now.

Black Rose Dragon

Black Rose Dragon is the type of monster that doesn’t really need an introduction: it can instantly reset the board and that’s exactly why it’s here. A Set monster and three Set Spell/Trap Cards? I’ll hit the big red button.

White Aura Dolphin

Even without a WATER monster in the Graveyard to banish in order to Special Summon it when it’s destroyed, White Aura Dolphin is still a really good Level 6 Synchro. Its ability to cut the ATK of an opponent’s monster in half is particularly good to close games or to just get rid of big threats.

Samurai Destroyer

Samurai Destroyer’s ability to shut down your opponent’s cards and effects is exactly what you need to close out a Duel sometimes.

Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier

Brionac, Dragon of the Ice Barrier is a new Level 6 Synchro from the 24th Main Box: Aerial Assault that allows you to return any number of cards your opponent controls to their hand by discarding the same number of cards.

Use Solemn Scolding to prevent your opponent from Summoning problematic monsters such as Shi En or Umastryx or to negate cards like Drowning Mirror Force and then activate your Skill to draw Gren Maju Da Eiza. You are going to draw Gren Maju Da Eiza before Golden Castle of Stromberg banishes the top ten cards of your Deck, so you don’t have to worry about randomly losing your secondary victory condition.

Sealed Tombs
Until the end of the opponent's next turn, neither player can banish cards from the Graveyard or Special Summon monsters from the Graveyard. This skill can only be used once per Duel.
Ishizu Ishtar
Ishizu Ishtar

This Skill is primarily used in order to prevent the opponent from activating Darklord Contact and swarming the field, but it’s also effective against Silent Spellbook (Spellbook of Fate), Triamid (Triamid Pulse), Six Samurai Synchro (Secret Six Samurai - Fuma), and Neos (Bacon Saver and Neos Fusion).


  • Pumpkin Carriage only provides protection for your Field Spell; Prinzessin and Pumpkin Carriage itself can still be targeted or destroyed by card effects.
  • Dragon Spirit of White and Cosmic Cyclone can banish your Field Spell and Neos Fusion, Diamond Core of Koa'ki Meiru and Ancient Gear Fortress can prevent your opponent’s monsters from being destroyed by its effect, letting their attacks go through.
  • Drowning Mirror Force can be used to punish you for attacking your opponent directly and set you back completely.

i recommend spell specialist to open castle more consistently
I still think Restart is the best skill for this deck given how if it opens without castle, bird or a wheeleder for synchro plays you lose
Incredible how it became a tournament winning deck, damn

That's what I've been thinking. It's surprisingly very, very strong. Not just a meme deck.

Gren Maju being a 4k beater after 1 round of stormberg is no joke.
Oml I love this deck. So many people playing the standard meta decks don't seem to know to play against it and just keep trying to run their monsters into Princess just to get blown up and either Maju or Decisive Armor to OTK next turn. Underrated masterpiece
nice deck name XD

I disagree. Their tier lists are awful but the informations on decks are extrenely valuable.
With up to 3 Gren Maju now available, looks like the deck could use an updated list

Don't mind me, I'm just dropping this 8000 ATK monster on the board as my Normal Summon.
