Funny guy.
I reached Legend 2 with Cyber Angels last season with meta full of Fur Hires and Amazoness. Buttfcked Fur Hires super hard.
This card and deck is still viable as well, even in combination with CA cards.

This card is hardly used and not much of a problem to be "limited".
Why does this card even says ''This card can ONLY be Ritual Summoned with the Ritual Spell Card, "Ritual of Destruction".'' When you also can summon it with ''Contract of the Abyss''. It is the same BS as with ''Zera the Mant''.

Because they work the same way as "This card can only be Special Summoned by" monsters (which are now worded "Must first be Special Summoned by"). Note that newer Ritual Monsters like Paladin of Dark Dragon and the Cyber Angels don't use that wording.

Note that all Ritual Monsters with strict summoning conditions (none of which are in Duel Links) were released well after that wording was dropped.

It's for simplicity. They ruled that the generic ritual spells like Contract of the Abyss and Sprite's Blessing can ritual summon ritual monsters of the correct attribute regardless of their real ritual spell.

Otherwise, they would have to reprint every single ritual monster of that attribute every single time they make a new generic ritual spell for another attribute.

That makes no sense, and a waste of resource.
theoretically, wouldn't this one OTK fur hire, combined with trunade?

This card cannot destroy Wiz with its effect, though. Wiz has higher DEF than this card's ATK.

Maybe it can in battle, if it gets enough ATK boost. But then you need another monster to finish the OTK.

You can summon it by tributing Idaten for 1000 ATK boost, also it gains 100 ATK for every monster it destroys (it also destroys your own monsters other than itself).
Its effect cannot be negated since it triggers on summon, so it nukes the field even if floodgated or canadiad.
Captain obvious
I run him with tyrant dragon, 2 flame ruler, pumpkin, sonic bird, senju, 2 kuriboh, 2 leotaur, 1 ritual raven, 1 dunames, 1 gravity axe, 1 metal morph, 1 contract fulfillment, 1 MW, 2 golden apples, 1 ritaul, 1 mask

No: besides that Ritual of Destruction specifically states the level you must equal or surpass (7), there's also a ruling that makes this also count for cards such as Contract with the Abyss. In other words: you always look for the original printed level, not whatever level it currently is.
can't destroy magician black chaos lol
I have a king of games tier garlandolf deck that I may share later but one tip I'll give you is that if you're trying to run him in a deck you need 3 and 3 senju. you need to be able to sacrifice him to ritual summon himself and then play another card preferably senju or sonic bird same turn right after to get the 1 turn knockout.

hey I don´t know if you came back to read this but I managed to get to KoG with a last gamble garlandolf deck with this:
2 garlandolf
3 sphere kuriboh (if you only have one get another seer as well as a windstorm)
2 djinn (3*)
1 seer
3 storm
2 ritual of destruction
1 dark piercing light
2 magic drain (can be swapped out for windstorm, smoke grenade, a 2nd dark piercing light)

no, the effect wrecks zera
Love to use this card, I always end up winning whenever I summon it. With his effect and the right cards you can get it to 3,000 att points at least. The highest I've gotten it to in a duel is 3,700.

Unfortunately a good ritual deck needs 3 Thunder Dragons, 3 Sonic Birds and 3 Senjus :(

you can still make a decent ritual deck with only 2 senju's and a kuriboh but it will mainly involve cards like crystal seer, gale lizard or burbonic vermin to stall until you get the ritual spell cards, you can use 3 copies of storm to synergize with 'ritual of destruction' in case you have multiple copies, dark piercing light also important, = clear backrow and front row
