Acid RainAcid Rain---Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon


  • Always declare Machine-type with Array of Revealing Light so that Vellian's monsters cannot attack the turn they are summoned.
  • Since Vellian's monsters cannot attack immediately, Guardian Statue and Medusa Worm will allow you to control the board by removing your opponent's monsters from the field when they are flipped.
  • Remember to always use their effects to flip them back face-down for reuse next turn.
  • Only have 2 Guardian Statue/Medusa Worm on the field at most. Reserve one of your monster zones for Gravekeeper's Vassal.
  • Sometimes Vellian will have more monsters than you can remove with your Guardian Statues and Medusa Worms, in this situation use Acidic Downpour or System Down to remove all Machine-type monsters from the field.
  • Before your final turn, make sure you either normal summon Gravekeeper's Vassal or tribute summon Mystical Beast of Serket while Temple of the Kings is on your field.
  • Send Mystical Beast of Serket and Temple of the Kings to the graveyard to special summon Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon
  • Remember to use Anti-Magic Arrows during your final battle phase to avoid Vellian's Zero Gravity.

  • The main strategy is using multiple massivemorph on Ancient Gear Golem so they cannot attack directly, then have them destroy Kiseitai so that you can you can heal your LP every turn equivalent to half their attack points. This will heal you so much that any other attack Vellian does cannot kill you.
  • Temple of the Mind's Eye turns any battle damage you will receive into 1000 points, helping you survive longer.
  • Good Goblin Housekeeping and Jar of Greed helps you draw out the cards you need.
  • It is best to use Curse of Anubis during the start of the battle phase when Vellian cannot summon anymore monsters and before he attacks with his ancient gear monsters with protection effects.
  • On the final turn, set a Temple of the Mind's Eye face down to destroy the current active one. Summon Cosmic Compass and bring out two other tokens and then use double summon to tribute into The Winged Dragon of Ra. Activate The Winged Dragon of Ra's effect to boost his attack and remember to activate Anti-Magic Arrows at the start of the battle phase.

The Regulation of Tribe (Destiny Draw )

Created by a famous JP Duel Links player, this deck locks down Vellian's Machine-type monsters with using The Regulation of Tribe trap card.

SkillDestiny Draw

Example deck

Black PteraBlack PteraBlack PteraGravekeeper's VassalUnion AttackUnion Attack
Enemy ControllerEnemy ControllerEnemy ControllerStormJam Breeding MachineJam Breeding Machine
Jam Breeding MachineThe Regulation of TribeJar of GreedJar of GreedWindstorm of Etaqua


  • The Regulation of Tribe is your main stall card. Search it from your deck with Destiny Draw. Always declare Machine-type
  • Now you will need cards you can continuously tribute to maintain The Regulation of Tribe. Black Ptera returns to your hand everytime he is tributed so you can use him as cost every turn, just remember to summon him. Jam Breeding Device special summons Tokens every turn that you can use as cost.
  • Use Massivemorph on Ancient Gear Golem so that it cannot attack directly, and to give it high attack for when you steal it later.
  • You can use Enemy Controller when stalling but remember to reserve at least one of them for your final turn.
  • On your final turn, use Storm to get rid of your Jam Breeding Machine and Regulation of Tribe along with your opponent's backrow, prioritize destroying Vellian's set spell/trap cards.
  • Use Enemy Controller to tribute Black Ptera or a Token to take the boosted Ancient Gear Golem.
  • Summon Gravekeeper's Vassal and use the 2 Union Attack on him.

  • Immediately Summon Gate Guardian by tributing the monsters you get from Elements Unite. Gete Guardian should be in DEF position first unless Crowler will attack you with his monster equipping Ancient Gear Tank.
  • The next thing you need now is to activate at least 1 healing card so that Crowler does not burn you to death with Ancient Gear Tank. Once you regain enough LP, it's better to switch the position of Gate Guardian to ATK.
  • Lastly, you need to equip Gate Guardian with at least 2 Horn of Unicorn so that Crowler cant overpower your monster, both in attack and defense position.
  • After that its now only a matter of getting to zero cards quicker. Use Shard of Greed for extra draw power. The combo of Gravekeeper's Recruiter and Wonder Wand to get 3 cards out of your deck. It is best to search out another Gravekeeper's Recruiter if possible to reuse the combo.
  • Remember to use Anti-Magic Arrows at the start of your final battle phase.

Thanks Mate

Will go for Medusa Control then
The Medusa control is surprisingly consistent. I literally never lose against crowler in the gate.
admitedly i've only tried once but the standard dark paladin deck for bastion also worked for crowler
you noob
this card is quite annoying and very disturbing when farming
<< Anonymous(you noob)

Even more annoying part is that Crowler runs 2 copies of this.....
horn of the unicorn alternative?
does the elements unite deck have high chance of winning?

nope eu deck is terrible, if you draw your healing he'll summon a 3600 atk gear golem and destroy your unbuffed golem, if you get your draw he'll tribute someone with the equip spell and do 600 damage, litterally 5% win rate at best
Is Crowler in the gate permanently?

Take a pvp or beater deck, take some damage (think it's 2000) and then summon your beaters to win

Kill him after your LP reach 1000 or less

All you need is to have lower life points than Corwler the turn before you win(Your Turn, then Crowler, again your turn and win), you can use any card to lower your points, heal Crowler, pay a cost etc.
Got a quick question for everyone, what's a good deck to use to unlock Crowler? A friend's having trouble (I already unlocked him via event, but she joined after the events) with the requirements.

If you can just be more honest and tell us it's YOU who's having a problem unlocking crowler, then I would have gladly helped you. Since you're so bent with preserving your image and reputation which doesn't even matter in this site where there's anonymity, I have to pass up on your question so you can learn one bit.

Considering the different missions you have to do in order to unlock him. You should just make several decks and try each one.

Since this "community" is so bent with critisizing others, I wouldn't admit anything to be honest.
To sorrel, I don't know which are the missions for unlocking him. But it's usually just playing around. For comeback victory, just use a pvp or beater deck, get some damage and then win

Lucky! I'm still trying to get Ultimate Ancient Gear Golem. I was wondering on the rarity of Prismatic drops cuz I pulled a Prismatic Dark Magician of Chaos
I modified turtle farm, to use against crowler. With some slight modifications, works well against joey, pegasus and ishizu. Just need to get spirit barrier and duck dummy in and, plus any card to help duck dummy have its gemini

Oh, so this is how Duck Dummy can be used... still, I think you might be better off replacing Duck Dummy with the Unhappy Girl or an indestructible Cloudian monster.

Cool deck! I optimised it a bit:

i.e. Soul Exchange to tribute the 3xMM'd AGG for Catapult Turtle and only 1 Duck Dummy with Draw Sense: Low-Level. Lets you fit in more protection/gloss (super rush).

A tip btw, the Temple is there so you can play around him tributing a Massivemorphed AGG for Spell Gear/another one. With it you can set 2 MMs 2nd last turn, temple the 3rd MM on last turn.

Unhappy girl would be fine I think, but Cloudian won't work because of Zero Gravity.

Never mind, Unhappy Girl also has to be in attack position, so it wont work the same reason as cloudians.
Thank you guys it worked I unlock vellian crowler
