How to use

Starting monsters

Always start with either Gravekeeper's Priestess or Gravekeeper's Recruiter. Set a recruiter if you want to search for chief or oracle, while priestess is to defend your field when you already have them. Legion the Fiend Jester is for quickly tribute summoning chief into the field, but only do this when you already have some gravekeeper monsters on the graveyard.

Tributing the recruiter

Starting with recruiter is often better. If your recruiter is still alive the next turn you summon him, you can use e.con to tribute your recruiter to take control of their monster and search chief to tribute summon him as well as reviving the recuiter.

1 of 3 effects

You can choose which effect to use when you tribute summon this card using gravekeeper monsters. It's almost always safer to lower your opponent's attack and defense since it weakens them and makes your other monsters able to take them down without the threat of a Mirror Wall, but destroying their set monsters can be good too to prevent flip effects if you are certain you can take down their face-up monsters. Increasing his attack effect is very situational and almost never recommended.

Other useful cards

Gravekeeper's Spear Soldier
Gravekeeper's Spear Soldier
If you are lacking some recruiters or priestess, this can be a good alternative. Summon oracle to lower their atk and def and use this to deal some damage.
The Shallow Grave
The Shallow Grave
Revive your recruiter and tribute summon oracle to destroy the face-down and get a quick advantage.
Half Shut
Half Shut
Ensures your monsters won't be destroyed by battle for a turn, allowing you to tribute summon easily.
Regretful Rebirth
Regretful Rebirth
Really good to use with recruiter since it will activate twice, even if you don't tribute him later.
Mirror Wall
Mirror Wall
Always good in any deck to either destroy your opponent's monster or survive.

can i combine the effects of legion the fiend jester with double summon? so that i can do 2 normal summons/set and 1 tribute summon?

so that the following combo is possible:
- activate double summon
- summon legion the fiend jester
- summon gravekeepers recruiter
- activate enemy controller, tribute gravekeepers recruiter for taking control over enemies monster
- searching gravekeepers chief with recruiters effect
- tribute enemies monster for gravekeepers chief
- special summon 1 gravekeeper from graveyard with chiefs effect

Your play order is incorrect. You can end up getting destroyed if you play the order like you are doing. - activate double summon - summon legion the fiend jester - summon gravekeepers recruiter - activate enemy controller, tribute gravekeepers recruiter. Your opponent can chain OTC. Than they can kill there monster + kill your Legion. or They they could use a negation trap.

Change the play order around! - summon gravekeepers recruiter - activate enemy controller, tribute gravekeepers recruiter Do those moves first. If something bad happens, At least you still have Legion + Double Summon in your hand. Basically, your play isn't wasted! You can try it again another time.

Also if I am not mistaken, Double Summon by itself should allow you the ability to tribute summon over the enemy monster with out having to bring out Legion. A Tribute Summon is a Normal Summon The only reason you would want to bring out Legion is if you want to do more damage or If you are trying to do a weird play involving setting Oracle, It does happen sometimes.

Why is this deck on Tier 2?
It could easily win over any tier 1 deck just by spamming the recruiter/chief/oracle combo.
How am I supposed to make a Gravekeeper deck when shit like this keeps happening

There is no reason to farm lvl 30 odion... it is easy to farm lvl 40, kaiba was the only LD we can say that, but now we can make consistent 7k on kaiba lvl 40 with kaibamen deck

... I am having the EXACT same luck on Ishizu... and she has more GK cards needed.... I only got 1 chief.... 4-5 more cards to go...

In my opinion there is no need for GK-Chief. Use cards like MirrorWall and Equata to save a GK-Spear for a turn then summon Oracle. (Only after opponent summons high attack monster like BEWD)

true but your missing an important OTK from Oracle summon + Double Summon +Chief combo which gives over 4k attk on the board if your deck is constructed that way

I didn't even realize that. It's because of how many stars Oracle has(and his special ability). Thanks for the wisdom my friend.

Congrats buddy. I'm at 20k keys spent on Bandit Keith without a single Barrel Dragon drop. Consistent 8k scores. When you get on that level you can start complaining.

The main version should be updated to the one running Switcheroo/Restart/Balance along with Double Summon and triple Soul Exchange.
<< Anonymous(Edgar81539)
Anoymous 18days ago Reply
switcheroo is going to get nerfed in less than 2 weeks, and people would complain pretty hard since the "recommended" card shows 3 UR which requires 2 box resets that has 200 cards lol.
<< Anonymous(Edgar81539)
Edgar81539 18days ago Reply
Doesn't change the fact that the current version of Gravekeeper is running Restart/Balance to boost their chance to get a playable hand turn 1. Also nobody cares about people complaining about the recommended list, the Relinquished list has 3 Senju and 3 Sonic birds that are URs from 2 different 200 pack boxes.
Gravekeeper oracle should not ne allowed 1 tribute for a lvl10 monster with it effects to cripple monster makes it too easy to win. To lose att n def to zero is bs

dude you do realize that if you tribute 1 GK for Oracle you don't get it's full effect! read the card next time.

Not true. With one GK tribute, you're able to activate any of GK's Oracle's effects.
