One of the oldest archetypes in Yu-Gi-Oh!, the Gravekeeper’s are quite meta in Duel Links. You first encounter them when fighting Ishizu at the gate. Level 40 Gravekeeper’s deck is one of the strongest decks in the game, and with their boss monster that can gain limitless ATK, it is a deck that will test your skills.
The key to this deck is to be able to protect your weak monsters long enough for you to summon Gravekeeper’s Oracle. You can search out any Gravekeeper’s monster card with Gravekeeper’s Recruiter, and help protect them with Gravekeeper’s Priestess effect to increase their defenses. Then you can tribute for Oracle and push for game.

Recommended Character Skills:
Power of Dark – Yami Yugi – Begin duel with field spell “Yami” activated.
Switcheroo – Bandit Keith – Return 1 card in your hand to your Deck and draw another. The skill can only be used once per turn and twice per Duel.
If you don’t have any of the key cards in your hand like Oracle or Priestess, set Recruiter so that you can search for the card you need. It can search the boss monster of this deck Gravekeeper’s Oracle. Almost all Gravekeeper’s DEF are 1500, and Recruiter lets you add any gravekeeper’s card with 1500 DEF of less.
If you already have Oracle in your hand, then set preferably Priestess as she will increase all gravekeeper’s DEF by 200. This will almost be enough to survive any first coming attack. If not, then set Mirror Wall or Windstorm of Etaqua. Then you will be able to summon Oracle in the next turn.
If almost all your monsters are destroyed, you can summon Chief to help with the special summoning from the graveyard. Especially if one of your Oracles was destroyed before. Then push for game.
Gravekeeper’s is one of the first decks in Yu-Gi-Oh!. Although they were not that strong it was still played back in the days. Now, thanks to Duel Links this archetype is making a comeback. It is always nice to see old school decks being meta.
