* Set this card on the field, then use "[[Book of Moon]]" to keep the card on the field, then each turn you can pay half of your life points to "nuke" the field and have this card increase its ATK.
+
* This card can be searched by "[[Dogu]]", "[[Single Purchase]]", "[[Painful Escape]]", "[[Sangan]]","[[Witch of the Black Forest]]", "[[Chaos Zone]]", "[[Magical Contract Door]]", "[[Draconnection]]" and "[[Krystal Dragon]]".
   
* You can use "[[Burial from a Different Dimension]]" to bring back 3 monsters removed from play to your graveyard, and use "[[Monster Reincarnation]]" to bring one of them to your hand.
+
* This card can be [[Tribute Summon]]ed with one [[Tribute]] using "[[Double Coston]]", "[[Totem Dragon]]", "[[Keeper of the Shrine]]" and "[[The First Monarch]]".
   
* You can combo this card with [[Prime Material Dragon]], so when you pay half your life points, you gain that amount instead.
+
* "[[Mausoleum of the Emperor]]" and "[[Star Blast]]" are economical ways of Summoning this card, since their LP costs essentially mean only an extra 1000 LP is paid for this card's effect (as compared to Summoning this card normally and then using its effect).
   
*This card can be searched via "[[Sangan]]".
+
* Monster such as "[[Dynatherium]]" and "[[Gilasaurus]]" are ideal monsters to use for this card's Tribute Summon, since their effects can provide an additional monster for this card's effect to destroy and banish.
   
* This card can be [[Tribute Summon]]ed with one tribute using "[[Double Coston]]" or "[[Totem Dragon]]", which will allow you to keep one extra monster on the field.
+
* Since this card has an original ATK of 0, and its effect drastically reduces one's own LP, it pairs quite well with "[[Unstable Evolution]]".
   
* Before this card is destroyed by its effect, use "[[Metamorphosis]]" to summon "[[Cyber Twin Dragon]]".
+
* This card's effect works well with the effects of cards that activate when they themselves are banished, such as "[[D.D. Survivor]]", "[[D.D. Scout Plane]]", "[[Xyz Dimension Splash]]", etc.
   
* Use "[[DNA Surgery]]" and "[[Telekinetic Charging Cell]]", and the cost for Gandora's effect can be nullified, albeit for only one turn due to the nature of his effect.
+
* This card's End Phase effect can be avoided by either of the following methods:
  +
** First [[Tribute Set]]ting it, then using a card like "[[Book of Taiyou]]" to change it to face-up Attack Position.
  +
*** "[[Fires of Doomsday]]" and "[[Stray Lambs]]" are efficient cards to use for this, since their effects prevent its activator from Summoning other monsters during the turn they're activated (which Tribute Setting avoids).
  +
** [[Banish]]ing it temporarily before returning it to the field, such as by the effects of "[[Dimensionhole]]", "[[Future Visions]]", "[[Interdimensional Matter Transporter]]", etc.
   
* You can easily [[Tribute Summon]] this card with "[[Fires of Doomsday]]" or "[[Stray Lambs]]" and [[Tribute Set]] it.
+
* If this card is able to avoid its End Phase effect, it is best to use cards that produce Tokens in order to capitalize on its destroy-and-banish effect, such as "[[Scapegoat]]", "[[Scapeghost]]", "[[Grinder Golem]]", "[[Phantom Skyblaster]]", etc.
   
* "[[Mausoleum of the Emperor]]" is great with this card as it allows you to keep two extra monsters you have as fodder.
+
* Before this card gets sent to the Graveyard by its End Phase effect, it can still be utilized for the cost of cards like "[[Advance Draw]]", "[[Mystik Wok]]", etc.
** You can also use [[Star Blast]] since it costs the same amount of Life Points to make Gandora summonable.
 
   
* Using [[Gilasaurus]] as tribute fodder is also a good idea; your opponent will summon an additional card to be removed from play, which would otherwise be disadvantegous.
+
* This card is a good card to banish by the effect of "[[Phantom of Chaos]]", since that monster's effect can be made to 'expire' during the End Phase before its gained End Phase effect activates.
   
* This card works fairly well in a Macro Deck. You can use it's effect while you control "[[D.D. Survivor]]" and/or "[[D.D. Scout Plane]]". This cards effect will [[Banish]] then, which means they will return to the field during the End Phase.
+
* In a [[Dragon]]-[[Type]] Deck, this card's effect works well for clearing the field before making an aggressive play by Special Summoning "[[Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon]]" (by banishing this card) and then using its effect to Special Summon another Dragon-Type monster for subsequent [[direct attack]]s.
+
* Send to the Graveyard using "[[Dragon Shrine]]", "[[Foolish Burial]]", or "[[Trade-In]]"
* You can use "[[Dimensionhole]]" to Banish this card then have it come back later on to use its effect again, or even as Tribute fodder.
+
** Use "[[Recurring Nightmare]]" to recycle "[[Gandora (archetype)|Gandora]](s)" for reuse by "Trade-In" and/or card advantage.
 
* Use "[[Herald of Creation]]" to return this card to your hand.
 
 
* This card can be used to destroy "[[Sphinx Teleia]]" and "[[Andro Sphinx]]" at the same time, letting you summon "[[Theinen the Great Sphinx]]"
 
 
* You can recycle this card with "[[Dark Eruption]]" and "[[Recurring Nightmare]]".
 
 
* In a Dinosaur deck, this card can be used to power up "[[Tyranno Infinity]]".
 
 
* Summon "[[Phantom of Chaos]]" and remove this card in your Graveyard from play then clear the field..
 
 
* Before it gets destroyed by its effect, you can [[Tribute]] this card for "[[Advance Draw]]", "[[Mystik Wok]]" or other cards like them.
 
 
* This cards effect can trigger your own "[[Starlight Road]]", albeit at a hefty cost.
 
 
* Use this card with "[[Future Visions]]" to dodge the self-destruct effect.
 
 
* In a Dragon Deck, you can tribute summon this card to remove from play all monsters on your opponent's field, then remove it from play for "[[Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon]]". Then you can use "Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon"'s effect to special summon another Dragon for two direct hits.
 
 
* Equip "[[Gandora the Dragon of Destruction]]" with [[Equip Spell Cards]] that boost [[ATK]] after using its effect to increase the direct damage your opponent takes.
 
 
* Use this card effect while you're controlling "[[Gaia Drake, the Universal Force]]". Gaia will not be destroyed by Gandora effect.
