The Rare Hunter uses an "Exodia" Deck.

Dark Duel Stories

His Deck in is based closely on his Duel with Yugi. Though kept secret, his theme centers around Summoning Exodia (which is limited in this game). Meanwhile, he also uses wall monsters to protect his Life Points, such as "Stone Statue of the Aztecs" and "Gear Golem the Moving Fortress". Other cards that he previously used were "Three-headed Geedo" and "Hannibal Necromancer". Being a stronger opponent in the game, he utilizes rare/powerful magic cards such as "Raigeki" and "Final Flame" and can Summon "Flame Cerebrus" by fusing "Air Marmot of Nefariousness" and "Dragon Piper".
