Playmaker vs. Prototype Green-A[edit]

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 2: Playmaker
Playmaker activates the effect of "Dual Assembwurm" in his GY, banishing two other Cyberse monsters from his GY to Special Summon it, but its ATK becomes halved. He banishes "Dotscaper" and "Linkslayer", and Special Summons "Dual Assembwurm" (2800 → 1400/1000). As "Dotscaper" was banished, Playmaker activates its effect, Special Summoning it (0/2100). Playmaker activates the Equip Spell "Cynet Defrag", paying half his LP to activate it from the GY (Playmaker: 4000 → 2000 LP), targeting a Level 4 or lower Cyberse monster in his GY and Special Summoning it in Defense Position, then equipping "Cynet Defrag" to it. He targets, Special Summons, and equips "Cynet Defrag" to "Flick Clown" (1000/1400). As Playmaker has no cards in his hand, he activates the effect of "Flick Clown", paying 1000 LP to draw a card (Playmaker: 2000 → 1000 LP).

At this point, Playmaker enters the Data Storm. As Playmaker's LP is 1000 or less, he activates his Skill "Storm Access", accessing a Cyberse Link Monster at random from a nearby Data Storm and adding it to his Extra Deck. He obtains "Vector Scare Archfiend" and adds it to his Extra Deck.

Playmaker sets "Dotscaper", "Dual Assembwurm", and "Flick Clown" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Vector Scare Archfiend" (2400/↙↑→) to the Extra Monster Zone. Playmaker Normal Summons "Cyberse Wizard" (1800/800). "Cyberse Wizard" attacks and destroys "Drillworm", then "Vector Scare Archfiend" attacks and destroys "Nautilus" (Green-A: 3500 → 1100 LP). As "Vector Scare Archfiend" destroyed Green-A's monster by battle, Playmaker activates its effect, Tributing a monster to Special Summon the destroyed monster to Green-A's zone "Vector Scare Archfiend" points to, then "Vector Scare Archfiend" can attack again in a row, on that monster. He Tributes "Cyberse Wizard", then Special Summons "Nautilus" to the zone the top-center Link Arrow of "Vector Scare Archfiend" points to. "Vector Scare Archfiend" attacks and destroys "Nautilus" (Green-A: 1100 → 0 LP).

The Duel is conducted as a Speed Duel.

Turn 1: Blue Angel
Blue Angel activates the Field Spell "Trickstar Light Stage", adding a "Trickstar" monster from her Deck to her hand. She adds "Trickstar Lilybell". As "Lilybell" was added to Blue Angel's hand except by drawing it, she activates its effect, Special Summoning it (800/2000). Blue Angel Normal Summons "Trickstar Candina" (1800/400). As "Candina" was Normal Summoned, Blue Angel activates its effect, adding a "Trickstar" card from her Deck to her hand. She adds "Trickstar Vision". Blue Angel sets "Lilybell" and "Candina" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Trickstar Holly Angel" (2000/↙↘) to the Extra Monster Zone. Blue Angel activates the Spell "Trickstar Vision", Special Summoning a "Trickstar" monster from her hand, but its ATK becomes halved, also it has its effects negated, then each player draws a card. She Special Summons "Trickstar Narkissus" (1000 → 500/1800), then both players draw a card. Blue Angel Sets a card. Blue Angel activates the effect of "Trickstar Lycoris" in her hand, revealing it, then targeting a different "Trickstar" monster she controls to Special Summon it, then return that monster to the hand. She targets "Narkissus", Special Summons "Lycoris" (1600/1200) to the zone the bottom-left Link Arrow of "Holly Angel" points to, and returns "Narkissus" to her hand. Each time a "Trickstar" monster is Normal or Special Summoned to a zone "Holly Angel" points to, its effect inflicts 200 damage to Red-B (Red-B: 4000 → 3800 LP). Each time a "Trickstar" monster Blue Angel controls inflicts battle or effect damage to Red-B, the effect of "Light Stage" inflicts 200 damage to him (Red-B: 3800 → 3600 LP). As Red-B took effect damage, Blue Angel activates the effect of "Narkissus" in her hand, Special Summoning it (1000/1800). She Special Summons it in Defense Position.

Turn 2: Red-B
Red-B draws. Each time a card is added to Red-B's hand, the effect of "Lycoris" inflicts 200 damage to him for each (Red-B: 3600 → 3400 → 3200 LP). As Red-B took damage by a "Trickstar" monster's effect, the effect of "Holly Angel" activates, increasing its ATK equal to the damage he took, until the end of this turn ("Holly Angel": 2000 → 2200 ATK). Red-B activates the Continuous Spell "Abyss Invitation". Red-B activates the effect of "Tentacluster Darkwhip" in its hand, paying 500 LP to Special Summon it (100/500) (Red-B: 3200 → 2700 LP). Each time Red-B activates a monster effect in his hand or GY, the effect of "Narkissus" inflicts 200 damage to him immediately after it resolves (Red-B: 2700 → 2500 → 2300 LP). As a player took 500 or less effect damage by the effect of another card, the effect of "Abyss Invitation" activates, inflicting 200 damage to Blue Angel (Blue Angel: 4000 → 3800 → 3600 LP). As Red-B took damage by a "Trickstar" monster's effect, the effect of "Holly Angel" activates, increasing its ATK equal to the damage he took, until the end of this turn ("Holly Angel": 2200 → 2400 ATK). Red-B activates the Spell "Machine Duplication", targeting a Machine monster he controls with 500 or less ATK and Special Summoning up to two monsters from his Deck with the same name as that face-up monster. He targets "Darkwhip" and Special Summons two copies of "Darkwhip" (100/500). Red-B sets three copies of "Darkwhip" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Tentacluster Nautilus" (0/↙↓↘) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Nautilus" was Link Summoned, Red-B activates its effect, Special Summoning a "Tentacluster" monster from his hand to his zone "Nautilus" points to. He Special Summons "Tentacluster Blastsucker" (400/400) to a zone "Nautilus" points to. Red-B Normal Summons "Blastsucker" (400/400) to a zone "Nautilus" points to. Red-B activates the effect of "Nautilus", targeting all monsters it points to and destroying them. He targets two copies of "Blastsucker". As a Link Monster's effect is activated that targets the two copies of "Blastsucker" on the field, Red-B activates their effects, destroying them, then inflicting 400 damage to Blue Angel (Blue Angel: 3600 → 3200 → 2800 LP). As a player took 500 or less effect damage by the effect of another card, the effect of "Abyss Invitation" activates, inflicting 200 damage to Blue Angel (Blue Angel: 2800 → 2600 → 2400 LP).

Red-B activates the effect of "Blastsucker" in his GY, banishing it to inflict 400 damage to Blue Angel (Blue Angel: 2400 → 2000 LP, Red-B: 2300 → 2100 → 1900 LP). As a player took 500 or less effect damage by the effect of another card, the effect of "Abyss Invitation" activates, inflicting 200 damage to Blue Angel (Blue Angel: 2000 → 1800 → 1600 → 1400 LP). As Red-B took damage by a "Trickstar" monster's effect, the effect of "Holly Angel" activates, increasing its ATK equal to the damage he took, until the end of this turn ("Holly Angel": 2400 → 2600 ATK). Red-B activates the effect of "Blastsucker" in his GY, banishing it to inflict 400 damage to Blue Angel (Blue Angel: 1400 → 1000 LP, Red-B: 1900 → 1700 → 1500 LP). As a player took 500 or less effect damage by the effect of another card, the effect of "Abyss Invitation" activates, inflicting 200 damage to Blue Angel (Blue Angel: 1000 → 800 → 600 → 400 LP). As Red-B took damage by a "Trickstar" monster's effect, the effect of "Holly Angel" activates, increasing its ATK equal to the damage he took, until the end of this turn ("Holly Angel": 2600 → 2800 ATK). Red-B activates the Continuous Spell "Flexible Tentacluster", and activates its effect, targeting one of his banished "Tentacluster" monsters and Special Summoning it in Attack Position. He targets and Special Summons "Blastsucker" (400/400). "Blastsucker" attacks "Lycoris". As Red-B's monster declared an attack, Blue Angel activates her face-down Trap "Trickstar Cascade", returning a "Trickstar" card she controls to the hand to negate the attack. She returns "Light Stage" and negates the attack of "Blastsucker".

Turn 3: Blue Angel
Blue Angel Normal Summons "Candina" (1800/400). As "Candina" was Normal Summoned, Blue Angel activates its effect, adding a "Trickstar" card from her Deck to her hand. She adds "Trickstar Temptation". Blue Angel sets "Narkissus" and "Lycoris" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Trickstar Black Catbat" (2000/←→) to the zone the bottom-left Link Arrow of "Holly Angel" points to (Red-B: 1500 → 1300 LP). As a player took 500 or less effect damage by the effect of another card, the effect of "Abyss Invitation" activates, inflicting 200 damage to Blue Angel (Blue Angel: 400 → 200 LP). As Red-B took damage by a "Trickstar" monster's effect, the effect of "Holly Angel" activates, increasing its ATK equal to the damage he took, until the end of this turn ("Holly Angel": 2000 → 2200 ATK). As Red-B took damage by a "Trickstar" monster's effect, the effect of "Black Catbat" activates, reducing the ATK of all face-up monsters he controls by 200 for each monster "Black Catbat" points to, until the end of this turn. "Black Catbat" points to "Candina" ("Blastsucker": 400 → 200 ATK). As Blue Angel controls a "Trickstar" monster, she activates the Quick-Play Spell "Trickstar Temptation", targeting a monster on the field whose current ATK is different from its original ATK and returning it to the hand. He targets and returns "Blastsucker". "Holly Angel" attacks "Nautilus". Each turn, the first time Red-B would take battle damage from an attack involving his "Tentacluster" monster, the effect of "Flexible Tentacluster" prevents him from taking it. The attack continues and "Nautilus" is destroyed. "Black Catbat" attacks Red-B directly (Red-B: 1300 → 0 LP).
