Featured Duel: Playmaker vs. Faust[edit]

The Duel is conducted as a Speed Duel.

Turn 1: Faust
Faust activates the Continuous Spell Card "Wormhole Defense". As "Wormhole Defense" was activated, Faust Special Summons a "Motor Worm Token" (0/0) in Defense Position. If "Wormhole Defense" or an Insect monster Faust controls would be destroyed by battle or card effect, Faust can destroy a "Motor Worm Token" he controls instead. As Faust controls an Insect monster, he activates the Spell Card "Motor Worm Bait", Special Summoning two "Motor Worm Tokens" in Defense Position (0/0). Faust uses three "Motor Worm Tokens" to Link Summon "Motor Worm Spreader Queen" (1000/←↙↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Spreader Queen" points to no monsters, Faust activates its effect, Special Summoning a "Motor Worm Token" to the zone the bottom-left Link Arrow of "Spreader Queen" points to. "Spreader Queen" gains 700 ATK for each Insect monster on the field ("Spreader Queen": 1000 → 2400 ATK). Faust Sets two cards.

Turn 2: Playmaker
As Playmaker controls no monsters, he Special Summons "Linkslayer" (2000/600) by its own effect. As Playmaker controls a Cyberse monster, he Special Summons "Backup Secretary" (1200/800) by its own effect. Playmaker uses "Linkslayer" and "Backup Secretary" to Link Summon "Space Insulator" to the Extra Monster Zone. Playmaker Special Summons "Link Infra-Flier" (0/1800) from his hand to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Space Insulator" points to by its own effect. Playmaker uses "Link Infra-Flier" and "Space Insulator" to Link Summon "Decode Talker" (2300/↙↑↘) to the Extra Monster Zone. Playmaker Normal Summons "Cyberse Wizard" (1800/800) to the zone the bottom-left Link Arrow of "Decode Talker" points to. "Decode Talker" gains 500 ATK for each monster it points to ("Decode Talker": 2300 → 2800 ATK). Playmaker Sets a card.

"Decode Talker" attacks "Spreader Queen" (Faust: 4000 → 3600 LP). As an Insect monster would be destroyed by battle or card effect, Faust uses the effect of "Wormhole Defense", destroying a "Motor Worm Token" to prevent the destruction of the monster ("Spreader Queen": 2400 → 1700 ATK). "Cyberse Wizard" attacks and destroys "Spreader Queen" (Faust: 3600 → 3500 LP). Faust activates his face-down Trap Card "Worm Revival", Special Summoning a Link-3 or lower Insect Link Monster from his GY, then Special Summoning a "Motor Worm Token" to the zone a Link Arrow of that Link Monster points to. He Special Summons "Spreader Queen" (1000/←↙↓) and Special Summons a "Motor Worm Token" (0/0) to the zone the middle-left Link Arrow of "Spreader Queen" points to ("Spreader Queen": 1000 → 2400 ATK). While "Spreader Queen" is on the field, Playmaker cannot attack "Motor Worm Tokens". As an Insect monster is Special Summoned to Faust's field, he activates his face-down Continuous Trap Card "Egg Clutch", changing a monster Playmaker controls to Defense Position, making it an Insect monster and negating its effects. While "Egg Clutch" is on the field, that monster cannot change battle positions. He selects "Cyberse Wizard" ("Spreader Queen": 2400 → 3100 ATK).

Turn 3: Faust
Faust activates the effect of "Egg Clutch", Tributing an Insect monster he controls to Special Summon two "Motor Worm Tokens" to Playmaker's field. He Tributes a "Motor Worm Token" ("Spreader Queen": 3100 → 3800 ATK). Faust activates the effect of "Spreader Queen", Special Summoning a "Motor Worm Token" to the zone the middle-left Link Arrow of "Spreader Queen" points to ("Spreader Queen": 3800 → 4500 ATK). Faust activates the Continuous Spell Card "Motor Worm Gate". If all of Playmaker's monsters are Insect, an Insect Faust controls can attack directly.

"Spreader Queen" attacks and destroys "Decode Talker" (Playmaker: 4000 → 2300 LP). Faust activates his Skill "Double Bite", allowing an Insect monster he controls to attack twice this turn. He targets "Spreader Queen". "Spreader Queen" attacks Playmaker directly, but Playmaker activates his face-down Trap Card "Urgent Link", halving the battle damage, then choosing to Link Summon a Cyberse Link Monster after the battle (Playmaker: 2300 → 50 LP). The effect of "Wormhole Defense" prevents Playmaker from using Insect monsters as Link Material for a Link Summon.

Turn 4: Playmaker
Playmaker draws and subsequently activates the Quick-Play Spell Card "Cybersal Cyclone", banishing a Link Monster from his GY, then destroying Faust's Link Monster with the same Link Rating as the banished monster, then if the original Type of the banished monster was Cyberse, Playmaker can destroy a face-up card in Faust's Spell & Trap Zone. He banishes "Decode Talker" to destroy "Spreader Queen", but Faust destroys a "Motor Worm Token" by the effect of "Wormhole Defense" to prevent the destruction of "Spreader Queen" ("Spreader Queen": 4500 → 3800 ATK), then as the banished monster was Cyberse, Playmaker destroys "Wormhole Defense". Faust activates the effect of "Spreader Queen", Special Summoning a "Motor Worm Token" (0/0) to the zone the middle-left Link Arrow of "Spreader Queen" points to ("Spreader Queen": 3800 → 4500 ATK).

At this point, Playmaker enters the Data Storm. As his LP is 1000 or lower, Playmaker activates his Skill "Storm Access", randomly accessing a card within a Data Storm. Playmaker obtains "Powercode Talker" and adds it to his Extra Deck.

Playmaker uses two "Motor Worm Tokens" and "Cyberse Wizard" to Link Summon "Powercode Talker" (2300/←↙→) to the Extra Monster Zone ("Spreader Queen": 4500 → 2400 ATK). As a Cyberse Link Monster was Link Summoned, Playmaker activates the effect of "Space Insulator" in his GY, Special Summoning it to the zone the bottom-left Link Arrow of "Powercode Talker" points to. Playmaker activates the effect of "Powercode Talker", negating the effects of a face-up monster on the field until the End Phase. He negates the effects of "Spreader Queen" ("Spreader Queen": 2400 → 1000 ATK).

"Powercode Talker" attacks "Spreader Queen". As "Powercode Talker" is battling Faust's monster, Playmaker activates its effect, Tributing a monster it points to to double the original ATK of "Powercode Talker". He Tributes "Space Insulator" ("Powercode Talker": 2300 → 4600 ATK). The attack continues and "Spreader Queen" is destroyed (Faust: 3500 → 0 LP).
