Featured Duel: Ghost Gal vs. Varis[edit]

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 2: Varis
Varis Normal Summons "Gateway Dragon" (1600/1400). Varis activates the effect of "Gateway Dragon", Special Summoning a Level 4 or lower DARK Dragon monster from his hand. He Special Summons the Level 2 "Sniffer Dragon" (800/400). As "Sniffer Dragon" was was Normal or Special Summoned, Varis activates its effect, adding "Sniffer Dragon" from his Deck to his hand. Varis Special Summons "Defrag Dragon" from his hand by sending another monster from his hand to the GY by its own effect. He sends "Background Dragon" to Special Summon "Defrag Dragon" (1000/600). Varis sets "Gateway Dragon" and "Sniffer Dragon" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Twin Triangle Dragon" (1200/↓→) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Twin Triangle Dragon" was Link Summoned, Varis activates its effect, paying 500 LP, then targeting a Level 5 or higher monster in his GY to Special Summon it to his zone "Twin Triangle Dragon" points to, but it cannot attack this turn, also it has its effects negated (Varis: 4000 → 3500 LP). He Special Summons the Level 5 "Background Dragon" (1600/1800) to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Twin Triangle Dragon" points to. Varis sets "Defrag Dragon", "Background Dragon", and the Link-2 "Twin Triangle Dragon" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Topologic Bomber Dragon" (3000/↑↙↓↘) to the Extra Monster Zone. Varis Sets a card. "Topologic Bomber Dragon" attacks "Altergeist Marionetter". As Varis' monster declared an attack while Ghost Gal controls an "Altergeist" card, Ghost Gal activates the effect of "Altergeist Kunquery" in her hand, Special Summoning it, then negating the attack. She Special Summons "Kunquery" (0/2400) and negates the attack of "Topologic Bomber Dragon". As "Kunquery" was Special Summoned, Ghost Gal activates its effect, targeting a face-up card Varis controls and negating the effects of that card while it and "Kunquery" are face-up on the field. She targets and negates the effects of "Topologic Bomber Dragon".

Turn 3: Ghost Gal
Ghost Gal's hand contains "Altergeist Silquitous" and "Altergeist Manifestation". Ghost Gal Normal Summons "Altergeist Silquitous" (800/1500). Ghost Girl activates her face-down Continuous Trap "Altergeist Protocol". Ghost Gal activates the effect of "Silquitous", returning another "Altergeist" card she controls to the hand, then targeting a card Varis controls to return it to the hand. She returns "Protocol" to her hand, then targets and returns "Topologic Bomber Dragon" to Varis' Extra Deck. Ghost Gal sets "Kunquery" and "Silquitous" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Altergeist Kidolga" (1000/←↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. Ghost Gal sets "Marionetter" and the Link-2 "Kidolga" to Link Summon "Altergeist Primebanshee" (2100/↓↘→) to the Extra Monster Zone. Ghost Gal activates her face-down Trap "Altergeist Manifestation", targeting an "Altergeist" monster in her GY and Special Summoning it in Attack Position, then equipping it with "Manifestation". She targets and Special Summons "Kidolga" (1000/←↓), then equips it with "Manifestation". Ghost Gal Sets two cards. "Primebanshee" attacks Varis directly (Varis: 3500 → 1400 LP). As another "Altergeist" monster Ghost Gal controls inflicted battle damage to Varis, Ghost Gal activates the effect of "Kidolga", targeting a monster in Varis' GY and Special Summoning it to her zone "Kidolga" points to, but each turn, it cannot attack unless "Kidolga" has already declared an attack that turn. She Special Summons "Twin Triangle Dragon" (1200/↓→) to the zone the middle-left Link Arrow of "Kidolga" points to. "Kidolga" attacks Varis directly (Varis: 1400 → 400 LP). "Twin Triangle Dragon" attacks Varis directly. Varis activates his unknown Trap, destroying all of Ghost Gal's monsters. "Primebanshee", "Twin Triangle Dragon", and "Kidolga" and the equipped "Manifestation" are destroyed. As "Primebanshee" was sent from the field to the GY, Ghost Gal activates its effect, targeting an "Altergeist" card in her GY and adding it to her hand. She targets and adds "Marionetter". Ghost Gal activates her Skill "Secret Cure", excavating cards from the top of her Deck until she excavates a Monster Card. That monster is added to her hand, and both players gain LP equal to that monster's ATK. All other cards will be sent to the GY. She excavates "Kunquery" (0/2400) and adds it to her hand.

Turn 4: Varis
Ghost Gal activates her face-down Continuous Trap "Protocol", but as Ghost Gal activated a Trap Card, Varis pays half his LP to activate the Counter Trap "Red Reboot" from his hand (Varis: 400 → 200 LP), negating the activation, then Setting that card face-down, then Ghost Gal can Set another Trap directly from her Deck, and for the rest of this turn after "Red Reboot" resolves, Ghost Gal cannot activate Trap Cards. The activation of "Protocol" is negated, and it is Set, then Ghost Gal Sets "Altergeist Camouflage". As Varis controls no monsters, he activates the effect of "Background Dragon" in his GY, Special Summoning both it and a Level 4 or lower Dragon monster from his hand in Defense Position, but "Background Dragon" is banished when it leaves the field. Varis Special Summons "Background Dragon" (1600/1800) and the Level 2 "Sniffer Dragon" (800/400) from his hand. As "Sniffer Dragon" was Normal or Special Summoned, Varis activates its effect, adding "Sniffer Dragon" from his Deck to his hand. Varis adds and subsequently Normal Summons "Sniffer Dragon" (800/400).

At this points, Varis enters the Data Storm. As Varis' 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 "Topologic Trisbaena" and adds it to his Extra Deck.

Varis sets "Background Dragon" and two copies of "Sniffer Dragon" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Topologic Trisbaena" (2500/↙↑↘) to the Extra Monster Zone. Varis activates the effect of "Defrag Dragon" in his GY, banishing three monsters from his GY with the same name to Special Summon it. Varis banishes three copies of "Sniffer Dragon" to Special Summon "Defrag Dragon" (1000/600) to the zone the bottom-left Link Arrow of "Topologic Trisbaena" points to. As a monster was Special Summoned to a zone "Topologic Trisbaena" points to, its effect activates, banishing that monster and as many Spell/Traps on the field as possible, then inflicting 500 damage to Ghost Gal for each of her cards banished by this effect. "Defrag Dragon" and Ghost Gal's three face-down Spell/Traps are banished (Ghost Gal: 4000 → 2500 LP). "Topologic Trisbaena" attacks Ghost Gal directly (Ghost Gal: 2500 → 0 LP).
