Miller, Howard X

Howard X Miller, known in Japan and nicknamed in the dub as X (エックス, Ekkusu), is a member of the Society of Light and a Pro League Duelist. He is ranked higher than Aster Phoenix in the Society; in the dub, he is Sartorius's lawyer and claims that he dreamed of being a pastry chef when he was a child.

Howard X Miller proves a formidable opponent for Jaden Yuki, and is able to leave him with zero cards in his Deck twice, but Miller is ironically undone when he's unable to draw due to the effect of the "Neo-Spacian Glow Moss" that Jaden Summoned on X's field, causing him to Deck Out instead.

Design[edit]

In the English dub, his voice seems to be a parody and homage of Paul Lynde. He constantly makes court references (e.g., exclaiming "Objection!" when he activates a Trap Card).

His last name, Miller, is a pun on "mill", a term borrowed from Magic: The Gathering that describes a play style where you aim to directly discard from the opponent's Deck.

Deck[edit]

As his name suggests, Howard runs a Mill Deck, which focuses on emptying his opponents' Decks, causing them to Deck Out and automatically lose. His strategy relies primarily on "Trap Sluzer" and "Monster Register", a combo that demolishes the Deck of his opponent, but leaves him virtually immune, while various Spell and Trap Cards are used to stall his opponents and protect this combo.
