"Spirit Message", named "Message of Death" (のメッセージ, Shi no Messēji) in Japanese is an archetype used by "Destiny Board" as part of its victory condition. The player who gathers all five letters on the field wins the Duel. In the manga and all Japanese appearances, the word spelled out is the English word "DEATH"; in all other languages, the word spelled out is the English word "FINAL".

Differences in media[edit]

In the manga, "Destiny Board" can only be activated while "Dark Necrofear" is in the Graveyard. Instead of playing a "Spirit Message" Spell Card each turn, the board simply creates a letter. However, if "Dark Necrofear" is removed from the Graveyard, then the Ouija Board breaks.

In the manga, the one who controls the Ouija Board is a spiritual form of "Dark Necrofear". In the anime, it was her dismembered hand.

Playing style[edit]

The weakness of "Destiny Board" is that if "Destiny Board" or a "Spirit Message" card leaves the field, any "Destiny Board" and all "Spirit Message" cards that card's controller controls are sent to the Graveyard.

Another weakness is that "Destiny Board" and the "Spirit Message" cards each occupies a Spell & Trap Zone, limiting the player's use of Spell and Trap Cards. If another Spell/Trap Card is occupying one of the Zones, the message cannot be completed and the player cannot use any Spell or Trap Cards.

"Dark Sanctuary" allows the "Spirit Messages" to be treated as monsters and provides protection to them, so you can use other Spells or Traps as support until you win.

Stall cards are essential for this Deck so that the opponent can't do anything but try to destroy "Destiny Board".

Recommended cards[edit]

Herald Spirit Message[edit]

"Herald of Perfection" and "Herald of Ultimateness" can be used to protect the "Destiny Board" and the "Spirit Message" cards without occupying your Spell & Trap Zones. "Good Goblin Housekeeping" can be used to quickly draw "Destiny Board" while also returning "Spirit Messages" to your Deck.
