Featured Duel:Yami Yugi Vs. Arkana[edit]

Turn 1: Yami Yugi
Yami Yugi draws. He then Sets a card and Normal Summons "Alpha The Magnet Warrior" (1400/1700) in Defense Position.

Turn 2: Arkana
Arkana's opening hand contains "The Mystical Guillotine", "Mystic Tomato", "Beckon to the Dark", "Doll of Demise", and "Dark Magician". Since Arkana cheated in shuffling his Deck, he has his own "Dark Magician" in his hand. Arkana draws "Legion the Fiend Jester" and subsequently Normal Summons it (1300/1500) in Defense Position. Arkana intends to Tribute his "Legion" and another monster on his next turn in order to Tribute Summon "Dark Magician".

Turn 3: Yami Yugi
Yami Yugi draws. His hand contains "Card Destruction", "Celtic Guardian", "Kuriboh", "Beaver Warrior", and "Full Moon". Since Yami Yugi doesn't trust in Arkana's shuffling, he activates "Card Destruction" to force both players to discard their entire hand and draw cards equal to the number of cards they just discarded. Arkana draws five cards while Yami Yugi draws four.

Yami Yugi then activates his face-down "Brain Control" to take control of "Legion the Fiend Jester" until the End Phase. He then Tributes "Legion the Fiend Jester" and "Alpha the Magnet Warrior" in order to Tribute Summon "Dark Magician" (2500/2100) in Attack Position. "Dark Magician" attacks directly (Arkana 4000 → 1500).

Turn 4: Arkana
Arkana draws. He then Normal Summons "Mystic Tomato" (1400/1100) in Defense Position and Sets a card.

Turn 5: Yami Yugi
Yami Yugi draws. He then Normal Summons "Beta The Magnet Warrior" (1700/1600) in Attack Position. Since Yami Yugi summoned a monster, Arkana activates his face-down "Dark Renewal" to Tribute both "Beta The Magnet Warrior" and "Mystic Tomato" and revive "Dark Magician" (2500/2100) from his Graveyard in Attack Position. Yami Yugi Sets two cards.

Turn 6: Arkana
Arkana draws. He then Sets two cards.

Turn 7: Yami Yugi
Yami Yugi draws. He then Sets one card.

Turn 8: Arkana
Arkana draws. He then Sets one card.

Turn 9: Yami Yugi
Yami Yugi draws. He then Sets one card.

Turn 10: Arkana
Arkana draws. He then Sets one card. Arkana then activates his face-down "The Mystical Guillotine" to destroy Yami Yugi's "Dark Magician", but Yami Yugi activates his face-down "Magical Hats" to create four Hats, hide his "Dark Magician in one of them, and shuffle the hats up. "The Mystical Guillotine" destroys a "Hat", but it turns out to be empty.

Arkana activates his face-down "Thousand Knives" to automatically destroy the hat that contains Yami Yugi's "Dark Magician", but Yami Yugi activates his face-down "Cursebreaker" to negate "Thousand Knives". As the location of the Hat with "Dark Magician" was revealed, the remaining Hats disappear.

Arkana's "Dark Magician" attacks Yami Yugi's "Dark Magician". Both monsters are then destroyed in a double KO. Both Arkana and Yami Yugi then activate their face-down "Monster Reborn" to revive their "Dark Magicians" (2500/2100 for both) in Attack Position.

Turn 11: Yami Yugi
Yami Yugi draws. He then passes his turn.

Turn 12: Arkana
Arkana draws. He then Sets one card.

Turn 13: Yami Yugi
Yami Yugi draws. He then Sets two cards.

Turn 14: Arkana
Arkana activates his face-down "Beckon to the Dark" to send Yami Yugi's "Dark Magician" into the darkness, but Yami Yugi activates his face-down "Mystical Refpanel" to switch the effect of "Beckon to the Dark" onto Arkana's "Dark Magician" instead.

Arkana then activates his face-down "Nightmare's Chains" to negate the effect of "Mystical Refpanel". The secondary effect of "Nightmare's Chains" also forbids Yami Yugi's "Dark Magician" from attacking or changing its battle position. Since Yami Yugi's "Dark Magician" is the only monster he controls but is unable to battle due to Nightmare's Chains, this allows Arkana's monsters to attack directly. Arkana's "Dark Magician" attacks directly (Yami Yugi 4000 → 1500).

Turn 15: Yami Yugi
Yami Yugi draws. He then Normal Summons "Big Shield Gardna" (100/2600) in Defense Position.

Turn 16: Arkana
Arkana draws. He then Normal Summons "Doll of Demise" (1600/1700) in Attack Position. He then activates "Ectoplasmer", which lets the turn player choose two types of monsters and give them the ability to transform into ectoplasm this turn, with half of those monsters' ATK inflicted as damage to the opponent. Arkana activates the effect of "Ectoplasmer" and selects "Doll of Demise" and "Dark Magician" as those two types.

He converts "Doll of Demise" into ectoplasm and inflicts damage to Yami Yugi (Yami Yugi 1500 → 700). Arkana then also converts his "Dark Magician" into ectoplasm in an attempt to inflict damage. However, since "Dark Magician" was one of the designated types of monsters this turn, this also allows Yami Yugi's "Dark Magician" to convert itself to ectoplasm and nullify the damage from Arkana's "Dark Magician".

Turn 17: Arkana
Arkana Sets a card.

Turn 18: Yami Yugi
Yami Yugi draws. He then Normal Summons "Gazelle the King of Mythical Beasts" (1500/1200) in Attack Position. Arkana then activates his face-down "Shadow Balance" to destroy Yami Yugi's monsters until he and Arkana has the same number of monsters. Since there are no monsters on Arkana's side of the field, the effect of "Shadow Balance" destroys both "Gazelle the King of Mythical Beasts" and "Big Shield Gardna".

Turn 19: Arkana
Arkana draws. He then activates "Dark Magic Curtain" to pay half his Life Points (Arkana 1500 → 750) and Special Summon a "Dark Magician" from his Deck (2500/2100) in Attack Position. He then activates "Anti-Magic Arrows" to prevent Yami Yugi from activating his Set cards.

Arkana's "Dark Magician" attacks directly, but Yami Yugi activates the effect of "Dark Magic Curtain" to pay half his Life Points (Yami 700 → 350) and Special Summon "Dark Magician Girl" (2000/1700) in Attack Position. Yami Yugi states that due to the effect of "Dark Magician Girl", it gains 300 ATK for each "Dark Magician" in the Graveyard.

A replay occurs, and Arkana, knowing that Yami Yugi has only one "Dark Magician" in his Graveyard (which would make the ATK of "Dark Magician Girl" 2300), uses his "Dark Magician" to attack "Dark Magician Girl". However, Yami Yugi then reminds Arkana that "Dark Magician Girl" gains ATK from "Dark Magicians" in both players' Graveyards ("Dark Magician Girl": 2000 → 2600/1700). "Dark Magician Girl" then destroys Arkana's "Dark Magician" (Arkana 750 → 650) ("Dark Magician Girl": 2600 → 2900/1700).

Turn 20: Yami Yugi
"Dark Magician Girl" attacks directly (Arkana 650 → 0).
