Featured Duel: Katsuya Jonouchi vs. Dark Marik
Turn 9: Jonouchi
Jonouchi draws "Foolish Burial". Jonouchi's hand contains "Foolish Burial", "Graceful Dice" and two unknown Spell or Trap Cards. As "Viser Des" is targeting a monster and Dark Marik controls no other monsters, Jonouchi can attack him directly. "Lava Golem" attacks directly, but Dark Marik activates his Set Trap Card "Monster Relief", allowing him to return a monster he controls to his hand and then Special Summon a Level 4 monster from his hand. He returns "Viser Des" to his hand and then Special Summons it in Attack Position (500/?). The attack continues, but since "Viser Des" was Summoned, it cannot be destroyed for three turns. At the end of the Battle Phase, the effect of "Lava Golem" inflicts 700 damage to Jonouchi (Jonouchi: 3300 → 2600 LP) and the effect of "Helpoemer" discards a random card from Jonouchi's hand.
Turn 10: Dark Marik
Dark Marik Sets a card. Dark Marik activate the Permanent Spell Card "Machine Duplication", allowing him to Special Summon as many copies of a Machine-Type monster he controls with 500 or less ATK as possible from his Deck. He Special Summons two more copies of "Viser Des" in Attack Position. Dark Marik activates the effects of the two "Viser Des" that he just Special Summoned, targeting "Lava Golem" and "Rocket Warrior" and preventing them from being Tributed, while also allowing him to attack them at the end of Jonouchi's Battle Phase.
Turn 11: Jonouchi
Jonouchi's hand contains "Foolish Burial", "Graceful Dice" and an unknown Spell or Trap Card. Jonouchi draws "Gilford the Lightning". Jonouchi activates the Spell Card "Graceful Dice", targeting a monster on the field with 500 or less ATK and rolling a six-sided dice, then multiplying the ATK of that monster by the number rolled. He targets the first "Viser Des" and he rolls a 6 ("Viser Des": 500 → 3000 ATK). As the ATK of the monster targeted by "Machine Duplication" increased past 500, the monsters summoned by its effect are destroyed. Jonouchi Tributes "Lava Golem", "Rocket Warrior" and "Panther Warrior" to Tribute Summon "Gilford the Lightning" (2800/1400) in Attack Position.
