"God in Hand!!" (神を手に！！ Kami wo te ni!!) is the 253rd chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga. In its first English printing, it was numbered as the 194th chapter of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist. In the 3-in-1 edition, its number was changed to match the original Japanese printing.
Featured Duel: Dark Yugi VS Seto Kaiba
Turn 4: Seto Kaiba
Yugi used his "Lightforce Sword" to keep "The God of the Obelisk" from Kaiba's hand outside the field for 3 full turns. Since "Obelisk's" Summon was nullified, the Tributed monsters stay on the field and the effect of "Soul Exchange" ends. Kaiba ends his turn.
Turn 5: Dark Yugi
Yugi Sets "Exchange" and ends his turn.
Turn 6: Seto Kaiba
Kaiba Normal Summons "Y-Dragon Head" (1500/1600). As Magnet monsters, Kaiba's "Y-Dragon Head" and "X-Head Cannon" merged to form "XY-Dragon Cannon", a monster with 2200 ATK and 2400 DEF. "XY-Dragon Cannon" attacks and destroys "Kuriboh". Kaiba subsequently activates "Voice of the Heavens", at the cost of 1000 Life Points (Kaiba: 2000) in order to add Yugi's "Slifer the Sky Dragon" from Yugi's Deck to Kaiba's hand. Yugi activates his Set "Exchange", so Kaiba and Yugi swaps one card from their respective hands. Kaiba takes "Life Shaver", and Yugi takes "Slifer the Sky Dragon". Kaiba ends his turn.
