Featured Duel: Blue Angel vs. Spectre[edit]

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 4: Blue Angel
Blue Angel's hand contains "Trickstar Treat", "Trickstar Lilybell" and "Trickstar Candina". Blue Angel Normal Summons "Trickstar Candina" (1800/400). As "Candina" was Normal Summoned, Blue Angel activates its effect, adding a "Trickstar" card from her Deck to her hand. She adds "Trickstar Temptation". Blue Angel uses "Candina" and "Trickstar Lycoris" to Link Summon "Trickstar Crimson Heart" (2000/↙→) to the Extra Monster Zone. As she Link Summoned a "Trickstar" monster, Blue Angel activates the effect of "Trickstar Light Arena", Special Summoning a "Trickstar" monster from the GY that was used as its material. She Special Summons "Candina" (1800/400) to the zone the bottom-left Link Arrow of "Crimson Heart" points to. As a "Trickstar" monster was Normal or Special Summoned to a zone "Crimson Heart" points to, Blue Angel gains 200 LP (Blue Angel: 3600 → 3800 LP). Blue Angel activates the effect of "Crimson Heart", discarding a "Trickstar" card to make both players draw a card. She discards an unknown "Trickstar" card[Notes 1]. Blue Angel draws and subsequently activates the Quick-Play Spell Card "Trickstar Bouquet", returning a "Trickstar" monster to her hand, then increasing the ATK of a monster on the field by that "Trickstar" monster's ATK until the End Phase. She returns "Candina" and increases the ATK of "Sunavalon Dryades" ("Dryades": 0 → 1800 ATK). As she controls a "Trickstar" monster, Blue Angel activates the Quick-Play Spell Card "Trickstar Temptation", returning a monster whose current ATK is different from its original ATK to the hand. As Blue Angel activated a card or effect that targeted a Plant monster he controls, Spectre activates the effect of "Sunvine Maiden" in his hand, Special Summoning it in Defense Position (0/0) and negating that effect. Blue Angel Sets a card.

Turn 5: Spectre
Spectre uses "Dryades" and "Maiden" to Link Summon "Sunavalon Dryanome" (0/↙↓↘) to the Extra Monster Zone. As Spectre controls a "Sunavalon" monster, he sends a card from his hand to the GY[Notes 2] to activate the Continuous Spell Card "Sunvine Shrine". Once per turn, Spectre can Special Summon a Level 4 or lower Plant Normal Monster from the GY. He activates this effect to Special Summon the Level 1 "Sunseed Genius Loci" (0/600) from the GY. Spectre uses "Genius Loci" to Link Summon "Sunvine Thrasher" (800/↓) to the zone the bottom-left Link Arrow of "Dryanome" points to. As "Thrasher" was Special Summoned, Spectre activates its effect, increasing its ATK by 800 times the Link Rating of a "Sunavalon" Link Monster that points to it, in this case three ("Thrasher": 800 → 3200 ATK).

"Thrasher" attacks "Crimson Heart". At the start of the Damage Step, as "Thrasher" is battling Blue Angel's monster, Spectre activates its effect. If Blue Angel's monster is destroyed by that battle and sent to the GY, it is Special Summoned to a zone a "Sunavalon" Link Monster points to. During damage calculation, as a "Trickstar" monster is battling, Blue Angel activates the effect of "Light Arena", reducing all battle damage from that battle to 0, then gaining LP equal to the damage that would have been inflicted. The attack continues and "Crimson Heart" is destroyed (Blue Angel: 3800 → 5000 LP), then Spectre Special Summons "Crimson Heart" (2000/↙→) to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Dryanome" points to. "Trickstar Holly Angel" and "Crimson Heart" attack Blue Angel directly (Blue Angel: 5000 → 3000 → 1000 LP).

Turn 6: Blue Angel
Blue Angel Normal Summons "Trickstar Nightshade" (100/0) and uses it to Link Summon "Trickstar Bloom" (100/↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Bloom" was Link Summoned, Blue Angel activates its effect, making Spectre draw a card. As "Nightshade" was sent to the GY as Link Material for the Link Summon of a "Trickstar" monster, Blue Angel activates its effect to Special Summon it from the GY (100/0). Blue Angel uses "Bloom" and "Nightshade" to Link Summon "Trickstar Black Catbat" (2000/←→) to the Extra Monster Zone. As she Link Summoned a "Trickstar" monster, Blue Angel activates the effect of "Light Arena", Special Summoning "Nightshade" (100/0). Blue Angel uses "Nightshade" and "Black Catbat" to Link Summon "Trickstar Delfiendium" (2200/↙↑↘) to the Extra Monster Zone. As Blue Angel Link Summoned, she activates the Trap Card "Trickstar Maribold", returning a "Trickstar" card from the GY to her hand, then, during her Main Phase this turn, Blue Angel can Normal Summon a "Trickstar" monster in addition to her Normal Summon/Set. She returns "Lycoris" to her hand. Blue Angel Normal Summons "Candina" (1800/400) to a zone "Delfiendium" points to. As "Candina" was Normal Summoned, Blue Angel activates its effect, adding another copy of "Lycoris" to her hand. Blue Angel Sets a card.

"Delfiendium" attacks "Crimson Heart". As "Delfiendium" attacked while pointing to a "Trickstar" monster, Blue Angel activates the effect of "Delfiendium", returning banished cards to her hand, up to the number of Link Monsters Spectre controls, then increasing the ATK of "Delfiendium" by 1000 for each card returned until the end of this turn, however, Blue Angel cannot Set cards, nor activate the effects of "Trickstar" cards in her hand this turn. She returns three copies of "Trickstar Reincarnation" to her hand ("Delfiendium": 2200 → 5200 ATK). As a monster "Dryanome" points to is attacked, Spectre activates its effect, moving that monster to another Main Monster Zone to negate that attack. During the End Phase, Spectre activates the effect of "Shrine", sending it to the GY to Set a Trap Card from his GY[Notes 2].

Turn 7: Spectre
Blue Angel activates the effect of both copies of "Lycoris" in her hand, Special Summoning them, then returning a "Trickstar" monster she controls back to her hand. She Special Summons both in Defense Position (1600/1200 each), then returns "Candina" to her hand and "Delfiendium" to her Extra Deck. Blue Angel activates her face-down Continuous Trap Card "Trickstar Treat", placing a Trickstar Counter on it ("Treat": 0 → 1 Trickstar Counter). Blue Angel can place a Trickstar Counter on "Treat", reveal a "Trickstar" Trap in her hand, and Set it. Blue Angel can then activate that Trap this turn. During the End Phase, if two or more Trickstar Counters are on "Treat", it is destroyed. If "Treat" is destroyed, Blue Angel takes 1000 damage for each Trickstar Counter that was on "Treat". She activates the first effect of "Treat", placing a Trickstar Counter on "Treat" ("Treat": 1 → 2 Trickstar Counters) and revealing "Reincarnation" to Set it, then she activates it, banishing Spectre's entire hand, then Spectre draws cards equal to the number of cards banished, in this case four. As Spectre added cards to his hand, the effect of both copies of "Lycoris" inflict 200 damage to him for each card (Spectre: 3100 → 2300 → 1500 LP). As Spectre took battle or effect damage, he activates the effect of "Dryanome", Special Summoning "Sunvine Healer" (600/↑) from his Extra Deck to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Dryanome" points to, then he gains LP equal to the damage he took (Spectre: 1500 → 2300 LP). Spectre activates the effect of "Healer", gaining 300 LP times the Link Rating of a "Sunavalon" Link Monster that points to it, in this case three (Spectre: 2300 → 3200 LP). Blue Angel activates the effect of "Treat" again, placing a Trickstar Counter on "Treat" ("Treat": 2 → 3 Trickstar Counters), revealing and Setting "Reincarnation", then activating it, with the effects of both "Lycoris" following after (Spectre: 3200 → 2400 → 1600 LP). Blue Angel activates the effect of "Treat" a third time, placing a Trickstar Counter on "Treat" ("Treat": 3 → 4 Trickstar Counters), Setting "Reincarnation" then activating it, but as he controls a "Sunavalon" monster, Spectre activates his face-down Trap Card "Sunbloom Doom", gaining LP equal to the combined ATK of all monsters on the field with the same Type as a monster he controls. He chooses the Fairy "Holly Angel" and gains LP equal to the combined ATK of all Fairy monsters on the field, in this case 7200 (Spectre: 1600 → 8800 LP). The effect of "Reincarnation" resolves, with the effects of both "Lycoris" following after (Spectre: 8800 → 8000 → 7200 LP).

Spectre activates the effect of "Sunbloom Doom" in his GY, banishing it to destroy as monsters on the field as possible with a Level less than or equal to the total number of Spell/Trap Cards that were activated and sent to the GY this turn, then inflicting 500 damage to each player for each of their monsters destroyed. A total of five Trap Cards were activated this turn, so Spectre destroys both Level 3 "Lycoris" (Blue Angel: 1000 → 0 LP).
