"The Circuit That Draws the Future" is the forty-sixth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime. It first aired in Japan on April 4, 2018.

Playmaker and Ai are barely hanging on, with only a few LP left. The situation is all but hopeless for them. However, the two of them refuse to give up, and keep on fighting. In order to overcome Varis' near-perfect tactics, Playmaker bets everything on one last draw. At the same time, the Tower of Hanoi is also on the verge of completion. Can Playmaker defeat Revolver and stop Hanoi's plan once and for all?!

Featured Duel: Playmaker vs. Varis[edit]

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 9: Varis
"Borreload Dragon" attacks "Secure Gardna". Varis activates the effect of "Borreload Dragon" to decrease the ATK and DEF of a monster on the field by 500. He targets "Secure Gardna". As Playmaker would take battle damage, he activates the effect of "Secure Gardna" to reduce the damage taken to 0, then as "Secure Gardna" would be destroyed, he activates the effect of "Protection Wizard" in his GY, banishing it to prevent "Secure Gardna" from destruction. "Borrelsword Dragon" attacks "Secure Gardna". Varis activates the effect of "Borrelsword Dragon" to change an Attack Position monster on the field to Defense Position, while allowing "Borrelsword Dragon" to make a second attack during each Battle Phase this turn. He targets "Magnarokket Dragon", but as a Link Monster's effect that targeted "Magnarokket" was activated, Varis activates its effect to destroy it, then send a monster on the field to the GY. He sends "Anesthrokket Dragon". As Playmaker's Link Monster was attacked, he activates the effect of "Cluster Congester" in his GY, banishing it and the attacked Link Monster to Special Summon "Congester Tokens" (???/0) up to the number of Link Monsters Varis controls. The "Congester Tokens" Special Summoned by this effect are destroyed during the End Phase, and for each "Congester Token" destroyed this way, 300 damage is inflicted to Varis. He banishes "Secure Gardna" to Special Summon five "Congester Tokens". A replay occurs, and "Borrelsword Dragon" attacks a "Congester Token". "Borrelsword Dragon" attacks another "Congester Token", but Playmaker activates the effect of "Transaction Rollback", paying half his LP to copy the effect of a Normal Trap Card in Varis's GY (Playmaker: 50 → 25 LP). He copies the effect of "Mirror Force" to destroy all Attack Position monsters Varis controls, but as "Topologic Gumblar Dragon" is Extra Linked, Link Monsters Varis controls cannot be destroyed by card effects. The attack continues and the "Congester Token" is destroyed. "Borrelguard Dragon", "Topologic Bomber Dragon" and "Topologic Gumblar Dragon" attack and destroy the remaining three "Congester Tokens". During the End Phase, as "Magnarokket" was destroyed and sent to the GY this turn, Varis activates its effect to Special Summon a "rokket" monster with a different name from his Deck. He Special Summons "Autorokket Dragon" (1600/1000). The effect of "Boot Sector Launch" increases the ATK and DEF of "Rokket" monsters by 300 ("Autorokket": 1600/1000 → 1900/1300).

Turn 10: Playmaker
Playmaker activates the effect of "Transaction Rollback" in his GY, paying half his LP and banishing it to copy the effect of a Normal Trap Card in his GY (Playmaker: 25 → 13 LP). He copies the effect of "Recoded Alive", banishing a Link-3 Cyberse Link Monster he controls or in his GY to Special Summon a "Code Talker" monster from his Extra Deck. He banishes "Transcode Talker" to Special Summon "Encode Talker" (2300/↑↓↘) to the zone the top-center Link Arrow of "Topologic Gumblar Dragon" points to. As a monster was Special Summoned to a zone a Link Monster pointed to while Varis has a card in his hand, the effect of "Topologic Gumblar Dragon" activates, destroying all cards in both players' hands. As "Spam Mail" was sent from Playmaker's hand to the GY by a card effect, he activates its effect to draw a card, reveal it, then make Varis return a card he controls with the same type as that card to his hand. Playmaker draws "Swap Cleric", which is a Monster Card, and Varis returns "Autorokket" to his hand. Playmaker Normal Summons "Swap Cleric" (500/1000). Playmaker activates the effect of "Recoded Alive" in his GY, banishing it to Special Summon a banished "Code Talker" monster. He Special Summons "Transcode Talker" (2300/↑→↓) to the zone the top-center Link Arrow of "Topologic Bomber Dragon" points to. As "Transcode Talker" is co-linked, it and monsters co-linked to it gain 500 ATK ("Transcode Talker": 2300 → 2800 ATK; "Topologic Bomber Dragon": 3000 → 3500 ATK). As a monster was Special Summoned to a zone a Link Monster pointed to while Varis has a card in his hand, the effect of "Topologic Gumblar Dragon" activates, destroying all cards in both players' hands. Playmaker activates the effect of "Transcode Talker" to Special Summon a "Code Talker" monster from his GY to a zone "Transcode Talker" points to. He Special Summons "Powercode Talker" (2300/←↙→) to the zone the middle-right Link Arrow of "Transcode Talker" points to ("Powercode Talker": 2300 → 2800 ATK).

Playmaker uses "Swap Cleric" and the Link-3 "Encode Talker" to Link Summon "Firewall Dragon" (2500/↑←↓→) to the zone the top-center Link Arrow of "Topologic Gumblar Dragon" points to, creating a second Extra Link. As "Swap Cleric" was sent to the GY as material for a Link Summon of a Link Monster, Playmaker activates its effect to reduce the ATK of that Link Monster by 500 to draw a card ("Firewall Dragon": 2500 → 2000 ATK). Playmaker draws and subsequently activates the Continuous Spell Card "Zero Extra Link", targeting "Transcode Talker". The effect of "Zero Extra Link" increases the ATK of "Transcode Talker" by 800 for every Extra Linked monster, in this case eight ("Transcode Talker": 2800 → 9200 ATK). As Playmaker controls at least as many Link Monsters as monsters in Varis's Main Monster Zones, Varis activates his face-down Trap Card "Link Short" to negate the effects of Playmaker's co-linked monsters and prevent them from attacking until the end of this turn. Varis negates the effects of "Transcode Talker", "Powercode Talker" and "Firewall Dragon", and prevents them from attacking. Playmaker uses "Transcode Talker", "Powercode Talker" and "Firewall Dragon" to Link Summon "Decode Talker" (2300/↙↑↘) to the zone the top-center Link Arrow of "Topologic Bomber Dragon" points to. "Decode Talker" gains 500 ATK for each monster it points to ("Decode Talker": 2300 → 2800 ATK). As "Transcode Talker" was used as a material for the Link Summon of "Decode Talker" while it was Extra Linked, the effect of "Zero Extra Link" activates, increasing the ATK of "Decode Talker" by the ATK gained by "Transcode Talker" ("Decode Talker": 2800 → 9200 ATK). "Decode Talker" attacks and destroys "Borreload Dragon" (Varis: 2700 → 0 LP).
