The Duel is conducted as a Master Duel.

Turn 1: Varis
Varis Sets a card.

Turn 2: Blood Shepherd
Blood Shepherd Normal Summons "Duplicate Drone" (0/0). As Blood Shepherd controls "Duplicate", he Special Summons "Duplicate" (0/0) from his hand by its own effect. As Blood Shepherd controls a "Drone" monster, he Special Summons "Scud Drone" (800/1100) from his hand by its own effect. Blood Shepherd sets two copies of "Duplicate" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Battledrone Warrant" (1200/←↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. Blood Shepherd sets "Scud" and the Link-2 "Warrant" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Battledrone General" (2400/←↓→) to the Extra Monster Zone. Blood Shepherd activates the effect of "General", targeting a "Drone" monster in his GY and Special Summoning it to his zone "General" points to. He targets and Special Summons "Warrant" (1200/←↓) to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "General" points to. "Warrant" attacks Varis directly (Varis: 4000 → 2800 LP). As Blood Shepherd's "Drone" monster inflicted battle damage to Varis by a direct attack, Blood Shepherd activates the effect of "General", Tributing that monster to inflict damage to Varis equal to the ATK that monster had on the field. He Tributes "Warrant" (Varis: 2800 → 1600 LP). "General" attacks Varis directly. As Blood Shepherd's monster declared a direct attack during the turn Varis took battle damage, Varis activates the effect of "Checksum Dragon" in his hand, Special Summoning it (400/2400) in Attack Position, then gaining LP equal to half its DEF, also it cannot be destroyed by battle this turn (Varis: 1600 → 2800 LP). A replay occurs and "General" attacks "Checksum Dragon", and "Checksum Dragon" is not destroyed (Varis: 2800 → 800 LP). Blood Shepherd Sets a card. Blood Shepherd activates the Continuous Spell "Blitz Drone". During the End Phase, as Blood Shepherd controls no monsters in the Main Monster Zone, he activates the effect of "Warrant" in his GY, Special Summoning it (1200/←↓). As a "Drone" monster was Special Summoned from Blood Shepherd's GY to his field, he activates the effect of "Blitz Drone", Tributing that monster to inflict damage to Varis equal to the ATK the Tributed monster had on the field. He Tributes "Warrant". Varis activates his face-down Continuous Trap "Imperial Order". The effect of "Imperial Order" negates all Spell effects on the field. The effect of "Blitz Drone" is negated.

Turn 3: Varis
During the Standby Phase, the effect of "Imperial Order" forces Varis to pay 700 LP (Varis: 800 → 100 LP). As Blood Shepherd controls a Link Monster, Varis Special Summons "Gateway Dragon" (1600/1400) from his hand by its own effect. Varis activates the effect of "Gateway Dragon", Special Summoning a Level 4 or lower DARK Dragon monster from his hand. He Special Summons the Level 4 "DMZ Dragon" (0/2000). Varis sets "Gateway Dragon", "Checksum Dragon", and "DMZ Dragon" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Topologic Trisbaena" (2500/↙↑↘) to the Extra Monster Zone. As Blood Shepherd controls a "Drone" monster, he activates his face-down Continuous Trap "Capture Drone", targeting a Link Monster Varis controls and negating its effects while it is on the field, also it cannot be Tributed or be used as Link Material. He targets "Topologic Trisbaena". The effect of "Capture Drone" prevents Varis' Link Monsters from attacking. As Blood Shepherd controls a monster and Varis controls a Link Monster, Varis Special Summons "Vulnerability Dragon" (100/100) from his hand by its own effect. As "Vulnerability Dragon" was Special Summoned by its own effect, its effect activates, targeting monsters Varis controls equal to the number of monsters Blood Shepherd controls and destroying them. Blood Shepherd controls one monster, so Varis targets and destroys "Topologic Trisbaena". As the targeted "Topologic Trisbaena" left the field, the effect of "Capture Drone" destroys itself. Varis Normal Summons "Rokket Synchron" (0/0). As "Rokket Synchron" was Normal Summoned, Varis activates its effect, targeting a Level 5 or higher DARK Dragon monster in his GY and Special Summoning it in Defense Position, but its effects are negated, also it is destroyed during the End Phase. Varis Special Summons the Level 6 "Checksum Dragon" (400/2400).

Varis tunes the Level 1 Tuner "Rokket Synchron" with the Level 6 "Checksum Dragon" and the Level 1 "Vulnerability Dragon" to Synchro Summon the Level 8 "Borreload Savage Dragon" (3000/2500) to the Extra Monster Zone. As "Borreload Savage Dragon" was Synchro Summoned, Varis activates its effect, equipping a Link Monster from his GY to it, then placing Borrel Counters on "Borreload Savage Dragon" equal to that card's Link Rating. He equips the Link-3 "Topologic Trisbaena" ("Borreload Savage Dragon": 0 → 3 Borrel Counters). The effect of "Borreload Savage Dragon" increases its ATK equal to half of the equipped monster's ("Borreload Savage Dragon": 3000 → 4250 ATK). "Borreload Savage Dragon" attacks and destroys "General" (Blood Shepherd: 4000 → 2150 LP). At the end of the Damage Step, as Varis' monster equipped with an Equip Card attacked, he activates the effect of "DMZ Dragon" in his GY, banishing it to destroy as many Equip Cards as possible that are equipped to that monster, then allowing it to make a second attack in a row. He destroys "Topologic Trisbaena", allowing "Borreload Savage Dragon" to make a second attack in a row ("Borreload Savage Dragon": 4250 → 3000 ATK). "Borreload Savage Dragon" attacks Blood Shepherd directly (Blood Shepherd: 2150 → 0 LP).
