Featured Duel: Blood Shepherd vs. Lightning[edit]

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 3: Blood Shepherd
Blood Shepherd Normal Summons "Drone Pawn" (600/0). Blood Shepherd activates the effect of "Battledrone General", targeting a "Drone" monster in his GY and Special Summoning it to his zone "General" points to. He targets and Special Summons "Scud Drone" (800/1100). As "Scud" was Special Summoned from the GY by the effect of a "Drone" monster, Blood Shepherd activates its effect, drawing a card, also "Scud" is banished when it leaves the field. Blood Shepherd sets "Scud" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Battledrone Sergeant" (800/↓) to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "General" points to. Blood Shepherd activates the effect of "General", targeting a Level 4 or lower "Drone" monster he controls with 1000 or less ATK and allowing it to attack directly this turn. He targets the Level 1 "Pawn". "Pawn" attacks Lightning directly (Lightning: 4000 → 3400 LP). As Blood Shepherd's "Drone" monster inflicted battle damage to Lightning by a direct attack, Blood Shepherd activates the effect of "General", Tributing that monster to inflict damage to Lightning equal to the ATK that monster had on the field. He Tributes "Pawn" (Lightning: 3400 → 2800 LP). As Blood Shepherd's "Drone" monster inflicted battle damage to Lightning by a direct attack, Blood Shepherd activates the effect of "Sergeant", allowing it to attack directly this turn, but if another monster attacks, "Sergeant" cannot declare an attack for the rest of this turn. "Sergeant" attacks Lightning directly (Lightning: 2800 → 2000 LP). As Blood Shepherd's "Drone" monster inflicted battle damage to Lightning by a direct attack, Blood Shepherd activates the effect of "General", Tributing that monster to inflict damage to Lightning equal to the ATK that monster had on the field. He Tributes "Sergeant" (Lightning: 2000 → 1200 LP). "General" attacks "Armatos Legio Centurion". As Lightning's "Armatos Legio" monster is targeted for an attack, he activates the effect of "Centurion", negating that attack. The attack of "General" is negated. Blood Shepherd activates the Continuous Spell "Drone Unity". During the End Phase, as Blood Shepherd controls no monsters in his Main Monster Zone, he activates the effect of "Battledrone Warrant" in his GY, Special Summoning it (1200/←↓).

Turn 4: Lightning
Lightning activates the Continuous Spell "Armatos Lex", and activates its effect, targeting a Spell and an "Armatos Legio" monster in his GY and shuffling that Spell into the Deck, then adding that "Armatos Legio" monster to his hand. He targets "Judgment Arrows" and "Armatos Legio Gladius", shuffles "Judgment Arrows" into the Deck, and adds "Gladius" to his hand. Lightning activates the effect of "Armatos Colosseum", sending a Level 4 or lower "Armatos Legio" monster from his hand to the GY, then targeting an "Armatos Legio" Link Monster he controls to Special Summon as many "Armatos Legio" monsters as possible with different names from each other and the monster sent to the GY to activate this effect in Defense Position to his zones that Link Monster points to. He sends the Level 2 "Gladius" and targets "Centurion" to Special Summon "Armatos Legio Speculata" (0/1800) and "Armatos Legio Sica" (0/400) to the zones the middle-left and middle-right Link Arrows of "Centurion" point to respectively. Lightning sets "Speculata" and the Link-2 "Centurion" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Armatos Legio Legatus Legionis" (2400/←↓→) to the zone the middle-left Link Arrow of "Centurion" points to. "Centurion" attacks "General". At the start of the Damage Step, as Lightning's "Armatos Legio" Link Monster linked to "Sica" attacked Blood Shepherd's monster, Lightning activates its effect, destroying Blood Shepherd's monster. "General" is destroyed. "Legatus Legionis" attacks and destroys "Warrant" (Blood Shepherd: 3500 → 2300 LP).

Turn 5: Blood Shepherd
Blood Shepherd Normal Summons "Drone Recycler" (100/???). Blood Shepherd activates the effect of "Recycler", banishing a "Drone" Link Monster from his GY to Special Summon a "Drone" monster from his hand whose Level equals the banished monster's Link Rating. He banishes the Link-2 "Warrant" to Special Summon the Level 2 "Drone Carrier" (800/1000). As "Carrier" was Special Summoned by the effect of a "Drone" monster, Blood Shepherd activates its effect, targeting a "Drone" monster in his GY and Special Summoning it. He targets and Special Summons "General" (2400/←↓→). 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 "Pawn" (600/0). Blood Shepherd tunes the Level 2 Tuner "Carrier" with the Level 4 "Recycler" to Synchro Summon the Level 6 "Commandrone Double Sniper" (2000/2600). Blood Shepherd activates the effect of "General", targeting a Level 4 or lower "Drone" monster he controls with 1000 or less ATK and allowing it to attack directly this turn. He targets the Level 1 "Pawn". Lightning activates the effect of "Legatus Legionis", targeting a Level 4 or lower "Armatos Legio" monster he controls and a Level 4 or lower "Armatos Legio" monster in his GY and sending that monster on the field to the GY, then Special Summoning that other monster from his GY. He targets the Level 1 "Sica" and the Level 3 "Armatos Legio Scutum", sending "Sica" to Special Summon "Scutum" (0/1800) to the zone the middle-right Link Arrow of "Centurion" points to. As an "Armatos Legio" monster is Special Summoned to Lightning's field while "Legatus Legionis" is on the field, Lightning activates its effect, this turn, "Legatus Legionis" is unaffected by Blood Shepherd's card effects. While "Scutum" is linked to an "Armatos Legio" Link Monster Lightning controls, its effect only allows Blood Shepherd's monsters to target that "Armatos Legio" Link Monster for attacks.

"Pawn" attacks Lightning directly. As a monster declared a direct attack, the effect of "Lex" activates, negating that attack. The attack of "Pawn" is negated. Each time a card or effect is activated that would negate a monster's attack or the activation of a Spell/Trap Card, the effect of "Double Sniper" places a Drone Counter on itself after that effect resolves ("Double Sniper": 0 → 1 Drone Counter). While one or more Drone Counters are on "Double Sniper", its effect allows it to make a second attack during each Battle Phase, also it can attack directly, but when it does so using this effect, the battle damage inflicted to Lightning becomes 1000. "Double Sniper" attacks Lightning directly. As a monster declared a direct attack, the effect of "Lex" activates, negating that attack. The attack of "Double Sniper" is negated ("Double Sniper": 1 → 2 Drone Counters). "Double Sniper" attacks "Centurion". As Lightning's "Armatos Legio" monster is targeted for an attack, he activates the effect of "Centurion", negating that attack. As Lightning activated a monster effect while there are two Drone Counters on "Double Sniper", Blood Shepherd activates its effect, negating that effect, then destroying that card, then inflicting 1000 damage to Lightning. The first time "Armatos Legio" Link Monsters Lightning controls linked to "Scutum" would be destroyed by a card effect, its effect prevents them from being destroyed. The effect of "Centurion" is negated, but it is not destroyed. The first time an "Armatos Legio" Link Monster Lightning controls linked to "Scutum" would be destroyed by battle, its effect prevents it from being destroyed. The attack continues and "Centurion" is not destroyed (Lightning: 1200 → 900 LP). "General" attacks and destroys "Centurion" (Lightning: 900 → 200 LP).

Blood Shepherd activates the effect of "Drone Unity", Tributing a "Drone" monster to draw 1 card. He Tributes "Pawn", then draws and subsequently activates the Quick-Play Spell "Drone Force Fusion", Fusion Summoning a Fusion Monster from his Extra Deck, using monsters he controls as Fusion Material, including a "Drone" monster, then it gains an effect. He fuses "Double Sniper" and "General" to Fusion Summon "Fortressdrone Beehive" (0/3000) to the Extra Monster Zone. The effect of "Beehive" gained from "Drone Force Fusion" prevents it from being destroyed by card effects. As "Beehive" is Fusion Summoned, its effect activates, placing Drone Counters on itself equal to the total Level of the "Drone" monsters used as its Fusion Material. The total Level equals six, so Blood Shepherd places six Drone Counters on "Beehive" ("Beehive": 0 → 6 Drone Counters). Blood Shepherd activates the effect of "Beehive", removing any number of Drone Counters from it to Special Summon an equal number of "Drone Tokens". He removes five Drone Counters ("Beehive": 6 → 1 Drone Counter) to Special Summon five "Drone Tokens" (0/0). The effect of "Beehive" increases its ATK by 1000 for each other "Drone" monster Blood Shepherd controls. He controls five other "Drone" monsters ("Beehive": 0 → 5000 ATK). Blood Shepherd Sets a card.

Turn 6: Lightning
Lightning draws and subsequently activates the Link Spell "Judgment Arrows" at the Spell & Trap Zone the bottom Link Arrow of "Legatus Legionis" points to. The effect of "Snatch Drone" negates the effects of cards with the same name as the card destroyed when "Snatch Drone" was activated while they are on the field. The effects of "Judgment Arrows" are negated. As Blood Shepherd controls a "Drone" monster, he activates his face-down Continuous Trap "Capture Drone", targeting a Link Monster Lightning controls and negating the effects of that monster while it is on the field, also it cannot be Tributed or be used as Link Material. He targets "Legatus Legionis". The effect of "Capture Drone" prevents Lightning's Link Monsters from attacking. Lightning activates the effect of "Lex", Tributing an "Armatos Legio" monster to draw a card. He draws and subsequently Normal Summons "Armatos Legio Magica Alcum" (0/1600) to the zone the middle-left Link Arrow of "Legatus Legionis" points to. As "Magica Alcum" is Normal or Special Summoned to a zone Lightning's "Armatos Legio" Link Monster points to, he activates its effect, targeting a "Judgement Arrows" in his Spell & Trap Zone that Link Monster points to and preventing "Armatos Legio" monsters he controls from being destroyed by card effects this turn, also sending the targeted card to the GY, then destroying all face-up cards in Blood Shepherd's Spell & Trap Zones and Main Monster Zones. He sends "Judgment Arrows" the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Legatus Legio" points to to destroy five "Drone Tokens", "Drone Unity", "Snatch Drone", and "Capture Drone" ("Beehive": 5000 → 0 ATK). "Legatus Legionis" attacks and destroys "Beehive" (Blood Shepherd: 2300 → 0 LP).
