"Fan the Flames", known as "Two Flames Unite" in the Japanese version, is the eighty-ninth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime. It first aired in Japan on February 13, 2019, and aired in Canada on October 18, 2020.

Soulburner has been driven into a corner by Windy's "Stormriders". However, the flame in his heart is still burning bright. As he becomes enraged after learning why Windy attacked his own partner, Soulburner and Flame do something unexpected...

Summary[edit]

The effects of the revived "Heatleo" are negated by "Stormrider Blast".

Soulburner and Windy face off in the abandoned airport of Mirror LINK VRAINS; Soulburner on 600 LP and Windy still on 4000, something Blue Maiden notes. Aqua adds that all of Soulburner's monsters have been destroyed, while Windy has "Stormridership Bahamut Bomber" on his field. Ai notes that Soulburner and Flame will have to use their Spell and Trap Cards carefully, though Playmaker believes that they will find a way. Varis remains silent, while Kolter urges Theodore not to lose. Soulburner declares his turn and draws, then he activates the Spell Card "Salamangreat Performance" since he has less LP than Windy, allowing him to add a Level 4 or lower "Salamangreat" monster from his Deck to his hand with the same name as one in his Graveyard, and he selects "Salamangreat Fowl". Then he activates the effect of "Salamangreat Mole" from his Graveyard as he controls no monsters, banishing it to return five "Salamangreat" cards from his Graveyard to his Deck ("Fowl", "Performance", "Salamangreat Beat Bison", "Salamangreat Roar" and "Salamangreat Heatleo") and then draw two cards. Next Soulburner activates the Equip Spell Card "Rising Fire" since he controls no monsters, Special Summoning a FIRE monster from his Graveyard and equipping it with "Rising Fire" to increase its ATK by 500. He revives "Heatleo", which rises to 2800 ATK. Windy snickers and he activates the effect of his Field Spell Card "Stormrider Blast" as he only controls one Link Monster in his Extra Monster Zone, negating the effects of Soulburner's Link Monster since it has an equal or lower Link Rating. A tornado blasts from "Stormrider Blast", surrounding "Heatleo" with a ghostly aura, and Blue Maiden notes that Soulburner might have resurrected "Heatleo", but its effects have been negated. Aqua adds that it has lower ATK than "Bahamut Bomber", while over on the water-covered platform, Ai notes that Soulburner increased the ATK of his monster with "Rising Fire", but now that can be destroyed by the effect of "Bahamut Bomber". But Soulburner then activates another Equip Spell, "Salamangreat Sparks", which will make the ATK of the equipped monster become the same as the ATK of the monster it battles, and if it's destroyed and sent to the Graveyard, Soulburner can Special Summon up to two "Salamangreat Tokens" to either of their fields in Defense Position. Windy notes that Soulburner is aiming for mutual destruction, but he notes that the effect of "Bahamut Bomber" will just destroy that Equip Card.

Soulburner equips the reincarnated "Heatleo" with "Salamangreat Claw".

Soulburner asks if Windy's sure, much to Windy's surprise, and Soulburner explains that he's equipping "Sparks" to "Bahamut Bomber". Windy yells "What?!" and as "Sparks" is equipped, Ai is shocked that Soulburner is equipping it to his opponent's monster. Playmaker congratulates Soulburner; if "Sparks" is destroyed, then Token monsters will be Summoned to Windy's field and prevent him from using the effect of "Stormrider Blast". Windy clenches his fist in fury, but Soulburner isn't done yet, and he activates a third Equip Spell, "Salamangreat Claw", equipping it to "Heatleo" and replacing one of its maw-shaped claws with a bladed one. He explains that it will prevent "Heatleo" from being destroyed by battle or card effects, much Windy's anger. Flame declares that now it won't be mutual destruction; only "Bahamut Bomber" will be destroyed. Windy snaps that makes it the annoying card, and he activates the effect of "Bahamut Bomber", destroying a card in Soulburner's Spell & Trap Zone to inflict 500 damage to him. He tells "Salamangreat Claw" to vanish as "Bahamut Bomber" echolocates around "Claw", destroying it and reducing Soulburner to 100 LP. Windy comments that Soulburner can still go for mutual destruction, but it would be bad to lose "Heatleo" when he only has 100 LP. Soulburner grins that he had been waiting for the effect of "Bahamut Bomber", much to Windy's surprise, and Soulburner Summons "Salamangreat Falco", then Special Summons "Salamangreat Fowl" from his hand since he Normal or Special Summoned another "Salamangreat" monster. He chants "Appear! The circuit that changes the future!" and explains that the Summoning condition is one Level 4 or lower Cyberse monster, setting "Falco" to Link Summon the Link-1 "Salamangreat Balelynx". Windy reminds Soulburner that the effect of "Blast" will negate the effect of "Balelynx", and "Blast" appears and blasts a tornado at "Balelynx", surrounding it with the ghostly aura. But sending "Falco" to the Graveyard has activated its effect, allowing Soulburner to Set "Claw" from his Graveyard. Soulburner chants "Appear again! The circuit that changes the future!" and he declares that the Summoning conditions are two FIRE Effect Monsters, setting "Balelynx" and "Fowl" to Link Summon the Link-2 "Salamangreat Sunlight Wolf". Windy angrily orders the effect of "Stormrider Blast" again, blasting the tornado out to negate the effects of "Sunlight Wolf". Soulburner isn't done yet, and he activates the effect of the Field Spell Card "Salamangreat Sanctuary", using "Heatleo" as the entire material to Reincarnation Link Summon another Link-3 "Salamangreat Heatleo". The sight of the flaming "Heatleo" enrages Windy, and he declares the effect of "Stormrider Blast" again, but Soulburner tells him that it's pointless, and he equips the reincarnated "Heatleo" with "Salamangreat Claw", explaining that if the equipped monster was Reincarnation Link Summoned, it can attack a number of times equal to its Link Rating every Battle Phase. Flame states that "Heatleo" is Link-3, and Soulburner declares that now "Heatleo" can't be destroyed by battle or card effects, and can attack three times. Windy shrieks "Th-three times?" but protests that "Bahamut Bomber" still has the higher ATK. Flame asks Windy if he forgot that "Bahamut Bomber" is equipped with "Sparks", which will make its ATK the same as the monster it battles. Windy begs Soulburner not to do it, but Soulburner declares battle and orders "Heatleo" to attack "Bahamut Bomber". "Heatleo" lunges towards "Bahamut Bomber", piercing its interior and emerging from the other side, destroying it. Soulburner reminds Windy that "Sparks" is now destroyed since "Bahamut Bomber" was destroyed, and Windy screams "Noooo!" The effect of the destroyed "Sparks" activates, Special Summoning two "Salamangreat Tokens" to Windy's field with 0 DEF. Soulburner explains that the effect of "Salamangreat Claw" will allow the equipped "Heatleo" to inflict piercing battle damage. Playmaker realizes what will happen if Soulburner attacks a Token, and Ai cheers that he can still attack twice more. Soulburner declares battle again, and Windy screams that this is bad and he begs Soulburner to stop, but Flame just tells him to stop being pathetic. "Heatleo" attacks a "Token", slashing through it and reducing Windy to 1700 LP. Ai cheers that the next attack will end it, and Soulburner declares that this is the end as flames light in his eyes and "Heatleo" attacks the other Token.

Despite the dangers presented by Windy's Deck, Soulburner still wants to Set a card.

Windy freaks out as "Heatleo" charges forwards, but then he laughs that he's just kidding, much to Soulburner and Flame's shock. Windy leaps up on Echo's shoulder and activates the effect of "Stormrider Gulldiver" from his hand, sending it to the Graveyard to halve the battle damage he would take and end the Battle Phase. Soulburner gasps "What?" as "Heatleo" destroys the other "Token", reducing Windy to 550 LP and he comments that it's too bad; he survived. Soulburner asks why, as Windy is now down to less than 1000 LP - and then he realizes, and he asks if Windy can use a Skill. Windy sneers at them, asking if they only just realized that, and he declares that he can use his Skill even during a Master Duel; they were so eager to attack him that it backfired. Soulburner scowls and Windy boasts that his excellent acting tricked Soulburner, so he tried to win quickly; they're the ones who lost their cool. Ai is visibly trying to keep his own cool, while Playmaker notes that this is why Windy didn't use the effect of "Gulldiver" to stop the first attack. Windy then banishes "Gulldiver" from his Graveyard to activate its other effect, Special Summoning "Bahamut Bomber" from his Graveyard with its ATK halved to 1400 and its effects negated. The effect of "Blast" then increases its ATK by 400, and then another 300 for every "Stormrider" Field Spell in his Graveyard, to 2100. Flame quickly gasps Soulburner's name, and Soulburner replies that he knows, activating the Spell Card "Salamangreat Sublimation" to Tribute "Sunlight Wolf" and gain LP equal to its ATK. He rises to 1900 LP, and adds that he can also draw a card, which he declares that he'll Set. Flame asks him to wait, stating that the effect of "Bahamut Bomber" might be negated, but Windy will have other countermeasures against Set cards and they should proceed cautiously. Soulburner brashly replies that he'll still Set his card, and Flame begs him to calm down, but Soulburner doesn't reply and Flame resignedly tells him to do whatever he likes. Soulburner Sets the card, ending his turn. Windy bursts out laughing, incredulous that Soulburner actually Set the card and he comments to Flame that Soulburner ignored his warning; this is why he said that partners are a nuisance, though Flame doesn't reply.

"Salamangreat Heatleo" is treated as a Continuous Spell by the effect of Windy's new "Stormriderflagship Bahamut Bomber Custom".

Windy comments that he's coming, and he declares his turn and draws, returning the banished "Stormridership Stolastorm" to his field, and due to the effect of "Stormrider Blast", "Stolastorm" gains 700 ATK, rising to 2200. Windy backflips up onto Echo's head, and he raises his hand, declaring that it's getting exciting. Winds begin to blow and a Data Storm erupts from the sky and descends towards Windy as he explains that since he has 1000 or less LP, he can add a random Link Monster from the Data Storm to his Extra Deck. He activates his Skill, "Storm Access" and materializes a card in front of him. Flame is shocked by the notion of using a Skill during a Master Duel and he protests that's cheating. Windy cheerfully thanks him for the praise and then chants "Appear! The circuit that rages before me!" He declares that the Summoning conditions are at least two "Stormrider" Link Monsters and sets "Stolastorm" and the Link-3 "Bahamut Bomber" in the Link Arrows, and Soulburner is shocked that Windy is using "Bahamut Bomber" to Link Summon. Windy Link Summons the Link-4 "Stormriderflagship Bahamut Bomber Custom", which gains ATK due to "Stormrider Blast", rising it from 3000 to 3700 ATK and Soulburner gasps the ATK value in shock, while Flame observes the new "Bahamut Bomber". Windy then dramatically activates the effect of "Bahamut Bomber Custom" as he has no cards in his Spell & Trap Zone, allowing him to treat one of Soulburner's monsters as a Continuous Spell Card. "Heatleo" shifts Zones and crystallizes as Soulburner gasps "What?!" and Windy declares that now "Salamangreat Claw" will be destroyed. "Claw" explodes as Soulburner grits his teeth and Windy casually stands on his hands on Echo's head as he activates the other effect of "Bomber Custom", destroying all the cards in Soulburner's Spell & Trap Zones and inflicting 500 damage for each - and Soulburner can't activate cards or effects in response. Windy waves goodbye to "Heatleo" and Soulburner's annoying Set card, and "Bomber Custom" echolocates and destroys both cards, reducing Soulburner to 900 LP. Windy cheers that he's all cleaned up, and Flame notes that just as he expected, Windy destroyed their Set card and Soulburner agrees. Windy comments that if Soulburner had listened to Flame he'd have avoided taking excess damage. Does he understand? Ignis are superior to humans, though Windy doesn't think that this applies to Ignis that side with humans. Well out of Windy's range at the water-covered platform, Ai isn't happy at being indirectly insulted. Windy declares his Battle Phase, and he declares that this is the end and he orders "Bahamut Bomber Custom" to attack Soulburner directly. As "Bahamut Bomber Custom's" armaments glow with blue light, Windy claims that he said the wind would blow out their fire.

The spirit of "Salamangreat Balelynx" protects "Salamangreat Falco" from being destroyed.

Soulburner asks Windy if he's sure, and he declares that he'll use a Trap Card. Windy mockingly asks where the Trap is, and Flame comments that Windy was so eager to win that he lost his cool. Windy asks "What?" and Soulburner reveals that it's the card that Windy just sent to his Graveyard, much to the shock of the Wind Ignis. Soulburner banishes the Trap Card "Salamangreat Ascetic" from his Graveyard to activate its effect, returning a "Salamangreat" Link Monster from his Graveyard to his Extra Deck, then Special Summoning a "Salamangreat" monster from his Graveyard in Defense Position with its effects negated. He returns "Sunlight Wolf" to his Extra Deck, then Special Summons "Falco". Windy stamps his foot angrily and he tells Soulburner to just give up, attacking "Falco" with "Bahamut Bomber Custom". "Bahamut Bomber Custom" releases a bombardment of blue light, but Soulburner activates the effect of "Balelynx" from his Graveyard as a "Salamangreat" would be destroyed by battle or card effect, banishing "Balelynx" instead. The specter of "Balelynx" intercepts the attack, and Flame declares that they expected Windy to destroy "Ascetic", so they were able to activate its effect. Windy stamps his foot again, furious that they knew he'd destroy it, and he ends his turn. Soulburner triumphantly declares that Windy wasn't able to blow out their flame, but Windy flippantly replies that he still has "Bahamut Bomber Custom", and as long as he has "Stormrider Blast", Soulburner must attack "Bomber Custom", so his next turn will still be his last. Soulburner agrees that he's in a desperate situation, and he'll have to bet on his next draw. Windy laughs, commenting that it's a lot of responsibility for Soulburner, calling him "Mr. Partner" and reminding him that Flame's fate rests on that draw. Flame replies that he believes in their future, and Soulburner says "Future? Ours?" "Yes. Ours," Flame replies. Soulburner grins, calling Flame "partner" in Japanese and agreeing. He suggests that they bet everything on this draw, and admits that he can't use his Skill, but he declares his turn as flames light in his eyes, and he comments that he feels like a Burning Draw as he draws.

He's drawn "Salamangreat Gazelle", and he and Flame are both pleased by his draw. Soulburner Summons "Salamangreat Gazelle" and activates its effect as it was Summoned, sending another "Salamangreat" monster from his Deck to his Graveyard except another "Gazelle". He sends "Salamangreat Spinny" to his Graveyard and activates its own effect as he controls a different "Salamangreat" monster, Special Summoning "Spinny" from his Graveyard. Windy laughs, commenting that those cute monsters are nothing compared to "Bomber Custom". Soulburner comments that Windy won't be saying that later, and he holds up his Duel Disk, declaring that this is their new stage.

To Windy's shock, Soulburner Xyz Summons "Salamangreat Miragestallio".
"Heatleo" destroys "Bahamut Bomber Custom".

He overlays the Level 3 "Gazelle" and "Spinny", and Windy chokes "Xyz?" in shock. Soulburner uses his two monsters to build the Overlay Network, creating his one from a burst of fire and chanting "Xyz Summon! The flaming wild horse that cuts through illusions! Rank 3 Salamangreat Miragestallio!" He activates the effect of "Miragestallio", detaching an Overlay Unit to Special Summon a "Salamangreat" monster from his Deck in Defense Position. He Special Summons "Beat Bison" and activates its effect, returning FIRE Link Monsters from his Graveyard to his Extra Deck to negate the effects of the same number of cards Windy controls, returning two "Heatleo" to negate the effects of "Bahamut Bomber Custom" and the Field Spell "Stormrider Blast", which reduces the ATK of "Bahamut Bomber Custom" back to 3000 as Windy growls in frustration. Soulburner then chants "Appear! The circuit that changes the future!" and declares that the Summoning conditions are at least two FIRE Effect Monsters, setting "Miragestallio", "Falco" and "Beat Bison" to Link Summon the Link-3 "Salamangreat Heatleo". This activates the effect of "Miragestallio", as it was Xyz Summoned and sent to the Graveyard as Link Material for the Link Summon of a "Salamangreat" Link Monster, returning a monster on the field to the hand. Windy screams "What?!" and clenches his fists in fury, then activates the effect of "Stormrider Tubieloof" from his hand, sending it to the Graveyard to negate that effect. The crazed Wind Ignis screams that he isn't done yet and that he can keep fighting, but Soulburner declares that his wind has already stopped blowing and he activates the effect of "Salamangreat Sanctuary" and declares a Reincarnation Link Summon as "Heatleo" is engulfed in flame and enters the portal, Soulburner chanting "Resurrect, the king of beasts! Salamangreat Heatleo!" The flaming "Heatleo" emerges from the portal, and Soulburner activates the effect of the Reincarnation Link Summoned "Heatleo", making the ATK of the "Spinny" in his Graveyard and the ATK of "Bahamut Bomber Custom" the same. As "Heatleo" gathers a surge of fire in its jaws, Windy begs Soulburner not to do it, but Soulburner just declares "Flame Possession" as the twister of fire enters "Bahamut Bomber Custom" and reduces it to 1000 ATK. Windy curses and shrieks as he clutches his head, asking why this is happening, and Flame declares that Windy claimed that wind blows out fires, but fire can burn harder than wind. Windy shrieks at him to stop messing around, and Soulburner declares his Battle Phase, attacking "Bahamut Bomber Custom" with "Heatleo's" "Inferno Strike" attack. "Heatleo" engulfs itself in flames and corkscrews through "Bahamut Bomber Custom's" engine, before emerging and turning to see "Bahamut Bomber Custom" explode in a bright glare. Windy and Echo are blasted back, Echo disintegrating as Windy's LP falls to zero, and Windy crashes and flips onto the pavement with a scream.

Flame absorbs Windy's data.

Windy struggles to get up, angrily asking why he lost. Flame replies that it's because Windy was only trying to satisfy himself, and Windy asks "Myself?" Flame explains that in partnership, they must know and respect one another to create a new path, which gives them strength to overcome their limits. Soulburner states that Windy now longer has that after ending his partner and shakes his head sadly.

Windy is suddenly engulfed in flames, and he cries out in fear, protesting that he only lost because he lost his cool and screaming for Lightning. But in his palace, Lightning is simply sitting on Jin's shoulder, musing that there is no cure for the foolish. Flame leaves Soulburner's Duel Disk and flies over to Windy with his arms outstretched, telling him that he'll hold onto his data. Windy begs him not to do it as orange particles begin flowing into Flame, and Windy vows that he won't forget this hatred, declaring that he is cursing Flame as he vanishes. Soulburner closes his eyes and whispers "curse..." and Flame lowers his arms and looks at the aurora barrier, claiming that A.I. don't have curses.

Featured Duel: Soulburner vs. Windy[edit]

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Soulburner has 600 LP and controls "Salamangreat Sanctuary" in his Field Zone. Windy has 4000 LP and controls "Stormridership Bahamut Bomber" (3500/↙↓↘) in the Extra Monster Zone, as well as "Stormrider Blast" in his Field Zone.

Turn 4: Soulburner
As his LP are lower than this opponent's, Soulburner activates "Salamangreat Performance", letting him target a Level 4 or lower "Salamangreat" monster in his GY and add a card with the same name from his Deck to his hand. He adds a copy of "Salamangreat Fowl". As he controls no monsters, Soulburner then activates the effect of the "Salamangreat Mole" in his GY, banishing it to return 5 "Salamangreat" cards from his GY to his Deck, then draw two cards. He returns "Fowl", "Performance", "Salamangreat Beat Bison" and "Salamangreat Roar" to his Deck and "Salamangreat Heatleo" to his Extra Deck and draws 2 cards. As he controls no monsters, Soulburner activates "Rising Fire", letting him Special Summon a FIRE monster from his GY and equip it with "Rising Fire", increasing its ATK by 500. He Special Summons "Heatleo" (2300 → 2800/↙↑↘). As Windy controls only 1 "Stormrider" Link Monster, the effect of "Stormrider Blast" negates the effects of all Link Monsters his opponent controls with an equal or lower Link Rating than the "Stormrider" he controls. In this case, the Link-3 "Stormridership Bahamut Bomber". The effects of "Heatleo" are negated. Soulburner equips "Bahamut Bomber" with "Salamangreat Sparks". Now, if it battles an opponent's monster, its ATK will become equal to the current ATK of the monster it's battling during damage calculation. Soulburner then equips "Heatleo" with "Salamangreat Claw", which will prevent the equipped monster from being destroyed by battle or card effects and allow it to inflict piercing battle damage. As he controls no cards in his Spell & Trap Zone, Windy activates the effect of "Bahamut Bomber", destroying a card Soulburner controls and inflicting 500 damage. He destroys "Claw" (Soulburner: 600 → 100).

Soulburner Normal Summons "Salamangreat Falco" (1200/1600). As a "Salamangreat" monster besides "Fowl" was Normal or Special Summoned, Soulburner activates the effect of the "Fowl" in his hand, Special Summoning it (1800/200) in Attack Position. Soulburner sets "Falco" in the Link Arrow to Link Summon "Salamangreat Balelynx" (500/↓) to the Extra Monster Zone. "Stormrider Blast" negates its effects. As "Falco" was sent to the GY, its effect activates, letting Soulburner Set a "Salamangreat" Spell/Trap Card from his GY. He Sets "Claw". Soulburner sets "Balelynx" and "Fowl" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Salamangreat Sunlight Wolf" (1800/↑↓). Its effects are negated by "Blast". Soulburner activates the effect of "Salamangreat Sanctuary" to set "Heatleo" in the Link Arrows to Reincarnation Link Summon another copy of "Heatleo" (2300/↙↑↘). Soulburner equips his Set "Claw" to "Heatleo". When "Claw" is equipped to a Reincarnation Link Summoned monster, it can attack a number of times equal to its Link Rating.

"Healeo" attacks "Bahamut Bomber", with the effect of the equipped "Sparks" making the ATK of "Bahamut Bomber" equal to that of the monster it is battling (2800 → 2300). The effect of "Claw" prevents the destruction of "Heatleo" by battle, so only "Bahamut Bomber" is destroyed. As "Sparks" was sent to the Graveyard, its effect activates, letting Soulburner Special Summon two "Salamangreat Tokens" to either side of the field. He Special Summons them to Windy's field (0/0 each). "Heatleo" attacks and destroys a "Salamangreat Token", with "Claw" inflicting piercing battle damage (Windy: 4000 → 1700). "Heatleo" attacks a "Salamangreat Token", but Windy activates the effect of the "Stormrider Gulldiver" in his hand, sending it to the GY to halve the battle damage and end the Battle Phase. The "Token" is destroyed (Windy: 1700 → 550). As the effect of "Gulldiver" was used this turn, Windy activates its other effect, banishing it from his GY to Special Summon a "Stormrider" Link Monster from his GY with a Link Rating less than or equal to the number of monsters destroyed by battle this turn (in this case, 3), but its ATK is halved and its effects are negated. He Special Summons "Bahamut Bomber" (2800 → 1400/↙↓↘). The effect of "Blast" increases the ATK of all "Stormrider" Link Monsters by 400, plus another 300 for each "Stormrider" Field Spell Card in the GY ("Bahamut Bomber": 1400 → 2100). Soulburner activates "Salamangreat Sublimation", Tributing a "Salamangreat" monster to gain LP equal to its ATK and draw a card. He Tributes "Sunlight Wolf" (Soulburner: 100 → 1900). Soulburner Sets the card he just drew.

Turn 5: Windy
During the Standby Phase, "Stormridership Stolastorm" returns to the field (1500 → 2200/↓). As he has 1000 or fewer LP, Windy activates his Skill, Storm Access, letting him add a random Link Monster in the Data Storm to his Extra Deck. He adds "Stormriderflagship Bahamut Bomber Custom". Windy sets "Stolastorm" and "Bahamut Bomber" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Stormriderflagship Bahamut Bomber Custom" (3000 → 3700/←↙↘→). As he controls no cards in his Spell & Trap Card Zone, Windy activates the effect of "Bahamut Bomber Custom", letting him treat one of Soulburner's monsters as a Continuous Spell Card. "Heatleo" is moved to the Spell & Trap Card Zone. As he controls no cards in his Spell & Trap Card Zone, Windy activates the other effect of "Custom", destroying as many cards in his opponent's Spell & Trap Card Zone as possible and inflicting 500 damage per card. This effect cannot be responded to. "Heatleo" and Soulburner's Set card are destroyed (Soulburner: 1900 → 900). "Custom" attacks directly, but Soulburner activates the effect of the "Salamangreat Ascetic" in his GY, banishing it to target a "Salamangreat" Link Monster and a non-Link "Salamangreat" monster in his Graveyard, returning the Link Monster to his Extra Deck and Special Summoning the other monster in Defense Position with its effects negated. He returns "Sunlight Wolf" to the Extra Deck and Special Summons "Falco" (1200/1600). A replay occurs and "Custom" attacks "Falco". Soulburner activates the effect of the "Balelynx" in his GY, banishing it to prevent the destruction of his "Salamangreat" monster by battle.

Turn 6: Soulburner
Soulburner draws and Normal Summons "Salamangreat Gazelle" (1500/1000). As it was Normal Summoned, its effect activates, letting Soulburner send a "Salamangreat" monster besides "Gazelle" from his Deck to his GY. He sends "Salamangreat Spinny". As he controls a "Salamangreat" monster besides "Spinny" and "Spinny" is in his GY, Soulburner activates the effect of "Spinny", Special Summoning it (1000/1500) in Defense Position. Soulburner overlays his two Level 3 monsters to Xyz Summon "Salamangreat Miragestallio" (2000/900) in Attack Position. Soulburner activates the effect of "Miragestallio", detaching an Overlay Unit to Special Summon a "Salamangreat" monster from his Deck in Defense Position, but this will prevent him from activating monster effects of non-FIRE monsters for the rest of the turn. He Special Summons "Beat Bison" (2800/1000). He activates the effect of "Beat Bison", letting him target FIRE Link Monsters in his GY up to the number of face-up cards his opponent controls and return them to the Extra Deck, then he can negate the effects of cards his opponent controls up to the number of cards returned. He returns two copies of "Heatleo" to to negate the effects of "Custom" and "Blast" ("Custom": 3700 → 3000). Soulburner sets "Miragestallio", "Falco" and "Beat Bison" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Heatleo" (2300/↙↑↘). As "Miragestalio" was used as Link Material for a "Salamangreat" monster, its effect activates, letting Soulburner return a monster on the field to the hand. He targets "Custom", but Windy activates the effect of the "Stormrider Tubieloof" in his hand, sending it to the GY to negate a monster effect. Soulburner activates the effect of "Sanctuary", setting "Heatleo" in the Link Arrows to Reincarnation Link Summon another copy of "Heatleo" (2300/↙↑↘). As it was Reincarnation Link Summoned, its effect activates, letting Soulburner target a monster his opponent controls and change its ATK to that of a monster in his GY. He targets "Custom" and "Spinny" ("Custom" 3000 → 1000). "Heatleo" attacks and destroys "Custom" (Windy: 550 → 0).
