Syrus Truesdale then takes Zane's Duel Disk in mid-Duel, announcing that he will finish the Duel in his brother's place. Despite that comment, when Makoto and Syrus Duel, they start the Duel over from the beginning, with Makoto ultimately losing.
True to form, Makoto runs a Jinzo Art Deck, featuring the "Jinzo" monsters and a control strategy which focuses on limiting his opponents' options of counterattacking. His "Jinzo" prevents any Trap Cards from activating or being in effect, while, as added insurance that stronger monsters cannot defeat "Jinzo", "Crush Card Virus" (with "Jinzo - Returner" serving as its Tribute) prevents the opponent from using monsters with more than 1500 ATK. His strongest monster, "Jinzo - Lord", can not only prevent the use of Traps, but also destroy Traps and inflict effect damage.
