Featured Duel: Yami Yugi vs. Arkana, Part 2
Turn 5: Yami
Yami draws. He then Normal Summons "Beta The Magnet Warrior" (1700/1600) in Attack Position. Because Yami summoned a monster, Arkana activates Set Trap Card "Dark Renewal", sending both "Beta The Magnet Warrior" and "Mystic Tomato" to the Graveyard in order to Special Summon his "Dark Magician" from the Graveyard (2500/2100) in Attack Position. Yami Sets 2 cards.
Turn 10: Arkana
Arkana draws. He then Sets 1 card. Next Arkana activates Set Magic Card "Mystic Guillotine" to destroy Yami's "Dark Magician". Yami activates Set Quick-Play Magic Card "Magical Hats" to create four Hats, hide his "Dark Magician in one of them and shuffle the hats up. "Mystical Guillotine" destroys a "Hat", but it turns out to be empty. Arkana activates Set Magic Card "Thousand Knives" to automatically destroy the hat that contains Yami's "Dark Magician, but Yami activates Set Quick-Play Magic Card "Cursebreaker" to negate and destroy both "Thousand Knives" and "Magical Hats". Arkana's "Dark Magician" attacks Yami's "Dark Magician". Both monsters are then destroyed in a Double KO. Both Arkana and Yugi then activate their Set Magic Card "Monster Reborn" to Special Summon their respective "Dark Magician" from the Graveyard (2500/2100 for both) in Attack Position.
Turn 11: Yami
Yami Draws. He then passes his turn.
Turn 14: Arkana
Arkana activates Magic Card "Beckon to the Dark" to send Yami's "Dark Magician" to the Graveyard, but Yami activates Trap Card "Mystical Refpanel" to negate the effect of "Beckon to the Dark" and use the effect of "Beckon to the Dark" on Arkana's "Dark Magician" instead. Arkana replies by activating "Nightmare Chains", negating "Mystical Refpanel's" effect and destroying it. The secondary effect of "Nightmare Chains" also forbids Yami "Dark Magician" from attacking or changing its battle position. Since Yami's "Dark Magician" is the only monster he controls, the third effect of "Nightmare Chains" allows Arkana's monsters to attack Yami directly. Arkana's "Dark Magician" attacks Yami directly (Yami 4000 → 1500).
Turn 16: Arkana
Arkana draws. He then Normal Summons "Doll of Demise" (1600/1700) in Attack Position. Next he activates Magic Card "Ectoplasmer". On Arkana's End Phase, he Tributes "Doll of Demise to inflict damage to Yami equal to half of "Doll of Demise's" ATK (Yami 1500 → 700).
Turn 17: Yami
Turn 18: Arkana
On Arkana's End Phase, he tributes his "Dark Magician" to inflict damage to Yami equal to half the ATK of "Dark Magician", but since both players control a "Dark Magician" when this occurred, both "Dark Magician" are sent to the Graveyard, and all damage that Yami would have taken is negated.
