Featured Duel: Gong Strong vs. Dennis McField

Dennis VS Gong

Show Must Go On.

At the start of the Duel, the Field Spell Card "Crossover" is activated, as per the rules of an Action Duel. It will allow the players to use Action Cards, but they may only have one in their hand at a time.

Turn 1: Dennis
Dennis activates "Hot Surprise", which lets him Special Summon a Level 4 or lower FIRE monster from his hand to his opponent's side of the field. He Special Summons "Performage Plushfire" (1000/1000) to Gong's side of the field. Since his opponent controls a monster while he doesn't, Dennis Special Summons "Performage Wind Drainer" (2100/0) from his hand via its own effect. Since there are "Performage" monsters on the field, Dennis activates "Performance Mage Hurricane", which allows him to return all Spell and Trap Cards on the field to their owners' hands. "Hot Surprise" returns to Dennis' hand. Since "Hot Surprise" left the field, its other effect activates, which destroys the monster Special Summoned by its effect and inflicts 400 damage to Gong (Gong: 4000 → 3600 LP). Dennis Sets a card.

Turn 2: Gong
Before Gong's Draw Phase, Dennis activates his face-down "Mage's Fortress". As long as Dennis controls a Spellcaster-Type monster, Gong cannot declare an attack. Since Gong has no Spell/Trap Cards in his Graveyard, he sends "Superheavy Samurai Soulhorns" from his hand to the Graveyard to Special Summon "Superheavy Samurai Trumpter" (300/600) from his hand via its own effect. He Normal Summons "Superheavy Samurai Scales" (800/1800). As "Scales" was Normal or Special Summoned, its effect activates, which lets Gong Special Summon a "Superheavy Samurai" monster from his Graveyard. He Special Summons "Soulhorns" (0/300) in Attack Position. Gong tunes the Level 4 "Scales" with the Level 2 Tuner monster "Trumpeter" to Synchro Summon "Superheavy Samurai Ogre Shutendoji" (500/2500) in Defense Position. "Shutendoji" may attack while in Defense Position, with its DEF being applied for damage calculation instead of its ATK. Since it was Synchro Summoned while there were no Spell/Trap Cards in Gong's Graveyard, he activates its effect, destroying all Spell/Trap Cards Dennis controls. This activates the other effect of "Mage's Fortress", as it was destroyed, allowing Dennis to draw a card. Since a "Superheavy Samurai" Synchro Monster was Special Summoned, Gong Special Summons "Superheavy Samurai Soulclaw" (500/500) from his hand via its own effect. Gong equips "Shutendoji" with "Soulhorns" via its own effect. Gong also equips "Shutendoji" with "Soulclaw" via its own effect, which also increases the equipped monster's ATK and DEF by 500 ("Shutendoji" 500/2500 → 1000/3000), and it cannot be destroyed by battle. "Shutendoji" attacks and destroys "Drainer" (Dennis: 4000 → 3100 LP). Since Gong has no Spell/Trap Cards in his Graveyard, the effect of the equipped "Soulhorns" allows the equipped monster to make a second attack during each Battle Phase. "Shutendoji" attacks directly (Dennis: 3100 → 100 LP).

Turn 3: Dennis
Dennis activates "Performage Mirror Conductor" (Right Pendulum Scale 3) and "Performage Fire Dancer" (Left Pendulum Scale 6) in his Pendulum Zones. Dennis Pendulum Summons "Plushfire" (1000/1000) and "Wind Drainer" (2100/0) from his Extra Deck, both in Attack Position. Since "Wind Drainer" was Special Summoned, Dennis activates its effect, reducing its Level by 1 ("Wind Drainer": CG Star 5 → 4). He then overlays his two Level 4 monsters to Xyz Summon "Performage Trapeze Magician" (2500/2000) in Attack Position. He activates the Pendulum Effect of "Mirror Conductor", which changes the ATK and DEF of each Special Summoned monster his opponent controls equal to the lowest value of the two. The DEF of "Shutendoji" becomes equal to its ATK ("Shutendoji" 1000/3000 → 1000/1000). Dennis then activates the Pendulum Effect of "Fire Dancer", which lets a monster he controls inflict piercing battle damage to his opponent. Dennis selects "Trapeze Magician". He then activates the effect of "Trapeze Magician", detaching an Overlay Unit to allow a monster to attack twice during each Battle Phase this turn. Dennis selects "Trapeze Magician". "Trapeze Magician" attacks "Shutendoji" twice, but "Shutendoji" cannot be destroyed by battle because of "Soulclaw", though piercing battle damage is still inflicted (Gong: 3600 → 2100 → 600 LP).

Turn 4: Gong
Gong activates the other effect of "Soulhorns" and "Soulclaw", which allows him to unequip them from "Shutendoji" and Special Summon both in Defense Position. The Pendulum Effect of "Mirror Conductor" changes both the ATK and DEF of "Soulhorns" to the lowest of those values ("Soulhorns" 0/300 → 0/0). Since "Soulclaw" was unequipped from "Shutendoji", its ATK and DEF return to their original values ("Shutendoji" 1000/1000 → 500/500). Gong Normal Summons "Superheavy Samurai Drum" (300/300). He tunes the Level 6 "Shutendoji", Level 2 "Soulclaw" and Level 1 "Soulhorns" with the Level 1 Tuner monster "Drum" to Synchro Summon "Superheavy Samurai Warlord Susanowo" (2400/3800) in Defense Position. Since a monster was Special Summoned, the Pendulum Effect of "Mirror Conductor" changes both the ATK and DEF of "Susanowo" to the lowest of the two values ("Susanowo" 2400/3800 → 2400/2400). Gong activates the effect of "Susanowo"; while it is in Defense Position and he has no Spell Cards in his Graveyard, he can pay 500 LP to activate a Spell Card from Dennis' Graveyard. He activates "Performance Mage Hurricane" (Gong: 600 → 100 LP), which allows him to return all Spell and Trap Cards on the field to their owners' hands since there is a "Performage" monster on the field. Since "Mirror Conductor" left the field, its Pendulum Effect is no longer applied and the DEF of "Susanowo" returns to normal ("Susanowo" 2400/2400 → 2400/3800). "Susanowo" may attack while in Defense Position, with its DEF being applied for damage calculation instead of its ATK. "Susanowo" attacks and destroys "Trapeze Magician" (Dennis: 100 → 0 LP).
