Turn 1: Varis

Varis activtes "Boot Sector Launch", increasing the ATK and DEF of "Rokket" monsters by 300 and activates its effect, choosing to Special Summon up to 2 "Rokket" Monsters from his hand in Defense Position. He summons "Metalrokket Dragon" (1400 → 1700) and "Shelrokket Dragon" (2000 → 2300). He then Normal Summons "Sniffer Dragon" and activate its effect as it was Normal or Special Summoned to add another copy of itself to his hand. Varis uses his three monsters to Link Summon "Voritcular Drumgon", and activates its effect as it was Special Summoned to draw a card. He activates "Link Coin" by sending a Link Monster he controls to the GY. Varis excavate the top card of his deck, equal to the sent monster's Link Rating, put a card from among them into his hand and the rest back in any order on top of his deck, and he can Special Summon the monster he sent back in his next turn. He sent "Voritcular Drumgon", excavate 3 cards, and add "Mirror Force" to his hand. Varis sets a card

Turn 2: Playmaker

As Playmaker controls no monsters, he Special Summons "Linkslayer" (2000) with its effect, and activates its another effect to discard up to 2 cards in order to destroy that many Spell or Trap cards on the field, once per turn. He discards "Latency" (0) and and destroy Varis' set card. As Varis' "Mirror Force Launcher" is destroyed while set, Varis can set it from his GY, and 1 "Mirror Force" from his deck, hand or GY, also, they can be activated this turn. Playmaker Normal Summons "ROM Cloudia" (1800) and activates its effect as it was Normal Summoned, he can target 1 Cyberse Monster in his GY and add it to his hand. He adds "Latency" and activates its effect as it was added from his GY to his hand to Special Summon it (0).

Playmaker uses his "Latency" and "ROM Cloudia" to Link Summon "Restoration Pointguard" (1000). As "Latency" is used for Link Summon as it is summoned by its own effect, Playmaker draws a card. He then uses "Pointguard" and "Linkslayer" to Link Summon "Excode Talker" to the Right Extra Monster Zone (2300). As "Excode" was Link Summoned, Playmaker can choose unused Main Monster Zones, up to the number of Monster in the Extra Monster Zone, and render them unusable. He chooses Varis' Main Monster Zone in the 2nd column, counting from Playmaker's left.

"Excode Talker" attacks directly, but Varis activates "Mirror Force" as his opponent declares an attack to destroy all opponent's attack position Monsters. As Link Monster that used "Pointguard" as Link Material is destroyed by Effect while it's in the GY, Playmaker Special Summons it. "Pointguard" attacks directly (Varis: 4000 → 3000).
