This Duel is conducted as a Battle Royal.

Turn 1: Girag

Number 39 Utopia is Summon (87)

"Number 39: Utopia" is Summoned.

Turn 3: Yuma
As he controls no monsters, Yuma Special Summons "Dododo Buster" (1900/800) from his hand via its own effect, while reducing its Level by 2, to 4. He then Normal Summons "Ganbara Knight" (0/1800). He overlays his two Level 4 monsters to Xyz Summon "Number 39: Utopia" (2500/2000) in Attack Position. Yuma Sets a card.


"Fire Hand" and "Ice Hand".

Turn 4: Girag
Girag draws "Ice Hand" and subsequently Normal Summons it (1600/1600). He overlays his two Level 4 monsters to Xyz Summon "Number 106: Giant Hand" (2000/2000) in Attack Position. "Giant Hand" attacks "Shining Destroyer", but Yuma activates the effect of "Utopia", detaching an Overlay Unit to negate the attack. Girag activates the effect of "Giant Hand" as the effect of an opponent's Effect Monster was activated, detaching an Overlay Unit to negate the effect of an Effect Monster as long as "Giant Hand" is face-up. He negates the effect of "Utopia". The attack continues and "Shining Destroyer" is destroyed (Ray 4000 → 2000). The effect of "Shining Destroyer" activates, inflicting 600 damage to all players. Girag activates his face-down "Hand Block", reducing the effect damage he takes to 0 as he controls a "Hand" monster (Yuma 4000 → 3400, Ray 2000 → 1400)

Duel continues in the next episode.
