Featured Duels: Dark Yugi VS Dark Marik

... continued from the previous chapter

Turn 4:"Dark Yugi
Dark Yugi chooses not to attack with his three knights and ends his turn (due to Marik's face down card).

Turn 5: Dark Marik
Dark Marik's hand contains "De-Fusion." Dark Marik draws "Card of Sanctity" and subsequently activates it, forcing both players to draw until they are holding six cards. (NOTE 1: In the real game, "Card of Sanctity" removes all the player's cards in the hand and from side of the field, in exchange for drawing until one holds 2 cards.) One of the cards that Yugi draws is "Slifer the Sky Dragon". Dark Marik Sets a card and switches "Juragedo" to Defense Position.

Turn 6: Dark Yugi
Dark Yugi draws. He then Tributes "Jack's Knight", "King's Knight" and "Queen's Knight" in order to Tribute Summon "Slifer the Sky Dragon" in Attack Position (X000/X000). The effect of "Slifer" increases its ATK and DEF by the number of cards in Dark Yugi's hand x 1000. There are currently six ("Slifer": X000 → 6000/X000 → 6000). "Slifer" attacks "Juragedo", but Dark Marik activates his face down "Revival of the Dark," allowing him to activate a Spell Card from Dark Yugi's Graveyard immediately. He activates "Monster Reborn" from Dark Yugi's Graveyard in order to Special Summon "The Sun Dragon Ra" (????/????) from his graveyard in Defense Position. Dark Marik chooses to Summon "Ra" in its "Egyptian God Phoenix" mode. Since "Ra" was Special Summoned in Defense Position, its effect activates, switching Slifer's Attack target to itself. The attack fails, as "Ra" cannot be destroyed while in "Phoenix" mode.
