Interested in the incident that happened ten years ago, Ghost Gal challenged Playmaker to a Duel, with Ai as a wager. Learning that he will be able to obtain the program that allows him to infiltrate SOL Technologies Data Bank if he wins, Yusaku heads to LINK VRAINS. Fully aware of the risks, Yusaku still accepted Ghost Gal’s challenge in order to discover the truth about the incident that happened ten years ago. However, he faces a tough battle against Ghost Gal’s elusive "Altergeist" Deck!
Featured Duel: Playmaker vs. Ghost Gal
The Duel is conducted as a Speed Duel.
Turn 1: Ghost Gal
Ghost Gal Normal Summons "Altergeist Marionetter" (1600/1700). As "Marionetter" was Normal Summoned, Ghost Gal activates its effect, which lets her Set an "Altergeist" Trap Card from her Deck. She Sets "Altergeist Protocol". Ghost Gal Sets another card.
Turn 2: Playmaker
Playmaker Normal Summons "Cyberse Wizard" (1800/800). "Wizard" attacks "Marionetter", but Ghost Gal activates the effect of "Altergeist Kunquery" in her hand, Special Summoning it in Defense Position and negating the attack (0/2400). As "Kunquery" was Special Summoned, Ghost Gal activates its effect, allowing her to negate the effects of a monster Playmaker controls. She negates the effects of "Cyberse Wizard".
Turn 3: Ghost Gal
Ghost Gal Normal Summons a second "Marionetter" (1600/1700), activating its effect to Set "Altergeist Camouflage" from her Deck. Ghost Gal uses the two copies of "Marionetter" and "Kunquery" to Link Summon "Altergeist Primebanshee" (2100/LINK-3/↓↘→) to the Extra Monster Zone. Ghost Gal activates her face-down "Altergeist Manifestation", letting her Special Summon an "Altergeist" monster from her GY; she Special Summons "Marionetter" (1600/1700). Ghost Gal activates her face-down "Altergeist Protocol". She then activates the second effect of "Marionetter", allowing her to send a face-up "Altergeist" card she controls to the GY to Special Summon an "Altergeist" monster from her GY. She sends "Altergeist Protocol" to the GY and Special Summons the other "Marionetter" (1600/1700). Ghost Gal activates the effect of "Primebanshee", which lets her Tribute an "Altergeist" monster to Special Summon another "Altergeist" monster from her Deck to a zone that "Primebanshee" points to. She Tributes a "Marionetter" to Special Summon "Altergeist Meluseek" (500/300) to the bottom Link Point of "Primebanshee". Ghost Gal Sets a card.
The effect of "Meluseek" lets it attack Playmaker directly (Playmaker: 4000 → 3500 LP). As "Meluseek" inflicted battle damage to Playmaker, Ghost Gal activates its effect, allowing her to send a card Playmaker controls to the GY. She sends "Cyberse Wizard" to the GY. "Marionetter" attacks Playmaker directly (3500 → 1900 LP).
